7. Princess Tag Team Titles: Sakisama & Mei Saint-Michel (c) Vs Miyu Yamashita & Maki Itoh

Tomorrow is Miyu Yamashita’s chance to become the first Double Princess Champion in TJPW history. She was briefly a double champion in 2019 when she held the Princess Of Princess Title and SHINE Title at the same time. But Sakisama has been one of her impossible mountains to climb for almost her entire career. It was only recently she made some progress on that thanks to teaming with Maki Itoh this year. Targeting Mei Saint-Michel may be the right plan to win. If the champions win though and it’s Sakisama standing on top, everything is in place for her to do something she has never done before. Maybe Yamashita won’t be the first Double Princess Champion after all…

This week Yusuke Okada and Hisaya Imabayashi went to visit Kiyoshi Hayashishita’s steak restaurant for a meal.

Okada then discovered that his friend Hayashishita was trapped in the restroom with a big, thick sausage in his mouth. Okada freed him and they chased Dieno out of the restaurant. The final straw came when they found Dieno changed the restaurant sign, renaming the restaurant into something vulgar. Hayashishita said he is usually a forgiving man but he will not stand for this! He gave Okada an inspiring speech and encouraged him to beat Dieno at Korakuen Hall. Okada vowed to win for Big Daddy!

1. 1st Ganpro Mixed Tag Tournament – Round 1: Yumehito Imanari & Yuna Manase defeated Shota & Miss Mongol when Imanari pinned Shota with an Aerial Body Drop (10:31).
2. 1st Ganpro Mixed Tag Tournament – Round 1: Keisuke Ishii & HARUKAZE defeated Shigehiro Irie & Miyako Matsumoto when Ishii pinned Matsumoto with the Hidoiwaza (10:00).
3. Shu Sakurai Trial Single Match: Shinjiro Otani defeated Shu Sakurai with a Knifehand Strike Chop (16:45).
4. 1st Ganpro Mixed Tag Tournament – Round 1: Asuka & Shinichiro Tominaga defeated Kouki Iwasaki & Itsuki Aoki when Asuka pinned Aoki with the Safflower Robe (13:39).
5. 1st Ganpro Mixed Tag Tournament – Round 1: Shuichiro Katsumura & Moeka Haruhi defeated Ken Ohka & Cherry when Katsumura submitted Ohka with the Ninja Choke (16:36).

The 1st Ganpro Mixed Tag Tournament is finally under way. Every match in the opening round had a 30 minute time limit and any time limit draw would be decided with 1 Count Sudden Death rules. Most of the teams entering the tournament has their own team name to add to the fun. Also there were rumours spreading in the locker room during the show that a Mixed Tag Team Championship might be created and rewarded to the tournament winners.

In the main event Harukatsu Shoot (Shuichiro Katsumura & Moeka Haruhi) defeated Ken-chan Cherry-chan (Ken Ohka & Cherry). Katsumura blocked the Fire Spear with the Ninja Choke and held onto the move even when Ohka turned it into the Vertical Drop Brainbuster. Ohka couldn’t shake him off and had to give up. Cherry blamed Ohka for the lost and kept telling him he shouldn’t have tapped out no matter how bad his neck was getting twisted. Haruhi said her team will go on to win the tournament. They will also be defending the GWC 6-Man Tag Team Titles tomorrow outside of Ganbare☆Pro.

The Weekend Lovers of Asuka & Shinichiro Tominaga advance after beating Team Frenzy (Kouki Iwasaki & Itsuki Aoki). The teamwork shown by Weekend Lovers was the deciding factor. They used a Double Super Kick to get rid of Iwasaki then doubleteamed Aoki until the finish. Iwasaki asked Aoki if they should practice under Ikuto Hidaka to get better. Aoki suggested bringing in Munenori Sawa instead. Asuka isn’t sure if the rumours of a new championship are true but if it is then she wants to be the first champion.

The non-tournament match had Shinjiro Otani beat Shu Sakurai as part of Sakurai’s trial series. It was Yumehito Imanari’s idea to put the match together because he wants Otani to wrestle in Ganpro more often. Imanari thinks there were some NOAH fans who came to the show today because of “CYBERFIGHT FESTIVAL 2021”. He is happy to see Ganpro grow but understands there is a limit due to its size which is why he called upon Otani to help them out. The heat of Ohka and the heat of Otani combined will create a hot pot of pro wrestling!

Back to the tournament. Harukaze Kogyo (Keisuke Ishii & HARUKAZE) eliminated Kinniku Kurukuru Shojo Tai (Shigehiro Irie & Miyako Matsumoto) in an even 10 minutes. Ishii pinned Matsumoto with his modified version of the Emerald Flowsion. Irie shook his opponents’ hands after the match but ignored Matsumoto and left her alone in the ring. Backstage Irie threw in his support for a Mixed Tag Team Championship to be created. He’d fight for one with a different tag partner though. Meanwhile Ishii told HARUKAZE that he wants them to fight like they are going to split up if they lose, just like how it happened with DREAMS HARU TRUE. However HARUKAZE said she is fighting with the goal of reuniting DREAMS HARU TRUE.

Last but not least, Gyaku Funka Murasaki En-gun (Yumehito Imanari & Yuna Manase) defeated the team known as Yasashiku Naritai (Shota & Miss Mongol). The power of FMW was summoned when Shota & Miss Mongol did a United Thunder Fire Power Bomb to Imanari. But Imanari blocked Shota’s Frog Splash with his knees and pinned him with a Lou Thesz Press.

The semi-finals on 27th June are Harukatsu Shoot Vs Gyaku Funka Murasaki En-gun and Weekend Lovers Vs Harukaze Kogyo. The final is held on the same day.

For a match to celebrate 19 years in the industry, Isami Kodaka has picked Kengo Mashimo as his opponent. Sometimes they get along, usually when they have to. But most of the time they don’t. There is a level of respect between them and I’m sure Mashimo will behave. With that said, he probably isn’t going to care if Kodaka gets roughed up more than usual on his special day.

6. International Princess Title: Hikari Noa (c) Vs Marika Kobashi
7. Princess Tag Team Titles: Sakisama & Mei Saint-Michel (c) Vs Miyu Yamashita & Maki Itoh

With momentum on her side Miyu Yamashita now aims to be the first Double Princess Champion in Tokyo Joshi. Her tag partner Maki Itoh was upset that Yamashita didn’t call on her to join the photo call with Jun Akiyama and Naomichi Marufuji at the end of “CYBERFIGHT FESTIVAL 2021” that was used for the front cover of the latest Weekly Pro-Wrestling issue. Yoshihiko was on it but not Itoh? Come on! Yamashita cheered her up by saying she loves her and knows it was Itoh who cheered for her the most. They’ll make it to the cover of the next issue when they win the Princess Tag Team Titles.

Mei Saint-Michel has been preparing for the match by doing everything but pro wrestling. She’s been playing the piano, writing, learning ballet, doing tea ceremonies and much more. Sakisama promises to make the challengers scream. The more she makes them scream, the more it excites her. The date of the title match was scheduled without her permission so she’ll take her anger out on 121000000.

Six years into her career, Marika Kobashi is ready for her first singles title shot. She wants to win the International Princess Title, turn it into the International Gal Title and bring it to Shibuya where she will become the strongest Gal in the world! Hikari Noa is excited for the match because it proves the IP Title is all about the individuality of the champion and her challengers. She thinks of herself as the main character and her opponents are monsters she must beat one by one.

There is a lot of attention surrounding Yuki Arai’s arrival into TJPW. She is nervous going into her first singles match but wants to show everyone what she is capable of. Her opponent Mirai Maiumi isn’t going to let her hog all the spotlight. She too understands it is an important match. An unbreakable spirit is the biggest weapon a pro wrestler can have and Arai is sure to get one from her countless supporters. To combat this, Mirai has created her own idol unit called MSS48 (Mirai Strong Style 48). She is the only member so far but will recruit anyone who has the power, speed, mentality and excellence that matches her own.

*Asuka, Hagane Shinno & Shinichiro Tominaga fail in V3. THE HALFEE become the 26th GWC 6-Man Tag Team Champions!

THE HALFEE are now two time GWC 6-Man Tag Team Champions! For Shu Sakurai this was a very memorable moment for him. His debut match took place inside Oji BASEMENT MON☆STAR and he is very happy to win back the title in the same building. Moehiko Harumisawa congratulated him for becoming a stronger wrestler. She said everybody in Ganbare☆Pro has strong character with a determination to survive. Their reward for that is winning the GWC 6-Man Tag Titles again. Katsuzaki Shunosuke said the belts originally came from Guts World. On 13th June, THE HALFEE will be wrestling for Guts World’s successor TTT (Total Triumph Team). They announced they will defend the titles against Guts Ishijima and Speed Of Sounds. Shunosuke promised that they will prove the belts belong to THE HALFEE and Ganpro!

The former champions are now trying to figure out what caused them to lose today. Hagane Shinno pointed towards a lack of teamwork between the three of them. He and Asuka both admitted they don’t like Shinichiro Tominaga very much which isn’t a good dynamic for a trio. Shinno then argued that point doesn’t make sense because Asuka & Tominaga are still teaming together for the upcoming Mixed Tag Tournament. Tominaga said that was Daisuke Kiso’s idea so it is all his fault.

Ken Ohka’s squad were victorious over Keisuke Ishii’s team in the Survival Tag Match. The match was 2 Vs 2 for the entire time until one team was whittled down to its final member. It begun with Ohka & Yumehito Imanari against Ishii & Shigehiro Irie. Over The Top Rope rules counted towards eliminations and Irie found that out the hard way. He charged towards Imanari, Imanari pulled the top rope down and Irie toppled out of the ring to be removed from the match. Kouki Iwasaki came in and Imanari didn’t last much longer. Ishii took him out with the Double Arm Driver to bring in Shota. Ohka then sacrificed himself to eliminate Ishii via Double Ring Out when he jumped off the apron while carrying Ishii over his shoulders. That brought in Yuna Mizumori (replacing an injured Yuna Manase) and HARUKAZE for the final fall. Mizumori avoided a Cross Armbreaker and pinned HARUKAZE with the Supergirl cradle for the victory. Mizumori wished for Manase to recover soon so they could team up again.

At the end of the show Ohka announced that he too would be at the TTT show. He & Imanari then promoted “CYBERFIGHT FESTIVAL 2021” on 6th June. Ohka said this is the era of Uber Eats and on 6th June you will see Uber Ganbare☆Pro!

It is being brought back with some extra rules attached. Over the top rope eliminations are in effect until a team is down to its final two wrestlers. Also the active wrestler who wins a fall cannot tag out until they make physical contact with their next opponent.

4. Ganpro Vs DDT Full Scale Battle: Keisuke Ishii & Shota defeated Shunma Katsumata & Yuki Ueno when Ishii pinned Katsumata with the Kneel Kick (11:40).
5. The Young General Of Ganpro: Kouki Iwasaki defeated Ikuto Hidaka with the Vertical Drop Reverse DDT (15:29).
6. Daihyo Vs Daihyo ~ Fluorescent Lighttube Death Match: Takashi Sasaki defeated Ken Ohka with a Right Knee through lighttubes (18:48).

Way back when Ken Ohka was a high school student, he was part of the school’s baseball team. In his senior year his coach asked him if he knew what to tell the pitcher whenever they were in a pinch. The answer is “Ganbare! (Go for it!)” Those words stayed with Ohka ever since which is how Ganbare☆Pro Wrestling got its name. He was alone when he started Ganpro but gained many friends, enough that today’s show consisted entirely of matches where Ganpro took on other promotions.

The finale highlight this with Ohka taking on the FREEDOMS head honcho Takashi Sasaki in a Lighttube Death Match. Sasaki had Tomoya Hirata & Dragon Libre in his corner. Ohka purposely wore clothing similar to what he wore on the first Ganpro show eight years ago. Glass was smashed as the two fought. Ohka hit the Flame Spear but only got a two count. He went for another one with lighttubes in his arms but Sasaki smashed the glass with a Middle Kick. Ohka kicked out of a Superplex onto a pile of chairs then kicked out again after Sasaki smashed lighttubes into him with a Buzzsaw Kick. Sasaki finally put Ohka away with a Kamigoye style Right Knee through more lighttubes.

After the match Sasaki explained his history with Ohka to the fans in attendance. When Ohka first came to DDT he was a bad trainee who couldn’t do anything. According to Sasaki, he had to teach Ohka how to wrestle from scratch. This year when Ohka challenged him to a match, he was surprised. For years Sasaki thought Ohka saw him as some scary teacher that he didn’t want to remember. Now that they’ve spilled each other’s blood in a death match, it doesn’t matter if they are master and disciple. They should work hard together from now on. Sasaki told Ohka he has so many friends who support him so he should be grateful for them every day and do his best to repay them. And if Ganpro ever has any problems, Ohka is always welcome to ask Sasaki for help. Ohka said he definitely wanted to beat Sasaki today but his life will continue even though he lost. Ohka will turn 43 years old tomorrow and he will have another child later this year. That’s why he can’t stop Ganpro where it is now. He promises to make Ganpro bigger and one day defeat Takashi Sasaki! Ohka and Sasaki celebrated to “Bad Communication” to close out the show.

Kouki Iwasaki has stopped Ikuto Hidaka! It was a fight Iwasaki originally started so it was up to him to stop it in the rematch. The two almost fought to a double knockout but made it back to their feets for a final faceoff. Hidaka hit the Stray Dog High Kick but Iwasaki kept standing to give him a Back Drop. That momentum switch allowed Iwasaki to finally give Hidaka his first loss in Ganpro with the Vertical Drop Reverse DDT finishing him off. Iwasaki said he was feeling a bit silly because he took way more kicks to the head in the match than he wanted. He wanted to be nice to Hidaka though so he told him “Age is just a number!” He thanked Hidaka for becoming an important part in his pro wrestling life. Hidaka told Iwasaki he doesn’t trust anyone who acts like a good boy when they win. He won today so he should be proud of himself.

Ganpro got a win over DDT when Keisuke Ishii & Shota beat The 37KAMIINA pair of Shunma Katsumata & Yuki Ueno. Katsumata hid a firecracker and pulled it in Ishii’s mouth but it didn’t do much damage. Ishii blocked the ¡Hasta La Vista! and hit the Tiger Suplex then put him away with the Kneel Kick.

The first GWC 6-Man Tag Team Titles defence for the new champions was a successful one. Their challengers went full steam ahead with the pWo presentation. It all went wrong though when Yumehito Imanari was struck with a Double Super Kick from Asuka & Hagane Shinno. The duo then got rid of Shigehiro Irie with a Double Spin Kick before Yuna Manase wiped them out with a Double Lariat. But with the ring cleared, Shinichiro Tominaga took his chance and pinned Imanari with the Moonsault. Backstage Tominaga said relationships are built over time but he wants his trio to become a happy unit together so they can achieve more defences. Asuka & Shinno are looking forward to that. They were all born and raised differently but they will die together! Meanwhile Irie asked Imanari what would Shinjiro Otani say to them right now? According to Imanari, Otani would say “Even if people call you chubby, love your body and keep passing that energy on to others!” Manase said she wants to win a championship with Imanari & Irie so they promised her they will get another chance some day. “pWo for life!”

Ganbare☆Joshi had a good day at the office with a win over an Actwres girl’Z team. HARUKAZE wrestled in new black and white gear that looks a lot like Tifa’s outfit from Final Fantasy VII. She also got the submission win, making Ayumi Hayashi tap out while Moeka Haruhi kept Miyuki Takase at bay.

The show began with Minoru Fujita & Yasu Urano announcing they are hijacking Ganpro on behalf of the Fujita Pro Wrestling School! They proved their bad intentions by attacking THE HALFEE during their musical performance. On thing they didn’t anticipate was THE HALFEE using their numbers advantage because Moeka Haruhi briefly joined in to help her partners out. Shuichiro Katsumura tied up his opponents before tagging in Shu Sakurai to finish the job. It all went pear shaped when Fujita held onto Urano’s leg to stop him from being thrown around. Urano then stole the three count by using a European Side Headlock to roll Sakurai onto his shoulders to be pinned.
