Before the massive bear steps foot inside Sumo Hall, Andreza Giant Panda must go through a DDT veteran. Gorgeous Matsuno has appointed himself the gatekeeper of DDT and he isn’t going to let Andreza waltz into his territory to do whatever he wants. Andreza will have to go through Matsuno in order to reach Super Sasadango Machine. Speaking of Sasadango, he will be in attendance for the show. No doubt Sasadango will be scouting his giant opponent.

1. Mote Mote Army Vs Not Mote Army All Out Fight!: Makoto Oishi, Yuki Ueno & Mote Mote Super Large X Vs Kazusada Higuchi, Antonio Honda & Not Mote Super Large X

The return of The Bachelor Japan’s Rintaro Oyaizu has caused infighting among The Compliance. Oyaizu has been teaching Makoto Oishi & Yuki Ueno how to be popular with women. Kazusada Higuchi & Antonio Honda are mad that they are being left out. The two sides have been told to go find a partner and settle their problem with a 6-Man Tag Match. Here’s something I learned about Oyaizu and why he’s able to do these appearances for DDT. His day job is being a director for CyberAgent’s video game division! How’s that for company synergy?

Jun Kasai, Super Sasadango Machine and Yumehito Imanari will be on the show.

Wrestling Inside CyberAgent HQ, Tokyo Joshi Lottery, Ganbare Slam 2017

December 15, 2017

DDT “DDT VS CYBERAGENT STREET WRESTLING -MASOCHISTIC DEATH GAME-”, 21/12/2017
Tokyo CyberAgent Head Office

1. Sanshiro Takagi, Danshoku Dino, Super Sasadango Machine, Keiji Muto, Jun Kasai, X

Why is DDT holding a Street Wrestling match inside CyberAgent’s Headquarters? Because Danshoku Dino wants to put the CyberAgent president in a Lip Lock. Dino believes doing so will somehow transfer all of the CyberAgent stock to him without the need for a shareholders meeting. Dino will then increase the number of employee holidays and change the company name to GayBarAgent. Sanshiro Takagi & Jun Kasai are offering to put a stop to Dino’s scheme, otherwise DDT would risk getting expelled from CyberAgent. They successfully attacked Dino & Sasadango at the event announcement, hitting Dino’s backside with a barbed wire baseball bat and putting Sasadango through a table. One more thing, Takagi has invited someone else to show up at the match. Keiji Muto! Dino warned that he too will invite someone to even the odds.

So while no match has been officially announced yet it’s looking like it will be Takagi, Kasai and Muto versus Dino, Sasadango and a mystery wrestler.

TOKYO JOSHI PRO “SMILE YES SHINJUKU” Results

November 23, 2017

TOKYO JOSHI PRO “SMILE YES SHINJUKU”, 23/11/2017
Shinjuku FACE
432 Fans – Super No Vacancy

1. Maho Kurone defeated Yuki Kamifuku with the Ouroboros (6:07).
2. Maki Ito & Mizuki defeated Nodoka-oneesan & Marika Kobashi when Mizuki pinned Nodoka with a Diving Foot Stomp (12:15).
3. Hyper Misao Return Match: Rika Tatsumi defeated Hyper Misao with a Figure Four Leglock (10:29).
4. Saki-sama defeated Azusa Takigawa with the Two Step Face Kick (9:43).
5. TOKYO Princess Of Princess Title Next Challenger & Iron Man Heavymetalweight Title: Miyu Yamashita defeated Yuu (c) with the Crash Rabbit Heat (13:00).
*Miyu Yamashita becomes the 1,276th champion.
6. TOKYO Princess Tag Team Titles: Yuka Sakazaki & Shoko Nakajima (c) defeated Nonoko & Yuna Manase when Nakajima pinned Nonoko with a Diving Senton (17:02).
*V1 for Miraclians.

The combined size advantage of the Super Milk Combination was not enough to beat the Miraclians. They came close when they hit the W Oppai Ye on Shoko Nakajima but Yuka Sakazaki was there to make the save. From there the Apricots took over and wore down the challengers until Sakazaki got rid of Yuna Manase. Nakajima gave Nonoko a DDT and then won the match with a Diving Senton. The Apricots celebrated their first defence of the TOKYO Princess Tag Team Titles until the Ito Respect Army came down to the ring. Maki Ito said even though she already has a match planned for 4th January she still wants Mizuki to get a tag title match on the same show. Ito claims that there are many members in the Ito Respect Army and one of them will be Mizuki’s partner on 4th January.

Two prizes were on the line in the match between Yuu and Miyu Yamashita. The Iron Man Heavymetalweight Title and, more importantly, a spot in the main event TOKYO Princess Title match at Korakuen Hall on 4th January. Yuu bruised Yamashita’s chests with Chops and threw her around the ring. In return Yamashita kicked back with all that she had. The High Kicks took their toll and soon Yuu was defeated by the Crash Rabbit Heat. Yamashita wins the Iron Man Title and also goes on to face Reika Saiki for the Princess Title! It’s been a year and a half since she last held the Princess Title. She cannot wait to win it back. She also has to defend the Iron Man Title against Kazuki Hirata in DDT on 1st December. It will be the dance battle between Genghis Khan and TOKYO GO!

Saki-sama continues to pick on the weakest girls in Tokyo Joshi Pro. Today Azusa Takigawa tried to stand up to her but was beaten with the Two Step Face Kick. Saki said the match was truly inappropriate from beginning to end. But she was willing to show mercy because there is some beauty in Takigawa. She offered Takigawa to join her side. Takigawa refused because she is chasing her dream and Saki-sama’s obsession with beauty does not fit with that goal. Saki didn’t care what Takigawa said, her offer would not be refused. Suddenly Yukio Saint Laurent appeared and he approached Takigawa. She tried to fight him off but Laurent injected a syringe into her neck, knocking her out. He and Saki-sama left the ring with Takigawa being carried over his shoulder. Saki promised that Takigawa will become a fine lady under her supervision. She reckons we will see the new Takigawa at the next Shin-Kiba 1st RING show.

Hyper Misao had her first match in over 10 and a half months, returning from a long absence after getting reconstructive surgery on her right ACL. She reintroduced herself as the hero to protect love and peace in Tokyo Joshi. She asked Rika Tatsumi to team up with her but Tatsumi turned her down. Misao put up a fight when she was put in a Figure Four Leg Lock but eventually gave up when Tatsumi used the move a second time. Misao said afterwards that she will not give up looking for a tag team partner. But until she finds one she will also focus on becoming a stronger singles wrestler.

After the Ito Respect Corps won their match, Ito demanded a Princess Tag Title shot for 4th January. She was interrupted by Sanshiro Takagi. He has another idea that he thinks is more suitable for Ito. On 4th January Maki Ito will face Danshoku Dino one on one! Takagi thinks it is the perfect match to determine how far Ito has advanced since she became a pro wrestler. Ito accepts the match. She thinks she is so cute that fighting Dino will awaken his love for women. She will then use her cuteness to crush Dino! Mizuki expressed disappointment because she wanted to team with Ito at the show. Ito promised to talk it over with her later.

Yuki Kamifuku tried to get over her fears of wrestling a zombie but her inexperience was her downfall. Maho Kurone didn’t have much trouble wrestling her and even got a few bites in too.

The Up Up Girls (Pro Wrestling) unit introduced themselves to the audience at the start of the show. Hikari said she discovered wrestling when she was in junior high and wants to dedicate everything in her young life to take part in it. Hinano has nine years of training in judo and sambo. She wants to win a championship within one year of her debut. Raku will turn 20 years old on 5th December and is greeting her last days as a teenager with a smile. Miu is trying her best to be both an idol and a pro wrestler.

TOKYO JOSHI PRO “SMILE YES SHINJUKU”, 23/11/2017
Shinjuku FACE

1. Maho Kurone Vs Yuki Kamifuku
2. Maki Ito & Mizuki Vs Nodoka-oneesan & Marika Kobashi
3. Hyper Misao Return Match: Hyper Misao Vs Rika Tatsumi
4. Saki-sama Vs Azusa Takigawa
5. TOKYO Princess Tag Team Titles: Yuka Sakazaki & Syoko Nakajima (c) Vs Nonoko & Yuna Manase
6. TOKYO Princess Of Princess Title Next Challenger & Iron Man Heavymetalweight Title: Yuu (c) Vs Miyu Yamashita

The No. 1 Contendership for the TOKYO Princess Title will be between Miyu Yamashita and Yuu. If Yuu is still the Iron Man Heavymetalweight Champion then that belt will be on the line too. Their only previous singles match took place in September 2016 when Yuu beat Yamashita to win the Princess Title. Yamashita has promised to attack, attack, attack and attack to avenge her loss.

The Miraclians are not taking their first challengers lightly. Yuka Sakazaki lost to the Super Milk Combination in a non-title tag match last week. She sees them as a giant gate to climb over. Syoko Nakajima also knows that the challengers’ team name is not a gag, it’s a description of their strength. Nonoko & Yuna Manase want to use their big chests to overpower the champion team’s speed and technical abilities.

Hyper Misao is back in action after an ACL and meniscus surgery took her out of action for over 10 months. Her debut match took place in Shinjuku FACE so her return match in the same venue feels like a re-debut. Rika Tatsumi is her chosen opponent. They went to see the movie “IT” together recently and Tatsumi had to restrain herself from figuring out what Misao’s match strategy will be.

GANBARE☆WRESTLING “I LOVE YOU MUSCAT 2017”, 26/11/2017

4. Ganbare☆Wrestling Vs DAMNATION!: Shinichiro Tominaga Vs Daisuke Sasaki

No word yet on if the main event will be for the Indy World Jr. Title. I expect so if Sasaki beats Diego. Shinichiro Tominaga deserves it after his Amateurs Vs Professionals comparison at the last show.

It’s a Toryumon reunion of sorts for Ken Ohka’s 16th Anniversary.

*V2 for Reika Saiki.

Reika Saiki had an answer for all of Rika Tatsumi’s offence. Saiki’s win came when she countered the Hip Attack into a Back Drop. From there Saiki hit the Shining Wizard and the Jackhammer to earn her second successful defence of the TOKYO Princess Title. Saiki announced her next defence will be at Korakuen Hall on 4th January. Miyu Yamashita came out to challenge her but Yuu came out too to do the same. Yamashita and Yuu agreed to fight each other with the winner getting the title shot against Saiki at Korakuen.

The Super Milk Combination are off to a good start by beating one half of the TOKYO Princess Tag Team Champions. Part of their entrance includes a haka style dance. The W Oppai Ye is a tag team finisher where Nonoko & Yuna Manase sandwich the victim with two Body Attacks. Manase was impressed that she and Nonoko won a match without fighting each other. They are now confident they will win the tag titles on 23rd November.

After Saki-sama beat Mizuki she was challenged to a match by Azusa Takigawa. She earned her first win today but beating just anybody in Tokyo Joshi Pro isn’t enough. She must beat Saki-sama to prove herself! Saki admitted she doesn’t remember getting involved with Takigawa last month. That’s how little she means to her. If Saki-sama is a diamond, Takigawa is a stone on the roadside. If Saki-sama is the moon, Takigawa is a turtle. If Saki-sama is Vince McMahon running the WWE, Takigawa is Tetsuya Koda eating rice on his own with a key holder. She accepts the challenge and the match will take place on 23rd November.

Both Azusa Takigawa and Nodoka-oneesan were taking today’s match seriously. Neither wanted to be seen as the weakest wrestler in Tokyo Joshi. Nodoka even revealed she was wearing training gear under her usual costume. But Takigawa proved to be more determined and she pinned Nodoka with a Thrust Kick to win her first ever singles match.

Sanshiro Takagi appeared to announce the next set of debuts for Tokyo Joshi. Earlier this year DDT and the Up Up Girls idol group set up auditions for an Up Up Girls wrestling unit. Four girls passed the audition and will have their debut matches at Korakuen Hall on 4th January. The girls are Miu (18 years old, Saitama), Raku (19 years old, Tokyo), Hikari (19 years old, Hokkaido) and Hinano (19 years old, Tokyo).


TOKYO JOSHI PRO “GIRLS FIGHT OUT #6” Results

October 30, 2017

TOKYO JOSHI PRO “GIRLS FIGHT OUT #6”, 29/10/2017
Tokyo BASEMENT MON☆STAR
150 Fans – Super No Vacancy Full House

1. Maho Kurone defeated Marika Kobashi with the Ouroboros (5:56).
2. Maki Ito & Mizuki defeated Yuna Manase & Yuki Kamifuku when Mizuki pinned Kamifuku with a Double Stomp (8:27).
3. Saki-sama defeated Nodoka-oneesan with the Modified Foot Choke (7:15).
4. Nonoko defeated Shoko Nakajima with the Pai Fly Flow (10:24).
5. Rika Tatsumi, Yuka Sakazaki & Yuu defeated Reika Saiki, Miyu Yamashita & Azusa Takigawa when Tatsumi pinned Sakazaki with the Missile Hips (14:12).

Rika Tatsumi was feeling nervous about today’s main event but she now has plenty to be pleased about. She scored the pinfall to win the match for her team. She knows she is able to win matches but after today’s victory she is now in a new world of possibility. That includes a possible match with Reika Saiki for the TOKYO Princess Title. She had a face off with the champion at the end of the show so she definitely has Saiki’s attention.

Nonoko is getting her groove back. Now that her time in Konkatsu-gun is behind her, Nonoko is winning matches again. Today she scored a big victory over Shoko Nakajima. Now she thinks she is deserving of a championship match. Nakajima is willing to give her a TOKYO Princess Tag Team Title match but Nonoko needs to find a tag partner. Nonoko revealed that she already has one, it’s her former rival Yuna Manase! When those two were feuding they discovered they were similar after all and could make a good team together. They already have a team name, they are the Super Milk Combination and they get their title match on 23rd November!

Now that she is on her own, Saki-sama is stirring up trouble between other girls in the roster. After beating Nodoka-oneesan, Saki wondered out loud who is the weakest wrestler in Tokyo Joshi Pro, Nodoka or Azusa Takigawa. Saki wants the two of them to face off at the next show to find out the answer. Takigawa realises she loses a lot but she doesn’t like admitting it. Nodoka doesn’t want to lose at all especially against Takigawa. Saki is looking forward to seeing the low level match when it happens.

The Ito Respect Army called upon their “manager” Tetsuya Koda to solve their latest problem. Maki Ito has gone without proper entrance music for months now and is wondering how come Koda hasn’t done anything about it yet. Koda complained that he shouldn’t be part of the Ito Respect Army because he doesn’t respect anything! He only wears the Manager t-shirt because Ito forces him to. However he realises that Ito puts her trust in him and a good person does not betray that trust, so he will accept the Manager role. Koda was then surprised to learn that Ito will be releasing a new music CD on 4th January anyway.

American wrestler Veda Scott will be at the “TOKYO JOSHI PRO ’18” show in Korakuen Hall on 4th January. She is a former Iron Man Heavymetalweight Champion and has been given the nickname “Eyeglass Wrestler” by Tokyo Joshi. She will also be wrestling at the Osaka show on 7th January.
