2. 3 Way Match: Hyper Misao defeated Nodoka Tenma and Haruna Neko when Misao pinned Neko with the Hypami Returns (8:22).
3. Hikari Noa, Raku & Yuki Arai defeated Nao Kakuta, Marika Kobashi & Arisu Endo when Noa pinned Endo with the Blizzard Suplex (11:11).
4. Tokyo Princess Cup – Quarter Final: Maki Itoh defeated Suzume with the Itoh Punish (11:32).
5. Tokyo Princess Cup – Quarter Final: Miu Watanabe defeated Yuki Aino with the Tear Drop (12:15).
6. Tokyo Princess Cup – Quarter Final: Shoko Nakajima defeated Rika Tatsumi with the Tear Drop (13:21).
7. Tokyo Princess Cup – Quarter Final: Mizuki defeated Miyu Yamashita with the Cutie Special (14:31).

The Tokyo Princess Cup Three-peat is still on for Mizuki after she eliminates the biggest threat in the tournament. Miyu Yamashita is out in the Quarter Finals! A big moment came when Yamashita attempted to do an Avalanche Attitude Adjustment but Mizuki left her hanging upside down and hit a Diving Foot Stomp through her. Another big Diving Foot Stomp to the outside put Yamashita in danger but she used her kicks to get out of a defensive state. Mizuki prevented the Crash Rabbit Heat from happening by clinging onto Yamashita’s leg before she could run. Yamashita pulled off a normal Attitude Adjustment but Mizuki kicked out at two. She then dodged the Skull Kick, used a Jackknife Pin for a nearfall and immediately hit a Double Stomp out of it. Mizuki hit the Cutie Special but couldn’t pull off a bridge for the pin. She had to do one more Diving Foot Stomp before doing another Cutie Special to win the match.

Mizuki pulled Yamashita into the centre of the ring so she wouldn’t leave at the end of the show. Mizuki told the fans she defeated a monster today. She used to be jealous of Yamashita for having abilities that she does not have. But then Mizuki figured out that she has abilities that Yamashita doesn’t have too. Mizuki thanked Yamashita for the match and promised to win the Princess Cup for her. She also gave a shoutout to Yuka Sakazaki who has returned from her American excursion but is currently at home in quarantine. Together Mizuki and Yamashita ended the show by shouting “Happy Happy!” Backstage Yamashita said that Mizuki is also a monster in the ring just like her. She is frustrated to get eliminated from the tournament yet again but she will continue to enter the Princess Cup for as long as she is in Tokyo Joshi Pro. She is already looking forward to the 9th one.

There are two things you can count on in the Princess Cup. Yamashita eventually loses and Shoko Nakajima always does great. For the 6th time in 8 tournaments Nakajima reaches the Semi Finals! She defeated Rika Tatsumi by breaking out of the White Dragon Sleeper and hitting the Northern Lights Suplex. She then followed up with a Double Arm DDT and got the three count with the Diving Senton. Nakajima knew that Tatsumi was fighting for something so she counted on one opportunity opening itself up for her to win today. Tatsumi said Nakajima is too big of a kaiju for her to beat. She may look small but she is bigger than Mt. Fuji, the Tokyo Tower and the Sky Tree. She is the size of Mount Everest!

Only one fresh face made it to the Semi Finals this year and it is Miu Watanabe. She showed Yuki Aino just how powerful she is with a very Giant Swing. Later she powered out of the UBV and knocked her down with a big Shoulder Block. A Laserbeam punch was used to set up the Tear Drop and Watanabe punched her ticket to the final four. Watanabe said her matches with Aino are always important and pointed to their Princess Tag Team Titles match last November as an example. She promised to do her best with the Giant Swing as she approaches the final rounds.

Maki Itoh reaches the Semi Final for the second year in a row. She had to go through a scrap to get there though. Suzume ambushed Itoh with a Dropkick from behind during her entrance and they fought around ringside. Back in the ring, Suzume caught Itoh’s Diving Headbutt with the Ring A Bell. Suzume went for her finisher again later but Itoh blocked it and put her in the Itoh Punish for the submission win. Itoh pointed to the scratch under her left eye with one hand while sticking up her middle finger on the other to celebrate her win. You’d think Itoh would be furious at Suzume for damaging the cutest face in the world but that’s not the case. Instead Itoh thinks it is amazing because she doesn’t feel any pain from it at all! It shows she is getting better and she will continue to get better every day.

There was a disappointed response to this year’s Olympic Games opening ceremony. So Hyper Misao, Nodoka Tenma and Haruna Neko held their own as part of their 3 Way Match. Perfume wasn’t in this one either so the girls had to perform in their place.

At the start of the show it was announced that Yuki Arai will have her first main event match on 7th August. The show is happening in Nagoya, the home of SKE48. Arai will team with Yamashita against Yuki Aino & Moka Miyamoto. SKE48 member Shiori Aoki will be in attendance too.

Shin-Kiba 1st RING
142 Fans – Super No Vacancy Full House

1. Hikari Noa, Nodoka Tenma & Kaya Toribami defeated Yuki Kamifuku, Mirai Maiumi & Haruna Neko when Tenma pinned Neko with the Killswitch (11:07).
2. Mizuki, Yuki Aino, Nao Kakuta & Arisu Endo defeated Miyu Yamashita, Miu Watanabe, Pom Harajuku & Moka Miyamoto when Aino pinned Miyamoto with the Venus DDT (15:06).
3. Tokyo Princess Cup – Round 2: Suzume defeated Mahiro Kiryu with the Ring A Bell (7:53).
4. Tokyo Princess Cup – Round 2: Maki Itoh defeated Raku with the Itoh Punish (9:03).
5. Tokyo Princess Cup – Round 2: Shoko Nakajima defeated Marika Kobashi with the Northern Lights Suplex (5:41).
6. Tokyo Princess Cup – Round 2: Rika Tatsumi defeated Hyper Misao with a Rotating Leg Hold (15:03).

The four days of shows in a row are done and Round 2 is completed. The Tokyo Princess Cup is now down to the final eight. The very last match was an emotional one because it was Rika Tatsumi Vs Hyper Misao. This was their first singles match together since Misao’s phantom retirement match last November. This was so important that Misao dropped all her antics and wrestled a serious match. It was so serious that Misao’s mask got knocked off her face in the final moments but she continued to fight. Tatsumi countered a Gedo Clutch into a Rotating Log Hold to get the win and move on to the Quarter Finals. The two of them bumped fists after the match. Backstage Misao said the match is connected to the story that has been going on since November. She thought she would win today and make it the final episode.

Meeting Tatsumi in the quarters is Shoko Nakajima. Her first match in the tournament was a win against Marika Kobashi. From the get go, Kobashi went for the Front Neck Lock and she would use the move several times. But Nakajima was able to break out of the move and pin Kobashi with the Northern Light Suplex. Kobashi said the God Of Gals sent her encouragement with a day full of beautiful sunlight. She blamed the loss on not getting enough of a tan from that sunlight. It was a message from the God of Gals that she doesn’t have enough vibes as a wrestler or a Gal. Nakajima now moves on to face Tatsumi in the final eight.

Maki Itoh’s determination to meet Mizuki in the later rounds pushed her through to beat Raku. She wore earplugs during the match so she wouldn’t her Raku’s lullabyes. Raku still briefly sent her to sleep with a Sleeper Hold. That was when she noticed the ear plugs. Itoh used a High Angle DDT to counter the Doctor Yellow and narrowly avoided being pinned with the Hurricane Turn. When Itoh put Raku in a Crab Hold she dragged her to the middle of the ring and turned it into the Itoh Punish for the victory. She expected the match to go 60-40 her way but she thinks it ended up more 80-20. So that’s a good sign she is getting stronger.

Last but not least, Suzume breaks through to the Quarter Finals for the first time, pinning Mahiro Kiryu with the Ring A Bell. It is a results Suzume has been waiting for ever since Kiryu beat her in a singles match shortly after she debuted. She admitted she wasn’t even thinking about the tournament while they fought. Next up for her is Itoh.

6. Tokyo Princess Cup – Round 2A: Miyu Yamashita Vs Yuki Kamifuku

Two shows in, two shows to go for the opening round rush of the Tokyo Princess Cup. The big story seems to be Mizuki having a target on her back with both Miyu Yamashita and Maki Itoh wanting to be the ones to eliminate her. If Yamashita and Mizuki both win tomorrow then they face each other in the Quarter Final. That’s if Mirai Maiumi doesn’t deliver the Miramare Shock she is always promising first. Yuki Kamifuku recently got her motorbike license so her dream of winning the tournament and being gifted with a prize bike is as strong as ever. Haruna Neko won a non-tournament 3 Way match today but can she pull it off against Yuki Aino in the Cup tomorrow?

Tokyo Princess Cup 2021 Brackets

July 14, 2021

The Tokyo Princess Cup brackets are now complete. 22 of the 23 participants (Marika Kobashi was absent due to school work) picked their numbers out of a random lottery and were matched together before giving their comments for the upcoming tournament.


TOKYO JOSHI PRO “8TH TOKYO PRINCESS CUP”, 22/07/2021
Shin-Kiba 1st RING

1. Tokyo Princess Cup – Round 1A: Nao Kakuta Vs Miyu Yamashita
2. Tokyo Princess Cup – Round 1B: Pom Harajuku Vs Mirai Maiumi
3. Tokyo Princess Cup – Round 1C: Moka Miyamoto Vs Raku
4. Tokyo Princess Cup – Round 1D: Arisu Endo Vs Mahiro Kiryu

Miyu Yamashita welcomes the challenge that comes with Tokyo Joshi Pro growing larger. The Princess Cup has been her biggest Achilles Heel because she has never won it and often suffers her worst results there. Nao Kakuta suddenly finds herself fighting the Princess Of Princess Champion in Round 1. She understands she would lose this match 99% of the time so will aim to make this the 1% chance she will win. Pom Harajuku picked No. 4 and is treating it as her lucky number. This is her first match back since recovering from Covid. Mirai Maiumi has developed into the type of person she wanted to be but hasn’t been able to win anything yet. This summer she is determined to cause the Miramare Shock! Moka Miyamoto is looking forward to entering her first Princess Cup after not being included last year. Raku hasn’t won a singles match yet and sees Miyamoto is gaining momentum. She says she will do her best to beat her. Arisu Endo’s motivation is to face Suzume in the 2nd Round. Mahiro Kiryu stands in her way and won’t let her pass her by.

TOKYO JOSHI PRO “8TH TOKYO PRINCESS CUP”, 23/07/2021
Shin-Kiba 1st RING

1. Tokyo Princess Cup – Round 1E: Miu Watanabe Vs Kaya Toribami
2. Tokyo Princess Cup – Round 1F: Yuki Aino Vs Yuki Arai
3. Tokyo Princess Cup – Round 1G: Hikari Noa Vs Rika Tatsumi
4. Tokyo Princess Cup – Round 1H: Marika Kobashi Vs Nodoka Tenma

Last year Miu Watanabe finished in the final 8. This time she is aiming to improve on that and reach the semi finals. Kaya Toribami knows how strong she is in their previous tag matches together. Toribami doesn’t have much experience but she will give it her all to win. Yuki Aino is also going to use what she learned in the last year to make it past the quarter finals. Her opponent Yuki Arai is coming off her first win and is confirmed to be on all of the shows during the tournament, no matter how she fares in the Cup itself. Perhaps the biggest match in Round 1 is Hikari Noa Vs Rika Tatsumi. Hikari’s first singles match against a senior member of the roster was against Tatsumi back in 2018. This time she is fighting her as the International Princess Champion and the winner faces Hyper Misao in Round 2. Noa wants to advance and face Misao in a death match. Tatsumi appreciates seeing other wrestlers achieve their dreams but she doesn’t want it to happen at her expense. She has a first time singles match against Mizuki as her big dream to fight for. Nodoka Tenma has never lost to Kobashi in singles matches but she has only advanced past Round 1 once. That was the year Tenma reached the semi final though so she wants to walk down that road again.

1. Tokyo Princess Cup – Round 2A: Winner Of Match 1A Vs Yuki Kamifuku
2. Tokyo Princess Cup – Round 2B: Winner Of Match 1B Vs Mizuki
3. Tokyo Princess Cup – Round 2E: Winner Of Match 1F Vs Haruna Neko

The winner of Yamashita Vs Kakuta faces Yuki Kamifuku in Round 2. Kamifuku admittingly doesn’t like wrestling in singles tournaments but you have to do what you have to do. If she wins the Princess Cup then she wants the sponsors Ameba to buy her a really big motorcycle. Mizuki has dominated the tournament by winning it the last two years. She’s hesitant if she can make it 3 in a row but will do her best because everyone is wishing her good luck. Haruna Neko is waiting for whichever Yuki comes up to fight her

3. Tokyo Princess Cup – Round 2F: Winner Of Match 1G Vs Hyper Misao
4. Tokyo Princess Cup – Round 2G: Winner Of Match 1H Vs Shoko Nakajima

Maki Itoh still remembers losing to Mizuki in the semi final last year. Her goal is to win the tournament this year and surpass Mizuki. Suzume recently fought for the Princess Tag Team Titles but isn’t taking her chances here for granted. Hyper Misao is holding the same motivations she had way back in her first Princess Cup in 2015. She was chosen as a replacement back then because at the time everyone thought her superhero character had a short shelf life. She wants to win and prove she doesn’t have a shelf life at all! She heard about Noa’s request for a death match but she expects to face Tatsumi instead. Misao lost to Tatsumi in her fake retirement match last year so it’s time to get that win back. Shoko Nakajima is the only other person next to Yamashita that will be a part of every Princess Cup so far. She has the most tournament experience in the field and thinks it is all coming together for her.

119 Fans – No Vacancy

1. Moka Miyamoto Vs Arisu Endo ended in a Time Limit Draw (15:00).
2. Yuka Sakazaki defeated Suzume with the Magical Merry-Go-Round (9:07).
3. UWF Rules: Miyu Yamashita (1D/2E) defeated Mirai Maiumi (1D/1E) by Knockout with the Skull Kick (11:17).

D = Down
E = Escape/Rope Break

The first “TJPW INSPIRATION” was built around a hardcore match, the second time around was more UWF flavored. Miyu Yamashita and Mirai Maiumi had their go at the combat sport with Yamashita’s karate against Maiumi’s judo. Maiumi used the Lariat for a counter and eventually took the points lead over her opponent. However a rush of kicks from Yamashita turned things around and the Skull Kick resulted in a KO when Maiumi couldn’t answer the 10 count. Yamashita said the UWF Rules are so much fun and she was happy to try them out with Maiumi today.

Yuka Sakazaki defeated Suzume in her last match before trekking off to AEW for a month. Suzume treated this match as vital practice for the Tokyo Princess Cup so even though she lost, she still did her best to learn from it. She wants to have an evolutionary summer while Sakazaki is away in America. Sakazaki was hoping to finally win the Princess Cup this year but she thinks the timing to visit AEW again is fate. Her goal on this excursion is to wrestle on Dynamite and get back at Britt Baker for knocking out her tooth last year.

A chance for Moka Miyamoto and Arisu Endo to get their first singles win ended in a stalemate. After 15 minutes a winner couldn’t be determined. Endo hit the Tsuruga Castle for a nearfall while Miyamoto had Rashomon locked in until the bell rang. Endo is disappointed with the draw but still thinks she had a fun match. Miyamoto didn’t know she was capable to wrestle for 15 minutes. Now that she knows she can do it, she aims last that long win or lose from now on.

*V1 for Hikari Noa.
7. Princess Tag Team Titles: Sakisama & Mei Saint-Michel (c) defeated Miyu Yamashita & Maki Itoh by TKO when Sakisama used the Versailles Foot Choke on Yamashita (19:09).
*V2 for NEO Biishiki-gun.

Miyu Yamashita’s goal of becoming the first Double Princess Champion ends in failure. Even worse is now she may be the one who ends up helping Sakisama achieve it instead! It looked liked 121000000 had NEO Biishiki-gun figured out. Maki Itoh’s hard head took no damage from Mei Saint-Michel’s steel tray. She did some damage with it herself when she used it to amplify a Kokeshi Headbutt. Yamashita made it up to Sakisama’s level and she did the Attitude Adjustment but Saint-Michel broke the count, cut off Yamashita’s attack and hit the Tarte Tatin with her partner’s help. Sakisama took over and applied the Versailles Foot Choke, rendering Yamashita unconscious.

After the match, Saint-Michel said the rose of victory is beautiful today. She asked Sakisama if the result means she will take the Princess Of Princess Title home with her because the “pelican” Yamashita has been calling herself the strongest in the company and Sakisama just beat her. Itoh also asked Yamashita if she was going to do anything because the ace and champion of Tokyo Joshi Pro shouldn’t be the one losing. Sakisama told Itoh to shut up and said she isn’t interested in championships. However, Yamashita seems to care a lot about the Princess Title so taking it from her just to make her more upset is a very tempting idea. Yamashita accepted the challenge and the match is booked for 26th June at Ryogoku KFC Hall. Saint-Michel cheered on her master to win and Sakisama promised to dye the white belt into her colour of roses.

Hikari Noa survived a close call to mark her first International Princess Title defence. Marika Kobashi entered the match with a new outfit and a determination to win even if it meant taking the fight outside the ring. Her focus was on the Front Neck Lock and Standing Guillotine Leg Drop but Noa’s use of the Blizzard Suplex won out in the end. Backstage Noa called Kobashi and the Gal culture she loves strong. She isn’t going to visit Shibuya any time soon because of that. It’s scary stuff but beating the scary stuff means Noa has nothing to fear for what’s next. She still wants to do a proper death match for example and the championship doesn’t need to be involved if that is the hold up. Kobashi blamed the loss on the lack of Gals in the room supporting her with good vibes.

It is well known by now how much Rika Tatsumi likes Mizuki. According to Hyper Misao this was a problem she felt the need to fix. So she invented a piece of headgear for Tatsumi to wear called the Kimochi Ayatsu Rail Z. According to Tatsumi it converts her love for Mizuki into love for Misao. In reality it allowed Misao to make Tatsumi do whatever she wanted including attack Mizuki without hesitation. The Magical Sugar Rabbits got to remove the headgear and the match went on as normal and Yuka Sakazaki picked up the win. Misao held the remains of the headgear backstage and said the invention is 5 years of her life down the drain.

Yuki Arai had new entrance music for her first singles match. She got to hit Mirai Maiumi with the Finally Axe Kick but couldn’t pin her quick enough to win. She did get very close to win when she ducked a Lariat and used a Backslide Pin for a nearfall. Another attempt at the move was avoided and Maiumi smashed her with a Lariat. She then got the SKE48 star to submit to the Miramare. At least Arai got an MSS48 t-shirt out of it. Maiumi announced backstage that Arai and Yuki Kamifuku both passed their tests to join MSS48. Unfortunately Maiumi also announced that MSS48 was splitting up today.

Speaking of Kamifuku, she got the win for her team in Match #3. It was the first time she was teaming with Nao Kakuta in a regular tag match and also the first time they’ve been in the ring together since their IP Title bout back in April. Kamifuku recently learned to show respect to people like Kakuta for having longer wrestling careers than her. Miu Watanabe appreciated having a fresh team of opponents to fight. Mahiro Kiryu though was disappointed she couldn’t win today.

Also having her first singles match today was Kaya Toribami. The masked woman was put into a speedy battle against Shoko Nakajima. She hit her big move, a Twisting Senton off of the ropes the first time but found no target when she went to do it again. Nakajima caught her in a Butterfly Lock and transitioned over to the Unmanned Local Train Hold for the submission victory. Nakajima gave a little backstory in her post-match interview. She originally met Toribami two years ago where they trained together for something outside of wrestling. When Toribami showed interest in becoming a wrestler, Nakajima encouraged her to do it. Toribami said she felt nervous wrestling in Korakuen Hall but she was a little bit prepared because she already wrestled in Saitama Super Arena.

The opening match was a senpai team versus a kohai team with the veterans coming out on top. Raku got the pin on Arisu Endo with the Doctor Yellow. Nodoka Tenma was happy to see a good turnout for TJPW’s first Korakuen show held on a weeknight. She is also determined not to lose against the younger wrestlers. Yuki Aino tried cheering her sister up by reminding her she only turned “22” earlier this month. Suzume referred to her team as the 1998 class (Moka Miyamoto was born in 1999 but it’s close enough). Yuki Arai is also of similar age to the group so Suzume hopes the five of them can team together some day. Haruna Neko swore to get revenge on Pom Harajuku for targeting her paw during the match.
