4a. Miyu Yamashita eliminated Himawari Unagi with the Cobra Clutch (6:20).

4c. Rika Tatsumi eliminated Mizuki with a Backwards Cradle (10:51).
4d. Mahiro Kiryu defeated Pom Harajuku with the Oklahoma Roll (13:50).

The main event was a Mystery Captain’s Fall tag match with 2 count pins needed to win. The two captains were privately chosen backstage and would not be revealed until they were eliminated from the match. That led to the wrestlers trying to figure out who the opposing captain was while they fought each other. Rika Tatsumi suffered an embarrassing moment when she approached Mizuki to shake hands but was ignored. Miyu Yamashita submitted Himawari Unagi but she was not the captain so the match continued. When Yamashita went on offence against Mizuki, Tatsumi pleaded with her to stop. That distraction allowed Mizuki to pin Yamashita with a Casadora. Tatsumi tried to wrestle Mizuki but couldn’t bring herself to do it. She was even overcome with joy when Mizuki put her in a Sleeper Hold. Pom Harajuku pushed the sleeping Tatsumi on top of Mizuki for an unexpected 2 count elimination. An upset Mizuki said she hates Tatsumi after that. Mahiro Kiryu was the last one left on her team which meant she was the captain. Tatsumi missed the Missile Hips and struck Harajuku by mistake. Kiryu capitalized and pinned Harajuku with the Oklahoma Rool. It was revealed that Harajuku was the other captain so Kiryu’s team wins! Mizuki reconciled with Tatsumi after the match.

Yuka Sakazaki and Hikari Noa were challenged to a series of games. First was a bug catching contest. They were told that 5 cicadas, 10 stag beetles, 15 rhinoceros beetles and 20 butterflies were hidden around the venue. Noa found four cicada shells and a dung beetle which earned her 7 points. Sakazaki caught two proper cicadas which was enough to win with 10 points.

The 2nd game was a drawing contest. The rules here was both girls had to wrestle a brief match and their allotted drawing time depended on how many seconds they pinned their opponent for. Noa pinned Sakazaki for four seconds so she was given 40 seconds to draw her picture. Sakazaki pinned Noa for 7 seconds so she got 70 seconds drawing time. The subject they had to draw was Sanshiro Takagi. Despite having a shorter time limit, Noa’s drawing won the fan vote and she received 30 points.

The final and deciding game was a Human Watermelon Split Match. Sayuri Nanba wore a paper balloon over their head and sat down in the ring. Sakazaki and Noa were blindfolded and their goal was to hit the balloon with their bat. Whoever hit it first got 10,000 points. However Nanba had Tetsuya Koda and the new trainee Shiori sitting down beside her to act as a misdirection. Both Sakazaki and Noa were tricked by the audience into hitting Koda over and over until the time ran out. The game was a draw but since Noa had the most overall points from the three games she was declared the winner. When the blindfolds were taken off Sakazaki couldn’t resist hitting the balloon over Nanba’s head.

For the third time The Bakuretsu Sisters overate before a fan club show and became too ill to wrestle. They were replaced by the Mexcian lucadoras Mil Nodocaras & Yuki Caras who were in the country for some sightseeing. They were in for a fight because “Iron Man” played and the Up Up Warriors rushed down to the ring! The Nodocaras Sisters used their Japanese souvenirs to successfully fight off Warrior Miu & Warrior Raku.

YUMI had the size advantage to throw Shoko Nakajima around the ring but the gap in experience prevented her from winning. Nakajima countered the Full Nelson Buster into a European Clutch for the victory.

Izumi was given a short exhibition bout with Mirai Maiumi just to give her some ring time. She will reveal her official ring name and wrestling costume at an event in Akihabara tomorrow.

Shinjuku FACE
600 Fans – Super No Vacancy Full House

0. Special Under Match “Star Of Shining Friendship! Eternal Wrestling Boys Legend”: Tetsuya Koda defeated Hisaya Imabayashi with a Modified Torso Sleeper Hold (12:43).
0. Exhibition Match: Danshoku Dieno defeated Keigo Nakamura when Nakamura gave up (3:46).
1. “Summer Feature” Laripro: Yuna Manase, Makoto Oishi & Antonio Honda defeated Keisuke Ishii, Tomomitsu Matsunaga & Yukio Naya by Disqualification when Ishii attacked the referee (14:12).
2. DJ Nira defeated Kazusada Higuchi by Disqualification when Higuchi attacked the referee (5:57).
3. Hana No Sandman Match: Ken Ohka defeated Danshoku Dieno, DJ Nira, Masahiro Takanashi, Muscle Sakai, Antonio Honda, Mike Bailey and Makoto Oishi when Ohka pinned Dieno with the Fire Spear (13:52).

Today’s Beer Garden show was put together by Danshoku Dieno and Super Sasadango Machine. It was headlined by the annual tribute to The Sandman. Several wrestlers came out carrying beer and Singapore canes then met in the ring to share a toast. The bell rang and “Enter Sandman” played while everybody brawled all over the venue. Wrestlers who weren’t part of the match got caught in the mayhem and did what they could to survive while the ring filled up with empty beer cans. Dieno & Sasadango took on all comers but were eventually overwhelmed. DJ Nira hit them with the Rocket Punch, Masahiro Takanashi struck them with a Thrust Kick and Ken Ohka pinned Dieno with the Fire Spear.

With the match over and the music finished, Ohka said he thought he could never survive because he did not have the status or power to go through with it. But today he is in the ring with his most important friends! Even when you are old you can enjoy the time spent with friends. Dieno gathered everyone together and called them his important friends. Sasadango then promoted next year’s show because he believes now is the earliest they can begin to sell tickets for it.

Kazusada Higuchi Vs DJ Nira was an unadvertised match. Higuchi tried to end it quickly but Nira tricked him into having a sumo contest with Daisuke Kiso. Higuchi won easily. Nira then attacked Higuchi from behind. He fled to the corner where Higuchi went for a Splash attack. Kiso took the blow instead of Nira. Kiso was then lifted by Nira into an Argentine Backbreaker position to prevent him from falling and Higuchi was disqualified. The lights went out and everyone heard the words “How strong are you, this is my dream.”

Sasadango’s PowerPoint presentation was a dark project called “Recommended Ghost Spots In Kanagawa”. Sasadango put together a photo diary of supernatural spots that were recommended by paranormal researcher Toshitaro Yamaguchi. Sasadango wanted to visit these spots during the day but it got dark by the time he met up with Konosuke Takeshita and Hisaya Imabayashi to embark on the trip. Some of the spots were blocked off, others turned out to just be empty spaces. While this was going on Takeshita’s right elbow was hurting but he carried on. Sasadango’s conclusion of this story is Takeshita’s an inspiration.

The Lariat Pro Wrestling match begun with the stipulation’s national anthem, “Power Hall”. Everybody played Riki Choshu until the music switched to “Sunrise”. Antonio Honda started acting like Stan Hansen until Yukio Naya put him in a Wristlock, stopping the music. Keisuke Ishii told Naya he was supposed to do Lariats but Naya didn’t understand. Ishii explained how great Lariat Pro matches are but Naya said he didn’t want to do that kind of match. Ishii told Naya to leave and have a drink while the rest continued the match. “J” and the wrestlers acted like Jumbo Tsuruta. Things went a different direction when Makoto Oishi hurt his knee. The music changed to “HOLD OUT” and the Keiji Muto impersonations began. Then it turned into Bruiser Brody spots for “Immigrant Song”. Then Giant Baba for “Soul Of A Champion”. Ishii brought out the Shinya Hashimoto Middle Kicks when “Bakusho Sengen” played. Then came the Mitsuharu Misawa spots for “Spartan X”. Things went out of control when “One Of These Days” played and Honda transformed into Abdullah The Butcher! He took out the referee but a hero was on his way when suddenly “Ikari No Jushin” played. Out came Naya with a beer wearing a Jushin Liger mask! Yuna Manase took the mask off of Naya, wore it herself and hit everyone with Shotei palm strikes. The Lariats returned for “GRAND SWORD” but things went haywire against when Ishii attempted to give Daisuke Kiso a Kenta Kobashi style Burning Hammer! Kiso disqualified Ishii before he could hit the move. Ishii complained that he didn’t break any rules but Tomomitsu Matsunaga and the venue staff disagreed. The staff entered the ring and hit Ishii with Lariats. They then told everyone that the Beer Garden week is happening during Shinjuku FACE’s 14th anniversary. They raised a toast and everyone cheered “FACE”.

Yuki Ueno wanted to begin the show with an exhibition for the trainee Keigo Nakamura. He has been a trainee for over a year and four months but has yet to be in the ring with a certain DDT wrestler. That wrestler is Danshoku Dieno! The exhibition began and Nakamura tried to fight off Dieno. But he couldn’t. He gave up while Dieno was all over him then began to cry. Ueno comforted Nakamura and explained he wanted to see how he would react to Dieno. He asked if Nakamura wants to get stronger? Nakamura does. Ueno said he saw something good in Nakamura today and he encouraged the fans to cheer for him.

Before the show even began the audience were treated to the rematch one year in the making! Last year the two authority figures Hisaya Imabayashi and Tetsuya Koda faced off in the ring. Koda won that battle and left Imabayashi humiliated to the point where he lost the respect of his children. Today his children was here to see their father get revenge! Unfortunately Imabayashi couldn’t hit the Rainmaker, Koda hit him with the Kamigoye and made him submit to a Sleeper Hold. Koda spoke to Imabayashi’s kids and told them what they saw was reality. He wasn’t insulting them however. What he meant was the kids got to see just how strong their father really is! The kids embraced Imabayashi. He may have lost but he did his best to the very end and that won him back his family’s respect.

4. Sakisama & Misao defeated Miu Watanabe Vs Raku when Sakisama submitted Raku with the Versailles Foot Choke (11:08).
5. Maki Itoh & Mizuki defeated Shoko Nakajima & Yuki Aino when Mizuki submitted Aino with a Face Lock (10:31).
6. International Princess Title Japanese Representative Decision 4 Way Match: Natsumi Maki defeated Rika Tatsumi, Yuna Manase and Yuki Kamifuku (13:36).
6a. Natsumi Maki eliminated Yuna Manase with a Cradle (6:40).
6b. Yuki Kamifuku eliminated Rika Tatsumi with a Crucifix Pin (11:49).
6c. Natsumi Maki eliminated Yuki Kamifuku with the Backlash (13:36).

The opportunity to compete for a brand new championship means a lot to Natsumi Maki. So much so that in today’s main event she wore the wrestling gear Kairi Sane gave to her before she went to WWE! The 4 Way Match was held under elimination rules. Yuna Manase was the first to go. She attempted the Suzuki Dynamic but Maki countered it into a Rolling Cradle and Rika Tatsumi assisted with giving Manase a Facecrusher on the way down. Tatsumi was next when Yuki Kamifuku countered the Dragon Twist Of Fate into a Crucifix Pin for the upset. Maki was able to win the match entirely when she pinned Kamifuku with the Backlash. Maki said she’s only been in Tokyo Joshi Pro for half a year but there is a new wind approaching in the form of the International Princess Title. She will be a part of the new wind!

The Itoh Respect Army won today but Maki Itoh dropped a bombshell after the match. They’re splitting up! Itoh announced this to everyone but didn’t tell Mizuki about it until then so she was as surprised as everyone else. Itoh explained that they haven’t been a regular team lately so the unit should no longer exist. Also Mizuki is currently on the road to success from winning the Tokyo Princess Cup while Itoh got eliminated in the 2nd Round so that means they should be rivals. Itoh challenged Mizuki to a match at Korakuen Hall on 25th August. The two shook hands until Itoh gave Mizuki both middle fingers.

Miu Watanabe is getting stronger but she isn’t getting the wins to back her up. How strong? Strong enough to Body Slam Sakisama & Misao at the same time! However Misao put Watanabe in the Ribera Me while Sakisama submitted Raku with the Versailles Foot Choke. Watanabe called out to NEO Biishiki-gun after the match telling them that their actions are not beautiful. Misao called her a weed but Watanabe said no matter what happens to weeds they stand up again and again. She challenged them to a Princess Tag Team Titles match to prove it. Miyu Yamashita came out and told Watanabe she will be her partner. Sakisama said it is her right to choose her challengers and it is not them. They were about to leave when Yamashita asked if Sakisama was scared? Sakisama denied being scared and accepted the challenge.

The opening show announcements were interrupted when Shota came down and handed Sayuri Namba a rose with a message attached to it. The message was a receipt for NEO Biishiki-gun’s new photobook coming out this summer. Azusa Takigawa entered the ring and told Namba she has no memory of working on a photobook even though Azusa Christie appears on the cover. Tetsuya Koda ordered Takigawa to sell the photobooks anyway.

“The Gatekeeper From Hell” Demonio Uno, an old gimmick from IWA Japan, will be on the 4th August show held at a Tsurumi market. That is a very obscure gimmick to bring back.

7. KO-D 6-Man Tag Team Titles: Konosuke Takeshita, Akito & Yuki Iino (c) defeated HARASHIMA, Yuki Ueno & Naomi Yoshimura when Takeshita pinned Ueno with a Crushed Casadora (23:47).
*V2 for ALL OUT.

The show began with ALL OUT giving the opening speech until DISASTER BOX interrupted them. Yuki Ueno said that he and Naomi Yoshimura went to a time limit draw with Konosuke Takeshita & Akito in Shinjuku last week. HARASHIMA is also the DDT Extreme Champion. That means the three of them deserve a KO-D 6-Man Tag Team Titles match today. Akito asked what would happen to ALL OUT’s match with the Sendai Girls if they lose. Ueno told him he doesn’t care. Akito refused the challenge but Takeshita reminded him of his goal to defend his championships outside of Tokyo more often. Hisaya Imabayashi told the teams that title matches need to be endorsed by the GM Tetsuya Koda but he is currently travelling on one of the company coaches with the Tokyo Joshi Pro roster. Suddenly Koda appeared and he told everyone he changed his travel plans and will take a late night bus home. He also agreed to changing the main event into a title match.

It was a close match but ALL OUT squeaked by with the win when Takeshita blocked Ueno’s Casadora and pressed him down with the pin. After the match, Yuki Iino told Takeshita he isn’t going to cash in his Right To Challenge Gauntlet today. He then performed a Haka victory dance for the fans.

It’s all going downhill for Daisuke Sasaki. He lost his match again today this time to Mike Bailey. Sasaki was on the top rope while Mad Paulie distracted Bailey. But Bailey stopped Sasaki and hit the Flamingo Driver to win. All Sasaki can think about nowadays is losing. Even when he sleeps he is losing in his dreams. He thinks he is old as a grandpa too. Soma Takao tried to get him to focus on their KO-D Tag Team Titles match but nothing seems to get him out of his current state.

Antonio Honda Vs Maku Donaruto went the way of your typical Danshoku Dieno match. Honda accidentally blinded Daisuke Kiso with the Gongitsune poke. Donaruto hit the McFly Swanton Bomb but Kiso couldn’t count because of his eyesight. Donaruto grabbed Kiso and decided that dry humping him would somehow solve the problem. Honda grabbed Donaruto and tried to stop him but it only made the situation worse. The match had to be called off because of this.

Bull James is happy to wrestle in Japan for the first time and wants to be in a bunch of matches with a variety of styles. For his DDT debut things started off a little rusty when James needed to sit down on a chair after being tricked to run the ropes over and over. Tomomitsu Matsunaga tried to take advantage but James was able to Hip Toss him as he stood up off the chair. Matsunaga used his strength to Body Slam and Lariat the American but James fired up, hit a Corner Splash and then the Doink Drop to win.

The first Right To Challenge Gauntlet transfer took place in the opener. Kazuki Hirata used Yuni to give Makoto Oishi a Hurricanrana then he piled on top of them to get the pin.

Yukinori Matsui made some announcements for his 25th Anniversary show on 26th May. Kikutaro Vs Kuishinbo Kamen will take place with Matsui as the referee. He said this is the first time in five years that match will happen with him involved. Shigehiro Irie will also be wrestling on the show.

7. DISASTER BOX Vs #STRONGHEARTS: CIMA & El Lindaman defeated HARASHIMA (#4) & Kazuki Hirata (#18) when CIMA pinned Hirata with an Egoist Driver (14:17).
8. KO-D Openweight Title & 1,000,000 Yen Prize Money ~ DDT Special Four Great Singles Match: Daisuke Sasaki (#5) (c) defeated Masahiro Takanashi (#1) with the Sasaki Hurricanrana (21:56).
*V1 for Daisuke Sasaki.

Guess who is a million yen richer? Daisuke Sasaki, that’s who! His win over Masahiro Takanashi not only marks his first successful defence of the KO-D Openweight Title but he also wins the cash prize Takanashi originally earned from the Dramatic General Election. Sasaki used the Flash Hurricanrana early for a nearfall but his second attempt twenty minutes later sealed the deal. Inbetween that time, Takanashi used everything from the Takatonic to the Laphroaig to even KUDO’s Diving Double Knee Drop to win. Although Sasaki was the one who had his hand raised, he showed a rare moment of compassion for his opponent by calling him back to the ring. Sasaki asked if the scene around him was what he wanted to see, a packed Korakuen Hall cheering for him. Sasaki said today was an important story and together he and Takanashi can bring in a new era for DDT. He offered out his hand but Takanashi turned around and left the ring.

With that out of the way, Sasaki turned to his future plans. His next scheduled title defence is at Sumo Hall on 17th February against the winner of the D-Ou Grand Prix but he thinks that is a bit too far to wait. He’d rather have a title defence sooner and he also wants nominate his own challenger. The DDT GMs Tetsuya Koda and Hisaya Imabayashi consulted with each other and decided a title match can happen on 3rd January for the first episode of “DDT LIVE! MAJI MANJI SUPER”. Sasaki said he will pay attention to the entire Grand Prix and choose his opponent from his research. Suddenly Tetsuya Endo pushed Sasaki and told him he’s going to win the Grand Prix. Well, either him or Soma Takao. Takao told Endo to calm down and then asked Sasaki if he can have the prize money because Sasaki used the Gin And Tonic in the main event without his permission. Think of it as a rights fee. Sasaki said no. It was his birthday this week so he’s off to spend the money at a bar to celebrate.

El Lindaman was worried that Kazuki Hirata’s entrance would bring back some horrible memories for CIMA so he made CIMA wear an eye mask and headphones until Hirata finished his dance. Hirata instead Dropkicked CIMA while his guard was down. He would then taunt CIMA by giving Lindaman a Gyrating Frankensteiner. To everyone’s surprise, CIMA did his own Gyrating Frankensteiner to Hirata in response. Lindaman dove out of the ring onto HARASHIMA while CIMA tried to take care of Hirata. There was a moment where Hirata caught CIMA in the Miracle One Shot Cradle but CIMA kicked out of it. CIMA got the win when he pinned Hirata with the Egoist Driver. Turns out CIMA has gotten over that piece of his past. After the match CIMA talked about STRONG HEARTS recently getting a new member from WRESTLE-1. Maybe they should get a member from DDT and it should be Hirata! CIMA offered Hirata a handshake but Hirata turned him down. Hirata looked a bit hesitant over his decision as he walked back to the locker room.

Nobody wanted Danshoku Dieno to get his memory back more than Akito. Today was meant to be a dream match for the lad but Dieno just wasn’t himself. Instead of kissing fans in the audience, he just shook their hands. Every time Akito blatantly put himself in position for one of Dieno’s trademark moves Dieno would do something else instead. Makoto Oishi & Super Sasadango Machine got involved desperately trying to cure their friend’s amnesia. Nothing worked and it drove Oishi mad to the point that he grabbed a chair. Oishi swung the chair at Dieno but he ducked and Akito got hit instead. Dieno grabbed the chair and swung at Oishi but missed. The chair bounced off the ropes and smashed back into Dieno’s face! Suddenly Dieno began to stir and the lights went off. When they came back on Dieno was naked with his lose tights covering his junk! He gave Akito the Lip Lock and a naked Danshoku Driver while everyone else at ringside tried to block it from the audience’s view. The match ended in a no contest while Dieno rampaged through the crowd to the back.

The match between Konosuke Takeshita and Maki Ito became more interesting when Takeshita won the Iron Man Heavymetalweight Title at the beginning of the show. So now Ito had a chance to win back the title. Ito gave Takeshita the middle finger but struggled to do much against her opponent. However that only charged Ito up. Takeshita begun to get worried when Ito started banging her head off the turnbuckles so he removed one of them. That backfired when Ito was able to throw Takeshita head first into the exposed turnbuckle. Takeshita grabbed the title belt from ringside to use it as a weapon but Ito stopped him with a DDT. Ito was later pushed into the steel but she landed onto Takeshita’s crotch for an unintentional low blow. Ito tried to give Takeshita another middle finger but he grabbed her hand and smashed her in the face with an elbow strike. Takeshita stomped on Ito’s hands and then hit the Zahi Knee Strike. Yukinori Matsui started counting Ito out but she slowly started to get up. At nine she gave Takeshita one last middle finger and collapsed, losing the match by knockout.

As Ito was being helped to the back, Takeshita scolded her for giving him the middle finger so many times. He thought they could be rivals but unfortunately admits it is too much of a mismatch. However he wants Ito to continue on the path she has chosen. That is the pro wrestling way. You can go as far as you like when you do things your way as long as you try your hardest. Ito gave him the middle finger and walked off. Michiaki Nakano from Souken Holdings entered the ring and handed the Iron Man Title to Takeshita. Nobuhiro Shimatani and Gota Ihashi both tried to ambush Takeshita with School Boys but Takeshita kicked out of both of them. Nakano then tried to do one but couldn’t even get Takeshita off his feet. Takeshita, Shimatani and Ihashi all stomped on Nakano until he was pulled out of the ring.

MAO has had a crazy 2018 and considered today’s match with Jun Kasai as his final boss battle. He wasn’t able to win but he thinks having a Hardcore Match with Kasai will open new doors for him. They slammed each other through plastic boxes and skewered each other’s heads with bamboo skewers. MAO kicked out of the Pearl Harbor Splash but was put away with the Vertical Drop Reverse Tiger Driver.

STRONG HEARTS were also victorious earlier in the show when Dezmond Xavier, Zachary Wentz & Trey Miguel beat the mixed DDT team of KUDO, Shunma Katsumata & Kazusada Higuchi. The home side were unprepared for the fast paced moves presented by The Rascalz which included a triple dive to the outside. When Higuchi tagged into the match his team were able to take control but eventually Katsumata was singled out. Wentz got the pin with the Hot Fire Flame, a move where he does Standing Moonsault next to his opponent and Xavier pushes him over to the target in mid-air!

The DAMNATION duo of Endo & Takao were able to beat Ganbare☆Wrestling’s pair of Keisuke Ishii & Yumehito Imanari without much trouble. Endo gave Imanari the Swivel Torture Rack and Takao got the three count with the Perfect Driver. Was that done intentionally because CIMA was on the show?

When Toru Owashi put Saki Akai in a Mexican Stretch it had the unintended effect of making Antonio Honda too hyper actively aroused to wrestle. This happened again when Honda was ready to do a Shining Wizard to Akai only to stall when Akai moved herself into a seductive pose. Owashi used the distraction to pin Honda with La Magistral Cradle.

In the pre-show match Makoto Oishi was able to counter Mizuki Watase’s Back Drop into a Cradle to nab the three count.

Takeshita was able to win the Iron Man Title from Tetsuya Koda at the beginning of the show when the two were in the ring for the opening announcements. Takeshita was there to promote the New Year’s Eve wrestling show. He said that he’s been in the final of the annual tournament for the last three years so he has to make it four in a row. When it was Koda’s turn to talk, Takeshita gave him a Low Blow and pinned him to win the title. After he left the ring, Michiaki Nakano climbed in and jumped on top of Koda. Hisaya Imabayashi had to tell him Koda was no longer the champion so nobody was going to count his pin

Chigusa Nagayo’s match at the 17th Febuary Sumo Hall show will be a 6-Person Tag Match. She will be teaming up with Sanshiro Takagi & Ryuji Ito against a trio to be announced later. Nagayo, Takagi & Ito have teamed together once before way back in March 2005 as part of an event produced by Nagayo in Differ Ariake.

Maki Ito had been losing confidence since her humiliating submission defeat to Miyu Yamashita last week so she was happy to win today. In fact Ito thanked Yamashita for dropping her back down to the bottom so she can climb up and become stronger. Ito pointed at Yuki Aino and told her she is the same after failing to win the TOKYO Princess Tag Team Titles. That makes Ito and Aino bottom buddies. They will both crawl from the bottom to get to the top. Ito asked the crowd who is the 2nd cutest in the world. It’s Aino! And who is the 1st cutest? It’s Ito!

Shoko Nakajima Vs Yuu ended in a draw but neither will forget the match anytime soon. Nakajima especially because her chest was left raw by Yuu’s chops. Yuu is grateful that she got to wrestle Nakajima one on one before she goes freelance. Yuu is inspired because Nakajima will always fight no matter if she wins or loses. Nakajima regrets not winning the match because she has never beaten Yuu. She hopes they will fight again some day.

Rika Tatsumi came out after intermission to sing her entrance song. Sayuri Nanba knocked her out mid-performance and pinned her to win the Iron Man Heavymetalweight Title. Later when the show had just finished, the GM Tetsuya Koda ambushed Nanba and made her submit to a Sleeper Hold to become the new champion. He ran away with the belt while everyone booed him.

When Haruna Neko debuted she made fun of Nakajima’s height by reaching too high for a test of strength. Today Yuna Manase did the same to Haruna.

The debuting Pom Harajuku acted very playful with Yuka Sakazaki. She said the match felt like it came and went in an instant. She couldn’t do 100% of what she wanted to do but she had fun out there.

A new trainee introduced herself to the audience before the show began. Unagi had never seen pro wrestling before discovering Tokyo Joshi Pro. She debuts on 4th January and is part of the same class as Haruna, Harajuku, Yumi and one other girl who has yet to introduce herself. Unagi said she cannot wait until all five have made their debut.
