Spring/Summer Eleven: Mizuki, Miyu Yamashita, Moka Miyamoto, Nao Kakuta, Pom Harajuku, Arisu Endo, Marika Kobashi, Nodoka Tenma, Mahiro Kiryu, Shoko Nakajima & Maki Itoh

Autumn/Winter Eleven: Rika Tatsumi, Miu Watanabe, Yuki Aino, Suzume, Mirai Maiumi, Raku, Haruna Neko, Yuka Sakazaki, Hyper Misao, Hikari Noa & Yuki Kamifuku

Those born in the months of March to August went into war against the ones born between September and February. This was taken seriously with the Spring/Summer Eleven bragging about plants and hot weather while the Autumn/Winter Eleven wore costumes celebrating Hallowe’en and Christmas. Sayuri Namba played both sides, claiming to support the summer because her ring announcing career began in May then cheering for winter because she was born in October. The show was briefly delayed due to internet trouble so Shota & Tetsuya Koda kept themselves busy at the commentary table.

Spring/Summer captain Shoko Nakajima won the first match on the show, beating Miu Watanabe. Even with 2 Count Pins in effect, her victory was certain once she did the Northern Lights Suplex.

It’s been so long. Was this Haruna Neko’s first singles win in over two years? A Jumping Cat Breaker to Moka Miyamoto set her up for the Nekocanrana to get the pin and tie the score one a piece.

Marika Kobashi hasn’t lost a match since she turned 20 years old this month. She continued the winning streak by catching Suzume in the Front Neck Lock and making her tap out. Kobashi said she is keeping this momentum for her upcoming International Princess Title shot.

Hyper Misao was confident she would win her match against Arisu Endo because of the 2 Count Rules. She almost lost when Endo grabbed her cloak to choke her over the ropes and drag her into the ring for a Knee Drop. With time running out, Endo attempted a Camel Clutch but Misao slipped out and pinner her with a Gedo Clutch.

Every match on the show had a 7 minute time limit. Nao Kakuta Vs Mirai Maiumi was the first bout to run out of time and end in a draw so it restarted under 1 Count Sudden Death Rules. Kakuta went in for the kill but Maiumi cut her down with a Short Range Lariat to get the win. The result of this match put the Autumn/Winter team in the lead for the first time.

The next match ended in a Time Limit Draw too but for completely unexpected reasons. Mizuki and Yuki Kamifuku fought their way over to the venue bar where vials of liquor were left on the counter. Kamifuku tried to force Mizuki to drink the alcohol but Mizuki turned the tables and made Kamifuku drink it. The two went back into the ring where Mizuki tricked Kamifuku to drink more as a toast but she was still able to kick out of pins until the time ran out. Mizuki offered her opponent another drink at the restart immediately pinned her with an Inside Cradle.

At the halfway point the score was tied 3-3. Yuka Sakazaki put the Autumn/Winter team ahead by taking out Mahiro Kiryu. They went back and forth with Kiryu hitting the Spinebuster. But in the end Sakazaki hit back with Elbow Strikes and won with the Magical Merry-Go-Round.

The big upset of the show happened when Pom Harajuku defeated the Autumn/Winter team captain Rika Tatsumi! At first the time expired right when Tatsumi was about to hit the Twist Of Fate. Then in the restart, Harajuku dodged a Hip Attack and Tatsumi hit Daisuke Kiso by mistake. Tatsumi got the better of Harajuku afterwards but there was nobody around to count the pin. Tatsumi revived the ref but Harajuku rolled her into the Cradle to get the 1 Count pin. Tatsumi took her frustration out on Misao at ringside while Harajuku celebrated.

Hikari Noa threatened to roll Nodoka Tenma around the ring because she is so round. She focused on using different pin holds to keep Tenma down. The plan ultimately worked once Noa applied the Last Supper and Tenma couldn’t kick out.

Raku had the toughest opponent out of everyone. She knew she couldn’t beat Miyu Yamashita through strength so her plan was to use psychological warfare. By using the Good Night Express and a Sleeper Hold, Raku tricked Yamashita into falling asleep. However, Yamashita’s hand fell on top of Raku as they both laid on the mat so the referee saw it as a pin. The loud slap of the ref’s hand on the canvas woke Yamashita up and she gave Raku the Attitude Adjustment out of instinct before pinning her properly.

The score was tied 5-5 going into the main event so the final match was the decider. No winner could be determined between Maki Itoh and Yuki Aino in regulation time. The clock ran out right when Aino attempted to Side Suplex Itoh out of the ring too so at least a potential injury was avoided. In overtime, Itoh fought to put Aino in the Itoh Special. There was so much focus on the struggle that Itoh found an opening to use a Jackknife Pin to get the 1 Count out of nowhere. That result won the series for the Spring/Summer Eleven!

Team captain Nakajima was given the prize vouchers from Tetsuya Koda at the end of the show. She told everyone she still had unused lunch tickets from the last PPV show. They were given to the other team but there wasn’t enough for all of them. They all agreed to give the spare tickets to the wrestlers who won their matches.

Last day of the Ultimate Tag League and the four active teams all have a chance to win. It’s whoever finishes in first place uncontested who wins the league. If there is a tie at the end of the show then there will be a final match to break the deadlock. Junretsu and Eruption have the clearest chances to win in one match as long as one or the other loses. The 37KAMIINA and DAMNATION need to win their matches and hope one or the other doesn’t lose just to reach the tiebreaker.

Super Sasadango Machine attempted to crash another NOAH show this week to hold negotiations with Takashi Sugiura and Kazushi Sakuraba. He was stopped at the entrance again but this time purchased a ticket to be allowed into the show. Unfortunately he was told by a staff member that neither Sugiura or Sakuraba were present. Sasadango explained to him that he brought gifts for Sugiura and Sakuraba and asked for them to be passed along. Sugiura is getting sasadango dumplings while Sakuraba is getting medicine for his pollen allergies.

X in the Tokyo Joshi Pro opener is still a mystery. YUMI’s big news over the weekend is she’s entering the idol industry as part of a new group called Tokyo Survivor. So that’s her completely out of wrestling now.

1. Masahiro Takanashi Vs Fuminori Abe

January was supposed to be the return match for Masahiro Takanashi after being out of action with knee injuries. However he cancelled his self-produced show due to the pandemic. After months of waiting he finally decided to go ahead with the show and is setting it up for this July. Takanashi’s scheduled opponent hasn’t changed. It’s Fuminori Abe, the man he last fought when his injury happened. This year Takanashi has done an exhibition match and has shown up on some wrestling shows here and there but he hasn’t been in a proper wrestling match since March 2020 where his injury took place.

Also on the show are Chris Brookes, Yukio Sakaguchi, Isami Kodaka, Emi Sakura and the UMA Corps. More are expected to appear.

Team Red: Shoko Nakajima, Nodoka Tenma, Yuka Sakazaki, Nao Kakuta, Marika Kobashi, Raku, Pom Harajuku, Mirai Maiumi, Suzume, Sena Shiori & Moka Miyamoto

Team White: Rika Tatsumi, Yuki Kamifuku, Yuki Aino, Miyu Yamashita, Mizuki, Hyper Misao, Miu Watanabe, Hikari Noa, Haruna Neko, Mahiro Kiryu & Arisu Endo

Two teams went into battle to win the much desired all you can eat meal from Genghis Khan Kirishima. Team Red were led by Shoko Nakajima while Team White was captained by Rika Tatsumi. They cheered on their teammates throughout the 11 match challenge while Shota and Tetsuya Koda did commentary.

Nakajima went first for her team and defeated Mahiro Kiryu in the opening match. 2 Count Rules meant everybody was kept on their toes and looking for quick pins. Nakajima proved that by using a Hurricanrana to win.

Team Red then went 2-0 when Pom Harajuku beat Arisu Endo. The rookie tried to capitalise from a missed Pom Do Justice but Harajuku dodged her follow up and got her finisher the second time for the pin.

HikaShio were pitted against each other with both Hikari Noa and Sena Shiori determined to win. Noa got the better of her tag partner with a Rotating Leg Fold cradle (I thought she had a name for that, the Saigo No Bansan or something?).

A karate confrontation was up next when Miyu Yamashita faced Moka Miyamoto. After some back and forth sparring, Yamashita won with the Skull Kick, tying the scored at 2-2.

The first of several time limit draws started with Mirai Maiumi Vs Hyper Misao. But before that happened, Misao came out wearing another mask over her own. She claimed to be an incarnation of the being that controls the masks of all heroes and it had taken over Misao’s body to search for a once in a century talent. She believes Maiumi is that person and she offered her a superhero mask that contained the spirits of all the past heroes. Maiumi fell for the trick and Misao attacked her, revealing she isn’t being possessed at all. The five minutes expired while Mirai was trying to get her opponent in the Miramare. She went back to the move when the match restarted but Misao rolled on top of her for the sudden death 1 Count Pin to win.

The restaurant sponsoring the show specializes in lamb meat so Miu Watanabe spent last night counting sheep in bed so she could win with her head full of sheep. Marika Kobashi though kicked out of a Falling Canadian Backbreaker at one and fought Watanabe to a time limit draw. Kobashi then surprised Watanabe with a Cradle to quickly win during extra time. After six matches the show was at its halfway point and the captains did quick interviews about the results so far. It was 3-3 so still all to play for.

The Raku Vs Yuki Aino match began with Raku inviting Aino to lie down next to her for the Good Night Express. It also caused the referee to lie down too. When it came to actually wrestling, Aino pinned Raku with the Side Suplex.

Yuki Kamifuku is confused over why Nao Kakuta’s nickname is “Rat Chaser”. Kakuta explained that it’s not her nickname but her catchphrase. Also, Kakuta has been here for four months already and everyone has accepted her except for one person, Yuki Kamifuku! She was determined to beat her today even is Kamifuku is a champion. The two fought tooth and nail with each other, lasting the full five minutes. In overtime, Kakuta gouged Kamifuku’s eyes from behind and pinned her with a School Boy for the upset.

Mizuki described her match with Nodoka Tenma like it was a rabbit against a raccoon. She Dropkicked Tenma out of the ring then hit a Diving Body Press out of the ring. Tenma tried to do the Killswitch but Mizuki countered it into the Cutie Special for the pinfall.

With two matches left, Team White had a chance to win the challenge early if Haruna Neko could beat Yuka Sakazaki. Luckily for Team Red, Sakazaki outsmarted Neko and won with the Magical Merry-Go-Round.

With the score tied at 5-5 it was all on the line in the final match. Team White captain Tatsumi fought against Suzume, who knew she now had a lot of responsibility on her shoulders. She went for the win but couldn’t get Tatsumi pinned for long enough. Time ran out and the last match went into overtime. Suzume kicked out of a Hip Attack before the 1 Count but she was done for when Tatsumi hit a Sliding Hip attack for the victory.

Team White were declared the winners and given the meal voucher by Koda. Tatsumi wanted to go eat with Mizuki straight away but then said all of Team White should go together to celebrate. Nakajima complained about the results and told Koda that Suzume deserves something for her performance. He should do something before Nakajima reveals what secret Maria Makino merchandise Koda keeps in his room. Koda stopped her and said everyone who wrestled today deserves a meal so he will treat everyone to lunch at Genghis Khan Kirishima!

4. Fuminori Abe Vs Leo Isaka

Champions versus challengers main event for both of the BASARA titles. Daichi Kazato is trying to get Takumi Tsukamoto’s attention for a Union MAX Title match. Yusuke Kubo made Isami Kodaka submit at the last show.

Hang on, I thought the Jacket Match was supposed to be Ryota Nakatsu’s thing. He’s the one who is good at it.

5. DDT UNIVERSAL Title: Yuki Ueno (c) Vs Yusuke Okada
6. KO-D 6-Man Tag Team Titles: Akito, Kazuki Hirata & Shota (c) Vs Tetsuya Endo, Soma Takao & Yuji Hino
7. DDT Extreme Title: Shunma Katsumata (c) Vs Chris Brookes

The bad blood between Shunma Katsumata and Chris Brookes has come back to the fore. Brookes has hated Katsumata ever since Brookes got banned from Twitter for three weeks when he threatened Katsumata online. He got a DDT Extreme Title shot by telling the champion it would be a clean match with no cheating involved. It was immediately shown to be a lie the moment the match was confirmed. Now it’s up to Katsumata to decide what kind of match they should have. He will be in the middle of a Big Japan death match tournament when this bout happens so he’ll already be pretty beaten up.

Soma Takao is getting more annoyed because Akito keeps reminding him of Young Communication. If he pesters him enough maybe Soma will actually join the Young Communication Generation… Nah!

What is going on? Jun Akiyama hasn’t won a match in DDT since becoming the KO-D Openweight Champion. It doesn’t help that his next challenger Kazusada Higuchi is on fire right now. That Brain Claw is nasty looking and his hard head can take being thrown into the ring post with no problem.

I’m starting to get high hopes that the feud between Yuki Ueno and Yusuke Okada will have legs. Some good stuff between them so far.

The feud of the Spring is here, Saki Akai’s photobook against The Young Bucks book! If “Killing The Business” can pin “Lip Hip Shake” then it will become the 1,500th Iron Man Heavymetalweight Champion!

ALL OUT will have disbanded by the time this show happens. This will be the first match Konosuke Takeshita and Yuki Iino will be opponents in unaffiliated from each other.

6. DDT Extreme Title – Kids Room Death Match 37 (Sauna) Count Edition: Shunma Katsumata (c) Vs MAO

The DDT Extreme Title will be defended in a Kids Room Death Match. Fitting given how much Shunma Katsumata and MAO act like kids whenever they fight each other. You can win with a normal 3 count but you can also win when all of your 1 and 2 counts add up to a total score of 37 (which in Japanese kind of sounds like Sauna). No rope breaks are allowed and weapons are permitted except those considered by the referee to be particularly dangerous.

Yuki Ueno and Yusuke Okada have to be split apart and put on opposite teams again.

2. “Futari wa Princess” Max Heart Tournament – Semi Final: Miyu Yamashita & Maki Itoh Vs Shoko Nakajima & Hyper Misao
3. “Futari wa Princess” Max Heart Tournament – Final: X & X Vs X & X

We’re down to four teams: NEO Biishiki-gun, HikaShio, 121000000 and Kyoraku Kyomei. Ever since Sakisama returned to Tokyo Joshi Pro for her latest campaign, Sena Shiori has been a regular opponent for her in what has been a one sided feud so far. The other side of the bracket involves two teams both with massive momentum behind them.

The teams will now consist of 11 participants instead of 12 because Maki Itoh has a scheduling conflict and cannot be on the show. I have no inkling of what the schedule clash is so you’re not getting any speculation here. Team White is captained by Rika Tatsumi and Team Red has Shoko Nakajima as their captain. A lottery will determine who from the roster will be on which team. Each match has a 5 minute time limit and 2 Count pins. If the time expires then 1 Count sudden death overtime begins to determine the winner. The team with the most wins at the end gets the Genghis Khan Kirishima prize voucher.

Tokyo Korakuen Hall

1. Junretsu Vs Eruption!: Jun Akiyama & Makoto Oishi Vs Kazusada Higuchi & Yukio Sakaguchi
2. DDT UNIVERSAL TITLE: Yuki Ueno (c) Vs Yusuke Okada

Okada has stepped up to Ueno, jealous of the DDT UNIVERSAL Champion for being more successful and better looking than him. There’s still a sense of friendly competition going on between them but that could get thrown out the window if the match gets heated.

It looks like Ikuto Hidaka has virtually swept the Ganbare☆Pro roster but Kouki Iwasaki wants another shot at him. They last fought each other in a singles match back in November.

Onryo is a big step up from Shota’s last opponent that’s for sure.

The new GWC 6-Man Tag Team Champions have decided to hold off on defending the belts until this show. It was Shinichiro Tominaga’s idea because he does not want to risk losing the titles before they make it to Korakuen Hall.

Wrestlers announced to appear include Moeka Haruhi, Minoru Fujita, Yasu Urano, Miyuki Takase and Ayumi Hayashi.


Akiyama Joins DDT, Max Heart 1st Rounds, Watase Injured, Ueno Can’t Decide

February 15, 2021

Today a press conference was held by CyberFight to give some big news for DDT and NOAH. On the DDT side, Jun Akiyama has signed a one year full time contract with DDT. On the NOAH side, Keiji Muto has signed a two year contract with NOAH. President Sanshiro Takagi said the signings were made because he believes these two treasures will be the driving force behind CyberFight becoming No. 1 in the pro wrestling world. Takagi originally asked Akiyama to join DDT back in January after having conversations with All Japan at the end of last year. Akiyama held off on making a deal because of his knee surgery and asked to wait until after “KAWASAKI STRONG 2021” to make a decision. As soon as the main event was done and the show was over, Akiyama accepted Takagi’s offer to become DDT’s head coach. Akiyama knew of the risks involved and wants to put everything he has into DDT. Naomichi Marufuji believes Muto’s starpower is important to help make NOAH become a global company. He also has a strong sense of responsibility towards the company after becoming the GHC Heavyweight Champion. Muto said as long as NOAH has the No. 1 wrestler in the industry, CyberFight needs to become the No. 1 organization as well.

DDT “JUDGEMENT 2021 ~DDT 24TH ANNIVERSARY~”, 28/03/2021
Tokyo Korakuen Hall

1. KO-D Openweight Title: Jun Akiyama (c) Vs Kazusada Higuchi

There are only two wrestlers who have beaten Akiyama in DDT so far. Tetsuya Endo and Kazusada Higuchi. Akiyama got his win back from Endo yesterday and he won’t consider himself a deserving KO-D Openweight Champion until he avenges his embarrassing defeat to Higuchi. So that’s the main event of the 24th Anniversary show set.

There has only been one person who has given backlash to Akiyama’s coaching in DDT. Danshoku Dieno doesn’t like the way Akiyama sees pro wrestling which is understandable given how much Dieno has represented DDT in the past. Akiyama welcomes the criticism and invites Dieno to show him his point of view. But he also warns that as head coach he won’t let members of the roster rebel against him just for the sake of it.

7. The Past, Present & Future Of Tokyo Joshi Pro Cross On The Mat!: Miyu Yamashita & Mirai Maiumi defeated Rika Tatsumi & Suzume when Yamashita pinned Suzume with the Attitude Adjustment (10:15).

Tokyo Joshi Pro went back to its roots with a return to mat wrestling matches inside TwinBox AKIHABARA. The venue hosted TJPW’s very first event where three trainees including Miyu Yamashita took part in exhibition matches alongside musical performances from idol groups. Today’s show aired on PPV through OPENREC. It begun with Sayuri Namba hosting a talk segment with Yuka Sakazaki and Yuki Kamifuku. Then there were musical performances with Maki Itoh, Rika Tatsumi and the Up Up Girls (Pro Wrestling). In the “crowd” were Hyper Misao and Shin Ultra Shoko waving penlights to the music and cheering the singers on.

The wrestlers gave out comments before the matches. Yamashita worked double duty by being in both the opener and the main event because of some last minute changes. She found it meaningful for her to face the newest TJPW wrestler Arisu Endo in the room where TJPW began. She also brought back her dancing entrance to “Genghis Khan”. Endo Body Slammed Yamashita onto the mat and applied a Camel Clutch. Yamashita powered out of it, put Endo in a Cobra Clutch and pulled her down onto the mat to submit her.

Sena Shiori knew that her match with Misao was really a Handicap Match withShoko also involved. However she still fell for Misao’s trick when she was invited to become a part time superhero only to be attacked with cloak. Shoko passed over a Hyper Ultra Ball but Shiori intercepted it and used it as a weapon herself. Misao was able to recover and win with the Hypami Returns.

Both Itoh and Moka Miyamoto are new to mat wrestling despite the gap in regular wrestling experience between them. Itoh struggled out of the Manjigatame and dropped Miyamoto with a Wrist-Clutch DDT. She then finished her off with a Crab Hold.

Pom Harajuku said she is always at the mercy of The Magical Sugar Rabbits whenever they wrestle so she needed her teamwork with Mahiro Kiryu to be perfect against them. Sakazaki was excited to wrestle on a mat again because that’s a lawless area where you can do anything! They did just that by using the security barrier like a top turnbuckle to do high flying moves off of. Mizuki also used Sakazaki as a stepping stone to do a Flying Cross Body to Kiryu. Sakazaki pinned Harajuku with a Delayed Brainbuster.

Kamifuku noticed that Marika Kobashi’s makeup has been getting darker recently and it makes her look like a demon. She was going to be responsible like an older sister and clean the makeup off of Kobashi’s face. She brought along facewipes and tried to use them but Kobashi fought her off with Chops. Kamifuku removed her own makeup to show her opponent it is okay to show your true appearance but Kobashi still resisted. Kamifuku put her in a Manjigatame and forcefully wiped the makeup off Kobashi’s face, giving her no choice but to give up.

The Up Up Girls called their concert at the start of the show a warm up for their match next. Raku wants everyone to eat sweets which is why she gave Nodoka Tenma a candy necklace when the match began. But it was really a surprise attack to set up the Good Night Express. Tenma would later wrap the candy around her fist to load up her punches. Miu Watanabe used the Giant Swing on Yuki Aino. Raku fought off The Bakuretsu Sisters with the Brain Chop. The match ended when Hikari Noa used her Figur 4 Clutch Hold to pin Haruna Neko. Noa has named the pinning combination the Saigo No Bansan (Last Supper).

Yamashita came back out for the main event. Mirai Maiumi wanted to tag with her to experience the history of TJPW. Tatsumi thought Yamashita was getting carried away by the nostalgia so she wanted to give her a good beating. Yamashita and Tatsumi fought over by the announce table while Maiumi and Suzume kept their wrestling on the mat. Tatsumi missed the Hip Attack and collided with the wall. Miaumi hit her with a Lariat on the rebound. Yamashita countered the Ring A Bell into the Attitude Adjustment on Suzume for the three count.

After the match Yamashita spoke about the first show from 8 years ago. It was just her, KANNA, Chikage Kiba and the referee Daisuke Kiso taking part in matches. Over the years her number of friends increased and she hopes TJPW will continue to grow even bigger.

DDT “THIS IS OUR 9TH NARIMASU PARTY! 2021”, 20/02/2021
Tokyo Narimasu Act Hall

1. Mizuki Watase Vs Yusuke Okada

After Junretsu lost their match yesterday. Mizuki Watase made his feelings clear backstage that Yusuke Okada is not deserving of a spot in DDT. He was excited to see him enter DDT at first but believes he quickly settled into a safe position under Akiyama’s coaching instead of making a name for himself. Okada explains that DDT made him team with Junretsu while Akiyama is recovering but Watase thinks that excuse is not good enough. They will settle their differences in a singles match.

DDT “INTO THE FIGHT 2021”, 28/02/2021
Tokyo Korakuen Hall

1. Iron Man Heavymetalweight Title: The Young Bucks Autobiography “Killing The Business” (c) Vs X

The Iron Man Heavymetalweight Title was sent back to Japan after a five month stay in the United States. It ended up in AEW where a copy of The Young Bucks autobiography became the most recent champion (my quick review: decent book, needed crazy road stories to make it a must read). The book was shipped over to Japan along with the title belt so DDT did the logical thing and booked it for a title defence next month. Match type and opponent(s) are yet to be determined.
