4. GWC 6-Man Tag Team Titles: Ken Ohka, Yumehito Imanari & Miss Mongol defeated Kenichiro Arai, Masked Mystery & Shota (c) when Imanari pinned Shota with the Koshi Clutch (14:40).
*Hattoshite Good Alps Industry fails in V3. GPW becomes the 22nd GWC 6-Man Tag Team Champions!
5. Independent World Jr. Heavyweight Title – Delayed Young Drama Cup Final: Keisuke Ishii (c) defeated Kazuki Hirata with the High Angle Double Arm DDT (20:28).
*V4 for Keisuke Ishii.

This was not your regular Kazuki Hirata appearance. When he entered for the main event his usual “TOKYO GO!” song switched over to Hirata’s first entry song “Katare! Namida!” by SEX MACHINEGUN. There was no dancing or comedy, Hirata was here to win the Independent World Jr. Heavyweight Title from Keisuke Ishii! Hirata hit the GO! GO! Splash for a nearfall but couldn’t go through with the Egoist Driver when he needed to. Ishii slipped out of the move and hit a Tiger Suplex to turn the tide against his opponent. The High Angle Double Arm DDT ended up finishing Hirata and giving Ishii another title defence. After the match Ishii said his goal is to defend the title 17 times so he can break the championship record for most defences. This is only his fourth one so he couldn’t lost to Hirata today. Hirata accepted total defeat and encouraged Ishii to reach his goal. The show ended with all of Ganbare☆Wrestling gathering together in the ring. A tearful Ken Ohka spoke about how wonderful the group became this year. But it won’t be enough until Ganpro makes it to Korakuen Hall, Sumo Hall and even the Tokyo Dome! In 2020 Ganpro will become a major pro wrestling company!

Okay so I didn’t know this but the current Real GUTS Army team have actually been called Hattoshite Good Alps Industry because Guts Ishijima was no longer involved. The Hattoshite name is based off of a Toshihiko Tahara song. It probably doesn’t matter anymore because Ken Ohka, Yumehito Imanari & Miss Mongol beat them to win back the GWC 6-Man Tag Team Titles. It was the result of a months long plan by Imanari to discover Kenichiro Arai’s weakness. Whenever they locked up, Imanari would make a strange noise that would make Arai run away with fear. He regained some control when Masked Mystery distracted the referee so he could remove a turnbuckle pad. Shota swung the pad but Imanari ducked and Arai took the hit. Ohka & Mongol held the others back while Imanari pinned Shota with his version of the Gedo Clutch, causing the title change. Ohka wants to claim the belts as a Ganpro championship from now on. All they have to do is pretend the “GW” in GWC stands for Ganbare☆Wrestling instead of Guts World. Mongol revealed in a backstage interview that her daughter is currently sick in hospital. When Mongol visits her later in the day she will cheer her up by telling her the good news about her mother winning a championship.

TOKYO JOSHI PRO “MERRY CHRISTMAS! 2019”, 22/12/2019

325 Fans – Super No Vacancy Full House

1. Christmas Special 4 Big Singles Match: Miyu Yamashita defeated Suzume with a Right High Kick (6:41).
2. Christmas Special 3 Way Match: Shoko Nakajima defeated Nodoka Tenma and Haruna Neko when Nakajima pinned Neko with the Northern Lights Suplex (5:36).
3. Christmas Special Tag Match: Yuna Manase & Pom Harajuku defeated Sakisama & Mahiro Kiryu when Harajuku pinned Kiryu with a School Boy (7:02).
4. Christmas Special 4 Big Singles Match: Mizuki Vs Hikari Noa ended in a Time Limit Draw (10:00).
5. Christmas Special 4 Big Singles Match: Maki Itoh defeated Mirai Maiumi with the Flying Big Head (7:21).
6. Rika Tatsumi & Miu Watanabe defeated Yuki Aino & Raku when Tatsumi submitted Raku with the Dragon Sleeper (9:59).
7. Christmas Special 4 Big Singles Match: Yuka Sakazaki defeated Mina Shirakawa with the Magical Magical Girl Splash (7:18).

The Tokyo Joshi Pro Christmas show had a couple of presents in store for everyone. Four singles matches were determined by a lottery. In the main event Yuka Sakazaki and Mina Shirakawa faced off. Shirakawa had lost the Best Body Japan Women’s Title earlier this week so an opportunity to wrestle the Princess Of Princess Champion would be a great way to bounce back from that. However Sakazaki was able to beat her by countering the Implant DDT into the Merry-Go-Round. The Magical Magical Girl Splash afterwards finished the match. Sakazaki gave Shirakawa credit for getting stronger. She told everyone to go out and enjoy what’s left of this year.

It wasn’t a win but Hikari Noa can keep her head held high for going to a time limit draw with Mizuki. She wasn’t even at much of a risk of losing when the time expired. Mizuki went for the Diving Foot Stomp and Noa rolled out of the way, avoiding the move. So you can’t say she was saved by the bell.

Yuna Manase, Pom Harajuku and Mahiro Kiryu took part in a lottery to determine who would team with Sakisama in Match #3. Kiryu pulled out the piece of paper with the drawing of a rose on it, which meant she got the spot. Unfortunately nobody told Sakisama. She asked why did she have to team with “such a poor smelly child.” She agreed to team with Kiryu and ordered her not to mess up. Whether she did or not, you can be the judge. Sakisama went to do the Big Boot into the corner, Harajuku dodged it, Kiryu took the boot and Harajuku rolled her up for the three count. Sakisama blamed Kiryu for the loss but Kiryu stood up to her! She lost today but she didn’t lose to Sakisama and someday… she will definitely beat her! Surprisingly, Sakisama was somewhat impressed by Kiryu’s attitude. She told Kiryu to get stronger and to be patient for her to return from Paris.

The show featured a few important returns outside of the matches. Hyper Misao reappeared after the 3 Way Match to surprise Shoko Nakajima. Misao returned because she thinks there are not enough heroes in Tokyo Joshi. Her goal for 2020 is to make everyone in TJPW a superhero! She said if she beats Nakajima on 4th January then Nakajima will have to rename herself Hyper Shoko. This idea annoys Nakajima because she likes being a kaiju and she doesn’t want to lose the “Nakajima” part of her name either. Maybe if she beats Misao then Misao will have to be a kaiju and change her name? Nakajima was about to suggest one using Misao’s real name but before she could finish, Misao called for her music to play and left the ring.

Natsumi Maki appeared at the start of the show to announce her return match on 4th January. Maki suffered a knee injury in her first International Princess Title defence against Yuna Manase in September. She successfully got it surgically repaired and had been training for her comeback ever since.

Last but not least, another trainee announced she will debut on the Korakuen Hall show. Shiori was first introduced to the public back in April as part of the same class as Mirai Maiumi and Suzume. She reappeared at a fan club event in August before showing up again here today. She also said from now on her ring name is Sena Shiori.


D-Ou Repercussions, Tokyo Joshi Christmas, Ganbare☆Onita

December 11, 2019

DDT “D-OU GRAND PRIX 2020 IN HARAJUKU 2 DAYS”, 14/12/2019
Tokyo Belle Epoque Beauty School 2nd School Hall

1. Yukio Sakaguchi & Makoto Oishi Vs Shunma Katsumata & Keigo Nakamura
2. 3 Way Tag Match: Toru Owashi & Yuki Ueno Vs Akito & Yukio Naya Vs Masahiro Takanashi & Antonio Honda
3. DISASTER BOX Vs DAMNATION!: HARASHIMA, Kazuki Hirata & Naomi Yoshimura Vs Daisuke Sasaki, Soma Takao & Mad Paulie
4. Special Single Match: Danshoku Dieno Vs Bull James
5. D-Ou Grand Prix 2020 – A Block: Yuki Iino (6) Vs Chihiro Hashimoto (4)
6. D-Ou Grand Prix 2020 – A Block: Tetsuya Endo (5) Vs Keisuke Ishii (6)
7. D-Ou Grand Prix 2020 – A Block: Konosuke Takeshita (6) Vs Chris Brookes (5)

One round left in the group stage of the D-Ou Grand Prix and it’s all to play for. In the A Block each of the three matches have repercussions for the top spot. For the five still alive they need more than just a win to reach the final. Let’s look at what they need.

Yuki Iino: Needs at least a draw and for Takeshita & Ishii to both not win. If either do win, Iino will lose the tiebreaker against them. If both lose, Iino can qualify with a draw because he wins tiebreakers against Endo & Brookes.

Keisuke Ishii: Needs to win and he will qualify regardless of the other results. He will beat any tiebreakers against Iino & Takeshita. If he gets a draw then he will need Iino to not win and Takeshita Vs Brookes to end in a draw.

Konosuke Takeshita: Needs to win and have Ishii lose. There is no possible tiebreaker he can win.

Tetsuya Endo: Needs to win, have Iino lose and Takeshita Vs Brookes end in a draw. He is still alive if Brookes beats Takeshita because of the draw they had. In that situation Endo Vs Brookes in a playoff decides who wins the block.

Chris Brookes: Needs to win, have Iino lose and Endo Vs Ishii end in a draw. That way his win over Ishii is the tiebreaker. As mentioned above, Brookes and Endo both winning creates a playoff between them unless Iino gets a point.

DDT “D-OU GRAND PRIX 2020 IN HARAJUKU 2 DAYS”, 15/12/2019
Tokyo Belle Epoque Beauty School 2nd School Hall

1. Konosuke Takeshita & Yuki Iino Vs Yuki Ueno & Keigo Nakamura
2. Chris Brookes & Kazuki Hirata Vs Bull James & Antonio Honda
3. DAMNATION Vs ALL OUT!: Tetsuya Endo & Mad Paulie Vs Akito & Shunma Katsumata
4. Iron Man Heavymetalweight Title – Battle Royal: Makoto Oishi (c) Vs Toru Owashi Vs Saki Akai Vs Masahiro Takanashi Vs Tomomitsu Matsunaga Vs Mizuki Watase Vs Yukio Naya
5. O-40 Title: Gorgeous Matsuno (c) Vs Cherry
6. D-Ou Grand Prix 2020 – B Block: Soma Takao (4) Vs Yukio Sakaguchi (2)
7. D-Ou Grand Prix 2020 – B Block: Daisuke Sasaki (8) Vs Naomi Yoshimura (0)
8. D-Ou Grand Prix 2020 – B Block: HARASHIMA (8) Vs Masato Tanaka (10)

The B Block is simpler to work out but still has a risk of getting messy. Masato Tanaka only needs a draw to qualify. HARASHIMA needs to beat Tanaka and hope Daisuke Sasaki does not beat Naomi Yoshimura. However if HARASHIMA and Sasaki both win, we get a three way tie with the tiebreakers all cancelling each other. The Soma Takao Vs Yukio Sakaguchi match does not matter in this situation.

Sakisama will be taking an absence from Tokyo Joshi Pro by the end of the year. Before she leaves she takes part in a lottery tag match. How will she handle teaming with either Yuna Manase, Pom Harajuku or Mahiro Kiryu?

GANBARE☆WRESTLING “WHITE BREATH 2019”, 22/12/2019
Tokyo Art Center White Studio

1. Ganpro Special Mixed Match ~A Beautiful Man, Beautiful Women And A Pervert~: Hagane Shinno & Moeka Haruhi Vs Shinichiro Tominaga & HARUKAZE
2. Ganpro Vs Real GUTS Army ~The Fourth Trial Singles Match Of Shuhei Washida~: Shuhei Washida Vs Guts Ishijima

DDT “D-OU GRAND PRIX 2020 THE FINAL!!”, 28/12/2019
Tokyo Korakuen Hall

1. Kazusada Higuchi Return Match: Kazusada Higuchi Vs X
2. Saki Akai “Okibariyasu” 7 Match Series – 2nd Match: Sakura Hirota Vs Saki Akai
3. Toshiwasure! Special Single Match: Shinya Aoki Vs Super Sasadango Machine
4. D-Ou Grand Prix 2020 – Final: Winner Of A Block vs Winner Of B Block

So if we end up getting a playoff tiebreaker for either of the blocks, they are likely to take place on the same night as the final. That is not for certain but in the previous D-Ou tournaments in DDT it was always the backup plan.

Nobuhiro Shimatani will be on the show. It will be his first appearance in DDT since becoming a freelancer.

TOKYO JOSHI PRO “TOKYO JOSHI PRO ’20”, 04/01/2020
Tokyo Korakuen Hall

1. Saki Akai Vs Yuki Kamifuku
2. Shoko Nakajima Vs Hyper Misao
3. Mizuki Vs Thunder Rosa
4. International Princess Title: Maki Itoh (c) Vs Hikari Noa
5. Princess Tag Team Titles: Rika Tatsumi & Miu Watanabe (c) Vs Nodoka Tenma & Yuki Aino
6. Princess Of Princess Title: Yuka Sakazaki (c) Vs Miyu Yamashita

Now that she is a superhero again, Hyper Misao is taking time off to train at her local hyperbolic time chamber. Her return match will be against Shoko Nakajima on 4th January. It is fitting for a superhero’s first fight back to be against the Big Kaiju!

Saki Akai makes her annual appearance for Tokyo Joshi. Akai’s opponent is Yuki Kamifuku, who looks up to her not just as a wrestler but as a professional. Kamifuku thinks Akai is a good example of a joshi who can be both feminine and strong in the ring. She asked for this match to see if she can reach Akai’s level with her own style and beauty.

This is not the completed card. Tetsuya Koda is waiting to see if any inactive members of the roster will be ready in time before he sets everything in stone. Could an injured wrestler be close to full recovery?

The success of last month’s Bakuha Koshien show will be followed up next year with a tour of events across Japan. Atsushi Onita also wants to find a way to bring the show over to Tampa next year for Wrestlemania week. Ken Ohka is so enthusiastic with the project that he asked Onita to co-promote a Ganbare☆Wrestling show with him next January. Onita agreed and Ganbare☆Onita Oya☆Pro Wrestling (Gan☆Nita☆Pro Wrestling for short) was born.

Can the momentum of Japan’s rugby team give Yuki Iino all the power he needs to beat HARASHIMA for the championship?

GAKE NO FUCHI JOSHI PRO “FLAG RAISING BATTLE”, 24/12/2019
Saitama Wrestle Battle Hall

1. X Vs X
2. Miyako Matsumoto Vs Jiro Kuroshio

Miyako Matsumoto wanted to wrestle Jiro Kuroshio before he moves to America next year. It took some effort to book a match with his schedule but he is available on Christmas Eve. Another match is planned for the event. Bigger cards in the future depend on the success of this show.

GAKE NO FUCHI JOSHI PRO “GAKEPPUCHI SNOW WHITE 2020”, 04/01/2020
Tokyo Itabashi Green Hall

Sanshiro Takagi noticed that the 4th January is becoming an important date on the calendar for joshi wrestling. Tokyo Joshi Pro has established an annual Korakuen Hall show on that date, Diana will be running that date for a second year in a row and Stardom is getting in on the action too. Takagi wants to make Gake no Fuchi Joshi Pro number one so he went ahead and booked Itabashi Green Hall on that date in 2020 without telling Matsumoto! However since this company is independent from DDT that means Gake no Fuchi Joshi is now 30,920 yen in debt. The show is called “GAKEPPUCHI SNOW WHITE 2020” because this is an entertainment war and they are competing against “Cinderella”!


Astronauts Showdown! Bookstore Pro Wrestling, Delayed Young Drama Cup Final

November 19, 2019

BASARA “BASARA 112 ~BANQUET~”, 26/11/2019
Shin-Kiba 1st RING

1. Daiki Shimomura Vs Ikuto Hidaka
2. Ryuichi Sekine, Minoru Fujita & Gouma Ryu Vs Ryota Nakatsu, Daichi Kazato & Masato Kamino
3. Yasu Urano & Takato Nakano Vs Naoki Tanizaki & Akiyori Takizawa
4. Saikyo Tag League 2019 ~ Astronauts Showdown!: Fuminori Abe Vs Takuya Nomura
5. Masahiro Takanashi & Isami Kodaka Vs Tsutomu Oosugi & Banana Senga
6. IRON FIST TAG Titles: FUMA & Yusuke Kubo (c) Vs Trans-Am ★ Hiroshi & SAGAT

The Union MAX Champion and his next challenger are teaming up for a match. But why? It’s all Isami Kodaka’s idea and is based on his history with Masahiro Takanashi. When Kodaka was the KO-D Openweight Champion in 2016, Takanashi was one of his challengers. The two teamed together before their title match. Kodaka remembers how tense it was as a champion to team with his challenger. He wants Takanashi to experience the same feeling. He has brought in what he thinks is the best team they should fight, the Speed Of Sounds!

Over in Big Japan this year’s Saikyo Tag League has been going on. Fuminori Abe entered the tournament with Takuya Nomura. The two regularly team together in BJW as Astronauts. Sadly the team only scored 6 points in their group and could not qualify for the semi-finals. So while the final rounds of the tournament is happening in Korakuen Hall, Abe and Nomura will instead be at BASARA wrestling each other.

TOKYO JOSHI PRO “FALL TOUR ’19 ~BEST REGARDS~”, 23/11/2019
Shin-Kiba 1st RING

DDT “BOOKSTORE PRO WRESTLING AGAIN”, 23/11/2019
Tokyo Inoo Book Store

1. Falls Count Anywhere 6-Man Tag Match: Sanshiro Takagi, Yuki Ueno & Naomi Yoshimura Vs Shinya Aoki, Shunma Katsumata & Yukio Naya

In 2008 when Sanshiro Takagi released his first book, DDT held a wrestling match inside of a bookstore. 11 years later to mark the release of Takagi’s next book, DDT is doing it again!

DDT “GOD BLESS DDT 2019”, 24/11/2019
Tokyo Korakuen Hall

1. Danshoku Dieno & Super Sasadango Machine Vs Shinya Aoki & Keigo Nakamura
2. 4 Way Tag Match: Akito & Shunma Katsumata Vs Tetsuya Endo & Mad Paulie Vs Yuki Ueno & Naomi Yoshimura Vs Yukio Sakaguchi & Yukio Naya
3. After Ultimate Party 2019 Special Tag Match: Konosuke Takeshita & Jiro Kuroshio Vs Antonio Honda & Miyu Yamashita

5. Iron Man Heavymetalweight Title – Time Difference Battle Royal: Kazuki Hirata (c) Vs Michiaki Nakano Vs Toru Owashi Vs Makoto Oishi Vs Mizuki Watase Vs Asuka Vs Hiroshi Yamato
6. KO-D Tag Team Titles: Daisuke Sasaki & Soma Takao (c) Vs Masahiro Takanashi & Chris Brookes
7. KO-D Openweight Title: HARASHIMA (c) Vs Yuki Iino

Yuki Iino has been bench pressing 200kg as part of his training for the main event. He thought the public contract signing was a public workout so HARASHIMA was there to see his lift. The downside for this kind of training is Iino risks re-injuring his elbow before the show. He swears it is in perfect condition.

Michiaki Nakano from Souken Holdings had a sparring session with Keigo Nakamura but he got beaten pretty easily. At least the Iron Man Heavymetalweight Title is now part of the Battle Royal he is entering.

Saki Akai has said the reason she is doing a 7 match series is to show her guest opponents how interesting wrestling in DDT can be. Tsukasa Fujimoto is no stranger to DDT so she is going into the match wanting to see if Akai is more than just a gorgeous looking pro wrestler. She is curious to see how Akai wrestles against her because Akai has spent almost her entire wrestling career in a company for male wrestlers.

GANBARE☆WRESTLING “WHITE BREATH 2019”, 22/12/2019
Tokyo Art Center White Studio

1. GWC 6-Man Tag Team Titles: Kenichiro Arai, Masked Mystery & Shota (c) Vs Ken Ohka, Yumehito Imanari & Miss Mongol
2. Independent World Jr. Heavyweight Title – Delayed Young Drama Cup Final: Keisuke Ishii (c) Vs Kazuki Hirata

Kazuki Hirata isn’t leaving Ganbare☆Wrestling just yet. He has unfinished business with Keisuke Ishii. A decade ago the generation that Hirata and Ishii belong to had their own rookies tournament called the Young Drama Cup. It only lasted two years. Ishii won the first one in 2009 and reached the final of the second one in 2010. Hirata entered the 2010 tournament but finished last with only a single victory. A lot has changed since then but the history of that tournament now surrounds the Independent World Jr. Heavyweight Title match.

6. KO-D Tag Team Titles: Daisuke Sasaki & Soma Takao (c) Vs Masahiro Takanashi & Chris Brookes
7. KO-D Openweight Title: HARASHIMA (c) Vs Yuki Iino

Yuki Iino won last weekend’s Gauntlet match to get the KO-D Openweight Title shot.

Jiro Kuroshio’s dad requested that Jiro and Konosuke Takeshita team together for Jiro’s final match in DDT. Takeshita agreed to it as long as Antonio Honda could be one of their opponents. Honda accepted the offer because he already has a tag team with Miyu Yamashita.

Honda was supposed to be in Match #3 but he pulled out to do the Kuroshio match. Danshoku Dieno takes his place as Super Sasadango Machine’s tag partner.

There is a problem with the Battle Royal. The Iron Man Heavymetalweight Title was supposed to be defended in it for the sake of Souken’s Michiaki Nakano. However Dieno is now the champion and he is booked on the match afterwards. So what does Nakano have to fight for?
