TOKYO JOSHI PRO “GIRLS FIGHT OUT #3”, 18/02/2017
Tokyo BASEMENT MON☆STAR
150 Fans – Super No Vacancy Full House

1. Syoko Nakajima defeated Nodoka-oneesan with the Northern Lights Suplex (7:56).
2. Yuu & Miyu Yamashita defeated Mil Clown & Rika Tatsumi when Yamashita pinned Tatsumi with the Attitude Adjustment (14:53).
3. “Back Bancho” Akane Miura Road To Graduation: Akane Miura defeated Maho Kurone with the Lariat (4:30).
4. SIN Biishiki-gun Vs Konkatsu-gun: Saki-nami & Martha defeated Azusa Takigawa & Nonoko when Saki submitted Takigawa with a Foot Choke (15:34).

Saki-nami is really no good at making friends in Tokyo Joshi Pro. Her snooty behaviour made another enemy today. This time she called Azusa Takigawa a “White Pig”. Saki made things worse in the main event when she accidentally knocked out Daisuke Kiso with a missed Big Boot. Takigawa then pinned Saki-nami but there was no referee. Rika Tatsumi climbed into the ring and slapped the mat three three times in Kiso’s place. The GM Tetsuya Koda refused to end the match. He told them that Kiso was the designated referee so the match must continue. Saki then trapped Takigawa in a Foot Choke and made her submit. Saki said she doesn’t understand the elegance of vulnerable people then left the ring with her maid Martha. Takigawa asked Tatsumi to help her battle SIN Biishiki-gun even though Tatsumi is not a part of Konkatsu-gun. On 12th March they will get their revenge!

Akane Miura doesn’t have a special relationship with Maho Kurone but she still thinks their match today will be a special memory for her. Before Miura graduates she wants to reunite Bust Deluxe with Nonoko one more time.

The soon to debut Yuna Manase appeared at intermission and introduced herself to the audience. She said it was her first time at a Tokyo Joshi show and she is impressed. The action is a lot faster and more fierce than it looks on video.

Hyper Misao was in attendance to give an update on her health. She had surgery to repair her ACL one month ago and is currently in rehabilitation. She is asking her fans to please be patient for her return.

She would love to form a tag team with Akai and they can be called SM Gun together.

DDT is considering lifting its ban of fan recordings at its live shows. A trial run will take place at the Nerima show. Fans in attendance will be allowed to record video as long as they film just the matches (no entrances because of music rights). Fans can only use phones (no tablets or cameras) that are held below eye level and nobody is allowed to deliberately film other people in the audience. Depending on results and feedback DDT will experiment with these rules as time goes on.

Soma Takao now finds himself as the hottest free agent in DDT. Units all around are falling over themselves to sign him so a 6 Way Match will determine where he goes. Whoever wins will have their unit recruit Soma. If Soma himself wins he gets to choose who to join, which is most likely Smile Squash. But T2Hide and NωA badly want him. That’s not all, Rekka wants Soma to be the ace of his home promotion New Taiwan Pro Wrestling. T2Hide promises to make him their leader. NωA want him because he has a higher singing voice that none of the other members have. Last but not least, Saki Akai wants Soma to sign with the Oscar Promotion talent agency. Akai calls Oscar the largest unit in the wrestling world.

Kotatsu was asked to comment on its Iron Man Heavymetalweight Title defence but it kept silent.

TOKYO JOSHI PRO “GIRLS FIGHT OUT #3”, 18/02/2017
Tokyo BASEMENT MON☆STAR

1. “Back Bancho” Akane Miura Road To Graduation: Akane Miura Vs Maho Kurone
2. SIN Biishiki-gun Vs Konkatsu-gun: Saki-nami & Martha Vs Azusa Takigawa & Nonoko

Akane Miura announced today on her 20th birthday that she will be graduating from Tokyo Joshi Pro on 25th March. Miura was given an offer to go back to senior high school in April and she wishes to complete her education. She is unable to wrestle and concentrate on her studies at the same time so she had to make a decision. She had previously dropped out of high school but desired to return and thinks now is the perfect time in her life to do it. When she graduates in four years time she’ll consider returning to pro wrestling. She will continue to fight hard until her final match. Her next opponent is Maho Kurone who was upset to hear the news. One of the reasons Kurone came to Tokyo Joshi was to eat Miura. Now that Miura is leaving, Kurone promises she will only eat her hair and eyeballs.

There was even more sad news today. Azusa Takigawa and Nonoko were told to stop using issues of Zexy Magazine as a weapon in their matches. Zexy’s editorial department got in contact with Tokyo Joshi over the gimmick. While they appreciate having Konkatsu-gun as regular readers, they do not like their magazine being used as a weapon. Konsho-gun apologised to the editors and readers of the magazine and promised not to use Zexy for anything other than its intended purpose. They will refrain from using it as a weapon. Both Azusa Takigawa & Nonoko were crying their eyes out as they apologised. Zexy was their bible and now they feel like they just ended a relationship. The team is now in crisis. If they are no longer allowed to use marriage information magazines then can they still be called Konkatsu-gun (Marriage Army)?

TOKYO JOSHI PRO “GIRLS FIGHT OUT #2” Results

February 5, 2017

saiki-backdrop

TOKYO JOSHI PRO “GIRLS FIGHT OUT #2”, 05/02/2017
Tokyo BASEMENT MON☆STAR
150 Fans – Super No Vacancy Full House

1. Akane Miure defeated Itoh Maki with a Power Slam (5:34).
2. You Will Be In Time For Valentine’s Day! Encounter Just Before Valentine’s Day!: Miyu Yamashita & Mil Clown defeated Azusa Takigawa & Nonoko when Clown pinned Takigawa with the Mil Clutch α (12:02).
3. Saki-nami & Martha defeated Rika Tatsumi & Maho Kurone when Saki pinned Tatsumi with a Jackknife Pin (11:00).
4. Reika Saiki & Syoko Nakajima defeated Yuu & Nodoka-oneesan when Saiki pinned Nodoka with a Back Drop (17:25).

Reika Saiki was on the winning side today but her chest was left heavily bruised by Yuu’s chops. Saiki fought back with Middle Kicks and it was a Buzzsaw Kick to Nodoka-oneesan that led to her winning the match. Saiki said she will use this momentum to fight Yuu at full power when they face off for the TOKYO Princess Of Princess Title on 12th March. She has the muscle, energy, motivation and talent to win!

Saki-nami is showing more disdain towards Rika Tatsumi. It didn’t help that at Tatsumi was on the verge of beating her with the Dragon Sleeper. Saki’s arm fell three times but on the third drop her maid Martha caught her hand from outside the ring and held it up. When Tatsumi complained to the referee Martha smashed her with an Elbow Strike and Saki rolled her over with a Jackknife for the three count. Saki told Tatsumi to quietly quit wrestling and go start an ordinary family in the countryside. Those words brought out Azusa Takigawa. She’s annoyed that Saki made the idea of getting married sound so easy. Saki took a good look at Takigawa’s face and then called her an orangutan. Takigawa demanded a match between Konsho-gun and SIN Biishiki-gun for the next show on 18th February.

Itoh Maki tried to take her loss to Akane Miura in her stride. She said that although Miura pinned her, she still has the cuter face so the match is a tie. She then called out the stars of Tofu Pro Wrestling again despite being warned not to by management. She is annoyed that they are following so many wrestlers on Twitter but are avoiding her. Her challenge to them for a match is still around.

Tokyo Korakuen Hall

1. Special Single Match: Colt “Boom Boom” Cabana Vs Danshoku “Bin Bin” Dino

After spending a year working in Thailand, Michael Nakazawa is taking a break for a while and coming back home to Japan. That means Nakazawa is returning to DDT! This will be his first match in DDT since “JUDGEMENT 2016” when Kota Ibushi memorably gave him a Piledriver into a toilet.

A big main event is in store. Not just in physical size but in ego too. Naomi Yoshimura attended the match announcement wearing sunglasses and a fancy suit. He didn’t care about Akebono’s sumo accomplishments and ran down Kazusada Higuchi for losing to Mike Bailey and Ryota Nakatsu late last year. He threatened to blow away anyone who stands in his path. Higuchi was more polite. Being in the presence of Akebono is enough encouragement to withstand whatever Yuji Okabayashi throws at him. Akebono warned Yoshimura to respect him or be crushed.

In order to avoid reaching 10 failed title defences in a row, Nobuhiro Shimatani has to face the the only wrestler who has a worse history with the King Of Dark Championship than he does. And you know Gota Ihashi does not want to go back to that fate.

Shota Nakagawa is from AZUSA Project and Andromeda KEN is from Pro Wrestling ACE. KEN is also a dropout from the WRESTLE-1 school. Ohka wants more people to sign up, preferably people who like B’z so they can go do karaoke during the audition.

Tokyo BASEMENT MON☆STAR
150 Fans – Super No Vacancy Full House

1. Maho Kurone defeated Itoh Maki with the Reverse Swinging Neckbreaker Drop (6:43).
2. Great Pitfalls That People Who Want To Get Married Fall Into This Year: Syoko Nakajima & Akane Miura defeated Azusa Takigawa & Nonoko when Nakajima pinned Takigawa with the Northern Lights Suplex (10:42).
3. Yuu defeated Nodoka-oneesan with the Cross Armbreaker (6:26).
4. SIN Biishiki-gun Start!: Saki-sama & Martha defeated Miyu Yamashita & Rika Tatsumi when Akai pinned Tatsumi with a Jackknife Pin (10:10).

Saki Akai is now known as Saki-sama in Toyko Joshi Pro. She corrected Rika Tatsumi when she called her by her former name. Saki also said the main event would be memorable because it’s the debut of her maid Martha. Normally it is Martha’s job to clean everything, so Saki wanted her to get rid of the two bags of trash opposing them in the ring. Martha tried to so just that by using a mop against Tatsumi and Miyu Yamashita. Martha attacked Tatsumi with the mop non-stop and Saki pinned her with a basic Jackknife afterwards. Yamashita pulled Tatsumi away from danger after the match and Saki admonished her for behaving badly.

Mil Clown missed the show because of a cervical sprain. She is expected to be fully recovered before the next event. The planned 3 Way Match was turned into just a singles match where Maho Kurone defeated Itoh Maki. Afterwards Maki got on the mic and began talking about the new AKB48 TV show Tofu Pro Wrestling. She called out to each of the idols starring in the show and wants them to know she is waiting for them anytime! In a backstage interview Maki admitted she was told by her management not to talk about that but her mouth slipped.
