Princess Cup Final Fight, Imanari Revolution Approaches Its Destination, Up Up Tokyo Joshi

June 19, 2018

TOKYO JOSHI PRO “UP UP TOKYO JOSHI ~ALL UPPER KICK TOGETHER!~”, 27/06/2018
Shinjuku FACE

1. Continue To Challenge, FIGHTING GIRLS! Challenge Match: Rika Tatsumi Vs Raku
2. Continue To Challenge, FIGHTING GIRLS! Challenge Match: Shoko Nakajima Vs Hikari
3. Continue To Challenge, FIGHTING GIRLS! Challenge Match: Yuka Sakazaki Vs Hinano
4. Continue To Challenge, FIGHTING GIRLS! Challenge Match: Miyu Yamashita Vs Miu

A random draw held yesterday determined the matches. Miu had wanted a singles match with Miyu Yamashita so she is happy with the draw. A chance to wrestle the TOKYO Princess Champion will make up for her failing to qualify for the Tokyo Princess Cup. Yamashita doesn’t know what to expect from Miu. Her only focus is to defeat whoever is put in front of her. However Yamashita kind of sees Miu in the same position that she herself was in with Meiko Satomura last year. Yamashita obviously isn’t on Satomura’s level but the gap of experience here is kind of similar if on a smaller scale. Hinano says that whenever she fought Yuka Sakazaki in tag matches, she felt the atmosphere in the room change. She thinks Sakazaki is scarily fast and that is her strength. Shoko Nakajima is feeling nostalgic about this show because it reminds her of the early Tokyo Joshi Pro events that featured local idol performances inbetween the matches. She feels like she is just as much going to a music festival than she is going to a wrestling show. Hikari is currently the most experienced of the Up Up Girls (Pro Wrestling) after competing in the Princess Cup. She lost to Sakazaki but she is looking forward to wrestling the other member of the Miraclians one on one. Rika Tatsumi calls Raku the most beautiful looking girl in the Up Up Girls. She has a mysterious face that cannot be read. Tatsumi was also once a member of an idol group but was kicked out a month after their debut CD was launched. She thinks the Up Up Girls are in a better environment today than she was back then.

2. Tokyo Princess Cup – Semi Final: Yuu Vs Nodoka-oneesan
3. Tokyo Princess Cup – Final: X Vs X

GANBARE☆WRESTLING “TAIYO NO SEASON 2018”, 14/07/2018
Tokyo Seijo Hall

1. GanJo Spring No. 1!: HARUKAZE Vs Moeka Haruhi
2. Road To Independent World Jr!? Hitori Shiten Pro Wrestling Vs Silent Arm Cross: Keisuke Ishii & Chikara Vs Ayumu Honda & Kyu Mogami
3. This Is Ganbare☆Wrestling! ~Charisma Vs Revolutionary~: Ken Ohka Vs Yumehito Imanari

It’s been brewing for two months but the Imanari Revolution will collide with the heart and soul of Ganbare☆Wrestling himself in the main event. Yumehito Imanari launched his revolution to push himself up the card and loosen Ken Ohka’s monopoly of the main event spot in the process. It has led to Imanari winning more than usual and closing the distance while Ohka finds himself a little less relevant in his own promotion.

Keisuke Ishii already has a new challenger for the Independent World Jr. Heavyweight Title even if he doesn’t believe it. Ayumu Honda from K-DOJO came out at the last show to challenge him for a title shot. Ishii ignored the challenge until Honda attacked him. That somehow still didn’t get his message across but the title match will go ahead at some point anyway. Until then Ishii is teaming with Chikara to take on Honda and his fellow K-DOJO pal Kyu Mogami.

TOKYO JOSHI PRO “THE 5TH TOKYO PRINCESS CUP” Results

June 17, 2018

TOKYO JOSHI PRO “THE 5TH TOKYO PRINCESS CUP”, 17/06/2018
Tokyo Narimasu Act Hall
326 Fans – Super No Vacancy

1. Mizuki & Raku defeated Miu & Hinano when Mizuki pinned Hinano with the Diving Foot Stomp (8:22).
2. Maki Ito defeated Yuki Kamifuku with a DDT (10:21).
3. Reika Saiki defeated Yuki Aino with a Missile Dropkick (7:16).
4. Tokyo Princess Cup – Round 2: Yuka Sakazaki defeated Hikari with an Omoplata (9:58).
5. Tokyo Princess Cup – Round 2: Nodoka-oneesan defeated Miyu Yamashita with the Backflip (11:20).
6. Tokyo Princess Cup – Round 2: Yuu defeated Hyper Misao with the One Wing Twist (12:46).
7. Tokyo Princess Cup – Round 2: Rika Tatsumi defeated Shoko Nakajima with the Dragon Sleeper (15:31).

The Tokyo Princess Cup quarter-finals saw some new things from a few of the girls. In the main event Rika Tatsumi defeated Shoko Nakajima for the first time. She avoided the Northern Lights Suplex and caught Nakajima with a Backbreaker. From there Tatsumi locked in the Dragon Sleeper and fell back for leverage to get the victory. Nakajima’s tail was pulled off during the match. She knows it will grow again so she will look forward to the future.

Hyper Misao went through her bag of tricks against Yuu. She tried taping her to a wall, blinded her with spray and just plain old tried to wrestle her. In the end Yuu came out on top with a Cobra Twist variation of the Katahajime. Yuu calls the new move the One Wing Twist.

The big upset of the day saw Miyu Yamashita crash out of the tournament after she lost to Nodoka-oneesan! Nodoka took every kick Yamashita threw at her and won with the Backflip.

Yuka Sakazaki pulled out an Omoplata to beat Hikari. The last member of the Up Up Girls left in the tournament before this point regrets the result and hopes for a rematch at the Tokyo Joshi Pro/Up Up Girls show on 27th June.

The show ended with the semi-final draw. The two matches made were Yuka Sakazaki Vs Rika Tatsumi and Nodoka-oneesan Vs Yuu. The semi-finals and final will take place on 8th July. Sakazaki is upset that Tatsumi beat her tag partner today so she will show no mercy towards her. Tatsumi said her goal for this year is not to be caught up by fixed concepts and to move forward to be the leading wrestler in Tokyo Joshi this summer. The other semi-final is a BRAVE☆MATES confrontation. Nodoka would have preferred to fight Yuu in the final but she is still happy to get the match. Yuu thinks it will be a battle between two power fighters.

Yuki Kamifuku got a match with Maki Ito because she wanted to learn how to be an idol. Ito wasn’t interested until Kamifuku complimented her. They sang together until Ito got annoyed by Kamifuku’s mistakes and attacked her to start the match.

Shin-Kiba 1st RING

1. Mr. Maji Manji Battle: Makoto Oishi Vs Kota Umeda
2. KO-D Tag Team Titles: Daisuke Sekimoto & Kazusada Higuchi (c) Vs Tetsuya Endo & Mad Paulie

Kota Umeda has been one of the most featured wrestlers on “DDT LIVE! MAJI MANJI” since the first episode. However Makoto Oishi feels that he should be the star of the show. The two of them will fight over the claim. It’s a bigger deal for Oishi than Umeda though. Umeda has bigger fish to fry.

Kickboxer Tenshin Nasukawa will be in attendance so he can kick Ken Ohka’s ass. This is not supposed to be a wrestling match, it is literally going to be Nasukawa kicking Ohka up the ass.

4. Heaven Summit ~Itadaki~ – Round 2: Fuminori Abe Vs Yasu Urano
5. Heaven Summit ~Itadaki~ – Round 2: FUMA Vs Takumi Tsukamoto

The feud between Hercules Senga and the Best Stretchmen has driven Senga mad. So mad that he now wrestles in a banana suit and is called Banana Senga by the ring announcers. His first appearance as a banana saw him beat the Best Stretchmen in what was supposed to be the final match between them. However Best Stretchman V3 booked at least two more final matches between him and Senga this month. He wants to do more and more feud ending matches with Senga from now until I suppose the end of time.

TOKYO JOSHI PRO “THE 5TH TOKYO PRINCESS CUP” Results

June 9, 2018

TOKYO JOSHI PRO “THE 5TH TOKYO PRINCESS CUP”, 09/06/2018
Shin-Kiba 1st RING
302 Fans – Super No Vacancy

-. Tokyo Princess Cup – Round 1: Shoko Nakajima defeated Maho Kurone by Forfeit.
-. Tokyo Princess Cup – Round 1: Hikari defeated Marika Kobashi by Forfeit.
1. 2 Vs 3 Handicap Match: Shoko Nakajima & Hyper Misao defeated Hikari, Miu & Hinano when Misao pinned Hinano with a Rope Assisted Pin (7:56).
2. Saki-sama defeated Yuki Aino with the Versailles Foot Choke (6:11).
3. Reika Saiki defeated Yuki Kamifuku with the Jackhammer (6:10).
4. Yuu & Nodoka-oneesan defeated Miyu Yamashita & Raku when Yuu submitted Raku with the Katahajime (11:16).
5. Tokyo Princess Cup – Round 1: Rika Tatsumi defeated Azusa Christie with the Dragon Sleeper (10:23).
6. Tokyo Princess Cup – Round 1: Yuka Sakazaki defeated Mizuki with the Magical Magical Girl Splash (18:10).

Yuka Sakazaki used the Merry Go Round to position Mizuki for the Magical Magical Girl Splash. The Merry Go Round is a move used by Sakazaki’s twin sister Mil Clown. Sakazaki herself never used the move before today. After the main event Sakazaki said she does not want to lose this summer. She acknowledged that there are several girls missing from today’s show. That’s not good but she knows none of them wanted to miss it because everybody in Tokyo Joshi Pro fights together.

Rika Tatsumi wants to beat Shoko Nakajima in the next round for Maho Kurone. Nakajima and Kurone were supposed to have their match today before Kurone pulled out of the tournament. Tatsumi will pass on any good news from Kurone’s grave where the zombie is currently resting as soon as she hears from her.

Due to their current run of bad luck, Azusa Christie thinks NEO Biishiki-gun has become cursed somehow. She wants an investigation team to come in and er… investigate. Maybe Yuki Kamifuku is to blame.

Kamifuku tried to make Reika Saiki tired by challenging her to do squats. Saiki was able to do ten of them with Kamifuku getting a piggy back from her. Kamifuku tried to roll her into a pin afterwards but Saiki kicked out and won the match with the Jackhammer.

During the week Hyper Misao joined Makoto Oishi and Kamifuku to create a new unofficial section of the Up Up Girls called Up Up Girls (Fake). Today Misao continues to act like she is part of the group. She told everyone that she is the youngest member of the group at 17 years old and their next song will be called “Upper Hero”. She started to dance and was about to sing when Hikari, Miu & Hinano all kicked her down. The Up Up Girls did well with the 3-on-2 advantage until Misao blinded the referee and put her foot on the ropes while pinning Hinano. When the ref regained his sight he didn’t notice Misao’s use of the ropes and counted the pin.

The complete list of 2nd Round matches are Reika Saiki Vs Hyper Misao, Miyu Yamashita Vs Nodoka-oneesan, Rika Tatsumi Vs Shoko Nakajima and Yuka Sakazaki Vs Hikari. They will all take place on 17th June in Tokyo Narimasu Act Hall.

6. Tokyo Princess Cup – Round 1G: Yuka Sakazaki Vs Mizuki

Marika Kobashi suffered a partially dislocated left shoulder in training last week and is unable to wrestle for the next two months. Unfortunately this means she forfeits her match Tokyo Princess Cup match. Maho Kurone also forfeits her 1st Round match. That means Shoko Nakajima and Hikari are both getting byes to the 2nd Round.

5. HARASHIMA, KUDO & Masahiro Takanashi Vs Daisuke Sasaki, Soma Takao & Tetsuya Endo
6. Shigehiro Irie & Mizuki Watase Vs Kazusada Higuchi & Kouki Iwasaki
7. A Match To Verify What To Do In Order To Keep Ken Ohka From Crying Against Tenshin Nasukawa: Danshoku Dieno & Ken Ohka Vs Mike Bailey & Tanomusaku Toba

On this week’s episode of “DDT LIVE! MAJI MANJI”, Ken Ohka learned he will have to face kickboxing protege Tenshin Nasukawa later this month. Ohka is scared of what will happen to him when he faces the undefeated kickboxer. Danshoku Dieno is coming up with ideas to motivate Ohka and help him handle his fear. Maybe a match against two kick heavy wrestlers isn’t the brightest idea.

Gota Ihashi has been training to get on Riki Choshu’s next event. There are two problems to this. 1) Choshu wants nothing to do with him and 2) some of the DDT wrestlers are getting annoyed by Ihashi’s behaviour and now want to kick his ass. Yukio Sakaguchi mainly.

DDT “ROAD TO RYOGOKU 2018 ~DRAMATIC DREAM TOKASAN~”, 16/06/2018

Matsuyama City Community Center Planning Exhibition Hall

1. Shigehiro Irie & Mizuki Watase Vs Kota Umeda & Yuki Iino
2. Konosuke Takeshita Vs Mike Bailey
3. Ryutaro Watanabe Debut Match: Tetsuya Endo Vs Ryutaro Watanbe
4. If You Wrestle, Do Something Like This! Matsuyama Specialty 6-Man Tag Match: HARASHIMA, Yukio Sakaguchi & Masahiro Takanashi Vs Daisuke Sasaki, Soma Takao & Mad Paulie

DDT and Big Japan are running shows back to back in the same venue that day. However I don’t think there will be cross-promotional matches on either show.

Ryutaro Watanabe was a DDT trainee from 2012 who was never able to wrestle because of two dislocated shoulder injuries. Now he returns years later asking Sanshiro Takagi if he could finally debut and do so in front of his hometown. Takagi accepted and Watanabe will wrestle against Tetsuya Endo. Endo was chosen because his debut in 2012 is the closest to the time Watanabe was in training.

GANBARE☆WRESTLING “PARADISE TRAIN 2018”, 17/06/2018

5. Independent World Jr. Heavyweight Title: Keisuke Ishii (c) Vs Shuichiro Katsumura

Last year Mineo Fujita created a promotion called Chinko Pro Wrestling and held shows every month or two until a dick injury took him out of action. Fujita blamed the injury on accumulated damage to his dick from wrestling on those shows so this July he is putting the company on hiatus until his dick has fully recovered. Tominaga wants to wrestle Fujita on behalf of Ganbare☆Wrestling to prove that Ganpro is better than Chinko Pro. This impressed Ken Ohka enough to take Tominaga out of his already booked tag match and put him against Fujita one on one.

Aaron Anders is from Compound Pro Wrestling in Oklahoma, USA. He takes Tominaga’s original spot in the opening tag team match.

7. Tokyo Princess Cup – Round 1: Miyu Yamashita defeated Maki Ito with the Attitude Adjustment (12:01).
8. Tokyo Princess Cup – Round 1: Yuu defeated Reika Saiki with the Last Ride (11:55).

The winners of the two previous Tokyo Princess Cups faced off in the main event. Yuu blocked the Jackhammer and sent Reika Saiki into the corner with the John Yuu dropkick. She then finished her off with the Last Ride to advance. Yuu said it’s been a long time since she last won a main event match so she is really happy today! She can feel her own momentum returning and Tokyo Joshi Pro itself is getting bigger because of all the hard work everyone is doing. Yuu wants to win the tournament so Tokyo Joshi can grow more by using her kind of pro wrestling.

Miyu Yamashita and Nodoka-oneesan also advanced with wins over Maki Ito and Yuna Manase respectively. Yamashita noted that Ito has improved since their last match against each other. Ito was more driven and Yamashita admits she had difficulty escaping from Ito’s Inverted Crab Hold. Ito is upset over the defeat but she assures everyone she will never break because she will not lose forever. Nodoka is happy to win her match and wants to win the next one because she is greedy.

Hyper Misao came up with several traps to use against Saki-sama. She held something wrapped up in cloth and claimed it was Saki-sama’s possessions. Misao asked Saki-sama to forfeit the match if she wanted her stuff back. Saki-sama didn’t fall for it. Misao then went over to the announce table and dressed Sayuri Namba with Misao’s old mask and jacket to trick Saki-sama into thinking Namba was Misao. That also didn’t work. Saki-sama chased Misao up a nearby staircase and Misao taped Saki-sama’s hands to the railings to get her counted out. Saki-sama escaped by slipping her hands out of her gloves and made it back to the ring in time. Misao grabbed a chair but she got into a back and forth moment with the referee over it. That ended when Saki-sama hit the ref with a Big Boot by mistake. Misao then taped Saki-sama’s arms and feet together. Azusa Christie came in with scissors and cut Saki-sama free but Misao took out a spray can and blinded both girls with it. She then woke the ref up, unmasked herself and gave the mask and the spray can to Saki-sama. When the ref regained his bearings he saw that Misao was huddled over unmasked, Saki-sama was holding both the mask and a spray can and Christie was armed with a pair of scissors. He had no choice but to disqualify Saki-sama and award the match to Misao!

The 2nd Round matches made today are Yuu Vs Hyper Misao and Miyu Yamashita Vs Nodoka-oneesan. Yuu said she envied Misao for getting to wrestle Jun Kasai in a Hardcore Match. Misao gets to wrestle in matches that nobody else in Toyko Joshi get to do. so she is experienced in ways that Yuu is not. Yamashita wonders if Nodoka has progressed like Ito has. Yamashita is confident that her own power is enough to beat Nodoka regardless.

Yuki Kamifuku and Azusa Chrisite quizzed each other over who knew Saki-sama better during their match. Christie eventually had enough of Kamifuku’s antics and beat her with the Christie Agape.

Hikari won the Up Up Girls Take A Chance match so she qualifies for the Princess Cup. She is expected to face Marika Kobashi in her 1st Round match on 9th June. Speaking of Kobashi, she was pulled from today’s show because of a left shoulder injury she suffered during training yesterday. She is hoping to recover in time for her Princess Cup match next week.

Because of Kobashi’s injury and Maho Kurone’s absence, the scheduled 6-Woman Tag for Match #6 was turned into a regular tag match.
