6. Tokyo Princess Cup – Final: Reika Saiki defeated Yuka Sakazaki with the Jackhammer (10:47).

Reika Saiki is the winner of this year’s Tokyo Princess Cup! The Muscle Idol even went over the current TOKYO Princess Of Princess Champion to do it. Yuka Sakazaki’s winning streak since becoming the champion ended here when Saiki fought through the pain of a Brainbuster to get back up and hit a Shining Wizard. One Jackhammer later and Saiki was the winner. Saiki said that one year ago she wasn’t in the tournament so she never thought she would progress all the way this year. Every time she wrestles she had more fun but she also becomes stronger. To get even stronger she’ll need to win the TOKYO Princess Title. Saiki then threw out the challenge to Sakazaki for a title match at Korakuen Hall on 26th August. Sakazaki refused and said she doesn’t want the match but she eventually agreed to it.

In the earlier semi-finals, Saiki ended Syoko Nakajima’s streak of reaching the final of every Princess tournament. No matter how many times Nakajima avoided the Jackhammer, Saiki continued attempting the move knowing that it would win the match for her. She was right. Nakajima was satisfied with her own performance despite losing. She fought her best and even though she is now further away from getting her title match, she realises how fun it is to wrestle for Tokyo Joshi Pro. Today was a good start of the summer for her.

Mizuki knew she was in for a tough challenge against Sakazaki but she was still confident in her abilities to win. She even brought a second costume to wear in the final. But Sakazaki had her Cutie Special scouted and countered it into the Osaekomi Backslide for the three count. Mizuki learned that concentrating on only one match plan was the reason for her defeat. She now wants to study different ideas she can learn from different places.

Saki-nami was in a bad mood because she has not fully recovered from her illness yet. She blamed the rest of Tokyo Joshi for this “curse” that’s stopping her from being her usual perfect self. So while she is out of action her dark and mysterious doctor Yukio Saint Laurent will take her place in matches. Laurent showed off his medical knowledge by focusing on moves involving joint manipulation. He also attempted to jab Rika Tatsumi and Maho Kurone with a syringe. Tatsumi fought him off but was knocked over when Martha pushed the referee into her. Saki-nami then came in and hit a Big Boot to both Tatsumi and Kurone. Laurent then put Tatsumi in a Straightjacket Choke called the Euthanasia for the submission victory. Tatsumi complained about Biishiki-gun always cheating so now’s the time for her coach to come in and even the numbers. Shiro Koshinaka then appeared! He took out Laurent and Martha with the Hip Attack. Saki-nami almost took the move too but she escaped the ring. She wanted to know whose dirty ass father was this? Koshinaka told her he is teaming with the Dragon Bombers to fight NEO Biishiki-gun at Korakuen!

The grudge match between Maki Ito and Azusa Takigawa ended in another double countout. The two fought over to the crowd where Takigawa tried to tie Ito’s arm to a railing with the microphone cord. It didn’t work. A pissed off Ito responded with a Headbutt and a DDT on the floor. Ito tried to crawl back to the ring but couldn’t make it in time. Ito demanded Tetsuya Koda to restart the match. Koda said he would like to but they had to go on with the show. Instead another rematch will take place at the 26/8 Korakuen show. Both Ito and Takigawa hit Koda over the decision. Sanshiro Takagi then came out with an idea. The rematch will be an Idol Lumberjack Match with himself as the referee! However neither LinQ or Aime will be at the show so it is up to Ito and Takigawa to go out and search for other idol groups to participate as the lumberjacks. Pro, underground or local, any level of idol is open to apply.

The six women in the Beer Garden Special all wrestled while wearing floating pool rings around their waists. Miyu Yamashita had trouble fighting off Marika Kobashi for most of the match. It wasn’t enough that earlier in the show Cherry tried to sneak an ambush pin on her during the opening introductions. She also had Kobashi to defend herself against. Nodoka-oneesan used her floating ring as a shield to protect her from Nonoko’s Boin-maker. She then pinned her with a School Boy. After the match bad tension grew between Nonoko and Yuna Manase. The two collided chest to chest. Yamashita stepped in to try and keep them apart but wound up getting smothered unconscious. Kobashi then pinned Yamashita to win the Iron Man Title! Kobashi’s celebration was cut short when Cherry returned and successfully pinned her to become champion. Cherry said she won the title fair and square. Now she will be the defending champion for the Tokyo Joshi Battle Royal at “RYOGOKU PETER PAN 2017”.

The next trainee to debut in Tokyo Joshi introduced herself at the start of the show. Yuki Kamifuku is 174cm high, studied in Toyo University and is currently a gravure model. She has no prior experience with club activities and only began training this spring. She will debut at the Korakuen show.

Tweets relating to Tokyo Joshi will now use the hashtag #TJPW in an attempt to reach out to an international audience. The unexpected announcement was booed by the crowd.

Partial Fighting Beer Garden 2017 Schedule

July 25, 2017

It’s that time of year again when DDT spends a week during the summer drinking itself stupid and inviting everyone along to come see the results. Nine different shows in seven days will take place in Shinjuku FACE with plenty of beer being served in the meantime. Every show has a different flavour with many being produced by the wrestlers themselves. So expect to see some ideas that are different or unusual for even regular DDT events. This year the published cards have a lot of gaps in them so some surprises may be in store.

TOKYO JOSHI PRO “FIGHTING BEER GARDEN 2017 ~THE 4TH TOKYO PRINCESS CUP FINAL ROUND~”, 30/07/2017
Shinjuku FACE

1. Tokyo Princess Cup – Semi Final: Syoko Nakajima Vs Reika Saiki

6. Tokyo Princess Cup – Final: X Vs X

The week begins with a double header held by Tokyo Joshi Pro and DDT. Tokyo Joshi kicks it off with the final rounds of the Tokyo Princess Cup. Syoko Nakajima is aiming to reach the final again for the fourth year in a row. Yuka Sakazaki has been unbeatable since she became the TOKYO Princess Of Princess Champion. Reika Saiki and Mizuki are both hoping to win the tournament in their first go.

We get to see the regenerated NEO Biishiki-gun back in the ring. There’s also risk of some Iron Man Heavymetalweight Title shenanigans with Maho Kurone in the house.

DDT “FIGHTING BEER GARDEN 2017 ~DDT~”, 30/07/2017
Shinjuku FACE

1. Shigehiro Irie Vs Rekka
2. Shuten-dōji Vs NωA!: KUDO & Yukio Sakaguchi Vs Makoto Oishi & Shunma Katsumata

6. Konosuke Takeshita, Akito & Diego Vs Daisuke Sasaki, Tetsuya Endo & Mad Paulie

DDT’s first show of the series is pretty straight forward. Konosuke Takeshita and Tetsuya Endo get to scramble before their big Sumo Hall main event. Kazuki Hirata returns to DDT after being deported back in April. Oh, and Antonio Honda gets to play with bras again.

The field of candidates for this year’s Dramatic General Election will be announced during this show.

DDT “FIGHTING BEER GARDEN 2017 ~SMILE SQUASH DAY~”, 31/07/2017

DDT “FIGHTING BEER GARDEN 2017 ~DAMNATION DAY~”, 01/08/2017
Shinjuku FACE

1. Bull Rope Tag Match: Yuko Miyamoto & Nobuhiro Shimatani Vs Dave Crist & Shigehiro Irie
2. Tetsuya Endo Vs X
3. Round System Drinking & Driving Match: Daisuke Sasaki Vs Masahiro Takanashi
4. Daisuke Sasaki, Shuji Ishikawa & Mad Paulie Vs Antonio Honda, Rocky Kawamura & Tanomusaku Toba

Out of all the shows that risk drinking the bar dry, this is amongst the most likely. Daisuke Sasaki and Masahiro Takanashi have a rematch from last year where they got to drink inbetween very short rounds. They both got so drunk neither could continue so it was declared a draw. Adding Rocky Kawamura and Tanomusaku Toba to the main event provides the punch drunk effect that usually shows up on one of these events.

Dave Crist makes his DDT debut here teaming with his buddy Shigehiro Irie.

4. Play Sandman: Dave Crist Vs Danshoku Dino Vs X

An open invitation is being sent out for wrestlers to Enter Sandman. Gender, nationality and skill level is not a problem. Danshoku Dino & Super Sasadango Machine want to give everyone a chance to have a summer memory. Hopefully music licensing won’t be a problem on DDT UNIVERSE. Who am I kidding?

Super Sasadango Machine Vs Ken Ohka is a match 15 years in the making apparently.

What the heck? New Beijing is back in Japan! The Chinese promotion has been pretty quiet for the last few years. Last I heard the owner was murdered by Piccolo Daimao but that was years ago.

It’s been kind of difficult to set up because every year the story teller keeps dying on the way to the venue but shows up anyway!

5. DDT Extreme Title – Ladder Match: Daisuke Sasaki (c) Vs Joey Ryan
6. KO-D Tag Team Titles: Shigehiro Irie & Kazusada Higuchi (c) Vs Shuji Ishikawa & Mad Paulie
7. KO-D Openweight Title: Konosuke Takeshita (c) Vs Keisuke Ishii
*Keisuke Ishii will cash in his Right To Challenge Anytime, Anywhere Contract.

The key to the KO-D Openweight Title match will be whether or not Keisuke Ishii will be able to use the Final Cut. He’s been learning how to use the move by Kaz Hayashi for the last month but has not used it in any DDT matches since then. Ishii does not want his generation to be overtaken by Konosuke Takeshita’s generation and he thinks he is the last obstacle to prevent that from happening. Takeshita said that his success has not come from luck alone but he earned it with his power too.

Takeshita gave an update over the events that happened at the end of “DRAMATIC DREAMS! VOL. 4” in Osaka on Sunday. Naomi Yoshimura finally succeeded in embarrassing him by stealing his mother, Keiko Takeshita! He does not know if she returned home that night. All he got was a LINE message from her saying she was so excited by the crowd cheering her name that she couldn’t sleep. Amon Tsurumi joked that Ishii should steal Takeshita’s father as part of his own mind games.

Drastic measures are being taken to settle the score between Daisuke Sasaki and Joey Ryan. The two were both knocked out at the end of their Last Man Standing Double Title Match so no championship changes took place. Ryan has since lost the Iron Man Heavymetalweight Title but he is still determined to beat Sasaki for the DDT Extreme Title. Sasaki decided the rematch at Korakuen Hall will be a Ladder Match! There is one slight problem. Normally in Ladder Matches the prize is hung high above the ring. DDT has yet to get permission from Korakuen Hall management to hang a cable from the ceiling to hold the title belt. Consultation is currently taking place between the two parties so there may not be any problems by the time the match takes place.

Ryan intends win the Extreme Title and bring it back with him to America just like he did with the Iron Man Title. Sasaki would prefer for Laura James to be the prize they have to grab instead of the Extreme Title belt. He thinks she weighs lighter than the belt so it should be possible. As part of his training for the match, Sasaki says he has been watching a porno called “Monster Cock” every day. During a photo shoot where Sasaki and Ryan posed with the ladder, Sasaki stuck his arm through the ladder and asked Ryan for a handshake. Ryan shook his hand but then tried to pull it onto his crotch. The ladder prevented Sasaki’s hand from reaching that far. Sasaki then grabbed the ladder and thrusted it at Ryan but it was blocked by his crotch. Ryan overpowered the ladder and threw Sasaki across the room in the process.

Tetsuya Endo has plans to open up a women’s fan club for Mad Paulie called the Paulie Joshi. This show is supposedly going to be the launch day of the club.

If T2Hide lose their match, both Hirata Collection A.T. and Gorgeous Matsuno will be deported from Japan.

TOKYO JOSHI PRO “FIGHTING BEER GARDEN 2017 ~THE 4TH TOKYO PRINCESS CUP FINAL ROUND~”, 30/07/2017
Shinjuku FACE

1. Tokyo Princess Cup – Semi Final: Syoko Nakajima Vs Reika Saiki
2. Tokyo Princess Cup – Semi Final: Yuka Sakazaki Vs Mizuki
3. Fire Fighting Dollars Vs 30’s Underground Idol Final Battle!: Maki Ito Vs Azusa Takigawa

5. Beer Garden Special 6-Woman Tag Match: Miyu Yamashita, Nonoko & Yuna Manase Vs Yuu, Nodoka-oneesan & Marika Kobashi
6. Tokyo Princess Cup – Final: X Vs X

The Tokyo Princess Cup final four are Syoko Nakajima, Reika Saiki, Yuka Sakazaki and Mizuki. Nakajima is the only one of the four to have reached the semi-finals in previous tournaments. Her next opponent Saiki is looking to avenge her loss to her from last month. Mizuki is the wild card of the tournament. She’s been undefeated in singles matches since her arrival in Toyko Joshi Pro in April. Sakazaki isn’t worried though. Her confidence is through the roof and she is spending her time wondering how to play with her cute new opponent.

Saki-nami is back in Tokyo Joshi thanks to her new mysterious doctor Yukio Saint Laurent. However Saki is not back in ring shape yet after her recovery from illness so Yukio-san will take her place in the ring for NEO Biishiki-gun’s return match. Rika Tatsumi is angry that the unit was allowed back in to Tokyo Joshi after they were forced to split up. Tetsuya Koda explained to her that SIN Biishiki-gun is gone but NEO Biishiki-gun is a brand new unit. Martha the maid has been proven to be a young girl so she’s okay to wrestle. Yukio-san is being allowed to wrestle because Tatsumi wants to beat him up.

Maho Kurone is already fighting off challengers for the Iron Man Heavymetalweight Title. Yuka Sakazaki tried to pin her during the press conference but Kurone escaped with the belt. Whenever Kurone is not in public she swallows the belt and stores it in her stomach for safety. See, being a zombie has its perks.

The Tokyo Princess Cup 2nd Round saw one big elimination. Last year’s winner is out! Yuu faced Reika Saiki in a rematch from their TOKYO Princess Of Princess Title bout from March. This time Saiki avoided the Last Ride and gave Yuu the Jackhammer to avenge her loss. Elsewhere in the tournament, Yuka Sakazaki continues to prove her championship is powering up her abilities with a win over Rika Tatsumi. Sakazaki praised Tatsumi for evolving because she found her difficult to figure out in the match. Syoko Nakajima defeated Maki Ito on her journey to reach the final for the fourth time in a row. Ito cried over the result. She got even more angry when she found out her Ito Respect Army partner Mizuki beat Azusa Takigawa.

The show ended with the draw to determine the semi-final matches. The two matches are Mizuki Vs Sakazaki and Saiki Vs Nakajima. Although Sakazaki is still friendly to the other girls she warned them that they are still her enemies in the tournament.

The show began with a surprise appeared of Saki-nami. Everybody thought SIN Biishiki-gun was disbanded after Saki fell ill and fled to France to recover. Saki revealed that the group is now NEO Biishiki-gun and she received permission from Tetsuya Koda to return to Tokyo Joshi Pro. The unit consists of herself, Martha the maid and a never before seen dark and dashing figure with a scarred face. Saki introduced him as Yukio Saint Laurent, or Yukio-san for short. He is Saki’s doctor and the man who cured her of her illness. NEO Biishiki-gun will have their first match on the next Tokyo Joshi show.

When the 6-Woman Tag match was over, Maho Kurone spotted Joey Ryan in the room. When she noticed he had the Iron Man Heavymetalweight Title with him she began to chase him around ringside. She almost won the title with a School Boy but Ryan kicked out and escaped.

Takgiawa challenged Ito to a match to end their feud on 30th July. Ito said 30th July will be the death of Takigawa!

6. Tokyo Princess Cup – Round 1: Yuka Sakazaki defeated Miyu Yamashita with the Magical Girl Splash (17:15).

Round 1 of the Tokyo Princess Cup is in the books. Yuka Sakazaki continues her run of success after winning the TOKYO Princess Of Princess Title by knocking Miyu Yamashita out of the tournament. This is the first time Sakazaki has ever beaten Yamashita in a singles match.

Rika Tatsumi has had poor luck in this tournament before today. She missed the first two instalments due to injury then was eliminated in the 1st Round last year. This time however she advanced with a win over Yuna Manase. Tatsumi avoided the Kakato Drop and countered it with a Dragon Screw, then hit a Hip Attack for the win. Tatsumi will face Sakazaki in the next round.

Maho Kurone tried to intimidate Syoko Nakajima before their match by shouting “I love pain!” at her. The Northern Lights Suplex didn’t work so Nakajima busted out a Diving Senton to put the zombie away. Nakajima used the move before from the 2nd rope but today was the first time she did it off the top. She now has Itoh Maki as her next round opponent.

In an upset, Mizuki pinned Nonoko with the Cutie Special after Nonoko missed a Splash. Mizuki faces Azusa Takigawa in Round 2.

In the battle between bodybuilding and Ping Pong dance exercises, bodybuilding won. Reika Saiki pinned Nodoka-oneesan with the Jackhammer, a move she intends to use on Yuu in the next round!

Azusa Takigawa and Itoh Maki put their idol related differences aside to try and beat Yuu. The plan failed when Yuu grabbed both of them by the legs and applied a double Achilles Tendon Lock. Takigawa yelled at Itoh to give up first but then she went and tapped out instead. After the match Itoh took the microphone and talked about her challenge to the actresses from the Tofu Pro Wrestling TV show. She is still waiting for an answer. Now she wants to get a response from Yasushi Akimoto, the music producer behind AKB48. She knows she is disliked by other idols and that is the reason why she’s been exiled from LinQ. But in the long run, Itoh will revolutionise both the idol world and the pro wrestling world!

Solo Darling will debut for Tokyo Joshi Pro on the 26th August Korakuen Hall show.
