Shin-Kiba 1st RING

1. TOKYO Princess Tag Team Titles: Yuka Sakazaki & Mizuki (c) Vs Hikari & Miu

The two most advanced members of the Up Up Girls are next to step up to the Magical Sugar Rabbits. Hikari & Miu even struck the first blow this past weekend by eliminating both Yuka Sakazaki & Mizuki from the Rumble match.

DDT Dramatic General Election Ranking In Parentheses

0. Under Match: Mizuki Watase (#21) & Yuki Ueno (#24) Vs Gota Ihashi (#22) & Makoto Oishi (#23)

7. DDT Special Four Great Singles Match: Akito (#2) Vs Danshoku Dieno (#7)
8. KO-D Openweight Title ~ DDT Special Four Great Singles Match: Daisuke Sasaki (#5) (c) Vs Masahiro Takanashi (#1)

This is the grand result of the Dramatic General Election. We have Masahiro Takanashi getting the KO-D Openweight Title shot against the new champion Daisuke Sasaki for being the most popular wrestler in DDT. Akito faces the previous champion Danshoku Dieno who may still be suffering from drastic memory loss when the match takes place. Maki Ito defends the Iron Man Heavymetalweight Title against the man who was screwed out of the title last July Konosuke Takeshita. MAO gets to continue his crazy path by taking on one of the craziest of them all Jun Kasai. DISASTER BOX are the latest force in DDT to step up to STRONG HEARTS when HARASHIMA & Kazuki Hirata face CIMA & El Lindaman. Maybe Hirata’s persona can distract CIMA when they fight each other. Maybe bring back some awkward past acquaintances.

Friends become rivals when they’re put in the main event against each other. Maki Ito won a Rumble match to earn the next TOKYO Princess Title shot at Korakuen Hall. If she somehow still has the Iron Man Title by the time the show takes place then we’ll be in for a double title match!

Veda Scott will be on the show. She will be touring with Tokyo Joshi Pro for all of December and also the first half of January.

*V1 for Maki Ito.

What a day it was for Maki Ito! Earlier in the show she lost her Iron Man Heavymetalweight Title to Shoko Nakajima after their tag match. However when they faced off again the the main event Rumble, Ito countered the Northern Lights Suplex into a Cradle to eliminate Nakajima and regain the title. Ito then pinned Yuki Kamifuku with the Flying Big Head to win the match and earn the TOKYO Princess Title shot on 4th January! Ito and Miyu Yamashita stood opposite from each other in the ring after the main event. Yamashita is excited to finally defend the title against Ito. However, Ito immediately set the mood by saying the match isn’t going to be for fun. Yamashita’s time is over, the next era of Tokyo Joshi Pro belongs to Ito!

Yuu told the fans about her plan to leave Tokyo Joshi and become a freelancer. She apologised for delaying the news because she didn’t want to overshadow Azusa Takigawa’s graduation last month. Yuu thinks she made a positive decision and she thanks everyone for supporting her.

Hikari stopped the Magical Sugar Rabbits from leaving the ring after Match #4. She told them that while the up Up Girls (Pro Wrestling) have only been wrestling for less than a year, they’ve been rapidly progressing. Hikari wants to raise the unit’s position on the roster before the new set of trainees debut so she and Miu asked for a TOKYO Princess Tag Team Titles shot. The champions weren’t sure about the challengers but they accepted the request. The title match takes place on 17th November. Later in the Rumble, Hikari & Miu sent a message to Sakazaki & Mizuki by eliminating the both of them from the match.

Mina Shirakawa wanted to win her first match in Tokyo Joshi so she could immediately make an impact. Instead she quickly found out how much of a struggle it was just to avoid getting pinned. Shoko Nakajima pinned her with the Northern Lights Suplex to start Shirakawa’s run with a loss. Nakajima then snuck in a School Boy on Maki Ito on the entrance ramp to win the Iron Man Title.

Hyper Misao doesn’t understand why there are two girls named Yuki on the Tokyo Joshi roster. She proposed the creation of the YUKI Of YUKI Championship to distinguish the two. Misao also wanted the loser of the 3 Way Match be renamed either Hyper Aino or Hyper Kamifuku depending on who got pinned. Yuki Kamifuku gave Yuki Aino the Fame Asser but Misao got in and pinned Kamifuku with a rope assisted School Boy. Her stipulations didn’t stand afterwards.

Rika Tatsumi gave a live performance of her entrance song after intermission.

Veda Scott will be returning to Tokyo Joshi on 1st December. She will be wrestling on Tokyo Joshi shows up until 13th January.

A Royal Rumble style match will determine who will challenge for the TOKYO Princess Title at Korakuen Hall on 4th January.

October 14, 2018

TOKYO JOSHI PRO “DESERT HAWK 2018”, 14/10/2018
Fukuoka Oki Gakuen Dome
384 Fans – No Vacancy

1. Yuna Manase defeated Raku with the Neck Screw Hold (5:40).
2. 3 Way Match: Hyper Misao defeated Yuki Kamifuku and Hinano when Misao pinned Hinano with the HiPami Returns (7:56).
3. Yuka Sakazaki defeated Miu with the Magical Magical Girl Splash (12:36).
4. Nodoka Tenma & Yuki Aino defeated Azusa Takigawa & Hikari when Tenma pinned Takigawa with the Killswitch (13:05).
5. Shoko Nakajima & Yuu defeated Maki Ito & Mizuki when Nakajima pinned Ito with a Cradle (12:05).
6. TOKYO Princess Of Princess Title: Miyu Yamashita (c) defeated Priscilla Kelly with the Crash Rabbit Heat (11:28).
*V6 for Miyu Yamashita.

After their last few matches on this tour, Miyu Yamashita finally has Priscilla Kelly figured out. However this time Kelly did not use any of her mind games like licking her opponent. She doesn’t do that when competing in important matches. Kelly again found herself on the top rope after blocking a Superplex but this time she wasn’t able to do her Osteoporosis finisher. Yamashita dropped Kelly with the Attitude Adjustment and wore her down with various Head Kicks until winning with the Crash Rabbit Heat. Yamashita celebrated her first match in Fukuoka in four years. She could not be happier to return as the defending TOKYO Princess Champion and with Priscilla Kelly as her opponent. She also got to wrestle in front of her mother today. The pressure she had today felt amazing and she hopes to return to Fukuoka every year from now on.

The show began with Maki Ito reuniting with LinQ for a musical performance. She said it’s ironic to see the group she was fired from cheer for her. Although she lost again today she gave words of encouragement to the crowd. You can achieve one goal no matter what it is whether it is doing 30 sit-ups or getting to Tokyo University.

Knowing that many people were seeing Tokyo Joshi Pro for the first time today, Hyper Misao wanted to show how powerful a hero she is. So she encouraged Yuki Kamifuku and Hinano to fight 2-on-1 against her. The pair eventually fell apart and started fighting each other. That allowed Misao to pick her moment and pin Hinano with the HiPami Returns after Kamifuku was knocked out of the ring.

6. KO-D Openweight Title: Danshoku Dieno (c) Vs Meiko Satomura
*Meiko Satomura will cash in her Right To Challenge Anytime, Anywhere Gauntlet.

Danshoku Dieno is in rough shape going into tomorrow’s KO-D Openweight Title match. On Sunday’s show, Dieno revealed he wouldn’t endorse a match between himself and Shigehiro Irie because he secretly quit as the DDT Producer. Irie then damaged Dieno’s already injured right shoulder with an Inverted Armbreaker. So now Dieno has to defend his title against Meiko Satomura with a dodgy shoulder. Irie’s attack was out of anger of being tricked but it also inadvertently works in his favour because Satomura has said she would give him a title match if she becomes the champion. With that exception, tomorrow is currently the last scheduled KO-D Title defence before Sumo Hall in October unless the other Right To Challenge Gauntlet makes its way back to Japan. Saying who has it now would spoil a whole bunch of stuff elsewhere so would that be fair game for something that’s meant to be swept under the rug by DDT’s storyline anyway?

6. TOKYO Princess Tag Team Titles: Yuka Sakazaki & Mizuki defeated Reika Saiki & Maki Ito when Mizuki pinned Ito with the Cutie Special (15:59).
*The Magical Sugar Rabbits become the 4th TOKYO Princess Tag Team Champions!
7. TOKYO Princess Of Princess Title: Miyu Yamashita (c) defeated Yuu with the Crash Rabbit Heat (17:09).
*V5 for Miyu Yamashita.

No amount of chops can stop Miyu Yamashita! At first Yuu had an answer for Yamashita by blocking the Crash Rabbit Heat, hitting plenty of chops at her opponent’s chest and tossing the champion over with a Judo Throw. But Yamashita escaped from the Last Ride and wore down Yuu with many different kicks. Yuu blocked a Buzzsaw Kick but Yamashita tricked her with a feint so she could hit a Backspin Kick right on the button. From there Yamashita was able to hit the Crash Rabbit Heat to earn a 5th successful defence of the TOKYO Princess Title.

The result was something Yamashita wanted to achieve for a long time. When she was the first Princess Champion, she lost the belt to Yuu in Korakuen Hall. That stuck with her until today when she was able to avenge the loss in the same building. Yamashita said she will continue to raise Tokyo Joshi Pro and will defend the title against anyone who challenges her. Priscilla Kelly came out and with Yuki Kamifuku translating for her to mixed results, congratulated the champion for a great match and challenged her to a title match. Yamashita accepted and said she wants the match on 14th October in Fukuoka, her hometown. They shook hands until Kelly licked Yamashita up the arm and left the ring.

An emotional end to the TOKYO Princess Tag Team Titles match saw Mizuki pin Maki Ito but not before Ito put everything into trying to win and collapsing in the process. Ito even did her own Diving Foot Stomp to her now possibly former Ito Respect Army member. Things look bleak for the Magical Sugar Rabbits when Ito & Reika Saiki put them both in Crab Holds in the centre of the ring. Yuka Sakazaki & Mizuki persevered be grabbing each other by the hand and crawling together towards the ropes. Ito missed a Diving Big Head which allowed Sakazaki to hit the Magical Girl Splash and Mizuki to follow it up with her Diving Foot Stomp. Ito eventually got up looking to trade blows with Mizuki but she collapsed from exhaustion. She was still able to kick out of a pin but she was done when she ran into the Cutie Special. After the match Ito had a staredown with Mizuki and left the ring so Mizuki could celebrate her first championship win in Tokyo Joshi with Sakazaki.

Riho bested Shoko Nakajima in the battle between the 619s. Nakajima got a nearfall with the Northern Lights Suplex but missed the Diving Senton. Riho capitalised by hitting the Somato to grab the victory.

Azusa Takigawa’s final match at Korakuen Hall was also Saki Akai’s first Tokyo Joshi match as herself in the same venue. Takigawa tried to motivate herself when she was in a troubled spot by telling everyone she cannot lose if she wants to get signed by Akai’s agency. She gave Akai the Christie Agape and pinned her Azusa Christie style but only got a two count. Akai recovered and hit the Rookie Award for the victory. She praised Takigawa for putting up a good fight. In a backstage interview Akai was told that she resembles a certain French girl who wrestled in Tokyo Joshi recently. Akai isn’t interested in her although she’s been told they look alike.

Hyper Misao’s crafty plan for her match against Priscilla Kelly was to bring in Shota to falsely translate her welcome message for Kelly. Misao told the audience that Kelly does not understand Japanese so she will tell them about her plan. Shota told Kelly in English that Misao wanted a clean fight. Misao also said she expects Kelly will lick her face so she rubbed wasabi on her mask before the match. Kelly briefly fainted when she licked the mask but she recovered in time to continue fighting. Misao took out a tube of wasabi paste but Kelly grabbed it off her and squeezed out the wasabi into Misao’s mouth while she was in a Dragon Sleeper. Priscilla won the match with a Cross Arm Neckbreaker Drop from the turnbuckles.

A new name, a new look, a new song and a new finishing move for Nodoka Tenma. She now uses the Killswitch to win her matches. She described today as the beginning of her second season. Chapter one was Nodoka-oneesan, Chapter two is Nodoka Tenma. She is certain both will be remembered as masterpieces!

Yukinori Matsui officiated an Up Up Girls match for the first time so he was confused by their antics like when Raku did the Good Night Express sit down on Miu. The end came with Miu giving Raku a Canadian Backbreaker Drop while Hikari hit a Missile Dropkick to Hinano. Hikari then made Hinano submit to a grounded Cobra Twist. This was the Up Up Girls’ first match in Korakuen since their debut back in January. Hikari took the losing fall in that match so she got to experience the opposite side in the same place today!

6. DDT Extreme Title – Blindfolded Hidden Breasts Death Match: HARASHIMA (c) Vs Antonio Honda

A classic ruleset is coming back for the Iron Man Heavymetalweight Title match. The match will run non-stop for 10 minutes and whoever is the champion at the end will be declared the winner.

The current Right To Challenge Gauntlet holders are Meiko Satomura (Red), HARASHIMA (Green), Akito (Yellow), Yukio Sakaguchi (Black) and Yuki Iino (Blue). Shigehiro Irie still thinks that the gimmick is unnecessary. It’s not that he hates the concept, it is because he will accept the challenges from anybody who steps up to him anyway. He wonders whenever the Gauntlet holders publicly tell everyone that they are not using their title shot if they even want to be a champion. And if they don’t want to be champion then why are they wrestling? If any of the holders want to cash in their shot straight after Irie’s match ends, he will still be ready for them. Irie always has two fights in him whenever he steps into the ring.

Irie has also criticised DDT for failing to evolve their comedy style over the years. He thinks Danshoku Dieno is partly to blame for that as the DDT Producer. Another problem is Irie’s plans for DDT aren’t coming to fruition like he was promised. He wants to defend the KO-D Openweight Title overseas but accuses Dieno of not doing anything in his power to help put it together.

Nakatsu is confident he can win the tournament and spend all of the prize money on Cavalry.

Naoki Tanizaki won’t be back in BASARA until the 19th July because he has been doing a tour of the United Kingdom and Ireland. He defended both the Union MAX Title and DOVE World Title twice during his tour. On 1st July he defeated Terry Isit at a Wrestle Island show in Birkenhead, England. Then on 7th July Tanizaki achieved another successful double title defence this time against Martin Kirby at 3 Count Wrestling in Middlesbrough.
