7. TOKYO Princess Of Princess Title: Miyu Yamashita (c) defeated Rika Tatsumi with the Crash Rabbit Heat (20:04).
*V4 for Miyu Yamashita.

So close yet still so far. For twenty minutes on a brand new ring canvas, Rika Tatsumi chased after the champion Miyu Yamashita and gave it everything she got. Tatsumi trapped Yamashita in the Dragon Sleeper and tried to choke her out again but this time Yamashita kicked her way out of it. Yamashita did a High Kick and an Attitude Adjustment for a nearfall. From that point on Yamashita hit Backspin Kicks and Buzzsaw Kicks to keep Tatsumi down until Tatsumi was too weak to block the Crash Rabbit Heat. A defeated Tatsumi was helped to the back by Maho Kurone while Yamashita celebrated another TOKYO Princess Title defence. Yamashita told everyone she had fun being taken to her limit by Tatsumi. But she still needs energy left over because the next Tokyo Joshi Pro show is only two days away in Itabashi. As long as Yamashita keeps standing in this ring and as long as there is support from everyone, Yamashita will go beyond her limits even more!

Vengeance is sweet for Marika Kobashi! After suffering so much humiliation from NEO Biishiki-gun, Kobashi finally won the TOKYO Princess Tag Team Titles from them with Reika Saiki. The intensive training Kobashi had with Saiki leading up to the match paid off. Saiki was at her strongest and at one point suplexed both Saki-saka & Azusa Christie at the same time. Saiki and Saki-sama took each other out with a Shining Wizard from Saiki followed in response with a Big Boot from Saki. Christie tried to hit the Christie Agape on Kobashi but it was blocked. Christie hit a Codebreaker but Kobashi toughened it out a stunned Christie with a Dropkick for the surprise three count! An angry Christie refused to accept the result but Saki-sama calmed her down. Everybody makes mistakes and surely there is something that Christie cherishes more than a championship belt. Christie said there is and it’s Saki-sama. They then left the ring for the new champions to celebrate. Kobashi said she has dreamed of this day for so long. Saiki told her it is now their goal to defend the titles as much as possible. The Ito Respect Army then came out to challenge them. They agreed to a match on the 19th May show in Kitazawa, two days after Kobashi’s birthday. Maki Ito promised to give her the gift of regretful tears when she and Mizuki become the new champions!

A special rule was added to the Falls Count Anywhere Match between Hyper Misao and Jun Kasai. Each wrestler needed to eat an entire bag of chocolate or else their pinfall attempts will not be counted. Misao came up with the idea and convinced Kasai that it counts as a death match. Kasai accepted the rule because he never turns down a death match! When the bell rang both Misao and Kasai rushed through their bag of chocolate until Kasai went in search of water to wash it down. He had to ask the audience for a drink because Misao secretly hid his bottle. When they started wrestling, Kasai put Misao in a Cobra Twist but Misao spat water at him to escape. Misao escaped and Kasai went searching for her. He went to the lobby and found a castle of chairs laid out in front of him. Hyper Misao surprised him by coming out on the Combat Bicycle and she sped towards him. Kasai moved out of the way and Misao crashed into the castle of chairs! Kasai went back to ringside but Misao caught up with him. She snuck up to one of the audience entrances and dove onto Kasai. They returned to the ring where Kasai took out a ladder. He tried to press it onto Misao’s head and shoulders but that backfired when Misao spun around to hit him with the ladder. Misao set a table at ringside but Kasai knocked her down onto it. Kasai then climbed the turnbuckles and splashed Misao through the table! Kasai rolled her back into the ring and went for the pin but the referee refused to count. Kasai never finished his bag of chocolate! He ate the last piece and went for the Reverse Tiger Driver but Misao fought out of it. Misao went for a Cross Body but Kasai caught her with a Lariat. He positioned her in the centre of the ring with a Vertical Drop Brainbuster and finally put her away with the Pearl Harbour Splash from the ladder. After the match Kasai told Misao he thought the chocolate rule was stupid and a horrible idea for a death match. But something is strange. The chocolate he ate during the match was the best he ever tasted. It made him feel alive! That is the magical power of the pro wrestling ring. Together they are pro wrestlers and Kasai now considers Misao a worthy rival.

Dead Of Alive didn’t last long as a team. At first they worked well together, surprising the Miraclians with an attack before the bell. Shoko Nakajima & Yuka Sakazaki fought back with their double team moves but Su Yung cut off their momentum by spitting red Poison Mist at Sakazaki. Maho Kurone went to give Nakajima the Ouroboros but it was blocked. Sakazaki regained her vision and hit the Magical Girl Splash on Kurone before sending Yung out of the ring with a Hurricanrana. Nakajima then got the win with the Diving Senton to Kurone. After the match Kurone and Yung butted heads before leaving in separate directions. Kurone then attacked Yung backstage. Yukinori Matsui tried to break it up but ended up having his arm bitten by Kurone.

All of the support from the fans wasn’t enough for Maki Ito to beat Riho. Ito was stretched and pulled apart by Riho’s moves but the rallying cries of “Who’s the cutest in the world? Ito-chan!” kept her fighting. She survived a Diving Double Stomp but was finally put down with the Somato. Ito was left in the ring with Mizuki to think about another defeat. Ito said she brought in Mizuki to start the Ito Respect Army but she doesn’t think Mizuki respects her. She only teams with her out of kindness. Well no more! Ito is going to disband the Ito Respect Army! Mizuki stopped her. She isn’t teaming her just out of kindness, she really wants to be with Ito. They hugged and agreed to keep the Ito Respect Army going. They got the crowd to call Ito cute again then Ito sang “Ultra Soul” while they left the ring.

Yuki Aino was feeling so emotional over her debut match that she was already wiping tears from her eyes after her entrance. Aino tagged with her older sister Nodoka-oneesan to take on Yuu and Up Up Girls member Hikari. Aino’s big spot in the match was giving Yuu a Side Suplex. However Yuu recovered and pinned Aino with the Ittenyon throw. Aino said the match felt like it came and went in a blink of an eye. She promises to work hard alongside her sister.

Yuna Manase doesn’t want to waste any time coming back from surgery. Her goal is to win the championship and she will do her best to achieve it.

Four new trainees were introduced to the audience at the beginning of the show. Haruna is only 143cm tall so she will be the shortest member of the roster when she debuts. Kyo comes from an open training class held by that DDT. Yumi is a 13 year old junior high school student who is 173cm tall. Kirino wants to be like Shawn Michaels.

This is the last DDT show before “JUDGEMENT 2018” a week later. The two matches I have the most interest in are Yukio Sakaguchi Vs Kota Umeda and Ethan Page Vs Naomi Yoshimura. Two fresh grudges for different reasons. Umeda is facing his former “brother” one on one while Page wants to show he is much stronger than Yoshimura.

4. DDT Extreme Title: Yuko Miyamoto (c) Vs Mike Bailey

Mike Bailey gets the DDT Extreme Title shot. The match stipulation has yet to be decided by Yuko Miyamoto.

High stakes are being made by Sanshiro Takagi. He is making himself and Toru Owashi put their DDT careers on the line against two unknown opponents. Whoever takes the losing fall in the match will no longer be allowed inside a DDT ring ever again. Usually when this happens the losing wrestler discovers a long lost foreign relative to take his place.

TOKYO JOSHI PRO “LET’S GO! GO! IF YOU GO! WHEN YOU GO! IF YOU GET LOST JUST GO TO YOKOHAMA!”, 10/03/2018
Yokohama Radiant Hall
276 Fans – Super No Vacancy

1. Shoko Nakajima & Raku defeated Hikari & Hinano when Nakajima pinned Hikari with the Northern Lights Suplex (8:50).
2. 3 Way Match: Yuka Sakazaki defeated Nodoka-oneesan and Yuki Kamifuku when Sakazaki pinned Kamifuku with the Magical Girl Splash (9:03).
3. Rika Tatsumi defeated Maki Ito with the Diving Hip Attack (13:21).
4. Yuu defeated Hyper Misao with the Modified Katahajime (7:29).
5. Saki-sama & Azusa Christie defeated Mizuki & Marika Kobashi when Christie pinned Kobashi with a Bulldgo Headlock Switchback (9:06).
6. TOKYO Princess Of Princess Title: Miyu Yamashita (c) defeated Maho Kurone with the Crash Rabbit Heat (12:55).
*V3 for Miyu Yamashita.

A terrifying challenge lay ahead for Miyu Yamashita. It was definitely her most dangerous TOKYO Princess Title defence to date as Maho Kurone used a chair to beat up the champion. However, Yamashita saw an opportunity when Kurone was arguing with the referee over the chair usage. Yamashita grabbed Kurone and gave her a Backbreaker onto the edge of the chair! Kurone wasn’t beaten yet and she kicked out of a German Suplex. Yamashita unleashed a bunch of kicks and a Missile Dropkick to weaken the zombie. Kurone withstood the attacks and was trying to stand back up until Yamashita struck her with a Buzzsaw Kick. Finally, Kurone was defeated with the Crash Rabbit Heat.

After the main event Yamashita called it a crazy match because she fought a zombie armed with a chair. But it was fun and another reason why Tokyo Joshi Pro gives her the best companions and rivals. Rika Tatsumi stepped into the ring and said she is disappointed because she wanted to see her friend Kurone change the world today. Tatsumi wants to help Tokyo Joshi to grow and become more exciting. Even though she has lost several title matches already, she wants to be Yamashita’s next challenger even though she is a loser. Yamashita told Tatsumi she isn’t a loser and is cooler than she thinks. To prove it, Yamashita will give her a title shot at Korakuen Hall on 3rd May! Tatsumi promised to win but Yamashita warned she is still stronger than her.

Marika Kobashi was left frustrated after another loss to NEO Biishiki-gun. She gave Azusa Christie a Bulldog Headlock but Christie held on to her and rolled her into a Cradle for the flash three count. Kobashi refused to accept defeat and said she will continue to fight them. Christie called her rude. Saki-sama joined in and added a bunch of insults. If Saki is a swan flying in the sky then Kobashi is a crow inside a trash can. If Saki is a beautiful and blooming rose then Kobashi is a fake flower selling for 5 yen. Saki-sama promoted her friend Saki Akai’s show being held next week and then left.

Maki Ito wanted to go at full speed against Rika Tatsumi, going as far as to shout her intentions out loud as she ran the ropes. That gave Tatsumi the idea to target her legs. Ito fought out of the Figure 4 Leglock and applied a Crab Hold but Tatsumi reached the ropes and told her the move was ineffective. Ito avoided a DDT and Headbutted Tatsumi but Tatsumi returned fire with a Hip Attack. She then hit the Dragon Twist Of Fate and a Diving Hip Attack to win.

Yuki Kamifuku played dumb to avoid getting involved in the action during the 3 Way Match, calling the idea too dangerous for her. When Yuka Sakazaki and Nodoka-oneesan turned their attention to her, she acted like she was being forced to fight in a Handicap Match against both of them and cowered away. She then attacked them when they dropped their guard. However Sakazaki fought back and pinned her with the Magical Girl Splash.

He has the Union MAX Title from BASARA, shares the STRONGEST-K TAG Titles with Tank Nagai in K-Dojo, and just a few days ago won both the NWA World Jr. Heavyweight Title and the International Jr. Heavyweight Title from Sean Guinness in Zero1. His only complaints are a busy schedule of title defences in his future and carrying around a heavy suitcase containing four championship belts to and from shows.

Tokyo Itabashi Green Hall

1. TOKYO Princess Tag Team Titles Match: Saki-sama & Azusa Christie (c) Vs Miyu Yamashita & Marika Kobashi

NEO Biishiki-gun have purposefully nominated Marika Kobashi as one of their next challengers knowing that she is one of the weakest girls on the roster. Luckily for her, Miyu Yamashita wants to fight by her side. Was this a plan that backfired for Saki-sama & Azusa Christie or have they found a way to sneak into the singles title picture?

5. BASARA Three Major Single Match: Trans-Am ★ Ryuichi Vs Fuminori Abe
6. BASARA Three Major Single Match: Ryota Nakatsu Vs Manabu Hara
7. Union MAX Title – BASARA Three Major Single Match: Isami Kodaka (c) Vs Tsutomu Oosugi

Normally Isami Kodaka wouldn’t be worried to fight against someone like Tsutomu Oosugi. He only lost to Oosugi in the IRON FIST TAG TOURNAMENT because of a missed attack by his partner for the match Yoshihisa Uto. However, ever since then Kodaka’s neck has been feeling stiff and he’s been sleeping rough because of it. It’s ironic that he’s fighting a masseur then, isn’t it? Regardless, Kodaka wants to fight Oosugi the pro wrestler. Not Oosugi the Best Stretch masseur or even the Oosugi from Speed Of Sounds. Kodaka wants Oosugi to be as selfish in the ring as he is for this match. Oosugi is in an odd position because he rarely wrestles in singles matches.

Ryota Nakatsu mentioned that he wanted a match against someone so dangerous that it could result in the end of his career. Manabu Hara answered the challenge and joked that Nakatsu can request a different opponent if he’s too scared. Nakatsu didn’t take the comment well and will be ready to fight Hara.

Trans-Am ★ Ryuichi is threatening to crush Fuminori Abe with the Justice Punch. Abe thinks there are too many Americans in BASARA and too many horizontal letters that comes with them. It is up to Abe to protect Japan for the spirits that have protected people like him.

Trans-Am ★ Hiroshi will travel to India in March to study yoga and acquire certification from the National Yoga Alliance. Hiroshi said last year he turned 30 years old and in that time he was infected with three diseases and suffered from shoulder dislocation, cecum pain and gout. Through yoga he was able to heal himself from those ailments when scientific treatments could not.

*V2 for Miyu Yamashita.

All the bust training in the would wasn’t enough for Yuna Manase to win the TOKYO Princess Title today. She kicked out of Miyu Yamashita’s Attitude Adjustment but was put away with the Crash Rabbit Heat. Maho Kurone snuck up behind Yamashita after the match and scared her. Kurone then grabbed the Princess Title belt out of curiosity and looked at it while Yamashita figured out this was her way of challenging her to a title match.

Reika Saiki said she felt motivated in her first match since losing the Princess Title at the start of the year. She was busy studying for exams so she had to stay away from pro wrestling for a while to focus. She described it like spending time away from a boyfriend made her realise how much she likes him after all.

Azusa Christie offered a necklace to Nodoka-oneesan before their match. It seemed like a friendly gesture but Christie then said they were “pearls for a pig after all”. Nodoka threw away the necklace but Chrisite then attacked her. Christie later force fed Nodoka with acorns so she could be fattened up like a pig. After Christie won the match she invited Saki-sama to join her in the ring. Their celebration was cut off by Yuu. She said if they are being called pigs then at least pigs are muscular unlike them. Saki continued to taunt her by asking what kind of dish they will be turned into in Seijo next month. Nodoka admitted that the acorns she was fed wasn’t poisonous. Yuu was confused, does Nodoka actually want to eat that stuff and go along with NEO Biishiki-gun’s insults? Nodoka explained if she can’t handle acorns then she won’t be able to handle the TOKYO Princess Tag Team Titles.

Hyper Misao surprised Yuki Kamifuku with a birthday cake during their match because Kamifuku’s birthday is in two day’s time. Misao then slapped the cake into Kamifuku’s face.

Miyu Yamashita, Maki Ito & Mizuki Vs Saki-sama, Azusa Christie and a mystery partner was announced as the Tokyo Joshi Pro Offer Match for “JUDGEMENT 2018” at Sumo Hall on 25th March. This is the first time the Tokyo Joshi produced match will feature on the main card of a DDT Sumo Hall show. The previous matches were either on the pre-show or were cross-promotional matches under the DDT banner.

Hikari avoided Miu’s Canadian Backbreaker and countered her into a Japanese Leg Roll Clutch to get the three count. Later in the show the Up Up Girls told everyone their favourite wrestling techniques. Raku likes Dropkicks, Hikari likes the Phoenix Splash, Miu likes power moves and Hinano likes the Drunken Fist fighting style. However the No Alcohol rule in Tokyo Joshi prevents her from trying it out.
