The Best Westen Lariat Series 2017 continues with it’s second show… eleven months after the first one… This really wasn’t much of a series was it?

BASARA “FUMA FEST VOL.1 ~WRESTLE ’EM ALL~」”, 09/12/2017
Shin-Kiba 1st RING

1. Nakatsu Dickinson Vs Takato Nakano
2. Ricky Fuji Vs Ryuselmo Sekine

4. Yusuke Kubo & Hagane Vs Isami Kodaka & Yuko Miyamoto

FUMA wants his match with Jun Kasai to be violent but it needs to be more radical than just a Hardcore Match. So he has created the Goregrind Match. It’s a Hardcore Match with Heavy Metal weapons involved. FUMA describes it as a brutal kind of Death (Metal) Match. FUMA will also be performing vocals for Dragon’s Den during the concert portion of the show.

Jinbeizamen will be coming out to a cover of the Accept song “Fast As A Shark” performed by Crucified.

Nakatsu Dickinson is Ryota Nakatsu doing an impersonation of Bruce Dickinson from Iron Maiden. In Match #2, Ryuselmo Sekine is Ryuichi Sekine as Phil Anselmo from Pantera.

Shin-Kiba 1st RING

1. Union MAX Title: Isami Kodaka (c) Vs Fuminori Abe

Isami Kodaka was ready to store away the Union MAX Title until March 2018 until Fuminori Abe came out to challenge him.

GANBARE☆WRESTLING “BURNIN’ X’MAS 2017”, 20/12/2017
Shin-Kiba 1st RING

1. Defeat The Shabby Thick Makeup!: HARUKAZE Vs Sumire Natsu

4. Independent World Jr. Heavyweight Title – Ganbare☆Wrestling Vs DAMNATION Full Battle PART 3 ~Bet On All~: Daisuke Sasaki (c) Vs Ken Ohka

It’s reached the point where it is all or nothing for Ken Ohka and Ganbare☆Wrestling. He is willing to put everything on the line against Daisuke Sasaki to win back the Independent Jr. Title. His marriage, his family, his remaining wealth and Ganpuro itself are all at risk! But a gamble this big against an opponent so uncaring has caught the attention of the rest of DAMNATION so now they are coming along for the ride!

Sumire Natsu has beaten HARUKAZE in two straight matches but both wins were under shady circumstances. Natsu only accepted one more rematch when she made Ohka pay for her bullet train tickets to and from the show. Also if Natsu wins then she will replace HARUKAZE as the regular women’s wrestler on the Ganpuro roster. Ohka has gotten his own little dig in against Natsu by giving her the nickname “Shabby Thick Makeup”.

TOKYO JOSHI PRO “SMILE YES SHINJUKU” Results

November 23, 2017

TOKYO JOSHI PRO “SMILE YES SHINJUKU”, 23/11/2017
Shinjuku FACE
432 Fans – Super No Vacancy

1. Maho Kurone defeated Yuki Kamifuku with the Ouroboros (6:07).
2. Maki Ito & Mizuki defeated Nodoka-oneesan & Marika Kobashi when Mizuki pinned Nodoka with a Diving Foot Stomp (12:15).
3. Hyper Misao Return Match: Rika Tatsumi defeated Hyper Misao with a Figure Four Leglock (10:29).
4. Saki-sama defeated Azusa Takigawa with the Two Step Face Kick (9:43).
5. TOKYO Princess Of Princess Title Next Challenger & Iron Man Heavymetalweight Title: Miyu Yamashita defeated Yuu (c) with the Crash Rabbit Heat (13:00).
*Miyu Yamashita becomes the 1,276th champion.
6. TOKYO Princess Tag Team Titles: Yuka Sakazaki & Syoko Nakajima (c) defeated Nonoko & Yuna Manase when Nakajima pinned Nonoko with a Diving Senton (17:02).
*V1 for Miracle Apricots.

The combined size advantage of the Super Milk Combination was not enough to beat the Miracle Apricots. They came close when they hit the W Oppai Ye on Syoko Nakajima but Yuka Sakazaki was there to make the save. From there the Apricots took over and wore down the challengers until Sakazaki got rid of Yuna Manase. Nakajima gave Nonoko a DDT and then won the match with a Diving Senton. The Apricots celebrated their first defence of the TOKYO Princess Tag Team Titles until the Ito Respect Army came down to the ring. Maki Ito said even though she already has a match planned for 4th January she still wants Mizuki to get a tag title match on the same show. Ito claims that there are many members in the Ito Respect Army and one of them will be Mizuki’s partner on 4th January.

Two prizes were on the line in the match between Yuu and Miyu Yamashita. The Iron Man Heavymetalweight Title and, more importantly, a spot in the main event TOKYO Princess Title match at Korakuen Hall on 4th January. Yuu bruised Yamashita’s chests with Chops and threw her around the ring. In return Yamashita kicked back with all that she had. The High Kicks took their toll and soon Yuu was defeated by the Crash Rabbit Heat. Yamashita wins the Iron Man Title and also goes on to face Reika Saiki for the Princess Title! It’s been a year and a half since she last held the Princess Title. She cannot wait to win it back. She also has to defend the Iron Man Title against Kazuki Hirata in DDT on 1st December. It will be the dance battle between Genghis Khan and TOKYO GO!

Saki-sama continues to pick on the weakest girls in Tokyo Joshi Pro. Today Azusa Takigawa tried to stand up to her but was beaten with the Two Step Face Kick. Saki said the match was truly inappropriate from beginning to end. But she was willing to show mercy because there is some beauty in Takigawa. She offered Takigawa to join her side. Takigawa refused because she is chasing her dream and Saki-sama’s obsession with beauty does not fit with that goal. Saki didn’t care what Takigawa said, her offer would not be refused. Suddenly Yukio Saint Laurent appeared and he approached Takigawa. She tried to fight him off but Laurent injected a syringe into her neck, knocking her out. He and Saki-sama left the ring with Takigawa being carried over his shoulder. Saki promised that Takigawa will become a fine lady under her supervision. She reckons we will see the new Takigawa at the next Shin-Kiba 1st RING show.

Hyper Misao had her first match in over 10 and a half months, returning from a long absence after getting reconstructive surgery on her right ACL. She reintroduced herself as the hero to protect love and peace in Tokyo Joshi. She asked Rika Tatsumi to team up with her but Tatsumi turned her down. Misao put up a fight when she was put in a Figure Four Leg Lock but eventually gave up when Tatsumi used the move a second time. Misao said afterwards that she will not give up looking for a tag team partner. But until she finds one she will also focus on becoming a stronger singles wrestler.

After the Ito Respect Corps won their match, Ito demanded a Princess Tag Title shot for 4th January. She was interrupted by Sanshiro Takagi. He has another idea that he thinks is more suitable for Ito. On 4th January Maki Ito will face Danshoku Dino one on one! Takagi thinks it is the perfect match to determine how far Ito has advanced since she became a pro wrestler. Ito accepts the match. She thinks she is so cute that fighting Dino will awaken his love for women. She will then use her cuteness to crush Dino! Mizuki expressed disappointment because she wanted to team with Ito at the show. Ito promised to talk it over with her later.

Yuki Kamifuku tried to get over her fears of wrestling a zombie but her inexperience was her downfall. Maho Kurone didn’t have much trouble wrestling her and even got a few bites in too.

The Up Up Girls (Pro Wrestling) unit introduced themselves to the audience at the start of the show. Hikari said she discovered wrestling when she was in junior high and wants to dedicate everything in her young life to take part in it. Hinano has nine years of training in judo and sambo. She wants to win a championship within one year of her debut. Raku will turn 20 years old on 5th December and is greeting her last days as a teenager with a smile. Miu is trying her best to be both an idol and a pro wrestler.

7. KO-D Tag Team Titles: HARASHIMA & Naomichi Marufuji (c) Vs Konosuke Takeshita & Akito

Akito has been frustrating HARASHIMA in their recent matches together with a pinfall victory being the most embarrassing for the KO-D Tag Team Champion. In more violent scenes, Daisuke Sasaki and Soma Takao have been throwing chairs at each other as their hatred grows between them.

Mike Bailey has been granted a shot at the Impact X Division Championship against the new champion Taiji Ishimori. Originally Bailey asked for the title match if he could beat Ishimori but his use of Google Translate to send the request was misunderstood. Ishimori took the message as an immediate challenge and agreed to put the X Division Title on the line at Differ Ariake. Bailey realises how important this match now is for him. He looks up to Ishimori and he is honored to be getting such a big opportunity.

There is a 28cm height difference between Kazusada Higuchi and Nobuhiro Shimatani. That’s the selling point of their match.

TOKYO JOSHI PRO “SMILE YES SHINJUKU”, 23/11/2017
Shinjuku FACE

1. Maho Kurone Vs Yuki Kamifuku
2. Maki Ito & Mizuki Vs Nodoka-oneesan & Marika Kobashi
3. Hyper Misao Return Match: Hyper Misao Vs Rika Tatsumi
4. Saki-sama Vs Azusa Takigawa
5. TOKYO Princess Tag Team Titles: Yuka Sakazaki & Syoko Nakajima (c) Vs Nonoko & Yuna Manase
6. TOKYO Princess Of Princess Title Next Challenger & Iron Man Heavymetalweight Title: Yuu (c) Vs Miyu Yamashita

The No. 1 Contendership for the TOKYO Princess Title will be between Miyu Yamashita and Yuu. If Yuu is still the Iron Man Heavymetalweight Champion then that belt will be on the line too. Their only previous singles match took place in September 2016 when Yuu beat Yamashita to win the Princess Title. Yamashita has promised to attack, attack, attack and attack to avenge her loss.

The Miracle Apricots are not taking their first challengers lightly. Yuka Sakazaki lost to the Super Milk Combination in a non-title tag match last week. She sees them as a giant gate to climb over. Syoko Nakajima also knows that the challengers’ team name is not a gag, it’s a description of their strength. Nonoko & Yuna Manase want to use their big chests to overpower the champion team’s speed and technical abilities.

Hyper Misao is back in action after an ACL and meniscus surgery took her out of action for over 10 months. Her debut match took place in Shinjuku FACE so her return match in the same venue feels like a re-debut. Rika Tatsumi is her chosen opponent. They went to see the movie “IT” together recently and Tatsumi had to restrain herself from figuring out what Misao’s match strategy will be.

No word yet on if the main event will be for the Indy World Jr. Title. I expect so if Sasaki beats Diego. Shinichiro Tominaga deserves it after his Amateurs Vs Professionals comparison at the last show.

It’s a Toryumon reunion of sorts for Ken Ohka’s 16th Anniversary.

TOKYO JOSHI PRO “SMILE YES SHINKIBA” Results

November 3, 2017

TOKYO JOSHI PRO “SMILE YES SHINKIBA”, 03/11/2017
Shin-Kiba 1st RING
291 Fans – Super No Vacancy

1. Syoko Nakajima defeated Yuki Kamifuku with the Northern Lights Suplex (8:40).
2. Yuu & Marika Kobashi defeated Miyu Yamashita & Maki Ito when Yuu submitted Kobashi with the Katahajime (9:54).
3. Azusa Takigawa defeated Nodoka-oneesan with a Thrust Kick (9:20).
4. Saki-sama defeated Mizuki with the Modified Foot Choke (10:30).
5. Nonoko & Yuna Manase defeated Yuka Sakazaki & Maho Kurone when Manase pinned Kurone with the W Oppai Ye ().
6. TOKYO Princess Of Princess Title: Reika Saiki (c) defeated Rika Tatsumi with the Jackhammer (15:27).
*V2 for Reika Saiki.

Reika Saiki had an answer for all of Rika Tatsumi’s offence. Saiki’s win came when she countered the Hip Attack into a Back Drop. From there Saiki hit the Shining Wizard and the Jackhammer to earn her second successful defence of the TOKYO Princess Title. Saiki announced her next defence will be at Korakuen Hall on 4th January. Miyu Yamashita came out to challenge her but Yuu came out too to do the same. Yamashita and Yuu agreed to fight each other with the winner getting the title shot against Saiki at Korakuen.

The Super Milk Combination are off to a good start by beating one half of the TOKYO Princess Tag Team Champions. Part of their entrance includes a haka style dance. The W Oppai Ye is a tag team finisher where Nonoko & Yuna Manase sandwich the victim with two Body Attacks. Manase was impressed that she and Nonoko won a match without fighting each other. They are now confident they will win the tag titles on 23rd November.

After Saki-sama beat Mizuki she was challenged to a match by Azusa Takigawa. She earned her first win today but beating just anybody in Tokyo Joshi Pro isn’t enough. She must beat Saki-sama to prove herself! Saki admitted she doesn’t remember getting involved with Takigawa last month. That’s how little she means to her. If Saki-sama is a diamond, Takigawa is a stone on the roadside. If Saki-sama is the moon, Takigawa is a turtle. If Saki-sama is Vince McMahon running the WWE, Takigawa is Tetsuya Koda eating rice on his own with a key holder. She accepts the challenge and the match will take place on 23rd November.

Both Azusa Takigawa and Nodoka-oneesan were taking today’s match seriously. Neither wanted to be seen as the weakest wrestler in Tokyo Joshi. Nodoka even revealed she was wearing training gear under her usual costume. But Takigawa proved to be more determined and she pinned Nodoka with a Thrust Kick to win her first ever singles match.

Sanshiro Takagi appeared to announce the next set of debuts for Tokyo Joshi. Earlier this year DDT and the Up Up Girls idol group set up auditions for an Up Up Girls wrestling unit. Four girls passed the audition and will have their debut matches at Korakuen Hall on 4th January. The girls are Miu (18 years old, Saitama), Raku (19 years old, Tokyo), Hikari (19 years old, Hokkaido) and Hinano (19 years old, Tokyo).

TOKYO JOSHI PRO “SMILE YES SHINKIBA”, 03/11/2017
Shin-Kiba 1st RING

1. TOKYO Princess Of Princess Title: Reika Saiki (c) Vs Rika Tatsumi

The only previous time Reika Saiki and Rika Tatsumi have wrestled in the ring together was at “JUDGEMENT 2017” in March. They were on the same team then. Tatsumi has a chance of becoming a double champion because she is also part of the Tokyo Princess Tag Team Title tournament final on 14th October. Tatsumi had never won a championship before in any sort of competition so she is motivated to win. Saiki learned in her first defence that a single mistake could cost her the championship so she is learning not to hesitate in her matches.

*V1 for Reika Saiki.

After a small setback of getting eliminated in the tag team tournament, Reika Saiki got revenge on Mizuki by beating her to keep the TOKYO Princess Of Princess Title. Saiki thanked Mizuki for the hard fought match and said her title reign has just begun. Saiki’s goal is to defend the title against everyone on Tokyo Joshi Pro so she can become the absolute champion. Rika Tatsumi stepped up to be the next challenger. She is not as famous or muscular as Saiki but she wants to launch a flying dragon revolution in Tokyo Joshi!

Yuki Kamifuku freaked out when Maho Kurone grabbed her by the hair during their match. She yelled “Do not touch my fucking hair!” during her comeback but was cut off and pinned with the Sister Abigail.
