With Marika Kobashi back in the groove she wants to team up with Reika Saiki again and regain the TOKYO Princess Tag Team Titles. The Muscle JK team won the belts last May but had to vacate them three months later when Kobashi went down with her injury. They did not get an immediate title shot for two reason. One, Saiki already had a chance to win them back when she teamed with Maki Ito during Kobashi’s absence but lost the match. And two, another team wants to be in the next title match. Natsumi Maki & Hikari Noa are that other team. In her short time here in Tokyo Joshi Pro, Maki has spent most it in the ring with Noa both as teammates and opponents.

Chinsuke chased them off each time until the venue’s manager Mr. Sato opened a door and accidentally knocked Chinsuke out. Mr. Sato unintentionally pinned Chinsuke while he checked on him and ended up becoming the champion. Chinsuke won back the title a little while later when he ambushed Sato inside the building and trapped him under a ringside mat. Tanabota and Goto applauded from the bleachers.

TOKYO JOSHI PRO “BE UPDATED TO THE FUTURE, THE FUTURE, THE FUTURE”, 23/02/2019
Shinjuku FACE

1. TOKYO Princess Tag Team Titles: Yuka Sakazaki & Mizuki (c) Vs Winners Of 26/1 Tag Match

Yuka Sakazaki stood beside the arguments going on between the two teams vying for a title shot. She misread the situation and thought they were asking for a 4 Vs 2 match of some sort. To her credit, that kind of thinking might have avoided putting the Magical Sugar Rabbits in a situation where they would defend the titles against both teams in a 3 Way Tag Match. Instead they will go head to head with the better team out of the two potential challengers.

January 19, 2019

TOKYO JOSHI PRO “TOKYO JOSHI X BELLE EPOQUE BEAUTY COLLEGE BOX OFFICE – I WANT TO BECOME BEAUTIFUL, I WANT TO BE POPULAR”, 19/01/2019
Tokyo Belle Epoque Beauty College Event Hall
215 Fans – No Vacancy

1. Maki Ito defeated Pom Harajuku with the Ito Special (9:11).
2. 3 Way Match: Nodoka Tenma defeated Pinano Pipipipi and Haruna Neko when Tenma pinned Neko with the Killswitch (8:17).
3. Yuki Kamifuku defeated Himawari Unagi with the Fame Asser (5:20).
4. Natsumi Maki & Hikari Noa defeated Shoko Nakajima & Mina Shirakawa when Maki pinned Shirakawa with the Backlash (11:33).
5. Reika Saiki & Marika Kobashi defeated Yuka Sakazaki & Yuki Aino when Kobashi pinned Aino with a Running Bulldog Headlock (12:34).
6. Miyu Yamashita, Miu Watanabe & Raku defeated Mizuki, Yuna Manase & YUMI when Yamashita pinned YUMI with the Attitude Adjustment (13:01).

This Tokyo Joshi Pro show was a collaboration with the Belle Epoque Beauty College. Each wrestler taking part had their hair and make up done by one of the college students. Azusa Takigawa was involved as the show’s adviser. After the main event Miyu Yamashita said her make-up turned messy from the match. But she sees that as evidence for how hard she worked in the ring.

Marika Kobashi has only worked a handful of matches since her return from injury this month. With that said, she wants to continue teaming with Reika Saiki so Muscle JK can regain the TOKYO Princess Tag Team Titles! Saiki said she already tried to win back the titles with Maki Ito last year and failed. But now that Kobashi is back she too wants the pair of them to challenge for the belts they never lost. Yuka Sakazaki entered the ring and accepted the challenge. However Natsumi Maki & Hikari Noa came out and said that they should get the next title shot instead. Sakazaki doesn’t want to defend the titles against both teams at the same time so instead a No. 1 Contenders Match with Saiki & Kobashi against Maki & Noa will take place on 26th January. Sakazaki is excited to see everybody on the roster doing their best to increase the value of Tokyo Joshi’s championships. But she and Mizuki will never lose the Tag Titles to anybody!

Yuki Kamifuku was accompanied by her pet dog Zac for her match against Himawari Unagi. She says Zac brings her good fortune. Kamifuku also said that with her makeup she was now the “Mariah Carey of Fujisawa”.

The girls in the 3 Way Match all had their faces painted to look like cats.

Aja Kong, Mika Iwata from Sendai Girls and Rina Shingaki from K-DOJO will all compete on the 31st March show in Hakata Star Lanes. They are coming in as special guests because the show will be the last joshi wrestling event to take place in the venue before it closes down.

The Tokyo Joshi Offer match on the “JUDGEMENT 2019” pre-show will be Yuna Manase, Nodoka Tenma & Yuki Aino Vs Natsumi Maki, Hikari Noa & Miu Watanabe.


TOKYO JOSHI PRO “TOKYO JOSHI PRO ’19” Results

January 4, 2019

TOKYO JOSHI PRO “TOKYO JOSHI PRO ’19”, 04/01/2019
Tokyo Korakuen Hall
1,381 Fans – Super No Vacancy Full House

1. Marika Kobashi Return Battle: Raku, Hikari Noa, Pinano Pipipipi & Miu Watanabe defeated Marika Kobashi, Mina Shirakawa, Haruna Neko & Pom Harajuku when Noa submitted Harajuku with the Modified Cobra Twist (12:54).
2. The 2nd Queen Of U.S.A. Decision Battle: Veda Scott defeated Hyper Misao and Yuna Manase with the U.S.A. (6:45).
*Veda Scott becomes the 2nd Queen Of U.S.A.
3. Millie McKenzie & Natsumi Maki defeated Nodoka Tenma & Yuki Aino when Maki pinned Aino with a German Suplex (10:24).
4. Himawari Unagi Debut Match: Saki Akai & YUMI defeated Yuki Kamifuku & Himawari Unagi when Akai submitted Unagi with the Foot Choke (8:39).
5. Special Single Match: Meiko Satomura defeated Reika Saiki with the Death Valley Bomb (14:49).
6. TOKYO Princess Tag Team Titles: Yuka Sakazaki & Mizuki (c) defeated Shoko Nakajima & Riho when Sakazaki pinned Nakajima with the Magical Magical Girl Splash (17:13).
*V3 for The Magical Sugar Rabbits.
7. TOKYO Princess Of Princess Title: Miyu Yamashita (c) defeated Maki Itoh with the Crash Rabbit Heat (17:47).
*V7 for Miyu Yamashita.

Determination by itself can only get you so far. Maki Itoh went into Korakuen Hall determined to beat Miyu Yamashita no matter the skill gap. She was determined to become the TOKYO Princess Of Princess Champion against all odds. Sadly it just couldn’t happen. The Inverted Crab Hold and Flying Big Head couldn’t beat Yamashita. Then when momentum switched sides and Yamashita started hitting the big moves it was only a matter of time until Itoh fell and wouldn’t get back up. Itoh had one last chance with a Jumping DDT counter for the Crash Rabbit Heat but Yamashita recovered. The champion then overwhelmed Itoh with Kicks and the Crash Rabbit Heat to come out on top.

Yamashita brought up on the microphone Ito’s goal of becoming the champion and bringing in a new era for Tokyo Joshi Pro. The problem is the Yamashita era is not even close to ending yet! Yamashita is the champion because she is strong. There are others in Tokyo Joshi who are getting stronger and one day she will lose the title to someone like them. Yamashita wants Itoh to be one of them. She stuck her hand out for a fist bump but Itoh gave her the middle finger in return. When Itoh left the ring Yamashita admitted she didn’t expect to face such a difficult struggle today. But she cannot afford to lose the championship now. As far as she is concerned Tokyo Joshi is not just Number 1, it’s the only one! Backstage Itoh was crying over the loss but isn’t feeling sorry for herself. She is weak now but she will be a champion! Even if it means starting all over from the beginning, she will not give up. She also thought headlining Korakuen isn’t that big of a deal. She wants Yamashita to stay as the champion so she can beat her for the belt.

The Magical Sugar Rabbits were put up against the strongest possible combination put together to beat them and they persevered. The Twin Cam Monsters of Shoko Nakajima & Riho did what they could including the Northern Lights Suplex and Somato. In the end Mizuki softened up Nakajima with the Cutie Special, leaving Yuka Sakazaki to finish her friend off with the Magical Magical Girl Splash. The Sugar Rabbits’ new goal is to keep the TOKYO Princess Tag Team Titles all the way up to the 2020 Olympic Games. They think they can qualify for the Olympic wrestling events that way.

From the start Meiko Satomura wanted to fight the power of Reika Saiki. She was able to escape from the Tower Bridge by applying a Sleeper Hold onto Saiki. A Shining Wizard to the back of the head put Satomura in danger. But Saiki was unable to hit the Jackhammer. Satomura regained control and hit the Death Valley Driver for the win. Saiki called this match the most painful one of her career. She has a strong body and a strong mind but today she discovered she doesn’t have a strong heart. It seems that her pro wrestling life starts again here. Satomura on the other hand is paying notice to her emerging competition. She wants to wrestle against women like Saiki as many times as possible.

The debuting Himawari Unagi didn’t wait to face the biggest challenge available to her. She wanted to face off with Saki Akai straight away when their tag match began. Meanwhile Yuki Kamifuku berated YUMI for wrestling instead of doing her homework. YUMI got rid of Kamifuku with a Full Nelson Buster while Akai submitted Unagi with the Foot Choke. Unagi has two goals she wants to achieve as a wrestler. One, she wants to beat every Tokyo Joshi wrestler in single matches and two, she wants to be in somebody’s best match on the roster.

With the controversy surrounding her entry into Toyko Joshi now behind her, Natsumi Maki had her first match in the promotion along with Millie McKenzie. Together they defeated The Bakuretsu Sisters. McKenzie threw Nodoka Tenma aside with the German Suplex so Maki could focus on Yuki Aino. Maki used the ropes to flip backwards over Aino from a Reverse DDT position and pinned her with her own German Suplex. Maki said that winning her first match of the year inside Korakuen Hall is a sign she is going to have a good 2019.

Hyper Misao brought back the Queen Of U.S.A. match for herself and Yuna Manase to fight over. This time Veda Scott was invited to join in the fun. The goal of the match is to wear a US flag hat and do the Shoot Dance as seen in the music video for “USA” by DA PUMP. Scott was able to do the dance after hitting the Spear to her opponents.

The opening match was a big occasion for a lot of the girls involved. It was Marika Kobashi’s first match back in almost eight months. It was also the first time the entire Up Up Girls (Pro Wrestling) got to team together since getting their new ring personas. The rest (Mina Shirakawa, Haruna Neko & Pom Harajuku) all got to wrestle in Korakuen for the first time.

Rika Tatsumi sang her entrance theme to the audience after intermission.

The Bakuretsu Sisters get to wrestle in their hometown of Okayama on 14th October. Tokyo Joshi Pro will have a show based around Tenma & Aino’s return there.


Let’s Kick Off 2019!

8. KO-D 6-Man Tag Team Titles: CIMA, T-Hawk & Duan Yingnan (c) Vs Konosuke Takeshita, Akito & Yuki Iino

It is now confirmed that the KO-D 6-Man Tag Team Titles match is the main event for DDT’s first show of the year. #STRONGHEARTS defend against ALL OUT and there’s a few small stories to keep track of. CIMA wants Akito to take the fall so #STRONGHEARTS will have swept over the entire ALL OUT unit. CIMA is also encouraging Duan Yingnan to beat Konosuke Takeshita to raise the newcomer’s reputation. Takeshita is riding a wave of momentum by winning the D-Ou Grand Prix as well as the New Year Shuffle Tag Tournament. #STRONGHEART’s only defeat in DDT happened because of Akito and he’s the sole person in the company to claim a win over the invaders. Yuki Iino is eager to show what he learned teaming with Daisuke Sekimoto on the New Year’s Eve show.

The 3 Way Tag is now a Ladder match with an otoshidama gift envelope hanging above the ring for the wrestlers to fight over.

TOKYO JOSHI PRO “TOKYO JOSHI PRO ’19”, 04/01/2019
Tokyo Korakuen Hall

1. Nodoka Tenma & Yuki Aino Vs Millie McKenzie & X
2. 3 Way Match: Hyper Misao Vs Yuna Manase Vs Veda Scott
3. Marika Kobashi Return Battle: Marika Kobashi, Mina Shirakawa, Haruna Neko & Pom Harajuku Vs Raku, Hikari Noa, Pipipipi Pinano & Miu Watanabe
4. Unagi Himawari Debut Match: Saki Akai & YUMI Vs Yuki Kamifuku & Unagi Himawari
5. Special Single Match: Meiko Satomura Vs Reika Saiki
6. TOKYO Princess Tag Team Titles: Yuka Sakazaki & Mizuki (c) Vs Shoko Nakajima & Riho
7. TOKYO Princess Of Princess Title: Miyu Yamashita (c) Vs Maki Ito

For those attending this show, it will end at around 2:30pm so you’ll have plenty of time to get ready for the Tokyo Dome afterwards.

Will Miyu Yamashita’s curiosity about Maki Ito’s abilities get in the way of her own performance? Two months ago she intentionally beat Ito with a Crab Hold in order to see how Ito would recover her momentum. A month later Ito was able to pin Yamashita as part of a 2/3 Falls Tag Match so Ito is capable of beating the champion even if it’s by fluke. Yamashita is certain they will have an interesting match together and wants to find out what version of Ito shows up for the big main event. Ito thinks this is the most special TOKYO Princess Title match ever. She knows that the fanbase are expecting her to lose but that only means they won’t see it coming when she wins! Ito lost a lot and went through many twists and turns to get here. If she becomes champion, fans can look at her and think “Maybe I am a loser like Ito, but I might be able to win like her too.”

The Magical Sugar Rabbits are determined to hold onto the TOKYO Princess Tag Team Titles because the championship is what makes their team. They will always be on good terms but should they lose the belts to the Twin Cam Monsters then it would greatly diminish their bond. The belts are what brought them together in the first place and they’re having too much fun together to let it fade away like that.

Kitazawa Town Hall

It’s the Raw After Mani-… The New Year’s D-… The Hangov-no wait they don’t drink… It’s the Tokyo Joshi Pro version of that show that takes place the day after the big event!

DDT “SHIMO-KITAZAWA FIGHTING THEATER 2019”, 05/01/2019

5. DAMNATION Vs ALL OUT!: Daisuke Sasaki & Mad Paulie Vs Konosuke Takeshita & Yuki Iino
6. KO-D Tag Team Titles & STRONGEST-K TAG Titles: Mike Bailey & MAO (K/c) Vs Makoto Oishi & Shiori Asahi (S/c)

Shuji Ishikawa has signed a contract with All Japan which means he won’t be around for DAMNATION any more. Daisuke Sasaki tweeted that he now has to look for a new pet. Maybe Mad Paulie can cheer him up. Will Sasaki be in the right mindset for Takeshita at Sumo Hall next month? Was he even in the right mindset before?

The champions accepted the challenge and we now have a main event title match added to BASARA’s first event of 2019!


Yuu’s Final Tokyo Joshi Match, Ganpro Barb Wire Match At Korakuen, Nakajima Joins Forces With Riho

1. Kyou Debut Match: Kyou Vs Yuka Sakazaki

4. 3 Way Match: Mizuki Vs Nodoka Tenma Vs Hinano
5. Shoko Nakajima Vs Yuu
6. Miyu Yamashita & Hikari Vs Maki Ito & Yuki Aino

Now that the Iron Man Heavymetalweight Title is out of the main event picture, Maki Ito has to put all of her focus on Miyu Yamashita. According to Yamashita this will be the best idea for Ito because the chase for the TOKYO Princess Title is more interesting when the challenger doesn’t already have a belt.

Shinjuku FACE

1. Yumi Debut Match: Yumi Vs Saki Akai

6. Hitori Shiten No Puroresu, All Or Nothing Big Battle: Keisuke Ishii Vs Jun Akiyama
7. No Rope Barbed Wire Death Match: Ken Ohka Vs Minoru Fujita

The most developed feud in Ganbare☆Wrestling’s history has come back to the surface for the group’s second show in Korakuen Hall. There is history between Ken Ohka and Minoru Fujita, sometimes as friends but mostly as enemies. To ensure both men will give their absolute all, the match is going to be a No Rope Barbed Wire Death Match!

TOKYO JOSHI PRO “TOKYO JOSHI PRO ’19”, 04/01/2019
Tokyo Korakuen Hall

1. Special Single Match: Meiko Satomura Vs Reika Saiki
2. TOKYO Princess Tag Team Titles: Yuka Sakazaki & Mizuki (c) Vs Shoko Nakajima & Riho
3. TOKYO Princess Of Princess Title: Miyu Yamashita (c) Vs Maki Ito

The relationship mapping for the TOKYO Princess Tag Team Titles match is a little bit all over the place. Yuka Sakazaki and Shoko Nakajima are friends and team together as the Miraclians. But Sakazaki currently teams with Mizuki as the Magical Sugar Rabbits. Mizuki has been friends with Riho since before joining Tokyo Joshi and they teamed together to challenge for the Tag Titles back in January. So when Nakajima was looking for someone good enough to beat the best team in TJPW, she picked Riho. No mention of a team name for them yet but there has certainly has to be one for the sake of the relationship chart.


TOKYO JOSHI PRO “5th ANNIVERSARY SHINKIBA TOUR 2018 AUTUMN THREE” Results

November 17, 2018

TOKYO JOSHI PRO “5th ANNIVERSARY SHINKIBA TOUR 2018 AUTUMN THREE”, 17/11/2018
Shin-Kiba 1st RING
288 Fans – Super No Vacancy

1. Yuki Kamifuku defeated Hinano with the Fame Asser (7:43).
2. Haruna Neko Debut Match: Shoko Nakajima defeated Haruna Neko with the Unmanned Local Train Hold (6:36).
3. 3 Way Match: Yuna Manase defeated Raku and Mina Shirakawa when Manase pinned Raku with the Neck Screw Hold (11:20).
4. Iron Man Heavymetalweight Title: Miyu Yamashita & Nodoka Tenma defeated Maki Ito (c) & Hyper Misao when Yamashita submitted Ito with a Crab Hold (13:24).
*Miyu Yamashita becomes the 1,333rd champion.
5. Yuu defeated Yuki Aino with the Katahajime (8:28).
6. TOKYO Princess Tag Team Titles: Yuka Sakazaki & Mizuki (c) defeated Hikari & Miu when Sakazaki pinned Hikari with the Magical Magical Girl Splash (14:34).
*V2 for The Magical Sugar Rabbits.

The Up Up Girls duo put up a good fight with even Miu doing a Double Body Slam to Yuka Sakazaki & Mizuki but they just couldn’t beat the TOKYO Princess Tag Team Champions. Late in the match Hikari kept Sakazaki in her clutches with the Cobra Twist but Mizuki broke the hold. Sakazaki dropped Hikari with the Complete Shot, Mizuki followed up with a Diving Foot Stop and Sakazaki got the pin with the Magical Magical Girl Splash. The champions told Hikari & Miu that they respect them from the bottom of their hearts.

Shoko Nakajima then entered the ring. She congratulated the Magical Sugar Rabbits and called them the best team in Tokyo Joshi Pro. She wants to challenge them for the tag titles at Korakuen Hall on 4th Janaury but knows that Sakazaki is her best partner when they team up as Miraclians. She needs to team with somebody beyond Sakazaki and boy did she find someone. It’s Riho! The Rabbits accepted the challenge. It kind of complicates the relationships between all four women but they all think it is worth it to create the best match possible.

Yuu asked Nodoka Tenma to be her final opponent in Tokyo Joshi on 1st December. The two made their debuts on the same day and have wrestled each other more times than any other person in the company. Tenma accepted but told Yuu she will not lose to her again. Tenma will finally beat Yuu on the day Yuu leaves Tokyo Joshi!

Maki Ito suffered a major blow in the build up to 4/1 by losing the Iron Man Heavymetalweight Title to Miyu Yamashita! The two faced off in a tag match with Nodoka Tenma and Hyper Misao also involved. Ito kicked out of a Right High Kick at one but was beaten down by Yamashita with Buzzsaw Kicks and a Cobra Clutch. Yamashita then locked in a Crab Hold to make Ito submit. Yamashita poured salt on the wounds by taunting Ito with both the Iron Man Title and the TOKYO Princess Title before leaving the ring. Yamashita achieved her goal for today. She thinks their Korakuen match will be more interesting if Ito has to chase after her in the build up. Ito can’t do that if she already has a championship. Well, problem solved.

Haruna Neko had her debut match against Shoko Nakajima. It started off playful as both girls had fun with each other’s tails. Haruna also used a test of strength to make fun of Nakajima’s height by lifting her hand above Nakajima’s reach. Nakajima rolled Haruna into the Unmanned Local Train Hold from a La Magistral to make the rookie submit. For now Haruna hopes to learn more moves that she can use in her next matches.

The two remaining trainees waiting to debut learned who they will be facing in their first matches. Kyou takes on Yuka Sakazaki on 24th November and Yumi will face Saki Akai on 1st December.

5. DDT Special Four Great Singles Match: MAO (#9) Vs Jun Kasai (#20)
6. Iron Man Heavymetalweight Title ~ DDT Special Four Great Singles Match: Maki Ito (#3) (c) Vs Konosuke Takeshita (#13)
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.
