Antonio Honda suggested to Daisuke Sasaki that they should have no disqualifications in their DDT Extreme Title match. Sasaki has been beating Honda with Low Blows and other dirty tactics while Honda recently pinned Sasaki by going the same route. So why try to hide the cheating?

Now that Sasaki’s dodgy translations are behind them, Saki Akai & Heidi Katrina have put aside their differences to form a tag team. They think they can be the best and most beautiful tag team in the world.

TOKYO JOSHI PRO “AT THIS TIME, GET EXCITED IN KASUKABE” Results

May 14, 2017

TOKYO JOSHI PRO “AT THIS TIME, GET EXCITED IN KASUKABE”, 14/05/2017
Saitama Kasukabe Hall
241 Fans – Super No Vacancy

1. Mizuki defeated Nodoka-oneesan with the Cutie Special (7:31).
2. 3 Way Match: Yuna Manase defeated Nonoko and Maho Kurone when Manase pinned Nonoko with the Neck Screw (7:16).
3. Miyu Yamashita defeated Azusa Takigawa with the Attitude Adjustment (10:24).
4. Saki-nami defeated Rika Tatsumi with the Two Step Face Kick (12:23).
5. Yuu & Syoko Nakajima defeated Yuka Sakazaki & Reika Saiki when Nakajima pinned Saiki with the Northern Lights Suplex (15:19).

After an 8 month absence, Yuka Sakazaki returned to Tokyo Joshi Pro to have her preparation match with Yuu. But the result involved the other big match up for the 4th June show. Syoko Nakajima avoided Reika Saiki’s Tower Bridge and pinned her with the Northern Lights Suplex. After the match Nakajima told Saiki that next time she will beat her on her own. Yuu welcomed Sakazaki back but said she will successfully defend the TOKYO Princess Of Princess Title against her.

Rika Tatsumi kept her promise and brought a doctor to inspect Martha’s true identity. But it wasn’t just any doctor, it was Masayuki Hayashi! Dr. Hayashi is one of the most famous ring doctors in pro wrestling, mostly known for his appearances in New Japan. Despite Saki-nami’s protests, Dr. Hayashi dragged Martha backstage while the match began. They reappeared late in the match to announce the medical results. Hayashi concluded that Martha is indeed an 8 year old girl. Foul play was considered then proven when Dr. Hayashi blinded Tatsumi with powder after the referee was knocked down. Saki-nami hit the Two Step Face Kick to steal the victory then repeated Dr. Hayashi’s results to boos. Tatsumi complained about Dr. Hayashi’s betrayal and challenged Saki to another match on 4th June. Saki would only accept if the Dragon Bombers would split up when they lose. Tatsumi fired back demanding SIN Biishiki-gun to dissolve if the Bombers win. Saki accepted and offered Dr. Hayashi to accompany her for the match. He seemed rather enamored with her so it looks like that’s a yes. In a backstage interview Dr. Hayashi admitted he had doubts over what Martha was. He originally thought Martha was a 3 year old girl… Meanwhile the Dragon Bombers are determined not to lose because they have a T-shirt going on sale soon and disbanding would cancel that product.

Azusa Takigawa announced she will be bringing back her “legendary” underground idol unit Aime on 4th June. The unit was formed 10 years ago and consisted only of Takigawa and Shuko Matsuda. Their first and only single was called “Summer Mode ☆”. Takigawa is resurrecting Aime because she wants to show Itoh Maki who the real top idol in Tokyo Joshi is.

Nonoko carried an issue of Tokyo Sports newspaper in her hands during the 3 Way Match. She ended up wearing it over her neck and shoulders to mock Yuna Manase because Manase hesitated to do anything that would damage the paper. What Nonoko didn’t expect was for Maho Kurone to attack her from behind and tear the paper off her. Manase then hit the Neck Screw on Nonoko to win the match. Nonoko still thinks she deserves to be Miss Tokyo Sports instead of Manase. She accused Manase of having fake boobs and challenged her to compare their bust measurements at Toyko Sports HQ.

Daisuke Sasaki came up with a match idea for his DDT Extreme Title defence but got drunk afterwords and forgot about it.

GANBARE☆WRESTLING “NISHI E HIGASHI E 2017”, 31/05/2017
Shin-Kiba 1st RING

1. Ganbare☆Joshi Wrestler I Debut Match: Ganbare☆Joshi Wrestler I Vs Kaori Yoneyama
2. There Is No Choice But To Do! There Is No Choice But To Die! Decisive Battle!: Shuichiro Katsumura Vs Ganbare The Great
3. When It Is A Match! Show Me Ganbare Soul!: Ken Ohka & Gota Ihashi Vs Kenso Ohka & KAZMA SAKAMOTO

Ganbare☆Wrestling is attempting to bring back its Ganbare☆Joshi brand. The joshi project came about for a show two years ago but nothing had been done with it since. After witnessing female shootboxers from around the world at the RIZIN Martial Arts EXPO, Ganpuro was inspired to bring the project back. This time Ganbare☆Joshi will be built around a brand new masked wrestler Ken Ohka is raising from scratch. The wrestler is actually Haruka Kato and she even admits as such but she is willing to reinvent herself. Her dream is to wrestle overseas and she hopes this experiment will help her achieve it. She hopes her new name will be something world class like Asuka. Her “debut” match will be against Kaori Yoneyama.

More details on the first Ganbare☆Climax emerged today. It will be a 16 man tournament open to both domestic and foreign wrestlers. Several Ganpuro wrestlers will participate but they will also be looking out for strong talent to fill in the remaining spots. It is a complete coincidence that a tournament of this calibur is taking place in Tokyo on the 11th, 12th and 13th August. Nope, no attempt at riding on another tournament’s coat tails here. None at all. Ken Ohka chose this date only because he wants to have wrestling on in the summer and the Climax refers to the end of summer. Nothing else!

TOKYO JOSHI PRO “GIRL’S FIGHT OUT #4” Results

May 8, 2017

TOKYO JOSHI PRO “GIRL’S FIGHT OUT #4”, 07/05/2017
Tokyo BASEMENT MON☆STAR
150 Fans – Super No Vacancy Full House

1. Mizuki defeated Azusa Takigawa with the Cutie Special (8:21).
2. 3 Way Match: Nonoko defeated Yuna Manase and Marika Kobashi when Nonoko pinned Kobashi with the Pai Fly Flow (8:51).
3. SIN Biishiki-gun Vs Dragon Bombers: Saki-nami & Martha defeated Rika Tatsumi & Maho Kurone when Saki-nami submitted Tatsumi with the Foot Choke (10:11).
4. Mil Clown Goodbye Match: Mil Clown, Miyu Yamashita & Reika Saiki defeated Yuu, Syoko Nakajima & Nodoka-oneesan when Saiki submitted Nodoka with the Tower Bridge (11:07).

Even though today was Mil Clown’s last match in Tokyo Joshi Pro before going home, Reika Saiki stole some of the thunder by winning the main event for her team. Saiki then said she will be facing Syoko Nakajima one on one for the first time on 4th June. Kumaun gave a goodbye speech on behalf of Clown. She was very shy when she came to Earth but everyone in Tokyo Joshi were so friendly that her shyness went away. She is very happy that her twin sister Yuka Sakazaki will be coming back to a place as nice as Tokyo Joshi and Earth in general.

Nonoko taunted her opponents with her body more so than usual during the 3 Way Match. It turns out she has a chip on her shoulder with Yuna Manase. After pinning Marika Kobashi to win the match, Nonoko asked for a singles match with Manase. She was declined but Nonoko then suggested Manase put her Miss Tokyo Sports Award on the line. Nonoko thinks she should have been given that award ages ago. Manase accepted the challenge and guarantees she won’t lose.

Martha was nowhere to be seen for the start of the SIN Biishiki-gun Vs Dragon Bombers match. Saki-nami was temporarily left to fight on her own and the numbers game almost left her for dead. Martha eventually appeared and handed Saki a handwritten note after fighting off the Bombers. Saki later tapped out Rika Tatsumi with the Foot Choke to continue SIN Biishiki-gun’s winning streak over their enemies. After the match Saki claimed the note given to her was a family register that proved Martha is a girl and not a man in disguise. But before she could read it, Tatsumi grabbed it off her and gave it to Kurone to eat. Tatsumi said she was going to bring a doctor to the next Tokyo Joshi show in Saitama. She will make the doctor examine Martha and prove it is a man. Saki became upset over the trauma Martha must be suffering and challenged Tatsumi to a singles match at the Saitama show.

Azusa Takigawa took a break mid-match to quiz Mizuki about Itoh Maki. It turned out to be a ruse so Takigawa could attack Mizuki with her guard down. Mizuki recovered and countered a Diving Cross Body into the Cutie Special for the flash three count.

Takayama was originally going to cash in his Right To Challenge Contract for a KO-D Openweight Title shot on this show. But his injury resulted in him losing to Yasu Urano by TKO. Urano was given the RTC contract because of this. I’m probably jumping the gun but Urano did give a big hint that he will cash in on the show instead of Takayama.

TOKYO JOSHI PRO “AT THIS TIME, GET EXCITED IN OSAKA!” Results

April 30, 2017

TOKYO JOSHI PRO “AT THIS TIME, GET EXCITED IN OSAKA!”, 30/04/2017
Osaka Hirano Community Hall
307 Fans – Super No Vacancy

1. Reika Saiki & Marika Kobashi defeated Itoh Maki & Mizuki when Saiki submitted Maki with the Tower Bridge (11:36).
2. Yuna Manase defeated Azusa Takigawa with the Kakato Drop (9:36).
3. Miyu Yamashita defeated Nonoko with the Crash Rabbit Heat (7:44).
4. SIN Biishiki-gun Vs Dragon Bombers – No Countout Rules: Saki-nami & Martha defeated Rika Tatsumi & Maho Kurone when Martha pinned Kurone with a School Boy (16:04).
5. Syoko Nakajima & Mil Clown defeated Yuu & Nodoka-oneesan when Clown pinned Nodoka with the Mil Clutch α (11:44).

According to Kumaun, Mil Clown was happy to get the pinfall a tough but fun main event. Syoko Nakajima noticed that Tokyo Joshi Pro drew its largest crowd yet in Osaka. She feels the company has growing momentum and it encourages her to work harder.

Martha had to get over her fear of Maho Kurone to win the No Countout Match for SIN Biishiki-gun. She brought her mop into the ring but was stopped by the referee. Kurone got involved in the ruckus and the ref ended up getting knocked down. Martha then wiped the mop against Kurone’s face. Rika Tatsumi stopped Martha with a Hip Attack but Saki-nami then brought Tatsumi out of the ring. Martha then rolled over Kurone for the three count. Saki told Tatsumi that she is tired of seeing her face and ugly claws so she was done with her. Tatsumi said this wasn’t the end and something had been bothering her throughout the match. She thinks Martha is actually a man dressed as a maid and shouldn’t be wrestling in Tokyo Joshi! Saki was shocked at the accusation and assured everyone that Martha’s is genuinely an 8 year old girl. Tatsumi promised to uncover Martha’s real identity.

In a throwback to one of the earlier big feuds in Tokyo Joshi, Miyu Yamashita defeated Nonoko. It was a battle between Yamashita’s kicks and Nonoko’s bust, Yamashita proved that she has transformed into a much stronger fighter since their early bouts. She was able to lift Nonoko up for the Attitude Adjustment then the Crash Rabbit Heat was all she wrote.

Azusa Takigawa acted like her match with Yuna Manase was actually an exam to determine if Manase will be accepted into Konkatsu-gun. Her questions about Manase’s relationship status only made the situation between the two colder. When they got back to wrestling, Manase came out on top.

Itoh Maki blamed Mizuki for their loss to Reika Saiki & Marika Kobashi and was angry at her for not helping when she was needed. As Itoh Respect Army member #001, Mizuki got back on Maki’s good side be leading her fan chants after the match. The chants are all about how cute Maki is.

Before intermission Maki asked anyone to challenge her to a match at Shinjuku FACE on 4th June. Takigawa took her up on the offer but Maki hated the idea. She doesn’t want to fight someone weak like Takigawa. Takigawa snapped back that she is Maki’s senior and she has done underground idol work back when Maki was in elementary school. So Maki better show her some respect!


Yasu Urano Becomes A Freelancer, Golden Week Schedule, Ganpuro Nonsense

April 28, 2017

Yasu Urano announced yesterday that he will no longer be affiliated with DDT and will be going freelance at the end of May. Urano has been wrestling for 17 years and has been with DDT for the last ten. He wants to expand his horizons with the remaining time he has left as a wrestler. He has no concrete plan for the future but there are many wrestlers out there that he has never fought before. Sanshiro Takagi encouraged him to consider wrestling abroad. He also suggested Urano to set up his own group and call it either Socrates or Wrestle Socrates because Urano is a wrestling philosopher. Urano had already gone over his decision with the rest of Smile Squash before going public. HARASHIMA didn’t believe him the first time he was told. The second time Urano told him he assured that he wasn’t quitting pro wrestling. As for Soma Takao, Urano didn’t know what to tell him so he just sent him a LINE message saying “Sorry”. He will still be a part of Smile Squash until he goes freelance but what will happen to that relationship afterwards is anyone’s guess. Urano still intends to make appearances for DDT here and there. He confirmed that he will a part of “RYOGOKU PETER PAN 2017” on 20th August.

6. BASARA Three Major Special Single Match: Yusuke Kubo Vs Dick Togo
7. BASARA Three Major Special Single Match: Isami Kodaka Vs Yuji Okabayashi
8. Union MAX Title – BASARA Three Major Special Single Match: Trans-Am ★ Ryuichi (c) Vs Ryota Nakatsu

Trans-Am ★ Ryuichi is boasting of his abilities with his clear, easy to understand English spoken in an obviously American accent. He call himself the best stripper and best wrestler in the world with a perfect body that Ryota Nakatsu cannot beat. Nakatsu doesn’t believe a word that comes out of Ryuichi’s mouth. He is convinced it is really Ryuichi Kawamura playing a character. Regardless it is Nakatsu’s desire to win the Union MAX Title that drives him. He watched the belt be defended in Union Pro but never progressed far enough to challenge for the title before Union closed down.

Isami Kodaka has two matches to prepare for on the show. He will be the first opponent for the debuting rookie Takato Nakano. Then later in the show he faces the Big Japan golem Yuji Okabayashi in a first time singles match. When thinking up strategies for the match Kodaka came to the conclusion that it will be impossible to beat Okabayashi in a straightforward wrestling match. With that said he is still practicing a lot of different ideas to try and win.

The Japan Vs America rivalry continues further down the card. Ryuichi Sekine doesn’t care if the political relationship between the two countries is currently nice and friendly. He thinks his 6-Man Tag match against the Trans-Am ★ Family will be the biggest fight of the century. He wants to this match to show all the great things about the Japanese. Trans-Am ★ Hiroshi responded that he loves Japan. He loves the beautiful scenery, the delicious food, the pretty women in kimonos and Tokyo Disneyland. The only thing he does not like about Japan are three particular people: Masamune, Ryuichi Sekine & Fuminori Abe! Japan can improve as a country if those three people learn to speak English. So Hiroshi asked for the match to be a True Patriotic Pinfall match. The match can only be won by pinfall and the wrestlers have to cover their opponent with their country’s flag on top of them. Sekine is against the stipulation because his finisher is a submission move. The rule may also backfire on the Trans-Am ★ Family if the rumour that Trans-Am ★ Tanaka is really submission specialist Minoru Tanaka turns out to be true.

Ken Ohka has confirmed that if he loses the Independent World Jr. Heavyweight Title to Maryama then there will not be a title rematch on that date.

During the press conference to promote Ganpuro’s upcoming events, Minoru Fujita briefly dropped by to give Ohka a gift he bought in Shinjuku.

Yumehito Imanari is training for the Double Sweet Death Match by eating a very sweet cinnamon roll he purchased last week. The downside to this is the roll is already a bit mouldy.
