The recovery time is two months so she is scheduled to return to the ring on the 3rd May Tokyo Joshi Pro show at Korakuen Hall.

BASARA “VAJRA 61 ~SEISHUN SUIKODEN~”, 03/03/2018

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.

February 18, 2018

TOKYO JOSHI PRO “LET’S GO! GO! IF YOU GO! WHEN YOU GO! IF YOU GET LOST JUST GO TO SHINKIBA!”, 18/02/2018
Shin-Kiba 1st RING
312 Fans – Super No Vacancy

1. Hikari defeated Miu with a Japanese Leg Roll Clutch (4:42).
2. Hyper Misao defeated Yuki Kamifuku with the Hyper Mi Returns (6:26).
3. Rika Tatsumi, Maho Kurone & Hinano defeated Syoko Nakajima, Yuu & Raku when Kurone pinned Nakajima with the Ouroboros (9:37).
4. Saki-sama defeated Marika Kobashi with the Versailles Foot Choke (10:06).
5. Azusa Christie defeated Nodoka-oneesan with the Christie Agape (8:22).
6. Reika Saiki & Yuka Sakazaki defeated Maki Ito & Mizuki when Saiki pinned Ito with the Jackhammer (12:44).
7. TOKYO Princess Of Princess Title: Miyu Yamashita (c) defeated Yuna Manase with the Crash Rabbit Heat (13:31).
*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.

TOKYO JOSHI PRO “LET’S GO! GO! IF YOU GO! WHEN YOU GO! IF YOU GET LOST JUST GO TO NAGOYA!”, 12/02/2018
Nagoya City Robashi Sports Center Kendo Area
294 Fans – Super No Vacancy

1. Raku & Miu defeated Hikari & Hinano when Miu submitted Hinano with the Canadian Backbreaker (4:50).
2. Nodoka-oneesan defeated Marika Kobashi with the WAR Special (5:56).
3. Rika Tatsumi & Maho Kurone defeated Mizuki & Hyper Misao when Tatsumi pinned Misao with the Missile Hips (10:10).
4. Saki-sama & Azusa Christie defeated Yuu & Yuki Kamifuku when Saki-sama submitted Kamifuku with the Versailles Foot Choke (12:38).
5. Yuka Sakazaki defeated Samara with the Magical Girl Splash (8:24).
6. Syoko Nakajima & Yuna Manase defeated Miyu Yamashita & Maki Ito when Manase pinned Ito with the Kakato Drop (15:16).

Yuna Manase felt “amazingly happy” after winning the main event and getting to do the show closing speech for the first time. She credited Syoko Nakajima for keeping her safe throughout the match, which allowed her to work hard. They closed out the show by taking suggestions from the audience for delicious food to eat in Nagoya. They decided on miso cutlet, chicken wings and deep fried shrimp.

Yuka Sakazaki did the Magical Girl Splash twice to beat Samara. Sakazaki didn’t hit the move properly the first time so took the risk to do it again. It paid off.

Today’s show was the first time Saki-sama has ever visited Nagoya. After she and Azusa Christie won their match, Saki-sama told everyone she wanted to buy a Golden Shachihoko statue. Christie promised she would schedule an appointment with the governor of Nagoya at once to do that. When that is done they can then focus their attention to the next Tokyo Joshi Pro show in Shinkiba. Saki said NEO Biishiki-gun will successfully defend the TOKYO Princess Tag Team Titles against the blue and black pigs that make up the BRAVE☆MATES at that show. Christie corrected Saki by telling her the title match is taking place in Seijo a few weeks later. Some of the fans laughed at Saki’s mistake and that made Christie angry. Christie called them rude and NEO Biishiki-gun left the ring.

Even though Hyper Misao was on the opposite team as Rika Tatsumi, Misao wanted to help Tatsumi with her crush on Mizuki. First, they want to get #好きです辰巳リカ trending on Twitter (I think it means “I Like Rika Tatsumi”) She encouraged Tatsumi to start the match with Mizuki but she was too smitten to do anything until Mizuki and Maho Kurone got the match going. Tatsumi won the match by pinning Misao but she chased after Mizuki when it was over.

Since Valentine’s Day is coming up, Nodoka-oneesan asked if anybody in the audience was already gifted with chocolate this week. When some people raised their hands, Nodoka told them she loves white chocolate and will be waiting to get some from them.

6. Miyu Yamashita & Maki Ito Vs Syoko Nakajima & Yuna Manase

Rika Tatsumi made some news last Thursday during DDT’s segment on the AbemaTV show “The NIGHT”. During a conversation between the hosts and guests, Tatsumi brought up a subject to Danshoku Dino and Sanshiro Takagi that had been bothering her for a while. She fancies Mizuki (calls her cute as a rabbit) but can’t do anything about it because of the Forbidden Three rules used for Tokyo Joshi wrestlers. She thinks that is unfair because the rule in question is “No relationships with men” and her target is a woman. She put Takagi on the spot to clarify the rule. Takagi described this moment as a new culture starting to grow. He suggested they invite Mizuki to the show first to get her opinion before he makes a decision. A viewer vote was set up during the show and 82.1% voted in support of Tatsumi. She asked the fans to support her way of love. Don’t know if this will make the tag team match awkward or not since Tatsumi and Mizuki will have to wrestle each other at some point during it.

Yuna Manase will be fighting for both herself and the recently graduated Nonoko in the main event. She promised she will strengthen her chest to become powerful weapons like Nonoko’s were. Miyu Yamashita knows too well how often Nonoko used her own breasts to block kicks. She warned Manase she is prepared for whatever defence will be placed before her.

Reika Saiki wrestles her first match since losing the TOKYO Princess Title. She wanted a match against the Ito Respect Army because they defeated her & Yamashita in the TOKYO Princess Tag Team Titles Tournament last year. Avenging that defeat is her first step towards regaining the TOKYO Princess Title.

*Miracle Apricots fail in V3. NEO Biishiki-gun becomes the 2nd TOKYO Princess Tag Team Champions!

NEO Biishiki-gun won the TOKYO Princess Tag Team Titles but that was not enough to satisfy Saki-sama. She attacked Yuka Sakazaki after the match and complained that the title belts are worthless compared to the beauty and strength of NEO Biishiki-gun. When she threw the belts aside, Yuu & Nodoka-oneesan entered the ring to confront her. Saki-sama called them pigs but Nodoka said pigs are stronger than the doll store clerks you find in Harajuku. The BRAVE☆MATES threw out a challenge for the belts and Saki-sama agreed to having the match in Nagoya.

Nonoko’s final match in Tokyo Joshi Pro ends with a win over Maki Ito. Nonoko’s chest guarded her from Ito’s Headbutts until Nonoko was able to hit the Pai Fly Flow for the pin. For her graduation ceremony she received gifts and bouquets from Marika Kobashi, Yuna Manase, Yuu and Rika Tatsumi. Tatsumi also prepared a speech for Nonoko, talking about how close together their debuts were (one month apart) and also how they lived together for a while. Tatsumi calls Nonoko an indispensable part of Tokyo Joshi and the place will be lonelier without her. Tatsumi will support whatever activity Nonoko will move onto next and hopefully in return Nonoko will make her a delicious meal again. Nonoko said she never found a place like Tokyo Joshi that let her celebrate life so much. Last year she read an article in Zexy magazine about a bride talking about how wonderful her wedding was. Today Nonoko feels the same way. There are so many things she learned here and everyone has become family to her, even her rivals. Nonoko received her paper tape and celebrated her graduation when Azusa Christie appeared. Christie handed her one last bouquet and left before the commemorative group photo was taken.

Hyper Misao came up with an idea to help Yuna Manase prepare for her title match against Miyu Yamashita. Misao brought along a homemade cardboard championship and pretended to be Yamashita so Manase could learn how to fight her. The problem was Misao didn’t know how to act like Yamashita and couldn’t do her moves properly. Manase was able to beat her anyway and was rewarded with the cardboard belt.

7. D-King Grand Prix – Final: HARASHIMA Vs Shuji Ishikawa

We’ve had some time to rest but this weekend brings us the finale of the 2018 D-King Grand Prix. I think the tournament has been a success and the match quality has drawn in some new eyes to DDT this month so hopefully this will stick around as an annual tournament. Scheduling it after Wrestle Kingdom is mostly a good idea. The wrestling scene over in Japan calms down a little when that show is over so the space is there to put on a bunch of easy to watch straightforward shows. Maybe just don’t run three to four Korakuen Hall shows in a row beforehand. That was overkill and the attendance numbers showed. Anyway, let’s get to the final.

HARASHIMA and Shuji Ishikawa have known each other for a long time. They represent the same generation of DDT wrestlers and they’ve beaten each other to win the KO-D Openweight Championship. No matter how far they split off and drift apart, their paths will always meet again inside the DDT ring. Ishikawa’s goal for 2018 is to beat his 2017 accomplishments and winning the D-King is exactly what he needs to start that plan. HARASHIMA wants to avenge his losses to the champion Konosuke Takeshita but he is putting all of his attention into beating Ishikawa first. Ishikawa thinks that winning the tournament and then going on to win the championship at Sumo Hall will raise the value of the Grand Prix. He also thinks his extra experience from wrestling in other companies while HARASHIMA has stayed put inside the DDT walls is the difference maker between them. Ishikawa has the better record against HARASHIMA in singles matches. He has won 3 out of their 4 previous singles matches together. HARASHIMA won their last match back in December 2016. Plus he also beat him one time as HERO! way back in 2003, although he broke his foot during the match.

If Ishikawa wins he wants to invest the 1,900,000 yen of the 2,000,000 prize money in bitcoins because it is the fashionable thing to do now. The remaining 100,000 yen will be given to Daisuke Sasaki and Tetsuya Endo. HARASHIMA hasn’t thought about what he would do with the money but the amount on the line does excite him.
