TOKYO JOSHI PRO “TOKYO PRINCESS CUP OPENING ROUND” Results

May 25, 2019

TOKYO JOSHI PRO “TOKYO PRINCESS CUP OPENING ROUND”, 25/05/2019
Kitazawa Town Hall
294 Fans – Super No Vacancy

1. Raku, Mina Shirakawa & Mirai Maiumi defeated Yuna Manase, Pom Harajuku & Mahiro Kiryu when Shirakawa pinned Kiryu with the Implant DDT (9:10).
2. Sakisama & Misao defeated Mizuki & YUMI when Sakisama submitted YUMI with the Versailles Foot Choke (11:12).
3. Miyu Yamashita & Reika Saiki defeated Marika Kobashi & Yuki Aino by TKO when Yamashita used the Modified Cobra Clutch on Kobashi (12:52).
4. Tokyo Princess Cup – Round 1: Rika Tatsumi defeated Himawari Unagi with the Missile Hips (7:52).
5. Tokyo Princess Cup – Round 1: Miu Watanabe defeated Nodoka Tenma with the Tear Drop (7:56).
6. Tokyo Princess Cup – Round 1: Natsumi Maki defeated Hikari Noa with a German Suplex (10:15).
7. Tokyo Princess Cup – Round 1: Shoko Nakajima defeated Yuki Kamifuku with the Northern Lights Suplex (12:05).

Yuki Kamifuku pulled in Daisuke Kiso to prevent Shoko Nakajima from hitting the Northern Lights Suplex. In the middle of this fracas, Nakajima went for a Dropkick but Kiso took the hit instead of Kamifuku. The absence of a referee gave Kamifuku a chance to win but Nakajima was able to recover. Kamifuku had some fight left when she kicked out of the Northern Lights but one more use of the move eliminated her from the Tokyo Princess Cup. Nakajima admitted this turned into a dangerous match and it is becoming more difficult to win the tournament. She wants to win the Princess Cup while holding the TOKYO Princess Title because it hasn’t been done before.

There were hugs and smiles from Pandemic Boo-Boo after their match so Hikari Noa has no hard feelings over losing to Natsumi Maki. Maki hopes that this will become a meaningful match for Noa.

We only had to wait until the second match for the big upset of the tournament. Miu Watanabe overcame the odds to beat Nodoka Tenma! She escaped from the Killswitch and struck Tenma with the Laser Beam Punch. Watanabe then used a spinning version of the Flapjack called the Tear Drop to get the win. Watanabe wanted to go all out today to make up for missing last year’s Princess Cup.

Well so much for that fan vote. Himawari Unagi was the first woman eliminated from the tournament after a loss to Rika Tatsumi. Unagi feels regret over the result not just for her but also her generation of Tokyo Joshi Pro wrestlers. She thinks this class of five women are the most in-sync amongst the roster so she was representing them just as much as herself. For Tatsumi the win was just what she needed for a confidence boost.

Marika Kobashi was given a harsh looking farewell from Tokyo Joshi when Miyu Yamashita defeated her with the Modified Cobra Clutch. But that was the kind of treatment Kobashi wanted for her final match as a high school student. She thanked Yamashita and Reika Saiki for everything they’ve done for her even though her neck was left feeling sore. When her school exams are done she will prepare her body and mind for her return to Tokyo Joshi.

NEO Bishiiki-gun tried to make Mizuki see their way of life during their tag match. When Misao had YUMI held in a rest hold, Sakisama cut off Mizuki by putting her in a ballroom dance pose like she used to do with Azusa Christie. Mizuki said she hated it and later refused Misao’s request to “build a new world together.” Sakisama said backstage that Mizuki would look good in black and white. She promised to take away the TOKYO Princess Tag Team Titles from Mizuki as well as her mind and her heart!

It was announced that the music video for “Upper Kick!” by the Up Up Girls (Pro Wrestling) is approaching 10,000 views on Youtube. The Up Up Girls are asking their fans to watch the video 30 times a day so it can surpass that number.

For Pinano Pipipipi’s graduation match, a special Battle Royal was put together. Wrestlers would exit from the match if they were thrown over the top rope out of the ring or if they got a win inside the ring. The purpose was not so much to find a definitive winner but to give Pinano one big chance to beat somebody before her wrestling career ends. Many of the women were upset to say goodbye to their friend but they wrestled on. Even Misao showed a sign of her former self by using the Hero Correction System on Pinano when Pinano pleaded her to do it. In the end Pinano wasn’t able to beat anybody. Hikari Noa was the last to pin her, telling Pinano she loved her before doing the Uranage.

For the graduation ceremony Pinano was handed flowers from all of the Tokyo Joshi Pro roster. The rest of the Up Up Girls (Pro Wrestling) joined her for one last performance of “Upper Kick”. Pinano said for a year and a half she’s been a part of this and she’s made so many wonderful friends. She will learn from this experience to make her next life enjoyable.

TOKYO JOSHI PRO “SPRING TOUR ’19 ~ READY SET, GO!” Results

March 23, 2019

TOKYO JOSHI PRO “SPRING TOUR ’19 ~ READY SET, GO!”, 23/03/2019
Tokyo Itabashi Green Hall
260 Fans – Super No Vacancy Full House

1. Hikari Noa defeated Pinano Pipipipi with the Modified Ground Cobra Twist (6:44).
2. 3 Way Match: Shoko Nakajima defeated Mina Shirakawa and Pom Harajuku when Nakajima pinned Shirakawa with a Crushed Oklahima Roll (9:37).
3. Miyu Yamashita & YUMI defeated Himawari Unagi & Mahiro Kiryu when Yamashita submitted Unagi with the Modified Cobra Clutch (11:40).
4. Natsumi Maki, Nodoka Tenma & Haruna Neko defeated Rika Tatsumi, Marika Kobashi & Raku when Maki pinned Raku with the Backlash (9:34).
5. Sakisama & Misao defeated Yuki Aino & Miu Watanabe when Misao pinned Watanabe with the Dies Irae (14:38).
6. TOKYO Princess Tag Team Titles: Yuka Sakazaki & Mizuki (c) defeated Yuna Manase & Yuki Kamifuku when Sakazaki pinned Kamifuku with the Magical Magical Girl Splash (13:12).
*V5 for the Magical Sugar Rabbits.

The TOKYO Princess Tag Team Titles match took an unusual turn when Yuki Kamifuku disappeared and was replaced by a Good Looking Guy. The appearance of this Good Looking Guy motivated Yuna Manase until the Magical Sugar Rabbits pulled off the Guy’s jacket and sunglasses to reveal it was just Kamifuku in disguise. The Rabbits flattened the Kano Sisters with a Double Cross Body then Mizuki got Manase out of the ring. Kamifuku tried to fight back against Kamifuku but her Fame Asser was countered into into the Magical Merry Go Round. Yuka Sakazaki then hit the Magical Magical Girl Splash to win the match. The champions admitted today turned out to be a risky defence because their usual wrestling pace was broken by their challengers.

Misao is now winning matches but she isn’t satisfied. She feels miserable and curses her weakness. Sakisama says everyone has a destiny when they are born. Sakisama was born to be loved and convey beauty to the world. Others are born to give her a sense of superiority. Misao said they do not need weeds in this beautiful world for Sakisama.

Rika Tatsumi started her match wanting to do the Good Night Express instead of Raku. Everyone else even Tatsumi’s tag partners decided to do the Good Night Express on Tatsumi instead.

Pom Harajuku nearly won the 3 Way Match by pulling off a favourite trick of mine on her opponents. When Shoko Nakajima and Mina Shirakawa were battling over a Backslide Pin spot, Harajuku trip both of them as their arms were locked up and rolled the both of them onto their shoulders for a double pin. Both kicked out, Nakajima hit Harajuku with the 619, Shirakawa tried to give Nakajima an Oklahoma Roll but it was blocked and Nakajima pressed down on her to get the three count. Nakajima was frustrated over the result.

Hikari Noa and Pinano Pipipipi shared a bottle of tea together in the ring before their match as a sign of a clean fight. Noa instead knocked the bottle into Pinano and started the match.

NEO Biishiki-gun again interrupted the Up Up Girls (Pro Wrestling) performance at the start of the show.

It was announced that Tokyo Joshi Pro’s next show at Korakuen Hall after 3rd May will take place on 25th August. This is following the same Korakuen schedule from last year.

Thunder Rosa will make her Tokyo Joshi debut on 3rd May.


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.


TOKYO JOSHI PRO “UP UP GIRLS (PRO WRESTLING) PRO WRESTLING WOMEN’S FESTIVAL” Results

December 31, 2018

TOKYO JOSHI PRO “UP UP GIRLS (PRO WRESTLING) PRO WRESTLING WOMEN’S FESTIVAL”, 31/12/2018
Tokyo Shibuya GARRET
??? Fans

1. Makoto Oishi & Hyper Misao defeated Pipipipi Pinano & Raku when Oishi pinned Raku with an Inside Cradle (?:??).
2. Miyu Yamashita & Shoko Nakajima defeated Hikari Noa & Miu Watanabe when Yamashita pinned Noa with a Backspin Kick (?:??).

The Up Up Girls (Pro Wrestling) took the next step in their pro wrestling careers by getting new ring names and new looks to go with them. Their reintroduction event in Shibuya GARRET began with the unit in their old costumes performing their “Upper Kick!” song with rock and rap variations mixed into the performance. When that was done it was on to the mat wrestling matches.

First up was Hinano & Raku against the Up Up Girls (Fake) duo of Makoto Oishi & Hyper Misao. Hinano is now called Pinano Pipipipi and she wears a multicoloured outfit with tassels. She is aware that her new name is a lot more sillier than the others. Pinano also has a new move called the Pipipipi Punch. Raku is keeping her name but it is now written in hiragana (らく) when before it was written in katakana (ラク). She’s also keeping the colour yellow for her new costume and still uses the Good Night Express. Unfortunately Oishi blocked Raku’s Brainstorm Chop, spat at her as a distraction and rolled her into a Cradle for the three count. Oishi wanted to attack his opponents after the match but Misao stood in his way to defend them. Misao told Pinano & Raku that their new costumes are cool then asked them to continue shining as wrestling idols. She’d like them to be ready for the next time the two rival groups face each other.

The other match was Hikari & Miu against Miyu Yamashita & Shoko Nakajima. Hikari is now Hikari Noa and Miu is now Miu Watanabe. They launched a surprise attack on their opponents to begin the match but the tables quickly turned against them. Noa’s power came into play and along with Watanabe they put Nakajima & Yamashita in a Canadian Backbreaker and a Cobra Twist respectfully. Noa then stood on a chair to give Yamashita a Missile Kick. Yamashita recovered though and pinned Noa with a Backspin Kick.

The show ended with the Up Up Girls performing “Upper Kick!” again and then debuting their new song “Upper Chop!”
