Princess Cup Final 4, Baba Style The Correct Style? Akai Vs Manase, BASARA League

TOKYO JOSHI PRO “THE SKY IS THE LIMIT 2021”, 07/08/2021
Nagoya Civic Gymnasium 3rd Stadium

1. Miyu Yamashita & Yuki Arai Vs Yuki Aino & Moka Miyamoto

Yuki Arai’s first match in Nagoya is a big enough deal to main event the show because Nagoya is the home of SKE48. She will team with her mentor Miyu Yamashita against Yuki Aino & Moka Miyamoto. Another SKE48 member Shiori Aoki will be on commentary for the match.

Maki Itoh suffered a fractured left cheekbone in her Tokyo Princess Cup Quarter Final match. It will take two to four weeks for it to heal but she will definitely wrestle on 14th August. She will miss this Saturday’s show though.

6. Tokyo Princess Cup – Semi Final: Shoko Nakajima Vs Shoko Nakajima
7. Tokyo Princess Cup – Semi Final: Mizuki Vs Maki Itoh

The semi final draw was held and the matchups are confirmed. Itoh is confident she will be fully healed in time to face Mizuki in the main event. Overcoming the pain is what makes Itoh stronger and this is the opponents she wants more than anyone else. Mizuki is aiming for the three-peat and has never lost to Itoh before. Winning this match will give her the confidence she needs to win the final 24 hours later. Miu Watanabe is now four years into her pro wrestling career and has fallen in love with it. She also revealed the idol she looks up to most is Mayu Watanabe from AKB48. Her opponent Shoko Nakajima reaches the final four once again but she isn’t taking it for granted. Tokyo Joshi Pro has grown so much over the years that it motivates her to be the best again.

Yuka Sakazaki has her first match back in Japan since coming home from the latest AEW tour.

A few other return appearances brings the Rika Tatsumi Vs NEO Biishiki-gun feud back to life. Yukio Saint Laurent and Antonio Honda get involved again. The only difference is instead of a zombie we get Pom Harajuku.

7. KO-D Tag Team Titles: Konosuke Takeshita & Shunma Katsumata (c) Vs Jun Akiyama & Yusuke Okada

In a press conference today the participants of both title matches got to speak. The KO-D Tag Team Titles match will be Yusuke Okada’s first championship shot in DDT since he signed with the company. Jun Akiyama is looking forward to teaming with his student and trusts him enough to let him do his stuff. Shunma Katsumata is determined not to lose the titles in his first defence. He also wants to pin Akiyama again like he did at the Ultimate Tag League. His partner Konosuke Takeshita said he will focus on Akiyama because he can rely on Katsumata to win the match if it comes down to him. The match serves as a clash of different wrestling styles and philosophies. Takeshita says there is no correct answer for pro wrestling that applies to everybody. Akiyama disagrees because he thinks the Giant Baba style that he learned has all of the right answers. Baba’s way is the correct way and the proof is in Akiyama being the current KO-D Openweight Champion.

The Olympic atmosphere in Japan has inspired Shinya Aoki to defend the DDT Extreme Title against MAO in a Hardcore Judo match. Aoki and MAO aren’t sure themselves what the rules are in a Hardcore Judo match but they are excited to do it.

Voice actor Tetsu Inada will be involved with the Hiragana Muscle shows in September. His work includes shows from the Gundam and Super Robot Wars series. He also voiced MAO in the Kemono Michi anime DDT was involved with back in 2019. That’s not all. He has also been the voice in DDT’s opening videos for the last year.

DDT “TENJIN WARS 2021”, 12/09/2021
Fukuoka Nishitetsu Hall

1. Special Single Match ~ DDT Vs Ganbare☆Joshi Pro Wrestling: Saki Akai Vs Yuna Manase

It is a match Yuna Manase originally wanted at “CYBERFIGHT FESTIVAL 2021” but it never came to be. She wants a singles match against Saki Akai so much she crashed a DDT show to demand it. Akai doesn’t have any strong feelings about her opponent. She remembers the year she debuted people online were hoping the two of them would team together but other than that they are from completely different parts of the wrestling scene. Akai recently wrestled in Ganpro and felt everyone there has passion but it went away very quickly. If Manase’s fire is red then Akai’s fire is blue and that is much more hotter.

TOKYO JOSHI PRO “TJPW INSPIRATION”, 01/07/2021
Shin-Kiba 1st RING
119 Fans – No Vacancy

1. Moka Miyamoto Vs Arisu Endo ended in a Time Limit Draw (15:00).
2. Yuka Sakazaki defeated Suzume with the Magical Merry-Go-Round (9:07).
3. UWF Rules: Miyu Yamashita (1D/2E) defeated Mirai Maiumi (1D/1E) by Knockout with the Skull Kick (11:17).

D = Down
E = Escape/Rope Break

The first “TJPW INSPIRATION” was built around a hardcore match, the second time around was more UWF flavored. Miyu Yamashita and Mirai Maiumi had their go at the combat sport with Yamashita’s karate against Maiumi’s judo. Maiumi used the Lariat for a counter and eventually took the points lead over her opponent. However a rush of kicks from Yamashita turned things around and the Skull Kick resulted in a KO when Maiumi couldn’t answer the 10 count. Yamashita said the UWF Rules are so much fun and she was happy to try them out with Maiumi today.

Yuka Sakazaki defeated Suzume in her last match before trekking off to AEW for a month. Suzume treated this match as vital practice for the Tokyo Princess Cup so even though she lost, she still did her best to learn from it. She wants to have an evolutionary summer while Sakazaki is away in America. Sakazaki was hoping to finally win the Princess Cup this year but she thinks the timing to visit AEW again is fate. Her goal on this excursion is to wrestle on Dynamite and get back at Britt Baker for knocking out her tooth last year.

A chance for Moka Miyamoto and Arisu Endo to get their first singles win ended in a stalemate. After 15 minutes a winner couldn’t be determined. Endo hit the Tsuruga Castle for a nearfall while Miyamoto had Rashomon locked in until the bell rang. Endo is disappointed with the draw but still thinks she had a fun match. Miyamoto didn’t know she was capable to wrestle for 15 minutes. Now that she knows she can do it, she aims last that long win or lose from now on.

1. Maki Itoh & Nodoka Tenma defeated Mirai Maiumi & Kaya Toribami when Itoh submitted Toribami with a Crab Hold (11:32).
2. 3 Way Match: Rika Tatsumi defeated Yuki Kamifuku and Arisu Endo when Tatsumi pinned Endo with a Rotating Leg Fold (7:00).
3. Shoko Nakajima & Moka Miyamoto defeated Miu Watanabe & Yuki Arai when Miyamoto submitted Arai with the Rashomon (10:15).

5. Yuka Sakazaki, Mizuki & Marika Kobashi defeated Hyper Misao, Nao Kakuta & Mahiro Kiryu when Kobashi pinned Kiryu with the Running Bulldog Headlock (10:59).
6. Princess Of Princess Title: Miyu Yamashita (c) defeated Sakisama with the Crash Rabbit Heat (16:27).
*V2 for Miyu Yamashita.

For the first time in their half decade long rivalry, Miyu Yamashita has beaten Sakisama! In the days coming into today’s big main event, Sakisama had gone viral on Twitter with her ability to look elegant while wrestling. So that along with her virtually flawless record against Yamashita had her entering the match with a lot of momentum. However Yamashita matched her kick for kick, getting closer to victory by hitting the Attitude Adjustment from the second rope and also the Crash Rabbit Heat to the back of the head. Sakisama grabbed hold with a Triangle Choke but Yamashita lifted her way free and hit the Skull Kick. The final moments had both strike each other with a High Kick. Sakisama fell down but Yamashita was able to bounce off of the ropes and hit the Crash Rabbit Heat for the three count.

After the match Yamashita said Sakisama is the one opponent who frustrates her more than any other. It took Yamashita putting the Princess Of Princess Title on the line to finally beat her. After all that, today’s first win makes Yamashita very happy indeed. She thanked the fans for supporting her and Maki Itoh for being her second at ringside. As a champion, Yamashita has no limits! Backstage Yamashita said she still hates Sakisama but also wants to fight her again and again. Sakisama also said something similar about the “Pelican” in her brief post-match statement. Yamashita also wants to enter the Tokyo Princess Cup because she still hasn’t won it yet. She wants to be at her best when and win it as the champion. After that she will then know what she wants to do next. It confirms that the next Princess Title match won’t be until after the tournament.

Hyper Misao told everyone her tag team partners Nao Kakuta & Mahiro Kiryu have high social skills because they previously had jobs before becoming pro wrestlers. They wanted to give their business cards to the opposing team to prove this. Of course, this turned out to be a trap for Misao’s team to jump the bell. Marika Kobashi and The Magical Sugar Rabbits immediately turned things around and went on to win.

Raku used a Cross-Arm Backslide Pin to get the upset over Hikari Noa. Raku said she has lost to Noa in Singles matches plenty of times but she wants to challenge her for the International Princess Title! Noa happily accepted the challenge and wants the match to happen in Ryogoku KFC Hall on 7th July. She lost to Raku here today so she may as well defend the title against her in the same venue. Noa warned that she is going to be crazy in the ring because she only just recently watched Jun Kasai’s new documentary.

Today is the first time Moka Miyamoto directly won a match! Her Modified Cobra Twist is now called the Rashomon and she used it to submit Yuki Arai. The name has nothing to do with the famous story, instead it means her first win is like walking straight through a Rashomon gate to enter the big city. At least that’s how I remember it. She said her trainee period lasted a long time because of Covid-19 and she was disappointed she couldn’t get her first win in her first year. But she is still really happy with getting the first win today. Her next goal is to win a singles match. She also looks forward to fighting Arai again. Shoko Nakajima commented that the rise in reliable and enthusiastic juniors in Tokyo Joshi is increasing so she will do her best not to lose against them.

A brief alliance was formed between Yuki Kamifuku & Arisu Endo to gang up on Rika Tatsumi. It became a free for all that ended in a flurry of finishers. Endo gave Tatsumi the Tsuruga Castle Knee Drop across the back of her neck. Kamifuku gave Endo the Famouser but Tatsumi came back to hit her with the Hip Attack. Tatsumi then pinned Endo with a Rotating Leg Fold to survive with the win.

When Kaya Toribami used her agility to avoid Nodoka Tenma’s attacks, Tenma couldn’t help but mumble “cool” out loud.

This morning Tokyo Joshi Pro announced that Yuka Sakazaki will be returning to AEW for an excursion next month. Sakazaki will wrestle her match with Suzume on 1st July in Japan and afterwards will travel to America for a month long stay. It will be Sakazaki’s first time wrestling in USA since February 2020, before the Covid-19 pandemic became global. Due to this absence, Sakazaki will not be entering this year’s Tokyo Princess Cup. Unless there is a change with Japan’s two week self isolation rule over travelling, Sakazaki will not be back in TJPW until after the 7th August show. She is guaranteed to be back wrestling on the 14th August Korakuen Hall show onwards. I figure there might be one or two episodes of “THAT’S J-PW” with her still in it that will air on WRESTLE UNIVERSE while she is gone.

1. Maki Itoh defeated Mahiro Kiryu with the Itoh Deluxe (9:19).
2. 3 Way Match: Hyper Misao defeated Miu Watanabe and Pom Harajuku when Misao pinned Harajuku with a Jackknife Pin (9:50).
3. Mizuki & Marika Kobashi, & Kaya Toribami defeated Mirai Maiumi, Suzume & Arisu Endo when Kobashi submitted Endo with the Front Neck Lock (13:09).
4. Sakisama & Mei Saint-Michel defeated Raku & Moka Miyamoto when Sakisama submitted Miyamoto with the Versailles Foot Choke (13:37).
5. Hikari Noa, Yuki Kamifuku & Yuki Aino defeated Rika Tatsumi, Nao Kakuta & Haruna Neko when Noa submitted Kakuta with the Blizzard Suplex (10:00).
6. Special Tag Match: Miyu Yamashita & Yuka Sakazaki defeated Shoko Nakajima & Nodoka Tenma when Yamashita pinned Tenma with the Skull Kick (13:25).

Two weeks after their hard fought title match at “CYBERFIGHT FESTIVAL 2021”, both Miyu Yamashita and Yuka Sakazaki had to put their differences aside to team together in the main event. There was a little awkwardness at first between them but they gelled together to beat Shoko Nakajima & Nodoka Tenma. Yamashita said she became more confident and stronger after her match with Sakazaki. But Sakazaki brought up that she lost in the Korakuen Hall main event two days ago. Backstage Sakazaki explained her bond with Yamashita was broken after “CYBERFIGHT FESTIVAL 2021”.

Raku was able to sent Mei Saint-Michel by singing her a lullaby while applying a Headlock. She tried the same trick to Sakisama but she shrugged it off… until she fell asleep a few seconds later. Saint-Michel had to use the ring bell to wake her up. Moka Miyamoto got Sakisama in the Modified Manjigatame but Saint-Michel stopped it with a Dropkick and Sakisama trapped her in the Versailles Foot Choke to win.

Hyper Misao heard a rumour that today was the first time Miu Watanabe was going to wrestle in a 3 Way Match. Both Misao and Pom Harajuku have a lot of experience wrestling in 3 Way Matches so they would be happy to guide her through one. Watanabe overpowered her opponents with power spots so they had to work two on one against her. Misao then rolled up Harajuku with a Jackknife for the three count.

1. Nodoka Tenma, Yuki Aino, Raku & Pom Harajuku defeated Suzume, Haruna Neko, Moka Miyamoto & Arisu Endo when Raku pinned Endo with the Doctor Yellow (12:05).
2. Shoko Nakajima defeated Kaya Toribami with the Unmanned Local Train Hold (7:47).
3. Yuki Kamifuku & Nao Kakuta defeated Miu Watanabe & Mahiro Kiryu when Kamifuku pinned Kiryu with the Famouser (11:11).
4. Mirai Maiumi defeated Yuki Arai with the Miramare (12:41).
5. Yuka Sakazaki & Mizuki defeated Rika Tatsumi & Hyper Misao when Sakazaki pinned Misao with the Magical Girl Niwatori Yaro (11:49).
6. International Princess Title: Hikari Noa (c) defeated Marika Kobashi with the Blizzard Suplex (11:13).
*V1 for Hikari Noa.
7. Princess Tag Team Titles: Sakisama & Mei Saint-Michel (c) defeated Miyu Yamashita & Maki Itoh by TKO when Sakisama used the Versailles Foot Choke on Yamashita (19:09).
*V2 for NEO Biishiki-gun.

Miyu Yamashita’s goal of becoming the first Double Princess Champion ends in failure. Even worse is now she may be the one who ends up helping Sakisama achieve it instead! It looked liked 121000000 had NEO Biishiki-gun figured out. Maki Itoh’s hard head took no damage from Mei Saint-Michel’s steel tray. She did some damage with it herself when she used it to amplify a Kokeshi Headbutt. Yamashita made it up to Sakisama’s level and she did the Attitude Adjustment but Saint-Michel broke the count, cut off Yamashita’s attack and hit the Tarte Tatin with her partner’s help. Sakisama took over and applied the Versailles Foot Choke, rendering Yamashita unconscious.

After the match, Saint-Michel said the rose of victory is beautiful today. She asked Sakisama if the result means she will take the Princess Of Princess Title home with her because the “pelican” Yamashita has been calling herself the strongest in the company and Sakisama just beat her. Itoh also asked Yamashita if she was going to do anything because the ace and champion of Tokyo Joshi Pro shouldn’t be the one losing. Sakisama told Itoh to shut up and said she isn’t interested in championships. However, Yamashita seems to care a lot about the Princess Title so taking it from her just to make her more upset is a very tempting idea. Yamashita accepted the challenge and the match is booked for 26th June at Ryogoku KFC Hall. Saint-Michel cheered on her master to win and Sakisama promised to dye the white belt into her colour of roses.

Hikari Noa survived a close call to mark her first International Princess Title defence. Marika Kobashi entered the match with a new outfit and a determination to win even if it meant taking the fight outside the ring. Her focus was on the Front Neck Lock and Standing Guillotine Leg Drop but Noa’s use of the Blizzard Suplex won out in the end. Backstage Noa called Kobashi and the Gal culture she loves strong. She isn’t going to visit Shibuya any time soon because of that. It’s scary stuff but beating the scary stuff means Noa has nothing to fear for what’s next. She still wants to do a proper death match for example and the championship doesn’t need to be involved if that is the hold up. Kobashi blamed the loss on the lack of Gals in the room supporting her with good vibes.

It is well known by now how much Rika Tatsumi likes Mizuki. According to Hyper Misao this was a problem she felt the need to fix. So she invented a piece of headgear for Tatsumi to wear called the Kimochi Ayatsu Rail Z. According to Tatsumi it converts her love for Mizuki into love for Misao. In reality it allowed Misao to make Tatsumi do whatever she wanted including attack Mizuki without hesitation. The Magical Sugar Rabbits got to remove the headgear and the match went on as normal and Yuka Sakazaki picked up the win. Misao held the remains of the headgear backstage and said the invention is 5 years of her life down the drain.

Yuki Arai had new entrance music for her first singles match. She got to hit Mirai Maiumi with the Finally Axe Kick but couldn’t pin her quick enough to win. She did get very close to win when she ducked a Lariat and used a Backslide Pin for a nearfall. Another attempt at the move was avoided and Maiumi smashed her with a Lariat. She then got the SKE48 star to submit to the Miramare. At least Arai got an MSS48 t-shirt out of it. Maiumi announced backstage that Arai and Yuki Kamifuku both passed their tests to join MSS48. Unfortunately Maiumi also announced that MSS48 was splitting up today.

Speaking of Kamifuku, she got the win for her team in Match #3. It was the first time she was teaming with Nao Kakuta in a regular tag match and also the first time they’ve been in the ring together since their IP Title bout back in April. Kamifuku recently learned to show respect to people like Kakuta for having longer wrestling careers than her. Miu Watanabe appreciated having a fresh team of opponents to fight. Mahiro Kiryu though was disappointed she couldn’t win today.

Also having her first singles match today was Kaya Toribami. The masked woman was put into a speedy battle against Shoko Nakajima. She hit her big move, a Twisting Senton off of the ropes the first time but found no target when she went to do it again. Nakajima caught her in a Butterfly Lock and transitioned over to the Unmanned Local Train Hold for the submission victory. Nakajima gave a little backstory in her post-match interview. She originally met Toribami two years ago where they trained together for something outside of wrestling. When Toribami showed interest in becoming a wrestler, Nakajima encouraged her to do it. Toribami said she felt nervous wrestling in Korakuen Hall but she was a little bit prepared because she already wrestled in Saitama Super Arena.

The opening match was a senpai team versus a kohai team with the veterans coming out on top. Raku got the pin on Arisu Endo with the Doctor Yellow. Nodoka Tenma was happy to see a good turnout for TJPW’s first Korakuen show held on a weeknight. She is also determined not to lose against the younger wrestlers. Yuki Aino tried cheering her sister up by reminding her she only turned “22” earlier this month. Suzume referred to her team as the 1998 class (Moka Miyamoto was born in 1999 but it’s close enough). Yuki Arai is also of similar age to the group so Suzume hopes the five of them can team together some day. Haruna Neko swore to get revenge on Pom Harajuku for targeting her paw during the match.
