I don’t have the energy to figure out what happens if Takato Nakano and Masato Kamino win their matches. If both of them win then that means all five wrestlers finish in first place tied at 4 points each!

The last day of Jacket Matches were a mixed bag for Trans-Am ★ Hiroshi. He won one and lost one, leaving him stuck at #8 in the rankings. His latest opponent Shiori Asahi is currently ranked #15.

Takeshita wants his rivalry with Brookes to be the peak for this era of DDT, just like Kota Ibushi Vs Kenny Omega was for a previous era.

DDT is collaborating with “Record Of Ragnarok” for a special match. The series is about Humanity fighting for its very survival in a deadly fighting tournament against Gods. It has a manga, a Netflix produced anime and will soon launch a live action stage show. One team led by Daisuke Sekimoto will represent the Gods from the anime and will wrestle in special costumes made for the match. If that’s not enough, Riki Choshu will also be there to provide special guest commentary.

Two more title matches are now official. NEO Biishiki-gun have still shown interest in getting Mizuki to join them. She refuses and along with Yuka Sakazaki wants to regain the Princess Tag Team Titles.

Yuki Aino bounced back from her clean loss to Miyu Yamashita by pinning Hikari Noa in a tag match. With her recent record against champions, Aino has enough claim to challenge for the International Princess Title. Noa isn’t afraid to take the match to dangerous levels in order to keep the belt over her shoulder.

The complete card for “WRESTLE PRINCESS II” will be revealed tomorrow.

TOKYO JOSHI PRO “TOKYO JOSHI 2021 AUTUMN ~KACHO GETSURO~” Results

September 15, 2021

TOKYO JOSHI PRO “TOKYO JOSHI 2021 AUTUMN ~KACHO GETSURO~”, 15/09/2021
Shinjuku FACE
202 Fans – Super No Vacancy

1. Yuka Sakazaki, Suzume & Haruna Neko defeated Nodoka Tenma, Yuki Kamifuku & Arisu Endo when Sakazaki pinned Endo with the Magical Merry-Go-Round (9:53).
2. Hyper Misao defeated Kaya Toribami with the I Am A Hero (7:23).
3. Yuki Aino & Raku defeated Hikari Noa & Nao Kakuta when Aino pinned Noa with the UBV (Infinite Love And Flame) (10:01).
4. Sakisama & Mei Saint-Michel defeated Mizuki & Pom Harajuku when Sakisama submitted Harajuku with the Versailles Foot Choke (12:33).
5. Miyu Yamashita, Miu Watanabe & Yuki Arai Vs Maki Itoh, Shoko Nakajima & Moka Miyamoto ended in a Time Limit Draw (20:00).

Miyu Yamashita and Maki Itoh found themselves on equal footing for most of the main event. While Miu Watanabe, Yuki Arai, Shoko Nakajima and Moka Miyamoto all had their parts to play, the match came down to Yamashita and Itoh in the final moments. Itoh countered the Crash Rabbit Heat into a Crab Hold. Yamashita reached the ropes but her Skull Kick attempt missed and Itoh put her in the Itoh Deluxe. Time ran out before we could find out if the move would make Yamashita give up. Neither woman had much to say to each other after the match.

The presence of Yuka Sakazaki at ringside during Match #4 kept bothering Sakisama. Sakazaki was only there to do ringside duties but that was enough for Sakisama to glare at her and lose focus on the match. Meanwhile Mei Saint-Michel got on Mizuki’s bad side by playing with parts of her ring costume. NEO Biishiki-gun won anyway and confronted The Magical Sugar Rabbits in the ring. Sakisama offered Mizuki to join her side so she could become more graceful, pretty and beautiful. Mizuki yelled “No!” The only thing about NEO Biishiki-gun she finds attractive are the Princess Tag Team Titles. MagiRabi want to take those belts and make the world a more peaceful place. Saint-Michel called them selfish and won’t ever forgive them for threatening to take the titles away. Sakisama accepted MagiRabi’s challenge and wants the title match to happen at “WRESTLE PRINCESS II”!

Never underestimate Yuki Aino! She pinned another champion in a tag match today, this time Hikari Noa. She told Noa that even though she lost to Yamashita recently, her fire never disappeared. Instead it burns even more! Aino then challenged Noa for the International Princess Title. Noa understands why Aino wants the title but it belongs to her. She suggested they have the match at “WRESTLE PRINCESS II”. Noa promised to blow up Aino so she can retain her cute belt.

Hyper Misao gifted Kaya Toribami her own superhero cloak to wear while they wrestled each other. The real reason was so Misao had something to pull and choke her with. Toribami caught on and got rid of the cloak. She thought it still belonged to her after the match but Misao walked off with it.


TOKYO JOSHI PRO “LIVE WITH YOUR TIME” Results

September 11, 2021

TOKYO JOSHI PRO “LIVE WITH YOUR TIME”, 11/09/2021
Tokyo Ryogoku KFC Hall
202 Fans – Super No Vacancy Full House

1. Yuka Sakazaki defeated Kaya Toribami with an Omoplatta (3:46).
2. Hyper Misao & Yuki Kamifuku defeated Mizuki & Moka Miyamoto when Kamifuku pinned Miyamoto with the Famouser (9:50).
3. Miu Watanabe & Yuki Arai defeated Shoko Nakajima & Arisu Endo when Watanabe pinned Endo with the Tear Drop (10:20).
4. Hikari Noa & Pom Harajuku defeated Raku & Suzume when Noa pinned Suzume with the Blizzard Suplex (8:32).
5. Maki Itoh defeated Nodoka Tenma with the Itoh Deluxe (10:44).
6. Sakisama & Mei Saint-Michel defeated Nao Kakuta & Haruna Neko when Saint-Michel pinned Neko after La Revolution (9:51).
7. Miyu Yamashita defeated Yuki Aino with the Skull Kick (12:02).

Today was a detour for Miyu Yamashita had to take on the road to “WRESTLE PRINCESS II”. Before she can defend the Princess Of Princess Title against Maki Itoh she first had to settle a score with Yuki Aino. Last week Aino pinned Yamashita in a tag match so today Yamashita needed to get her win back and prove she is in peak form. After winning the match, Yamashita called Itoh up to the ring and apologised for losing their tag match last weekend. Now they will move on from it and Yamashita swears she will beat Itoh to a pulp in Ota Ward Gymnasium! Itoh said Yamashita cannot lose to anyone but Itoh. She stuck up her middle finger and left.

Whenever Mei Saint-Michel gets in the ring with Haruna Neko she kind of loses her concentration because she just wants to play with the cat. The same happened here when she grabbed Neko by the tail and got scratched in the face. Saint-Michel later used her serving tray as a weapon and tricked Nao Kakuta into holding it so Sakisama could kick it into her face. NEO Biishiki-gun then won the match with La Revolution. It involves Saint-Michel holding Sakisama by the hand, running up to the second rope and jumping into a Flying Headscissors pin with Sakisama still holding her hand for graceful pose.

Itoh is picking up more steam with her eighth singles win in a row. After beating Nodoka Tenma today she is now ready to fight against Yamashita at least once before their Princess Title match takes place.

Yuki Arai was worried over what her physical strength would be like after a month of inactivity. Those worries went away thanks to her Idol Tag Team with Miu Watanabe. She puts Watanabe’s sense of stability as the reason they were able to beat Shoko Nakajima & Arisu Endo today. Arai got rid of Nakajima with the Full Nelson Buster so Watanabe could pin Endo with the Tear Drop. Arai hopes she can team with Watanabe more and said her enthusiasm for pro wrestling grew while she was out of action.

Yuki Kamifuku spent most of her match filming it on her phone. It was interrupted when Mizuki grabbed the phone off her. The video was streamed on the Tokyo Joshi Pro twitter account here.

Yuki Arai is back after a month of Covid related setbacks.

DDT “WHO’S GONNA TOP? 2021”, 26/09/2021
Tokyo Korakuen Hall

2. Special Tag Match: Jun Akiyama & Yoshihiko Vs HARASHIMA & Kazuki Hirata
3. Masahiro Takanashi DDT Return Match: Masahiro Takanashi, Toru Owashi & Danshoku “Dandy” Dieno Vs Yukio Sakaguchi, Saki Akai & Antonio Honda

This is the end for DAMNATION. They are forced to split up after losing the final of the DRAMATIC SURVIVOR tournament. What their final match will be and who will be involved is currently a mystery.

Jun Akiyama recently made the shocking confession of wanting to team with Yoshihiko! He admitted he would rather do this than challenge for the KO-D 8-Man Tag Team Titles.

The Pheromones have been teasing the addition of a third member to their team. Whoever it is will be showing up at Korakuen Hall!

DDT “GET ALIVE 2021”, 12/10/2021

2. DDT Universal Title: Daisuke Sasaki (c) Vs Minoru Fujita

Well Akiyama is challenging for the 8-Man Tag Titles anyway. He would rather the other four members of Junretsu fight for it but Makoto Oishi is injured long term so Akiyama has to be there. Maybe a first time in-ring meeting with Yoshiaki Yatsu will motivate him. The Olympics in Japan is now completely finished but can the champions keep their flame burning?

The main event did not go the way 121000000 expected. Miyu Yamashita & Maki Itoh had no trouble working together but they ended up losing. Yamashita was about to give Yuki Aino the Attitude Adjustment when Marika Kobashi kicked out her leg. Kobashi then got rid of Itoh to give Aino the shot at victory. Aino avoided the Skull Kick and surprised everyone by pinning Yamashita with the UBV!

Itoh couldn’t believe it. She’s done so much to catch up to Yamashita only to see her lose before their big title match? Itoh wants to beat Yamashita at her best but now it’s being ruined by this weaker version that showed up today. Itoh left the ring crying and Yamashita followed feeling shame. Backstage Yamashita said she wants a singles match against Aino to put things right. Meanwhile back in the ring Arai said the important thing to take from today’s man even is she and Kobashi won! Kobashi agreed and told the fans there is more to Tokyo Joshi Pro than just Yamashita and Itoh. Those two are the only people featured on the “WRESTLE PRINCESS II” poster but Aino & Kobashi wants the fans to come see the show for everyone else too.

Mirai Maiumi had her final match in TJPW. She wore a custom T-shirt with the message “I’m Not Saying Goodbye! Thank You All!! No Stereotype!” written on it along with today’s date. After the match Maiumi got to shake hands with the other wrestlers. She hugged Suzume and got a pat on the head from Shoko Nakajima. Backstage Maiumi said this isn’t goodbye because her story as a pro wrestler will continue. She is grateful to everyone who supported her so far. She also got said something private to Suzume. She’ll leave it up to the fans to imagine what she told her.

Rika Tatsumi was absent from the show due to illness. Her tag match was turned into a 3 Way Match with the remaining participants.

5. Costume Change Match: Mizuki & Rika Tatsumi defeated Marika Kobashi & Pom Harajuku when Mizuki pinned Harajuku with the Cutie Special (10:07).

The return of Toyko Joshi Pro’s fan club show featured a lot of unusual matches. The main event had all the wrestlers wearing different costumes from the TJPW roster. They were randomly chosen at the start of the show by picking mystery bags left in the ring. Mizuki wore Yuka Sakazaki’s gear, Rika Tatsumi was dressed as Nodoka Tenma, Marika Kobashi got Shoko Nakajima’s costume and to finish it off Pom Harajuku appeared as Miyu Yamashita. Everyone tried to copy the wrestlers they were dressed as.

Instead of having a wrestling match Yuka Sakazaki and Nao Kakuta took part in an Athletic Meet. They faced each other in three games. The first was an obstacle course where they had to spin around in circles, bite a piece of bread hanging over their heads, search for a piece of candy hidden in a plate of powder using only their mouths and then run a lap around the ring. Sakazaki won that race and earned 10 points. The 2nd game was a Three-legged Race with Sakazaki teaming with Suzume and Kakuta teaming with Moka Miyamoto. They all had to race out of the venue to the nearby shop, buy something Daisuke Kiso would like for less than 500 yen and make it back to the venue first. Bonus points were given based on how much Kiso liked his gift. Kakuta & Miyamoto won the race and bought a can of beer for Kiso (Sakazaki & Suzume got protein milk). Kakuta was given 9 points out of 10. She was deducted one point because the beer wasn’t Kiso’s favourite flavour. The final game worth 30 points was a Horse Fight. One team lifted Sakazaki onto their shoulders and another lifted up Kakuta. They had to fight in the air and grab their opponent’s hat from their head to win. Sakazaki got to grab Kakuta’s hat first, winning both the round and the entire match.

On the morning of the show, Nodoka Tenma & Yuki Aino had an accident where they fell and hit their heads. The result was both of them had personality changes and turned into a bunch of delinquents! They trapped Daisuke Kiso in the corner with tape and threatened him with a knife! Hyper Misao couldn’t fight them off by herself so she called for another superhero to help her. It was The Return Of Ultra Shoko to the rescue! Together they defeated The Bakuretsu Sisters and turned them back to normal. But it wasn’t entirely a heroic situation. Tenma held Kiso hostage again but Shoko decided to ignore it. She told the “middle aged man” Kiso to die for justice so she could hit the Ultra 619 on Aino and win the match. Sacrificing captives isn’t the right thing for superheroes to do but it got results so what do I know?

Maki Itoh & Yuki Kamifuku both sang “A Cruel Angel’s Thesis” for their entrance. After they defeated Mirai Maiumi & Kaya Toribami, Itoh said she is going to win the Princess Of Princess Title at Ota Ward Gymnasium.

Miyu Yamashita wore her old costume to fit in with The Up Up Girls (Pro Wrestling) more. She was the “Hot Pink” member of the group today. Together they sang “Upper Kick” to open the show. When it was time to wrestle, the other members had to remind Yamashita she is an idol and couldn’t act aggressive. She got back into character and was still able to win the match for her team.

6. Tokyo Princess Cup – Final: Maki Itoh defeated Shoko Nakajima with the Itoh Deluxe (23:21).

Maki Itoh lived up to her promise to prove happy endings can exist! She went off to a slow start against Shoko Nakajima but took things up a level with a Draping DDT on the ring apron. Nakajima took a beating outside the ring but got the higher ground and hit a Topé Suicida onto Itoh into the security fence. The two of them scrambled to lock in their signature submission holds back in the ring. Nakajima got the upper hand but the damage to her waist prevented her from holding the bridge when she pulled off the Northern Lights Suplex, just like what happened to Mizuki yesterday. Itoh dodged the Diving Senton and hit a Jumping DDT to even the odds again. Nakajima did the Northern Lights Suplex again but even with the bridge this time Itoh was able to kick out. She stuck out her middle finger and blocked the 619. Itoh held on and dragged Nakajima into the centre of the ring to apply the Itoh Deluxe. Nakajima had no choice but to give up, resulting in Itoh winning the Tokyo Princess Cup!

Itoh held onto her injured face until she was given the trophy, which she hugged. She told everyone this has been a long time coming. It may seem like she’s successful at everything but she’s been through a lot. She got fired as an idol, got a facelift that didn’t change anything, built up a lot of debt and even had her face broken during the tournament. This may not have been a happy ending for Nakajima or Mizuki but Itoh wants them to know there is no such thing as a bad ending. For them it’s only the middle of their stories that will head towards their own happy endings!

Itoh then invited Miyu Yamashita into the ring. She originally didn’t like her but when they wrestled each other here in Korakuen Hall on 4th January, it changed her pro wrestling life. Now Itoh is crazy about Yamashita and is glad to have met her! Yamashita congratulated Itoh and then challenged her to a Princess Of Princess Title match at “WRESTLE PRINCESS II” on 9th October! She only had one thing to ask Itoh. Is she ready to fight for the championship? Yamashita is because they team together as 121000000 and also had many singles matches against each other. She is also the best in the world to ever be Princess Champion. Itoh said she now has her happy ending and is ready to start the next chapter of Itoh Vs Yamashita at Ota Ward Gymnasium!

For the first time since their AEW debuts, Yuka Sakazaki and Aja Kong got to wrestle each other again. Kong was put off by the antics of the opposing team but even she couldn’t contend with Pom Harajuku’s Sneak Kicks. Kong finally got her hands on her but the rest of the team made her join in the Good Night Express. Rika Tatsumi then tried to Body Slam Kong onto Harajuku but couldn’t lift her so Kong slammed her instead. The Magical Sugar Rabbits put a stop to Kong with Toy Story (the Double Diving Cross Bodies off the same turnbuckles). Marika Kobashi got involved until Nao Kakuta put her down with a DDT, Tatsumi hit Kakuta with the Hip Attack and then gave Harajuku the Twist Of Fate. Mizuki got Tatsumi with a Missile Dropkick but then Kong came back and held Mizuki in place for Raku’s Double Brain Chop. Mizuki kicked out and avoided the Doctor Yellow. She then caught Raku in the Cutie Special to nab the three count. Everyone on the winning team apologized to Harajuku for not saving her from getting squashed by Kong. Meanwhile Kong praised her team for having good teamwork. Even 35 years into her career she is learning new things and enjoying new places like Tokyo Joshi Pro.

NEO Bishiiki-gun spent their time on the show bullying Hikari Noa & Arisu Endo. It wasn’t a fair fight either because they used distractions to attack Noa with Sakisama’s rose and Mei Saint-Michel’s tray. Noa fought back and was able to get the tag to Endo but Sakisama still drilled her with a Big Boot. NEO Bishiiki-gun continued strong and got rid of Noa with the Tarte Tatin before Saint-Michel submitted Endo with her self-named submission hold.

The first trios match of the show saw Miu Watanabe give Haruna Neko the Giant Swing. Mahiro Kiryu lifted Suzume up for a Spinebuster but held her so Yuki Kamifuku could hit a Big Boot before the drop. Mirai Maiumi got rid of them with a Double Lariat so Watanabe could pin Neko with the Tear Drop.

Hyper Misao wanted Kaya Toribami to watch and learn how to cheat in matches and get away with it. The rookie didn’t quite get what to do. When Misao told her to use the cold spray, Toribami thought she meant to spray herself for recovery reasons rather than spray the opponent to blind them. The Bakuretsu Sisters got past their opponents. Nodoka Tenma rendered Misao useless with a Back Flip and Yuki Aino pinned Toribami with the Venus DDT.

Yamashita’s solo work today was dealing with Moka Miyamoto in the opener. The rookie avoided the Attitude Adjustment, struck Yamashita in the stomach with a Straight Fist Thrust and applied the Rashomon hold. Yamashita used kicks to break out of the hold, hit a Right High Kick and then got the victory with the Attitude Adjustment.

5. Yuka Sakazaki AEW Triumphant Return Match: Yuka Sakazaki & Hikari Noa defeated Miyu Yamashita & Marika Kobashi when Sakazaki pinned Kobashi with the Magical Merry-Go-Round (11:56).
6. Tokyo Princess Cup – Semi Final: Shoko Nakajima defeated Miu Watanabe with the Locomotion Northern Lights Suplex (12:27).
7. Tokyo Princess Cup – Semi Final: Maki Itoh submitted Mizuki with the Itoh Deluxe (18:39).

The entire tournament was building up to this match. The fated rematch between the original Itoh Respect Army. On the one side was Mizuki chasing after the Tokyo Princess Cup three-peat. On the other side was Maki Itoh, still recovering from a fractured cheekbone but wanted this match more than any other. She targeted Mizuki’s waist, damaging it enough to make the Itoh Punish even more painful. Mizuki was able to free herself with a rope break but struggled to get the strength to stand back up. The damage dealt proved cost worthy because Mizuki also couldn’t hold the bridge when she did the Cutie Special, allowing Itoh enough recovery time to kick out of the regular cover. Itoh blocked another Cutie Special and knocked Mizuki down with a Headbutt. Looking up to the sky, Itoh applied the Itoh Punish once more and made Mizuki submit!

The two shook each other’s hands after the match while Miyu Yamashita and Yuka Sakazaki looked on. As Mizuki was leaving, Itoh called to her saying she has become stronger thanks to her. Her tearful expression immediately turned into a happy one once Mizuki was gone. She wondered how many fans think she is all talk and no results? Even she thinks this is too much of a happy ending than she is used to. But she is certain she will win the final tomorrow and prove that happy endings do exist!

Meeting Itoh in the final is perhaps the woman with the strongest attachment to the Princess Cup. For the fifth time Shoko Nakajima makes it to the final! Miu Watanabe caught her in a Bearhug and turned it into the Blooming Giant Swing that she started using during the tournament. She also blocked the 619 with a Baseball Bat Swing. Things looked bad for Nakajima until she countered the Tear Drop into a Hurricanrana. She gave Watanabe the Northern Lights Suplex then rolled over to hit another one to get the win. Nakajima said she will win the final tomorrow because her current form is the strongest Shoko Nakajima in the history of Shoko Nakajima!

Sakazaki returns from AEW and wasted no time stepping in the ring with Yamashita again. Some teamwork with Hikari Noa put Yamashita in danger until Marika Kobashi got a blind tag. Yamashita gave Noa a German Suplex and Kobashi joined in with a Jackknife for a combo pin attempt. Sakazaki broke the pin using the Magical Girl Splash. Sakazaki then powered out of the Front Neck Lock and pinned Kobashi with the Magical Merry-Go-Round for the victory. Backstage Sakazaki said something she learned from her AEW tour was how to adapt during a match without losing her rhythm, like wrestling through commercial breaks for example.

NEO Bishiiki-gun are back to full strength thanks to the aid of the unit’s doctor Yukio Saint Laurent. Meanwhile Antonio Honda didn’t know what he was getting into. At one point he suddenly told everyone to stop the match. He was feeling pain but not from the wrestling moves. The pain was in his appendix. Saint Laurent examined him with a stethoscope but is was a trap and Honda yelled into it. Honda later faked a knee injury to set up Gongitsune but Mei Saint-Michel deflected it with her tray and Pom Harajuku got hit with it instead. Saint Laurent then injected his medicine into Honda but all it did was make him feel good. Both teams got into dueling Knuckle Punches with Honda’s team ending it with Bionic Elbows. Rika Tatsumi gave Sakisama the Twist Of Fate and Harajuku followed up with the Pom Do Justice for a nearfall. Sakisama recovered and suddenly put Harajuku in the Versailles Foot Choke to win in the end. After the match Saint-Michel said she would like to team up with NEO Bishiiki-gun’s other maid, Martha.

The visitor Aja Kong was given a warm welcome by the Tokyo Joshi Pro Aja Kong fan club! All the other wrestlers in the match had faceguards covered in Kong’s facepaint designs. Hyper Misao gave Kong a custom steel can and her very own superhero cloak that serves as proof she is a hero to so many people. Everyone then stood together for the group photo until Misao sprayed Kong in the face, revealing it was a trap all along! Misao then found out Kong was too heavy to lift and she now had to fight an angry Aja Kong. The fun and games were over but not for long. Kong’s mood improved and she joined in the Good Night Express with Raku & Haruna Neko. She climbed the ropes until she was stopped by Nodoka Tenma hitting her in the backside. Misao & Tenma tried to knock Kong down and needed Yuki Kamifuku to help pull it of. Kong was finally stopped with more spray from Misao. In the end, Kamifuku won it for her team by beating Neko. Each member of the winning team had their own descriptions of Kong. Kamifuku said Kong’s skin is as thick as an elephant she saw at a zoo. Tenma said Kong is like a big stuffed gorilla toy she had when she was a baby. Misao said Kong is like a turnip that cannot be pulled out of the ground.

Suzume wrestled in a new costume that looks more bee-like than the previous. She made a good day even better by getting the three count on Moka Miyamoto while Arisu Endo got rid of Mirai Maiumi.

The opening match saw Kaya Toribami hit Yuki Aino with a Rolling Sole Butt only for Aino to fire back with the Side Suplex. With the two of them cancelling each other out, Nao Kakuta was able to beat Mahiro Kiryu with the Shiden Kai.

Today’s visit to Nagoya was a big deal for Yuki Arai. Her first match in the home of SKE48 was a big enough deal to be put in the main event and also have a live broadcast on WRESTLE UNIVERSE. She won the match too! Miyu Yamashita took out Yuki Aino with the Skull Kick, leaving Arai to deal with Moka Miyamoto. Arai hit a Full Nelson Buster and then the Finally to get the three count.

Tokyo Joshi Pro will hold their first event in Nagoya Congress Center on 18th December. It will be a big show and Arai said she wants a singles match against Yamashita on it! She credited Yamashita for teaching and supporting her a lot. But when December rolls around Arai will have grown as a wrestler and she wants to do her best against Yamashita when the show happens. Yamashita is inspired by Arai’s strong feelings on the matter and would like the match to happen.
