6. Tokyo Princess Cup – Round 1B: Natsumi Maki Vs Hikari Noa
7. Tokyo Princess Cup – Round 1A: Shoko Nakajima Vs Yuki Kamifuku

Shoko Nakajima has a lot she wants to do as the current TOKYO Princess Champion. She already had a successful title defence. Next is winning the Tokyo Princess Cup, a tournament she has had plenty of experience with. She wants to win it as the champion so she can choose her next challenger for Osaka in September. Yuki Kamifuku likes to live happliy and brightly. She promises to do her best so she can have a fun summer.

Pandemic Boo-Boo explodes! The team have been paired together for the first round. Hikari Noa is the only member of the Up Up Girls to have previously competed in the Princess Cup. She said Natsumi Maki is the most difficult person to wrestling in the tournament. Noa admits she probably won’t win but it is still her goal to get the victory no matter who she faces.

Miu Watanabe failed to enter the Princess Cup last year because she lost the qualifier match to Hikari Noa. A lot has changed this year so Watanabe is taking her chance to fight power with power against Nodoka Tenma. Speaking of Tenma, she is aiming to go one step ahead of her performance from last year and reach the final.

Himawari Unagi thanks everyone for voting her into the final spot. The first time she saw pro wrestling was last year’s Princess Cup final where she got to watch really cool and pretty women having amazing fights. She wants to be a part of such matches too. Rika Tatsumi felt she lost more than just a match when she was eliminated in the semi-finals last year. Her injury took place shortly afterwards so she is coming into this tournament feeling dissatisfied about her current situation. The only way she can overcome this is win the Princess Cup!

Shin-Kiba 1st RING

1. Tokyo Princess Cup – Round 1H: Yuna Manase Vs Yuki Aino
2. Tokyo Princess Cup – Round 1G: Maki Itoh Vs Raku
3. Tokyo Princess Cup – Round 1F: Yuka Sakazaki Vs Mina Shirakawa
4. Tokyo Princess Cup – Round 1E: Miyu Yamashita Vs Mizuki

Mizuki has gotten so used to tag team wrestling that the possibility of going on a singles run makes her feel a little uneasy. She won’t have a tag partner to rely on when she faces Miyu Yamashita in the first round. Yamashita needs to regain some momentum after losing her two championships. But the Princess Cup has traditionally been her Achilles heel. It’s the one place where she suffers upset defeats more often than anywhere else.

Mina Shirakawa describes her match with Yuka Sakazaki is a situation similar to Hayabusa Vs Jushin Liger from the 1994 Super J Cup! Sakazaki is gaining attention outside of Japan so Shirakawa sees this as a great opportunity for her.

Raku gets to enter the Princess Cup for the first time. She wasn’t considered for last year’s tournament because she had not won a match by that point. Maki Itoh intimidated a Weekly Pro Wrestling promoter into calling her the favourite to win this year’s tournament.

Yuna Manase is aiming to get past the 1st Round which is something she was unable to do in her previous two attempts. She believes she cannot advance her career if does not advance into at least the 2nd round. Yuki Aino has impressed Manase with her hard work lately and Aino likes to think of her as a kind sister. Aino wants to leave a strong impression on her as she enters the tournament for the first time.

3. Tokyo Princess Tag Team Titles: Yuka Sakazaki & Mizuki (c) Vs Sakisama & Misao

None of the NEO Biishiki-gun members are entering the tournament this year. They are more interested in winning the Tokyo Princess Tag Team Titles. Also Sakisama wants Mizuki to join her collection of wrestlers. Her leadership did wonders for Misao. Imagine what it could do for Mizuki?

Shin-Kiba 1st RING

1. Tokyo Princess Cup – Round 2: Winner Of Match 1A Vs Winner Of Match 1E
2. Tokyo Princess Cup – Round 2: Winner Of Match 1C Vs Winner Of Match 1F

If either or both of The Magical Sugar Rabbits make it to Round 2 their matches will take place on the 22nd June. This was done to avoid the lottery having either (or both) of them wrestle twice on the 8th when they already have their title defence scheduled that day.

7. Thunder Rosa, Allysin Kay & Yuki Kamifuku defeated Shoko Nakajima, Miyu Yamashita & Miu Watanabe when Rosa pinned Watanabe with the Reinella Splash (11:08).

Thunder Rosa countered Miu Watanabe’s Canadian Backbreaker into the Reinella Splash to win the main event. After the match Rosa faced off with Shoko Nakajima while Allysin Kay and Miyu Yamashita stared each other down. Nakajima motivated Yamashita and said both of them will defend their titles tomorrow and together become Mega Double Champs!

Misao is getting annoyed that “weeds” are spreading to places where the winds are gentle. She does not want to even see weak people let alone be associated with them. Sakisama agreed and talked to Tetsuya Koda about adding the TOKYO Princess Tag Team Titles and also the “pure white child” Mizuki to her collection. Koda said he would book a tag title match for Osaka on 12th May but Sakisama said she will be busy in Paris that day. Instead she wants the title match to happen during the Tokyo Princess Cup. In return she will agree not to enter the tournament this year. Koda did not make an immediate decision.

Mina Shirakawa gave Maki Itoh the middle finger after their match. Itoh grabbed the finger and twisted it. She then stuck up her own middle finger to Shirakawa.

Pandemic Boo-Boo used a Double Argentine Facebuster on Marika Kobashi to set up their winning pinfall.

Don’t know if it was just a bit of rookie hazing but Yuna Manase stomped on Mahiro Kiryu after their match.

It was revealed the 2019 Tokyo Princess Cup will begin on 25th May and the final will be held on 7th July.

*Miyu Yamashita fails in V11. Shoko Nakajima becomes the 6th TOKYO Princess Of Princess Champion!

Shoko Nakajima has become the Big Kaiju of Tokyo Joshi Pro! She toughed it out to end Miyu Yamashita’s dominant reign as the TOKYO Princess Champion, taking all that the champ could throw at her. The end came when Yamashita went for the Crash Rabbit Heat but Nakajima caught her with the Northern Lights Suplex. Then Nakajima rolled it through to do another Northern Lights for the three count.

When the match ended Nakajima said Yamashita is the best ace but now it is her who has the belt. However Nakajima doesn’t feel like she has the belt at all. She feels she needs to defend it a lot from now on so it will truly become hers. Thunder Rosa then came out to greet the new champion. Rosa said congratulations to the “Little Kaiju” then challenged her to a title match in Sapporo on Monday. When she called Nakajima a “Little Kaiju” Nakajima shouted “Big Kaiju!” back at her and accepted the challenge.

Pandemic Boo-Boo got their second shot at the TOKYO Princess Tag Team Titles but still couldn’t beat The Magical Sugar Rabbits. The combination of the Cutie Special, Magical Merry-Go-Round and the Magical Magical Girl Splash earned the champions their 6th defence. Yuka Sakazaki said afterwards that the belts feel heavier after every defence. She wanted to go celebrate with hamburgers when NEO Biishiki-gun interrupted her speech. Sakisama scoffed at the idea of eating burgers then turned her attention over to Mizuki. She thinks Mizuki looks pure white next to Sakazaki but if she becomes part of Sakiama’s collection she will shine even brighter. Misao tried to convince Mizuki to join NEO Biishiki-gun and listed all of the positive things that happened to herself since she joined. For example Misao’s hair has grown naturally and beautifully. Also her knee injury that hampered her previous life has become fully healed. It sounds like they are challenging the champions for a title match but it’s not. That’s because NEO Biishiki-gun are always the ones who accepts challenges, not make them. The Sugar Rabbits said they won’t let Sakisama get what she wants!

Rika Tatsumi & Miu Watanabe’s mission to turn Misao back into Hyper Misao was a big failure. They showed her a poster of Hyper Misao to jog her memories but Misao ripped the poster apart. With no other option Tatsumi had to wrestle Misao. She almost had her beat with the Dragon Sleeper but Sakisama broke the hold. Sakisama kicked Watanabe away with an Apron PK while Misao pinned Tatsumi with the Vanitas. Tatsumi still thinks Hyper Misao is still sleeping somwhere in her heart but Misao felt very cold. Watanabe also took shots at Sakisama, saying it’s not beautiful to make a fool out of other people.

Aja Kong said she’d give Maki Itoh ten minutes of her time and she lived up to her promise. Heck, she even got an extra 47 seconds out of it! Rumours were going around that Itoh’s head is tougher than Kong’s steel cans. It looked that way at points but when Itoh hit the Flying Big Head, Kong kicked out at one. It wasn’t long before Kong had Itoh beaten but Itoh got to stick her middle finger in Kong’s face before taking defeat. And after too. Itoh then got on the microphone afterwards and said the loss won’t effect her because she represents the Reiwa Era and she will never lose!

Marika Kobashi ends her current run with Tokyo Joshi on the winners side with Reika Saiki. Raku did well teaming with Riho but ultimately fell to Saiki’s power.

Thunder Rosa was just as concerned with trying to out-sexy Yuki Kamifuku as she was trying to out-wrestle her. Kamifuku hit the Fame Asser but Rosa was able to reach the ropes. She then blocked Kamifuku’s Brainbuster and hit the Reinella Splash to win.

The debut of Mirai Maiumi turned out to be a big occasion because the first Tiger Mask, Satoru Sayama was there in person to present her with an encouragement award before the match. Maiumi wants to be a power based wrestler and tried to beat Nodoka Tenma with a Reverse Lariat. Tenma instead caught Maiumi in the Killswitch to end the rookie’s first match with a loss.

Yuna Manase & Himawari Unagi did what works for them most when they team together and that’s smothering their opponent’s faces with their chests. Doing that to Pom Harajuku allowed Manase to pin her with the Suzuki Dynamic afterwards.

The main event lasted all thirty minutes and ended without a winner. Still, Keisuke Ishii was happy with the result and said it was great to make friends with the other wrestlers today. Ishii & Kouki Iwasaki thought they had the match won when they isolated Minoru Fujita. They hit him with the Kneel Kick, a Dragon Suplex, a Tiger Suplex and then a Moonsault but Fujita kicked out! Shuichiro Katsumura then trapped Iwasaki in the Cross Armbreaker when the bell rang to end the match in a draw. Fujita didn’t want himself or Katsumata to raise their hands along with Ishii & Iwasaki because he saw it as an admittance of defeat. Katsumura however convinced Fujita to join in.

The show ended with a 13 Vs 1 Handicap Match between Ken Ohka against everybody else on the card. Ohka was able to eliminated mostly everyone by throwing them out of the ring but HARUKAZE hid until he was the last one left and eliminated him from behind. She won the prize pack of melons that was originally meant to be given to the winners of the main event tag match. Ohka was given a lethally spicy chili pepper as a booby prize.

“Sunrise”, “GRAND SWORD”, “J”, “HOLD OUT” and “Subconsciousness” were the songs played during the Lariat Pro Wrestling match. The last one isn’t associated with Lariats but that didn’t stop Yuna Manase from doing the pose and screaming “Yeaoh!”

Ohka wanted to do the Japanese Ocean Cyclone Suplex in the joshi match but his own tag partner Moeka Haruhi stopped him because “it is Miss Toyota’s move.” Haruhi then kicked Ohka below the belt and HARUKAZE pinned him with a School Boy. Haruhi, HARUKAZE and Cherry kicked Ohka out of the ring afterwards but he had to get back in because the Lariat match was next.
