7a. Maki Ito pinned Miyu Yamashita with an Inside Cradle (4:43).
7b. Miyu Yamashita pinned Maki Ito with a Backwards Kick (8:48).
7c. Shoko Nakajima pinned Yuka Sakazaki with the Diving Senton (5:27).

The big preview for 4th January saw the challengers team beat the champions side two falls to one. Maki Ito surprised Miyu Yamashita by countering the Attitude Adjustment into an Inside Cradle to win the first fall. Yamashita took the second when she withstood a Headbutt from Ito and knocked her down with a Backwards Kick. The deciding fall was focused on the two tag teams as the Magical Sugar Rabbits battled with Shoko Nakajima & Riho. Miscommunication between Yuka Sakazaki & Mizuki allowed their opponents to give Sakazaki a Double Northern Lights Suplex. Nakajima then pinned Sakazaki with the Diving Senton to end the match. Ito taunted Yamashita by telling her she looks nervous after the match while Ito is still cute even after getting beaten up. Nakajima calmed things down by saying how fun the match was today. She said Tokyo Joshi Pro is now five years old. When they began they only had enough girls to put together three match shows. Now they have a big enough roster to do seven matches including 6-Women Tags! She hopes Tokyo Joshi will last for another 10, 15 or even 100 years and continue to grow bigger in the process.

Yuu has spent three and a half years of her life with Tokyo Joshi and today it came to an end. In her last match for the group she defeated her generational opposite Nodoka Tenma. Yuu said she had fun learning in Tokyo Joshi but would like to take full advantage of this opportunity to wrestle freelance and overseas. She’d be lying if she said she doesn’t feel lonely and perhaps she may become a totally different person when she comes back to Japan. Yuu thanked everyone for supporting her and for coming to see her last match in the company.

The debuting YUMI showed she is more powerful than she looks by giving Saki Akai a modified Choke Slam. However Akai stopped her with a Big Boot and trapped YUMI in a Leg & Face Lock to make the rookie tap out. Akai is interested in seeing how the 14 year old YUMI will develop from here. Akai also finds it interesting to see more tall girls entering Tokyo Joshi. YUMI thought the match was so tough that she would die. But she didn’t die, she came back. YUMI hopes she can become a pro wrestler that fans will want to support and see win. From the beginning YUMI wanted to make the Choke Slam her big move so she’s happy she got to use that. She also learned from Akai that adults don’t always have to act serious.

Hyper Misao came out with new music and a new plan. She wants to form a Hero Army to find her successor. She gave hero masks to Yuki Aino and Hinano and told them the match was an audition to find candidates. Aino and Hinano then decided to gang up on Misao instead. Misao tried to tell each of them they passed just so they would ease off but neither wanted to join her. Misao was able to roll Hinano over with a School Boy and used the ropes for leverage to steal the win.

Pom Harajuku got her first win today by beating her fellow rookie Haruna Neko.

Marika Kobashi announced her return match will be on 4th January. She was wearing an eyepatch because she got a stye in her left eye a few days ago.

The Bakuretsu Sisters will be releasing two photobooks on 4th January.

Tokyo Joshi’s next Korakuen Hall show after January will be on 3rd May.

Iron Man Heavymetalweight Title: Tetsuya Koda defeated Sayuri Nanba (c) with a Sleeper Hold (6:56 pm).
*Tetsuya Koda becomes the 1,336th champion.

Maki Ito had been losing confidence since her humiliating submission defeat to Miyu Yamashita last week so she was happy to win today. In fact Ito thanked Yamashita for dropping her back down to the bottom so she can climb up and become stronger. Ito pointed at Yuki Aino and told her she is the same after failing to win the TOKYO Princess Tag Team Titles. That makes Ito and Aino bottom buddies. They will both crawl from the bottom to get to the top. Ito asked the crowd who is the 2nd cutest in the world. It’s Aino! And who is the 1st cutest? It’s Ito!

Shoko Nakajima Vs Yuu ended in a draw but neither will forget the match anytime soon. Nakajima especially because her chest was left raw by Yuu’s chops. Yuu is grateful that she got to wrestle Nakajima one on one before she goes freelance. Yuu is inspired because Nakajima will always fight no matter if she wins or loses. Nakajima regrets not winning the match because she has never beaten Yuu. She hopes they will fight again some day.

Rika Tatsumi came out after intermission to sing her entrance song. Sayuri Nanba knocked her out mid-performance and pinned her to win the Iron Man Heavymetalweight Title. Later when the show had just finished, the GM Tetsuya Koda ambushed Nanba and made her submit to a Sleeper Hold to become the new champion. He ran away with the belt while everyone booed him.

When Haruna Neko debuted she made fun of Nakajima’s height by reaching too high for a test of strength. Today Yuna Manase did the same to Haruna.

The debuting Pom Harajuku acted very playful with Yuka Sakazaki. She said the match felt like it came and went in an instant. She couldn’t do 100% of what she wanted to do but she had fun out there.

A new trainee introduced herself to the audience before the show began. Unagi had never seen pro wrestling before discovering Tokyo Joshi Pro. She debuts on 4th January and is part of the same class as Haruna, Harajuku, Yumi and one other girl who has yet to introduce herself. Unagi said she cannot wait until all five have made their debut.

4. 3 Way Match: Mizuki Vs Nodoka Tenma Vs Hinano
5. Shoko Nakajima Vs Yuu
6. Miyu Yamashita & Hikari Vs Maki Ito & Yuki Aino

Now that the Iron Man Heavymetalweight Title is out of the main event picture, Maki Ito has to put all of her focus on Miyu Yamashita. According to Yamashita this will be the best idea for Ito because the chase for the TOKYO Princess Title is more interesting when the challenger doesn’t already have a belt.

7. No Rope Barbed Wire Death Match: Ken Ohka Vs Minoru Fujita

The most developed feud in Ganbare☆Wrestling’s history has come back to the surface for the group’s second show in Korakuen Hall. There is history between Ken Ohka and Minoru Fujita, sometimes as friends but mostly as enemies. To ensure both men will give their absolute all, the match is going to be a No Rope Barbed Wire Death Match!

TOKYO JOSHI PRO “TOKYO JOSHI PRO ’19”, 04/01/2019
Tokyo Korakuen Hall

1. Special Single Match: Meiko Satomura Vs Reika Saiki
2. TOKYO Princess Tag Team Titles: Yuka Sakazaki & Mizuki (c) Vs Shoko Nakajima & Riho
3. TOKYO Princess Of Princess Title: Miyu Yamashita (c) Vs Maki Ito

The relationship mapping for the TOKYO Princess Tag Team Titles match is a little bit all over the place. Yuka Sakazaki and Shoko Nakajima are friends and team together as the Miraclians. But Sakazaki currently teams with Mizuki as the Magical Sugar Rabbits. Mizuki has been friends with Riho since before joining Tokyo Joshi and they teamed together to challenge for the Tag Titles back in January. So when Nakajima was looking for someone good enough to beat the best team in TJPW, she picked Riho. No mention of a team name for them yet but there has certainly has to be one for the sake of the relationship chart.

Shin-Kiba 1st RING

1. Yuki Kamifuku defeated Hinano with the Fame Asser (7:43).
2. Haruna Neko Debut Match: Shoko Nakajima defeated Haruna Neko with the Unmanned Local Train Hold (6:36).
3. 3 Way Match: Yuna Manase defeated Raku and Mina Shirakawa when Manase pinned Raku with the Neck Screw Hold (11:20).
4. Iron Man Heavymetalweight Title: Miyu Yamashita & Nodoka Tenma defeated Maki Ito (c) & Hyper Misao when Yamashita submitted Ito with a Crab Hold (13:24).
*Miyu Yamashita becomes the 1,333rd champion.
5. Yuu defeated Yuki Aino with the Katahajime (8:28).
6. TOKYO Princess Tag Team Titles: Yuka Sakazaki & Mizuki (c) defeated Hikari & Miu when Sakazaki pinned Hikari with the Magical Magical Girl Splash (14:34).
*V2 for The Magical Sugar Rabbits.

The Up Up Girls duo put up a good fight with even Miu doing a Double Body Slam to Yuka Sakazaki & Mizuki but they just couldn’t beat the TOKYO Princess Tag Team Champions. Late in the match Hikari kept Sakazaki in her clutches with the Cobra Twist but Mizuki broke the hold. Sakazaki dropped Hikari with the Complete Shot, Mizuki followed up with a Diving Foot Stop and Sakazaki got the pin with the Magical Magical Girl Splash. The champions told Hikari & Miu that they respect them from the bottom of their hearts.

Shoko Nakajima then entered the ring. She congratulated the Magical Sugar Rabbits and called them the best team in Tokyo Joshi Pro. She wants to challenge them for the tag titles at Korakuen Hall on 4th Janaury but knows that Sakazaki is her best partner when they team up as Miraclians. She needs to team with somebody beyond Sakazaki and boy did she find someone. It’s Riho! The Rabbits accepted the challenge. It kind of complicates the relationships between all four women but they all think it is worth it to create the best match possible.

Yuu asked Nodoka Tenma to be her final opponent in Tokyo Joshi on 1st December. The two made their debuts on the same day and have wrestled each other more times than any other person in the company. Tenma accepted but told Yuu she will not lose to her again. Tenma will finally beat Yuu on the day Yuu leaves Tokyo Joshi!

Maki Ito suffered a major blow in the build up to 4/1 by losing the Iron Man Heavymetalweight Title to Miyu Yamashita! The two faced off in a tag match with Nodoka Tenma and Hyper Misao also involved. Ito kicked out of a Right High Kick at one but was beaten down by Yamashita with Buzzsaw Kicks and a Cobra Clutch. Yamashita then locked in a Crab Hold to make Ito submit. Yamashita poured salt on the wounds by taunting Ito with both the Iron Man Title and the TOKYO Princess Title before leaving the ring. Yamashita achieved her goal for today. She thinks their Korakuen match will be more interesting if Ito has to chase after her in the build up. Ito can’t do that if she already has a championship. Well, problem solved.

Haruna Neko had her debut match against Shoko Nakajima. It started off playful as both girls had fun with each other’s tails. Haruna also used a test of strength to make fun of Nakajima’s height by lifting her hand above Nakajima’s reach. Nakajima rolled Haruna into the Unmanned Local Train Hold from a La Magistral to make the rookie submit. For now Haruna hopes to learn more moves that she can use in her next matches.

The two remaining trainees waiting to debut learned who they will be facing in their first matches. Kyou takes on Yuka Sakazaki on 24th November and Yumi will face Saki Akai on 1st December.

What a day it was for Maki Ito! Earlier in the show she lost her Iron Man Heavymetalweight Title to Shoko Nakajima after their tag match. However when they faced off again the the main event Rumble, Ito countered the Northern Lights Suplex into a Cradle to eliminate Nakajima and regain the title. Ito then pinned Yuki Kamifuku with the Flying Big Head to win the match and earn the TOKYO Princess Title shot on 4th January! Ito and Miyu Yamashita stood opposite from each other in the ring after the main event. Yamashita is excited to finally defend the title against Ito. However, Ito immediately set the mood by saying the match isn’t going to be for fun. Yamashita’s time is over, the next era of Tokyo Joshi Pro belongs to Ito!

Yuu told the fans about her plan to leave Tokyo Joshi and become a freelancer. She apologised for delaying the news because she didn’t want to overshadow Azusa Takigawa’s graduation last month. Yuu thinks she made a positive decision and she thanks everyone for supporting her.

Hikari stopped the Magical Sugar Rabbits from leaving the ring after Match #4. She told them that while the up Up Girls (Pro Wrestling) have only been wrestling for less than a year, they’ve been rapidly progressing. Hikari wants to raise the unit’s position on the roster before the new set of trainees debut so she and Miu asked for a TOKYO Princess Tag Team Titles shot. The champions weren’t sure about the challengers but they accepted the request. The title match takes place on 17th November. Later in the Rumble, Hikari & Miu sent a message to Sakazaki & Mizuki by eliminating the both of them from the match.

Mina Shirakawa wanted to win her first match in Tokyo Joshi so she could immediately make an impact. Instead she quickly found out how much of a struggle it was just to avoid getting pinned. Shoko Nakajima pinned her with the Northern Lights Suplex to start Shirakawa’s run with a loss. Nakajima then snuck in a School Boy on Maki Ito on the entrance ramp to win the Iron Man Title.

Hyper Misao doesn’t understand why there are two girls named Yuki on the Tokyo Joshi roster. She proposed the creation of the YUKI Of YUKI Championship to distinguish the two. Misao also wanted the loser of the 3 Way Match be renamed either Hyper Aino or Hyper Kamifuku depending on who got pinned. Yuki Kamifuku gave Yuki Aino the Fame Asser but Misao got in and pinned Kamifuku with a rope assisted School Boy. Her stipulations didn’t stand afterwards.

Rika Tatsumi gave a live performance of her entrance song after intermission.

Veda Scott will be returning to Tokyo Joshi on 1st December. She will be wrestling on Tokyo Joshi shows up until 13th January.


Yuu Leaving Tokyo Joshi

November 1, 2018

It’s been announced today that Yuu will be leaving Tokyo Joshi Pro on 1st December to go freelance with a focus on wrestling overseas. Yuu will be wrestling on all of the TJPW shows scheduled for November but her final match for the company will be on 1/12.

Yuu had been thinking about her pro wrestling future for a while now. She enjoys it too much to consider retirement so she figured her next step would be to achieve her dream of wrestling abroad. She made the most of her time in Tokyo Joshi and thinks now is the time to look to the wider wrestling world. Yuu’s contract was up for renewal in September and she talked with management about her thoughts on the matter. They kept it secret during October because nobody wanted to take attention away from Azusa Takigawa’s graduation. Yuu is going public with the news now so she has the last month of matches to use her full power for.

Yuu’s feelings towards having more freedom in her career came out of the matches she’s had with Yuna Manase and Miyu Yamashita. When she saw Takigawa’s face during her graduation, she could see how happy she was. However, Yuu knows there are more places to go and stuff she wants to do before she considers retirement. She is excited about moving abroad although she has nothing planned as of now. She is also open to the idea of wrestling in Tokyo Joshi as a freelancer if they will allow it. There are many women in the roster she would like to have her last match against but she wants time to think about it.
