For the first time in almost 5 years, Ganbare☆Joshi got an entire show to themselves. This was the third of four events Ganbare☆Wrestling held in Oji BASEMENT MON☆STAR today. Moeka Haruhi, HARUKAZE and Asuka got together for an exciting show against a trio representing the DDT Wrestling Classroom. Haruhi said her goal was to have a better show than the Katsumura-gun Vs Shota-gun event that took place earlier in the day.

The opening bout saw Haruhi take on Banny Oikawa in a 2 Count Fall match. With only two seconds needed to pin the opponent, the match was more tense than usual. Haruhi got one count nearfalls with a Diving Body Press and a Missile Dropkick. She was finally able to pin Oikawa with a Double Wrist Armsault.

HARUKAZE wanted a match with Yuu solely focused on mat wrestling so they both wore judo jackets. Yuu’s power was too much to handle. She used a Power Bomb to break out of a Cross Armbreaker and got a submission win by using the sleeve of HARUKAZE’s jacket to choke her out.

The last singles match of the challenge was between Asuka and Cherry in a Count Up Falls Match. Every second of a pin was added together until a target number was reached. The judges Ken Ohka, Kouki Iwasaki and Yumehito Imanari decided that the targets would be the wrestlers’ respective ages. So Asuka needed to reach 21 seconds while Cherry needed to get 45 seconds. It was an uphill battle for Cherry but her ring experience kept her on pace with Asuka. The match reached the point where Asuka was on 20 while Cherry made it to 44. One more second was needed for a winner to be declared. A Backslide Pin led to both women having their shoulders pinned at the same time so the match resulted in a draw. The team challenge would be decided in the main event.

The side attraction was a Lariat match between a bunch of mostly male wrestlers doing cross dressing gimmicks. Miss Mongol was the odd one out here. There was confusion when KEIKO (Keisuke Ishii) wrestled topless. Shigeko Deluxe (Shigehiro Irie) made her regret it with Chops in the corner. Theme songs of famous Lariat users played throughout the match. The Lariats turned to Dropkicks when the music changed to the AJW theme song. Eagle Washida (Shuhei Washida) got booed when he did Big Boots although to be fair “Soul Of A Champion” began to play so she was really doing a Giant Baba tribute. She did Neckbreaker Drops which are close enough to Lariats. She then did Sling Blades when “HIGH ENERGY” played. She then did a Rainmaker pose but Shigeko clocked her with a Lariat for the win.

The main event was a Secret Captain’s Fall Elimination match. Defeat the team captain to win but the captain would not be revealed until they were eliminated. Over The Top Rope eliminations were included and that was how the wrestlers were taken out of the match. When it came down to HARUKAZE and Cherry it was clear that they were both the captains. Cherry ended up standing on the ring apron and was knocked to the floor with a Spear to make the GanJo team the winners!

HARUKAZE said when she joined Ganpro, she was the only woman in the group so she was worried if she would be accepted. She didn’t get much cheers for her early matches but as time went by more and more fans supported her. Now she feels like she is a member of Ganpro.

Yukio Naya met with Onita and asked if he could be part of the next Bakuha Koshien show on 28th March. Onita will consider it if Naya renames himself Taiho III after his grandfather Taiho Koki.

GANBARE☆WRESTLING “GANBARE☆JOSHI PRO WRESTLING 2020”, 02/02/2020
Tokyo Oji BASEMENT MON☆STAR

Daisuke Kiso wanted the main event to definitively decided which team is better so he made it an Elimination Tag Match.

The 2 Count match was made to even the playing field between Moeka Haruhi and the less experienced Banny Oikawa.

Both HARUKAZE and Yuu will be wrestling in judo jackets because HARUKAZE wants the match to be entirely about grappling and groundwork.

The Count-Up Fall Match adds up the pinfall counts a wrestler makes. The first to reach their total count up to a predetermined number wins. Cherry’s opponent will be revealed on the day of the show. The mystery wrestler is hinted to be very beautiful and will also be a regular for Ganbare☆Wrestling in 2020.

Keisuke Ishii, Shigehiro Irie, Shota, Shuhei Washida and Shin Suzuki were all meant to be on the show but now they will not be there. Luckily a bunch of “joshi” replacements were quickly found.

GAKENOFUCHI JOSHI PRO “GAKEPPUCHI SNOW WHITE 2020”, 04/01/2020
Tokyo Itabashi Green Hall

1. Miyako Matsumoto Vs Chris Brookes

So much of the wrestling world’s attention will be on Japan this 4th January. For Gake no Fuchi Joshi to get some of that attention, they will need to put on a world class event that everyone would be proud to watch. To do this, the show will air live on Youtube with English and Spanish commentary options included (Shota will do the English commentary).

Chris Brookes is a completely new kind of opponent for Miyako Matsumoto. A really tall foreign male wrestler is something that Matsumoto has never fought before. Also Brookes has watched her previous Gake no Fuchi matches so he knows what kind of wrestling to expect from her. No rules have been decided yet but both of them like the idea of playing a game where they beat up Daisuke Kiso.

Matsumoto would like to hold Gake no Fuchi Joshi abroad in places like America and Britain. It would be affordable to do because the company only consists of one person (her) and everything else like the venue and opponent could be set up by a local promotion.

GANBARE☆WRESTLING “GANBARE☆JOSHI PRO WRESTLING 2020”, 02/02/2020
Tokyo Oji BASEMENT MON☆STAR

1. Special Singles Match: HARUKAZE Vs Yuu

Four years ago Ganpro held a joshi only show under the Ganbare☆Joshi banner. In February 2020 it will come back thanks to the referee Daisuke Kiso. He will produce the show using his experience working in places like Tokyo Joshi Pro and Stardom before it.

HARUKAZE has become confident in her ground game so she went looking for an opponent that could fit that aspect. Yuu with her judo background is the perfect choice.

Moeka Haruhi, Miss Mongol and Keisuke Ishii will be on the show.

DDT promised an authentic show for their visit to New York this week. They delivered on all ends and then some. In the main event Daisuke Sasaki avenged his defeat to Konosuke Takeshita at Sumo Hall by beating him to win back the KO-D Openweight Title! It went back and forth with Takeshita catching a dive outside the ring and turning it into a Brainbuster. In return Sasaki did a Diving Elbow Drop out of the ring onto Takeshita in the front row. Takeshita almost won with the Fable but Sasaki grabbed Yukinori Matsui to disrupt the flow. Takeshita leap frogged over the ref but Sasaki kicked him in between the legs as he landed. Sasaki hit another low blow and used the Sasaki Hurricanrana to grab the victory.

Sasaki celebrated the title win with Tetsuya Endo and Soma Takao in his company. He said “This is my championship!” But then something happened. Sasaki noticed that Endo was busy playing with his Right To Challenge Gauntlet during his speech so he knocked it out of Endo’s hands. Endo picked it back up and suddenly hit Sasaki with a Lariat. He grabbed the microphone, held up the Gauntlet and said “This is now.” Endo cashed in the Gauntlet to get his title match! Sasaki had some fight left in him but after four minutes, Endo hit the Shooting Star Press and shockingly became the new KO-D Champion! When the dust settled, Endo had something important to tell Sasaki… “Charisma, I’m sorry!” He explained that with so many fans here to see the show and some of them being pretty blonde haired women he couldn’t resist taking this chance to win the title. This belt is the symbol of DDT and Endo feels proud to win it for the first time. Sasaki accepted Endo’s apology. Endo wants New York to become his second home and promised everyone they will come back. “Remember us!”

DDT came up with a solution to any possible trouble Danshoku Dieno was going to cause with his behaviour. It was so genius in its simplicity. The announcer simply told fans to raise their hands if they wanted Dieno to kiss them during his entrance and many people did. Antonio Honda got to tell his Gon The Fox story in English. It was about Gon visiting the Empire State Building only to discover it was the Empire Big Dick. Dieno got “We Want Ass” chants as he fought off Joey Ryan & Royce Isaacs while the back of his tights were pulled down. It led to the big battle between Ryan’s dick and Dieno’s ass. Honda stuck his Gongitsune fingers into Dieno’s backside to charge them up but Dieno forced those fingers into Honda’s eyes. Ryan then stuck a lollipop into Dieno’s ass, placed it in Honda’s mouth and Super Kicked him for the win.

Both Miyu Yamashita and Maki Itoh were popular with the fans in their match. Yamashita beat Itoh after hitting a Back Spin Kick and the Crash Rabbit Heat. She wanted to shake Itoh’s hand after the match but Itoh gave her the middle finger.

The weapons for the Weapon Rumble included Antonio Honda doing his Hulk Hogan impersonation (which got booed to hell and back), plastic cases, a trash can, a bicycle, a box of “educational toy blocks” (we can’t say the brand name for legal reasons), a toilet and Chinsuke Nakamura. The ending came when Sanshiro Takagi put MAO through the plastic cases with the Sit Down Himawari Bomb.

Shigehiro Irie made his first appearance for DDT in six months to be part of the 3 Way Tag Match. He and Jason Kincaid reunited RENEGADES for the match. Ethan Page threw his weight around too. But amongst the chaos HARASHIMA hit Akito with the Buzzsaw Kick and finished him off with the Somato to win the match for himself & Kazusada Higuchi.

The Iron Man Heavymetalweight Title had a very busy night. During the show opening introductions Mr. HAKU brought out Saki Akai to explain the concept of the title to any new fans in attendance. Makoto Oishi ran out and cradled Akai to win the belt. Later the Rumble happened with Oishi now as the defending champion. Kikutaro was stopped from entering the match by the ring doctor because he had too high blood pressure. Colt Cabana was more interested in getting a kiss from Akai than wrestling her. Mizuki Watase piled several wrestlers into the corner and hit the Coast To Coast Dropkick on them. Yuu was the surprise entrant and she threw around everyone with her judo throws. Oishi eliminated Akai and Yuu but his momentum was cut short when Yoshihiko grappled him into a Half Crab to submit him. Kazuki Hirata countered Yoshihiko’s Reincarnation into a cradle to win the match. The result meant Hirata won both the Iron Man Title and Yoshihiko’s Right To Challenge Gauntlet. However Saki Akai got back into the ring and gave Hirata the Quetzalcoatl to win back the Iron Man Title. Hirata still holds the Gauntlet. At the end of the show Akai was chased back out to the ring by a bunch of wrestlers. The title changed hands to Oishi then Hirata then Itoh then finally Dieno to close out the show.

In the opener DAMNATION were victorious over Shuten-dōji with Endo getting Masahiro Takanashi to give up to the Modified Yurikamome Hold.


TOKYO JOSHI PRO “5th ANNIVERSARY ~FIVE YEAR OLD TOKYO JOSHI PRO WRESTLING~” Results

December 1, 2018

5. YUMI Debut Match: Saki Akai defeated YUMI with the Leg & Face Lock (6:15).
6. Yuu defeated Nodoka Tenma with the Last Ride (10:57).
7. Evening Before The Explosion! 5th Anniversary Special Best 2 Out Of 3 Falls 6-Woman Tag Match: Maki Ito, Shoko Nakajima & Riho (2) defeated Miyu Yamashita, Yuka Sakazaki & Mizuki (1).
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.

*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.

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

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.

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).

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.
