Tokyo Joshi Pro Results 5/1/21: Go Home Show To Korakuen Hall On 5/4
Tokyo Joshi Pro Wrestling results from an undisclosed location in Japan 🇯🇵 live on WRESTLE UNIVERSE on 5/1/21:
Sayuri Namba had Rika Tatsumi and Yuki Kamifuku in the ring with her to welcome viewers. This is a no fans show at a studio dojo because of schedule and format changes with the state of emergency in Japan. Kamifuku spoke in English and they plugged the May 4 show at Korakuen Hall that will also air live on WU with all titles on the line: Tatsumi defends the Princess of Princess Title against Miyu Yamashita, Kamifuku defends the International Princess Title against Hikari Noa, and Princess Tag Team Champions Sakisama and Mei Saint-Michel vs.Mirai Maiumi and Suzume. The 5/5 show will be live as well on WU with no fans.
Miu Watanabe, Hikari Noa, and Raku performed songs as customary to open the show. Yuki Kamifuku jumped in the ring from behind them and told Raku and Watanabe to leave. She intimidated Noa to build up their match on 5/4. She then made Noa leave the ring and demanded to open the show for once. She did a sexy pose on the ring and said in English “Let’s Get Started Baby!”
Nodoka Tenma pinned Moka Miyamoto after a diving splash from the second rope.
Mirai Maiumi and Suzume beat Maki Itoh and Arisu Endo when Maiumi pinned Endo after a backdrop suplex.
Nao Kakuta pinned Hyper Misao in a special rules match. If I understood everything correctly, they had to hit a button in the corner which would play a song from the group Juice Juice. They only had until the song stopped playing to try to get the pin and it was a two count to win instead of traditional three. Kakuta got the pin after Misao rushed her in the corner but Kakuta moved out of the way and Misao hit chest first.
Yuka Sakazaki and Mizuki beat Shoko Nakajima and Haruna Neko when Sakazaki pinned Neko after a brain buster. Really good fast paced match. Sakazaki accidentally hit Mizuki with a sliding lariat on the apron then bumped her down to the floor seconds later in the middle of all the action. Sakazaki, Mizuki, and Nakajima will face off in a #1 con. Princess of Princess Title 3-Way Match on 5/4.
Hikari Noa, Pom Harajuku, and Raku beat Yuki Kamifuku, Mahiro Kiryu, and Yuki Aino when Noa pinned Kiryu with the Blizzard Suplex.
Rika Tatsumi and Miu Watanabe beat Miyu Yamashita and Marika Kobashi when Tatsumi submitted Kobashi with the Dragon Sleeper. Tatsumi said she wished she could have beaten Yamashita today but she will finish her on 5/4. She reminded viewers that the upcoming shows will be just live streams until fans can be allowed to attend again once the state of emergency is lifted.
This was a solid fun show that didn’t let up and wrapped up in less than two hours.
