Tokyo Joshi Pro Wrestling results from Tokyo, Japan 🇯🇵 at Korakuen Hall on 1/4/22 live on WRESTLE UNIVERSE:

Zyuria Nagano was introduced to the crowd before the show. She will be making her TJPW debut on 3/19/22 at Sumo Hall. Nagano is a neurosurgery nurse, a martial arts champion, and an actress.

Arisu Endo and Suzume beat Moka Miyamoto and Mahiro Kiryu when Endo submitted Miyamoto to a Camel Clutch.

Shoko Nakajima beat Hyper Misao in a Saving Tiger Ladder Match. There was a stuffed animal tiger hanging above the ring as the object to win. Nakajima did a big diving senton off the top of the ladder onto Misao then climbed up to grab the tiger. They were allowed to use weapons in the ring and Nakajima once again brought out the huge plastic Godzilla action figures instead of thumbtacks.

Miu Watanabe and Rika Tatsumi beat Yuki Kamifuku and Nao Kakuta when Watanabe pinned Kamifuku after the Tear Drop. Kamifuku at one point did the Famouser on Watanabe and Tatsumi together at the same time. When she tried it again, Watanabe caught her and gave her the giant swing.

Nodoka Onesan (aka Nodoka Tenma’s alter ego), Yuki Aino, and Haruna Neko beat Pom Harajuku, Raku, and Marika Kobashi when Nodoka pinned Harajuku after a Samoan Drop. Tenma is retiring in March. She asked Harajuku to take over the children’s character alter ego gimmick when she’s gone. Harajuku simply said “no” in comedy fashion. Kobashi is leaving TJPW in April but she said she doesn’t want to use the word retirement and could return one day. 

Yuka Sakazaki pinned Yuki Arai after the Magical Merry Go Round. It was a hard fought match for Arai who is really improving each time out. They story was that she got close here to a big win but she still needs more experience.

Maki Itoh won the International Princess Title from Hikari Noa with the Itoh Deluxe submission hold to win the title. The is the second time Itoh has held the title. She defeated Yuna Manase to win it the first time in October 2019 and she lost it to Thunder Rosa in January 2020.

Princess of Princess Champion Miyu Yamashita pinned Mizuki after the Crash Rabbit Heat. Very strong match with Yamashita retaining in her fourth defense and making her look almost unstoppable. Mizuki cried afterwards. She slapped away Yamashita’s hand when Yamashita wanted to shake hands then left to the locker room with Yuka Sakazaki (Mizuki and Sakazaki are the current Princess Tag Team Champions). Yamashita said he next defense will be on the 3/19/22 show. She called out Shoko Nakajima and Nakajima came to the ring to accept the title shot.
