TJPW Princess Cup (31/7/22) Review

Don’t give up, Miu! Credit: TJPW

TJPW’s latest show saw us reach the quarter-finals of the Princess Cup, and our remaining competitors were an intriguing bunch. Miu is still my pick, but you could have convinced me that any of these eight would go the whole way. Despite that, there were clear favourites in each match, as Shoko, Yuka, Miyu and Rika are always hard to look past. The question was, would we see some upsets? Or would the established four march into the semis? Time to find out.

Somehow, we’ve finished up another month, which means it’s time for my favourite matches from the last 31 days. As usual, there is probably all sorts of cool stuff that I’ve missed, so if you have anything to recommend, pop it in the comments below and feed my disturbing wrestling habit. If not, enjoy the article, and if you have a few quid going spare, consider throwing it in the pot.

TJPW Princess Cup (23/7/22) Review

Unfortunately, Mizuki got ill before this show, causing her to drop out of the Princess Cup (sending Shoko Nakajima into the next round) and Koda to do some tweaking. Thankfully, it’s not COVID, and she should be back sooner rather than later, but fingers crossed she’s feeling alright. Less importantly, it throws a spanner into my Cup predictions. As much as I have Miu down to win this thing, I assumed that Mizuki would beat Shoko, earning herself a future (probably successful) title shot. Now, who knows what’s going to go down (yes, I have decided I was right about that), but I’m looking forward to finding out.

TJPW Summer Sun Princess ’22 (9/7/22) Review

I can’t imagine anyone reading this is interested in my private life, but I spent the last five days in a field, baking in the sun, drinking too much beer and watching loads of live music, so to say I’m a bit frazzled is an understatement. Therefore, if this is even more nonsensical than usual, you have to forgive me because that’s the law. And yes, I could have waited a day or two, but I was desperate to watch this show and didn’t want to.

With Miyu Yamashita, Maki Itoh and Yuka Sakazaki still in America, TJPW were missing a few big hitters for their first show in a couple of weeks. Thankfully, they had a plan. We’ve got a five-on-five tournament (with matches decided via a somewhat unique system) between senpais and kohais. Could the rookies pull off some upsets, or were the TJPW veterans about to defend their position? Let’s find out.

TJPW Spring Tour (15/5/22) Review

After their packed Golden Week, TJPW understandably took a week off to recharge. However, with CyberFight Festival less than a month away, it was time for them to back out there and start the build for that. Unfortunately, Yuka is still in America, so we’ll have to wait to see her and Shoko face off, but plenty of other people were around to pick up the slack.
