With Tokyo Joshi joining DDT in having shows cancelled by the coronavirus scare, they decided to give us a wee treat in its place. A one-day tournament that aired live from the Dojo with the winner receiving dinner coupons for Genghis Khan Kirishima, hence the convoluted name. It was taking place under what I shall refer to as snappy rules which were as follows:
Two count falls for the first three rounds with five minute time limits and janken tie-breakers.
Three count falls for the semi-finals with five minute time limits and one count fall tie-breakers.
Three count fall for the final with a ten minute time limit and a one count fall tie-breaker.
Thanks, as always, to ddtpro_eng on Twitter for all the translations.
Shows packed with tag matches are the kind that I might generally breeze past without feeling the need to review, but this one was headlined by Lana Austin’s title shot, which brought a sparkle that caught my eye. Throw in a couple of other exciting developments, and out of nowhere, this became one you wouldn’t want to miss. Why? Read on to find out.
Tokyo Joshi’s strong start to the year continued with another intriguing card to kick-off February. We’ve got Raku’s continued attempts to win a match, Maki going up against Pom and a new challenger for Yuka in the form of Lana Austin. How did things shape up? Well, read on to find out.
A trios tournament and Maki vs Yamashita made Tokyo Joshi’s latest trip to Osaka feel like a must-watch show. Throw in a couple more intriguing singles matches and, well, here we are, it’s review time!
January 4th might be Tokyo Dome day, but it’s quickly becoming Tokyo Joshi day too. Before making my way to Wrestle Kingdom, I wandered into Korakuen for the final time on this trip to watch a show with one hell of a card. Could it live up to it? Time to find out.
As has been the norm for reviews from this holiday, don’t expect too much in-depth detail. I don’t take notes and it’s much harder to write long reviews off of memory alone.
The build to January 4th is now well on its way in Tokyo Joshi as they begin to ramp things up ahead of their big show. We had a bunch of opponents facing off on this one as well as the next chapter in the Misao story, so I reckon we should get down to it.
Strap yourself in folks, because with approximately fourteen million matches on this card and a billion wrestlers, DDT’s trip to Ryogoku is going to be a long one. However, I have every faith it’s going to be a very good one, so don’t let that put you off.
TJPW and DDT are in midst of building to Ultimate Party, and I’ve largely left them to it so far. However, this show had a couple of title matches, so it seemed like the perfect time to drop by and say hi. Although someone needs to have a word with them about the two exclamation marks in the show name, if they go any further, they might slip into insane mind territory.
For Tokyo Joshi’s second day at the brilliantly named KFC Hall they had an International Princess Title defence on top. The first show provided a lot of entertainment without anything incredible happening in the ring, can this one go one better and deliver a great match?
