TJPW Winter (23/2/22) Review

Mid-week TJPW is always a treat, and while Itoh and Miyu are still on the bench thanks to COVID, everyone else is back. With Wrestle Grand Princess creeping ever closer, let’s hope we can keep it that way.

TJPW Winter (5/2/22) Review

GYAU! Credit: TJPW

With the Rona once again running wild in Japan (thanks, Omicron), TJPW were forced to reshuffle this card after a host of new cases and close contacts. That meant Moka, Itoh, Noa and Kamiyu were out (and fingers crossed they’re all doing okay), but, on the upside, Raku is back! The Train God is here to make sure that everything will be okay.

TJPW Winter In Kobe (8/1/22) Review

Probably not how Itoh would have chosen to spend her afternoon. Credit: TJPW

While Ittenyon may take place in the new year, it is really the exclamation mark on the previous one. With it out of the way, Tokyo Joshi can move forward into 2022 and start the build towards Sumo Hall, their biggest show yet. What will join Miyu vs Shoko on the card? Well, it might be a while before we find out, but we’ll certainly start to get some ideas.

TJPW Yes! Wonderland (4/5/21) Review

Can the Diamond Ass prevail? Credit: TJPW

Korakuen may have been empty, but Tokyo Joshi were in town, and as I’ve been saying a lot recently, I can’t remember the last time they came to this building and put on anything less than an incredible show. Normally, the lack of a crowd would have me worried that their streak was about to come to an end, but look at this card! I think we’re in safe hands.

TJPW Still Incomplete (17/4/21) Review

Itoh goes for the big one. Credit: TJPW

Tokyo Joshi is a company with a plan. The way they book their titles suggests it’s all been laid out in advance, each piece of the puzzle slotted in to open up a spot for the next. The question is, what happens when things change? Not the unavoidable bad change, injury or retirement, but the good one, where a wrestler takes off in a way that you maybe didn’t expect. I suspect the plan was always for Maki Itoh to challenge Rika Tatsumi on this show but had Tokyo Joshi expected her to be coming in after making international headlines? Will the temptation to grab a few more of those cause those plans to be launched out the window? Well, it’s time to find out.

TJPW Spring Tour ’21 ~ The Bullet ~ (27/3/21) Review

I would love to know who comes up with the Tokyo Joshi show names. What made them decide on this part of the tour being labelled, ‘The Bullet’? It seems awfully violent for a company that generally goes with things like ‘Winter Lovers’ and ‘Change the Wind Direction’. Is this what happens when Itoh goes to AEW and spends time with those people?
