I’m trying to transfer over the http://www.wrestlingwithdemons.net address. But in the meantime, head to Blogger today for news on the indie wrestling star in Hustler Magazine plus NOAH and Choco Pro 5 results coming up later today (cheap clickbait, I know).
Ice Ribbon results of their no fans show from Saitama, Japan 🇯🇵 at the dojo on 4/11/20 and streaming live on YouTube for the first time and simulcast on Nico Video https://www.youtube.com/user/iceribbon
A couple of changes to the card: it was supposed to be Banny Oikawa vs. Satsuki Totoro but Oikawa is out after undergoing a dental procedure this week. Totoro will now face Maika Ozaki. Suzu Suzuki was to face trainee Ishikawa in an exhibition match but Ishikawa’s temperature was a little high so that match is now scratched in the lineup out of precaution.
Fans have the option of donating tips in the chat room because their has been no live gate/paying fans due to the virus pandemic.
At the moment there will be more live streaming no fans shows set for 4/18, 4/25, 5/2, and 5/4.
Satsuki Totoro vs. Maika Ozaki
Ozaki got the pin after a diving senton.
Thekla vs. Akane Fujita
This is Fujita’s first match back in Japan after a few weeks. She was here in the USA, and had several bookings set up, but then all of those shows got canceled due to the virus shutting things down. When she came back home to Japan she was in quarantine after traveling.
Fujita got the pin after a driver.
Tsukushi and TsukasaFujimoto vs. Risa Sera and Mochi Miyagi
They went to the time limit draw just as it looked like Fujimoto was about to get a pin.
The action went to the floor early on with Fujimoto and Tsukushi using a baby stroller as a weapon to run over their opponents.
Fujimoto will face Sera on next week’s show.
Yappy vs. Hiragi Kurumi
Kurumi got the pin after the top rope splash.
Maya Yukihi and Ibuki Hoshi vs. Suzu Suzuki and Hamuko Hoshi
Suzukipinned Ibuki after a series of near fall reversals between the two.
This was a fun event that came off like a solid house show. All the wrestlers stopped by to the announcers desk between matches to chat with fans in the chat rooms watching the simulcast. It was a good introduction to Ice Ribbons for people who haven’t seen the product before.
Chocolate Pro Wrestling 4 results from Tokyo, Japan 🇯🇵 at Ichigaya Chocolate Square on 4/10/20 and live on YouTube https://youtu.be/YkprVeBMs64
Mei Suruga vs. Antonio Honda
Honda got the win by a choke submission as Suruga tried to take him down with a backslide.
Yuna Mizumori and BaliyanAkki vs. Emi Sakura and Chris Brookes
Brookes somehow managed to fit through one of the windows and did a diving knee drop on Akki. Sakura later followed up and gave a splash to one of Akki’s legs then acted like she was riding a surfboard standing on his leg.
Brookes submitted Mizumori with a Manji Gatame for the win.
Chris Brookes won the Tropical Yahoo Game over everyone else to win the chocolate prize. He gave his prize to Suruga.
This is Emi Sakura and Antonio Honda’s new project. It’s of course a no fans show with the virus from the cafe that Gatoh Move usually runs at.
Sakura and Baliyan Akki greeted everyone. Antonio Honda sang “(I Can’t Get No) Satisfaction” by The Rolling Stones in English as the roster warmed up.
Antonio Honda vs. Lulu Pencil with Emi Sakura as the referee
Honda got the win by submission after countering an attempted abdominal stretch.
Yuna Mizumori vs. Mitsuru Konno
They went to a 10-minute time limit draw. Good match starting off with submission attempts then hitting finishers for near falls followed up by countering pin attempts several times in a row.
EmiSakura and Baliyan Akki vs. Chris Brookes and Mei Suruga
Brookes and Suruga pinned Akki with a double team jackknife as Sakura was late making the save.
Brookes towers over everyone else on the roster. At one point they did a “chicken fight” spot and he had to crouch down so Suruga’s head didn’t smash through the ceiling. He gave Suruga a basketball after the match and folded up his arms to make a “hoop” for her to use.
They did a Janken Tournament with chocolate as the prize. Lulu Pencil won it.
Miyu Yamashita, Hikari Noa, and ring announcer Sayuri Nanba are among the Tokyo Joshi Pro roster and crew featured in an ad for a Japanese energy drink. https://youtu.be/N5OETj8CKFg
Yamashita, Shoko Nakajima, Mina Shirakawa, and Pom Harajuku of TJPW all had high profile cameo roles in a big fight scene earlier this year on the CBS show “S.W.A.T.” in the episode titled Ekitai Rashku https://youtu.be/j_LJwjBSCn8
Gatoh Move has canceled all of their shows that were scheduled from 4/18/20 to 5/6/20, as well as 6/22, 7/5, and 8/17. It looks like the company will be on indefinite hiatus because of the ongoing virus pandemic.
Company owner/wrestler Emi Sakura is also currently out of action with some sort of back injury.
The one night GAEA Japan return event to celebrate the 25th Anniversary of their first show has unfortunately been postponed due to the virus pandemic. It was supposed to take place on 4/15/20 at Korakuen Hall.
They wanted to make sure this was going to be a major nostalgic event and didn’t want to risk continued postponements with the unsureness of the virus disruptions.
There is no new exact date yet but the show will not take place now until January 2021 at Korakuen Hall.
