News has broken that not just one but two Tokyo Joshi Pro Wrestling talents would be letting their contracts expire with the company and will be finishing up with the company on September 21st 2020. The two talents in question are Natsumi Maki and Mina Shirakawa.
Natsumi Maki has been around the block as far as Joshi goes. She debuted in 2015 but since then has wrestled for almost every major Joshi promotion including TJPW, Stardom, Actwres girl’Z, Sendai Girls, and a number of others. Earlier this year she has a great match with Sareee that showcased her talents as she went in there with one of the worlds best and didn’t look out of place. At only 25 it’s likely she still has a future in wrestling and could return to AgZ or possibly head to Stardom full time.
Mina Shirakawa is a different story altogether. Debuting in 2018 she has never really strayed outside of TJPW, DDT, and Best Body Japan Pro-Wrestling. At 32 her departing TJPW is likely an effort to work a number of places before winding down unless she has something else up her sleeve.
