Preview: Gatoh Move ChocoPro #67 (11/22/20)

ChocoPro 67

This weekend, prepare for another action-packed episode of ChocoPro! On episode sixty-seven, fans will see the reunion of arguably the top team in Gatoh Move Pro Wrestling. They will work together to take on a fairly new pair that has been on a steady rise. In this battle of youth versus experience, which duo will emerge supreme? Take a deep dive into this upcoming episode of ChocoPro.

Yuna Mizumori vs. Trans Am Hiroshi

On the previous episode of ChocoPro, Yuna Mizumori battled Baliyan Akki in a fierce main event. Despite the best efforts of Yunamon, it was the self-proclaimed “Ace” of ChocoPro that emerged victorious. Despite this, Mizumori and Akki’s mutual respect for one another grew. This should come as no surprise given their history, not just on this show but Gatoh Move as a whole. The “Pineapple Girl” has encountered various challenges in wrestling, including veterans within the Japanese wrestling scene. This episode will mark another such challenge.

The last time that Trans Am Hiroshi was on ChocoPro was episode thirty this past July. On this episode, the yoga enthusiast teamed with Akki in a successful effort against Pencil Army. Since then, Hiroshi worked primarily in Pro Wrestling BASARA, even competing for the IRON FIST Tag Team Championship last month. Anyone that is familiar with his work will attest to the unique offense he boasts. Don’t let his lighthearted approach fool you; he is as formidable as any other competitor in Gatoh Move. This encounter should prove interesting.

Warm Caterpillars (Chie Koishikawa and Mei Suruga) vs. Reset (Emi Sakura and Kaori Yoneyama)

Following the traditional janken tournament on the previous episode of ChocoPro, Emi Sakura made an interesting observation. She said that Mei Suruga, the “Apple Girl” of Gatoh Move, has been undefeated since early October. This is true; since episode fifty-four, Suruga has come out victorious in all her ChocoPro matches. Most recently, she has seen success alongside the energetic Chie Koishikawa. As Warm Caterpillars, Suruga and Koishikawa were victorious over Tokiko Kirihara, Yuna Mizumori, Minoru Fujita and Antonio Honda. Will be this upcoming episode where their momentum comes to a screeching halt?

Last time on ChocoPro, Emi Sakura seemed to be back to her capable ways, picking up a dominant victory over Sayuri. For the last several episodes, Sakura has been working alongside Lulu Pencil, functioning as the underdog Pencil Army team. Try as they might have, they failed to pick up a victory. Despite this, anyone that has watched Sakura over the years will attest to her craftiness and overall capability. In addition to being a solid singles star, she has been something of a tag team specialist in her own right. Nowhere has this been more evident than in her partnership with Kaori Yoneyama.

Together, Sakura and Yoneyama have seen tremendous success as Reset. Since 2009, Reset amassed tag team gold in PURE-J and Ice Ribbon, just to name a few Japanese promotions. Today, they are the current reigning Asia Dream Tag Team Champions, the designated tag team title of Gatoh Move. They are currently in their second reign, having won the straps from Tropikawild, the duo of Mizumori and SAKI, back in March. While they have yet to defend the titles, it’s fair to say that Sakura and Yoneyama are the top team to beat in Gatoh Move.

Yoneyama’s last ChocoPro appearance was back on episode thirty-eight, when she teamed with Sakura to defeat the duo of Mizumori and Mitsuru Konno. Since then, Yoneyama has been working in different promotions, specifically World Wonder Ring Stardom. Under the guise of colorful Gokigen Death, her presentation can best be described as unorthodox. However, in her ChocoPro return, Yoneyama will do away with the clown makeup and colorful attire. Reset returns on this episode of ChocoPro; needless to say, Warm Caterpillars may be up against their greatest challenge to date.
