The world of Gatoh Move Pro Wrestling never sleeps, and as such, it’s time to gear up for ChocoPro #113! Three singles matches are set for tonight’s show, including the return of a former Gatoh Move titleholder. When the action takes place in Ichigaya Chocolate Square, expect nothing short of the unexpected. Without any further ado, let’s take a deep dive into the action set for this upcoming edition of ChocoPro.
Kaori Yoneyama vs. Sayuri
Opening ChocoPro #113 will be a showcase of joshi puroresu’s past and its future. Kaori Yoneyama‘s last ChocoPro appearance took place on Day One of #100, where she successfully defended the PURE-J Openweight Championship against Yuna Mizumori. Since then, Yoneyama held the title until last month, where she lost it to Rydeen Hagane at PURE-J’s Fight Together event. World Wonder Ring Stardom fans will also recognize Yoneyama as Oedo Tai‘s melancholy clown, Fukigen Death.
Shedding the clown makeup, the veteran mischief-maker will battle Sayuri, the “Kunoichi” of Gatoh Move. Despite her peers facing Yoneyama on several occasions, this marks the first time that Sayuri has ever battled Yoneyama. Keep in mind that Yoneyama is a former Asia Dream Tag Team Champion as well, making her that much more of a challenge. Will Sayuri be able to utilize her ninja-like offense and technique to overcome the wiles of her elder opponent? Tune into ChocoPro #113 to find out.
Lulu Pencil vs. Sayaka
Next up is a showcase of two fourth-generation Gatoh Move stars. On one side of Ichigaya Chocolate Square will stand Lulu Pencil, the commanding officer of Pencil Army herself. Not only is she a leader, but she’s been able to increase her numbers, adding not only the Super Asia Champion, Minoru Fujita, but her former rival in Chris Brookes. The latter, however, recently went AWOL following the team’s loss on episode ChocoPro #110; said loss was followed by Brookes verbally running down Lulu Pencil, who submitted, costing Pencil Army the victory. Though the massive 8-person tag team match left a bit to be desired for Pencil Army, Lulu Pencil’s resolve can’t be denied.
Lulu Pencil’s opponent will be Gatoh Move’s “Beautiful Cosplayer,” Sayaka, who has done fairly well for herself since returning this past March. Back on episode #109, she teamed with Sayuri and Chie Koishikawa to defeat the Pencil Army duo of Lulu Pencil and Emi Sakura. Thus, one must imagine that Sayaka feels confident heading into this singles match. A victory over the earnest Lulu Pencil would greatly benefit the cosplay enthusiast. On the flipside, the never-say-die mindset of the Pencil Army leader may bring her to her first singles victory.
Baliyan Akki vs. Trans Am Hiroshi (ChocoPro Main Event)
Wrapping up ChocoPro #113 will be a singles showdown pitting Baliyan Akki, one-half of the Asia Dream Tag Team Champions, against the unorthodox yet formidable Trans Am Hiroshi. Last time, on ChocoPro, Akki teamed with Actwres girl’Z Champion SAKI in a match against the duo of Emi Sakura and Chon Shiryu. In fact, many of Akki’s big matches of late have been contested under tag team rules. With that said, Akki can more than hold his own as a singles competitor. Given the challenge factor Hiroshi poses, the self-proclaimed “Ace” of ChocoPro can’t be dangerously confident.
Japanese wrestling fans will be familiar with the outlandish yoga enthusiast due to his work in various promotions. Trans Am Hiroshi has been particularly active in Pro Wrestling BASARA and DDT Pro, being a former KO-D Eight-Man Tag Team Champion for the latter. Hiroshi’s last ChocoPro appearance took place this past February, on episode #88. It was here where he bested Lulu Pencil in an unusual yet entertaining encounter. Hiroshi’s trickery may have led him to victory on multiple occasions, though he will have to bring more to the table if he plans on having his arm raised by the end of this encounter. A victory would be even sweeter for Hiroshi as he celebrates his 10-year anniversary in pro wrestling.
