Preview: TJPW Additional Attack (6/17/21)

TJPW Additional Attack

Tokyo Joshi Pro (TJPW) returns to Korakuen Hall on June 17th for Additional Attack, featuring two big title matches. 

Nodoka Tenma, Yuki Aino, Raku and Pom Harajuku vs Suzume, Haruna Neko, Moka Miyamoto and Arisu Endo

The show starts off with an eight woman tag team match. All of these women had some great showings during the CyberFight Festival and even put on some of the best work of their careers. Nodoka Tenma is the veteran of the group and will easily be the standout performer of the match. Others who have had some great performances as of late include Suzume, who challenged for the tag titles and is really pushing herself during tag matches when she gets her time to shine. This will be a typical opener for TJPW but there is plenty of talent in there that will be the future of the company. 

Shoko Nakajima vs Kaya Toribami

After having her debut during CyberFight Festival, Kaya Toribami will have her first ever singles match against one of the best wrestlers on the roster, Shoko Nakajima. During her debut, Kaya Toribami had one of the most impressive first matches of anyone on the roster and being in front of the packed Saitama Arena only makes it even more impressive. Even when Kaya worked with the lesser experienced wrestlers, she already looked head and shoulders above everyone else, so going against someone at the level of Shoko is going to make her look even better. While the identity of the woman under the mask is unknown, she certainly doesn’t wrestle like she has just started. Undoubtedly Shoko will get the victory but this will definitely be one to watch. 

Yuki Kamifuku and Nao Kakuta vs Miu Watanabe and Mahiro Kiryu

Partners Mahiro Kiryu and Kamiyu switch places in this match as Kamiyu teams with Nao Kakuta and Mahiro teams with Miu Watanabe. Miu was one of the standouts during her match at CyberFight, especially when she managed to bodyslam two people at once. Once again, Nao and Kamiyu both had a good lengthy run in their matches at CyberFight, especially Nao who proved exactly why TJPW signed her from AWG. With the Princess Cup coming up soon, these women will want to start getting into a good rhythm as they all have a good chance of heading to the top of their careers. 

Mirai Maiumi vs Yuki Arai

Idol from SKE48, Yuki Arai also has her first ever singles match as a member of the TJPW roster and she goes up against Mirai Maiumi, one of the hardest hitters in the company. Arai is another one of the TJPW rookies that has been doing great despite only working a handful of matches. Mirai as always has been improving her power game which really works for her since a lot of the roster works either a fast style or is somewhat smaller than she is. This will be another good match up but unfortunately for Arai, she is going to get demolished by Mirai. 

Yuka Sakazaki and Mizuki vs Rika Tatsumi and Hyper Misao

Yuka Sakazaki and Mizuki team up again after Yuka only just missed out on the Princess of Princess championship during her tough battle with Miyu at CyberFight but it was certainly a match of the year worthy performance from her. Whenever the Magical Sugar Rabbits team up, they show exactly how fluid they are as a team – so going up against a team as good as Hyper Misao and Rika Tatsumi will be super exciting on this big show. Misao and Rika both had standout performances during their CyberFight tag match. Since Rika lost her title, she has been proving that she is still one of the best in the company. This will undoubtedly be a fantastic match, if Yuka and Mizuki manage to pick up yet another win they could be looking towards the tag titles. 

International Princess Championship: Hikari Noa vs Marika Kobashi

Hikari Noa has her first title defense since defeating Kamiyu for the title last month. This match comes out of their interactions during their CyberFight match, where Marika Kobashi and Hikari showed some good chemistry that left a lot of fans wanting more, which is exactly what they’re getting in this. Hikari has been doing some incredible work since winning the title and even though this is her first defense, she is already positioning herself with the other skilled wrestlers on the roster. Since it seems that they’re putting a lot of faith in Hikari right now, it shouldn’t be a surprise to anyone that she should win her V1 but don’t take your eyes off Marika, especially with the Princess Cup coming up. 

Princess Tag Team Championships: NEO Biishiki-Gun (Sakisama and Mei Saint-Michel) vs Miyu Yamashita and Maki Itoh

The show caps off with a huge main event for the Princess Tag Titles. Miyu is coming off her big victory at CyberFight, which included closing out the show with the legendary Naomichi Marufuji and Jun Akiyama. This match is a bit of a rematch to their encounter during the Max Heart Tag Tournament, in which NEO Biishiki-Gun ended up winning the entire thing to get the tag title opportunity. All four of these women have been breaking boundaries in getting international attention onto their work and rightfully so. If this match is anything like the one they had previously, then this is going to be another career performance, especially for the less experienced Maki Itoh and Mei Saint-Michel. Although Miyu could easily become a double champion in this one, NEO Biishiki-Gun have only lost once since Sakisama and Mei have teamed together and that was against Maki and Miyu.
