On ChocoPro #208, Baliyan Akki defended the Super Asia Championship against Ganbare Pro representative Ken Ohka in a Falls Out Anywhere Match. This was a chaotic battle that saw Akki and Ohka inside Ichigaya Chocolate Square and outside of the venue. Ultimately, Akki emerged victorious, retaining his title and earning the respect of his opponent to boot. Following the match, Gatoh Move Pro Wrestling Founder Emi Sakura called into the show. She announced that she will be making her ChocoPro return on the 2nd-anniversary event. Emi Sakura will be competing on this March 28 edition of ChocoPro, challenging Akki for the Super Asia Championship.

Emi Sakura to Make ChocoPro Return

What to Know Following Announcement

This episode of ChocoPro will mark the first that Emi Sakura has competed on since August of last year. Around this time, she announced that she would be making her way to America to compete for All Elite Wrestling on a full-time basis. Before she left, she wrestled one final match inside Ichigaya Chocolate Square, where she competed against, and defeated, her prized protege in Mei Suruga. Since that time, Sakura has wrestled primarily on AEW Dark and Dark: Elevation, even finding allies in the likes of Diamante, Vickie Guerrero, and former AEW Women’s World Champion Nyla Rose.

Despite forming Gatoh Move, Sakura has never been Super Asia Champion. However, she is a former 2x Asia Dream Tag Team Champion, having held the purple titles alongside Masahiro Takanashi and Kaori Yoneyama on separate occasions. Sakura also held the IWA Triple Crown Championship, rendering it a defacto secondary title in the promotion; the IWA Triple Crown title would become inactive in August 2017.
