Fresh off her title win at Grand Princess 2023, Rika Tatsumi makes the first defense of her championship against Billie Starkz. Despite only debuting in TJPW in late 2022 this will be the second title match Starkz has had in the promotion, she previously challenged for the Princess of Princess Championship in December.

This could be a real show-stealer of a match even if Tatsumi retaining is almost a guarantee.
TJPW’s Top Stars Collide
Magical Sugar Rabbits vs 1tomillion is a pretty massive match for TJPW to do in LA. Sakazaki and Yamashita are two of the most dominant performers in TJPW history while Itoh and Mizuki are two of the most popular. In addition, the Rabbits are multi-time tag team champions and one of the most decorated teams the company has ever seen.
With the titles on the line all four are sure to leave it all on the line in a match that could end up being one of the standout bouts of WrestleMania week.
