Iím a super casual wrestling fan but I watched the AEW womenís tournament since it was free on Youtube and thought it was very good and wanted to see more of these women, so that lead me to ChocoPro and

well

how am I supposed to enjoy watching any kind of wrestling that doesnít have a pair of windows leading to a small alley outside after this? Why does everyone insist on using rings when a small dentistís office is so obviously the superior choice? Turns out Emi Sakura is a loving genius

I havenít watched a weekly show of any kind in over 15 years and only got back to watching things a couple times a year 5 years ago, but ChocoPro might be the best wrestling Iíve ever seen. Itís dumb as hell in all the best possible ways and genuinely hilarious, I love everything about it, absolutely everyone there is just the best. Iím like two weeks in and already incredibly invested in the buildup to episode 100, the only problem is that I can't watch the shows live since they start at 3 AM for me

Featuring Akki accusing Mei of being salty about the blue belt coming back but never advocating for it.

As soon as he was done with his promo, Emi says "Well Mei did bring up having the blue belt come back in the past but I forgot and then spontaneously brought it back for you and Fujita"

So Mei at once became 100% justified for being mad that she isn't in the title match and Akki 100% became the heel for being cocky about this opportunity that just fell into his lap.

Perfect ChocoPro.


edit: also Emi admitting that she added the Pure-J title match to settle an ELEVEN YEAR OLD GRUDGE SHE HAD WITH JWP

IceAgeComing
Jan 29, 2013

pretty fucking embarrassing to watch

Trying to figure out what that grudge would be and then I looked up that hair match against Yoneyama and that was October 2010 so unless itís something behind the scenes it probably is related to that; especially with Yoneyama being involved.

Really good match: itís on YouTube and itís worth a watch.

Dumb question, but I see titles on the line for ChocoPro now, are they going to be a long-running thing or just something for ChocoPro 100?

The Asia tag/singles titles will likely be a long-running thing, the Pure-J title isn't going to change and will go back to its home promotion.

I thought the redtext someone dumped on you was in bad taste and a bit much so here's a corgi instead.

The titles are actually belts that go back to 2016. The Super Asia Title was only ever held by Riho & was vacated when she left, Asia Dream Tag Titles were won by Emi & Yonemama just before ChocoPro launched (the 2nd last Gatoh Move show with fans)

PURE-J title is the singles belt of the promotion PURE-J

CHOCOPRO #101/LULU PENCIL #95: THE BATTLE OF THE MICRO INDIES CHOCOPRO VS. HEAT-UP
Today Live On Youtube
Time: 10am (JST) / 2am (BST) / 6pm (PDT) / 9pm (EDT)

Match Card from Robbie Stutter at Last Word On Wrestling

quote:

This past weekend, Gatoh Move Pro Wrestling held its landmark ChocoPro #100 two-day event. To say that this was monumental for the little promotion would be an understatement. In addition to action from Gatoh Move regulars and guest stars alike, viewers saw a new Super Asia Champion crowned. ChocoPro #101 keeps the action rolling, though under intriguing guidelines. This show will be a collaboration between Gatoh Move and Pro Wrestling HEAT-UP.

To provide context, Pro Wrestling HEAT-UP is a Japanese wrestling promotion owned by Kazuhiro Tamura, or simply TAMURA. The promotion in question was founded in 2012, its mission statement being to produce matches so ďhotĒ that viewers could feel them, hence the name, HEAT-UP. Gatoh Move talent have competed for HEAT-UP in the past, and on ChocoPro #101, stars from both organizations will be showcased. Hereís a rundown of what to expect.

Emi Sakura and Sayuri vs. Chie Koishikawa and Rin Rin

In this collaborative event between Gatoh Move and HEAT-UP, this will be the sole match where only the former is represented. ChocoPro #101 will open with Emi Sakura and Sayuri joining forces to take on the fourth-generation tandem of Chie Koishikawa and Rin Rin. Both Sakura and Sayuri saw their fair share of success on ChocoPro #100, though the same can be said for Koishikawa. Meanwhile, Rin Rin was the only one who came up short during her ChocoPro #100 Day Two match. Nonetheless, one shouldnít count ďMCĒ Rin Rin out, as she will enter HEAT-UPís domain with the intent to win. Expect this to be an exciting opening match.

Daisuke Kanehira vs. SHINGO

Next on ChocoPro #101, Daisuke Kanehira will take on SHINGO in singles action. Kanehira is one half of the HEAT-UP Universal Tag Team Champions alongside Tetsuya Izuchi, who will be competing in this showís main event. Kanehira has wrestled for HEAT-UP since 2014, even winning the promotionís Universal Title in 2018. Many have considered him the ďAceĒ of HEAT-UP. Prior to becoming a wrestler, he was involved in MMA, winning more than 40 fights. On ChocoPro #100, he will take on SHINGO, who was a professional cyclist before entering wrestling. It was in 2018 when he entered the HEAT-UP dojo, his dream being to become a wrestler. Itís important to note that Kanehira and SHINGO have worked together in the past. Last month, they teamed up to pick up a win over TAMURA and Raimu Imai. Now that Kanehira and SHINGO are opponents, what will come of this encounter?

Lulu Pencil vs. TAMURA

No ChocoPro event would be complete without involvement from the General of Pencil Army. Lulu Pencil has had a prominent spot on both days of ChocoPro #100, and while she failed to win on either day, her trademark earnest approach and unorthodox offense were on full display. On this episode, she will battle the founder of HEAT-UP himself, TAMURA. In addition to making his share of appearances for Gatoh Move, TAMURA is the current Universal Champion, a title that he has held twice. TAMURA won the title for the second time in August of 2019 in a match against Mad Dog Maxx. Additionally, TAMURA has faced off against many notable names in Japanese wrestling, including Minoru Suzuki and Tatsumi Fujinami. Given Lulu Pencilís unconventional wrestling style, TAMURAís grounded, technical approach should make this bout nothing short of interesting.

Best Bros (Mei Suruga and Baliyan Akki) vs. Tetsuya Izuchi and Hiroshi Watanabe

ChocoPro #100 could best be described as bittersweet for Best Bros. While they were successful in retaining the Asia Dream Tag Team Titles on Day One, Day Two didnít yield the same fortune. Not only did Mei Suruga fall to current TJPW star Mizuki, but Akki lost in the Super Asia Title main event to Minoru Fujita. Simply put, Best Bros took with the good with the bad. However, ChocoPro #101 will mark a new beginning for Suruga and Akki, as they enter this showís main event to take on a team looking to give their guests a welcome they wonít soon forget.

On this episode, Best Bros will battle the duo of Tetsuya Izuchi and Raimu Imai. Alongside Kanehira, Izuchi serves as one half of the HEAT-UP Universal Tag Team Champions; they won the titles in a tournament final match against Hide Kubota and Kenichiro Arai. Armed with a vicious German suplex, Izuchi is a legitimate fighter as well, having trained in jiu-jitsu. Teaming with Izuchi, on ChocoPro #101, will be Hiroshi Watanabe, a veteran wrestler in HEAT-UP and throughout Japan. Prior to this, he was a trainee under New Japan Pro Wrestling, developing a more traditional approach to professional wrestling. Boasting a devastating backdrop, Watanabe is a strong partner for Izuchi as they prepare to take on Best Bros.
