Tonight 10am JST/8 pm EST/ 1 Am GMT LIVE on youtube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4gTbzIS1zSM

It's another big ChocoPro show as the promotion's resident hoss Yuna Mizumori (Yunamon) celebrates her 3rd Anniversary as a wrestler by being knocked the gently caress out by the legend AJA KONG.

Notably this is the first time Aja Kong has appeared in ANY Emi Sakura booked promotion.

Yunamon was clearly saving herself for today in yesterday's opening match, so get ready for a war!

With new eyes on the product, thanks to the AEW women's eliminator tournament, the wrestlers at ChocoPro have been going all out for their big matches.

Yesterday's physically and emotionally gruelling main event being a prime example, winning MOTYC on this forum as quickly as any ChocoPro match has.

(Western Joshi fandom can overhype a meme wrestling match, and ChocoPro is a prime example of what most would consider a meme promotion, but watch it and see the big match Choco style that starts with low comedy and ends with high drama)

Here's the link:

Match Card from ChocoPro super fan Dogglesnake on Reddit:

quote:

Keep Moving Forward, Koishikawa!

“Frantic Fencer” Chie Koishikawa VS “Blue Flame” Sayaka Obihiro

EGG TART was defeated! Chie, the Haunting Hero of Ichigaya, will need to get back on her feet after losing her very first title match. Luckily, she proved herself more than worthy (and even quite close behind her seniors!) and her quest too is not yet over. This time, she battles her own hero & mentor, Obi! The Blue Flame might not have grabbed MVP last season like she wanted, but with her blazing manuevers and technical mastery she might just make you a believer for this one! Expect a real spectacle here, these two usually have great chemistry...and Chie is on the rise!

The Wind & the Dancer: Striking Battle!

Baliyan Akki “The Wind of Change” VS “Super Rookie” Otoki

Akki, the Ace of ChocoPro, has once again proven himself to be able to surpass any Mountain that he comes across. The Wind shapes even Stone! With EGG TART behind him now, his journey continues with another bout against the Super Rookie! It has been a long time since they last clashed, and it should be another spicy affair. Otoki is arguably the physically strongest of the Fourth Generation, a former kickboxer...with a penchant for judo throws! This pairing is always a sensational sight! Otoki matches are intense...don't get her angry, Akki! COMANECI!

Tropical Danger!!! Reward for Yunamon: Aja Kong arrives!

Mei Suruga & Yunamon VS Emi Sakura & Aja Kong

Three years of Yunamon! The Tropical Idol has graced us with her powerhouse aura, her great songs, her creativity for three years! MVP of the first season, Yuna Mizumori has been an integral part of the story of ChocoPro, Gatoh Move, and now even moves into AWG! A naturally charismatic, naturally talented, total joy to watch. Now, we celebrate her passing one of the big milestones of her wrestling career. She will be joined by her rival, Mei Suruga (The Genius of ChocoPro and recent AEW Eliminator challenger) in order to take on a new threat to the Chocolate Square. Can these two combine their super striking and submission power? Will all their techniques, all their pinning prowess...can they hope to even damage this team..? Lets go Tropical!

Emi Sakura is the Master of ChocoPro, the founder of Gatoh Move, Ice Ribbon, and countless other accolades. Her influence has helped shaped the Joshi scene, her impact on wrestling is huge. This Queen loving Queen can dish out power, speed, and technical skill like no other! Having returned now from the Eliminator, she has managed to convince one of the other challengers to appear in the Chocolate Square for Yunamon's special day. What a gift! Aja Kong is an absolute legend, the term not being used lightly. The founder of Arsion, having been originally trained in AJW, famous for her wars with other legends of the past (including in the WWF!), her timeless (and brutal) style, her commanding presence and ability to dominate even all these years later! Aja Kong has never appeared in Ichigaya before this episode, it will be her first time in the ChocoPro Arena. What destruction will she be able to cause? What havoc awaits for Mei & Yunamon?

as someone who hasn't been able to keep up with all the Gatoh Move/ChocoPro streams outside of stuff I randomly see on Twitter while it's on, I appreciate bigger shows getting their own GDTs, and also that they're having shows at the bafflingly early time of 10am JST so I can watch it at 8pm over here

I can't even pull myself out of bed and walk three feet to my desk to WFH by 10am consistently, how the gently caress does anyone wrestle that early? maybe they sleep in the dojo

This could be the most one-sided fight since 1973 when Ali faced an eighty-foot tall mechanical Joe Frazier. My memory isn't what it used to be, but I think the entire Earth was destroyed.



I still need to finish yesterday’s show and I will probably be in the YouTube chat for tonight, but I love that there are now enough posts per show to justify a gdt. Super psyched for Aja Kong. We gotta figure out what her emoji is so I can spam it in chat

Obi having to battle Hagane last minute has to be nerve wrecking. I'm also nervous excited about Aja and Chie in the ring together.

i feel like chocopro is going to end up generating a whole bunch of mat wrestlers who put zsj or daniel bryan to shame just by virtue of, yknow, only having a mat

even split between that and people who wind up in wwe or whatever and get briefly confused in a match when they can't find a window to jump through

Akki went over this on #91, touching the edge of the mat counts as an escape for submissions, but not pins.

With pins so long as the shoulders are on the mat it counts.
