NikkySan emerges from the entrance hallway, and walks toward the ring. He climbs into it, and is handed a microphone. The song slowly fades into silence.NikkySan:

1. Tsukushi X (6:13, Stretch Plum) O Pinky Mayuka The first match begins between two of the promotion's youngest wrestlers, Pinky Mayuka and Tsukushi. Both shake hands out of sportsmanship, then the bell rings. The two trade rest holds for around a good two minutes, when the match starts to pick up when Pinky lands a dropkick.
It was back and forth action between them, but Pinky sees an opening, and locks in the Stretch Plum and makes Tsukushi submit.
2. Ryo Mizunami & Ayako Sato O (8:22, Uranage Suplex) X Kagetsu & Tomoko MoriiThe next match was tag team match, featuring more of WJP's younger stars. The two teams seem evenly matched, not showing any signs of weakness.
About three minutes in, Sato is tagged in; she starts to execute a flurry of very stiff looking dropkicks to Kagetsu. Kagetsu fights back, and attempts a Spinning Samoan Drop, but Sato slips out of it and lands a German Suplex Hold, only for the count to be broken by Morii.
Towards the end of the match it was Mizunami and Morii trading blows. Morii has Mizunami stunned and hits the ropes for a lariat, but Mizunami ducks and reverses it into an Uranage Suplex for the 3 count.
3. Command Bolshoi & Megumi Yabushita X (13:45, Fisherman Buster) O Chikayo Nagashima & Sonoko KatoThe third match was another tag team match, featuring two teams with drastically different styles.
The match started off with Bolshoi and Nagashima, who start off with quite the display of technical technique. Bolshoi eventually gains the advantage, and grabs hold of Nagashima’s arm for a Wakigatame. Kato quickly breaks up the hold before her partner can tap. Bolshoi tags in Yabushita and she starts to work on Nagashima’s arm and shoulder, which seemed to be hurt from Bolshoi’s submission attempt earlier. Yabushita attempts a Jujigatame, but Nagashima grabs hold of her own arm, trying to prevent it from being stretched. Nagashima manages to get her foot on the ropes, and the referee makes Yabushita break the hold.
Nagashima is finally able to tag in her partner, Kato, and she immediately overpowers Yabushita with some kicks. With Yabushita stunned, Kato climbs to the top rope and hits a diving somersault attack on her opponent for a two count. Kato and Nagashima attempt to double team Yabushita, with Kato laying her down on the mat, setting her up for a diving foot stomp from Nagashima. Bolshoi however, interferes and knocks Nagashima off the turnbuckle, while Yabushita puts Kato in a very vicious sleeper hold. Kato somehow manages to get to the ropes however, and the crowd applauded.
Nagashima gets the tag back in, as does Bolshoi, and both trade moves. Nagashima hits her Half Nelson Suplex Hold for a close nearfall, and Bolshoi almost scores the win with the Limelight. In the end though, Bolshoi attempts to make Nagashima submit with the Sensei Hold II, but Nagashima reverses it into a backbreaker followed by a Fisherman Buster for the win.
4. Leon X (13:53, Rolling Elbow) O Ran Yu YuThe two women stare each other down for what seemed like 10 seconds. Ran extends her arm, offering a test of strength, but Leon falls for her trap, and Ran quickly traps her into the European Clutch for a very close near fall. Ran quickly picks Leon up and whips her to the ropes; Leon ducks under an elbow and hits a Spear on the rebound. Ran retreats to the outside of the ring, where Leon sees this as an opportunity, and takes Ran out with a No-Hands Springboard Plancha.
Leon climbs back into the ring, and appeals to the crowd, the crowd cheers right along with her. Ran eventually gets back into the ring and gets whipped into the corner. Leon goes for a corner spear but Ran extends her leg and catches Leon in the head. Ran then bounds off the ropes and hits a flying knee strike for a two count. Ran picks up Leon and attempts to hit a Sheerdrop Brainbuster, but Leon flips out of it, and attempts a KIBA Suplex, but Ran fights her way out, and hits an elbow strike, stunning Leon. She then traps Leon into a Cross-Armed Gogoplata. Leon slowly, but surely finds her way to the ropes before she is choked out.
Ran, feeling a little frustrated, whips Leon into a corner and sets her up for an avalanche Samoan Drop. But Leon manages to escape Ran's clutches and knocks Ran off the top rope. Leon then hits a Senton Atomico for a two count. Leon head up to the top again, looking to land her Mad Splash, but Ran gets her knees up. Ran then hits a Sheerdrop Brainbuster and goes for the cover, but Leon gets her shoulder up at 2.5. Ran yells out in frustration, and gets up, waiting for Leon to stagger up. She then hits the ropes and hits the Rolling Elbow to score the win.
5. Kaori Yoneyama O (14:12, US Zou) X AKINOAs soon as the bell rings, the two women charged towards toward each other full speed, trading dropkicks and armdrags, eventually both turning around and staring off. The crowd applauses and cheers after the amazing sequence. The two women then decided to take a more technical approach, and start chain wrestling, escaping from each other's head locks and headscissors. Soon AKINO would gain the advantage and locks in the Crossface. Yoneyama quickly scrambles to the ropes.
AKINO drags her back into the middle of the ring and attempts to lock in a Jujigatame, but Yoneyama rolls out of it and counters with an Indian Deathlock Muta Lock. She holds it in for around 30 seconds but AKINO doesn’t submit, so Yoneyama turns it into a Bow and Arrow Hold. She eventually tires of trying to make AKINO submit so she picks her up drags her into corner, where she does several Bootscrapes to her opponent. Yoneyama heads to the opposite corner and charges toward AKINO, looking to hit a dropkick, but AKINO slips through the ropes and Yoneyama's dropkick misses. AKINO then climbs to the top rope and retaliates with a Missile Dropkick.
AKINO picks her up, and Yoneyama is staggering, so AKINO decides to try to hit the Tornado-A, but Yoneyama ducks and counters with a Jumping Rolling Sobat, AKINO is stunned and Yoneyama hits the US Zou for the upset victory.
6. MsChif X (19:43, Uraken) O Aja KongThe penultimate match of the show is between Aja Kong, a very respected and feared veteran of Joshi Puroresu, and MsChif, one of the top female wrestlers in the US, and a former SHIMMER Champion.
The two stare each other down, with MsChif walking forward right in front of Aja, bellowing out an ear piercing screech. Aja doesn’t flinch. The referee signals for them to go to their respective corners, and signals for the match to start. As soon as the bell rings, MsChif dashes out of the corner and attacks Aja with a flurry elbow strikes, forcing Aja to retreat to the outside of the ring. MsChif wastes no time however, and follows her to the outside of the ring as well, grabbing a pile of chairs and throwing them at Aja, wearing her down. MsChif then climbs to the top of a turnbuckle, and dives on to Aja with a Diving Body Press. MsChif gets back into the ring, as the referee starts to count out Aja.
Aja, now very angry, climbs back into the ring, MsChif already tries to overwhelm her with more elbow strikes, but Aja just shoves her off. MsChif hits the ropes, but Aja counters with a Lariat for a very close two count. It was now Aja on the offense, and she repeatedly attacks MsChif’s back with a series of stiff kicks. MsChif clings to the ropes, while Aja continues to go to town on her back. The referee gets Aja to get away from the ropes, but Aja doesn’t give a damn, and goes back to working on MsChif’s back. She then drags her into the middle of the ring and applies a Boston Crab. MsChif screams in agony. The crowd starts to get riled up, wondering if MsChif will submit. She dosen’t however, and slowly, but surely makes it to the ropes.
The audience applauded the American for her resilience. Aja picks her back up, and looks to put her away with a Vertical Drop Brainbuster. MsChif escapes however, and knocks her down on her feet with a dropkick. She then applies a Double Leg Muta Lock to Aja. Aja, for the first time in the match, shows signs of pain and defencelessness, as she moans in pain. MsChif sees that she’s not giving up, and tries something else. She climbs up to the top rope, and hits a missile dropkick to Aja’s skull. She then drags Aja to her feet and attempts the Desecrator. Aja shoves MsChif off again. MsChif now has another trick up her sleeve. When Aja finally stands up again, MsChif attempts to spit a Green Mist into Aja’s face. Aja ducks it, and hits a backdrop suplex for another very close two count. Aja is done playing games, she picks MsChif up and hits an Uraken on her for the victory.
7. Emi Sakura X (25:10, Destiny Hammer) O Azumi HyugaIt was now time for the main event, the match everyone had been very keen to see.
Emi Sakura is the first to enter the ring, and proceeds to the blue corner of the ring. Azumi Hyuga is the second and walks to the red corner. They were both very eager to wrestle each other, and shook hands before the match started.
The bell rings, and the match begins. The crowd shouts in excitement, calling out to Hyuga and Sakura. They both seemed to have an equal amount of fans. The two start with a test of strength, which would see Sakura gain the advantage. She has Hyuga on the ground, her body in an arch. Sakura attempts to drive her body down into the mat by using her feet, but Hyuga sticks her legs out, and pushes off Sakura into a dropkick. She picks her up and whips her into a corner, and drives her knee into Sakura’s stomach. Hyuga then hits a Double Underhook Backbreaker, and flips her on to her stomach and puts her in the Romero Special. The crowd oohs and aahs at the unique submission hold. Sakura doesn’t submit though, so Hyuga breaks the hold and picks her back up.
She attempts a German Suplex Hold, but Sakura fights her way out of Hyuga’s arms, and counters with a Double Underhook Facebuster for a two count. Sakura moves Hyuga to a corner and heads to the opposite corner for a Running Corner Crossbody, but Hyuga slipped through the ropes and counters with a Missile Dropkick. She then hits her Rolling German Suplexes for a two count.
Hyuga picks Sakura up and attempts to hit her Michinoku Driver II, but Sakura escapes it and reverses it into a La Magistral for a very close nearfall. Sakura then plants Hyuga with a Tiger Driver for another nearfall. The crowd is getting very loud now, the match seemingly in Sakura’s favour. Hyuga helps herself up with the ropes, and Sakura sees this as an opportunity to hit a Running Crossbody on her through the ropes. But Hyuga dashes from the ropes and catches Sakura by surprise with a running Shining Apprentice. Sakura is staggering, and Hyuga climbs to the top rope and waits for Sakura to stand up. By the time Sakura stands up it’s too late, and Hyuga hits the Destiny Hammer for the victory.
The crowd goes wild, cheering after such an amazing match. The crowd starts to chant Hyuga’s name, as blue streamers fly into the ring. Hyuga’s theme plays as she stands up and the referee holds her arm up to show her as the victor. Hyuga turns to Sakura, who is still a bit shaken from the match, and helps her up. She holds up Sakura’s arm, and the crowd starts to chant for Sakura. The two women shake hands and hug, thanking each other for the great match.
NikkySan re-enters the ring after and thanks everyone in the building for making WJP’s debut show such a success. The WJP theme song plays and the lights dim, signalling the end of the show.(NOTE: I apologise if the match write-ups seem shorter than what the matches say how long they went, so think of them more as the highlights of the match.)
