Joshi News: Ice Ribbon Star Defects To SMASH, 8/5 19 Pro Results (Updated)
Looking by the title of this post, you probably know who I’m talking about but if you don’t, everyone’s favorite joshi jobber, Makoto, is leaving Ice Ribbon effective after the 8/21 event at Korakuen. She will be joining SMASH. The announcement was apparently made during or after today’s episode of 19 Pro (results below) as she announced she was transferring to SMASH but she also had one last request: One more shot at the ICEx60 Singles Title. Challenge accepted by current champion Tsukasa Fujimoto. That match will happen on Sunday at the Ice Ribbon School (they might’ve done tomorrow but the card had already been announced). Naturally Makoto swore she’d win and take the belt to SMASH with her. We shall see. Sounds like at the very least it’s the next step towards her ultimate goal of becoming a WWE Diva. Seriously.
Ice Ribbon has not yet announced Sunday’s card. Tomorrow’s card is headlined by the International Ribbon Tag Team Title re-rematch of Makoto Oishi & Chou-un Shiryu defending against Hamuko Hoshi & Mochi Miyagi.
As for 19 Pro, the show returned today after a break last week, results from the Ice Ribbon School:
Tsukushi beat Kurumi in 7:05.
Kaori Yoneyama & Hikari Minami vs. Tsukasa Fujimoto & Makoto went to a 19 minute time limit draw.
UPDATE Ice Ribbon posted these comments from Makoto, loose translation:
“It is the next woman and Makoto of the ice ribbon
With the Korakuen conference on the 21st, making [sumatsushiyu] transfer, it came to the point of receiving
It is truly abrupt, you do not see…

How please look at your own life even from now on and, have delivered
Makoto of ice ribbon”
Makoto will work all Ice Ribbon events between now and Korakuen on 8/21. Also confirmed was the Makoto-Fujimoto title match for Sunday. And there may have been a hint something like this was coming-earlier this week the graphic ad on Ice Ribbon’s website for their mobile site featuring Makoto was changed. Makoto was replaced in the ad-it now features Mochi Miyagi.
