Joshi News: Tomorrow’s 19 Pro Card, Title Update (Updated)
19 Pro has announced the card for tomorrow’s broadast, also an update on prior news:
The IW19 Singles Championship is now VACANT. Although it was never publicly announced the request by now-previous champion Chii Tomiya to vacate the title was accepted. Said request came after Tomiya’s 2nd defense, which happened on 7/22 against Makoto, went to a time limit draw. Tomiya didn’t agree with that even though per title stipulations the champion retained the title (unlike other Ice Ribbon titles, where a draw means the champion is stripped of the title). A possible title match was hinted at tomorrow but it will not happen. No word on when a match to crown a new champion will be held. More as it becomes available.
Makoto Final 19 Pro Match: Makoto & Chii Tomiya vs. Tsukushi & Kurumi
Tsukasa Fujimoto & Hikaru Shida vs. Kaori Yoneyama & Hikari Minami
It is possible that tomorrow’s episode will begin an hour early and be a 2-hour episode (6-8 PM JST/5-7 AM ET) and also include the Ice Ribbon Korakuen pre-event meeting from 6-7 PM. No matches are scheduled for the first hour.
