ChocoPro Season 7 Wraps Up; Fujita Retains & Several Announcements

Post Match shot of ChocoPro #125

ChocPro season 7 came to a conclusion this weekend with a doubleheader of shows that saw the Super Asia Champion, Minoru Fujita, making a successful defence against Mei Suruga in a 55-minute war at ChocoPro #125.

Despite Suruga throwing everything she had at the champ, including the kitchen sink when she stopped to waterboard Fujita at one point, she couldn’t pick up the victory.
The match was presided over by Suruga’s tag partner, Baliyan Akki, and as the match progressed it did appear as if he couldn’t be an impartial referee as he began cheerleading for Mei.

Ultimately, Fujita got the pinfall victory over the game Surgua after she refused to submit and was put to sleep with a vicious looking submission hold.
Post-match Yuna Mizumori appeared to throw down the gauntlet for a future title match against Fujita.

On ChocoPro #126 the following day, Suruga was in surprisingly good spirits, despite the devastating loss. Teaming with Baliyan Akki as The Best Bros, they headlined the season-ender against the team of Yuna Mizumori & Chie Koishikawa. The Best Bros came out victorious, continuing their winning ways as ChocoPro’s premier tag team, as they beat Chie with a double pinning combination to close out ChocoPro season 7.

Several announcements were made in advance of Season 8:

  • It was confirmed that we would see ChocoPro return on June 23rd.
  • Yuna will indeed challenge Minoru Fujita for the Super Asia Championship, at a date to be determined.
  • Lulu Pencil will get a one on one match against the betrayer of the Pencil Army, Chris Brookes.
  • There will be an 8 team Tag League.

The details of the tag league are still to be fully set out, but it was suggested at the closing of the show that the teams would be announced in the lead up to June 23rd and the start of Season 8. Also that the Tag League may utilise a block format.

All of ChocoPro’s shows can be watched live and for free on their YouTube channel.

We’ll keep you updated here at ITR as more information comes out about the upcoming Season 8 Tag League.
