Lulu Pencil Announces US Excursion; Will Assist Emi Sakura

At ChocoPro #144, Lulu Pencil announced that she would be accompanying Emi Sakura on excursion to the United States.

The plucky Pencil Army leader confirmed, in a similar manner to Sakura, that she too had a ticket to the USA and would be serving as Sakura’s assistant during her return to the States.

It was not confirmed whether this meant that Pencil would also be appearing on AEW television but it certainly places her in the vicinity of Tony Khan’s promotion.

The trip will mark Lulu Pencil’s second foray outside of Japan, having wrestled in the UK for Pro Wrestling EVE back in 2019.

One of Sakura’s many disciples, Lulu Pencil is part of the fourth generation of Gatoh Move trainees, alongside several current ChocoPro stars such as Chie Koishikawa, Tokiko Kirihara and Sakaya.

Though without a win in her three-year career, Lulu has become a huge fan favourite in ChocoPro and has been part of one of the promotion’s most memorable rivalries opposite DDT Pro’s Chris Brookes.

As for Emi Sakura, she has one final ChocoPro match to take care of, wrestling another of her proteges, Mei Suruga, prior to returning to All Elite Wrestling.
