Maki Itoh Says She Wants To Channel Her Inner Kenny Omega And Become 'Best Bout Machine Maki Itoh'

Maki Itoh discusses her current goals in TJPW and the promotion's upcoming show in the United States.

Throughout her near seven year run with the promotion, Maki Itoh has experienced quite a bit of success in Tokyo Joshi Pro Wrestling. In the past three years alone, Itoh has won the International Princess Championship on two separate occasions and has formed a tag team with Miyu Yamashita.

In a new interview with Fightful, Itoh said that she wants to eventually win the promotion's top title, the Princess Of Princess Championship, but that she also wants to channel her inner Kenny Omega

"The current goal is to win the Princess of Princess Championship. The second goal is to be like Kenny Omega, making Match of the Year, year after year after year. Best Bout Machine Maki Itoh."

Itoh also discussed TJPW's upcoming event in Los Angeles on Friday, March 31 and how she's been waiting a long time for the company to come to North America.

"I have been waiting so long for this day to finally happen. Many people have probably seen me in America, it’s common to see me and Yamashita in America now. Wrestlers go from Japan to America often. You can see me normally, but most people have not seen Tokyo Joshi Pro Maki Itoh, which is different than what you see in GCW or AEW. There are some moves that you can only see me do in Tokyo Joshi Pro."

Elsewhere in the interview, Itoh discussed her partnership with Nick Gage and her intentions to take the GCW World Championship from him. Fans can learn more by clicking here.
