The tournament is slated to take place at the Wrestle Princess 8 event. It will consist of eight participants all vying to capture the title. Thunder Rosa captured the title this past May defeating Maki Ito for the title. It took place at the TJP New Year Dish Pro Wrestling event. While the news of her having to surrender the title is quite disappointing for her it does lend itself to new opportunities for others.
