For the first time in nearly a year, new Asia Dream Tag Team Champions have been crowned. At the most recent Gatoh Move Pro Wrestling Itabashi Green Hall event, Yuna Mizumori and SAKI, collectively known as Tropikawild, defended the Asia Dream Tag Team Championship. One of their opponents was Emi Sakura, the founder of Gatoh Move. Sakura teamed with Kaori Yoneyama, known for her appearances in such promotions as World Wonder Ring Stardom and YMZ Pro Wrestling. Together, Sakura and Yoneyama are known as “Reset.”

Despite their loss, Mizumori and SAKI remain the second longest-reigning Asia Dream Tag Team Champions. Since March of 2019, they successfully defended the purple titles against the likes of Makoto, Mei Suruga, and inaugural AEW Women’s World Champion Riho. Their reign is only surpassed by the fourth team to have won the Asia Dream Tag Team Championship, Sakura and Masahiro Takanashi. Together, they held the championship for 511 days, from March of 2017 to August of 2018.

Sakura and Yoneyama’s recent title win is notable for a number of reasons, too.

This marks the first time that Yoneyama had won the Asia Dream Tag Team Championship. Meanwhile, this marks the second Asia Dream Tag Team Championship victory for Sakura, who hadn’t held the title since 2018. This isn’t to say that Sakura and Yoneyama are unfamiliar with each other as partners. Since 2009, they have won tag team gold across promotions including Japanese Women Pro-Wrestling Project and Ice Ribbon.

Reset is the eighth team to become Asia Dream Tag Team Champions.
