There is no clear update on the Yuka Sakazaki front. 

Earlier this year, Tokyo Joshi Pro Wrestling shared that Yuka Sakazaki would be graduating from the promotion and her final show is December 1st. Starting in 2024, she would be based in the USA. 

In June, Sakazaki had to be pulled from a TJPW event due to a neck injury and doctors would not clear her to compete. She had to relinquish the Princess Tag Team Championship she was holding with Mizuki.

The latest on Sakazaki came from TJPW and the promotion noted that she is still undergoing treatment. It is unknown if she’ll be competing at the aforementioned December 1st show. Her being cleared or not is based on the opinion of her doctor. 

The former Princess of Princess Champion has not wrestled since May 5th. Sakazaki returned to the USA in March for Ring of Honor Supercard of Honor where she challenged Athena for the Women’s World Championship.
