Synopsis

Miyawaki Yohei was a professional wrestler, who opened his own tofu shop after his retirement. He always tried to get his daughter Sakura interested in Pro Wrestling, but she never cared for it. Then the day came when he unexpectedly died, and Sakura inherited his dojo and tofu shop. Yasagi Eiichirou claims Sakura's father died without having paid his debt to her and the only way Sakura can repay this debt is if she wins the WIP (World Idol Pro Wrestling) championship. Together with his father's assistant, Yokoyama Yui, she opens the dojo again and trains together with her friends and girls from school.

Two live events were held after the show has finished airing: "The Real 2017 WIP CLIMAX" and "The Real 2018 WIP QUEENDOM".
