Professional wrestling career Edit

On December 11, 2016, at the DDT Pro-Wrestling event "Road to SUPER SAND-Dramatic Dream Tonkotsu-" in Fukuoka Hakata Star Lane, Ito made her official professional wrestling debut, where she was defeated by Miyu Yamashita. On March 13, 2017 at At This Time, Get Excited In Nerima! Ito was defeated by Mil Clown in a three-way match also featuring Maho Kurone.

After her dismissal from the idol group LinQ, Ito stopped using the group's song Calorie Nante as her entrance theme, instead choosing to perform an on-the-spot acapella version of the Noriyuki Makihara song Mou Koi Nante Shinai. This continued until the beginning of October 2017, when she began entering to Setsunairo by Tokiwoikiru.

In July, Ito participated in the "Tokyo Princess Cup" held at Shinjuku Mura Studio. In the first round, she fought against Shoko Nakajima, but was eliminated.

Maki made her US debut at DDT Coming to America where she wrestled Miyu Yamashita. The next day she appeared at Joey Ryan's Penis Party event organized by Joey Ryan where she fought in a multi-man match for the Ironman Heavymetalweight Championship, but was defeated by the champion Yoshihiko.

In 2019, Ito's long-standing tag team with her partner Mizuki, Ito Respect Gundan, was officially disbanded after a singles match between the two. Ito later recruited British wrestler Chris Brookes to replace Mizuki, renaming the team to "NEO Ito Respect Gundan". After leaving his tour of Japan and returning to the United Kingdom, Brookes continued to represent the Neo Ito Respect Gundan by wearing the team's official T-shirt and using Ito's trademark kokeshi headbutt during shows.
