Results, Sept. 22-25
One straggling results from the 22nd, as Apple Miyuki actually won and Yuu Yamagata lost at a K-DOJO show.
Sunday the 23rd was busy. Mariko Yoshida presented Ibuki #17 from Shin-Kiba 1st Ring. Highlights included the boss beating Tomoka Nakagawa and the team of Kyoko Kimura and Cherry beating Shu Shibutani and Aoi Kizuki. As you can see, Aoi ate Kyoko's big boot. Kimura had very harsh words for the youngsters after the match.
Also on Sunday, SUN was in Chiba with their one-day Passion Cup Tag Tournament. The winners were Hikaru and Atsuko Emoto, winning three matches to claim the prize. They beat Aja Kong and the mysterious ZEST.CO, then Shu Shibutani and Kana, and finally Hikaru used the Lanakilla-H on Natsuki*Taiyo to beat Taiyo and Nanae Takahashi in the final.
WAVE was at the New Delfin Arena in Osaka. Azumi Hyuga, as expected, defeated Yumi Ohka, but Yumi scored her first victory in WAVE by winning the 14-woman Battle Royale, beating GAMI at the end.
Finally, some of our old favorites showed up at an IWA-Japan show at Shinjuku FACE. Jaguar Yokota's team was disqualified, but Dump Matsumoto and Sasori beat Jumbo Hori and Sachie Abe.
Monday also saw three shows. The afternoon show at Itabashi Green Hall featured JWP. Misaki Ohata beat Aska Ohki and challenged Arisa Nakajima for the junior titles. This will happen next month. Manami Toyota used the Queen Bee Bomb on Tsubasa Kuragaki. Kuragaki challenged Toyota to get a partner, as she would put the JWP Tag Title on the line. Tsubasa is still upset about losing the JWP Openweight title to Manami last year and feels that she needs to beat Toyota for her career to advance. Tojuki Leon scored the pinfall in the 6-woman tag main event, using the noki-A Backbreaker on Kaori Yoneyama.
That evening, NEO was at Itabashi. Yoshiko Tamura got back on track, victimizing Tomoka Nakagawa with the Patriot Buster. The drama was in the main event, as new champion Haruka Matsuo struggled with veteran Etsuko Mita. Mita remembered the good old days of LCO and gave Haruka a good beating. Finally Matsuo resorted to cheating to get a cheap victory. Where is NEO going with this?
The OZ Academy was in Nagasaki. Carlos Amano teamed with Dynamite Kansai against Mayumi Ozaki and Devil Masami. Carlos pinned Devil, but Masami turned around and immediately won the battle royale which followed, pinning Chikayo Nagashima with a Liger Bomb to end the show.
The 25th is Tuesday, and Tuesday means WAVE. Unfortunately, Tuesday only meant joshi for 49 people, as they continue to struggle at the gate. KAORU and Shu Shibutani won in their final match as a team before Shu's trip to Mexico. Shu hit a senton and KAORU followed up with the Valkyrie Splash to beat "Dark Mask" Bolshoi (i.e. GAMI). Yumi Ohka fell short again, losing to Ran Yu-Yu in a rather long match, 26 minutes. GAMI was upset with Ohka for her losing streak and wants her to regain her lost honor by beating Hiroyo Matsumoto in an upcoming show. I guess it's time to bring the caliber of opposition down to Yumi's level.
Also, Toshie Uematsu beat Saki Maemura at a ZERO1-MAX show. I guess Saki's plan to make Toshie a stepping stone didn't work. I think everyone expects Jamie D will give Saki a big ass-whipping in the upcoming AWA title match.
