Results, September 9-15
JWP had a dojo show on the 9th. The pictured rookies, Arisa Nakajima and Aska Ohki, went to a 15 minute time-limit draw. I'm not sure if this means anything in the big picture or if this is just an opportunity for them to have a longer singles match without someone to carry them. Command Bolshoi won the main event for her team with a "Chestnut Strike". I didn't know joshi wrestlers had chestnuts.
Also on the 9th, Kyoko Kimura and Bullfight Sora were in a mixed tag match at a Big Japan show. Kimura got the pinfall, using a diving senton.
Tuesday the 11th featured a WAVE show. Yumi Ohka lost again in her "Resurrection" series against big names, dropping this match to SUN ace Nanae Takahashi. Toshie Uematsu and Ran Yu-Yu won again, this time over GAMI and Bullfight. Toshie then challenged Yumi and that is next week's main event. After a good crowd for the debut, WAVE has drawn only 55 and 86 fans, respectively, for the last two shows. GAMI has responded with lower ticket prices and deals for locals who live near Shin-Kiba and for students.
On Saturday the 15th, there were two SUN offer matches at ZERO1-MAX's show in Akagi City. Saki Maemura is temporarily off of jobber duty, beating Bullfight Sora, who seemingly lost in every single match held this week. I think Saki will pick up a few more wins until her AWA title shot against Jamie D. Then she'll get killed and things will return to normal. Nanae Takahashi teamed with S-Ovation youngster Hiroyo Matsumoto and they beat Shu Shibutani and Natsuki*Taiyo.
