Results, October 30-November 4
There were fewer shows this week than normal. Toshie Uematsu even found time to take a short vacation with her girlfriends.
With WAVE off this week, the work-week action was pretty much limited to CHICK FIGHTS SUN offer matches at ZERO-ONE MAX shows. The winners were Nanae, Aja, Nanae; the losers were Natsuki, Saki, Natsuki. Oh, and the AWA is threatening to strip Saki's title because of the thing in Hawaii where she had to clean the john after losing to Tracy Taylor. Oy vey! SUN does everything either so right or so so wrong.
Friday night saw the JWP crew at Itabashi Green Hall. Highlights included Arisa Nakajima losing to NEO's Yoshiko Tamura and the team of Kuragaki, Haruyama, and Yoneyama beating Hyuga, Toyota, and Keito.
MUGA World is a men's indy, run by Fujinami. Recently, his protege Osamu Nishimura quit, took a good youngster with him, joined All-Japan, and is publicly comparing Fujinami to Kim Jong-Il and Fidel Castro. Well, they needed some talent and Gran Hamada often works this promotion, so darling daughter The Ayako came to help, along with The Other Ayako (Sato). Hamada won, of course. They claimed 1600 fans, but I saw photos and 160 is more likely.
The biggest joshi show of the week was today, as NEO ran Korakuen Hall for the "STAND OUT 2007" event. First, it was announced that Kyoko Inoue gave birth to a baby boy on Friday. Mother and baby are said to be find and Kyoko will soon have the operation to remove the fibrous uterine growth that complicated the pregnancy. She wants to return to the ring next spring.
At the show, Youth Green beat the "It Was Youth" team. Toshie did the honors over Miki Ishii, the oldest Ice Ribbon girl. She's actually the mom of one of the girls but decided she wanted to play as well. Haruka Matsuo was successful over Sakura Emi in her first title defense; the crowd was said to be totally pro-Emi. The main event saw Tamura and Misae Genki beat Ayako Hamada and Kaoru Ito to bring the NEO Tag belts home, as Genki used the G-Driver on Ito.
