Results, December 20-31
Here's to catching up on joshi puro results over the last 2 weeks of 2007. Back before Xmas, Cherry & partner beat Miki Ishii & her partner at Union while the Fuuka Kidd saved children's presents from Black Santa and Fuuka & Minoru Suzuki beat Kikutaro & Muscle Sakai at the Fuuka Matsuri #2. WAVE's mini-tour of Kobe and Osaka went well for Yumi Ohka, racking up 2 victories in Kobe and the main event in Osaka, as she teamed with Sonoko Kato to beat GAMI and Kyoko Kimura. Battle royales were also popular, as Apple went out early and Yuu Yamagata late in K-DOJO's and Arisa Nakajima won the Santa battle royale in JWP because nothing reminds me of a jolly old man like a bitchy Japanese teenage girl. Saki Maemura beat Fuuka in the SUN Chick Royale at ZERO-1 MAX's Christmas Eve show.
NEO and Ibuki also worked on the 24th. The highlight of the NEO show was an upset in the main event, as Kyoko Kimura and Atsuko Emoto beat tag champs Yoshiko Tamura and Misae Genki in a non-title bout, courtesy of Kimura's Big Boot to Genki's face. This is setting up a future title shot. Emoto and Kimura both won their matches in Ibuki as well. Other winners were Apple Miyuki, beating ex-dojo mate Tomoka Nakagawa and Misaki Ohata, upsetting her regular tag team partner Hiroyo Matsumoto in the main event.
JWP's final regular show of 2007 was on the 28th. Highlights included Nanae Takahashi kicking Nakajima's ass and a time-limit draw between tag champs Kayoko Haruyama and Tsubasa Kuragaki. Azumi Hyuga pinned Tojuki Leon in the main event, which featured the entire JWP roster. JWP gave out yearly awards: Leon won technical ability, Arisa won fighting spirit, Command Bolshoi got a special award, Kuragaki & Haruyama vs Takahashi & Taiyo on 12/9 was the bout of the year, and Hyuga was the 2007 JWP MVP.
Sendai Girls' final show was on the 29th. There was the first victory as a team for the newly christened Cross Sisters (DASH Chisako & Sendai Sachiko), beating Tomoka Nakagawa and returning hometown girl Misaki Ohata. The main event saw Tyrannosaurus Okuda make her 2nd defense of the JWP Junior/POP titles in little over a month, getting revenge on Hiroyo Matsumoto for the humiliating loss at last year's show.
The final show of 2007 was the 5th Junior All Stars, sponsored by JWP and held at Korakuen Hall. In the opener, two girls born in the 1990s battled, as NEO's Nagisa Nozaki beat JWP's new face Mayuka Niizeki. Sendai's Cross Sisters won the First Sisters War, beating MAKEHEN's Purple Thunder Sisters (Mio & Io Shirai). Tomoka Nakagawa won the Daily Sports Cup and a spot in the next match, where Shu Shibutani used a new submission finisher called the Satanico to beat Misaki Ohata. The semi-main event was Junior Graduation and Natsuki*Taiyo and partner Fuuka won when Taiyo used her Taiyo*Bomb on Yumi Ohka to beat her and Mai Ichii. The main event had Arisa Nakajima, Hiroyo Matsumoto, and Hanako Kobayashi agaisnt Tyrannosaurus Okuda, Aya Yuki, and Aoi Kizuki. Nakajima got the last laugh, as she hit the Cutie Special and got the pinfall on junior champ Okuda. I'm sure this feud will continue and a title rematch will happen sometime in 2008.
Awards at the Junior All Stars were: Photogenic-Shirai Sisters, Fighting Spirit-Cross Sisters, Best Bout-Nakajima/Matsumoto/Kobayashi vs Okuda/Yuki/Kizuki, and MVP-Nakajima.
