Another week has come and gone. We start with some miscellaneous action from last Monday, the 14th. Natsuki*Taiyo had a successful homecoming to her hometown of Kawasaki, as she used her Taiyo*Bomb to defeat Saki Maemura in a tag match at a ZERO1-MAX show. Also on Monday, the 5th VKF/Wrestle Naniwa show ran in Osaka. Apple Miyuki teamed with Antonio Honda to beat Kikutaro and Milk. I don't know who Milk is. Carlos Amano and Ran Yu-Yu beat new friends Chikayo Nagashima and Sonoko Kato when Ran used an Elbow Smash on Sonoko.
WAVE is now only going to run one weekday show a month. This month's was on Wednesday the 16th. Mika "Megaton" Mizunuma lost her WAVE debut to GAMI and is rumored to possibly be joining WAVE on a regular basis. Shu Shibutani teamed with Ran and used the Satanico on Asuka Ohki, who was partnered with Toshie Uematsu. The main event saw Yumi Ohka and Arisa Nakajima go to a time-limit draw.
Sendai Girls ran a one-day tournament on Friday the 18th. The winner gets a title shot against the OZ champion, who is currently Carlos Amano. The first round went as expected, as Tyrannosaurus Okuda beat rookie Mari Harada and Ryo Mizunami handled DASH Chisako. A surprise in the semis, as Sendai Sachiko used a German Suplex and then an armbar that forced Okuda to tap out and suffer her first loss to one of her classmates. Mizunami defeated Hiren, and then won her 3rd match of the night over Sachiko to claim the trophy and the title shot.
Sunday saw both JWP and NEO running dojo shows, and Apple Miyuki, Yuu Yamagata, and partner Taku Anzawa defeated at K-DOJO by Apple's usual partners. There was also a special MAKEHEN party that featured the first singles match between Mio & Io Shirai.
