The major show of the week was held by NEO, featuring the second round of the STAGE tournament. The semifinalists will be Kyoko Inoue, Etsuko Mita, Hiroyo Matsumoto, and Yuki Miyazaki. The matches will be drawn by lot at the February 8th show. Remember, Hiroyo upset Yuki in the finals last year and it seems that Miyazaki might be playing a bigger role as a singles wrestler this year, with Genki retired and the tag titles off of the Machine Gunz.
Other results included the Sendai girls beating the MAKEHEN ladies, Arisa Nakajima losing her 3rd anniversary match to Azumi Hyuga in some sort of ridicilous eating contest, and Dump bloodying Mizuki Endo while Hotta & Takako laughed. Oh, and Rumi Kazama told the fat drag queen that he better lose weight or there will be no more Glamorous Angels in LLPW. Yeah, sure.
