Results, February 22-28


The joshi news dump this week is pretty sparse. On Monday during an indy show was the retirement ceremony for Nozomi Takesako. You may or may not remember her from her IWA Japan work a few years ago. She was injured a few days ago and subsequently married and had a child (and I think she married the infamous Chocoball Mukai, although I'm not 100% sure on that). This seemed like a belated send-off from her sleazy indy friends. Good luck to the Chocoball Family.

The biggest news angle-wise happened at the WAVE show on Wednesday. Mayumi Ozaki has been lurking and inviting Yumi Ohka to join her in the Ozaki-gun for several weeks. They had a singles match and Ohka scored a big win, pinning Ozaki with the Neck Hanging Bomb. Then, much to the shock of GAMI and the rest of WAVE's wrestlers and crowd, Okha then announced that she was joining with Mayumi. Ozaki, Ohka, and Takako Inoue will team at OZ Academy's next show on March 14 against KAORU, Aja Kong, & Tomoka Nakagawa. I'm sure this will spice up WAVE booking as well.

Very little happened over the weekend. Ice Ribbon had the usual pair of small shows at their home ring, and both NEO and JWP had dojo shows. JWP will get back in the swing next month, as the OCC League will resume to determine Kayoko Haruyama's next challenger and the tag tournament will fill the vacant JWP/Daily Sports championships. NEO is geared up for the big 10th anniversary show at Kawasaki City Gym (on March 14). In addition to the previously announced Yoshiko Tamura vs Meiko Satomura main event for the NEO/NWA Pacific crowns, we will also have Kyoko Inoue/Emi Sakura vs Shinobu Kandori/Fuuka (what an odd team!), Natsuki*Taiyo vs DDT wrestler MIKAMI, and Mima Shimoda/Kyoko Kimura/Atsuko Emoto/Tomoka Nakagawa heeling it up against babyfaces to be announced. They are still teasing, but haven't announced if they will pull the trigger on Nanae Takahashi vs Kana at this show or save that for the May History show.
