Results, May 11-16
NEO's first show since the shocking departure of Kyoko Inoue and the impending retirements of Yoshiko Tamura, Tanny Mouse, and Yuki Miyazaki saw Aya Yuki adopt a new finisher which might signal a push for the only non-injured, non-retiring NEO worker left. Aya used the Death Valley Bomb, presumably learned from now-retired Etsuko MIta, to beat the gigantic gaijin Vanessa "The Mountain" Kraven in the semi-main event. The Sendai Girls duo of Ryo Mizunami and Kagetsu scored a nice win in the main event, beating the Three Count master-and-pupil team of Tamura and Hikaru Shida, with Miz using a guillotine drop on Shida. Tamura then announced her intention to defend both the NEO/NWA Pacific singles titles and the NEO tag titles (held with Ayumi Kurihara) against all comers until her retirement on December 31st, when she plans to still hold all three crowns.
Anniversaries are a bit happier than retirements, and we had some of those this week as well. OZ Academy featured the 15th anniversary of the original GAEA girls, along with Carlos Amano and Ran Yu-Yu from that great JWP class. Before the anniversary girls took the ring, we had Kagetsu defeat rookie Nao Komatsu, Mayumi Ozaki & Takako Inoue over Hiroyo Matsumoto & Tomoka Nakagawa,KAORU over Yumi Ohka, and Aja Kong & AKINO over Dynamite Kansai & Manami Toyota. The KAORU vs Ozaki Army feud will continue, as she wants Takako next. Aja decided to reform some old-school Jungle Jack, as she'll team with Kaoru Ito to challenge Amano & Toyota for the
tag titles in JUne. Nothing like injecting some fresh young fighters into the title mix! Ito could add OZ gold to a resume that includes tag championships in AJW, JWP, and NEO.
The main event saw OZ Academy regulars Amano, Chikayo Nagashima, and Sonoko Kato be defeated by Ran Yu-Yu, Toshie Uematsu, and Meiko Satomura, with Ran pinning Carlos. This led to an immediate challenge for the OZ Openweight title, and this will happen next week in Sapporo at the Big Japan/OZ Academy joint show.
JWP ran a pair of shows as well, with the nightcap being Leon's 10th anniversary. In the matinee, Senri Kuroki got her first singles win over Daijo/WAVE rookie Sawako Shimono, who is the only one to debut from GAMI's try at an Osaka promotion. JWP working on killing the passion, as Command Bolshoi, Kayoko Haruyama, and Kaori Yoneyama defeated Nanae Takahashi, Natsuki*Taiyo, and Kazumi Shimouma, with Bolshoi defeating Shimouma in preps for the Nanae-Bolshoi title match next month. The afternoon main event saw KAZUKI and Toshie Uematsu keep the JWP tag titles, beating Leon and Keito. Sachie Abe continued the jealous jilted lover routine.
The nightcap started with Bullfight Sora's last appearance in JWP, as the cow lost to both Yoneyama and Leon. Shimono got revenge on Kuroki with a pin in a sensei-and-student tag, also involving GAMI and Bolshoi. Here's your 2012 JWP Junior title feud, once every Sendai Girl and S-Ovation girl is too experienced for that belt. Mima Shimoda won a battle royale, won 30 kilos of black pork, and showed off her bitchin' recipe for carnitas! The main saw a series of singles matches against Leon. We had draws with Leon against Yuu Yamagata and Ayumi, then traded pinfalls against Haruyama before finishing with another draw against Yoneyama.
