Topics I've Started

Meiko Satomura & Mika Shirahime vs. Hiroyo Matsumoto & Konami (Fortune Dream 6/...

13 February 2018 - 10:04 PM

It's always fun when Meiko and/or Hiroyo show up on a Fortune Dream show and here they bring a couple of youngsters along for the ride. They work a quick pace while everyone gets to show off what they can do. The finish felt a bit rushed but considering the amount of time and placement on the card it's not that unexpected. Quite the rockin' little match here. ****


Mary Apache vs. Starlight Kid (Stardom 12/24/17)

13 February 2018 - 09:30 PM

This is for Mary's High Speed title and is Starlight Kid's first title match. This was a super fun, and like Io/HZK later on the card, didn't follow the typical veteran versus youngster formula. This was more Mary using various lucha holds to slow and ware down the fast, high flying Kid. This was easily the best that Starlight Kid has looked so far. She was a spot machine but everything she did looked smooth. Well worth the time to go out of your way to watch. ***3/4


Misaki Ohata & Ryo Mizunami vs. Yumi Ohka & Yuki Miyazaki (WAVE 1/28/17)

11 February 2018 - 07:00 AM

This is the tag title switch that never ended up on WAVE Network for whatever reason. The match itself gets off to a rough start with Ohata no-selling a bunch of Ace Crushers from Miyazaki but one it gets going it turn into a damn good match. They keep a great pace with both teams pulling off some slick double team moves and sequences. The finish is particularly nasty as Miyazaki busts out a moonsault footstomp of all things to finish of Miyazaki. Not at the level of Avid Rival's stuff later in the year with Best Friend but still pretty enjoyable. ***3/4


Kyuri & Maika Ozaki vs. Saori Anou & Tae Honma (Ice Ribbon 12/31/17)

09 February 2018 - 03:52 AM

This was one heck of a sprint between four promising young workers. Both of the Beginning Pro girls looked really good. Anou has a simple moveset but she uses it in an incredibly effective manner making everything she does count. This was the first time I've really watched Honma and I was impressed how solid she was overall, especially in mixing shoot style submissions. Maika Ozaki looked great here, as she has in her last few matches. She's turned into cool power wrestler with an explosive moveset. A super fun ten minute match. ***3/4


Ayako Hamada & ASUKA vs. Meiko Satomura & Chihiro Hashimoto (WAVE 12/29/17)

03 February 2018 - 02:20 PM

This is quite the matchup of veteran stars and junior partners. This might be my favourite Meiko performance of the year. She was really on, especially when she would slickly move from matwork to more high impact moves. Despite her age and slight weight gain, Ayako still moves around really well. Both of the younger workers came off strong, going back and forth with the vets fairly. A very fun match. ****
