  1. I went to the WAVE show yesterday and my big takeaway was that there has never been a wrestler more injured entering the ring than Tommy Ran. She's the Sakuraba of referees.
  2. She needs elbow ligament surgery. She should be able to get back on the pitching mound by the start of the season.
  3. Well, that didn't last long. Mio is out another 3 months or so.
  4. She already took one year off before already, I'm not going to rule out another return. This is wrestling anyway. Maybe she's on the Yoko Bito plan. Man, they're way behind Netflix. I think I've seen 4 Hana episodes so far. She started heeling it up in the most recent episode.
  5. They playing some bullshit. Everybody had their faces blurred. You can see me but I'm in a black t-shirt in the shadows with a blurred face. They showed Hana beating up Azumi among her new roommates and the finishing run where Azumi beat Hana.
  6. Two things that slipped by me this week. Ryo MIzunami is leaving WAVE and going freelance. Also, Mio Momono had her return match yesterday after a year out because of injury. I wish I had known that since I could have gone.
  7. Ok, so I watched Hana's first Terrace House episode. I've never watched this show but it is real just as much as the Real World was real. They plopped Hana into the house right on her birthday and she comes in and stirs up some shit, about as much as a Japanese person will do. They then decide to all go watch her next show, which is interesting because I was at that show and I don't remember seeing anything that resembled a film crew following people around. I guess I'll find out if I'm in the damn show next week. EDIT: Forgot to mention that if I was the Japanese pro-wrestling version of an English football journalist during transfer season, I would say that Hana issued a "Come get me plea" to WWE.
  8. I've never watched Terrace House but do they have 40 something upper management types that work out 5 days a week?
  9. I assume Bushiroad bought out Stardom before WWE did.
  10. I guess that's who came out beforehand to apologize for getting hurt and changing the card around.
  11. Went to the Stardom show at Shin-Kiba today. They rushed thru the show because of the tourney matches and the typhoon incoming. Some interesting tourney results: Azumi beat HANA (who then beat the hell outta Daichi), Hazuki beat Iwatani and Jungle Kyona beat Kagetsu. The Kagetsu/Jungle match was possibly newsworthy. Jungle hit Kagetsu with a Rainmaker-->Tombstone-->Powerbomb combo that should have been the finish. (Not the least reason being it looked like a deadly combo) But she ended up hitting Kagetsu with a Muscle Buster type move, had the Muscle Buster set-up, but dropped straight down on her ass for like a neckbreaker type move. I'm sure there's a name for it but I'm not sure what it is. Anyway, it looked like Kagetsu slipped out of Jungle's grip and fell right on her head. She got tended to, rolled out of the ring and walked to the back but looked to be in pain. Have to watch the replay to see if it was as bad as it seemed. It's been a while since I've seen any Stardom but it's good to know they still have so many titles that half the wrestlers don't even bother to bring them to the ring. BTW, Is Bea Priestley's name really pronounced press-lee? If not, she better tell Rossy.
  12. "Hey Lioness Asuka, what do you want to do for your birthday?"
  13. Act Yasukawa was on hand to make the save for Kris Wolf at her retirement show tonight.
  14. Here's the bracket for the Stardom Cinderella tourney next week.
  15. Don't want to leave out Momoe's daughter, either.
  16. Momoe Nakanishi's son looking to become the next, er..., Momoe Nakanishi.
  17. Kris Wolf announced her retirement due to complications from concussions. She'll have another US tour and then a retirement show.
  18. Congrats to Kris Wolf who got married. (in sneakers)
  19. Wave had a press conference to announce their roster for the restart in April.
  20. This looks 100% legit. (What up, Takako?)
  21. Because I love fuckin around with Excel, I decided to download all the Stardom attendance figures and check it out. Unfortunately, my automated system didn't work properly and I'm missing about 60 shows worth of data. One thing I did notice is that Stardom has increased the number of shows they run every year. Also, outside of a show they ran at Sumo Hall, their top attended event was this year at Korakuen Hall for Io Shirai's last appearance. (Kairi Hojo's last appearance was at a Shin-Kiba show) NOTE: There is no telling if Wrestledata's numbers are correct. Or even whatever is reported by Stardom, for that matter.
  22. WAVE had their last show today, until their re-opening next April. Ohata had her retirement match against MIzunami (who beat Asuka for the belt 2 weeks ago) and ended up winning the Regina di Wave title in the match. The title was then vacated. Hirota/Miyazaki won the tag titles from Ohka/Momono. For some reason, Nanae came in and beat Asuka. Yoshiko drew with Yamashita. Nozaki beat Iroha.
  23. You need a population of school girls to draw from to get a school girl audience. Seriously, it is similar to female idol groups. They have a decent section of young female fans (admittedly less so for joshi puroresu) but between the cost of live events and the reticence of attending shows with that large a section of adult males, you don't see them. If the companies wanted to target them and have them come out they could, but they are probably worried about losing adult male dollars.
