Joshi Puroresu Discussion Thread

Meltzer is reporting that Riho is done with Stardom, mainly because Stardom wants to have exclusive talent signed and Riho is still under contract with AEW.  She had a pretty unremarkable run under the circumstances.

Her run this year was better than her run in 2019. They never really did much with her though due to her being AEW associated. They either felt they need to protect her due to her being an AEW talent or Riho herself decided she wasn't taking falls because of it. Either way it made little sense to keep using her long term with that as an issue. They dropped Hiroyo Matsumoto as a regular for the same reasons a few years back.

Figured that would be the case. Natsuko is the only member of Oedo Tai who hasn't taken a direct loss the past few months.

Looks like Giulia/Natsuko will be a No Rules match.  Seems like if Giulia was dropping the title, would be the most logical way of her doing it without taking a clean lose. But seeing how the Budokan show is shaping up, I don't think she's dropping it here.

Guilia is losing clean when it happens unless they suddenly think there is money in any of Oedo Tai as champs. Feels like the logical conclusion to Guilia's reign is losing the belt to Tam at Budokan. its the only way the Cosmic Angels stuff really makes sense.

Stardom are using Tam more for media appearances for tv shows and increased key exposure on posters.

But I have read some articles while back that mentioned Giulia wants to make the White belt bigger than the Red belt.

Just trying to figure out what the title matches at Budokan will be, I don't know if they go to the Tam/Giulia well yet again after the last match seems like was the blow off.  But then, who would be facing Utami?

Natsupoi joined Stardom and will challenge Azm for the high speed title.

Spoiler

Utami vs Saya for the red belt is next.

Saya challenging Utami is some ridiculous bs, but I'm less surprised with Maika having just challenged. With that it does feel like Kairi probably won't be on the show then. Only Kairi/Utami and Giulia/Utami made sense as red belt matches going into Budokan.

Doesn't seem to be very clear if that red belt match is actually taking place at the Budokan or just that's Utami's next title defense.  Stardom does have 2 back to back Korakuen shows next month.  I just can't see them doing that match at Budokan.

Tokyo Sports confirmed

Utami vs Saya at the budokan

Other news, Stardom changed their ring canvas. And new suits.

Black, white, gold are the colors of Stardom now. With pink de-emphasized.

I mostly curious now if it will main event or do they run with Yoshiko/Mayu. I know Rossy wanted a first years main event originally in Arisa/Mayu.

Momo/Iida vs. Nanae/Arisa is set for Seadlinnng's Feb. 10 show. Arisa getting involved makes me wonder if this last past Budokan.
