Come off some pretty serious injuries, I don't know if full time in the US would be very likely.  I can see her freelance in Japan on a lesser schedule than what Stardom is currently doing.  It really depends on if her leaving was her choice or the company not picking up her contract.

Stars is now down to 4 women.

They removed Sumire off the Oedo Tai section and the roster page. Hmmm.

She is still recuperating from her injury, right? I hope she returns to another group and doesn't retire. She's not a great worker by any stretch in the traditional sense but she's funny and has good presence.

I adore Jungle Kyona, she was my favorite of the Stardom roster, so I hope that she's doing okay. The last 18 months or so has been a really difficult stretch for her, with her heath and I imagine the stress of Hana Kimura's passing taking its toll on her. If she's not able to maintain Stardom's schedule, I can't say I blame her. Maybe freelance would be a better option.

As much as I like watching her, I hope she's healthy and happy above all else.

STARS is Mayu, Hanan, & Koguma. With Kyona gone it should be down to those 3. Who is the fourth?

Edit: Never mind. Just remembered Iida. Main do they need more active members.

Not surprised about Sumire. People have been noting that her interest in wrestling has been down during her recovery, and she mentioned not being sure if she would return. I figured Stardom was out at the very least due to its schedule.

I hate to see Kyona leave Stardom as she was one of my favorites and I was really looking forward to her return. I hope she is able to continue her career and be healthy and happy. 

The Sumrie news isn't too surprising as it just seemed like more than the injury was keeping her away.

Stardom very much changed from Indy to Women's version of sorta NJPW.  Still number 1 for Women in Japan though. 

If they create the sub-brand, one of the women on the roster will have to be that brands Ace. Makes me think Tall Saya for that unnamed brand tbh, Giulia for Stardom.

Kidani wanted more brands, well male brands but seems that idea is for the women now.

Honestly, not digging the idea of sub brands. Feels like something that Kidani wants mostly so Bushiroad can still do an IWGP Women's belt they talked about years ago. I suppose it could work if Stardom gets a good 50 or so people on the roster, but otherwise it just doesn't feel like a good idea.

Saw on reddit that Kyona did a radio show appearance in Nagoya. Apparently she is working fulltime at an advertising agency. Stardom helped her get the job. And she wants run a self-produced show in Nagoya.

I am so far behind on my Stardom watching. Only on Night 11 of the 5☆GP, the number of dates on this tour and my stupid desire to watch it all has really helped me fall behind on pretty much everything I watch except SEAdLINNNG. 

But so far I'd say the standout matches are Iroha vs Nakano, Iwatani vs Watanabe, Maika vs Syuri & Syuri vs Hayashishita.

You're still ahead of me. I slowed down on my GP viewing a tremendous amount due to also rewatching Stargate around the same time and catching up last season's anime. Should catch up sometime this week.

Kyona leaving Stardom before her return is a shock, but to hear that she is possibly taking on the role of producing her own shows is exciting. Hasn't been much of that in recent yrs. Still hope a venture into the US is open. She could definitely work lighter and extend her career a few more yrs.

Soon Syuri vs Konami, UWF rules.

Unfortunate news, Konami is out sick so this match has been postponed. Was looking forward to it because the recent resurgence of UWF rules matches has been something I've greatly enjoyed.

Signed up for that Wrestle Universe deal. Anything from Tokyo Joshi Pro that is essential watching. 

Plan on subscribing to Stardom after G1 and catching up on the major matches.
