This has been an ongoing feud for two years now due to Kandori getting injured before their first match and Garcia missing the weight at the weigh in last year.

For some reason I thought I mentioned this already. The person who runs the site and English twitter mentioned it over at reddit a few weeks ago and gave more details last week. Paypal as an option is coming later in the year as well. I think it was also mentioned that we should be able to watch via consoles after the update.

Is the same thing happening to BJW Core? Their site says it's down until February.

Search, tags, one of those "jump forward or backwards 10 seconds" things. PayPal, and there is going to be a small price increase.

Well fuck. I guess a $1.61 increase isn't bad but when I periodically trim my way too many streaming options for budgetary reasons,  I've never even considered dropping STARD✪M World. I don't need a forwards/backwards button. I need them to start filling in shows for the years where they have only a handful of vids.

So, reportedly people leaving the Stardom 3.3 show were calling Momo Watanabe vs Jungle Kyona the best match in Stardom history. It's up on World and I'm gonna watch it real soon.

It's a pretty good match, but I wouldn't call it the best match in Stardom's history.

According to Fumi Saito on the Pacific Rim Podcast, Hana Kimura will be signing to Stardom full time starting April, 1st.

I finally saw this having just finished up ten minutes ago. Its an easy MOTYC and probably the best Stardom match this year (I could see arguments for Kagetsu/Hazuki). but I'm not sure I would go as far as best match in Stardom's history even though the last half or so was fantastic.

It was definitely really fucking good, at any rate.

The fact that Watanabe don't turn 19 for another week and a half is amazing.

It can't be overstated how insane the amount of growth she has had is. She basically went from being decent with just a bit of potential to coming back better than ever after being out injured for 6-8 months.

I know. It was "why are they pushing her so hard, she's not that.... Oh, nevermind"

Honestly, its even more impressive how Momo managed to jump ahead of Kyona and Hazuki. Both had more natural talent with Kyona showing more skill than either of them by the end of her first year. Its nice how much Momo's push seems to have motivated both to improve even more.

Agreed. And it's amazing how easily they rolled through Toni and Io jumping ship.

As said above, Stardom apparently. I'd assume companies in the US will offer dates as well.

Interesting. Stardom, America? 

Nothing has been said officially, but Fumi Saito mentioned on a podcast earlier in the month that she would leave to join Stardom. Rossy Ogawa also mentioned a big name would join in a Japanese interview this week. If it happens, its good idea for her. WRESTLE-1 doesn't really have a women's division, and I suspect played the role of managers for her more than anything else. Supposedly they were the ones who kept her out of last years deathmatch in Stardom. Beyond that she has kind of hit a wall growth wise for the last 18 or so months. A change in systems probably wouldn't hurt.
