Pretty bad timing seeing as they've been doing their best attendance in a long time the last few months, but understandable under the circumstances.  I wonder if any other promotions will follow suit.  It is odd New Japan is going on as normal even though Bushiroad owns both.

It revolves around how Sayama has booked a joshi tag match for the 3/19 Real Japan show.

The Real Japan site still uses frames which is both awesome and headache inducing so this is a direct link to the show but this match hasn't been added yet.

WAVE announced that their upcoming shows will go on as scheduled. They are suggesting that  people that attend wear masks and make generous use of the hand sanitizer that they'll provide. They also say that anybody that appears to be sick will be asked to leave. Due to the fact that the Japanese government is up to their dawdling bureaucratic best,  I fully expect this thing to kick off here in the next few weeks and at some point we might see mandated closings of events where lots of people gather.

Just finished watching Kagetsu's retirement show and it was an emotional affair to say the least. Hazuki being involved, the last dance with Oedo Tai and a monster main event against Meiko. Part of me hopes this sticks like your typical wrestling retirement, but ultimately I just hope Kagetsu is healthy and happy and I am just bummed that I started watching her so late in her career.

Japanese women's wrestlers can be just as a tough outside the ring--or even tougher, as wrestling legend Chigusa Nagayo proved when she stopped a man from assaulting a woman and broke her own finger in the process. Freelance women's wrestler Hiroyo Matsumoto recently went to Twitter to tell of another, although slightly more comical tell wrestling strength in daily life when she found her instincts as a wrestler accidentally surfacing against a surly passerby.

"As I was passing someone on the street, they came at me bumped into me maliciously as if they were trying to knock me away, but because I have a habit of returning a blow if I get tackled, I accidentally sent him flying! I'm sorry...it was out of force of habit...I at least hope this can be an impetus for them to stop bumping into people."

In a case of funny timing, her wrestling colleague and occasional tag team partner DASH Chisako of Sendai Girls responded saying "The same thing happened to me yesterday!"

Wait, Momoe Nakanishi worked Stardom's show?
Did she and Nanae have a falling out?

She worked a comedy battle royal. I have no idea what her relationship with Nanae is. May just be a case of still being able to be friends with both Nanae and Rossy.
