June 29 Update

    Kaoru Ito

  • Nanae Takahashi gained her first points in the 1999 Grand Prix when she defeated Tomoko Watanabe on June 26. In another Grand Prix match, Kaoru Ito took the lead with six points, going to a thirty minute draw against Kumiko Maekawa.

    Current standing in the Grand Prix are 1. Ito (6 points, 4 matches remaining), 2. Yumiko Hotta (5 points, 5 matches remaining), 3. Miho Wakizawa (4 points, 4 matches remaining), 4. Momoe Nakanishi (3 points, 5 matches remaining) and Tomoko Watanabe (3 points, 5 matches remaining), 6. Manami Toyota (2 points, 5 matches remaining), Takako Inoue (2 points, 6 matches remaining), and Nanae Takahashi (2 points, 6 matches remaining), 9. Kumiko Maekawa (1 point, 5 matches remaining).

    The Grand Prix Current Standings page has been updated with the results from June 26.

  • At a JWP show in Shizuoka City today, Carlos Amano defeated Dynamite Kansai for the first time, getting the submission with a juji-gatame after 14:55. This win takes Amano up to two points in Group A of JWP's tournament. With this loss, and her loss against Azumi Hyuga on June 13 at Korakuen Hall, Kansai still has no points.

    In a group B match, Devil Masami squashed Kana Misaki after only 1:02. Aside from her loss to Ran YuYu on June 14, JWP's booking of Devil has been really bad in this tournament so far. Devil is now 37 years old, and not half the worker she was only a couple of years ago. At this stage of Devil's career they really should be using her to put over the younger wrestlers, such as Kana.

  • GAEA had a big show in Akurosu Fukuoka on June 27. Key results saw Lioness Asuka defeat KAORU in the opener, Kaori Nakayama won her first match since joining GAEA, pinning Sakura Hirota with La Majistral. The main event saw Chigusa Nagayo, Meiko Satomura & Sonoko Kato beat Mayumi Ozaki, Mima Shimoda & Chikayo Nagashima when Nagayo got the pinfall over Shimoda in only 10:57.

  • Candy Okutsu's CAZAI band will be performing two live dates to promote their album on July 21 and August 22. They will be releasing a music video on August 23. Their CD is released in Japan on June 30 at the price of 1500 Yen.

  • At the LLPW show on June 28, Mizuki Endo returned to the promotion for the first time in approximately one year. Endo had left LLPW last year to work in the United States. She defeated Sayuri Okino in her return match.

  • The ARSION show at Tokyo Korakuen Hall on June 30 will include Mariko Yoshida vs. Ai Fujita; Michiko Ohmukai vs. Mari Apache and Hiromi Yagi & Rie Tamada vs. Ayako Hamada & Mika Akino for the Twin Star of ARSION tag team titles.

  • ARSION were in Matsuzaka, Mie today. In the main event Michiko Ohmukai scored only her second ever pinfall over Mariko Yoshida in a tag team match. Ohmukai and Rie Tamada teamed up to defeat Yoshida and Aja Kong, with Ohmukai getting the pin over Yoshida in 20:10 with a B Series Bomb.

  • At JWP's event in Hiroshima today, Devil Masami defeated Maya Hashimoto in a Tournament Group B match, scoring the pin with a lariat after only seventeen seconds. The only other notable result was in the main event, Kyoko Inoue and Misae Genki of Neo Ladies defeated Azumi Hyuga and Carlos Amano when Kyoko TKO'ed Hyuga, forcing the referee to stop the match. Check out results for full details of today's shows.


    June 23 Update

  • ARSION will be running a tournament entitled "Sky 99" on June 30 at Tokyo, Korakuen Hall. Wrestlers taking part will include Tiger Dream (Candy Okutsu), Ayako Hamada, Mika Akino, Ai Fujita, Mari Apache, Gami Metal (Mikiko Futagami), Ring Star, Chaparrita ASARI of Neo Ladies, La Galactica 2000 and Princess Suhei. A qualiying match will take place between Suhei and Galactica, then round one matches will be Tiger Dream vs. Hamada; Apache vs. Star; Akino vs. Metal and Fujita vs. ASARI. The winner of Tiger vs. Hamada meets the winner of Apache vs. Star, and the winner of Akino vs. Metal meets the winner of Fujita vs. ASARI. The winners of those two matches wrestle one another in the final.

    Yoshiko Tamura

  • Further matches have been added to the July 11 AJW Explosion show, these include a six woman tag team match pitting Manami Toyota, Kaoru Ito and Nanae Takahashi against Mima Shimoda, Etsuko Mita and Lioness Asuka; Keiko Aono gets a shot at whoever wins the All Pacific title match between Kumiko Maekawa and Misae Genki or Yoshiko Tamura on July 10; Chaparrita ASARI defends the Super LightWeight title against Momoe Nakanishi; and Miho Wakizawa takes on Kayo Noumi.

  • Neo Ladies have a show entitled "Queens Road" at Club Citta, Kawasaki on July 4. Main event will be Kyoko Inoue vs. ZAP I (AJW). Other matches will be Yoshiko Tamura vs. Misae Genki in a Neo Cup '99 match, with the winner also getting a shot at Kumiko Maekawa's All Pacific title on July 10; and in what is sure to be a nightmare of a match, Yuka Nakamura & Kana Misaki (JWP) vs. Shark Tsuchiya & Crusher Maedomari.

  • ARSION's are holding their ZION '99 tournament in Tokyo on August 22.

  • Mariko Yoshida defends the Queen of ARSION against Aja Kong on August 6 at the Tokyo Ohta Ward Gymnasium. Also, in a bizzare match to determine the best singer in the promotion, Candy Okutsu wrestles Hiromi Yagi. Presumably this match is a marketing ploy to sell more copies of Okutsu's CD that is released in July.


    June 20 Update

  • Jd' will be promoting sixteen shows through July. Key dates include July 18 in Tokyo, July 21 at Club Citta in Kawasaki, July 23 in Yamazaki and July 31 in Kanesawa.

    Lioness Asuka

  • Chigusa Nagayo returned to GAEA at Korakuen Hall today after being absent for a month following her loser-must-retire match against Aja Kong on May 16. In the main event of the show which drew an alleged sellout of 2000, Nagayo squashed SSU member Etsuko Mita with a Death Valley Bomb in twelve seconds.

    As Nagayo is wrestling the rest of the shows on the current tour, it looks like she is back permanently. A re-match between Nagayo and Lioness Asuka is scheduled for September 15 at the Yokohama Cultural Gym. The stipulation for the match is likely to be that if Nagayo wins, she regains control of the company.

  • AJW held two Grand Prix matches today at the Zenjo Garage in Tokyo. The result that came as a major surprise was Miho Wakizawa's (3 points) pinfall win over Manami Toyota (2 points) after 19:47. The other match saw Momoe Nakanishi (3 points) work to a thirty minute draw with Yumiko Hotta (5 points). For current standings, take a look at the Grand Prix page. In other notes from the show, Little Frankie's 23rd anniversary in wrestling was acknowledged with him wrestling two straight matches against Tomezo Tsunokake. Also, Miyuki Fujii won an eight woman battle royal, last eliminating Kumiko Maekawa.


    June 19 Update


    Mariko Yoshida
    Mariko Yoshida retained her Queen of ARSION title, going to a thirty minute draw with Michiko Ohmukai on June 18 in Onomichi, Hiroshima. It made sense for this match to go to a time limit draw, that way the momentum Ohmukai gained by winning the ARS tournament wasn't killed by having her almost immediately job to Yoshida. This is the first time that a Queen of ARSION match has gone to a time limit draw, previous title defences were:

    • January 17, 1999: Mariko Yoshida beat Mika Akino [14:39]
    • February 18, 1999: Mariko Yoshida beat Hiromi Yagi [20:36]
    • April 14, 1999: Mariko Yoshida beat Mikiko Futagami [19:13]

    For what it's worth, Ohmukai and Yoshida have previously had five singles matches in ARSION, and Ohmukai hasn't won any of them:

    • June 2, 1998: Yoshida pinned Ohmukai in 9:29
    • August 31, 1998: Yoshida pinned Ohmukai
    • September 19, 1998: Yoshida pinned Ohmukai
    • January 16, 1999: Yoshida pinned Ohmukai in 14:18
    • March 16, 1999: Yoshida pinned Ohmukai in 14:28

    As far as I know, the only time Ohmukai has pinned Yoshida was during the Twin Star of ARSION tournament on October 26, 1998 in Osaka when Ohmukai & Fukawa defeated Yoshida & Mika Akino, Ohmukai got the pin with a Rolling Savate after 16:27.

  • Jd' were at Osaka NGK Hall today, the only result I have is that Shark Tsuchiya teamed with Sumie Sakai to defeat Morimatsu and The Bloody, with Shark pinning Morimatsu after 17:08.

    JWP held a show in Minokamo, Gifu today. The only news is that in a tournament Block A match, Kana Misaki (3 points) defeated Acute Sae (0 points) in 9:09; also in a tag team match Carlos Amano and Dynamite Kansai went over Devil Masami and Ran YuYu when Kansai used the Splash Moutain on Ran after 14:53. ARSION also ran an event today, check out Results for details.

  • Lineup for JWP's next JWP Hall show which takes place on June 30 is Azumi Hyuga & Kayoko Haruyama vs. Nanae Takahashi & Miho Wakizawa; Ran YuYu vs. Kana Misaki; Commando Bolshoi & Acute Sae vs. Miho Watabe & Yasha Kurenai; Tsubasa Kuragaki vs. Misae Genki; and Carlos Amano & Maya Hashimoto vs. Kayo Noumi & Momoe Nakanishi.

  • Two women's matches took place on the undercard of the June 17 Big Japan show at Tokyo Korakuen Hall. Firstly, Kyoko Ichiko defeated Andromeda in 2:35; and Shark Tsuchiya & Crusher Maedomari beat Chihiro Nakano & Marcella in 9:16 when Shark pinned Nakano with a Lariat. ARSION and Jd' also held shows today, take a look at Results for more details on those.

  • Two matches have been added to the July 11 All Japan Womens show. Miho Wakizawa and Kayo Noumi will defend the All Japan Tag Team titles against Tsubasa Kuragaki and Kana Misaki; and Kumiko Maekawa defends the All Pacific title against either Yoshiko Tamura or Misae Genki, depending on who wins their singles match on July 4.

    June 7 Update

  • Chigusa Returns!

    The next GAEA show is on June 20 at Tokyo, Korakuen Hall. In the main event, Mima Shimoda and Lioness Asuka of SSU take on Meiko Satomura and Sonoko Kato in what should be a great match. Elsewhere on the card they have RIE and Toshie Uematsu vs. Sugar Sato and Etsuko Mita; Chikayo Nagashima and Kaori Nakayama vs. Sonoko Kato and Sakura Hirota; and Mayumi Ozaki and Aja Kong vs. KAORU and Toshiyo Yamada.

    A special match has been added with Chigusa Nagayo taking on an SSU member. Quite why Chigusa is wrestling I'll never know, because she was forced out of the company when she lost to Aja Kong on May 16, and is now "bankrupt and living homeless on the streets".

  • At yesterday's Osaka Pro (Super Delfin's new group) show at Osaka NGK, Yuki Lee defeated Chikako Shiratori at the 10:38 mark. Lee and Shiratori aren't expected back in JWP any time soon, but will continue to work with each other at Osaka Pro events.

  • AJW began the 1999 Grand Prix at Korakuen Hall yesterday, with the only two matches that anyone cares about, those being Manami Toyota vs. Yumiko Hotta, which Hotta won by pinfall with the Pyramid Driver after 22:12. And ZAP I vs. ZAP T, where ZAP I took the victory after a Double Footstomp in 19:01. The third match had a very surprising result as Momoe Nakanishi defeated Takako Inoue with a Dragon Suplex after only 13:33.

  • Manami Toyota is expected to wrestle Shinobu Kandori and Kyoko Inoue in singles matches later this year. Toyota lost a WWWA title match against Kandori last August, and jobbed almost all of her interpromotional matches in 1998, so maybe she'll get the win this time around.


    June 6 Update

  • LLPW have announced the lineups for Yasha Kurenai's retirement tour. On June 11 in Chiba, Kurenai and Shinobu Kandori take on Eagle Sawai and Carol Midori. June 20 has Kurenai and Rumi Kazama vs. Eagle Sawai and Carol Midori; and Noriyo Tateno and Keiko Aono vs. Kyoko Inoue and Misae Genki. June 28 in Tokyo will be Kurenai vs. Bolshoi Kid. July 10 has Kandori and Kazama vs. Kurenai and Harley Saito. Yasha's retirement takes place at Korakuen Hall on July 20. No opponent has been announced yet.

  • ARSION held a show in Niigata City today, the main event saw Mariko Yoshida, Mikiko Futagami and Rie Tamada defeat Aja Kong, Ayako Hamada and Mika Akino after 21:36, when Yoshida pinned Akino. Check out the Results page for full details.


    June 5 Update

  • As their last title match went to a thirty minute time limit draw, Mika Akino and Ayako Hamada have been awarded another shot at the Twin Star of ARSION tag team titles held by Hiromi Yagi and Rie Tamada. The match happens on June 30.

  • The June 20 All Japan Women's event at the Zenjo Garage in Tokyo will have Yumiko Hotta vs. Momoe Nakanishi and Manami Toyota vs. Miho Wakizawa in Grand Prix matches, as well as Little Frankie vs. Tomezo Tsunokake; a battle royal featuring Takako Inoue, ZAP I, ZAP T, Kumiko Maekawa, Nanae Takahashi, Miyuki Fuji, Kayo Noumi and the returning Tomoka Isozaki. Also they are holding a birthday party for Kayo Noumi.

  • Megumi Yabushita Megumi Yabushita retained the Jd' Junior title against Fang Suzuki on June 3, going to a thirty minute draw. I was going to comment that with all her recent defences, Yabushita was giving some much needed credibility to the title, but really, Obacchi Iizuka and Fang Suzuki hadn't beaten anyone noteable to get title shots, and are hardly decent wrestlers.

  • JWP were in Gifu today, the only result I has is that in the main event Azumi Hyuga and Dynamite Kansai defeated Devil Masami and Carlos Amano when Kansai used the Super Splash Mountain on Amano after 16:07.


    June 2 Update
