Quick note to let everyone know what has been happening. I've had a lot of problems accessing the web server lately, and also managed to run out of web space recently which along with me not having had as much spare time as hoped has hindered recent updates to these pages.
My intention is to try to put up a news/results article each week, as well as keeping the other pages going. It is unlikely I will return to running daily results updates in the forseeable future. Anyone wanting to read results 'as they happen' should visit Crazy Max where they are posted in the Joshi Puroresu folder.
All Japan Women ran their normal new year shows on January 3 and 4 at Korakuen Hall with a few titles changing hands.
First on January 3 the 2003 Tag League the Best winners Nanae Takahashi and Ayako Hamada captured the WWWA tag team titles from Kyoko and Takako Inoue in three falls, first Kyoko used a lariat to pin Takahashi in 15:54, Hamada then came back to beat Takako with an AP Lock in 3:55, and Takahashi won the match by pinning Kyoko with a Shining Wizard in 16:21. As far as I can remember, this is the first time Takahashi has pinned Kyoko, for all that might be worth these days.
On January 4 Amazing Kong surprisingly won the WWWA title from Ayako Hamada, getting the pin after 23:43. Also at that show Takahashi used the Nana Rack to beat Kumiko Maekawa in 22:50, and Kaoru Ito returned teaming with Tomoko Watanabe to beat Kayo Noumi and Momoe Nakanishi in 21:48 when Watanabe pinned Noumi. Ito and Momoe are likely not back permanently and are still working for AtoZ.
