here's lot of stories
>The original JWP was created to use stars from AJW that had been forced to retire because of the 26 year old rule that was enforced. In particular, the original aces were to be Jackie Sato and Nancy Kumi. They also recruited Shinobu Kandori from judo (she had won a bronze medal at the world championships but then got kicked off the national team for an "attitude" problem) and Rumi Kazama from kick-boxing, and also put together a good rookie class with people like Kansai (called Miss A then), Ozaki, Harley, Eagle, Cutie Suzuki, the late Plum Mariko, etc. Many of those original rookies had been rejected by AJW, who were getting hundreds of applications per year as this was the height of popularity for joshi among girls. There was feuding between the "entertainers" and the "shooters", which culminated in the Kandori-Jackie incident. Kandori worked as a free-lancer after that and Jackie left wrestling. Devil Masami then came in and ended up being a much more important part of JWP than Jackie or Nancy Kumi ever were. Later, Itsuki Yamazaki from the Jumping Bomb Angels had a short stint in JWP.
>Then sometime in the early 1990s (91 or 92), Rumi Kazama got fired. This caused the split as Rumi responded by forming LLPW and her friends (Kandori, Harley, Eagle, others) went with her, while others (Devil, Kansai, Ozaki, Cutie, Plum, others) stayed behind in a reorganized version called the JWP Project. It was around this time that Noriyo Tateno, the other JBA, decided to come out of her short retirement and joined LLPW.
>The two organizations disliked each other strongly for a number of years and didn't work together. Notice during the DreamSlam interpromotional period in 92-93 that JWP and LLPW didn't feud with each other. Rather, part of AJW (particularly Toyota and Yamada) feuded with JWP while others (particularly Hokuto) feuded with LLPW.
>According to Lorifice in his article about the life and death of Plum Mariko, Plum was against the split, as she was friendly with both sides and was the only JWP wrestler to work LLPW's first show. She wanted a reunion show in 1996, the 10th anniversary of the original JWP, but it didn't happen. Sadly, it seems Plum's death was what eased the tension between the groups. I guess it took a tragedy for them to realize that life was too short to waste with petty arguments.
but if you want some notably feud honestly i had no ides.
