So likely Rossy's been negotiating with her behind IR's back and considering she was still under contract (otherwise she wouldn't have needed to resign out of the blue) that's really shitty on both his and Giulia's part. At least Natsumi Maki waited until her contract was up to announce she was signing with TJPW.

It's one thing if it was a Mike Awesome situation where he refused to sign a new contract due to unpaid wages or a Kenny King situation where his contract expired and had a verbal agreements (which in wrestling doesn't really mean much). But this shit is like straight up contract tampering on Rossy's part and Giulia burned her bridge by leaving Ice Ribbon while still under contract. I'm really interested to see why and how this even happened.

>it could have been they were negotiating behind IR's back and when they came to terms she resigned and joined Stardom.

If it were a situation where her contract was coming due, she should have asked Ice Ribbon to negotiate with other promotions so Ice Ribbon would have an opportunity to try to re-sign her to a better deal or let her go to Stardom if they couldn't match their offer. The fact that she jumped to another company behind their back when she's in the middle of her contract is fucking dumb as hell.

So far from what I've seen the situation looks like this.

>Giulia goes to Ice Ribbon's management, tells them she wants to resign
>They want to wait until after Saya's retirement show to talk about it
>Show gets moved back because of the typhoon
>Giulia quits via text, posts on twitter that she's quit
>Tsukka (and presumably the rest of IR's staff/wrestlers) is surprised and has no idea what's going on
>Giulia immediately shows up at Stardom's Korakuen show and joins Queen's Quest
>Neoplus claims Giulia was still under contract
>Rossy claims that he wasn't aware of any contract

So basically either Neoplus is lying to save face and make Stardom look bad, Rossy's lying about thinking she wasn't under contract or Giulia lied to Stardom about her contract status. Honestly Rossy being shady is the only one that really makes sense.

Neoplus publicly stating all of that will make them look really bad if it's not true and I can't imagine they'd be that dumb. Giulia might risk her career if she just lied to both sides and I can't imagine she'd be that dumb either. Meanwhile there's a recentish history of murky signings with Stardom (Kagetsu, Natsu and Miyagi most notably).

I don't doubt that other promotions negotiate with wrestlers under contract to another promotions. But it's a pretty consistent pattern with Stardom so I wouldn't really give Rossy the benefit fo the doubt.

I get the impression that Giulia desperately wanted to be in the "big league" with all the Stateside attention Stardom wrestlers have been getting recently. While I'm sure Rossy is complicit, if he gets pressed about it then he can just play dumb, since this all appears to have been of Giulia's volition

Giulia's Stardom theme - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hzTeLePbB08

They should have seen it coming from the beginning. Before she got her ringname she was Gloria. Gloria = OG LIAR.

Hopefully she continues to improve and we get some good matches. That's all anyone cares about really.

I'm doomed to update this list for all time. Tequila Saya retirement run -

09/28: Tequila Saya & Giulia vs Ram Kaichou & Maika Ozaki
09/29: Yoshiko & Tequila Saya vs Tsukushi & Suzu Suzuki (Last Yankii Tag)
09/29: Risa Sera & Akane Fujita vs Rina Yamashita & Tequila Saya (Hardcore Match)
10/03: Maya Yukihi & Giulia vs Tequila Saya & Yappy (Yappy's Return)
10/05: Tsukasa Fujimoto vs Tequila Saya
10/05: Tequila Saya vs Ice Ribbon Roster (1 Minute Match x 13)
10/09: Tequila Saya & Tuskushi vs Suzu Suzuki & Yappy (Balloon Match)
10/09: Tsukasa Fujimoto & Hamuko Hoshi vs Tequila Saya & Giulia (Tequila Drinking Match)
??/??: Tequila Saya & Giulia vs Uno Matsuya & Satsuki Totoro (Last Match)

Bushiroad was trying to make a move before WWE since they want to invade Japan and Japan is very nationalistic.

Stardom is arguably the best women's wrestling promotion in Japan, and to some the world for that matter. So they beat WWE to the punch.

Also, Stardom isn't competition to New Japan. They're two totally different markets since Japanese wrestling tends to segregate male and female promotions. They'll probably run it separately. But there could be shows where they do cross over with eachother.

They've already said they won't mix the two together at least within Japan.
Over half of New Japan's demographic is women, and the women there are much different in what they want. They want hunky dudes like ACE, Kota, Omega and Yano. Adding women to the picture could have a serious negative impact to their attendance.
The women everywhere else can scream YAASSS QUEEN all they want; it isn't what the New Japan women fans want.

She was icing her shoulder after but did not appear to be significantly injured. Iwatani was doing a top rope hurricanrana and Priestley slipped on the top rope and thus didn't go over, and Iwatani looked like she landed on her head.

No, not Yuu. She's called [something] Kaneko.

As for Yuu's size, you can't be in Team 200 Kilo and not live the gimmick. Plus she isn't working less than 4 times a month any more and can afford to eat. Travelling more, working more, eating more. She also probably doesn't feel beholden to stay smaller when she is working for promotions where the wrestling/image balance skews more towards wrestling.

The tradition is as a trainee, every once in a while you will be given the opportunity to have your abilities evaluated by the head trainers and senpai of the promotion in which you are affiliated. The test usually involves a doing a certain number of squats and push-ups followed by basic wrestling drills like running the ropes and rolls, and finally you will be put in a demo match with a peer or senpai while the teachers watch. If everyone watching you evaluates as competent enough, you are passed and you become a rookie, and your debut is scheduled.

You can search youtube for japanese pro wrestling pro test and see a number of them. I know the up up girls from tjpw, some stardom girls and some marvelous girls at least have portions of their pro tests posted on there.

Card for Sareee's Special Night so far.

>Kyoko Inoue vs Kaoru Ito vs Chihiro Hashimoto
>Jaguar Yokota & Ayako Sato vs Haruka Umesaki & X
>Zap I & Zap T vs Mio Momono & Madeline
>Aja Kong vs Nanami
>Jenny Rose vs Hibiki

Still to be announced; Sareee, Takumi Iroha and Natsumi Maki.

Sareee vs Iroha looks like the obvious choice for what the main event is going to be. Probably for the WWWD belt, I suppose there's a miniscule chance it might even be a double title match if Iroha keeps the Regina belt until then. Natsumi is still injured and won't be having a match which is unfortunate. Sareee vs Natsumi might have been the first choice for the main event or even Sareee & Natsumi vs whoever.

Hana Iwaki and Mei Suzuki are Mikoto Shindo and Mei Hoshizuki respectively and they passed. Maria Takeda is Maria (obviously), failed this round but passed another. Amisa Sugimoto had a few but I don't think she ever passed them.

Amisa Sugimoto passed at her third and final chance back in August. Her debut is planned for Chigusa's final show at Korakuen Hall in December. If she does debut then, it will be almost exactly 2 years from when she was announced as a trainee alongside Mikoto Shindo.

I wonder if Himeka will be Reika's comeback match. Makes the most sense since it was her that injured Reika and they seemed to be building towards Reika defending the AWG belt against Himeka when the injury happened.

I think she is quite good relative to her experience. She's just coming up on her 2nd anniversary next month. She is in the top group of AWG wrestlers along with Saori, Miyuki, Tae and Kakeru. She's younger than all of them and working more shows than any of them except Miyuki. She moves well for her size, she doesn't look slow or sluggish. Her expressiveness in the ring is great. That's something that most of the Actwres Girlz, past and present, do really well. She also doesn't look clumsy or awkward which you might expect when everybody she is facing is smaller than her. Unless we get a sticc vs thicc Poccari Joshi special tag match with her and Yuna against Kamiyu and Saki Akai, I don't think there is anybody she can face who is taller than her at 5'7" (except ASUKA). She isn't having must see matches every show or anything at this point but she is definitely worth checking out. Her SEAdLINNNG tag run with Miyuki was fun and mostly about them proving themselves to the "real wrestlers" in the company. So, yes, I think she is quite good and like you mentioned she is cute. Sorry Ito, but by volume, Jumbo is the cutest in the world.

Takagi wants to expand the international audience for DDT and its brands. Also 500 or 600 would be pretty good considering that outside of the three Korakuen shows TJPW usually runs venues that aren't going to do more than 200 or 300. That and they've likely got Wrestlecon helping them with flights/hotels and I'm sure at least some of the talent will wind up working other shows that weekend meaning probably more pay for them.

I'm confused. Why is she a completely different character in DDT? I get she's a model and Saki Akai is how she debuted, but Sakisama is dimes. Is there a kayfabe reason, like split personalities or something, or is it just how she's booked in DDT?

>The pro wrestling press has dug into Saki’s past to learn more about her. They found out she was married at 32 years old to a Japanese soldier who died on the final day of World War II. She fled to the mountains in Kyoto and became secluded from society after her husband’s death. Her time spent there seemed to have prevented her from ageing. She might be a demon but no one can confidently confirm it.

Saki can be kind of eh in the ring in that she's not bad but doesn't do a whole lot that's interesting either. But she's probably one of the best character workers around and really excels at it. Saki Akai the peppy model-turned-wrestler is not the same as Sakisama the arrogant and aloof aristocract is not the same as SAKI the zombie/ghost woman and it's entirely because she plays those characters really well.

She does do other stuff too by they way. suplexes, bodyslams, a top rope crossbody. that dope finisher of hers. She's not the absolute top tier but she's still quite good. Also, Saki has clearly worked a lot with Sakaguchi cause her kicking style pretty much mirrors his.

Saki-sama and SAKI are also quite good. I'd love to see the 3 of them face off someday but they never seem to interact.

Saki Akai basically worked a proto-NBG gimmick as Biishiki-gun with KANNA and anime voice actress turned temporary pro wrestler Ai Shimizu. The group disbanded because Saki went back to Paris. Right after however a girl in a schoolgirl outfit, iron mask and with a yo-yo showed up. This was Saki Akamiya who insisted she was here to purge TJPW of weakness and took as her apprentice Hyper Misao.

In reality she was an anti-hero fighting to remove the evil that was Poison Sawada JULIE (who'd brainwashed Akane Miura and KANNA into his servants) from TJPW. She succeeded and went back to enjoy her high school life, tasking Hyper Misao with protecting TJPW. Not long after Sakisama showed up in TJPW (despite insistance from others that she was Saki Akai) with her maid Martha as SIN Biishiki-gun. Eventually her doctor, Yukio Saint Laurent, also arrived and the group was renamed NEO Biishiki-gun.

Not one of their best in ring performers but she is solid. She may not be the most athletic or wrestle the flashiest style but she performs with confidence and what she does do is done well. She does have good intensity. Her look changes all the time but she has had plenty of good ones.

It's a bad thing when it's the only thing. All she does is kick and boot to the face. Her dope finisher is only used when she is in Saki Akai mode, not Sakisama. And she only uses it on men. As Saki Akai she jobs a ton. Just saw her get thoroughly dominated by a much smaller girl. Then she goes into Sakisama mode and never loses. It's kinda weird.

I do wish she would use that finisher across the board and not just on men because it is awesome.

Someone on Twitter sent me this via DM after they saw that Kairi/Asuka tweet from earlier today. I answered back that I wish /wooo/ had drawfriends to do this, then thought about it and asked if I could post it anyway to see if someone—anyone—would respond. They gave me permission, so now it's here. If you wanna give it a shot, cool. If not, also cool.

As for why I posted it here? Well, I figured this would be the best thread to put it in.

Raku's growth this year has unironically been my favorite part of TJPW this year. She's had enough good matches that I think it's pretty safe to say that it's not just her opponents carrying her either. She plays the underdog babyface perfectly and her matches do a great job of making it feel like she's getting closer to victory each time or being more aggressive.

TJPW ain't called an idol wrestling company for no reason, I think only the recent rookies are becoming the wrestlers of the group like Suzume, the further down the card, the worst the wrestling skills are, but they're all entertaining and that's all that really matters, i don't go in expecting 4 star matches up and down the card.

Riho would be neither pushed nor jobbed out regardless, as she's a freelancer, and Stardom notably doesn't really do anything of note with the few freelancers they book (Kaori Yoneyama's just done a bunch of openers, and that's about it).

Add on the "AEW Champ" bit, and well... now even more will Riho do nothing of note in the company. She's literally just a body/attraction to pad out cards, beating rookies and the lower card talent.

Half the rosters has 2 years of experience or less and yet they still wrestle better than a major portion of the WWE and AEW women's rosters. The most experienced woman on the roster has 7 years under her belt. Compare that with other joshi companies that have workers with 10, 15, 20 or even 30 years of experience as wrestlers and trainers and of course you're going to see some differences.

But are the wrestlers bad or just badly booked and not allowed to shine? We have countless examples of wrestlers, male and female, who shined in NXT and stunk up the joint on the main roster. And I have no doubt Vince and Dunn don't want the women upstaging the men. Joshi girls have no such restrictions.

it's both, on the one hand, they don't push those coming through the system half as hard as in japan (this is your reminder to watch gaea girls). but women's wrestling in every major US fed outside of maybe TNA/Impact has always been treated as peripheral. i don't need to remind y'all about the Diva Search era or women of honor or whatever, but it's bigger than that
becky and sasha got as over as they did by lucky accident rather than purposeful booking to be as such. evolution (and i'd argue the MYC too) existed only to cover up the saudi ppv that was on the next day. christ, all the fucking hullaboo about AEW being "progressive" or whatever the fuck and the whole build-up for the big student-teacher title match at their ppv that's loaded with history was Emi Sakura having to do the whole thing on Twitter and then kenny omega retweets one of the tweets like "Wow! What A Great Matchup!" and then goes just under triple the runtime that title match did in his own main event. women's wrestling is second-fiddle standard because it's forced to play second-fiddle (this is my main point against the whole "Women In NJPW" thing - yes, it would very nice to see a big balls-to-the-walls joshi fight in Sumo Hall or Tokyo Dome, but the fact that joshi is it's own entity in Japan allows it to be given the care and reverence it needs to be as good it as it can be. when you have to juggle two rosters and decide who's going to warm up the crowd for the inconsequential 8-man with YOSHI-HASHI, Rocky Romero and Yujiro then of course the product is going to suffer. and given how patriarchal japanese society already is and has been, that isn't exactly the best thing)

That being said: there is a dedicated scene for women's wrestling in America. You could watch Shimmer, Shine, Rise, Sabotage, WWR, Queens of Combat, Respect! (shoutout Rocky Mountain), that's not even counting the European stuff like EVE and GLAM!, and I know I'm missing some more feds too. That's a lot of content - and yet there's absolutely no energy for that in the IWC, even when EVE books joshi stars with clout whenever they do something big (just this year they've gotten Iwatani, Kagetsu, Fujimoto, Command Bolshoi and more). We know for a fact that, as much flak as western's women's wrestling gets, that Tessa and Mercedes and Su and Shotzi and plenty of others are busting their ass wherever they go and yet there's still no energy for actually supporting women's wrestling. I don't even know what the fuck it is because it has to be bigger than moonsaulting culture or yellow fever or whatever, but it's just really disheartening to see. You want western joshi to be as good as it is in Japan? Start pushing it to that level. Support it and talk about it and hold it to the same standard as you would Stardom or Sendai. Give them the financial resources, the platform and the energy to be as good as you want them to be. Or just go back to WrestleWithThePlot and stay out of the conversation

I like watching good wrestling, I'm indifferent to ass busting. If someone in a match isn't good, I don't care how much they're "busting their ass", they're not good and I won't watch again. If we're talking about female only feds, there simply isn't enough good talent to go around. In light of that, your best bet at watching women's wrestling in the anglosphere is to watch NXT or impact (if Tessa is booked).

There's no energy for shimmer (or other feds) because it's not that good or marketed well (and this certainly isn't unique to female only feds). Women's wrestling could be popular if there was a fed that had all the top female talent and had distribution on par with something like Powerrr, but Powerrr doesn't even make money, so what's the point?

Now, in light of this, there's little incentive for a woman to be a good wrestler. Your only going to get paid real money if you make to the WWE main roster, and they aren't looking for good wrestlers. They're looking for someone who Vince finds attractive. Hopefully, in time, Tessa or Rhea Rilpey break this mold, but until then, everyone is stuck in this situation where bad female wrestling is the most lucrative, so that's what most wrestlers will train to be.

Honestly I think the training is the biggest part of it. When you're a rookie in joshi/very early in your career it largely seems like you're expected to really only do the fundamentals where your biggest high spot will probably be a crossbody. Far more important is being able to get across emotion and learning how to do little things to keep the crowd into what you're doing. You basically start off raw and not quite as indistiguishable and slowly earn the right to start showing more uniqueness as you develop and get a better feel for yourself as a wrestler and what you can do, expanding what you train in and work on and stuff.

I mean think of the prototypical joshi rookie match: two girls (often in just basic one piece swimsuits/leotards) throwing a lot of forearms and dropkicks while doing a lot of roll ups. On one hand it can make rookie matches skippable but when done well which leads to matches like this:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=viV75EHK_JI

Listen to how hot that crowd is when half the match has about a year or less experience and is barely doing anything fancier than a dropkick. IMO you have to be able to do a lot with a little before you can start doing all of the flips and lucha submissions and whatever.

I think this isn't just a women's thing, although it definitely calls out the hypocrisy of the fans who cry about women's participation but won't ever check out those feds.
I'm not going to say I'm a massive western women's watcher, but Tessa vs Mercedes Ironwoman from RISE was my MOTY last year and I have raved about it in many places. But the same thing goes for mens and mixed indies too. people only care about big promotions. I think women only fed also have a bit of a fetishy stigma

As regards to AEW, they had the absolute golden opportunity to start a fed where women were equal from the start and they blew it. They had a fanbase ready to watch anything they put out and could have easily had Riho vs Nyla headline, but they went the WWE route straight away.

I understand what you mean. Workrate doesn't automatically mean a great match. There are many ways to deliver what the fans want. This goes back to why people find the TJPW undercard watchable. The charisma and the in-match storytelling. Psychology always Nick Gages workrate aside from rare spectacles.

Raku versus her first ever singles opponent. If I remember it correctly it was a short match where Yuka looked frustrated and seemed to want to get it over with. Now, if Yuka wants it to be and they put it together as well as the Sakisama match the other day, it could be the best match on the card.

Saki Akai is having a 7 match series against famous non DDT Joshi talent. Her first match was against Tsukasa Fujimoto, Her second is against Sakura Hirota. Sakura has twin 2 year olds that she takes pretty much everywhere with her. So Saki was like "uhhhh why are they here playing? Is this really Ok?" And Sakura said she's right near by so they'd be fine. Then they proceeded to do the press conference as normal except when they got to the question portion the reporters started asking more questions about the kids than the match. So there were a couple of jokes about that and whether or not Saki liked kids. Silly stuff like that. After all that was done, they had the photo-op time So they posed with the twins because DDT.

Sucks that this was the card that showcased Kakeru and Yuu. The crowd was kinda shit, comatose for the whole show. They are usually more into the matches and a lot louder. The shots of Ozaki and Ohka looking bored during the main event were great though.

Does Kyuri just have other stuff going on that leaves her with less time to wrestle? Looking at Cagematch there are large chunks of time this year where she'd only work like two or three shows a month.

Good thing that Syuri got her hand up and blocked some of this because the second kick is always brutal when Sareee whiffs the first

I hope that every member of the team at least gets an opportunity to dance with Aja and this isn't going to be an extended squash.

Honestly it's going to be worth it just for Aja taking part in the Oyasumi Express. Also when Raku pins Yuna or Mina.

I think they said she was doing less dates because of her school, I think she is in college or vocational school.

So that's it, huh? A year long story just to end up back where we started. What a waste of time.
