A quick note before we start, the hard camera for this show was all over the place. It hadn’t been stabilised and was wobbling about. There also appeared to be a couple of people having a quiet chat right next to it which was picked up on the microphone at times. Neither issue was a disaster, but if you are annoyed by things like that, you’re going to have a rough time.
Anyway, it’s Stardom at Korakuen which is almost guaranteed to be a good time at this point. Throw in Jungle Kyona vs Arisa Hoshiki, and you can probably upgrade the good to lovely.
I have very little to say in this introduction, so em, been up to much? Stardom’s latest show from Shin-Kiba 1st ring featured Leo Onozaki making her first title challenge, amongst other things, so it was a chance for the impressive rookie to show she has what it takes.
It’s Korakuen time! Stardom had put together a packed card for their latest trip to that famous venue, as a lot of titles were on the line. Will they all stay where they are? Or is it time for a couple to shift hands? I’ve been saying Momo was going to beat Bea since Bea won the belt, so I can’t back out of that now. Time to find out if I was right.
With Korakuen just around the corner, Stardom rocked up in Osaka with a bunch of title matches. The SWA, High Speed and Artists belt were on the line, and surely we got at one least switch out of that lot? I know the answer to that question, but I’ll keep those of you who don’t in suspense. Enjoy the review.
We’ve got two title matches on this show, with both of sets of tag belts being defended. It’s Tokyo Cyber Squad challenging in both cases, but I think it’s safe to say that the main event is the one with real intrigue as Jungle and Konami take on Momo and Utami. I can’t picture a world where that is anything less than great.
After their two show day in Osaka, Stardom headed to Shimane for Saki Kashima’s Homecoming. Unsurprisingly, she got herself a spot on the main event as STARS once again challenge Tokyo Cyber Squad for the Artist of Stardom Titles. They better not win! This is a pro-TCS website.
