After a very successful trip to Ota City, Ice Ribbon returned to Korakuen for the first of Tsukushi’s title defences. In a nice role reversal, she faced the person she provided the first defence for last year, Suzu Suzuki. That also happened to be one of 2020’s best matches, so there were rather large expectations on their shoulders. Let’s see if they could live up to them.Continue reading “Ice Ribbon #1161 ~ Sweet November (28/11/21) Review”
Recently, I’ve moved away from reviewing shows that haven’t aired live because, to be honest, there are only so many hours in the day.

A wee reminder before I get started that this is only the third Ice Ribbon show I’ve watched, so don’t expect me to have an encyclopedic knowledge of the promotion. If I make mistakes/miss anything important or obvious, please let me know. I like learning about things.Continue reading “Ice Ribbon #1029 (14/3/20) Review”
