G1 madness is going to make keeping up with Stardom hard over the next few weeks, but I’m going to try goddammit. As this incredibly late review will testify, that attempt has not started great.Continue reading
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.Continue reading
Stardom’s evening show in Osaka was Tokyo Cyber Squad’s chance to add a second set of belts to their ever-growing gang. Could they do it? Read on and find out.Continue reading
After a fantastic Korakuen, Stardom is back on the road for a two-show day in Osaka. As usual, the afternoon is building to the evening, so there is nothing standout on this card, but there is enough going on that I expect it to be good. Let’s go find out.Continue reading
Before we get into my review of Stardom’s latest trip to Korakuen, I want to talk about My Hobby, a series on Stardom World detailing wrestler’s, well, hobbies. So far, it has followed Mayu Iwatani and Saki Kashima hanging out with Mayu’s dog Pochi at a doggy day care, and it is the greatest thing that has ever existed. I was having a miserable day when I watched it, and it put an almost painful smile on my face. More videos of wrestlers having a good time with their pets, please. In fact, if Stardom wishes to ditch the wrestling business and transition into the wrestlers hanging out with pets business, I would probably be okay with it. Pochi is my Ace.

Stardom’s second show from Golden Week placed Queen’s Quest in charge of proceedings. STARS set a high bar with their efforts, so can the cops leap over it? Time to find out.Continue reading
It was recently Golden Week in Japan and Stardom ran a gimmick where each unit was handed an opportunity to produce a show. Up first were STARS, who put together a card headlined by the Costume Change Battle Royal. I shall be judging all the units based on their booking, so they better deliver quality throughout.Continue reading
This review is very late, a situation that you can blame on New Japan’s Super Junior Tag League.
wXw were forced to change the main event of World Tag Team League’s second night as an injury to everyone’s least favourite da, Absolute Andy, morphed the triple threat into a straight-up match between Ilja Dragunov and Bobby Gunns. However, rather than removing the title from the equation, they’ve taken a leaf out of MMA’s book and made it for the Interim Title. That’s exciting, isn’t it?
