Marvelous’s busy September concluded with a trip to Chiba, the hometown of one Mio Momono. Would the place of her birth inspire her to turn her recent dodgy form around? Well, let’s find out.

After a quiet couple of weeks, TJPW were back in Shinkiba to start making moves toward Wrestle Princess. The main event of this show decided who would challenge for the International Title while the semi-main put Shoko and Yuka on opposite sides of the ring. I’ve always got a base level of excitement for big TJPW shows, but let’s see if this manages to push me over the edge.

Marvelous (16/9/22) Review

The Marvelous roster has had a busy old month bouncing around Japan (and they’re not done yet), but they were back in the more familiar territory of Shinkiba for this show and in front of an audience who were permitted to make noise. It’s funny that such a simple thing is now capable of making me so happy, but it is a delight watching wrestlers hear people shout their name again (Mio particularly milked it), and it had this show in my good books before it had even started.

Marvelous have been all over the place recently, bouncing around Japan to catch up with the fans they haven’t been able to visit over the last few years or, as was the case on this show, ever before. It was their first-ever trip to Oita, and with all their other travels having delivered some lovely times so far, it seemed unlikely this would buck the trend, but hey, let’s find out.

Ramblings About’s Matches of the Month for August 2022

August has been a hell of a month for the old wrestling.

It means this is a long one, but fingers crossed it’s also a good one, and there will be plenty for you all to get your teeth into.

With the Princess Cup done and dusted, TJPW don’t have to wait long before their next visit to Korakuen Hall. They’ll be back in that famous old venue on the 28th of August, hosting a women-only event where everyone gets in for free. Before they get there, though, they’re nipping to KFC Hall, where they’ve booked a battle between two of the stars of the final days of the Cup, Miu Watanabe and Pom Harajuku. Now, that’s exciting!
