Stardom x Stardom 2018 Results & Review (8/12/2018)

Published

on

Welcome back to Stardom coverage and I was pleasantly surprised to see that their most recent show was uploaded fully right away because it usually takes about a couple of weeks for the full shows to come up. Originally I was gonna do the July 29th show that had Kagetsu/Starlight Kid and Mayu/AZM, but with this show being uploaded and it leads to the 5 Star Grand Prix, I figured this would be a better place to start.

We got a stacked card tonight with two title matches and a highly anticipated debut which I will get to when it happens. If you have read my preview of the tournament, I did post a little spoiler of the main event but that doesn’t mean it’s not worth covering since I have no doubt Mayu and Kagetsu delivered. How will this show do? Will it be enough to get people hyped up for the Grand Prix? Why don’t we find out and just…dive right in?

 

Singles Match
Dust vs. Leo Onozaki

Review: We got another gaijin that just started out in Stardom this year and her name is Dust, who is also known as Zoey Skye or Angel Dust in the indy scene and has been wrestling for about eleven years now. She was also trained by JT Lightning and Johnny Gargano, so she seems to have quite the impressive resume along with where she wrestled and being the current Heart of SHIMMER Champion. Her opponent tonight is JAN member, Leo Onozaki or as I like to call her now, the Cutter Girl and yes, I am brought back her Cutter Counter since I feel like it. Let’s see how these two pair off against each other.

I really can’t say if Leo has gotten significantly better as a wrestler since the last time I’ve seen her wrestle, but I can say that her flow has improved and I guess you can say that’s progress. I can’t say much about Dust and how well she did due to her opponent for the match, but she did do her part for being the heel in the match and doing her best to carry her and the match. The match itself though wasn’t terrible, but it was more basic than anything here. Leo would hit two Cutters in the match and she tried to roll Dust up, but Dust would turn it around with her hands on the ropes which the referee kicked to make her let go as Leo used it to roll her up for a two count. Dust would pick Leo up and hits the Backstabber and claims a victory.

Leo’s Cutter Counter: 2 (I wasn’t lying)

 

Tag Team Gauntlet Match
AZM & Konami vs. Hazuki & Natsu Sumire vs. Starlight Kid & Tam Nakano vs. Hanan & Shiki Shibusawa vs. Kaori Yoneyama & Natsuko Tora

Review: Our only tag match on this show and it’s a gauntlet match where the winner will become number one contenders for the Goddesses of Stardom Championships. We got quite the selection with JAN, Oedo Tai, STARS, Queen’s Quest, and the other team as we got some nice pairings for some good combinations. Which team comes out on top to become the next challenger for the titles?

The first two teams starting this match off are Hanan and Shiki as they take on Queen’s Quest and the winner of that match will advance to fight the next team. The first match for what it was wasn’t too bad at all as Shiki and Hanan worked surprisingly well together in the matchup and had good little offense here, especially Hanan who actually held her own against both Konami and AZM here. Hanan was very impressive with her judo style and how she was tossing them around mostly as I’m glad she keeps on improving and hoping the best for her. Konami would ruin the moment as she flipped Hanan over into an Armbar and made her tap out as Oedo Tai is next. You see Sumire and Hazuki holding Nanangetsu till she accidentally dropped her as Nao Yamaguchi…transformed back into her…wait, so the Oedo pupper and Nao are the same? That’s kinda weird there, but least the puppy is back. They give us another solid short match with Hazuki taking most of the control of the match after QQ tried to attack Oedo Tai before the bell rang and despite a couple of sloppy spots and one botch, it worked for what it was and AZM is just on fire right now and still crazy she’s only fifteen years old. Nao even got involved by hitting a Double Clothesline onto QQ and Sumire doing her grinding Bronco Buster thingy, but it would be Sumire and AZM near the end as they were both on the apron until AZM went back in to kick her out but had to deal with Hazuki first before hitting a Double Stomp off the top rope onto Sumire as Konami pulls her out to eliminate her as Queen’s Quest moves on once again to now fight JAN

Natsuko seems to be rocking some type of new gear here and I gotta say, I like how it looks on her and gives it more color with hopefully a personality mixed with it. Queen’s Quest already took out two teams and they can now attempt to do it a third time as Kaori and Natsuko are taking advantage of their fatigue here and not holding back on what they need to do to try and get the win to advance. Another short bout and makes sense due to the gauntlet but JAN takes Konami out of the picture to leave AZM alone in the ring to do their double teaming on her as they ran right into her and now Kaori hits a Senton off the second rope leading with Natsuko hitting a Frog Splash off the top rope and they eliminate Queen’s Quest with an impressive victory and now must fight STARS members, Tam Nakano and Starlight Kid. This one was rather quick itself and was hoping for it to be short and sweet, but that doesn’t be the case here as this unfortunately turned rather sloppy and a bit of a cluster which is a shame too because the majority of the whole gauntlet was enjoyable and gave it a weak ending to it. JAN missed with little running into their opponents to make them crash into each other and Starlight hits Kaori with a Tilt-a-Whirl DDT to knock her out as Tam hits a knee off the second rope on Natusko, then Starlight does a Standing Moonsault off the ropes, and tops it off with Tam hitting a Running Knee to get the pinfall victory. Tam and Starlight will fight fellow STARS members, Mayu Iwatani and Saki Kashima at a later date for the Goddesses of Stardom Championships and I’m looking forward to it.

Singles Match
Jungle Kyona vs. Utami Hayashishita

Review: This is probably one of the highest anticipated debuts that I’ve heard about in quite some time in Japan. Around July 5th, Utami has taken her pro wrestling test to show she has graduated and is ready to compete in Stardom, and she appears to have passed the test in about four months which is quite fast and very impressive. Her debut is set for this one and has a match against Jungle Kyona which is pretty big for someone for just a debut match and have been hearing a lot of buzz about her before this took place and had to find out some info on her. Utami is nineteen years old and turns out she was a reality TV star from a show about her family called “Tsuukai! Big Daddy” which starred her father, Kiyoshi Hayashishita and was interested in wrestling since middle school, so this was something she wanted to do and had the support from her family to do this. Hearing about her and seeing her test videos along with an interview, this definitely got me interested to see how it plays out.

Before I talk about the match itself, let me take this time to talk about Utami and how I feel about her overall performance here due to this being her first match and I gotta say this, Utami is a star. I know you may think I’m crazy for saying this about someone during their debut in wrestling but there’s something about her when I saw her in the ring and how she was wrestling in this match. She had the look of a professional wrestler, she sold when she needed to sell with the moves she took, her arsenal has a nice variety of strength and technical, she was crisp in the ring, and she has that certain charisma that gets the fans to support her and being a reality star helped since she was welcomed with open arms right away. I was fully expecting this to be a six-minute showcase match with the veteran going over the rookie, but I am thankfully glad that’s not the case here since this was back and forth between the both of these women here to give us a great match. Utami had Kyona in a Chokehold and it looked like she was about to pass out or tap out but she was able to get to the ropes in time before that seems to be the case here. Jungle slammed Utami down and it looked like she was about to go for her Jungle Bomb but Utami would hold onto her foot to make her not get her all the way up as the bell rings meaning the match passed its time limit of fifteen minutes!

I was really surprised the match ended in a draw and again was expecting a squash match and I’m glad they didn’t go that way, otherwise, I don’t think the match would’ve been that impactful. The fans would give the both of them a loud ovation and the president of Stardom, Rossy Ogawa congratulated Utami on her debut and he told her that he had one spot open for the Five Star Grand Prix and he would like her to be a part of it. Talk about a huge opportunity here since she just had one match and is now already part of the biggest tournament in the company. I don’t know how she’ll do, but something to take advantage of for sure. Utami is definitely someone you would even see on Sendai Girls roster and would probably be their top champion just like how she will be in Stardom if she keeps it up.

Wonder of Stardom Title Match
Momo Watanabe (c) vs. Saki Kashima

Review: This is Saki’s first ever singles title match since her return to the company a few months ago and her first title match is against current Wonder of Stardom Champion, Momo Watanabe. Momo has been stepping up a lot lately ever since she defeated Io for the belt in May and has been defending it three times so far with some impressive defenses with her most notable one being against Hazuki a couple weeks ago. This will mark as Momo’s fourth defense and Saki is gonna be no pushover and this is exactly what I needed to see to see her real progression with singles matches since most of them have all been tag team matches. Can Momo add defense number four or will Saki be a double champ?

Momo is definitely picking up shades of her former mentor, Io Shirai just by showing no respect to her opponent to even bother giving Saki and handshake and rushes over to her to kick her down right away soon as the bell rings to really show that aggressive side to her. I wanted to see more singles action with Saki Kashima and that is exactly what I got here with her to see how she would do and she still proves that she hasn’t lost a step in her five year period absence and has finally shown us that not only is she here to stay this time, but can be a key player in the promotion to be considered one of their top girls. The two had great chemistry in the ring and had that intensity that I like seeing in these matches since they both had something to prove here tonight and they definitely did. Saki had Momo on the ropes for quite a while and had some very close calls throughout the match like how she would hit her Killswitch to knock out Momo and just kicked out very weakly to show that she almost lost her title right there. Momo would hit her Package Driver only for Saki to try and roll her up but Momo rolls back into position to hit another one while hurting her own knee in the process, but Momo fights through the pain to pick Saki up for a Tequila Sunrise but picks her up again to hit it again to double tap as Momo retains the title once again.

World of Stardom Title Match
Kagetsu (c) vs. Mayu Iwatani

Review: Our main event tonight is the World of Stardom Championship with our Prime Minister Kagetsu defending the championship against Mayu Iwatani. Funny that last year, Mayu was defending the title against Kagetsu and was able to retain it, and now the roles reversed a year later. On Io’s last day at Stardom, Mayu would pin Kagetsu to win the match and has earned the right to challenge her for the red belt. Mayu has been chasing for the title ever since she had to drop it due to her injury and during her first attempt in April against Toni Storm, she failed to capture the belt and got moved to the back of the line until now for her second chance at redemption. Our Prime Minister, however, won’t be giving up the title so easily after fighting for her first reign for so long and now that she has it, she doesn’t wanna drop it anytime soon. One of the most anticipated matches for the red belt this year since you got two of the best fighting each other for the top spot of the company. Which one is it going to be?

How many times has Kagetsu attempted to murder Mayu whenever they’re in the ring together? Because that is exactly what she tried to do again when they fought outside the ring with Kagetsu wrapping something around Mayu’s neck as she dragged her all the way to the top of the Korakuen Hall and hangs her over the balcony to choke her out and just drops her to make her land on the floor. Our Prime Minister has gone crazy and doesn’t end it there as she kicked her down the stairs making Mayu roll all the way down like something you saw when Hiromu and Taiji fought at the BOSJ. The match told a story between our two top women here fighting for the spot to claim that they’re the top person to lead the company into a brighter future. The two mostly just kick each other and each kick they do to each other gets deadlier and deadlier with them being dazed, knocked down, or laying down in a weird position as if they partied way too hard and woke up in a different country. Both of these women pulled off just about every stop they had to do to try and get the win and none of them worked, for example, Kagetsu hitting three Michinoku Drivers in a row and Mayu kicked out at one but Mayu hits a Dragon Suplex Hold for even Kagetsu to kick out at one herself, showing their fighting spirit in this match to show no quit here. Mayu hits another Dragon Suplex and once Kagetsu rolled back up, she attempted to spray mist in her eyes but Mayu ducked it and Suplexes her once again for another kick out. Kagetsu hits the Oedo Coaster and Mayu kicked out of it that time too and both of them are out of it right here. Kagetsu showed she had more drive here as she would hit another Michinoku Driver, a Death Valley Driver, and tops it off with another Oedo Coaster right on top of her to retain the World of Stardom Championship!

After the match, Kagetsu celebrated in the ring and announced that today was her ten year anniversary as a wrestler and thanks Mayu for being her opponent on this special day and extends her hand for Mayu to shake, but Kagetsu psyches her out and tells Mayu that she failed to win once again and proved that she was the better wrestler. Kagetsu tells her that they’re on opposite blocks for the Five Star Grand Prix and she hopes that Mayu makes it to the top just like Kagetsu plans to for her own block and thinks it would be wise not to face her again. Mayu would talk about how her opportunities at being the champion aren’t over just yet and she vows to win the tournament and going to reclaim that title. Momo came out telling Mayu to shut up and how she retained her title four times now and looks to win the tournament to add the World of Stardom Championship to her career while still holding the Wonder of Stardom Championship. Kagetsu was getting tired of everyone interrupting her and says they need to give the fans what they want and that is an Oedo Tai dance for the fans and once that was over, Kagetsu hands the microphone over to Utami to close the show for them and she does so by saying the line. “Believe now, Shine tomorrow. We Are Stardom”

Rating: Bruce Prichard and a half.

 

Overall: I thought this was a great show with two great title matches, a highly anticipated debut, Nao returning, and a fun tag gauntlet match. This was a fine way to end the show and get the Five Star Grand Prix some hype to make people interested in watching it and I hope you follow me and Andrew once again as we cover this tournament together.

Favorite Match: Kagetsu vs. Mayu Iwatani

Least Favorite Match: Dust vs. Leo Onozaki

Score: 8/10

Second night for the B Block! Jay White and Tetsuya Naito need to get on the scoreboard. Did it happen?

Sapporo is a fun city for the main event, with a lot of general history.

Will Ospreay having a neck injury means he’s not working the undercard tonight.

Those are probably the two points that matter the most. So I guess let’s get to the show!

Ratings:

  • Jyushin Thunder Liger & Kota Ibushi vs Yota Tsuji & Shota Umino: Ibushi wins via Half Boston Crab @8:20 – **
  • Toa Henare, Ren Narita & Tomoaki Honma vs EVIL, BUSHI & SANADA: BUSHI wins via MX @7:20 – ** 1/2
  • Minoru Suzuki, Yoshinobu Kanemaru, Zack Sabre Jr & Lance Archer vs KENTA, Clark Connors, Karl Fredricks & Hiroshi Tanahashi: Kanemaru wins via Deep Impact @11:30 – ***
  • Chase Owens & Bad Luck Fale vs Kazuchika Okada & YOSHI-HASHI: Okada wins via Rainmaker @8:45 – ** 1/4
  • Block B: Shingo Takagi vs Toru Yano: Shingo wins via Pumping Bomber @6:15 – ** 3/4
  • Block B: Juice Robinson vs Hirooki Goto: Juice wins via Pulp Friction @12:20 – *** 1/2
  • Block B: Jon Moxley vs Jeff Cobb: Moxley wins via Draping Deathrider @8:55 – *** 1/4
  • Block B: Tomohiro Ishii vs Jay White: Ishii wins via Vertical Drop Brainbuster @19:15 – **** 1/2
  • Block B: Taichi vs Tetsuya Naito: Taichi wins via Last Ride @21:00 – *** 3/4

 

Analysis:

Liger and Ibushi take on Young Lions because Will Ospreay is nursing an injury. So this was unexpected, but who’s gonna argue with some Liger? Bare bones basic Young Lion match, but Liger and Ibushi kept the interest high.

EVIL and SANADA are facing one another on Thursday, but they were on the same team tonight. Part of this story was BUSHI remaining to look strong since the end of the BOSJ, while EVIL and SANADA had the tension building up. Instead of the LIJ fist bump after the win, EVIL tries to cheap shot SANADA, SANADA counters and then they have a stand off.

This Suzuki-Gun match was beautiful. It was just a gang fight, with each member of Suzuki-Gun taking someone off and Lance Archer even joined commentary at some point. House show quality match was a good way to describe this, but it was still fun and got across the point for future matches and just great character work.

It might be a little mean to say, but YOSHI-HASHI is in this match, so who cares? Chase Owens does prove why he’s the glue that holds Bullet Club together. He’s a great tag team player and this year he’s looked a lot better than he has in the past. So we’ve got an alright match, Okada wasn’t gonna eat a pin, but I guess they wanted to protect YOSHI a little, so Chase ate the Rainmaker.

Shingo proved he watched the Naito match by trying to get Yano to take off his shirt. Anyone who saw Shingo in Dragon Gate knows he’s got some comedy chops being a former…wait…the current, Open the Owarai Gate champion (Owarai means comedy). Shirt, wrist tape and turnbuckle shenanigans ensue, but the right person won. Shingo gets on the board and doesn’t suffer the shame of getting bamboozled.

This tends to be an issue with Goto and Juice a lot of the time. By this, I mean boredom. Goto and Juice have bumped heads a few times and they both try very hard, but they aren’t exciting together. Juice being a quirky but not overly animated just means you get a snarky line and one move that may be entertaining (usually Left Hand of God) and then the action stalls. So both did good work, it was a tough match, but it wasn’t really anything crazy. Solid enough match though.

Moxley focused on Cobb’s left shoulder, so the story was to take out Cobb’s power and try to figure out how to end the match. We saw another solid match, and Moxley gets across more of his character. He does borderline heel tactics and then apologizes to the referee. So this brawling, unstable babyface is an old school gimmick in Japan, but not often seen in New Japan. It’s nice to watch, and Moxley taking advantage of Cobb’s positioning to hit the Draping Dirty Deathriding Paradigm DDT.

Jay White starts off against two of the heavier hitters from Chaos, his former stable. After taking Goto lightly, Ishii comes into this match after a big win over Jeff Cobb. White came into the match less relaxed, but still playing up his smarmy character. Ishii laid into Jay the whole match, where Jay tried to outsmart the Stone Pitbull, but Jay isn’t as clever as he thinks he is. A great match with well placed false finishes and a lot of tension. Fantastic back and forth, plus Ishii picking up the win is something special.

There were so many story threads going on here. Sapporo is the place of their Intercontinental Championship match earlier in the year where Taichi had Takashi Iizuka interfere. Iizuka left the Iron Fingers for Taichi, but he hasn’t used them in the 6 months he’s had them. This was a great struggle of wrestlers who were once rivals, but Naito has since eclipsed Taichi. Hell, Taichi even hit a Ganso Bomb, shades of his mentor Toshiaki Kawada. References, call backs and a solid match from a story telling perspective.  Work rate might not have been fantastic, but that’s the beauty of professional wrestling being more than the moves in the ring. Plus part of the fun of Taichi matches is watch Miho Abe react, since she’s such a lovely devoted valet.

Overall Score: 6.75/10

A lot of this show was driven by the stories and the historical threads between participants, opposed to the in-ring action. I appreciate the mixture of angles that New Japan shows attack with. Many newer fans just know NJPW for great hard hitting work rate, but the beauty of puroresu in general is how deep the stories go.

Sometimes the wrestlers reference things from their mentors/trainers, sometimes it’s just a story line from the isolationist politics that each puro company has dabbled with or sometimes it goes all the way back to when someone was a Young Boy in a dojo. The layers are there for those who wish to know, so part of the fun in nights like this, are what personally floats your boat.

The show was the weakest so far, but there were plenty of satisfying moments outside of ring work.

B Block Standings:

  • Tomohiro Ishii – 2-0 (4 Points)
  • Jon Moxley – 2-0 (4 Points)
  • Juice Robinson – 2-0 (4 Points)
  • Toru Yano – 1-1 (2 Points)
  • Hirooki Goto – 1-1 (2 Points)
  • Shingo Takagi – 1-1 (2 Points)
  • Taichi – 1-1 (2 Points)
  • Jay White – 0-2 (0 Points)
  • Jeff Cobb – 0-2 (0 Points)
  • Tetsuya Naito – 0-2 (0 Points)

(NOAH) WEEKLY NEWSLETTER VOL.43 ~ 14TH JULY 2019

Global Junior Tag League has started! Hisame let’s us know what’s going on in Pro Wrestling NOAH!

Global Junior Tag League has started! Hisame let’s us know what’s going on in Pro Wrestling NOAH!

CURRENT TOUR RECAP
After a long break in which it was thought that due to the silence coming from the roster, they had all gone on a short summer break, NOAH returned on the 12th July to hold a show in Tokorozawa.

In Global Junior Tag League, YO-HEY defeated Junta Miyawaki (although he did praise him afterwards in a rambling promo), and Chris Ridgeway defeated fellow STINGER, Kotaro Suzuki by making him tap.

Minoru Tanaka vs Daisuke Harada for Global Junior League, was the main event of the evening, and what a match it was. They pulled everything out of every drawer they had, Tanaka worked on Harada’s knee, while Harada worked on the neck. The match went to a thirty minute draw, and both spoke afterwards about it. Minoru Tanaka says that he won today, and he will win the league. He also mentioned that he wants to see more junior matches main event shows.

Daisuke Harada said that he would not let “that stranger” win, and he would challenge for the belt again, whether the fans liked it or not.

Takashi Sugiura and Hajime Ohara took on Masao Inoue and Kinya Okada, and there was the usual amusing Inoue\Sugiura interplay. Earlier in the evening, joining in with Marufuji not remembering Kenoh’s name, and vice versa, Takashi Sugiura joined in, but changed it so that he couldn’t remember Masao Inoue’s name. Inoue is a sufferer of gout, and naturally Sugiura targeted his foot by keeping him in the ankle lock after Kinya Okada had tapped, and then when his arms were lifted in victory, he continued stamping on Inoue’s foot.

Speaking of Marufuji and Kenoh, Kenoh (when the team of Marufuji, Yoshinari Ogawa, Hiroshi Yamato and Keisuke Ishii took on Kongoh), timed it just right when Marufuji bounced into the ring, landed and turned so that he was there waiting for him, and they both got in each others face. Inamura was chopped to ribbons.

As Go Shiozaki was still absent (he will return to the ring on the 15th), Katsuhiko Nakajima came to the ring carrying both of the tag belts. As he said at the match signing which took place on the 13th June, he was preparing more for the GHC Heavyweight than the singles, and so he started the match off against Kaito Kiyomiya. However, it wasn’t Nakajima who took the win, but Kaito Kiyomiya with the Tiger Suplex on Hi69.

NEWS

“THE COMPANY DOG”

In keeping in the theme of using pets on merchandise (a silhouette of one of Hitoshi Kumano’s little French Bulldog appeared on the back of one of his t-shirts, and Akitoshi Saito had a cat t-shirt) continued when NOAH put the head of Takashi Sugiura’s beloved Shiba Inu on a t-shirt, complete with dog tags which read “company dog”. Naturally, this was a shot at Kongoh (in specific Kenoh, as he is the only one who speaks), who are currently feuding with The Sugiura Army, and the use of the phrase “Company dog” (i.e. someone who does his masters bidding unquestionably, comes goes, fetches, wags tail etc).

The t-shirt will be released on the 15th July at Korakuen Hall, with mail order to follow (a white version is also available).

NAOMICHI MARUFUJI’S COMIC STRIP
Naomichi Marufuji has started illustrating a comic for “Weekly Pro”. The comic is a condensed version of his autobiography, “Heir To The Ark”, and starts off with his childhood growing up in Saitama with three older brothers, and wrestling with them which inspired his love of the sport. The comic starts off with two of his brothers arguing about who they are going to be, then they tell little Marufuji that they feel sorry for him, as being the youngest and the smallest, he is going to get it from them (which he did in reality), and Marufuji fighting back by saying that Tiger Mask (Mitsuharu Misawa) is strong.

You can find an ongoing translation on my blog.

TAKAYAMANIA

The main event for TAKAYAMANIA EMPIRE 2 will be Hideki Suzuki and Minoru Suzuki vs Naomichi Marufuji and Masato Tanaka. Event will be held on Monday, August 26 2019 at Korakuen Hall.
