Mathew’s Stardom 5 Star Grand Prix Blue Stars Results & Review: Day 3



Welcome to another day of Stardom’s Five Star Grand Prix and it’s going to be a little bit different for this one since we’ll be covering two shows in this one article.

Why do you ask?

Well, it’s because Stardom actually did two shows on August 26th where one happened in the afternoon while the other happened at night and instead of doing just three matches in two separate articles, I figured having all six matches from my block on both those shows in one article is good enough.

Another thing that you’ll notice for this one is that some of them will be double booked, booked once, or not booked at all and saving them for another date. This one won’t fully determine who will be eliminated at this one due to not everyone being booked, but the September 1st show might start seeing who has a chance and who doesn’t.

Let us adventure down and…dive right in.


Afternoon Show:


Grand Prix Blue Stars Match
Saki Kashima vs. Nicole Savoy

Review: With the both of them being able to get a win in the previous show with Nicole defeating Natsu Sumire while Saki defeated her partner, Mayu Iwatani. Both of these women winning here could help them out with keeping them alive on the scoreboard. Saki claimed that this is the first time she’ll fight a gaijin and wants to do her best while Nicole promises us more Suplexes, more I say!

This match was very ground-based with how Nicole was handling the majority of the match and it’s not really a bad thing since that is her style and it works for her and Saki did try her best to hold out on her own a little bit as well, but Nicole is just more superior in it compared to Saki. It was still solid for what it was and Saki was able to hit her jumping Hurricanrana much better this time against Nicole and tops it off with a Headscissor to throw her off guard and hopefully get a chance to find an opening in the match, but that doesn’t fully work out in her favor when she failed to hit the Killswitch. Nicole was just too dominating with her Suplexes and was able to hit a regular one, a German, and a Half Nelson Suplex onto Saki but was still able to kick out and Nicole went straight into the Triangle Choke until Saki made it over to the ropes. Saki kept on fighting till she couldn’t fight anymore as Nicole hits the Exploding Suplex and gets her second victory.

Grand Prix Blue Stars Match
Momo Watanabe vs. Natsu Sumire

Review: We have our Wonder of Stardom Champion, Momo Watanabe going up next as she is still undefeated in our block and looks to fight someone that doesn’t have a win at all and it’s our Oedo Tai member that’s in charge of the declining birthrate, Natsu Sumire. Sumire had a little story as to why she hates the name Momo and explains that there was a woman named Momo and pretty much told her off and now has hated the name since and that’s why she’ll kick her ass. Momo didn’t say much since she said she’s only booked for the noon show and just wants to win so she can get six points. Can Momo remain undefeated or will Sumire pull a Toru and be the spoiler?

Sumire really wants you to shake her hand, like a lot. She keeps attempting it and won’t really do the match until you do, but you all know what’s going happen and even her opponents can see that also, which is why they don’t wanna do it and even Momo kicks her hand out of the way. Eventually, Momo would humor her by doing it and Sumire goes for a punch before Momo ducked it and puts her in a choke as Momo would start to control the match from here by beating her down with her Somato and a couple of other strikes to make her feel pain, poor Sumire. Sumire did eventually find an opening when she rolled out of her Package Driver and would reverse some of her arsenals to do her ‘Bronco’ Buster, kicking her in the face, and even using her flogger to hit her, it looks like she has this in the bag now and could really pull it off and it eventually turns around on her. Momo went to go for the Tequila Sunrise only for Sumire to roll her up and Momo kicks out at two and kicks her in the head for good measure before running to the ropes where Sumire rolls her up into a cradle and she gets the surprise victory over Momo!

You heard right, Sumire ended the undefeated streak while getting rid of her own losing streak as the Prime Minister Kagetsu runs in to embrace the victory with her. After the embrace, Sumire would taunt Momo letting her know she wants the Wonder of Stardom Championship and once Momo taunted it in front of her, Sumire would grab it out of her hands and run out of the ring with it as Momo punched her down before Sumire was able to put it around her own waist for a moment. Hazuki was able to get into Momo’s face after it happened and it’s still showing the bad blood between the two meaning that they’re not done yet.

Rating: Eric Bischoff and a half.


Grand Prix Blue Stars Match
Mayu Iwatani vs. Jamie Hayter

Review: Mayu appears to be in a bad spot due to losing her first two matches and losing one more right here could really hurt her chances of winning and must now take on Jamie Hayter who has a decent record with one win and loss, but losing here would also put her in a bad spot if she loses her next one also. Both would need a win, but Mayu needs it more to stay alive and she really needs to show that drive right here, can she do it or will she have zero wins and three losses in her name?

Before the match, Mayu said she needed a little bit of a rewind to help collect herself to do better in the tournament and I feel like that was exactly what she did in this match right here as she seemed to have the majority of the control here in this match with Jamie only getting some offense here and there. Mayu was basically kicking and slapping her around at first, and it looked like her confidence was coming back along with doing what it takes to win the match since she’s in a desperate spot. Jamie eventually found an opening and was able to knee her in the face to go for the pin and it was a two count right there. Mayu wouldn’t let Jamie keep the momentum going for long and kicked her down along with a Double Stomp from the second rope and once she went to go back up, Jamie hits a Superplex and a Falcon Arrow to top it off for Mayu to kick out again. Jamie went for another knee for Mayu to roll her up for a two count and Mayu desperately tries to roll her up again for Jamie to kick out and start forearming her chest to keep her down and once Jamie went to pick her up, Mayu grabbed her to roll her into another pin and Mayu gets her first win!

After the match, Mayu would grab the microphone to talk to the crowd by first wishing them all a good afternoon. She also talked about how she had zero points and now finally is able to get two points and was the first time in a while that she’s won a singles match and the last time that happened was during the Cinderella Tournament three months ago. She will be booked tonight to take on Natsu Sumire and hopes they will return later on for that show.

Night Show


Grand Prix Blue Stars Match
Jamie Hayter vs. Nicole Savoy

Review: So these two had a match earlier in the day where Jamie was defeated by Mayu and Nicole was able to defeat Saki, but now the two will be facing each other with Nicole having two wins and one loss while Jamie only has one win and two losses in their names. Jamie talked about how she’s been losing confidence here and is hoping to regain it by defeating Nicole while Nicole said she’s going to be throwing Jamie around with Suplexes. Which one of them wins here tonight?

The match was short and to the point since they both started off fairly even with each other with trying to reverse the Suplex or kick after kick to each other, but the emotion in Jamie would start to show off here. Jamie seems to be a bit more frustrated and it’s not with her opponent Nicole, but with herself since she’s just eager to win the match and Nicole would just kick out of whatever she threw at her…even if Jamie did miss hitting her knees to her twice and can sadly see it clear as day and it did hurt the match quite a bit. Nicole picked it up in high gear and hits her Fisherman Suplex for a two count and would go for her Half Nelson Suplex but Jamie would fight her off and hits the Michinoku Driver to pick up her second win here.

Rating: Tony Schiavone and a half.


Grand Prix Blue Stars Match
Saki Kashima vs. Kelly Klein

Review: Kelly is now set to fight as she was one of the ones that wasn’t double booked for the two show and takes on someone who just wrestled earlier today, Saki Kashima. Saki fought Nicole and was unable to defeat her, so losing two nights in a row would put her in a bad spot. Nicole said she is back to dominate her opponent and also talked about the excitement of fighting people she hasn’t wrestled before and it was a test to herself in a way. Saki said she wasn’t able to power up to win earlier today and fears she might not be able to power up tonight, but she’s looking to try her best. Can Saki pull off another upset or will Kelly dominate?

Kelly is a beast and I mean that in a good way, she has the size of a monster and how she crushes her opponents makes it so convincing that if you step in the ring with her, you might not have a chance of walking out after she’s done with you. That was pretty much how this match turned out, Kelly dominating the majority of it and Saki would usually try to get the fast one with rolling her up and would normally have Kelly kick out at one and just crushes Saki with just stiff kicks and choking her out throughout the match. Saki would eventually find a little bit of an opening when she kicked her and went for a Hurricanrana off the top rope but would eventually get caught into a Powerbomb onto the turnbuckle with an impressive feat of strength. Kelly would sit on the turnbuckle and pick Saki up by her neck to choke her out while her feet were hanging off the mat until the referee told her to let go before the five count. Saki is showing no signs of quit after everything being thrown at her and would do the Black Widow hold to try and knock Kelly down to size until she transitioned it into a Sleeper Hold for good measure but Kelly broke out of it and got caught in a Stunner by Saki instead. Saki went to try and pick her up but Kelly was too strong for her as she turned it around to make her go face first in a weird DDT and tops it off with a knee to the face as Kelly picks up her second win, leaving Saki with three losses now.

Grand Prix Blue Stars Match
Mayu Iwatani vs. Natsu Sumire

Review: Our final match for the Blue Stars block is two women who have fought early on with May uIwatani taking on Oedo Tai’s Natsu Sumire. Both of them have won their matches with Mayu defeated Jamie Hayter and Sumire defeating Momo Watanabe, so now the two would need to win here or the loser will be stuck with three losses and in a bad spot on the rankings. Sumire tells us a story about a girl named Mayu much like she did earlier with Momo and talked about this Mayu from when she worked at a moving company, and how this Mayu would flirt with the manager even though he was married and started getting jealous when this manager hired Sumire, so Sumire vowed to never act like that Mayu when she turns 40 and will not lose to Mayu tonight. Mayu just talked about how to be careful with Sumire due to her usually being sneaky and to not get careless so she can get another two points. Can Mayu win twice in one night or will Sumire be the one to win two in a row?

Sumire going for that handshake again and we all know what’s going to happen when her opponent actually shakes her hand, but Mayu actually does shake her hand and Sumire does…nothing!? Well, this was quite the surprise or so you think as she does it again due to not feeling too satisfied with their first handshake and once Mayu does it a second time, Sumire hits her with a forearm, what a heel. Much like her match with Momo, it was very entertaining due to Sumire giving the fans some nice laughs to keep them happy with her antics while Mayu would try to wrestle the match itself. Sumire had Mayu on the ropes for a while and for some reason decides to hit her pelvis onto her face…(insert Tom Phillips joke here), and Sumire did seem to have some of the early control into the match until Mayu would kick her leg out leading Mayu to try and chase Sumire around the ring for a moment but eventually gets caught by Mayu when she psyched her out. Mayu went to the top rope to try and dive to the outside but Sumire grabbed her flogger to hit her down and began to choke her out with it as they would fight outside the ring and…she’s now dragging her to the stairs, and now down the stairs to the back where the merchandise table is, but she now drags her outside of the arena! No, I’m not kidding and the referee isn’t even going to count this since he’s just following them while Sumire just grabbed her by the hair and hits her head on a bus as she uses this time to run back to the arena and they were pretty far too, Sumire eventually got back into the ring as the referee officially starts the count.

While the referee was counting, Sumire would start to take some of the chairs to try and block a path while Hazuki ran to the door so she could lock it to secure the countout victory for Sumire. STARS would try to move the chairs out of the way but Sumire would throw them to the side before getting back in the ring and during the fourteen-count, Mayu snuck in through the back door and made her way into the ring while the referee was still counting, knowing that Mayu came in just to throw Sumire off and once Sumire realizes what just happened, Mayu hits her with a German Suplex. I kinda wish Mayu did her Dragon Suplex right there to get the victory because that would’ve been the perfect ending and I would’ve given the match a Jim Cornette just for that alone. Unfortunately, it didn’t end like that and it would go on a little bit longer as Mayu went for the Frog Splash but missed as Sumire hits the Reverse DDT for a two count. Mayu would attempt a German Suplex and would hold her there for a moment until she turned it into a Dragon Suplex Hold as she picked up her second victory!

Rating: Eric Bischoff and a half.


Overall: Natsu Sumire was the highlight of my block for these two shows since she delivered with her pre-match promos and just selling her character in the ring to not only give us a decent match but make them highly entertaining from both her matches. The rest of the show was decent for the most part but nothing really big to write home about, unfortunately.

Favorite Match: Natsu Sumire

Mathew’s AJPW Champion Carnival Results & Review: Day 4 (4/17/2021)

AJPW is back with Day 4 of the Champion Carnival and Mathew is back as well! Will Zeus stay undefeated? Check it out!



Hello everyone and you read it right, I have returned and ready to get the show on the road. I wanna thank Andrew for covering the first three days of the Carnival while I was on vacation while also dealing with laptop issues. Should be getting a new computer soon but in the meantime, gonna abuse this old laptop as much as I can till it happens. All Japan’s memorable time of the year, the Champion Carnival is currently underway and I’m here to take over the 6 remaining days.

It’s been a fun three shows so far and let’s see if the rest can deliver. Will Zeus remain undefeated?

Let’s find out as we…dive right in.

Champion Carnival 2021 Match
Shotaro Ashino vs. Kohei Sato

Review: Time for our first match-up as Shotaro Ashino takes on Kohei Sato. Ashino is in a bit of turmoil ever since he lost Enfants Terribles and only has one victory under his belt while losing his first two matches. Sato has a steady record as he only has one win and loss under his belt, and a win here would put him in the middle of the rankings. Can Ashino win two in a row or does he fall behind again?

These two started with some chain wrestling but it appears to be a stalemate as they transition into a chop battle, where Sato is winning. I know Sato may not look like much in a physical sense but he can deliver some stiff shots to you, so definitely wanna be careful when in the ring with this guy. Ashino did try to make a comeback with a European Uppercut but Sato forearms him down. In the grand scheme of things, Shotaro being on his own is a much better path for him since he was mostly known as Wrestle-1’s guy and leader of this group, and now that he doesn’t have them and is now a babyface, it’s a fresher start for him to see what he can do on his own.

Sato appears to be heading towards Ashino and it was the opening Shotaro needed to hit a Dragon Screw, making Sato go down and this is where he will shine. Shotaro with the Gutwrench but Sato kicked out. Shotaro going in with the leg work to try and weaken it for the Ankle Lock later but Sato grabbed the ropes. Shotaro ran the ropes but Sato catches him with a knee to the gut, gaining control of the match once again while delivering kicks to the chest and midsection. Sato went for the Brainbuster but Ashino reversed it, hitting a German Suplex as he goes for the cover but once Sato kicked out, Ashino quickly turned it into the Ankle Lock! Sato would eventually get to the ropes and Shotaro is forced to let go of the hold. Shotaro tried to get the ankle again but Sato punched him in the gut and it leads to an exchange of blows till Sato won that battle, topping it off with a Falcon Arrow as Shotaro kicked out at two! It wouldn’t last much longer as Sato quickly picked him up to hit the Drill-a-Hole Piledriver, getting the victory over Ashino. I know people are frustrated with how Ashino has been booked since arriving at All Japan but all it takes is patience, he’s basically started over and getting the slow build back up.

Rating: Eric Bischoff and a quarter.

Champion Carnival 2021 Match
Suwama vs. Koji Doi

Review: Time for our next match as Koji Doi takes on the Triple Crown Champion, Suwama. Suwama currently only has one win under his belt with two losses, so it’s a better record than last year but he still needs to find a way to get back up on the totem pole. Koji has the same record as the champ but a victory here would gain a lot of momentum. Will the champ prevail or does Koji pull an upset?

Loo at Koji getting the first advantage with a couple of shoulder tackles to the champ and oh wait, never mind, Suwama double chopped him and now has him in the corner. Suwama Irish-whips him into the corner but Koji reversed it as Suwama attempts a Lariat as Koji blocked it and hits his arm with a Codebreaker, turning it into a Fujiwara Armbar. After being forced to let go, Koji responds by stomping on his arm and having it through the ropes to pull on it. Koji Doi is someone I’ve always considered to be an underrated talent and glad he’s getting the opportunity on a bigger platform than Wrestle-1.

Suwama makes a comeback after hitting a flying shoulder tackle to get Koji down. Suwama then throws him into the corner to hit a Lariat before pulling him in for a Belly-to-Belly Suplex but Koji kicked out at two. Suwama called for the Last Ride but Koji was able to flip him over, leading the two to exchange blows until Koji tossed him into the ropes for a side slam. Koji delivered a Dropkick and would attempt to lift him but the champ refused to go up, causing Koji to just knock him down with a Lariat. Koji went for the Murder Lariat but Suwama catches him with a Belly-to-Belly Suplex, then gets him for a German, and then a Discus Lariat for good measure. Suwama hits the Backdrop but Koji got up to fight through the pain but Suwama applies the Sleeper Hold and Koji is out, giving Suwama the victory!

Champion Carnival 2021 Match
Jake Lee vs. Shinjiro Otani

Review: Halfway through the day as Zero1’s Shinjiro Otani takes on the leader of TOTAL ECLIPSE, Jake Lee. Jake Lee has made quite the transformation ever since he turned heel and took Enfants Terribles from Ashino, he has developed a whole new persona since then and it seems to be the change he needed to show he’s a top star. Can Jake bounce back from his first loss or will he lose two in a row?

There appears to be an issue under the ring as the referee and announcer go check on it before starting the match, guess a bar or piece of wood popped out. Now the match is underway with Jake delivering some stomps down on Otani but would eventually get tossed over the ropes. Otani would deliver some stomps of his own after getting Lee back into the ring, just stomping away at him into the corner until Jake tripped him, delivering more stomps onto him. Jake is wrestling a completely different style compared to how we’re used to seeing him and it works for his new persona. He delivers it well and this whole tournament is a great way to showcase his new self. Jake delivered stiff kicks to the midsection and Otani would eventually catch his foot to hit it with an elbow and leg sweep him off his feet.

Jake grabbed Otani’s head and delivered multiple knees to his head but Otani would eventually counteract with a German Suplex. Otani went for a palm strike but Jake delivered a knee to the gut and then one more knee to the back of his head after getting him down. Jake delivered a couple more knee shots to Otani as he’s laughing maniacally to the crowd before he went to pick him up to hit his new finisher, the D4C, which is a delayed vertical drop Brainbuster. Jake crossed Otani’s arms while covering him and gets the victory. If this is how Jake Lee is going to be, this may very well be the trigger to make him the next Triple Crown Champion.

Champion Carnival 2021 Match
Zeus vs. Yuma Aoyagi

Review: It’s now time for our main event as Purple Haze leader and last year’s winner, Zeus takes on NEXTREAM’s own Yuma Aoyagi. Zeus is currently the only one that remains undefeated in the tournament so far and a win here would help secure himself closer to the winner of the tournament. Yuma only has one win under his belt but a victory here can stop Zeus and remain strong in the game. Does Zeus remain undefeated or will Yuma be his first loss?

It’s good to see that Zeus is still a snacc, Mathew likes. Yuma failed to challenge Zeus in raw power after being tackled down but Yuma could still try to outsmart him as he had Zeuss over the top ropes and Dropkicked him to get him to the outside. 2021 has been a great year for Yuma, winning the tag titles for the first time, delivering solid matches at the beginning of the year, this little resurgance this past year has been a big plus for Yuma since he was falling behind in terms of star power. They fight outside briefly but Zeus would deliver his beautiful chops to hurt his chest and tossed Yuma back into the ring. When you think about it, Zeus is still undefeated from last year’s Carnival as well, so has that undefeated Carnival record carried over from his victory to this upcoming one, so it makes sense for Zeus to look as dominating as possible during this tournament.

Yuma got back into it when hitting a Crossbody onto Zeus but would kick out at one. Yuma tossed Zeus into the ropes but Zeus would hit a Flying Clothesline instead as the two are down but Zeus is getting up first, lifting him up for a Bearhug and tossed him over. Zeus calls for the Chokeslam but Yuma fights him off, delivering an below to the face and as he ran the ropes, he ducked under Zeus to hit a German Suplex. Yuma climbed to the top rope but Zeus chops him before coming up to hit a Superplex as the two men go down. Zeus hits the Chokeslam this time and climbs to the top rope to hit a Frog Splash but Yuma kicked out at two! Zeus quickly went for the Facelock and looks like he could tap but Yuma had his foot on the rope. Zeus called for the Jackhammer but Yuma reversed it into a German Suplex but Zeus quickly got up to attempt a Lariat, however, Yuma ducked again to hit another German. Yuma has the End Game locked in but Zeus was close enough to grab the rope, and break the hold. Zeus went for a Lariat but Yuma ducked as they ran the ropes, making Zeus hit the Lariat this time as Yuma was turned inside out. Zeus went for one more Lariat as Yuma reversed it into a Crucifix Pin and gets the surprising victory over Zeus! Big win for Yuma and Zeus is no longer undefeated.

Rating: Eric Bischoff and a half.

Overall: While none of the matches were mind blowing, everything was still solid. Nothing crazy or over the top, just solid and basic wrestling for this night. Hopefully tomorrow will deliver something different. We had two people in the top spot and two people who are one loss away from being eliminated.

Ashante “Thee” Adonis VS Jake Atlas!

The Braggadocios learned savvy from THE Brian Kendrick, but in a roundabout way, the Muscle of El Monte learned aggression from The Psycho Killer! Who puts the lessons learned into practice now that WWE is past WrestleMania?

It seems Old Man Ciampa’s lessons paid off! Will Atlas lift himself up towards a title opportunity now that Santos Escobar isn’t the champion?


August Grey VS Tony Nese!

#RetroAG finally got payback on Daivari Dinero, then was weirdly congratulated by him after defeating Adonis a few weeks ago. Will Daivari congratulate Grey again when he defeats Daivari’s fellow 205 Live OG? Or will the Premier Athlete prevent the new wave from taking over his brand?

Well Daivari is showing which side he’s on by accompanying Nese to the ring! Though he does get left hanging on that fist bump. Daivari joins commentary as the bell rings and Grey circles with Nese. They tie up, Nese waistlocks and slams Grey down! Nese then flexes on Grey, but fans are on Grey’s side as he and Nese circle again.

Fans fire up and Daivari has to get out of his seat because of that. Grey gets back to the ring, the ring count is 5 of 10! It keeps going, 7 of 10 but Nese is still down. Will Grey learn from last time?

NOPE! Grey goes out at 9 because he wants to win this in the ring! Daivari brings up how that messed him up with Mansoor, but Grey tells him to shut up. Nese rolls Grey up, but Grey turns it around! Grey wins!!

Winner: August Grey, by pinfall

What was that about messing up? Grey won “the right way,” but Daivari says it was just dumb luck! Will AG keep getting the better of the OG on 205 Live?

My Thoughts:

A very fun, very good 205 Live to get back to new content after WrestleMania. Atlas VS Adonis was a very good match, started to feel like the early days of 205 Live that we just relived last week. Atlas and Adonis being names from Greek myth, I kinda want them to try being a team at some point. Though at the same time, that feels like something early 2000’s WWE would do and maybe it’s best if they don’t? Who knows, maybe give it a try, see if something comes of it.

Grey VS Nese was also really good, and the story that’s building with Grey and these OG is pretty good. Daivari on commentary was explaining how Grey winning against Adonis with the feet on ropes was a twinkling of him being compatible with Daivari & Nese, who are solidly Heel. But Grey resisting that and doing things the solidly Face way is a good story in itself, so I hope this is how Grey builds himself up to at least try for the Cruiserweight Championship. Grey’s got a lot of innovative moves, as well, so I’d definitely be okay with seeing him try those with Kushida, maybe even Swerve and Ruff.

My Score: 8.2/10
