They will compete in a Falls Count Anywhere match in the main event! Where won’t these two go to finally end the other?

Winner: Ligero, by pinfall

Conners is shocked by this second defeat! The Luchador of Leeds proves he’s not lucky but legit. Will Ligero soon move towards a title shot?

Surprisingly, Ligero offers Conners a handshake. Fans aren’t so sure about this. Conners looks to take it, but then leaves Ligero hanging. Will Conners snap back from this losing streak? Or will he just look to snap more of the “shiny new toys” in half?


NXT UK Media interviews Toni Storm.

The NXT UK Women’s Champion finally moves on from Rhea Ripley. But the Lightning from Down Under knows they’re all coming after her, and good luck to them. She’s on top of the world, and just wonders what’s next for her. Jinny is walking up behind her, and she doesn’t look happy. Will the Fierce Fashionista find her way to the title on this Road to Wrestlemania Weekend?


NXT UK takes a look at The Wildboar and The Primate.

The animalistic and intimidating duo look to make the NXT UK roster their hunting grounds. They return to NXT UK TV in two weeks, who will be their prey?


Gallus speaks.

“Mark and Joe. They’re related by blood. But that doesn’t make this any less of a fam.” Each man is unique, and collectively, they are Gallus. Gallus is not to be disrespected. Mark adds that since day one, it’s “them versus us.” Flash Morgan Webster and Mark Andrews found out what it’s like to be “them.” Mark and Joe want more. Joe won’t stand for disrespect. Gallus commands respect. Walter and Pete Dunne, their disrespect is like coming into their house and taking the food off their table. But Walter and Dunne aren’t at the table, they’re on the menu. This is still Gallus’ kingdom, but when will they feast on the gold they hunger for?


Radzy interviews WALTER.

The Austrian Anomaly must surely know that Gallus targets him as a “disrespectful” enemy. What is his response? No words from Walter, but his actions will surely speak volumes. When and where will Gallus get to feel his response?


Sam Stoker & Lewis Howley VS Fabian Aichner & Marcel Barthel!

The “Pretty Deadly” duo would love to embarrass the European Alliance with a victorious NXT UK debut, but the Italian Tank and German Commander look to gain momentum before participating in NXT USA’s Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic. Will this match turn ugly for the two debuting “tasty dishes”?

Teams sort out and Aichner starts against Howley. Aichner and Howley circle and tie up. Aichner shoves Howley down then dares him to get back up. Howley does, and ties up with Aichner again.

Aichner brings Stoker around, almost loses him, but gets him back up, for a powerslam! Fans do applaud that, and even want “One More Time!” Aichner likes how they think, and drags Stoker back up. Tag to Barthel, and Barthel hops up. Aichner powerbomb lifts, EuroUpper Bomb! Cover, the European Alliance wins!

Winners: Marcel Barthel & Fabian Aichner, Barthel pinning

The prideful Europeans continue to conquer team after team. Will they conquer both tag team divisions across NXT and NXT UK?


Nina Samuels VS Charlie Morgan!

The Rose Pink Devil looks to put on a show, and opening night features the Fearless Ace. Will the spotlight shine on the Nina Samuels Show? Or will she be upstaged by Charlie F’N Morgan?

The bell rings and the two tie up. Nina wrenches to a wristlock and brings Charlie to the mat. Charlie works her way up against the hold, rolls back and handsprings forward to reverse.

A successful opening night for the Nina Samuels Show! Will the spotlight shine on Nina all the way to the NXT UK Women’s Championship?


Pete Dunne addresses the media at the UK Performance Center.

Gallus makes a challenge to both him and Walter for a tag team match. Does Dunne feel he and Walter can coexist to defeat the Coffey Brothers? The Bruiserweight says it doesn’t really matter if they coexist, he’s proven himself against Gallus time and again. Whether Walter is there or not, Dunne looks to make the next time he faces Gallus the last time.

Johnny Saint makes it official!

There’s been enough talk for the NXT UK GM, he’ll have Gallus back it up in the ring. Joe & Mark Coffey will face Pete Dunne and Walter in a tag team match next week! Can the Bruiserweight and Ring General make it through?


Falls Count Anywhere: Jordan Devlin VS Travis Banks!

The Irish Ace and the Kiwi Buzzsaw have had a long-standing grudge from even before joining the NXT UK roster. That grudge only escalated as the weeks went by, and yet nothing has been settled. Tonight, with no rules but to win, what lengths will each man go to finally end this grudge in their favor?

Devlin ignores the fans and their taunting songs as he brings Banks up for an atomic backbreaker! Cover, TWO! Devlin keeps on Banks with a seated cobra clutch. Fans rally for Banks as he endures.

Winner: Jordan Devlin, by pinfall

The Irish Ace survives to defeat the Buzzsaw, but his body shows what it took to do so. Will Devlin move on from Banks and towards the title?



My Thoughts:

A great episode for NXT UK! The only real weak spot was Samuels VS Morgan, only because Charlie Morgan hasn’t quite gotten there yet. Samuels seems to be the leading lady for the midcard, because obviously Jinny is going to be the next challenger. Toni Storm had a good interview promo and Jinny’s simple appearance and scowl was effective enough. NXT UK might need some more women, but we know Kay Lee Ray and Jazzy Gabbert are on the way so they’ll freshen things up as the brand moves forward.

The Ligero VS Conners rematch was great, and it was a slight surprise for Ligero to win. His handshake offer was also surprising, but I can’t be sure it’ll lead to Conners turning Face. This should be an intriguing story going towards the next UK TakeOver. It’s also interesting to see them hype up the returning team-up of Wild Boar and Primate. I liked how those two looked in their previous tag match, I’m wondering if they’ll be pushed as a solid upper midcard team. Aichner & Barthel are themselves a solid team, and they had a really fun match with “Pretty Deadly” Stoker & Howley. Aichner & Barthel are also in action on NXT USA tonight in the Dusty Rhodes Classic, but they’re probably losing to Aleister Black & Ricochet, who have been booked just as strong.

Gallus calling out both Dunne and Walter is a logical move for them, and putting Dunne and Walter together as a possibly dysfunctional team is classic WWE. I like that Walter has yet to speak a word, including his interview tonight. Walter & Dunne VS The Coffey Brothers is going to be a great match whether there’s dysfunction or not, and can go a long way to giving us Walter VS Dunne at UK TakeOver. Devlin VS Banks was incredible, TakeOver worthy in itself. This was championship worthy, and again it’s too bad there’s no UK midcard title yet. Devlin winning is big, but again, Walter VS Dunne is first. Devlin will have to wait until after that if he’s getting another shot at the title, but he probably won’t even get that title unless Dunne retains.

My Score: 8.4/10

ROH World Six Man Tag Team Championships: Villain Enterprises VS Jay Lethal, Jeff Cobb & Rush!

No need to waste any time, we open this historic 400th episode with action! The Franchise Player is a former world champion, will he become an ROH Grand Slam Champion with the help of El Toro Blanco and the current World Television Champion? Or will Marty Scurll, Brody King and PCO clutch on tight to the last bit of gold they still have?

ROH returns from break as teams sort out. Fans chant for PCO as he starts against Lethal. The bell rings and we begin this golden opener!

Lethal circles with PCO for the first time in history, and PCO is fired up! Fans fire up with PCO but Scurll tells PCO to calm down and focus. Lethal turns PCO around but PCO headlocks.

Brody wants Cobb so Rush obliges! The two men collide shoulder to shoulder again and again and again! Cobb gets an edge but Brody dodges as things speed up. Cobb can leap! And he can dropkick! Fans fire up for Cobb and Kenny gets the wrong move, he thought Cobb just did a huricanrana. Cobb tags Lethal and they double whip Brody. Brody breaks through the line to crossbody them both!

Lethal stands and Brody runs but is dumped out. Lethal triangle dropkicks him down, then builds up speed. Scurll kicks Lethal from behind, but gets a dropkick for it! Lethal runs again, to DIVE onto Scurll! Then Lethal gets back in, runs, and DIVES on Brody, but is caught! Scurll hits Rush, then hurries to the apron, SUPERKICK to suplex! Kenny couldn’t tell that’s what happened, but he does like that Lethal took the damage. Villain Enterprises are fired up while we go to break.

ROH returns as Lethal throws body shots to deny a suplex. Lethal tries to suplex, but Brody is just too big. Fans rally behind Lethal but he can’t get Brody up. Brody suplexes Lethal up but Lethal slips out, cutter! Brody flounders and crawls as fans rally up. Lethal also crawls, hot tags to Scurll and Rush! Rush rallies on Villain Enterprises! He whips Brody but Brody reverses and corner clotheslines! Brody runs corner to corner but Rush follows for a splash! And then furious stomps!

Spin and “CHICKEN-” HEADBUTT! Rush tags to Cobb! Cobb rallies on Scurll and then German Suplexes Brody! PCO runs in but Cobb sends him into buckles, for a German Suplex of his own!

Winners: Villain Enterprises, PCO pinning; still ROH World Six Man Tag Team Champions

Kenny King says “I told you so” about Lethal not being some kind of Superman of Honor. Lethal is the one that takes the loss, will Kenny King be further vindicated when he faces off with Lethal? As for Villain Enterprises, is there any trio that can take those titles from them?


Flip Gordon speaks on his leg injury.

It was at ROH Honor Reigns Supreme, in a match with Hot Sauce Tracy Williams. All seemed same as always, but as Flip dropkick’d Tracy in the corner, his knee gave out. Flip feared the worst, and wanted to finish the match, but his springboard spear only made it worse. He could only take another step, so he had to call it there. Flip feared the worst, but the MRI gave him a time frame. What did he have to do to beat this? Physical therapy. Flip stuck to the schedule, and trusted his doctors. Now his knee is ready, and he is ready! The other ROH World Championship contenders fell to Lethal, but then Taven rose up to win. But tonight is the night! The Captain challenges the throne, will Flip’s return be one of the greatest in ROH history?


ROH shares what happened during break.

Jay Lethal was making his way up the steps to the stage at the same time Amy Rose was helping Kenny King to the back. Lethal didn’t make anything of it, but then Kenny attacked! Kenny used his walking stick, because obviously he wasn’t blind! ROH security pried Kenny off Lethal, and Lethal was gasping for air. Will Lethal get payback for the K I N G’s cowardly attack?


ROH World Championship: Matt Taven w/ TK O’Ryan VS Flip Gordon!

Finally, after weeks of waiting, we will see this match! The Kingdom’s ring leader finally got to be #GrandSlamTaven after a G1 Supercard Triple Threat ladder match, but it is also finally the Captain of Flip Army’s turn to challenge for this title. Will Flip show Taven just how he earned this match when he earns the win?

Though, once again conspicuous by his absence, Vinnie Marseglia isn’t following Taven to the ring. That’s mostly because only TK has his corner man license, as is required now in Pennsylvania. Even so, will the Horror King again appear to help Taven retain?

The introductions are made, and we begin this golden main event, after the break!

ROH returns as the referee raises the belt. Taven offers the Code of Honor, surprisingly, and Flip takes it. The fans duel as the two back off and the bell rings. Flip and Taven circle and Flip avoids Taven getting his bad leg. Taven smirks but gets a shotgun dropkick! Flip throws forearms on Taven then whips corner to corner. Flip runs in but is put on the apron. He still kicks Taven back, then slingshots for a monkey flip! Taven crawls to a corner and Flip runs, but Taven puts him on the top rope, to shove him off! TK lurks but Flip stares him down. Flip shoulders into Taven then slingshot sunset flips. Taven rolls through but Flip ducks Just the Tip to schoolboy Taven out of the ring!

Fans rally up both ways while TK coaches Taven up. Flip builds speed and DIVES! Direct hit sends Taven into railing! But Flip is checking his leg. He may not be 100% like he thought. TK runs at him with the bat! Flip jumps over the swing, then mule kicks the Sassy Wild Horse down! But Taven blasts Flip off the apron and into barriers! Flip hits so hard, the cover comes off! Taven doesn’t care that fans boo, he fetches Flip from the wreckage. Taven scoops and slams Flip on the cover! The Kingdom fans cheer but Flip’s fans boo as Taven throws Flip into a post! Taven mockingly says, “He can fly!” and mockingly applauds while refreshing the count. He puts Flip back in the ring and Flip flounders to a corner.

Taven takes a moment to trash talk the Flip fans, then runs corner to corner to hit Flip with a forearm smash. Taven whips Flip but Flip reverses. Flip runs in but Taven goes up and over. Things speed up, Flip leaps then ducks to mule kick and snapmare. Flip runs to Penalty Kick and standing moonsault! Cover, TWO! Taven gets out but Flip keeps focus. Flip slingshots but Taven gets back in the ring. The bad knee stops Flip and Taven kicks him off the apron! Flip crashes down and fans rally as Taven builds speed. Taven misses the dropkick to get a SUPERKICK! Flip fires up and runs in, but gets hip tossed into barriers and a chair! Flip writhes and clutches his back while we go to break.

ROH returns again as Taven stalks Flip in the ring. Taven slams the knee into the mat while fans rally both ways. Taven brings Flip around to elbow the knee. He puts Flip’s leg in a toehold and punches the knee, then stands to drop another elbow. Taven returns to the hold but Flip elbows him away. Flip stands and CHOPS Taven at the ropes. Flip forearms Taven, too, then enziguris! Taven flounders to the corner and Flip fires himself up. Flip stands but walks into a kick from Taven. Taven looms over Flip before he drags him up by the bad leg. He gives the bad leg a dragon screw! Then a leg yank! Flip slumps out of the ring and Taven distracts the ref so that TK can stomp Flip out!

Flip reverses but Taven rolls under to enziguri and back suplex to bomb! Cover, TWO! Right to a Half Crab! Flip endures and fans duel. Flip crawls and gets the ropebreak! But Taven doesn’t let go, he just drags Flip away! The referee reprimands him so Taven lets up on the Crab. Flip kicks Taven with his good leg! Taven comes back but gets another kick. Flip stands but gets a BOOT from Taven!

Taven drags Flip up but Flip slips out of Moonlight Drive! Flip runs, springboards to SPEAR! But Flip can’t make a cover, he’s too tired. Fans rally up both ways as the standing count begins. The count hits 5 before either man sits up. Taven is up first at 7 but Flip follows as he feeds off fan energy. Flip forearms but Taven responds, and they go back and forth. Flip gets an edge but Taven kicks the bad leg. Taven adds forearms and another kick, but Flip responds with a knee! Flip brings Taven in but Taven pushes him off. Taven runs in but Flip goes up and over and blocks the boot! Flip pries Taven off the ropes, to inverted Alabama Slam him into buckles! Taven flounders up into Flip’s modified neckbreaker! Cover, TWO!! Flip’s shocked while we go to one last break.

ROH returns once more as fans declare “This is Awesome!” Flip climbs up top but Taven stops him with a haymaker! Taven climbs up to join Flip but Flip hits back. They brawl and Taven falls.

Winner: Matt Taven, by pinfall; still ROH World Champion

Vinnie didn’t even need to appear, his balloons of doom were distraction enough! But Vinnie still appears to celebrate with his king. Will #GrandSlamTaven ever be stopped with his Kingdom always around?



My Thoughts:

A pretty great 400th episode for ROH. We only had two matches and that’s all we really needed given how great the matches were. Lethal-Cobb-Rush was definitely an odd team going into this, though star-studded as it is, but it was pretty clear they weren’t going to win. Villain Enterprises is a great trio because each member is great. It really will take a big name trio to take those titles from them. I’m still thinking The Kingdom comes back around to challenge for those belts, and can tie into another world title shot for Scurll. Kenny King did his blind act great on commentary, because for one, he obviously was never blind so it’s just him being a naturally funny guy. And it was a good move for him to “reveal” he wasn’t blind and then attack Lethal. This gets some great heat for their second time around.

Clearly Flip Gordon is a star in ROH now, but sadly not big enough of a star to overcome the odds. Commentary did a good job selling how Taven didn’t need to do this given how his win at G1 Supercard was all him. But this does heap Heel heat back on him, even with Philly weirdly having fans who like The Kingdom. This could be another way for Scurll and Villain Enterprises to be the team that takes that belt off Taven, as PCO and Brody King will be there to counter TK and Vinnie. Flip himself will surely be a champion one day, he just has to wait a little bit longer.

My Score: 8.3/10

Stardom Cinderella Tournament 2019 Result & Review: Final Part (4/29/2019)

Now we get to find out who wears the pretty dress! Stardom Cinderella tournament time! 



Now we get to find out who wears the pretty dress! Stardom Cinderella tournament time!

I know I’m a little late to the party for the second part of the tournament but we’re here now and I wanna get to it.

So far, we have Arisa advancing to the semi-finals due to Kagetsu and Tam ending in a tie, meaning we have about six matches to cover on this part. But don’t worry, I’ll be adding a surprise match at the end of this show to cover to get the ball rolling.

Who will win the tournament?

Let’s find out as we…dive right in.

Cinderella Tournament 2019 Quarter Final Match
Hazuki vs. Starlight Kid

Review: It’s time to start the second round of the tournament as we have Hazuki taking on Starlight Kid. Hazuki was able to advance by defeating Bea Priestley and Starlight advanced by defeating Natsu Sumire. The winner of this match will fight the winner of the next match. These two are no strangers to each other and Starlight is going to make sure she wins this time around. Who will advance?

Starlight wasted no time as she would deliver a Dropkick to Hazuki soon as the bell rang and would hit a couple more on her, she’s getting fierce with this. Starlight got her off the corner to hit a Moonsault as Hazuki kicked out at two. Starlight picked her up as Hazuki hits a Codebreaker to stop her full-out assault. Hazuki ran to the top rope as Starlight was able to Dropkick her off onto the apron. Starlight tried to finish her off as Hazuki punched her in the face and went for a springboard as Starlight pushed her off to eliminate her in less than two minutes! Wow, talk about an upset. Not a terrible match but it’s really short and everything was executed really well too, so I liked it for what it was actually. Good job, ladies.

Cinderella Tournament 2019 Quarter Final Match
Konami vs. AZM

Review: Our next match is AZM taking on Konami. Konami had an upset victory when she eliminated Momo Watanabe in the first round and AZM won by eliminating Rebel Kel. AZM is going to have a tough opponent ahead of her if she’s going to want to advance and fight her rival, Starlight. Will Konami keep the ball rolling by beating another Queen’s Quest member or will AZM get the upset win?

AZM really is proving that she can hang with some of the best here in Stardom away from the lower division. My only takeaway here for this match is not that it was short since it’s expected for this tournament but there were some sloppy spots for a good amount of it, unfortunately. Aside from the sloppy sequences here and there, they did still have some good performances. Konami looked like she was gonna go for a Leglock but AZM would hold onto her leg to make her fall back for a pinfall but Konami would kick out at two. Konami would eventually apply the Triangle Lancer as she did prove it is in fact 100% as AZM tapped out, leaving Konami to advance against Starlight Kid.

Cinderella Tournament 2019 Quarter Final Match
Hana Kimura vs. Natsuko Tora

Review: Our final quarterfinal match is up next as we have Hana Kimura taking on Natsuko Tora. Natsuko was able to defeat her former JAN partner, Jungly Kyona to advance with a brand new look and attitude. Hana defeated Andras Miyagi to advance and is looking to bring more momentum to the Tokyo Cyber Squad. Which one of these two will advance to fight Arisa Hoshiki?

There wasn’t a whole lot to see with Natsuko here since it looked like we saw most of that with her match against Jungle rather than her match with Hana right here. We had the match outside of the arena for a little bit but they didn’t go over the top rope, so they were able to do as much as Hana threw her around for a little bit before taking her back into the ring. Natsuko does have a really nice Spear, so I’ll give her points for that but she failed to put Hana away with something like that. The match was exactly seven minutes and Hana would have Natsuko over by the ropes so she can go for a kick as Hana’s leg was over the rope, leaving Natsuko an opening to flip her over and hits her with the Oedo Tai sign to eliminate her as Natsuko advances to the semi-finals!

Cinderella Tournament 2019 Semi-Final Match
Arisa Hoshiki vs. Natsuko Tora

Review: It’s now time for the semi-finals as Natsuko Tora is now going to fight Arisa Hoshiki. Natsuko going back to back could be a little bit of trouble for her if she’s not too worn out with Arisa being fresh due to advancing further after the first round. The winner will advance to the finals but which one of them will go forward?

Wow, the crowd was actually split even for this one except for that annoying cunt in the audience, I forgot all about him. Natsuko had most of the control in this match and even worked on Arisa’s leg a bit to make sure she would be too weak to even attempt the Brazilian Kick in the match. This one was a much better match compared to anything in the quarterfinals so that at least gave me something. Arisa had a little bit of momentum when she hits a Springboard Diving Knee for a two count and went to pick her up as Natsuko would hit a Spear. Natsuko went to the top rope to hit a Splash as Arisa kicked out at two and would get her down again to hit a Diving Leg Drop as Arisa moved out of the way this time. Arisa would lift her up for a Powerslam and would go to the ropes to hit a Rounding Splash for the win as Arisa is now set for the finals!

Cinderella Tournament 2019 Semi-Final Match
Konami vs. Starlight Kid

Review: Our next match in the semi-finals is between Konami and Starlight Kid. Starlight was able to get two big wins under her belt in the tournament when she defeated both Natsu Sumire and Hazuki. Konami has one more win to go before she can advance to fight Arisa. Who will meet Arisa in the finals?

Instead of attacking Konami head on as she did with Hazuki, Starlight would try a different approach when she would try to get that quick pin in to throw Konami off guard and it looked like she had her during the crucifix pin but Konami barely kicked out at two. Konami knows she would need to finish hero ff quick as she attempted the Triangle Lancer but Starlight would roll her up for another two count. Starlight hits a Swinging Neckbreaker for a two count and would position Konami to hit a Moonsault but Konami rolled out of the way and applied the Triangle Lancer to make Starlight tap out in less than three minutes. Konami is officially in the final round as she now has to fight Arisa Hoshiki.

Cinderella Tournament 2019 Final Match
Konami vs. Arisa Hoshiki

Review: It’s now time for the final round as we have Konami from Tokyo Cyber Squad taking on Arisa Hoshiki from STARS. These two women made it this far in the tournament when most people probably didn’t expect them to win, but here we are. The winner of this match will get a dress to wear and able to request any match they want. Which one will win? Who wears a pretty dress?

I’m now convinced that Konami was officially held back and was able to shine a lot more as a Tokyo Cyber Squad member than she has at Queen’s Quest. Konami’s personality would flesh out more as she just wanted to make Arisa suffer when she would be going after her leg in the match since it was still weak from Arisa’s previous matches. Both of them meshed really well together in the ring and gave us a really good match. Also to that annoying fan again, please shut up and don’t come back. A lot of close calls in the match when Arisa would do her Powerslam combo with a Rounding Splash and the two times that she did hit it, Konami actually kicked out of it, leaving Arisa a little bit speechless. Konami was able to attempt the Triangle Lancer to try and make her tap out before Arisa grabbed the ropes to make her break the hold. Arisa was finally able to hit her Brazillian Kick despite her bad leg and pinned Konami for the victory to win the Cinderella Tournament. Can’t believe my dark horse won the whole thing.

Arisa was able to win the Cinderella Tournament as she now gets to wear the dress they had prepared for her. I’m sure glad they know their sizes before making them. Anyway, this is a big win for Arisa as she now calls out Momo Watanabe to the ring. Arisa declared that she will be fighting Momo for the Wonder of Stardom Championship so she could finally get her one-on-one match that Momo has been denying her for quite a while. The match is made official as it will take place on the May 16th show. I’m excited to see this match finally happen and it’s one you don’t wanna miss.

World of Stardom Title Match
Kagetsu (c) vs. Bea Priestley

Review: Now that the Cinderella Tournament is over, let’s fast forward just a little bit to the May 4th show so we can get a little bit caught up. Plus, this was the only match that caught my interest and is pretty important as it’s for the World of Stardom Championship. The match took place at the Queen’s Quest Produced show as Kagetsu defends her title against a member of Queen’s Quest, Bea Priestley. Bea went from losing in the first round of the tournament to getting a match for the big red belt, but I’m game to see what happens and it looks like Kagetsu needs another defense under her belt. Good because her last one left little to the imagination and Bea has improved recently. Will Kagetsu retain or does Bea somehow win?

One, Bea looks great in her new attire and two, this might be the best match that I’ve seen our of her along with Kagetsu’s best match in months. This match was nicely paced from beginning to end here with the two of them executing everything they did in the ring almost flawlessly and had nice sequences during the match. I loved when Bea jumped to the top rope and Kagetsu followed right after when she jumped to the second rope to Dropkick her on the way down, nicely done. Kagetsu shows how good of a worker she is if Stardom wasn’t too busy giving her scraps most of the time and Bea needed this match more to show what she actually can do in a high caliber match like this one and the progression she made in the past year as you can see for yourself.

Bea hits a beautiful Regalplex for a two count and wouldn’t stop there as she hits a Curb-Stomp as our Prime Minister kicked out again, but Bea quickly applied for the Rings of Saturn before Kagetsu had the ropes. Our Prime Minister is up to her old tricks as she pushed Bea into the referee to spray green mist into her eyes before she would hit the Michinoku Driver and the Oedo Coaster as it looks like this could be it, but Bea would somehow kick out at two, leaving the fans shocked along with Kagetsu. Kagetsu would get back to the top rope to try and hit another one but Bea would stop her this time and hits a kick to her tucked head, shades of her boyfriend, Will Ospreay and had her up on her shoulders to hit the Japanese Ocean Cyclone Suplex and Bea pins Kagetsu to win the championship!

Well…if you’re surprised, then don’t feel bad because I am just as surprised as you are right now. This was something I didn’t expect to see and I’m not too sure how I feel about it right now. Sure, Bea has improved a lot and she delivered a great match against Kagetsu but I’m just not sure if she’s considered red belt material. The World of Stardom Championship has taken a bit of a back burner ever since Toni Storm won it when Mayu Iwatani was injured but Kagetsu did try her best to help elevate it despite Momo taking most of the spotlight due to beating Io Shirai last year. Despite my feelings on the matter, congratulations to Bea on winning and I hope she actually does well with the title. If Bea can perform like how she did more often, she’ll be okay. Congratulations, Bea and I wish you luck.

Rating: Bruce Prichard and a half


Overall: I thought the second half of the tournament was well done and the finals were much better than last year, but we still had plenty of good matches along with the surprise title match I added for after the tournament. May 16th show is shaping up to be a good one.

Favorite Match: Kagetsu vs. Bea Priestley

Least Favorite Match: Konami vs. AZM

Score: 8/10
