Quebrada Pro Wrestling, Puroresu, & Mixed Martial Arts Reviews by Mike Lorefice

OZ Academy #8 11/24/02
taped 11/4/02 Tokyo Zepp Tokyo

KAORU & Sakura Hirota vs. Aja Kong & Carlos Amano 12:23 of 13:57. Amano did some wrestling early, but with Hirota it quickly degenerated into clowning. KAORU didn't want to tag Hirota, so Hirota pulled a wallet out of her ass and tried to pay KAORU to let her come in. KAORU eventually accepted, hiding the money in her breasts. KAORU did little beyond her table spots. Police was ref, so he was doing the quick count/slow count routine. Eventually Hirota got pissed at KAORU for charging her for tags, so she saved Amano, prompting KAORU to attack her. Kong & Amano then double teamed KAORU, leading to Carlos pinning her. 1/2*

Free Weapon Match: Chikayo Nagashima vs. Sugar Sato 16:10 of 19:48. The weapons didn't add much, perhaps even detracted as the match was more corny than anything else. They tried to build to knocking each other off the stage, but that wound up making it more contrived because Sato was just standing there at the edge waiting while Nagashima tried to get anyone to care whether Sato took the plunge. Nagashima put Sato in a big mesh sack and tied her to the ropes then did some moves with Sato “trapped”. *1/4

Mayumi Ozaki & Manami Toyota vs. Toshiyo Yamada & Ran Yu-Yu 16:51 of 17:36 Not a major effort, but a good match with Ran logging a lot of ring time and very sharp against both Ozaki & Toyota. Ozaki was good, but Ran was clearly the best worker in the match. Ozaki & Toyota got into an argument when they collided charging at Ran. Ozaki then urakened her own partner, but Ran was in bad enough shape she was quickly able to finish her off on her own. ***

Mayumi Ozaki & Devil Masami & Dynamite Kansai & Carlos Amano & Ran Yu-Yu vs. Chigusa Nagayo & Meiko Satomura & Chikayo Nagashima & Sugar Sato & Toshie Uematsu 25:14 Energetic match. They kept everyone involved with quick tags and regular double teams. There were plenty of nice spots, but they didn't kill all the finishers like they usually do in GAEA, and Nagayo was well hidden. Nagashima was the best worker, particularly shining with Ozaki & Amano. ***1/4
