Jd' 2/24/01

Sumie Sakai vs. Miwa Maruyama. This astress didn't seem to bad, but the match ended abruptly when she hurt her wrist landing improperly on a missile kick. At least Maruyama showed some athleticism. 1:49 shown

Sumie Sakai vs. Ranmaru. Exciting match even if a bit sloppy. 3:31 shown

Sumie Sakai vs. Hiroyo Muto. Sakai was tiring by this point. Muto nearly beat her with her nadare shiki no Russian leg sweep. This was the one match in the series that was probably better unedited because it was a slower, more Muto style match. Some nice sequences, but Muto made it clumsy at times. 2:52 shown

Kickboxing: Ayano Omori vs. Emi Tojo. Tojo was very aggressive in round one, throwing the majority of the blows. Omori almost never threw a punch in this round, and the few she threw weren't good. The second round was totally different though, Omori started throwing a bunch of punches and it was working well even though she has little technique. Omori won via TKO because Tojo got dizzy or woozy from taking all these punches.

5 Min Amaresu Sparring: Ayano Omori vs. Chiaki Kashida. Kind of like a real fake fight. Very dull unless you are really into amateur wrestling.

ID4 vs. Super Terrors: Megumi Yabushita & The Bloody vs. Drake Morimatsu & Kurohime. Bloody had a bad left knee, which the opposition worked over. The match was structured well until the end, which was a quick comeback win after a whole match of getting pretty much dominated. Kurohime was a pleasant surprise. She was pretty much on the level here. She does a "double uraken," which is a two handed backfist. It was decent, which is good for a match where Yabushita & Bloody didn't get much offense in. 12:39 shown

TWF Tag Senshukenjiai: Kamen Tenshi Rosetta & Kamen Tenshi Freia vs. SAYA & KAZUKI. Not good at all. Contrived and not well worked. Rosetta was the only one that showed anything. 6:49 shown

Jd' 3/3/01

SAYA & KAZUKI vs. Ranmaru & Tsukimaru. A little better than the tag title match, but still lousy. SAYA & KAZUKI showed less than nothing again. 3:08 shown

Athtress tryouts. Physical training (running, kicking, sit ups, and some of the worst pushups you'll ever see), modeling in bathing suits, dancing (Ranmaru shows them some rhythm), and some of the worst acting this side of Stephane McMahon.

METAL GARAGE MATCH: Fang Suzuki vs. Sachie Abe 21:21. Not exactly the two most skilled wrestlers in the world, but they did a good job of using the cage to their advantage. A few of the gimmick spots came off as contrived early on, but for the most part they added a lot to the match and helped make up for the liabilities of the performers. They wrestled in a hell in the cell style roofed cage except it had an opening so they could climb up to the top. The match could end in by pinfall and the like or by escape, but there was no DQ so weapons were allowed in the cage (they used a crutch, chair, and especially a ladder) and Tommy Ran was just there to declare a winner. Fang was on offense almost the entire match. The weapons helped make up for her lack of moves, but still she relied on the lariat more than Choshu at his worst. We must have seen the same exact near fall a half dozen times. Abe was like a combination of bad Kanemoto and KAORU. She supposedly did great selling, but what I saw was someone who made super fast comebacks with flying moves every time she went on offense, so how can this be considered good selling? She has added some new moves to make her offense slightly potent, but her execution still isn't good, so now she sloppily performs better and more difficult moves. What I liked about the match was that it was different. Even if it was kind of a WWF ripoff, they did some new and interesting things with the gimmicks. Abe's athleticism was countered when she tried a boomerang headbutt but ate a chair shot and when Fang caught her Frankensteiner and threw her into the cage. Abe used the ladder to grab the roof of the cage and get above Fang then let go for a new version of the diving footstomp. When they got to the top, Fang used moves such as the Ace crusher and Romero special. The finish was memorable for the stunt, and would have been truly awesome if it didn't exemplify all that was wrong with the match. Fang gave Abe an STO into the roof of the cage then tried to climb down. Abe, who has been getting killed for 6/7th of a match approaching 21 minutes, of course is still able to immediately trip Fang up. Fang got away from her and started climbing down the cage, and was so far down that her hands are still holding the top of the cage when Abe decides in "desperation" that there's "no way" she can stop her. She then gets her courage up while Fang is climbing down and does a suicide dive off the top of the cage to the floor, of course with a half dozen wrestlers conveniently set up to catch her, for the win! It was good in theory, but just not well done because Abe didn't sell long enough that the dive was the only way she could possibly win. Fang just grinned, basically tipping her cap to Abe because Sachie wanted the win more than she did. Fang did a good job of carrying the match, but it was no where near her weapon match with Bloody last year because Abe is hardly Bloody. For all it's flaws with execution, selling, comebacks, and repetitivity (they aren't meant to work this long, but a 12 minute match wouldn't have helped Abe nearly as much), it was enjoyable as something different and made Abe seem sort of special because she showed some real guts in getting battered and bloodied all night then finally risking it all for the victory. **3/4

Jd' 5/15/01

12/10/00 Tokyo Differ Ariake: Sumie Sakai vs. Fang Suzuki 12:40 of 19:54. Both women were at the top of their game, and this was probably the best Jd' match of 2000. It's what the Fang vs. Abe matches should have been. I suppose that's somewhat unfair to Fang though because Sakai is better than Abe in every aspect of wrestling. She's fiery, she throws some explosive suplexes, and she believes in her flying even though it's not always perfect. Anyway, the point is they did several things to allow the match to reach the level it did. There was a nice contrast of styles, countering each other well and fluidly, but Sakai also wasn't afraid to brawl when she had to. She suplexed Fang on a pile of chairs a few times because the chance to do damage in Fang's style was there, and this made more sense than applying a submission on the ramp, helping to even things up after Fang nodowa'd her off the ramp onto a table. It was mainly an offense oriented match, but they made these moves meaningful, and thus the match dramatic. They put over the toll of the match well, yet there was still a ton of action. Everything was well executed too. The STO was the most notable move because Sakai used Fang's move on her and also came up with a counter for it where she landed on her feet. ***3/4 range

3/18/01 Tokyo QOR & AWF Sekai Joshi Senshuken: Megumi Yabushita vs. Sumie Sakai 18:53. The two judo practicioners are going in different directions with Sakai working on her flying and Yabushita concentrating on her submissions as she's in training for ReMix. The are long time friends with great chemistry though, and delivered a nice mix of flying and submission wrestling. Sakai tended to fly early and late with Yabushita controlling the middle portion, which was very technical, but they did a nice job of mixing the two styles with Yabushita turning Sakai's diving body attack into a wakigatame and rolling Sakai off the top rope into a flying arm bar. Though they counter each other beautifully, they don't structure the match that well. In the middle they relied too heavily on coming close to applying submissions, while toward the end it was mainly highspots with a few submission attempts thrown in. It wasn't as focused as the previous Sakai vs. Fang match, and the selling certainly wasn't as good. The work was strong though, and it was a very even match. In the end, it was yet another good match from these two. It's just that at this point I'm looking for them to take it to the next level, so my patience for a disjointed match is a bit less. Sakai won the double title. ***1/4

3 Way Battle: Chitose Yamamoto vs. Chiaki Nishi vs. Obatchi Iizuka. What a pitiful match. It was so deliberate and the execution sucked. Nishi can't even run properly, much less wrestle. 4:51 shown. DUD

Ayano Omori vs. Teruko Kagawa. Kagawa threw a good dropkick and they showed a few flashes of confidence, but that's about it. 1/2*

TWF Sekai Tag Senshukenjiai: Kamen Tenshin Rosetta & Kamen Tenshi Freia vs. The Bloody & Fang Suzuki. Bloody & Fang were very good here and made the match. They controlled after the first few minutes, using the Kamen Tenshi's flying as a change of pace from their brawling offense. The highlight was Bloody putting a ladder on the ramp and doing the Oz flip off of it to put both oppoents through a table. Bloody & Fang won the titles. **3/4

3/18/01 Tokyo QOR & AWF Sekai Joshi Senshukenjiai: Megumi Yabushita vs. Sumie Sakai. The first half was very technical. They relied too havey on coming close to applying the submission spots.

The work was strong and it was a very even match. Basically it was good like all their matches, but at this point I'm looking for them to take it to the next level so my patience for a disjointed match is going to be a bit less.

-1 1/2hr. Q=Near Perfect 1st Gen.

4/29/01 Tokyo Korakuen Hall QOR & AWF Sekai Joshi Senshuken Jiai: The Bloody vs. Sumie Sakai. Just an exhibition of spots, but at least they were impressive. The best of which was Bloody German suplexing Sakai off the 2nd onto her head. Lots of fighting on the outside with both women finding elevated areas to do their favorite flying move off. Sakai bled. Silly finish saw 5 fisherman busters in the last minute with Bloody beating Sakai with her own move. ***

5/6/01 Tokyo Differ Ariake TWF Sekai Tag Senshukenjiai: Kamen Tenshin Rosetta & Kamen Tenshi Freia vs.The Bloody & Fang Suzuki. Bloody & Fang were very good here and made the match.

11/26/00 Tokyo Differ Ariake QOR Shodai Oza Kettei Tournament Kesshosen: The Bloody vs. Megumi Yabushita. More mat oriented due to Yabushita. Unfortunately, Bloody is not skilled in this area and could do little more than sell the submissions. When they weren't on the mat, which was about half the match, the offense was excellent. All the counters and avoidals they implement adds so much to their already impressive moves. These moves redeemed the match, which wasn't well thought out and relied on a contrived double KO punch where both were "sent flying off the ramp". ***

3/18/01 Tokyo Korakuen Hall The Bloody's BOUT 2: The Bloody vs. Aja Kong. Aja brings a much different style than Bloody's peers. This was less exciting and didn't have as sharply worked sequences, but more structured and dramatic with better selling. Something of a big vs. small match, but Aja actually suppressed her ego and gave Bloody respect. I believed Bloody could win this match even though in the back of my mind I knew it wasn't happening. On the short side, but it was pretty even and with this matchup that's what counts. ***1/4

Mizuho Ishikawa vs. Ayano Omori. Mercifully, it only lasted 41 seconds.

LSD 2000 2 HOUR MATCH Part 1 (about 32 minutes shown):

The Bloody vs. Sachie Abe 10:00. They tried hard, but Abe was exposing her weaknesses rather than Bloody doing anything to hide them. Abe was too slow doing her counters and even moves, particularly her overused magistral, to hang with Bloody. She made sequences deliberate, even awkward.

Takako Inoue vs. Obatchi Iizuka 1:38. They kept it short and simple, which is a good idea for them.

Takako Inoue vs. Sumie Sakai 10:00. Sakai made it a decent energized segment. Her suplexes look much better against smaller opponents though, and Takako isn't exactly large. Sakai's punches were bad, but the high spots looked pretty good, and it was overall a mild success with Sakai getting the draw.

Chitose Yamamoto vs. Kaori Yoneyama 4:54. A pleasant surprise. These women have some athleticism and did a fast-paced segment. The action wasn't exactly what you'd call good, especially with Yoneyama's sloppiness, but it was plentiful and may have been the least contrived segment so far. Yoneyama dominated, but Yamamoto finally hit a couple moves to score the upset.

Chitose Yamamoto vs. KAZUKI 2:11. Better than expected. Good moves and adequate work.

KAZUKI vs. Drake Morimatsu 3:56. They tried to wrestle a more athletic style that doesn't suit their makeup. It was much better when they went to their power moves. Still, for this type of match, it felt long and I was ready for KAZUKI to call it a night as soon as possible. The Drakebomb is set up like a DVB, but finishes with the opponent landing on their back between her legs like a falcon arrow.

Drake Morimatsu vs. Yuki Miyazaki 9:19. Passable counter-laden action. Miyazaki does a pretty good job here, and the chemistry is decent.

Yuki Miyazaki vs. The Bloody 6:20. Best segment. Miyazaki has the quickness, athleticism, and moves to challenge Bloody. The communication and timing were somewhat lacking though, but there's definitely a lot to build off here for a singles match.

The Bloody vs Ranmaru 3:00. Good moves, but short and Ranmuru is too hit and miss with her flying.

Athtress Point Match: Teruko Kagawa & Keiko Furuta vs. Emi Tojo & Chiaki Kashida. Too much RVD flipping and rolling. At least he's athletic and smooth, this was slow and incredibly deliberate. Incredibly fake looking match that couldn't end quick enough. 1/2*

LSD 2000 2 HOUR MATCH Part 2: (about 20 minutes shown)

Fang Suzuki vs. Haruka Matsuo 10:00. Shockingly entertaining little match due to them working a nice basic scenario the fans could get into. Fang squashed Matsuo and was ready for the quick win, when some other Athtresses interfered, giving Matsuo the opportunity to get a few near falls with basic pinning moves that they put over for maximum drama. Fang came back and you figured that was it, but Matsuo showed a lot of heart, and surprised everyone by withstanding a few chokeslams to eke out the draw.

Ariya (Aya Koyama) vs. Sachie Abe 1:45. Passable brief segment

Ariya vs. MARU 5:27. Lousy filler. Even the finisher was poor.

MARU vs. The Bloody 0:08. The entire match consisted of Bloody coming in and applying her Bloody EX.

The Bloody vs Hiroyo Muto 1:06. Had some potential, but they didn't give it the time.

The Bloody vs. Kyoko Inoue 3:45. Annoying match where Kyoko played the size card. Kyoko took the Super Terrors out with lariats early, and when they tried to bail Bloody out later, Bloody she still lost within 30 seconds. The work was good, but I didn't like Kyoko's attitude here, nor the match that resulted from it.

Kyoko Inoue vs. Chiaki Nishi 2:27. Comedy match where inept little Nishi was afraid of Kyoko then came at her with the weakest forearms ever and distracted Kyoko so she could hit some flying moves that Kyoko laughed off. I can't blame Kyoko here, as Nishi was a total joke of an opponent who had no business being in the right with her.

Kyoko Inoue vs. Fang Suzuki 7:40. Super Terrors got their revenge here. Fang threw powder in Kyoko's eyes to start and the heels ganged up on Kyoko on the outside, handcuffing her to a table so Fang could get a count out win.

Fang Suzuki vs Sumie Sakai 4:05. Should have been one of the better matchups, but they edited it down to just the finish.

Fang Suzuki vs Takako Inoue 2:05. Takako came in all fired up, but they ultimately wound up stalling away the last few minutes for a disappointing anti-climax. Terrors broke up Takako's pin, so Kyoko cleaned house. Fang tried to use a chain so Takako to her stun gun, and Fang wisely bailed. By the time Takako put her stun gun down so Fang would agree to reenter, the match was essentially over.

10/28/01

Sumie Sakai & Obatchi Iizuka vs. Ranmaru & Komina Ichikawa. Sakai vs. Maru was pretty good, but it was hard to care with all the stupidity in between. Ichikawa was doing a form of voodoo or something. Totally retarded. 10:00 shown

Catch the Weapon Pail vs. Bat: Drake Morimatsu vs. KAZUKI. Lots of spots, but they aren't the most coordinated wrestlers. Still, the wrestling was decent until Drake got the bat. The moves had impact but were deliberately set up, while the bat strikes were so phony. The pail was basically a waste basket. Drake did a shining wizard off it that was kind of cool for a shining wizard. Adequate. 9:57 shown

The Bloody & Fang Suzuki & Sachie Abe vs Hiromi Yagi & Hiroyo Muto & Ariya 15:17. An okay albeit disjointed match that had good Bloody vs. Yagi segments. The others tended to do their own thing, and there were definitely conflicting ideas. No direction and little flow, but Bloody, Fang, and Yagi executed well. Muto was okay, but not on top of her game. Ariya looked bad when she tried something, although one of her spinning high kicks was nice. Abe didn't try much "difficult" since she's a heel, which in her case is a good thing. The moves were much more impressive than how they were used. **

11/4/01

Athtress Point Match: Chiaki Kashida & Keiko Furuta vs. Mizuho Ishikawa & Teruko Kagawa. They tried, but that doesn't make up for really deliberate wrestling with no flow, bad timing, and tons of screw ups. The execution was even bad when they "got it right." DUD

Fang Suzuki & KAZUKI & MARU vs. Sumie Sakai & Obatchi Iizuka & Chiaki Nishi. Even against each other, Sakai & Fang weren't at their best. It looked great compared to the athtresses, but there were still a lot of problems and general disorganization. Sakai was the only one that showed anything, and it was more good moves than her usual good work. *

AWF & QOR Double Title Match: The Bloody vs Hiromi Yagi 15:20. An excellent display of quickness and flexibility. The match was a bit disappointing, although still quite good, because Yagi didn't have enough offense to be a real threat and they didn't build up their moves and counters like they are capable of. Yagi got off to a good start doing her avalanche style ipponzeoi to the floor and following with a plancha, but then the Super Terrors got involved and Bloody did a lot of damage brawling in the back. Yagi didn't come back and get some mat wrestling in until after the 10 minute mark. She showed a few super transitions, but like I said they could have done a lot more to make it dramatic rather than simply well worked back and forth countering. Their styles are very different and they didn't quite converge. Bloody lacks a mat game, so Yagi relied more on her athleticism, using flashy counters into submission attempts then getting back up. There were moments of sheer brillance where their athleticism was so impressive it didn't really matter. They did some really nice counters to the big moves, and had fun matching each other, for instance Bloody did a bridge into a standing position kickout right after Yagi used one on her. ***1/2

Michael Smith: This was a good match, but pretty basic looking. Sakai was the only standout, and really the only one who looked like she knew what she was doing. The others didn't look lost, but they also didn't look anywhere close to being able to dictate or carry a match. Abe has always been one of my favorites, but unlike when I kept pushing to people how good Bloody was going to be, based on this match Sachie hasn't taken those giant steps foward to becoming a very good worker like Bloody did when she lost the mask & Phoenix moniker. **

AWF & QOR 3 Way LSD555 Dance: The Bloody vs. Fang Suzuki vs. Sumie Sakai 9:10. I'm not a huge fan of either short matches or 3 way matches, but this was a good example of both. They were able to work at the level they do in their singles matches, but having 2 opponents and a brief match time allowed them to maximize their good material as well as be creative. The downside of the 3 way is there's always too much time where one wrestler is simply on the sidelines, but they did a good job of figuring out how to involve everyone when they were fresh so they could justify someone laying around later, and they did some spots they don't usually do as well as ones they can't do such as Fang using her STO on both opponents at once. The timing and chemistry were really quite good here, and everyone showed what makes them a good wrestler. ***
