Megumi Yabushita vs. Sumie Sakai
MS: It's always a pleasure to watch these two wrestle because of how fluid and smooth their matwork is. Sakai was particularly impressive here and of course Yabushita was more than able to hold up her end of the match as well. Generally speaking I'm not a big fan of MMA/shoot-style wrestling, but Megumi and Sumie are about as good as it gets when it comes to encorporating those genres into a "normal" wrestling match and as a result I always enjoy watching their work. Plus they mix in enough highspots and other moves to keep the flow going and never go into "resthold" territory. ***1/4
Chiaki Nishi vs. Chitose Yamamoto. The only thing Nishi does well is a snapmare, which she does so much you get sick of it. No glaring errors, but dull inept wrestling. 8:36. DUD
MARU vs. Kaori Yoneyama. Yoneyama carried this, but MARU offered nothing, so it was just Yoneyama doing her moves for 8 minutes. The thing is Yoneyama didn't even have to use her best moves because MARU never competed, and Yoneyama doesn't have much offense beyond those few impressive spots. Yoneyama does do her moves well though. 8:21. *
Making footage of some kind of action comedy movie
Yuki Miyazaki vs. Obatchi Iizuka. There was one good spot where Obatchi slid through the ropes into a headbutt, but Miyazaki avoided. Otherwise, it was beyond retarded. Obatchi put her fingers up Miyazaki's nose. After arguing with the ref, who didn't want to get boogered, she put her fingers up her own nose and "passed out". 3:53 of 12:12
Fang Suzuki & Hiroyo Muto & Ranmaru vs. Sumie Sakai & Megumi Yabushita & Ariya. Lots of action, thoug the moves weren't crisply executed. The match was fine when Ariya wasn't in, but she was really sloppy as usual. 7:50 of 20:00
TWF Sekai Tag Senshukenjiai: Sachie Abe & KAZUKI vs. Sumie Sakai & Megumi Yabushita. Nice moves and some good sequences, but a chaotic helter skelter match. Abe & KAZUKI didn't show anything, but Yabushita & Sakai were good. 7:42 of 12:12

Sachie Abe vs. Kyuuseininja Ranmaru
Sumie Sakai vs. Emi Tojo
Fang Suzuki vs. Hiroyo Muto
Obatchi Iizuka vs. Yumi Oka. A mockery. Oka posed for pictures, painted Obatchi's face in the middle of the match, and so on. She had to pose before doing her lame elbow drop, so perhaps we should call it the schoolgirl's elbow? There wasn't enough in Oka's head to break the daikon on the first try. 6:12 of 9:26. -**
Emi Tojo vs. Mizuho Ishikawa. Atrocious match with tons of mechanical poorly executed moves. Hilarious kakato otoshi by Ishikawa. 4:21 of 8:29
MARU vs. Mari Kuwada. 2:48 of 10:20
Sumie Sakai & Ariya vs. Fang Suzuki & Ranmaru. Sakai was in a class by herself. Normally Fang could go near her level, but she wasn't at her best today, partially because she was mostly stuck with Ariya. Seemed average. 4:42 of 15:36
Megumi Yabushita vs. Hiroyo Muto. They worked pretty well together with Yabushita's athleticism contrasting (and setting up) Muto's power. Muto isn't in Yabushita's class on the mat, but Yabushita doesn't really work to her submissions anyway so it didn't hurt the match like it might have if Yabushita was a more credible submission wrestler. 7:10 of 11:15. **
The Bloody vs. Sachie Abe. An all out match that was supposed to be a great match, but was incredibly unbelievable. Abe started off in Toyota like fashion with a springboard body attack while still in her ring robe, but it was that much more ridiculous because she had to climb from the middle to the top before doing the move to her unharmed opponent. Bloody quickly went hardcore, but since Abe is also influenced by poor woman's Toyota KAORU she uses a broken table half for flying moves. Abe is executing her flying a little better, but the main problem was how contrived it was because she has no other offense thus she goes to it when her opponent is fresh, when they aren't in prone positions, and so on. 13:29 of 18:25. *3/4

Emi Tojo & Mizuho Ishikawa vs. Obatchi Iizuka & Yumi Oka 6:36 of 9:27. Mostly serious match that was funny only because Tojo & Ishikawa found every possible way to poorly execute their offense. Rob Van Tojo has to do a forward roll to show off before her deadly dropkick, and by the time she's actually ready for the move her opponent is too close. Oka sold the whole time. -*
Chitose Yamamoto & Emi Tomimatsu vs. Maya Sakai & Apple Miyuki 3:24 of 5:19. Far more watchable than the previous match. The K-Dojo team stuck to basic moves and heel tactics, mainly executing them adequately. Each wrestler pulled off one big move.
Masked Heroine Dream Match: Ranmaru vs. noki-A 6:35 of 12:32. Some good flying. A played arrogant heel to get the fans to root for Maru. Nothing that would make you think Maru would win, but the work was pretty good.
Sachie Abe vs. KAZUKI 2:49 of 15:30. A mess of a brawl. They threw trash cans at each other then settled on one to use. Someone threw a board in for Abe, several feet over her head.
QOR Senshuken: Fang Suzuki vs. Nanae Takahashi 8:05 of 20:02. Good or better match that was probably one of the better Jd' matches of 2002. Awesomely professional compared to everything that came before with the exception of noki-A's match. Fang was in top form here, extracting a surprisingly dramatic match from Takahashi. They made you believe in the near falls, and were able to do several minutes of them without exhausting or killing all their moves.
TWF Sekai Tag Senshuken: Sumie Sakai & Megumi Yabushita vs. The Bloody & TSUNAMI 12:48 of 18:36. Lioness wouldn't sell much for the younger wrestlers, but she could get around one or two stiffs and use her routine to have a good match. These younger girls have good matches with each other, but the league lacks the depth to keep programming them against each other and they haven't figured out how to circumvent the stiffs. TSUNAMI is one amazing stiff. She mistimed ever step in her sequences with Sakai, insisted on kicking even though she seemingly can only lift her legs 8 inches off the ground, and is even hesitant just running. TSUNAMI is so slow the others could do 3 or 4 spots before she even ascended to the middle rope. TSUNAMI badly needed to be spotted. She should have come in after 5 minutes and used her size to clean house once or twice. One problem is Bloody is the star of the league, so it's hard to ask her to do the selling to protect a cow everyone knows has no business in the main event. With TSUNAMI starting, the match was in the toilet before Bloody even tagged in. It was spectacular when Bloody was in with either opponent, really fast action. TAKA doublecrossed the Jd' head after the match, so Abe came out to save the day. She looked to be getting squashed, but slipped out of the Michinoku drive II and dropkicked TAKA to the floor.

Zen Nihon Junior Oza Kettei Leaguesen: Emi Tojo vs. Saki Maemura 3:29. Not the solid AJW junior style, and a mess for it. More like jump around style.
Chitose Yamamoto & Mizuho Ishikawa vs. Obatchi Iizuka & Yumi Oka 7:39 of 12:25. Asstresses making asses of themselves. Oka & Ishikawa put on a clinic in making everything look far worse than it should. Everyone worked at 1/4 speed, and still everything was blown.
Ranmaru vs. TSUNAMI 3:15 of 6:41. DJ Nira had to interfere to get TSUNAMI the win. That might have helped Ranmaru a little if she got more than token offense in first and lasted a little while.
KAZUKI vs. Hiroyo Muto 3:20 of 6:30. Muto is more effective against an athletic opponent than one like KAZUKI who has a similar body type. Still showed some promise before the premature finish.
The Bloody vs. Megumi Yabushita 11:10. Much shorter and far less complex than their earlier matches. Bloody gives as much effort on a small show as anyone and not surprisingly the moves were good, but it lacked drama and development. **
Sachie Abe vs. Fang Suzuki 14:51 of 15:01. Despite Jd's efforts to make this a key program I can't see this as the main event over Bloody vs. Yabushita. To their credit, they certainly exceeded the previous match, proving the faith the league put in them wasn't unfounded. Kind of like a very poor man's Toyota vs. Aja except the brawling was more garbage oriented. Laid out fairly well, and Abe was more under control because of the opportunities Fang gave her. The wrestling was better than in their cage match. First 12:00 was quite good , but Abe started to falter during some of the key spots and counters. A damn good effort that's probably their best match together even though Abe lost it toward the end and they overused their finishers. **3/4
TWF Tag Oza Kettei 1 Day Tournament Ikkaisen
Hiroyo Muto & Ranmaru vs. Fang Suzuki & Chitose Yamamoto 5:48 of 9:03. Good action and surprisingly solid execution. Fang was good and Maru was allowed to do some moves again. Would have been better if Fang & Yamamoto developed some double teams rather than a pose, but Yamamoto was at her best here. For some reason it didn't hurt Yamamoto to be jackknifed into Ranmaru. **1/4
JYAGIE & Apple Miyuki vs. Sachie Abe & KAZUKI 5:43 of 10:32. Passable match that was mainly Abe vs. Miyuki. The only thing memorable about Miyuki is she has an apple on her ass. If it was candied, she might perhaps serve some purpose. Abe seems to be getting better at finishing segments, adding an element of drama and complex moves she was actually hitting.
Obatchi Iizuka & Yumi Oka vs. The Bloody & TSUNAMI 4:11 of 9:17. Bloody got stuck doing all the selling. She made it watchable, but overall it was just too corny. In the world of Obatchi, popping a plastic bag in front of someone's face makes them fall into a sunset flip.
Mima Shimoda & Mizuho Ishikawa vs. Megumi Yabushita & Sumie Sakai 8:16 of 18:05. Shimoda worked most of the match to keep it from sucking asstress, but Jd' looked really bad becase 2 of their 3 top stars "had to" double team Shimoda to gain the advantage. Tojo did interfere on Shimoda's behalf. Ishikawa was ridiculously out of her depth. Overall it was okay with some good stretches and some sloppiness.
Handicap Match: Fang Suzuki & Obatchi Iizuka & Maru & Chitose Yamamoto vs. Emi Tojo & Mizuho Ishikawa & Yumi Oka 5:54 of 14:43. Even when the sides are even it's "special" wrestling anytime the asstresses are involved. Fang was the only one that did anyting in this bad match.
TWF Tag Oza Kettei 1 Day Tournament Junkessho: Sachie Abe & KAZUKI vs. The Bloody & TSUNAMI 3:01 of 10:29. Pace was far too frantic for TSUNAMI. KAZUKI got the push because TSUNAMI can't take any of Abe's moves. Bad
TWF Tag Oza Kettei 1 Day Tournament Kesshosen: Sachie Abe & KAZUKI vs. Hiroyo Muto & Ranmaru 10:54 of 13:02. Nothing special about this match, in fact it was just there. Helter skelter mishmash. Just when I complement Abe she's back to her sloppy contrived finishes. Luckily Muto regained control and KAZUKI got involved before it actually ended. *1/2
The Bloody vs. Keiko Saito 3:40 of 5:51. Saito didn't show any particular ability, but at least against Bloody she wasn't inept.
Fang Suzuki vs. Obatchi Iizuka & Yumi Oka 4:41 of 5:51. Not as terrible as expected, but too corny for my tastes. Oka would try a basic pin after Obatchi broke a daikon over Fang's head. They tried to pull Fang apart, but Fang made them collide instead.
Emi Tojo vs. Teruko Kagawa 3:26 of 7:10. Kagawa is the first asstress that strikes me as a wrestler. She is a good athlete with a solid missile kick off the 2nd, though her other flying moves need a lot of work. Tojo, now sporting a whip, was botching almost everything as always. Still, at times it resembled a match.
TSUNAMI vs. Ranmaru 3:53 of 7:25. TSUNAMI is getting better, she seems to have learned how to run. Maru is getting sillier, she kept trying to lift TSUNAMI instead of using her quickness. The way she was playing right into her opponent's hand, I kept looking for Kevin Randleman in her corner. Ranmaru got even less offense than the last time she was in with TSUNAMI, but then again she had the success you'd expect with this "strategy" so it's hard to fault TSUNAMI. Overall it was much better than last time because they seemed to pull off what they tried.
Hiroyo Muto vs. Sachie Abe 3:35 of 12:03. Muto is a good base and Abe could use her athleticism to counter Muto's power. What aired was pretty good until the finish was blown. Muto almost killed Abe trying an Argentine backbreaker while standing on the 2nd. They had to redo the spot since the finish was for Abe to turn it into a sunset flip for the win.
Sachie Abe vs. Apple Miyuki 4:09 of 6:01. Illogical but decently executed Abe domination. Apple added nothing.
The Bloody vs. Sumie Sakai 4:39 of 12:56. While easily the best match thusfar, it seemed slow and never got hot. Sakai seemed hurt, but then recovered too easily just to suit who was on offense.
The Bloody vs. TSUNAMI 2:49. DJ Nira and the K-Dojo girls interfered frequently causing Bloody's quick demise. Even with that said, it's sad that Bloody just sold for TSUNAMI.
Tournament Junkessho: TSUNAMI vs. Sumie Sakai 1:18 of 3:56. Weird match. Sakai went from a traditional pro wrestling arm bar to an udehishikigyakujujigatame for the win.
Tournament Junkessho: Sachie Abe vs. Megumi Yabushita 2:59 of 10:25. Nice finishing sequence.
Tournament Kesshosen: Sachie Abe vs. Sumie Sakai 10:36 of 19:26. Moves were fine, but they didn't utilize them or work together that well. A lot of it was just there. Good surprise finish.
