10/13/96 Tokyo Korakuen Hall WWWA Sekai Superlightkyu Senshuken Jiai: Chapparita ASARI vs. Pequena Azteca (Alda Moreno). An exhibition of spots. Cool flying moves, but Pequena is not exactly known for her execution. **1/4
ASARI shows us her parent's shop, her house, and her room. She has a lot of cool originals that she's on, and plenty of stuffed Disney animals.
Costume Collection Part 1. She models in half the costumes she's ever worn to the ring or wrestled in.
11/4/96 Tokyo Korakuen Hall Tag League The Best '96 Koshikisen: Kyoko Inoue & Chapparita ASARI vs. Aja Kong & Yoshiko Tamura. ASARI did her cool moves, but didn't execute close to her normal level, in part because her and Aja didn't work that well together. 3:43 shown
ASARI goes to Mexico, and they show her climbing a pyramid and walking around in a church
11/8/96 Arena Mexico, D.F. CMLL World Women's Title Decision Tournament: Highlights of Lady Apache vs. Xochilt Hamada & ASARI vs. Diabolica then ASARI vs. Apache Final. The final was short, but it was good while it lasted. They got a lot more out of the big spots than I expected by putting them over and doing dramatic near falls.
Interview where ASARI is asked about her various flying moves, which are shown
Short where ASARI saves a little girl from Yone Genjin and his mini estrella thugs. I was amazed that I never realized how short Pierroth was when I saw him in the ring with ASARI...until I realized it was Pierrothito.
Costume Collection Part 2
11/10/96 Arena Coliseo, D.F.: Lola Gonzalez & Lady Apache & Chapparita ASARI vs. Martha Villalobos & La Diabolica & Lady Star. Technicos had a pretty good team, but you have to have something to work with and they didn't. Martha is so good that she makes makes Eagle seem like the greatest big woman in history.

This is the video complement to Fukawa's photobook of the same name. Footage of Fukawa's vacation to the Republic of Palau where they made the book. A good amount of the footage is from the photo shoots themselves, with Yummy Yumi in various bathing suits, which I might say she fills out quite well. There's also the usual "different" footage that they show on these longer "personal videos" like Fukawa learning how to fish. The wrestling segment contains two matches; Fukawa vs. Tamada & Fukawa & Bennett vs. Watanabe & Genki. Fukawa comes into the 2nd match with a bad cut and the cut gets opened up during the match. After the match they show very graphic footage of the backstage medical treatment Fukawa receives, including her getting stitched up. Didn't they have any more modeling footage they could have shown instead? Much better than Fukawa's first two tapes.
*Review and vidcaps in Quebrada #44*
This video goes along with the photobook of the same name. Taking everything into account, this ranks right up there with the best modeling videos I've seen. This was really well made. It keeps a good pace and has almost no wasted time. It's also a fun video because they show some of the "bloopers" from the production such as people getting tossed in the pool and Fukawa trying to escape from the crew on her bike. Fukawa is such a babe and she looks that much more impressive than just about every wrestler when she's in a bathing suit, which she is for most of this video. However, the highlight is Fukawa rolling around in bed with no top on. She does wear a sheet to cover herself, but she purposely doesn't do the best job of it when she is turning over. I just love ARSION.:) DVD comes with Artemis in Michiko Omukai
Yumi Fukawa image CD-ROM from 1998. 117 photos plus making video.
A more complete version of the video (the same sections have more footage with some of the matches now being complete or fairly close) plus 4 bonus sections. This version doesn't have the Complete ARSION feel because you actually get to see a good amount of wrestling, but there's still a lot of outside the ring footage.
2/18/98 vs. Candy Okutsu. Really good match that was the best singles of Fukawa's career and on par with the best stuff Candy has done with her JWP peers. Exciting, flashy, and well executed submissions and high spots, but also focused attacks. Fukawa is like a new woman with a more mature look and an entirely different move set. Candy looked like her old self. ****
12/7/98 vs. Michiko Omukai. Omukai had Fukawa all but finished, but Fukawa turned Omukai's rolling savate into a hizajujigatame for the win. Not complete.
9/9/98 vs. Mariko Yoshida. Submission oriented Yoshida style match. It doesn't flow as well as it could have, but it's interesting to see them chain the holds together. Not complete
2/18/99 vs. Rie Tamada. Yumi tried to work on a broken foot. Tamada focused her entire attack on the foot, which was good, except Yumi after 3 minutes Yumi legitimately couldn't even stand so the ref had to stop the match. *1/4
5/4/99 vs. Mariko Yoshida. Really beautiful match. Both women were on top of their game displaying smooth, clean technique and doing great counters. Fukawa just keeps improving, the difference between this match and their match from 5/8/98 is incredible. There Fukawa didn't know how to counter, here Fukawa had an answer for everything and it wasn't like she just watched what say Gami did against Yoshida and copied her. This booking of this show wasn't good because it didn't tell any stories, this was the only match that they really made you care who won. Fukawa was made credible and the fans got into her because she was trying so hard and doing so well. There were a couple spots where she had Yoshida beat, and this is what the fans wanted to see. Instead, they got a lot of upsets that just happened without anything being done to make you want to see them. Even though Fukawa lost in the first round, they gave her kanto sho (courageous fighter award) because her performance was so impressive. Normally I'd have a really hard time giving an 11 ½ minute match such a high rating, but I can't say enough about how good this match was. ****
6/30/99 vs. Aja Kong. Aja emphasized the size difference without doing it in a way that helped Fukawa. Fukawa was hardly allowed to get any offense in. All her offense was submissions, but she wasn't able to use her speed or quickness to get them on and Aja showed no disadvantage on the mat as she was able to use several submissions. The match was dull because it was basically a squash, and Aja did dated matwork in a dated way that negated most of the good Fukawa can do on the mat. Too much talent involved to be bad, but hardly the match they could have had. **
7/25/99 Rie Tamada & Yumi Fukawa vs. Etsuko Mita & Mima Shimoda. The match itself was good, but it was done all wrong. It made no sense to introduce LCO in this manner. I mean, Yumi was the only one that even showed that there was some semblance of a rivalry. It's pretty simple, if anyone is going to think it's a big deal that some evil force has invaded the league, everyone has to fight hard and play their roles right. You can't be nice or indifferent, it has to look and feel like something special. Otherwise, what's the point? A lot of the problem was the match was too long. It needed to be heated right off the bat, but since they were going over 21 minutes, they didn't do that much in the first 10. The pace was kind of lethargic and the action was rathe dull. Some things they did were good like Mita acting arrogant and making fun of Yumi's diminutive size. It was good that LCO didn't adopt to ARSION style because why should they start doing things the ARSION way, wrestling like all these women they are in opposition with? They still had to adjust to Yumi's submission style, of course. It became a good match because three of the four have too much talent for it not to be, but anyone with half a brain should have been able to see that doing it in this manner would kill off LCO's potential as a draw in ARSION. It didn't help TamaFuka either because no one gave them a chance to win. They would get a move in more often as the match went on, but in the end Fukawa only had a few near finishes that you might be able to call credible. I hate the blade, but if there was ever a time for it, this was it. They needed to get LCO over, and they needed to show TamaFuka wouldn't give up even though they were really overmatched. Once again, they failed to give the fans a reason to care. 16:18 shown. **1/2
9/26/99 vs. Mariko Yoshida. One of the last matches that was at least close to Yoshida style. Very technical with great movement on the mat. Not as dynamic or exciting as their 5/4/99 match, but it was amazing how much better Fukawa did, mainly her counters, than when they fought on 5/8/98. Fukawa was on Yoshida's level both in portrayal and reality, which propelled her to the period where she was the most consistently good and entertaining wrestler in ARSION until she suffered another concussion and was forced to retire. ***3/4
5/7/00 vs. Rie Tamada. I was surprised by how good this match was. Nice flow. Everything was so well done, and for the most part even made sense. Fukawa deserves tons of credit for getting Rie to not only leave her spot style, but for carrying Rie to a good match in the submission style which Tamada really is not good at. My only real complaint is at one point either Fukawa really injured her knee or her selling was awesome, but Rie didn't keep on it, instead using a few arm submissions when the opportunity arose. Perhaps the best match of the tournament. 3:21 shown
5/7/00 vs. Michiko Omukai. Fukawa is the only wrestler in ARSION that has stuck to the submission style. Omukai was rusty at it and Fukawa tried some moves she shouldn't have due to the huge size differential, so it wasn't as good as their past matches. Omukai was back to her old top notch ways of showing emotions. It was kind of annoying that Fukawa trapped her in a submission about a dozen times, only to have Omukai win with a Tiger suplex hold out of nowhere. It should be noted that Fukawa's near submissions get no reaction now because all the people that were pulling for her last year now know she'll never beat anyone of note. 4:00 shown.
7/16/00 Michiko Omukai & Yumi Fukawa & Bionic J vs. GAMI & Rie Tamada & Red Lynx. This is the match where Fukawa suffers the final injury, but I'm not sure if it's shown. 4:32 shown

Hikari's first "sexy image video" from 1996. Filmed in Hawaii. Basically the same thing as Ozaki's Fascination (that is a good thing), expect it's Hikari instead of Ozaki. Roughly 2/3 of the tape is Fukuoka looking very pretty modeling, mainly in bathing suits. Highlights of Fukuoka vs. Sumiko Saito 7/9/92, Fukuoka & Kansai vs. Ozaki & Cuty-4/3/92 main event of debut show of 2nd coming of JWP, & Fukuoka vs. Kansai from 8/10/96, which is really cool because the highlights were shown in slow motion with the tracer effect (leaves a shadow behind the things that are moving). DVD comes with Hikari Love Fall Vol. 3.

7/14/01 Kyoto KBS Hall: Ayako Hamada & Azumi Hyuga vs. Michiko Omukai & Bionic J 18:28. Good efforts here. Didn't build, but good throughout and never dull. Ayako & Azumi worked well with Omukai, good sequences and counters. J looked plodding with Ayako, but they did a vicious exchange of chops and everything she did was high impact . ***1/4
post mach activities - signing at table, taking down ring, loading bus
4/21/01 QUEEN OF ARSION Title Match: Ayako Hamada vs. Mariko Yoshida 6:21 of 16:06. Seemed to be a back and forth match, unfortunately in Ayako's style. In this form it all seemed meaningless.

3/19/95 Tokyo Korakuen Hall: Sakie Hasegawa vs. Lioness Asuka 3:52 shown. Fast paced back and forth match that made for a nice highlight reel.
4/15/95 Saitama Toda Shi Sports Center, 2/3 Falls: Manami Toyota & Sakie Hasegawa & Mariko Yoshida & Kaoru Ito vs. Kyoko Inoue & Etsuko Mita & Mima Shimoda & Takako Inoue 11:39 of 39:26. Excellent Toyota workrate match. Everyone was wrestling at a high level, though Kyoko appeared to be the best.
4/16/95 Tokyo Korakuen Hall, Zenjo GREATEST 4* Dome Again: Sakie Hasegawa & Manami Toyota vs. Kyoko Inoue & Aja Kong 18:16. Great work and execution. Everyone was on and everything was clicking. Hasegawa was beat on for several minutes then the match really took off with Toyota's hot tag. ****

Akira Hokuto & Suzuka Minami vs. Toshiyo Yamada & Kyoko Inoue 7:57. Entire match is shot in close-up on Hokuto. She mainly works with Yamada. Seems to be a good match, though they aren't working as hard as they typically do on commercial tapes or TV tapings.
Akira Hokuto vs. Toshiyo Yamada 17:53. Early portion takes place on the mat with Yamada working Hokuto's injured shoulder, though in a fairly uneventful manner. They killed the first 15 minutes more than they utilized it, but it picks up tremendously for the final three. The match would have been more interesting if they spread the high spots out over the course of the 18 minutes rather than saving them all for the grand finale. As it stands it's almost like two separate matches, an uninspired 70's style match followed by a hot 90's style sprint. ***
Akira Hokuto & Toshiyo Yamada vs. Yumiko Hotta & Manami Toyota 21:51. Started good, and kept getting better and better. This was a match you believed could end several minutes before it did, but I'm thankful it didn't because Toyota really put on a show in the final minutes. Fierce and furious action between Yamada & Hotta, both in peak form. Yamada worked with Toyota a lot as well, but Yamada wasn't trying to match Toyota or Hokuto in the spectacular department today, sticking with her stiff kicking strength. Hokuto wasn't exactly featured here, but the others were good and motivated so that shouldn't matter unless you are only a fan of Hokuto. Hokuto was excellent in spots, but Yamada was in a lot more lending her brand of credibility and intensity without diminishing the match quality. Hokuto did a post match angle with Rumi Kazama and the LLPW contingent showing up and challenging Hokuto and her LCO group. ****
Akira Hokuto vs. Kurenai Yasha 2:17. Hard to call this a match. Yasha attacked, but Hokuto no sold half of her offense. Hokuto didn't even bother using Yasha's weapon on her when she had the chance. Instead, she literally beat her with her first offensive move. It's amazing LLPW would let one of their stars get embarrassed beyond believe, even AJW rookies were likely to withstand more and last longer. But that's the flaw in their Kandori or bust philosophy, as by not protecting opponents that could be legitimate (Harley for instance) she never had any truly credible opponents within the league (Eagle was the only one that you believed had a 33% chance).
This tape predominatly uses match clips to chronicle the career of one of the best wrestlers ever.
4/28/95 North Korea Mayday Stadium: Akira Hokuto & Bull Nakano vs. Manami Toyota & Mariko Yoshida. Short GAEA style match, but the work was better. They packed a lot into the time they had. It was exciting and everyone was impressive. ***3/4
4/29/95 North Korea Mayday Stadium: Akira Hokuto vs. Bull Nakano. Really good action while it lasted, mainly due to Hokuto. Bull was stiff, but she wasn't made for these kind of spot matches, especially at this point in her career. ***1/4
The rest of the tape is non-wrestling footage shot during the North Korean tour; sight seeing, dancing, etc. There's also backstage footage where we see that Hokuto needs to get 2 needles so she can withstand the pain and go out and entertain us.
Mai Ichii modeling DVD from 2006.
Takako Inoue "lifestyle" video. Activities include a pre-match workout, Takako at a restaurant, modeling, Takako in a wedding dress, and Kyoko & Yamada going through things in her apartment. The tape also has three matches. Toshiyo Yamada & Takako Inoue vs. Suzuka Minami & Mima Shimoda and Kyoko Inoue & Takako Inoue vs. Manami Toyota & Sakie Hasegawa are shot in what I'll call the Takako camera. It's a one camera shoot by a guy running around ringside. It's shot in strobe with all close ups, mainly focusing on what Takako is doing even if she's not in the ring. You can't really judge how good a match is seeing it like this, but it's good as a one time thing because you see a whole different side of the action since all the shots are so tight.
Toshiyo Yamada & Takako Inoue & Sakie Hasegawa vs. Suzuka Minami & Etsuko Mita & Mima Shimoda. A regular effort on a regular house show, but these women were working on such a high level at this point that it's still a very good match. ***1/2

Aja Kong & Bull Nakano & Kaoru Ito vs. Manami Toyota & Kyoko Inoue & Sakie Hasegawa. This was shot in Bull-cam. Basically the showed close shots of what she was doing the whole time. This is interesting since you never get such close shots otherwise, but it's hard to enjoy the match this way since you aren't really seeing what's going on between the legal wrestlers on several occassions.
Bull Nakano & Kyoko Inoue vs. Aja Kong & Akira Hokuto. Not an all out effort, but it shows how good these four were when their matches on non-descript house shows at this point are better than most of the women's matches on the "big" shows of today. Aja seemed to work the hardest. ***1/4
Aja Kong & Bull Nakano vs. Manami Toyota & Kyoko Inoue. Like the last match, it wasn't their A match, but it was still quite good. Toyota looked really good at times, but was also kind of sloppy. ***1/4

Noumi and partner Miho Wakizawa make their 1st image videos in Hawaii. Since they are both there, Miho is in some of the scenes, including putting Kayo in a udehishigigyakujujigatame on her bed.
Kayo's 1st modelling DVD from 2003. This isn't the glamourpuss self promoting crap we are stuck with in the US. For most of the DVD, you can actually see Kayo's face rather than that of an amateur of disguise hiding behind gobs of gook. She doesn't spend the whole time trying to sell you on how sexy she is, which makes perfect sense because this isn't drop a coin in and hope like a peep show; with millions of models you wouldn't spend $30 on her if you didn't already like her. Kayo pretty much goes about her business, not being overly concerned by the camera's presence. She mainly does her normal routine like working out (which focuses on flexiblity necessary for actual women's wrestling rather than tightening her body so she can look more like a Barbie) and taking a shower, letting the production team do their job. On that end their are mixed results, especially the way the lone match highlights (her 5/11/03 upset over Shimoda) are shown with mostly tight shots of Kayo and just a little box in the corner for the regular distance footage that lets you observe the match rather than just Noumi, but putting the rest to classical music almost always helps.

Omukai's first modeling video, which goes along with her (2nd) photobook of the same name. This is one of the great modeling videos. I can't really chose between this video and Fukawa's, but both rule because they are really well made and the women look great. I guess it's a matter of taste. Fukawa is incredibly beautiful, while Omukai is incredibly sexy. Fukawa has an awesome face, while Omukai has an awesome body. Omukai's video has a lot more footage where she doesn't have a top on, so maybe that gives this the edge? Read Comments . DVD comes with Aphrodite in Yumi Fukawa.
Michiko Omukai nude modeling DVD. Goes with her photobook of the same title.
This is a 5-member personal video. The tape has a feature on each woman which consists of modeling in a dress, modeling in a bathing suit, an interview, and an activity, for example Wakizawa surfing or Motoya taking a trip to an amusement park. In between the features of one woman there are group activities such as them lighting off fireworks, which is kind of funny because Chiharu is so scared of them (she hides under a table). Motoya carries this tape like Shiro Koshinaka used to carry the NJ stiffs. She is incredibly attractive. Kosugi looks prettier than normal and Chiharu is no slouch either, but they simply can't hold a candle to the exotic young babe Motoya.
Mayumi Ozaki's "Sexual Private Video." This is her only solo modeling video, which goes along with her A La Carte photobook. Ozaki looks unbelievably hot modeling in lingerie & swimsuits! She is the coolest of the cool, the minkiest of the minky, and the sexiest of the sexy. IMO, this is the best of all the "personal tapes" that I've seen. Oz Rules! DVD comes with Mayumi Ozaki & Cuty Suzuki Sexy Shot in Hawaii.

The first "all nude" video from the top heavy idol/jockey/announcer/failed shooter, filmed in a "private paradise" in Mexico in 1999. This is not one of those making videos videos that plays like an infomercial for the book, and it's a lot more risque than any similar video the wrestlers have put out.

8/16/96 Tokyo Korakuen Hall, Class of 1987 10th Anniversary Match, 2/3 Falls WWWA Tag Title Match: Mima Shimoda & Manami Toyota vs. Toshiyo Yamada & Etsuko Mita 6:28 of 6:33, 0:47 of 5:53, 5:21 of 7:21. Spectacular, hyper action from start to finish. They went for a blow away match, pulling big spots from the outset. The audience threw tons of streamers before the match, and were rabid throughout, believing in every near fall. Toyota was really on today, but the edit obviously featured Shimoda, who gave a big effort but couldn't control her body as precisely. Yamada mainly worked with Shimoda, and gave one of her better performances of the year. **** range

The video complement of The Goddess' photobook of the same name. Kind of a cross between the making of the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit issue, without all the wasted time on talking, and a lengthy music video. It's a half hour of The Goddess, IMO, easily the best looking women ever to make a living in the wrestling business, and she's wearing bathing suits or underwear almost the entire time, so what more is there to say?
Being the world's biggest Goddess mark, I probably can't comment objectively about this tape, so I won't even try. I can't help the fact that there's no one I'd rather look at. Anyway, this is the video compliment of The Goddess' #1 and THE BEST modeling photobook Desire. The Goddess wearing bathing suits, bikinis cut off jeans, etc. The Goddess in the bathtub. The Goddess in bed with nothing but a sheet to cover her. Drool~!

Lifestyle video showing Cuty's life outside the ring. It has a little modeling, but it's more a behind the scenes video showing her hanging out with her wrestling friends (Kansai comes to her apartment and starts going through her things to be a pain), having dinner with her parents, playing with her dog. It also shows her wrestling in the dojo (the part where her and Ozaki are practicing a match is pretty good). From 1994.

This is made by the same company, TAKE SHOBO, that made the legendary Ozaki Fascination image video. They once again did a great job. Cuty looks a lot better than she normally does, which says something. She's not nearly as Cute as she used to be, but she more than makes up for it by being a whole lot sexier. She's become a lot better model than she was a wrestler, which isn't really saying much except that she wrestled full time for 13 years and just did some modeling on the side, but I'm all for her getting more practice if you know what I mean.:) The modeling footage is well shot, sexy and erotic, but the making footage is just a waste. I mean, this was hardly the JWP as long as we have Kana in a bathing suit it doesn't matter how pathetic the production is, they had a lot of style. However, it's not like they are Jeunet, Lucas, or Cameron. They are doing it well, but not exactly doing anything revelolutionary. The making part really killed the SM scene because that needed to be shown all the way through first so it could seem "real" and then maybe it would have all the intensity it needed to work. Instead, it was all disjointed because they just did scenes with a lot of time lapse for the book instead of shooting the footage to fill the gaps for the video, and they showed how fake it was by going to shots of them making it. Mainly the making was just a camera farther back so you could see a photographer snapping photos. Luckily, this portion was hardly an integral part of the video like the title might suggest, and this wasn't one of those videos where they showed 10 different versions of the same 15 second scene. Unfortunately, the nudity also wasn't an integral part of the video. I would have bought it without any nudity and been happier in the sense that it's annoying that they advertise nudity, but then are constantly shying away from delivering any during the portions where she has no clothes on. For me, the video was actually better the second time because I knew what to expect and could enjoy all the top quality portions instead of expecting nudity and making and barely getting any for the former and not getting near the quality of the rest of the video from the later.

Personal video of Yamada & Toyota from 1994 in Saipan for a photo shoot and to make a rock video for "Power on the Dream." Highlight of the tape is Toyota moonsaulting into a pool. Comes with Toyota-Yamada 12/8/89
Manami Toyota vs. Yumiko Hotta 19:52. Toyota vs. Hotta would have been a great series if it were marked by the sort of positive attitude both displayed here. In a sense it was more Hotta’s match becuse she drilled Toyota with kick after kick, but she also sold Toyota’s aerial attack quite a bit, so it was very much a back and forth contest. They didn’t waste must time, and really stepped the action up at the 15-minute mark. ***3/4
Manami Toyota & Yumiko Hotta vs. Akira Hokuto & Toshiyo Yamada 21:50. Yamada worked so much that, until the later stages, you could almost forget Hokuto was even in the match. Normally that wouldn’t be a positive, but since Yamada was Hotta’s best opponent in these days, it definitely wasn’t a bad thing. Yamada could do the quasi UWF style well, more or less matching Hotta’s stiffness and intensity. The two big hitters traded blows in the best manner, making it a big deal when one broke through in any regard by forcing the opponent to sell, go down, or pretend to be injured. The match would have been much better suited to Yamada or Hotta’s tape. Toyota’s offense is never going to connect with the force or precision of those two, so while she did fine, she’s not going to stand out in a match built around stiffness the way she does in the usual match built around ring work or workrate. ***1/2
Manami Toyota vs. Etsuko Mita 16:44. Mita didn’t yield to Toyota even though Toyota is the far bigger star. She played her game, using her size and power, turning it into a brawl when she had the opportunity. They generally worked at Mita’s methodical pace, with bursts of action from Toyota. Though you never quite believed Mita could win, she made a good enough showing. The problem here is neither seemed to take it as a particularly important match, so they were content to apply no more effort than was necessary to make it good. ***
This tape has a very good Toyota vs. Sakie Hasegawa match from 10/4/95 Tokyo Korakuen Hall, a good Toyota & Ito vs. Kyoko Inoue & Tomoko Watanabe Tag League The Best '95 match from 10/15/95 Hakata Star Lanes, old wrestling footage of Toyota including her Japan Grand Prix '90 win, & highlights of Toyota's favorite spots. It also has several non-wrestling features including Toyota dressing up in a "China outfit."
The first 2 hours show highlights of Toyota's best and most famous matches including winning the Japan Grand Prix, the great series vs. Toshiyo Yamada culminating with the famous hair vs. hair match, Toyota & Yamada defeating Aja & Bison to win WWWA tag, teaming with Yamada vs. Ozaki & Kansai in three classic matches, Toyota defeating Aja for WWWA Title, Toyota's legendary 60 minute draw with Kyoko Inoue, & Toyota defeating Kansai for to win the WWWA World Single Title for the second time. The last 40 minutes is the 30 round match for Korakuen Hall on 12/25/95

12/16/01 Kanagawa Kawasaki Shi Taiikukan Miho Wakizawa Intai Jiai Wacky Final Smile: Miho Wakizawa vs. Kayo Noumi. A good match for them. They kept it simple early on then Wakizawa started going to her "big" moves at 8:00. Wakizawa got the majority of the offense in since she was losing, which boded well since even an injured up Wakizawa has far better moves and execution than Noumi. Everything was well executed for Noumi. Well there was a lot of repetition since neither are capable of doing much, I'd certainly rather see more missile kicks, fisherman busters, and doublewrist armsaults and the usual goofiness. Actually, this was probably as serious as MihoKayo gets. Although it had surprisingly little atmosphere, especially for a retirement match, this is probably the best match they've had against one another. Noumi pinned Wakizawa with her own fishermanbuster. During Wakizawa's retirement ceremony, Rumi & Takako made it look like they were going to have Eagle beat Miho up. However, they "doublecrossed" Eagle with a double DDT and had Wakizawa pin her with a diving body press. **1/2
Michael Smith's comments: The match started out slowly being that they were using very basic moves. The first few minutes were very reminiscent of a "green" girls match from say '94 or '95. That and the strategy of using eardrum piercing screams to make each other deaf took away from this match a bit. There were however a lot of nice near falls (which unfortunately were hurt by the lack of heat) over the last few minutes including Kayo rolling through on a top rope hurancanrana for a two count and another two count off Kayo's rolling doublewrist armsaults. It's a good thing this was Miho retirement match in the sense that Kayo surviving 5 fisherman's busters killed Wakizawa's finisher dead. Noumi eventually got the win with a fisherman's buster of her own that came off more like a regular fisherman's suplex (minus the bridging pin attempt). They kept the goofiness down in this match which helped it be better than I had expected going in. As I said before, the lack of heat hurt them but overall I feel they still put out a **1/2 effort. Miho got alot of streamers before and after the match, which makes you wonder why the crowd couldn't support her during it. I think she could come back though and be successful if she recovers from her injuries and decides she wants to wrestle again. She never was or will be a great worker but she and Kayo both have a lot of charisma as a team and since standards aren't as high as they were in the mid-late '90s, she certainly has a solid place in today's era.
