#11

Neo Energy Queen History '95: Chikayo vs. Chihiro Nakano 11:17. Green work. Dull and kind of sloppy.

Scramble Soul To Soul: Megumi Kudo & Kaori Nakayama & Yukari Ishikura (FMW team) vs. KAORU & Meiko Satomura & Toshie Uematsu 16:12. The veterans were willing to sell for the youngsters. Pretty decent match with low level spots early building to the youngsters best spot or two at the end.

Wrestlism: Chigusa Nagayo vs. Combat Toyoda 13:44 of 23:11. Disappointing. Finish was good, but much of the rest of the match was slow paced and dull.

#12

Original Captain Fall Match: Chigusa Nagayo & Dynamite Kansai (JWP) & Bomber Hikaru & Bolshoi Kid (JWP) & Saburo (JWP) & Hiromi Sugo (JWP) vs. Devil Masami (JWP) & Mayumi Ozaki (JWP) & KAORU & Cuty Suzuki (JWP) & Hikari Fukuoka (JWP) & Makie Numao 20:15. Good match with cool tag spots like a 7-dive sequence and a quadruple diving headbutt. Finish was terrible.

Hiromi Yagi (JWP) vs. Toshie Uematsu 10:19. This was the Hiromi Yagi show. She made Uematsu, who was quite green, look like a good solid wrestler. Smooth transitions and sequences due to Yagi. Easily Uematsu's best singles up to this point and she hasn't exactly topped it often since.

Fight To The Last Young Generation One Night Tag Tournament Final: Tomoko Kuzumi (JWP) & Chikayo Nagashima vs. Sonoko Kato & Yuki Miyazaki (JWP) 5:04 of 17:51. Fast paced match with a lot of spots. Pretty good work. Kuzumi & Chikayo win the tournament.

NEO ENERGY QUEEN HISTORY '95 League Match: Toshie Sato vs. Chihiro Nakano

NEO ENERGY QUEEN HISTORY '95 League Match: Meiko Satomura vs. Makie Numao

Sonoko Kato vs. Bomber Hikaru

ATTACK 3: KAORU & Hikari Fukuoka vs. Chikayo Nagashima & Toshie Uematsu. No one stepped up to carry the match. Uematsu & Chikayo seemed to be on offense almost the whole time, but their offense didn't do enough damage for the veterans to be able to sell it much. Average match.

Sakie Hasegawa Single Countdown Special: Sakie Hasegawa vs. Chigusa Nagayo. The post match is very emotional with Chigusa letting Sakie pin her and all the GAEA wrestlers giving Sakie flowers. Sakie just didn't have it anymore in the ring though, so the actual match was nothing special. Average.

GAEA Champ Forum #16 5/11/96 SQUARE JUNGLE taped 4/3/96 Tokyo Korakuen Hall

-1hr 45min. Q=1st Gen

    Champ Forum GAEA Collection #16 2/10/98 originally aired 5/11/96 SQUARE JUNGLE taped 4/3 Tokyo Korakuen Hall

VIOLENT EMOTION: KAORU vs. Meiko Satomura 10:24. KAORU tried to carry, but isn't capable. No heat and no direction. Bad match.

NEO ENERGY QUEEN HISTORY '95: Sonoko Kato vs. Toshie Uematsu 13:28 of 20:00. Good, all-action match. These two went all out to win, but even after two overtimes no one could score a pinfall.

Chikayo Nagashima vs. Michiko Nagashima (LLPW) 10:23. Michiko dominated the match, but Sokoko Kato had an issue with her, so she repeatedly made saves for Chikayo. Chikayo didn't want Kato saving her though, so they argued and fought about it. Good match.

    Champ Forum GAEA Collection #18 2/24/98 originally aired 6/22/96 Hustle Cup in Club Citta taped 5/12/96 Club Citta Kawasaki

Hustle Super Battle Royal 13:24 of 16:27: This was a cool match with good comedy and all kinds of spots where they picked someone to gang up on and all did the same spot to her. Good match.

Hustle Cup Junior Star Tournament Semifinal: Chikayo Nagashima vs. Sonoko Kato 7:25 of 11:05 . Bad match with both looking green.

Hustle Cup Junior Star Tournament Semifinal: Meiko Satomura vs. Toshie Uematsu 6:38 of 10:06. Good submission oriented match with a great finish.

Hustle Cup Junior Star Tournament Final: Meiko Satomura vs. Sonoko Kato 10:51. These two went at it hard and had a tough final. Match was solid, but the finish came too soon. Good match.

#19

WONDER FORTH: Mima Shimoda (AJW) & Toshie Uematsu vs. KAORU & Sugar Sato 13:00 of 20:01. Fast-paced match with good work and lots of spots. Exciting, but no storyline or psychology. Good match.

LLPW 6 Woman Tag League: Bomber Hikaru & Chikayo Nagashima & Sugar Sato vs. Kurenai Yasha & Carol Midori & Mikiko Futagami (LLPW team) 8:14 of 20:35. Exciting match with good work and near falls back and forth. Tons of spots and a cool finish. Very good match.

G's BLOOD PERFORMER III: Toshiyo Yamada (AJW) & Meiko Satomura vs. Chigusa Nagayo & Makie Numao 11:55 of 17:32. Solid work. Numao's kicks looked really good. Numao scores the upset on Satomura. Average match.

#20

RING ON THE BEAT: Bomber Hikaru & Chikayo Nagashima & Sugar Sato vs. Chigusa Nagayo & KAORU & Toshie Uematsu 10:09 of 12:52. Good match, but the important thing is that after the match Ozaki offered Sugar a spot in the Oz Academy, which, much to the dismay of KAORU, Sugar accepted.

WILD HEAT: Mayumi Ozaki (JWP) & Sugar Sato & Reiko Amano (JWP) vs. KAORU & Chikayo Nagashima & Toshie Uematsu 16:01 of 34:31. Oz Academy mugged KAORU forever, causing her to juice. Oz had so much fun beating on KAORU that she was pulling her up at 2. Chikayo turned heel here. She stopped trying to help KAORU and just stood on the apron while Uematsu would try to make saves. When KAORU made a comeback and huracan rana'd Sato, Chikayo came in and kicked KAORU in the back to make the save. Very good match with real good work and a strong storyline.

SUCCEED TO THE GAEA SPIRIT: Chigusa Nagayo & Meiko Satomura vs. Toshiyo Yamada & Sonoko Kato 8:30. Work was fine, but the match was too short to amount to anything.

GAEA Champ Forum #21 9/14/96 ENDLESS SUMMER taped 8/18/96 Tokyo Korakuen Hall

    Champ Forum GAEA Collection #21 3/23/98 originally aired 9/14/96 ENDLESS SUMMER taped 8/18/96 Tokyo Korakuen Hall

+9: Toshiyo Yamada (AJW) vs. KAORU 10:41. Good match with big spots back and forth and really nice execution of them. Kind of short though.

MIRACLE GIRL: Meiko Satomura vs. Bomber Hikaru 7:22 of 12:51. Nothing special. Satomura pins Bomber.

FIRE STARTER: Mayumi Ozaki (JWP) & Sugar Sato & Chikayo Nagashima & Reiko Amano (JWP) vs. Chigusa Nagayo & Sonoko Kato & Toshie Uematsu & Sakura Hirota 18:21 of 19:15. This was Hirota's first TV match and she couldn't do anything. Oz Academy just teamed up to destroy her. Good match.

    Champ Forum GAEA Collection #23 3/31/98 originally aired 10/12/96 BREAK OUT! taped 9/16 Tokyo Korakuen Hall

RECHALLENGE BATTLE: Bomber Hikaru vs. Maiko Matsumoto. Bad match with lousy work and blown spots. Matsumoto's first TV match, and she actually gets the win.

BACK FIRE 1 vs. 2 Handicap Match: KAORU vs. Chihiro Nakano & Makie Numao. Bad match because Nakano & Numao were very green and KAORU can't carry.

GO FOR BLOCK: Meiko Satomura vs. Sakura Hirota. Hirota did a couple dropkicks then Satomura made her submit. DUD.

BRAKE OUT! Sugar Sato & Chikayo Nagashima vs. Sonoko Kato & Toshie Uematsu. This was the first very good match between all GAEA youngsters. Lots of action and very good work. Oz Academy was really good here. ***1/2

    Champ Forum #22

Toshiyo Yamada (AJW) vs. Chigusa Nagayo 1:51. Yamada really fired up for this battle against her idol. It had all the makings of being one of the best GAEA matches, as they shot out of the gate all energetic & intense, throwing bombs back & forth from the get go. Unfortunately, Chigusa won inside 2 minutes. As flash finishes go, this is really what I'd like to see, as Chigusa counters Yamada's reverse gori special bomb by rolling into a legitimate submission finisher, the kneebar, & that's that. Chigusa's roll was not the most graceful, but it was a credible finish, & GAEA would do shoot influenced stuff more realistically than the other promotions because they respected the finishers & wouldn't do so much of the "dramatic" staying in the submission for 2 minutes then grabbing the rope nonsense. Nonetheless, it was a shame that both wrestlers appeared to bring their A game for what ultimately didn't amount to much, and I can't believe AJW let one of their stars get picked off like a fly.

AAAW Jr. Heavy Tag Title Final: Sugar Sato & Chikayo Nagashima vs. Sonoko Kato & Meiko Satomura. Very good match, but their match from the previous Champ Forum was a bit better. This match had the better work of the two, but it was all spots, losing the storyline of injuring Kato's knee and all the Oz Academy's heel tactics. Kato & Satomura become first AAAW Jr. Tag champs. ***1/2

RUN AWAY: Toshie Uematsu vs. Maiko Matsumoto. Bad.

Bomber Hikaru vs. Makie Numao. Stupid comedy and poor transitions. Bad.

AAAW Heavyweight Title Final: Chigusa Nagayo vs. Devil Masami. Good match. Solid work. Slow paced and got sloppier as the match went on and they got tired. Chigusa wins title.
