GAEA vs. Oz Academy Survival Single Match 3x3: Toshie Uematsu & RIE & Sakura Hirota vs. Sugar Sato & Chikayo Nagashima & Kaori Nakayama. 18:40 shown

GAEA vs. Las Cachorras Tag Match : KAORU & Toshiyo Yamada vs. Mima Shimoda & Etsuko Mita. This was the typical GAEA spotfest, except it was bloody and 4 times as long. There was really no build, pacing, or structuring. However, they did ever move in their arsenal at least once, and there were some memorable spots like KAORU doing a moonsault off the lighting rig, plus seemingly a thousand near falls. Without telling a story of figuring out how to use the spots though, they lost their effect and it got monotonous. That said, considering GAEA, opposition, and 38 minutes, LCO deserve a lot of credit for having this good a match. 13:27 shown. ***3/4

GAEA vs. SSU Tag Match: Meiko Satomura & Sonoko Kato vs. Aja Kong & Mayumi Ozaki. This was very similar in story to the LCO vs. Hamada & AKINO match from 12/11/99. Satomura & Kato were very much overmatched against the veteran team, but they were going to fight until the end no matter how much punishment they had to absorb. One advantage this match had over the LCO vs. Hamada & AKINO match was that they did a consistently great job of playing up the rivalry. Aja & Ozaki dominated the match, but they did it in a way that you could tell they were taking exceptional pleasure in hurting Satomura & Kato. The first part of the match saw them take out Kato's bad knee, but when she finally tagged out the story shifted to Satomura trying to take Aja out with her Death Valley bomb. ****

Special Single Match: Chigusa Nagayo vs. Lioness Asuka. Much different than their 80's matches. It was still spot oriented, but the pace was much slower and many of the spots involved gimmicks. Lioness was pretty much the whole match, with Chigusa not really adding anything and basically just being along for the ride. I was surprised at how dominant Lioness was considering she was winning control of the company. I was disappointed at how little drama it had, all things considered. **1/2

GAEA G-PANIC! #17 QUICK FIRER 2/21/99
-1hr 55min. Q=1st Gen

    2/3/99 Osaka Furitsu Taiikukan 2

Sakura Hirota vs. KAORU 13:48. You know you are in for it when KAORU tries to carry a match, but a singles match won't be good no matter who Hirota is wrestling. Hirota tried to make you laugh at her during the first part of the match with a J.T. Smith spot blowing routine. Thus, even though she was getting a bunch of near falls in the second half, you couldn't believe she would actually get the win. 1/4*

Premium League Final: Toshie Uematsu vs. Meiko Satomura 19:26. The mental aspects were better, but the work wasn't as good as you'd expect. I thought the shoot style stuff they did was fairly decent, but they didn't work stiff enough, so that took away from the intensity level they were trying to show. The selling of the moves in this match at the time they happened was nothing special, but the carry over selling was very good. The last few minutes contained several near falls, and the finish was pretty much perfect because they were able to show how dead they were going into the exchange of blows.***1/4

    2/11/99 Tokyo Korakuen Hall

Mima Shimoda & Etsuko Mita vs. Toshiyo Yamada & Sonoko Kato 23:09. A standard LCO match. It had the typical good work, good brawling, and good spots. LCO was once again pretty dominant. Even with Yamada involved, the outcome was never really in doubt. ***1/4

Lioness Asuka & Mayumi Ozaki vs. KAORU & Meiko Satomura 15:20. This match was fairly similar to the previous match, but the work was better and it wasn't the same old thing since these were new pairings. This was also a generally one-sided brawl with good work and spots, but not much build or psychology, especially since KAORU was doing dives and moonsaults right off the bat. Lioness & Ozaki were as good as you'd expect though, and Satomura looked really good wrestling them, so that made the match. ***1/2

Aja Kong & Chikayo Nagashima vs. Chigusa Nagayo & Toshie Uematsu 0:07

GAEA G-PANIC! #18 YOKOHAMA COUNTDOWN 3/30/99
-1hr 55min. Q=1st Gen

LCO highlights

3/26/99 Chiba Koen Taiikukan: Mima Shimoda & Etsuko Mita vs. Toshiyo Yamada & Meiko Satomura. LCO basically wreaked havoc here. Their illegal tactics allowed them to dominate most of the match. Good work, particularly from Shimoda & Yamada. ***1/2

3/20/99: Niigata Phase: Aja Kong & Chikayo Nagashima vs. Meiko Satomura & Sonoko Kato. Aja pretty much just stood in the same spot and kicked, punched or used objects. She sold virtually nothing. Satomura finally Death Valley bombed her, but Aja kicked out. The match was much better when Chikayo was in because it was back and forth and more exciting. ***

3/22/99: Tokyo Korakuen Hall: Lioness Asuka & Aja Kong vs. Meiko Satomura & Sonoko Kato. Aja had to sell more here because she was the junior member of her team, but it was way too one-sided with Satomura & Kato never having a chance. The execution was good, but the work was disappointing since Lioness & Aja weren't exactly fired up for such "weak" opposition and wouldn't really give them anything. **

-2hr 55min. Q=1st Gen. 1 DVD

GAEA vs. Oz Academy Survival Single Match 3x3: Toshie Uematsu & RIE & Sakura Hirota vs. Sugar Sato & Chikayo Nagashima & Kaori Nakayama

A) Sato vs. Uematsu. They didn't work that well together because Sugar just sucked. They did a lot of near falls that looked like the finish, but prior to this it was slow, sloppy, and boring. The near falls kind of saved it though. *1/2

B) Sato vs. RIE. Sugar has fallen so far that RIE had to carry her. RIE was on offense most of the time, and actually looked pretty good. They ran out of moves in 5 minutes though. The previous match was more dramatic, but RIE did a better job of carrying Sugar than Uematsu did. *1/2

C) Sato vs. Hirota. It was serious, but there was no quality here. DUD

D) Hirota vs. Nakayama. Hirota did virtually nothing offensively. Nakayama worked hard though, and Hirota wasn't too bad at taking her moves. *

E) Hirota vs. Nagashima. Chikayo did an excellent job here. The wrestlers that were already eliminated getting involved also helped save the match. Hirota once again played the role of being totally overmatched, but her luck finally ran out, as she wasn't able to fall into a flash pin this time. **

GAEA vs. Las Cachorras Tag Match : KAORU & Toshiyo Yamada vs. Mima Shimoda & Etsuko Mita. This was the typical GAEA spotfest, except it was bloody and 4 times as long.

GAEA vs. SSU Tag Match: Meiko Satomura & Sonoko Kato vs. Aja Kong & Mayumi Ozaki. This was very similar in story to the LCO vs. Hamada & AKINO match from 12/11/99.

5/16/99 Tokyo Korakuen Hall

AAAW Single Senshuken:Chigusa Nagayo vs. Aja Kong. Slow-paced match, but pretty high impact. Lots of heat and real good execution. The no selling portion was bizarre because a minute later they were both acting like they dead, and two minutes later it was over. There were some surprisingly nice spots and good near falls, but there just wasn't enough to the match to make it live up to the names involved. ***

Chigusa Nagayo vs. Etsuko Mita. The complete 19 second marathon

7/18/99 Tokyo Korakuen Hall

AAAW Tag Senshuken: Aja Kong & Mayumi Ozaki vs. Sugar Sato & Chikayo Nagashima. Sato, and to a greater extent Nagashima, were first able to show resilience by withstanding a lot of punishment. They slowly gained momentum, setting up a section where both teams got near falls that looked like the finish, and finally scored the highly improbable upset. This match was similar to the Aja & Ozaki vs. Satomura & Kato match from 4/4/99, but it lacked the focused storyline and the intensity that Aja vs. Satomura had. Although there wasn't a more personalized story to the match, after being totally dominated early one, the basic underdog has a chance storyline slowly went into effect, and eventually the fans were reacting to and believing in Sato & Nagashima. Aside from a few blown spots, the main reason the match as a whole was not as good is that Sugar, although this was one of her better performances of the year, is not in the same stratosphere as Sonoko. That said, the match was fulfilling and is definitely one to check out if you like GAEA. Read Review. ***1/2

8/15/99 Tokyo Korakuen Hall

Lioness Asuka vs. Sonoko Kato. This match seemed much better now that we saw more of it. It wasn't so steeped in Lioness' favor as it seemed on TV. Kato at least had one good run whwere she got a few near falls, and Lioness "had to" spew mist in Kato's eyes to regain the advantage and take her out. Kato was "virtually unconscious" in the last few minutes, but she kept dragging herself up.

Akira Hokuto & Aja Kong & Mayumi Ozaki vs. Chigusa Nagayo & Toshiyo Yamada & Meiko Satomura. Chigusa was trying to get something out of the spots today. This wasn't the best wrestling you'll ever see, but they did play up the rivalry well. They got into the spots around the 10 minute mark, with Ozaki, Yamada, & Satomura stepping up. Satomura vs. Aja was featured, and this was the best part of the match because they worked really well together and Satomura was even more fired up than usual. This booking was abysmal because on the last "big" show before the title match in Yokohama, the challenger that was sorely lacking credibility put the champion over convincingly. Satomura even stayed down almost "unconscious" for the whole time Aja was cutting a promo on her. She only got up to her knees when Aja pulled her by the hair then threw her down again like a piece of trash. ***1/2

Oz Academy 8/29/99 Osaka IMP Hall

Mayumi Ozaki & Aja Kong & Sugar Sato vs. Lioness Asuka & Mima Shimoda & Etsuko Mita. Helter skelter match with heavy use of chairs and tables. Good moves, but these women should be above the ECW TV match level of lets do everything we know in 9 minutes because we don't want people to get bored and flip the channel. Ozaki's knee wasn't as much of a factor against her and she was in and out, so she looked better here. **1/2

*I have a limited number of additional 1st Gen VHS*

GAEA G-PANIC! #20 5/20/99 THE DAY AFTER & WIPE OUT
-1hr 55min. Q=1st Gen

THE DAY AFTER 4/25/99 Tokyo Korakuen Hall

Chigusa Nagayo vs. Kaori Nakayama 0:35. Lioness made Chigusa a prelim wrestler for this show, but that just gave Chigusa the night off, as Kaori was barely even able to last half a minute.

Lioness Asuka vs. Sonoko Kato 0:32. Sato helped Lioness out right away and they took Kato out in 32 seconds. Even with it being 2-1, Kato should have lasted much longer as she usually takes tons of punishment, but today she took a few chair shots and a stuff Ligerbomb. I guess Lioness had to top Chigusa by dispatching the young punk even quicker, except Kato is a valuable player.

KAORU & Meiko Satomura & Sonoko Kato vs. Lioness Asuka & Mayumi Ozaki & Mima Shimoda 18:43. KAORU was goofy as always, but her work was good. Unfortunately, Satomura & Kato weren't put over, so it was mainly about how long KAORU's team could keep saving each other to hang on. Shimoda was as good as you'd expect, but aside from her and KAORU it wasn't nearly as good as it sounded on paper. **1/2

WIPE OUT 5/4/99 Nagoya Nakamura Sports Center

Lioness Asuka vs. Sonoko Kato 18:45. Kato did much better here, although without Satomura's help she still wouldn't have had a chance. After some double teaming Kato got a few near finishes, and it was more exciting from there as Lioness was committed to putting Kato away, but Kato kept kicking out. 10:42 shown. Good match.

Toshiyo Yamada & Toshie Uematsu & Sakura Hirota vs. Mima Shimoda & Etsuko Mita & Chikayo Nagashima 22:27. Good match due to LCO and Yamada. Hirota wasn't really annoying here because her comedy involved actual wrestling done right. ***

WIPE OUT 5/9/99 Kawagoe Pepe Hall

6 Woman Battle Royal 7:20. Hirota was the life of the match. She was stuck with all the SSU. Although they ganged up on her, they kept double crossing each other and pinning one of their "teammates" instead of pinning Hirota. The finish was ridiculously pathetic with Hirota "not being able to stop" urakening, just spinning around forever until she collapsed. It was a fun match overall that never had the lame brawling you usually see in a battle royal. **

Mima Shimoda & Sugar Sato vs. Meiko Satomura & Toshie Uematsu 14:09. Sato wasn't much, but the others were good enough. Not a great effort, but it was servicable. **1/4

GAEA G-Panic! #23 8/12/99 SURPRISE ATTACK
-1hr 55min. Q=TV Master

7/3/99 Act City Hamamatsu: Lioness Asuka vs. Sakura Hirota. The match started off with Hirota tricking Lioness by offering her flowers, but hitting her with them when she got close enough. Later on, there was a table set up in the corner and Hirota was on Lioness' back holding her arms, so Lioness would jerk forward, which would cause Hirota to headbutt the table. 1:13 shown

7/4/99 Osaka IMP Hall: Mayumi Ozaki vs. Sakura Hirota Hirota kneeled in the corner and talked on a walkie talkie at the beginning of the match until Ozaki went over and kicked her.

7/18/99 Tokyo Korakuen Hall

Kaori Nakayama vs. Super Heel Sakura Hirota. Hirota brought a broom to the ring in place of the Super Heel rod. She sold a low blow huge, but it was all an act so she could uraken Kaori. However, the uraken either missed or did no damage because Kaori went right into a small package for the win. 4:26 shown

Meiko Satomura & Sonoko Kato vs. Toshie Uematsu & RIE. Frantic action. Uematsu was in during the whole portion that aired, so it was real good. 4:51 shown

Lioness Asuka & Mima Shimoda vs. Chigusa Nagayo & Toshiyo Yamada. Brawling early. Chigusa mainly got beat on. She bled. Turned into a spot match. Either way, nothing they did meant much and the fans weren't as into it as you'd think, so there wasn't much drama even though there was a lot of saves. Lioness and Yamada didn't work together as well as you'd expect, which hurt the match a lot since Chigusa isn't exactly going to pick up the slack. **1/2

7/4/99: Chikayo Nagashima vs. Toshie Uematsu. Chikayo worked over the arm, including a diving footstomp and a missile kick. These two worked really well together, and were both very animated in the ring. Very intense match. 7:09 shown. ***1/2 range

7/18/99 AAAW Tag Senshuken: Aja Kong & Mayumi Ozaki vs. Sugar Sato & Chikayo Nagashima. Sato, and to a greater extent Nagashima, were first able to show resilience by withstanding a lot of punishment. They slowly gained momentum, setting up a section where both teams got near falls that looked like the finish, and finally scored the highly improbable upset. This match was similar to the Aja & Ozaki vs. Satomura & Kato match from 4/4/99, but it lacked the focused storyline and the intensity that Aja vs. Satomura had.

GAEA G-PANIC! #24 9/8/99
-1hr 55min. Q=TV Master

8/15/99 Tokyo Korakuen Hall: Lioness Asuka vs. Sonoko Kato. This was one of those master vs. potential student matches where the master proves dominance and then takes the kid under their wing. The extent to which Lioness dominated Kato was ridiculous. Satomura was pissed at her partner's defection. 6:05 shown

8/15/99: Akira Hokuto & Aja Kong & Mayumi Ozaki vs. Chigusa Nagayo & Toshiyo Yamada & Meiko Satomura. Chigusa was trying to get something out of the spots today. This wasn't the best wrestling you'll ever see, but they did play up the rivalry well. They got into the spots around the 10 minute mark, with Ozaki, Yamada, & Satomura stepping up.

8/29/99: Osaka IMP Hall: Akira Hokuto & Aja Kong vs. Toshiyo Yamada & Meiko Satomura. This was even worse booking than the previous match because, based on what was shown, Satomura didn't get any offense in before Aja made her look like a jobber. 4:22 shown

GAEA G-PANIC! #25 9/17/99 Yokohama DOUBLE DESTINY taped 9/15 Kanagawa Yokohama Bunka Taiikukan
-2hr 55hr. Q=Near Perfect. 2 DVDs

Sonoko Kato vs. Toshie Uematsu. Good work and action. A big sloppy, but at least the level of difficulty was fairly high. The match could have went either way, but I was kind of surprised and disappointed that it ended when it did. There was certainly significance in it ending with one of Lioness' moves, but kind of weird that it was one that Lioness never wins with. **3/4

Kaori Nakayama vs. RIE. RIE dominated with brawling tactics and weapon use. Kaori bled. Execution was better than expected, but it was dull because it was a squash where little talent was posessed or displayed. 4:35 shown.

Super Heel Sakura Hirota vs. Devil Masami. Hirota's opponent was a mystery, so she came out dressed up like Super Heel only to find out Devil was her opponent. This match had a ton of stalling disguised as comedy. They hardly even touched during the first 6 minutes. DUD

Akira Hokuto & Mayumi Ozaki vs. Mima Shimoda & Etsuko Mita. Chaotic quadruple juice brawl. I don't know what happened here, but it was like they forgot what made them good. I mean, this was the kind of brawl I'd expect if it was Ganstas vs. Public Enemy. Gimmick spot after gimmick spot with the few series of 2 to three wrestling moves seemingly only there to set up some kind of interference. The execution wasn't as good as expected, and there was virtually no selling at all. This was literally the worst match these four could possibly have together. Mindless indy level violence. *1/2

AAAW Tag Senshukenjiai: Suger Sato & Chikayo Nagashima vs. KAORU & Toshiyo Yamada. Exciting match. KAORU did a diving attack off the lighting rig. Only half was shown but it seemed good since Sato, who pretty much only used her uraken, was hidden.

AAAW Single Senshukenjiai: Aja Kong vs. Meiko Satomura. Read Review. ****1/2

Revenge Match: Chigusa Nagayo vs. Lioness Asuka. This match got off to a hot start. Chigusa came out with a vengeance, attacking Lioness before the bell when streamers were flying everywhere. Chigusa followed with a footstomp off the apron when Lioness was buried under the streamers. Lioness came back, heaving Chigusa off the runway onto a table then piledriving Chigusa through it. They climbed up the lighting rig, but Chigusa kicked Lioness off. A little after this, the match lost it's brawling identity, as they did about 10 minutes of fairly boring submission oriented wrestling in the ring. After seeing the intensity and viciousness of the early offense, I couldn't get into them laying around or doing some low level spots. The crowd heat died during this portion, so it wasn't like I was the only one that was bored. Finally, they went outside and started cracking each other with chairs then returned to the ring where they went to their bigger moves. Although they never regained the initial intensity, the last several minutes were the quality high impact wrestling we've come to expect from Lioness. Chigusa bled after being powerbombed on the runway and off it. The execution was strong, but the match lacked identity. Even though it was the match that sold all the tickets, it didn't have nearly as much heat as the previous match, at least partly because it couldn't follow it. **3/4
