Match 1
Hina vs Rina
(referee: Barb Sasaki)

Show/Hide Results

Result: Hina wins via pinfall with a modified Gedo Clutch
Time: 5:02

Match Thoughts
This was a fine opener. Hina and Rina are really coming along well. I liked expecially liked the finish of the match.


Match 2
Ruaka vs Leo Onozaki vs Saki Kashima
(referee: Barb Sasaki)

Show/Hide Results

Result: Saki Kashima pins Leo Onozaki after My Emblem
Time: 4:05

Match Thoughts
Good match. Saki Kashima, with her brand-new Oedo Tai teammates Tora Natsuko and Natsu Sumire at ringside, didn’t have too much of a problem with this match. Kashima turned her back on her opponents and sat down on the edge of the ring at the opening bell, and she only got involved when someone used a submission hold on in the ring. Onozaki was able to fight back a little, but overall this was a strong outing from Oedo’s Tai’s newest member. I think I’m going to like Kashima in Oedo Tai.


Match 3
Zoey Skye & Jamie Hayter & Bea Priestley vs Leyla Hirsch & Konami (Goddess Champ) & Jungle Kyona (Goddess Champ)
(referee: Barb Sasaki)

Show/Hide Results

Result: Leyla Hirsch pins Zoey Skye with a moonsault press
Time: 8:29

Match Thoughts
Very good match. Jungle Kyona got in trouble early when she got isolated by the opposing team. Kyona struggled for a while, but a timely tag to Konami began to turn things around. Konami and Leyla Hirsch were able to regain control of the match, and that led to a nice finish. I liked that the finish was satisfying for tonight, but it didn’t settle anything in regards to the upcoming tag title match between Tokyo Cyber Squad and the team of Bea Priestley and Jamie Hayter.


Match 4
Session Moth Martina & Natsu Sumire & Natsuko Tora & Kagetsu vs Itsuki Hoshino & Saya Iida & Saya Kamitani & Tam Nakano
(referee: Daichi Murayama)

Show/Hide Results

Result: Kagetsu submits Saya Iida with a Boston crab
Time: 13:23

Match Thoughts
Very good match. The match started with everyone going on about how cute Itsukiu Hoshino is, and that led to Oedo Tai mocking Hoshino while completely dominating her as a team. Eventually the Stars team managed to get together and fight back, and the match went back and forth from there. The final few minutes had Kagetsu facing Saya Iida one on one for a while, and I quite enjoyed that. This was a fun match and another entertaining part of Kagetsu’s retirement road.


Ring Area
After the match, Kagestu has three things to say. First, she says she wants her retirement match to be against her teacher, Meiko Satomura. Second, she’d like for all of Oedo Tai to attend her retirement match next month. She’d also like for Saya Iida to be there, but she won’t say why. And third, since Saki Kashima just joined Oedo Tai, she’d like for the stable to team together one more time with her in a Stardom ring.


Match 5
Andras Miyagi & Giulia vs DEATH Yama-san & Hana Kimura
(referee: Barb Sasaki)

Show/Hide Results

Result: DEATH Yama-san pins Andras Miyagi with an O’Connor roll
Time: 8:15

Match Thoughts
Good match. Hana and Giulia started the match throwing fists and forearms at each other. They laid into each other for a while without either one really getting an advantage, then Yama-san and Miyagi came in to lighten the mood. It would go that way throughout the match, alternating between fighting and fun, until a quick pin ended the proceedings. I liked it.


Ring Area
After the match, Giulia says she isn’t bothered by tonight’s result. Giulia says she’s going to get some people to join her, and she proposes to Hana that they have a team battle at the upcoming Korakuen Hall show. Hana says she doesn’t think Giulia has any friends, so how can she form a unit to do battle? Giulia looks annoyed as she leaves.


Match 6
AZM (Artist Champ) & Utami Hayashishita (Future, SWA, & Artist Champ) & Momo Watanabe (Artist Champ) vs Starlight Kid & Arisa Hoshiki (Wonder Champ) & Mayu Iwatani (World Champ)
(referee: Daichi Murayama)

Show/Hide Results

Result: Utami Hayashishita pins Starlight Kid with a bridging German suplex
Time: 14:09

Match Thoughts
Very good match. Everyone paired off for the most part throughout the match: AZM with Starlight Kid, Hayashishita with Hoshiki, and Watanabe with Iwatani. All the pairings were very entertaining, and that made for a very good match. There wasn’t a lot of chaos. There were some breakdowns, but the action usually got back to one on one fairly quickly. The match did end with somewhat of a mismatch as Hayashishita took on Starlight Kid for the final few minutes. Starlight Kid did well, but Hayashishita seemed like a tough challenge for her to overcome.


Ring Area
After the match, Momo Watanabe says Mayu Iwatani has looked depressed since Saki Kashima betrayed her last night. Watanabe says if Iwatani shows up to Korakuen Hall like this, then Watanabe will definitely be taking the World of Stardom Title from her.

Utami Hayashishita then says she is going to take Arisa Hoshiki’s Wonder of Stardom Title. Hoshiki says Hayashishita isn’t very good at this and she should show some emotion. Hoshiki then leaves with the rest of Stars.

Momo Watanabe then leads Queen’s Quest and the audience as she closes the show. Bow down to the Queens.


Show Impressions
This was a good show. They’re continuing to build nicely to Korakuen Hall without really giving anything away.

Match of the Night
Queen’s Quest vs Stars (main event)
I really enjoyed the Oedo Tai versus Stars as well, but I think the main event was a bit better overall.
