    I actually caught Satomura Vs Matsumoto this morning and thought it was really really good. Satomura the GOAT strikes again.

    Yeah most joshi shows that are on tv are clipped to fit in the timeslot they are given. Most shows are over 2 hours but need clipped to fit under. They tend to clip lower card matches to give time to the more important stuff.

    Mika Shirahime is improving big time and her performances against Konami and Hana show that. She's ready to take the next step and I'd much rather she was the one to win the tournament than Hana. Her and Meiko vs Syuri and Shida would be mad fire whilst I'm still not super convinced on Hana. I think her being pushed is very clearly because of her looks... in Stardom, at least. But then again, Stardom is a Joshi company that's main focus is around looks rather than the in ring product for the most part, I'd say. Hana actually works as a face everywhere but Stardom btw so that's why she is completely different. I love Shirahime's hair when she gets into battles, it's amazing. Always kept an eye on her since Zero showed me her match vs Kairi Hojo (as Mika Iwata).

    Stuff with Eiger is usually comedic. KAORU and Emi Sakura are awesome. Sakura founded Ice Ribbon btw.

    Meiko vs Hiroyo is such a fantastic sprint. Really loved the match and Hiroyo continues to have a strong 2017 so far. She's a workhorse and she's been the best Joshi so far. She is representing Oz Academy well and I can't wait for her vs Hashimoto, who I'll mention in a second. Low key Meiko is doing an unbelievable job in making everyone she faces look like a world beater and elevating them. There's such a difference between watching her and watching people like Io and Kairi. Her matches feel like they are less centered around showcasing her talents.

    Shida is Zero's chick bud so I don't think we wanted you to watch for her... (I'm also pretty sure she has something going with Naomichi Marufuji but don't wanna crush Zero). Yes, Shida and Syuri use a SF theme, they're both big fans - Syuri comes out to Sakura's theme from Street Fighter 4 regularly. But the tag team theme is Ryu's theme from Street Fighter 5: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oUn549UmSlw

    Shida and Syuri probably the best Joshi tag team of the year so far tbh with you. Chisako is the smaller chick in the other team and is primarily known as a tag team specialist, she's really good, lost her tag team partner over a year when she retired - was her sister, Sendai Sachiko. They were known as the Jumonji Sisters (that's their surname). Cassandra Miyagi definite weak link in this match but she's not too bad herself. Has a look and character that stands out in Sendai.

    The fact Chihiro Hashimoto only debuted at the end of 2015 is unbelievable, seriously. She's a star in the making and I believe her vs Aja Kong actually got some decent news coverage in Japan too. At least more than what Joshi would get anyway.

    Sendai Girls are doing everything right that Stardom is getting wrong at the minute. Infact, every other Joshi org is pretty much getting it right in terms of booking whilst Stardom are floundering big time. Sendai have built up their rookies incredibly well - just look at Chihiro. Now compare Chihiro Hashimoto to Jungle Kyona. Stardom is sooo centric on making Io and Kairi look good and not elevating anyone else whilst Sendai is elevating everyone it possibly can and not making it the Meiko show. Seriously, it's ridiculous how much better every other promotion is at elevating their rookies compared to Stardom. Kyona should have beat Kairi. But then again, I highly doubt Sendai Girls is that bothered about their top people looking good... whereas Stardom are very obviously concerned with looks over in ring product. If Kyona was elsewhere, she'd be a big player by now. Chihiro is in line to have a big, big year and I have no doubt that the Hiroyo match is going to be great. Oz Academy champ vs Sendai champ. Much more interesting than Io Shirai vs Gaijin McJobberfuck part 24.

    This show also outdrew Kairi/Io by 200 with the circumstances in Kairi/Io's favour too. Stardom's drawing ability is diminishing whilst the ability of other promotions to draw is increasing. And it's because the other promotions are able to build talent up and get intrigue going whilst Stardom are doing the same thing over and over and over and over. I would also assume that promotions like Ice and Sendai having a tendency to not overly sexualise their performers means they appeal to a bit more than just the pervy male audience that Stardom seems to want to hit. But it's probably a non factor. I will be interested in seeing what the Cinderella tourney draws for Stardom. Under 1000 and it's a big bust.


    Enough of my Stardom/Io hate though (even though I still really like the promotion and Io and Kairi).

    What I love about Zero and yourself Shake you guys always help me learn something new about the run down with Joshi talent in any promotion I watch. If I keep getting chances to see Sendai I'm down to watch it, OZ too if that company is good like this one. So the ladies like Street Fighter, perfect way to get the fellas together and let us all play together with our dates.
