    yeah her vs satomura and nakajima were fun. Idk. I guess NJPW on top of other male promotions have been killing it in terms of match quality that the women haven't really stood out greatly for me this year.

    Hiroyo4Belts has to be the answer at this point.

    It has been a pretty weak year for the girls unfortunately though.

    Toni Storm has been having the most consistently good women's matches I've ever seen in Progress the last few chapters against Candice and Laura Di Matteo. I feel like she'd be my #3 right now before the MYC kicks off. Asuka still firmly #1 at this point.

    Haven't seen Toni's matches outside of Stardom but she's someone that's very polarising. I've seen people praise her, some criticise her, seems like there are people who like her and some who just don't. She has had good matches and some downright bad ones in the company. I've been a bit sour on her since she faced Blue Nikita last year for her SWA belt. The ending to that match is just a mess. Storm kicked out at one after taking three consecutive finishers from Nikita, hit her three big moves and won. Was ridiculous and no amount of in kayfabe excuses can explain it away. I also think Toni's promos (in Stardom anyway) are really cringy and not good at all... but you don't really need promo skill to get over with the Stardom fans anyway. Especially if you're a good looking foreigner who uses ass based offence.

    I mean who doesn't like ass based offence? Stardom fans love it and from the Progress showw I've seen with her involved they like it as well. She doesn't always get to wrestle top flight talent in Stardom, that will change in the GP hopefully, but yeah Ed is right she's been pretty money lately. I liked her match with Laura Di Matteo way more than Candice from Progress for sure.

    She wrestles the same people that everyone else does in Stardom. I just, dunno, she's sometimes good and she's sometimes absolutely rotten. It's like for every good performance there's a really shit one just around the corner. And according to some, she's also a contributing factor in why Io Shirai isn't in the WWE since it was her sloppy piledriver that fucked up Io's neck I guess that depends if you believe if that part of their match was a work or not but I think Io said that was when the neck injury happened. But I'm not sure if Io would have had her medical in WWE by then? I assume no.

    I think Toni has a good chance to stand out in the GP, though. But I think KLR might outshine her. They've both definitely got a chance at having some great matches with Kyouna, HZK, Io and Konami in their block. Don't forget the ring technician Mandy Leon too.

    I really can't think of anyone from Stardom to really say is in the running this year. Stardom just hasn't been that entertaining this year compared to other promotions. Hopefully picks it up towards the end of the year.
