First of all: thank you for all the ice Ribbon results you've been providing us!  *approve

then, I have a question: I always read MakAto in your Ice Ribbon results, while everywhere else the girl's name is written MakOto. Which one is right?

Post by: windscorpion on February 08, 2009, 10:29:03 AM
Dunno habit probably, the first translator i used probably used Makato and it stuck from there!

It should be Makoto but habits die hard   *freeze

Alot of people don't like Ice Ribbon. They consider it play fighting and not real wrestling. Also, they run shows almost everyday it seems.

I haven't tried to keep up with Ice Ribbon since windscorpion can't do it anymore, but I'll make an exception since I want to be a completist with the Golden Week results.  I don't have times or most of the finishers yet.  Some names may be wrong.  I can't imagine Hotta vs anyone in Ice Ribbon being anything but incredibly dull and tedious.

So, would you call Ice Ribbon a kind of developmental territory, like watching FCW here?  Or is it just really, really low budget?  What's its story -- I have seen a little on TEH Evil, and it seems like the crowds are nonexistent and the girls are about 12. . .
Title: Re: Ice Ribbon
Post by: DANgerous K on May 04, 2009, 07:34:27 AM
Emi Sakura (Emi Motokawa) started Ice Ribbon as an after school club for young girls (it started under a different name but I cant remember it).  It's basically like Girl Scouts with lots of wrestling rather than selling cookies or something.  Most of the crowd are family and friends watching the matches and the wrestling is mostly rookie style with lots of repetitions and cradles.  Often, especially form Neo and the younger set, women came in to wrestle on shows with the younger girls but even then the matches are mostly simple with comedy moments.  It appears that Emi started expanding last year, taking on some older idol type girls for whatever reason so they might be trying to become something more than they started over the following years.

Thanks for the info!  So, wow, they really are as young as they look.  I suppose in watching it one might later recognize a new young idol starlet, but otherwise, there's just so much else to follow. . .

Some of the strange matchups are worth checking out like the mixed tags with Riho
Title: Re: Ice Ribbon
Post by: Fanboy on August 11, 2009, 08:58:28 AM
Not my favorite promotion, but I figured their first Korakuen Hall show deserved a thread.  They seem to have taken a bit of a more serious turn, as it's less little kids play-fighting on mats with the introduction of the older idol types and now a MMA fighter turned pro wrestler (the debuting Mika Nagano).

I'm sure this show will make PUNQ's head explode.  Does anyone know if Aoi Kizuki is ever gonna wrestle again?  I know she was having headaches a few months back and was pulled to have that checked out. 

Riho vs Ramu-chan is obviously JMOTYC.  Not sure if Makiba & Ishino are ready for a semi-main event singles match at Korakuen.

Exciting news, especially for Kori.  The open spot in the opening match is being filled by Mai Ichii.  Mai will also be joining Ice Ribbon and participating in both puroresu and MMA, after having been away from wrestling since leaving Ito Dojo about a year ago.  I guess Emi is really trying to pump up the credibility of the roster, as Mai is the 3rd MMA fighter (Emi Fujino and Mika Nagano) that will be part of the group.

If I recall correctly, wasn't Mai a part of that "Gtkn" group that was sort of the precursor of Ice Ribbon?

I am very surprised that Ice Ribbon is going right for Korakuen hall and not doing more shows at Itabashi Green hall. Or doing some shin kiba or  shin juku face. There normal attedance is not even better than wave. They seem to be pulling out all the stops on this one though. They took over S arena the other night.... looked like AKB48 or something invading... Now looks like they are giving a way a cash prize now! I hope it works out for them. The main event should bring in some people along with fuuka, so could be big. Maybe wave will follow....

Hey all just saw the Ice Ribbon show at Korakuen Hall. Was a big crowd. Not quite a sell out with some empty seats. Probably begger than the Neo Summer Stampede. Good show. All the wrestlers went into the stands and thanked every one and shaked hands. I got Io and Fukka(Yes!) Never seen that before. It was great. I am on to the Wave show at Shinjuku Face.
Title: Re: Ice Ribbon
Post by: Fanboy on August 23, 2009, 09:00:17 AM
I haven't attempted to do results on the numerous small shows that Ice Ribbon does, but this was their biggest show ever.  Between the idol girls who came in from the 3 Count movie last year, and the newly recruited MMA fighters Mika Nagano & Emi Fujino (along with Mai Ichii returning to pro wrestling), it seems that Emi is really trying to make it more than just little girls doing faux fisties.  They even had new warmups. 

I guess Makoto is the ace, now, as she wins the Ice Ribbon title and substituted in the opener for the injured Hikari Minami.  Emi got buried with banners.  They had Aoi Kizuki out after the main event.  I had announced earlier that she had been released, but now they are wording it as an "indefinite absence".  I guess Emi will bring her back if she ever gets medical clearance from the headaches.

I think my new Ice Ribbon policy is to report on stuff outside their small gym/dojo, as they have become a viable promotion.

The main story today is Emi, who has lost quite a bit of weight over the past couple of years, has finally gotten just below 60 kg (weighed in at 59.6 kg) and is now eligible for the Ice Ribbon singles title, which has a 60 kg weight limit.  She takes the title away from Makoto.  I'm really not sure I like this booking, as it's already well-established and obvious that Emi is way ahead of everyone else in the promotion and doesn't need the title to let us know that.

Hopefully this is more than just a little ego trip (she does look pretty good  *Oni*).  It would make sense if they eventually build up Mai Ichii or one of the new MMA fighters as a viable challenger, or maybe Makoto will continue improving and eventually beat her teacher.

Why, Emi-san, WHY?! *livid

After the vast improvement Makoto has undergone, you just had to take her belt away. I question the basis of this booking as well.

You're right about Nikkan, Eivion. I peeved when she executed a European Clutch, of all things.
Title: Re: Ice Ribbon
Post by: Sabrina the Teenage Cracker on October 14, 2009, 09:18:02 AM
It has to do with her gimmick.. She and and Yoneyama have a HOLD ALL TEH BELTS IN JOSHI RESU gimmick, so Emi went out of her way to lose weight so she could add another title to her waist. Now she and Yoneyama are tied in their amount of belts. I guess this might come to a head for one of them challenging for either the NEO titles or the JWP title. Hell it'd be hilarious if Yone won the JWP openweight title and Emi won the NEO Double Titles, but because it's a double title Emi technically has more belts than Yone and they could feud based solely on that...I'd seriously LMAO at that.

The main thing here is that Mai Ichii injured her ankle (might just be an angle) and was replaced by Haruyama, of all people.  After another defense by Emi, she challenged Kayoko for the JWP title.  Kayoko said something along the lines of that Emi should stay in the under 60 kg weight class, but the challenge was accepted and will happen at JWP's Shinjuku FACE show on 12/6.

Kaori Yoneyama was scheduled for the show but missed it-Ice Ribbon posted a news item saying it was due to a head injury suffered at yesterday's JWP event. She was to have worked the 3rd match, I believe she was to have teamed with Emi and they replaced her with Riho.
Kaori is not scheduled for the next show-Sunday at Ice Ribbon School-but is to be on Monday's show at Osaka Minami Move On Arena, she & Emi are to make their V1 defense of the Ice Ribbon Tag Team Titles against Kazumi Shimouma & Hamuko Hoshi.

Azumi Hyuga beat Emi Sakura in 18:03. Looks like Azumi pinned Emi with the Gannosuke Clutch.

Another DVD is out, this one has 2 recent shows although, in numerical show sequence, they skipped show #135. It's 134 & 136. Odd...but 136 had one of the two recent Sakura-Hyuga matches. Hint hint. Anyway, today's results from the Ice Ribbon School:
They claimed 75 paid.

Mai Ichii beat Chii Tomiya in 7:38.

Riho beat Hikari Minami in 7:23.

Miyako Matsumoto beat Hikaru Shida & Tsukasa Fujimoto in a 3-way in 7:56 by pinning Shida.

Kazumi Shimouma & Hamuko Hoshi beat Makoto & Haruna Akagi in 17:32. Shimouma pinned Akagi.

Kinda odd that Miyako got the title win. Wonder if Emi Sakura's just giving the muscle venus girls the Haruka title reigns of giving them a title just so they won't leave. Either way, as much as I love Miyako, I hope she's not the one walking into Golden Ribbon with the title.

Riho has a lot of energy being a loli, so I wouldn't be surprised if she could go that long.

The only problem would be...either there was a lot of rest holds or like...they'd just have 2 girls going for huge stretches and tagging out not to be seen for a long time, which in that case singles matches would have sufficed. It could have been Riho's team bumping for Emi's team for the entire team also

Chii Tomiya beat Tsukushi in 4:43.

Makoto beat Hikaru Shida in 8:13. As a result, Makoto will be the first challenger for NEW ICEx60 Singles Champion Miyako Matsumoto.

Miyako Matsumoto beat Triangle Ribbon Champion Riho & Kazumi Shimouma in a 3-way in 10:03 by pinning Riho to win the title. Miyako becomes the 2nd Triangle Ribbon Champion.

GENTARO (Freedoms) & Emi Sakura beat Ikuto Hidaka (ZERO1) & Ken Ohka (DDT/Union Pro) in 4 seconds. Sakura pinned Ohka. Seriously. Which led to...

Title: Re: Ice Ribbon
Post by: Makabe Sword Justice on March 22, 2010, 05:15:18 AM
It's likely part of a grand scheme-Mizunami can't hold it much longer (title is limited to wrestlers with no more than 5 years experience), Shimouma is probably near if not over the age limit for it should it still exist (it's ended the reigns of Candy Okutsu and Ran Yu-Yu in the past, Shimouma is 32), so maybe drop it here, pass it off once or twice in Ice Ribbon, then someone drops it back to Misaki Ohata, all is well.

Also at today's show, Makoto earned the next ICEx60 Singles Championship title shot by beating Hikaru Shida. She'll face Miyako Matsumoto at a date TBA.
Speaking of Miyako, she's now a double champion. She beat Triangle Ribbon Champion Riho & Shimouma in a 3-way to become the new champion (she pinned Riho).

Update on "date TBA" for Miyako-Makoto: Saturday.

Nanae Takahashi & Riho beat Tsukasa Fujimoto & Hikari Minami in 13:03. Riho pinned Fujimoto.

Hikaru Shida vs. Chii Tomiya

Hikari Minami & Makoto vs. Riho & Aika Ando

Nanae Takahashi vs. Tsukasa Fujimoto

DDT Extreme Champion GENTARO (Freedoms) vs. Miyako Matsumoto for the title. Rules TBA on event day.
For those unfamiliar with it, the DDT Extreme Championship is always contested for in matches with some kind of stipulations, and they tend to be just a tad unusual-not just your typical hardcore matches but the more absurd like only DDT can do. I'm thinking that if GENTARO drops it, Miyako will somehow lose it to none other than Danshoku Dieno.

I certainly don't, in fact I like her (but as most people know I am an absolute sucker for Japanese girls/women and their irresistable cuteness/sexiness) but from reading some other posts here it seems that either some people don't like her or don't agree with how she's being handled the last month or so. I would expect GENTARO to retain the title but if not, that's the 3rd title Miyako will have won in about 2 weeks. That doesn't sound very puro-like to me.

I hope she does too, admittedly I'm a little surprised they didn't do what they've done for the last few champions first-have them successfully defend against the gatekeeper-Makoto. Both Tsukasa Fujimoto & Miyako Matsumoto defended against Makoto first (at least Miyako did, Tsukasa defended against Hamuko Hoshi before getting Makoto), but apparently Riho specifically asked for Emi as her first challenger.
On Ice Ribbon's blog (part of their website) they also posted a picture of Riho holding up what appears to be a handwritten letter from her mother that was given to her after today's event:

Not yet. I imagine it'll be a combination of both their own girls and outsider participation. They'll almost certainly bring Nanae Takahashi in, maybe some of the other semi-regular outsiders (Kaori Yoneyama, Natsuki*Taiyo, maybe Masa Takanashi, others).

Well, I just found out that Kasai will be in attendance next Sunday at Itabashi Green Hall! Miyako asketh & she shall receiveth, so originally I would've said no way. But who knows...anyway, the full card for 4/17 at Itabashi Green Hall:
Emi Sakura, Natsuki*Taiyo & Mai Ichii vs. Hikari Minami, Hikaru Shida & Tsukasa Fujimoto
Triangle Tibbon Champion Miyako Matsumoto vs. Riho vs. Nanae Takahashi in a 3-way for the title
GENTARO (Freedoms) & Aika Ando vs. Hamuko Hoshi & Makoto
JWP Jr. Champion & POP Champion Ryo Mizunami (Sendai Girls) vs. Kazumi Shimouma for the title

Also, Emi Sakura has begun posting her plans and efforts to get back down to 60kg in time for her ICEx60 Singles Title match on 5/3 against Riho. As of today it appears she will need to lose 8 kg (17.6 pounds!) between now & 5/3.

Title: Re: Ice Ribbon

Close to that, she has roughly 23 days to do it so she's got to lose about 3/4 pound a day. I wouldn't call it impossible, let's not forget that Hamuko Hoshi had to lose something like 12-13 pounds in a span of not even 2 weeks to get her shot against Fujimoto.

Well, it was either that or she drop it back to Riho, who's already focused on facing Emi for the ICEx60 Singles Title at Korakuen (if Emi makes weight of course). But Nanae came up short when Riho became the first champion, so I guess it's an excuse to put another strap on her. Or they're burying Miyako just as quickly as they built her up.

I like the card so far, and there will be more added before event time. Somehow I sense that the odd couple (Miyako & Kasai) will win the tag team title match or there will be a riot. And I'll go a little further-whoever gets the pinfall will do so after a Pearl Harbor Splash. And anyone else think Kasai will bring a couple of flourescent lighttubes with him?

They announced over the weekend that NEO High Speed Champion Natsuki*Taiyo vs. Tsukasa Fujimoto for the title has been added to GOLDEN RIBBON on 5/3, as well as confirming the 3-way International Ribbon Tag Team Title match. That's 5 matches so far. I'm 50-50 on a title change here but leaning towards Natsuki retaining.

She currently works at Ice Ribbon School events as a stand department manager. No in-ring debut date set yet.

The promotion announced that they are changing their website's URL. The old one (ice-ribbon.ne07.jp) still works for now but they are encouraging people to use the new one:

As an "important announcement" from Emi Sakura at the end of today's event, it was announced that they will return to Korakuen on 9/23. Based on translation it seems this is being done with the hopes of continuing to expand Ice Ribbon.
Quote
[aisuriho] ゙ [n] 178 (school match) lastly, it was announced that September 23rd (Sunday of the wooden autumnal equinox) [aisuriho] ゙ [n] Korakuen conference Vol3 is held from 12 o'clock as importance announcement from the Sakura smile.

Well, you got me thear.
Still, that was 1 match in over 2 years, before that you have to back to 2007 before you'll find her on any BJW shows (I don't count the "Hardcore Ladies" 1 shot deal) besides her randomly popping up to work ring crew sometimes.

Quote
She's also listed as a roster member on Big Japan's English website.

Their English site list a # of other people who haven't been in BJW in years and even when they were they were still just freelancers not part of the actual roster.

The Japanese site is a much better resource.

If you click the fighter button at the top you get re-directed here http://www.bjw.co.jp/vm/senshu-list.html (http://www.bjw.co.jp/vm/senshu-list.html) which is a much more up to date list. Though they re-designed that page so everyone's jumbled together now on that page which sucks.

You used to get sent here http://www.bjw.co.jp/page/fighter.html (http://www.bjw.co.jp/page/fighter.html) (hit stop when the page loads so you don't get re-directed) which in addition to being up to date, also breaks everyone down into neat little groups of "guys who actually work for us" and "guys who don't but we still book a lot"

The final card for GOLDEN RIBBON on Monday has been announced:
"Walnut" debut match: Hikari Minami, Tsukushi & Sayaka Obihiro vs. Minori Makiba, Hikaru Shida & "walnut"
Kiyoko Ichiki Return Match: Kiyoko Ichiki & Hamuko Hoshi vs. "Masa Takanashi Child" (DDT/Union Pro) & Chii Tomiya
Mai Ichii vs. Emi Fujino. Match is 2 3-minute rounds. Both may wear MMA gloves (open-finger gloves)
Kota Ibushi (DDT) & Makoto vs. Munenori Sawa (BattlARTS) & Bambi (K-DOJO)
NEO High Speed Champion Natsuki*Taiyo vs. Tsukasa Fujimoto for the title
International Ribbon Tag Team Champions Nanae Takahashi & Kazumi Shimouma vs. Jun Kasai (Freedoms) & Miyako Matsumoto vs. GENTARO (Freedoms) & Keita Yano (BattlARTS) in a 3-way for the titles
ICEx60 Singles Champion Riho vs. Emi Sakura for the title. If Emi does not make the 60kg weight limit this will be a NON-TITLE match

As far as attendance goes, I'll put the over/under aka my guess for what they'll draw at 1200. They're pretty much the only event in Tokyo Monday outside of the NEO HOF Inductions, New Japan does have a major show but they're out in Fukuoka. The star power from other promotions should help draw in more fans plus having Riho headline the event should bring in more younger fans.

Also, no profile of "walnut" yet on Ice Ribbon's website. Maybe after Monday.

Some last-minute notes before GOLDEN RIBBON:
I seem to recall someone asking for a picture of "walnut"...Ice Ribbon put one up today:
(http://iceribbon.com/blogbox/11036_0_all.jpg)
That's her. Really. She's only 10. Her official debut comes in a couple hours.
One other last-minute development before the event: Haruna Akagi is now out a long time due to injury. Loose translation of comments from Akagi:
Quote
“For a long time it is neglected, it is Akagi.
, but this time, it destroyed physical condition and the day off could point to the tournament and it is to have received the doctor and when you consult it came to the point of operation and medical treatment being needed.
Still, it is not to know when the tournament is possible before everyone, but because it is the intention be sure of returning we ask may!”


Tomorrow, at Korakuen as for the tournament however it is not, it comes to the meeting place in the stand second long separation!

Results from GOLDEN RIBBON:
They claimed 895 paid.
"Walnut" Debut Match: In an Elimination match, Hikari Minami, Tsukushi & Sayaka Obihiro beat Minori Makiba, Hikaru Shida & "Walnut" in 9 minutes. Order of elimination: Obihiro, Makiba, Shida, Tsukushi, Walnut. Minami survives.

Kiyoko Ichiki Return Match: Kiyoho Ichiki & Hamuko Hoshi beat Masa Takanashi child (DDT/Union Pro) & Chii Tomiya in 10:09. Ichiki pinned Tomiya.

In a 2 3-minute rounds match where both fighters could wear MMA gloves, Mai Ichii vs. Emi Fujino went to a draw.

Munenori Sawa (BattlARTS) & Bambi (K-DOJO) beat Kota Ibushi (DDT) & Makoto in 11:18. Bambi pinned Makoto.

NEO High Speed Champion Natsuki*Taiyo beat Tsukasa Fujimoto in 16:44 to retain the title. V2 for Natsuki.

Jun Kasai & Miyako Matsumoto beat International Ribbon Tag Team Champions Nanae Takahashi & Kazumi Shimouma and GENTARO & Keita Yano in a 3-way in 19:53, when Miyako pinned Shimouma, to win the titles. Kasai & Matsumoto become the 10th International Ribbon Tag Team Champions.

Emi Sakura beat ICEx60 Singles Champion Riho in 15:49 to win the title. Sakura wins the title for the 2nd time and becomes the 8th ICEx60 Singles Champion.
She now joins Minoru Suzuki on my list of wrestlers I now officially hate/dislike.

I'd call the attendance rather disappointing, I was predicting at least 1200. Maybe people stayed home to watch TV (New Japan ran a PPV in Fukuoka today).

Maybe a lot of people don't really want to pay for a show when the main event has no chance of being a main event quality title match.  Nothing against Riho, she's about as good as a kid can be, but that's more an Itabashi Green Hall caliber main event.  Emi/Nanae or similar would be better for Korakuen.

I thought they had a good chance of being one of the few to crack the 1000 barrier but no way in hell they were drawing that much. No joshi companies gotten a crowd that big at k-hall for a non retirement show in almost a year

Well, I doubt there's many cross over fans between New Japan and ICE Ribbon but so many other big shows happening this week could def have played a factor.

More likely this played a bigger factor. From the start I always thought it was a gutsy move to go with this on top as it's not a match that's going to appeal to a large amount of casual fans

My thoughts with the attendance and the main event would be that both it and the card as a whole would draw a good number of female fans as well as younger fans. I certainly didn't expect 2000+ but considering they did over 1000 last year at Korakuen I felt 1200 was a reasonable target. That and some of the names on the card (Kasai, Sawa, Yano, Ichiki).

Quote

In the grand scheme of things this was a pretty bad draw but they only barely got over 1000 before so it's not a HUGE drop from last time.

And hey, this show still freakin outdrew JWP with Nanae/Haruyama on top

Yano and Ichiki are nothing name wise. Sawa and Kasai attract interest more in their respective promotions than a joshi show where they likely will play it safe.

Joshi doesn't draw such numbers w/o retirement or something really big happening. Any time they make 800+ its an ok thing (especially since it doesn't take much to make a profit at Korakuen).

Apparently Miyako did a bunch of Kasai spots around Korakuen Hall. I don't know if she jumped of the balcony, but apparently she was crying through most of the match out of sheer fear.

http://blog.livedoor.jp/torinosu_singh/ (http://blog.livedoor.jp/torinosu_singh/) posted some photos of her doing the Korakuen Hall South side stair archway table dive.

He says she was the MVP, and after that spot she got a "She's hardcore! She's hardcore!" chant.

Under 1,000 is disappointing but that number looks to be enough to make a profit. Korakuen Hall is starting to offer cheaper packages by blocking off seats since their rental prices are so outrageous. Not sure if this was one of those shows. Also you'd think Kasai would have pushed them over the top.

Of course, it's Golden Week so fans have to pick & choose from so much wrestling or risk spending a fortune.

I noticed this last Winter, but Minami Hikari is turning into a total hottie. Her body is amazing and she's really tall. I think she's going to be a great one going forward.

Looks like a bunch of new costume debuts.

Ichii Mai's MMA style costume looks good on her.

i think it s a good number for severals reasons.
one it s because it s golden week in japan,they do not work that week.when you know how hard those people work in their daily life we can imagine they want to travel a little or doing something different that they use to do normally.
then,when you know the number of wrestling that there is this week in japan,well,people must choose and can't go everywhere.
there was a big ajpw show with hama vs suzuki , today there was a huge njpw event with nakamura vs makabe , this week end the first jr tag league , wednesday the dgate dead or alive ppv and i m sure there a lot of others like in noah,where they already had the end of the global league last week end.....
so,imo,it s quite a good number for joshi promotion which is not the most important.

I'd assume the deathmatch aficionados aren't buying Ice Ribbon tickets, even if Jun Kasai is there, because they know there's not gonna be enough gore at an Ice Ribbon show.  Big Japan's 15th anniversary is tomorrow at Yokohama Bunka Gym, so I'd assume the BJW fans are going to that show instead.

My understanding is that this show is getting near-live coverage, so it should be on the Internetz in a few days.

I prefer fancier gear, however the gear really shows off her amazing body.

I was thinking the same exact thing about Miyako's gear

I prefer Makoto with the bare midriff so you can see that body, not that weird geometric print trying to make her look like she has an hourglass shape. Also I don't like the long sleeves.

In that outfit you can only see her stomach, the rest is bulky from the gear. But again I don't care about seeing her body and I like her anime-esque gear better.

This is the newest roster member, Kurumi (aka "Walnut"). Her profile has now been added to Ice Ribbon's website.

Bio:
Age: 10
Height: 4'9 1/2"
Weight: 94.8 pounds/43 kg
Proud Skill: Body press, corner tackle
Player of yearning: Emi Sakura, Nanae Takahashi

Reportedly she's looked really good in her first "real" matches. She's now the only elementary school pro wrestler.

At the very least they've got the market cornered on cute young girls in wrestling. Now if they could just pick up some who are at least, say, 16...they're going to get people like me in serious trouble, haha. And I'm also impressed with how her & Tsukushi have done early on, nice to see they're not getting buried nonstop in matches-Tsukushi lasted until the end of that 6 woman elimination at Golden Ribbon and got a couple of eliminations, which really impressed me.

They've always been affiliated with NEO but it's definitely quite seperate.  They started off as a kind of after school thing for young girls run by Sakura but it's organically grown beyond that point.  I think that their recent move to their own web domain, rather than being part of the NEO one is a sure sign that they've grown beyond any kind of connection that would mean that they are affected by NEO's closing.

The fact that the NEO girls and Koda are saying that they never really built anything for the future in their ten years also shows that Ice Ribbon isnt part of NEO because Ice Ribbon definitely has done.
Title: Re: Ice Ribbon
Post by: Makabe Sword Justice on May 10, 2010, 02:22:02 PM
I don't think the web domain thing is an issue, they weren't the only promotion who's part of that ne07.jp domain (the independent promotion Freedoms-which Jun Kasai is part of-is also part of it). Even without any affiliations I think Ice Ribbon has positioned itself well for the future-a nice talent roster, they're not overly dependent on outsiders, and they have what I think is a good schedule of events (run at the school twice a week, go to Itabashi Green Hall or Osaka Minami Move On Arena about once a month, 1-2 Korakuen events a year).

Only because 99% of the time they only run tiny tiny buildings. No way they could draw for K-hall or any other big show with just their in house crew.

I'm sure they'd be fine without them for the smaller shows but even for the school events they still usually bring in 1 or 2 outside wrestlers if for no other reason then to give the kids someone to learn from.

They actually did an outsider-free event last Saturday at the school, only their girls. They're bringing in more for their event tomorrow, they posted the card:
Emi Sakura vs. Sayaka Obihiro
Hamuko Hoshi vs. Chii Tomiya
Chou-un Shiryu (Independent/Freelancer) vs. Keita Yano (BattlARTS)
Hiroyo Matsumoto & Tsukasa Fujimoto vs. Makoto & Hikaru Shida

I expect that 3rd match to be a comedy match having seen some of Shiryu's prior matches.

Ice Ribbon participation announced by DDT for Saturday's (5/16) Union Pro event (Kitasenju Theater 1010):
Miyako Matsumoto & GENTARO vs. Seiya Morohashi & Cherry
Emi Sakura & Masa Takanashi vs. Ricky Fuji & Hirosi (?)

Emi announced that she will have a press conference on 5/29 2PM where she will announced a new women's pro wrestling company. She was very cryptic on TWITTER where she announced it.

LADY'S RING mobile covered it and Kakutolog has what info there is including the Tweets.

Makoto retweeted her asking if the ICE RIBBON wrestlers will be involved. She responded that their is "zero staff" and "zero wrestlers" and that she doesn't have a logo though a name was decided.

NEO's President Koda also tweeted that he's anxious for this press conference as he has no idea what to expect.

She posted "全国へ届け女子プロレス" (zenkoku he todoke joshi puroresu) which is "country-wide notification of women's pro wrestling."

Somewhat loose translation of that announcement today via Ice Ribbon's website:
Quote
This day (2010 May 29 Sunday), from 14 o'clock at ice ribbon school.New group '19 o'clock launching of business press conference of woman professional wrestling' was done.

New group '19 o'clock as for woman professional wrestling', the number of tournaments all like woman of mature stage and
Delivering woman professional wrestling to also the district establishment to purpose,
Obihiro distinct (Sayaka Obihiro) you debut on April 29th this year transfers and serves representation.

It plans the annual 150 tournament, all tournament depends on USTREAM (u stream)
It is broadcast live and directs to the entire world and dispatches woman professional wrestling.
* At present time becomes the woman professional wrestling group only of the relay which does not do the usual conference.

The new member it becomes the alone group which passes, but
Her “last year, by himself seeing professional wrestling in Hokkaido, as determined going up to the capital,
We would like to deliver woman professional wrestling to the many people more of various places”,
Furthermore it makes the thinking that “we would like to do more many tournaments”, determination.
You think that the ice ribbon would like to keep uplift backup.

This day from 19 o'clock the action the pre- launching of business game which includes experiment,
June 1st (Tuesday) launching of business game is done from 19 o'clock.

Calling the new group, under present conditions ice ribbon post
The conference management with the volunteer member is center.
In the future, the member who presently does practice with the professional wrestling classroom and the like
(Debut) we would like also to play.
In the near future, only on Internet the player et. al who cannot do to see,
Perhaps it is born.Tournament day principle, every week relays from 19 of the fire wooden gold o'clock.
* There is fluctuation depending upon circumstances such as conference day and time.
The tournament, every the conference 1 tournament, planning program air time 30 minutes.
(The participation player [tsuito] seeing the speech which is done after the playing, thought and reflection are included.It changes with circumstance.)

As the ice ribbon was called the woman professional wrestling of mixi shot,
19 o'clock as for woman professional wrestling you acknowledge as “woman professional wrestling of USTREAM departure”
If support it can receive, with you think.

As for the staff, the Sakura smile, Makoto, the capital shrine [chi] it is and it becomes start with 4 people who are included,
It plays with the same member, the referee, does relay business (camera) in sound & ring analog & the real condition.
(The tournament compared to, USTREAM relay is worry, but if you can watch over warmly, you know.)

Simultaneously, conference entered athlete, real condition & explanation of broadcast, referee and photographing staff etc,
You become the volunteer of all no guaranties, but because we collect the cooperator of the industry authorized personnel, we ask may.
Today's actually Saturday, not Sunday...anyway...at first glance sounds like some kind of internet promotion.

My understanding is that this "new" group called 19pro is just going to stream live Ice Ribbon matches on USTREAM.  I think the idea is that they will stream matches on certain days starting at 19:00 Tokyo time (which is 6AM Eastern/5AM Central/4AM Mountain/3AM Pacific for the North Americans).

I think they streamed their "pre-raising an army" show, with a match between Sayaka Obihiro and Kazumi Shimouma.  I didn't see it and don't know if there is any way to if you weren't watching live.

Makoto won. Before the match they showed some parts of 5/29 press conference and a little interview with Obihiro. Match was so-so, GENTARO and Sakura did the commentary. After the match all girls did a dropkick to the rookie (Makoto simply killed her), i think as "punishment" due to the defeat. At the end both girls came to answer to some questions. They made the name of Nanae, probably(i don't know japanese) the next challenger of Obihiro will be her.

They had nearly 800 viewers this time.

One clip seems to be Emi talking and, towards the end, singing? What's up right now is about 1 hour 45 minutes' worth of Emi talking about whatever.

They now also have a special page with all the Twitter feeds they have in one place (DDT has had one of these for a while), it has all the talent's feeds right there (Emi, Tsukasa Fujimoto, Hikaru Shida, Miyako Matsumoto, Aika Ando, Yumiko Inoue, News)

is Jun Kasai a draw for Ice Ribbon? don't get me wrong, i know that Ice Ribbon has a PG demographic (i can't believe i said "PG")

Kazumi Shimouma beat Triangle Ribbon Champion Nanae Takahashi & Makoto in a 3-way in 11:53 by pinning Makoto to win the title. Shimouma becomes the 4th Triangle Ribbon Champion.

is Makoto not allowed to have repeat reigns? or they're trying to make it look like the push is not of the moon kind for Makoto

Title: Re: Ice Ribbon
Post by: Makabe Sword Justice on July 31, 2010, 05:54:48 AM
If I remember correctly, the main reason Kasai is showing up is Miyako and her undying obsession with the hardcore one. But it should also be noted that before the title match, Kasai did put Tomiya over-albeit in a match where she only needed a 1 count to win. (And the next title match may be PG-13: Tomiya wanted and got a rematch but Command Bolshoi can't work the match date due to a scheduling issue, so they chose Isami Kodaka-who also does death matches in Big Japan-to be Tomiya's partner)

For the Triangle match, I think Nanae wanted to drop the title without getting pinned...and besides, Makoto is apparently Ice Ribbon's Kaori Yoneyama.

I too was happy to see Minami win the title, now hopefully she doesn't have to lose it right back to Emi in a month like Riho did. But if she were to drop it right away I'm gonna make another of my out-on-a-limb predictions as to who wins it...Tsukushi. And I don't just say that because she's so cute. She & Kurumi will both be something.

Also, Ice Ribbon will be participating in a special series of events on 10/10 & 10/11 at Sapporo Teisen Hall, including a special 5-brand co-produced event with Big Japan, DDT, K-DOJO & Freedoms. On 10/10 they'll run their big event on their own, then the 5-brand on 10/11.

The first matches for 9/23 at Korakuen were just announced, it seems there will be a Sendai Girls vs. Ice Ribbon theme for the event:
Emi Sakura vs. Meiko Satomura
Sendai Girls vs. Ice Ribbon Elimination Match (I believe): Ryo Mizunami, DASH Chisako, Sendai Sachiko, Hiren & Kagetu vs. TBA

From Ice Ribbon's website:
Quote
“The village village player and the tournament would like to do debut 15th anniversary as selfish,”, that Sakura declares after the August Itabasi conference and on the ring.
Entering negotiation, because acknowledgment is obtained from [sendaigaruzu], it became actualization.

I doubt Miyako will be in this match; they'll use her for comedy and/or mixed tag hijinks.  I'd expect more like Shimouma and/or Obihiro.

Miyako was Icex60 champ before.

But I"m hoping for something like Makoto, Hikaru Shida, Fujitmoto, RIho, and Tsukushi.

I would say Chii, but I'm assuming she'll be defending the tag titles.

Aika only seems to do 1-2 dates a month now, her acting career seems to keep her quite busy with her TV work and movies (she's already starred in one movie this year), and now it appears she's also doing music. I did some research and it appears she's part of a massive girl group that has, by my count, 21 members. She did her first release in March and maybe another one in July.

Looks like they're going to start determining their team that will face the Sendai Girls on 9/23 at Saturday's event based on the card:
Elimination Captain's Fall Matches (No time limit):
Tsukasa Fujimoto (C), Miyako Matsumoto & Sayaka Obihiro vs. Hikaru Shida (C), Chii Tomiya & Mai Ichii
Kazumi Shimouma (C), Hikari Minami & Kurumi vs. Makoto (C), Emi Sakura & Riho
Match 1 Winning Team vs. Match 2 Winning Team. The captain of the winning team will be the captain of the Ice Ribbon team for the 9/23 match. So we know right away that the first team member is one of Fujimoto, Shida, Shimouma or Makoto. I'm going to guess the rather obvious the way things have been going-Shimouma.

The other match on the card is Kaori Yoneyama vs. Tsukushi.

Results from today's Ice Ribbon School event, which will help set up their team to face the Sendai Girls on 9/23 at Korakuen:
They claimed 103 paid (full house/sellout).
Captains Fall Elimination Matches (when a captain is beaten, the match ends and that team automatically loses):
Tsukasa Fujimoto (C), Miyako Matsumoto & Sayaka Obihiro beat Hikaru Shida (C), Chii Tomiya & Mai Ichii. Ichii pinned Obihiro in 4:42, Tomiya pinned Matsumoto in 5:19, Fujimoto pinned Shida in 8:12. Fujimoto team advances.
Emi Sakura (C) & Riho beat Kazumi Shimouma (C), Hikari Minami & Kurumi. Riho beat Kurumi in 3:41, Minami DQ'd in 5:28. Because of this DQ, Sakura & Riho advance.

Kaori Yoneyama beat Tsukushi in 8:58.

Captains Fall Tournament Finals: Tsukasa Fujimoto (C), Miyako Matsumoto & Sayaka Obihiro beat Emi Sakura (C) & Riho in 8:12 to win the tournament. Obihiro pinned Sakura after countering La Magistral. Now this was to mean Fujimoto would captain the Ice Ribbon team on 9/23...or would she? One big thing was missing from the event today: Makoto. Unmentioned circumstances. She was to have been the captain of her team (Emi & Riho). Makoto mentioned it in her daily "good morning news" post on Ice Ribbon's website but wasn't very specific-it does not appear to be injury-related though. It appears to be the first Ice Ribbon event she's ever missed. The promotion offered refunds as a result but based on attendance (the announcement was made about 3 hours before the event), I'm guessing not many took them. So it was just Sakura & Riho on their team. Fujimoto did not accept the captain spot right away, she was not satisfied with the Makoto defaulting. Determination match between Fujimoto & Makoto on a future event will decide the Ice Ribbon team captain.

One spot still TBA. The captain will be either Fujimoto or Makoto-that could be determined at tomorrow's event. The other match hyped is Emi Sakura vs. Meiko Satomura.

Makoto beat Tsukasa Fujimoto in 14:12. As a result, Makoto is the team captain for the Ice Ribbon vs. Sendai Girls 5 vs. 5 match on 9/23 at Korakuen and got to pick the final Ice Ribbon team member...Natsuki*Taiyo.

Expect the header to be updated soon. The match to determine the captain today was won by Makoto and she made the choice today: Natsuki*Taiyo. So it's Makoto, Kazumi Shimouma, Tsukasa Fujimoto, Hikaru Shida & Natsuki*Taiyo vs. the Sendai Girls on 9/23.

Do you know the format of the 5 vs 5 match (captain's fall, elimination tag, gauntlet)?

I'm guessing Natsuki being in this match means Ice Ribbon wins the 5 vs 5 and Meiko beats Emi.
Title: Re: Ice Ribbon
Post by: Makabe Sword Justice on August 28, 2010, 05:15:06 AM
I believe it's elimination and possibly Captain's Fall.

Card updated today for 9/23, this might be the final card and if you missed it yesterday, there was a title change in 19 Pro: Command Bolshoi beat Hikari Minami to win the ICEx60 Singles Title. Looks like Bolshoi could drop it back here...but let's get to the rest of the craziness first:
UWA World Trios Champions, Sea Of Japan 6 Man Tag Team Champions & DDT Jiyugaoka 6 Person Tag Team Champions The Great Kojika, Riho & Mr. 6 vs. Jun Kasai (Freedoms), Jaki Numazawa (Big Japan) & Miyako Matsumoto for the titles
International Ribbon Tag Team Champions Isami Kodaka (DDT/Union Pro) & Chii Tomiya vs. TBA for the titles
ICEx60 Singles Champion Command Bolshoi vs. Hikari Minami for the title
Ice Ribbon vs. Sendai Girls Elimination and possibly Captain's Fall match: Kagetu (C), Ryo Mizunami, Hiren, DASH Chisako & Sendai Sachiko vs. Makoto (C), Natsuki*Taiyo, Hikaru Shida, Kazumi Shimouma & Tsukasa Fujimoto
Meiko Satomura vs. Emi Sakura

If the 10-woman is Captain's Fall, for those unfamiliar with it that means that if the captain (meaning either Kagetu or Makoto) is eliminated at any time, the match is immediately over and that team loses regardless of how many members are left.

I am somewhat intrigued by that trios match...namely that challenger team could be quite the odd love triangle. After all, Jun & Jaki are like blood brothers in Big Japan (they're also the current BJW Tag Team Champions) but now you throw Miyako into the mix...fun fun fun!

Yeah, they updated it after Wednesday's event. Makoto beat Fujimoto to be the captain of the Ice Ribbon team and she picked Natsuki for the spot. Sendai Girls picked Kagetu as their captain. Interesting...the way they've been doing lately I'd have gone with Mizunami.

If I was attempting to analyse it I would probably so that they've done that so that Sendai can lose without Miz having to take a fall, especially as she's a !champ! and everything.

For now, she might not be champ after Saturday because she could lose the JWP Jr. & POP Titles...irony: It would be to Hiren. So either way there's a champ on their team unless they drop the titles to someone else in the next 3 weeks.

Ice Ribbon is participating in a 5-promotion co-produced event on 10/11 at Sapporo Teisen Hall as part of a 2-day event series with K-DOJO, DDT, Big Japan and Freedoms. They announced the 10/11 card today:
Ryuichi Sekine (K-DOJO) & Takumi Tsukamoto (Big Japan) vs. Kamui (Freedoms) & Keisuke Ishii (DDT)

GENTARO (Freedoms) vs. Yukihiro Abe (DDT). There is a special "5 referee" rule.

Chii Tomiya (Ice Ribbon) vs. Antonio Honda (DDT) vs. Ryuji Ito (Big Japan) vs. Jun Kasai (Freedoms) vs. Kengo Mashimo (K-DOJO) in a 5-way ladder match. The other 2/3 of the "hardcore love triangle", Miyako Matsumoto & Jaki Numazawa, may be at ringside to second Kasai.

Sayaka Obihiro (19 Pro) & Bambi (K-DOJO) vs. Yuu Yamagata (K-DOJO) & Hamuko Hoshi (Ice Ribbon). This is supposed to be a matchup of women from Hokkaido but Bambi may be the exception.

Royal Rumble Style Elimination Tag Match: Makoto (Ice Ribbon), HARASHIMA (DDT), Abdullah Kobayashi (Big Japan), Takashi Sasaki (Freedoms) & Makoto Oishi (K-DOJO) vs. Kazumi Shimouma (Ice Ribbon), Yasu Urano (DDT), Daisuke Sekimoto (Big Japan), The Winger (Freedoms) & Yuji Hino (K-DOJO). Presumably Royal Rumble/Battle Royal rules are in effect here (namely meaning over the top rope rules).

9/23 Update: The challengers for International Ribbon Tag Team Champions Isami Kodaka & Chii Tomiya have been revealed: GENTARO & Mai Ichii.

I did some research and it appears she's part of a massive girl group that has, by my count, 21 members. She did her first release in March and maybe another one in July.

Not really, they never have more than 3-4 matches. They probably try to keep them to less than 2 hours. They only do longer shows on the road (5 matches on average for Itabashi and Osaka, more for Korakuen). And don't forget several of their younger talent has to go to school during the week.

Waiting on today's results (3 matches), I'll post them when they're available.

Order of elimination: Makiba by Tomiya at 4:38, Takahashi by Natsuki at 11:45.

Card for the Korakuen Hall show.  Lots of silly titles on the line.  I may not have the names of the indy 6-man titles quite right.  There is a stipulation for Ice Ribbon titles that one loses the title in case of a draw.

Obihiro getting a JWP title shot is ridiculous.  It appears that Yoneyama will be defending twice in one day, as the Ringstars Noodles show is later that day and she is supposed to defend against Misaki Ohata there.  Hopefully no more hair gets lost.

Not sure of a few finishers.  A bad day for Ice Ribbon, as they lose all matches against outsiders.  Obihiro gets squashed by Yoneyama in under 2 minutes and Meiko's officially entered the grumpy old bastard part of her career, as she ripped Emi & Ice Ribbon for being unprofessional.  Riho then confronted Satomura and promised that she'll beat her within the next 3 years.  Good luck with that, kid.  The captain's fall match went all the way, with the two captains being the last two left.  Kagetsu had quite a day, racking up 3 eliminations including the winner over Makoto.  They pretty cleverly got Natsuki, Miz, and Hiren out of the match fairly quickly by having Natsuki grab a hold of Miz & Hiren
on the ring apron and sacrifice herself to get them out, as Fujimoto & Shida knocked all three to the floor with a double dropkick.

If you all are done complaining...I saw most of this happening and I for one think it'll be a good thing for all involved. Sendai's win in the match was pretty much sealed when Makoto became captain, I had a good feeling Emi was jobbing to Meiko, but this will just further the rivalry between the promotions-that kind of stuff is more of what's needed now. And yeah, I figured Obihiro would get squashed.

Riho then confronted Satomura and promised that she'll beat her within the next 3 years.
I'll take that bet.

What doesn't kill you makes you stronger. Anyway...results from today's Ice Ribbon School event:
They claimed 97 paid.
Cherry & Miyako Matsumoto beat Minori Makiba & Hamuko Hoshi in 10:26. Cherry pinned Hoshi.

In a Captains Fall Elimination Match, Riho (C), Hikari Minami, Chii Tomiya & Tsukushi beat Makoto (C), Kazumi Shimouma, Hikaru Shida & Tsukasa Fujimoto in 25:58. Order of elimination: Tsukushi by Shida at 13:24, Shida by Minami at 16 minutes, Fujimoto by Tomiya at 17:49, Tomiya by Shimouma at 19:40, Shimouma by Riho at 34:43, Makoto by Minami at 25:58. Riho & Minami survive. The girls beat the women.

Emi Sakura & Nanae Takahashi beat International Ribbon Tag Team Champions GENTARO & Mai Ichii in 16:32 to win the titles. Sakura & Takahashi become the 13th International Ribbon Tag Team Champions. (Sakura wins titles for the 2nd time, Takahashi wins titles for the 3rd time) Takahashi pinned Ichii after a backdrop. Thus ends the shortest International Ribbon Tag Team Title reign to date yet-just 2 days. The previous record was 2 weeks (Azumi Hyuga & Ran Yu-Yu).

A number of upcoming matches announced today:
Saturday's Ice Ribbon School event will feature the first and last Ice Ribbon appearance of DDT star Muscle Sakai, who is retiring next month. He'll team with Riho to face Emi Sakura & Hikari Mianmi.

The first match for Sapporo Teisen hall on 10/10 is set: NEW International Ribbon Tag Team Champions Emi Sakura & Nanae Takahashi (they won it Saturday if you missed it, ending the reign of GENTARO & Mai Ichiii at just 2 days) vs. Hamuko Hoshi & Sayaka Obihiro for the titles.

Chii Tomiya vs. Kengo Mashimo (K-DOJO) vs. Jun Kasai (Freedoms) vs. Ryuji Ito (Big Japan) vs. Antonio Honda (DDT) in a 5-way ladder match
Yuu Yamagata (K-DOJO) & Hamuko Hoshi vs. Bambi (K-DOJO) & Sayaka Obihiro
Royal Rumble-style Elimination Tag Match: Makoto, HARASHIMA (DDT), Abdullah Kobayashi (Big Japan), Takashi Sasaki (Freedoms) & Makoto Oishi (K-DOJO) vs. Kazumi Shimouma, Yasu Urano (DDT), Daisuke Sekimoto (Big Japan), The Winger (Freedoms) & Yuji Hino (K-DOJO)

Natsuki*Taiyo vs. Hikari Minami vs. Tsukasa Fujimoto in a 3-way
Jun Kasai, Jaki Numazawa & Miyako Matsumoto vs. Takashi Sasaki (Freedoms), Yuko Miyamoto (Big Japan) & Riho
International Ribbon Tag Team Champions Emi Sakura & Nanae Takahashi vs. Hamuko Hoshi & Sayaka Obihiro for the titles

That 4th match is not a hardcore/death match, but it still sounds like a fun matchup if only because Riho's in it along with 4 guys who specialize in death matches. Not to mention we've got the "hardcore love triangle" on one side.

The promotion yesterday announced Command Bolshoi's next challenger for the ICEx60 Singles Title: Chii Tomiya. That match happens at next Saturday's (10/30) Ice Ribbon School event.

Update: Announced for Wednesday is International Ribbon Tag Team Champions Emi Sakura & Nanae Takahashi vs. Makoto & Minori Makiba for the titles. I have a feeling the belts shall be polished yet again. Also announced is Chii Tomiya vs. Tanny Mouse.

Also announced were some matches for 11/1's Shin-Kiba 1st Ring 5th Anniversary Commemoration event, a co-produced event with 666 Young Men:
Tsukasa Fujimoto & Hikaru Shida vs. Sayaka Obihiro & Miyako Matsumoto
Yuko Miyamoto & Chii Tomiya vs. Shinobu & Hamuko Hoshi vs. Dyna (?) & Makoto in a 3-way
More TBA.
Those who also go and present Ice Ribbon tokens (which might be given out at the 10/31 666 event) get this not for sale item:

1/4-Shin-Kiba 1st Ring
3/21-Korakuen
5/5-Korakuen
8/21-Korakuen
12/25-Korakuen

Their plan is over 100 events next year including Ice Ribbon School events. They're also hiring management and public affairs staff as a result. They're mainly looking for women interested in wrestling with driver's licenses who are good speakers. Evidently they'll also help with living arrangements should you live outside their home base (Bracken City in Saitama).

Todyy it seems they're either going to revive another title: Announced for Wednesday's event is a *24 Pupil Belt Title Match (or something similar): Champion Emi Sakura vs. these 11 in an order TBA for the title: Makoto, Riho, Hikari Minami, Mai Ichii, Kazumi Shimouma, Hikaru Shida, Tsukasa Fujimoto, Miyako Matsumoto, Hamuko Hoshi, Chii Tomiya, Sayaka Obihiro.
This belt apparently was created in April 2007 at an Ice Ribbon event a couple weeks before Emi was to challenge then-NEO Champion Yoshiko Tamura for the title. She faced 11 of her girls in a match and afterwards, Aoi Kizuki gave Emi a cardboard title belt-you might've seen it if you've watched some of her old NEO matches (I think I recognize it now). Among the 31 fans in attendance for this match was Kazumi Shimouma, and this drove her to get into wrestling. And with her retirement at the end of the year, she'll challenge the 11/3 winner at Kawasaki Ribbon on 11/24 for the title.

Also announced for tomorrow is a second main event match: HIkaru Shida vs. Nanae Takahashi. In a departure from the usual Ice Ribbon singles match rules, it's no time limit. This means the first 4 matches on the card will all have a 5 minute time limit instead of the usual 10-20 minute limits. The other main event still has a 20 minute time limit (ICEx60 Singles Champion Command Bolshoi vs. Chii Tomiya for the title).

There were a couple last-minute changes due to no Kazumi Shimouma. They cited "circumstances" which almost certainly were timing conflicts due to Shimouma working NEO today.

After the main event the first match for next Saturday's event was made: Nanae Takahashi vs. Riho. Riho wanted this match. Intersestingly, Nanae was part of Riho's debut match 5 years ago.

Wondering about an Ice Ribbon wrestler named Aika Ando? Hear she only wrestles for IR, once or twice a month, & was curious what you guys think of her?

Does she have her own thread? What about clips?

Good little read. To be honest, a lot of people, including myself badmouthed Ice Ribbon when it first started, since it seemed like exploitation. But now, I believe all of us would be happy to get behind it, as it is truely the future of joshi puroresu in Japan.

Post by: Makabe Sword Justice on November 29, 2010, 05:51:23 PM
I've been behind it for a while if only because I like how it's been handling it's growth. They've got their own school & dojo they run small events at, for a while they ran bigger events at Itabashi or Osaka once a month and now they're doing Korakuen roughly once a quarter while continuing to slowly expand into new markets (most recently Hokkaido). Plus I like how they're very open door towards women & girls who want to perhaps be wrestlers or even just come in and try a little bit of training.

Yeah, I somewhat miss that little "Ice Box" they had way back at '07. The progression Ice Ribbon made from that period of time to present-day shows how far the promotion has gone. I'm starting to co-sign Ice Ribbon now.

Hi, I'm new here and already feel lost, being not so good at English, but really love to share all informations I can have as an Ice Ribbon fan from Japan.

On 18. Dec. Emi Sakura and Nanae Takahashi had a duel at Ganryujima Island. No audience but a few passers-by were there.
http://movie.twitcasting.tv/sakuraemi/movie/819561 (http://movie.twitcasting.tv/sakuraemi/movie/819561)

Ganryujima Island is known for a duel between the two swordsmen, Musashi Miyamoto and Kojiro Sasaki, 400 years ago.
Some wrestlers such as Antonio-Inoki and Masa Saito have fought there after that history, and now Emi and Nanae joined them.

Here's the cinematic version of the famous duel.

Miyamoto Musashi is most known to Western audiences as the author of the "Book of Five Rings."  (五輪書 - Go Rin No Sho)

Also the American manga character Usagi Yojimbo is named "Miyamoto Usagi" after the famous swordsman.

Funnily, if you don't count the boost they got for Hyuga's retirement show, this is the best JWP has drawn in the building in like 2 & 1/2 years.

Huzzah for mediocrity :)

It seems to be all down to promotion (like thereof) and sometimes booking.

Ice Ribbon has produced some great young talent on top of all their other success. Emi has done a lot for joshi.

Been browsing here for a week or so but this is my first time posting, and since I went to both the Ribbon Mania and the most recent Ice Ribbon dojo show figured this was as good a place as any to post.

Like Jacked Swagger said, the last match was damned good (though I'm admittedly very new to joshi so I haven't seen a lot of different matches).  It's been great to see Tamura a couple of times before she retires, and I'm really impressed with how good the youngest ones actually are -- hopefully they stick it out, because it'll be great to see them when they've fully matured as wrestlers.  It was also cool to meet up with Jacked after the show and talk about joshi and life in Japan -- thanks dude!

If you missed the news earlier in the week, and you probably did, both Hamuko Hoshi & Sayaka Obihiro are now inactive. Both are returning to their native Hokkaido for an unknown period of time.

Emi Sakura vs. Riho went to a 10 minute time limit draw.

Hikaru Shida & Tsukasa Fujimoto beat Makoto & Mika Iida in 16:42. Shida pinned Iida after a brainbuster.

Apparently we've now got some new factions in the promotion too:
"1.2.3 will-group!" aka "ichinisanshidan!!!"-Hikaru Shida (leader), Tsukasa Fujimoto, Miyako Matsumoto, Mochi Miyagi
"Heisei YTR"-Makoto (leader), Chii Tomiya, Riho, Hikari Minami, Tsukushi, Kurumi, possibly Mika Iida

The concept of Makoto's faction is that they are the "Heisei" group because they are all young and were born in the Heisei era (after January 8, 1989 when Emperor Hirohito died) rather than the Showa era.  Makoto, born in 1989, is the oldest member of the faction.

Shida, Fujimoto, Miyako, and Mochi were all born prior to 1989.  I'd assume Obihiro & Hoshi will be in that group as well if/when they return.

Hikaru Shida & Mochi Miyagi vs Emi Sakura & Makoto
Kenny Omega (DDT) & Hikari Minami vs Kazuhiro Tamura (STYLE-E) & Chii Tomiya

Kenny comes back to Ice Ribbon, after a year I guess.
For Tamura, you may be interested knowing that Chii entered and won an audition for TRUTH, an another promotion Tamura represents,  at Warabi Dojo in 5. Jan.
I hear, then she declared "I'm not interested in TRUTH at all, but enterd for this audition only to show my new gear." and left.

Obihiro released a statement on her condition. It's on the RINGSTARS blog.

http://ameblo.jp/ringstars/entry-10783041430.html (http://ameblo.jp/ringstars/entry-10783041430.html) - 3rd story down.

She has an badly injured rotator cuff in her shoulder and will need surgery.

She will return to Hokkaido on 2/20 and surgery will be done on 3/5.

She will be hospitalized for 5 weeks following surgery for rehab and will then be out of action for 6 month to a year.

Once she is well enough she will return to do commentary for 19Pro.

This time, it received as player meeting entertainment making do, became the opposition card of the Sakura player pulling out.
Degree of distinction and saying from capability, still it depends on Sakura and is the ice ribbon of releasing, but in order this year more and more to keep leaping, it decreases the office work job and the like which Sakura does even a little, that thorough argument Sakura is not and you must designate either the [te], as system of the extent which can use the ice ribbon of present condition scale, you think.
Forever, “ice ribbon = Sakura you smile and” are not, you must keep establishing new age.
From February, it is not to be able to announce still in detail, but because also new project starts moving, it is the possibility that time is taken to also that preparation and the like rather at Sakura.
Because of that, this year being able to let do the first local conference in the player meeting, it is to receive with requesting to the company, you accepted.
When Sakura is in the meeting place, because you think, that player everyone it depends after all, this time the card was not united.
You think that mobilization and degree of conference satisfaction etc it is harsh, but because the participation player everyone impression it stretches, the first step of the new ice ribbon please come to seeing by all means.

This event will be held by the players association, and so Sakura is not on the card.
We are still dependent on her skill and name value, but we must reduce her office work and become even capable of holding our regular events without her help so that we can progress more this year. We must grow out of “Ice Ribbon = Emi Sakura” now.
She is busy preparing for a new project starting in February, on which release of information will follow later on, so we proposed and came to an agreement with the promotion side, that the players association takes charge of our first local event this year.
This time we drop Sakura-san from the card, in order not to depend on her at the venue.

They have raised the price of advanced tickets to 3000 Yen, same as same-day tickets.

However, it seems people who order advance tickets get a 500 yen coupon which can be redeemed either when buying Ice Ribbon merchandise or used as an entry in a prize draw.

Just for fun, here's a sample of the front:

Ryo Mizunami & Mochi Miyagi beat Hikaru Shida & Makoto in 12:48. Miyagi pinned Makoto.

Iida looked really good in her match with Fujimoto.  She was in control for most of the match, blocking and/or reversing a number of Fujimoto's kicks before Fujimoto got her in a leg submission (couldn't see perfectly to say exactly what kind) and she tapped out.  Could be an indication that Iida might get a win in the not-too-distant future.

Kaori Yoneyama & Mika Iida vs. Tsukasa Fujimoto & masu-me
Hikaru Shida vs. Mochi Miyagi
Taishi Takizawa (K-DOJO) vs. Chii Tomiya
Makoto Oishi (Independent/Freelancer, formerly K-DOJO) & Makoto vs. Marines Mask 2 (K-DOJO) & Bambi

It reports Yui Ichikawa, a famous actress, is staring in the coming drama "Muscle Girl!" which is supported by JWP and Ice RIbbon.
Her role will be a president of a small Joshi promotion, and some real Joshi wrestlers will apper in the drama.

And Yui's no fuckin joke as far as a drawing actress.  I mean, she's not auto-win like a Yukie Nakama, but there will be people tuning in who would not have normally just because she's in it.  Right on!  If Amrayu would ever get SARS back rolling again, I wouldn't mind pitching it to her as a Spring season subbing project.

Exhibition Match: Makoto beat ? 7-0.
Her name is Tamako (たま子), a trainee. She is now talked about by IR fans for her extreme weakness which is comparable with Makoto's early years.
You can check her moves at training on Emi's Twitcasting channel.
For example:

Tonight's 19pro match was Tsukasa vs Chii.  It went to a time limit draw.  Most of the match was Tsukasa's new hard-on for leg submissions and Chii making with the rope breaks.  Glad I didn't have any booze for the joshi puro drinking game or I'd have alcohol poisoning!

One followup of note for Wednesday: It seems that when Fujimoto initially offered a title shot to Tomiya, she wanted it to be at the next Korakuen, which is on 3/21. Guess certain other people didn't want to wait that long.
That match today was a 15 minute draw. There also was a 5 minute exhibition, Makoto beat Remi Nagano 1-0.

The April schedule was announced today as well, the road show is 4/16 at Osaka Minami Move On Arena.

First, they have not officialy announced so far that they would archive every show.
And currently they seem to be in trouble with archiving streams on Ustream channels. Emi had announced she would air "Emi's Room" on Wednesday to talk with Ray, but she switched to TwitCasting, because she found archiving didn't work but still wanted to archive the talk.

TAKA Michinoku vs. Makoto

New stip added to the Triangle Ribbon Title match Saturday: To put it simply, there must be a winner. If there isn't a clear winner or it's a time limit draw, they have another match. Makes sense because you figure both Fujimoto & Shida will probably try to pin Makoto simultaneously.

Neko Nitta beat Mochi Miyagi in 4:15. First win for Nitta in just her second match.

Hikari Minami beat Riho & Tsukushi in a 3-way in 6:24 by pinning Riho.

Kazuhiko Ogasawara (Independent/Freelancer) beat Chii Tomiya in 4:12.

Emi Sakura beat Ray in 7:50.

Tsukasa Fujimoto beat Makoto & Hikaru Shida in a 3-way in 7:38 by pinning Makoto to win the vacant Triangle Ribbon Championship. Fujimoto wins the title for the 2nd time and becomes the 6th Triangle Ribbon Champion. As a result, Fujimoto also gets to decide what the main event on 3/21 at Korakuen will be...and it sounds like it'll be her ICEx60 Singles Title defense against Ray. She also may have made a tag match for 3/21: Tomiya & Ogasawara vs. Miyako Matsumoto & Jun Kasai.

On the last 19pro show they did a build up package about the Tsukasa/Ray match...looks like it's going to be pretty damn good.  And Syuri v Shida, kicks v knees, has the potnetial to steal the show.  Can't wait to see this card!

Results from today's Ice Ribbon School event:
They claimed 51 paid.
Chii Tomiya beat Aoi Ishibashi in 3:55.

Lee Yoneyamakao & Hikari Minami beat Ken Ohka & Mochi Miyagi in 7:46. Yoneyamakao pinned Miyagi with a Chinese leg roll clutch.

Makoto Oishi vs. Makoto went to a 10 minute time limit draw.

Emi Sakura & Ray beat Tsukasa Fujimoto & Miyako Matsumoto in 15:25. Ray pinned Matsumoto with a German suplex hold.

After today's event, Oishi cut a promo that apparently was about some hatred being felt towards K-DOJO. When all was said & done, it was announced that Madoka (Independent/Freelancer) vs. Makoto was made for Saturday.

She has kids?
To some of us, that's irrelevant. To me, if they're at least 30, but I will go as young as 28 if they look over 30 (I consider 30 to be mature when it comes to women), good enough. The M can stand for more than just mother.

Edit: The School is rally cranking girls out now-yet another new one debuts Saturday:
(http://representingpuroresu.files.wordpress.com/2011/03/makinarumiya.jpg)
The 3rd from the school to debut recently is Maki Narumiya. She turns 26 next month, 5'4", 123 pounds/56 kg. She will make her debut Saturday against Mochi Miyagi.

There was some kind of promo/altercation involving Sakura and someone else after the main event.

? in the exhibition match is "Tamako".  She is 21 (born 12/14/89), 157 cm, weight secret, and she asked for and got her wish to debut at Korakuen on Monday.  It'll be Tamako teaming with Riho and Maki Narumiya (in what will be her 2nd match) against Hikari Minami, Tsukushi, and Kurumi.

The promo/altercation was between Emi and Momoe Oe (the former Momoe Nakanishi).  Momoe, of course, is the retired AJW star from the late 90s/early00s and the long-time partner of Nanae Takahashi.  Emi said something that came out of my translator as "Nanaphobia" and I think they are teasing an Emi-Momoe match to help raise funds.  No official match has been made, but Emi curiously does not have a match for Monday right now.

One change to the Ice Ribbon card for Monday at Korakuen.  Rookie "Tamako" (she is 21 years old, 157 cm, ?? kg) asked for and received her wish to debut and is taking Emi's place in the opening trios match.  Emi currently isn't on the card, but there was an incident involving her and retired AJW star Momoe Oe (nee Nakanishi) and I think they are teasing a special Emi vs Momoe one-time-only match to help raise funds for the earthquake victims.  Momoe, of course, was Nanae Takahashi's long-time tag partner and Emi said something like "Nanaphobia".

Waht happend in the talk session after the matchs (via http://www.makoreco.com/ice/2011/03/ice274-ed.html (http://www.makoreco.com/ice/2011/03/ice274-ed.html)).
The photo's from http://ringside234.blog111.fc2.com/ (http://ringside234.blog111.fc2.com/).
(http://blog-imgs-47.fc2.com/r/i/n/ringside234/20110319211209c13.jpg)

Tamako's ask for her debut in Korakuen was admitted, so now Emi was out of the cards.
Emi "Seriously, I have no opponent. Is there someone who can wrestle in the audience?"

And Momoe Nakanishi was around the entrance to help the fund-raising (for Tohoku area).
Emi "Momo, Momo! Let her come here. Do you know her, all?"
The audience applauded and Momoe walked to the ringside.
Emi "Momo, come on the ring. Take care of her child. Come on, Momo!"
Momoe "I can't! I just can't!"
Emi "You can! Come on now! Come on! Push her up."
Momoe denied again. Miyako run away taking her baby.

Emi "Take off your shoes, when you are in a ring. So the story about Momo and me... how many years ago? 6 years passed since your retirement, so about 10 years ago, we were in rivalry. And I believe we've been not settled yet. Maybe."
Emi "Momo-chan, you know this situation. I lost my opponent on the Korakuen event. By all means, by all means I wanna fight you."
Momoe "No, no, no..."
Emi "Come fight me."
Momoe "You have Nana-chan."
Emi "I hate Nanae. She parted from me in anger at the end of last year."
Emi "It was so hard to fix the Korakuen cards, and still I must make sure of my card. Look, now unbelievable thigs really happen in the world. So let's make unbelievable things on the ring, too. Unbelievable happiness on the ring!"
Momoe "I'm fed up with you... Sakura-san, I had enough of you!"

Momoe looked tired of her.
Emi "Then, let's start from sharing what the problem is."
Momoe "Huh?"
Emi "What's the problem?"
Momoe "What's the problem? 6 years passed since I retired."
Emi "Yes, and so we have an exhibition match, not a proper match."
Momoe "An exhibition match? Don't decide it as you like... I can't even an exihibition. Because, well, um, so long time has passed since my retirement..."
Emi "6 years passed, don't worry."
Momoe "Meanwhile, Nana has worked hard. Taiyo, too."
Emi "Nanae works hard, Natsuki works hard and Momo works hard."
Momoe "And before I knew it, you gained some weight... No, it's not my point. It must be rude."
Emi "Rude to whom?"
Momoe "To those working hard now."
Emi "It's no rude. Do you want see Momo fighting, don't you?"
The audience applauded.
Emi "Oh well, I wondered if people know her. Please applause if you know her."
The audience applauded even louder.

Emi "I'm longing so. The unbelievable happiness in the unbelievable world."
Momoe "No..."
Emi "You have two days. Train hard."
Momoe "No, no, it's impossible! It'll be rude. I hate such things. I once retired within applouse, and now coming back in training for two days? They'll get angry."
Emi "Help me now... To tell the truth, so much people cancel the Korakuen tickets with a call. And we are criticised like "You are going to have the event in this situation?" I took such a call just early evening, too. And having a problem with internet connection, too. Calls after calls, Replying to each of them and more and more tickets coming back by post. In fact, I wonder like if we should do joshi pro in this situation, or so. But still, I can't help but have matches. I can't stand the exchanges of "please"s and "no"s any, any longer. Help me Momo..."
Emi "Ahhhh. I've not forgotten the regret yet... I understand. You don't have to fight. Just hold me now here on the ring, and cheer up me. Momo, I want you to cheer up me with your smile."

Momoe looks overwhelmed.
Emi "Momo, I'm nearly giving up. I can't smile, Momo. Just hold me."
The audience cheered Momoe.
Emi "You don't have to fight, Momo. Just hold me."

Finally Momoe came on the rig, and Emi suddenly attacked her.
Then, Momoe gave her a dropkick in spite of herself.
The audience cries "Momo! Momo!"
Emi "Okay, I don't know how you had the gall to do it. I have my revenge... at the Ice Ribbon Korakuen Hall Event, Emi Sakura vs Momoe Nakanishi! I fix this! Thank you."
Momoe "No, not really!"
Overwhelmed by the atmosphere, Momoe leaved the ring, seeming to feel deceived.
Momoe "Seriously, Sakura-san..."

Emi "You'll get such a gift if you continue proresu, and Narumiya made her debut today, so shall we try hard now on! Thank you very much!"

A late update to the card, there's been a rule change for the 4th match (Kasai/Miyako vs. Tomiya/Ogasawara): It is now a hardcore match.
The Sakura/Nakanishi exhibition match should be between the 4th & 5th matches (match 5 is TAKA-Makoto).

It's not bad for Ice Ribbon ibn the situation like this with the suprised match. I wonder, Shida beated Shuri. I know , Shida is not bad but I always felt Shuri was better and humilitated all Ice Ribbon girls , except Emi Sakura. However, I'm happy with Shida.  The main event is the big surprised,too. Fujimato humiltated Ray. It means, her status equals Natsuki Taiyo now.


In the future, I wanna see the war between Ice Ribbon and Stardom.

Post by: Makabe Sword Justice on March 21, 2011, 12:30:39 PM
If this were SMASH I bet Shida-Syuri ends differently. As for the main, just confirms what I'd been thinking for sometime-Fujimoto really is the real deal. If she ever were to devote herself 100% to wrestling and drop her other outside-ring activities she could really be something big, but still what she's managed to do in just 2-3 years is still noteworthy. Oh, and nice to see Iida & Ishibashi get a win, that has to be something like the first or second for both.

That seems to be the way of Ice Ribbon. I've beleived that since her debut Tsukushi was definitely a future superstar-to-be and this is a good first step. Now of course the question is who will she first defenf against? Per title rules it has to be within the next 4 weeks.

Tsukushi & Maki Narumiya beat Riho & Miyako Matsumoto in 7:01. Tsukushi pinned Matsumoto.

In an Elimination Match, Lee Yoneyamakao, Hikari Minami & Tamako beat Makoto, Chii Tomiya & Kurumi in 9:42. Order of elimination: Tamako by Kurumi at 2:19, Makoto & Tomiya & Kurumi all simultaneously pinned by Yoneyamakao & Minami at 9:42. Funny photo of finish up on Ringstars.

Mika Iida beat Mochi Miyagi in 6:36. First career singles win for Iida.

Emi Sakura & Ray beat International Ribbon Tag Team Champions Hikaru Shida & Tsukasa Fujimoto in 17:02 to win the titles. Sakura & Ray become the 15th International Ribbon Tag Team Champions. (Sakura wins titles for the 3rd time) Ray pinned Fujimoto after a sky twister press. And so the Triple Crown reign of Fujimoto is now over-she no longer holds all 3 Ice Ribbon titles simultaneously. She’s now down to 2.
After the main event, Tsukushi issued a challenge to Fujimoto for the ICEx60 Singles Title, this coming just a few days after Tsukushi beat Fujimoto in a tournament final to become the first IW19 Champion, while Yoneyamakao & Minami made a challenge for the International Ribbon Tag Team Titles. Sakura also said post-main event she wants Ray to join Ice Ribbon.

After the event, they announced that Yoneyamakao & Minami will get their earlier asked-for International Ribbon Tag Team Title shot against new champions Emi Sakura & Ray. That will happen on 4/9.

Emi also posted a earthquake relief fundraising update on her blog after the event with recent totals from events:
3/19-65,462 yen

Saturday-17,823 yen

We've got our 5/5 Korakuen main event as a result of some post-event happenings at today's event: ICEx60 Singles Champion Tsukasa Fujimoto vs. Tsukushi for the title. It sounds like the original plan, at least according to Fujimoto, was for this match to happen in Osaka next Saturday but Emi made it for 5/5 instead. There could be an International Ribbon Tag Team Title match though, if there is the challengers could be Riho & Tsukushi. Needless to day the singles title plan didn't seem to sit well with Riho.

Edit: No tag title match  on 4/16. Determination match between Riho & Hikari Minami and Hikaru Shida & Syuri, winners get the shot on 5/5.
There also will be a teen entertainment aka Riho & Minami Produced event on 4/24. Riho vs. Tsukushi was announced for that event.

Edit 2: 2 corrections as evidently Ringstars messed up on a couple things-there WILL be an International Ribbon title match next week, Riho & Tsukushi get the shot and Shida & Syuri will face Minami & Yoneyamakao, not Riho & Minami.

Fujimoto vs. Tsukushi for a Korakuen main event is a bit of an odd way to go. Tsukushi isn't exactly as good as a Riho, and Fujimoto isn't good enough to carry her going off of their 19 Pro title match.

I worry about that, too. If Shida & Syuri win the determination match, they'll challenge the tag title at Korakuen. It would be more drawing as a main event if it would go Shida & Syuri vs Emi & Ray.
So, the ICEx60 title match is ok, I think, but they didn't have to settle it in the main.

Post by: Makabe Sword Justice on April 09, 2011, 01:34:03 PM
Intriguing to me though. After all, if Tsukushi can get some wins together including over Fujimoto in title matches, she could go one better than her trifecta and pull off the SUPERfecta-4 titles at once, of course counting IW19.

Results from today's Ice Ribbon School event:
They claimed 44 paid.
Before the event, Emi announced 2 more matches for the Osaka event Saturday: Kanjuro Matsuyama vs. Miyako Matsumoto vs. Kurumi in a 3-way and Kagetu vs. Hikari Minami.

Neko Nitta beat Meare Naito in 5:45.

Mochi Miyagi beat Maki Narumiya in 4:42.

Chou-un Shiryu & Ray beat Dragon Yuki (Independent/Freelancer) & Chii Tomiya in 11:10. Ray pinned Tomiya after a moonsault press.

Makoto beat Tsukasa Fujimoto & Emi Sakura in a 3-way in 9:07 by pinning Fujimoto. After the match, Fujimoto designated Makoto as the next challenger for the Triangle Ribbon Championship. After that Hikari Minami appeared in the ring. Apparently she was ignoring Emi's guidance/advice concerning a ring announcer for the 4/24 event Hikari is producing with Riho and announced she wanted SMASH ring announcer SUNAHO to be the announcer for 4/24.

There also appears to have been another change made for Saturday due to post-main promos and the recent Kaori Yoneyama injury (which means no Lee Yoneyamakao): The Yoneyamakao-Minami vs. Hikaru Shida & Syuri tag match may now be Shida & Syuri vs. Makoto & Tomiya.
Title: Re: Ice Ribbon
Post by: Makabe Sword Justice on April 13, 2011, 06:29:47 AM
A few Saturday (Osaka Minami Move On Arena) card updates appear to be coming out of today's event:
With the recent Kaori Yoneyama injury, what was Lee Yoneyamakao & Hikari Minami vs. HIkaru Shida & Syuri now appears to be Shida & Syuri vs. Makoto & Chii Tomiya.

Also added according to Ringstars: Kanjuro Matsuyama vs. Miyako Matsumoto vs. Kurumi in a 3-way and Kagetu vs. Hikari Minami.

Also today, it appears Triangle Ribbon Champion Tsukasa Fujimoto named Makoto as the next challenger. That match could happen as soon as Saturday but between Friday's IW19 Title match and the above tag match that likely isn't happening just yet. I'm guessing it happens at one of the upcoming Saturday events before Korakuen.

Edit: Full Saturday card revealed, match order TBA:
Hikaru Shida & Syuri vs. Makoto & Chii Tomiya
Meare Naito & Neko Nitta vs. Mika Iida & Mochi Miyagi
Kagetu vs. Hikari Minami
Kanjuro Matsuyama vs. Miyako Matsumoto vs. Kurumi in a 3-way
Apple Miyuki vs. Tsukasa Fujimoto
International Ribbon Tag Team Champions Emi Sakura & Ray vs. Riho & Tsukushi for the titles

They also of course confirmed no Lee Yoneyamakao. They deeply apologize for card modification.

After the match, Fujimoto designated Makoto as the next challenger for the Triangle Ribbon Championship.

 The Yoneyamakao-Minami vs. Hikaru Shida & Syuri tag match may now be Shida & Syuri vs. Makoto & Tomiya.
According to Ringstars, Makoto declined Tsukasa's offer and showed hatred (or maybe jealousy) for Shida teaming with Syuri. She declared she would never serve as a foil to Shida. And Chii suggested to buy Syuri for 10,000 Yen.

This was the "TEENS" event.  I think the gimmick is that it is limited to those in (or prior to) their teens.  Chii turns 20 tomorrow (born 4/25/91), so I guess she won't get to work the next TEENS show next month.

Post by: Sabrina the Teenage Cracker on April 26, 2011, 10:27:05 PM
They absolutely do. They book their shows to create strong emotional ties with the audiences instead of merely being a sporting event to go watch and then go home. They have sit downs after every show to discuss the stuff with the audience. And Emi's always trying to promote to the younger girls to get them involved.

I think the one thing lacking is a major heel figure like Dump. I know Chii's trying and doing well, but someone who can truly put the top girl in peril in a monster form like Dump or Bull or the Kong's. But I guess that would best be saved for after they got some sort of all younger girl audience who were invested in the faces. If they saw the faces getting beat down right away it could scare  them away.
Title: Re: Ice Ribbon
Post by: wprobeginner on April 27, 2011, 02:14:17 AM
Kiyoko Ichiki used to make up for a heel for them, and sometimes Emi and Hamuko took the roll when they faced teens. Ray also came in at first as a blunt invader being interested only in Emi, but now she has become frank with other girls, too. So they really lack a plain heel.
They have managed to make story lines mailly based on rivaliry between friends or jealousy though.

By the way, I hear that there were few teen girls in audience on Sunday. Of course it might be because of the time shortage for preparation and promotion. The next time would be important for their purpose.

They announced another match for their 5/5 "GOLDEN RIBBON" show at Korakuen Hall, and an 8-team tournament to determine number 1 contenders to the International Ribbon Tag Titles.  Some interesting (and downright funny) teams are there.  Hamuko Hoshi will be returning; she's in a tag match with Mochi Miyagi against Miyako Matsumoto and Maki Narumiya.

The tournament will feature 8 teams, and while they were announced, no matches were given for it.

Teams:
1. Makoto/Munenori Sawa
2. Hikari Minami/Ken Ohka
3. Neko Nitta/Makoto Oishi
4. Meare Naito/THE101
5. Kurumi/Shigehiro Erie
6. Riho/Kikutaro
7. Tamako/Shinobu
8. Aika Ando/Yoshiaki Yago

Ice Ribbon "GOLDEN RIBBON", 5/5/11
Tokyo Korakuen Hall

1. Hamuko Hoshi/Mochi Miyagi vs. Miyako Matsumoto/Maki Narumiya
2. JWP Jr./POP Titles: Kagetsu (C) vs. Chii Tomiya
3. International Ribbon Tag Title: Emi Sakura/RAY (C) vs. Hikaru Shida/Shuri
4. ICEx60 Title: Tsukasa Fujimoto (C) vs. Tsukushi


The Riho/Kikutaro team made me LOL, big time, as did Yago/Ando.

6. Riho/Kikutaro
7. Tamako/Shinobu
I saw IR's homepage and also Ringstars, and they tell not Tamako/Shinobu but Tamako/Onryo. Though I'm not familiar with 666, this teaming sounds natural as Onryo has a ghost gimmick and Emi sometimes mentioned Tamako looked like a ghost.

Onryo also participates regularly in Big Japan and Freedoms, the kanji of his name usually translates (when I do it) as "revengeful ghost" and he wears black/white face paint.
All I know about 666 is it's a small indy, their biggest name (that I know of) is former Big Japan Death Match Heavyweight Champion Yuko Miyamoto, another indy wrestler who fits the classic "pretty boy wrestler" mold. Ice Ribbon did co-promote with them earlier this year.

It'll be pretty good exposure for them/Ice Ribbon since that also happens to be Chikarasaurus Rex and thus is one of their biggest shows of the year.  I would hope Emi comes with them (and ditches that hairstyle that looks pretty bad on her...) and maybe Hikaru Shida as well.  Chii's probably got more than enough personality to get over well with the Chikara crowd too.

Miyako Matsumoto is now put to a test!
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oGnliZIa2Ro (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oGnliZIa2Ro)
Emi Sakura scolded Miyako after she lost to Maki Narumiya on Saturday's Warabi Dojo event, since she had already lost three straight singles to her juniors (Kurumi, Mochi Miyagi and Maki). Emi gave a pointed comment that her show-oriented performances are not supported by her real ability any more, so she should be out of their cards for some time to practice. Miyako declined it, then Emi declared she would face Miyako at the next Wednesday's Dojo event (May 11th) in a 20 min ironman singles match.

Sakura-sensei with a mad on going to stretch out Miyako?  I REALLY want to see that!  "THAT" Matsumoto had improved by leaps and bounds once she started running with Jun Kasai, and it was actually kind of a shock to read that she'd been dropping falls to kohei...seems it's cos she was busy mucking about and now Emi's going to 20 minute ironwoman her.  Should be a good time...storytelling in a joshi match?  SHOCKING!!!

I'm kind of surprised they're giving Neko Nitta a little bit of a push like that practically right out of the gate considering that she only started, what, three or four months ago?  I don't expect she'll win the belts but then I assumed her team was there as early exit jobber fodder so what do I know?

Results from yesterday's Warabi Dojo event:
They claim 89 paid.

Makoto Oishi (freelancer) & Neko Nitta beat Chii Tomiya & Meare Naito in 7:50. Naito gave up by Nitta's Nekonade-shiki Backbreaker (Cat-friendly Backbreaker / an arranged Argentine Backbreaker)
Tsukasa Fujimoto beat Maki Narumiya in 4:52. Pinned after a Missile DropKick.
Hamuko Hoshi & Mochi Miyagi beat Munenori Sawa & Makoto. Hoshi pinned Makoto after a Sumo Rariat.
Emi Sakura beat Miyako Matsumoto by 11-0 in a 20 min Ironman match.

In the post match discussion, Emi told Miyako to face Tamako in the next Warabi Dojo event.
And Emi forbade Makoto to join Smash's training unless she could a 100 pushup, since she had heard from Smash that Makoto dinn't have enough strength. Makoto tried it with Chii then and there, but gave up after near 80 done, while Chii cleared. She got out crying.

I dunno, I can't really imagine a serious Matsumoto at all.  She doesn't come off as particularly great in the ring but she's got charisma that some wrestlers spend their whole career trying to find so leaving her to tool around in comedy matches and keep the crowd entertained doesn't really seem like a bad thing.  I mean there are worse things than having the Sakura Hirota role.

Aaaaand now I want a match that includes a Miyako/Sakura/Kasai team.
Title: Re: Ice Ribbon
Post by: 孤星 on May 14, 2011, 09:49:57 PM
She's one of my favorites. I think she can do a little bit more than comedy, I see potential in her. I don't even get a particularly silly Hirota vibe from her, just that she's cute and has cute ballet thingies and Kasai-idolation. I'm looking forward to analysis of her match against Emi; growth might help her. There's no real reason for her to get stuck as total comic relief just because she isn't full of teh movez and super athletics like the other girls.

Chii Pointed out to Makoto that she should face insufficiency of her strength more seriously. "You can't grow taller as you like, but pushup is just a matter of effort. So, why are you privileged always to headline, while you can't even do only 100 pushups?"

Tsukushi: I'm going to complete a Sky Tree at Teens too, without being involved by Hikari's freewheeling style. I'll try so hard to headline it that I will be able to represent Teens.
Hikari Minami: This is the second time for me to headline with a singles, since last July against Sakura-san. This time I'll face Tsukushi, and I'm nervous and getting tense about this. But I just must go for the win, and I really want to win.

Judging from the FACT that the Lovely Butchers (formerly Team Sexy) are involved; there will be lolz and whackiness. Probably some Michael Nakazawa to make everyone feel good about themselves and some Ogawasara suplexing women.

The kind of sexiness they're talking about is the Lovely Butchers kind with leopard print, tiaras, fans and constant posing.

This combination has lost to the Lovely Butchers before, I see them mocking them and then taking the number 1 contenders' slot. 

Honestly, you're blowing this out of proportion based on not even getting the joke- it's the Lovely Butchers.

So, it has already been discussed in OZ thread, but Tsukushi will face Aja Kong in the Jungle Jack 21-produce show on 6.12.
Aja has been explicitly critical of kids wrestling. For your information, there was a talk session between Aja, Toshie Uematsu, Emi Sakura, Meiko Satomura and Fuka in last November and there they discussed about this theme, too. Aja and Meiko were totally negative, Toshie somehow negative, Fuka optimistic and Emi totally affirmative.
And now Aja is apparently going to test Tsukushi of her own...

How do you think about this?

I'm not reffering to Aja or someone particular, but I wonder why kids wrestlers are more often critisized or kept away than old veterans.
If we take (joshi) puroresu narrowly, for example that only consummate athletes should be a wrestler here, then clearly not a few "legends" and maybe even some prime wrestlers should be removed from this circle, with the most of kids wrestlers.
But I believe we usually take puroresu somehow wider. We love legends showing us a glimpse of their prime in the past. So why not we can love kid prodigies showing us a glimpse of their prime in the future, too?

Anyway, I look forward to the match.

Resuluts from yesterday's "19 Pro 1st aniversary" enent:
They claim 68 paid. (Due to the airing, the seats were reduced.)

International Ribbon Tag Team Championship
Hamuko Hoshi & Mochi Miyagi beat Emi Sakura & Ray in 12:25, to become the new champion. Miyagi pinned Ray with an Avalanche Metabolic Sand (Styles Crush).
Exibiton Match: Ice Ribbon vs Shiratori Pro
Tsukasa Fujimoto & Makoto vs Kaoru Hoshi (Hikaru Shida) & Big Devil (Saki Akai) went to a full time draw (10:00).
Internet Wrestling 19 Championship
Chii Tomiya beat Hikari Minami in 8:48 with a Jungle Cluth (Leg Clutching Roll-up), to become the new champion.

After the match, Chii nominated Makoto as the No.1 contender, and announced that she wouldn't defend the title untill the time limit (4 weeks). So the title match will be June 24. And Chii requested that she would face Makoto for singles in all Ice Ribbon and 19 Pro events untill the title match. Both Emi Sakura and Sayaka Obihiro accepted it, so she and Makoto are going to have a 9 straight singles series.

Now the Lovely Butchers invite challengers from any promotions.

Tsukushi: My new goal is to win ICEx60 title.
Hikaru Shida: Wait a minute. You lost to Hikari-san yesterday, and I defeated her today. So I should challenge the title first, am I right?
Tsukushi: Surely I lost to her, but I defeated Sakura-san today!
Hikaru: So what?
Emi Sakura: It is a big thing to defeat Emi Sakura, isn't it?
Hikaru So what then?
Emi: OK. You two face in the contenders match for ICEx60.

Tsukushi is the same age as Riho.
She is only one year or so from her debut, but she's growing up to be the next Momoe Nakanishi. Riho is no doubt a prodigy and has 5 years career already, but now she seems to be a little overwhelmed by her.

Chii Tomiya: It's a matter of course I defeated her today. But I'm still dissapointed. Sakura-san, why was it not the main event today? All these matches are the same cards as the IW19 title match which will be a main event. I'm fighting these as if they were all the title matches. So please settle the next time in the main event.
Emi Sakura: I'm not going to, if the content would be not great, like today.

*Shida substituted Makoto

In the post match discussion:
Tsukasa Fujimoto requested Emi Sakura to challenge her ICEx60 title in "Yokohama Ribbon" on July 10.  Emi refused it on the ground of her being 70kg now. Then Fujimoto proposed that if she would able to lose weight by July 10, she would introduce her a handsome guy. New information of the guy would be added every 1kg she would lose weight. If Tsukasa would lose the title in "Teens 3" on June 19, then it would be the contenders match for the title. Emi accepted it and started a diet.

*So far 2-1 for Tomiya, but it is still unclear if this goes to a 9 singles series nor if Shida becomes the next challenger for the IW19 title.

Tsukasa Fujimoto & Hikari Minami & Riho beat Meare Naito & Neko Nitta & Maki Narumiya in 11:22. Fujimoto pinned Nitta after a Dropkick.

International Ribbon Tag Team Championship
Makoto Oishi & Chouun Shiryu beat Hamuko Hoshi & Mochi Miyagi in 16:24, to become the new champions. Chouun pinned Miyagi after a Chinese Bombs Away (Atomic Bombs Away).

In the post match discussion:

Hikaru Shida attacked Chii Tomiya, and then Chii refused to continue the series with Hikaru. Nevertheless, Emi Sakura announced an another singles between them for the next Dojo event.

Emi had already lost her weight to 67.0kg, so Tsukasa Fujimoto told 2 new profiles of the guy that he is taller than Emi and he has an allergy to pollen.

Hikari Minami had wanted to headline "Teens 3" event. But as the Lovely Butchers lost the title, now ICEx60 championship between Tsukasa and Tsukushi looked more important than Hikari & Riho vs the Lovely Butchers in the announced card.
So she requested that either she and Riho or the Lovely Butchers challenge the International Ribbon Tag Team title before "Teens 3", to make possibility of headlining with the tag team title match.
She and Riho can't join weekday's events due to school, while Oishi and Chouun had already had other schedules on the next Saturday. So the Lovely Butchers got the chance of the rematch on the next Wednesday.

I expected Shida to win because Chii was leading, I think it'll be back and forth like this until the final 3.

The Lovely Butchers had already lost the tag belts to Oishii and Shiryuu, this was their chance to get them back. But Oiishi is injured and the match became non-title.

Looks like N3 has a program. Mary and Neko Nitta are improving by leaps and bounds.

Post by: wprobeginner on June 21, 2011, 03:20:45 PM
Recently, Emi Sakura seems to struggle to sweep away the image that Ice Ribbon is fun but lacks strength or hard hits. For example, real ability of Makoto and Miyako were quentioned very seriously in the last month. As a result, Makoto lost some chances in IR and Smash, Miyako split off from them and not a few their big fans seemed to be frustrated.

Emi started all her effort throughout Gatokunyan and IR taking advantage of her encounter with those young talented girls in her hard times (a serious neck injury and the failure of FMW), and even she often answered criticisms as that they wouldn't need to be called puroresu.
Apparently she saw the future of joshi in them and believed that this future itself could be a entertaining show. Yes, she was right.

But they were defeated by Sendai Girls last year, and even Meiko Satomura said in a talk session that she couln't take the kid wrestlers like Riho, Tsukushi and Kurumi as a serious thing (Riho beat Emi many times even in her early times!). Though it also should be noted that Aja Kong admired Tsukushi after the JJ21 event.
In addition, this year they has not succeeded to draw so much more audience than before, though they are planning more often Korakuen and other big events in the future.

So now Emi seems to try to change IR somehow, maybe from a future puroresu to a present.

I do hope that Emi's able to help them in terms of making their hits look harder and stuff.  There are a lot of times, especially among people like Shida and Makoto (much as I like them) where their strikes and stuff all look really soft and it can look like they're moving in slow motion.

I had no clue that the cat gimmick for Neko Nitta extended to only being able to say "Nyaa."  It's pretty amusing and hopefully she's able to improve at a decent clip so Chikara brings her over since the kids would love her no doubt.

For whatever reason Chii sitting in the chair all smug cracked me up.  And I'm guessing going by the reactions she was talking smack to Makoto.  She rules but we... we already knew that. /ADR

I've been noticing stuff like that for quite some time. That's why I was so slow to come around on Ice Ribbon.

There's a match from one of WAVE's first show where Moeka Haruhi tries to forearm Arisa Nakajima (leave the memories alone) to death, Arisa reverses and the difference in their strikes was amazing. Moeka's strikes were like Makoto's and Miyako's . ...

So what was that video about?
"Who will be Makoto's opponent in the Smash Diva tournament?"
Makoto nominated Emi Sakura, as she had had a grudge against her. But Emi sent those four instead of herself.

Neko Nitta: (Too bad no cat competes in this tournament. So I'll do it!)
Maki Narumiya: I'm from Kumamoto, same as Tajiri-san.
Mochi Miyagi: Kana, Serena, Syuri... they are not gorgeous enough to be a diva. Look at me!
Chii Tomiya: Since recently Makoto-san left Ice Ribbon and transferred to Smash, I might no longer be able to fight her. So I want to fight her in this tournament.
Makoto: I did neither leave, nor transfer! Personally, I don't want to face Chii Tomiya among those four. We were once good friends, but now... I hate her.

Those four will have a trial tournament for Makoto's opponent, maybe in Ice Ribbon's events.

I'm guessing Chii wins and gets in then since she's been feuding with Makoto.  It makes the most sense anyway.  Then again for all I know they could do something weird and put Neko Nitta in or whatever.

Post by: Suben on July 01, 2011, 04:24:36 PM
Can't say I'm surprised with the Nitta title win because of the match kind of just coming up out of nowhere within the last week or two and she's been kind of pushed in the last month or so winning the tag tournament.  She's only been wrestling a few months though so I kind of worry that giving her a title right now is a case of "too much too soon" even though it IS a secondary title where she can be hidden among two better workers.
Title: Re: Ice Ribbon
Post by: 孤星 on July 01, 2011, 04:53:46 PM
^I think that's it.

From what I've seen of her, she looks like one of the only ones "ready" for it that they might want to mix in with Fujimoto, Shida etc.,. She's already better than Miyako* *haha and she's probably right even with Chii if not a little crisper.

*(remember when we talked about how Miyako was stilted? Nitta has little of that despite being green that's what I mean. No offense to Miyako fans.).
Title: Re: Ice Ribbon
Post by: JoshiFanficz on July 01, 2011, 06:39:59 PM
Ice Ribbon doesn't really follow the "Wait 5-10 years before you get a major title push" format all the other promotions do. If Fujimoto was in JWP or NEO she'd still be in match openers, although I didn't need to point that out.

Unless your a special case like Ayako Hamada, who was basically an amazing wrestler right off the bat.
Title: Re: Ice Ribbon
Post by: 孤星 on July 01, 2011, 08:22:24 PM
Puroresu as a whole can't support that system anymore although the fallout in the mens' promotion is less severe and the more well off promotions can still handle that. Ice Ribbon in general is a special case- it's "indy" and although all womens' promotions are technically indy, it runs on indy rules vs the more traditional approaches of JWP, SENDAI or NEO.

It's a shame though because 5-10 years is about how long it takes a wrestler to hit their stride.

Tsukushi v Riho in the final of the opening elimination match, Hikaru Shida v Syuri & the main event title match for the ICEx60 Championship between Tsukusa Fujimoto & Ray were all great matches!

LOVED how ALL the Ice Ribbon wrestlers came out & shook hands with ALL the fans after the final match...NEVER seen that in any promotion! Very cool.

Eh, I can get the mindset.  If I have the money and it's easily available I always prefer having the physical copy, be it DVDs, comics or music or whatever.

I guess to get it back on topic though, Ice Ribbon does seem to be slowly getting better.  They've got some good new characters in Neko Nitta and Mochi Miyagi, people like Chii are really starting to come into their own and improving a lot and the in-ring stuff is slowly getting better and Emi seems to now have a dedication to washing away the thoughts of Ice Ribbon looking "weak" or whatever.  Hopefully they're able to keep improving and slowly build up their fanbase.

When I greeted Michael Nakazawa as he shook my hand, he said "oh you know my name". That is often the reaction from the wrestlers to the gaikokujin who know them. Every Ice Ribbon show ends with the hand shaking. No matter what she does, I will support Emi in her puroresu.

Post by: luckycleareyes on July 05, 2011, 07:45:52 PM
One of the things that made Ice Ribbon so popular it their relationship with their fans. It's been mentioned before how well Emi  uses the emotional link of the fan, basically making the entire company a giant babyface they want to support.

At the end of those Korakuen Hall shows not only will the wrestlers and guest wrestler go in the crowd to slap hands, they'll be singing and dancing like a frickin' Disney World jig and the crowd will be clapping along and totally into it. (This is post main event where one of the girls is bound to cry on the mic either in victory or defeat)

If some of you follow Emi on Twitter https://twitter.com/#!/sakuraemi check her tweets over the last few days. She and her girls are touring the tsunami area and doing small spot shows at kids schools, old folks homes and shelters. They're doing it old school ice ribbon with the mats and the step stool for high spots.

Emi's twitpics are interspersed with photos of total destruction. The contrast of smiling faces, the little kids and the destruction is becoming a pretty amazing and touching photo album.

I remember reading on here once that Ice Ribbon (or what it evolved from) also started as something of an after school program for kids so they wouldn't get involved in gangs and whatnot, is that correct?  It's really kind of nice that in a business that can be pretty scummy and carny like pro wrestling that there are still really good people like Emi involved.

1 - Emi Sakura beat Maki Narumiya (6:38)
2 - April Davids (EVE) best Dorami Nagano (4:07) (double arm suplex followed by double arm submission)
3 - Chii Tomiya & Ribbon Takanashi (DDT) defeated Mochi Miyagi & Shinobu (666) > Takanashi pinned Miyagi (10:41)
4 - 3Way match: Neko Nitta defeated Tsukasa Fujimoto and Hikaru Shida > Nitta pinned Fujimoto (7:30)

As a result of Nitta pinning Fujimoto she will now receive a shot at the ICEx60 title.

Following on from her victory today April Davids will face Hikaru Shida this coming Saturday at ICE Ribbon 307.

(as a side note I was told the match between April and Dorami was very good!)

Due to April training in Japan at Ice Ribbon it certainly puts her in an interesting position ahead of the Pro-Wrestling:EVE vs Ice Ribbon Inter-promotional Series on October 8 and 9.

Up-coming matches:
Tomiya vs Makoto (15/07)
Shida vs Davids (EVE) (16/07)
Fujimoto vs Nitta (27/07)
Tsukushi vs Toyota (21/08)

Park proud): Tamako.  She looked horrible but given how the rock-paper-scissors thing ended with her choosing scissors long after her opponent had already chosen rock and Onryo cartoonishly fell over... is her gimmick supposed to be that she's terrible/incompetent?  I would hope Emi would be smart enough to not put someone out there who's legit on a level of badness your average WWE Diva could only dream of at least.

Tomoka has inherited Makotos hikkimori gimmick except that its not really a gimmick. Makoto is a socia-phobic who dropped out of high school and Tomoka is extremely shy and meek herself. She reminds me of Makoto as a rookie in that shes extremely hesitant to do anything in the ring especially if it means hurting others though shes taking bigger bumps than Makoto did at the same point in her career - that bodyslam by Irie was legit.

Ibuki is Hamuko Hoshi's daughter. So she's not a rookie, at least not yet.

Also: Where is Akagi?

Also Also: How much larger can the roster get? Youd think theyre starting to outgrow their fanbase.
Kizuki, Makiba, Seina, Akagi, Inoue and Tamako are all in semi-retirement. Ice Ribbon allows not only side jobs, but also to wrestle as a side job. And long rests, too. Even Hamuko Hoshi takes long rests to have time with her family in Hokkaido. Wrestlers in a rest often take part in Korakuen events as a staff.

Results from Sunday's Warabi Dojo event:
They claim 100 paid (super fullhouse).

1. Hamuko Hoshi & Mochi Miyagi beat Hikaru Shida & Dorami Nagano in 13:30. Miyagi pinned Nagano after a Frog Splash.

2. Ray beat Chii Tomiya in 7:11 after a Backlash.

3. Hikari Minami beat Tsukushi and Kurumi together in 5:32 with a Double Blockbuster.

4. ICEx60 Championship: Tsukasa Fujimoto beat Makoto in 12:32 after a Venus Shoot, to retain the title.

In the post match discussion:
Chii Tomiya provoked Ray and requested a Hardcore Ribbon (IR style hardcore match what must not be too hardcore) tag match.

Hikari Minami requested to challenge Tsukasa Fujimoto's ICEx60 title at Korakuen event. Emi Sakura refused it on the ground that she had lost to Command Bolshoi at JWP's Korakuen event on the same day and couln't have impressed the audience there so much. But Hikari requested that again and again, so Emi finally agreed to think of it, under the condition that she beats Tsukasa in a elimination match at the next Dojo event. Then Hikaru Shida came forword to join that match, as she had recently been particular about elimination matches. Emi admitted it.

In the ending, Riho appeared and made a speech about Makoto's transfer. (They posted the video of that scene, so I'll post a translation of it to IR main thread later.)

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3JRNiqOGuGM

Emi Sakura: So, who wanna take charge of the ending?
Riho: Here! Here!

Riho: I'm so sorry for being out for some time. Do you remember me?

Riho: It's regrettable that I had no match today, but I came here having something to say. It's about Makoto-san's leaving.

Riho: I've not been convinced of Makoto-san's leaving yet. It must be really wonderfull thing that you have approached your dream by learning many things in Smash's training. But how does it lead to the conclusion that you should leave Ice Ribbon? I can't imagine how influential for you Tajiri-san is, but... it's an unfair headhunting, right?

Emi: No. This is what Makoto herself hoped and decided.

Riho: Then, I must say I'm disappointed with Makoto-san. We faced in your debut match and have spent a long time together, so I know you, your worry, your dream. Is that dream not to be made come true in Ice Ribbon?

Riho: Indeed Ice Ribbon as a promotion still has more to do and many of us have more to do, but aside from loving Ice Ribbon or not, I believe that Ice Ribbon is the best. Hopefully the audience here, though I'm not sure about everyone, is also believing so. At least all we wrestlers are... but Makoto-san, you aren't any more, are you?

Riho: I can't forgive Tajiri-san. I'll invade Smash!

Riho: And Fujimoto-san. You defended successfully the title today, of course. It would never happen that a leaving wrestler can hold a title. Surely Makoto-san created this title, but it's not the creater but the holder, who must represent it. Your duty would be not only important, but also hard.

Riho: This is, Sakura-san, the same to Ice Ribbon which you created. Coming after you, our duty is harder and more important.

Riho: I love Ice Ribbon, so I will work even harder in Ice Ribbon. And I want to become representing Ice Ribbon someday. That's all, thank you very much.

Riho: Now we would like to form a circle. Stand up.

Riho: There are four circles in Ice Ribbon. The first circle is we wrestlers, and the second is you, the audience came here today. The third circle is the audience being absent today. And the fourth is the ones who will become a Puroresu fan in the future. Please shout "Yeah!" after I say "Let's make Korakuen full", and "Ice Ribbon" after I say "Be happy with puroresu".

Riho: Let's make Korakuen full! If we couldn't make it full on the day Makoto-san leaves, I would be reglettable about her. To win is not everything, and even if sad things would happen, it would be there before or after that. It's... Be happy with puroresu! Thank you very much.

According to several news sites, Smash held the press conference about Makoto's transfer on the ring today before the matches. Then Riho appeared and attacked Tajiri, saying "I knew Smash wispers those sweet things and brainwashes wrestlers. This is an unfair headhunting! I'll never forgive you. Fight me right here and right now!" But Tajiri replied "You wanna come to Smash, too?" Riho answered, "YOU come to Ice Ribbon!"

So they'll face in the Korakuen event.

When is the K-Hall event?  This month?  And hopefully video of that press conference is released soon.  Riho will have NONE of your shit!

Tajiri is a Svengail. ..that's so perfect, Suben! ^__^

This card looks awesome.

Chii Tomiya and Takashi Sasaki (Freedoms) vs Ray & Mentallo[

On this morning's 19Pro show, they showed a clip where Chii said something to Ray that made Ray go get a chair and have to be held back.  This one should be pretty good.

The International Ribbon Tag Team Championship has been vacated due to Makoto's transfer from IR to SMASH.  She had held the titles with Emi Sakura.  A one-day tournament on September 24 at Yokohama Radiant Hall will crown a new champion.

Teams are:
Hamuko Hoshi & Mochi Miyagi
DASH Chisako & Sendai Sachiko
Tsukasa Fujimoto & Hikaru Shida
Hikari Minami & Riho
Ray & Kurumi
Kaori Yoneyama & Sayaka Obihiro
Manami Toyota & Tsukushi
Hull Miyako designated UMA Army Corps monster team (probably Death Worm and similar silliness)

I usually use honyaku.yahoo.co.jp.  To me, it looks like (1) Chii Tomiya is leaving Ice Ribbon to freelance (sounds like JWP, Reina, and probably some indy men's promotions as well) and will have a new ring name, something like "micro" (bleh, I like her name); and (2) 19 Pro is getting merged back into Ice Ribbon.  Sayaka Obihiro will join IR and the IW19 title will become a U-19 title for the wrestlers under 19.

If Chii does work in JWP, I want her to bully Rabbit Miyu.

I'm surprise Chii wants to leave Ice Ribbon though. Ice Ribbon is doing very well, why would you want to jump into an uncertain future? I dont know how much the Ice Ribbon girls make in a month, but i somehow doubt Chii will make the same as a Kana or Kurihara as a free agent.

I thought the separation between Ice Ribbon and IW19 was only kayfabe. Which two people were running the two businesses then?

Also, I doubt the Ice Ribbon girls get paid much of anything, which would give Tomiya a valid reason to leave. While this is only my speculation, I'm pretty sure that most of them are only doing it for the fun of it and they only make a decent amount of money on the bigger shows. Seeing how they stick with all of the young people that trained there, I can't help but make a mental comparison to CHIKARA where the Osirian Portal were working for free when they were tag champs (or so I was told).

Awesome that the Ice Ribbon Quartet made a great impression on the British fans and nice to see that they brought the "thank the fans individually" thing with them.  It seems like they make a good impression everywhere just for being so nice and friendly.

Also cool to see our resident IR Updater Dude back as well!

Emi, Shida and Fujimoto are the obvious winners of their matches then.  Riho vs. Tsukushi is a little more up in the air but I'm assuming Tsukushi wins.

Results from Saturday's Warabi Dojo event:
They drew 90 fans.

1. Kurumi beat Sayaka Obihiro in 7:00, pinned after a Soratobu Krumi Wari Ningyo (Diving Hip Press).

2. Maki Narumiya beat Meare Naito in 5:06, pinned after a Kaname Gaeshi (Rolling Kesagiri Chop).

3. Sakura Style Elimination Match: Who eliminated an opponent will also be out and so be able to rest.
Hikari Minami & Emi Sakura & Hikaru Shida beat Neko Nitta & Mochi Miyagi & Dorami Nagano by 3-0.
*Sakura pinned Miyagi in 0:52 with La Magistral.
*Minami pinned Nitta in 10:30 with a Blockbuster Hold.
*Shida eliminated Nargano in 14:40 by OTR.

4. International Ribbon Tag Team Championship: DASH Chisako & Sendai Sachiko vs Tsukasa Fujimoto & Tsukushi went to a fulltime draw (20:00). The title became vacant again.

In the post match discussion:
DASH Chisako requested a single match against Tsukushi.
Miyagi, Kurumi and Nagano requested to represent Ice Ribbon in the Flash Tournament, so each of them will face other candidates in Sunday's event to confirm the members. The ICEx60 champion Hikari Minami was seeded.
Miyako Matsumoto appeared and announced that she'll face soon retiring Munenori Sawa in the 5th Gakenofuchi Pro event on 10.20. at Warabi Dojo.
Tsukasa Fujimoto announced that Ice Ribbon will hold their first event in Sendai on 01.07.2012. "Sendai Ribbon" event has been her personal dream, as she comes from near Sendai. Emi Sakura had also once declared that they were going to hold an event in Sendai on their own, since Sendai Girls wouldn't call them as enemies.
Title: Re: Ice Ribbon
Post by: Suben on October 15, 2011, 04:25:01 PM
The tag belts seem almost as pointless as the Triangle Ribbon championship.  On the flipside Chisako vs. Tsukushi should be a nice match though.
Title: Re: Ice Ribbon
Post by: Fanboy on October 15, 2011, 04:34:11 PM
Yeah, I don't really understand why Chisako/Sachiko had to lose the belts (albeit by a draw) in their V1.  I thought they were going to get in a few defenses and lose the belts back at Ribbonmania on Xmas Day to an IR team.
Title: Re: Ice Ribbon
Post by: Suben on October 15, 2011, 06:42:19 PM
It makes that whole tournament seem pointless as well.  Like what was the point if they were just going to lose them on their first defense?  I like Ice Ribbon and all and they have some good up and coming talent and are fun to watch but some of the booking decisions confuse the hell out of me, especially everything involving the tag belts starting with Shiryu and Oishi winning them and then holding them for two months without defending them.  Is there a reason the Butchers can't get a decent reign?
Title: Re: Ice Ribbon
Post by: Sabrina the Teenage Cracker on October 16, 2011, 11:56:59 AM
Either Emi got po'd that they're going out int he first round of that tournament, or it's just usual crappy booking by ICe RIbbon. Love Ice RIbbon to death, but jeebus they don't know how to work a storyline or give belts much meaning.

30 Minute Ironman tag match, that will be interesting, and Fujimoto right now is Ice Ribbon's top star right now. Minami is good for her age but it's obvious that she needs to improve more but right now she is doing what it needs to be done and that's improving her skills, get it.

THat's Sakura's go-to finisher. Weird. Hope this doesn't mean she's retiring any time soon and giving out all her special moves to her students before she goes :((
Title: Re: Ice Ribbon
Post by: wprobeginner on October 25, 2011, 06:14:45 PM
IR professes a "safe Puroresu" and they use no Brainbuster or any other direct attacks to head usually (Shida and Fujimoto kick heads though). Emi herself gave up Emi-chan Suplex which she had used in IWA years. And she hasn't used a Tiger Driver so often (and Back Drop too I guess) to Riho, Tsukushi or other young wrestlers.
Her Magistral has not been only fast and effective, but also the safest finisher. Therefore she has loved it.
So I also wonder if it would have a special meaning.

Title: Re: Ice Ribbon
Post by: JoshiFanficz on October 25, 2011, 08:24:23 PM
Makes sense why IR do a safe style like WWE, a lot of the girls are probably not fit enough to take moves like Brainbusters and Piledrivers (although Shida's vertical suplexes get pretty close to being headroppy).

I've noticed Emi only uses the Tiger Driver on the older girls or outside talent.

And if Emi were to retire soon, I might just cry. And I don't think IR would be able to survive without her.
Title: Re: Ice Ribbon
Post by: YuhaiPH on October 25, 2011, 09:30:25 PM
Well, she can still run Ice Ribbon even if she is not wrestling right? I mean she can still help on running the promotion backstage as a backstage manager right?

Post by: JoshiFanficz on October 26, 2011, 02:13:16 AM
What I meant is that if she stopped wrestling, it might be a problem because she's their main draw, despite that she hasn't built the promotion around herself (Emi is probably one of the most selfless people in the business right now).
Title: Re: Ice Ribbon
Post by: UnstableProtagonist on October 26, 2011, 10:20:40 AM
I think it is a testament to Sakura's versatility. She doesn't necessarily have to use big moves in order to get the pinfall. A simple Magistral or 450 Splash will do.

Aparently, according to what I saw on the Ice Ribbon offical website, there are new matches announced for Ribbonmania. Tsukushi is Sakura's partner against the Sendai Girls team. And guess who is Seina's opponent? None other than her own sister!!! *saywhat Riho is going to be in  Seina's last match, and the ref is Minori Makiba. Talk about a emotional sendoff...

Yeah it's a shame. She's the driving force and it was her dream but she's not the money behind it. Also, if she joins STARDOM watch out world!

This fucking suuuuucks. No offense to the rest of the girls but I don't know how it'll work without her. She was the matron, she was exceedingly popular with fans and she was a great teacher. Who do they really have now to give them any kind of veteran leadership or to train? It's not like Riho (due to age) or even the "good" ones like Fujimoto or Shida are at the level where they can reliably carry things as the leaders. No clue what they're going to do for trainers either.

I just don't see any way this doesn't hurt Ice Ribbon, esepcially after losing Makoto and Chii earlier this year too. And Miyako too, I guess.

Well, unless Sakura comes back now and then to give guidance to others, it is going to hurt the promotion. The roster is good, but Sakura's work ethic was priceless in teaching them. She worked too hard to let her dream go to waste, I say, and I hope she knows that it shouldn't screw all that hard work.

If she got sponsors to back ICE RIBBON financially then she had to have known this was a possibility. Obviously she doesn't own ICE RIBBON or we wouldn't even be talking about this as her leaving would end the promotion.

Maybe the owners and her vision doesn't mesh anymore, and she feels it is not her "dream" anymore. I don't think you can say it was a waste as it launched the careers of several girls.

Emi did Gatokunyang and the IR, I'm sure her next project will be interesting as well unless she joins an already existing promotion. Maybe REINA will swoop in with their big checkbook and grab her, though with Hotta already as their "signature vet" probably won't happen.

Any rich people out there looking to fund Sakura's next project??
Title: Re: Ice Ribbon
Post by: Suben on December 14, 2011, 01:51:00 PM
I just really hope this doesn't cause things in IR to go south. I kind of wonder what will become of some of the girls if things do though. Would Riho, Tsukushi and Kurumi continue wrestling? I could maybe see promotions willing to snap up Fujimoto, Shida and probably the Lovely Butchers (or at least Miyagi because of her undeniable charisma) if they don't freelance, maybe Narumiya too because has a lot of potential and looks to be pretty naturally athletic. I could probably see JWP grabbing Obihiro, Minami and Nagano.

Granted that's all doom and gloom speculation of course but really this whole situation is kind of gloomy as is.

Ice Ribbon without Sakura makes no sense. I really can't see this ending well. I hope Emi either joins a promotion or freelances. I really don't want to see her try another project/promotion as joshi is way too fragmented as it is.

This also messes with their tag title situation.  If Sakura and Tsukushi win, then they either have to drop the titles quickly or be the third team in a row to vacate them.  If Satomura and Sachiko win, then it blows the big win over Sendai Girls that they've been building to for a year and a half.

Who will train the Innocent Candies? None of them are capable enough yet without her. They need to base the promotion around Shida and Tsukushi at this point I think. The lovely butchers and Hikari Minami would be the 2nd tier.

I just can't see Ice Ribbon suriving without her. I wonder why she's leaving? If she does leave, I hope she joins JWP. Or at least frequent there.

I agree with ELPS that Shida and Tsukushi need to be pushed as the aces of IR, as they are the best two girls they have, in my opinion.

- As I expected, Shida beat Fujimoto for the title. I love Shida so I'm really happy she's finally getting a major push.
- I knew IR would take the tag belts, but I'm surprised Tsukushi scored the pin.

Eh, I'm not as high on Shida as either of you. Not that she's bad or anything, just kind of bland beyond her looks.

I think everyone's missing the real big news and that's the return of The Greatest Tag Team Ever in Jun Kasai and Miyako Matsumoto.

It seems like Meiko didn't hold back against Tsukushi. I wouldn't expect her to, to be honest.

I like Tsukushi's new gear.
Title: Re: Ice Ribbon
Post by: Sabrina the Teenage Cracker on December 26, 2011, 11:54:37 PM
Tsukushi takes beatings from Aja, Emi, and Toyota on a regular basis. This isn't new territory for her lol. 

As for Shida, she's hardly any more or less bland than Ayumi or Tsukasa or any of the other aces of right now. I like her more than Tsukasa though, so I'll take her. I'd like for an outsider to take it from her though. Queens Revolution has been on the invasion, so maybe Kimura or Hailey or Yone could take it.
Title: Re: Ice Ribbon
Post by: nyannyanexpress! on December 27, 2011, 01:17:03 AM
I don't think it'll happen in the next few months, but I feel like Narumiya will end up champion before the end of 2012.

Also, in a perfect world, the UMA army feud would continue, so Obihiro can work a Dainipponobi, Defender of Earth gimmick.  But alas, the world isn't perfect.
Title: Re: Ice Ribbon
Post by: Suben on December 27, 2011, 01:23:00 AM
I don't know if Narumiya would get the belt before Tsukushi. I don't doubt she'll get it at one of the Korakuen shows next year. I could maybe see Narumiya getting it next year depending on how she improves. For a rookie she's fairly watchable already, seems to have a good grasp of the basics and looks to be really naturally athletic so if she can improve at much the same clip Tsukushi has been improving and combined with her good looks she'll definitely be one of the top stars by the end of the year.
Title: Re: Ice Ribbon
Post by: Apex Collection HC on December 27, 2011, 04:20:07 AM
I was surprised as well on the fact that Tsukushi got the fall on the Sendai team, it is a great end to a great year for her. As for Shida, I'm happy for her win, as she is one of the top tier stars of IR, she needed the win to prove herself. And Seina went as far as double-working, first against her sis, then against one of her sis best friends (And the other half of the TEENS group leadership) with Riho as ref. Minami owned Seina, though... *bwah
Title: Re: Ice Ribbon
Post by: Suben on January 05, 2012, 11:21:31 PM
So the Emi/Tsukushi reign didn't last long dropping the belts three days later at a dojo show to Shida and Maki Narumiya. Cool for Narumiya to get her first belt since she looks to have a lot of potential and a great future but at this points the tag belts are only slightly better off than the Triangle Ribbon belt...

Here's the card for Sendai Ribbon and Emi's final match.

1.) Misaki Ohata (Freelance) vs Dorami Nagano
2.) Handicap Match - 3vs1: Hailey Hatred vs Neko Nitta & Meari Naito & Miyako Matsumoto (GakePro)
3.) Kurumi & Ribbon Takanashi (DDT) vs Sayaka Obihiro & Shuou Fujiwara (ALIVE)
4.) Emi Sakura Ice Ribbon Final Match: Emi Sakura vs Tsukushi
5.) International Ribbon tag team championship: Hikaru Shida & Maki Narumiya (c) vs Hamuko Hoshi & Mochi Miyagi
6.) Manami Toyota (Freelance) vs Tsukasa Fujimoto

The only match that looks a bit iffy is the Kurumi match and that's more because I have no clue who Shuou Fujiwara is...

Tsukushi beating Emi on Emi's way out (which is what SHOULD happen) would be pretty big for her and that'll probably be a great match. Shida & Narumiya vs. the Lovely Butchers should be fun too.

My source is Mr. Aoikougei, mask and costume-maker for many of the IR stars. He was in attendance, and tweeted it during the show. But I haven't heard anything since. So I'm not too sure what exactly was said and in what context...

The Saturday show almost looks like a JWP dojo show with the silly stips.  Honda and Miyako took turns imitating random things for ten minutes, and whoever got a better reaction from the crowd got a point.  In addition to normal battle royal rules, the player killers came out with water guns to squirt people at random.

Dorami has a singles match with Sawako Shimono lined up for Nagano Ribbon at the end of the month.

If you want to see any of Golden Ribbon before the DVD comes out, check out the 19 Pro archive.  According to the schedule posted at purolove, Samurai TV isn't showing Ice Ribbon, JWP, or WAVE this month.  I hope that's not a sign that they'll be showing less joshi overall in the future.

One of the guys that does some commentary on Samurai TV tweeted that he was doing commentary for some JWP, Ice Ribbon, WAVE, Diana, and Reina matches today-ish, so maybe there's hope?

- This week's 19 Pro was the best in quite a while, in my opinion.
- I wasn't totally clear on the details of the Triangle Ribbon match... As far as I understand, Cherry had Naito in a Figure Four, and Abe turned it over.  There might have been some chicanery by Abe with a futon hataki, which is kind of like a feather duster.  Anyway, I haven't seen or heard about anyone winning with a reversed Figure Four since I was a kid, so it makes me smile either way. 
- Naito and Abe are teaming up on the JRibbon show. 
- Hoshi is taking on Shida on the 07/15 Sapporo Ribbon show.  She weighed in at 65kg on Saturday's show, so if she can get to 60kg by 07/15, it will be an ICEx60 Championship match.

It's true, the dojo of Ice Ribbon is the Isami Wrestling Arena in Saitama. They often wrestle on the Kouraken Hall in Tokyo, but their main "base of operations" is the Isami Wrestling Arena. Hope this answers your question.

I guess it's a bit like those concerts on really small places like libraries and shops. It doesn't have that big party feeling, but you gain a lot more in terms of emotion and getting to know the wrestlers better. I take it that was the way you felt after the shows, right?

Honestly good for her. Ice Ribbon's going nowhere and is pretty much just spinning its wheels plus she'll be able to get some great teaching from Nanae, Natsuki and Miho so she can hopefully get through her problems getting lost in matches. Surprised she'd go there over JWP though considering she's wrestled/teamed with Bolshoi a lot.

That's if she's leaving of course.
Title: Re: Ice Ribbon
Post by: Sabrina the Teenage Cracker on July 09, 2012, 11:52:22 PM
STarDom would be the better paycheck, and she's forever a spazzerific teenage girl so I think she'd like STarDom better. But I think she'd be a better fit for JWP. It's less stiff than STarDom and much more sprinty. Plus it's better to be surrounded by veterans if you get lost easily. If she did mention STarDom, I'm assuming she's going there, as I can't imagine the current people in charge of Ice Ribbon allowing her to go there.

So something I noticed on the wikipedia page for Ice Ribbon is that Dorami Nagano and Mochi Miyagi are both listed as inactive. Is there any particular reason both haven't wrestled in a while? Miyagi was always pretty fun and Dorami seemed to be coming along really well so it'd be a shame if both of them are done.

Yeah, youtube and dailymotion and torrents are basically the only ways people outside of Japan can watch this stuff and thus expand the fanbase. NJPW screwed up with their iPPV by making it unavailable to people outside of Japan too. Leave it to Japanese companies to never really think outside of their borders though.

Yeah you can buy DVDs but the problem is that if you're buying them outside of Japan (or even IN Japan I'm guessing) they're kind of expensive so unless you have a bunch of disposable income to blow on import DVDs you're kind of SoL. If it's anything like, say, anime DVDs over there you're getting relatively little content for the incredibly jacked up prices.

MisterOne & others interested ICE Ribbon or other joshi that you can't find otherwise, hit up jlynch779@comcast.net tell him what you're looking for and ask to be added to his mailing list

ICE Ribbon releases almost every show they do on DVD and every month Jeff Lynch gets in like 4 to 10 new ICE Ribbon DVDs and has been for years as well as dozens of other joshi shows from all the other promotions and he has a back catalog of thousands of joshi shows as well as puro, lucha, us & anything else you could imagine. His prices are $6 for a show/DVD that will fit on 1 disc, $9 for longer shows that require 2 DVDs

IVPvideos.com is also really good AND even cheaper then Lynch  but his joshi catalog is pretty lacking even though he has 100's of joshi dvds for sale. Good for if you're looking for newer stuff that's gotten a tv release & a few of the more famous older shows but he rarely gets in the comm dvd releases and doesn't have 1/20 as much stuff older shows as Lynch.

This makes ZERO sense on any lvl. ICE Ribbon runs tons of shows per year and as I said above they release most on DVD. At best they were only getting 3 or 4 Samurai TV specials a year. No way I buy that anyone would really think getting TV Exposure for a handfull of shows per year < having no TV & just selling DVDs. BESIDES which you can RIP DVDs and upload them online even more easily then you can over the air TV shows so by only having DVD releases you're not detering anyone from spreading the footage who really wants to.

You keep coming swinging for no reason. Your level of hostility does not match the dead silence of the board nowadays. It's cool if you don't respect this board as much as you do dvdr but please don't insult others just cause.

You know people around my age switched to downloads/cheaper avenues in part because we are broke and don't buy shit, right (when I buy something I can't torrent it's from IVP because I have zero extra money)? Or because most of us hung out as SSS during the height of GP having every single show like clockwork?

Also, the MAIN reason no one responded with answers suitable to your venerable tastes is because NO ONE  SAW THE POST. Mostly because NO ONE VISITS THE BOARD. So answer the question like an adult, without insulting other users, and move the fuck on.

I, personally, don't answer questions when there's a thread with the answers. I don't do redundancy.

Well, yes, I am from Europe. From the East Europe no less. And I see I have to let it go. It's a shame, because I really like this show, but I don't want to pay shit loud of money or write to international dealers just for some entertainment. Apparently, Ice Ribbon, even being very entertaining show, knows so little about global marketing.

They hunting to delete every single free Ice Ribbon video in the Internet (and yes, even YouTube. There was thousands of them in the past and now I can count on my fingers how many of them left), but I can't even watch their work legal, paying fair price. So I can't watch their videos and share them with my friends neither legal, nor illegal and it's all just because I don't live in Japan. It sucks that they don't care about the rest of the World.

As Suben already mentioned in the other forum, Riho announced that she's resigning from Ice Ribbon after the Korakuen Hall show on 09/23.  Aoi Kizuki is going to be her opponent, so that scratches the previously announced Kizuki vs Shibutani singles match.  Narumiya asked to join Hamuko in the IR vs WAVE match, and Hamuko accepted.  Naito found a partner to help her show those junior high schoolers what's what.  So, here's how the card is shaping up thus far:

Riho Ice Ribbon Last Match: Riho vs Aoi Kizuki

Ice Ribbon announced their new rookie's ring name: Kujira (translation: whale) Oshima.  She's billed at 160 cm and 120 kg, which is about 5'3", 264 lbs. 

Having a true heavyweight on the IR roster should make things pretty interesting, I'd think.

Read over at Ringbelles that the reason that Dorami's been gone for a while is because she's quit/retired so add another one to the pile. Sucks, her match with Hiroyo this year showed she had a ton of promise.

All these quittings are worring me quite a lot. In a course of a couple years, we've seen Makoto, Chii Tomiya, Ray, Emi Sakura, Riho and now Dorami leaving IR. Can't help but to say that all this could've been avoided if Emi never left in the first place (even if a couple of the names I've mentioned left before Emi did). There are only a handful of wrestlers that can carry the IR namesake (Tsukasa, Shida, Narumiya) well. It's a pity, quite a pity. *gloom

They also mentioned that Obihiro hasn't wrestled since July and going back and checking the results thread it seems the last match she's had there was July 18th which was a win against Kizuki in Sapporo.

Dorami, like Hikari Minami, left to concentrate on her studies. She certainly made it sound like she'd be back.

I'm a bit surprised Riho's last match would be so low on the card. I get that the ICEx60's important but given how Riho's been around since the beginning I kind of think that her match should've gone on last.

Yes, this isn't terribly unusual for IR.  For example, when they made that "Three Count" show, they had about 10-12 rookies train and debut.  Most of them ended up only working a handful of matches; I think only Fujimoto, Shida, and Miyako Matsumoto stuck around long term from that cohort.

I have been surprised that STARDOM has had so little attrition; they've really only lost Arisa Hoshiki (who was forced to quit by her parents, we think) unless you count the little kid.

Well, I sure hope that all of them don't only fight for a couple matches and call it a day. The IR roster is in need of talent as is. Emi Sakura's leaving caused a flood of bye-byes when it comes to the IR roster. I guess that's why the STARDOM roster has held up so nicely, because Nanae is right there with them. Tsukka and Shida are great wrestlers, no doubt of that, but Emi was the guiding light of the entire roster of Ice Ribbon. She knew how to train the newcomers, and the atmosphere was the right one as a result. After she left? I'm not quite sure, really.

I think that's a big key to things.

Especially early on & up until a few years ago, besides Emi leading things, you had a much stronger vetran prescence in the group. Mr Gannosuke & Gentaro  helped out a lot, among other male wrestlers, Yoneyama was a regular, Nanae & Natsuki were regulars before starting up Stardom, other stars from NEO & JWP like Tamura were around a lot as well & the IR girls got to work on their shows quite often, especially NEO (Mita mentoring Makoto)

These days, IR still uses some outside vetran talent & has relationships with other promotions but it's not to the same lvl. I'm sure Shida & Fujimoto are be able to do a fine job of teaching the mechanics of wrestling & other basics but there's a LOT more to wrestling then just bumping & movez and with them only being in the business 4 years themselves it's a bit of a blind leading the blind situation now.
Title: Re: Ice Ribbon
Post by: 孤星 on October 24, 2012, 04:00:09 AM
I remember years ago getting into a heated argument with a friend about young indy wrestlers training other wrestlers; he was against for the reasons FLIK mentioned.

It really is a blind leading the blind situation if it truly is Shida, Fujimoto and a handful of other more tenured wrestlers who don't have the experience that others had doing the training;it'll just highlight and exacerbate the stylistic problems Ice Ribbon already has. If it's upper level wrestlers like Shida and Fujimoto still have holes in the story of their matches it doesn't really signify anything getting any better.

A lot of the problems I see with rookie talent is the holes in story or not knowing how to get from point A to point B in a way that fits or makes sense.

Edit: cat threw up so I almost forgot. Probably won't mean anything to the fans they already have (cause movez are the predominant theme all over the scene now; working is frowned up because it's slow and "crap") but you can't do that forever (longevity, attracting new fans).

- Risa Okuda changed her ring name to Risa Sera.
- Judging by her 19pro matches, Hotta looks more comfortable in the ring at this early stage of her career than any other IR girl I can remember at the same point.

Damn does Hailey have a lot of belts. Where are the others even from?
Title: Re: Ice Ribbon
Post by: Suben on November 28, 2012, 11:30:10 PM
I think she still has most of those belts that she had back when won the Openweight belt last year. The no-name stuff that I had no clue existed until I found out she had them.

Also nice to see it didn't take IR long after their big unification to do another out of nowhere title change with the tag belts.

Post by: nyannyanexpress! on November 29, 2012, 12:09:04 AM
Over the past few months, some English-speaking joshi fan out there has been updating wikipedia with the quickness, because Hailey's wiki is already updated.  It says she has the International Ribbon Tag belts, the Reina tag belts, the Triangle Ribbon belt, the Remix Pro Women's Championship, the TLW World Women's Championship, and the IMW Hybrid Fighting Championship.

Well, I guess they did it because it'd been so long since the last REINA show and defense that things had changed in IR's internal hierarchy. ..the rise of Hoshi and Hatred and the fall of Shida.

I just noticed Hailey Hatred has mostly worked Ice Ribbon/Stardom the past 4 months and only made 3 appearances in JWP, i assume she is freelancing? Or has she always been a freelancer when she was working for JWP? It just seems odd that there is no followup in JWP after her somewhat lengthy title run.

I liked Obihiro for her enthusiasm and the fact that she struck me as more athletic than most other Ice Ribbon wrestlers.  I think a good place for her would be to hook up with Emi & Kaori in Gatoh Move, and maybe get to work some JWP as well.

that's weird. When I think of IR, I think of how ridiculous some of the girls (and the grown women too) are in terms of ability. Obihiro never stood out to me in that respect.

and when it comes right down to it, I'd take the personality of a Mochi over so many planchas anyday.

That's pretty much it. She's incredibly enthusiastic and seems to run at 1000 mph so it's kind of infectious even if she's not the the best wrestler ever (of course she's been injured quite a bit). Being able to work better people in JWP while having a good compliment of vets to learn from would definitely help her. She's got the likable factor that could help make her big (well, for modern joshi anyway) if she's able to eventually put the in-ring component together and having people around like Haruyama, Kuragaki, Bolshoi, Yoneyama, etc. to learn under would only help I think.

Yeah. I mean i'm not a big fan of hers but she's very likeable. She's like possibly the second most spazzerific girl on the roster. Like her gimmick is she keeps moving and rotating and stuff to try and get some roll up or move in and it's infectious because she just keeps going and going.

All these quittings are worring me quite a lot. In a course of a couple years, we've seen Makoto, Chii Tomiya, Ray, Emi Sakura, Riho and now Dorami leaving IR. Can't help but to say that all this could've been avoided if Emi never left in the first place (even if a couple of the names I've mentioned left before Emi did). There are only a handful of wrestlers that can carry the IR namesake (Tsukasa, Shida, Narumiya) well. It's a pity, quite a pity. *gloom

The recent news of Obihiro leaving too reminded me of all this. Wasn't that long ago when IR had their 1st K-Hall show which did surprisingly well (by modern standards) & everyone was all excited thinking they were going to be the next big thing to take off in joshi. Now a couple years later all the momentum they gained is pretty much gone & the company has really stagnated

Emi was pretty much the heart and soul of that promotion and when she left at the beginning of the year the writing was pretty much on the wall. IR would be better served as a feeder promotion for other promotions or something at this point. Kind of sucks because they once had a ton of promise.

Dear bookers of low lvl joshi promotions, when you swtich your f'n belts 6-8 times in a year no one's going to care and if 75% of the ppl you give the belts to aren't good enough to even get 1 successful defense in then you shouldn't bother in the first place.

I have to agree. People complain about OZ Academy having their titles changing hands too often but you have to remember the titles are defended at their bigger shows such as Korakuen and occasionally Shinjuku FACE, which is only a few times a year. Why can't Ice Ribbon do this?
Title: Re: Ice Ribbon
Post by: 孤星 on December 22, 2012, 10:47:04 AM
Probably because that's what their fans want to a certain point. The style of title changes fits the style of wrestling in a way. And since REINA has problems running sometimes and runs out of sync with IR sometimes the people they have the straps on have been de-push/lost momentum in IR. IR is just a fast paced promotion.
Also, could be political.

Actually Maki is the perfect person to get the belt. 

Only my opinion, but someone who NEEDS the belt should HAVE the belt.  It's a prop to get someone over.  Mio never needed it, she was already an established name, I don't doubt she only got it herself recently to build up to the Mania main event for Maki to take it.

Now start feeding Narumiya quality opponents and WINS will make her a bigger "star" and build the title up more.

Again, only my opinion.  (And for the record, I actually do like Maki).

Actually Maki is the perfect person to get the belt. 

Only my opinion, but someone who NEEDS the belt should HAVE the belt.  It's a prop to get someone over. Mio never needed it, she was already an established name, I don't doubt she only got it herself recently to build up to the Mania main event for Maki to take it.

Now start feeding Narumiya quality opponents and WINS will make her a bigger "star" and build the title up more.

Again, only my opinion.  (And for the record, I actually do like Maki).

EXACTLY~! That's exactly what belts are for and why some people never get them. This is why Yoshiko does not need the Stardom belt.

They've been running with Maki as "the face" for a while now, I think right after Emi etc., left. And she seems like the perfect company poster child. Able to be built in their mold and cute enough. Babyface.

Maki is "green" but so is practically everyone else and IR has always been about the brand spanking new "innocent candies" so that's not really a hindrance.

Maki's really good. Mio isn't super established, she's still just Kana's shadow. Honestly they should have had Kana take the belt then have Narumiya win it form her, but I"m guessing Kana didn't want to job so they had to change up the storyline.

Now that she dosen't work with WNC anymore, WAVE and random indy feds are the only places she works in now. I knew her manifesto and unsafe stiffing from a few years ago would come back to bite her in the ass.
Title: Re: Ice Ribbon
Post by: nyannyanexpress! on January 06, 2013, 10:56:18 PM
Mio established herself pretty well last year.  Getting a decent to serious push in three separate promotions (IR, WAVE, OZ) isn't anything to scoff at, and winning a promotion's top title gives her more cred as a singles wrestler.  Narumiya winning over someone on the rise like that helps her out too, especially since Ice Ribbon wrestlers don't tend to get many high profile wins over outsiders.  Just read that Narumiya's going to be out a few weeks with a minor spinal cord injury though, so that sucks.

Mio's pretty established as far as Frees go and I'd say she's roughly equal to the recognition Kana has because of the run the Shirai Sisters had in womens' promotions before going on an ill-fated Triple Tails trip and not really working womens' promotions-- which is a fatal move for any female free who wants to be lumped in with the best-- until her WAVE run which was a pretty big deal and equal to what Kana got on rotation, she was Ozaki's choice for "new Hiren" (or possible first choice) if anything (Ozaki always liked her, remember when she bruised her off a uraken their first match together way back in the day?) .

She's pretty and she kicks and works outside of the joshi puroresu world grabbing the male fanbase by the testicles. Recipe for success no matter how you slice it and I wouldn't put her very far beneath Kana because although Kana may look bigger when she doesn't have the support of the one thing she shines at (WNC, SMASH, WAVE) she doesn't have support anywhere else to make up for it whereas Mio can humbly hang low on a card somewhere until needed.

Ice Ribbon announced their new rookie's ring name: Kujira (translation: whale) Oshima.  She's billed at 160 cm and 120 kg, which is about 5'3", 264 lbs. 

Having a true heavyweight on the IR roster should make things pretty interesting, I'd think.

http://iceribbon.com/page/fighter_76.html

If i'm reading the google translation correct
41 year old woman who originally tried to get into wrestling in the 90's but gave things up after becoming pregnant. Somehow hooked up with Ice Ribbon and decided to give wrestling a shot again.

Post by: nyannyanexpress! on February 03, 2013, 10:47:42 PM
Yeah, the "should make things pretty interesting" part of my comment never really happened, since she's basically a novelty act.  I was watching one of her matches from a few months ago, and seeing her struggle after blowing up in less than two minutes was actually a little uncomfortable, honestly.  Hopefully, continued training will help improve her cardio.

Joshi puroresu could definitely use some more long-term rivalries, so it'd be cool to see said trolling continue in the future.

- Kizuki & Tsukushi just barely defended their belts because that tag title match had a 20 minute time limit.
- From the very little bit of research I did, "Ayers Rock" is sort of like an Airplane Spin ---> Attitude Adjustment.

Hikari Minami released a statement, announcing her official resignation from Ice Ribbon.

Was just watching her matches from J-Ribbon last year shortly before she took a break. Amused that she got her tongue pierced. Also finally got a 2nd set of proper/more mature looking gear besides her polka dot duds. She wasn't great in ring or anything but she was pretty good and better then most on what's left of IR's roster.

Quote
The show after she won the belt (I think) she went to the doctor complaining of neck soreness. She apparently has some kind of spinal cord damage and is out indefinitely.

Another big blow to the company.
Hopefully some of their new rookies they debued late last year will #1 stick around and #2 actually turn out decent.

As it stands now, looking at their roster. Shida & Fujimoto can go, Aoi & Hoshi can be decent and that's all they've got. The entire rest of their roster is rookies, comedy geeks and novelty acts (little kids or women in their mid 30's to early 40's).

I think this rivals and possibly tops the height of Athress era JD for dirt worst roster in joshi history.

Exactly. I wouldn't dismiss Nekko Nitta just because she's older because she clearly understands wrestling a lot better than say, Hikari Minami.
I wouldn't dismiss Kurumi either because of age. It's not like teens are new in joshi puroresu.

IR caters to an indy-style crowd. She's not Zenjo, she's not Pure Heart style she's indy-riffic which is pretty much the state of everything not NJPW in general.

She's gotten better with not looking like she's play fighting all the time but she's still. ... not like Shida or Fujimoto or Hoshi and really, really shouldn't have pinned Hoshi who is on a fucking roll the likes of which has been slowly building for about 6 months now.

I do agree with her "in ring" skills (I'd be lying or blind if I said differently), but she is my fave thing going in ANY company.  I am totally entertained by everything she does, the more outrageous the better.

Her and Jun are fun together but I was totally in LOVE with her and Neko as a team, I really wish that could have went longer.

On Facebook there was a thread at the end of the year about who you thought was 2012's MVP and I got heat for saying Miyako.  I was only half joking when I said it, but she is the only worker (probably should use that term a little loosely) that I go out of my way to get anything that she's involved in to she what she'll do next.

Seriously.  With the momentum she had coming into this tournament, Hamuko looked like a strong bet to win the title.  Then again, the company does have that stupid weight limit rule handcuffing what they can do with the belt.

Only skinny pretty girls whether they're deserving or not. Hence Miyako's moon push that would totally not be happening in any of the other companies(?). But IR is what it is and I don't really expect much more. I'm just happy to see Shida branching out because IR is not the place for someone with the potential she has. Fujimoto and Hoshi as well.

89 fans


1. Kurumi defeated Risa Sera (04:50) with La Magistral.
2. Aoi Kizuki & Arisa Nakajima defeated Hailey Hatred & Nana Kawasa (09:07) when Nakajima used a Diving Footstomp on Kawasa.
3. ICEx60 Decision League Semifinal: Miyako Matsumoto defeated Hikaru Shida (08:58) with a Miyacoco Clutch.
4. ICEx60 Decision League Semifinal: Tsukushi defeated Tsukasa Fujimoto (11:00) with a Modified Tiger Suplex Hold.

- The title match is this Wednesday.
- The match summary made it sound like Tsukushi rolled through the tiger suplex into a pinning combination to win; I look forward to seeing it on the highlight digest.
- If I interpreted it correctly, Shida mentioned something about wanting to remove the weight restriction on the title in the future.

I can't see them putting ALL THE TITLES on Miyako

Why not? They've already done it once.

Still pulling for Tsukushi though but I don't think them putting the belt on Miyako is that out of the question especially after having her go over Shida.

Wow, those results were completely unexpected. I hope Tsukushi wins the belt, it's been long overdue.

Sounds like Tsukushi used Marufuji's Australian-Style Suplex. I've seen her use it before.

The weight restriction needs to come off the belt. Then Hoshi can finally win it.

I will say if it does go to Tsukushi that Matsumoto shouldn't have gone to the finals (forgive me Miyako!).  Beating Shida in the end would do more for her.

TSukushi had a hard time fclipping herself back over Miyako. I had that problem til coach Billy taught me about the whole keeping your knees pointing up. Tsukushi killed MIyako so hard lmfao, Miyako was covering the fuck up.

According to Emi Sakura via Pumi, apparently Shida is a heel in Ice Ribbon but the fans don't know it because she has to go I'M AM SHIDA HIKARU OF ICE RIBONNNNNNNN *smile* before every show.

Shida needs to stop it with the knee strikes. Those things look like she couldn't bust her way out of a paper bag. Kinda hard to take her as a bad ass. Either stiff the fuck out of your opponent or don't do them at all.

Yea that's not their style. Miyako wins belts in this company, after all.

I always get irked when fans critique stiffness. If it's not Miyako or Haruhi bad then there's really no way to tell. Sometimes things look weak but don't feel weak at all. And since a lot of the roster are girls who have other things going on in their lives besides wrestling is there really a reason to work uber stiff? It's not like stiffness is the only thing that makes good wrestling. Some people believe that if you're actually stiffing people you're a mark and unprofessional.

Yeah, but at least Miyako's using roll-ups to win and is not trying to portray herself as a Queen of Strong Style with teh deadly knees. I certainly don't want Shida to go on a stiffing spree either, but my point was if you can't make your strikes look even half way decent, then why use them as your signature/finisher? Just stick to your falcon arrows etc.

I can get behind Risa Sera slapping people with fish, but between doing that and associating with Hiroshi Fukuda, she definitely needs a Fisherman's Suplex in her arsenal.

Ice Ribbon ran their quarterly blowout event in Tokyo today, results from Korakuen via Battle News:
They claimed 592 paid. Even for them at Korakuen that’s really bad.
Risa Sera beat Rutsuko Yamaguchi in 6:55.

235 beat Kuzira Oshima in 3:39.

Aoi Kizuki & Arisa Nakajima beat Cherry & Meari Naito and Kana & Shu Shibutani in a 3-way in 9:35 when Kizuki pinned Naito.

Hamuko Hoshi & Hailey Hatred beat Neko Nitta & Leon in 10:17. Hoshi pinned Nitta after a sumo lariat.

Minoru Suzuki beat Miyako Matsumoto in 9:56. After the match, it appears a rematch was made for the next Gakepro on 5/4.

Hikaru Shida & Tsukasa Fujimoto beat GAMI & Ryo Mizunami in 20:03. Shida pinned GAMI after 3 Count.

ICEx60 Singles Champion Tsukushi beat Kurumi in 12:40 to retain the title. V1 for Tsukushi.

Their lowest attendance in the building ever
Down from their previous low record by over 100 fans
Down from the last time they ran the building by over 150 fans
Almost half of what they drew a couple of years ago when they ran the building for the 1st time.

The important lesson no one important will learn?

Step A) Spend a month having a tournament to crown a champion

Step B) Decide to make the first challenger to the new champion the person who came in last place of their block and 2nd to last overall in the tournament

Step C) Announce she's getting said title shot in the main event of your biggest show of the year so far

Step D) Have her immediatly job to the new champion in a tag match on the show whear she's named #1 contender and then be on the losing end of the next match she werestles as well

Step E) Announce a weak, meaningless undercard to back up the main event.

Step F) Draw a piss poor crowd and wonder why.

I'm all for innovation in wrestling and thinking outside the box but "the champions are the best wrestlers in the company, the challengers are ppl who've won a lot and earned the right to potentially be called that" is a simple, universal formula that really shouldn't be messed with.

let alone one with Kana and Shuu on it. Why have her in the 2nd match and Hailey in the third? Tsukushi vs Kurumi as the main event? Really? And that's the only title match? Come on.

...because Tsukushi is the champion? Kana can't mainevent every show she appears in, you know. In fact she's lucky to be appearing in more shows lately. Her friendship with Arisa (the current JWP champion) has gotten her bookings in JWP. Before that, all she was getting was WAVE after she left WNC.

I pointed out how Shuu, Kana, and Hailey should be higher up on the card if they're going to bother bringing them in for a big show

One of the few top home grown stars IR has left not in main matches for a show or 2 = no big deal

Shuu, Kana & Hailey, 2 of which can't really be argued as any kind of significant draw, being in middle of the show matches on 1 card = whine like a baby.

And Osaka Pro.

Tell me how lucky Hailey and Shuu are too to be asked to be in pre-intermission matches for ICE Ribbon.

Shuu gets semi regular bookings from Ice Ribbon and ocasionaly pops up in JWP among other notable places.
Hailey unlike Kana doesn't have heat with half the industry thus gets booked by almost everyone of note in Joshi

Given the talent sprinkled throughout that card, it indeed doesn't look especially compelling.  A lot of the comments under #iceribbon from people who were there are wildly mixed. 

I typed this up yesterday, so I'll just dump it here:

1. Kurumi & Hikaru Shida defeated Tsukushi & Hamuko Hoshi (09:37) when Kurumi used La Magistral on Hamuko.

3. Miyako Matsumoto wrestled Mio Shirai (10:00) to a time limit draw.
4. Hailey Hatred & Risa Sera defeated Tsukasa Fujimoto & Manami Katsu (11:29) when Sera used a Small Package Hold on Katsu.

- Sera challenged Katsu for the Jr. belts. 
- As of 03/29, four of the members of last year's debut project resigned from IR: Hotta, Wakamatsu, Terada, Takeda.  However, Sera, Yamaguchi, and 235 will continue in pro wrestling.  The only resignation that's even slightly surprising is Hotta because she probably had more matches in her two months before disappearing than Yamaguchi and 235 have had combined.

This world where only the most despised Joshi is less than semi-regular for half-a-dozen promotions

The majority of which aren't joshi promotions. A bookings a booking and money is money but Kana's hardly getting high profile important gigs. You complain that IR brought her in and booked her for a match early in the show but for as popular as she is, NO ONE in Japan uses her in anything more then a mid card / women's side attraction role except for WAVE and JWP a little bit.

Title: Re: Ice Ribbon
Post by: Sure Shot Lynch on March 31, 2013, 09:00:56 PM
Okay, not to jump totally into the argument, but just my thoughts -

I'm a HUGE Ice fan and this was not a well booked show on paper, there's no denying that.  Tsukushi-Kurumi didn't NEED to headline, a title match doesn't always have to main a show, ESPECIALLY that match.

Looking back, yes it will be a cool little history note that a 15 and a 13 year headlined Korakeun, but look at the results in attendance.  Look again in a few months how it will effect their next big show.  Hopefully they learn a lesson (which going off of current track record, they won't).

This show should have been the tournament for Maki's title, or at least the semis / finals.

Checking the results for the JWP show might explain why Kana was on as early as she was, since she did BOTH shows, same day.  (I am not sure of distance between venues and exactly what show went on first.  I thought I saw that Ice started at noon).  She was double booked and had to get out of there, my guess.

Just my two cents.

I mean I don't really see why anyone's mystified about the card, the attendance, or anything else with Ice Ribbon? I have no clue how much longer it has but it's been a promotion in freefall ever since Emi left (was it ever said WHY she left exactly?). The current people running things seemingly have no idea how to promote like Emi did, no idea how to book in order to give you matches that have reasons for wanting to see them or cards that don't look thrown together (Ice Ribbon's always had kind of wonky booking but it's been more pronounced in the last year).

You have a roster that's gutted for various reasons like school (Minami and Dorami), injury (Narumiya), just flat out opting out (most of the recent trainees), loyalty to Emi (Riho, Obihiro), or just straight up disappearing (Mochi).

IR looked to be a promotion on the rise in 2011, it was never going to be a promotion full of great 5-star matches but (much like Chikara) seemed to do well in carving out a niche as a fun promotion that anyone could come and see and worked hard on building a real connection with the fans. It's pretty sad to see where it is now.

Obviously there are dozens of other Joshi running around who can say the same

There are, you're not trying to claim that they're major superstar draws like you are with Kana however.

I wonder if the "mid card / women's side attraction" thing also applies to Arisa and Hailey

Nope, but seeing as I allready mentioned in this thread that Hailey gets booked well lots of places on actual joshi shows and found the rise of Nakajima to be the best booked thing in all of joshi in 2012 I don't know why you'd think I would but you only see what you want to see and have blinders on & a tunnel vision, do no wrong, if you're not with us you're against us defense for your favorites as always.

He's not saying Kana's worthless. He's saying that you're grossly overestimating her drawing ability. That's not "I HATE KANA KANA IS THE WORST EVER~" simply that she's not as good of a draw as you think she is which has nothing to do with whether or not someone hates a wrestler. The idea of hating someone and the idea of saying they're not the top draw don't go hand-in-hand.

Yeah that about sums it up.
My final thoughts on Kana and then i'm moving on
In no way a fan of hers but I don't hate her and am really more ambivilant on her then anything at this point

She clearly is popular to a degree, has a fanbase and is a talented wrestler but it's hardly some grave injustice or act of stupidity to book her on a show and not have her in a high profile spot or Shuu Shibutani of all people (and I am a Shuu fan but come on she's a midcarder) and Hailey. And really you also have to be in pretty big denail to not see Kana's options for bookings are slim & limited now or to realise why.

She's got WAVE, she's had 4 to 5 IR bookings over the past year, she's getting a handfull of JWP bookings because she's friends with Nakajima and she works a lot of lower to midcard comedy matches & tolken women's special attraction bouts on lower lvl men's shows.

And fuck, there's NOTHING wrong with working the midcard tourning special attraction role, that's a big part of what led to popping the business in the early 90's by exsposing joshi to a male audiance that otherwise had ignored them up until then but let's call things for what they are. It's hardly an impressive resume of stuff that Kana has here.

3. Miyako Matsumoto wrestled Mio Shirai (10:00) to a time limit draw.

This is kharmic revenge for all that Shida trolling. Miyako trolling is the next logical level.

Hamuko Hoshi
Tsukushi
Kurumi
Neko Nitta
Meari Naito
Risa Sera
Akane Fujita
Kuzina Oshima
Miyako Matsumoto

Pretty sure it'll be Tsukushi, but I would luv to see Neko get the shot.

That's actually the perfect main event for Kurihara going away. We get her and Tsukushi dropkicking the shit out of each other and her and Aoi revisiting their past. Hailey vs Tsukushi sounds awesome too.

It's a shame that we'll never see Tsukushi and Kurihara dropkick the shit out of each other in a singles match.

1. Aoi Kizuki defeated Meari Naito (06:56) with a Senkai Body Press.
2. Tsukushi & Kurumi defeated Risa Sera & Miyako Matsumoto (08:38) when Tsukushi used a Harukaze on Matsumoto.

4. Shuffle Tag Match: Tsukasa Fujimoto & Hamuko Hoshi defeated Hikaru Shida & Hailey Hatred (26:24) when Hamuko used a Sumo Lariat on Hailey.
- Under shuffle tag rules, the teams changed every 7 minutes, so the combinations went like this:
(00:00) Fujimoto & Hamuko vs Shida & Hailey
(07:00) Fujimoto & Hailey vs Shida & Hamuko
(14:00) Fujimoto & Shida vs Hamuko & Hailey
(21:00) Fujimoto & Hamuko vs Shida & Hailey


Hamuko joins an elite club with that win.  Outside of Kurihara and Kuragaki, I can't think of anyone else who has pinned Hailey in Japan right off the top of my head.

It's been that way since before the forums were re-arranged, actually.  I'll look into getting it fixed, though it may require an update.  Not sure.

I have no idea if she ever would but Tsukushi needs to jump ship or something. To where I don't know but Ice Ribbon's been sinking ever since Emi left and it really seems like it needs to just be put out of its misery at this point. Shame too because under Emi you weren't going to get a bunch of 5 Snowflake Classics but you'd damn sure get really fun shows. I'm sure Shida and Fujimoto would have no problem getting work if things went belly up either.

I want to smoke whatever you are smoking, because that shit must be good.
Ice Ribbon shows are still fun! If they left, Shida, Fujimoro, Tsukushi, Hamuko, Miyako, and Sera would all have shows to work.
Even just those wrestlers together would make a damn fine show, and they do.

Yeah, who the fuck said Ice shows weren't fun? The last dojo show I went to was one of the more enjoyable shows I've seen all year.

They should be smarter about booking their big shows, but we already had the "I hate Kana so Ice should book her in the opener," discussion.

That's cool that you guys can actually watch those shows but nothing from IR gets out anymore (and you're lucky at this point if the Korakuen Hall shows make it out) and that combined with the smaller roster and having talent leaving, seemingly focusless title reign going by results, dwindling attendance for their big shows, etc. it gives the impression that the interest in the promotion is dwindling and that it's not in a good place.
