Title: SENDAI
Post by: Her Majesty Queen Kori I on October 04, 2007, 06:22:32 AM
Starting up again.

Post by: JOSH Chisako on October 04, 2007, 10:41:43 AM
I found this new poster of the Sendai Girls; they will be wrestling at a ring set up at an auto race on 10/28. 

(http://www.sportsland-sugo.co.jp/motorsports/event/20071027/img/event_big.jpg)

Along with the new names, they all have numbers now.  You know who is #1, Okuda is #2, CHISAKO is #3, the girl formely known as Yurie Kaneko but is now Hiren (tragic love) is #4, Sendai Sachiko is #5, and Mizhaaya is #6.  I guess the trainee (that we named HOTTIE HARADA yesterday on the old board) will be #7.  So Sendai steals ideas from not just GAEA, but JWP (new silly names) and ARSION (silly numbers).

Post by: DANgerous K on October 04, 2007, 11:02:39 AM
Numbers?  I wonder if they will be static?  I can't see the point in having them unless they are changeable for competitive purposes. 
I'm hoping Sendai isn't going to start going too crazy  :D
Have you a link for that poster Josh I?

I fixed my link.  Kori beat me to it.  Now you can look at it twice. 

I think the numbers were based on the reverse order of when they wrestled on the first show (Meiko main event=#1, Okuda semi-main event=#2,..., Sachiko opener=#5) with The Miz getting #6 because she debuted later.  But maybe I'm wrong.

Meiko posted on the Sendai blog today.  She thanked everyone for their concern about her injury and apologized for troubling everyone.  She was vague about how long she'd be out, but I don't think the JWP title match planned for the Sendai show on 11/18 is going to happen (at least on that day).  I'm not sure how they'll handle booking shows without Meiko.
Title: Re: SENDAI
Post by: Her Majesty Queen Kori I on October 11, 2007, 06:13:33 AM
Meiko will let Azumi stew over it and plan her revenge.

In 2008, when this match finally happens, Meiko will unleash the Dropkick of Fury.

Meiko will then be the new JWP Champion.

Some recent photos.

This is from Saturday at a fundraiser for breast cancer.  The girls are hanging out with the mayor of Sendai.  The mayor has a whole webpage full of his photo-ops; what a media whore he is (shocking for an elected official  *bwah)

[imgzoom]http://www.city.sendai.jp/mayor/motion/images/071013-2b.jpg[/imgzoom]

Meiko did make a public appearance yesterday.  Too bad JD Stars is gone or she could work the "Pirates" gimmick with a big eye-patch  *yellow

I got an update on Meiko from Nikkan Sports, http://tohoku.nikkansports.com/news/p-tn-tp3-20071017-270961.html (http://tohoku.nikkansports.com/news/p-tn-tp3-20071017-270961.html).

Basically, the gist of the article is that Meiko is out for 2-6 months.  She's definetely out for the rest of 2007 and will miss Sendai's November and December shows.  The 6 months is a worst case scenario if she needs another operation-I think they did something with an endoscope already.  I'm not an expert, but I think there's not a lot you can do with this sort of injury besides wait for it to heal and not do anything to reinjure yourself.  I have to imagine this is very frustrating for a competitive, athletic, driven person.  Meiko did say that this was an opportunity for the younger wrestlers to assert themselves.  I wonder if Sendai attendance will suffer, or if the girls, along with the outsiders they bring in, will keep the crowds up.

As you saw in the last post, she missed the appearance at the breast cancer charity walk over the weekend, but was cleared to participate in a public appearance of some sort yesterday, but with an eye patch.  Here's another photo.

Seriously though, I'm pretty bummed with that but I look forward to the HATE when/if the potential match comes around.

I don't think attendance will suffer Josh I, if the fans who have already been going are anything like us and have become marks of the little uns not just because they have been great, but because they are marks of Meiko and the girls are her students.  She can put the girls in main events against the top juniors from other promotions and maybe have them all do 'trial' series against the older girls.  Maybe they could drop ticket prices slightly due to the lack of Meiko.  Thats if they have any kind of problem of course.

It might mean a push for one them, I'm thinking Okuda possibly. How it will affect attendances will be interesting to see.
Title: Re: SENDAI
Post by: twisted on October 18, 2007, 03:47:51 AM
And maybe Hyuga could make some special apperances in order to help draw more audience and as a form of compensation for having injured Meiko (and perhaps her presence could be used to build some story that would lead to Meiko's comeback and revenge)
Title: Re: SENDAI
Post by: Her Majesty Queen Kori I on October 18, 2007, 04:36:40 AM
Injuries happen, it's the nature of the beast.

Look at Ayumi.  She's been out since July and nobody has given her "compensation" though granted she's a freelancer.  But Meiko's not the first to be hurt though, accidents happen, like when Azumi tried to flatten Ayumi's head at DNH II with her finisher. 

Hell, look at the time Tsubasa nearly snapped AKINO's back from a botches moonsault move.

Yes, injuries happen, but fortunately we're not talking about beasts but humans, and an even slight sense of guilt should be more than natural. I certainly don't think that after her ill-fated knee attack Hyuga walked out without even inquire about Meiko's health.
If it wasn't foor that slight sense of guilt there wouldn't have been those Plum Mariko memorials through the years...
Title: Re: SENDAI
Post by: Her Majesty Queen Kori I on October 18, 2007, 07:26:42 AM

Guilt is fleeting and humans can turn it off.  Just like my ex when she tried to out me to my employer today.

Feh.

I really would not like to think that Ozaki had the recent memorial just out of some feeling of guilt.  Sure, I imagine she may have some kind of misplaced guilt in her over it, but I don't think that would be her main motivation.

Yeah, exes shouldn't have that kind of input into a persons life.  Cut them out with surgical precision. 
Title: Re: SENDAI
Post by: Her Majesty Queen Kori I on October 18, 2007, 08:06:32 AM

No contact with her at all and she's STILL calling me 70 + times a day.  I never answer so now she resorted to this.

You're right, exes aren't human.
Title: Re: SENDAI
Post by: twisted on October 18, 2007, 08:43:24 AM
I didn't mean to say that Ozaki and the others payed a tribute to Plum Mariko out of a sense of guilt. I wanted to say that I am sure all these girls have a sort of empathy towards each other...
Title: Re: SENDAI
Post by: DANgerous K on October 18, 2007, 08:52:58 AM
Yeah, I thought you probably meant that, but I was just kind of saying that I could personally see the possibilty of people doing it out of guilt and I was kind of saying I hoped that wasnt the case. 


 *crazy
Kori, I was going to try and say something perceptive or funny about your situation and then I thought, Jesus these things are so freakin complicated I wouldnt know where to start!  She calls you that many times a day, either she cant get over you and still likes you or she's got nothing else in her life, or she has trouble disconnecting herself from someone who no longer really has anything to do with her.  Either way, HEAD GO BOOM! 


Also, I should be getting the Sendai anniversary show soonish.  *crosses fingers*  I am rather looking forward to Meiko's Finals matches and booing the hell out of Ayako and Kansai.  I'm wondering if it will be obvious when Kansai knocks her silly.

Back on topic.  An update in the Sendai column/blog thing.  Meiko Satomura had an operation on her injured eye and is in the hospital recovering.  Nothing was given as to how long she'll be out, but I have a bad feeling it's going to be a while.  Meiko said she'll write more in her column/blog while she is resting/recovering.  I wonder if she'll get philosophical on us?

Meiko, if you are reading us on your laptop (yeah, right), get better and don't rush back.  We want to see you when you are healthy and ready!

Yep.  Meiko Satomura was Chigusa Nagayo's young protege in GAEA and virtually always played the role of virtuous underdog babyface, particularly in her feud with Aja Kong and in her dealings with Mayumi Ozaki and the other evil ladies of the Oz Academy.  When GAEA disbanded in 2005, Meiko was approached by Jinsei Shinzaki from Michinoku Pro to help start a new joshi promotion to be based in Sendai, rather than Tokyo.  She agreed and the rest of the roster are her trainees-Okuda is being groomed as the "future ace" much like Meiko was in GAEA (although Chigusa sure booked Meiko to get humiliated a lot by the fat old ladies).  Since there aren't any other veterans on the Sendai roster, having her hurt is a big deal.

Oh, and I got the card for the Sendai Girls show this weekend.  They are setting up a ring at a local auto race and are having 3 matches.  They got a decent pinch-hitter for Meiko.

I'm pretty sure the new girl (原田真利 or はらたまリ) is named Mari Harada/Harata.  Someone let me know if I am totally wrong.  She'll probably get a new silly name soon enough.  Apparently the DASH in Chisako's name came from a comic book character and Okuda liked dinosaurs when she was little.

Also, new pictures from a Japanese sports paper.

This is unusually early for Sendai, but we've got the card for next month's show versus JWP.  Since we lost the Meiko-Azumi title match because of injury, we get another one instead.  Also, the official debut of Sendai's trainee-I'm not 100% sure on her first name, but I think it's Mari.  I also suspect the "Mizhaaya" for Ayane Mizumura's new name may not be correct.  We'll know for sure once the newer shows hit GAORA and the dealers so we can hear the ring announcer and commentators actually say the names-sort of like Okuda's real name is translated as "Akari" but sounds like "Shuri".  Oh, and IMO it's time for Hyuga Junior to cough up her belts... *bwah

Well, Meiko could totally pull the "you owe me one" card on JWP.  I could see Okuda keeping them at least til the Jr. All Star show.

I always figured that a Nakajima-Okuda junior title match was coming at some point.  At first, I thought it was Junior All Stars, but they are doing the 6-person tag instead.  Then I thought maybe JWP's Korakuen Hall show in early December, but once Meiko got hurt and the Meiko/Hyuga match was off, then they might have decided to move it up.  Also, Nakajima has had those titles for a while (the JWP Jr. for about a full year and the POP for several months-I don't remember exactly how she got that belt). 

That's a pretty long reign for a juniors title and it's probably time for her to drop them to someone anyway, so they could do it in Sendai and give the crowd a big thrill. I don't see too many other matches that look promising for Sendai wins, especially since they are leaving Asuka Ohki at home.  If this happens, then maybe set up Okuda to feud with someone else like Hiroyo Matsumoto and have Sendai & Ibuki work some shows together.  Eventually I suppose someone would have to drop the JWP belt back home-maybe the belts could be separated again to allow for 2 new breed title feuds at any one time.

Title: Re: SENDAI
Post by: Sakebito_ONI on October 26, 2007, 03:33:55 PM
I thought they made the POP thing only defended once a year, or was that something that happened because of how Fuuka and JD' ran things?

Anyone else think that maybe they should just merge some of these belts, or split them up?  Like if Okuda beats Arisa, then JWP claims that the JWP belt can only be worn by a JWP wrestler, so they give Okuda the POP as a consolation prize for beating their Jr. Champion, or something like that...
Title: Re: SENDAI
Post by: luckycleareyes on October 26, 2007, 06:22:10 PM
POP is all that remains of Jd'. It's a good target for any of the girls from there. Arisa is a good champion.

I loved the "Arisa is the girl who is a 6 but acts like she's a 10" observation. What nobody mentioned is she's one of those girls that pulls it off. Go read her blog. Arisa is a heel in real life.

Though I can't see her defending it against Shu (or Ayumi), any of the other Jd girls, including Matsumoto who pinned Yoshida and lost to Arisa in the "Princess League", might surprise me.

Arisa wears those two belts like she's mini-Tamura.
Title: Re: SENDAI
Post by: Eivion on October 26, 2007, 06:45:09 PM
Except she can't pull it off. Every time she tries to act bigger than she is it gets fairly annoying.

Now tell me, what makes her a heel in real life.

Natsuki just never defended the title after she won it. Its that simple really.

Title: Re: SENDAI
Post by: Sakebito_ONI on October 26, 2007, 07:34:24 PM
Cool that for once things are as simple as all that.  Happens far too rarely for my tastes.

From the few times that I have read Arisa's blog, she LESS bitchy heel in the ring than she is in her day-to-day life unless she's kayfabing her blog.  Her blog reads like something a really snotty, snobby "popular" bitch in high school would write, except in this case, that snotty, snobby "popular" bitch is Japanese and wears a couple of title belts.

And I think that if the POP and JWP Jr. titles were to be merged like the NEO and NWA Pacific, that there'd have been some kind of announcement.

I still like my idea of Okuda getting to wear the POP after beaing Arisa though.  I like her in the ring and all, but I'd also like to see Okuda get over.  Plus, if she was to get a belt, then it would be an added incentive for the SENDAI fans to come to the shows with Meiko out of action.  Hell, Okuda and drop the belt back to Arisa in the rematch right after Meiko comes back to action, but in the meantime having the POP in SENDAI will add to the draw...at least I think it would.

But might I also add here that on the subject of Arisa, we were starting to drift into a zone that this board isn't about.  Hadn't entered it, and hadn't even come close to the line crossing, but I want to be proactive.

Besides, the girl's got her own thread, which is a more appropriate place for that line of discussion anyways....so go hate on her there!  *bwah

And we will see how much of a draw in SENDAI was just for Meiko soon, won't we? (not as cool as "T-Rex FTW" but I tend to be wordy...)

I think the more important aspect here is how these girls are going to react.

Let's face it, whether we realize it or not, Okuda has everyone looking at her right now, and this could be a big choke or pass with flying colors moment.

A win would be good for her and Sendai, but I wonder, with Meiko out are we going to see the girls traveling to Tokyo?  Who will they bring to Sendai now?

I don't think we have to wory about Okuda choking. People have had their eyes on her since she challenged Aja so if she couldn't turn it up under pressure I doubt Meiko would have started using her for a regular partner in tags.

Great that of course happens when Meiko is out so no chance of Yoshida vs. Satomura. Still should be interesting, especially if Okuda wins the Jr./POP titles off of Arisa.

Sendai has completely redone their official website.  Here's the new look: http://sendaigirls.jp/ (http://sendaigirls.jp/)

I think it's an improvement.  I found out we had Mizumura's new name wrong: it's apparently Ryo Mizunami, not Mizhaya or Aya Mizunami.  It was spelled out in English in the flash graphic at the top of the page.  I did get the new girl's name right, it is Mari Harada.

Those of you that like joshi blogs will be happy, as each member know has her own blog that's linked to.  I haven't had a chance to translate, but all of the girls made their first posting and put up some pictures.  Now we don't have to depend on Meiko's sporadic blogging habits. 

Still no updates on Meiko's condition from the eye socket injury/operation.

Yeah, one of the good things that can come out of a bad situation like a legit injury is that you have a ready-made reason to keep a feud going.  I think having Hyuga Junior lose her titles this weekend would help as well.  *bwah

I've given the new blogs a quick glance.  It appears that Okuda and Miz are both obsessed with food.  Fuuka better watch out, because the Tyrannosaurus likes her CAKE too!

Thats terrible Oni.  Just terrible.  Is it the matching outfits that confuse it for you? ;)
Heh, I never had that trouble, but mind you, that may have been the thinking behind the shakeup of the names and giving all the girls a number now that you mention it.  They were all a bit generic in a sense with their similar builds and sizes.  A bit like a certain upper-tier american Indie - who I wont mention - when they started out.

Part of the Sendai Girls' gimmick is that they are a "unit" or a "team".  They are presented almost like they are a sports franchise in Sendai-so going to watch the Sendai Girls take on OZ or JWP or Ibuki is supposed to sort of like going to see the local baseball or soccer team play.  They even put uniform numbers on their outfits this year. 

Whether one likes this gimmick or not, of course, is a matter of personal taste.  I suppose at some point when the first girl turns heel and turns her back on Satomura, the first thing she'll do is get rid of her red uniform and make fun of it.

I think the main reason why I have a hard time telling who's who is that I don't watch Sendai.  I know I should and all, but what little I've seen from the past of Sendai (and I do know full well that's it's no longer like this) always came across to me as Meiko pulling a Chiggy surrounded by green girls that she wouldn't allow to work anywhere else.  My impression then was that Sendai was nothing more than Meiko's personal jobber corps.

I know now that my impressions were wrong and that it was more Meiko not wanting her girls to work outside of Sendai until they were ready to produce quality work.  I just haven't made the time to watch any Sendai to get to know the girls...I'm sure that once I do, I'll have my own quirky personal favorites and junk, but until I do actually make the time to watch, sadly, they'll still be kind of all run together in my head. *give

I can understand that for sure.  The thing with me was that I'm a big time fan of Meiko and as soon as I decided to look online for stuff and found out about Sendai that was logically the first port of call for me and modern Joshi.  But ya know, I think now is probably the best time to start watching Sendai, because the first four girls, at least, have all had their initial rookie year, and now they'll be allowed to be more inidividual and not just be those four mini-meiko girls in the red jumpsuits.

I think that Meiko is from the area, I'm pretty sure that somebody said that and its a good place for them to get attendance with her being the only established girl there and the hometown hero.  I would imagine its because they've got the market cornered there as well as I don't think there is any other promotion running in Sendai.  Is there?
Title: Re: SENDAI
Post by: JOSH Chisako on November 17, 2007, 11:27:13 AM
The deal with Sendai Girls is that their financial backing comes from Michinoku Pro.  M-Pro was started back in the 1990s as a regional promotion serving mostly the "Michinoku" or "Tohoku" region of Japan, which consists of the northeastern part of the main island of Honshu.  They are quite devoted to the concept of serving their region.  In fact, Great Sasuke ended up becoming some sort of government official for Iwate Prefecture (that's north of Miyagi Prefecture, where the city of Sendai is).  Now, Jinsei Shinzaki serves as the president of M-Pro and Sendai Girls.

As mentioned before, Meiko Satomura is almost a local.  She's from Niigata and that city is a lot closer to Sendai than it is to Tokyo.  I guess the combination of being nearer home, wrestling a lighter schedule, and the challenge of starting her own promotion from scratch was enough for her to pack up, leave Tokyo, and go to Sendai.  I read somewhere that she didn't want to freelance and was considering leaving joshi after it was announced that GAEA was going out of business.

I don't know who else (if anyone) was approached to work for Sendai Girls, but I would guess being away from Tokyo and more isolated from the joshi scene was not attractive to most. 
Title: Re: SENDAI
Post by: Coffee on November 17, 2007, 04:54:53 PM
i hope staying in sendai wouldnt stunt this promotions growth
while the girls are sadly known as a jobber corps, that doesnt mean that they didnt deliver great matches
it just sucks that i haven't seen them win unless sendai girls go against each other in shows

while making a valuable contribution to the community is a noble concept, we cant deny that in joshi or in puro, all roads lead to tokyo
there is a large opportunity for growth there
the girls didnt have to go freelance but they could manage to get booked at other promotions as well dont they?
Title: Re: SENDAI

Post by: Sakebito_ONI on November 17, 2007, 09:22:51 PM
It was the Okuda/Kong match in Oz that made me realize that it was more about Meiko not wanting any of the girls to work outside of Sendai until they could produce quality...after watching that match, I can actually believe now that the Sendai girls are capable of winning against just about anyone at any time (you know, within limits...like I don't think Miren could beat Uematsu, but Ohki, oh yes indeed)

And I'm warming up more to the idea of working the promotion v promotion fueding that's recently started up...like the possibilty of NAO vs. DASH with the upcoming SENDAI v. IBUKI fued interests me greatly

I read somewhere (and wish I could find it again) that the whole "keeping the girls in Sendai for a year" against known veterans before letting them venture out into other promotions and against younger workers was actually a strategic decision made by Jinsei Shinzaki and Meiko Satomura before they even debuted. 
Title: Re: SENDAI

The last Sendai Girls show of the year is at Zepp Sendai on December 29th.  The theme is "Senjo vs Ibuki" and I guess the idea is that it is a clash of Satomura's students versus Yoshida's students.  Specific matches haven't been announced yet, but here's the graphic from the Sendai homepage.

[imgzoom]http://www.sendaigirls.jp/cgi-bin/images/top/next_20071228/image.jpg[/imgzoom]

So it looks like the 6 Senjo girls (from left to right, Tyrannosaurus Okuda, DASH Chisako, Hiren, Sendai Sachiko, Ryo Mizunami, Mari Harada) versus (again from left to right) Atsuko Emoto, Cherry, Kyoko Kimura, Tomoka Nakagawa, Hiroyo Matsumoto, and Misaki Ohata.

If this means Yoshida isn't wrestling, that's disappointing for obvious reasons.

Oh boy, Hiren and Okuda are in for some ass kickings.  Awww...and cute versus cute in the new girls match.  I bet the Miz goes over there and maybe Sendai over Tomoka, otherwise lots of sendai shoulders to the mat.
I could really kill Azumi now.  That so would have been a Meiko Yoshida main event.  *gah

(of course, the whole current direction might have been different, but you know what i mean)

According to this blogger http://blog.livedoor.jp/hide03191/ (http://blog.livedoor.jp/hide03191/), this is the card for the show.

SENDAI GIRLS' Pro Wrestling "LIVE VOL. 15" December 29, 2007
Zepp Sendai


1. Mari Harada vs Atsuko Emoto
2. Hiren vs Cherry
3. Ryo Mizunami vs Kyoko Kimura
4. DASH Chisako & Sendai Sachiko vs Tomoka Nakagawa & Misaki Ohata
5. Tyrannosaurus Okuda vs Hiroyo Matsumoto

Apparently Ohata grew up in Sendai as well and is the same age as Sachiko.  It didn't say if Okuda vs Matsumoto would be a junior titles match or not.  There's actually a real possibility that Senjo might win 3 matches.  Emoto & Kimura were going to beat anyone, so they sacrificed the new girl against Emoto (she'd lose to anyone at this point) and Mizunami vs Kyoko could be a really nice match, as Miz is more than strong enough to stand up to Kimura. 

I still want Yoshida in a match.  Bring in someone and give us a special "legends" match.

Also, a lot of photos of the new girl Mari Harada (#7) and the Okuda/Nakajima match at that blog.  Here are a few:

Yes, as opposed to adding more lesser-talented and lesser-experienced wrestlers to fill out their roster. However, adding more experience and talent to the roster would be adding quality too. I just don't see how it benefits them to add more of Meiko's students to their shows.
Title: Re: SENDAI

Its called filling out a roster so they eventually won't have to bring in so many outsiders. Will take them a few years, but its not a bad thing at all. It was already mentioned earlier in the thread why Meiko started out in SENDAI alone so I doubt anything has changed that will make them able to bring in more experienced wrestlers on the roster.
Title: Re: SENDAI

I'm not knocking gradual additions either. But I don't think any roster should have a massive (in this case, I guess most of us are talking about 3-5?) influx of newbies just to fill out a roster. The overall quality of the product will suffer.

looking at the roster, it is small and of most of the programs that ive watched at SENDAI, the only way for them to win is to wrestle against a fellow SENDAI girl. the girls look like jobbers during interpromotional shows because of that hence agreeing with Eivion that you bring in too many outsiders

Honestly rookies affect the product very little until they start moving up. The product is pretty much just Meiko and maybe Okuda now. Bringing in new rookies won't affect them at all.

I haven't seen that many Senday matches to really get to know well Okuda's skills. as far as I know all the Sendai girls look like very promising rookies and more or less all at the same level. Yet, considering that Okuda has been pushed more than the others I am certainly wrong about her; can anyone tell me in which aspects is Tyrannosaurus O. better or more mature than her colleagues?
On the opposite side, who do you consider as the weakest of the group (not considering Mari harada, of course) ?

Personally, I think DASH has more than enough in-ring personality to get over the fact that she doesn't bust out as many moves, but what she does use is usually done in an effective manner.  Seriously,I frickin love her facial expressions.  She was great with the "fighting spirit" in the Toyota match and her attitude in her full match against Mizunama was almost Tamura levels of cockiness.

The thing I've liked about the SENDAI girls (excluding Meiko) that I've seen in matches is that they stay within themselves and have solid matches. I'm glad they don't try to go too big. It's good for the outside talent appearing, and it's good for whomever is on top of the card (usually Meiko). I haven't seen the most recent stuff from Okuda, but I'm interested in seeing where she is now.

I absolutely agree, Okuda was great on that match, and Aja too...the match began as a simple squash from Aja, but slowly develoed and Okuda -although her winning was never even suspected- managed to really shine on that match

among the highlights of the match:
-Okuda's sequence of German followed by the diving knee attack. Those were really delivered with the authority of a veteran (although then she went back into rookie mode by delivering some cute but weak elbows/fists on Aja's back)
-Aja's atttempt at a uraken: before doing it she sort of pats on Okuda's cheek as is saying "be quiet, little girl, and it'll be over in a second; it'll hurt less if you don't resist it"
-Okuda's immediate blocking the uraken

Sendai Girls has announced the first show for 2008.  Like the first show of 2007, it will not use any outside talent.  Unlike last year, where the original 4 girls fought sparring matches and then took turns getting beat by Meiko (I think this was the match that started the whole "Meiko's jobber corps" stuff), the 6 girls will compete in a 1 day tournament.  Okuda has to be the favorite.  Maybe they'll do something interesting and have someone upset Okuda and have an in-house challenge for the junior belt (assuming Okuda doesn't lose it this weekend).

Meiko Satomura will participate in a "talk show".  Tickets are cheaper than usual (3000 yen) and K-12 students are free with school ID.  Sendai also seems to be continuing the sports franchise theme, as they will start selling "season tickets" (i.e. a pass for a year's worth of shows).

I dunno Kap, they have seven girls now (eight including meiko ofc) so that is enough to do a one day tournament of some kind. They could have an opener with Okuda versus the newest girl Harada and then three random matches between the more "senior" girls with the final decider match being a three way. Or they could have Harada or somebody have a bye for the opening round so they could then have two semi-finals into a final one on one match.  Theres a number of ways to do it.

Personally, I doubt they will bring the belt into it (unless Meiko is really leaning on them over the injury) but yeah they could have an interesting "upset" over Okuda in the tournament.  Although I would put money on that being the Miz which might not be so much "interesting" as logical

The Tyrannosaurus Okuda vs Hiroyo Matsumoto match at the Sendai show on 12/29 has been made into a title match, with the JWP Junior and POP titles on the line.  For those who missed it, this is a rematch from the Sendai vs Ibuki show in December 2006 where all of the Sendai Girls lost and acted badly (tantrums, showboating, etc), causing Meiko to bitch them out in the ring and setting up the story where they had to face Meiko in a gauntlet match where one of them was supposed to get fired (although that didn't happen). This was also the kayfabe reason why no one from Sendai was in last year's Junior All Stars-the story was that they didn't deserve to go while the real reason was that the decision had been made before the promotion even debuted to keep all of the rookies limited to Sendai shows for their first year.

 My guess is that this show will be a redemption for the original four girls and that Sendai will finally win more matches than their opponents in a show.  I predict Hiren's first win (over old lady Cherry), DASH & Sachiko beat Nakagawa and Ohata, and Okuda retains the titles, while Mizunami loses to Kyoko Kimura and the new girl Mari Harada loses to Emoto.  However, Hiroyo and Arisa Nakajima from JWP will probably get their revenge at this year's Jr. All Stars.  I think the Senjo-JWP feud has been great (with one obvious exception) and I hope it continues, especially when Meiko returns.

Interesting thoughts. I have to agree with them though I also hope against against Hiren's first win to honest. Looking at too its sad hat even if Meiko wasn't injured we still probably wouldn't have seen her and Mariko lock up. This was basically designed to be a true coming out party for the rookies of SENDAI.

So mention revenge at the Junior All Stars. Who will pin Okuda then, Hiroyo or Arisa?

I think a straight-forward tournament with a first-round bye for Okuda might be the way to go if they use all seven girls. That's a card of six matches, if I'm not mistaken. I'm just not sure how the three-ways with the SENDAI style would work... but anything is possible.

My guess is Nakajima will, largely because JWP is putting the event on and would be inclined to have their top junior win the main event.  JWP did let Genki and Yuki win the Discover New Heroine tag tourney this year, so I figure they'll want the big win this time around. This also could prolong the JWP/Senjo feud and set up a title rematch sometime in the future, say next spring.  So none of this will probably happen now that I've said it.

As far as the Sendai one-day tourney, there are only 6 girls excluding Meiko unless they bring in some outsiders, which I don't think they are doing for this event since they are charging less than usual.  If we go with a standard single-elimination tourney with no 3-ways or other stuff, we'd have 5 matches and 2 of them would get first round byes.

Eivion, did you see the Meiko/Okuda/Miz vs Kuragaki/Arisa/Ohki tag from the August JWP show yet?  If not, you'll love the end of the match and the aftermath.  Meiko loves Arisa about as much as you do  *bwah

Oh yeah, of course there are only 6...I keep thinking that the Miz's number says eight, but why that made me think there was seven excluding Meiko i dont know.  No wait, its because I'm an idiot and I can't count!
The trio's tag was a lot of fun.  The Okuda/Nakajima and Meiko/Nakajima exchanges were a lot of fun as was Arisa paying for her youthful bitchiness.  The Okuda/Nakajima stuff kind of makes me think that the Jr titles match was in the works before Meikos injury and not just as "payment" for it although it could have just been to set up the following tag match.  The revenge spots between the two senior girls also had me smiling.  Funny that Tsubasa could get up Meiko and Okuda for the Argentine, but not Natsuki and Nanae.  Kayfabe for the fighting refrigerator? *bwah

I had the same thing happen, so I saved the match and watched it on a FLV player.  It worked fine them.  The final few minutes and the aftermath are the best part.

Megavideo was alright for me, if you just no-sell the whole "not being able to change the public/private settings" thing if you just want to watch shit...found a lot of Shimmer stuff on there, but the uploading is slooooow.

vSocial is iffy, since it still has the 100mb cap, but no time limits..and the player itself is kinda wank.

But even before the last round of wankerific changes to Veoh, there'd still be the random vid here and there that would botch in the middle and lock up...try completely exiting out of the VeohTV client (even going to the task manager to make sure) and then starting the cleint up on it's own before using it to search out for the match...I've found that vids botch less when you handle everything within it rather than clicking on the button on the vid's page at Veoh.com

The penultimate joshi puroresu event of the year!  The same 700 people (give or take a few hundred) that always go to Sendai shows.  I haven't found any photos yet-I think these results were posted just a few minutes after the show ended.

SENDAI GIRLS VOL 15. December 29, 2007
Zepp Sendai
700 Fans

1. Atsuko Emoto defeated Mari Harada (7:32) by submission with the M-Clutch.
2. Cherry defeated Hiren (9:38) with the Cherry-tom Bomb.
3. Kyoko Kimura defeated Ryo Mizunami (12:16) with a Reverse Cross Armbreaker.
4. DASH Chisako & Sendai Sachiko defeated Tomoka Nakagawa & Misaki Ohata (14:42) when DASH used a Huricanrana on Ohata.
5. JWP Junior & POP Titles: Tyrannosaurus Okuda (c) defeated Hiroyo Matsumoto (13:28) with a Jumping Knee Attack.  Okuda succeeds in her 2nd defense.

I was hoping Hiren would get her first win here, so all four original trainees could win and Sendai could beat Ibuki 3-2, but it was not to be.  Maybe Meiko will let Hiren beat Harada in the one-day tourney next month.

It was nice to see DASH get her first pin-fall over a non-Sendai opponent and to see Okuda defend the title successfully twice in a month.  I'm all in favor of defending the junior belts frequently.  I suspect DASH & Sachiko will beat the Shirai sisters on Monday, but Okuda's team is gonna lose to Arisa & Hiroyo.

Well the Shirai's are from an even smaller promotion in MAHEKEN and don't have as much experience so I would they they lose to Dash and Sachiko.

I thought/hoped (I'm a Cherry fan) Hiren may not win here, but your idea of all four originals winning sounded enticing.

So I'm thinking Okuda loses that tournament next month to set up an in house defense against one of the other girls.

A Japanese blogger that I read who is a Sendai local and goes to all the shows reported that the winner of the Sendai one-day tournament gets a title shot in OZ Academy.  Also, 2 girls were "randomly" chosen to get first round byes-Sachiko and Hiren got them.  I'm sensing someone other than Okuda wins, most likely Mizunami, since I don't think they would do Aja-Okuda II already.  This assumes that Aja retains the title against Carlos Amano.  Some sort of monkey business could happen, especially since Ozaki is pissed off and declared "war" on the rest of the Oz Academy and she's most pissed off at Aja for failing to give Mayumi the respect she thinks she deserves.  Another wacky idea I thought of is for someone (maybe Hiren-her motivation could be frustration/jealousy and how she's had no success so far) to turn heel and win by outside assistance (say Police or Mika Nishio) if they want to re-do the old "Mayumi is a bad influence and lures girls away from their dojo" angle that was the original Oz Academy.  I don't really think I want Oz Academy: The Sequel, but I won't be shocked if something like this is done sooner or later.

Also, Misaki Ohata was very popular with the crowd and got a lot of streamers since she was born/raised in Sendai.  Some people called for her to come home and join Sendai Girls.

Doubt they would do something like that though in general it does remind me of some people wishing in general some rookies would turn heel. Personally I think such a thing could be pulled off well in NEO, not sure about SENDAI. Besides Aja is the only heel in SENDAI as far as I know.

I'm a bit disappointed they are running the title shot story again, especially since there is no believable chance at victory. Mizunami wouldn't be a bad choice though. To be honest, I find her ahead of most of the other girls despite debuting later.

It seems after Junior All Stars that the Sendai Girls are on a short vacation, as Okuda's latest blog post was from her mom's house in Kagawa Prefecture (on Shikoku Island), Hiren posted from Tokyo, and Chisako was at home in Sendai.  Chisako sounded quite happy about getting to face (and beat) wrestlers from her own generation and was proud that the "Cross Sisters" won the Fighting Spirit award.

Once their break is over, the next show on January 18th is a one-day tournament with just Sendai talent.  The prize is a shot at the OZ Academy championship.  This likely will take place at the February 24th Sendai show, which will be against OZ.  It's a single elimination tournament.  Tyrannosaurus Okuda meets Mari Harada in the 1st round, with the winner advancing to face Hiren.  On the other side of the bracket, DASH Chisako and Ryo Mizunami face each other and the winner gets Sendai Sachiko.  Meiko Satomura will make an appearance in a "talk show".  According to Pozen, Meiko may need another operation    *wail

The possibility of Meiko needing another operation sucks, I hope its not because of anything dodgy. I just watched the infamous tag match, but I honestly couldnt tell that Meiko's eyesocket had been done over that much.  The knee looked pretty sick but I couldnt tell that Meiko was busted up that bad.  I suppose I dont know how quickly something like that would swell tbh, but Meiko was sure sucking it up.

Some new Sendai info:

The winner of the one-day tournament on 1/18 will be getting a shot at the OZ Academy title. 

Sendai will be running two shows against OZ Academy in February.  These shows will be on the 23rd and 24th.  The first show is from Kesennuma-Shi General Welfare Hall.  Kesennuma is a small city north of Sendai.  The show on the 24th is from Zepp Sendai and will feature the OZ championship match between the OZ champ (presumably either Aja Kong or Carlos Amano depending on the results of this weekend's OZ show) and the Sendai tournament winner.

According to a blogger from Sendai, it sounds like they will be running a lot more shows this year (maybe up to 50) and they will be all over the Miyagi prefecture/Tohoku region (i.e. northern part of Honshu island).  I'm not sure exactly how they will get in so many shows.  I'm guessing that running one or two house shows in smaller cities when they bring up a group from Tokyo is something that will continue.  Maybe they'll do offer matches at Michinoku Pro shows.  Maybe Sendai will do the Hokkaido tour that AJW used to do once a year and NEO did last year?

And this is guesswork on my part, but I have a feeling that someone from Sendai is going to go heel and run off with Ozaki at the February show.  I think it's going to be Hiren, who has loyally seconded the younger and more successful wrestlers (esp. Okuda) so far, but will finally get frustrated and jealous.  Since Mayumi is "at war" with all of the regular Oz Academy members right now, maybe she'll try to form OZ Academy: The New Class.  It could inject some new life into OZ shows, particularly if Mika Nishio is able to ever start wrestling again.  Hopefully if anything remotely like this happens, it won't end up as lame as Saved By the Bell: The New Class.
Title: Re: SENDAI
Post by: Eivion on January 10, 2008, 05:27:54 PM
If your right hopefully it will involve more than just Hiren from SENDAI and maybe a member or two from IBUKI and Ito's Dojo. A lot of these younger wrestlers are really lacking personality to stand out and heel turns would certainly help.
Title: Re: SENDAI
Post by: Coffee on January 10, 2008, 11:47:17 PM
i hate to say this but the SENDAI packaging could be some sort of a hindrance to these girls coz instead of being recognized individually as wrestlers, they're often viewed as a single unit with rarely anything to identify them from each other
so heel turns could possibly help

as for OZ Academy, the new class, i don't know what to expect yet

There was a recent article about Sendai Girls in the Tohoku version of Nikkan Sports, as reported on Irving's new Joshi Queendom site http://joshipuro.puroresufan.com (http://joshipuro.puroresufan.com) which is part of the SSS network.  In addition to the news about Sendai planning on running a lot more shows in the Tohoku region this year and Satomura needing another operation at the end of the month, Sendai has accepted a new trainee.  The new trainee is a 15 year old from Osaka; she will move into the Sendai dojo in April after completing junior high.  President Jinsei Shinzaki is hoping to recruit a few more hometown girls from Sendai.

Oh, and here are some recent pictures of some of the girls.

I haven't found results of today's one-day tournament yet, but there was a late change in the brackets.  Essentially, Sendai Sachiko and Hiren's places were swapped.

So now we have:
1. Tyrannosaurus Okuda vs Mari Harada
2. DASH Chisako vs Ryo Mizunami
3. Okuda/Harada winner vs Sendai Sachiko (not Hiren)
4. Chisako/Mizunami winner vs Hiren (not Sachiko)
5. Finals
Title: Re: SENDAI
Post by: JOSH Chisako on January 18, 2008, 11:36:52 AM
Ok, here are the first set of results with the "one thread per promotion" idea.

This results are from the Sendai Girls homepage, http://www.purolove.com (http://www.purolove.com) and http://blog.bodymaker.jp/user/nobu/nobu (http://blog.bodymaker.jp/user/nobu/nobu).

SENDAI GIRLS Vol. 16 January 18, 2008
Zepp Sendai
500 Fans
One Day Tournament (for shot at OZ Academy Title)


1. First Round: Tyrannosaurus Okuda defeated Mari Harada (7:28) with a German Suplex Hold
2. First Round: Ryo Mizunami defeated DASH Chisako (6:54) by submission with a Triangle Choke Hold.
3. Semifinal: Sendai Sachiko defeated Tyrannosaurus Okuda (8:16) by submission with a Wakigatame.
4. Semifinal: Ryo Mizunami defeated Hiren (8:11) with an Uranage.
5. Final: Ryo Mizunami defeated Sendai Sachiko (8:46) with a Second Rope Guillotine Drop.

So they shook things up a bit by having Okuda lose and Mizunami win the tournament.  This is Okuda's first loss ever against one of her classmates and I think having Miz win 3 matches clearly establishes her as Okuda's main threat for #1 status among the non-Meiko members of the promotion-although those two haven't met in a match yet.  Sachiko also gets a nice little bump from beating Okuda; I don't think she's ever used a submission hold to gain a win before.  Hiren's still 0 for whatever and they are starting to talk about "she's getting close, but hasn't won yet".  Hiren is also the one who always works as the second when someone else has a big match.  I think they are building to Hiren eventually getting so frustrated and jealous of the younger girls having more success that she's the one who makes the first heel turn.

I also think there could be an Okuda-Mizunami singles match sometime in the next few months, possibly for the junior titles.  I think Okuda would win such a match, but will probably end up dropping the title back to JWP (and probably to freaking Arisa) this spring.

The attendance was down, probably partially because of no outside talent and no Meiko on the card and partially because it was snowing in Sendai.

Post by: DANgerous K on January 18, 2008, 11:54:18 AM
I had a feeling that Mizunami would win, what with her potentially having a higher ranking than the other girls.  I finally got to see a match from her GAEA period and enjoyed her going rookie apeshit on Aja, she's definitely got a natural flair for the wrestling.  I heard that she had good matchups againts Carlos so I am quite looking forward to their title match. Sweet.

A new announcement about a 16 woman tournament that Sendai will hold over shows to be held at Zepp Sendai in April, May, & June.  Unlike the WAR tournament last year, this tournament is restricted to wrestlers with no more than 3 years of experience.  Apparently the details will be given at Sendai's show in February as to who will participate and what the brackets will be. 

Oh, and to answer Kapeng's question, Mari Harada is the rookie.  She debuted this past November.

Harada looks like she has good aptitude from watching her in the latest puroking ep, she performed the usual rookie offence well.  She's a little bigger than I thought she might be as well, she looked like she would be the smallest Sendai girl yet but she definitely isnt.  She was crying her eyes out after her debut match bless her.
Title: Re: SENDAI
Post by: JOSH Chisako on January 24, 2008, 08:13:28 AM
I haven't seen Harada wrestle yet; I've only seen photos.  She's got the best outfit and I suggest that Hiren should wear the hot pants as well  *Oni*

If the size I saw for Harada is accurate, she's bigger than Chisako/Sachiko (who are pretty tiny) and smaller than Okuda/Hiren (who aren't exactly big).  Heck, Miz looks like a monster in Sendai Girls and she would have been short if she had been a rookie in AJW back in the 80s/early 90s.
Title: Re: SENDAI
Post by: DANgerous K on January 24, 2008, 08:25:46 AM
She's in the middle height wise for sure, but she looks like she's heading for an Okuda like build.  How many new girls are especially tall these days?  Funny thing on a related note, when I first saw Chikayo Nagashima I thought she was short, but I began to notice that hardly anybody from her gen was taller than her and she was actually taller than some and it doesn't even look like she wears lifts.  It was just when she was in with the AJW girls :) 
Yeah, the hot pants are much better and Hiren certainly has the figure.  Ahem.   *approve

She looks small to me, around the size of everyone else in SENDAI.


Anyways it sounds like SENDAI is choosing to be the replacement for JD's Princess league which I don't mind I suppose. Will be interesting to see who the participants are.

By "monster" I mean that she's an inch or so taller than Meiko :)

I didn't even think about this possibly replacing the JD Princess league.  Maybe they'll put the POP title on the line in the tournament and use this as the way to split the JWP Junior and POP titles.  Or maybe not.

As far as the JWP Junior title, I'm expecting that Okuda will defend it against another SENDAI wrestler, probably Miz, and then drop it back to Nakajima at JWP's April Korakuen Hall show. 

Participants: Well, I figure the 6 Sendai girls for sure, probably the 3 JWP juniors (Arisa, Ohki, Niizeki), a few people from S-Ovation/Ibuki like Hiroyo Matsumoto and Misaki Ohata (who is from Sendai).  I don't know if Cherry or Tomoka Nakagawa are eligible with the 3 year rule.  I could see Hanako Kobayashi and maybe someone else from Ito Dojo.  I have no idea who else.  Sendai and NEO have never run anything together before, but maybe you could get Aya Yuki and Nagisa Nozaki.  Aoi would be the only Ice Ribbon person that has a chance, as I don't think Sendai would use Makoto or the little girls.  Maybe LLPW can send Francoise so Hiren can finally make someone tap out  *haha

Here are today's results from the house show in Kesennuma (a small city north of Sendai).  The same crew will wrestle tomorrow afternoon at Zepp Sendai, with the main event being the Carlos Amano vs Ryo Mizunami match for Carlos's OZ title.

SENDAI GIRLS VOL. 17 February 23, 2008
Kesennuma-shi General Welfare Center
390 Fans


1. Chikayo Nagashima defeated Sendai Sachiko (11:42) with a Back Arm Throw.
2. Mayumi Ozaki defeated Hiren (12:41) with a Backfist.
3. Carlos Amano defeated DASH Chisako (12:38) with a German Suplex Hold.
4. Dynamite Kansai defeated Ryo Mizunami (5:57) with a Diving Foot Stomp.
5. Aja Kong defeated Tyrannosaurus Okuda (8:47) with a Vertical Brainbuster.

I'm not sure why Sendai's newest, Mari Harada, didn't compete.  She was on the banner on the homepage that they created to hype Senjo vs OZ.  She hasn't posted to her blog on the Sendai homepage in over a month, so it's possible she might have quit.  She could be hurt or there could be another reason.  I don't know the story.  The results are pretty humdrum, with another OZ wipeout of the youngsters. 
Title: Re: SENDAI

Here are today's Sendai results.  I gathered several bits of news from various bloggers that I'll talk about below.

SENDAI GIRLS VOL. 18 February 24, 2008
Zepp Sendai
700 Fans


1. Mayumi Ozaki defeated Sendai Sachiko (7:58) with the Tequila Sunrise.
2. Chikayo Nagashima defeated Hiren (11:24) with the Fisherman's Buster.
3. Dynamite Kansai defeated DASH Chisako (7:52) with the Splash Mountain.
4. Aja Kong defeated Tyrannosaurus Okuda (10:06) with the Vertical Brainbuster.
5. Oz Academy Openweight Title: Carlos Amano (c) defeated Ryo Mizunami (14:34) with a Cross Armbreaker.  Amano is successful in her 1st defense.

Various news:
-Jinsei Shinzaki appeared before the show to announce that due to illness (no details given), Mari Harada has been forced to give up pro-wrestling.  Harada then briefly appeared and thanked the crowd for their support in her short career.
-Meiko Satomura also appeared.  Still no timetable on her return
-After the Chikayo-Hiren match, Nagashima extended Hiren an invitation to join the Oz Academy.  Hiren was apparently non-committal, neither immediately rejecting or accepting the offer.
-Okuda got her ass kicked two nights in a row by Aja.  I bet she'll be sore tomorrow.
-Amano succeeds (as expected) in her first defense against Ryo Mizunami.  It sounds like it was a good match.
-Sendai's opponents for the March shows (Watari on the 14th and Zepp Sendai on the 15th) will be NEO.  NEO will be represented by Yoshiko Tamura, Etsuko Mita, Haruka Matsuo, Aya Yuki, and Nagisa Nozaki.  The main event at Zepp Sendai will be a JWP Jr/POP title match between Okuda and Aya Yuki.
-The participants in Sendai's youth tournament (3 years or less experience) that will start in April will be announced at the March 15th show.
Title: Re: SENDAI
Post by: JOSH Chisako on February 24, 2008, 09:53:18 AM
Apparently Hiren does like the idea of playing with the Oz Academy, as the OZ blog has announced a March 9th match (their next show) with Chikayo Nagahima and Hiren teaming up against Carlos Amano and Dynamite Kansai.  I think the idea is that Carlos and Chikayo are basically trying to create a new version of the Oz Academy.  I can't imagine Ozaki will take this really well, along with being officially left off the card for Oz's next show.
Title: Re: SENDAI
Post by: Eivion on February 24, 2008, 10:02:16 AM
You called it somewhat with Hiren being the one to get the offer to join Oz though not exactly for a new Ozaki heel stable. Should be interesting to see where that goes.

Amano vs. Mizunami should be good. I can imagine those two meshing well actually.

Can't say I'm terribly excited for the NEO show. Would have liked Genki to come along.

The youth tournament might be interesting depending on the participants and how its used.
Title: Re: SENDAI
Post by: DANgerous K on February 24, 2008, 01:15:46 PM
Don't mind the NEO show, some room for wins for the Sendai crew there.  It's a shame about Mari.  She looked like she would have some skills.  The illness thing seems a little odd, but either way I hope everything works out for her.
I'm pretty neutral about the whole Hiren thing.  I'm gonna have to wait to see how that works for her, but I don't expect to see her start picking up any wins either way.
One thing, those two OZ shows kind of brought home how important having Meiko active can be.  There was no way anybody was going to get a win against any of the OZ girls and if it's hard to send a crowd home repeatedly without any wins for the home team so often.

Oh they got creamed for sure.  I bet Hiren had a good showing, for the OZ angle, and the Miz title match will have been good and open, if probably never looking in doubt, as well, but there was definitely a whole lot of butt whip going on.  But against NEO Aya and Nozaki have a good chance of losing, which would be nice to see. The other three will be killing some Sendai fools...

I was looking at the list of girls under 3 years of experience. I don't suppose if there's info regarding whether its girls who debuted after April 2005? Or January 2005?

Girls who debuted 4/2005 and after:

Ayumi Kurihara
Aoi Kizuki
Miki Ishii
Ayako Sato
Arisa Nakajima
Mika Mizunuma
Yuri Urai
Hiroyo Matsumoto
Misaki Ohata
Hanako Kobayashi
Aya Yuki
Makoto
YUKA
Nagisa Nozaki
Asuka Ohki
Io Shirai
Mio Shirai
all the SENDAI GIRLS
all the Ice Ribbon girls

If it's 1/2005 then Tomoka Nakagawa and Moeka Haruhi are also eligible.

I agree, even though I doubt it will happen. I think all the various joshi promotions are in the Tokyo area, and I think it'll be diffuclt that some experienced wrestler would decide to pack everything and move to Sendai on a full basis.
How far is Sendai from Tokyo, BTW ?
Title: Re: SENDAI
Post by: Eivion on February 26, 2008, 03:37:30 AM
No idea, but far enough that Meiko is the only person from the original vet crew who actually stayed. Ask OJ. He should know how far.
Title: Re: SENDAI
Post by: DANgerous K on February 26, 2008, 09:11:37 AM
He said about an hour and half by train from tokyo in another thread
Title: Re: SENDAI
Post by: JOSH Chisako on February 26, 2008, 09:39:43 AM
I think Tokyo-Sendai is 90-120 minutes by shinkasen and several hours (5,6,more?) by bus or car.  It's far enough away that people who live in Tokyo and have friends/family in the Tokyo area would think hard about making the move, especially since moving to Sendai would cut down on the number of freelance dates in Tokyo that a wrestler could work.

In Meiko's case, I think it was a combination of the challenge of starting a new promotion and training new wrestlers, Sendai being closer to her hometown of Niigata, and not minding working a lighter schedule (although that didn't save her from Hyuga) that made her willing to make the move.  I have no idea if other veterans were approached to work for Sendai or not.  Unfortunately, with Satomura out a long time with the serious injury, it does hurt the promotion since there are no other veterans and the youngsters have to make it right away.  They've been pretty lucky that the rookies are good, but it makes booking hard against groups like OZ that are all established veterans who aren't jobbing to 18 year olds.  At least with Ibuki, JWP, NEO, they have some wrestlers of the same age where the result of a match can actually be in doubt.

 I expect the Sendai roster to get booked pretty strongly in the youth tournament coming up in a few months, since these are all matches that they can realistically get booked to win.  I predict either Okuda or Miz wins this tourney.

Title: Re: SENDAI

is Arisa still eligible for this? If she is I thinking a final between her and Okuda personally.
Title: Re: SENDAI
Post by: luckycleareyes on February 26, 2008, 02:25:01 PM
Arisa is eligible for it. I've gotten the impression she's been losing quite a bit though after dropping the JWP Jr/POP title to Okuda, while Matsumoto has been on a tear. Granted Matsumoto's push will most likely end when Matsuo defend against her.

Arisa did win the MVP of the Jr. All Stars however... and it would be a re-match if her opponent is Okuda.

(http://www.sanspo.com/tohoku/top/th200803/image/08030602SPM00030G080305T.jpg)

Apparently Meiko is planning on a trip to Thailand for 10 days to study Muay Thai techniques in May or June, once she gets the approval from the doctor to resume vigorous exercise.  To let her eye socket heal, she's only been able to do mild exercise like walking and she's upset about "getting soft".  So the Thailand trip is the first step to getting back in ring shape and returning to action.

I want to see Meiko learn some new cool kicks in Thailand and kick the poo out of Hyuga!  *approve

Who sterted calling them European uppercuts? Must have been some youngster. I prefer Gordon Solie's call of bolo like forearms. Ali used to punch like that and it was the bolo punch. I forget who Ali stole that move from.

I'm glad to see that Meiko is taking her time in rehab and waiting to heal.

Here are the cards for the Senjo vs NEO shows this weekend.  Nagisa Nozaki is apparently hurt or sick, as NEO pulled her off of these shows and sent Misae Genki in her place.  This sucks for Sendai, as the number of matches they are winning out of 10 just dropped from 3 to 1. Aya Yuki will win on Friday since she's wrestling for the junior titles on Saturday, then Okuda will retain.  No one is beating Matsuo or Mita or Tamura.  It's nice to see the tradition of putting DASH up against the biggest tallest people we can find continues.

I kind of wanted to see Okuda vs Tamura, but they chose not to do that.

Meiko Satomura appeared on local radio and our Sendai blogger Nobu (http://blog.bodymaker.jp/user/nobu/nobu/ (http://blog.bodymaker.jp/user/nobu/nobu/)) told us what she said.

Apparently Okuda and Hiren are both suffering from hay fever/allergies right now.

Meiko likes to cook Thai food and "green curry" is her favorite.  On the topic of Thailand, it sounds like Meiko's trip to learn Muay Thai techniques will happen in June.

Two new trainees will be joining the Sendai dojo in the next month or so.  One (previously reported) is a 15 year old from Osaka who passed an audition a few months ago and is moving to Sendai in April after she graduates from junior high.  The other just passed an audition and is a "daughter of Sendai" (hometown girl).  Her age wasn't given, but she is almost 170cm tall, which will make her several inches taller than anyone else on the roster (for comparison, 2.5cm is about 1 inch, Meiko is 157 cm, Miz is 160cm, DASH is about 150 cm).  If all goes well, I'd expect debuts in the late summer or fall.

Title: Re: SENDAI
Post by: AirRaidCrush on March 12, 2008, 12:02:25 PM
Well, they aren't really short compared to the national average, are they? A woman that's 170cm in Japan is like a woman that's 6' tall in America. I mean, the average height in Japan has grown in the modern era because of dietary changes, but there are limits. The sakaki-san joke was just there because I'm an Azumanga Daioh fan and the idea of a really tall girl going into wrestling straight out of highschool has "manga" written all over it, at least for me.

They aren't much smaller than Meiko, right? And she never looks particularly tiny on-screen. It's all a matter of scale. American wrestlers all look normally sized on TV, until you see them next to regular people, at which point they look like tall, massive freaks of nature. I remember the first time I saw Maria Sharapova on Regis & Kelly...she dwarfed both of them. Granted, Regis is short, but still...she looked almsot uncomfortable, like an adult sitting in a kindergarten chair. Yet on a tennis court, she looks normal, because of the scale and the fact that a lot of female tennis players are around 6' tall (Sharapova is 6'2")

4. Misae Genki defeated DASH Chisako (5:33) by submission.
5. Haruka Matsuo defeated Tyrannosaurus Okuda (15:33) with a Diving Body Press.

I just have the bare results, so I don't know if/how they dealt with the Hiren heel turn in OZ Academy.  Very standard results, especially since Aya Yuki had to win today since she's going for the junior double titles tomorrow and Nozaki wasn't there to job.  I'm disappointed in Chisako only getting 5 minutes against Genki-she's done plenty of longer matches against big grumpy veterans.

mixed reactions on the results regarding satomura jr

(i think okuda has the charisma)
although i felt bad that okuda is just booked as a filler while waiting for kyoko inoue to return, i don't see her with the POP, JWP jr and NEO/NWA titles all at the same time
Title: Re: SENDAI
Post by: DANgerous K on March 14, 2008, 03:57:18 PM
It was the main event but it wasn't for the titles, Kap.

Personally, I think the the Diving body press was a pretty little lackluster finish too, but thinking about it logically the Dragon suplex is Haruka's top knockout finisher, which as champ she shouldn't be using on a one year rookie and the MAC is her desperation trick to beat the bigger/higher ranking girls so she shouldnt be using that either.  Dunno. Problematic.  How much did DASH p**s off Genki?
Title: Re: SENDAI
Post by: Eivion on March 14, 2008, 04:02:54 PM
The finish is fine. Okuda is getting a bit overrated if people think its wrong for her to lose to a diving body press in general, let alone while she is still technically a rookie.

The attendance is (maybe) a bit down.  I don't know if NEO isn't a draw or if people are getting tired of seeing little girls job or if the 700 they usually report has been B.S.

I've got a report and photos from Nobu (http://blog.bodymaker.jp/user/nobu/nobu/category_796.html (http://blog.bodymaker.jp/user/nobu/nobu/category_796.html)) and more photos from this guy (http://blogs.yahoo.co.jp/tpswsv2/GALLERY/gallery.html (http://blogs.yahoo.co.jp/tpswsv2/GALLERY/gallery.html)).  Nobu got Meiko to autograph the Sendai scarf he bought.

It seems like the Hiren heel turn in OZ Academy was completely no-sold in Sendai, as she wore her usual outfit and nothing seems to indicate she was anything but the typical Hiren, trying and failing to get anyone to submit to her ankle hold.  It sounds like Chisako got the snot beat out of her with Mita's blazing chops before the predictable finisher.  I wonder if they say "WHOOOOOOOOO" in Sendai?

Okuda was successful in her title defense for the 3rd time and was the only win over the two days against NEO, without Nozaki to job.  At least the next few months of shows are the youth tournament, which I expect the Sendai Girls to get booked strongly in, as there won't be people they HAVE to lose to.  The participants are in the regular Sendai thread in the Modern Joshi folder.

The participants (except for one) for the Sendai youth tournament, starting on April 20th and running through May and June, have been announced. 

Go here to see the poster:
http://blogs.yahoo.co.jp/tpswsv2/31273083.html (http://blogs.yahoo.co.jp/tpswsv2/31273083.html)

(http://blog.bodymaker.jp/user/nobu/files/jyajya.jpg)

So we have Sendai's Tyrannosaurus Okuda, DASH Chisako, Hiren, Sendai Sachiko, & Ryo Mizunami, Ito Dojo's Hanako Kobayashi & Ayako Sato, free-lancer Kana, Ibuki's Hiroyo Matsumoto & Misaki Ohata, JWP's Arisa Nakajima, Asuka Ohki (??), & Mayuka Niizeki, and Team MAKEHEN's Io Shirai, Mio Shirai, and Mika Mizunuma (when did Mika join MAKEHEN?).

The question is about Asuka Ohki.  She's on the poster, but the second picture, which looks like a GAORA graphic, has 15 people without Ohki.  Ohki's missed the last few JWP shows due to an unspecified injury and it looks like she will miss the tourney.

No match-ups or a possible replacement for Asuka have been named yet.  I expect a Sendai Girls will win the tourney, either Okuda or Miz (who I predict will meet in the semi-final).  I think the other Sendai girls will fare well as well, less jobbing than usual.  Maybe Hiren will find someone to job to her ankle hold or Ozaki will teach her how to cheat to win. The obvious choices to go far from the outsiders are Arisa & Hiroyo.  Ayako Sato could do well as well.

Please book DASH to kick Io's ass in the first round!

So what do you have against Io?

Anyways its about what I expected. Don't see Matsumoto winning this at all. This is likely just going to be more about the feud between Okuda and Arisa though I hope they take the time to give Hiren, Ohata, Mizunami, &/or Matsumoto somewhat of a push during this.

The 700 number is likely bs, but thats more general thing promotions do with buildings (larger number than they actually can hold). I would say people don't want to watch the girls constantly losing. Not to mention there is still the need of personalities and whatnot to set them apart to add the the emotional investment.

I have nothing against Io, I just think it would be kind of neat for them to play up the end of the Jr. All Stars match.  After Chisako beat Mio, Io was screaming at her and DASH just blew her off with a dismissive little handwave.

Whether it's this combination or a different one, they should do one Kanari vs Shirai match in the first round.

Well, when New Japan ran there in 07 during their "Circuit SOUL" tour, they claimed 515 and 575, both No Vacancy claims, so take that for what it's worth.  The Zepp Sendai website claims it can only hold 617 people, so I would deduce that the building can hold around 400 people, with the ring in and everything.

Okuda losing to Haruka I think has more to do with the NEO/NWA titles being "higher" than the JWP Jr./POP titles than anything else.  I mean, if Okuda was to win, or if they were to go to a draw, it would lower Haruka's stock as NEO's main champion.  For as much as I "BELIEVE IN THE OKUDA!!!" this was the only reasonable result in a match between the two.  A promotion's main champion should beat a Jr. champion any day of the week...I think having Okuda lose to a diving body press kinda negates her outstanding match against Aja and lowers the JWP Jr./POP titles as far as "stock" goes, and would much rather have had Okuda lose to the Dragon Suplex Hold, but still, in this match, Okuda had to lose or else put more of an "unworthy" stigma on Haruka as NEO/NWA champ than she's already got.

Wow, Matsuo pins Satomura II like a jobber. You'd think she deserved at least The MAC.
It was 15 minutes-plus and not really any way to tell if it was "like a jobber." Even still, it's probably the overall results that makes it seem like "par for the course."

(and who used the ankle lock first? ken shamrock or kurt angle?)
Title: Re: SENDAI
Post by: AirRaidCrush on March 17, 2008, 04:01:46 PM
Shamrock was using the ankle lock as a finisher before Kurt Angle was. That was Shamrock's thing...I seem to recall that around the time Angle was coming in, Shamrock decided to quit wrestling and go back to MMA, so that's how Angle wound up with it. When he first debuted on TV, he was using the Angle Slam exclusively. For a brief period of time, he also "took" Bob Backlund's crossface chickenwing during a feud. I think.
Title: Re: SENDAI
Post by: Coffee on March 17, 2008, 04:49:27 PM
hmm, shamrock and angle were great wrestlers who both used the ankle lock as finisher. but their moveset is not limited to it. the same thing should work for hiren then

i think her heel turn would help in making people see her other than a "jobber" coz if she is THAT talented, it's about damned time that she get out of that jobbing rut
Title: Re: SENDAI
Post by: Coffee on March 17, 2008, 06:39:36 PM
so the Hiren heel turn got no sold in SENDAI so it's more like SENDAI (the city) can't find in its heart to boo hiren after all in the same way that they can't boo misaki ohata coz she's a local of SENDAI (the city)

It's more likely most of the Sendai fans don't know about the heel turn.  They usually announce the results of the Sendai Girls' matches in other promotions on their homepage, but they haven't said a word about Hiren's match in OZ and that episode of OZ won't be televised in Japan until next month.  So only the people who read the OZ Academy webpage or JoshiFans  *haha would know.

Post by: DANgerous K on March 18, 2008, 03:47:45 AM
I'm just in the process of uploading the latest Sendai, but I watched it last night and Hiren got to show a lot more spirit than maybe she has before and she was really on.  I can definitely see her start to pick up a win sooner rather than later and when she does it wont just be a fluke.  Her match with Chikayo was great and her vocalising made it even more fun.  She sounded very Toyota-ish when saying No! to Chikayo asking her to give up! and was intense on the ankle lock.
Title: Re: SENDAI
Post by: Coffee on March 18, 2008, 07:14:05 AM
is the ankle lock the only finisher hiren could pull off? she'd better widen her moveset if she wanted to be taken seriously. besides the people associated with the ankle lock are a little unpopular
Title: Re: SENDAI
Post by: DANgerous K on March 18, 2008, 08:58:46 AM
Nobody really uses the ankle lock in Japan that much and not many know Angle and if they know Ken Shamrock it will be through MMA which I'm sure didnt/doesn't have a lot of him attempting pro wrestling style ankle locks.  But yeah, she could maybe expand her moveset a little but that will come eventually.  All the girls were showing a lot of passion in their matches and the Oz title match was good stuff. 
Damn, though. It's a real shame about Mari Harada.  Her last match is on the puro king show, against Okuda, and she just really looks like she was going to be great.  Her 'retirement' speech so to speak is on there as well and is pretty saddening.  She's a big loss to them.

Some kind of illness.  She was writing a lot about it on her blog before the announcement and it seemed like something she couldnt shake it.  From the poor google translation it seemed to have something to do with her breathing.  Maybe a really bad case of asthma?

Actually, I think I figured out the reason that Hiren's heel turn was not mentioned in Sendai.  It turns out that Senjo vs NEO was not taped for GAORA's Puroresu King program.  So for continuity on Puroresu King, I think the heel turn will be revealed at the Youth Tournament next month (which is making TV).

I'll refrain from making the first comment that comes to mind.

But I think it would be kinda cool if Okuda wore kneepads, then she could pull them down, kinda like how Kojima pulls his elbowpad off before giving the big LARIATOOOOO, but before she busts out with the Enzui knee off the top.

And I've got a sneaking suspision that Hiren wears knee pads under her pants...
Title: Re: SENDAI
Post by: AirRaidCrush on March 24, 2008, 10:24:05 AM
It just struck me as unusual, since I almost never see wrestlers without kneepads who wear wrestling shoes instead of boots. Kurt Angle is the only other one I know of who rocks that style. Takeshi Morishima doesn't wear kneepads, but he also doesn't do any flying moves, and he's wearing boots. I guess Yoshida is another one who wears wrestling shoes and no pads, but she's got tights on...it's just weird to see that much leg.

Does she wear boots or wrestling shoes? Boots without kneepads aren't that unusual for wrestlers who spend most of their time on the ground. Wrestling shows with bare legs and no kneepads looks odd, because that's how amateur wrestlers dress.

Probably is, but that was also a case where Meiko had been winning all the damn time and needed a loss if only to create some interest in a potential rematch.

Honestly I think this tournament could go either way. We will get an idea once the tournament begins. In general w/o Meiko there is a need for a strong figure with Sendai and this is a good opportunity to create one. If any Sendai girls win it would likely be Okuda or Mizunami. The sisters are pretty much out of the question. Hiren I think has a small chance depending how/if they play up to her heel turn. Other than them I could see Arisa winning.

Hard to tell right now, I haven't found anything about the tv situation other than this small tidbit. There are only 2 Puroresu King episodes scheduled for all of April right know (a K-DOJO show and the 3/9 OZ event) which is very strange because there usually are 5 episodes a month. In the past, the full schedule of the upcoming month was online at least 2 or 3 weeks in advance, so the 2 shows might be it for now. GAORA TV is currently revamping it's Dragon Gate programming...maybe they'll change PK as well in the near future?

There was a blurb of news on the Sendai homepage.  Meiko Satomura is going to appear on the S-Arena talk show on Samurai! TV and they are also going to run a special about the Sendai Girls promotion.  It sounds to me like SENDAI is switching from GAORA to Samurai!

It depends on whether Samurai! gives SENDAI a 2 hour or 1 hour slot and how often they get to have shows.  JWP on Samurai has 2 hour slots and the matches were complete or close to, but only a few shows per year.  When SUN was on Samurai, the shows were usually only 1 hour long and matches were usually clipped to pieces.

Another Sendai tidbit from local blogger Nobu.  There was a little piece on SENDAI GIRLS on TV there and one of the new trainees is in the dojo.  Her name is "庄司真子".  I googled that name-there's a Japanese woman living in the US with the same kanji and the name was Masako Shoji in English.  There were also some Google hits from Japanese sites involving swimming, so if it's this girl, she must have a swimming background. If so, that's good because she'll be fit and used to an insane amount of training.

She's only 15 and was described as "tall".  Apparently they had her do a thousand knee squats, so I guess the GAEA training methods live on  *bwah

The 16th and final participant was announced for the Sendai Youth tournament and this person is a big surprise to me, as it is someone from Ice Ribbon.  No, it's not Makoto or Riho.  Aoi Kizuki would make sense but she's injured.

 It's 牧場みのり (I don't have a good translation for her name).  I looked on the Ice Ribbon page and she's 15 (born Nov. 1992).  She's the kind of chubby girl that I think I've seen before when the Ice Ribbon girls have been hanging around at NEO events.

The first round matchups haven't been annoucned, but  I have a feeling that we just found the first person to tap out to Hiren; our girl from Ice Ribbon.  They can have Hiren be unnecessarily mean to her and then turn on the crowd and officially announce that she's gone OZ Academy.  She should get a new outfit as well to complete the turn and make her stand out (isn't that the point of her heel turn?), as Hiren was still wearing her Sendai uniform when she tagged with Ozaki.  That makes no sense to me.

Here are the 16 participants and ages:
SENDAI: Hiren (22), Ryo Mizunami (20), DASH Chisako (19), Tyrannosaurus Okuda (18), Sendai Sachiko (18)
JWP: Arisa Nakajima (19-I just missed her birthday on Sunday and need to send a belated card), Mayuka Niizeki (16)
Ibuki: Hiroyo Matsumoto (22), Misaki Ohata (19)
Ito Dojo: Ayako Sato (22), Hanako Kobayashi (19)
Team MAKEHEN: Mika Mizunuma (21), Mio Shirai (20), Io Shirai (17)
Ice Ribbon: What's her name (15)
Freelance: Kana (27-damn you're old!)


Title: Re: SENDAI
Post by: DANgerous K on April 09, 2008, 09:34:38 AM
I saw the Ice ribbon girl on one of the shows that went up on the torrents and she seems pretty decent, so that I'm not surprised she is taking part. She is nowhere near as flashy as someone like Io but she can probably work just as well at this point.  She has the same thing as Genki in that her voice can't quite handle it while she's screaming in the ring. 
Her name is Minori Makiba and she is short (i'd say head and shoulders shorter than most of the other girls, although she could have grown a bit by then) and indeed chubby.  She works a sort of Judo/power-offense with a lot of throwing and submission attempts.

I noticed several of the Sendai girls have died their hair black, including Hiren.  Don't know if Hiren doing it has anything to do with her Oz academy stuff.

(http://www.sendaigirls.jp/cgi-bin/images/tournament/logo.jpg)

(http://www.sendaigirls.jp/cgi-bin/images/tournament/card.jpg)

First round matches (April 20)

A. Sendai Sachiko vs Mio Shirai
B. Misaki Ohata vs Ayako Sato
C. Hiren vs Arisa Nakajima
D. Ryo Mizunami vs Minori Makiba
E. Tyrannosaurus Okuda vs Hanako Kobayashi
F. DASH Chisako vs Kana
G. Mayuka Niizeki vs Io Shirai
H. Hiroyo Matsumoto vs Mika Mizunuma

Quarterfinals (May 23)
A vs B
C vs D
E vs F
G vs H

Semifinals/Finals (June 27)
AB vs CD
EF vs GH
Final

Comments :
I'm not shocked by having a Kanari vs Shirai match-up.  I thought it might have been DASH vs Io, but they went with Sachiko vs Mio.  I am shocked that Hiren is getting fed to Arisa Nakajima.  I thought a Sendai Girl was going to be sacrificed to Arisa in Round 1, but I figured it would be either DASH or Sachiko (whichever one wasn't wrestling a Shirai).

If they are turning Hiren heel, why put her against the girl that the Sendai crowd probably hates the most?  If they aren't turning Hiren heel, then what's all the OZ Academy stuff for?  I would have had the Ice Ribbon girl job to Hiren and end that career-long losing streak, but she's gonna get squashed by Ryo instead.  Okuda and Miz are wrestling against Arisa and Kana at the JWP show on 4/29, so I think return matches are being set up for the quarterfinals.  Hiroyo gets the girl that's bigger than her.

My predictions for the winners are:
A. Sendai Sachiko (Kanari girls own the Shirais)
B. Ayako Sato (both Ito Dojo girls aren't going out and Hanako ain't beating Okuda)
C. Arisa (sorry Hiren)
D. Miz (lol)
E. Okuda (of course)
F. Kana (sorry DASH, yer a jobber)
G. Io (someone from MAKEHEN has to win)
H. Hiroyo (she'll throw the fat girl around)

I wouldn't think it takes a genius to pick most of this tourney, but a lot of the tourneys tend to have one or two weird results in them. Maybe not so much in this format, compared to a points style system like the JWP one that is coming to a close, but I can actually see Hanako over Okuda, which would probably mean Misaki over Sato.   This likely wont happen, as it will doubtless be Arisa (after going through the other Sendai Girls, Sachiko and Miz) versus Okuda in the final, with the pair drawing, leading to either Arisa demanding a title match, or less likely, Okuda vacating the belts and jwp arranging something to contest for them at a later date.

I can't see Okuda possibly losing in the first round. That is Hiren and DASH's job. If you are looking for a suprise result, I see Ayako Sato as the tournament "darkhorse".  She could upset Arisa in the semifinals and set up an Ito Dojo vs Sendai Girls final, just like the big girls tourney last year. But yeah, Okuda-Nakajima is the "obvious" booking.

The two new trainees have moved in to the Sendai dojo and have begun training, as reported at http://www.sanspo.com/tohoku/top/th200804/th2008041501.html (http://www.sanspo.com/tohoku/top/th200804/th2008041501.html)

(http://www.sanspo.com/tohoku/top/th200804/image/08041501SPM00024G080414T.jpg)

They are both just 15.  The girl on the left in the picture is Yukari Ishino, from Osaka. She's 158 cm and 57 kg, so about the same height/build as Hiren.  The girl on the right is Mako (or Masako) Shoji, from Sendai.  She's the biggest girl in the group at 167 cm and 75 kg. 

The article also talked about how a typical day goes in the dojo and the rules.  Suffice it to say that Meiko is old-school and these girls are living under the Zenjo/GAEA rules.  NO drinking, smoking, boys, curfew at 9 PM, yadda yadda yadda.  No wonder Hiren wants to hang out with Ozaki and KAORU and Takako  *bwah

well, i remember seeing a pic of OZ with a cigarette inserted on her lips
i don't know if it's just for the sake of her badass gimmick or she really smoked

no drinking, smoking, boys ... in short the straight edge lifestyle (or as one time JBL noted, "the boring lifestyle")

Anyway on the subject of the SENDAI Tourney... wouldn't it make sense to save Okuda/Nakajima for their eventual rematch for the Double Jr titles? I mean am I wrong in thinking that is going to happen?

SENDAI Girls April 20, 2008
Zepp Sendai
Youth Tournament
700 Fans


1. Ryo Mizunami defeated Minori Makiba (6:32) by submission with a Shoulder Hold.
2. Arisa Nakajima defeated Hiren (8:14) with the Cutie Special.
3. Ayako Sato defeated Misaki Ohata (10:36) with a Missile Dropkick.
4. Sendai Sachiko defeated Mio Shirai (9:07) with a German Suplex Hold.
5. Hiroyo Matsumoto defeated Mika Mizunuma (9:58) with a Back Elbow.
6. Io Shirai defeated Mayuka Niizeki (9:02) with a Lionsault.
7. Kana defeated DASH Chisako (13:56) with the Billiken (?).
8. Tyrannosaurus Okuda defeated Hanako Kobayashi (14:49) with a German Suplex.

So the person I expected won every single match.  #1 was a pretty easy win for Miz, as it should be, using the shoulder hold submission rather than the guillotine drop.  I'm interested in how (if at all) the whole "Hiren is a heel in OZ Academy" was dealt with in #2.

I see Io is copping moves from Chris Jericho now  *haha 

I don't know what that finisher is for Kana and I wouldn't doubt if this is a botched translation.  Anyone with insight, please chime in.  Poor DASH, just good enough to work semi main events but never to win them.  I think she is to Sendai Girls as Toshie was to GAEA, there to make others look good.

Okuda and Kobayashi went a full 15 minutes.  I'd like to see either Okuda or Sachiko start using another suplex variation instead of having both use Germans.  Since Okuda also has the knee attack finishers, I'd make Sendai Sachiko into Suplex Sachiko and eventually have her using several suplex variations.

The quarterfinals are on May 23rd and it will be Mizunami vs Nakajima, Sato vs Sachiko, Matsumoto vs Io, and Okuda vs Kana.  By the way, at the JWP show on 4/29,  there will be a tag match with Okuda & Miz vs Arisa & Kana.

I've found some blogger reports with photos.

NOBU, our Sendai native and the Internet's biggest Senjo fan, enjoyed the show.  He thought the Kana vs Chisako match was the best of the evening.  I guess the deal with Hiren is she is living two lives: she's like the kid who is a goody-goody during school, but then sneaks off to hang out with the skanky tramps after school.

http://blog.bodymaker.jp/user/nobu/nobu/14433.html (http://blog.bodymaker.jp/user/nobu/nobu/14433.html)

This guy made several posts with photos of the show.  He also enjoyed the show and mentioned that the crowd was enthusiastic for everyone, not just the local girls.  He wondered if there were some joshi fans from Tokyo who traveled up for this show, especially since there weren't any joshi shows in Tokyo this weekend, as NEO and JWP were out of town. http://blogs.yahoo.co.jp/tpswsv2/archive/2008/04/20 (http://blogs.yahoo.co.jp/tpswsv2/archive/2008/04/20)

Nothing interesting happening from the looks of it. Pulling for Mizunami to take this in a final against Kana.

And I mean a bunch, he has Io's 619 almost frame-for-frame.

Not sure if they'll post or not...

From these photos it looks like Niizeki ducked the 619 and then Io transitioned into a standing moonsault or quebrada for the pinfall win. Pretty slick finish.

And I'll throw a Mio pic in there for Kori...

A couple of pieces of news from SENDAI.

First, they will be wrestling on Saturday 4/26 at the Arabaki Rock Fest.  This is a 2 day outdoor music festival with several stages, booths for artists, and the like.  Sendai Girls and Michinoku Pro worked this event last year as well (Sendai on Saturday and M-Pro on Sunday).  No card is given, but they are bringing up Aja Kong this year.  Last year they brought in Carlos Amano and had 3 matches in a ring set up outside and I guess they'll do the same this year.  Maybe DASH will play her guitar after her match!

Here's a picture from last year's rock festival.

Also, the matches for the 2nd round of the Youth Tournament have been announced.  In addition to the quarterfinals, the 8 losing wrestlers from the 1st round will appear in tag matches.

Title: Re: SENDAI
Post by: JOSH Chisako on April 25, 2008, 08:39:43 AM
yes

Hopefully Mizunami wins this thing. I would be a little surprised if Her and Nakajima aren't the main event for the next show.

I'd expect either Miz/Arisa or Okuda/Kana to be the main, with the other as the semi-main.  I think the Miz/Arisa match result will pretty much tell you how the rest of the tourney is being booked.  If Arisa wins, I expect the predictable Nakajima/Okuda final where Okuda is the heroine who beats Arisa after she's ran through the rest of the roster (Arisa could potentially face Sendai Sachiko in the semifinal).  If Miz wins, then everything is opened up and we could see Okuda upset by Kana or Hiroyo.  If anyone but Okuda wins, that girl would clearly have a strong claim for a junior titles shot.

I agree with Eivion.  I'd like to see Miz win the tourney, with Okuda getting upset by either Kana or Hiroyo.  This isn't because I don't like Okuda (I do), but I think a Miz-Okuda title match at the 2nd Anniversary show in July would be good, as it would be not only for the title but for the top spot in the Sendai Girls pecking order (behind Meiko, of course).  Hopefully Meiko will be back in the ring in another month or two and can have a few matches before the anniversary show-it would be a real shame if she isn't back by then.

2. Tyrannosaurus Okuda defeated DASH Chisako (9:41) with a German Suplex Hold.
3. Aja Kong defeated Sendai Sachiko (9:45) with a Diving Elbow Drop.

Arabaki Rock Fest is a big 2 day outdoor music festival near Sendai.  There are several stages with bands and the like.  For the past few years, Sendai & Michinoku Pro have put on small shows in an outdoor ring, with Sendai Girls on Saturday and M-Pro on Sunday.  It's just a glorified dojo show, but they are there to publicize their promotion with what I would guess would be a fairly young crowd.
Title: Re: SENDAI
Post by: Coffee on April 26, 2008, 09:51:36 AM
with aja making appearances at SENDAI, they should try to tweak her appearances into a storyline
with her invading SENDAI, taking advantage of the fact that satomura can't wrestle, this would be a good opportunity for okuda to prove that she can keep the company in good condition despite the presence of monstrous invaders such as aja

then again, SENDAI's minor concern is a storyline in the long term
the hiren heel turn was no-sold at the said fed and look ... she jobbed again, this time to Miz
they're more into tournaments lately than actual storylines (first the Zenjo tourney, now the Youth tourney)

Tyrannosaurus Okuda vs DASH Chisako-in which the argument over whether to see lame emo bands (DASH's choice) or cool real rock bands (Okuda's choice) later that day was decided by the result of this match.

Nope "Holding Out For a Hero" is indeed by Bonnie Tyler. I believe its from the Footloose soundtrack. Maybe the 80s music is more fo Jinsei's atempt to make SENDAI seem more like a fed from the 80s. I still love Jinsei's training segment with Okuda from a few months back, her working out like crazy while he just sits there wearing a suit nodding. He should dump the monk gimmick and become the Vinnie Mac of Michinoku and Sendai!

I have a hard time imagining any teenage Japanese girl would have ever heard of Bonnie Tyler.  I think they picked that song for her because it kind of has the same vibe as Meiko's "Rock Your Life Away. It's big bombastic underdog babyface heroine music.

I don't much care for the Cyndi Lauper "Girls Just Want to Have Fun" that Sachiko uses either.  Chisako's song is pretty lame-o pop punk (by a group called B-DASH, hence her new name), but I think that's the music that she is into so it makes sense.  I actually kind of like Hiren's music, even though I have no idea who does it.

1. Hiren & Misaki Ohata defeated Mio Shirai & Minori Makiba (8:53) when Ohata pinned Makiba with a Jackknife-Style Cradle.
2. DASH Chisako & Mika Mizunuma defeated Hanako Kobayashi & Pinkie Mayuka (13:39) when Chisako made Mayuka submit to a Crab Hold.
3. Quarterfinal: Ayako Sato defeated Sendai Sachiko (10:24) with a German Suplex Hold.
4. Quarterfinal: Hiroyo Matsumoto defeated Io Shirai (4:50) with a Backdrop.
5. Quarterfinal: Tyrannosaurus Okuda defeated Kana (11:42) with a Billiken Counter.
6. Quarterfinal: Ryo Mizunami defeated Arisa Nakajima (13:42) by submission with a Shoulder Lock.

A good day for the Sendai Girls, as they win 4 out of 5 matches.  Poor Hiren still can't actually get the pinfall herself, as Ohata gets the job done in the opener.  Only Sachiko loses for Sendai today, as Ayako Sato bests her in the dropkick/German suplex battle.

Io gets treated like a little jobber by Hiroyo, Okuda has an answer for the flying butt attack, and Miz gets a big win in the main event against Nakajima.  The semifinals next month will be Sato-Miz and Okuda-Hiroyo, with the final at the same event.  Remember that Okuda is defending the JWP/POP junior belts against Arisa (despite her 2 recent losses to Okuda & Miz) at the JWP show in Osaka in early June.  I wouldn't be surprised to see some WWE style booking and see Arisa get the belt back, Miz win the tournament and thus be the logical next challenger.

MAKEHEN is definitely the indy of indies but the guy backing it has plenty of money so it will stick around.

I think the most important thing about the Shirais is despite coming from a small mostly men's indy they appear to have been generally accepted into the joshi community. And considering they've been in pro wrestling just over a year, they came in at a decent elevation level in those other promotions.

That makes me believe that everybody can see the money potential in them. Hopefully they also all see the money potential in Shirai's vs. Kanari Sisters feud.
Title: Re: SENDAI
Post by: J.H. - Firmly Re-Dedicated to Yoneyama! on May 24, 2008, 10:38:08 PM
Another thing is, the Shirai Sisters are already so beyond their actual experience would indicate (especially Io). Just over a year in and they already seem to have a more developed presence in the ring than most of the Sendai girls (though I'm guessing the Sendai girls have had the fundamentals pounded into them). I mean the Kanaris are good but Mio and Io just semto have the tools and are already using them at a rapid and advanced level.

It seems like each set of sisters are likely just learning in a different way. With all of their travels, the SPTS are probably picking up bits and pieces of unique parts of their presentations. But I think it's a safe bet the Kinaris are on a better track to having more consistently solid (if not really good) matches.

I agree with this assessment. All of  Satomura's pupils are developing pretty much at the same rate as the original GAEA class did. So by year 4 of Sendai all of the original girls are going to be insanely good.

As for the The Shirai sisters... I imagine in 2 years that some organization will take the gamble and put their tag straps on them (I think they are a great fit for JWP actually. Geez... now I want to see UematsuRan as the veteran team going o war with the Shirais... Hell I think I could even get excited to see the Shirais feud with WANTED!)

Sendai has released cards for their set of three shows at the end of the month.  The Friday night show features the conclusion of the youth tournament and features all 16 young ladies on the card.  Most of them are going back to Tokyo (some of them probably have other bookings for the weekend), but Misaki Ohata, Hanako Kobayashi, and the Shirai sisters are sticking around for the weekend house shows and Aja Kong is coming up to provide a "big name" to the card.  Still no Meiko  *tantrum.  I hope this means that Meiko will be able to return for the anniversary show, which will be sometime in July.

We get lots of sisters-on-sisters violence, as Kanaris vs Shirais are booked for all 3 nights.  Hiren and Arisa are included in the fun on the first night.

Hmmm... Okuda vs Kong again. What is the likely hood of Okuda taking the fall. I doubt it is that hard pressed, given that it is in the middle of nowhere, and probably won't effect Kong at all, while helping Okuda out.

Wouldn't a victory over Aja right now be a bit big for Okuda? Still those Aja matches will be interesting in general, especially for the one who actually wins the tournament. I'm still hoping its Mizunami vs. Okuda for the finals.

I hope this means that Meiko will be able to return for the anniversary show, which will be sometime in July.
If I remember correctly she basically had the same injury Kensuke had in the latter half of 06. If so she should be healed already. At this point my guess is that she is waiting for the anniversary show to return since her return would be a big deal for them in general, might as well use it for a big show.

Yeah, plus the Saturday/Sunday shows in this mini-tour of Miyagi prefecture surely aren't going to make TV/DVD, so it would be stupid to have Okuda or Miz get the career-defining huge win over Aja here.  It would be like Aya Yuki pinning Kyoko Inoue at one of those shows somewhere in bumfuck Hokkaido.  Remember, Meiko got her big wins over Aja at major shows (4/4/99 and 12/15/01) at Yokohama Bunka Gym and Kawasaki City Gym.  No one in joshi is running venues that size these days, but the career-making breakthroughs for today's girls need to be in Korakuen Hall or Sendai Sun Plaza.

The Tokyo Dome is the biggest venue for wrestling in Japan (unless one would count Tokyo National Stadium, which is a lot bigger). There has only been one Joshi Dome show in pro-wrestling history: All Japan Women's in 1994 (click here (http://www.purolove.com/joshi/joshimisc.php) and scroll down to the very end of the site for results).

The Tokyo Dome used to be a big draw for New Japan but over the last few years they used to many times for questionable cards (as far as drawing potential). Really, only New Japan uses the Dome these days and have scaled back from 3 Dome shows a year to just 1. NOAH used the Dome twice but they had big matches to back up the use (Kobashi/Akiyama one year and then Kobashi/Sasaki the next). Since then Noah hasn't had BIG matches to justify the Dome.

No wome's group, even on a united card, could draw well atthe Doem right now. New Japan has trouble getting 30k in there these days.

Also because back then AJW had tons of cash and promotion to run the Dome. Remember it was AJW paying everyone for Queendom/Big Egg. They could've just as easily run the Nippon Budokan and had a guaranteed sellout but drew a better than average crowd to the Dome. I don't know what the gate was though... but I'd like to think that they showed a profit.

Do you think that, even if every Joshi promotion in Japan go together to ru nthe Dome that they could do the same today? Heck... I don't even think they'd get the Budokan half-full.

James
Title: Re: SENDAI
Post by: Sternness on June 06, 2008, 08:51:14 AM
They must have made serious money off of the Dome show. The gate for the show was $4,000,000 according to prowrestlinghistory.com and the four-tape master set cost a whopping $316 (!!!) or $100 for each individual tape when it was first released in December, 1994. Dave Meltzer said they would surely set an all-time time record for videotape money sales. That's just insane and it's just the video tape set. They had all sorts of merchandise for the show, programs, t-shirts and so on.

No Joshi show will ever draw that kind of attendance and money ever again, even if they all worked together. The only way a modern day Joshi show will draw a biggish gate (let's say a 3,000 paid, which would be extremely big for today's standards) is by featuring all the big names of the 90's and 00's, have them work together for a while and build the show up over a period of time. They'd have to put up some dream matches with wrestlers like Hyuga, Satomura, Kyoko Inoue, Tamura, Aja Kong, Amazing Kong (if TNA would let her do some shows), Ozaki, Nanae Takahashi, Yoshida, Kandori, Hamada, Toyota, etc. Getting Akira Hokuto to do a one-night return match, while almost impossible, could be a decent draw as well. None of the younger wrestlers draw flies (and they probably will never reach the previous generations drawing ability and popularity) so they wouldn't be able do any old vs. young matches, they would need to do old stars vs. old stars matchups to garner "main streamish" attention which isn't really the route the Joshi business needs to take these days. Most of the big names in Joshi are either (way) past their prime or just aren't going to be any bigger than they are now or were a few/several years ago (Hyuga, Tamura, Satomura, Hamada), so the window to do a show or series of shows like this is closing with every passing year.

Putting on a series of new age Dreamslam shows could potentially do wonders for the Joshi business and draw several good gates at Korakuen, Kawasaki City Gymnasium and maybe they would be able to do a decent gate to finish it off at Sumo Hall, but there is no way they'd be able to do a legit 5,000 or 6,000 gate these days and with all the egos involved, one would have to think there is no way all those wrestlers and companies would work together, do clean jobs and cut all the BS to put on a quality show like AJW did in the past with those interpromotional events. JWP and NEO put on successful shows at Korakuen on a regular basis but no one is really able to draw anything beyond 1,200. NEO has a show scheduled for Kawasaki City Gymnasium in October where they might be able milk something out of Kyoko’s return run but even the last one in that venue in 2007 (that did have a bit of a Dreamslam feel to it in terms of talent from different organizations) didn't do all that great.

IMHO, what matches do you use to run Budokan?  I'm not convinced an old timers fest would do it anymore.  Even if you could get everyone together for it to do the build up there are simply no new matches.  With all the promotions already working together and sharing from the same pool of workers, almost any match anyone wants to see can be seen at Korakuen at some point.  Satomura and Hyuga seems like the biggest new joshi match. 
Title: Re: SENDAI
Post by: J.H. - Firmly Re-Dedicated to Yoneyama! on June 06, 2008, 09:47:43 AM
An old timers night isn't the answer.

Now if all the groups got together and decided to push say 3 girls really hard and make them huge then you might have something. I mean what if JWP, SENDAI and NEO got otgether and created a media blitz around 1-3 individuals? Then you start using that publicity to set-up a huge match.


I dunno... when most Joshi groups can't sell-out Korakuen consistently then that speaks volumes to me.

Title: Re: SENDAI
Post by: Sternness on June 06, 2008, 11:32:02 AM
Pushing new talent seems fine in theory but it very difficult to do since only the same few hundreds of fans go to the shows. There aren't any new fans coming in or if there are they are small in number. Coupled with the almost non existent "main stream" coverage - or coverage of any kind for that matter - makes it extremely difficult to get anybody over big time. I understand what you're saying, creating a media buzz around some youngsters to gain interest but how would that work? There is probably only one magazine left (Lady's Gong) that covers Joshi and I don't even think that Gong publishes on a regular basis. From the looks of their livedoor page, there have only been 2 issues to date (and I believe a 0th issue) in more than a year so while the magazine is a nice idea and all, it's not really a big deal or anything. TV is almost exclusively on Samurai! TV these days which has a decent amount of broadcasts but that's about it. If they want to mega-push someone, they need to find a way to get them into some regular tv shows, some "main streamish" stuff. The days of Joshi stars doing big time chart music is over of course, but they need to find something to garner interest, like variety show stuff or something.

Most organizations built up new wrestlers, which is great but it's really unrealistic to expect any of the newcomers to become well known (main stream) stars that are able to win over lots of new fans like the stars of the past. Pushing some youngsters real hard isn't a bad idea (if they are able to back it up in the ring and have a bit of a character unlike let's say Haruka Matsuo who despite being a sweetheart just comes of real bland) but how will they gain new fans from doing that?

All of today's draws have been wrestling for 10-20 years, nobody else is really moving up the ladder in terms of becoming serious main event type wrestlers. At least the older wrestlers are known to a broader fanbase, those fans that have watched Joshi or wrestling in general during the 90's. People know their names. I'm not saying they should put up a LLPW-type granny card, but if anyone wants to promote an interpromotional supershow they need to rely on the likes of Hyuga, Satomura, Tamura, Takahashi, Hamada, the Kongs, Kyoko Inoue and Yoshida as headliners (I wouldn't consider them old timers, they are still the current main eventers) even if some of the match ups have been done in the past and oldies like Ozaki, Kansai, Kandori etc. in the lower mid card range. Showcase the youngsters of course and use big shows like that to push them, but if they want to draw a serious gate they have to book those wrestlers I mentioned. That's just the way it is.

Joshi is on an upswing these days which is great but what I'm saying is that a Dreamslam type of card with all of the big names could get a few fans back into the mix that may have not been around lately and produce Joshi's first legitimate 2,000~3,000+ attendance in a long, long time, which would be a boost to the industry.

BTW: I wonder if TNA would be willing to do a program with the japanese organizations. Their female division is pretty strong and they might be interested in further pushing it by bringing in some quality talents for some television tapings and PPV's and in return, bring some talent like Kong, Gail Kim etc. over to Japan for a series of matches.

All Japan Womens Pro Wrestling Big Egg Wrestling Universe (Tokyo Dome att.42,500 est.$4million gate)

I know it'd be awhile before they could do another Tokyo dome show, but I meant during the time of the dreamslams, dreamrushes, and queendoms, why they couldn't do more tokyo dome shows. Even during the 80's, I'm sure they could have packed a tokyo dome show with loads of school girls.

I do agree with the variety show, or possibly get one of your Idols like Fuuka, Arisa, or Haruka and see if they can sing. If they can, pimp them out to some musical execs(I don't mean that literally, just that you have them meet and greet with a bunch of music execs until one likes their voice and agrees to a contract) and we could rebuild it.

The thing is you need that magical babyface and that magical evil heel to make the whole thing work. Getting the girls on TV is great but with no Dump for Chigusa to play up against what is he point?

If only there a truly malicious heel out there... I can see something like that really playing wel in JWP, especially with a fired up younger worker like Yoneyama to play babyface to. If SENDAI had themselves a bigger girl to groom for the role of heel then you've got someone for Okuda to feud with in her own promotion...

I think she's either a natural heel, or without a character she just didn't have enough charisma. All the girls are pretty much still just wearing their rookie gear, and don't really have any storylines or feuds outside of Okuda, and now Hiren. The only person I really saw break though that was Chisako, but mainly because of the Napolean complex.

I think when it comes to booking the SENDAI girls Meiko wants to make sure they are thoroughly trained in the basics before letting them develop any kind of character within the promotion. It could be she wants SENDAI to be closer to King' Road AJPW than GAEA (besides we already have the continuation of GAEA with OZ academy). 

Of course she could also be taking the AJW rule of 18 months to 2 years of active wrestling before being allowed to develop a character and advanced moveset.

1. Exhibition: Ryo Mizunami defeated DASH Chisako (9:00) with a Second Rope Guillotine Drop.
2. Exhibition: Tyrannosaurus Okuda defeated Sendai Sachiko (8:59) with a German Suplex Hold.

This was a small local festival and SENDAI appeared to do some stuff with kids and they had a couple of exhibition matches.  Meiko's still in Thailand and Hiren was in Tokyo at the OZ Academy show, but the rest were there.

Nobu and his kids were there. Some photos of the event at http://blog.bodymaker.jp/user/nobu/nobu/18188.html (http://blog.bodymaker.jp/user/nobu/nobu/18188.html)  Apparently one of the other kids there got scared and was crying when they rang the bell and started wrestling.  *tantrum

am i the only one who doesn't get why mizunami is getting this good of a career push?

Why don't you like the Miz?  She's probably the most well-rounded of the Sendai Girls in the ring right now, as she's got a decent power game and good mat skills.  She's definitely more versatile than Okuda right now.  I like Okuda, but she's pretty much dropkick-JUMPINGNI-JUMPINGNI-German and not much else right now.  Miz is also starting to show more fire/personality in the ring, particularly in how she got so pissed off with Arisa & Kana's bitchy nonsense in the recent tag match.  I'm not a big fan of her look, but YMMV on that.

I see Miz growing into sort of the "secondary ace" role down the road, sort of like a Genki or a Kuragaki.  Okuda will probably always be the most pushed one, as she's got a better look and she's well-suited for the wholesome honorable uber babyface role.

The Kanari girls are fun, but they are too damn small.  Sachiko will probably end up having Kaori Yoneyama's career and DASH will take lots of bumps while never being scared of people twice her size that she should be scared of.  Any push they will get will be as a tag team.

Hiren, I don't know about.  She's got such a jobber aura and has been so bland in Sendai.  I haven't seen any of her OZ matches yet, so I don't know if she's got potential as a heel or not.

In addition to the three shows at the end of June (including the end of the tournament), Sendai has announced a show on July 27th at Zepp Sendai (their usual venue in Sendai).  This is a bit strange to me because July is when the anniversary show is, and this show was not announced as the anniversary show and is not at Sendai Sun Plaza (a bigger arena where the debut show and 1st anniversary where held).

I don't know if this means the July Zepp Sendai show is in addition to the anniversary show (and details of that will be announced later) or if the anniversary show is in Zepp this year.  If so, this would indicate they don't think they have a prayer of getting a big crowd.  It could also mean that Meiko's still not ready to return and they need Satomura to run Sun Plaza.

You may or may not have heard, but there was an earthquake in the Sendai area (actually with an epicenter somewhat north, around the border of Miyagi & Iwate prefectures) several days ago.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2008_Iwate_earthquake (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2008_Iwate_earthquake)

As you might imagine, this was a topic in some of their blogs.  It seems that Okuda was the most scared.  There was no damage at the Sendai dojo.  DASH Chisako posted a picture of a pan that fell in their kitchen.

The earthquake was given as the reason for the cancellation of the June 28th show at Wakayanagi Public Hall in Kurihara (located in the NW portion of Miyagi prefecture where the quake was the strongest).  The shows on the 27th (at Zepp Sendai) and the 29th (at Shikama Townsman Gymnasium) are still on.

Zepp Sendai


1. Mika Mizunuma, Misaki Ohata, & Pinkie Mayuka defeated Kana, Hanako Kobayashi, & Minori Makiba (12:20) when Mizunuma used the 爆☆喰 (???) on Makiba.
2. Jaja Uma Tournament Semifinal: Ryo Mizunami defeated Ayako Sato (11:46) with a Diving Guillotine Drop.
3. Jaja Uma Tournament Semifinal: Hiroyo Matsumoto defeated Tyrannosaurus Okuda (14:42) with a Backdrop.
4. DASH Chisako, Sendai Sachiko, & Hiren defeated Arisa Nakajima, Mio Shirai, & Io Shirai (16:25) when Sachiko used a German Suplex Hold on Mio.
5. Jaja Uma Tournament Final: Hiroyo Matsumoto defeated Ryo Mizunami (13:53) with a Backdrop.

I thought one of the Sendai Girls would win the tournament.  Alas, they always finish 2nd in tournaments.  The show for tomorrow was cancelled because it was in the northernmost part of Miyagi prefecture that was affected by the recent earthquake, but they do have a house show on Sunday.  Also, details of the July show at Zepp Sendai were announced.  OZ Academy is coming again and we get the pre-debut of one of the trainees, Sonoko's first appearance in Sendai Girls, no Meiko  *tantrum, and Hiren in the main event!  Yukari Ishino is the trainee from Osaka, who just turned 16.  She's 158cm, 60 kg and has a judo background.  No word yet on Meiko's return, if/when they will have a SunPlaza show, and if the other trainee will be debuting soon.

Okuda collapsed in the dresssing room after her match and was rushed to the hospital.  According to the Sendai homepage, she was diagnosed with a concussion.  They took down the card for the Sunday show (6/29) at Shikama and said the card would be announced the day of the show. Presumably Okuda won't be wrestling on Sunday and could be out longer.  I'll update if I hear more on her condition.

Here's the results from the Sendai house show today.  Sachiko worked twice (and won TWICE) since Okuda did not appear.  Okuda was at the show and spoke to the crowd.  She's wearing a neck brace  *gloom  No idea if this means she is out for a while or not.  Meiko also appeared and said that her return will be "soon".  Hiren's still a loser  *bwah  Aja and Ryo brawled in the crowd for a while before the inevitable Aja victory.  I guess Sachiko likes some WWE, as she has added the "Stone Cold Stunner" to her moveset-she already had the RVD "Rolling Thunder".  I don't believe any beer was involved in the post-match celebration.

Well, Sendai has a show coming up on July 27th and then another one on August 24th.  The July show is against OZ Academy; further details about the August show have not been released.  Both are at Zepp Sendai and I guess they aren't doing an anniversary show at Sendai SunPlaza this year.  Meiko's still not back and I guess they don't think they can get a big enough crowd for that venue without her.  I've seen a vague "soon" as Satomura's return.

Okuda's concussion/neck and/or shoulder injury at the June show after taking a bad bump off of Hiroyo Matsumoto's backdrop doesn't appear to be keeping her out of action, as she's on the Daily Sports card for 7/21 (Monday) and the Sendai show.  I think ELPS's "just a broken neck"  *wtf is a faulty translation.  I've ran Okuda's blog through a few translators and it seems she spent a week recuperating at home and has had some neck/shoulder pain.  I hope she isn't going to work through an injury that she shouldn't.

The card for next weekend (including a "pre-debut" by one of the new trainees):

Well, Okuda's injury is keeping her out of action.  She missed the Daily Sports show in Osaka last weekend (Ryo Mizunami went instead) and the Sendai Girls homepage has announced that her injury is a "cervical vertebrae injury" and she's out for the show on 7/27.  This is better than having her work if she's not 100%, but hopefully this isn't a severe injury that will keep her out for months. 

They haven't announced yet how the card will change to accomodate this absence.

SENDAI GIRLS July 27, 2008
Zepp Sendai


1. Exhibition: Ryo Mizunami vs Yukari Ishino (5:00) went to a time-limit draw.
2. Sonoko Kato defeated Ryo Mizunami (13:03) with a Diving Guillotine Drop.
3. Carlos Amano defeated Ryo Mizunami (6:41) with a Triangle Choke.
4. Mayumi Ozaki & KAORU defeated DASH Chisako & Sendai Sachiko (20:55) when KAORU used a Valkyrie Splash on Sachiko.
5. Chikayo Nagashima defeated Hiren (10:54) with an Avalanche-Style Frankensteiner.
6. Carlos Amano, Chikayo Nagashima, & Sonoko Kato defeated Mayumi Ozaki, KAORU, & Hiren (14:19) when Nagashima defeated Hiren with a Fisherman's Buster.

Results from http://ameblo.jp/blogresuner/entry-10120800345.html (http://ameblo.jp/blogresuner/entry-10120800345.html) and http://blog.livedoor.jp/oznekosennin/archives/64981624.html  (http://blog.livedoor.jp/oznekosennin/archives/64981624.html) Photos at http://blog.bodymaker.jp/user/nobu/nobu/20183.html (http://blog.bodymaker.jp/user/nobu/nobu/20183.html).

Jinsei Shinzaki came out and announced Okuda couldn't wrestle today and said Miz would face the trainee in the exhibition match and that Carlos Amano would win by forfeit.  Miz said someone winning by forfeit was unacceptable and said she'd wrestle Amano instead, so she worked 3 straight matches.  D-FIX clobbered the Sendai sisters with the usual assortment of weapons.  I guess Hiren has made her true allegiance known to the Sendai crowd in the bonus match, where she teamed up with the Ozaki Army against Amano's crew.

The only thing announced thus far about the next Sendai show on 8/24 is that Yukari Ishino will make her official debut.

Post by: Sabrina the Teenage Cracker on July 27, 2008, 04:48:03 PM
I'm hoping, even though Hiren didn't actually fight any of the Sendai Girls, that teaming up with Ozaki in Sendai is her heel turn. Maybe even The Kanari sisters are angry that she'd team with someone who just used a bunch of cheating methods to win against them or somethng.

Another cool thing is the time on the Kanaris vs D-fix match. Maybe they got more offense in than one would think. Like when Chisako took on Manami for almost 30 minutes.

I like Mizunami wrestling three matches straight and giving that little speech. It stands her out from the rest of the crew which I think Sendai should have done with their tournament earlier. Dislike Ozaki's crew not winning the main. And the lack of news or anything happening with Hiren teaming with Ozaki here is a bit disappointing.

More bad news to report.  Okuda either had or will have endoscopic surgery on her shoulder-so it seems that the botched Backdrop caused several problems.  I'm not sure how long she'll be out.  Also, still no Meiko and I'm really wondering if there's something seriously wrong with her eye that she's not telling to the public.

As I mentioned in the OZ thread, Dynamite Kansai has also been pulled from this card.  I'm not sure if this is some sort of OZ Academy angle or if Kansai is taking time off for some reason.

Here is the card.

I thought from reading OKuda's blog that it sounded like she was having neck pain that was hard to place. I wonder if it is down to some kind of nerve injury in her shoulder, hence the surgery.  That really sucks.  I really, really hope she can continue safely.

On the Meiko side I kind of think maybe she is still using the injury to allow her more time to take care of the other injuries she had built up.  Part of me hopes that she is just waiting for a meaningful time to come back (i.e when Hyuga comes back).  I also would have thought they have looked at attendance and wont rush her back unless that starts meaningfully dropping.

I think when it comes to booking the SENDAI girls Meiko wants to make sure they are thoroughly trained in the basics before letting them develop any kind of character within the promotion. It could be she wants SENDAI to be closer to King' Road AJPW than GAEA (besides we already have the continuation of GAEA with OZ academy). 

Of course she could also be taking the AJW rule of 18 months to 2 years of active wrestling before being allowed to develop a character and advanced moveset.

I remember when SENDAI was still in the works whoever spoke for the organization referenced the Zenjo style of wrestlers earning their stripes.

Well even before the injury Jinsei was always there. I think Meiko probably listens very closely to his advice on how to train and book the girls and not just because its him and Sasuke providing the money to back them. I'm also happy that they've kept SENDAI as separate from Michinoku Pro as possible (for now).

Tyrannosaurus Okuda had her surgery on her rotator cuff and is starting to rehab.  She finally posted to her blog after a few weeks away (which is unusual for her).  She seems pretty bummed and sad about her injury-I don't think she's ever been hurt or sick or anything before.

From her blog on the Sendai HP:

(http://www.sendaigirls.jp/cgi-bin/html/okuda/dataokuda/1219107231.jpeg)

Who cares about Gail Kim?  It has been announced on the Sendai HP that MEIKO FREAKING SATOMURA is finally cleared to wrestle again and will make her return at the Sendai show on October 26 (Sendai has a show this weekend but nothing planned for September).
 
 *whee *whee *whee *whee *whee *whee

Satomura is going to make another trip to Thailand in September for more Muay Thai training so she can kick the shit out of people with new stuff when she returns.  The opponent hasn't been announced yet.  Meiko also claimed to have no feeling of revenge regarding Azumi Hyuga.  Bahh, I hope once Meiko is back in form and Hyuga recovers from the knee surgery that they finally throw down a MOTY.

But whatever, I just want them to feud for the titles, for serious.

Some heal at  a slower rate than others. Also it might've been intentional soshe could let the SENDAI girls stand on their own without her i nthe spotlight.

And just because she said there is no ill will doesn't mean that there isn't the potential for a match between her and Hyuga and the Kne Of Death not being played up in the match.

Of course eiko might've been working all of us the whole time and pulled a Misawa and might've healed up waaaay back in March. Just a thought...

Who said they aren't booking the feud?  I'm sure once both Meiko and Azumi are healthy and back in action (and Okuda & Arisa too, for that matter), that the Sendai vs JWP feud will resume (unless both organizations are totally stupid).  Just a wild guess, but I could see Nakajima mouthing off about how Meiko is scared of Hyuga and using that to feed the flames.

Well any type of grudge match would probably happen in JWP. I still would like to think Meiko will challenge Haruyama at CLIMAX 2008. If JWP goes to SENDAI it would be pretty much another series of matches for most of the SENDAI girls to get experience (save for another Arisa/Okuda encounter, probably in tag).

I hope so too. Have Hyuga come in shitting on Meiko or whatever. Or they should have done the Eden Black/Jetta feud where Jetta wanted Eden to admit she retired her....very similar to the shawn michaels/Jericho feud....tough Black/Jetta came first.....anyway so that could work. But whatever, I just want them to feud for the titles, for serious.

Am I the only one who also really would love to see a singles match between Meiko and Arisa?....I've loved their interactions in previous tag matches.

I very much want to see Meiko kick Arisa's snobby little ass  *whee *whee *whee

Bleh, I love Arisa walking straight up to Meiko and stiffing her with forearms.

Zepp Sendai
600 Fans


1. Ishino Debut Match: Chikayo Nagashima defeated Yukari Ishino (10:38) with a Missile Kick.
2. Sonoko Kato defeated Sendai Sachiko (13:07) with a Dragon Suplex Hold.
3. Carlos Amano defeated DASH Chisako (13:22) with an Avalanche Style Brainbuster.
4. "Manami" Toyota defeated Ryo Mizunami (18:49) with a Japanese Ocean Queen Bee Bomb.
5. Aja Kong defeated Hiren (2:28) with a Vertical Brainbuster.

I've read a couple of blogger reports and everyone seemed to be very impressed with the rookie, Ishino.  It sounds like she's very athletic and gets very good height on dropkicks and seemed quite advanced for someone in their first match.

It was Chisako's 20th birthday, which is a big deal in Japan.  Not a big enough deal for her not to do her usual job.

I have hopes that Toyota and the Miz had a good match-they got almost 20 minutes. 

Hiren got squashed.  I guess she's still a loser.  She better start cheating or bringing help with her.  That's a pretty embarassing main event.

Meiko named her opponent for her return match.  She likes to start off with an easy match.  It's Aja Kong!  Aja spoke to the crowd and told them to all make sure to buy tickets for Meiko's "retirement" match.

Wow, Yukari Ishino's match lasted pretty damn long for a debut against a veteran.

Miz/Toyota should be fun.

I seriously hope this is like the last straw, so that Hiren decides to starts making full use of the five count. Because I mean okuda's shortest match against Kong was still about 8 minutes.

Aja Kong's promos are still as witty as ever.

From the photos, it appears that Hiren was stupid enough to attack Aja on the runway before the match. It appears Aja was not amused. Somebody needs to tell that girl that you can only pull that kind of shit when you have back-up from D-FIX in the house.

I've got a fantasy booking idea involving Hiren.  The others in D-Fix/Ozaki Army Corps have their signature weapon (Ozaki's chain, KAORU's board, Takako's stun gun) and I think Hiren needs a weapon as well.  Hiren's basically a wuss and a coward, so I think her weapon should be "pepper spray".  The first time she uses it should be against Meiko; I wouldn't do it in the Meiko-Aja match since Hiren has no reason to help Aja and that match shouldn't have that kind of interference, but maybe in the next match, Hiren could mace Meiko in her bad eye with the pepper spray and get big heat and Meiko could flip out and "kick" her out of Sendai Girls and take away her Sendai uniform.  Hiren needs to go shopping with Mika Nishio in Tokyo for some trashier clothes.

SENDAI news has been a bit quiet since they had no September show.  The show later this month (10/26) features Meiko's return against Aja Kong.  The other matches haven't been announced yet.

Meiko still shows up wearing the eye patch.  I'm not sure if she's still having problems or if she's kayfabing it a bit at this point.  She is in Thailand this week getting some muay-thai training.

I believe Tyrannosaurus Okuda is at her mom's house and not the Sendai dojo while she is rehabbing her shoulder.  I'm not 100% sure, but her recent blog postings lead me to this conclusion.  I suppose she'll return to the dojo when she's cleared to work in the ring.  I doubt at this point she'll be back for this month's show.

Ryo Mizunami is challenging Arisa Nakajima for the JWP Junior/POP belts this weekend at a JWP show.  I don't think she's gonna win.  Also, Hiren is against Pinkie Mayuka and I do think Hiren will finally go over in a singles match.  I hope the SENDAI/JWP feud gets going again  *approve

Hiren's been working a lot with the OZ Academy, as she's involved in the storyline as the junior member of the Ozaki Army Corps.  I wish the Kanari sisters were getting some work as a tag team outside of SENDAI.

Hiren posted this picture on her blog, where she's hanging out with questionable company.

We now have a card for the Meiko return match, along with dates for future shows.

SENDAI GIRLS October 26, 2008
Zepp Sendai


1. 5 Vs. 5 Elimination Match: Ryo Mizunami, Hiren, DASH Chisako, Sendai Sachiko, & Yukari Ishino vs Misaki Ohata, Mio Shirai, Io Shirai, Mikado, & Minori Makiba
2. Meiko Satomura vs Aja Kong

So only two matches, but the elimination match should be long and has lots of interesting pairings.  We'll have some sisters-on-sisters violence, see if Miz can through Megaton Mikado around, and another return by hometown girl Misaki Ohata.  I wonder if Hiren will put her Sendai uniform back on and act good, or if she's going to mess things up by being the bad see?  Oh, and Hiren will team with Apple Miyuki on MAKEHEN's 10/30 show against the Shirais, so they will probably get involved here as well.

I think the Sendai Girls win this match (this is why they are bringing in the kids rather than the OZ Academy to job to again).  Also, I think Aja will win, since Meiko won their last singles match and I think Meiko is traditional enough to do the obligatory "first match back from long absence" job.

We also will have a mini-show on November 2nd at the local auto racetrack, with Aja coming back.  They did a similar little 3 match show last year, with Jaguar Yokota as the "name" outsider.  The next regular show will be November 16th, with a different venue.  They are going to use Sendai Harbor International Business Center "Accelerator", which the girls haven't run before but Michinoku Pro uses quite a bit.  I think it's pretty similar in capacity to Zepp Sendai.

I like the look of the elimination match, although its a small shame that Kana or Arisa isnt in there to spice it up a little bit.  In fact I think that one will be a bit more exciting than Meiko's return match, mostly because of the strong possibility that she's probably due a total ass whuppin from Aja.  I have to agree with Josh on the high probability of the Meiko job in that one. Still, get that over with and move onto the Hyuga clash.  Reignite that JWP feud!

I reckon this is the perfect time to turn Hiren heel in the Sendai Girls universe. She and Aja Kong have some recent history, maybe she can try and interfere in Meiko's match to cause Aja to lose, it backfires and Meiko loses because of it. Afterwards she chews Hiren out who then beats Meiko up.

And then we can have a nice Sendai Girls vs D-FIX war.

1g. Ryo Mizunami defeated Mio Shirai (2:35) with a Shoulder Lock.
1h. Mikado defeated Ryo Mizunami (12:09) with a Diving Body Press.
1i. Hiren defeated Mikado (6:01) with a Jackknife Hold.
2. Satomura Return Match: Aja Kong defeated Meiko Satomura (18:35) with an Uraken.

Results as I expected.  The first match wasn't a tag match, but a series of singles matches where the loser would be replaced by another member of her team.  It went the maximum 9 falls, with Hiren getting the final fall to clinch victory for the Sendai Girls!  I'm not sure yet if she was in Sendai garb or her black OZ outfit and whether she was playing face or heel.

Meiko's pretty old-school, so she did the obligatory job after coming back from a long absence.  Aja will be back in Sendai for the mini-show on 11/2 at the SUGO Racetrack (there's a big autorace that day).  November 16th will see Senjo vs JWP.  I don't know the match-ups yet.

I really would like to see that 5 by 5 match.  I can see why its not an elimination tag, thats probably a bit too much for the experience of that lot.  Thats too many people to keep track of interference organisation imo.  Oh and J.H, I know some reckon Yoneyama is getting a raw deal in JWP booking, but no sendai girl will go over here unless she's in a tag with somebody like Pinkie and even then she wont take the fall.  Or she's facing Meiko or Meiko-led team of course. :)

Sendai will resume battle with JWP on November 16th.  They are using a different venue for some reason.  I think it's similar in capacity to Zepp Sendai and Michinoku Pro uses "Accelerator" quite a bit.

They are obviously not planning on Okuda being back yet.  DASH gets to take an ass-whooping from another big veteran.  Can Pinkie get revenge for the loss at the JWP show, or will Hiren's winning streak continue? Can Meiko get revenge on Hyuga & Nakajima?  I think Meiko pins Arisa, which was probably the intended ending of the match with the injury last year.

I was thinking the intended ending may have been for Satomura to go over Hyuga, which is why they would have made that title match less than a week after the match, when they weren't sure of the seriousness of Satomura's injury.

So this is Yoneyama and Sachiko's third match now?....I'm really scared of Sachiko going over. *gloom

Hiren/Mayuka sounds like some fun.

Looks like they're putting their judo girl against Bolshoi, which should really show a lot of her potential.

Any idea if this might make tv, or at least if they'll sell it from their site?

I have a bad feeling this show won't make TV, so we probably won't see it  *gloom

I did see on purolove that the show from this week, with the 5-on-5 elimination match, will be on Samurai, so we'll get to see it in a few months.  Samurai doesn't clip matches as much as Puroresu King on GAORA did, but it looks like Sendai's only going to get TV a few times a year, like JWP.  The only DVDs Sendai has ever sold on their website were the debut show and a compilation of the WAR tournament from 2007.  I'd love for JWP and Sendai house shows to become available like NEO.

Obviously Ishino will job to Bolshoi and it will probably have some mat-work.  I think Hiren will beat Pinkie again.  DASH will taste the Keene Hammer.  Meiko and Jinsei Shinzaki (who I believe are the ones who book Sendai) are too traditional to put Sachiko over Yoneyama.  I think Meiko pins Nakajima in the main.  At some point we'll have a Meiko-Hyuga singles match, but they should build to it and have it at a major show.

Yeah, this was Hiren's first victory in Sendai and her 2nd singles victory overall, as she beat Pinkie Mayuka at a JWP show recently.  She also made Hiroyo Matsumoto submit to the ankle lock in a tag match at an OZ show, but Hiroyo beat her handily in a subsequent singles match (the one lucky posted to Youtube).

watching hiren vs hiroyo at lucky's channel got me almost bothered. hiren winning via POLICE's interference would make her look weak and it's not a good idea, IMO. she should be booked as a good contender worth paying attention to that can win her battles credibly and not because some son of a gun interfered in the match in her behalf

Hmm, did Meiko work over the arm of Aja in their match? It seems like this was a lot more competitive than Hiren's last match against Aja, and it looks like she was working over the arm some.


I'm wondering if Meiko's gonna sit a few shows out every once in awhile to let the Sendai girls get full spotlight.

I actually have a pair of results from Sendai.  On Saturday, Sendai Girls did a free show for local kids.  The afternoon included a motivational talk from Jinsei Shinzaki, a demonstration of wrestling techiques by the Sendai Girls, "Senjo boot camp" where the kids got to work out with the Sendai Girls, and finally a tag match.  They did a similar event several months ago.  If you want to see the poster, go to (Adobe Acrobat document) http://www.sendai-jc.or.jp/pdf/reikai-12.pdf (http://www.sendai-jc.or.jp/pdf/reikai-12.pdf)   Notice that one must get their parents to pay for a ticket to see Meiko wrestle.

Sendai Tatsuto Kitada Elementary School Gymnasium


1. DASH Chisako & Sendai Sachiko defeated Ryo Mizunami & Hiren (18:11) when Sachiko used a
German Suplex Hold on Hiren.

The regular show was today, at a different venue, as Senjo is now using the "Accelerator" building that M-Pro often uses rather than Zepp Sendai.  I don't have the attendance figure yet or any photos, but I've got results.  Hiren scores a second successive singles victory over Pinkie, and Meiko scores a win over Nakajima.  It sounds like Arisa was in the ring a lot longer than Hyuga, and Meiko asked for a singles match with Azumi afterwards.  They shook hands and I suspect we'll see this sometime in early 2009.

SENDAI GIRLS November 16, 2008

1. Command Bolshoi defeated Yukari Ishino (7:49) with a Back Arm Throw.
2. Hiren defeated Pinkie Mayuka (11:30) with the Ankle Lock.
3. Kaori Yoneyama defeated Sendai Sachiko (9:48) with a Jumping Yazuka Kick.
4. Kayoko Haruyama defeated DASH Chisako (11:50) with a Diving Guillotine Drop.
5. Meiko Satomura & Ryo Mizunami defeated Azumi Hyuga & Arisa Nakajima (21:47) when Satomura used a Death Valley Bomb on Nakajima.

The final Sendai show of 2008 is on 12/21 at the Accelerator and it will be a one day tag tournament, in honor of Devil Masami, who will make her final Sendai appearance that day.  Six teams have been announced, with no brackets or match-ups yet.  We will also have the Sendai debut of Makoto.  I never thought I would type that.

1. Meiko Satomura & Yukari Ishino
2. DASH Chisako & Sendai Sachiko
3. Hiren & KAORU
4. Devil Masami & Ryo Mizunami
5. Ayako Sato & Hanako Kobayashi

Title: Re: SENDAI
Post by: Fanboy on November 16, 2008, 11:15:43 AM
Minori Makiba is the chubby judo girl from Ice Ribbon (I think she just turned 16).  She's worked several Sendai shows this year, so Jinsei & Meiko must see something in her that they like.  She was in the Jaja Uma tournament this year, but jobbed in the first round to Miz.  She also beat rookie Yukari Ishino in the 1st match of the 5 on 5 elimination last month before losing to DASH in 2 minutes.

I'm going to predict the Kanari sisters in the final against Devil & Ryo.  I think your final will actually be a semifinal, with the sisters against Sato & Kobayashi or maybe Meiko & Yukari in the other semifinal.  The Ice Ribbon girls are clearly there to job in the 1st round.  If Makoto has to face either Meiko or especially Devil, she'll probably die of fear.  *haha

I'm betting KAORU/Hiren vs Satomura/Ishino happens at some point, to where Hiren starts heeling it up uberly against Satomura.....or at least I'm wishifully hoping that happens.

Arisa doing most of the work makes me happy, and really makes me hope even more this makes dvd at the very least. I wish it could have been Satomura/Hyuga for a title, but I can definitely see it making tv. We've been waiting SO LONG for that, they know if they don't make it air, they'll be assassinated 20 times.

Post by: Sabrina the Teenage Cracker on November 24, 2008, 01:00:32 AM
Since when Sendai airs, it usually airs as a double shot, so does anyone know if the 11.16.2008 show might be the one included? Like as a double shot of JWP especially considering the tag match is what leads to the Hyuga/Satomura match?

I think it's really smart that they're waiting til '09 to have the Hyuga/Satomura match. Gives them both enough time to truly smooth off all their ring rust, and deliver the best match that they can.
Title: Re: SENDAI
Post by: Fanboy on December 03, 2008, 07:17:34 AM
SENDAI isn't airing as double shots anymore-that was what GAORA liked to do when they were on Puroresu King.  Now that Sendai and Michinoku Pro are off GAORA and Sendai Girls shows are now on Samurai, you get one complete show, with much less clipping than on GAORA.  The problem is, like with JWP, it appears that we will only get about 4 shows or so per year on TV, so lots of good cards don't air and we probably won't see a lot of this stuff  *livid

Oh, and Sendai has announced their January show.  As previously announced, the December 21st show at Sendai Harbor International Business Center "Accelerator" is a one-day tag tournament honoring Devil Masami.  The teams are Meiko & Yukari Ishino, Devil & Ryo Mizunami, DASH Chisako & Sendai Sachiko, KAORU & Hiren (I hope Hiren wears her OZ gear), Ayako Sato & Hanako Kobayashi, and (lol) Minori Makiba & Makoto.  On January 25th at the same venue there will be another one-day tournament, this one singles.  I'm assuming this one will just the Sendai roster, as that has always been what they have done with the January show.  Last January, Mizunami won the one-day tournament and a OZ title shot against Amano.  I could see Meiko winning a title shot and setting up a nice future match against Amano/Ozaki/Nagashima (whomever ends up with the title).

I'm asking JLynch to use his connections so I can pay for some JWP and Sendai(mostly for that JWP vs Sendai Show.)

I could actually see Hiren winning the singles tournament(maybe D-fix will place another hit) and have Hiren win the title shot, so they can all gang up on Amano.

1 Day Tag Team Tournament
500 Fans


1. DASH Chisako & Sendai Sachiko defeated Makoto & Minori Makiba (9:59) when Chisako used a Frog Splash on Makoto.
2. Meiko Satomura & Yukari Ishino defeated Ayako Sato & Hanako Kobayashi (17:37) when Satomura used a Figure-Four Leglock on Kobayashi.
3. DASH Chisako & Sendai Sachiko defeated KAORU & Hiren (15:46) when Sachiko pinned Hiren after a Mistaken Board Attack by KAORU.
4. Devil Masami & Ryo Mizunami defeated Meiko Satomura & Yukari Ishino (11:52) when Mizunami used a Back Arm Throw on Ishino.
5. Devil Masami & Ryo Mizunami defeated DASH Chisako & Sendai Sachiko (14:24) when Devil used the Fire Valley on Sachiko.

Apparently Hiren wore her black Oz costume rather than her red Sendai uniform, for the first time in a Sendai Girls show.  It didn't work for her, as KAORU brained her with that damn board so Sachiko could roll her up.

It looks like they are building up the Cross Sisters as a team, as they got to the finals before doing the ceremonial job to Devil.  I guess the Frog Splash might be DASH's finisher, at least against Ice Ribbon girls.  Interesting to see Meiko use a Figure-Four rather than one of her usual finishers.  Too bad we'll probably never see this show   *gloom

Sendai will have another tournament next month, on 1/25.  This one will be singles and I think it will just involve the Sendai roster.  No word on when Okuda will be back.

Oh, and the Sendai Girls will go to Tokyo on 1/10 and appear in the main event of the Passion Red show.  I guess Meiko's girls and Nanae's girls are gonna fight over who loves the color red more.  The main event is Meiko, Ryo, and DASH against Nanae, Natsuki, & Kana.  I smell a Nanaracka in Chisako's near future.

Well they are sisters(possibly twins), so of course they'd work well together. They can know what even the tiniest little facial mannerisms mean, and do so much communicating without even speaking, which creates tons of high speed interactions. I wonder why they haven't had them have a match together yet.

2. First Round: Sendai Sachiko vs Yukari Ishino
3. Semifinal: Ryo Mizunami vs Chisako/Hiren
4. Semifinal: Meiko Satomura vs Sachiko/Ishino
5. Final

I don't believe there is an OZ title shot or anything important on the line.  Sendai's January show has alway been a bit of a throw-away show, as they don't bring in any outsiders and the tickets are cheaper than usual.  This year, you can bring in 3 people with one 5000 yen ticket; I think the idea is for some of the regulars to bring their friends and hope some of these people come back. 

They specifically mentioned that all matches except the final have a 20 minute time limit and that the lighter wrestler advances in case of a tie. They had this tiebreaker before, if you remember the match where Toyota played with Chisako for almost 30 minutes before beating her with less than a minute left. Maybe it will actually come into play this time?

I'm gonna predict a Meiko-Hiren final with the obvious winner.

Would love to see a Hiren/Meiko final but I will be surprised if she goes over the Miz though I suppose as the lighter girl that might see her through from a draw. But then again I can't see that for the 20 minute time limit. 

I have the feeling that nobody will go 'heel' in Sendai until a couple of them are ready to do so, so I can't see Hiren doing that just yet.  Still would be fun if I was wrong of course.   
Title: Re: SENDAI

I wouldn't mind if Hiren was put over. She has really channeled Ozaki's aura and benefited wrestling-wise. I'm not quite sure if any of the other girls will turn heel right away, though...

The Sendai Girls one day tournament ended up with the expected winner, but the shocking news was the announcement that Tyrannosaurus Okuda has left the promotion.  It is unclear why this is happening, but after some Googling and running some blog statements through translators, it appears that she is NOT retiring and plans on returning as a free-lancer this summer under a different name (probably her real name).  There is the possibility that this could be an angle-where she pops up if/when she returns will be a big clue.  I do hope she comes back somewhere, as she was one of my favorite of the new generation and it would be a shame to lose her this soon into her career.

It was also announced that the Jaja Uma Tournament will return, with shows in February, March, and April.  I don't know who is in the tournament yet.

In the actual tournament, DASH & Hiren went to a 20 minute draw and Hiren (despite what the profile page on the Sendai Girls website says) advanced by being lighter.  Sachiko beat Ishino and lost to Meiko.  Miz beat Hiren and lost to Meiko.  One blogger said that the old weak feeble Hiren is gone and she is much more aggressive now.

The fact they removed her from their website already (and yet some other things like Yukari's profile) have been left unchanged for months indicates this could be an angle...

EHHHHHHhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh.    Go away for a weekend and This happens?  I don't know what I think about Okuda leaving right now.  On one side, I just can't see this being an angle - on the other hand I just can't see why Okuda would leave a promotion where she's got lots of friends (I am assuming here, but they must be pretty close surely?), is the top junior of the group and would have some big backing with regards to wins and losses in Meiko and Shinzaki.  One thing I can think is that they couldn't afford to support an injured girl but if she has no intention of leaving the business then that doesn't seem to make sense either.  I sounds like she can support herself for the period that she is out so why would Sendai be bothered?

The other girl was the tall one from Sendai.  I forgot her name but she never debuted and hasn't been seen doing ring-girl duties since last summer, so she presumably didn't make it.

Okuda was at the show when she announced her decision to leave.  Everything I've read seems to indicate that this was her decision and I'm getting the sense that she wants to live in Tokyo and in a less restrictive environment than the traditional dojo system that Meiko likes.  If this is the case, then I bet Satomura is pretty bleeping pissed off, especially after giving Okuda the "golden girl/chosen one" push.

Some photos from the show (Okuda grew her hair back out and seems to be a bit thinner in the face).

I'm frankly a bit disappointed in the outsiders-it comes across as a tournament with the second tier junior talent.  Of course, the positive spin is that the next group is getting a chance, as Nakajima, Matsumoto, etc. don't really need this tourney anymore.  I did want to see Hiroyo job to a Sendai Girl.  I am stoked at the possible Miz/Oikawa match and hope this one makes it to us.  Hiren seems to be in the toughest bracket to get to the semis and I'm afraid she's getting sacrificed again.

The mysterious entrant seems to be that masked "Raika" character that debuted at a recent Ibuki show.  I think my earlier speculation about this person being a JWP trainee was wrong and I frankly have no clue who this is.

My predictions-keeping in mind that a couple of non-Sendai wrestlers will probably get at least as far as the semifinals.

First Round: Esui beats Minori Makiba, Ryo Mizunami beats Raika, Hiren beats Hanako Kobayashi, Yoko Yamada beats Yukari Ishino

Second Round: Esui beats DASH Chisako, Ryo Mizunami beats Chihiro Oikawa, Misaki Ohata beats Hiren, Sendai Sachiko beats Yoko Yamada

Semifinals: Ryo Mizunami beats Esui, Misaki Ohata beats Sendai Sachiko

Finals: Ryo Mizunami beats Misaki Ohata (if she can't get revenge on Matsumoto, at least she gets her tag partner)

With all of this Ibuki talent, maybe Mariko Yoshida will come out of her hiatus and wrestle Meiko?

Depends on the booking method, if they are going to use the old "tough route to elevation" method for Hiren then she could be going to win the hard way.

Meiko Satomura announced in her blog that Sendai Girls will run their first show outside of Sendai/Miyagi Prefecture on May 10th.  It will be a homecoming show for Meiko, as it will be in Niigata.  I checked the purolove archive and I believe the last time Meiko worked a show in her hometown was 2003, as she was injured in 2004 the last time GAEA ran Niigata.

Chigusa sure loved to book Meiko to lose at home (WWE style), so maybe she can give herself a big win this time.

Well, it's her decision.  If she wants to freelance it's on her.  We don't know if SENDAI told her she couldn't live in Tokyo and still work for them or what.  They let Hiren go cavort with Oz, but again, who knows? But the real questions is if she'll sign with another promotion and how she'll find freelancing with the other girls now that she has no backing and considering that for all intents and purposes, she's very much a rookie still.

That said.  I want to see Ayumi v. Okuda now.  *whee

SENDAI GIRLS "JAJA UMA TOURNAMENT" February 21, 2009
Sendai Harbor International Business Center "Accelerator"


1. DASH Chisako & Sendai Sachiko vs Misaki Ohata & Chihiro Oikawa (15:00) went to a timelimit draw.
2. First Round: Yoko Yamada defeated Yukari Ishino (7:02) with a Sleeper Hold.
3. First Round: Esui defeated Minori Makiba (8:48) with a Chokeslam.
4. First Round: Hanako Kobayashi defeated Hiren (14:06) with a Fisherman Suplex Hold.
5. First Round: Ryo Mizunami defeated Raika (9:23) with a Modified Arm Lock.

I'm not positive on some of the finishers and I'll clean this up later if needed.  The opener sounds like the best match to me, as the four ladies with first round byes met up in a tag match.  They went to a draw and according to a blog report it sounds like DASH had just hit her frogsplash on Oikawa when time expired. 

The actual tournament went pretty much as expected.  I'm not terribly happy with Hiren jobbing to Hanako Kobayashi, but I'm not surprised.  The next round will be DASH vs Esui, Miz vs Oikawa, Sachiko vs Yamada, and Kobayshi vs Ohata.

Oh, and WTF with Meiko not working a match?  As far as I know, she's not injured.  My blogger said they announced Meiko vs Aja for the Niigata homecoming show in May.  I'd be pissed if I spent 5000 yen on this card and didn't get Satomura.

It's a work. Is it better when the results are predictable? Maybe it was even worked as an upset. The Cardinals "shouldn't have been" in the Super Bowl in the first place. If pro wrestling is presented as a sport, aren't those kinds of things supposed to happen?

I won't go into predictability in wrestling aside from saying it has its pros and cons. The fact is though that's not really what the problem with this current result is.
Title: Re: SENDAI
Post by: Fanboy on February 23, 2009, 04:11:13 AM
Announced attendance was 350, which is quite low for Sendai Girls, but not surprising with no Meiko on the card and a bunch of young nobodies as the visitors. Seriously, this was probably the weakest card for any show (excepting the shows with no outsiders) that Sendai has ever had.

Some phots from the usual sources. Hanako has a new costume and Hiren was in jobber red rather than cool trashy lacy black.  Actually, it sounds like Hiren had most of the control of that match and Hanako got kind of lucky. They probably had to give Hanako a win so Kaoru Ito would keep sending her up, as she apparently has family ties to the area.  Misaki Ohata is a Sendai native, and Chihiro Oikawa grew up near Sendai as well.

I dont think so at this point...in the beginning I woulve agreed.

3. Jaja Uma Tournament Quarterfinal: Sendai Sachiko vs Yoko Yamada
4. Jaja Uma Tournament Quarterfinal: Ryo Mizunami vs Chihiro Oikawa
5. Jaja Uma Tournament Quarterfinal: DASH Chisako vs Esui

So again no Meiko :(  I understand that they want the focus on the younger wrestlers, but I'd be disappointed and less likely to buy a ticket if I was in Sendai.  They reminded us of the Sendai Girls stipulation where if a match goes to a 20 minute time limit draw, the lighter wrestler advances. 

Title: Re: SENDAI
Post by: Sabrina the Teenage Cracker on March 26, 2009, 05:53:54 AM
Hmm, I see Hanako/Ohata going to a draw to appease Ito Dojo, but since Ohata's smaller she still advances.

I doubt it'll happen, but I'm rooting for her, or one of the Kanari sisters.(Sachiko could win, but I don't see Meiko letting a smaller girl win, unless it's by draw)

I don't see Chihiro getting her first win here, so it'd be useless to root for her. I could see Esui getting over Chisako, but I hope it doesn't happen.

But most likely they'll just have Miz win since she didn't last year.
Title: Re: SENDAI
Post by: Fanboy on March 26, 2009, 06:12:04 AM
My predictions:
Ohata (There's an Ito Dojo show the same day as the finals, so Hanako won't be there-ELPS could be right and they use the 20 minute draw and let Misaki advance that way).
Sachiko (Yoko Yamada doesn't have much experience and is a free-lancer, so one of the sisters can advance)
Mizunami (She's winning the tournament, so Oikawa doesn't get this win.  This on paper looks like the best match of the night).
Esui (DASH is too small and her job is to bump and make Esui look like a credible monster.  They may tease the time limit draw, but I hope they don't because I don't think DASH can carry Esui for that long)

Semis: Sachiko beats Ohata (could easily go the other way), Miz kills Esui. 
Finals: Miz beats Sachiko
Title: Re: SENDAI

The results as I expected, setting up Miz vs Esui and Ohata vs Sachiko in the semifinals next month.  ELPS called it-they used the time limit draw for Misaki vs Hanako, with Ohata advancing due to being lighter.

Because she is monster size and they probably will push her as one in the next few years. Really it would have been fucking stupid for her to lose to a midget like Chisako who is still at rookie level more or less herself.

Chisako's job is to make people like Esui look good.  If she bumped her ass off and made Esui look like a world beater, then she did good.  She's too small to ever get a singles push and a best case scenario for her is to have Kaori Yoneyama's career.  I think people bitch too much about Yoneyama's jobbing, as she's still very over with the crowd and with us and makes others look better.  Remember, pro wrestling needs good jobbers as well as stars.

As far as the Sendai tournament, there's an obvious Sendai vs Ibuki thing going on, with both semis having one Senjo wrestler and one Ibuki wrestler.  I guess the most likely thing is a Senjo vs Ibuki final, probably Miz vs Ohata with Miz winning the tournament.  I wouldn't be surprised if she then got the next shot at the junior belts at Ibuki's Korakuen Hall show in May and could even win, as Hiroyo's pretty much been pushed past the junior division at this point.

I really hope we can somehow get a Meiko vs Mariko match-up out of this, as they have both stayed on the sidelines throughtout this tournament.  I'm not sure if/when Yoshida is gonna even wrestle again, as she hasn't worked a match since Ibuki's December show.

Thing is, I think Kaori IS a star. I know you need jobbers, but I don't think she's one, and think she's only made to be one due to her size.

I think Chisako could be successful as a tag team wrestler. Though as you said, due to size, no one's gonna wanna push her....well except me. *wail

Senjo has two shows next weekend, including the finale of the Jaja Uma tournament.  They aren't terribly strong cards, as the only outsiders being used are Misaki Ohata, Chihiro Oikawa, Esui, and Minori Makiba.  At least Meiko will actually wrestle.  I predict everyone still in the tournament will win on the 18th and I'm sticking with Miz over Misaki in the finals.

Title: Re: SENDAI
Post by: Fanboy on April 18, 2009, 08:38:43 AM
A little house show before the end of the Jaja Uma tournament tomorrow.  Two draws is a bit disappointing, but I think there are reasons for both.  Ishino & Makiba seem to be matched up each other a lot.  They are both 16 and have the judo background.  I know Makiba got to team up with Nanae Takahashi in Ice Ribbon and win the "NEO2" tag belts recently.  Maybe Yukari will get a shot at that in the future?

Also, a continuation of Ohata vs Cross sisters.  If you saw the S-Arena clips from the last Ibuki show, Chisako & Misaki got into a fight after their match and DASH was mouthing off about a title challenge.  I think the plan is for Ohata & DASH to have a #1 Contenders' match at Ibuki's golden week show, and the winner gets to challenge Hiroyo Matsumoto for the JWP Junior & P.O.P. belts at Ibuki's 4th anniversary show at Korakuen Hall at the end of May.  Thus, they tie today and Ohata gets sister Sachiko tomorrow.  And no, I don't know why either Chisako or Misaki should be getting a title shot.

I would have liked to have seen Sachiko-Chihiro get more time.  I'm not crazy about it but I knew Hiren would job to Esui, as no one still in the tournament was going to lose today.

I expect Miz to beat Esui, Ohata to beat Sachiko (less sure about this one), and Miz to win the tourney.

5. Jaja Uma Tournament Final: Sendai Sachiko defeated Ryo Mizunami (9:20) with a German Suplex Hold.

So we got the all-Senjo final and Sachiko scores a mild upset over the Miz.  So I guess Sendai Sachiko is maybe going to get the Okuda role as Meiko's main protege.  Ishino scored her first pin, over her frequent opponent Minori Makiba.  This was a good result, as it would mean nothing for Meiko to pin Makiba or Oikawa.

Hiren disappointed me by wearing the Sendai outfit.  I find it interesting that Chikayo chose to use an Ozaki finishing move on Hiren.  Is she sending a message to D-FIX, who are challenging for the OZ tag belts?

Meiko got the win I expected.  I don't know yet how it will match up with their past bouts.

Stars can be jobbers, remember Barry Horowitz?

Wrestling feds always have this fascination with "freaks of nature" yawn, not that i am saying Esui is the joshi El Gigante which is a rather disturbing thought to be honest.

not familiar with El Gigante but i am very thankful you didn't compare her to either Giant Gonzales or (God forbid) Khali

It seems that Sendai Sachiko injured her foot at the Ibuki show.  DASH Chisako had a blog post that her sister was complaining about pain in her foot and she took her to the hospital.  The translation is rough, but I think Sachiko has either broken her foot or damaged a ligament or both and it sounds like an operation will be needed.  *gloom This explains why neither of them were in the photos of all the wrestlers after the event.

I just posted in Meiko's thread that she's out of action again with continued problems with her back.  With Sendai Sachiko's broken leg, Sendai is down to 4 healthy girls, but they have 3 shows to do this weekend.

Results of the first:

SENDAI GIRLS June 26, 2009
Kurihara City Wakayanagi Community Center


1. Ryo Mizunami vs Misaki Ohata (10:00) ended in a time-limit draw.
2. Ray defeated Yukari Ishino (10:12) with a Moonsault Press.
3. Esui defeated DASH Chisako (13:50) with a Chokeslam.
4. KAORU, Hiren, & DASH Chisako defeated Ryo Mizunami, Yukari Ishino, & Misaki Ohata (21:01) when Hiren used a Yakuza Kick on Ishino.

2. DASH Chisako vs Misaki Ohata (10:00) ended in a time-limit draw.

4. KAORU, Hiren, & Esui defeated DASH Chisako, Ryo Mizunami, & Yukari Ishino (16:38) when KAORU used the Valkyrie Splash on Ishino

Another draw for Ohata-she really can't lose while the junior champion, but it doesn't look like Sendai wants their girls to lose to her.

Poor Yukari has counted the lights 4 times in 2 days and might get 2 more in tomorrow, on the last day of this 3 day mini-tour.

2. DASH Chisako vs Misaki Ohata (10:00) went to a time-limit draw.
3. Esui defeated Yukari Ishino (10:25) with a Chokeslam.
4. KAORU, Ray, & Hiren defeated DASH Chisako, Ryo Mizunami, & Yukari Ishino (18:55) when Hiren pinned Mizunami.

Probably the most interesting part of this series of shows, beyond Satomura's chronically bad back rearing up again, was the trade of pinfalls between Miz and Hiren.

Photos from this show are here: http://blog.bodymaker.jp/user/nobu/nobu/image/41513.jpg (http://blog.bodymaker.jp/user/nobu/nobu/image/41513.jpg)  Notice Hiren wore her Sendai red for the opener but put on the trashy make-up and black OZ Army outfit for the main event.
Title: Re: SENDAI

Doubt the pinfall trades will lead anywhere, but a feud between Mizunami and Hiren would be a good place to start if Sendai decides to push their girls past the rookie phase finally.

Results of the first of the series of 3 shows this weekend.  They do yet another draw with Ohata. I don't know why matches with Ohata vs X always have a 10 minute time limit when the others go longer. I'm a bit suprised that Esui got a win over the Miz.  Those two are booked against each other all weekend, with a tag on Saturday and another singles match on Sunday.  I expect Ryo to get her job back.

4. KAORU & Ryo Mizunami defeated Hiroyo Matsumoto & Esui (12:45) when Mizunami used a Diving Guillotine Drop on Esui.

Ohata in another draw. I guess she can't lose singles matches since she's junior champ, but it doesn't seem like Meiko wants her girls dropping falls to her.  Hiren & Ohata will meet again in the main event tag tomorrow (with KAORU & Ray as their respective partners).  I'd like to see Hiren pick up a win and challenge for the titles.   

DASH and Hanako have a rematch tomorrow.  I think Hanako will win tomorrow.  Ishino gets to lose to Hiroyo tomorrow.

Miz got her job back from Esui and they have a singles match tomorrow.  I think Miz will win again.

I don't have match times yet.  The major news is more SHIT, as now Ryo Mizunami is hurt.  She injured her knee during the match with Esui, the match had to be stopped, Meiko & Jinsei were in the ring attending to her, and she got carried out.  I don't know anything further, but I bet at minimum this will cancel the Miz/Kurihara match in WAVE on 8/10.  I haven't heard any announcement regarding the next Sendai Girls show; of course, they are now down to 3 healthy workers (DASH, Hiren, Ishino).

I seriously doubt it was a work.  Meiko goes for pretty straight-forward non-gimmick booking (unlike Ozaki) and they would have just booked a time-limit draw if they wanted no one to win the rubber match.  Also, the blogger said Esui was crying her eyes out, so either she's a really good actress, she was responsible (or at least thinks she was responsible) for the injury, or was just upset about the situation.  There's no one to know, since these house shows won't be on TV.

So how much longer do you think Sendai will last with this many injuries? Might be best for them to temporarily stop running for half a year or so until most of these injuries are healed back up. They can still get bookings for Hiren and co.

Yeah, they were very thin even before Mizunami's injury.  If she's out for any length of time, then you are right and they probably need to take a hiatus in Sendai, get Hiren/DASH/Ishino as many bookings in Tokyo as they can, maybe have the healthy girls do offer matches at Michinoku Pro shows if they need more matches, until everyone is ready to go.

2. KAORU defeated Hiren (7:55) with a Moonsault Press.
3. DASH Chisako & Hiren defeated KAORU & Chihiro Oikawa (11:25) when Chisako used the Hormone Splash on Oikawa.

Just a minor show that was part of a festival.  Yukari Ishino was the referee-I don't know why she didn't work unless she has a minor injury.  It has been announced that Ryo Mizunami has a knee injury that does not require surgery at this point.  She sat this out but will work the WAVE show on 8/10, with that decision match against Ayumi Kurihara.  She will be wearing a knee brace.  I hope she doesn't pull a Sonoko Kato and work on bad knees until she can't walk and miss FIVE years healing.

No future Sendai Girls shows have been announced at this point.  For the immediate future, Miz is involved in WAVE, Yukari in NEO & Ice Ribbon (she's been booked for both Ice Ribbon's Korakuen show and NEO's show in her hometown Osaka), and Hiren & DASH Chisako in OZ Academy (Hiren as a regular who will face Chisako at the Plum show; I anticipate DASH will get worked into OZ storylines somehow).

*Faints*

I dunno about Ohata's chances...Meiko's kept Miz pretty safe in their matches never actually letting Ohata get the big W on her...while it is true one could think WHY DID THEY RANDOMLY COMBINE THE TITLES? and get BECAUSE THEY'RE GONNA PUT THE TITLES ON THE MIZ....but if you look at the date, Ohata will be going on her 3rd year and would be ineligible to hold the title after October.....However, JWP likes to keep a good working relationship with Sendai, hell they even let them put the title on the Okuda, and they also haven't done much with Ibuki, so that slims down Ohata's chances even more. However Meiko's old school, and Ohata technically, if you don't count Ryo's GAEA debut, has more than a half a year experience edge, so Meiko might not want Miz to go over. If Ohata does lose this, this will be like the worst title reign since Angelina Love or Taylor Wilde's. *bwah

I'm comparing the title reign, not the wrestler. And Shantelle Taylor's a good wrestler who's really learned to connect with the crowd this year thanks to her feud with Daffney.

oh ... okay. but let's not assume first.

I don't see what's so bad about Ohata's title reign.  She won the title upsetting Hiroyo Matsumoto at Ibuki's biggest show of the year, and she's defended it twice (Io Shirai & Pinkie Mayuka).  Admittedly the Pinkie match was spoiled since Pinkie was working with that injury and really shouldn't have been in the match at all in that condition.  Even if Ohata drops the title to Miz, she had it for half a year and defended it twice, which is fine for a junior belt that should change hands frequently.

I do think Miz is winning the title and either Esui or Aya Yuki will be her first challenger.

A free show from inside a shopping mall, just so the fine citizens of Sendai don't forget about their little joshi puro promotion.

No, really, they were inside the mall.  Grab an Orange Julius and a Cinnabun and watch girls wrestle from the top of the escalator!

Actually, you see that expression a lot in shopping malls.  He looks like the husbands/boyfriends sitting outside of the store with shell-shocked expression on their faces.

Sendai had their first real show in several months, featuring Satomura's return in a big match vs Azumi Hyuga.  Also, there was a junior title match between Ohata and Mizunami.  ELPS, just close your browser now.

I don't have match times or photos yet, will try to get once someone posts them.  I have info that DASH Chisako & Ryo Mizunami had new costumes (YAY) and that a contest was announced for fans to submit suggestions for a new ring name for Yukari Ishino.  She does want "Osaka" as part of her ring name. 

Also, the next show will be at Zepp Sendai on January 31st.  It has been announced that Dynamite Kansai will face Ishino (and her new name) and that Fuuka will be on the card.

Oh, a few changes, as Ishino faced Hamuko Hoshi rather than Minori Makiba.  I don't know why.  Also, the Hiren vs Aya Yuki match was completely cut, as Hiren is injured and they didn't even bother finding some scrub to face Yuki in a match no one would care about anyway.
Ishino got her first victoy in Sendai and I think this is the first time the Sendai Girls have pitched a shutout against outsiders.

EDIT: Nobu has photos up.  Not sure I like DASH's costume (looks a bit too Jeff Hardy inspired) and Miz looks like freaking Aya Yuki now and should be a nominee for Worst Hair 2009.  Also, Satomura did not use a Death Valley Bomb and he was speculating that she's not going to use it anymore and will concentrate on kicks (including Muay Thai stuff) and submission moves.  It's probably a move to protect her bad back.

I've pretty much accepted Ohata was gonna lose here. I love Chisa's gear, though Miz's looks like she took hand-me-downs from Rie Tamada.

Was hoping Hyuga vs Satomura would have gone on longer than that. I mean it's the first and last match between two legends and it doesn't even go 20 min? That's a little BLEH for my tastes. But looking at it, they probably aren't able to order more than an hour of time from Samurai TV or GAORA(can't remember which they use now) and the entire bell to bell time of all the match is 54:34. Granted they could have clipped the first two matches, but whatever.

Another batch of photos.  I like the pure randomness of Chisako's shirt (Super Bowl XXIX was like 15 years ago!).  I'm not sure whether I hate or love her Jeff Hardy armthings, but at least she doesn't look like mini-Meiko anymore.  Miz's new gear is bleh.

Yeah, I guess that stuff on Miz's outfit sort of looks like a wave.  Her ring name "Mizunami" is sort of a combo of Mizumura (her real family name) and tsunami.  Funny, I think that name was chosen long before she started working in WAVE.

I'd expect Sachiko's new gear to be more clean-cut and girly, as I don't think she's a little emo punker like Chisako.  There was a recent photo in Sachiko's blog where she went to some Michael Jackson tribute show.  I don't think Chisako was there.  *haha

I'll go ahead and post the details of the Sendai Girls Battlefield tournament here.  There will be 12 wrestlers in a single elimination tournament.  The first two rounds will be on April 9, the semifinals on May 9, and the finals on July 9.

Both Hiren and Sendai Sachiko will return from injury.  Kana was originally supposed to be in this tournament, but was removed for unknown reasons (speculate away, if you must) and replaced by Toshie Uematsu.  The Hiroyo/Miz/Toshie part of the draw is the only one that has any mystery, as obviously Meiko, Nanae, and Tamura will advance.  Sendai has the brackets set where each day will have "Meiko vs Big Name", with Meiko/Aja in April, and presumably Meiko/Nanae in the semis in May and Meiko/Tamura in the finals in July.  I expect Satomura is getting her job back from the NEO anniversary show in Kawasaki.

These are very basic results I got from someone's Twitter http://twitter.com/aoikougei (http://twitter.com/aoikougei).  Later on I'll get the official results up (unless Hama gets them first).

2nd Battlefield Tournament


1. Round 1: Ryo Mizunami defeated Hiroyo Matsumoto
2. Round 1: DASH Chisako defeated Sendai Sachiko
3. Round 1: Nanae Takahashi defeated Hiren
4. Round 1: Aja Kong defeated Kagetsu
5. Round 2: Ryo Mizunami defeated Toshie Uematsu
6. Round 2: Yoshiko Tamura defeated DASH Chisako
7. Round 2: Nanae Takahashi defeated Kaori Yoneyama
8. Round 2: Meiko Satomura vs. Aja Kong went to a time-limit draw.  Satomura advances on the weight rule (i.e. in Sendai Girls tournaments, the lighter wrestler advances if there is a draw)

So the semifinals on May 9th are Tamura vs Mizunami and Satomura vs Takahashi.  I think it's pretty obvious we are getting Meiko/Yoshiko II as the finals on July 9th.  NEO is running a house show in Niigata (Satomura's hometown) in mid-May and if they are smart they'll do a tag involving both.

Results are more or less what I expected.  The only real mystery was whether Miz/Hiroyo/Toshie would advance.  Miz makes sense to give a semi-push to one of the Sendai youngsters, plus Hiroyo owed Sendai a job for winning the first Jaja Uma tournament and injuring Okuda in what turned out to be Okuda's last match in Senjo.  Miz beating Uematsu is a good win for her and about the only veteran other than Yoneyama who you could possibly see doing a job.  Kana was originally supposed to be in this tournament, but was replaced by Toshie.  Wonder if there's any story there?

I have to admit I didn't see the Meiko-Aja draw, but I guess I should have as Aja probably didn't want to lose two singles in a row to Meiko and Satomura had to advance.

I'll get complete results and hopefully photos in a few hours.
Title: Re: SENDAI
Post by: FLIK on April 09, 2010, 06:42:14 AM
My thoughts are pretty much the same as yours on this one. Only things kept this from being 100% predictable was Aja/Meiko being a draw and Toshie losing to Ryo.

Think they'd have the balls to follow this up with Meiko/Nanae as a draw too?

Otherwise you just know Nanae's gonna have to get her win back. 99.999% chance she's gonna be JWP champ at the time this happens too which would logically set up Meiko as challenger.

Can't see JWP running an all outsider title match on the top of one of their cards though so have to wonder if they'd let Nanae do it at a Passion show.

God, Sendai really is the most boringly booked joshi promotion around today. A few good to great matches each year involving random guest stars but beyond that, nothing exciting or interesting or memorable ever happens. Though maybe it's not really fair to even call them a promotion anymore I guess. They run so few shows now that they're more just a booking office/training camp that ocasionally puts on cards similar to Ibuki/S-Ovation.

Hopefully this is the start of a trent for Ryo but I doubt it. Sad to think how little all the Sendai youngsters have progressed after 4 or so years in the business as by and large they're all still treated as young rookie job girls with no upward momentum or major acomplishments. By this stage in her career, Meiko had allready gotten a big win over Aja and was getting pushed up the card to be a main event title challenger.

We get the expected tournment final on July 9th (why a two month wait?).  I'm disappointed but not surprised that we didn't get a clean job from Nanae-I'm not crazy about Meiko advancing two rounds in a row on the lighter weight stipulation.  Good thing she wasn't facing Emi Sakura, who is a master of the crash diet!

After Kagetsu pinned Hiren, she asked for a junior title shot.  What she got was a rematch against Hiren, this time in singles, for the #1 Contender's spot for the JWP Junior/P.O.P. titles and that will be on the July show as well.

QFT

Though I do think Sendai buttfucked themselves. This tournament, at least in my view of it, is partially to get back Meiko's ..uhm..drawing power sort of..like she's known as a legit badass of Joshi, but with all these injuries and all the female reproductive organing otu of Hyuga's knee attacks...could hurt her drawing power. So I thought of this tournament as a way to get that back by having her go over some big names in Joshi..but 2 draws in a row kinda kills that purpose.

2. Ryo Mizunami vs Kagetsu
3. Ryo Mizunami & Kagetsu vs DASH Chisako & Sendai Sachiko

Attendance is free to the public, so no Meiko in the ring.  That costs yen.

Guess who visited Sendai a few days ago, just before the 4th anniversary show that's on Friday?

(http://www.sendaigirls.jp/cgi-bin/html/chisako/datachisako/1278501829.jpeg)

Why, it's Senator Kandori!  She told the Sendai Girls that in a few short decades, that they too will be ready to compete in LLPW!  I wonder if Meiko asked about getting her job back from that tournament three years ago...

SENDAI GIRLS July 9, 2010
Zepp Sendai
4th Anniversary Show


1. JWP Jr. & P.O.P. #1 Contendership Match: Hiren defeated Kagetsu (12:19) with a Diving Neckbreaker.
2. Aja Kong & Nanae Takahashi defeated Ryo Mizunami & Hiroyo Matsumoto (24:12) when Kong used a Vertical Drop Brainbuster on Mizunami.
3. JWP & Daily Sports Tag Team Championship: KAZUKI & Toshie Uematsu defeated DASH Chisako & Sendai Sachiko (17:32) when Uematsu used a Dragon Suplex Hold on Sachiko.
4. 2nd Battlefield Tournament Final: Meiko Satomura defeated Yoshiko Tamura (17:21) with Scorpion Rising.

Hiren's going with reddish hair now and from the photos seemed to be heeling it up, grabbing Kagetsu by the hair and refusing the handshake before the match and using a length of rope to choke Kagetsu during the match.

Kong cut a big promo on Miz after the match (probably the usual humiliating stuff) and Miz promised she'll beat Satomura within a year.

It sounds like it looked like Tamura kicked out just before three, but lost anyway.  I don't know if this was a botch or on purpose.  I'd prefer a cleaner ending unless they are going to meet one more time.

They announced the card for a house show later this month and one match from the next Zepp Sendai show (TV?) in September.

I didn't realize that Kandori was on the campaign trail, as July 11th was election day for the House of Councillors (the Upper House) of their legislature.  The Japanese election system is complicated and quite a bit different from the US system I'm familiar with, but it looks like the LDP (Liberal Democrats) did well and that's Kandori's party, so I think it is fairly likely that she'll keep her seat.  The LDP has traditionally been the strongest party, but had recently lost elections to the DPJ, but the DPJ did poorly yesterday and Prime Minister Naoto Kan may be quickly out of office (he's only been in for a month).

I think Kandori promised Satomura her "job" back if Satomura voted for the LDP, but that's probably as good as the usual political promise  *haha

Yeah, Hiren's probably gonna be a transitional champion.  I could actually envision Ice Ribbon getting the junior belts for a while, since most of the '06 debuts (Sendai Girls, Hiroyo, Ohata, etc) are getting close to the five years and the JWP rookies aren't ready yet and there aren't too many other options.  Kagetsu will probably get it in a year or so. 

If Ice Ribbon beats Sendai in the big 5 vs 5 tag, I could see whoever gets the last pin (assuming it isn't Natsuki*Taiyo) challenging Hiren for the shot and Sendai's probably more willing to job Hiren to Ice Ribbon than Miz.

Or I could book joshi and Hiren will CHEAT forever and beat all comers.
Title: Re: SENDAI
Post by: Sabrina the Teenage Cracker on September 03, 2010, 10:43:36 AM
Yeah that was my first thought too, that she was a transitional champ. They have her win in some ridiculous way, so Miz isn't cleanly jobbed out.

I could see Kagetu winning it from her, but I'm still guessing it's someone from Ice Ribbon.

Title or not, the real thing that matters is she did something so bad, that Meiko and Aja were completely disgusted, which also means she's possibly going to start a feud with two absolute legends. Really proud of her.

no, seriously, this generation of new wrestlers barely produced a HEEL that the audience could barely care about. yeah, Kana generated heat with her manifesto but technically she isn't so young (*ducking from rocks thrown my way). and others, while they act the part of being bitchy, simply bitchy enough. suffice to say, the best person to rely on to produce the next generation of EFFIN' BITCHES would be Ozaki. and i really like what she's done so far to Hiren. she has the look and the attitude not to mention the ability to play the internet in packaging herself as the next BIATCH!!!!

 Maybe we'll get some random footage like the matches that popped up from some random outdoor show this past summer, but probably not.  I wouldn't be surprised if Hiren & Fujimoto will have a junior titles match at a later time and this match is just for them to get experience with each other.  I'm sure Ozaki will try to humiliate Kagetsu.  Flip a coin for which sister counts the lights.

Next Zepp Sendai show is 10/29; still no card beyond Meiko/Aja vs Miz/Kagetsu.

We've got the full card for the next Zepp Sendai show on October 29th.  I believe this show and the show from September will be televised together on Samurai.

We have a debut.  Her name is 杜野都.  The online translaters have failed me and I haven't found any more info yet-no photo, age, size, etc.  I'll post if/when I find more info.

Obviously Sachiko will beat the new girl.  DASH is a good opponent for Kana, as Kana's good at dishing out an ass-kicking and Chisako is good at taking an ass-kicking.  I wonder if there's any chance for a shocker in the main event (ala Meiko's first pin over Aja in a tag match on 4/4/99) or if it will be the expected extended squash.

I myself am a slight bit upset, but if that means Hiren and Ryo Mizunami go to like, WAVE or something, I'll be happy.  I know Okuda leaving was a big blow, as was Satomura's several injuries - and their booking didn't help anything either.  *give

Maybe she got frustrated that everytime she built someone up to be nearly as good as her, they got injured or left(Basara and Sachikat) but still...saying that because they're not as good as you in 5 years is a little rough, plus Meiko got megapushed and was allowed to work with top flight workers constantly. THe sendai girls were jobbers and only worked a couple shows a year.

Either way, this means Meiko's freelance and the other girls freelance too, so all is good in my book.

Disappointed to hear that. I think Sendai was one of the few promotions with potential to grow into, but they never did get a big enough roster. Hopefully none of the girls retire, but I honestly don't want them heading to WAVE, Oz, JWP, or freelancing either sans maybe Meiko (freelancing). I'm still holding out hope that S-OVATION has plans for a new promotion next year.

I think Frankie is jumping the gun a bit.

Here's an article from Yahoo Japan (similar stories in places like Sanspo):
http://sports.yahoo.co.jp/news/20101020-00000510-sanspo-fight.html (http://sports.yahoo.co.jp/news/20101020-00000510-sanspo-fight.html)

Blog post from Nobu (our joshi fan in Sendai)
http://nobumichinoku.blog53.fc2.com/blog-entry-1374.html (http://nobumichinoku.blog53.fc2.com/blog-entry-1374.html)

I ran them through translators, and while Frank's interpretation is certainly a possibility, it came across to me like Meiko was threatening to shut down Sendai Girls next year if the girls didn't step up and prove themselves.  Maybe I'm trying too hard to make a positive since I like Senjo more than most of you, but it sounds more like an angle to me, where Meiko is going to be the mean schoolmarm and torture the kids until maybe one of them can finally beat her.

If Sendai is shutting down (which is certainly possible), I'd expect Meiko to retire, Hiren to stay in OZ, Miz & Kagetsu to probably end up in WAVE, and Chisako & Sachiko might just disappear from the scene.

Disappointed to hear that. I think Sendai was one of the few promotions with potential to grow into, but they never did get a big enough roster. Hopefully none of the girls retire, but I honestly don't want them heading to WAVE, Oz, JWP, or freelancing either sans maybe Meiko (freelancing). I'm still holding out hope that S-OVATION has plans for a new promotion next year.

I don't see how the girls moving into another promotion is a bad thing. The other promotion's rosters aren't exactly big.

I'd like for someone who is fluent in Japanese or has a friend that is a native to read & report back on the story from Yahoo Japan.  It's just too easy to be misled by a faulty online translation.  I've run the same story through different translators before and you don't always get the same meaning.

I agree with Nikky in that if Sendai shuts down it would be nice to bolster the remaining promotions' rosters, assuming that S-Ovation doesn't come through with the type of promotion that a lot of us have been hoping for.

Looks like an angle. A 9 month challenge for a new ace to appear to save Sendai Girls. Meiko also says that she will retire if Senjo closes.

Because the girls would be nothing, but jobbers. None of those promotions have shown any real intent of pushing the current gen.

Yeah it looks like an angle. She said she will close SENDAI if the girls haven't shown major improvement by next July's 5th Anniversary.
Title: Re: SENDAI
Post by: UnstableProtagonist on October 21, 2010, 12:06:17 PM
I see this as an angle, too. I just don't think there's enough reason for the promotion to close down other than a limited active roster and the retirement of Satomura herself. 
Title: Re: SENDAI
Post by: DANgerous K on October 24, 2010, 05:30:27 AM
I would be surprised if Satomura wanted to retire so soon.  I mean why bother changing your style to prolong your career or even coming back in the first place? 

Still, they don't run a lot of shows so how can somebody get enough exposure to put over that they've actively pushed to get good enough to take her spot?

As much as I love Hiren, I don't see her suddenly developing into the heel ace of Sendai.  She needs a lot more dimensions.  Miz and Kagetsu obv look to have the best natural ability to do it but Kagetsu has a lot of ground to cover and Miz needs a little something I can't personally define.  Some of that babyface spirit like Meiko and Kato were so good at maybe.

Personality and charisma, things Hiren has. Hiren would be fine as SENDAI's top heel if she would get a deeper moveset and find a minion or two. She has a year to do all of it. And its sort of obvious Meiko is planning on pushing Miz sometime in the next year seeing that they already made story line of her wanting to beat Meiko within th enext year.

Zepp Sendai
? Fans


1. Tryout Match: 杜野都 (Mori Noto?) defeated Sakura Hirota (2:21) with a German Suplex Hold.
2. 杜野都 defeated Sendai Sachiko (8:29) with the Mori-Mori Clutch.
3. Kana defeated DASH Chisako (10:51) with a Chicken Wing Face Lock.
4. KAORU defeated Hiren (15:49).
5. Meiko Satomura & Aja Kong defeated Ryo Mizunami & Kagetsu (23:42) when Aja used a Vertical Drop Brainbuster on Mizunami.

Some hijinks in the undercard.  First, Sakura Hirota shows up unannounced and begs Meiko & Jinsei Shinzaki for a tryout match, as she badly wants to join Sendai Girls.  She is granted a match against the "rookie" and promptly loses in 2 minutes.  Oh, the "rookie" is announced as Misaki Ohata's younger sister, but I'm 99% sure its Misakitty. The "rookie" is scheduled to face Hiren at Sendai's house show on Sunday and I don't think Ohata has any other bookings for the weekend.

The "rookie" then goes on to beat Sendai Sachiko. Photos from http://nobumichinoku.blog53.fc2.com/ (http://nobumichinoku.blog53.fc2.com/) (not all matches up yet).  The other matches seemed to have expected results.  I don't have a blog report on the aftermath yet, but I assume Meiko yelled at the troops.

Sachiko is apparently blonde again and was doing something for Halloween

A small outdoor show for Halloween.  Misaki Ohata appeared again, kayfabing as her sister "Mori Noto" who is Sendai's new rookie.  The story is that there are Ohata triplets.  Misaki is the oldest and "Mori" is the next oldest.  After beating Sachiko on Friday, she even said that she had revenged her sister Misaki's loss at the 2009 Jaja Uma tournament, and that she prefers red while Misaki likes blue for her costume.  I'm eagerly awaiting the Kanari sisters versus Ohata sisters tag match.  Maybe Sakura Hirota can cosplay as Misakitty  *haha

I'd go crazy if they pull Hailey & Basara as a tag team in a Sendai Girls ring, but I doubt that will happen.

A complete card is up for the December show.  The final three matches are billed as "Generation Struggle".  Misaki Ohata will also return as her kayfabe sister "Mori Noto" (? on name), along with the first appearance by gaijin.  I'm a bit disappointed in no Sakura Hirota, unless she's going to make another unannounced attempt to make the roster.

Before the match, there was a taped greeting for Sakura Hirota apologizing for not being present.  Sachiko cosplayed as Hirota and it sounds like Sakura will be back for the January show.  I'm hoping for either Chisako & Sachiko vs the Ohata sisters (with Misaki as her fake sister and Hirota as Misaki) or Sakura Okuda.

Sachiko also had a little Santa outfit, similar to her Halloween outfit from the previous show. 

First show of 2011 is January 22 at Zepp Sendai.  Announced is the long-awaited Meiko/Kandori rematch, albeit in a tag match with unannounced partners.  My early guess is Meiko wins by beating Kandori's partner.

Yet another tournament announced today to determine the next challenger for JWP Jr. Champoin & POP Champion Hiren. This one's scheduled for 1/22 at Zepp Sendai. All matches will be 20 minute time limit, if it's a time limit draw the lighter wrestler (weight) advances. As you can see, DASH Chisako already gets a free pass into the semifinals.
The card also features Meiko Satomura & TBA vs. Shinobu Kandori & TBA.

If you aren't up on the names, it's "Yoku Morino" (i.e. Misaki Ohata's alterego) vs Ryo Mizunami, Sendai Sachiko vs Kagetsu, DASH Chisako vs Sachiko/Kagetsu winner, and the final is Ohata/Miz vs Sachiko/Kagetsu/Chisako. 

My guess is that Ohata & Miz will go to a time-limit draw, advancing Ohata and that Kagetsu will end up winning this tournament and will eventually win the title from Hiren.  I think it's time to move the junior titles from the '05-'06 gang to the '08-'10 cohort (i.e. Kagetsu, Sawako Shimono, several from Ice Ribbon, the newer JWP girls).

As far as this show, I guess Hiren will probably get some throw-away defense.  No idea who the Xs will be in the Satomura-Kandori tag.
Title: Re: SENDAI
Post by: Makabe Sword Justice on January 06, 2011, 10:51:48 AM
Probably will be either Sachiko or DASH Hardy. Wouldn't mind seeing Misaki get it again but given she & Mizunami were the last two champions they probably won't repeat and Miz is nearing the time limit for the belt (5 years experience).

With the tournament for the #1 contender's spot for the junior titles, everyone has a match except Hiren.  My guess is that Sakura Hirota's gonna be at this show (her return was teased at the December show) and maybe she'll face Hiren.

Rsults from yesterday's event at Zepp Sendai:
They claimed 500 paid (full house/sellout).
JWP Jr. Title & POP Title Next Challenger Tournament:
Kagetu beat Sendai Sachiko in 16:13.
Ryo Mizunami beat ? (that Akanishi person) in 8:10.
Semifinals:
Kagetu beat DASH Chisako in 7:22.
Ryo Mizunami beat Sakura Hirota in 3:40.
Finals: Kagetu beat Ryo Mizunami in 10:18 to win the tournament. As a result, Kagetu gets the next shot at JWP Jr. Champion & POP Champion Hiren. Date TBA. And probably doubled her career win total in just a couple hours. Not bad.

Hiren beat Moeka Haruhi in 8:25.

New Year Special Tag Match: Shinobu Kandori & Kana beat Meiko Satomura & Toshie Uematsu in 13:29. Kandori pinned Uematsu.
Title: Re: SENDAI
Post by: Fanboy on January 23, 2011, 07:33:53 AM
Yeah, a huge day for Kagetsu (that I predicted).  She did have that big showing during the Sendai Girls vs Ice Ribbon captain's fall match last year when she was responsible for eliminating Fujimoto, Shida, and Makoto to win the match, beating the last two when she was the only Sendai Girl left.  I expect she'll complete the job and beat Hiren.  This is a good way to get the belt off of Hiren, who is getting close to being around too long anyways, and to move the junior title from being the toy for the '05-'06 cohort (the original Sendai Girls, S-Ovation) to the '08-'10 cohort.  Kagetsu, if she wins, will probably have the better Ice Ribbon girls, Sawako Shimono from Osaka Joshi/WAVE, and JWP's rookies as challengers.

Also, Meiko gets to go all Chigusa Nagayo and berate the original class for being losers after the youngest one plows through the whole promotion to win a title.

Meiko's facing Kana again next month at the next Kana/Triple Tails show.  My guess is Meiko/Kandori II happens at the Sendai 5th anniversary show in July.

Obviously we have no idea if/when Sendai Girls will run a show again, as Miyagi Prefecuture and the whole NE coast has much bigger issues than prowres to deal with.  The Arabaki Rock Festival for late April, that Senjo and Michinoku Pro always appear at, is postponed at best.

The word is that Jinsei Shinzaki is now spending all day shuttling in food & supplies to Sendai and is using his restaurant to cook ramen to give to the poor folks that are still in shelters.  I think Meiko Satomura is still in Sendai as well, although she has only blogged once since the quake and didn't say anything specific.

It seems that the others are all now in Tokyo or Osaka and will be working for other promotions for the time being.  Hiren will continue working for OZ Academy and some WAVE appearances as part of the Black Dahlia heel promotion.  Ryo Mizunami & Kagetsu are also WAVE regulars these days, with Kagetsu also getting some JWP time due to being the current junior champ.  DASH Chisako is now in Tokyo, as she was at JWP's presser and Bolshoi's going to book her for some shows.  Sendai Sachiko was in Okinawa when the quake/tsunami hit, as she had spent a few weeks working almost daily at their small shows, but she's apparently in Tokyo now as well.  Sachiko posted a photo on her blog of her, Chisako (holding the Senjo dojo's dog), Miz, and Hiren.  Kagetsu might be staying in Osaka for now with her family, but I'm guessing there.

EDIT: Chisako just blogged as well.  Apparently Bolshoi invited her to train & work with JWP for the time being, so DASH is going to live in the JWP dojo and work their shows.  It sounds like (always hard to tell because I'm not reading the native language) that this really lifted her spirits.  She talked about eating yellowfin for the first time since the disaster.

A bump of the card as we get closer.  Kagetsu vs Sawako Shimono has been made a JWP Jr./P.O.P. Championship match.   Those two are also scheduled to meet in Osaka on July 17th at the next Osaka Joshi Pro show.  That match will be the 10th and final installment of Sawako's challenge series.  I predict time-limit draw in Sendai and Sawako breaks through with the win in Osaka, winning the titles if they get put on the line again.

As mentioned before, Senjo is charging nothing to attend and will be collecting money for disaster relief.

Sendai Girls had their first show since the earthquake & tsunami, at Zepp Sendai.  It was their 5th anniversary and the show was free to attend, with collections taken for charity.

The action started with another unannounced appearance by Sakura Hirota, again trying to audition for a spot in Senjo.  She lost again.  Ayumi Kurihara made what I believe is her first appearance in Sendai, beating Miyako Morino (aka Misaki Ohata's goody-goody alterego).  The Sendai sisters got a nice win, beating Ozaki & Hiren after Mayumi accidentally whacked Hiren with a chair.  Kagetsu beat Shimono for her V4 with the junior titles.  Those two are meeting again in Osaka in a few weeks; they are both Osaka natives and it's the final match of Sawako's challenge series, so we'll probably see Sawako win that one.  Meiko & Miz won the main event, with Satomura beating Uematsu.

Afterwards, it was announced that Jinsei Shinzaki is stepping down as Senjo president and that Satomura will take his place.  She announced that they will still be based in Sendai and compete there, but will run shows elsewhere, including their first show at Korakuen Hall on October 27th.

Sendai's first Tokyo event, which is Oct. 27th from Korakuen Hall, is a tournament involving teams from 8 promotions.  The quarterfinals are 5-vs-5 tags, the semis 3-vs-3, and the final is 2-vs-2.

The draw for matchups has: JWP vs WAVE, Sendai vs Ice Ribbon, REINA vs STARDOM, DIANA vs Team Freelance.

Meiko & Emi bickered a bit; Meiko doesn't like little kids wrestling, it seems.  I'm sure Senjo will beat IR and will at least make the finals, if not win the whole thing. 

My predictions:
Quarterfinals: JWP beats WAVE, Senjo beats IR, STARDOM beats REINA, DIANA beats Team Freelance (uh, their captain is Sakura Hirota)
Semis: Senjo beats JWP (Meiko gets her job back from Haruyama), STARDOM beats DIANA
Finals: Senjo beats STARDOM
Title: Re: SENDAI
Post by: JoshiFanficz on September 27, 2011, 06:25:45 PM
I'm not liking the drawing of matchups. STARDOM making the finals wouldn't sit right with me (despite the fact that they have Nanae and Natsuki), and I'd much rather if they did a draw that could've set up for a SENDAI vs JWP or SENDAI vs IR finals.

Still, should be an exciting show, and it's basically the Joshi equivalent of ALL TOGETHER.

Yeah, I would have set up the brackets differently myself, but it is what it is.

The teams will be subject to change, but here's what I've cobbled together.  Keep in mind that organizations with more than 5 members can "substitute" others in in case they make the semifinals or finals.

Team #1 JWP: Command Bolshoi, Kayoko Haruyama, Kaori Yoneyama, Leon, Hanako Nakamori
Team #2 WAVE: GAMI, Toshie Uematsu, Yumi Ohka, Shu Shibutani, Moeka Haruhi
Team #3 Sendai Girls: Meiko Satomura, DASH Chisako, Sendai Sachiko, Kagetsu, Yoku Morino (Misaki Ohata).  Ryo Mizunami & Hiren are "on the bench" but I'm sure they will appear in the semis and/or final.
Team #4 Ice Ribbon: Emi Sakura, Hikaru Shida, Tsukasa Fujimoto, Hikari Minami, Tsukushi, Riho (not sure who is sitting out-I think they'll use all the kids to annoy Meiko)
Team #5 STARDOM: Nanae Takahashi, Natsuki*Taiyo, Yoshiko, Yoko Bito, Mayu Iwatani (surprised at no Yuzuki Aikawa or Io Shirai, but maybe they will be used later)
Team #6 REINA: Yumiko Hotta, Aki Kambayashi, Saya, Aoi Ishibashi, unnamed foreign wrestler
Team #7 DIANA: Kyoko Inoue, Kaoru Ito, Keiko Aono, others (presumably drawn from Sareee/Jenny Rose/Annie Social/Sumie Sakai; the latter three are now all listed on the DIANA roster as well-not sure if Sumie is returning to Japan permanently or temporarily)
Team #8 Freelance: Sakura Hirota, Jaguar Yokota, Manami Toyota, Mio Shirai, Nancy Mari (Team "Random"-I'm sure the rookie from the Nagoya indy Nancy Mari is there to take the fall)

Something I didn't mention before about the FLASH tournament at Korakuen Hall on 10/27 is that the finals is actually a series of 3 matches: two singles matches and a 2-vs-2 tag.  Presumably the team that wins more of these matches will be the champion.

Sakura Hirota is on the poster but not on the card.  My guess is that she'll demand a last match from Hiren at the start of the show and will be the final victim of the Ankle Lock.

Well, if the Hiren retirement show doesn't get on Samurai, maybe it will at least pop up on USTREAM the way the 5th anniversary show did.

Some corrections to the Flash tournament line-up.  STARDOM & DIANA have not officially announced their line-ups.  The show's poster would indicate STARDOM is using Nanae Takahashi, Natsuki*Taiyo, Yoko Bito, Yoshiko, & Mayu Iwatani, but the poste also shows DIANA using Kyoko Inoue, Kaoru Ito, Keiko Aono, Aya Yuki, and Jenny Rose.  Of course Aya is no longer with DIANA and I'd expect Sareee or maybe Annie Social to replace her.  I'd be surprised if Yuzuki Aikawa or Io Shirai aren't used at some point during the tournament.

The poster is also wrong for Ice Ribbon, as Riho lost to Tsukushi and will not be in.  The final spot is still up for grabs between Fujimoto, Miyagi, and Nagano and I'd fully expect Fujimoto to get that spot.

This show is getting 3 hours and "near live" coverage on Samurai, so hopefully it will hit the Internet by the end of this month!

A couple of corrections:
Ice Ribbon's final spot is now down to the winner of an upcoming Tsukasa Fujimoto/Dorami Nagano match.
REINA is being represented by Zeuxis, not Saya.  They still have one open spot and it's hard to imagine they won't use Saya, who is Japanese and on the official roster.  Rookie Aoi Ishibashi (probably there to take the fall to STARDOM) is on the team, along with Hotta & Aki.
Still no official STARDOM line-up.

Oh, and a picture from Meiko's blog that's a great shot of GAEA Girls + Senjo (i.e. GAEA Girls: The Next Generation).

First round competitors are set except for REINA's last member (probably Saya).  STARDOM is resting Nanae Takahashi in the first round, a surprise but she'll obviously appear later and I wouldn't be shocked to see Io Shirai & Yuzuki Aikawa as well.  Senjo will probably use Ryo Mizunami & Hiren later in the tournament.

The tidbit about Ice Ribbon's Dorami Nagano being a failed Senjo trainee was interesting.  I never heard about her.  I wonder if she quit or if Meiko cut her?  It might have been interesting to have her in this event.

Still see it shaking down to Senjo vs STARDOM in the finals.

Senjo's first show in Osaka got a nice crowd for Minami Move On Arena.  They will run IMP Hall next February.  A big day for hometown favorite Kagetsu, getting a revenge win over fellow Osakan Sawako Shimono and the fall in the main event over Mizunami.

SPOILER ALERT:
Results for the FLASH tournament are below.  This show is getting "near-live" (i.e. same day) coverage on Samurai TV in Japan and will probably be available in the usual places online in a few days, so if you want to wait and watch the show spoiler free, leave this thread!






























Results and some pictures from http://kakutolog.cocolog-nifty.com/kakuto/2011/10/post-43db.html (http://kakutolog.cocolog-nifty.com/kakuto/2011/10/post-43db.html).  I'm still trying to verify if the final was just a 2 vs 2 tag match without the singles matches that were supposed to happen or if I just haven't found those results yet.  There's a possibility that the show might have been running long and the final was changed to just the tag match.

Brackets went exactly as I predicted.  Interesting that Meiko didn't win any of the matches herself.  I thought it was kind of weak for JWP to use the rookie Nana Kawasa in the semifinals, as that makes no kayfabe sense with a promotion with their roster size (i.e. they could have had someone like KAZUKI or Sachie Abe or Morii job to Hiren, getting a sentimental win in her final appearance in Korakuen).  Also, the final is a disappointment (at least on paper), as I was hoping for a Meiko-Nanae JMOTY candidate singles.  I wouldn't be surprised if Rossy Ogawa refused to let Nanae due the job.

If that attendance is legit, that's pretty damn good for a show where a big name wasn't retiring and the main draw was two groups (Senjo & Stardom) with one ace and a bunch of young wrestlers.

EDIT: www.purolove.com has the results up as well.  they have Meiko winning the final, but I think they are wrong, as I saw photos of Bull Nakano awarding the grand prize to Kagetsu.

EDIT: Results and photo at http://battle-news.com/battle/2011/10/000781.php seem to confirm Kagetsu as the winner of the final match.

EDIT: More at http://d.hatena.ne.jp/bullet/20111027 (http://d.hatena.ne.jp/bullet/20111027)

The FLASH tournament is already available.  Look for Youtuber "MrLARIATO".  He posts a lot of puroresu from Japanese TV; he used to have the "Bootaaay" account until GAORA got pissy with uploading their stuff, including OZ Academy).

It should also be available for download at the usual places online.

It's on Youtube (MrLARIATO) and the attendance looks legit.  It was great seeing the floor area filled with people in chairs, not rows and rows of empty folding chairs or the set-up where they don't even bother setting up the folding chairs or the wooden bleachers.

I saw that too, and the reason why there are so many people that watched the show probably because it involves 7 promotions and a healthy mix of veterans and up and coming joshi superstars.

Kagetsu will go further than Hiren. She is probably the best talent Meiko has found for Sendai.

Post by: twisted on November 01, 2011, 10:39:08 AM
I loved how every promotion seemed to look so involved in the whole tournament, bringing a lot of heat and a very strong "team spirit". that made each match very intense...
I also like how veterans behaved very unselfishly giving the spotlight to the younger generation. the strongest impression came from Yoshiko -and the whole stardom team, who has proved to be much more than a bunch of weak idols- Natsuki Taiyo (her speed always leaves me breathless- and from the way every single wrestler contributed to the success of ther show : they all seemed to be there to prove that joshi puroresu is not dead !

Meiko Satomura finally officially announced in her blog that she suffered a fracture to her fibula during the FLASH tournament.  This is the reason that she will not wrestle at Chikara's Joshimania this weekend, although she will still appear for fans and run the seminar/tryout for aspiring female wrestlers.  The injury has also scrubbed a match she was supposed to have with Kaori Yoneyama before her retirement.

She says she'll be ready to return on Xmas day at the Ice Ribbon Korakuen Hall show.  If so, it will be Meiko & Sendai Sachiko against Emi Sakura & X for the International Ribbon tag titles.

I know I haven't posted here in forever.  I'm glad others are updating results and schedules, as I lost the time and interest to keep up.

I wasn't there but the Sendai Girls spent a few days in New York City.  Of course, the reason they were in the US was to wrestle a couple of CHIKARA shows.  I won't spoil results here, but the match-ups were Meiko Satomura & Kagetsu vs DASH Chisako and Sendai Sachiko on Saturday 5/19 in Easton, PA, and then Kagetsu vs Saturyne, Chisako & Sachiko vs The Bravado Brothers, and Meiko vs Sara Del Ray on Sunday 5/20 in Manhattan.  That last match was a make-up for Joshimania since Satomura was injured.  I suspect that was a fairly good match  *approve

It looks like from their blogs and twitter feeds that they spent a few extra days in NYC.  Meiko seems to have gone to Evita, to the gym with Itsuki Yamazaki, and to Itsuki's restaurant.  The sisters seem to have made friends with a lot of the guys, especially Green Ant and the Bravado Brothers.  I think Chisako likes beer  *approve

Some links to their blogs & twitter feeds; both Chisako and Sachiko have recently changed their Twitter names to stuff you'll actually remember.  As far as I know, Kagetsu doesn't have a Twitter.

The best news is that they are back home and didn't get themselves arrested for drug smuggling like NOSAWA and Io Shirai  *gloom

They also have a house show on 6/24, their final Zepp Sendai show on 6/25 (that venue is being closed down), and two more local house shows in July.
Title: Re: SENDAI
Post by: Isole75 on June 14, 2012, 06:09:23 AM
Zepp Sendai closing down? That sucks for Sendai Girls, it was their main venue since 2006. I always liked that place more than ShinjukuFACE and IMP Hall, which are basicly the Tokyo and Osaka equivalents of Zepp Sendai if you look at their capacity.

I wonder why Meiko continues Sendai girls, there is no economy left in Sendai, Zepp Sendai closing down, Hiren and Ryo left. They are reduced to Daijo status basicly, who also do 3-4 shows a year only. If only the remains of Sendai Girls would merge into Oz or Wave.
Title: Re: SENDAI
Post by: 孤星 on June 14, 2012, 06:33:39 AM
OZ most likely doesn't have the room (and never really seemed to have the room or be set up as a promotion that was ever meant to house so many rookies). They rarely worked with OZ except for loaning wrestlers for opening matches to squash Nao. Meiko was in OZ a handful of times to work with Sonoko and Chikayo at special events. There's not really much of a connection there.

That leaves WAVE which is really a modge podge of every other promotion. That could work.. .
 
I guess she continues because there isn't really anything else to do? I mean, for all we know their could be many, many reasons for not merging with other companies etc., financially and personally.

And SENDAI is her home, I don't think she'd ever leave especially now with all the hardships.
SENDAI girls will probably dissolve in the future and most of the remaining wrestlers will probably retire. And if they don't want to carry on with wrestling after SENDAI then maybe that would be best. That's purely hypothetical but it's more likely than SENDAI merging with another promotion.
Title: Re: SENDAI

They stuck it out this long so I don't see any of them retiring when SENDAI finally dies.
Title: Re: SENDAI
Post by: Isole75 on June 14, 2012, 01:43:59 PM
Or they can just move to JWP, the Sachiko sisters and Kagetsu would fit in perfectly with the current crop of JWP rookies.
Title: Re: SENDAI
Post by: 孤星 on June 14, 2012, 06:46:53 PM
Again, I think that if it were possible it would have already happened and if it does happen it'd be interesting to see what Meiko's role would be then. In my original, I mentioned JWP as a possibility but deleted it because I thought it was presumptive; we don't know what goes on behind closed doors.

Unfortunately, it appears that Satomura's blog entry has a typo, as our Sendai blogger Nobumichinoku was at the event and Kagetsu lost to Toyota; it was also Kagetsu's 20th birthday.  However, the sisters did win and they've actually been on a roll this year (they pinned Ray/Leon and Miz/Shimono earlier this year, although Meiko/Kandori was too much) and face Toyota and Kyoko Inoue in the main event of the final Zepp Sendai show later today.

Yeah, I thought the same thing as I just couldn't believe that Toyota would job to her own move.  Kagetsu gets to use Satomura's finisher, but not Manami's.

I don't have any results for today's show (the final Zepp Sendai show) yet but it was announced that Senjo is gonna run Sendai Sun Plaza (the bigger venue that they used for the debut show and the 1st anniversary) on December 15th.  They'll need to put together a lot of big name types for that card.

Yeah, I think the story was that a black bear had been spotted near the venue and Lady Destroyer was ready.

Here's Sunday's results.

**CHIKARA KING OF TRIOS SPOILERS****

I'm not there, but the twitter has been singing the praises of both the Sendai Girls and Team JWP.   Some photos of Team Sendai:

Meiko found the gym

Sachiko found a big salad

http://twitpic.com/aux5kj (http://twitpic.com/aux5kj)

Chisako found a party.  I think Jolly Roger has a crush on her  *Oni*

(https://pbs.twimg.com/media/A25LqoQCYAEMrSN.jpg)

Results:

Day 1:
Team Sendai Girls (Meiko Satomura, DASH Chisako, Sendai Sachiko) defeated The Colony (Fire Ant, Green Ant, assailANT) when Chisako used a Hormone Splash on Green Ant.
Team JWP (Command Bolshoi, Tsubasa Kuragaki, Kaori Yoneyama) defeated The Throwbacks (Dasher Hatfield, Mr. Touchdown, Matt Classic) when Kuragaki made Classic submit with a Torture Rack.
Mike Quackenbush, Manami Toyota, & Jigsaw defeated The Swarm (combatANT, deviANT, Soldier Ant) when Toyota used a Moonsault on deviANT.

Day 2:
F.I.S.T. (Chuck Taylor, Johnny Gargano, Icarus) defeated Team JWP when Taylor used a Half Boston Crab on Yoneyama.
Team Sendai Girls defeated Mike Quackenbush, Manami Toyota, & Jigsaw when Satomura used a Death Valley Driver on Quackenbush.

Team Sendai Girls makes the semifinals, along with F.I.S.T., Team ROH, and the Spectral Envoy.  I don't know which team they'll face yet.

I wonder how JWP & Toyota will get used on Day 3.  I'm hoping for Yone-hawntess teaming with Tatanka in the gauntlet!  Also, Kuragaki putting the entire Chikarmy into a Torture Rack and Bolshoi showing off how cut she is.

I thought Senjo was first round fodder so making it this far is pretty awesome.  The #kot12 tagged stuff on Twitter is raving about the Sendai Girls and it sounds like the Chikara faithful hate the Young Bucks.

Well yeah I get what they're going for. Either Envoy's going to get the gutsy "thank you" win for UMB and Hallowicked or more likely ROH is getting the win to further build heat for the Bucks and to make people want to see them lose the belts even more so I wasn't expectcing Sendai to win. Would've been nice to give them a longer match though given that they've been tearing it up all weekend however.

I'm guessing Sendai comes back sooner rather than later however since I'm guessing they really enjoy being there (I doubt they would've come back so soon otherwise) and the Chikara fans love them.

KoT is already available both for download and DVD over at Smart Mark if you want to see the Sendai crew apparently blow everyone away (and JWP and Toyota too). Really seeing twitters of wrestlers, fans, reports from people at the show, etc. all seem to near unanimously agree the Sendai crew were the standout wrestlers of the event.
Title: Re: SENDAI
Post by: Fanboy on September 20, 2012, 07:36:31 AM
Now that Senjo is home from CHIKARA (check the results thread for lots of photos), they've got a few shows coming up this month.

First will be a festival appearance this weekend.  It's the Shikoku Hoso Broadcasting Festival (on Shikoku Island, a long way from Sendai).  No matches announced for 9/23, but along with Meiko, Chisako, Sachiko, & Kagetsu will be Miyako Morino (aka Misaki Ohata), Eiger, and Aja Kong.

Next is 9/30 in Osaka, now with a full card.  Too bad the only time I get to see them in action anymore is in CHIKARA (I got KOT-highly recommended!).

Results from Meiko's blog.  Bad weather (typhoon) delayed the start of the show and probably hurt the attendance.  After the main event, Kagetsu challenged Aja and they will have a singles match next month at Sendai Girls' show at Hakata Star Lanes.  I don't recall Kagetsu using a Michinoku Driver as a finisher before.

Just got around to watching these, 4-5 mins of Aja vs Kagetsu in the 1st clip & 6 or so mins of Meiko/Toyota vs Amano/Ayako in the 2nd.

Kagetsu REALLY needs to learn how to fire up & hit harder cause Aja was just blasting her with shots & gave her a busted mouth & Kagetsu didn't give her much in return. Aja being Aja i'm sure she wouldn't have minded a reciept.

Main event looked really good with everyone in this match having no problem giving as good as they got :). Not a lot of Toyota shown, mostly just the Meiko vs Ayako section from the start and the last few mins with Meiko vs Amano.

I agree, I was disappointed with Kagetsu's striking, which was pretty wimpy for "Meiko Jr." in a match against Aja.  Aja won't break, and she's gonna blast you either way.

I hope Satomura made Kagetsu watch some old GAEA footage afterwards to see how to be the hyper young underdog babyface.

I wish these clips weren't edited so hard and that they'd show some DASH/Sachi action, but I think they are just intended as teasers to try to get people to attend the live shows.
Title: Re: SENDAI
Post by: Sabrina the Teenage Cracker on November 24, 2012, 05:06:38 PM
I was thinking the exact same thing. Kagetsu has so much going for her, but is still missing that one thing to make her matches.matches. You can't come out in a fancy ring robe and everything and try to give Aja the hapless shots. Either Meiko needs to give her a signature strike. Either kicks, slaps, knees or something. RIght now there's absolutely nothing connecting her movements throughout the match and all her strikes right now look like poop.
Title: Re: SENDAI
Post by: FLIK on November 25, 2012, 05:26:11 PM
Hoping the JWP show with Kagetsu/Haruyama will surface soon. Kagetsu looked much better in the tag with Meiko vs Haruyama & LEON whear she went over on Haruyama though that was more of a workrate match then a strike based one.
Title: Re: SENDAI
Post by: Sabrina the Teenage Cracker on November 25, 2012, 10:53:29 PM
Kagetsu's strikes can look good against smaller girls. She looked great against the tiny Micro and the ultra skinny Hikari Minami. But when anyone that comes near her size range is in the match, her nuts and bolts start coming loose.

Big attendance in Niigata!  Hopefully we'll get at least the Youtube digests in a few weeks.  Next month is a show at Sendai Sun Plaza (a building that can hold 2500-3000, I think, where they had the debut show several years ago).  The main event is Meiko & Aja vs Kagetsu & Yoshiko.  Hopefully Kagetsu steps it up against Aja.  I assume Yoshiko will be a disrespectful punk to Meiko & Aja.  That should be awesome.

Yeah, the way that Sendai's been booking their shows this year is basically Meiko & gang, Misaki Ohata as her cutesy babyface Senjo alter-ego, Sakura Hirota & Eiger for comedy, a bunch of older big names (Aja, Toyota, Ozaki, Kandori, Hamada) to stick on the poster, and rookies to do the jobs in the random tags.

This is DASH Chisako & Sendai Sachiko vs Mayumi Ozaki & Nana Kawasa.  Sachiko is a peppy cheerleader.  Mayumi hates that shit.  Watch Sachiko Ito prevent Ozaki from cheating for the first time EVAH!, and Nana takes a good ass-whupping from SisterSister.

http://youtu.be/2UOcXqBdrYk (http://youtu.be/2UOcXqBdrYk)

The beginning is about Kagetsu, including some footage from the Hakata Star Lanes match against Aja.  We see Kagetsu upset and storming off in the post-match interview, and then some interviews with her & Meiko.  Then it's clipped G-PANIC!, I mean S-PANIC! tag-team action with Satomura & Manami Toyota against Aja & Ayako Hamada, mostly Meiko & Ayako kicking & slapping each other.  Post-match, Kagetsu gets in the ring and mouths off to Meiko and then Aja, who tells Kagetsu how much she sucks.  Then Yoshiko from STARDOM shows up and gets in Aja's grill.  Aja doesn't know who she is.  LOLZ.  Aja & Meiko team up to announce that they will smack the taste out of Kagetsu & Yoshiko's mouths during the main event at the next show at Sendai Sun Plaza.

I had posted this in the wrong thread.  Oops.

Big attendance in Niigata!  Hopefully we'll get at least the Youtube digests in a few weeks.  Next month is a show at Sendai Sun Plaza (a building that can hold 2500-3000, I think, where they had the debut show several years ago).  The main event is Meiko & Aja vs Kagetsu & Yoshiko.  Hopefully Kagetsu steps it up against Aja.  I assume Yoshiko will be a disrespectful punk to Meiko & Aja.  That should be awesome.

I don't think so.  Meiko has never dropped a fall to any of her trainees, although I'm thinking there's a good shot that Kagetsu gets her big win over either Meiko or Aja this weekend.  Although it should be said that the Chisako/Sachiko team actually wins most of the time now when they aren't facing Satomura.  I'm thinking they will beat Leon & Kuragaki this weekend, but Leon will get her win back at the JWP show.

Nice crowd in Sendai at the "big" building--only the third time they've even run Sun Plaza.  Kagetsu still "hasn't earned the big one"; I guess she is gonna keep chasing Meiko & Aja. 

Hiren was at the show, just as a spectator.

Title: Re: SENDAI
Post by: Sabrina the Teenage Cracker on December 16, 2012, 04:20:47 PM
lolololollololol, ahh man, sendai girls. Then again, Kagetsu looked really non-good in her singles with Aja, so she technically really isn't ready just yet. Sendai GIrls continues to outdraw any other joshi but mainly because they have no competition and don't run super often. That and possible papering.
Title: Re: SENDAI
Post by: Eivion on December 16, 2012, 06:27:53 PM
Its because the actual Sendai area seemingly gives them a decent amount of support since it hasn't been tapped much for the joshi puroresu market. Its sort of annoying when you realize Sendai Girls could have easily been one of the bigger promotions in joshi if it was full size.
Title: Re: SENDAI
Post by: 孤星 on December 17, 2012, 12:40:26 PM
They weren't ready to win booking wise and just literal experience wise. If they can keep drawing good numbers there's no reason to blow if off immediately and end the angle by having the younglings triumph.

I know everyone's eager to have youngster ascend but it's for nothing if they're not ready.
Title: Re: SENDAI
Post by: Eivion on December 17, 2012, 02:37:25 PM
Kagetsu isn't ready, but Yoshiko could probably win the belt off of Nanae today and most would buy into it. That said, she is pretty damn young so she can wait. I wasn't really complaining about their not winning, just a tad disappointed as they are two favorites of mine at the moment.
Title: Re: SENDAI
Post by: 孤星 on December 18, 2012, 05:51:17 AM
As in "most would buy it" do you mean it would do good business? She's fairly limited in the ring and makes up for it with personality. Traditionally, that kind of wrestler in that kind of alignment never wins the belt, at least not for any period of time.
Title: Re: SENDAI
Post by: Eivion on December 18, 2012, 10:03:14 AM
She is the most over wrestler in Stardom. Don't really see how she is so limited either.
Title: Re: SENDAI
Post by: 孤星 on December 19, 2012, 04:51:22 AM
She's not a technical type she just shoves people around and hits people. She's a brawler. She's like either member of LCO except not even as well rounded as they turned out to be later on.

She can be over all she likes, usually that kind of wrestler doesn't win the top singles title especially not so soon.

Because usually if you're over you don't need the belt. Any other ideas about why belts exist is markism.
Title: Re: SENDAI
Post by: Sabrina the Teenage Cracker on December 19, 2012, 05:28:59 PM
What about damn commies?!

But she actually is pretty decently well rounded now. I mean Vamp has a point in that..Dump never won the WWWA TItle and neither did Devil until she turned face.

However, I think it would do the business well for her to grab the top prize. She's on TV and shows up on men's shows all the time because of her character. Holding the main title would only increase her visibility and STarDom's as a whole.
Title: Re: SENDAI
Post by: 孤星 on December 20, 2012, 09:48:21 AM
I don't think that would work. The title is only known within Stardom, within joshi. Her showing up on tv with the belt wouldn't increase the amount of curious people and the fact that she is that popular without it shows she won't need it. There's no point in those kinds of reigns because the reason for the existence of that type of wrestler is to give the babyfaces some insurmountable odd and to be an attraction at the same time. If she gets the title, especially so early it takes all the drama out of the possibilities. That's one reason it doesn't really happen like that in Japan or really anywhere else because some people are just better designed to chase.

There's a poster for the Sendai Girls shows on 2/15 and 4/12 from Miyagino Ward Bunka Center on the frontpage of their homepage at http://sendaigirls.jp (http://sendaigirls.jp), which is going to be their new regular home in Sendai since Zepp Sendai closed.  In addition to the usual suspects (Meiko, Kagetsu, sisters, Misaki OhataMiyako Morino), Sakura Hirota, Hailey Hatred, and Kelly Skater are on the poster.

They also have two shows scheduled for Osaka: 3/31 at Higashinari Ward Citizen Center and 5/19 at Matsushita IMP Hall.

I doubt any of this gets TV--hope they remember to post to the Youtube channel!

Partial card for the show on 2/15.  No Meiko match announced yet--my guess is she gets Kuragaki or Leon and gets a win since she jobbed to Haruyama at a recent JWP show.  Nothing announced for Kagetsu either--they'll probably have JWP bring a young girl for her to squash.

Also, it's not been officially announced but Chisako's twitter indicates that the sisters will be in the JWP tag league again this year.

I saw something that if I translated it correctly means that this is the first of a 7-match challenge series for Kagetsu.  Surely that means she's losing now, but will get the big win over Aja or Meiko in the 7th and final match. 

Kagetsu's booked to face Hiroyo in Sendai in April, along with Meiko vs Shuri.  Nothing else announced for that show yet.

Don't think i've ever seen a chellenge series go that way.
Most tend to end up with the youngster loosing every match and if not, only winning if they're facing mid lvl talent.

I legit would think Kagetsu would have a higher chance of winning if they weren't booking it as a series. Also think Aja would put her over before Meiko would.

Some incomplete cards for the next two shows.  Apparently a feud is brewing between Chisako & Mio based on last weekend's match (Mio hit Chisako with a chair, Mio challenges Chisako to a singles match, Chisako talks trash on Twitter).  Chisako also was tweeting about wanting to face KAORU--don't know if this means a comeback is in the near future or if that was just an idle comment.  We've got a couple of nice matches for Meiko, as well.  Hopefully we get more than the Occupation of the Joshi 10-second treatment.

Several shows have been announced, culminating with another day at Sendai Sun Plaza in November.  I'm thinking Kagetsu's final match of her 7 match trial run will be there, against either Meiko or Aja, and this would seem like the time to pull the trigger and have her finally get the huge singles win.  Most of these are places they've run before and further additions (probably more summer festivals) are possible.

Also, apparently DASH Chisako is obsessed enough with the JWP Tag Team titles that the header for her twitter account is of Haruyama & Kuragaki. 
Is this leading to a future re-match or just Chisako being a weirdo?

The June 12th show at Miyagino Ward Bunka Center is completely sold out and no tickets will be available at the door.  That's good, but it's a much smaller building than the now closed Zepp Sendai.  It would be nice if they could find something more that size, as Sun Plaza is too big to run more than once a year or so.  Alternatively, they could run shows more frequently, but they'd need to rebuild their ranks.  It's disappointing that no one has debuted from Senjo since Kagetsu, and that was 5 years ago.

Also, the Sept. 29th show will be held on Sado Island Aikawa Town Gymnasium.  Sado Island is off the coast from Niigata, where they are having a show on the 28th.

YoIVko's better than either them to be honest. Mayu & Act are going to be really good soon. Iroha, Yacht girl, showzuski, Kashima, and Eri are all making huge strides and show great potential. I know you hate the idea of STarDom, but Nanae's training these girls to be valkyries. Manami and Rabbit are better than anyone not named YoIVko, but STarDom's other trainees are still really good.

Definitely true. And I'd say Rabbito is a super rookie. Manami Katsu's not quite a super rookie but she's still really good in her own right. Sareee's finally showing signs of improvement. She had a really good match against haruyama on one of these jwp shows. Oz's rookie is out indefinitely though she never really got any good. WAVE has 2 rookies I think.One if fair and i'm prepared to write her off, but maybe she'll surprise me.

Hiroyo & Meiko will meet in singles on July 29th, and Chisako was yapping at Mio and they'll probably have another match soon.

SENDAI GIRLS 6/12/2013
Miyagino Ward Bunka Center (Sendai)
320 Fans


1. Miyako Morino defeated Sareee (6:50) with a Modified Boston Crab.
2. Sakura Hirota defeated Mio Shirai (6:51). (I think the finish involved that "Kancho" move Hirota uses where she jabs you in the butt with her fingers)
3. Carlos Amano & Hiroyo Matsumoto defeated Meiko Satomura & Syuri (14:36) when Matsumoto used a Liger Bomb on Satomura.
4. DASH Chisako & Sendai Sachiko defeated Manami Katsu & Reideen Hagane (15:49) when Chisako used the Hormone Splash on Hagane.
5. Ayumi Kurihara defeated Kagetsu (12:08) with a Modified Uranage.

Guess Meiko thought 2 upsets were too much. Oh well kagetsu can impress against akino.

I'm wonder if the Boston crab was that move she borrowed from Mschif.

Awesome that Hiroyo beat Meiko. I only wish she had a chance in hell of winning the singles match.

If Kagetsu gets a big win it will be the last match of her unofficial trial series.

Title: Re: SENDAI
Post by: Fanboy on July 25, 2013, 10:41:51 AM
For the July 29th show, Sakura Hirota will face Hamuko Hoshi.  Also, with FLIK reporting a possible injury to Sareee, there is a possibility that a last minute sub for her match against Sendai Sachiko will be needed.

I think the "stip" for Meiko/Kana is that they'll stiff the blank out of each other.
Title: Re: SENDAI
Post by: Fanboy on July 28, 2013, 03:35:35 AM
As mentioned on the DIANA page, Sareee suffered a minor injury in a WNC match and is replaced on tomorrow's show by Crazy Mary, who now faces Sendai Sachiko.

Also, more matches announced for the August show at Shinjuku FACE.  This is probably everything but the "Miyako Morino" (Misaki Ohata) match.

Very curious what they will run at Korakuen Hall.

Yeah, hopefully not another tournament.  Maybe Kagetsu can finally get a big singles win or Chisako/Sachiko can win some tag belts.

At the last Sendai show, it was announced that "Miyako Morino" (aka Misaki Ohata) is taking an indefinite leave of absence from Sendai Girls.  The ridiculous kayfabe reason is that Miyako is going to the Galapagos Islands to look for her identical triplet (the story is that Misaki, Miyako, and ? are identical triplets).

Meiko vs Kana should be even more interesting now that Kana is the JWP champ.

Oh, and some minor results:

So shy hasn't Meiko tried to get any more trainees for Sendai girls? It seems weird to have a promotion with only four active talents.

That's a good question I don't have a good answer for.  I know that Dorami Nagano, who worked for Ice Ribbon for a while and is still listed as "inactive" on the IR website, originally trained at Senjo but failed to debut and that a few others have washed out as well.  Not sure if it's Satomura being too tough (following the Chigusa Nagayo/GAEA model too closely) or if there is just hardly anyone that wants to train/live in Sendai rather than Tokyo or if they just aren't even recruiting anymore.  Not sure what Sendai is going to do if any of the four left get hurt or decide to retire.  Groups like Ice Ribbon, STARDOM and JWP still seem to have a fair number of trainees making debuts, though.

I think she's gonna beat Aja. It seems too coincidental. Wish the sendai sisters could have won their match, but oh well. Kana vs Meiko in a 20 minute draw sounds perfectection.
Title: Re: SENDAI
Post by: Fanboy on August 31, 2013, 08:02:09 AM
So Senjo's show at Korakuen Hall in October is going to feature a 7 vs 7 series of singles matches with a battle of generations.  Kagetsu had an interview just before this weekend's show (she just had her 5th anniversary in puroresu) and was mouthing off about how veterans need to "retire", so she's going to lead NOVA, which will have Saree, Hikaru Shida, Yuhi, and has added Yoshiko, Takuhi Iroha, and Manami Katsu.  The veterans "Mainstays" or "Stalwarts" team is going to be Meiko, Aja, Toyota, Dynamite, and 3 others to be announced.  I bet Nanae Takahashi will be one (with several STARDOM youngsters on the team) and I could see people like Bolshoi and Kyoko Inoue as well.

I guess the sisters will do something else that day--they are too old to be young and too young to be old.

If this sounds familiar, it's GAEA booking circa fall of 2000.  Remember, Nanae, Bolshoi, and Inoue are just guesses on my part.

Fantasy booking:
Takumi Iroha vs Dynamite Kansai
Yuhi vs Command Bolshoi
Manami Katsu vs Manami Toyota
Sareee vs Nanae Takahashi
Hikaru Shida vs Kyoko Inoue
Yoshiko vs Meiko Satomura
Kagetsu vs Aja Kong

with bonus Sakura Hirota vs Jaguar Yokota comedy match and sisters vs Hanako/Morii if Morii's wrist heals in time.

Yeah, I still remember at the time that getting one of the more amusing reactions from the online fanbase. The GAEA youngsters swept the  vetrans 5 to 0 and everyone went YAY then the vets all got their wins back a few days later and everyone lost their shit over it.

But the goal was always to put the younger stars on the same lvl as the established ones NOT have them over take them and GAEA did a good job of that in the end.

Can't see this Sendai series going quite as well. I'm guessing 2 wins for team NOVA, maybe 3 at best.

Heck, with that potential lineup I couldn't see anyone but Kagetsu winning. With another famous Meiko draw underneath :)

Yeah, plus they've beaten a # of vets allready so it wouldn't have the same meaning.

Anyways, re SENDAI not training any more rookies, it seems that Meiko's plan is to borrow another page from GAEA and just fill out the roster with regular recruits from other promotions to make up for it.
Title: Re: SENDAI
Post by: Fanboy on August 31, 2013, 10:28:29 AM
Yeah, we aren't going to get a youngster sweep by any means.  Remember, in 2000 GAEA Meiko/Sugar/Chikayo/Sonoko/Toshie were all 5 year vets at that point, and only Kagetsu and Shida have that level of experience in the NOVA group.  I think Kagetsu, who is 21, is the second oldest in the NOVA group after Shida.

Senjo's still advertising for trainees, for whatever that is worth. 
Title: Re: SENDAI
Post by: Eivion on August 31, 2013, 10:31:58 AM
I actually hope Yoshiko is the one who matches up with Aja. I loved their interactions last December in that tag with Kagetsu and Meiko.

Its good to hear Sendai is at least trying to get trainees.
Title: Re: SENDAI
Post by: Fanboy on August 31, 2013, 12:45:38 PM
Shida's 25--a couple of months older than Chisako and about a year and a half older than Sachiko, so I guess saying the sisters were too old isn't quite true. 

I wouldn't mind Aja vs Yoshiko either, although I think I'd really dig a Yoshiko-Meiko singles based on utterly disrespectful Yoshiko has been to Satomura in their interactions.  I'm expecting Aja/Kagetsu though, with Meiko/Kagetsu at the year-end show at Sendai Sun Plaza.
Title: Re: SENDAI
Post by: Eivion on August 31, 2013, 03:07:15 PM
That is the thing though Yoshiko can already match up to Meiko quite well. I loved how Yoshiko tried to pull that same shit with Aja only for Aja to kick her ass back down to kiddy table.
Title: Re: SENDAI
Post by: Sabrina the Teenage Cracker on August 31, 2013, 03:51:22 PM

More details on the October 17th show at Korakuen Hall.  NOVA vs Stalwarts/Mainstays is now 8 vs 8 and I think it's going to be an elimination match with a 10 minute time limit per match, with Shuri being added to the youngsters group and Kyoko Inoue/Command Bolshoi/Takako Inoue to the veterans.  Still one more unannounced veteran--I think it'll be Nanae Takahashi.

Currently we have:
NOVA-Kagetsu, Hikaru Shida (Ice Ribbon), Shuri (WNC), Yoshiko (STARDOM), Takumi Iroha (STARDOM), Yuhi (ZERO-1), Manami Katsu (JWP), Sareee (DIANA)
Stalwarts-Meiko Satomura, Aja Kong (OZ), Dynamite Kansai (OZ), Manami Toyota (freelance), Command Bolshoi (JWP), Kyoko Inoue (DIANA), Takako Inoue (LLPW-X), ????

You are right in that Yuhi's essentially STARDOM talent-I just listed by official affliation.  Yuhi does/did train in Z1 although she barely works there anymore (only 2 or 3 times all year) since they don't have any other women on the roster.

She wrestled at least five matches for Z1 in 2012 (her first year in the business) and in 2013 has wrestled at least another five. I say at least 'cause there might be some small shows that we've never gotten results for.

But yes, she is still officially affiliated with Zero1 (or Norainu Dojo to be specific).

Results from Day 1 of the Shikoku festival.  I guess scheduling Kagetsu vs Amano two straight days makes sense now with having a draw on day 1.  Tomorrow we get the same crew except Aja replaces Hiroyo.  Nice Zubaz, Sonoko!

This is the card for the house show on Sado Island (off the coast of Niigata) the day after the Niigata show.  Aya Yuki's brought in, with Mio, Shuri, and Yuhi not working this card.  Me thinks Aya's there to job, since there's a 0% chance Kandori will ever drop a fall.  Kagetsu vs Amano is a match they ran on both of the recent festival shows in Shikoku, and Sakura vs Eiger is a staple comedy match that Senjo constantly books.  I wouldn't be surprised if Hirota gets involved in the battle royale; she was pretty successful in them in the GAEA days.

One correction to the Niigata results--Shuri injured her back in training and did not make the trip.  Manami Katsu was her replacement.

Results for the Sado Island show--I made a mistake and Sakura Hirota was not on the card.  Instead, Sendai Sachiko pulled triple duty, with comedy match/tag match/battle royale activity!

So Chigusa at the Senjo dojo w/Kagetsu made the latest issue of the weekly puroresu magazine.

(http://www.sendaigirls.jp/blog/satomura/img/1380837943IMG_7172.jpg)

I'm predicting right now that the mystery member of the "Stalwarts" (old ladies) will be Chiggy.  That would be more interesting than someone like Ozaki/GAMI/Hotta/etc. 

Satomura blogged about how the average age of NOVA is 20 (from Sareee at 17 to Shida at 25, with Kagetsu at 21) and of the Stalwarts is 42 (from Meiko's 33 to Kyoko Inoue's 44 (with Bolshoi's age "unknown" and one member not announced.

I predict Nanae's the 8th member

BTW Meiko now teaming with a bunch of the women she faced a decade+ ago (who were all in Meiko's current age range at the time) when GAEA ran this angle is pretty funny.

I hope at some point Aja or someone else gave Meiko the "one day you'll be old too and know how we feel" speach.

So on the Sendai Girls homepage http://sendaigirls.jp/ (http://sendaigirls.jp/) there's an interview with Chigusa Nagayo posted.  I'm having trouble getting a decent translation (you Japanese readers could help!), but it sounds like Kagetsu's yapping about "veterans needing to retire" and that she invited Chigusa to the show, even buying her a front row ticket.  I can't make out the gist of the interview, so I can't tell if Nagayo's on the side of the youngsters and agrees with Kagetsu or if she thinks Kagetsu's a mouthy kid that needs to wait her turn.

Here are some rough results, will smooth out later. Thanks to @dashpassion and http://kakutolog.cocolog-nifty.com/kakuto/2013/10/14-1173.html  (http://kakutolog.cocolog-nifty.com/kakuto/2013/10/14-1173.html)and http://ameblo.jp/4649007/entry-11641029539.html (http://ameblo.jp/4649007/entry-11641029539.html) and http://battle-news.com/battle/2013/10/001997.php (http://battle-news.com/battle/2013/10/001997.php)

So Dump was the surprise and they had her with Takumi Iroha, the Chigusa wannabe, with the real Chigusa involved on a verbal level.

I knew Kyoko was only getting eliminated by time-out.

WTF with the Yuhi push?  Did ZERO1 and/or Rossy Ogawa write Satomura a big check?

Kagetsu finally beats Aja, then loses to Meiko, and then it's YOSHIKO who gets the honor of being the first of the new generation to pin Satomura.  Apparently Satomura had a crazy tantrum post-match.

Good for Yuhi. She's got all the potential in the world and being afforded these opportunities will only help her improve IMO. I'm more sad that Manami beat Manami after beating Shida. But oh well. Show looks super fun.
Title: Re: SENDAI
Post by: Eivion on October 17, 2013, 07:25:32 AM
I'm fine with Yoshiko beating Satomura, especially since Kagetsu got to beat a more or less fresh Aja. I think out of NOVA, Yoshiko and Kagetsu were the ones who deserved the biggest wins so I'm mostly pleased with the results. I do so hope Satomura going crazy post match means we are getting her vs. Yoshiko in a more proper singles before the year is out. Actually I would love see Meiko make it her mission to destroy all of NOVA in singles before Kagetsu finally puts her down.

I'm with others the Yuhi push is bullshit. She isn't that good yet w/o a vet to lead/carry her and giving her too much too early won't help her so much as likely give her a big head (the girl who currently takes her anger over her own botched spots on other rookies). Her wins really should have gone to either Shida or Shuri.
Title: Re: SENDAI
Post by: Fanboy on October 17, 2013, 07:39:15 AM
I like Yuhi more than you, but one victory would have been sufficient.  Shida and/or Shuri could have taken those falls.  I was pleasantly surprised that the time-out was only used once--I was frankly expecting a couple other vets to avoid losses via the time limit.

My guess is that we'll have Meiko vs Yoshiko at either the next STARDOM Korakuen Hall show or at the year-end show at Sendai Sun Plaza and that she'll certainly get her job back.

It is probably more interesting to have Yoshiko get the final fall over Meiko, as if Kagetsu gets it, then Satomura's not too upset and probably proud that Kagetsu finally got there.  But Yoshiko's a disrespectful punk that Meiko hates, and it's embarassing for her to lose it for the veterans in that way.

Title: Re: SENDAI
Post by: Eivion on October 17, 2013, 08:15:17 AM
I don't actually dislike Yuhi, I just don't think she is that good yet and didn't deserve more than one win here.

I think Kagetsu getting the big win over Meiko is more whats needed for Kagestu to move on to the next stage. Whats more unless Satomura invades Stardom for revenge I don't think a Yoshiko victory would lead anything interesting as Stardom is focused on Io at the moment.
Title: Re: SENDAI
Post by: Dexx on October 17, 2013, 08:46:48 PM
Regardless if Yuhi isn't on the level that deserves this type of booking right now, it's clear that a great vet like Meiko sees a lot iof potential n her.  I just hope Yuhi has the work ethic to work on some of her weaknesses so she can end up being as good as someone with her natural talents should be .

Yeah, I got the same from Meiko's blog.  I'm not surprised--they wouldn't have got Chiggy out for her first appearance since the Devil Masami retirement show 5 years ago if they weren't gonna put it on TV.

Today's free show at a hospital/nursing home in Sendai was outside in driving rain.  Sounds like they only did 2 matches instead of the scheduled 3.  The link below has photos of Meiko vs young Manami; you can see how wet they are getting.  Don't know what the other match was or its result yet.

Interesting set of results from Osaka today.  Satomura loses to both Ayako and then to Kagetsu in an impromptu NOVA vs Stalwarts tag match.  Meiko disputes in her blog that she tapped out.  I'm a bit surprised they picked this show for Kagetsu to pick up a win over Satomura, although it is Kagetsu's hometown.  This also seems to signal to me that Satomura's probably winning in Sendai Sun Plaza and Kagetsu's journey for the singles win will continue. 

My understanding is that the Kagetsu-Yoshiko match from the recent Sendai show was or will be shown on a puroresu show on Samurai!, along with footage of Kagetsu's private training with Chigusa Nagayo.

As far as the sisters, a loss today, but to Aja.  They are competing in both the STARDOM and JWP tag tournaments--maybe they'll hold some tag gold before the year is done?

No new matches announced yet, but the participants are known.  I wonder if we'll see a Chisako/Sachiko vs Natsuki/Yoshiko rematch from a match those teams will be having in the STARDOM tag tournament this weekend?

Also, the Japanese rock band "Color bottle" will be appearing--I think they are from Sendai.

Except its not relevant. The comments you're complaining about were from two weeks ago with people having already moved on. You decided to act like an ass and bring it up in another topic to create a bs argument you tried to make after completely misreading commentary between me and another member. It honestly doesn't even matter to me anymore as I'm tired of you're baiting me.

More matches announced.  I'm guessing they will wait until the STARDOM show this weekend (that has a Goddesses of STARDOM tournament match between the Sendai sisters & Natsuki/Yoshiko) before announcing their match.  I'm guessing a rematch between those teams or maybe a trios with Hiroyo & somebody added in.

The Japanese rock band "Color bottle" will be appearing--I think they are from Sendai. 

My understanding is that the Korakuen Hall show is being televised on Samurai this weekend.  With some luck, it'll be on DailyMotion or YouTube soon.

A drop of 500 in attendance from last year's Sun Plaza show is worrisome, although still a big crowd by current standards.  Pretty standard set of results--I knew that the sisters would get the win over the STARDOM duo this time.  Biggest surprise to me was that Aja and not Toyota got the pinfall on Yuhi.

Also, Chigusa Nagayo came down to the ring after the main event, but I don't know what was said yet.

I think the drop in numbers was mostly that the results were so obvious in the sisters tag and the main event. Give Sachiko and Dash a bigger team that  they haven't faced and have Meiko vs Kagetsu again next year and I think it'll be a much bigger number.

Eventually Kagetsu needs a cleaner victory over a senior than "I spat in Aja's face and rolled her up in an elimination match" or "I got Meiko in an armbar in an impromptu tag match and Meiko insists she never tapped".

Results from http://sendaigirls.jp (http://sendaigirls.jp) .  If I got a good translation, it sounds like Iroha wants to fight Kagetsu in a singles match rather than tagging with her at Chigusa's show in March.  Also, Chisako wants to face off against the Kuragaki/Haruyama team, which might be difficult with Kuragaki no longer in JWP.

So Meiko Satomura has traveled to Thailand several times over the years for Muay Thai training, and this time she brought the rest of the Senjo gang with her.  I believe it's the first visit for Chisako, Sachiko, & Kagetsu.  I wonder if any of them will end up incorporating more kicks in her offense; it's always been a bit surprising that none of Meiko's trainees have ever been a big-time kicker.

The card for the next show is up.  Some other promotions will be having shows in Sendai; Ice Ribbon is holding "Sendai Ribbon" on 2/15 (at the same Miyagino Ward Bunka Center venue Senjo uses.  ZERO1 has a show on 2/15 as well at the same venue with Chisako & Sachiko already announced as appearing.  I'd guess they'll match up against a team like Mio Shirai & random Ice Ribbon wrestler.  Then in April we have OZ Academy at Sendai Rensa on 4/27.

There's going to be a final Passion Red show and the main event is Meiko & X vs Nanae & Natsuki.  I know who I want X to be, but I don't think it will happen.

Kagetsu continues to lose the big matches.  Chisako's been mouthing off about challenging Arisa for the JWP title.  I like Chisako a lot, but it's hard to see her as a credible singles challenger and if she does get a shot, it'll be an easy defense for Arisa.

Also from the photos the show look liked it drew terribly, though the shots from the Satomura vs. Shida match look great.

Also a weird situation where WAVE was running in Sendai and Sendai Girls was running Osaka...

I'm quite suprised that Chisako Hardy got a draw against Kana, even though I'm a fan.  Announced for the show in Sendai on May 29th is Kagetsu vs Kyoko Kimura.  I think the 2nd match also involved Hirota, but I'm not really sure.  Didn't seem to be the "Winner of Match #1" like I had gotten prior to the show.

Yeah, it is kind of weird to have the WAVE/Daijo crew in Sendai and Senjo in Osaka.    I think the Sendai superfan Nobu Michinoku who blogs lots of Sendai Girls photos liked it, as he went to the WAVE show, and WAVE's going back to Sendai in December.

Also a weird situation where WAVE was running in Sendai and Sendai Girls was running Osaka...

So because they've named themselves after cities, they can't do shows in other places?

I don't get why this is weird.

(Honest question, not something to start a stupid internet thread war).

Title: Re: SENDAI
Post by: Fanboy on September 08, 2014, 11:54:24 AM
Google the Trainee with her Kanjis.

I did so and if I'm piecing it together, Tomoko Miyagi is/was a university student (Kyushu Sangyo University) from Fukuoka that joined the indy student fed called KWF at her university and debuted in 2013, first under her real (?) name and then as "Tomahawk MM".  It seems that she was the only female wrestler at KWF and I think all of her matches so far have been against guys.  She's 21 (born June 16, 1993), so just one year younger than Kagetsu.  I have no idea how she hooked up with Sendai Girls--whether she approached them or they approached her.

Here's her twitter: https://twitter.com/miyakasi0915 (https://twitter.com/miyakasi0915)

Here's the website for KWF: http://www.kyusan-u.ac.jp/J/kwf/ (http://www.kyusan-u.ac.jp/J/kwf/)

Her debut match from Nov. 2, 2013: http://youtu.be/4Z_cqQha5rs?list=UUp2wfjZNRhjugUJ_RBW9JJg (http://youtu.be/4Z_cqQha5rs?list=UUp2wfjZNRhjugUJ_RBW9JJg)

A more recent match (June 2014): http://youtu.be/rS8_oJKImGo (http://youtu.be/rS8_oJKImGo)

This photo from Satomura's blog is from a festival Sendai Girls worked in late August--Tomoko is next to Sendai Sachiko in the red t-shirt and white shorts.

News:  Still no announcement on when Sendai Sachiko will return to the ring.  Also, no official announcement as to when the trainee Tomoko Miyagi, who passed her protest, will debut.  I'll guess either at the next show in Sendai in October or maybe wait until November for the Hakata Star Lanes show, which is basically her hometown.

I'm not sure if I posted this tidbit previously, but Kagetsu is now living & training in Tokyo, but is still associated with Sendai Girls and working all Senjo shows.  She'll be the primary person doing publicity work in Tokyo & Osaka.

So Ryo Mizunami (formerly a member of Sendai Girls) paid a visit to the Sendai dojo, in preparation for her return to action at WAVE's Korakuen Hall show next month.  She brought WAVE rookie Hiroe Nagahama and Daijo's Rina Yamashita with her for a taste of Senjo training.  A few photos (none too great) on Meiko's and Chisako's twitter.

I noticed from WAVE's site that Nagahama is from Niigata, which is also Satomura's hometown, so I wouldn't be shocked if Meiko books her in the future.

Partial cards for the next two shows.  Also, Meiko Satomura will face Ayako Hamada in a singles match at WAVE's show in Sapporo in April. Hamada just won the Regina di WAVE singles title from Hikaru Shida and this will be a title match, conditional on Ayako retaining in a match in March against Mio Shirai.

Nice to see Meiko going for a belt. Its actually a little odd that the Kanari sisters match isn't for Stardom's tag belts. Now I'm wondering if Nanae and Kairi are retaining.
Title: Re: SENDAI

Oops, that show is at Shinjuku FACE, not Korakuen Hall, in March.

I'm guessing the sisters beat Nanae/Hojo and will get a title shot at a subsequent STARDOM show.

Would like to see Meiko vs Shida at the March show.

Updated cards.  I wanted Meiko-Shida at Shinjuku but Meiko-Kimura ain't bad either.  Also added shows at Miyagino Ward Culture Center on April 4th and May 23rd and a show at Niigata City Gymnasium on July 12th that will serve as Satomura's 20th anniversary (not the Sendai Sun Plaza show in October that I speculated would be the anniversary).

Unlike that STARDOM show, I don't think anything particularly noteworthy happened in this show.  Miyagi "won" the right to face Eiger in the comedy match in a raffle.  This was a "Sakura Hirota produce" match, but Sakura was in Osaka working the WAVE/Daijo shows.

Chisako & Sachiko were also announced as challenging Ray & Leon for the JWP/Daily Sports tag titles at JWP's Korakuen Hall show in April.  You might remember that the sisters had those titles and had to give them up after Sachiko's injury last year.  Would have been nice for the sisters to win at this show.  Also, I'm guessing there will be a Satomura-Kimura rematch at some point.

Catching up with Sendai Girls

They are back up to six members. They have Meiko Satomura (35) of course, and the Jumonji sisters, DASH Chisako (26) & Sendai Sachiko (25), who have been around since the beginning (nine years now!).   The sisters are a pretty highly rated tag team these days and are getting a JWP title shot against Leon & Ray in a few days.  Meiko has a World of STARDOM red belt rematch against Kairi Hojo after their time-limit draw recently (very good match). Chisako especially is working quite a bit outside Sendai--in JWP, Stardom, and is now working a gimmick in Michinoku Pro where she's aligned with the Brahman Brothers.

Michiko Miyagi debuted late last year.  She's a college graduate from Kyushu Sangyo University (graphic design), originally
from Yamaguchi. She is 22 years old, 167 cm, 65 kg (so the tallest Sendai girl ever).

Mika Iwata debuted at Satomura's big 20th anniversary show in Niigata a few weeks ago.  Iwata is from Fukuoka and is 19 years
old, 160 cm, 54 kg.  They must think highly of her as her first match was against Aja Kong!  She's pretty cute and was
described as "Sendai's first beauty wrestler".  Have we already forgotten about Hiren?

The sixth member hasn't debuted yet, but her name is Chihiro Hashimoto.  She's also a recent college graduate and has a
strong background in amateur freestyle wrestling. I don't know her exact age (probably early 20s) or size, but she's
very powerfully built.  Word is that she will debut at the Sendai Sun Plaza show in October.

Yes--Michiko's OK but not great.  I don't think she'll move past midcard.  I haven't seen Iwata yet but she's pretty and has a good look and if they used Aja for her debut they must think highly of her.  Hashimoto's built like a brick shithouse and has a legit amateur wrestling background.  They said they'd like to get up to 10 members.

I'll try to get around to a Sendai Girls update soon, but here's a picture as the Jumonjis win another pair of belts (beating Sareee & Meiko Tanaka for DIANA's belts), with a challenge for STARDOM's belts against Io & Mayu next week.  Maybe Sachiko's retirement road is gonna be winning all of the joshi tag belts to the point that the rookies will have to help them caarry them all.

Some more Sendai notes.

They are creating title belts, both to be introduced at the October 11th show at Sendai Sun Plaza.  Jinsei Shinzaki will serve as commissioner.  The decision match for the singles belt will be Meiko Satomura vs Ayako Hamada, while the tag belt is DASH Chisako/Sendai Sachiko vs X.  I would assume predictable results--can't see Meiko losing at her big Sendai anniversary show or the sisters while they are collecting tag titles during Sachiko's retirement road.

Also, Michiko Miyagi is changing her ring name to Cassandra Miyagi and is going to be a "heel".  There's a clip of a news conference announcing this, with Miyagi wearing silly facepaint and Meiko & the interviewer laughing at her, so I'm not sure if we are supposed to take Miyagi as a heel seriously.

The change with Miyagi is a little weird but ok I guess.

I'm a little surprised they are finally bringing in title belts. I always figured they would wait until they had a bigger roster.

Result of the weekend and the full card for the Sun Plaza show.  Hope Hirota cosplays as Meiko against Jinsei.  I think the deal with Miyagi is that she's going to work both as herself (face) and "Cassandra" (heel).

Mixed results for the sisters but I expect they will be the first Sendai tag champs, to add to their collection.  They've also made noise about challenging for the WAVE tag belts and will probably get another shot at STARDOM's in the tag team league.

Also expect Meiko to win the title.

Results from the Senjo-STARDOM show at Korakeun today.  The Sendai Girls vs STARDOM 6 vs 6 match ended up being under elimination rules, where you stayed in the ring after winning to face the next opponent.  Ten minute time-limit, where a draw eliminates both.  No time-limit when both teams were down to the last competitor.

Basically, Chihiro Hashimoto is getting pushed stronger than a rookie has in years.  She cuts through the STARDOM rookies like a knife through butter.  STARDOM had to use Io to get Chihiro out, then Io & Sachiko drew. Kairi vs Meiko then happened, also going to a draw, leaving STARDOM with just Mayu left, where she has to beat both Chisako & Miyagi.  Wins a tough match vs Chisako, which turns into a brawl afterwards.  Miyagi tries to use her kendo stick in the finals and fight dirty.  Iwatani gets the big win for STARDOM to set up her shot at the red belt against Meiko this weekend!

Yeah, you do have to ignore the fact that Senjo should always use Meiko as the anchor for the last match where she can't be taken out via the time-limit, but it teases Io-Sachiko for the white belt, builds up Mayu as a legit challenger for Meiko & the red belt, gives Miyagi a chance in the main event slot, and pushes Chihiro as someone already beyond the rookie level.

Senjo provided an early card offer match at Genichiro Tenryu's big retirement show at Sumo Hall.  I think this might have been the biggest crowd any of them ever wrestled in front of, unless that WCW Monday Nitro that Meiko worked against Toshie Uematsu had a bigger crowd.  I'm quite confident Chisako, Sachiko, and Cassandra have never worked a show this big.

My Senjo update, courtesy of sendaigirls.jp and ameblo.jp/ringstars

The aftermath of the Hakata main event saw (if my online translator is right) both Aja & Chihiro challenging Meiko for the Senjo belt, with Aja & Meiko annoyed at the impertinence of a rookie like Hashimoto issuing such a challenge.  I could see a Meiko vs Aja defense, with Meiko retaining, or maybe they give Chihiro a shot and teach her a lesson, as she's run roughshold over other rookies, with her only career loss so far being against Io Shirai at the Sendai vs STARDOM show.

Jumonji Shimai (Chisako & Sachiko) also worked a match in JWP, where they switched sides and it was Chisako & Arisa Nakajima vs Sachiko & Tsukasa Fujimoto.  It went to a draw and the sisters will defend their JWP & Daily Sports tag titles on 12/27 at JWP's year-end Korakuen Hall show against Nakajima/Fujimoto, the "Best Friends" tag team.  This looks like a likely moment for them to drop the titles back to JWP.

No announcement yet on what the card will be for Sachiko's retirement show in January.  Word is the show is already sold out.  The problem is that Miyagino Cultural Ward Center is too small a venue but Sendai Sun Plaza is too large for such a show.  Zepp Sendai was the right size, but that venue no longer exists.

Future shows http://sendaigirls.jp/schedule/ (http://sendaigirls.jp/schedule/)

As I would have predicted, Aja beats Chihiro and will be Meiko's first defense of the Senjo singles title, to take place at Korakuen in April. I think Meiko will retain and they'll build to a big defense at Sun Plaza in October.

I think Jumonji Shimai will defend the Senjo tag belts and Sachiko will retire with them.  I could see a one-day tournamenet at a future show to crown new champs.

I will fantasy book the final three of battle royale to be Meiko, Chisako, Sachiko.  Sisters team up to beat Meiko and then it's sister against sister for the final moments of Sachiko's career, with older sister getting the pin.

Sachiko & Kimura have a strong relationship that was forged when Sachiko went on an expedition to Okinawa in 2011 when Kimura worked for Okinawa Pro.  This covered the time immediately after the earthquake/tsunami disaster, as Sachiko was in Okinawa when it happened.  Chisako ended up living and working with JWP at that time.

Iwata's gonna be the kicker.  I always wondered why Satomura didn't have a trainee that was a kicker.

Nerd villain--even if she's got a ways to go in the ring, I love the commitment to the character.  Feels kind of Uematsu-esque.

Chihiro bites off more than she can chew today.  Aja's no rookie.

Results of Sendai Sachiko's retirement show.  They seem to be teasing more stuff with Mizunami & Ohata in Sendai, particulary between Miz & Meiko.  The sisters retained the tag titles, as I expected, which they will now vacate.  The final battle royale, from Twitter pictures, looks like everyone ganged up on Meiko for the early elimination.  She wasn't listed in the Sendai homepage official results, but Hiren made a special appearance as a second and got in the ring to give Sachiko a boot to the face.  Of course, it ended with Jumonji Shimai against each other.

Would be nice to see Miz come home and take the belt away from Meiko. At the very least her & Ohata as challengers would be fun.

Some partial cards ; a bit surprised the Meiko-Shuri singles is happening as soon as March.  I expect a draw or a Shuri win to set up a title match later in the year, maybe at Sendai Sun Plaza this coming fall.  I'm assuming Meiko will retain the Senjo title over Aja.

Full card for Osaka.  Also, I heard that Syuri is leaving REINA and will concentrate mainly on MMA, so the March match-up with Meiko is probably the last of the mini-feud.

That is a shame. I was hoping Syuri might challenge for the belt.
