Definitely my tied for my favorite wrestler(male or female) has given the world some of the best  matches regardless of gender. She can fly with the best of them but also had amazing and unorthodox submissions and suplexes.

Some of her best matches include

Manami Toyota vs Kyoko Inoue(60 minute time limit draw for WWWA title) (http://www.veoh.com/videos/v1041393E8KJtafH)
Manami Toyota vs Toshiyo Yamada(Hair vs Hair) (http://www.veoh.com/videos/e161426seTCc8Hz)
Manami Toyta vs Aja Kong V*Top Tournament (http://www.veoh.com/videos/v228126KgF5Xx8b)
Manami Toyota & Toshiyo Yamada vs Dynamite Kansai & Mayumi Ozaki 2/3 Falls Dream Rush(WWWA tag team titles) (http://www.veoh.com/videos/v795057WfGRhqNN)
Manami Toyota & Toshiyo Yamada vs Dynamite Kansai & Mayumi Ozaki 2/3 Falls Dream Slam II(WWWA tag team titles) (http://www.veoh.com/videos/v795117xAn9BGcZ)
Manami Toyota vs Akira Hokuto(Destiny)Clipped (http://www.veoh.com/videos/e163652QQfNdKs4)

Was manami the first who introduced that roll or did she borrow the move from somebody else? at least on joshi I haven't seen anyone doing it before Toyota.

Toyota roll up's there now

Btw, it might just be me, but after watching the thunder queens battle it seems like Hikari Fukuoka wrestles a lot like manami toyota, she even does the toyota roll.

I love Manami shes my fav & Hokuto. Yes Hikari Fukuoka is very reminicent of Manami, What happened to Hikari I love her in the JWP tapes I have there all between 93 & 95 though (When did she retire) I love her 21st century Moonsault. Check out JWP TV: Oct-Nov 1993 Vol I I got it from PunQ it has Manami vs Fukuoka, Momoe Nakanishi reminds me of Manami too, probably because I don't understand how either of them take the impact those 2 take.
Much love to Manami
How do you reckon her neck felt after the last 2 moves at Dream Slam 2 !!??
Also you know how she leaps to the top rope with a full run & no hands....... has anybody else ever managed such a feat, Ive seen loads of springboards Mike Awesome & Ohtanis being my favs but never one like the fearless Manami
Best Wishes Pete

Manami Toyota is an awsome wrestler, even now shes past her best.In her prime she was perhaps in the top 5 wrestlers in the world (Both male and female).I really enjoyed her matches with Aja Kong the most.
Title: Re: Manami Toyota
Post by: thatdude21601 on October 08, 2007, 12:32:42 PM
I think we talked about it on the old forum, but she probably has the most sturdy body in pro-wrestling considering the level of bumping she did on a consistant basis (and remained nearly injury free). Most other reckless/insane people in wrestling don't last so long with knees and backs intact.
Title: Re: Manami Toyota
Post by: Sakebito_ONI on October 08, 2007, 03:54:29 PM
I think by this point in time, she's probably only being held together by her gear and force of will considering all of the sick bumps she's taken...either that or she's a human rubber band...
Title: Re: Manami Toyota
Post by: Sabrina the Teenage Cracker on October 08, 2007, 05:15:03 PM
Yeah, twice she's hit the mat with her head doing a quebrada to the outside, just in the toyota/yamada vs kansai/ozaki trilogy. I can't remember the exact spot in the 3rd match but at dreamslam II when she did that one from the second rope on the inside doing the quebrada to the outside(Has anyone else done that) her face smacks right into the mat. She must me made of rubber or something. Maybe it was how skinny she was, I dunno. Can she still do the no hands planchas?

Post by: Her Majesty Queen Kori I on October 08, 2007, 10:01:42 PM
I know AKINO once did a Tope Con Hilo to THE Ayako back in ARSION.  Ayako didn't catch her right and she landed full throttle on the back of her head on the mat.  Mari Apache got pretty involved at that point and took the brunt of one of Ayako's quebrada's for AKINO to keep the match going. 

One of the few times I've seen AKINO get that "Hi, my name is Ayumi Kurihara and I've just been knocked silly so I'm going to try and fall over again." look in her eyes.

TAMURA!

and yes, Toyota is very...legendary. Heh 

I dunno, but I always hated, HATED when the Toyota Roll and Kyoko's big swing would come up. Sure they got a big reaction, but not my cup o' tea.


Title: Re: Manami Toyota
Post by: Sabrina the Teenage Cracker on October 09, 2007, 11:25:57 PM
The only times I don't like the toyota roll is when it goes on for like a minute and you're like on family guy when they were watching the extended version of the maude theme song, or when she does it to a big girl and it takes 5 seconds to make her go around once.

BTW, can anyone think of a better drop kicker than toyota?
Title: Re: Manami Toyota
Post by: Her Majesty Queen Kori I on October 10, 2007, 06:13:17 AM
I will say, Kurihara rocks the dropkick pretty hard...
Title: Re: Manami Toyota
Post by: twisted on October 10, 2007, 08:11:54 AM
Oh, yes, Ayumi reminds me of another great dropkicker of the old age: Tomi Aoyama
Both jump very high, and instead of delivering the kick with their legs already starightened they use the legs like springs, making the impact look harder.
yesterday I watched a match where a very green (but already great) Ayumi was repeatedly dropkicking The Bloody in that way -which didn't prevent her to be severely punished for that-

I just love the height and velocity manami gets in hers and that she always uses a straight dropkick. I saw a match of hers from 89 and her dropkicks were really sad. Reminded me somewhat of haruka matsuo's last year(hers have gotten better) but just seeing toyota kick someone in the back of the head whether it's inside the ring or from the top rope to the outside it always brings me joy

a personal favorite is her match with aja kong (a match i can never get enough of)

Oh and she wrestled in north-korea as well, with Bull, Hokuto and Yoshida on some WCW based thing. That match got put up somewhere recently *forgets where*.  Those girls have got major gumption.  Nobody could pay me enough to do anything in North Korea  *whee

I just checked every page of the ECW history at ProWrestlingHistory.com. There is no mention of Manami Toyota.

So I'm thinking this is probably just a burgeoning urban legend, right? Ah-ha... a lot of ECW talent worked FMW shows... and I think there was a lot of footage exchanged and even distributed by FMW where ECW regulars appeared. Manami Toyota has definitely appeared on at least one or two or maybe more FMW shows. It's likely the belief that she has appeared "in ECW" stems from her appearance on something that may have been billed as an "ECW invasion of FMW" show... or the like.

In December 96 an AJW Fan Club trip to NY included Toyota, Yamada, Shimoda, and Mita. Paul E wanted to run a show with the AJW tag on it, but in his usual disorganized way, he couldn't get a building. Paul E and a couple of his boys came to Itsuki's Go to meet them and take pictures together for the Japanese magazines. Of course I remember where Manami was sittting, but can't even remember who Paul E brought with him.

Heyman lore has grown on a lot of things he allegedly planned or wanted to do.

Cool story. Seems like any combination of things could lead someone to just make an amalgamated statement that "Manami Toyota wrestled in ECW."

Deffo nagashima, although I suppose I can see that you could get confused between the two.  Hell, even in the ring they are both tiny wrestlers who take hellacious beatings and show Teh Fighting Spirit.

I'd also have to say daizee haze has one of the worst drop kicks I've ever seen. It's especially noticeable in her missile drop kicks. She barely gets any height and has very little extension in her legs.

Also does anyone else think manami toyota hurts herself more from her quebradas than the person she does them to?

what do you mean by "straight dropkick" ?
Title: Re: Manami Toyota
Post by: Sakebito_ONI on October 20, 2007, 11:33:11 AM
the dropkick used in all of lucha where you end up backbumping after impact
Title: Re: Manami Toyota
Post by: Sabrina the Teenage Cracker on October 20, 2007, 04:18:27 PM
Where instead of ending the dropkick on their stomach they end up on their back.
Title: Re: Manami Toyota
Post by: twisted on October 21, 2007, 07:07:06 AM
Thank you for the clarification. Anyway, the straight dropkick was something Itsuki Yamazaki used to do a lot in the 80s. A trademark of hers was to make a very long  and fast series of straight dropkicks that didn't allow the opponent any recovery time. I have also watched on youtube a match where Kanako Nagatomo (who debuted along with Ogura, Nakano and Mika Komatsu) does the same and each time she springs up from the floor with a kip.
So, Manami's not the first, but her dropkicks are outstanding for their height...
Title: Re: Manami Toyota
Post by: Sabrina the Teenage Cracker on October 21, 2007, 02:20:41 PM
I knew she wasn't the first but I wondering if she was the one who made them famous, like doing 30 dropkicks on kansai from the dreamslam II match
Title: Re: Manami Toyota

Post by: UnstableProtagonist on October 22, 2007, 02:00:14 PM
Correction: it is known as the "Rolling Cradle".

I agree that Toyota-san, even though she definitely was not the first wrestler to have pioneered the dropkick (in fact, the dropkick had become a common move for wrestlers in the 1980s), delivers one of the best dropkicks ever seen in pro wrestling. It's all in the execution and height she gained as she delievers the manuever and it's always fun to see her use it because it gives the impression that she is going to decapitate her opponents with just one straight dropkick to the cranium.
Title: Re: Manami Toyota

The only move I've read to be called after her is the "Toyota Roll" which is that roll into the sunset flip that she does.

What is the name of that ground submission hold that she put on Dynamite Kansai during the Dreamslam II main event where she held Kansai's arms and used her legs to trap Kansai's? I've always called it the "Toyota Special" since she's the only one I've seen use it.

the other JBA. I've always called them flying front dropkicks.

EDIT: Actually, I think it may have been a member of the Golden Pair to do it even before Yamazaki. Remember when I posted that really old Golden Pair match on the old board? I think that move was in there.

Well, when the Steiners brought the hurricarana back from the Japan, they changed it to the Frankensteiner, so it's just following the formula to call it the Frankentoyota.

I just don't think Frankentoyota rolls off the tongue as nicely as Victory Star Drop.
Title: Re: Manami Toyota
Post by: General HENkada on October 27, 2007, 06:43:02 PM
I'll go with Victory Star Drop too. It's got that big move sound to it. Having too many moves named after someone waters down the specialness of actually having a move that is legitimately named after someone... or it's like Joey Styles calling a Taz match in the old ECW.

i dont remember any hogan match that got 5stars at all
it's easy to believe anyway that toyota is THAT GOOD

Manami Toyota vs Akira Hokuto = Queen of Workrate vs Queen of Drama

That's the arguement over who is the greater "greatest wrestler."

*chl

queen of drama?
i believe that especially during her dreamslam matches

Speaking of those two....I know I've asked this a million times but does anyone have any of their matches, and if so could you put them on veoh? And does anyone have toyota vs yamada(Not the hair vs hair but the other one that had better wrestling without all the heat) or the two tags against kudo or the one where she gets uber bloody?

Post by: Mizztrezz on November 01, 2007, 03:01:51 PM
I do have one of their matches, and thanks to googling, I'm not sure if it's the one from Destiny or not, but it's from September of 1995, and it's probably my most popular vid.  I think that actually this isn't from Destiny, but from a match from earlier that month.  I'm shocked if you didn't see this yourself already, so here you go. 

I could only find a clipped version, but it's still one of my big guns when it comes to converting people to joshi:

2. her vs yamada (hair vs hair)
3. her vs mariko yoshida

Title: Re: Manami Toyota
Post by: Coffee on November 08, 2007, 02:32:14 AM
i think that match was very good coz even if toyota's style is more of a high flyer and yoshida is more of a submission specialist, the match ended up very good
Title: Re: Manami Toyota
Post by: Sabrina the Teenage Cracker on November 08, 2007, 02:38:01 PM
I'll have to rewatch it because when I first saw it I got so bored because manami toyota is such a highflyer that she never tried to reverse any of yoshida's submissions, she just tried to get to the ropes. I do believe toyota does have some great chain wrestling skills, because she used them early in her career but I think she doesn't use them because she wants to be remembered as a high flyer or something.
Title: Re: Manami Toyota
Post by: DANgerous K on November 08, 2007, 03:18:40 PM
It's all about Toyota being flexible as hell and it being impossible to make her submit because of that, but it's what Yoshida does best so she's determined not to let Manami counter her and is forcing Toyota to look for rope breaks.  Hmmm, has anybody made Manami submit in the last ten years?

I had that same impression when I watched the match about a few times. I believe that Toyota's matches in the 90's (especially those from the "*****" department) had taken a toll on her - and thus she was more reserved in terms of executing extensive mat work with Yoshida. The match itself could have been better if the aforementioned were presented, but it was still a good match, nonetheless.

The new breed are still green, but most of them are only in their 2nd/3rd year of wrestling - same as Toyota was here. Tamura was very green when I firstsaw her as a rookie. Just have some patience with the girls and theyll awe you with flying colors. If you refuse, than you just a haterr!!

According to the wrestling observer, toyota's 5 star matches are

Dynamite Kansai & Mayumi Ozaki vs. Manami Toyota & Toshiyo Yamada(Dream Rush)
Manami Toyota & Toshiyo Yamada vs. Dynamite Kansai & Mayumi Ozaki(Dreamslam II)
Manami Toyota vs. Kyoko Inoue(60 minute time limit)
Aja Kong vs. Manami Toyota(Big Egg Universe)
Manami Toyota vs. Toshiyo Yamada(Hair vs Hair)


But it's really only a matter of opinion. I'd add some more matches, definitely the ones you said, and some more. I love just about any match toyota's in. I haven't seen her in a bad match after 1991. I really wanna see that mima shimoda match.

Title: Re: Manami Toyota
Post by: Sabrina the Teenage Cracker on November 12, 2007, 05:41:28 PM
It takes into account the amount of action, as opposed to restholds ("workrate"); the difficulty and variety of moves used; the history of the workers and their feud; the development of an in-match storyline based on the wrestling moves and how they affect the wrestlers; and the overall reaction of the crowd.

Man I can just imagine that shimoda/toyota match. It sounds likes Jungle Jack vs Nakano/Iwamota on crack. *acts like Sakaki when she thinks about cats.* I wish there was someone who could make me a dvd of all Toyota's greatest matches. I also want to see Bison Kimura vs Manami Toyota, because I think bison's very underrated and definitely added a great touch of psychology with those screams of a woman being raped.

Subjectively.

And "workrate" is an undefined smark term that is equally subjective.

People should like what they like, regardless of what Meltzer or any critic says. If you enjoyed a match, that's all that mattered... even if it got panned with a 1/2* rating.

I don't know about one or two of the matches they were given 5 stars for but the stuff those two pulled off in the 90's was pretty fucking special.

Besides comparing Joshi & Man Puroresu is comparing two things which are in a way quite different. The style Joshi wrestlers used in the 90's was much different to the atyle AJPW used for example. Some people don't "get it", some do.

Her match against Hokuto went 20 odd minutes but nobody online has the full version, only 7 odd minutes are shown.

Also - Toyota versus Kudo?  I looked at that and did a search and have just found this

Haven't watched yet but it looks like it might be good!

Get the rest of the parts here add this to the youtube addess to get the rest of the parts  watch?v=Z6AK49LbiO0&feature=related

Yeah she had a tag match with yamada vs kudo/toyoda from FMW and from the main even of Dreamslam I, though I haven't seen the ladder. I just wish she could have had a singles match with kudo. Mizztrezz is getting AJW Destiny so hopefully we'll be able to see hokuto vs toyota '95 in all of its glory soon.

Many legends and honorees are in attendance, and several lend their name and wrestling talent to this project. The kicker is a great match between Manami Toyota and Chigusa Nagayo. I'm still stunned at the incredible ending of this great match. I don't think I've ever seen Manami cry "uncle", but Chigusa was in rare form, and could not be beaten by anyone on this night.

Hmm, Liger wasn't a high flier after he broke his leg & certainly not after his brain tumour. Toyota wasn't really a high flier, either. She did moves off the top turnbuckle, etc., but girls had been doing those moves for years. What set Toyota apart were bridges, IMO. Only Sasuke compares in terms of flexibility. Although I recall reading somewhere that Toyota didn't watch men's wrestling.
Title: Re: Manami Toyota
Post by: Sabrina the Teenage Cracker on December 03, 2007, 11:21:55 PM
I don't really watch men's wrestling either. I'll watch the occasional cruiserweight match, seeing as I love Sonjay Dutt(in more ways than one) but I don't know...I just don't get the same feeling from watching a men's match as I do a woman's match. I think toyota's not really any specific type of wrestler. Yes she highflies, but she she also has amazing suplexes that you don't really see highfliers doing. I think she's amazing at both highflying and suplexes.

BTW, now I love Yoshida vs Toyota. I was watching it the first time wanting toyota to show off technical prowess but that's not what the match is about. It's yoshida bending toyota but toyota trying to slap or elbow the shit out of yoshida so toyota can create distance for a dropkick or suplex attempt.
Title: Re: Manami Toyota

Title: Re: Manami Toyota
Post by: Sabrina the Teenage Cracker on December 03, 2007, 11:35:18 PM
Yeah.....I hope my mainly watching women's wrestling will help my career....like set me apart from the other men. I'm definitely gonna try to somewhat emulate Toyota with the dropkicks and suplexes, but I'm going to add a lot of just the combined wrestling I've seen over the years to help complete my repertoire. I wanna go to wrestling school here, possibly the chikara one, then go down to mexico, and finally train in japan...hopefully by yoshida.........
Does manami train at all? Her being my trainer would be instant creamage.
Title: Re: Manami Toyota
Post by: ohtanisjacket on December 04, 2007, 01:16:38 AM
Toyota's style was "go-go-go", constant movement, constant action... Her immediate selling was OK, but long term or accumulated selling was something she wasn't interested in. Plus she was so aloof, like an ice queen. I could never get into her that much, but she was in some genuinely great matches. They wanted to push her as a schoolgirl idol, but it didn't work. Instead she did photobooks and brought men to the shows. She released a CD around '93, but that type of crossover was dead by then. I liked it when she'd play the subtle heel.
Title: Re: Manami Toyota
Post by: DANgerous K on December 04, 2007, 03:32:55 AM
I love Manami's athleticism and her ability to just go when she was younger was astounding.  But in all honesty, for the most part I prefer older, bigger, more subtle Manami.  I think she makes quite a good pain in the ass these days :)  As Ohtani said, she has got a good ability to be a bit heelish and as she got older I dont think she has minded playing up to that.  I thought she was quite good as the icy heel champ in GAEA as long as that lasted.
Title: Re: Manami Toyota
Post by: Sabrina the Teenage Cracker on December 04, 2007, 06:46:45 AM
I honestly prefer her to not have immediate selling. It makes it so she can get great comebacks, especially against bigger opponents. I also think she had great charisma despite what others may say. Yes she could have better charisma, especially with the ability she had which could create great spots for charisma, but I think she used the amount of charisma she had perfectly. She always knew how to tell the crowd that she was gonna do a big move. And I love in Hokuto/Toyota from destiny how when she's gonna do a second northern lights bomb she has hair all in her face and she raises her finger in the air spinning it. I love everything about toyta, and I can't wait to get my dvds from thatdude, especially since it has the JGP that has Toyota vs bison kimura, toyota vs shimoda(which punq gave *****) and toyota vs yamada(and when is that ever a bad thing?....that's right never)

They turned her heel around 2000, if I remember. She was never that comfortable with it. Toyota was popular, but not a particularly great actress. The subtle heel stuff I was thinking about were the interpromotional matches, especially against Fukuoka.

I'd say, starting from the second row:

manami toyota, toshiyo yamada, unknown, etsuko mita
first row:
unknown, unknown, mima shimoda.

who are the girls with toyota in the first two color pictures, instead?

Landell at 411mania is "98%" positive that Manami Toyota invented the Psycho Driver. Can anyone confirm this? Looks more like something Kyoko Inoue would do.

Watch it, Oni. You've just mentioned Super Dragon in a Manami Toyota thread when it is unnecessary, considering I'm a fan of SD.

Actually, Toyota had used a piledriver in the past, but it was only in a few matches as I can recall such as the aforementioned.

Hey, I've seen that as well. Actually, it was a video clip I've seen on YouTube over a year ago. It looked to be a double arm underhook variation of the manuever, though. I wish I had the link for it, but it has been taken down a long time ago.

Apparently, the director of the channel where those clips were shown were taken down because he/she failed to comply to the rules and regulations of Google - and thus that person's account was suspended. Maybe you should ask Oni since he experienced YouTube's rejection first hand.

for rejection to happen, someone who knows that it belongs to THEM and not you has to raise a stink over it...and then they'll e-mail you a warning when they take said link down...three warnings = account deleted, but if you've upped stuff that breaks the rules after they've warned you once, they BAN you from creating accounts.  I wasn't able to recreate an account at YT until after I moved to a new house and then used an IP roller that my bloke sent me.

Speaking of which, I am going to do another Manami match soon (since most of my cash is almost gone, hehe), but in a little twist, I'll first add it to Veoh, and THEN YT instead of the other way around.  I just feel like it, I guess.  Someone mentioned Manami's match with Chikayo Nagashima, I believe, from 2002, and I just happen to have it, so I'm gonna rip it and post on Veoh (so that others can download), and THEN I'll post it in my old stomping ground.  No, I haven't turned my back on YT just yet, I just feel like doing things the other way, for once, hehe.  I'll try to do so this evening.  It's a fun match, so keep an eye out.

Greetings All,

First time poster, long time reader.  I thought that this might be the place to ask a question.

Next week I go on a wrestling tour of Tokyo, and one of the nights our tour is having dinner with Manami Toyota.  We the patrons were asked to give Manami a "Thank You" card with a monetary donation.   

Since there are actual women on this board, please enlighten me on how much I should actually donate, or should I give a gift instead and what kind of a gift.

Thanks,

See, this whole monetary donation bit kind of puzzles me, since I know that tipping of any sort is frowned upon in Japan...maybe they're thinking of it as an appearance fee.  I'm thinking 2000-2500 Yen...hopefully, someone like lucky or totoro or ka-to will chime in and either say that's a good amount or not....

You should ask Mayfield how much he recommends. Japanese people give money at weddings and funerals, not at dinners. Surely Mayfield should be paying Toyota an appearance fee out of your tour cost. Anyway, if I was going to a wedding it would be 10000 yen minimum. So maybe 5000 yen is OK. 2000-3000 isn't particularly generous.

It's starting to get cold in Tokyo, not so much in the daytime but at night. Bring winter clothes. There might not be as many people as usual, since a lot of them go back to their home town at this time of year.

They wrestled each other twice in '95, once at Queendom II (3/26/95) and again at Sapporo (6/27/95).

Post by: Sabrina the Teenage Cracker on December 28, 2007, 01:51:13 AM
It just kind of stayed at the same pace. It very rarely picked up. And when it did aja would go back to a resthold. It's why I don't like a lot Kyoko inoue matches. Is great as she is, too much of her match are spent using boston crabs and camel clutches. I love submission wrestling, but when the moves are that basic, used over and over, and used until the opponent reaches the ropes(which can take almost a minute some times) is when I get bored
Title: Re: Manami Toyota
Post by: UnstableProtagonist on December 28, 2007, 02:16:31 AM
Sometimes, Kyoko would change up her submissions or use variations of a hold that have a similar effect. I perfer any match that is not overly rushed without being overly conservative at the same time. Usually, when I watch submission wrestlers, they usually use basic holds to depict the pace of the match and maintain control of the momentum without exerting immense amounts of their own energy. At most times, a submission hold could be used as a basis for setting a opponent up for either a wrestler's signature move, signature hold, or finisher. It's a matter of stragedy and psychology.

Whenever I watch CM Punk's matches from his indy days, I always anticipate him using a basic hold such as a simple headlock to ware down his opponents. In this way, he can plot his next move without having to think about it on the fly. Furthermore, the headlock is detrimental to Punk's preparation to delivering the Pespi Twist (a hammerlock lariat combination), the Shining Wizard, or if all else fails, the Pespi Plunge upon his opponents.

The same case is with Ayumi. Her delivery of dropkicks from various angles and positions sometimes makes up for her lack of moves in her arsenal. In some cases, she would even dropkick an opponent's arm, if necessarily, to weaken it for an udehishigigyakujujigatame (cross arm breaker).
Title: Re: Manami Toyota
Post by: Sabrina the Teenage Cracker on December 28, 2007, 02:35:26 AM
Yeah I know. I just don't like when she uses it in the middle of a match right when the match started picking up. Also, a lot of times on opponents who don't continue to sell after the move simply scream during the move, it doesn't do much as they don't add it to their psychology. However against an opponent like Akira hokuto it'd be fine.
Title: Re: Manami Toyota
Post by: UnstableProtagonist on December 28, 2007, 02:43:34 AM
Although the use of surfboard variants becomes stagnant after they were appiled about a dozen times, I could understand Kyoko's intentions behind it. With an opponent such as Hokuto or Toyota, using such tactics is quite necessarily, but if she's facing anyone else, then she'll have to switch her gameplan and dictate the pace through other means.
Title: Re: Manami Toyota
Post by: conchinette on December 28, 2007, 07:13:55 AM
Since we were going on about moonsaults earlier, can anybody describe for me what an Orihara Moonsault looks like?

Oh and about Morrison doing the split-legged version of the sky twister press, it was a good idea to do that version because with the way he was setting up opponents before, there was no way he was ever going to hit someone using the regular version. That gymnast background sure helps in making regular bumps look worse/exagerated.

It makes sense against toyota, she's damn near impossible to submit but you can wear away her energy to stop her running circles around you later in the match (although Manami will just no-sell this usually anyway, which means it kind of ends up not making sense and thats a whole other argument about Manami's flaws as a wrestler, but there you go) but Aja is a heel, and you hate it when she does this.  Job done then, eh?  If you were watching this at the time, thinking outside of the wrestling is fake and we see it as a performance art/entertainment mindset, if you were a Manami mark, you would get pissed off at Aja's tactics and want Manami to find the break and come out on top.  That makes total sense to me.
Title: Re: Manami Toyota
Post by: ohtanisjacket on December 28, 2007, 08:00:56 AM
Kyoko was never a submission wrestler. She just did the surfboard variations because they look cool. And it has nothing to do with psychology, it's to kill time. If it's sold OK, then who cares?

i prefer to believe this argument although if this is done just to kill time, it's effective knowing there are time limits when it comes to matches in japan. as for kyoko inoue, she is less of a submission wrestler and more of the fast type of wrestler.
Title: Re: Manami Toyota
Post by: ohtanisjacket on December 28, 2007, 05:11:18 PM
I meant "killing time" in the sense that if they're booked to go 20 minutes, they need to fill in the time and submissions are a good way of eating up time before the big moves and nearfalls. In most Joshi matches, they come right after the opening exchanges. Kyoko's submissions were good because she interacted with the crowd, it was showmanship, like the Giant Swing.

i could only recognize the japanese ocean cyclone suplex, the moonsault and the victory star drop
Title: Re: Manami Toyota
Post by: UnstableProtagonist on December 28, 2007, 09:01:51 PM
I noticed that the Rolling Cradle, another of Toyota's trademark signature manuevers, didn't make the cut. I'd put that onto my Top Ten list any day. Then again, it would be tough to distinguish a move from Toyota's repertoire that is not the JOC or the Queen Bee Bomb.
Title: Re: Manami Toyota

Title: Re: Manami Toyota
Post by: UnstableProtagonist on December 28, 2007, 09:31:45 PM
The Queen Bee Bomb is on the list, but it is coined as "Cutthroat Nothern Lights Bomb", which is the technical name of the finisher.

He would use the one where she botched a little>.<...also I wish he would have used the rolling version of the toyota roll. I mean he fricken had her match from the V*Top tournament. Oh well. Still I'm glad to see he is showing people the light of joshi. Since it seems he's more into male wrestling, he's gonna get more subscriptions than someone with mostly joshi, but then putting a top ten of Manami Toyota, his subscribers would casually take a look and wanna see more. Good for him I guess *approve

Wow Manami Toyota did her inside springboard moonsault to the outside a lot more than I thought. I thought it was a one time spot at DreamSlam II, but I've seen her do it twice on my videos, and she even went for it on the match against hokuto(JGP '93) but hokuto stopped it and got manami trapped in the ropes.

Well yeah, but I mean she's on the inside and gets on the second rope and has her back turning to the fans, then flips over the top rope to the outside opponent.....I've only seen her do it once where her face didn't smack into the mat...and I've seen her sell it zero time...damn if my face smacked like that I'd be crying, but maybe when your face is shaped like a sheild, it gains the strength of a shield *bwah

To me, the most impressive thing about Toyota was her strength. My favourite spot of her's is in the DS II main where about 15-20 minutes in she grabs Kansai and hits a picture perfect German. Pure dead-lift, no help from Kansai at all.

And on that note I'd like to know if Manami ever reused that front forward fall Japanese Ocean Suplex variant on Mayumi Ozaki in the St. Final show in any of her matches ever again or was that just a one time improv?

(Man, Ozaki figured into the finish of that entire series. Loses the final fall at Dream Rush, wins the final fall at Dreamslam 2, loses the match at St. Final.)

ELPS, have you forgotten the TNA PPV buyrates for 2007?
they have a TV deal but ROH PPV rates outnumbered them
how do you call that financially secure?

if she wanted financial security, she should occasionally wrestle at ROH like daizee haze

hmm, wait a minute
misawa wrestled in Glory By Honor and his name alone boosted ticket sales at manhattan
would you go to manhattan if toyota accepts SHIMMER's invitation?

New member to this forum & just wanted to post how much of a fan I am of the INCREDIBLE Manami Toyota!! I've become a fan through watching her matches & CAN'T BELIEVE she's still active after 20+ years...and as good as ever!!

Her missile dropkicks & the "Manami Roll" are two of my favorite holds but her plancha dives from the middle of the ropes or top rope are also AWESOME!! She's become my 2nd favorite Joshi wrestler of all-time, behind Megumi Kudo!

I dream of being able to attend a Manami Toyota match before she retires...not very likely, unfortunately...but I can still watch videos or DVDs of her career, forever!! I have a videotape compliation of Manami's early career, hosted by her, ending with the 30 opponents in 30 minutes match but was wondering if there might be a compliation DVD of Manami's recent work with GAEA, NEO, Oz Academy & other promotions that she might have worked for since leaving AJW??!

YOU'RE GREAT, MANAMI!!

Post by: DANgerous K on January 22, 2008, 03:05:34 PM
I was watching Manami versus Kandori for the wwwa title from about 97 I think.  Absolutely a clash of styles that was simultaneously bad but fun at the same time, but that ended with an arm and leg combo submission on Manami.  That might be her first "give up" in a big match.  It was certainly before the one against Chigusa (and a hell of a lot more convincing too) ;).
Title: Re: Manami Toyota

knowing kandori has a background in judo, hence her decent wrestling matwork, it would be a clash of styles like that match toyota had with yoshida

Totally, and there was a lot of what seemed like uncooperation between the two, which it was hard to tell if it was deliberate or not especially with the way the match was booked (Kandori outsider arrogantly holding the title, Toyota Zenjo ace attempting to take the title back home).  I would love to see the full match as the version I saw was clipped to some extent.

Perhaps, it's on a DVD of a certain Joshi show. When exactly was the match fought?

You've got the wrong idea. Sara sells the DVD of her matches in Japan against Toyota. She visited this board and discovered the matches had been uploaded on VEOH without her consent. This leads to fewer fans buying the DVD and Sara makes less money off them.

Title: Re: Manami Toyota
Post by: kudofanatic on January 27, 2008, 10:06:59 PM
I just checked every page of the ECW history at ProWrestlingHistory.com. There is no mention of Manami Toyota.

So I'm thinking this is probably just a burgeoning urban legend, right? Ah-ha... a lot of ECW talent worked FMW shows... and I think there was a lot of footage exchanged and even distributed by FMW where ECW regulars appeared. Manami Toyota has definitely appeared on at least one or two or maybe more FMW shows. It's likely the belief that she has appeared "in ECW" stems from her appearance on something that may have been billed as an "ECW invasion of FMW" show... or the like.

As somebody who went to MANY ECW shows back in the day, I would've remembered Manami Toyota wrestling there!! Of course, I must admit that i had NO clue who she was back then *gloom Wasn't aware of Joshi until much later & the first Japanese female wrestler who really got my attention was Megumi Kudo...but it probably had a lot to do with the ECW-FMW connection!!

I'm sure if I were aware of Manami Toyota then, I would've followed her since then but she never wrestled in ECW that I know of. Knowing what I know now, that would've been an absolute DREAM come true...to see her in her prime, LIVE *approve

Well, I received my DVD copy of Sara Del Ray's Japan tour in 2005 & saw the first match on the DVD...v Manami Toyota  *approve  It's the first of three singles matches between the two & will also feature a tag team match between Sara/Mika Nishio v Manami/Mima Shimoda *omg  Can't wait to see the rest of the DVD. Unfortunately, don't have the equipment or knowledge to upload clips for everybody but think it's worth the money to purchase. There is only 1 camera angle for the first match...not sure about the rest...but it's a good angle.

The match was not as lopsided as people have said. Yes, Manami controlled the match but Sara was not outmatched, at all. I had to root for Manami, though I do like Sara, and Manami is as GORGEOUS as ever *Oni* Though, she's not as quick or high-flying as before, she hasn't lost a step!!

Ok, turns out that the first review was actually the last singles match on the tour between Ssra Del Ray & Manami Toyota and was dated April 23, 2005. The first singles match between the two was held on March 26, 2005 & here's the review:

Manami was introduced to a streamer shower by the fans *approve  They set up for a lock-up but Manami drives a kick into Sara's stomach, followed by an armdrag off the top rope. Manami then sets Sara up on the ropes & delivers her missile dropkick into Sara's back, goes for a second but Sara hits a shoulder block, followed by a series of headbutts. Sara then starts kicking Manami in the head several times but Manami gets angry & starts yelling at Sara but Sara again hits the headbutt & follows with a waist scissors/chokehold combo but Manami drives her elbow into Sara's knee to break the hold. Manami then delivers a foot stomp to Sara's groin/crotch area, followed by a spread eagle legdrop on Sara's legs  Manami then sets Sara up in a layover leglock/chinlock & you can hear the ref ask Sara, over & over, "Give up?" Manami then switches & gets Sara in a camel clutch & pulls Sara's mouth apart with her fingers, first to one side of the crowd & then the other, getting a chuckle from the crowd *bwah  Sara connects with a couple of forearm shots to Manami's chest, followed by a gulliotine legdrop. Manami comes back & delivers a number of kicks to Sara's head & stands on Sara's shoulders while in the corner. Manami then applies the figure-4 leglock on Sara...which produces a nice comedy spot, with Manami saying something to Sara but Sara saying, "No Japanese...duh," to which Manami tells Sara the Japanese word for "ouch" & Sara replies in english *haha  Really funny moment. Sara reverses the figure-4 & has Manami screaming in pain but Manami switches the hold back herself. Manami then locks Sara up in an octopus hold...unfortunately, the camera angle had Manami & Sara's back to the camera  Manami delivers 2 missile dropkicks for a 2 count. Following a series of countermoves, Sara hits Manami with a series of clotheslines but tries one too many & falls out of the ring on the third try. Manami then hits the plancha from the top rope onto Sara & drags her back into the ring. She goes for a moonsault body press but Sara moves. Manami hits the back suplex on Sara & sets up the moonsault press again, which she hits this time, but only gets a 2 count. Manami goes to the top rope again & Sara gets up and hits Manami with a forearm shot to the head but Manami slaps Sara, knocking her off the top rope, & attempts a missile dropkick but misses. Sara then hits a backward slam (like the one ODB uses) & picks Manami up for a bodyslam, saying, "You're through, Manami" but Manami reverses into a roll-up pin. Manami then gets Sara in the Toyota Roll. Sara hits a powerbomb on Manami but only gets a 2 count. Manami kicks Sara from behind & delivers a back suplex but Sara kicks out. However, Manami follows up with a Northern Lights Bomb for the pin & win after about 14:30 minutes!!

Solid match, with more comedic moments than their last match!! Manami did more top rope moves in this match, I thought, and showed again that she's still AMAZING. Sara was good too but I thought Manami dominated this match more than the previous one I reviewed!!

Should have the last match review...which will actually be their 2nd meeting on the tour...by tonight.

Actually, there is much difference between the first 2 matches & the last one...same type of match & the same holds, just in different variation. The BIG difference was Manami using a chair on Sara, outside of the ring, late in the match!! However, it had no major effect on the outcome, which was Manami hitting the Nortern Lights bomb on Sara for the pin after about 16 minutes.

I also caught the tag team match between Manami Toyota/Mima Shimoda v Sara Del Ray/Mika Nishio, which was on April 27, 2005. GOOD match between all four & I was surprised at how well Mima Shimoda & Sara Del Ray worked together...never having done so before!! Never seen Mika Nishio before or heard of her but I was impressed. Wonder what promotion she works for? It was AWESOME to see Mima Shimoda in action & she's as gorgeous as ever...and just as brutal *approve  There were chair shots used. Manami took one & Sara also. Manami went for the Japanese Ocean Cyclone suplex on two occasions...once on Mika & once on Sara but couldn't hit it either time. Eventually, Manami hit the Northern Lights bomb on Sara for the 1, 2, 3!! It ended after a good 18 minutes of action.

I just hope I can see Manami & Mima Shimoda, LIVE, before they retire *chl Talk about HOTNESS *Oni* test2

You can still win the match that you're putting the other person over in.  Wins and losses don't matter that much as long as you both look good doing it.  If win/loss record mattered, would Haruka be champ?  pffffft

If Toyota was to ever face Haruka, it would go to a draw...Manami's a freelance that hasn't held gold since dropping the JWP Openweight to Hyuga and NEO's done so much already to protect and make Matsuo look good that there's no other way that pairing could be booked.

And if anyone is allowed to have more posts than Ayumi, it's Toyota or Hokuto...it's not a failing on the part of the KLCC (and with her on the shelf, there's no matches for us to talk about and there are only so many "she's healing" blog updates to do) it's just that Manami is one of those giants upon whos backs our current favorites stand.

i don't mind having the toyota thread expanded to the limits since her career is THAT colorful to be talked about and it would be difficult to compress the topics about her

Also you know how she leaps to the top rope with a full run & no hands....... has anybody else ever managed such a feat, Ive seen loads of springboards Mike Awesome & Ohtanis being my favs but never one like the fearless Manami
Best Wishes Pete
[/quote]


Tomi Ayoyama did that leap to the top rope with no hands back in the very early 80's - I think its the finisher in a televised match against Cheryl Day and I'm sure that wasn't a one-time thing. How does anyone have the courage to even practice that?
Title: Re: Manami Toyota
Post by: Sakebito_ONI on February 09, 2008, 03:14:16 AM
6 inch crash pads are your friend for practicing those...and even then, accidents happen.  My first pro wrestling injury happened from trying the no hander over the top, my toe caught the rope on my way over and it was ugly.  Whenever I see just about anyone popping off with it like Manami does all clean and shiny, I mark out a bit cos I know what happens when the slightest bit of error occurs.

Watching Akira's match against her in '93 (as well as a bunch of other instances), I've got to say that the "Toyota scream" is just something else.

If my mother screamed like that, I'd be afraid. If my girlfriend screamed that way, I'd be scared.

Plus she's an amazing high-flyer.

I can understand Manami's nervousness...I'm a bit worried about going to Japan with the limited Japanese I know, though I do relish the thought of using it onj a daily basis...but I agree, with kapeng, that she should use it more & endear herself to non-Japanese fans.

Not to mention, I'm curious as how Manami sounds talking in english...can't be worse than many people *bwah

Post by: ohtanisjacket on February 16, 2008, 01:15:14 AM
Most Japanese people are uncomfortable about English. I doubt Manami speaks much English, and certainly there's no real need for her to endear herself to English speaking fans.

You don't need to speak any Japanese to visit Japan. Not a single word.

i was at the matches thread awhile ago and MadMaster commented that toyota's bridges (where her opponent is trying to pin her and instead of kicking out, she would do a screaming bridge) were unnecessary
i said that bridges especially with screams put drama into a match and sends a message to her opponent that it would take a hell lot more of beating to bring her down

I would hope so too. But alas, it's probably not... *sigh*

Dare I say, people generally comment on Manami's contemporary weight in jest. Likewise, she has done spots in recent matches that even poke fun at it.

That said, I don't read 411mania or whatever for anything, so I don't know or care what the intent of their comments was. As for the bridging out of pins, picking on that is like picking on anything in pro wrestling. It's all a work. Get over it. Everyone isn't going to like every move.

I always thought it was like she couldn't kick out, so she had to put all of her strength into bridging out, since she only did it after some big move.

Post by: Sabrina the Teenage Cracker on March 07, 2008, 11:15:02 PM
Well that's part of her charm. If she sold like Hokuto, her matches wouldn't be as fast paced, and she's such a ball of energy why would you want her any other way? If you want selling go for hokuto, if you want high energy go for toyota. That's why it's so magical when they get together. I can't wait for my dvd to come. It has unclipped Toyota/Hokuto '91

the crowd. She had just possibly injured takako inoue. And you know with the inoues being so popular(takako being an idol and kyoko having mad charisma) the crowd kind of turned on her. But then she turned into uber bitch mode which was all kinds of awesomeness. the match is double inoue vs shimoda/toyota. Not the 2/3 falls match though. I just love that match so much.

If you can't take no selling, you should not be watching Joshi.

There, with that out of the way, they way Manami no-sells nowadays is goofy and predictable (like every time someone torpedo dropkicks her). She still has great matches every so often, but a lot of times they're pretty average especially compared to some of the other top ladies.

I think the "no sell" arguments about Manami aren't about her "immediate" selling, as she's pretty good at screaming bloody murder when someone hits a move or puts a hold on her.  It's the "long-term" selling, when 30 seconds later she's forgotten about her "injury" and is jumping to the top rope or is flying around when it's her turn to hit moves.  Compare this to Hokuto, who's selling stuff that happened to her years ago.

As far as I know they never had a singles match. I'm guessing maybe yokota got injured or something before the match so they couldn't do it, or something. I have no idea what's with the picture. If anyone knows japanese could they translate the caption

She hasn't wrestled since, but she was made a full member of the OZ Academy and works as one of Mayumi Ozaki's evil underlings.  Mika & POLICE accompany Ozaki to ringside and help her cheat.  Mika dresses all trashy and trampy, flips off the crowd and yells at people, carries Ozaki's weapons, distracts the hapless referee, and helps with the "foot in the face" move they do on the babyfaces. 

I'm not sure if/when she'll be able to take bumps and possibly return to regular action.

Their '95 match kind of showed how they knew each other so well from tag matches with and against each other, and from their matches against each other, with how they kept reversing each other's signature moves, so they kept having to think of new ways to go about things.

As to the question about Manami's love life...

The last someone reported on it was in 2002, aout the time she left AJW, when she had a steady boyfriend. I don't know if she still is in a relationship or not.

It might've been Lorefice who made that report in the Quebrada.

Not to brag or anything, but there's another joshi article at 411mania.com, and it's not too bad, it's basically about the preconceived notions of women in wrestling in the US, but the interesting bit is near the bottom, when the guy talks about joshi wrestlers, notably Manami Toyota, and includes my post of the Aja/Manami match!  He provides his review of the match, and as is always the case with this particular vid of mine, he went in thinking one way, and came out changed, haha.  here's the link, scroll down near the bottom to find the joshi mention:

anyway, thanks for the article

toyota was labeled as "the ric flair of women's wrestling" which i kind of disagree coz she's not a heel for a chunk of her career
and she's not known much for chairshots and getting busted wide open
she's better known for being a high flyer
among the men, i consider her style closest to lyger
Title: Re: Manami Toyota

Well there was the debate about her being the 'female Sabu' but that debate died down after a bit. It is tricky trying to hit a US analogous to Toyota though maybe Bob Backlund might work (not for high flying but for her sheer vanilla babyface apporach for soooo long before finally realizing that she could play a heel).

James

if we could use this description, we might end up applying it for owen hart who took time being a face first before turning heel against bret
and by the way, was the term "female Sabu" associated first with KAORU?
(as of this moment, it's definitely not a compliment to be associated with sabu after watching several botchamania clips)

I'd go with Hokuto or Yokota for being female rick flairs.

applicable for both cases since ric flair is often remembered for technical prowess and psychological brilliance
as for cutting promos, it's applicable for hokuto since whenever she cuts promos, it's as if the crowd would pop up for every word she said

You can't compare her with Kudo, because they're two completely different styles. Kudo's not at all a highflier, and she doesn't use more suplexes than the average wrestler. She' most just a technical/Hard hitting wrestler.

You can always see traces of other wrestlers in terms of style and execution. Toyota is no different. Her flow is defintely of that old Jaguar Yokota flow with a much a quicker pace. Of course Manami does bring own things to the table to make Jaguar's old style her own and that is what makes her... well... Manami...

Well a lot of girls did that, since she trained most of them. She just added a lot more suplexes and more emphasis on dropkicks. I think she's very very influenced by Itsuki Yamazaki. She even did the no hands to the top of the ring post like yamazaki did.
Title: Re: Manami Toyota
Post by: twisted on June 10, 2008, 12:49:00 AM
Like Toyota, Itsuki was a dropkicking machine (landing most of the time on the back just like Manami does), and I think she was the first to do these long dropkicking sequences where she would kick, jump up, re-dropkick, jump up, redropkick, jump up, redropkick ecc. After her I recall Kanako Nagatomo (of Bull nakano, Yumi Ogura, Mika Komatsu generation) doing it, and afterwards Manami arrived on the scene...

His reviews make it weirder. He'll say you should go out of you way to see a match he rates **3/4. He actually said the Shu/Stock match was pretty good. It's only about 7 minutes, so I can kind of see why he'd review it like that.

w00t Jennifer Blake is a Manami fan. She wrote this blog:
Manami Toyota is one of my favorite wrestlers. I've been watching a lot of her matches on youtube lately. For anyone who doesn't know she really helped legitimize womens wrestling over in Japan. This chick is awesome and her back is made of steel. So check out her tribute video.. your mind will be blown dynamite style! LOL! wooo!

Just finished watching my "Best of Manami Toyota" video & saw the 30 opponents in 30 minutes match. Had a few questions about it:

1) Manami had a HUGE "egg" on her forehead afterwards but don't remember how she got it or when??

2) Manami was pinned only 3 times in 30 minutes...two of which came in the last 5 minutes *omg...by Kyoko Inoue, Mima Shimoda & don't know who the third was??

3) What was the exchange between Manami & Yumiko Hotta at the end??

4) Seemed like Manami "passed out" at the end of the 30 minutes & needed to be "revived"??

5) Is Manami Toyota the ONLY female wrestler to have such a match??

Gotta LOVE Manami's "toughness," as well as her beauty & wrestling skills *Oni*

I'm just puzzled, I mean how the HELL can you lose rights over the name you're born with?  That's a new one.  Hell, Manami is Manami to me, so I'll continue to call her as such.  She was a pretty good heel when she came to GAEA, she had this "I'm better than everybody" attitude, if I recall, which isn't exactly inaccurate

Yeah that was during the Generation War angle (Hotta/Toyota/LCO/Maekawa v. Ito/Watanabe/NANAMOMO/MIHOKAYO)

Of the members of the old guard, Toyota was the least heel. Of course that alliance didn't last too long as it turned into Hotta feuding with LCO eventually.

Toyota was just kinda along for the ride in the group between title reigns.

LOL, cant forget Black Joker, even if they sucked most of the time. You have Eagle, who blows and will guarantee a match to be bad. Then Takako being her usual lethargic self...and ofcourse that stupid stun gun which seemed so contrived just like her. Rumi Kazama was usually the one holding her team together.

They're feud with Kiss No Sekai was fun though.

Post by: Ozmont on August 28, 2008, 02:40:15 PM
Im not really talking about them from a fan point of view, more of how they are in the ring. BJ was pretty average in the way they work. Watanabe joining them wasnt for the best either, she was slow and lazy like takako in that time. The two had their moments, but very few.

Title: Re: Manami Toyota

Post by: J.H. - Firmly Re-Dedicated to Yoneyama! on August 28, 2008, 02:51:56 PM
Actually of the members of BJ, I always thought Eagle was the one who was motivated and gave the best in-ring performance. Kazama always did crappy heel schtick and Takako was trying to figure out her next career move and unmotivated. Eagle used her position as enforcer of the group to do what she did best, brawl and bully smaller opponents. It was the best she had done with that role in like 5 years.

She actually pulled a table out within the first minute of her match against Shimoda from JGP '95.

I actually think she looks loads better now. She's thicker, and has an actual figure instead of being a stick. And her face is fuller, and not so much of the looking like a shield...though that probably has more to do with dropping herself on her face with those second rope quebradas to the outside, and people botching carrying her when she did the Toyota roll.

I dont think Toyota was stick thin back then, she was fit. The closest thing to stick thin that Ive seen from that time was Akira Hokuto, Suzuka Minami and Mayumi Ozaki. They werent stick thin, but they were skinny compared to everyone else.

Post by: DANgerous K on September 20, 2008, 08:23:42 AM
Yeah, she's started heeling it up in Oz academy. They have been doing an angle where there are several groups in the academy, Carlos and Kansai's group, Aja and Toyota's and then of course, D-Fix.  Each group is made up of different Oz mainstays and hand-picked younger generation girls from the other promotions, like Hiroyo Matsumuto being part of Aja and Toyota's group.  Aja and Manami started having a dispute, which seemed to be based on who was the boss of the group and they started fighting about stuff like whether Hiroyo deserved her place and what to call the group.  It sounds like Aja wanted to call them Jungle Jack, after her old tag team, but Manami didnt like it.  So they had a match where if Aja won Manami would lose the right to her name and Aja could call the team anything she wanted but if Manami won she could do as she wanted.  Aja won the match and at a later show Manami announced her 'new' name, which turned out to be...Manami Toyota!  Cheekily, the way it is written makes it read as 'Evil' Manami Toyota and sure enough, Manami has had enough of Aja and is going her own heel way.  I'm not sure if she's joined the D-fix group now, but she seems to be dressing like them so that might be a good indication she has.

I was watching a video of Arsion I have, called "Perfect Arsion" & chronicles the promotion from 1996-2000, and had a few questions about Manami:

1) Why was Manami not more involved with Arsion?? I thought she was done with AJW by 2000 or so??

2) There was a quick clip of a match between Manami & Mariko Yoshida...which Manami wins...in 2001 and was wondering if there is a more detailed clip or the full match online somewhere?? I do plan to get an Arsion "Best of" DVD, which has the match in it's entirety, but wanted to check with the group.

she turned heel by joining DFix and taking the opportunity to beat hiroyo to a bloody pulp and refusing to drop her name as part of the stipulation (probably to attract heel heat). if her purpose is to attract heel heat thru that angle, it might turn out to generate positive heat since a lot of fans can't imagine her wrestling under a different name. but seeing her wear DFix's outfits still get me disturbed

thanks for the wallpaper, HEN

aligning herself with DFix might help her improve herself as a heel and besides OZ Academy's style of booking is quite simple: book credible heels in order to make the crowd sympathize with the babyfaces (reminds me of the heel mantra that killer kowalski once adapted in his career)

It's actually from a strange S&M flick. Not my 'cup of tea', but someone wanted it, so I rip'd it before sending it to them. It's fairly current (within the last 12 months I imagine). Manami & Cuty were the attractions from that movie. More 'screens' posted in Cuty's thread.

Thanks guys, so she would be about 16 in this picture.  Whow, how she developed in the 90's to be a major dynamo with her trademark black.  Man, if I could turn back time, that would have been one gal I would have loved to meet face to face and there were at lease two occasions where it could have been possible.  Which illustrates one bad aspect of getting older, you start to ponder the opportunities lost and if you had the forethought, how your life could have been made better!  A dilemma we will all share in time!

Nope, Bull was already teaming with Dump and feuding with the JBA and Crush Gals by then.

This was a year after Aja, Kudo, KAORU, and Combat Toyoda, and a year before Takako, Kyoko, Yoshida.....Maybe they are just unknown wrestlers who never really made an impact or something.

There were just so many matches that GAEA could have run that they probably didn't even think of. With Asuka and Chigusa alone, they could have run singles matches with them and other wrestlers that could have went on forever. I don't really fault them for not running as many as they could have(they might have worn out their audience with them anyway).

GAEA is more into pushing their own talents than relying on AJW stars
AJW on the other hand had a deep roster to sink their teeth into and that way, both hokuto and toyota didn't end up overworked

Well I meant in AJW too. Like they could have easily had them have a full on consistent feud in 93 or 94.

But I mean even as a one time Manami in GAEA match, it could have been cool to see Hokuto tie up the singles win/loss ratio against Manami.

Damn, Manami's really seems reenergized as a heel. She's doing tope-con-helio's in like every match, and doing stage dives and everything.

Her brawling has gotten pretty good, but it's still hilarious to see her trying to brawl. But yeah, she's really starting to do well, though you can see her sometimes get a little confused, like when she was going for a missile dropkick and started clapping, but then got hesitant like, "Should I be clapping as a heel?" But Mika Nishio is good at guiding her and stuff. But yeah, it's all good, and she's really trying to innovate some brawling spots so she adds more to the Oz Army than just another person to help D-Fix beat on a girl.

I think the reasoning as to why there only a handful of Toyota/hokuto matches was because each time they wrestled it was supposed to have a sense of meaning. If they ended up having a ton of matches against each other then the importance of those matches diminishes. Hokuto wrestled Aja in singles even less than she wrestled Manami I think but those matches meant something. It is actually a very effective booking tool to NOT have the top guys wrestle constantly that way when they do meet it is a big deal (in retrospect the number of Kong/Toyota matches is relatively small as well, isn't it?)

Also back then the AJW roster had such depth that you could effectively keep those 3 away from each other for long stretches.

Yeah, I guess, plus they basically had a match every year from 89 - 95 except in '94, but they had two in 90' so it makes up for it.

well people are still willing to cheer for her even as a heel. besides even if majority (if not all) members of the OZ Army flip birds to the crowd, they still get crowd pops

Hokuto was feuding with LLPW in '93 and was supposed to retire in '94 after her knee injury. The only reason they ran Hokuto/Toyota in '95 was because business as on the downturn and they brought Hokuto back part time.

I noticed this yesterday.  That website is for a hair replacement company.  That's basically an advert, and the idea is that the new hair of that guy is so lifelike that even Toyota can't wrestle it off.  If you notice in a lot of the pictures it's like she is doing submissions on his hair.  She's pulling on it a lot!  Hope im not pointing out the obvious.

Sorry to double post, but once again, my browser is having issues with the edit feature.


I'm a little perplexed as I work on a request to show each of Toyota's Japanese Ocean moves. I've got everything in hand, except for a little clarification issue: The Japanese Ocean Bomb. Every source I've found indicates that it's the Straightjacket Concrete Slam(essentially an Inverted Reverse Japanese Ocean Cyclone Suplex). However, twice I've seen Toyota use a Double Overhook Splash Mountain, with the announcers referring to that as the Japanese Ocean Bomb. Anyone feel like jumping in?

The move was primarily used in 1995/96(actually, it may have been just 1996), with it being brought out in the Double Inoues vs. Tokyo Sweethearts, in Toyota's match with Kyoko from March 31, 1996, and was teased in their Real Earnest match later in the year.

Hello
Could any of you help me identify the date of a Manami Toyota vs Aja Kong Match match please?
Heres the listing I had on the the tape I bought back in the 90s

AJW A Night in Nagoya 6th October 1996, Watanabe/Ito vs Tamara/?, Shimoda/Mita/Yamada vs Asari/Tamada/Fukawa, Takako Inoue vs Mariko Yoshida, Kyoko Inoue vs Yumiko Hotta, Manami Toyota vs Aja Kong

Now on IVP videos the show listed as 6th October 1996 is AJW TV: October 6, 1996 (Taped 9/28, Hakata) - (1 1/2 hrs)
1. Takako Inoue & Tomoko Watanabe & Yumi Fukawa -vs- Toshiyo Yamada & Etsuko Mita & Chapparita Asari [***]
2. Kyoko Inoue -vs- Yoshiko Tamura [**]
3. Aja Kong & Rie Tamada -vs- Yumiko Hotta & Kumiko Maekawa [*** 1/4]
4. Manami Toyota & Mima Shimoda -vs- Kaoru Ito & Mariko Yoshida - (WWWA Tag Title; 2/3 Falls) [**** 1/2]

The tape i have has virtually kicked the Bucket  *wail & I love this show The Manami vs Aja match is incredible, If it helps Aja wears white, Manami is WWWA champ, Toyota wins with a German suplex (It started as a cyclone but finished as a German)

Any help would be great as my tape now just constantly rolls,
Also if anyone is up for trading Joshi DVDs I'm up for that ;0)
Also does anyone know what the current link to Punqs site is? My one says the sites moved

Hi Pete,

October 6, 1996 is the correct date of that match. The Nagoya show took place that day and has only been released as a commercial videotape, while the Hakata show took place on Sept. 28 and was televised on October 6.

Here's PUNQ's current website address:

http://punqtapes.multiply.com/

I should add though that Lynch's VQ is a LOT higher when it comes to shows that were recorded before 2004.

Back to Manami Toyota & that Nagoya Aja Kong match, How tough is she?? She did a No Hands Tope Con Hilo to the floor while Aja was on the table, Aja & the table didn't budge an inch, Manami bounces backwards off the table landing on the back of head on the bare concrete floor!! Of course Manami Continues & thats why I love her.

I'll nominate the Nagoya Aja table dive

The Doomsday device at All Star Dream Slam 2 (The penultimate move in the match)

Big Egg the Running backbreaker front first in the ramp

I think Sapporo the match wear Aja beat her for title, MT missed a Sunset flip off the top & Aja squashed her chest

Hello
In the WWWA title match from AJW PPV: ZENJO TURBULENCE 24/02/2002 & AJW SATELLITE TV: September 8, 2001 (Taped 8/17 against Karou Ito she was getting top rope double Foot Stomped to pieces (along with other devistating moves) I was thinking at the time " Manami has raised the bar TOO high for herself , if shes going to lose clean she has to be absolutely devistated with punishing moves!" so I say Itos foot stomps should be added.

Akira Hokutos Centon table shot to the floor looked pretty devistating for Manami.

I was super impressed with the beating she took the night after Destiny against Hotta in JGP 95 final, I was even more impressed when I realised those 2 High Impact High Drama matches were on 2 consecutive days!! How sore was she when she woke up the next day??

AND OMG, Toyota had that destiny match right after her match against HOtta? OMG...that whole match was so damn devastating. Manami was just being mutilated that entire match and she still went on to have a 5 star match after it? WOW. My love for her just grew.

She and Kansai seem to <333 Ohata(look at matches featuring them. Kansai and Toyota sell pretty hard for her and Toyota gave her like 35% - 40% of the offense in their singles match. And Kansai went down from one of Ohata's forearms), so maybe her, though she'd need to work on her back and leg muscles a lot.

And I forgot that Jaguar is a tiny thing until I saw Manami being all taller than her and junk   *haha

Yeah, Jaguar's like Hyuga and Yoshida...like friggin midgety as hell, but she has such an aura and intensity about her that you see her as like circus freak Kumai Yurina size.

Quote
Natalya was rolling around on the mats of the legendary Hart Dungeon from the time she was in diapers, so it should come as no surprise that the third-generation Diva selected four of the most talented female ring warriors of all time for her squad.

"I’d pick Trish Stratus," Natalya said, favoring a fellow Canadian Diva. "I think that she brings everything to the ring as far as strength, beauty, power, grace and poise. And I’d pick the person I respect the most as far as females today — Beth Phoenix."

With two strong, modern-era Divas on her side, Natalya added a WWE Hall of Famer to the mix. "Then I’d pick Sensational Sherri, because she has so much charimsa, so much energy. Plus, she has a couple of extra things up her sleeve."

"And I’d pick Manami Toyota," Natalya said, showing respect for the legendary Japanese star. "She’s one of the greatest female wrestlers of our time. I think she’d bring a worldy skill to the team and we could get a different flavor of ice cream."

Yeah,but i saw a picture of toyota with phoenix and trish,which means that they re on the same level bored me.
In usa,they talk about the fact that trish was one of the best wrestlers ever and for me this is bullshit.
Yeah,she was good but not at the level of manami.

well Natalya didn't mention that those were better than Manami in order not to offend some "folks". as long as we are aware that she is the best and will never be in the same level as that of Trish, that should keep us calm

Wwe has no knowledge about women wrestling.They prefer models than real wrestlers and for me that s horrible.
If they were talking about a true women dream team,none of these north americans wrestlers,could be in it.I m sure everybody think like me(yes,i know that they should put over their past wrestlers,but for me the opinion of vince mc mahon and his buddies on women wrestling has zero interest,because they have obviously no respect for it,like i see each weeks,in their shows).
For me,the only promotions which have respect for women wrestling in usa are tna and shimmer.

Well I'll just I leave you to your convictions since we're getting off topic (you can continue in the Divas thread if you'd prefer). Anyways, back to Toyota...other than her acclaimed 90's matches can anyone make a brief listing of good Toyota matches from say '05 on up ? I ask because I'd like to feature some of those matches in a highlight vid.

So far she is the only one...actually, she won Most Outstanding Wrestler (Wrestler Of The Year, which is a separate award, went to Ric Flair). And might be the only one seeing how a Japanese wrestler has not won it since Misawa in '99 (in fact, only once in the '90s did a Japanese wrestler NOT win it). She practically won them all in '95, even the now-defunct Reader's Favorite Wrestler award.

Its strange because she went from using the japanese ocean suplex in every match to almost never using it. I haven't seen her use that move in 5 years I think. These days she gets almost all her pins with the Japanese Ocean Queen bee bomb because its her most modern finisher. I also haven't seem her get a win with the japanese ocean cyclone suplex in a long time, it seems every time she uses the move they kick out of it.

Manami Toyota will only be making 2 appearances in the US this year - at our events of September 18 (Baltimore, MD) and September 19 (Brooklyn, NY). She will be in the US for less than 7 days total.

As I'm sure it will come up (and we've certainly been bombarded with emails pertaining to this in the last day,) we do not know if Toyota will make herself available for autographs or photos at the events, as that is entirely up to her discretion. She has said she will be bringing souvenirs and other goods of hers to sell at the events. We are doing everything to accommodate her requests, and she will decide the types of matches she wants to do at these events.

Sorry to shill it here, but those ordering their tickets to the Toyota appearances, as long as the supplies last, get the limited edition Toyota promotional trading card mailed along with the order. Jump on it, kids!

With Manami going over to your .U.S.A. . Would Manami be pretty wealthy after all these years in Joshi puroresu. Correct me if l'm wrong be l think Manami stayed in ajw to nearly the end out of loyalty to the company even though there money situation wasn't too good.So l don't think the wage packet was too heavy at that time.
Also outside of joshi has Manami got any other ventures like having a eatery somewhere in Japan that Manami owns?
l hope Manami keeps going for a couple of more years for one of my goals in life is to see her wrestle and/or the meet Manami.

Just because Toyota has had more five star matches than Hokuto, dosen't mean that she's better than her. The Observer Newsletter is just a big load of opinions, not "This person is better than that person cause they have more ***** matches than them and that's final!!!!!" It's like how Kawada has had more ***** matches than Misawa, but most people thought Misawa was better. And what about women like Hyuga, Yoshida and Tamura? There practically legends as well and they never had ***** matches.

Logical.
Just because PWI puts McCool ahead of Death Rey does not make it so.
Meltzer is human and prone to favoritism. Using Observer ratings to determine who's the best only works if people lack the ability to think for themselves.

Either way, we should ignore Hyperion will he gets his troll on.

I didn't bring up 5 star matches, nor do I think they mean anything. However, none of you took issue when it was used to defend Akira as the best, so your violent objections now seem a bit...convenient.

Either way, we should ignore Hyperion will he gets his troll on.

Trolling because I posted new pics of Manami...in the Manami Toyota thread. Trolling because I said that Manami Toyota is the greatest wrestler ever...in the Manami Toyota thread, while others chose to push another wrestler...in the Manami Toyota thread. Trolling because I pointed out, after someone else mentioned it, that Manami had a lot more 5 star matches than Hokuto....in the Manami Toyota thread.

People, people...have to add my thoughts. As ELPS said, it's all subjective & the opinions of the posters! You are entitled to your opinion, John...just like others.

This being the "Manami Toyota" thread, it makes perfect sense that there would be pro-Manami posts. FWIW, Manami Toyota is the greatest female wrestler of all-time IMO...and don't mean to slight others...though Megumi Kudo will ALWAYS be my favorite Joshi wrestler of all-time *bwah

Manami Toyota is a legend and one of the all time greats.But the best ever is Akira Hokuto who had some classic 5 star matches with Manami Toyota.

The biggest difference between Hokuto and Toyota that I've read about from many sources is that Toyota's best matches are when she is paired against talent that could hold their own.  Hokuto's ability to put on quality matches with those that were not as skilled or experienced is what sets her apart.  Both are fantastic performers but Hokuto was clearly better on the microphone.

Toyota stayed a lot healthier so the technical in-ring work held up better over the long run.

Both are so good that you can't go wrong with picking either, it is a matter of taste.  I prefer the total package, particularly the microphone skills, so Hokuto gets my nod.  But I love watching Toyota too.

I think people in part have said that because Hokuto had the greatest match of all time with Kandori, who was not that great. However it's not like the rematch really captured that magic, or as if there was a shortage of truly all time great talent at the time. There was little reason for Toyota or Manami to not be facing stellar talent night in, night out.

I'm thinking more about how she could have an interesting match with the Rumi Kazama's, Yasha Kurenai's and those level of wrestlers that couldn't show a lot of variety in their matches.  This is where Hokuto was so good.  Hokuto had that extra level of creativity to go to that so few others had.

I agree. Case in point, Kandori/Hokuto vs Aja/Bull. Absolutely brilliant storytelling and creativity shown, that very few matches can compare to.

Though Toyota's storytelling shouldn't be completely discounted, like in Hyuga/Fukuoka vs Toyota/Ito.

But this argument really is pointless and this is a Toyota praise thread. So :

I always thought Hokuto/Kandori was overrated IMO. I mean it was a good match, but hardly "GRATEST WIMENZ MATCH OF ALL TIMEZZZZZ!!!111". Hokuto/Toyota at Destiny completely outclassed that match in everyway.

Melissa vs. Hokuto in her prime would've been awesome.

Sara Del Rey by far is the best American Women's Wrestler then I would say it's Cheerleadfer Melissa & Mschif. Death Rey can do it all no matter who she is wrestling and she has worked /wrestled with the top Women wrestlers in the USA and Mexico, Canada, Australia and Japan.

In her 2005 Japan Tour Sara Del Rey was in a match with a top Joshi star who had her in a figure 4 leglock and her opponent said something to her in japanese and SDR replied LOOK I DONT SPEAK JAPANESE!!! LOL

Better compromise: in the Manami Toyota thread, like most any other place in the world, Manami Toyota will remain the Greatest of All Time. If someone is bothered by this they can expect a healthy debate, or go to the thread of their pick and talk them up.

OMGOSH yes!!! I watched it recently and..it wasn't all that imo. What really put it off for me was the fact that....you could clearly see them talking to each other throughout the whole match. You can always spot talking in most matches but here it was so blatantly obvious that it killed the story. Perhaps it was the camera man's fault, idk, but I def wouldn't rate it as the best match of all time. Not even close.. I also thought Kandori looked ridic on offense if it wasn't her putting Hokuto in a submission. She couldn't even throw a decent clothesline.

CHIKARA's newest DVDs featuring Manami Toyota are set to release this Tuesday.  You can find them at Smart Mark Video (http://smartmarkvideo.com) at $20.00 per DVD.

Almost all of CHIKARA's DVDs and merchandise are sold at Smart Mark Video. That's where I bought the inagural King of Trios and TPI '04 sets.

Back on topic: I put Hokuto and Toyota at the Top Three women's wrestlers ever, with Hokuto slightly edging out Toyota at #2 (Jaguar Yokota would be #1). Toyota's incomparable workrate and breaktaking performance is synonomous to the hardcore fan's perception of Joshi, whereas Hokuto was the total package as she had the grittier attitude and prowess of a consummate in-ring general. I know determining which women is debatable, but for me, the answer depends on overall influence each athlete has and the significance left from each wrestler's respected accomplishments.

I am re-dling this comp, and rewatching a bunch of the later matches, as I never finished this blog review of this dvd comp in my part-time, too lazy to update, blog.

I saw a set of dvds that had TONS of Manami Toyota matches and I started to think...

a few days ago i Heard a wrestling show that the host thought the Undertaker was the #1 wwe star, because of longevity, star power, change of style, years on top, etc.

Does Manami Toyota's career sorta emulate Undertaker's in that way?

Personally I dont think Undertaker is the #1 guy in WWE wrestling history, its probably Bruno or Hogan. But Undertaker would probably go in the top 5? Maybe, after this guy kinda sold me on Takers career and his versatility.

I guess the best question I can come up with is, is Manami Toyota greater to joshi then Undertaker is to WWE?

I know thats weird but hats whats I got in my head this bright early morning before work.

I rate taker about #5 in WWE history.

Anyways, food for thought.

Whoosh.

I'm just mocking the audacity of you, of all people, trying to paint others as creeps for buying a readily available photobook, while at the same time bragging about personally asking a wrestler for nudes on twitter.

Did that really need an explanation? We know Manami doesn't have Twitter.

I knew what you were talking about, I was merely noselling it, as you basically waited to even respond til you were able to dig up any dirt on me which is trolling and pathetic. And I was merely joking around with friends about how Devitt was posting pics literally saying THIS IS MY ASS with his ass hanging out of it, and I joked with him to up the ante, and moon the camera instead. Hardly asking for nudes from wrestlers.

And I wasn't painting you as a creep for buying a photobook, I was painting you for bragging about it and basically rating on how a porn is on a wrestling board.

Wait? You do or say something creepy nearly every single day. No digging required. I just hadn't seen it to respond to it (and kudofanatic seems like too nice a guy to). I don't quite see how responding to your asinine, hypocritical, and pathetic attack on myself and kudofanatic is 'trolling.' Well, unless 'trolling' = calling you on your shit in a way you have no response for.

"basically rating on how a porn is"

As ignorant as this comment is (is that supposed to be ranting? since when is B.Bomb porn?!), even if it were true you have ground to talk because, as I said, you do things that are actually creepy every day. Because normal people like porn; it usually takes a creep to ask wrestlers for nudes on Twitter, then brag about it.

Wasn't asking for nudes. Wasn't bragging either. Was simply joking around with a friend about something ridiculous I did. And Devitt was the one who posted about his ass and posted pics of it coming out of his trunks. I said something back. You don't know me well enough to call me out on such things, and you come off the exact same way from what I've seen you post here and on the Shimmer boards. You seem to love arguing no how meaningless the point is, and I just can't bring myself to care about any of it anymore. Good day.

Negged for being a troll.

You goad people into arguments with your "wit" then when they come back at your pathetic baiting they get in trouble. What a child you are. A child that doesn't understand humor. Go rate porn/photobooks, start pointless arguments (about people you don't know) then act above it all, whatever floats your maladjusted boat. Come back when you are able to discuss a wrestling match or a wrestler without becoming a big baby about WON rankings or some shit like that. ...or totally miss the point because you're a shallow thinker.

Negged because that's all the power someone like you has. Clearly ELPS tried to start the shit here, and you only make yourself look completely devoid of honesty by suggesting otherwise. You can't try to call me out for making a one sentence post about a photobook, even when you lie about it being porn, when a few weeks ago you felt the need to tell the world how wet a wrestler made you every time you posted. That's not even getting into posting pics of Naka oiled up and what have you. It'd be one thing to hear this nonsense from people who were actual prudes, but you're pervier, some would say creepier, than anyone here. You only become a puritan when you're angry about something else, like Ayumi being cute or Manami being a better wrestler than Hokuto.

People creeping outside the glass windows of wrestlers shouldn't throw stones.

Post by: 孤星 on December 08, 2010, 06:43:33 PM
You picked a fight with ELPS for no reason. You went out of your way to start something. And over a joke, too. You are a petty.

Edit: Also, when in the hell did I tell everyone how wet a wrestler made me every time I posted? I'm going to need specific examples because I rarely ever say anything outside of "Shinsuke is my god/ TanTan really likes Kamen Raider <3". So please.. .enlighten me.

Or are you talking about a one time name change in reference to Oni saying something disparaging about all the women in the audience cheering for Tana? Cause that's totally not the same thing. In fact, the name itself was a name he'd given to those women.

Lame.

"I was being creepy ironically."

We know if someone changed their name to "Bulging Pants Ayumi Mark" you'd have a rant about it, since you rant about people who only mildly like her. No one cares if you publicly drool over oiled up pics of dudes or ask wrestlers for nudes. Just don't do that then come here and try to call nice guys like kudofanatic creeps or lie about Toyota doing porn. I don't care how angry you are at me or Ayumi or Toyota or whoever, that's just being a piece of shit.

King of Joshi did the t-shirt, and Manami wore it proudly all weekend. The kicker was the unofficial afterparty, where she wore the t-shirt to that! Very cool.
RudoCousin aka ShuperCousin made the doll and designed the banner. She loved both. The pic you see here, she actually asked to have that pic taken so it could be sent to her.
Then i gave her a 67 DVD set of her career. She couldn't believe it and said she would cherish it because she didn't have that stuff.
She's just like King of Joshi's shirt says, she's the greatest.

And "workrate" is an undefined smark term that is equally subjective.

Not to quibble, but the term workrate was co-opted by smarks to make themselves seem more "smart"...it actually comes from the boys in the back who wanted to seperate themselves from the "less-is-more" old style psychology by saying that they have a "high workrate" style.

But leave it to smarks to....you know what, I'm not even going to finish that staement because this is a thread to praise Toyota and not piss on the worthless

I'll tell my experience. Manami has been my favorite wrestler, men or women, since I first saw her on videotapes.

When i was living in Japan, I had a chance to rent many videos of All Japan Women, and I copied everything that I could. I ended up making a Manami tape of my favorite matches. Then I got the chance to see her wrestle a few times in Tokyo, and I gave her a copy of the tape I made, and she was very cool about it. She insisted I take a few free 8 x 10s of her, even though I tried to give her money she wouldnt take it. Very nice of her, she didnt have to do that.

So after that experience, i set about collecting as much video footage as I could, and I started making a DVD set. As of now, this set is 67 DVDs of Manami from her very first day of audition in Jan 1987, thru 2003 in GAEA. As a wrestling fan, my dream was to give Manami a copy of this set. I had the DVDs in an album, with all the matches listed for each DVD. I had 3 copies like this, one for me, on for Manami and I gave a set to SDR.

So I was all set to give this to Manami at the Chikara shows. I knew I would have just a moment or two to give them to her and say a couple words about it to her and then i would have to move along for the next customer in line. And that was fine, I just wanted to give it to her.

I arrived in Philly to our hotel early Friday morning (I flew a red eye flight overnight) and i arrived too early to check in, so I had to wait for a couple hours in the lobby. I was just sitting there on my laptop, and noticed Shinzaki, Dick Togo and another Japanese man with them, and they went up the elevator. A few moments later I realized that the other guy was The Great Sasuke without his mask. Kind of neat moment to myself.

As i sat there, i noticed someone walk by and it was Manami! She was staying at our hotel. Now, i could have just let her be, but this was my dream. So i approached her and said "Sumimasen!" and she turned around and stopped, and we exchanged pleasantries, I told her I was a fan of her wrestling and that I had some gifts for her at the show. I asked if I could have a photo and she said yes. My phone took a fuzzy picture, and she asked if I had a camera, which i did, and I said I would wait until she came back inside if she liked. So she went outside and I was able to go into my suitcase and get the DVD album and the dolls that Shuper had made.

When she came back in, I showed her the DVD set and she was honestly taken aback that I had compiled a set that took me literally 5 years to make. She went thru every page of the album with me and was smiling and excited about the matches. She said she didn't have any of this stuff, so she was happy. She also loved the doll that Shuper made for her and signed one for him. THen we took a picture together and one of her with her doll. Then she went upstairs in the elevator.
That for me, as a wrestling fan, was one of the greatest moments I could have ever imagined.

Not long after, Mike Quackenbush came to pick her up and the Michinoku guys. Manami came back inside and went back upstairs, I was trying not to glance, but you know, you can't help it when one of your heroes is there. She came back down and gave me a pair of socks!! They have a Samurai on them, I am assuming she was giving them to her friends as gifts, she had a bag with more of them...but she gave me a pair! She didn't have to, but it was so cool of her to do that! These are forever my lucky pair of socks that i will wear for anything important.

The next day at the 2nd show of the weekend, I bought some pictures from her and we took a pic with the banner that Shuper designed. and She signed the banner.

Well after the show that night, Hyperion and I ended up going to a bar with SouthSide Mike, that other fans were going to and some wrestlers. It was an unofficial afterparty. After about an hour, there was some rumbling and someone said Sasuke was there, and Manami. After they had been there for a while, we went to the area, Hyperion had a friend of his that was the interpreter for Manami and Sasuke, so he was speaking to her and I said what the heck, I asked Manami "Nani nomu?" and she said Hello, and she was drinking vodka and orange juice. So i asked her if she wanted another and she said yes. So i got to buy my hero a drink! I gave her the drink and we did "kanpai!"and she asked me if we could get another pic the with the banner at the next show, because she wanted a pic for herself! As i was leaving her area, I asked her if i could have a hug and she gave me one :)

So yes, I'm marking out for my own personal highlight as a wrestling fan. I don't know what else could compare for me personally. She was in good spirits at the bar, speaking to fans and wrestlers and having a good time.

She's the greatest of all time  *approve

Here are my Manami socks, a few minutes after she gave them to me.

Actually DD and its fans are typically very respectful of Joshi and their accomplishments. Wish the same could be said of every place. In fact, if you crunched the numbers, you'd probably find the visiting Joshi have had more DD fans/staff show up for them than any other place.

thanks so much for your story. it's fans like you and all joshifans forum people who go to the shows when they visit.u.s.a and show them just how much we love there work and effect these women put into each show. when l move to japan in september it is going to be my goal to meet Manami . lts great to read such a positive story about one of your heroes and l'm glad they know we do really care about them. l go on this site everyday even though( l don't comment too much )to see whats happening and l can feel the "love" that everyone has for joshi. thank you 22nijuni for sharing you memories with us all.
Thanks for the kind words. I have no doubt you will love living in Japan. I lived there for 6 years and things are moving towards me living there again next year. Some of the board members have been to Japan several times and even plan on moving there themselves.
I'm sure if you visit the board a lot, you'll notice that it's rare that we all get along, but you will always find someone that can answer any of your questions.

That was pretty interesting to read, I got a kick out of her answers about wanting to face Yamada in the future and beat her since obviously in hindsight those are pretty amusing.
