Stardom 9/5/15, Goddesses of Stardom - Io Shirai & Mayu Iwatani (c) vs. Hudson Envy & La Rosa Negra
Hudson & Negra meshed well together as team making for some nice action all around from both teams. Good match.
Stardom 2/12/16, Goddesses of Stardom - Io Shirai & Mayu Iwatani (c) vs. Viper & Kaitlin Diemond
Plenty of good action and set ups with Viper in the power/monster role. Good match all around. Diemond isn't much on her own, but she definitely had her best performance here playing as Viper's support. Its the first time the two really impressed me as a team. I'm a bit disappointed they didn't have more matches like this one.
Stardom 2/28/16 - Viper vs. Jungle Kyona
Short match, but a really nice performance by Kyona mostly taking a beating but getting to bust out a few impressive moments.
Stardom 3/6/16 - Kairi Hojo vs. Saori Anou
I found this fairly reminiscent of the style Nanae used for passion injection matches where she would skip pure vet beat down, give the rookie plenty of offense, yet still finish the match handily to show who is superior. Always loved those matches and this is no different. Its the best I had seen of Saori look up to this point.
Stardom 3/12/16 - Hiroyo Matsumoto & Jungle Kyona vs. Viper & Kaitlin Diemond
Similar to Kyona's performance against Viper two weeks before, but longer and with Hiroyo acting as a decent support. Thought this was a nice little match with Kyona starting to show just a bit more what she is capable of in spirit and action.
Stardom 3/12/16 - Io Shirai vs. Saori Anou
Io wrestled this one a bit more grounded, showing some light dickish tendencies before Anou started to surprise her, forcing her to work harder to put a rookie down. I really dug this one. I'm generally fond of when Io works from a position of power, and Anou continued to impress with her struggles and spirit. I really wish Anou was contracted to Stardom as i could see them doing a lot with her.
Stardom 3/12/16, High Speed Title - Mayu Iwatani (c) Momo Watanabe
I thought this was generally solid, probably Momo's best performance, but it wasn't really a title worthy match. Momo is still a bit too lacking in strikes, offense, & spirit. Its still ncie to see her having grown a bit from the last year or two. Still I'm not certain two or three of the rookie who debuted last year won't surpass her in a another year.
