So in recent news, Arisa won back the JWP title from Kyoko Kimura (who beat her for it back in October) at their November Korakuen show (she's also now tied with Azumi Hyuga for most reigns with the JWP Championship at four). After the match, Arisa announced she will be leaving JWP to become a freelancer! Hanako Nakamori came out and made a challenge for the belt on their year-ending show at Korakuen on December 28th, which will also be Arisa's final match as a JWP wrestler.
Rabbit Miu also announced that she is retiring after December's show as well to get married.
This is a pretty big loss for JWP, Arisa has been their ace even since she came back in 2012 and won the belt almost immediately, and it seems likely that Nakamori will win the belt but I'm not she really has the "it" factor Arisa has to carry JWP. Manami Katsu is obviously being groomed to be the next Hyuga/Nakajima of the promotion but who knows how long it will take before she's ready. Sucks to see Rabbit retire too, I'm not sure if she ever would've won the JWP belt because of how small she is, but she's a great worker and one of JWP's best young wrestlers.
I'm not sure what Arisa's plans are going from here, maybe she'll join SEAdLINNNG since she's become a regular over there or maybe (hopefully) will show up in STARDOM. Hell, maybe she even wants to get into WWE with the success Kana has been having over there and the rumors of Io and Hojo being offered contracts as well as the rumored international women's tournament being in the works.
