I think Arisa at east participating in the rumored WWE tournament is likely. I'm hoping she shows up in Stardom.

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.
Wrestler Love / Re: Aja Kong, stiff kicking ass and taking names since 1986

Something I finally was finally looking for. CCTV sat down with Aja Kong to talk to her about growing up in Japan being mixed race in English.

Here's the description from the video.

This episode of Assignment Asia brings you three stories about identity. First, the story of a musical duo of brothers whose parents come from very different backgrounds – the result of which is reflected in the diversity of their music. Then we meet a professional Japanese female wrestler known by many as ‘Aja Kong’. She tells us her story about growing up as a mixed-race child in Japan and transforming herself into a powerful role model.

You could always check the the Real Hero Archive as a lot of Joshi puroresu is uploaded.

JWP (as well as Ice Ribbon) really should get on board with streaming services like STARDOM and WAVE. It sucks that all of their major shows have been regressed to a single camera. Plus it'd just be a nice place for them to put their old stuff from the 90's through to the Hyuga era in the 00's. Some of their best shows and matches from those years can't be found online anymore unless someone uploads them (which never last long anyway).

You can stream Samurai (Fighting TV) and GAORA live there.

Welcome. Its nice to see the occasional new member. Samurai & Gaora may not be available, but NJPW, WAVE, & Stardom do have websites which you can stream shows from.

So, I just joined today. I have been a fan of joshi/women's wrestling for 11 years now? Maybe longer. I mostly like the stuff from Japan, but I don't mind watching some American/British indies now and then.

I wish there was an easy way to access Samurai TV and Gaora from the states. I've never miss a show, even if they do come like once every three months.

Bolshoi, Nakamori and Katsu will be representing JWP at CHIKARA's King of Trios this year. Pretty surprised Katsu is getting an oppourtunity like this so soon after returning over Nakajima or even Hagane or Rabbit. She's probably going to be pushed to the moon very quickly, just like Nakajima when she returned in 2012.
