Does anyone know the name of the song that Ayako used as her theme in 2006/2007 during her runs in NEO and SENDAI?

Agaru by Ketsumeishi

!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Best Friends/Thunder Rock is happening! I assume it will take place at IR's big show in Yokohama Gymnasium on 5/4.

Apparently Io & Mayu were booed.

Stardom 9/4/2015 - Rosa Negra & Hudson Envy vs Starfire & DASH Chisako
The inclusion of DASH Chisako is random as hell, but this match was a lot of fun. The segments between DASH and Envy were awesome; they were stiffing the hell out of each other. Rosa Negra and Starfire offered a nice prelude to their H-S title match (which unfortunately ended up being cut short due to injury). Negra is a gyrating, MMA-glove wearing, high-flying weirdo, but she has undeniable talent. ***1/4

Stardom 9/4/2015 - Io Shirai vs. Kaori Yoneyama
Another top notch edition of the Io/Yoneyama rivalry. Extra points to Yoneyama for being the only Stardom regular willing (or tiny enough) to take the Spanish Fly. ***

Stardom 9/9/2015 - Wonder of Stardom Championship: Io Shirai (c) vs. Queen Maya
This was a fun match. Io works underneath like she had throughout much of her reign with the White Belt, having to resort to working over the legs in Tanahashi fashion (DRAGON SCREWS included). Maya played her part as the 80s monster. The ending was marred by a botched frankensteiner, but I think they recovered decently enough. ***

Stardom 3/6/2016 - Saori Anou vs. Kairi Hojo
Solid showing for Saori Anou. She threw nice-looking stiff elbows and showed a bit more of her moveset. I look forward to seeing her growth as a performer and her upcoming match against Io. Hojo was great of course, though she stopped selling Anou's arm work completely as the match progressed. **1/2

Awesome news! She was a huge loss when she originally retired as it seemed obvious she would be the one to take over the ace position after Arisa.

Stardom 11/23/2015 - Hiromi Mimura vs. Act Yasukawa
Looks like Yasukawa left us a tiny gem before she retired. I dug her lazy heel approach to this match, which probably was not intentional given her injuries and such, but it helped in a "vet not taking the rookie seriously" way. She was oozing with arrogance. All poor Mimura could do was sell and try for the occasional comeback. ***

Stardom 11/23/2015 - High-Speed Championship: Mayu Iwatani vs. Kaori Yoneyama
Decent match, nothing special. I'd love to see these two have a Korakuen rematch somewhere down the line. Mayu's finishing combination was pretty sweet. **1/4

Stardom 2/21/2016 - High-Speed Championship: Mayu Itawani (c) vs. Evie
A match with simple storytelling made effective by Mayu's masterful selling. Evie (♥♥♥) was great here too, bringing a nice mean streak as she worked over her opponent's injured back. This was another fun edition to Itawani's H-S reign. **3/4

Stardom 2/21/2016 - World of Stardom Championship: Io Shirai (c) vs. Viper
Really solid speed v strength sprint. I liked how Io had to go the extra mile to keep the challenger down, whereas even the slightest offense from Viper could shift the momentum of the match. I thought the face/heel dynamic was strange, though. Viper's sympathetic facial expressions as the "monster powerhouse" was... different, but I suppose anyone facing the ace of Stardom is the underdog. ***1/2

Stardom 2/21/16, High Speed Title - Mayu Iwatani (c) vs. Evie
Kind of odd. I think Mayu hurt her back legit in this one, but despite some flubs from the damage it actually managed to add a lot of drama to the matcgh. Evie winning became a believable possibility and made for some good near falls and comebacks. Good match overall.

Stardom 2/21/16, Wonder of Stardom - Santana Garrett (c) vs. Kairi Hojo
The match was decent enough, but i still didn't feel much chemistry here. Santana just hasn't really adapted or even attempted to adapt to the style. Her stuff just doesn't work well with hard hitters who also happen to be half a foot smaller than her.

Stardom 2/21/16, World of Stardom - Io Shirai (c) vs. Viper
A simple power vs. speed & perseverance match. This was easily the bets Viper has looked in Stardom. Everything she did had some nice impact to it, and she spent most of the match with a bloody nose bit looking a bit more badass because of it. Io bumped around well and had some nice simple comebacks. the two just worked well together and built up some great moments. The finish was especially nice and makes me realize how ridiculously strong Io is. Damn good match that left me wanting to see more.

Pro Wrestling WAVE 12/25/15 - Meiko Tanaka & S a r e e e vs. Fafrotskies (Kaho Kobayashi & Rina Yamashita)
Really fun, fast-paced tag match from the young lions. S a r e e e e e e e e has evolved beyond the miniature Kurihara act to a solid worker. She's been hanging out with Natsuki and Nanae these days, and incorporating some of their moves into her offense, and even has Natsuki's smiling sun on her attire. I sense a defection from Diana. **

Pro Wrestling WAVE 12/27/15 - Regina Di Wave Championship: Ayako Hamada (c) vs. Yuu Yamagata
A well-paced epic, between two wrestlers who have great chemistry as tag partners and opponents. The match begins with matwork before they start firing on all cylinders. Yamagata has all sorts of neat tricks and counters that only a K-DOJO alumn would know, while Hamada is in a desperate struggle to retain her championship. It never ceases to amaze me how Hamada is able execute her rapid spin kicks so seamlessly, even while fatigued. High-drama action with a shocking ending. ***3/4

Pro Wrestling WAVE 1/3/2016 - Nanae Takahashi vs. Misaki Ohata
Since leaving Stardom, Nanae has been gracing WAVE with magical match ups like this. Enjoyable stuff from both performers; I always enjoy these straight-forward sprint matches. Ohata seems prone to winning the belt this year. Make it happen, FFS, GAMI! ***

OZ Academy 1/10/2016 - OZ Openweight Championship: Sonoko Kato (c) vs. Arisa Nakajima
There was tons of fuckery in this match (even Fujimoto makes a hilarious cameo). And MIO as the crooked referee adds a whole new layer of fuckery to OZ Sekigun affairs. But that's all par for the course in OZ Academy. The one shred of psychology I got from this match was Arisa not gelling well with her new stablemates her first match in the group, which results in a number of slapstick blunders. MK4vSeikigun has been highly entertaining. ***

It sounds like we'll be getting Ozaki/Nakajima for the Openweight title on the 4/3 Korakuen Hall show.

Interested to see how this plays out.
