Some pictures.  I think I would approve of a Meiko-Shuri feud for 2016.

Sachiko & Kimura have a strong relationship that was forged when Sachiko went on an expedition to Okinawa in 2011 when Kimura worked for Okinawa Pro.  This covered the time immediately after the earthquake/tsunami disaster, as Sachiko was in Okinawa when it happened.  Chisako ended up living and working with JWP at that time.



Iwata's gonna be the kicker.  I always wondered why Satomura didn't have a trainee that was a kicker.

Nerd villain--even if she's got a ways to go in the ring, I love the commitment to the character.  Feels kind of Uematsu-esque.



Jumonji Shimai



Chihiro bites off more than she can chew today.  Aja's no rookie.

This is awesome, Miyagi's now wearing a black Senjo uniform instead of red.

Future shows http://sendaigirls.jp/schedule/

As I would have predicted, Aja beats Chihiro and will be Meiko's first defense of the Senjo singles title, to take place at Korakuen in April. I think Meiko will retain and they'll build to a big defense at Sun Plaza in October.

I think Jumonji Shimai will defend the Senjo tag belts and Sachiko will retire with them.  I could see a one-day tournamenet at a future show to crown new champs.

I will fantasy book the final three of battle royale to be Meiko, Chisako, Sachiko.  Sisters team up to beat Meiko and then it's sister against sister for the final moments of Sachiko's career, with older sister getting the pin.

Stardom 12/6/15,  Rookie of the Year - Saori Anou vs. Hiromi Mimura, Starlight Kid vs. Jungle Kyouna, Hiromi Mura vs. Jungle Kyouna
Nothing particularly good here. Everyone debuted only in October and November so all are still pretty green. Does seem like Mimura's getting a bit better but seeing as I found her to initially be the worst that isn't much of a compliment. One thing I have to say is that while I like Kyouna's power gimmick it does feel less impressive against a kid/tween/teen in Starlight Kid and Mimura who is just so damn small.

Stardom 12/6/15, Artist of Stardom titles (vacant) - Shirai/Iwatanai/Watanabe vs. Matsumoto/Skater/Evie vs. Yasukawa/Kimura/Wolf
Generally goofy but fun with the occasional decent action. This was probably one of the more enjoyable matches for this title.

Stardom 12/23/15, Artist of Stardom - Hiroyo Matsumoto, Kellie Skater, & Evie (c) vs. Jungle Kyouna, Hiromi Mimura, & Momo Watanabe
Not a great match but decent with the rookies looking better than expected (ie not a total slaughter). Mimura is looking more comfortable and picking up her pace though again she is just so small with seemingly no power in any of her attacks. Even Kyouna seemed small next to all of Hyper Destroyers which might explain why she saw little time in this one.

Stardom 12/23/15, World of Stardom - Meiko Satomura (c) vs. Io Shirai
This probably has a bit of overkill, but damn was it great and probably at least on par with Meiko/Kairi from June the same year. The action was fantastic and the way the match built really does put over why Io is Stardom's ace. Meiko is still the force she was against Kairi & Mayu, but Io is just much more confident, willful, and fearless than they were. And the match builds into this idea well with what she survives and how much more momentum she builds with her comebacks over time. I also love the finish as a shout out and revenge for Kairi & Mayu's losses. Easily Io's best performance and match from 2015.

There's also a MARVELOUS USA and at one time they were holding try outs for the women who work in the NYC/NE area to go to Japan- dunno if they plan to keep doing that as the talent pool up there is different but you have the occasional Rosa Negra and *snaps fingers* the one that *did* make the cut and go to Japan-- she looks like Hania the Huntress but she's black. Was talking about it on tumblr with a girl who had hoped to have made the cut to go back to Japan with the company.

I'm not enthusiastic about Ozaki winning the JWP title in 2015 either, especially using her tired Oz Academy cheating schtick. 

Same old criticisms with no regard for the actual angle they're trying to do.

Marvelous:  This is Chigusa Nagayo's company.  Official members of the roster are Chigusa, KAORU, Tomoko Watanabe (who left DIANA), Takumi Iroha (ex-STARDOM) and Aki Shizuku.  Other regulars are the usual AJW veterans like Dump, Hotta, Shimoda, along with some of the Sendai Girls when their schedules don't conflict and people like Kyoko Kimura, Ray, Megumi Yabushita,
Alex Lee, and SAKI & MIZUKI (LLPW-X's Brilliant Battle Girls).

http://www.marvelcompany.co.jp/marvelous/index.html


They also have a couple of trainees and one of them, Mio Momono (17 years old, 5/30/1998, 149 cm), is going to debut in New York City, of all places, as
Marvelous seems to be running a show there on February 13th.  The other trainee is Kazumi Suguira (22 years old, 2/23/1993, 156 cm).

I'll try to catch up on 2015 results.

Aoi Kizuki will be resigning from Ice Ribbon on 1/9 (!!!).

She just made her WAVE debut and will debut for OZ soon so that'll probably be her future.
