That reminds me of LinLin. They did a mini moni song that went TELEPHONE RING RING RING and she was like ARE YOU TALKING ABOUT ME?!

Her real name is Qián Lín so I think It's supposed to be Lin Bai Ron or something.

If her real name is Qián Lín, then it's pretty obvious that it's Lin. And in Japanese pronunciation it would be Bai-Ron.

I meant LinLin's real name is Qian Lin. So Lin is in fact a chinese character so it's completely possibly it's Lin. Bai's obviously a chinese character. It's just the Ron part I'm not so sure about.

Mandarin L=R in every other language, like Kapeng mentioned.

Edit: Looked it up out of boredom: Lin does exist in mandarin/pinyin but some people say "ren". It can be a name. So it is Lin, probably. So mandarin.

I think Lin is a pretty cool chick. She speaks Engrish and dosen't afraid of anything.

Does anyone know the name of her current theme song she uses in Smash? Thanks. She's supercool.

Looks like we spoke too soon about the "Artist Formerly Known as Ray" as BlackEye reported RAY is returning to pro wrestling.

She posted it on her blog - http://ameblo.jp/viva-ray/

Apparently she will be freelance now, no longer with S-OVATION and will make her return at the 2/5 Super FMW show in Shin-Kiba 1st Ring.

It will be Ayako Hamada & Ray vs. Kyoko Kimura & Hailey Hatred.


BlackEye makes a comment that maybe some of us knows she around other places too...

She's so mysterious. I wonder if she's really from HK? The Chinese characters on her costume @ SMASH is "林白龍" so it's supposed to be Lin Bai Long/Lon. According to the Weekly Puroresu special photo directory edition, her "real name" is "林梅龍" or Lin Mei Long. I couldn't find any records of such person, and I find it difficult to believe any Chinese parent would name their daughter this name, as 龍 (Dragon) is very much synonymous with males. I've seen a couple of HK posts about SMASH and her being from HK, and fans commenting that her wrestling name is very manly.

Anyways, I didn't know she's called the HK Typhoon:

Something about her passport being still valid but needing to renew it when she comes back from Mexico in October.  Guess Ray's heading out for some lucha libre.

I haven't watched SMASH in awhile so what her new gimmick about? What is the storyline behind the new heel character?

Michael Kovac's been leading her around by a chain collar.  She wears a black jumpsuit and hits people with a nightstick, and is billed as Lin "Bitch" Bairon.  I'm not sure if there's a technical name for it, but it's pretty awesome.  Lin's promos are gold.

"You just bitch, but I am beautiful Bitch!"

The lead-up to that Kana v Lin match at SMASH 18 was pretty awesome.

Awesome!  Though I might recommend people watch it soon, 'fore it gets pulled by some killjoy like that trailer SMASH put up earlier.

Pictures of Rays post-Ice Adventures party are up on her blog. Twenty-nine fans showed up which is really good when you consider that she announced the party just one week before the show and she's not really an Idol wrestler. Her blog is rated way up in Ameblos Sports category so she definitly has some admirers.
