SENDAI 7/22/07 - Ayane Mizumura vs. Chisako Kanari
Mind wasn't here for the first minutes, but when it finally did turn on I saw a pretty decent match from these two. First time seeing Mizumura and I'm impressed. She was pretty nice here and did a bit more move wise than I thought she would since she debuted later than the other girls. Loved the submission she kept using and how she would roll away from the ropes to keep Kanari centered. Will be interesting seeing how she grows. **
JWP 8/26/07, JWP vs. SENJO - Tojuki Leon vs. Yurie Kaneko
This is actually a rematch from last year here Tojuki was constantly several steps ahead of Kaneko. This was a fair amount more competitive with Kaneko showing some growth and having some nice counters. She gave a good fight, but in the end she still couldn't match the experience and strength of Leon. **1/4
JWP 8/26/07, Openweight Title - Azumi Hyuga (c) vs. Amazing Kong
I don't like Hyuga, but I think she's a good wrestler and I can enjoy her work. Herer though I really thought there was just way too fucking much of her in this match. She was bad here. She hit her moves nice and all, but she dominated AK to a ridiculous extent in the first half and didn't really let AK get much in even during the second where she was bleeding badly. It just made AK look very bad considering she's supposed to be a big monster. Nothing came off as truly big or dramatic here because of this. Just could not enjoy this one at all.

Some nice stuff shown, but this is way to clipped to hell.
Chickfights 10/7/07, AWA Japan Women's Title - Jaime D (c) vs. Saki Maemura
D has improved a fair amount and makes a good cocky monster. Sadly she hasn't been on nearly enough tours, nor did the crowd have nearly enough faith in Saki to give a damn about this. Decent match I suppose, but it would have served better for Saki to put up more a fight even if she failed nearly every comeback. I wouldn't mind them booking Jaime or Tracy more in the future.
Chickfights SUN 10/7/07 - Hikaru, Masato Tanaka, & Lingerie Mutoh vs. Aja Kong, Kohei Sato, & American Balloon
Its great how the Z1 guys have finally figured out to work with the women the same way they do in AAA which is basically equal footing. That made this match more fun with stuff like Aja vs. Masato and Sato disregard for Hikaru's health (she got knocked the fuck out by either his German suplex or running knee at the end). Also first time seeing American Ballon and he is actually pretty good. I'm guessing he actually went with the comedy gimmick purely because of his physical looks which is kind of sad. Lingerie Mutoh was kind of pointless here. Could worked out just as well, if not better as Sawa. Anyways a fun match. ***

Wanted to like this, but it was just too long and nothing really kept my interests fully.
