Just received the 10th Anniversary DVD of Mima Shimoda & it was GREAT
I knew she was gorgeous but the DVD showed how truly STUNNING she is
-There was a good mix of modeling & personal stuff from her trip to Bangkok...and, man, she looks FABULOUS in swimsuits & lingerie
-She does surf-gliding & also visits a zoo and rides an elephant, though she was VERY afraid of animals...Mima Shimoda, afraid
-There was also a nice segment of questions for her...unfortunately, had NO clue since my Japanese is VERY limited...but they showed clips of her early wrestling & it seemed that Akira Hokuto was her idol or teacher early on. They also showed a early clip of Mima teaming up with Manami Toyota from what seemed like the late 80s.
They did show a really interesting tag match...Mima Shimoda/Manami Toyota v Estuko Mita/Toshiya Yamada!! Not sure what year it was but it was 2 out of 3 falls & for the WWWA Tag Titles!! It was pretty wild seeing Manami beating up on Yamada but, even weirder, was seeing Mima & Estuko pound on each other
Only the first fall was shown in it's entirety & lasted 6 and a half minutes with Mima pinning Yamada after a back suplex from the top rope. The second fall lasted almost 6 minutes & ended with Estuko Mita hitting the Death Valley Driver on Toyota!! And the last fall lasted over 7 minutes & ended with Manami hitting the Japanese Ocean Cyclone on Mita for the win, 2 falls to 1 & the Tag Titles!! What was cool was the four ladies raising their hand together after the match, though Mita seemed a bit relucant
AWESOME DVD & a new appreciation and love for Mima Shimoda
