Yukari "the Gentle Giant" Ohmori
« on: January 14, 2008, 02:09:54 PM »
I don't know too much about her, but I do know that she was in a good tag team with Jumbo Hori called the Dynamite Girls, and they had a good rivalry with the Crush Girls in their early phenom days.  Also, she was a former WWWA singles champ (as well as tag champ with Hori).  From what I've seen of her, she's a tough gal, and pretty underrated as a singles wrestler, I think.  I'm uploading one of her singles matches as I type, so if you know something about her, here's your chance...

Just watched her versus Chigusa in an IWA pacific and Big Red Belt, double title match.  She seemed pretty good.  Also, curiously, in that match she hits what looks near enough a Tiger driver '91 on Chigusa - in 1987 - which is pretty mental, although it is a little more like a Tiger driver tombstone :). 
I may drop you on your head

After retiring, Lioness Asuka tried to get her to return as a freelancer, but she became a stand-up comedian with Dump instead. She has two daughters now.

If you watch her younger stuff, she was really small and wore cute dresses. She morphed into a heavyweight.

Yeah, I remember seeing her with one of her daughters during the legends' ceremony at Dreamslam I, she was a cutie!  I wonder what she looks like now...

The pic I saw of her kids had their identity protected.

Interesting...  She was but a toddler at Dreamslam, but I can understand Ohmori wanting to keep unwanted attention from her children.
