7c. Amano pins Ozaki (6:04)
after using the Tequila Sunrise.
Amano retains the OZ Academy Championship and the position of Principal. Ozaki loses her hair.
Match #1: Whatever.
Match #2: Whatever.
Match #3: Apparently Masami said nice things about Kana after the match.
Match #4: It looks like Nakagawa might be a part of the Amano/Kansai faction now, as she seems to be Dynamite's protege much like Hiroyo is now Aja's protege. Isn't Yoshida enough for these girls?
Match #5: I'm guessing this isn't the last we'll see of these four together.
Match #6: Because of Ran's injury, it was made into a handicap match. Aja & Hiroyo prevented Police & Mika from interfering. Hiren WINS!!! Hiren WINS!!! OK, it sounds like she had little to nothing to do with the win, as Takako used the stun gun on Manami to allow KAORU to score the pinfall.
Match #7: Among the multitude of stipulations (no time limit, street fight, falls count anywhere, no count outs, no outside interference, Carlos can't use her Ghosn finisher), we didn't realize it was 2 of 3 falls. I'm happy Carlos won, as if Ozaki had won we'd just be back to a fairly dull state of OZ. Somebody should have put Amano over like this years ago, but Carlos wins everything: the title, control of the promotion, Ozaki's hair, and Ozaki's pride. I love Carlos using Mayumi's Tequila Sunrise to win the match since the Carlos Ghosn was banned. What a slap in the face!!!
