TJPW held their Osaka Show on Saturday, which was main evented by an International Princess Title Match. Miu Watanabe defended her belt in a great match against Moka Miyamoto, who is one of TJPWs least experienced Wrestlers. It was the biggest match of Moka’s career and had a great performance but in the end, came short after Miu hit the Tear Drop for the three count. After receiving the “All Elite” Graphic, Willow Nightingale made her Japan debut, teaming with Yuka Sakazaki against Maki Itoh and Yuki Kamifuku. Willow fit in perfectly from the very moment and had a fun performance. Willow won the match by pinning Yuki Kamifuku with the Doctor Bomb. It was also announced that Yuka Sakazaki will make her first defense of her Princess Of Princess Title against a Wrestler from the United States that will make her Japan debut. It is yet to be revealed who Yuka will face.
Miu Watanabe (c) vs Moka Miyamoto (29/10/2022)
On October 24th WAVE had a Korakuen Hall Show with only one match. A Battle Royal to find out the next No. 1 contender for the Regina di WAVE Championship, which is held by Hikaru Shida. 35 Wrestlers from different companies took part in this massive match. In the end, only Risa Sera and WAVE’s own Yuki Miyazaki were left, with the Miyazaki pinning Risa Sera to win the match. The Title Match between Shida and Miyazaki will happen on November 6th.
Performer Of The Week
There is no one better to represent STARDOM in the United States than the Icon Of STARDOM herself. Mayu came to the US for one match only and had a great performance against King. She was motivated, showed out and got the crowd on her side from the very beginning and all that in a difficult card position after a great match from Suzuki and Clark. Her performance in this match wasn’t the best because it was good, but rather because it was an important performance. A performance that represented what STARDOM stands for on a platform where a lot of people never saw her or the promotion.
Match Of The Week
Miu Watanabe’s International Princess Title defense against Moka Miyamoto is this week’s Match of the Week. Miu is on a great run right now with having banger matches after banger matches, and that didn’t stop here against Moka. It was the biggest match of the young career of Moka and she showed out well here. A great performance by her that makes you want to see more of her and showed that she belongs in spots like this. A great start to hopefully a long reign of Miu Watanabe.
