FUKUOKA ISLAND CITY FORUM
WATCH: STARDOM WORLD
It’s day 16 of the GP so the one individuals left studying are absolutely the sickos who’ve additionally watched each match of this event or the sane of us who need to cherry-pick the most effective matches to observe. We’ve got a nice-looking lineup of event matches this day trip with Hazuki vs. Natsupoi in a assured heater and Maika vs. AZM in an influence vs. velocity kinds conflict.
UNDERCARD RESULTS & THOUGHTS
Mei Seira def. Waka Tsukiyama
Momo Watanabe, Ruaka & Starlight Child def. Hanan, Koguma & Saya Iida
Megan Bayne & Suzu Suzuki def. HANAKO & Utami Hayashishita
MIRAI & Saki Kashima def. Mariah Could & Mina Shirakawa, Saori Anou & Yuna Mizumori
Utami and Megan. That’s all. Aside from that this was one other undercard with out the massive stars who’re getting some much-deserved days off and never a lot else to know onto from a storyline standpoint exterior of MIRAI and Kashima working effectively collectively and getting a key win.
TAM NAKANO (9) DEF. AMI SOREI (4)
This was a fairly vital match in Nakano’s hopes of successful her block so she needed to intestine one out towards the roadblock that’s Ami Sorei. They performed into what each ladies excel at with Sorei taking the lead and beating down on the world champion till it was time for her comeback. Neat little match to present the group the prospect to root for babyface Tam with Sorei doing a little strong work on prime. ***1/4
HAZUKI (8) DEF. NATSUPOI (9)
One other huge match within the pink stars block as two of the chasing pack behind Natsuko Tora duked it out. Hazuki has had the beautiful apparent story of the early dropping streak so she got here into this one as the favourite to run the gauntlet and get herself again into competition by the ultimate day when she takes on Tora in what seems to be an enormous matchup.
They each wrestled this one prefer it was an enormous match, displaying numerous grit to struggle by an onslaught from their opponent. Hazuki was actually on her sport channelling her pre-retirement Oedo Tai spirit together with her work on prime, offering probably the most egotistical beatdown of Poi that I’ve seen in a bit. As she tends to do, Poi fired again up and had an excellent efficiency because the underdog.
It will likely be powerful for this match to face out being so late within the event however it’s proper up there with the most effective matches of both lady’s event. Hazuki’s huge win evens issues out within the block and units up Natsupoi to upset and eradicate Tam Nakano on the ultimate night time whereas Hazuki stays alive forward of her collision with Natsuko Tora. ****1/4
MAIKA (7) DEF. AZM (6)
This was the primary match of this GP the place I used to be begging for it to tug me in and wow me however it simply didn’t. We’ve seen a significantly better variation of the AZM vs energy wrestler on this identical event which makes this one much more unimpressive compared. There have been some good moments like AZM’s counter of the superplex however all in all I used to be left wanting much more from this one.
This win retains Maika in a fairly robust place in her block, from her 6 matches she’s managed to choose up 7 factors, that means there’s nonetheless a complete 6 factors on the desk for her to choose up from her remaining matches. She might be one to observe as we enter the ultimate stretch of the event. ***1/2
A reasonably forgetful night time of GP motion buried in a stretch of 4 exhibits in seven days on the tail finish of the event. Perfectionists can have a superb time with this one as Hazuki vs. Natsupoi was nice and the primary occasion was sub-10 minutes however it was additionally one of many first exhibits with some actually underwhelming matches.
