Size Matters Not. Or does it? Yes, anytime the Japanese wrestling websites-at least SportsNavi and sometimes Daily Sports-mention Yuzuki Aikawa they always mention her being a gravure idol, H cups and of course the famed 100cm busts. Perhaps there’s a hint of envy from the woman on the right here-Ayumi Kurihara, who will face Yuzuki in the main event of Yuzupon Matsuri 3, Yuzuki’s next self-produced event on 5/15. And what a birthday present it could be for Yuzuki, as the day after (5/16) is her 28th birthday. Now it’s well-known on certain forum boards that I have a reputation for disagreeing with the thought that Kurihara is the next great hope in joshi (seriously, she’s not) so you know I’ve already drawn the battle lines. And I’ve even got the song picked out-“This Is War” aka Takashi Sasaki’s ring entrance theme. Never underestimate the power of the bouncy-bouncys, haha.

Update: 2 more items from today’s presser:
The latest 5/15 card:
TKG48 (DDT) Offer Match: Sanshiro Takagi & Munenori Sawa vs. Danshoku Dieno & Michael Nakazawa
Stardom Offer Match: Nanae Takahashi vs. Arisa Hoshiki vs. Eri Susa in a 3-way
Yuzupon Birthday Eve Festival Dream Match: Yuzuki Aikawa vs. Ayumi Kurihara
There likely will also be performances by some amateur dance groups.

And there will be even more in the future. Yuzuki’s 4th event in the series will be on 8/21 at Shin-Kiba 1st Ring. Let’s see what she comes up with for poster #4, but the poster for this one will be hard to top…I can’t help but post it again:
