Ready for “Gakenohuchi Puroresu”? I’m sure Miyako Matsumoto hopes you are. SportsNavi reports she will launch her new wrestling promotion this Friday with her first event at Isami Wrestle Arena. There will be only one match-Miyako vs. Tsuyoshi Kikuchi. Looks like Miyako’s handling all the aspects of the event herself, including sponsorship and promotion. She’s also created the promotion’s official website, which is at this URL (in Japanese):
Miyako has also written about the match and how she came to choose Kikuchi as her opponent on her personal blog (ameblo.jp/matsumoto-miyako), likening her revolting against Emi Sakura in Ice Ribbon to legendary wrestler Genichiro Tenryu against Jumbo Tsuruta. And so the “Miyako Revolution” begins Friday with her first “GakePro” event. Good luck Miyako!
