7/24 WAVE Results
WAVE wrapped up their annual Catch The WAVE League today, results from Shinjuku Face:
They claimed 469 paid (overflow).
Catch The WAVE League Loser Revival Survival Match: In what basically was a 10 woman battle royal with everyone starting all at once, Kana won in 8:28, last eliminating Nagisa Nozaki.
At this point, Shu Sibutani appeared to announce the opponent for her return match on 8/28-AKINO.
GAMI & Nao Komatsu beat Tomoka Nakagawa & Sawako Shimotsuke in 10:13. Komatsu pinned Shimotsuke.
Moeka Haruhi & Mio Shirai beat Mika Iida & Io Shirai in 8:24. Mio pinned Iida.
Catch The WAVE League Semifinals:
Misaki Ohata beat Toshie Uematsu in 13:38.
Kana beat Kagetu in 9:48 by submission.
Yumi Ohka, Bambi & Nagisa Nozaki beat Sakura Hirota, Ayumi Kurihara & Ryo Mizunami in 10:09. Ohka pinned Hirota after a heel drop. According to my translation, Hirota was dressed up as a soccer player, no doubt paying homages to Japan’s recent victory in the Women’s World Cup. After the match, Ohka apparently allowed Nozaki into her Black Dahlia faction.
Catch The WAVE League Finals: Kana beat Misaki Ohata in 10:14 to win the tournament.
After the final match there were prizes awarded:
For winning, Kana gets a gold medal, trophy & 1 million yen.
Mika Iida gets the Fighting Spirit Prize.
Mio Shirai gets the Outstanding Performance Prize.
Tomoka Nakagawa gets the Technique Prize.
Yumi Ohka vs. Ayumi Kurihara from 5/29 was named Best Match.
Nao Komatsu gets the Best Performance Prize.
Misaki Ohata gets a silver medal.
Toshie Uematsu & Kagetu both get bronze medals.
Finally Kana got to talk and it led to her ultimate endgame-a singles match against Ayumi Kurihara. That will happen on 8/28 at Korakuen. GAMI also announced a tag team league that is expected to start on 9/4 in Osaka. More on that as it becomes available.
