Joshi News: It’s Time For “Happy Hour” In September

No, it doesn’t involve cheap beer. SportsNavi reports “Happy Hour!!” is a new joshi promotion announced today by former joshi wrestler Hikaru, who retired in April 2009 and has since been a housewife-her husband, who she married in early 2009, is New Japan star Koji Kanemoto. But Hikaru herself has no plans to come out of retirement, just to run an occasional event. The first Happy Hour event will be on September 4 at Shin-Kiba 1st Ring, no further details were announced today. But a poster image posted by Ringstars via the Japanese-language Roppongi Guide blog (khjp.wordpress.com/events), which links to ZERO1’s Japanese website (Hikaru spent her final days in ZERO1 competing in a series of “Chick Fights Sun” matches with fellow retiree Saki Maemura), indicates scheduled participation including the Diana roster and Aja Kong among others, with Japanese bank AIB sponsoring the event. There also will be non-wrestling entertainment/performances. Here’s a first look at the poster via the Roppongi Guide:

Ringstars also reports a December event is planned as well, possibly at Belle Salle Roppongi.

More as it becomes available.

    Yeah, but Kong also works DIANA. The blonde one behind her I don’t know, the brunette is Rosie Lottalove from TNAW who recently started working for DIANA as Andrea Mother IIIRC. So I perhaps they’re all DIANA related.

    Aja Kong is affiliated with OZ Academy but I believe she maintains freelancer status, the other two on the right behind her are outsiders that I don’t know much about. And I’m no longer on that other site so that won’t work.

    Aren’t all the girls on the poster from DIANA, making this basically a DIANA event under a different brand name?
    And to the blogger, please get in touch with me, I messaged you on joshifans, but maybe that didn’t work.
