8/17 WAVE Results
After their “Black” event yesterday, WAVE ran the “White” event today, results from Shin-Kiba 1st Ring:
They claimed 195 paid (sellout).
There was a press conference before the event began, focusing on matches for 8/28 at Korakuen including the signing cermony for the JWP Jr. Title & POP Title match of Sawako Shimotsuke defending against Nao Komatsu. GAMI also announced that Yumi Ohka would miss the 10/9 event. She’s headed to the US for the first time in October, including working SHIMMER on 10/1 & 10/2. It’s not known when she’ll return to Japan.
After this was the live performance by J-Pop girl group AeLL (it stands for “Activity eco Live with Love”), featuring one of my favorite younger gravure/bikini idols, Ai Shinozaki. They performed 3 songs then stayed around to watch the event.
Nao Komatsu & Kyoko Kimura beat Sawako Shimotsuke & Tomoka Nakagawa in 15:37. Kimura pinned Shimotsuke after a big boot.
Toshie Uematsu, Ran Yu-Yu & Ryo Mizunami vs. Kana, Mio & Io Shirai went to a double countout in 16:42 (Uematsu & Mio counted out).
Ai Shinozaki beat POK Champion Ayumi Kurihara 2-1 to win the title. Shinozaki becomes the 3rd POK Champion. You know I love that…even funnier, one who claims to be the top idol lost to another idol herself! And once again another one with bigger bouncy-bouncys no less. HAHAHA. Kurihara asked GAMI for an immediate rematch afterwards. DENIED. This does mean there’s a chance we see Shinozaki defending it outside of wrestling, and I even read Shinozaki got to “participate” in the main event. I demand a Shinozaki-Yuzuki Aikawa rear end sumo wrestling match now! Make it happen GAMI!
In a Lumberjack Punishment Death Match, Yumi Ohka, Misaki Ohata & Cherry beat GAMI, Moeka Haruhi & Sakura Hirota in 15:49. Ohka pinned GAMI after a big boot. And Shinozaki did at least briefly get involved, I understand she joined some of the others in bopping GAMI with foam baseball bats.
