Meiko Satomura is the co-founder and current promoter/head of Sendai Girls and a 15-year veteran of puroresu. Like many veterans before her, she made her debut very young, first appearing in GAEA Japan when she was only 15. Success came fairly quickly for her, as she was just 16 when she won her first AAAW Tag Team Championship, followed by 3 tournament wins before she turned 19. Her first of 2 AAAW Singles Title reigns came in 2001, when she beat Aja Kong to begin a 6-month reign before losing to Chikayo Nagashima. From 2002-2004 she would have tag team championship runs with Ayako Hamada and Nagashima, then she would beat Hamada for her second AAAW Singles Title reign, a run that lasted just short of 1 year before she would be sidelined several months with an injury.
Satomura returned to action in 2005 shortly before GAEA Japan folded, defeating Nagashima in their final match for the promotion. Soon afterwards, Satomura relocated to Sendai and began the process of creating Sendai Girls. One year later, Sendai Girls ran their first event before a crowd of nearly 2500 fans. Satomura would defeat Aja Kong in her first match for her new promotion. Satomura helped build and expand the promotion over the next year before injuries would force her out again, this time for over a year, but she remained active in building and running the promotion. She returned to active competition in October 2008 and remains active in the ring to this day when she’s not injured. Also of note is that in 2000 she appeared in “Gaea Girls”, a 2000 documentary film on joshi puroresu, specifically GAEA Japan, produced by the BBC.
Satomura became President of Sendai Girls in July 2011 when promotion co-founder/President Jinsei Shinzaki stepped down and transferred control of the promotion to her in the hopes that she would be able to help the promotion grow and expand outside it’s homebase of Sendai.
