STARDOM “5-STAR Grand Prix 2021” results from Tokyo, Japan πŸ‡―πŸ‡΅ at Bellesalle Shiodome on 8/29/21 live on YouTube:


I’m not sure how long this show will be kept up to view on YouTube before it moves over to STARDOM World. It may have been a live only broadcast option. There is no commentary team.

AZM beat Hanan by arm bar submission in 9:00.

Momo Watanabe beat Mai Sakurai by submission with the chicken wing face lock in 8:31.

Fukigen Death pinned Himeka in 4:44 of a Red Block Match for 2 points. Bizarre finish as Himeka drove Death into the mat but Death popped right up and rolled Himeka up for the pin. Death has 2 points so far and Himeka has 0 in the tournament.

Future of STARDOM Champion Unagi Sayaka pinned Rina in 9:55 after her forward Gory Bomb finisher. STARDOM executive producer Rossy Ogawa was in the ring with the title for the championship match photo op before the match started. Rina attacked Sayaka before the bell. Sayaka ended up hugging her after the match. 


They announced the STARDOM offering matches yet to be announced for the New Japan shows on 9/4 and 9/5 at MetLife Dome will air on New Japan World. Their previous matches at New Japan shows were dark matches that aired on STARDOM World as VOD later.

Mayu Iwatani pinned Lady C after a Moonsault in 9:12. After the match, HAZUKI ran in the ring and got on the mic to speak to Iwatani in a big return angle. She retired from STARDOM on Dec. 24, 2019 but worked the Hana Kimura Memorial Show back on 5/23/21. I’m far from fluent in Japanese, but she told Iwatani she was back to inspire STARDOM. She then handed the mic to Iwatani and left the ring. Iwatani looked shocked and in deep thought to close the segment. 


Takumi Iroha pinned Maika after the Running Three  in a Blue Block Match in 13:45 for 2 points. Iroha has 2 points and Maika has 7 points in the tournament so far.

They announced a show in Osaka at Osaka-Jo Hall as part of the company’s 10th Anniversary celebrations on 10/9/21.

Skye Blue pinned Christi Jaynes with a bridging school girl cradle on the pre-show match.

May Valentine interviewed Melina on a set in the venue. Melina will challenge Impact Wrestling Knockouts Champion Deonna Purrazzo later. She said she wished her father was there to see her. Then the feed crashed. 

After some technical difficulties, NWA Empowerrr executive producer Mickie James came out to the ring to open the ppv. She said this night wasn’t about her then started talking about getting told “no” in the past about having another all-women’s show (a reference to her time in WWE). She said the whole thing was about inspiring little girls. She will face Kylie Rae on the NWA 73rd Anniversary show tomorrow.

DiamantΓ© won a 3-Way Match over Chik Tormenta and Kylie Rae by pinning Tormenta after her Code Red finisher, stealing the win from Rae with a distraction as Rae had Tormenta in the cross face submission.

Allysin Kay and Marti Belle beat Renee Michelle and Sahara 7 when Kay pinned Michelle after a double team pedigree finisher in a NWA Women’s Tag Team Titles Tournament semifinals match for the vacant titles. Non-stop action throughout with a mix of brawling and wrestling. 

KiLynn King and Red Velvet beat Miranda Gordy and Jazzy Yang (with Hollywood Haley J) in a NWA Women’s Tag Team Titles Tournament semifinals match when King pinned Yang after her Fallen Kingdom finisher causing Yang to land badly on her shoulder. 

May Valentine interviewed Kay and Belle backstage about the Women’s Tournament finals. Kay said she was the first person of the NWA modern era to hold the NWA Women’s Title and now could be the first to hold the returning tag titles in the modern era. Belle said she could be the first of Dominican Republic heritage to hold a legit recognized NWA Women’s Title.

Gail Kim came to the ring to cut a promo but was interrupted by Taryn Terrell, JennaCide, and Paola Mayfield (aka Blaze).Terrell is still doing a Beautiful People type gimmick in 2021. She said NWA is her territory and demanded Kim leave the ring. Kim refused so Terrell was going to send Blaze and JennaCide after her. Awesome Kong came out to back up Kim. She took out Blaze ant JennaCide as Terrell bailed out of the ring. As Kim yelled at the heels, Kong asked her to face her in the ring. Kong got on the mic and said she’s not much for words and it’s been a long year at her house. She said Gail Kim was the only person to get her off the couch to come back for anything. She said she loved Kim. Kim was crying and said she didn’t know what to say but she and Kong will always have a bound for life.

Impact Wrestling Knockouts Champion Deonna Purrazzo beat Melina by trapped arm and half crab combo submission. They were given lots of time. Melina walked out with help from the referee but she was limping.

Madusa came out to do guest commentary. They said she will present the tag team titles to the winners of the tournament.

Allysin Kay and Marti Belle beat Red Velvet and KiLynn King in the NWA Worlds Women’s Tag Team Titles Tournament finals match to win the vacant titles when Belle pinned Velvet after an assisted AK-47 finisher. Madusa brought in the tag belts and congratulated them. King and Velvet looked like they were going to attack the new champions from behind but ended up congratulating them and showing respect.

NWA owner Billy Corgan politely walked near the broadcast table looking a member of the crew. He held “The Burke” under wraps in his hand which is the NWA Women’s Title last appearing in the NWA in 1954. He had  Kyle Davis (who is doing ring announcing for the title matches) read a statement from him to the crowd about the history of the title and Mildred Burke. The Burke was unwrapped and brought in the ring to show the crowd.

Tim Storm joined the announcers as guest color commentary. Nick Aldis, Thom Latimer, and Chris Adonis were watching in the Bush Beer VIP section of the crowd to cheer on Kamille.

NWA Worlds Women’s Champion Kamille pinned  Leyla Hirsch after a spear. This was a great showcase for both. Hirsch stood on the top of the ring post and gave Kamille a twisted suplex off the ropes. She then followed up and gave everything she had including several German Suplexes and a shining wizard. She locked in the arm bar a couple times but Kamille powered out. Hirsch kept coming at Kamille nonstop and finally got caught with the spear.

Kamille went over to the VIP area to celebrate with Latimer, Aldis, and Adonis and acted cool and relaxed about surviving Hirsch. Trevor Murdoch got close and started yelling at Aldis to hype their match tomorrow at NWA 73.

The Gauntlet Match main event is next. 10 women. Two start off with someone in every two minutes. Pin and submission rules. The winner faces Kamille for the title tomorrow at NWA 73rd Anniversary live on FITE at 8pm EST.

#5- JennaCide (with Taryn Terrell)

The baby faces surrounded the ring while the heels stood on stage in the back. Mickie James, Gail Kim, Jazz, Madusa, and Awesome Kong applauded on stage. Green was given a trophy cup for the win.

This was a great show. Everyone worked their tails off. It wasn’t just the best American women’s ppv of all time (there hasn’t been many), it was the best NWA ppv so far under Billy Corgan ownership. It didn’t drag and all of the matches were good to great.

A few minutes before bell time, EVE owner Dann Read told the announcers that Skye Smitson hasn’t arrived to the building yet. He said if she doesn’t make it they will rearrange the card.

Dann Read welcomed the crowd. He said they lost one of their team during the pandemic. His name is Nick Lesslar. He was an EMT that looked after the crew. They gave a memorial tribute to him on the video wall.

Mercedez Blaze pinned Clementine after a spear off the second rope followed up by a rope hanging stunner.

Kasey set the chair up between the turnbuckles and whipped Jayne into it to knock her out of the ring to the floor. Back in the ring, Kasey gave Jayne a powerbomb off the ropes on the top points of  two set up chairs in the ring. She later brought out lemons and a bag of thumbtacks from under the ring. Jayne slammed her in the tacks and squeezed lemon juice on her back. They exchanged German Suplex into the tacks. Kasey sent Jayne face first into the tacks with a running double knee shot to the back of the head. Jayne powerbombed Kasey right in the tack pile. Jayne brought out a table from under the ring. Kasey recovered and hit the Killing Joke but did not go for a pin.

Eve International Champion Kasey pinned Emersyn Jayne after slamming her off the ropes into the table in the ring.

The announcers said Skye Smitson was stuck in traffic. The crew is cleaning up the ring. Dann Read said the next show is October 2 and it will stream live. He said Jetta might have a concussion after the attack by The Uprising and may not be in the Rumble. He said Smitson is late so the Rumble is next and The Gambler will be revealed whether Smitson makes it to the show or not at the end of the broadcast. This ends the free portion of the event.

Skye Smitson came out and started cussing at the crowd and about the company. The feed briefly cut out but when it came back on Charlie Morgan made a triumphant return from injury and was revealed as The Gambler.

Charlie Morgan pinned Skye Smitson after the Implant DDT. She looked glowing and refreshed in her return. She still is a daredevil and did a flop dive off a huge ladder on Smitson while brawling in the crowd. The baby face locker room came out to congratulate her. She cut a promo and said there’s only one Charlie Morgan and only one EVE. She thanked the crowd for coming back. She congratulated Jetta on winning the title. The two are a couple in real life. Jetta’s music played and Morgan put her up on her shoulder like Randy Savage and Elizabeth as fireworks went off.

The broadcast ended but there will be a meeting and greet and after party at the show for VIP Ticket Holders.

Mickey James officially announced Chelsea Green will be part of the all-women NWA Empowerrr pay-per-view on FITE on 8/28/21 from St. Louis and live on FITE. It confirms what we first reported on 7/28/21. 


Renegade Wrestling Revolution has postponed their 8/27/21 “Too Hot To Handle” event in Texas City, Texas, not only because of Green pulling off the card for NWA Empowerrr,  but we were told today “a few other girls” who were booked are apparently also going to be at NWA Empowerrr. Those names weren’t given to us, but here was the scheduled women’s matches for  “Too Hot To Handle”: 

Chelsea Green vs. Raychell Rose
DiamantΓ© vs. Rok-C
Jazmin Allure vs. Promise Braxton 
Vipress vs. Leila Grey 
Danni Bee vs. Mia Friday (originally planned as Danni Bee vs. Hollyhood Haley J)
Alejandra The Lion vs. Amber Rodriguez 

As far as the rest of the NWA Empowerrr show goes so far, the winner of tonight’s Leyla Hirsch vs. The Bunny match on AEW Dynamite will receive a title shot at NWA Worlds Women’s Champion Kamille at the pay-per-view. Unless there’s an upset, Hirsch is likely to go over because The Bunny has been in the roles of valet and glorified talent enhancement. The long vacant NWA Women’s Tag Team Titles will be decided in a match yet to be announced. Impact Knockouts Champion Deonna Purazzo will defend that title against a yet to be named challenger. Jamie Senegal (with Pollo Del Mar) and Tootie Lynn have also been announced for the show. Kylie Rae and JennaCide are also expected to be on it based on the event poster.

There are some people who are not happy with Mickey James’ involvement in the NWA now. She immediately made herself the face and top star of the NWA Women’s Division and NWA Empowerrr in her company debut after being released by WWE this year. She is the producer of Empowerrr but she is not scheduled to wrestle on the show. However, she will be in action the next night at NWA’s 73rd Anniversary pay-per-view event on FITE also in St. Louis against a yet to be named opponent. The feeling is that she’s overshadowing the rest of the women on camera and behind the scenes like her husband NWA Worlds Heavyweight Champion Nick Aldis has the reputation of doing in the men’s division. The running joke among some is “NWA actually stands for Nick’s Wrestling Alliance” and James is another authority figure version of Stephanie McMahon. NWA announcer Joe Galli worked as play by play announcer for some indie shows last month and he name dropped Mickey James and NWA Empowerrr countless times during the women’s matches of those shows even though James was not even at them. 




Alex Bliss’ Lilly Helping Out Chucky?


There is talk of the horror movie villain Chucky possibly popping up in some form on WWE Raw in the next couple of months to interact with Lilly, the demonic doll owned by Alex Bliss. The crossover appearance would be to promote the upcoming Chucky TV series. “Chucky” will be a SYFY channel show but the Season 1 premiere episode will air simulcast with sister network USA on 10/12/21 at 10pm EST.

Our sister website “Wrestling…. with Demons” was told that “Chucky” is finally scheduled to wrap up production next week. It’s being filmed in Toronto. Brad Dourif is once again the voice of Chucky. The show was delayed last year because of the virus pandemic. Commercials for the show have already been airing heavily during WWE Raw over the last few weeks as Syfy has high hopes for its success.

If Chucky does show up on Raw, it wouldn’t be the first time he’s done a crossover promotion in the world of pro wrestling. In 1998 he showed up on WCW Nitro to interrupt a Mean Gene Okerlund interview with Rick Steiner in the ring so he could plug “Bride of Chucky” released in theaters that year.


In other Lilly news, despite being panned by most pro wrestling critics, the character has been a hit for WWE Shop merchandise sales. The $30 plush replica of the doll sold out last month. It has been restocked as of this writing.

Starlight Kid pinned Saki Kashima in a Red Block Match after her Black Tiger PilefDriver finisher for 2 points in 8:46.

MPW will hit the road for a show in Greensboro, North Carolina on 8/14/21.

There will be a MPW benefit show for the San Antonio Salvation Army on 8/20/21. Thunder Rosa and her family have volunteered for the chapter on occasions over the years.

In the interest of transparency, Joshi Sun-Times is one of the sponsors of MPW “Play Hard, Hustle Harder”. We don’t not have any input in the booking or production of the event, it’s only a sponsorship and advertising opportunity for us.

RESULTS-

Robert Bayne beat JP Harlow by referee stoppage with choke submission hold. Bayne’s manager Kaitlyn Alexis distracted the referee to lead to the finish. This was a special men’s showcase match.

Dani Mo pinned Kenzie Paige after a running springboard crossbody block from the top rope cable.

Wilde got on the ring to try to interfere but fell to the floor after colliding into Vixen and JennaCide. JennaCide looked like she was about to pin Vixen when Allure scrambled back in the ring to steal the win. This was supposed to be a second round of a #1 con. Tournament with Alex Gracia vs. Allure and Vixen vs. JennaCide, but Gracia did not make it to the show. Allure had her own heel stable poster made up for the show.

MPW Champion La Rosa Negra pinned Holidead after the frog splash in an incredible match which earned a standing ovation. They were given lots of time. Negra did a torpedo dive on Holidead who was laid out in the front row. It looked amazing and it hit the target with no fans injured in the process. Holidead later grabbed her and swung her a couple of times into the concrete wall. Both are fan favorites so the crowd was split. After the match, Allure, The Renegade Twins, and Wilde came out to surround the ring. Madi Wrenkowski and Dulce Tormenta ran in to back Negra up. The heels didn’t attack and backed off.

The List Of Joshi Wrestlers With COVID-19 Continues Grow




It’s unfortunate and very disturbing that so many female pro wrestlers in Japan have tested positive for COVID-19 in just the past few days to the point that we keep getting more names added after we posted news on previous lists of names. 

Maya Yukihi of Ice Ribbon tested positive on 7/28/21 but she is asymptomatic. She will miss the 7/31/21 and 8/1/21 shows. Those shows are still scheduled to go on as on now with 7/31 available to watch live on Nico pay-per-view. Yukihi will be quarantined until 8/7/21.

Madeline who works for Diana, Pro Wrestling WAVE, Ice Ribbon, and Pure-J was not feeling well on 7/28/21 and tested positive. 

Legendary referee Tommy Ran tested positive as well but she is asymptomatic. Ran has been a referee since the early 1980s for numerous Joshi groups starting with All Japan Women’s Pro Wrestling when she was a teenager. She had been wearing a plastic face shield while officiating matches for Marvelous and WAVE since the start of the virus pandemic.

Momo Tani, Makoto, Chikayo Nagashima, and Itsuki Aoki also all tested positive recently.

Joshi Wrestlers Hit By COVID-19

 

There has been a serious surge of COVID-19 cases around the world over the last few days. Japanese pro wrestling is once again feeling the effects and it’s causing some companies to start to postpone shows while others are debating doing so all over again just like last year.

Ryo Mizumani is currently hospitalized  because of COVID-19. She had a fever and tested positive on 7/26/21. She has now started to develop pneumonia from it.

SEADLINNNG announced Nanae Takahashi and Honori Hana have COVID-19. Both tested positive on 7/26/21 as well,  but they are recovering at home. The rest of the roster was tested and tests came back negative.

Ami Miura of ActWres Girl’z tested positive for COVID-19 on 7/27/21 after complaining of a headache and fever the night before.

SEADLINNNG postponed their 7/26/21 show at Shinkiba 1st Ring. Sendai Girls postponed their 7/24/21 and 7/25/21 shows.

Chelsea Green To Work NWA PPV, Pulls Out Of Indie Show

 


Chelsea Green will be part of the NWA Empower women’s pay-per-view on 8/28/21 in St. Louis, Missouri at Chase Park Plaza.

Green was in the middle of a bizarre situation over the weekend at the Hurricane Pro Wrestling show in Beaumont, Texas. She faced HPW Cruiserweight Champion Miranda Alize and they ended up going to a Double Disqualification when they both assaulted the referee. Texas indie regular Raychell Rose was in attendance but she was not booked on the card. She began heckling and taunting Alize and gave her a double middle finger in an attempt to provoke Alize. This was not an angle or part of any storyline. Rose and Alize have had heat over the years during their time on the Texas indie scene. Allegedly, Alize responded by throwing a drink at Rose during the course of the evening. 

Rose was at the show with the promoter of the Texas based Renegade Wrestling Revolution group and at least one other individual. They were asked to leave because of causing a scene.

Ironically, Raychell Rose was scheduled to take on Chelsea Green in the main event of the Renegade Wrestling Revolution and Reality of Wrestling combined event on 8/27/21 in Texas City, Texas at Booker T’s World Gym Arena. Joshi Sun-Times was suddenly informed late last night by a few sources that Green has now pulled out of that show. It was being built all around her and it is titled “Too Hot To Handle” based on her “Hot Mess” nickname. As of this writing RWR, ROW, and Green have not made any public announcement yet.

https://titlematchnetwork.com/

NWA’s Joe Galli is play by play and Don Juan is the color commentator. Carolina Teague is the ring announcer. They have a nice broadcast area set up right on the stage.

Sledge pinned Casey Blackrose with a Blue Thunder Bomb.

Sunday, September 19 is the next show called “RCW Boom Boom” back here at The Grand Event Center.

RCW Phoenix Champion Christi Jaynes pinned Claudia del Solis after an Implant DDT. Galli plugged the NWA Women’s ppv which takes place next month. He said Mickey James is watching somewhere to scout talent for it.

RCW International Champion Anthony Andrews won a 3-Way Match over Brandon Vice and Trinidan by pinning Trinidan after a powerslam. Andrews’ heel manager Logan accidentally took out Vice on the floor in a lucky accident after colliding with Andrews on the ring while trying to interfere. Vice was not able to get back in the ring to break up the pin.

Gino Medina pinned David Kidd after hitting him in the face with a wrench. Don Juan was Kidd’s manager. He threw the wrench in for Kidd to use then distracted the referee on the ring. Kidd is a baby face and didn’t want to cheat so Medina took advantage of the situation.

NWA Worlds Women’s Champion Kamille Brickhouse pinned Amber Nova after the spear. This was a title match. Galli said Kamille just defended the title at The Gathering in Charlotte, North Carolina last night against Kenzie Paige. He really put over the NWA Worlds Women’s Title by saying it gets defended more often and in more places than the NWA Worlds Heavyweight Title. He said it was the “workhorse title”.

RCW Tag Team Champions DFW Kartel (Lou Gotti and Angel Camacho) beat Drew Who? and Luigi Primo when Camacho pinned Drew Who? after a Vader Bomb. Nastico was the manager of DFW Kartel.

Mysterious Q pinned Kaun after the Q Cutter.

RCW Women’s Champion Kiera Hogan pinned Rok-C with Face The Music. Christi Jaynes came out and taunted Hogan to tease being the next challenger. Kamille then came out and held the NWA Worlds Women’s Title up high. Kamille then walked to the back as Jaynes tried to rush at Hogan who was still in the ring. Referees came out to hold Jaynes back.

RCW Champion Fallah Bahh vs. King Rob Love was scheduled to be the main event but Gino Medina ran out and attacked them and the referee with a chair. He demanded to be put in the match as a 3-Way Match. RCW promoter Brandon Oliver approved it.

Gina Medina won the title by pinning King Rob Love after Eat Defeat. Medina hit Bahh with a chair to hurt him enough to where he couldn’t stop the pin.
