Pro Wrestling SUN held a press conference Monday to announce the main event for their July 12 Shin-kiba 1st Ring show. This will kick off a SUN vs JWP angle that I expect will continue through the summer with the likely payoff being an AWA World Womens Championship match between Nanae Takahashi & Azumi Hyuga. They've got three shows in August; Aug. 5 at Shin-kiba 1st Ring, Aug. 28 at the Nakaku Sportscenter in Nagoya City and Aug. 29 at Shin-kiba. They haven't announced a date for the first anniversary show but SUN president Nakamura has indicated that he will run some sort of gaijin tournament with the winner getting an AWA World Womens Championship shot. I think one of the wrestlers he's looking at for this is Jaime Dauncey AKA Sirelda in TNA.
This SUN vs JWP angle began when Azumi Hyuga appeared at ringside for the May 27 AWA World Womens Championship three way match. She had a staredown with Amazing Kong and Hyuga said that's who she was interested in. Of course Amazing Kong won't be in Japan for this upcoming show. As many fans are aware, she is now the NWA World Womens Champ. Meanwhile, the NWA is having an NWA World Heavyweight Championship tournament. In fact, Amazing Kong recently sent a video to the NWA wanting to enter that tournament. Guess what, fans? She's done that before. A couple of years ago when she started appearing in mixed matches for ZERO-ONE MAX, she wanted to enter a tournament that they were having. They turned her down and she will be turned down again especially since the brackets for the NWA tournament have already been set.
After Nanae Takahashi won the AWA World Womens Championship, Hyuga entered the ring and the two had a staredown. Hyuga challenged Takahashi and was turned down. On Sunday, JWP had a tenth anniversary show for KAZUKI at the Tokyo Cinema Club. Nanae Takahashi & Natsuki*Taiyo came to the show. Hyuga had just finished defending her JWP Open Weight Title. Takahashi grabbed the mike and congratulated Hyuga on her successful title defense but the match made her sleepy. Hyuga said "What are you going to do?" Takahashi said "Whatever I want." Hyuga suggested that Takahashi nominate a challenger for Arisa Nakajima's JWP Junior Championship and of course she nominated Natsuki*Taiyo. That match will happen on a JWP show. While Hyuga's attention is diverted, Amazing Kong entered the ring from the other side, nailed Hyuga with a lariat and stole the title belt.
JWP's reaction to this was to show up at Monday's press conference at the Pro Wrestling SUN office. JWP owner Commando Bolshoi was accompanied by Azumi Hyuga & Kayoko Haruyama. Bolshoi said "Is this the way SUN works? You need Amazing Kong to fight your battles?" Takahashi said she just wanted a response from JWP. Natsuki*Taiyo told Haruyama she already beat her so now she wants Hyuga. Haruyama called her a pipsqueak. Bolshoi said whatever SUN wants to do is OK with her. The specific matches weren't announced but Nanae Takahashi & Natsuki*Taiyo will represent SUN and Azumi Hyuga & Kayoko Haruyama will represent JWP. I think they might do a tag match first. Also, Manami Toyota will make her first SUN appearance against Saki Maemura.
