Pro Wrestling SUN held a press conference Thursday to add a couple of matches to their July 12 Shin-kiba 1st Ring show. Already announced as the main event is SUN vs JWP, Nanae Takahashi & Natsuki*Taiyo vs Azumi Hyuga & Kayoko Haruyama along with Manami Toyota vs Saki Maemura. Toyota wasn't at the press conference but sent a note that she is interested in wrestling Maemura because she hasn't faced her before. She probably worked with her during Maemura's training. She said she was in the ring with her at Momoe Nakanishi's retirement show and Toyota is interested to see how Maemura has progressed.
The AWA has announced that the AWA World Womens Championship has been retired to honour the late Sherri Martel. The belt currently held by Nanae Takahashi will be called the AWA Japan Womens Championship. Takahashi started the press conference by announcing that JD Star Athtresses Misaki Ohata & Shuu Shibutani will face each other in the opening match of the show. She said she has watched them practice and with JD Star closing it should be interesting to see who comes out on top in this match.
Amazing Kong won't be on this show but she did send a note. She said she is busy and can't come to Japan right now. She said she's through with the AWA belt and the SUN wrestlers and is leaving Toshie Uematsu & Kyoko Kimura to take care of REM. She is going to Europe to hunt down that betrayer Wesna Busic. Announced for the July 12 show is Hikaru & At Toshie Uematsu & Kyoko Kimura. Hikaru says now that your leader has left, why don't you two dissolve REM? Uematsu & Kimura start wondering aloud about that themselves but Kimura fires back and says we don't need Amazing Kong to hate you. Hikaru & Kimura start fighting with each other until they are pulled apart. Afterwards, Hikaru is still upset and wants to send Kimura away in an ambulance. Takahashi tells her to calm down and save it for the ring. In other developments, Pro Wrestling SUN president Nakamura is still planning a gaijin tournament for SUN's 1st anniversary show. The winner of the tournament will challenge Nanae Takahashi for the AWA belt. No names announced yet.
