OZ Academy announces mixed tag team tournament
Here's something we haven't seen in the joshi business for a long time. OZ Academy announced in association with Osaka Pro a one day mixed tag team tournament Sept. 17 at Shinjuku FACE. I don't think there has been a tournament like this since the P-MIX tournament several years ago. There will be a total of eight teams. The preliminary rounds will be in the afternoon and the semi finals and finals will be in the evening. The usual OZ Academy crew will participate including Mayumi Ozaki, Aja Kong, Carlos Amano, Chikayo Nagashima, AKINO, Sonoko Kato, Dynamite Kansai with special guest The Bolshoi Kid. The Osaka Pro wrestlers will include Billy Ken Kid, Asian Cougar, Condor and other guys I'm not familiar with. The teams will be announced later. OZ has been using men on their shows regularly so I'm not particularly surprised.
