Fuuka gets NEO double title shot
NEO held a press conference on Thursday to announce the main event for their tenth anniversary show Jan. 6 at Korakuen Hall. The main event will have NEO Singles & NWA Pacific Champion Haruka Matsuo defending her titles against...drum roll...EWA Womens Champion Fuuka. Of course the obvious reason for NEO GM Koda to do this is though Fuuka is by no means a main event wrestler, she is a draw. Koda is also trying to sell the match as unique because these two have never faced each other in a singles match. But it is a tenth anniversary show and should have a sense of history and Fuuka has no history with NEO. Fuuka does have a history of choking in big matches and it's doubtful Matsuo can change that. It's not suitable as a main event of a significant show. He also announced 30 woman battle royal. Toshie Uematsu, Ran Yuyu, Sakura Emi, Aoi Kizuki & Makoto have signed and more wrestlers will be announced. And three or four more matches are to be announced including the return of Mima Shimoda.
