Hardcore joshi puroresu show announced
A press conference was held on Monday to announce a very unique hardcore joshi puroresu show. The show is being promoted by Hirotsugu Suyama. He's a wrestling writer, commentator & photographer best known for his deluxe joshi puroresu photo book Heavy Metal Ladies. The show is titled Hardcore Ladies and will be at the Japanese Judas Tree Studio on May 4. The announced main event will be a Fluorescent Tube match between Kyoko Kimura and 666 wrestler Yuuko Miyamoto. Kimura has had several of these kind of matches in Big Japan and is pretty good at them. He also announced a Barbed Wire Board match featuring Mayumi Ozaki and Arisa Nakajima. He says he hasn't decided if it will be a singles match or if he'll expand it to a tag team match. Of course Ozaki has a lot of experience in this kind of match but this is uncharted territory for Nakajima. It should be interesting to see what else Suyama comes up with. At least it's different, I guess.
