The show began with the aforementioned Moeka Haruhi against Toshie Uematsu. Uematsu is training her so she's going to try to make her look good. Clearly she needs a lot of work to be any good. And like a lot of idol wrestlers, she can't throw a punch. But Uematsu tries really hard to get a decent match out of her and after Haruhi misses a missile dropkick, Uematsu uses a dragon suplex and an atomic bomb for the win at 14:48. Next the return of a bad comedy gimmick. A few years ago Kaori Yoneyama used to do this masked Sarubobo (Monkey Baby) gimmick. Lately WAVE has had Bullfight Sora facing various animal characters. A similar program was done in A To Z a few years ago. Sarubobo brings a friend who I think is supposed to be a bear. It's all played for laughs as Sarubobo wins with a cradle at 4:17. I think the bear is next on Sora's dance card.
Next Noriyo Tateno made a rare appearance outside LLPW against GAMI. Of course GAMI trained in LLPW. Tateno won at 9:34 when she reversed the Adios Amiga. GAMI said she plans to bring in more joshi legends to WAVE. This was followed by a mixed match between Kyoko Kimura & Shuji Ishikawa designed to promote the upcoming Hardcore Ladies show. That show's promoter Hirotsugu Suyama was at the show selling tickets. He no sold a lot of Kimura's offense and won with a rocket launcher at 11:09. I understand WAVE is planning to run more matches in April to promote the Hardcore Ladies show.
The main event had WAVE ace Yumi Ohka against Kayoko Haruyama. Ohka has been involved in JWP's current #1 title contender league and Haruyama is the likely favourite. JWP owner Commando Bolshoi was watching from ringside. It was a decent match. They even went outside the ring as Ohka nailed Haruyama with a chair followed by a brain buster. Haruyama came back with a Pedigree on the floor. The end came when Haruyama hit a hanging crucifix and a Bloody X followed by a diving guillotine leg drop for the win at 22:12. I don't think anyone thought Ohka could win but it's good that she can have a lengthy match with someone like Haruyama.
