Ran YuYu came out at the start of the show to announce that due to her back injury, the six girl match she was supposed to be in is now a handicap match. The first three matches on the show were pure filler. First there was a standard comedy match with GAMI vs Bullfight Sora. I guess they wanted to get the crowd in a good mood. Sora charged at GAMI & ref Tommy Ran for most of the match. Gami won with a cradle. Shirigami was DQd in his match against Leatherface for a flame attack. And the Devil Masami road to retirement continued. She won over Kana with the Fire Valley in about three minutes and they had a nice hug afterwards. Now we can move on to the real show.
Next up was Aja Kong & Hiroyo Matsumoto vs Dynamite Kansai & Tomoka Nakagawa. Nakagawa pulls Matsumoto into the corner and Kansai pounds her for a while. Matsumoto tries to come back but Kansai uses her power to control her and tags Nakagawa in. Nakagawa nails Matsumoto with a leg lariat but Matsumoto hits a backdrop and tags Aja. Nakagawa tries to lift Aja for a suplex. Of course she can't and Nakagawa becomes an Aja/Matsumoto sandwich. Matsumoto's fisherman suplex pin attempt is broken up by Kansai. Aja nails her with a tin can. Matsumoto gets the win over Nakagawa with a backdrop. More about this angle after the show.
Yoshiko Tamura & Misae Genki came over from NEO to face Chikayo Nagashima & Sonoko Kato. After an exchange of elbows, Tamura pulls Kato into her corner and applies a face wash. Genki continues the attack with a cobra hold. Kato escapes and tags Nakashima in. After a snap mare and a soccer ball kick on Tamura, Tamura hits a brainbuster and Nakashima tags Sato. Genki uses her power again to take control and that's pretty much how this went. The turning point comes when Kato attempts to superplex Genki but Tamura catches her in a German suplex. The end comes when Genki gets a jumping power bomb on Nakashima for the win. A lot of action but there was never any doubt who would win.
Next was this handicap match with KAORU, Takako Inoue & Hiren vs AKINO & Manami Toyota.It turned into a handicap match when Ran YuYu couldn't go. Aja Kong volunteered to fill in but KAORU said she wouldn't do the match with Aja and AKINO said it was OK. Naturally Police & Mika Nishio were there and Aja Kong & Hiroyo Matsumoto were there to neutralize them. This started conventionally with AKINO & KAORU. AKINO took control over Hiren with a moonsault press. Police intrudes but Aja stops him. Takako tags in but as soon as AKINO gets control, KAORU comes in. Takako hits an avalanche style brainbuster for a 2 count. After a missile kick, Nishio grabs AKINO's foot and after a Frankensteiner, Hiren tags in. She bites Toyota's hand and then Nishio bites her other hand. So Aja bites Nishio's hand. After Hiren's missile kick, AKINO tags in and hits several dropkicks followed by a brainbuster for a 2 count followed by more kicks. But Hiren gets AKINO in an ankle lock while Takako gets Toyota in an STF. Police attempts a cheap shot but runs from Aja. When AKINO gets control over Hiren, KAORU gets a desk board and zonks both AKINO & Toyota with it. Then everybody comes in and it's one big mess. KAORU hits everyone with the board. Toyota hits a Queen Bee Bomb on KAORU for a 2 count. Takako goes for her stun gun but AKINO heads her off with a missile kick. KAORU gets the stun gun but doesn't know how to use it. She stuns herself and drops the board. When Toyota gets KAORU up for a brainbuster, Takako nails her with the stun gun and KAORU gets the win with a hurricanrana at 12:58.
Now it's time for the main event between Carlos Amano & Mayumi Ozaki. With all the stipulations for this match like no rules, any weapons, hair vs hair etc. etc., they didn't bother to tell us it was 2 of 3 falls. So Ozaki brings a chair wrapped in barbed wire and a chain and Amano brings a metal baseball bat. Ozaki knocks the bat out of Amano's hand and hits her with the chair. Ozaki wedges the chair in the corner and whips Amano into the barbed wire. She busts Amano's forehead open with the barbed wire. Then she hits a power bomb on the chair. Ozaki goes out to grab a table from under the ring. Amano recovers and backdrops Ozaki onto the table. Then she batters Ozaki with the desk board. After some stomping, Amano leans the table in the corner and puts Ozaki against it. She charges...and misses. Ozaki goes back to the chair and hangs Amano with the chair in the corner. This is followed by a piledriver that shatters the table. After more chair shots, Ozaki uses a Yakuza kick for the first fall at 7:38.
Ozaki continues to attack Amano between falls. She starts fall two with a chain wrapped around her fist battering Amano. Then she wraps the chain around Amano's neck and hangs her over the top rope and drops her to the floor. She beats her with the barbed wire chair. Then a brainbuster on the floor followed by more chain hanging in the corner. Then Ozaki brings out more chairs from under the ring. It doesn't look good for Amano. But she avoids a brainbuster on the chair. But Ozaki hits her over the head with the chair for a 2 count. Ozaki sits Amano up in a chair but Amano slips away and nails Ozaki with a vertical brainbuster on the chair. Amano wedges the barbed wire chair in the corner and whips Ozaki into it. Then she busts her open. Then Amano hits her with the chain followed by several baseball bat shots. Amano applies a triangle choke with the chain. Ozaki kicks the bat out of Amano's hands. Ozaki hits a back fist followed by a kick. Amano uses the ropes and a chair to wrap up Ozaki's arm. Then she wraps her arm in the chain. Ozaki gives up at 9:25. It's all tied up.
Amano starts the third fall by going back to the arm. Ozaki tries to counter but Amano is relentless and chases her on the floor. They're beating each other with the chain. You may recall that one of the stipulations was that Amano couldn't use her Carlos Ghosn finisher. Back in the ring, Amano pretends to go for it and Ozaki flinches and is almost tricked into losing. Ozaki hits Amano with several chain wrapped back fists for a 2 count. Then Ozaki gets fluorescent light tubes from under the ring. She swings and misses and the tubes fall into the ring. Ozaki hits another back fist but Amano is able to escape the light tubes. Then Amano tries for Ozaki's Tequila Sunrise finisher. She's unsuccessful and Ozaki hooks a dragon sleeper. Amano escapes and gets the light tubes and explodes them over Ozaki's head. Ozaki isn't moving. But to make sure, Amano wins the match with the Tequila Sunrise at 6:04. Carlos Amano is still the principal of OZ Academy.
After the match, D-Fix attacks Amano outside the ring. But Ozaki sat in the chair in the middle of the ring and yes, Amano cut her hair. She starts with scissors but somebody sends an electric hair clipper and Amano cuts her hair. Then Ozaki takes the clipper and cuts her own hair. Reduced to a brush cut, Ozaki asks Amano if it is good enough. Amano says yes and Ozaki can go. While Ozaki kneels in respect, Police attacks Amano and the fighting starts. Ozaki gets scissors and starts to cut Amano's hair. The crowd boos. Ozaki tells Amano it will never be over and flips the bird to the crowd.
Then Aja Kong enters the ring to congratulate Amano on her victory. She asks Amano if she has any ideas for future matches. Amano says why do you ask. Aja says she has an idea for a tag team title tournament. Amano says OK. Aja says D-Fix is through so we'll need some other teams. Dynamite Kansai comes in and says she wants to team with Tomoka Nakagawa. Aja plans to team with Hiroyo Matsumoto. Aja asks Amano if she wants to team with Ozaki. Everyone laughs. Apparently this tag team tournament will be on the next OZ Academy show. Nothing's been announced yet but it appears they are planning to team a veteran with a younster similar to the 1996 Discover New Heroine tournament. They also announced that they are planning Plum Mariko memorial shows on Aug. 10 at Korakuen Hall and Aug. 16 Taisho azeria in Osaka. This show looks like a lot of fun. But I wouldn't write off D-Fix just yet.
