Welcome to Frank Pozen's Big Bad Blog. A lot of folks have been asking me to update them about my recovery. So I thought I would start a blog primarily to do that but also to talk about other topics of interest including the wrestling business and whatever else I can think of. I plan to update this on a regular basis so check back and leave a comment if you wish.

Pro Wrestling WAVE announces 24 hours of wrestling
The one thing I can say about Pro Wrestling WAVE is they try very hard to get attention. Of course it doesn't seem to be working and even GAMI offering discount coupons on her blog isn't helping. Of course Yumi Ohka has fans but it's not enough. Today WAVE announced their latest attempt to get somebody, anybody, to give them some media attention. The plan is to run 24 hours of joshi puroresu on Sept. 15 at Shin-kiba 1st Ring. They're calling it CRAZY WAVE. The Midnight show will begin at 1AM. The DAY show will begin at 12:30PM. The NIGHT show will begin at 6PM. Their selling point is that this has never been done in joshi puroresu before. So fans can be part of history or something. In fact, this has never been done before in Japanese pro wrestling history. According to Black Eye 2, Hustle announced something similar in June 2006 but never did it. Of course WAVE regulars GAMI, Yumi Ohka & Moeka Haruhi will be on the shows. I can see them having some sort of tournament to tie the shows together. But I don't see a gimmick like this doing anything for this company. It seems desperate to me.
