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.

Kojima, Genki interview
NEO held a press conference today to promote their Nov. 12 Korakuen Hall show. Of course the big match on this show is the inter gender match between Misae Genki and All Japan star Satoshi Kojima. This match has gotten more media coverage than any joshi match in recent memory. Nikkan Sports posted video and I have posted it here. Genki gets all teary eyed of course. She says she always wanted to have a match with Kojima as he's her favourite wrestler. To his credit, Kojima is respecting Genki. He says he's never had a match with a woman but plans to have a good match. NEO president Koda has been whining about this match constantly on the NEO blog but he should reward Genki's loyalty with her dream match. Why not? It's just sad that this is what it takes to get any media coverage for joshi. The other part of the press conference talked about the NEO Machine Gunz defending the NEO Tag Team Titles against Kyoko Inoue & Hiroyo Matsumoto. The Machine Gunz described Kyoko & Matsumoto as monsters and compared them to Godzilla & Gamera. They said they will attack two monsters and justice will win in the end. We'll see. We always predict that they'll lose but they always hold on to the belts. Enjoy the video.
