Ito Dojo visits Nikkan Sports
Here's another video that I snagged from Nikkan Sports. Ayako Sato & Hanako Kobayashi visited Nikkan Sports today to promote Sunday's Ito Dojo show at Shinjuku FACE. They've worked as a tag team before and they show a clip from a recent match where Kobayashi jumped off a ladder onto Yumiko Hotta. The most interesting thing on this match is the return of the ZAPs. These were the masked heels from AJW played by Kaoru Ito & Tomoko Watanabe. Watanabe is coming out of retirement for this. They will face Ayako Sato & Cherry. Kobayashi is in a 2 of 3 falls tag team match partnering with Yumiko Hotta & Manami Toyota vs Kaoru Ito, Ayako Hamada & Aki Kanbayashi. With her frilly pink costume, Kobayashi doesn't seem to fit in with the other two and she admitted to being a little puzzled by the matchup. A lot of today's joshi is puzzling. But the 20 year old Kobayashi says she is honoured to work with the veterans and wants to learn from them. Enjoy the video.
