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.

Next VALKYRIE show scheduled for Feb. 28
GCM ran a CAGE FORCE show today and took the opportunity to announce that the next VALKYRIE show will be Feb. 28 Torokazawa Civic Gym. As with the first show, it will be paired with a CAGE FORCE show. VALKYRIE will also be part of CAGE FORCE TV coverage and DVD releases. It appears that this next show won't even be a seperate show. It looks like there will be four VALKYRIE matches on the show. The accompanying pic is of an upcoming CAGE FORCE DVD release that will include VALKYRIE. The fallout from the first show was that VALKYRIE General Manager Nagao was blamed for the late start of the show and was fired. Also, there appears to be genuine bad blood between VALKYRIE and JEWELS. This appears to stem from a difference in promotional philosophy between VALKYRIE's matchmaker Yasugo Mogi and JEWELS matchmaker Shigeru Saeki because of Saeki's insistance in emphasizing the beauty of the fighters. And the fact that they scheduled the JEWELS debut so close to the VALKYRIE debut. Mogi thinks she was upstaged by a flashier show. And though some fans don't like Saeki's approach, it's a good way to build a fanbase of less hardcore fans. It remains to be seen which promotion will be more successful.
