Hotta & Kei'to win JWP Tag Team Titles
The other major angle advancement had JWP Junior & POP Champ Hiroyo Matsumoto teaming with Misaki Ohata vs Arisa Nakajima & Pinkie Mayuca. A lot of action as you would expect. The end came when Nakajima & Mayuca double teamed Matsumoto. Mayuca nailed her with a high kick while Nakajima hit a German suplex for the win at 11:10. Mayuca promptly challenged Matsumoto for the belts. Matsumoto agreed as long as she wins her first title defense against Sachiko Sendai at the Feb. 1 Ibuki show. That match will be on the Feb. 5 show. Speaking of the Ibuki show, Mariko Yoshida announced today that Ohata is ill and will be replaced by Ayako Sato. The main championship angle between Kayoko Haruyama & Azumi Hyuga was not advanced in a 6 girl tag with Haruyama teaming with Bolshoi & GAMI vs Hyuga, Abe & Yumi Ohka. Ohka seems out of place. Haruyama won over Abe with the Keene Hammer at 17:36. Other matches had Tojuki Leon over Kaori Yoneyama with the captured buster at 16:54 and KAZUKI over Ranmaru with a reverse cross arm breaker at 7:43. The slow build to Mania-X continues.
