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.

Mayumi Ozaki thinks it's 1988
That face belongs to the diabolical OZ Academy owner Mayumi Ozaki. In the last year, Ozaki has done some intricate angles in OZ Academy. Some are fun and some defy logic and common sense. This new one falls into the latter category. Details about this were posted on Ozaki's personal blog, not the OZ Academy website or blog. She has booked what she is calling OZ Academy Style for Mar. 8 at something called the Kita-Senju Theatre 1010 mini theatre. I guess it's big enough for a ring but very limited seating. I didn't notice a capacity figure. Participants are Mayumi Ozaki, Manami Toyota, AKINO, Aja Kong, Chikayo Nagashima, Carlos Amano, Dynamite Kansai & Sonoko Kato. This is where it gets weird. She's calling it an eight woman scramble. It starts with an eight woman tag match with teams chosen by lot. The losing team participate in a tag team match with teams also chosen by lot. The losers face each other and the loser will be punished in a special match on the Apr. 12 Shinjuku FACE show. Ozaki wants to keep the name of the loser secret until that show. This will be a closed door show. Fans will not be allowed to take pictures or bring in refreshments. Ozaki must think it's 1988 because she has prohibited any reporting on this show including bloggers who usually report OZ Academy results. It should be interesting to see if she can pull that off. I understand Ozaki's reasons for wanting to do that but it's not realistic. Trying to keep anything a secret today is an exercise in futility. Ozaki said on her blog that this is a "what the hell" show because OZ doesn't have any other shows scheduled for March. It seems more like "What the f***" to me.
