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.

Sarah Stock to Japan for Fuuka 5th Anniversary show
Fuuka Matsuri held a press conference today to announce that they will run two shows on Feb. 22 at Shin-kiba 1st Ring to celebrate Fuuka's fifth anniversary in joshi puroresu. They haven't announced any of the singing, dancing or whatever yet. But they have announced most of the matches. Kyoko Kimura was at the press conference to discuss her main event on the show. But the big news is that Sarah Stock is coming in to work both shows. Keep in mind that Sarah worked for A To Z in 2005. Hiroshi Ogawa owned A To Z and also co-owns Fuuka Matsuri. The main event of the first show will have Fuuka & Nanae Takahashi vs Yoshiko Tamura & Haruka Matsuo. Sarah Stock will face Ray. Ray is the masked wrestler from Ibuki who likes to fly a lot so this could be quite the aerial show. In a comedy match, the masked Fuuka Kidd (Kaori Yoneyama) & Ice Ribbon's Riho will face Sakura Emi & Bullfight Sora and Misaki Ohata will face Shuu Shibutani in the opener. The main event in the second show will have Fuuka vs Kyoko Kimura. The original plan was to have a regular 30 minute time limit match. At the press conference, Kimura told Ogawa that because she hasn't faced Fuuka since JD Star, she wants the match to be special. After some discussion, it was decided that the match will be two rounds. The first round will be won by pinfall only. The second round will be won by knockout or submission. Other matches will have Sarah Stock & Azumi Hyuga vs Tojuki Leon & Fuuka Kidd. That could be good. In a comedy match, Small Antonio Inoki (a midget wrestler who resembles Inoki) will face Bullfight Sora and Io & Mio Shirai will face opponents TBA in the opener. I expect Fuuka's family to be involved too as they were last year and I also expect some elaborate singing and dancing.
