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.

WAVE announces tag team title
Pro Wrestling WAVE held a press conference yesterday at Colosseo to announce the TLW Young Woman's Tag Team Championship and the accompanying. What is TLW? Damned if I know but they claim that it's based in San Francisco. Chickfights is in that neighbourhood but I don't see any gaijin wrestlers in this tournament so it could be nonsense. There will be eight teams in this tournament. The matches will be a 15 minute time limit and both teams are eliminated if there's a draw. The tournament is supposed to be for young wrestlers and with one exception that's what we get. The first round matches will be at the Mar. 20 Osaka World Pavillion show. The matches are The Shirai Sisters vs Kyoko Kimura & Mikado. Kimura is 31 so she doesn't really belong in this. Mikado is the big girl in MAKEHEN. Apple Miyuki & Cherry will face Kana & Chiharo Oikawa. That should be an interesting team. Moeka Haruhi & Tomoka Nakagawa will face Kayo Fujimori & HARU. Shuu Shibutani & Ayumi Kurihara will face Hanako Kobayashi & Misaki Ohata. One semi final match will be at the Mar. 25 Shin-kiba 1st Ring show and the other will on the Apr. 4 Shin-kiba 1st Ring show. The final will be on the Apr. 29 Shinjuku FACE show. Shibutani & Kurihara seem like the likely favourites to win this tournament.
