Ayumi Kurihara in Mexico video
I'm sure you are all aware that Ayumi Kurihara recently went to Mexico to work on Dragomania IV on Aug. 25 and do a few other shows. So here's the S-Arena video in two parts. Part one has Ayumi arriving in Mexico and having a discussion with Ultimo Dragon. They show some footage of Ayumi training with Tiger Mask and then footage from her match on Dragomania. Hopefully I can dig up the entire match somewhere. You'll notice that she wrestles as herself on this show. But on the second video, she works under a mask as A*YU*MI. You can see that she got over very well with the Mexican fans. I'm not surprised. Ayumi always works very hard and is very appealing. I don't much care for the mask though I understand the mask is a big deal in Mexico. I'm not crazy about this trend of joshi wrestlers wearing masks. But it's not going away anytime soon. I like Ayumi's new red outfit though and she's been wearing it since she returned to Japan. Enjoy the videos!
