Fuuka retirement show set for Mar. 28
Here's the S-Arena video digest for yesterday's Fuuka Matsuri show. Fuuka's retirement show will be Mar. 28 at Korakuen Hall. That's around when she celebrates her sixth anniversary in joshi. The clips in the video begin with Fuuka's exhibition match with MMA fighter Mika Nagano. It was declared a draw. Next is Passion Seven vs Police Woman. Doing the masked wrestler thing is a bit of a fad in joshi right now and some of the wrestlers have created some elaborate costumes. But Nanae Takahashi simply wore her usual costume and a mask. Huh? We also see clips from Fuuka & Misaki Ohata vs DASH Chisako & Ryo Mizunami. Then Fuuka makes her big announcement. So what's Fuuka going to do? I was reminded that she recently switched representation to a more traditional talent agency that works with models as opposed to wrestlers. Some fans have suggested MMA but Fuuka actually hasn't done MMA for three years. She has done Shoot Boxing and has trained with K-1 star Andy Souwers. I think she prefers that style to MMA. K-1 announced a few months ago that they planned to start a women's division. But other than that Korean actress who has appeared on a couple of K-1 shows in Korea, they haven't done anything yet. Maybe that's part of Fuuka's plan. I dunno. Enjoy the video.
