Kaori Yoneyama announces retirement
After today's JWP Kinema Klub show, Kaori Yoneyama announced she plans to retire in December. Yoneyama has been a wrestler for over a decade but it was only in the last year that she finally became JWP Open Weight Champion. She recently returned from an injury so I can only assume her retirement is related to that. As small as Yoneyama is, she can only take a pounding for so long that she needs to get out while she can still walk. She was loyal to JWP despite owner Commando Bolshoi's reluctance to give her a title run until recently. Here's a video of her announcement.
