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.

Olympic wrestler Kyoko Hamaguchi to STARDOM?
STARDOM has this big show coming up in March 2013 and they will have trouble filling the hall. STARDOM owner Hiroshi Ogawa is well aware of that and was recently thinking aloud on his blog that he would like to get veteran amateur wrestler Kyoko Hamaguchi to appear on this show. Today the story was picked up by Tokyo Sports. Of course Kyoko is the daughter of legendary pro wrestler Animal Hamaguchi. He also trains joshi wrestlers like Nanae Takahashi and Kyoko has started training wrestlers in recent years. As an amateur she has won several world championships. Her Olympic record isn't as impressive. She wom Bronze in 72kg wrestling in 2004 and 2008. She didn't even medal in 2012. Over the years she has been rumoured as getting into pro wrestling. It never happened but she did appear on a Nov. 1994 AJW show. Kyoko is good friends with Nanae Takahashi and some of the other girls so she might want to appear on a one shot basis. And I think that is all Ogawa wants. Her appearance would certainly help publicize the show.
