Big Bad Blog Video Theater-Natsuki*Taiyo vs Yuhi

I've had a chance to watch some of the matches from STARDOM's Apr. 29 Sumo Hall show. I posted the video of the main event of Io Shirai vs Alpha Female the other day. This match with Natsuki*Taiyo defending the High Speed Championship against Yuhi is the best match on the show. What is the High Speed Championship? It's a pointless belt that NEO started a few years ago and STARDOM bought it from them. But this match is pretty good. Natsuki*Taiyo has been attached to Nanae Takahashi's hip for the last few years. I've always described her as similar to Momoe Nakanishi but not as talented. Who is? But she's a good wrestler. STARDOM has turned her heel. Yuhi is a young girl who trained at Zero One. But they don't have a women's division so she works frequently for STARDOM. She debuted last year and I liked her the first time I saw her. She's only 17 years old and she is pretty good already. Her skill level is much higher than STARDOM's own idol wrestlers. Natsuki*Taiyo can really move and Yuhi has no trouble keeping up with her. It's a sprint but that's what High Speed Championship matches are supposed to be. The other matches on the show just aren't as good. The worst was Kairi Hojo & Natsumi Showzuki vs Kyoko Kimura & Hailey Hatred. The two teams don't mesh well probably because of Hojo & Showzuki's inexperience. And they botched the ending. They should have done it over. Dark Angel won the Wonder Of STARDOM belt over Act Yasukawa. Sarah Stock tries very hard to make Act look good but Act just isn't very good at the physical part of pro wrestling yet. She has some of the acting down but she has to do both. Also, her costume is terrible. She may have bigger problems has Act is out with a back injury. The Yuzuki Aikawa retirement match was the same as any of Aikawa's other matches because she only has three moves and keeps repeating them. I didn't watch the retirement ceremony. I don't want to see her again. The six girl match that ran as a buffer between the Aikawa retirement ceremony and the main event was a mish mash and a waste of Hiroyo Matsumoto's talent. She deserves to be in a better match. And I also watched the debut match of Takumi Ihora vs Meiko Satomura. Satomura may look the same as she looked when she was really good. But she can't wrestle the way she used to. Maybe it's time to retire. Ihora doesn't have the typical idol look of most of the STARDOM roster so they given her the goofy Hikaru look. I hope she's a better wrestler than Hikaru. So STARDOM owner Hiroshi Ogawa's attempt to turn bikini model Yuzuki Aikawa into the new Fuuka is officially over. But I doubt he has learned his lesson. Enjoy the video!
