Big Bad Blog Video Theater-Mayu Iwatani vs Kairi Hojo

Here's the match video of Kairi Hojo defending her Wonder of STARDOM Championship against Mayu Iwatani on the May 14 STARDOM show at Korakuen Hall. This match has historical significance as Hojo had already announced she is leaving Japan for the WWE. So naturally she had to drop the belt. With Io Shirai also signing with the WWE, that makes Mayu STARDOM's ace by default. The only problem with that is Mayu announced early this year she plans to retire at the end of 2017. I suppose she could change her mind if she is made the ace. She's an OK wrestler but nothing special. The match is OK. Obviously there's no heat. Both are babyfaces. Kairi gets to leap from the Korakuen Hall balcony and land some of her other trademark spots like the rolling cradle. The turning point comes when Mayu gets her knees up for a flying elbow drop. Then Mayu lands a couple of tiger suplexes for the win. So enjoy the match. Kairi will make her final Japanese appearance this Wednesday at an autograph session. Then it's off to Orlando. I will have more on that subject very soon.
