Her last tweet was from May, so did she delete them recently?

e: I was on her wrestling profile and not her personal. Reporting all the people harassing her, Twitter needs to loving get with the program.

Human waste is still alive. I'm sorry... sorry for not contributing anything. It's not worth it because it's a person who makes me notice only things I can't do, but I have a respiratory system, so I'm sorry for breathing. Ah. I wasn't recognized as a person. I'm sorry to call myself a human.

This seems to be the same person (or small group of people) that she's been dealing with for a while; they keep on creating alts to get around blocks and bans. Main thing that they go after her for is her still living with her parents like that's something to be ashamed of. Just goes to show the minor things people will use and the amount of harm that one person can cause.

If you want to see the matches that these are from: its the AJW Classics series available here. Basically its a series of shows that Samurai TV have been doing since 2007 where they've basically gone through the AJW Archive in chronological order (mostly) and picked out the top matches from the early 80s on - currently they are in 2002. The shows from the 80s were the early ones where they didn't quite have the format down so they skip a lot, very much focus on the Crush Gals because, well, they were the stars at the time but it means you don't get a lot of big Jaguar Yokota matches and stuff but as an idea of what Joshi was like at the time, worth a watch.

e: Dump Matsumoto was the top heel at the time and she'd stab people with poo poo sometimes. I think this might also have been in that time between the two Nagayo/Matsumoto hair matches (Nagayo lost the first in a bullshit way, getting her revenge later on) so there is a reason for the scissors on top of that. One thing that shocked me when I was going through those early AJW shows was just how bloody they got: basically every Crush Gals vs Villainous Alliance match ended with Asuka and Nagayo covered in blood and some pretty gnarly stuff. They took a lot of cues from Lucha at that time which might explain it.

I thought the redtext someone dumped on you was in bad taste and a bit much so here's a corgi instead.

They have some shows & matches on their Youtube but I believe the best way to watch them is to subscribe to their NicoNico channel which is 550 Yen a month

Also their online shop ships abroad but I think there's a minimum spend.

Ladies and gentlemen,

Good ol' auto-translate, leaving off the most important part of the tweet (ただいま/"I'm back.")

At least it's not quite as bad as when it somehow managed to translate Miyako Matsumoto's tweet in the wake of Hana's passing as "I don't care."

You are now hearing this
noise in your head.





TJPW had a show tonight and the main stuff that happened is that Maki Itoh has effectively created what he considers her "Kaientai DX" with Raku and Pom (who seems surprised that she is included)

Also Yuki Aino challenged Yuka for a future title shot. Kamiyu heard and ran into the ring to drop kick Yuki and demand the shot herself. Yuka suggested they have a match first to determine the challenger.

Then, since Nodoka was just kind of awkwardly spectating, Yuka cheerfully offered her a title match as well if she wanted.

Her style is new but the face is the same as it was so long ago...


Hyper Misao and Shoko had good chemistry as a team imo, I'd like to see them together more. I don't expect either Yuki to be the one to dethrone Yuka but they've worked hard and improved a bunch from where I started watching so I'm excited to see them in the spotlight.

I wouldn't go so far as to say it was reckless, I think she's probably worked on it and Haruna got up for it a little more than she expected so she over-rotated.

She's got new gear that makes her look like Maika who already had gear that makes her look like Utami so it's confusing.

They did change her nickname from Jumbo to Jumbo Princess along with chopping off her last name though

Was going to make fun of them doing the WWE thing of chopping second names off people but it fits in with the rest of the stable who also are one name people who've pretty much always been one name people (Giulia, Syuri, Maika, Himeka) so its fine.

If people want to see more of her stuff to get an idea of her as a wrestler; I remember her SEAd tag title reign with Miyuki Takase being fun as were that team more generally; and her AWG Title tournament final match against Takase was very good. On YouTube there are some of her 2019 Catch the WAVE matches but I've not watched those since they didn't air at the time.

Group promos are up - since its a mystery card rather than do promos for each match they did them by faction, the TCS one is, well, its something. They also have uploaded the ten-bell salute and Jungle Kyona's pre-show speech.

Hanan, Hina, and Rina have apparently grown half a foot since the last show they were on.

The TCS promo was heartbreaking but also uplifting. She's out there somewhere watching, so do your best for her.
