It's like goldy or bronzy, but made of iron.




So my current favourite Gatoh Move wrestler, and this shifts week by week, is Tokiko Kirihara. For someone who started wrestling in her forties and has only been wrestling since last year, she is super skillful and has tremendous ring presence. It also helps, in a company where half the women wrestlers are under five feet tall, to have a Tall Girl for Mei to fail to lift.

That was one of the best ChocoPro matches I've seen. Yunamon owns, and it's gonna own seeing AEW Superstar Emi get her comeuppance at some point.

While I would bet on them liking it because of the first sentence, is it not true that GTMV exists because of Emi's desire to have a promotion that's free of the grosser aspects of joshi wrestling?

Gatoh Move exists because Emi Sakura left Ice Ribbon (which she set up) because of "internal disagreements" and no one really knows what that means; and she wanted to carry on promoting some sort of pro wrestling: something that more resembled earlier Ice Ribbon (so on a smaller scale based in Ichigaya). The two promotions never work with each other though: even in other promotions where both send talent you'll never see a Gatoh Move wrestler and an Ice Ribbon wrestler in the ring at the same time. Ice Ribbon was set up in 2006 because Joshi was almost dead and every promotion was dying and Emi wanted to do something to prevent that from happening because she wanted to carry on wrestling and wanted to be able to help others carry on wrestling while bringing others in.

Them shying away from some of the weirder bits of Joshi is a conscious decision they've made and one that's admirable they aren't exactly alone in that (you have promotions like Marvelous, Sendai Girls and Pure-J that do the same sort of thing just in a very different way; they are a lot more old-school in presentation) and while I'm not accusing anyone of anything someone shying away from that sort of stuff wouldn't be evidence that they didn't abuse people: just look at some of the people we've learned to be sex pests and worse. And while I admittedly am a little detached looking at things from the other side of the world it feels like the overall scene is moving away from that stuff: Stardom have dropped the photobooks (for now; I suspect that they'll do something in the future in the same way that New Japan do stuff like that); there seems to be a lot less wrestlers that do the gravure stuff now which suggests possibly that they have the money to not need to and other things like that. Really good that Gatoh Move exists though; such a unique promotion that bring people into wrestling that would never get a chance in a lot of other places.

Eh, I wouldn't say Gatoh Move shy away from the weirder stuff if you're gonna put Stardom and TJPW in with them. They sell 8x10s and two shots with RinRin which isn't something I'd be remotely comfortable with lol

Aside from that one with Mayu and Io the Stardom photobooks have been relatively tame compared to some of the gravure videos out there.

And on the opposide side, Yunamon wants to prove herself in Riho's eyes:

The opener has the supposedly injured Sakura w/ Lulu Pencil promising not to pull any dirty tricks against Kirihara and Konno (who was clearly disappointed that she didn't get to wrestle Riho).
