aguakun posted a topic in April 2017JWP Openweight Championship: Hanako Nakamori © vs. Tsubasa Kuragaki This is the final JWP Openweight Championship match on the final JWP show ever, so of course it ends on a roll-up. This was actually going well until that puzzling finish, they were beating the shit out of each other, head-drops and head-kicks, Tsubasa being the chunky powerhouse-high flyer hybrid that she is, the kind of stuff you want to see on a final show, but that finish could not have been more anticlimactic. A company's finale should have a decisive finish. Maybe Tsubasa didn't want to do the clean job. Strange booking, in any case. ***1/4
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VcT7KCLKXAU This is Nakamori's first defense of the JWP title that she won at the end of last year. They did a terrific job laying this match out with a veteran like Leon posing enough of a threat to the new champ but not being a clear favourite. It made you actually buy into how close and competitive the match was. The finish is long but that due in a way to the both of them selling the big moves that each of them were hitting on each other. The only thing that keeps this from being a great match is the work isn't as smooth as it should have been. Still, this is a strong, well earned, first defense for Nakamori. ***3/4
donsem43 posted a topic in August 2016Match Link Best Friends keep their great run going by having another high quality main event. The added bonus here is that Best Friends are teasing a break up angle and they do a terrific job of working that into their matches. While she's far from Akira Hokuto, Nakajima is the best women in the world at storytelling in the ring. Nakamori is quite good here, similar to Takako Inoue in tags from '93-'95. I generally hate watching Kyoko Kimura but she kept her annoying tendencies to a minimum and worked more as a straight up hard hitter. Just a great, under the radar, MOTYC. ****1/2
