  1. The rush of great Jaguar Yokota matches continues. This was frickin AWESOME. It was kind of a preliminary to the later, bigger Sato/Yokota title match and mainly served the purpose of building up Jaguar, but for a match that is essentially typical half baked young wrestler gets first taste against the star this is really outstanding. Jaguar was absolutely ferocious. Picture Hashimoto, except lighter, faster, girlier, and replace the brutal kicks with brutal matwork. The wrestling was as tight and on point, while still keeping a graceful note, but the struggle and fighting and wild-eyed determination from Jaguar is what pushes it over the top. People talk about Jaguar having ahead-of-her-time offense, but fuck that talking point. She didn't need any of it. The basic spots, such as boston crabs, body scissors or small package holds were made into holy shit spots here. I mean seriously the technique is flawless, but the timing and defensive use of the moves is stunning. Some might argue that structurally the match was messy and had the kind of meandering spots typical of young wrestlers in big matches, but the focus of the match was Jaguar Yokota sticking it to Jackie Sato with a vengeance and that was present at all times. Sato was somewhat reserved, but a great foil for Jaguar's fury and added a few slick moves to the match. Also, there is some arm work that gets paid off nicely, and the repeated leg attack stuff from Jaguar gets played up later in the match, building to an incredible last 5 minutes.
  2. This was the 6th of 8 matches at AJW's final Wrestling Queendom. Right off, Ito hits a German suplex and we get table spots from both women. None of this matters though, these spots and all the submission holds get no sold until Ito smashes Toyota's leg in the railing. This is the first part of the match that feels like they're actually going anywhere with a story and any kind of selling. Toyota's boot even gets taped out on the floor by her team after a bunch of big moves. But Jesus Christ, I wish Ito knew another leg submission besides a single leg crab, Toyota has to sit in like 10 of these in this match. And so many footstomps! Toyota definitely has some Sabu moments in this match as well, like almost completely missing that first table spot and crotching herself setting up a diving missile dropkick and Ito has to wait around to eat it. Ito missing the diving footstomp to the floor sets up the finish with a ton of big moves. Since this was a 30 minute time limit, the match is being teased as time limit draw, but Ito wins with a screwdriver-like move at ~29:30. I thought this match was mediocre. Ito was on offense a lot, and her offense, is...not good. So many half-crabs, so many stomps, it just made the majority of the match feel like filler.
  3. Maybe the most emotional match in the history of pro wrestling. Never have I ever seen a crowd that emotionally invested in a match, excluding maybe only Atlantis vs. V3. It has some issues that prevent it from being absolute top tier but it is one of those definitive must see matches. **** 1/2
