This is a match on Mika Iida retirement road. The match itself only goes a little more than six minutes but it sure as hell an awesome six minutes. The whole match is just a constant flow holds being exchanged with a few strikes and suplexes being mixed in. It could have used a couple of more minutes to get them to build to more of a finish, but it's really hard to complain with what they did here. ****
donsem43 posted a topic in January 2017This is a #1 contenders match for the DUALSHOCK WAVE tag team title that were held at this time by Avid Rival (Misaki Ohata & Ryo Mizunami.) Iida and Yoneyama start off doing some effective work over Miyazaki's arm which she did a great job a selling throughout by working her offense around it. Ohka ringwork was great. She was in beast mode the whole match, working stiff and busting out some very nasty variations of the Bloody EX. The most impressive thing about this match is that while they worked a quick pace, they all kept their limitations in mind and rarely overextended themselves. A surprisingly great match which is easy to skip over since the only one in the match consider a top worker is Iida. Don't skip over this if you have WAVE Network. ****
donsem43 posted a topic in October 2016This is a first round match in WAVE's Next tournament to find a new number one contender for Yuu Yamagata's Regina di WAVE title. This match is super short, it goes less than three minutes, but they pack a ton of action into it. It's impressive that Iida manages to get two convincing near-finishes of an arm submission in that short time. Yoneyama spends the whole match going full speed, constantly trying for rollups till she actually manages to lock one in for the win. This match would have definitely fit in on a late 90's episode of WCW Worldwide.
donsem43 posted a topic in June 2016This is a battle between to of the younger finalists, although Iida made it all the way to the finals last year. Yamashita takes over in the early going as she bulls over the smaller Iida. She counters back with some really nasty work on Yamashita's arm trying to take away her main weapon. But Iida makes a tactical error in getting caught up in strike and big move exchanges, which allow Yamashita to be able to use her arm just enough to be able to fire back. I really liked Yamashita's arm selling as she seems to be gutting her way through the pain as oppose to your typical fighting spirit no-selling spot. Great, physical main event from a couple of promising young joshi workers. ****
