  1. Loser Leaves Unit - Gauntlet: Oedo Tai (Kris Wolf, Sumire Natsu, Kagetsu, Hana Kimura & Tam Nakano) vs. Queen's Quest (AZM, Io Shirai, Viper, HZK & Momo Watanabe) This was an amazing match, the stakes are high and you can feel the tension. Sumire's sleazy heel character has quickly become one of my favorite things in Stardom - she was so good in this. The Kagetsu-Viper segment had breathtaking spots, and Hana-HZK was a heated back and forth that ends with an insane bump. The final between Momo and Tamu was rough at times, but they fought with a lot of heart and the crowd was hot. ****1/4
  2. This match is being hyped as Viper has long named Aja as a personal inspiration and one of the wrestlers she most wants to beat. And it's 2018 so Aja Kong is wrestling in London. We start with some shoulder charges where neither woman is able to really budge the other. Both are used to wrestling much smaller opponents but now they've got a real physical test. Viper stands in the middle of the ring and invites Aja to charge at her. Aja succeeds in knocking Viper back a bit, and says it's your turn. Viper runs to the rope but Aja runs right behind her and cheap shots her and takes her down! Oh Viper. Surely you should know Aja Kong aint gonna play fair. Crowd was chanting for Aja but now they're pissed at her. She doesn't care. They fight on the outside and Aja throws Viper into the guardrail in front of like an 8 year old curled up in her chair looked scared. Aja takes a few seconds to shout trash at some guys in the crowd heckling her in between throwing Viper into the ring post and raking her eyes. Viper attempts a comeback throwing some strikes but Aja knocks her straight down with a right hand to the face. Aja then performs this funny dance and flexes her muscles to wind up the crowd even more. Her mannerism are so entertaining. Viper starts a comeback and they just start lariating the hell out of each other. They double lariat each other and bounce apart but Viper's quick enough to hit a huge dropkick and knocks Aja off her feet for the first time! Crowd really reacts like this is a big moment. Viper hits her with a big crossbody and senton, 1, 2, KICKOUT. Aja gets to the corner. Viper charges at her but Aja clocks her on the head with her trusty garbage can! The referee snatches it off her and has it removed meanwhile Aja shrugs and is sincerely baffled that he thinks that wasn't legal. Aja then hits Viper with an absolutely sick brainbuster. My Lord that looked devastating. 1, 2 KICKOUT! Aja rolls up her gloves signalling she's about to finish this and slowly drags a groggy Viper to her feet, she goes for the spinning backfist but Viper ducks, headbutts Aja into the corner and hits a big cannonball. 1, 2, KICKOUT! Viper goes to the top rope to hit the Vader bomb but Aja gets her knees up and blocks it with an evil smirk on her face. She hits Viper with a couple of strikes and a spinning back fist! Viper's knocked out. Aja goes to the second rope and leaps off for a big elbow drop. Didn't know Aja still did that move! 1, 2, THREE! In the post match Aja extends to a hand to Viper sitting on the floor against the turnbuckle to help her up. Viper reaches out and... Aja pulls her hand back haha, mocks her, slaps her ass and leaves the ring laughing at the crowd who're booing her some more. She will never change. Loved this match. Two big women with big personalities clashing with a solid face/heel dynamic and working the crowd throughout. ***3/4
  3. This is Viper's first defense of the SWA title that she had just won a couple of shows ago. Not only is Jungle in her hometown but it's also her birthday. So her entrance ends up being a big deal and the match itself has great heat throughout. Jungle's pride gets the better of her at the start as she tries to show off her power by attempting to slam Viper. This backfires, allowing Viper to squish Jungle and for her to start using her size to were Jungle down. Jungle does make a spirited comeback highlighted by her powerbombing Viper out of the corner. The finish has a really nice exchange of near-falls with the crowd getting into each one. A strong title match. ****
  4. In this match Toni puts her SWA title vs. Viper's ICW title. Out of the matches that this two have had with each other this was my favourite. They pretty much cut out the cutesy 'watch Viper do World of Sport spot' part of the match in favour of just throwing flat out bombs. Viper also took some nutty bumps including a piledriver from Toni on the stage. The only thing I didn't like about this match was Toni no-selling an apron dive and a Michinoku Driver from Viper. Other than that, this match was a super fun bombfest. ****
  5. This is for Queen's Quest's Artists of Stardom titles. As someone who was never enjoyed this feud, I was surprised that I ended up liking this as much as I did. This was one of the rare times that Oedo Tai's heel shtick worked well within a match. They also manage to work some nice sequences and pulled off some nice double teams. QQ were also able to give their typical trios level performance because they weren't weighed down by Oedo Tai's antics. A much better match than the overrated elimination match from the week before. ***3/4
  6. This match looked like something that would be on Mid South/UWF TV in the mid-80's. Just two big wrestlers going right at each other in a hard, physical way. In her pre-match promo, Bito said that she had to avoid being crushed but unfortunately that's exactly what happens with Viper topping things off with a flip dive off the apron. Bito manages to survive though but she has to swing for the fences if she has any hope of winning. A nice book end to a solid tournament for Viper and a surprisingly strong one for Bito. ***3/4
  7. I didn't have any real expectations for this because I was expecting a ton of interference because of the whole Oedo Tai/Queen's Quest feud. Fortunately, the two group cancelled each other out and this match ended up being pretty good. Kagetsu had a really nice performance mixing her heel tactics with some high flying and a few impressive power spots. Viper had one of her best performances in Stardom. She brought her typical squishy offense, (personally I don't get why some people think she works too light,) and did a solid job bumping and selling Kagetsu's offense in the early going. One of the top matches of the 5*GP so far. ***3/4
  8. Goddesses of Stardom Championship: Oedo Tai (Hana Kimura & Kagetsu) © vs. Queen's Quest (Io Shirai & Viper) Oedo Tai's heel tactics™, Io's peril session, Viper's hot tag and chemistry with Kagetsu -- all solid. I still don't like Viper as a member of QQ. She's the same Viper! She's made little effort to fit in with the group. ***1/2
  9. This is a rematch of the SWA title match that these two had in Stardom earlier this year. I didn't care for that match because it got too cute with "look at Viper do World of Sport stuff" and never felt like a title match. Here, they keep it to the opening sequence and nothing after that. What they did end up doing was super physical with both women taking some big bumps. Niven actually pinballed around really well for a woman her size. Didn't particularly care for Piper showing remorse during the finish after having no problem crushing her throughout the match. Still a very good match. ***1/2
  10. I was looking forward to this because Santana is usually, solid and occasionally great, while Niven is always fun to watch. This was clearly the best laid out match of the first round. The whole thing flowed really well with some nice transitions and worked in both of their offenses in smoothly. The finish was nicely done to considering they were working a TV length match. Very good stuff. ***3/4
  11. Artist of Stardom Championship: Team Jungle (Hiroyo Matsumoto, Jungle Kyona & Kaori Yoneyama) © vs. Queen's Quest (HZK, Io Shirai & Viper) A solid match for Io's return. I thought she looked great, and she did some new flippy stuff. Viper ends up crushing Kyona's face and causing a nosebleed, and I thought it added to the match visually. It's also nice to see HZK pick up the big win. ***
  12. Wonder of Stardom Championship: Mayu Iwatani © vs. Viper This was good. An obvious filler match, from the moment it was announced, but good. Mayu puts on a great performance as she fights hard for her big comeback; she's getting cut off and ragdolled before she rallies for her second wind, and Viper bumps like crazy. ***3/4
  13. This is a rematch of their first title match in February of last year. The big difference here is that Io is now a heel leading her Queen's Quest group, but other than using some rough tactics in the first half of the match it doesn't change up the dynamic between the two of them. In the end, it's still the ace champion trying to find a way to get the win over the monster challenger. Technically, I thought that the work in this match was better than their first title match together. Viper especially, looked much better hitting some nice, squishy, big girl offense plus doing a good job of selling throughout. This match does lack the strong narrative that their first match had as you have already seen Io beat Viper so there is less intrigue as to how Io is going to pull out the win. Still, the finish run is impressive especially the suplexes that Io is able to pull off on Viper which makes it this a match worth checking out. ***1/2
  14. This is a typical, but fun, 'Big vs. Small' match. Io works it as a mix of '90 Manami Toyota and '00 Rey Mysterio, she use a lot of her big high-spots for offense but also does a lot of juking to keep her bigger opponent off balance. Like the tag title match from the previous show, Viper's offense looks squishy again with Io doing some big bumping and selling to really put it over. Nothing too special about this match, but still highly entertaining. ***1/2
  15. This is Hojo's first defense of the Wonder of Stardom title that she won back in May. This match is worked differently than Viper's match with Io Shirai for the Red Belt back in February. That match was more of a traditional title match, where as this one has a clear face/heel dynamic. Hojo's over-the-top personality help make the match as her body language really put over Viper's size and sell her offense. Very entertaining match with a great performance from Hojo. ***3/4
  16. This is a tag match building to the Wonder of Stardom title match between Hojo and Viper. Hojo was really good here, especially in emoting and bumping to put over Viper's size. This was the best that Chelsea's looked since coming back from injury. She's had some rough performances on this tour but solid hitting her stuff here. Leah Vaughan has good ring presence she just needs more experience to add some polish to her ring work. In the end, the highlight was the Hojo/Viper interaction that makes you look forward to their title match. ***1/2
  17. Match Link This is a 'Survivor Series' style tag with battle royal over-the-top eliminations as well. The World team gets off to a good start by being the more in sync team, which was surprising. They actually put over Viper strong as she pretty much takes out all of the Stardom women on her own, pinning Kyouga to get the first elimination. In the middle portion of the match they do a good job of giving the lower ranked women a chance to work some competitive sequences before getting eliminated. There is even some nice top rope teases before both Hojo and Santana get eliminated at the same time. Just a really fun match from start to finish, which is just what you want out of this type of match. ****
  18. Yet another entertaining Thunder Rock tag match. I can't really say that they are the best team in the world right now but, to me, they are the most reliable because they always have at least a good match with everybody that they face. Here, they are up against two newcomers in Diemond and Viper. Diemond is really solid in-ring and plays the role of foreign heel well. Viper is fun as a big woman in the mold of a John Tenta or One Man Gang. I really like how she throws her weight into all of her offense which makes it extra squishy. Iwatani is great here, fearlessly eating her opponents offense and selling like crazy. Io is just puts in her usual great performance. A high quality main event. *** 3/4
