Hello!

I'm new here and I was wondering if anyone here is a fan of women's wrestling in Japan? As a beginner, which videos should I watch to see the VERY best of women's wrestling in Japan?

BTW, I've read a lot about Manami Toyota. Was she among the better performers there?

The All Japan Women Dream Slam shows are great too, either of them would be a good pickup.

PRESENT! I'm quite a japanese women's wrestling (or joshi) fanatic and have been for some time, mainly because the women in the WWE (apart from the obvious) are sluts, and dumb ones at that. Manami Toyota is insane, she does all these crazy highspots, especially ones that could easily take her out of the sport. Her energy is unbelievable, and I know I'll get some agreement, she screams louder than Stephanie McMahon. Yes, her pitch is higher than Steph's, and I got plenty of evidence. She's a legend, by the way, wrestling since the mid-late 80s.

Is she good, well she did get inducted in the WON Hall of Fame couple of years ago, so yeah. I would recommend also, Big Egg Wrestling Universe Click Here (highspots.com) Her match with Aja Kong is considered a classic, and all you need to know about Manami will become clear once you see that. Trust me. You can get it cheaper, and on DVD somewhere, but I forgot where. Highspots is a good place though. Welcome aboard, and if you have any joshi questions, we're here for ya. Well, me and DEAN, I guess, lol.

I've been thinking for a while that the only thing that could make the women's division worth watching again would be a bit of Japanese action. Although the Lita/Trish matches haven't been bad, everything else has, and with Lita's injury i don't really see the point in continuing with any women's matches at all. Someone coming in capable of holding a belt other than the women's would be awesome. Shove a Funaki feud in there with a bad storyline and you've got instant entertainment.

I actually don't have much of a problem with Goldberg being signed. It is the Scott Stieners' and the Big Show's I have trouble with. Goldberg may not be the highest quality wrestler in the buisness, but he is a huge draw and will always hit his spots.
