Hey folks, welcome to part two of my review of the All Japan Women Tokyo Dome show. It's good to know that part one got a strong response from Wienerville (not), but that's okay, you're waiting for the second half. You got it! We are at the second tape of the two tape long show, so here we go!

It starts with more hype of the V*Top Woman tournament including a few words from the participants. My japanese sucks, so I'll have to leave it at that. Then we go back to the Dome for the official intros of the competitors. In order:

Aja Kong (WWWA singles champion)
Yumiko Hotta
Manami Toyota
Dynamite Kansai (JWP)
Eagle Sawai (LLPW)
Combat Toyota (FMW)
Kyoko Inoue
Akira Hokuto

The matches: Combat Toyota/Hotta, Hokuto/Sawai, Kong/Manami Toyota, Inoue/Kansai.

Before the tournament starts, we check out the debut of Blizzard Yuki. She was supposed to be the next big thing in AJW, but the workrate gave her serious injuries, and she had to retire early. Here she takes on a much younger Mariko Yoshida, who would go on to become one of the best technical wrestlers on the planet this side of Benoit in ARSION. Here, she's mixing up technical stuff with some flying. Yuki willfully beats Yoshida here, but the potential shown in both wrestlers is apparent. To save bandwidth, I'll give you a link to a more detailed and far more experienced review of the tournament matches themselves:

Even if I had the bandwidth, I don't think I could pull off a better review than this. Aja Kong/Manami Toyota and Kong/Kansai stood out because I saw how much of a pounding Both Manami and Dynamite can take. Those two wouldn't stay down. I also of course enjoyed Bull Nakano schooling Alundra Blayze. Madusa was NOT ready for that at all. Poor showing by our WWF. Let's see what happens if we sent Trish instead! The Michinoku Pro match was fun too. I especially loved the final with Hokuto and Kong. The ending stood out more than anything else. Whew, once you see the great Aja crying, it will make you believe. This kind of emotion ain't fake, folks.

Verdict: Both tapes had their share of classics and even the just okay matches were fun. It was a big show atmosphere that I really think is once in a lifetime, and I'm glad it's available for us fans. Sometimes when you just get really cynical while watching sports entertainment (like I do), it's okay to just want WRESTLING for a while. Bigg Egg Universe delivers here. I know you're wondering where can I find this classic, here's where:

I got both tapes for $24, but you can get them separately for 12 bucks each. I'd recommend you get both so you can experience the whole event unfolding before you. It's under tape numbers J15 and J16. That about wraps it up.

By the way, if you enjoy this review or if you got any of the tapes I looked at recently, let me know, pretty please? Soon, I once again look back on the heyday of All Japan Women with Wrestlemarinpiad '94. Toodles!

Since I'm one of the few people responding, let me say that I'm glad you're writing these and am glad you found some wrestling to keep you enthused about the business.

I know that if it weren't for Lucha and Toryumon, I'd hardly be watching anything right now.

Wrest'94 is a tremendous show, if I remember right, with the psychotic Hokuto match on it.

Much appreciated, my man. I do what I can to stay interested, because after all, those lie detector tests won't boost business overnight, you know.

I'll second that puro and joshi LOVE right there with ya both! With New Japan, Toryumon (esp. T2P and Toryumon X), and old UWFi tapes, I'm set for wrestling action and can basically only watch WWE when my faves are on (Tajiri CHEATS TO WIN now!).

It did me a world of good to see that not EVERYONE suffers from the same lack of creativity that the WWE is.

**ROH rocks too if you ever get the chance to see it live or on Memorex!

Ringmistress, have you experimented with any other Japanese styles (besides the women)? Truth be told, there's enough tape out there for you to spend a lifetime watching, analyzing and reviewing Joshi. You'll also see the true innovators of some of the sickest moves ever devised!



Two hours later they decided to stop at a diner
Because they loved the smell of eggs and coffee
I just had to smoke a cigarette and wear a hat
By the time that they set off again, the sun was starting to set
It made the sky look red like a nuclear ray
One of them said "what do you want more than anything
in this whole wide world
Do you want money, do you want sex, or do you want all that success?"
I thought about that one myself
(Then they came upon the thing)

To answer that EastCoastAvenger, I have seen other Japanese wrestling with the men. I've seen some Zero-One (Dick Togo is the MAN) and ROH as well. But I always wanted to see some joshi, especially after seeing a cage match with Kaoru Ito and Momoe Nakanishi vs. Mima Shimoda and Etsuko Mita. That was so much fun, I got the itch ever since. I'm concentrating on Joshi right now, but I'll also try some Zero One when I get the chance.

I thought maybe he was going for the "boss let's the other guys they the beatdown", similar to a godfather, or Hollywood Hogan, but I am not sure. Actually, I am not really sure he is the leader.
