Japanese Female Wrestlers - Ai Fujita

Japanese female wrestler Ai Fujita seems to be showing a recent upsurge in interest.
Ai was born on February 15 1976 and actually had two pro wrestling debuts.
She debuted against La Amapola in 1998 in Mexico, and in 1999 in a tag team match with Candy Okutsu against Ayako Hamada (current TNA Knockout Hamada) and Mika Akino in Japan.

Here is part one of a match between Ai Fujita and Momoe Nakanishi posted by...take a wild guess...yes, nagashimark on YouTube

Doesn't the interviewer kinda look like Hiro Nakamura on "Heroes"?
Of course you can see the second part of the match and more Japanese female wrestlers on nagashimark's YouTube channel.

Japanese Female Wrestler - Cuty Suzuki (Cutie Suzuki)

Cuty Suzuki - Cutie Suzuki - japan female wrestling

And next to Chikako Shiratori, the most popular Japanese female wrestler here lately is the lady that was in the video I linked to last time, Cuty Suzuki (Cutie Suzuki).
Cuty was born on October 22, 1969 in Kawaguchi, Saitama, Japan and made her pro wrestling debut on September 19, 1986.
Cuty is retired now, but during her career, she held the UWA Junior Wrestling title, the JWP Junior Wrestling title and one half of the JWP Tag Team Women's Wrestling titles five times.
Twice with Mayumi Ozaki, once with Devil Masami and twice with Dynamite Kansai.

Here is a video of Cuty going up against Candy Okutsu in a JWP match from July 18, 1997, posted once again to YouTube by nagashimark.

Japanese Female Wrestling - Chikako Shiratori

Chikako Shiratori - japanese wrestling
How can anyone that pretty be that mean?

Since everyone seems to be on a Chikako Shiratori kick here, (Yes I read what everyone wants to see...) I thought I'd post this picture and this video link.

The vid was posted to Veoh by the famous Nagashimark and it's a battle between Chikako Shiratori and Cuty Suzuki.
And battle is the correct term.
These ladies go at it from the opening bell wide open.
And Chikako plays the consummate old school heel, smiling when she is punishing Cuty.
She seems to really enjoy hurting her opponent.

You can see the whole video here

And as always, after you watch it, if you like the vid, subscribe to Nagashimark's channel to show your appreciation for getting this Joshi action out to the public.

The Top Ten Japanese Female Wrestlers in August

I haven't done a top ten of Japanese female wrestlers here in awhile, so here we go.

1. Hamada
Without a doubt the most popular Japanese lady wrestler on here.
Of course the worldwide exposure on TNA has a "little" something to do with that.
I'm hoping that might start some more interest in Joshi Puroresu over here.

2. Kaori Yoneyama
Surprisingly to me, Kaori Yoneyama came in at the second postion.
Last month HybridDolphinELPS put up a video tribute to Kaori on YouTube that you can see here:

3. Francoise
Last month, the lovely Francoise, recently from Hustle, came in at number three.
Here's a short video of Francoise wrestling another Japanese beauty Cherry posted by persicummalum on YouTube

4. Misaki Ohata
Coming in at number four is Misaki Ohata.
You can see a video of Misaki wrestling Sachiko posted by kapengmabula on YouTube here:

5. Momoe Nakanishi
Japanese female wrestler Momoe Nakanishi came in at number five last month.
Here is a video of Momoe Nakanishi taking on Ayako Hamada (Yes, now TNA Knockout Hamada) at the AJW 35th Anniversary Show, May 11 2003 posted by the infamous DoubleMiz on YouTube:

6. Chaparrita Asari
The high flying Chaparrita Asari came in at number six last month.
You can watch a video of Chaparrita ASARI wrestling Baby-A from the ARSION 5th Anniversary Show, again posted by DoubleMiz on YouTube here:

7. Etsuko Mita
Etsuko Mita came in at nuber seven last month.
Here is a video of Etsuko Mita taking on Hiroyo Matsumoto posted by nagashimark over at YouTube.
The match is from the NEO Stage 09 tournament, semi finals on February 8, 2009.
You can see it here:

8. Kana
The popular Kana came in at number eight last month.
And here is a video of Kana taking on Minori Makiba at the May 5, 2009 NEO "May History", posted by yoshitonic1.

9. Kayoko Haruyama
Number nine last month was Kayoko Haruyama.
You can watch Kayoko Haruyama taking on Tojuki Leon on this video posted by kapengmabula on YouTube.

10. Mimi Hagiwara
And last, but not by any means least, is the beautiful Mimi Hagiwara.
Mimi no longer wrestles, but here is a video of her going up against Chigusa Nagayo. posted by hajimanko on YouTube

I'd like to thank all of these posters that have put up Joshi videos on YouTube, that give eveyone a chance to get in on the action.
If you go to the vids (sorry I didn't hyperlink them, but Goggle seems to get cranky if I do that too much in a post) make sure to subscribe to these posters channels.
And let them know you appreciate their work at getting these matches out there.

Hamada In TNA So Far

The most popular topic on this blog by far last month was Ayako Hamada, or just "Hamada" as she's now known in TNA.

Hamada made her debut on TNA Impact! on August 27th when she battled another veteran female wrestler Daffney in a No Disqualification match.
Hamada came out on top and she seemed to be pushed as a face.

Hamada In TNA So Far

Then the next week she teamed with Sojo Bolt to go up against Tara and Christy Hemme (considering their old WWE feud, an unusual combination).
Hamada and Bolt lost, and afterwards, Hamada hit Sojo with the Hamada Driver (Sitout scoop slam piledriver) for losing.
So is Hamada a face or a heel?
Or will they pull a Stone Cold and have her as a tween that might give anyone the Hamada Driver if she gets angry?

In case you missed the match, you can see the whole thing on YouTube here:

BTW, note the exchange between Hamada and Tara (my mark out moment) at the beginning that lead to a double kip up and applause from the TNA audience.
Applause during a female wrestling match?

Japanese Female Wrestling - Ladies of Hustle part 7 - Yinling

I said I could probably do a whole entry on just Yinling by herself and it's true.
And I doubt very seriously that I could cover everything here, but let's go.

Yingling was born on February 15, 1978 in Taipei, Taiwan.
Before joining the Japanese wrestling promotion Hustle, she was a swimsuit model and race queen.
She joined Hustle as Yinling, then became Newling-sama (Mistress Newling), then went back to being a heel after being shot by a laser beam by The Esperanza (a wrestling cyborg) during a wrestling match.
Did you think the Undertaker's lightning bolts were a stretch?

And then Yinling gave birth to 6'8, 500 pound sumo wrestler Monster Bono.
Oh yeah, he was hatched from an egg.
Remember what I said about the WWE on acid?

Yinling left Hustle and when she retired, her final match was against her "son" Monster Bono, who crushed her with a big splash.
Yeah, it killed her.
Not really though.

Here is one of Yinling's more bizarre incarnations in Hustle.....
