I keep thinking I'm gonna give nagashimark a break, but with great Japanese female wrestling videos like this one, who can?
This one is a match between two great Joshi wrestlers, Mima Shimoda and Etsuko Mita that took place in the NEO wrestling promotion in 1998.
Mima was born on 23, 1970 and she made her pro wrestling debut against Etsuko Mita back in 1987 at Korakuen Hall in Tokyo.
Etsuko was born on May 28, 1969 in Toyko and at one time was part of a very successful tag-team with Mima.
She is also credited with creating the "Death Valley Driver", a brutal finishing move that is a brainbuster type slam performed from a fireman's carry.
I have also heard that the move is banned in some promotions for being too dangerous.
This video has the two former tag-team partners facing off, and it seems there is a great deal of animosity between them.
They face off, trade a few opening moves and size each other up.
Etsuko get Mima down early on, and Mima retaliates by biting her on the knee.
Etsuko gets Mima down and clamps on a figure four leg-lock.
Which puts Mima in a world of hurt.
Mima escapes the figure four, and clamps one of her own on Etsuko.
Not satisfied with that, Mima rolls her over and applies a toe-hold.
But Etsuko escapes and the match goes out of the wrestling ring and into the crowd.
Here is part one of the match
