Mima Shimoda wrestling Etsuko Mita

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 Shimoda - japanese girl wrestlingMima was born on 23, 1970 and she made her pro wrestling debut against Etsuko Mita back in 1987 at Korakuen Hall in Tokyo.

Etsuko Mita - japanese women wrestlingEtsuko 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.

Mima Shimoda was great. She knew how to dress too. Wasn't she one of the Tokyo Sweethearts?
