Arisa Nakajima vs. Yumiko Hotta - JWP - 12/28/2008 - *****
First match I've rated ***** since 2004, iirc. Hotta is an unstoppable bitch, and Nakajima can't so much as hurt her. A lot of this is either Hotta slapping Nakajima around effortlessly or Nakajima throwing offense which Hotta just shrugs off, making her look like an ineffectual little girl against an unstoppable monster. Which is exactly why this works. Hotta beats on Nakajima until she can't even stand, while Nakajima refuses to stop getting back up. She just keeps coming and coming and coming, trying again until she can find something that works. In the end, Hotta is just too much for her, but even after the match Nakajima just won't stop.
I really have to see the rest of this feud. I can't remember the last time I've seen a match this good.
THIS MAN SPEAKS TRUTH!
WWE should do an angle where Nick Hogan hits Stone Cold with a car
so they can set up the Hogan/Austin dream match that will never happen
