It was only a matter of time before Kana stepped into a SHIMMER ring, hopefully she can put some renewed interest back into the promotion (at least for me anyways). Might fly out to the tapings, but I don't know the capacity of the Berwyn Eagles Club so they may sell out pretty quick. I expect SHIMMER to pull the Shirai Sisters soon enough as well and maybe we can get a Triple Tails 6 Man Tag against some SHIMMER talent. Now that is a volume I would invest in.

V37 was great. I'll write something resembling a proper review soon.

Lots of awesome old school booking, tag ranks growing, fresh characters, Eagles bloodied and bruised by Merc.

Kana is not a big deal. She is just a wrestler in the womens division on the Smash WWE wannabe promotion in Japan. She couldn't put any butts in seats in a Womens company in Japan. She is contributing a lot to the slow killing off of the all womens promotions over there, they even turned it into a storyline.

There is a joke. Kana is magic, she makes Joshi fans disappear.

Appearently Ozaki disagrees with you, she started booking Kana for Oz Academy again. Kana's first appearance since the Passion Red outfall. Even the S-Ovation girls started working with Kana again.

SHIMMER Volume 37

- MsChif is back and looked better than she has for a while. Had a cool ring jacket too.

- Mena Libra has potential.

- LuFisto-Nakagawa was good. Again a SHIMMER original begins to return to form.

- Very solid new gimmick for Danger/Bates. Leva's ring work is getting better. She needs to keep it cartoonish IMO.

- CVE-SDR was built up by an earlier segment, where Del Rey threw Von Eerie out of the locker room. The veteran was shown bullying the younger girl while everyone just sat there awkwardly, not wanting to say anything. They also play upon the fact that both girls are from California. Good stuff.

- CVE won a decent match, with the first old school finish of the night (a lucky countout). Lot's of good booking on this show. Not just your typical finisher-123 stuff.

- The Knight Dynasty were fucking awesome. Saraya is the epitome of a ring general. They got tons of heat, had great characters and used a couple of old school tactics. One of which led to Ariel being DQ'd for using a foreign object, that had been thrown in by (Knights' manager) Rebecca Knox. Really had the crowd throughout.

- Deeb's spear is a great finisher.

- Hamada-McKay was perfect but too short (if that makes sense). It's a must-see match but, ideally, they could have done with more time, to play around with. One of the downfalls of having 11 matches on a show.

- 3S vs. Ninjas is one of the better SHIMMER tag matches ever. Lot's of good tag wrestling on this show. Prazak is obviously commited to developing that division now. Judging by the spoilers, that was a theme of this whole set of four shows. Crowd popped hard for the title switch but I'd question the wisdom of taking the belts off the Ninjas, when it's too early for it to lead, directly, to a break-up. The fact that the Ninjas beat themselves with Funky Cold Medina was, again, a very clever bit of old school wrestling psychology.

- Eagles vs. Martinez was a really good title defense. Eagles was forced to wrestle the challengers match (street thuggery), which always makes sense, in a title defense. They brawled all over the venue, old school falsies came into play (Eagles bounced out of the ring on Merc's finish) and the Champ somehow scraped out a win, despite being covered in lumps and bumps with a bust nose. One of those "now you're a champion" defenses.

Really good show, that showed lots of promise for the future. Plenty of fresh ideas, all over the product.

Because nothing is happening over there, Joshi is dying as an industry. They are scraping the bottom of the barrel, desperate.

Kana's awesome. As is SMASH. It's certainly not a "wannabe WWE promotion". Yes, it's a Engrish translation of Sports Entertainment but it's a deliberate attempt to create an alternative to traditional puro. It's not some lazy, copycat thing. It's more of a parody, if anything.

SMASH's women's wrestling is great. I'm a big fan of Kana, Syuri, Makoto, Serena, Mio & Io Shirai and others that have appeared on their shows.

I can't help but think that you edited "J-Diva" out of your post for a reason. If you're going to play "that guy", at least commit to it.

SMASH's women's division isn't successful. It's just a novelty. The people who watch SMASH always complain about not wanting the women on the show. KANA is a J-Diva and they don't draw or make big money for anyone like the old stars of Joshi who were strong. People don't want to pay to see J-Divas just like they don't Divas. They avoid shows with Divas and J-Divas, people want strong Joshi.
