Yeah, the theme kinda bug me, should do new tune instead mix it.
She did way more than that.Wrestlers pick their own ring names - or provide a list and one is chosen by the FO from the list. The Viking Experience reeked of Rowe (and Sarah Logan) - LARPing to them is interesting and enjoyable and part of their life.
I like this better for Kairi as she's acting/playing a theater role with her Pirate Princess stuff than the NXT explanation that she sailed boats in her free time and thus "pirate princess" makes all the sense because of that.
Kabuki was started by a woman and originally had women until it was banned and only confined to the stage where women weren't allowed to perform.It's a form of Japanese theater that is traditionally performed with an all male cast. It's an ill fitting name as they have no kabuki theme (even the mask Asuka sometimes wears is from Noh theater), but they are also both women.
By 1603-1604 Okuni had reached the height of her popularity, and had established stages in various parts of the city. Her plays were addressed primarily to the common people; but she soon attracted the attention of the nobility, and was invited to play at the residence of the Shogun. There is a record of at least one invitation to play before the Imperial Court in 1603-1604.
Such success led to imitation, and the number of Kabuki playhouses multiplied; but, in spite of occasional signs of aristocratic favor, Kabuki remained essentially an entertainment of the common people--in reality a protest against social as well as dramatic conventions. Those who devoted themselves to its interests were men without honourable employment and women from the prostitute quarters. Gross immorality and unbridled licentiousness made it a social danger; and as early as 1608 official order confined it to the outskirts of the cities. In 1629 Onna Kabuki was strictly prohibited, avowedly because of its immoral influence, possibly because of its being also a hotbed of dangerous thought and popular freedom.
The doom of Onna Kabuki seems to have been foreseen by some, for in 1617 Dansuke, who had been conducting a company of women, founded the first company composed of men-players only. Men, especially young men, had played in Onna Kabuki; and it probably was not difficult to build up a company from these and from men about town, as the downfall of the Ashikaga Shogunate had left many of its natural supporters without employment. As women were forbidden the stage, young men held a monopoly of the female parts; and for this reason the new companies and their plays were known as Wakashu Kabuki.
Kabuki is actually a common expression in the wrestling world. It's a word for a type of theater, drama, dance.I laughed out loud. I think Vince literally Googled Japanese names, saw that name, and was intrigued. Kabuki is literally a word for male dancers lol.
