Prelude to Violence 2: CZW pics

CZW had it's Prelude to Violence 2 show last night in Philly.  Women's wrestling fans would have been thrilled to see Kyoko Inoue take on Sumie Sakai.  According to reports the CZW crowd was less than appreciative when the women came out.  CZW books very few women's matches and crowd impatience -- and lust for hardcore gore -- may be the reason why.  Nevertheless, reports note that these two Joshi veterans won a vocal segment of the crowd over by the end of the match.

The shots below tell you why Adam Cole is the most envied champion in CZW




Mia is proud of her man!

Kyoko was in town to recruit for her new Diana promotion in Japan.  Diana announced that Sumie Sakai will be a member of the promotion which means that Kyoko will be returning to the USA and Sumie will also travel to Japan.  Annie Social and Rain recently did a stint with Diana last month, and Jamilia Craft will be officially announced tomorrow on Diva Dirt Live as a new gaijin member of the Diana roster.  She will wrestle without her mask and go by the ring name Jenny Rose.   earlier today Kyoko supervised tryouts of gaijin workers for Diana.  I have had no word on how those went or if any new wrestlers have been signed.

Kyoko had much love for all after the match

Also on the bill last night was Adam Cole and his manager/"girl friend", Mia Yim.  Mia continues to rock her new Harajuku Street Style with the school girl tartan skirt and the over-the-knee socks, right down to the cute little bow in her hair.  It's a great look for Mia (and I think it reminds her that her return to Japan in July is just around the corner).

Mia and Adam are a hot couple!
