Match-of-the-Day: October 12
Competitors: Ayumi Kurihara/Ayako Hamada v Canadian Ninjas
Volume: 44 -- eleventh match
Finisher: Uranage (on Portia)
Highlight: Ayumi and Ayako prove how formidable they can be. They take the ninjas all over the ring -- inside and out -- chairs and cheaters. Ayako hit a moonsault with a chiar -- a la KAORU. Great match -- the winner definitely deserved the belts. This victory guaranteed that Ayako and Ayumi will be back in Spring of 2012! Ganbatte!
