Yuzuki Aikawa's Anniversary Show (One Year in Ring)

Yuzuki Aikawa's debut poster from October 29, 2010

Tokyo's 1st Ring Kiba was packed with a crowd of 325 people today for the 1st year anniversary show of Stardom's idol phenom Yuzuki Aikawa.  It does seem implausible how much she has accomplished in a single year.  She has the Stardom Jr. belt (over Biko) and has become one of the most popular young wrestlers in Joshi Puroresu.  All this after the wrestling media in Japan gave her very little chance of proving good in that she adapted from being a bikini model and an teen idol pop star to a bona fide wrestler with an impressive striking arsenal -- especially her leathal high kicks.

Mr. Youji Kawauchi was in attendance and took outstanding photos (as he always does) of the exciting tag match that marked the anniversary show.

Match:  Nanae Takahashi/Hiroyo Matsumoto v Syuri/Yuzuki Aikawa

Time:  23:43

Finisher:  Nanae with a Northern Lights Suplex on Yuzuki
