One of my favorite Hiroyo protraits (Photo: Takehisa Aoikougei Kashima)
In what seemed to be a beautiful November day on the streets of Tokyo various promotions and freelancers came together to promote wrestling with a free exhibition. DIANA was there with their whole stable and some male wrestlers as well. The marquee women's matchup was Hiroyo Matsumoto v the great Aja Kong. JOSHIMANIA fans are in a virtual frenzy with less than a month to go before seeing Aja Kong on US soil for her opening match -- recently announced -- against Sara Del Rey in Philadelphia on December 2. I cannot wait!
Here are some photos of today's event by talented Joshi Puroresu photographer Takehisa Aoikougei Kashima.

Hiroyo takes one on the chin
The Power of Kong!
. . . more humiliation for Hiroyo at the hand of Aja Kong . . .
Hiroyo gets dumped on her head
Hiroyo with a missle drop kick
Aja with a diving elbow off the top! Yikes!
Needless to say, that ended Hiroyo's afternoon
Victorious Aja Kong!
