Match-of-the-Day: December 7

Competitors: Manami Toyota v Toshie Uematsu

Card: Match 5, Night #1

Time: 19:50

Finisher: Ocean Cyclone Suplex

Highlight: Manami working her old magic -- chasing around the outside, Manami roll, cross body off top to outside, Ocean Cyclone Suplex finisher -- and for nearly 20 minutes!  Are you kidding me?!  It went by in a flash.  These pros are amazing -- Toshie every bit as much as "The Great One" Toyota.
