Two of the top women from the UK indie scene made their Japanese debuts this weekend, debuting with Sendai Girls at their Sunday night Joshi Puroresu Big Show 2018 in Sendai, Japan. Ireland’s indie veteran Rhia O’Reilly and England’s wunderkid Millie McKenzie debuted as a tag team in a loss to Sendai veterans DASH Chisako and Hiroyo Matusumoto (who has been featured in the 2018 Mae Young Classic).
