High Speed Championship: (C) Hazuki Defeat Starlight Kid
Post Match: AZM challenges Hazuki for the title
Starlight Kid has moved to the next level. Stardom’s twitter has made sure to emphasize just how good she has fought in her two title matches. They have made it clear that she has moved beyond being a rookie.
Hana Kimura has really become aimless. After her hot heel turn in October, she is now just losing multi-person tag matches without an established faction to back her.
Tam Nakano has been picking up falls as she builds to her big match with Momo Watanabe.
Based on these shows would you even know Jungle Kyona is challenging Kagetsu for the title?
Bea Priestley has been picking up some falls – depending on the length of her tour she will probably get a title shot based on her good booking.
The Utami Hayashishita super push continues as QQ as a whole don’t lose too much. Now a holder of two titles and possibly on her way to a third and fourth she will be covered in gold very soon.
This wave of imports have settled into their roles nicely. Hayter joining Oedo Tai was a welcome surprise, Tyler and Gibbs have sided with Kimura as heels and Gracia has mostly taken pinfalls with STARS.
Confirmed Stardom 9th Anniversary January 14th
The currently announced card for Stardom’s 9th Anniversary at Korakuen hall show is:
World Of Stardom Championship: Kagetsu (c) vs Jungle Kyona
Wonder Of Stardom Championship: Momo Watanabe (c) vs Tam Nakano
SWA and EVE International Championships: Viper (c) vs Utami Hayashishita

A pretty stacked lineup for Stardom’s anniversary show with three title matches. Based on current feuds, expect an Oedo Tai vs Hana and co. match on the card as well.
