Some Thoughts

Cinderella Tournament did a great job of showcasing the talent that Stardom is looking to push.  Arisa Hoshiki, Starlight Kid, Natsuko Tora, and Konami got a lot of shine and established themselves as serious players.

Saya Iida is being placed at the top of the rookie totem pole.  She got a singles win over Onozaki and the pinfall win in a tag match which is more than her fellow rookies Rina, Hina etc.

Bea Priestley has always been booked strong by Stardom so them putting the red belt on her isn’t the world’s biggest shock as they have clearly always been high on her.

Oedo Tai is going through a rebrand it seems, new gear, new music, no more dance, and Kagetsu maybe taking a step back all suggest a change is coming for Oedo Tai.

Toni Storm and Momo Watanabe ending in a draw could be seen from a mile away as Storm’s booking in Stardom is some of the most predictable around

Starlight Kid was made to look good on every show as she was the sole survivor in an elimination match and took the fight to Hazuki in the title match as well as making it far in the Cinderella Tournament

Post Draft Stardom is super exciting right now with so many new developments and new wrestlers getting pushed

Natsu Sumire is such an entertaining midcard act and her feud with Kashima has given both a little spotlight

Arisa Hoshiki is a credible threat to Momo Watanabe and I finally feel like someone may dethrone Watanabe
