STARDOM showcase bouts are official.
NJPW announced Momo Watanabe and Saya Kamitani will face the team of Maika and Lady C at night one of Wrestle Grand Slam on September 4 in the STARDOM showcase match. The following night, Watanabe and Kamitani return to take on DDM’s Artist of STARDOM Tag Team Champions Syuri and Giulia.
As previously announced, the STARDOM showcase matches will air on NJPW World for the first time.
This weekend, STARDOM had fans buzzing with the announcement that showcase matches set for MetLife Dome on September 4 & 5 will be broadcast for the very first time on NJPW World. Those matches have now been signed and official, with two big tag bouts set to kick off the action this weekend!
On Saturday September 4, Queen’s Quest members Momo Watanabe and Saya Kamitani will face the team of Maika and Lady C. As the imposing Lady C is scouted by the factions in STARDOM, will she impress the Strong Girl Maika and Donna Del Mondo at large? Or will the QQ combination of Watanabe and Kamitani prove too much?
On Sunday September 5, Watanabe and Kamitani return to take on DDM’s Artist of STARDOM Tag Team Champions Syuri and Giulia. As the 5 Star GP, STARDOM’s equivalent to the G1 Climax, continues, Syuri will be less than 24 hours removed from a league bout with Utami Hayashishita in Shinjuku that will have fans no doubt abuzz. It will also leave certain damage carried into a bout that could well have title implications in the future.
