Alpha Female etched her name in Joshi history earlier today by becoming the first European to hold a major women’s championship in Japan, when she ended Nanae Takahashi‘s 602-day reign as World of Stardom Champion.
After the match, Alpha, who remains undefeated in the promotion, humiliated Takahashi by draping the German flag over her body. Takahashi, who became the inaugural champion on July 24th, 2011, was visibly upset with her loss, breaking down in the middle of the ring and apologising for her failure, before being consoled by the rest of the roster.
Earlier in the show, which took place at Korakuen Hall, Tokyo, the other members of Alpha’s heel stable Kimura Monster-gun enjoyed yet more success, as gaijin supreme Hailey Hatred and stable leader Kyoko Kimura defeated Natsuki*Taiyo and Yoshiko to become the new Goddesses of Stardom Champions. Hatred now holds four different titles simultaneously, and the ridiculous thing is that that’s actually pretty low by her standards!
The final member of Kimura Monster-gun, “Amazon” Ayesha Ray, also continued her impressive start to life in Stardom, by defeating Act Yasukawa, Kaori Yoneyama and Yuhi in a four-way match. Elsewhere on the card, the soon-to-be-retiring Wonder of Stardom Champion Yuzuki Aikawa received only the fourth singles loss of her career against Meiko Satomura, while Kairi Hojo and Natsumi Showzuki won a five-team Tag Team Gauntlet Match, defeating Io Shirai and Mayu Iwatani in the final bout.
