As for the director, it is Jun Yoriko, whose work includes “Birthday” (2022 Cannes Film Festival), and stage productions of “Sengoku BASARA” & “BIOHAZARD.”

This time, it will be made into a movie! !! Withdrawal turned a life that didn’t make sense to live into a truly amazing life! !!

Iwatani is currently only one of two women in Stardom to be considered a Grand Slam Champion. Second to only Io Shirai. The 29yo just solidified this achievement by capturing and being the current SWA World Championship. She won this title on May 5 at Golden Week Fight Tour from Thekla.
