The first day of STARDOM’s New Summer 2020 event took place earlier today. An action-packed card saw the return of former AEW Women’s Champion, Riho for the first time since Feb, 16.
This was STARDOM’s second event since returning from lockdown because of the Coronavirus pandemic. Similar to last month’s STARDOM Is Again!, the event took place at Shinkiba 1st Ring in front of sold out minimal capacity crowd of 140 people.
The event kicked off with tag team action, which saw four members of Tokyo Cyber Squad, Death Yama and Rina vs. Konami and the returning Jungle Kyona. Konami and Kyona would emerge victorious when Konami defeated Rina via submission. After the match all four members would pose together.
The second match was STARS vs. Queen’s Quest Tag Match. STAR’s Tamu Nakano and Saya Iida take on Queen’s Quest members Utami Hayashishita and Saya Kamitani. The match would close when Utami pinned Iida with a German Suplex.
The third match was Donna del Mondo’s Syuri vs. STAR’s Starlight Kid. Syuri would defeat Starlight Kid with a vicious armbar submission.
The fourth match had the returning High Speed Champion, Riho team with World of Stardom Champion, Mayu Iwatani. The title-holding duo would take on Momo Watanabe and AZM.
Iwatani would claim the victory for her and Riho when she submitted AZM with a modified Dragon Sleeper.
The fifth and final match of the event was Six-Woman Tag Match. Giulia, Himeka and Maika of Donna del Mondo faced Oedo Tai’s Natsuko Tora, Saki Kashima and Natsu Sumire.
The victory would fall to Oedi Tai as Saki pinned Giulia with a surprise roll-up. This is Giulia’s first loss in STARDOM and a massive shock to the leader of Donna del Mondo. After the match, Saki challenged Donna del Mondo for the Artist of Stardom Championships.
