Some Thoughts

TCS have already added some new teams to the fray and it’s leading to fresh matchups

Priestley has been booked strong lately so the Red Belt challenge isn’t a surprise but the timing is admittedly odd

Hana’s group finally got their official name and it’s a very Hana Kimura name

Hazuki has challengers lining up for the high speed title after the draw with Kid and the continued teases of a match with Arisa Hoshiki

Speaking of Hoshiki, she will become a full-time wrestler in May.  She had previously been splitting time between music and wrestling.  I wouldn’t be surprised to see her get a title now that she’s committed

Konami and Kyona are now two of the most interesting characters in Stardom.  Konami has completely abandoned her former faction QQ and has an edge

Kyona, on the other hand, is still reeling from the loss of JAN but is slowly coming around to the idea of working with Hana

The Stardom Draft has done it’s job in shaking things up in Stardom as the middle of the card has become more exciting

Stardom returns to Korakuen Hall on the 29th of April for the Cinderella Tournament.  The winner of the tournament earns a wish
