Yokohama Dream Cinderella

On April 4th, Stardom runs the Yokohama Budokan as they present their first PPV event since the successful All Star Dream Cinderella event at the Nippon Budokan. Stardom once again has a loaded lineup with three championships on the line as well as the all-out war between STARS and Oedo Tai coming to a head. Let’s not waste any time and take a look at the card for Yokohama Dream Cinderella 2021 in Spring!

All Out War

STARS vs Oedo Tai all out war

This huge match could shake the foundations of both factions. As per the stipulation, the final person eliminated will be forced to join the opposing faction. Meaning that any member of STARS c0uld be going to the dark side to join Oedo Tai or an Oedo Tai member will have to see the light should they lose.

One little wrinkle that could change things is that Starlight Kid stated that STARS would look to embarrass Oedo Tai and reject the losing Oedo Tai member, meaning that none of them would have to join STARS. This leads us to believe that STARS will be coming away from this with the win in order to avoid changing the faction alignment. But, this is Stardom, and Stardom loves to throw a curveball at their audience on occasion so we could see one of Mayu Iwatani‘s closest allies forced to join her enemies.

Wonder Of Stardom Championship: Tam Nakano (c) vs Natsupoi

Tam Nakano vs Natsupoi

The history between these two women dates back to Actwres girl’Z. Both are credited as trainees of Yuna Manase and trained in the same class, debuting just a few months apart. Somewhere along the line, the relationship between the two became fractured leading to Natsupoi ripping up photos of the two at the press conference building to Yokohama Dream Cinderella. Natsupoi pinned Tam Nakano in a triple threat match leading up to this show to plant a seed of doubt in people’s minds but Nakano is likely to defeat her former friend/current rival. These two have worked pretty well together every time they’ve faced off in the lead up to this match so this one could steal the show.

World Of Stardom Championship: Utami Hayashishita (c) vs Bea Priestley

Utami Hayashishita vs Bea Priestley

Bea Priestley has Utami Hayashishita‘s number. Hayashishita has beaten almost everyone Stardom has put in front of her since her insane rookie year in 2018, but Bea Priestley is the exception. In the lead-up to this match, Hayashishita has had her momentum halted while Priestley has beaten all three women that Hayashishita has successfully defended her world title against. Stardom has done an excellent job of making Bea Priestley the biggest threat to Utami Hayashishita’s reign so far which should make for a very dramatic watch for fans who will be on tenterhooks waiting to see if Priestley becomes a two-time world champion in Stardom.

Goddess Of Stardom Championship: Maika & Himeka (c) vs Giulia & Syuri

Yokohama Dream Cinderella

Donna Del Mondo clashes as the Goddess of Stardom champions Maika and Himeka make their third defense against Syuri and Giulia. In any normal circumstance, Giulia and Syuri would almost be guaranteed a win in this match as they both have significant skills and successes in singles competition. With Giulia coming off her loss to Tam Nakano and having a changed attitude, as well as a shaved head, she has lost a step in the ring. While Syuri is talented, she isn’t talented enough to carry the current Giulia against the well-oiled machine of Maika and Himeka.  here’s some added tension to this match following the recent unit tournament which saw some miscommunication between Giulia and Himeka & Maika in a trios match. We expect the champions to retain here. What that means for DDM going forward is very interesting to see as Giulia may not take another big loss well.
