The 5STAR Grand Prix 2022 has come to an end after two months of action. The grueling round-robin tournament pits some of Stardom’s best against one another to win not only the crown, but a shot at the world championship. This year’s winner was none other than Donna Del Mondo’s Giulia who defeated long-time rival Tam Nakano in the final after squeaking through her block following a draw with Suzu Suzuki.

Ever since her Stardom debut in 2019, she has become one of the biggest stars in the company, and some would argue she is the focal point of the promotion.
