    Out of six bouts billed as “Pro-Wrestling versus MMA”, Pro-Wrestling walked away with only two victories. The main event was especially occasion for disconcert as reknowned Joshi star Kaoru Ito lost to Judoka Mika via armbar mid-way into the first round. Earlier on, Ito caught Mika with strong punches, both standing and in Mika’s guard. But it seemed that unfamiliarity with the MMA glove and rules proved her demise, as Ito herself later stated, as she simply never found a right rhythm to build on her offense. Afterwards, Ito expressed great interest in a future rematch, declaring she’d commit herself even moreso to training for the specificity of the MMA format.

    Aja Kong, on the other hand, looked proficient in her TKO victory over Rika Shimizu. Kong quickly grounded her opponent, her size advantage fully utilized, and initiated a vicious ground n’ pound assasult that forced the referee to end the bout in the second round after repeated success with the tactic.

    Champion Arm Wrestler Yoko Yamada, here representing Pro-Wrestling, fled the ring without comment after her quick loss to Maho Muranami via armbar. The bout lasted only a minute and Yamada had not dealt a single piece of offense in Muranami’s direction.

    Finally of note, Misato Nishijima, a popular bikini model, found herself the object of a brutal beating in her debut MMA bout. Prancing to the ring and performing a choreographed dance, Nishijima’s antics in no way prepared her for the assasult of Azusa Anzai. Anzai battered Nishijima with punches to the face and body for the two minutes and twenty seconds the bout lasted. Nishijima went down three times from her feet due to punches to the face, and the referee quickly called a halt to the action. Nishijima left the ring in tears and declared she’d never fight in MMA again.

    I’m very certain that Aja Kong is a former Ladies’ champion of the World Wrestling Federation (now World Wrestling Entertainment).

    Then again, it may have been Bull Nakano. 😕

    It was Nakano, Aja only had a few matches before being sent back to Japan by WWF officials. I find it funny that Aja was released as she was, by far, one of the most athletic of any of the women wrestlers at the time, and certainly the most athletic of the “big” women. She had legitimate talent, and was easily one of the better ladies I had ever seen in the squared circle. Then again, athletic ability was never very high on the WWF’s priority list when recruiting competitors for the women’s division.

    ADD: Looking back over it I see a discrepancy. Aja Kong was listed in the commentary, but it was Amazing Kong listed in the official results. These are two different women. ❗ However, Amazing Kong as an equally athletic woman as Aja, and is a darn fine wrestler. Regardless, her victory does not surprise me.
