So for most people Wrestlemania was the very end of march. Great storylines, over the top theatrics, Guest stars and Celebrities. But i dont watch WWE programming and fit the last few years i have fully immersed myself in the world of Joshi wrestling so when All Star Grand Queendom was announced i doesn't months counting down the days until April 23rd rolls around for the biggest show of Stardoms history, their wrestlemania.
The show spanned 5 hours 35 mins with a Grand entrances, hype packages, a multi women rumble and strikes so stiff you'd think every now was a knockout. It was glorious. Some matches didn't live up to the hype and some matches exceeded expectations. I'm here today to rank all the matches from the event from best to worse. Let's go.
Syuri vs. Chihiro Hashimoto (A)
This match was incredible. The Clash of styles, the size difference and the explosiveness in this Stardom/Sendai Girls battle far surpassed how good I thought it would be in my opinion best of the night.
World of Stardom Championship: Giulia vs. Tam Nakano (A-)
Possibly the biggest feud this company has created which really helped sell this match. It was stuff as fuck, scary at times but damn what a match. My only gripe with it is that it seemed rather one dudes most of the match so as hard hitting as it was it got stale at times, but when it got good it was GOOD.
Himeka vs. Maika (A-)
A great send off match for Himeka. Great choice of opponent for her too. Both women gave their best just eating strikes, drivers and slams. The way Himeka knew it was the end and just kinda let Maika have the moment of glory with retiring her friend.
Wonder of Stardom Championship: Saya Kamitani vs. Mina Shirakawa (B+)
A beautiful match between these two competitors which had everything: Storyline, scary bumps, high flying and great selling. I'm a big Kamitani fan but I'm so happy to see Mina Shirakawa have a moment like this.
IWGP Women’s Championship: Mercedes Mone vs. Mayu Iwatani (B-)
Probably the match I was excited for but unfortunately it didn't live up to the hype. Mercedes held her own but vi was turned off the whole thing from Mercedes' cringey trash talk. Mayu Iwatani did what she does best and that is show out. I'm happy she can represent NJPW now
Starlight Kid & Mei Seira vs. AZM & Mei Suruga (B-)
This was a well done and very fun match. AZM and Mei Suruga make a great team. This match was fast paced, brawling all over the place and dives galore. At times iv wish they'd tone down on the posing and focus on getting more offense but overall very enjoyable great match to put at the start the main card.
Artist of Stardom Championship: Risa Sera, Suzu Suzuki & Kurumi Hiragi vs. KAIRI, Natsupoi & Saori Anou (C+)
Not usual a fan of multiple person Tag matches but this has a lot of redeeming qualities. Great double team moves and both teams filled with very capable competitors. Not as good as some of the other matches but way better than what I thought it was going to be. Plus the quick mid ring sliced bread was a nice touch.
Goddesses of Stardom Championship: Yuu & Nanae Takahashi © vs. MIRAI & Ami Sohrei (C)
I am not a fan of Yuu and Nanae So I wasn't really invested from the moment this match was announced. I am however a fan of Mirai So I was rather excited whenever she got tagged in.
Thekla, Mariah May, Xena & Jessie vs. Natsuko Tora, Momo Watanabe, Saki Kashima & Ruaka (C)
This match was nothing special. I expected a lot more out of it because I like almost everyone in this match but it was very uneventful. Thekla Teaming with club Venus could be something cool for the future. But it doesn't look like that's where they are going with all of this.
The Rumble (C)
Normally on big shows like this they start off with a rumble in order to get everybody on the show this kind of felt like that but the entire match. Was very fun with some very cool moments thrown in there. Whether it was a ploy to get more names on the show or it has a bigger meaning In the grand scheme of things I enjoyed it for what it was.
Hazuki & Fuwa-chan vs. Miyu Amasaki & Utami Hayashishita (D)
This was Fuwachans Second match ever which confuses me as to why it was on a show of this calibre. I would have just given the matches to people. You know will hold down the Fort with some great matches and leave the lesser experienced people for a smaller show. The two veterans in this match really had to work done magic to salvage this slow choppy match. Hazuki really saved it.
