Ito Kaoru vs Bambi

Venue: Shinjuku Face
Promotion: Ibuki

Background: Ibuki is a promotion organized by Yoshida Mariko, the former Queen of Arsion. The promotion's sole aim is to provide challenging opportunities to young wrestlers (irrespestive of their promotion affiliations), something that any other promotion today fails to provide. Currently (as of 2007), Ibuki is the best promotion in Japan (it went to Paris in July of 2007). In this match, Bambi, one of the newcomers in joshi puroresu, challenges Ito Kaoru, the former WWWA Single Champion. Everybody knows Bambi won't win. But to what extent Bambi can do well is what this match is all about. This way, young wrestlers will grow to become tomorrow's best wrestlers in joshi puroresu.

Ito's finishing move: Jumping Foot Stomp. Although many other wrestlers use this move, Ito is the master of it. The fact that Bambi didn't lose until this finishing move tells us that Bambi did quite well in this match.
