Pro Wrestling: EVE has announced an independent Women’s wrestling dream match for their upcoming event ‘Global Women Strike’ which takes place September 27th from the Resistance Gallery in Bethnal Green, London.
Former PROGRESS Women’s Champion and Superstar in the NXT UK Women’s Division Toni Storm will be facing Japanese wrestling legend Meiko Satomura. Toni Storm of course took part in the inaugural Mae Young Classic tournament for WWE and the belief is that Satomura will be part of the second annual iteration of the event.
In 2005, Satomura co-founded the all-woman promotion, Sendai Girls. She also worked with WCW in the mid-90s on their short-lived women’s division which was to feature the likes of Bull Nakano and Madusa.
She helped create Sendai Girls after a previous female promotion, Gaea Japan, went out of business. Satomura wrestled in the final match ever held by the promotion before founding a new company the next year. She is the current Fight Club Pro champion. Satomura is also the last person to win the Joshi Puroresu Grand Prize award before Io Shirai began her sweep of the award. Satomura was given the award in 2013 and Shirai has swept every year since. That will change in 2018, however, as Shirai has spent the year with NXT.
