Dream Slam Monthly Vol. 4: Graduation Season

Maika and Himeka leave together at STARDOM All-Star Grand Queendom after Himeka's Retirement Match

So Hard to Say Good-Bye

Where has the time gone? It felt like only a few days ago, Himeka announced her intention to retire. In the last week, the Jumbo Princess concluded her Retirement Road with her special singles match against Maika at STARDOM’s All-Star Grand Queendom on Sunday and her epilogue with WAVE Pro x BushiFight: JUMBO FOREVER took place at Shinjuku FACE. Throughout her retirement road, Himeka was collected, resolved, and content with her decision to retire on her own terms. However, last night the finality of her decision finally seemed to hit her at the conclusion of the show. 

Since her arrival in STARDOM, Himeka was an instant favorite. While she never won any singles titles or tournaments in STARDOM, she was consistently someone the company could depend on for exciting, hard-hitting matches. I was very thankful that I had the opportunity to see her wrestle live back in November on back-to-back nights. Her retirement ceremony will be in two weeks at Korakuen Hall: Last Jumbo Princess (5/14). No matches have been announced yet, but STARDOM’s next big show is Fukuoka Goddess Legend on 5/4.

Third Annual Hana Kimura Memorial Show: PINX! (5/23) Korakuen Hall

How has it been three years already? Each spring the flowers come into bloom, but with one exception, reminding me how quickly things change and how fragile life is. While Hana is no longer with us, her family and friends celebrate her life and memory again this year. On April 16, Kyoko Kimura announced the card for PINX.

Monthly Match Recommendation

As part of her Retirement Road, Himeka requested a special tag match with her former ActWres Girl’Z friends, Miyuki Takase, Kakeru Sekiguchi and Natsupoi (then Natsumi Maki). STARDOM honored her wish and brought in freelancers Takase and Sekiguchi for their April 2nd Korakuen Show. As someone completely unfamiliar with AWG or the pre-STARDOM history of many of the wrestlers, I was very curious to see if I could find a match that would have prompted this request by The Jumbo Princess. AWG decided to make my life a little easier by releasing the following match in its entirety. 


It’s outstanding to see how much everyone has grown since their time in AWG, but the only problem is … now I want to watch MORE AWG!

  • Promotion: ActWres Girl’Z
  • Event: AgZ Actwres girl’Z In Korakuen
  • Tag Match: Miyuki Takase & Himeka Arita vs. Kakeru Sekiguchi & Natsumi Maki (now: Natsupoi) (result)
  • Date/Location: Korakuen Hall (11/15/2018)


I simply could not resist this comedic birthday match fearing Kyusei Sakura Hirota. She’s known for cosplaying as other wrestlers including Hana Kimura, Himeka, and Konosuke Takeshita. COLOR’S Hikari Shimizu gives the Queen of Comedic Cosplay a run for her money with her own DIY costume and character impersonation. Hirota takes heavy doses of her own medicine, but also playfully coached Shimizu on how to do a better impersonation. 

 If you need a pick-me-up, might I suggest this one!

  • Promotion: WAVE Pro-Wrestling
  • Event: WAVE Happy Birthday Wave ~ Cherry Blossoms Blooming~
  • Special Singles Match: Kyusei Sakura Hirota vs. Hikari Shimizu (result)
  • Date/Location: ShinKiba 1st Ring (4/8/2023)

Thanks for catching up with me this month! See you at the end of May with another monster monthly wrap-up!!
