Elite bros, we got her!https://www.postwrestling.com/2022/01/13/former-ice-ribbon-talent-maya-yukihi-would-like-to-appear-for-aew/
>>4112968Yay! More Japanese cosplayers getting more time for Kenny’s fetish than signing actual American talent that are more deserving
HOLY SHIEEEEEEEEEEEET CHING CONG DING DONG IS ALL ELITE
Maya Yukihi (30something)
>>4112968Yukihi Maya (36)
>>4112984This one is actually good
itoh bros... shes going for our spot
>indy shitter with no money or prospects wants to get paidno shit
>highly educated>good English speaker>hot>top tier workerTK wouldn't know how to book this remarkable player to maximize her talents. Show me 1 (ONE) joshi TK has booked well. And no Shida was not booked well. She was champion for a long time but she still wasn't the face of the division, Baker was pushed the entire time, even as injured.If there's one thing Tony sucks at worse than booking some, it's Booker Jap women.
>>4113058shida improved on her english. she went from having subtitles for her video packages to none. shes also dont a lot more of them lately. i wont judge her title reign given that at the time, the aew womens division was seriously lacking. currently she was in the 2nd or 3rd biggest womens feud. id say the fact that shes over is enough proof that shes been booked well. same with riho to some extent. riho however doesnt know or want to learn english so its her fault for not getting promo time.
>>4113035She embarrassed herself last time, she's never coming back.
>>4113098Stop making excuses, she was in the fucking crowd as champion, there is no excuse for that BS
>>4113182I hope she gets another title run (world or TBS). She caries them through shitty booking through the pandemic.
>>4112968We just keep winning
>>4113182ok but that was before. shes been put into a big feud with serena and its still not over. im guessing the blow off match whenever shida comes back wont be a regular match too.
>>4113182Stop living in the past, hombre.Riho has a great feud with Britt Baker than did very well in the ratings and Shida is involved in a high profile feud with Deeb that gets a lot of critical acclaim.
>>4112968would unironically be a great get, but Tony wouldn't book her well
>>4113240remember there was talk about a joshi faction or even just a womens faction? well she can fit right in for either one since shes a good wrestler, pretty, and knows english.
FUCK OFF GOOKS ONLY PAWGS IN ALL ELITE WHITES
If she's signing with anyone it's with Cyberfight/DDT not with All Britt Baker
>>4113148She embarrassed AEW by actually having some CHARISMA
>we wanted saori>we got her jannetty instead
>>4113325She's going to be great in Stardom, but I wonder which faction she'll be in...
>Maya Yukihi, who is currently a freelancer on the former Ice Ribbon, is planning to advance to North America and is planning to participate in AEW. Currently, Maya Yukihi has decided to play a single match with Saki Akai at the DDT Ryogoku Tournament.
>>4112968Based, I cant wait to see what NONDESCRIPT JAPANESE ANIME GIRL#3485 will bring to the table
>>4112968lmao can't wait to see her job weekly to Emi Sakura on DARK
>>4113240If she can talk shit like baker, she'll be fine
>>4112984what american talent are more deserving
A very inspiring player to say the least.
have kenny and her met before? i noticed they follow each other.
>>4112968tony scrapping for new debuts
>>4113431They can finally have that heel joshi aew has been lacking.
>regular DARK jobber>once in a blue moon appearance on TV to job to Botch BakerYAPPARI!! I can't wait for these inspiring games!!
>>4113465its funny how emi thought she would lead her own joshi faction. now shida on the other hand can.
>>4113465They should have turned Riho when she was being a cunt to Yuka on one of those first shows
>>4113436She has worked with Ozaki for ages, so she's probably close to Shida aka probably knows Ken as well.
>>4113502well if shida likes her then kenny will bring her in. i noticed makoto wasnt in the aew womens tournament last year and i thought she was friends with shida.
>>4113325Don't say such things
I'd assume all Ice Ribbon talent would be grateful to wrestle in front of 40 people at a flea market at this point.
>>4113479Emi learned by now that she was brought in to be a trainer.
>>4113669AEW will be a home away from home for her
>>4113697i dont think emi even trains peope. i havent heard anybody say she helps out. she wouldve also mentioned it during her meltdown on twitter some days ago.
>>4113270Money isn't in a Joshi faction, it's in Joshi Vs Joshi where they stiff the shit out of each other and have good matches. Just get JR to fuck off and put Taz on commentary for them. He's good at getting over the idea that wrestlers are working extra stiff without fully breaking kayfabe.
>>4113771>she wouldve also mentioned it during her meltdown on twitter some days agoshe had a meltdown? what did she say?
>>4113771The problem is all the wh*te shitters apparently just show up once a week for filming the show then fuck off home. So they have 1 training session with Dustin Rhodes per week before the show and that's it. Emi (or someone) should grab a bunch of the girls and do a training camp with them that goes for long hours every day. You'd probably see a big improvement.
>>4113889Not true. They train on tuesdays and hours before Dynamite.
>>4113889it wouldn't happen because I don't think they have anyone that dedicated, but a women's dojo would help them out a bunch
>>4113779>Money isn't in a Joshi factionWRONG
>>4113956>No! They sometimes practice on Tuesday too!How about they practice every day.
I only like chubby and BBWS....who's the Joshi wrestler for me?
>>4113431>>4113325Who's the third player in their group?
>>4112968lmao imagine if Tony used her to replace Shida in the Deeb feud like she’s Aunt Viv
>>4114764i imagine tony just calls every asian woman backstage "shida"
>>4113325Kenny should make a deal with Oz instead of Emi's dungeon.
>>4114764>like she’s Aunt Vivkek
>>4114819jr was about to call riho, shida at botb. he went like shhhriho
>>4113465Ozaki-gun would fit that well although I don't know how Emi would take another joshi grandma at the AEW buffet
>>4113315>joins tjpw>knees miyu's face in first night for the belt
>>4113315Joshi are interested in AEW because they don't have to sign. All signing really does is help convince Tony to put you higher on the card like Shida and Riho right now.
>>4115307Emi needs to get a clue and just stiff the shit out of the jobbers if she wants to get over. Trying to carry and sell for them + doing comedy spots isn't getting over.
>>4115265AEW booking would support Seikigun's constant run-ins.
>>4115390put the grannys on dark. put the other two on rampage.
>>4115390Who's the biggest women's babyface they have? Because you'd get them significantly more over if you put them in the role of Saori in that match she had with Ozaki a few years back.
>>4114401i have no idea who the one next to mayu is but this group had 3 of the best womens wrestlers in the world
>>4115390>Interference in OzKek imagine JR flipping out from POLICE casually beating women with a nightstick in front of the Ref.
No NXT no Stardom no care
>>4115474>ref bump>entirety of Seikigun runs in and beats the shit out of julia hart with nightsticks, chairs, whips and chains for 2 minutesthat'd be some heat right there
>>4113325Give it to me straight, bros. Is there any chance Saori shows up in AEW?
>>4112968Annnd dropped. AEW is garbage.
>>4115531It's happening, just gotta wait for covid restrictions to ease up a little
>>4115531no. kenny follows maya on twitter. kenny does not follow saori on twitter.
>>4113032You say that about every one.
>>4115474FOLKS SOMEBODY HAS GOT TO DO SOMETHING ABOUT THIS DAMN PO-LICE! WHERE IS THE OFFICIAL?
Don't know much about her but she doesn't seem to have the same negatives a lot of the joshi talent has. Isn't too small (Riho, Mei, Yuka), isn't unattractive (Ryo, Emi), and can actually speak decent English (not as good as Shida tbf).
>>4116056Doesn't have a divisive gimmick either (Maki)
>>4116056wouldnt be surprised if kenny calls her up for the owen cup tournament. i think theyre having 16 people for each one
>>4115390would be the most dimes group in america in years
>I would like to be in a glamorous organization, because AEW has a lot of Japanese fighters and I have the impression that many people go there for spots. AEW is amazing, isn’t it? How they just appeared out of nowhere and became a huge organization?you think every wrestler in the world is aware of AEW's existence?
>Yukihi is also multilingual, who can speak English, Korean, and Spanish along with Japanese.Fuck, she's zainichi. Dropped!
>>4114416For you, it's Yuu
>>4113058Shida is one dimensional. Everyone who has ever mattered in wrestling got over because they can talk more than anything else. All she can do is wrestle decent matches. She doesn't do high spots, doesn't do promos, her matches aren't memorable at all. She's not a bad wrestler but she's the literal definition of 'good hand'. And even with this in mind, she was booked as a dominant face champ for a long ass time. If anything, she was booked a lot better than she should have been, at least if the division had other competent wrestlers who could promo. She benefitted from the relative lack of talent surrounding her, along with whatever her deal with Kenny is, as much as from her own abilities. Britt was pushed because she can talk which is a skill practically nonexistent in that division. She's nowhere near the wrestler that Shida is and probably never will be but she's infinitely more entertaining. A white meat babyface is a hard sell in 2022, and one who doesn't really talk and when she does sounds like she's reading off cue cards and poorly. Simps will seethe and cope but it's 100% true. I have no reason to praise or shit on Shida. This is just how it is.
>>4114735Yumi Ohka if you don't count Big Boss Ozaki
>>4116152That's a big girl. Is she able to wear her belt?
>>4112968Oh shit, another 90 lbs gook who cant do an english promo. Kenny must be in heaven
>>4116146No she's pure Japanese. She went to a fancy international university in Japan for accounting and learned multiple languages. Her father had his sights on an International Banker gimmick for her career..
>>4113325>>we wanted saori>>we got her jannetty insteadYukihi has worked way more great matches than Anou. Anou is hot as fuck but she's also a bit of a 3 star general, to be honest.
>>4116267I like Maya but I've seen more memorable Saori matches than her
>>4116237why did she became a wrestler though even with her credentials
>>4116341Have you seen her ICExInfinity title matches? She manages to drag Giulia and Hamuko to good matches when they were the absolute shits. And there's easily 3 other matches in those reigns that are better than anything Saori has done.
>>4116140AEW is the second biggest after WWE and Tony's shown an openly friendly attitude to various Japanese promotions plus AEW had a joshi side women's tournament that featured girls from various promotions. I think most are more than aware of AEW, especially since it means they might have a chance to get some western shows under their belt without having to sign something like WWE.
>>4116355She was on "golden daughter" path since birth.She finally got her career through the strict Japanese system of schooling and bullshit in banking and hated it.Friend took her to a wrestling show after work and she saw a woman's match so scoped out wrestling schools for women and landed with Ice Ribbon because it was in Yokohama and had cred.She became addicted to it. The same drive that had her obtain her father's dream kicked in. She was taking the train 1 hour every day to do the wrestling circle training.She cried when she told her mom she wanted to quit her shoot job and spend all her savings to become a pro wrestler, mostly because she was afraid of her father's disappointment.Mother said "fuck that guy, you did everything he asked and accomplished it - now do this for yourself."simple asIt's in Japanese but here she explains it - https://youtu.be/6kucIbeCoSc
>>4116663>choosing wrestling over an actual career that earns you way more moneywhat an idiot
>>4116690successfully avoiding a life of wagecucking sounds pretty smart to me
>>4116690except she is making good money, doing what she loves and runs her own life. No 9-5 shit job.Probably good at investing/saving from her schooling.Math is math, she can go back to accounting whenever.
>>4116663Are those her family's servants?
>>4116663Thanks for the info.>>4116690My headcanon is that joshi usually retire to office work / teaching / etc because of bullying at their workplace. Knowing that japan does not promote girls and the bullying office culture and overtime probably is the reason
>>4116690a Britt Baker vs Maya Yukihi feud is borndentist vs banker
>>4116690Do you know how bad the work-life balance in Japan is? She made the right choice, she doesn't want to work herself to exhaustion and work her entire living life at a bank like her father
Would Cocaine Tony see the value though
>>4116723its from the video. https://youtu.be/6kucIbeCoScHer dad said she should learn to golf because that is what bankers play, so she learned golf and that is her playing in a tournament overseas.
>>4112968Sorry but Dave doesn't know her.
>>4113148>fans want her back in spite of Booker of the Year's shitty usage of herJust because Dave doesn't like her doesn't mean she embarassed herself. He also doesn't like Yuka or Riho and is constantly baffled why Yuka is so over despite her infrequent appearances.
>>4116766Tony doesn't really care about the women's division that much jacking it to pawgs and keeping Britt happy so if Kenny said he likes her Tony wouldn't care
>>4116735Nao Kakuta was a pre-school teacher and quit after a few months due to bullying, eventually getting into acting and then wrestling.
>>4116815thats where you are wrong. tony decides who gets screen time. emi has been there since august? and still hasnt been on dynamite or rampage.
Based Oz Academy champ!
>>4118614Bro I just watched her on DDT and I'm in love
>>4116890Lmao joshits are lame. You get jobbed out by preschool kids and sexpest promoters and then you have to retire when the coomer mark you decided to marry makes you retire.
>>4112968Very interesting indeed
>>4112968dropped fucking traitor
>>4118632nah u are lame
>>4118632It was her coworkers, not the kids.
>>4112968She could be huge in the Wesr
>>4115390Seikigun is too based for american soisImagine the seethe from based POLICE giving out shining wizards and beating bitches left and right, not to mention Seikigun's constant run-ins
>>4121462They would be mega over. The seethe marks have over their antics is them being worked but they’re too smarked to know it.Ozaki is a genius
>>4116663>She cried when she told her mom she wanted to quit her shoot job and spend all her savings to become a pro wrestlerNot sure I buy this as wrestling wouldn't attract the poor people it does if it cost too much to engage in. What she probs means is spend all my disposable income'.
>>4121818Her mom cried because she basically admitted to being a dyke slut.
>>4121818she quit her job and moved into a cheap apartment near the dojo to train every day.but yeah she's from money family so in the back of her mind there was always a safety net plus she could always go back to banking
>>4121837she's a party girl she's bi
>>4116579One of the bucks said they wanted aew to become a nexus for pro wrestling, where wrestlers from around the world can come in
>>4116913Emi just doesn't have that audience investment that shida and riho have. Yuka as well
>>4116663>mostly because she was afraid of her father's disappointment.lmao at japanese fathers trying to be hardasses to their daughters while getting cucked by their work, society and wives.
>>4121868I wanna party with Maya
>>4116056>negativeshave sex, they don't have any negatives, americans are just bloody stupid
>>4122051And with Shida and Riho it's still a lowbar
kenny will make the call
>>4122051If it was about audience investment, we'd never see Ford, Bunny or Red Velvet on TV.
>>4124231And Tony will block her number.
>pretty high reply count for seemingly irrelevant news>either somebody got KWAB'd or Cryanfag is at it again>it's a thinly veiled Joshit threadLiterally even fucking worse
>>4124247sounds like its about coom investment then lel
>>4124291Kek what a fired bitch
>>4124270the evps have re-signed except kenny whose contract expires later this month. he will make sure that he can bring all the joshi he wants when he signs the new contract.
>>4124270why does tony have such shit taste in women's wrestlers?
>>4125621Tony might be a coked out dork but at least he's not a yellow fever nonce.
>>4116913Emi banked too hard on thinking Killer Queens would catch on. Other than some coomers for Mei though it didn't go far.
>>4125924It made lulu and mei. Emi was in the background
>>4123693Shida and Riho have been on AEW tv the past few months. Riho main evented the first battle of the belts.>>41242472/3 of those are heels. AEW kinda has a short list of heels. But Deeb and Hirsch can remedy that along with Kayla Rossi.
>>4125924lulu got over. there were multiple signs for lulu
>>4116913Emi is there to be a trainer and have matches with younger talent. It isn't hard to understand.
>>4112968Where do they tie the ice ribbon ? In their ass ?
>>4122578>lmao at japanese fathers trying to be hardasses to their daughters while getting cucked by their work, society and wives.well that's the relationship between the two things, isn't it? They want to control something because they feel so powerless in every other situation.
>>4126199>Emi is there to be a trainerthats headcanon. there isnt a single person in aew that has mentioned emi being a trainer
>>4115464just an actress/former cheerleader
>>4126248Let's be honest, even if she makes it big in AEW, Maya will retire within 5-10 years. Her father might be a hardass but the skills she acquired because of him will serve her well for the rest of her life
>>4116663unironically just like my animes
>>4125924it never really got a chance to go far tbf. they never once appeared on dynamite, even though they were one of the best things going on dark and dark: elevation
>>4126272She's regularly having matches with Sky Blue. Are you blind?
>>4126375find me a source that says emi is training them. if not then shut your mouth. dustin and serena are always brought up by wrestlers as coaching the women. also kenny but never emi.
>>4112984>than signing actual American talent that are more deservingSuch as?
She's almost certainly signing with DDT soon so she'll probably go on an excursion via them
>>4126083What does that have to do with audience investment?
>>4126434>She's almost certainly signing with DDTcope
>>4126434what the fuck would she even do in DDT. She's already had 2 matches with Saki Akai, and they'd book her even if she was a freelancer.
>>4126501CyberFight said they were interested in signing her and they're giving her a singles match at their Ryogoku show, seems pretty likely>>4126525I don't know but Takagi said he wanted more joshi in DDT and she's always been a fan of it
>>4126420not the anon you're responding too but Emi is probably more an agent then a trainer.laying out the matches giving tips etc
>>4126525CyberFight's been wanting to double down on joshi and Takagi did hint at being interested in having a more serious joshi promotion to be more like NOAH while TJPW stays silly like DDT
>>4124291>open thread about joshi wrestler>the posts are about joshi wrestlerimagine moi shawck
>>4126732>Emi is probably more an agent then a trainer.>laying out the matches giving tips etcgive me a source. if not then shut your mouth.
>>4126739That seems kind of stupid. wrestling can be both serious and funny. Maki Itoh can be a clown and fuck around in the midcard some shows, and she can also wrestle a serious match with Miyu in main event and cry afterward. Why split your own audience across two joshi promotions.
>>4126888Dave mentioned it on the last WOR around the 45 minute mark.
>>4126888The source is she had been hired full time by AEW.She's never been a draw so she is serving some purpose, unless Shida is just trying to get her a nice paycheck for doing nothing.If you're a women wrestler in 2022 and don't know about Ice Ribbon or Gatoh Move you're some plastic thot with bolt ons hoping WWE lives in the past. Emi Sakura kept a guerilla army alive in the mountains during pro wrestlings dark age
>>4127004because it's all under the Wrestle Universe umbrella anyways.
>>4126464Typically you want heels vs faces. Bunny and ford have been a heel team for months. Emi's whole thing was killer queens but her stable mates left.
>>4128626based Ozaki i want to rest my elbow on Maya's boob..
>>4127004DDT and NOAH have extremely different audiences despite being under one company. I guess they're thinking the same thing could happen with joshi.
Post some more Saori and Maya!!!!
>>4124291>NOOOOO WHY ARE ANONS TALKING ABOUT JOSHI INSTEAD OF CONSOLE WARRING OR SPAMMING FORCED MEMESShower.Weights.Clue.
>>4130403>HAPPYOONEWwhat did she mean by this?
