If you’ve not seen Kana in the last six months, she’s evolved her look, adding more elaborate entrance robes and jackets as well as employing an array of different facepaints. It’s really separated her from the pack, and created a lot more buzz for her during her JWP Openweight Championship reign.
She was already painting her face when she won the title from Arisa Nakajima in August, antagonising the roster by rubbing her victory in their faces. Eventually, Nakajima regained the title on December 15 – but before that, Kana notched up a couple of successful defences. The first win was over Manami Katsu on September 16, and the other was the match we have for you today. Kana put the belt on the line against Hanako Nakamori on October 14 at the Tsubasa Kuragaki 15th Anniversary show in Shinjuku FACE in Tokyo, Japan – click the jump to watch the match, and the post-fight antics.
