(reviewed 12/15/2017) Slugfest main event for OZ Academy’s top title on their big show. These women are two of the biggest joshi wrestlers today and aren’t afraid to get physical so there’s plenty of mean strikes and hard bumping in this one. Some might describe it as aimless and it’s certainly overlong but I’m willing to overlook that a little with the tradition of joshi bombfests and this is one of my favorites in a while.
