I just don't see Goldberg losing before he gets to Austin. But if he has to then I would say Eddie is about the only person that can unseat him. This all of course can only happen if Austin doesn't get involved until then! As much as I would LOVE a Sting nostalgia run right now. I think the games time decline has robbed him of that opportunity!

Default October 5th, 2003: Grand Prix



October 5th, 2003

From Jingu Stadium in Tokyo, Japan

Attendance: 48,000

Announce Team: Joey Styles, Tracy Brooks and Bret "The Hitman" Hart

Momoe Nakanishi vs. Takako Inoue

One of the matches with virtually no build opened the show. We couldn't even bring them face to face on the go home show since Momoe was still recovering from the stinger she suffered in her last Grand Prix tournament match, but I was confident that the skill of both women would allow this to be a quality show opener. It was that, and then some. Takako was good, and Momoe was a bit better. Together, they produced a very entertaining match that got the fans involved right away.

Takako didn't work over the neck much, as we thought it'd be better to leave that alone just as a precaution. Instead she tried to keep her down and wear her out with mat wrestling, but Momoe eventually fought back to her feet and got the pin with her Momo*Latch.

Our Generation vs. Lisa Moretti and Shinobu Kandori

We just had the women focus on telling a basic story in this match, mainly because the quality of the work was inevitably going to get dragged down by Lisa Moretti. The former Ivory, or Tina Ferrari if you prefer, just isn't good enough to perform up to the standards that the rest of the Renaissance women can, and that was evident again tonight. Melissa was pretty good, Nattie was okay, and 38-year old Shinobu kept up admirably and was at least near their level, but Lisa just looked out of place.

The heels did some basic work, but the idea we were stressing here is that Our Generation have great natural chemistry as a team, and they will become even more formidable as they continue to work together and build experience. They got the advantage with some solid double team work, and Melissa got the pin on Moretti with a bridging German suplex.

For a little break in between matches, we cut to a backstage promo from Manami Toyota. She talked about her long history with Toshiyo Yamada, as partners, friends and even opponents. She referenced a classic hair vs. hair match they had in August 1992 (a match Dave Meltzer has called the best match he's ever seen live. Say what you want about Dave, but that does cover a lot of ground.) She'd won that match, but out of sympathy for her partner and friend, she did not want to see Toshiyo get her head shaved and had to be held back by several other wrestlers. Even though she'd taken Yamada's hair that night, she'd felt bad about it. Tonight she was going to take whatever was left of Toshiyo's pride, and she wouldn't feel bad about it at all.

I thought the content was strong. Manami looked good here, those who understand Japanese assured me there was nothing wrong with her delivery, and the angle undeniably got the crowd hotter. All that's great, but the problem is that the angle was nowhere near the high standards this storyline has been reaching, so I was worried the feud might not be quite as hot by the time the bell rang.

Meiko Satomura and Chigusa Nagayo vs. Daffney and LuFisto

This was a natural match to make, building off of Daffney and her poison mist stopping Meiko from making it to the Grand Prix finals. It was also an easy way to work Chigusa, one of our best, into the show after I made the decision to have Etsuko Mita win the B Block (which really could have gone either way.) The easy story to tell was Satomura trying to get her revenge on Daffney, but being frustrated in her efforts. Every time it looked like she was really going to make Daffney pay, LuFisto would be there with a tag or simply an illegal attack to bail her partner out. Old-school tag team wrestling, but effective.

Chigusa was awesome here, once again reminding us all that while she might be one of the oldest members of Renaissance, she was also still one of the very best in the world. Meiko was very good too, showing good babyface fire in her attempts to get at Daffney. As for the heels? They aren't at the level of their babyface opponents in the ring, at least not yet, but I thought they played their parts and held up their end of the match okay. This was only the third match on the show, and already the second one that exceeded my expectations. In the end, Daffney got her comeuppance thanks to Meiko's Scorpio Rising kick.

Alexis Laree and Allison Corino vs. Aja Kong and Devil Masami {©}

This was a huge match for Alexis and Allison. Both had been in PPV matches before, but this was definitely a higher profile, being in there with the champions. Fortunately they were wrestling Kong and Masami, two of the top heels in the company who also happen to work great together as a team. Their styles mesh really well together and bring out the best in each other as a pair of badass heels out to destroy all opposition. They were both awesome tonight, turning in fantastic performances and generating all kinds of sympathy for the North American faces. Alexis did a good job at playing the face in peril, but the hot tag to Allison didn't have quite as much heat as you'd like. Allison was the weakest performer in the match by a good amount, but it's not like she was terrible. It's more just that she was merely decent while her partner was really good, and the heels were fantastic.

And boy, were the heels fantastic! This match was better than their tournament final against Chigusa and Meiko (which was MOTN of the last Renaissance PPV), and even better than Devil's main event title match with Manami Toyota on the first Renaissance PPV in January. The crowd was hot, cheering the faces on and hoping the smaller underdogs could pull off the upset against their fearsome veteran opponents. The crowd counted along when Alexis pulled off the same flying sunset flip she'd used to pin Kong on Renaissance, but this time Kong kicked out. Their was a big roar when Alexis connected with a tornado DDT, and the fans watched intently as the referee counted once...




twice...









...but Devil made the save!

That wound up being as close as the challengers would come. The heels soon regained control, and ultimately Masami put Corino to sleep.

Grand Prix Finals:
Akira Hokuto vs. Etsuko Mita


Before the match, we aired a video recapping the progression of the Grand Prix tournament, with special attention paid to the roads Hokuto and Mita took to win their respective blocks. I thought the package was edited well and hopefully helped the match come across as a big deal.


Grade: 87


This was a rare heel-heel matchup. I decided to break from tradition for several reasons. For one, they're two of our top women, and neither one will be turning anytime soon, so it was a unique match and doing it in the tournament was a natural way to do it. It was also a chance to subvert fan expectations for a face/heel final match, which is doubly useful since we've got the Stu Hart Classic going on at the same time. And since this wasn't the main event, we could afford to take the hit for not having a traditional babyface vs. heel match.

Even though I knew the all-heel setup would hurt it somewhat, I still thought this could be a really strong match just based on how good both women are. I let them call it in the ring and read the crowd to decide who should get the heat and how the match should proceed, and both women handled it well. The crowd seemed to be behind Hokuto moreso than Mita, so they adjusted accordingly and Mita slid into the role of villain on the fly. Maybe it's because she was in her comfort zone as a heel while Hokuto was adapting into a more sympathetic role, but Mita was ever so slightly the better performer here. It was only a narrow difference though, because both were great. This was an excellent match, and it left me wondering just what these two might have been able to pull off if one was an established babyface.

Both women had come to the ring alone, but as Hokuto began making her comeback...









Kaoru Ito came down the ramp to try and fulfill her role as Etsuko Mita's "muscle." She didn't interfere right away, because referee Charles Robinson was alert and she didn't want to risk a disqualification, but it was clear that she was biding her time and waiting for an opening. Mita created that opening by getting into an argument with Robinson, positioning them so his back was to Ito and Hokuto...









But Daffney came running down the ramp, and she hit Ito with the poison mist before she could interfere! That made it all about Hokuto vs. Mita to decide who would win the Grand Prix, and the two world-class competitors entered the home stretch, pulling off big moves and false finishes, at the end of which Hokuto slipped out of a Death Valley Driver and hit the Northern Lights Bomb to come out the victor.


Grade: 88


I came into the ring after the match and presented the trophy to Hokuto. The color commentary suffered without me there to limit Tracy's involvement, but that didn't hold Akira back. I didn't need to understand what she was saying to know it was working; the huge crowd reaction spoke volumes in any language. She spoke about darkness reigning in the Grand Prix, and said that very soon, that same darkness would spread to whomever was the world champion after tonight.

Toshiyo Yamada vs. Manami Toyota {©}

Just like the previous match, we let these women call the shots in their own match. Manami normally has that freedom in her major matches anyway, and there was even less concern here with how often these two have worked together as both partners and opponents over the years. This was undoubtedly the biggest match Yamada has had in WCW, and she knew it. I thought she responded to the pressure of the moment well, because she did a good job here as a vicious heel, throwing kicks and beating on Manami with a much nastier edge than she'd ever shown as a face. The kicks and blows to the face really got the fans into the match, cheering for Manami to recover and fight back against her former friend. As for Toyota, she was her usual great self. She sold the beating well, fought back with fire and entertained the fans with her great, smooth athletic offense.

These two went out there and delivered an absolutely fantastic match; the best in Renaissance history, and likely the best women's match anywhere in the world since the glory days of All Japan Women's sometime in the 1990s. This could have main evented one of our men's PPV's without any issues. After a night filled with several matches that overachieved based on my expectations, this was the strongest yet, capping off an excellent night for the women. When I started the Renaissance brand last year, my hope was to one day be able to put on women's shows as good as this one. I feel like this was a real landmark moment in time for women's wrestling, and this match put the exclamation point on it all.

Yamada came across as a really vicious heel here, who was out to not only beat her former friend and take her title, but physically destroy her and leave her on the mat in a broken heap. We pushed her jealousy on commentary, but Tracy's attempt at adding in fell flat when she said these two had never been opponents until recently (untrue, and contradicted by Manami's promo earlier in the night.) The fans clapped along and roared every time Toyota kicked out of a pin attempt or escaped a submission, and you could hear the women and young girls in the crowd screaming when she started making a big comeback. She hit some arm drags and dropkicks, and then a bridging butterfly suplex for a near-fall, but when she went for a missile dropkick, Yamada met her with a hard kick to the ribs on her way down! A huge roundhouse to the side of the head followed, and Yamada made the cover, hooked the leg, and we got a one...




two...







...but Toyota got a shoulder up!

Yamada grunted in frustration and aimed another kick at Toyota's face as she got to her knees, but Manami caught the kick and snapped off a dragon screw legwhip. From there she gracefully went to the top rope and executed a moonsault for a near-fall. Not allowing herself to be frustrated, she pressed her advantage by scooping Yamada off the mat, lifting her onto her shoulders and delivering the Ocean Cyclone Suplex! Charles Robinson slid into position and counted once...




twice...








...and a third time! Manami Toyota retained the world title over her former friend in a classic!

Oof. If there was ever a way to see just how good the women's scene in Japan was despite the entirely fragmented nature it wound up in by 2001/2002. The scene still hasn't entirely recovered from the 2005 shutdowns of AJW and GAEA. Damn, though. Just damn.

This in-universe attendance would be the biggest since Big Egg Wrestling Universe in the early 1990s.

Ok you got me by giving the nod to Hokuto....I think I have a Mita bias or I would have picked Hokuto logically. Really like how your women's division is shaping up. I'm curious if you are considering touring them outside of Japan anytime soon?

Man, when I try to book women's matches in my OLLIE save( which I rediscovered recently and im having tons of fun with it!) They never go higher than C+. I guess I should switch to integrated for better match ratings.

Anyway, great show, as always! The toyota-yamada match was awesome! AND I completely forgot kaoru existed! She and megumi kudo were more hardcore than half the ECW roster at the time!

Can't wait for the Stu Hart Classic! LET'S GO EDDIE! (ACTUALLY I dont remember my predictions!)

Default October 2003: Grand Prix Wrap-up

Quote:
September 29th, 2003

"Thanks for everything you've done for WCW," I said, holding out my hand. The man smiled and shook it.

"I appreciate it," he said. "Never thought I'd be leavin' this place, but when Vince called, I figured I gotta take the shot, you know? Especially since, let's face it, I wasn't exactly a big part of your future plans."

I couldn't deny that. He was never a ring general in the first place, but these days he was struggling to keep up with the new WCW and our higher workrate. He was still a good guy to have on the roster, a familiar face and someone who had been willing to work with the younger guys on improving their games. I did try to keep him around, but the moment I heard Vince made him an offer I knew he'd be leaving. It's probably best for everybody. He might get a decent position in WWE since being a workhorse isn't as important there and you can skate by on notoriety and charisma, and for us it frees up another spot and television time, which is at a premium with our talent-rich roster.

"Good luck up there," I told him, meaning it.

"Thanks, Hitman," he said. "It'll be interesting to walk in there for the first time. Well, I guess it's not actually the first time, but this time the focus'll actually be on me and not my pink Cadillac."
















WWE will feel the 'bang'...but how much of a difference can DDP make at 47 years old?

Shinobu Kandori brightened the mood before the Grand Prix event by bringing in some drinks. After the show, I pulled Toyota aside and told her how great she is and how important she is to what we're building in Renaissance. I also gave Toshiyo Yamada a hug and congratulated her on delivering in the biggest match of her career, and I held up Etsuko Mita as a positive example for the younger girls to follow, as she had no problem putting Akira Hokuto over even though she's the one that's been a featured player since our women's division started.

I allowed David Flair's contract to expire. I'm sure it would've made Ric happy if I kept the kid around, but he just never figured out how to work. He is a bit more competent now after all that time in Wildside, but still not worth keeping around on this roster.

Evan Karagis' deal also expired. I'll admit it: I didn't even know he was running low. Whoops. It's too bad, because I actually had an idea I was considering for 3 Count in the future. Maybe I'll bring him back in a few months if I feel like running it.

Nitro is joining Renaissance on Seven Network Australia, an increase in visibility from our previous home, Ten Network.



NJPW remains in acquisition mode. They've added HARASHIMA, Jun Kasai and Seiji Yamakawa to their roster. Hopefully they don't suffer a setback and abruptly cut a bunch of guys again.

Naoya Ogawa, a part-timer, recently did an out of character interview where he not only took several shots at the company's top starts, but claimed the ownership owed him money. That can't make Inoki happy.



Our Spirits Will Rise Up was held on September 29th. The main event was Hiroshi Hase retaining the Triple Crown against Takao Omori. That match was far better than anything else on the show, and even that was only okay. The show as a whole was given a 73, which makes it their second worst PPV of the year.


Kensuke Sasaki did not sign a new deal with Zero One, so he's a free agent once again.


I've heard through the grapevine that Bryan Clark's going to retire in a few months. He hasn't done anything but the occasional small independent show since we got rid of him in July 2002, so I guess he's decided it isn't worth the time if he isn't going to be signed by anyone.

It sounds like TNA and Ring of Honor have been trading some barbs online, so I guess the ownership of those two companies don't like each other much.

Macho just put out a hardcore rap CD. That's...hell, I don't know what to say about that. It's a thing that happened.

Some guy named Johnny Fairplay apparently pulled a big heel move on the reality show Survivor that has everybody talking. I guess he dabbles in managing and commentating on the indies, so maybe TNA or somebody will bring him in to take advantage of his TV notoriety.

Are we back?





So I've been MIA from GDS for about two months now. And not just with this diary; I've fallen way behind on all the ones I've been following as a reader too. Long story short, I focused on another writing project of mine for all of May. Then I just kind of took it easy/got ready for my vacation in mid-late June. I got home from that a little under two weeks ago, and only now am I ready to dip my toe back into the water here. I'm going to skim over my last few posts to refresh my memory on where everything left off and where I intended to go next, and hopefully I'll run my first show in far too long either today or tomorrow. There's two weeks of TV to go before Halloween Havoc, so hopefully it won't be too far into the future before I get that preview up.

Not really. A good chunk of the Renaissance roster has quite a bit more popularity in Japan than anywhere else, so there's plenty of incentive to keep the brand based there. Plus it simplifies the planning of what regions my shows will be held in, which is something I put more time and thought into than you might expect.

Anyway, great show, as always! The toyota-yamada match was awesome! AND I completely forgot kaoru existed! She and megumi kudo were more hardcore than half the ECW roster at the time!

Can't wait for the Stu Hart Classic! LET'S GO EDDIE! (ACTUALLY I dont remember my predictions!)
Integrated seems to be the way to go, yeah.

I kind of forget Kaoru's around sometimes too.

PRAISE THE SUN!!! OUR PROPHET OF WORKRATE IS BACK!!!

oh man, me too, I completely forgot what happened In this diary! All I remember was Dustin Rhodes being the heavyweight champion and Eric bischoff letting his libido get in the way...i still can't believe I remember that! XD

KNOBLEMANIA IS still strong, hopefully. Is Samoa Joe's contract coming up? How's he doing in Japan?

Oooh, you got me intrigued with your writing project! What is it?

Sad to see DDP go. But Yeah, he wasn't that important in the grand scheme of things.
