I’ve been kind of down on WWE as of late and have been watching a bunch of random-ass wrestling stuff online during my lunch break. Today I decided to check out a recent show of Emi Sakura’s Gatoh Move Pro Wrestling. Though originally founded in Thailand it looks like most Gatoh Move shows are held in Japan.

This show was held at Ichigaya Chocolate Hiroba in Tokyo, Japan with 76 people in attendance. There is no ring here, just a mat on the floor.

OWE Phase 1 (December 5, 2018)

OWE

Awhile back as part of all the AEW hoopla they announced working relationships with a couple of overseas promotions, one of which was Oriental Wrestling Entertainment. I’d never heard of them before and did some Googling to find out more and what my initial searches turned up piqued my interest. An article on Voices of Wrestling quotes former WWE Cruiserweight Classic competitor, Ho Ho Lun, as saying, “OWE is putting wrestling into Kung Fu.” As someone who spent the bulk of his youth watching Shaw Brothers and Golden Harvest movies a wrestling promotion that marries kung fu and pro-wrestling together is very good to me, and so I decided to check them out.
