In the biggest surprise of the weekend, Himeka Arita made her STARDOM debut at the promotion’s first live event since March.
At STARDOM is again, there were five unannounced matches. The Joshi promotion revealed the card to both the fans and the wrestler involved on the day of the show.
In the main event, Donna del Mondo and a mystery partner took on STARS—Mayu Iwatani, Tam Nakano, Starlight Kid, and Saya Iida. Meika was the secret competitor and the final participant in the eight-woman tag match.
Notably, Giulia used her rival, Hana Kimura‘s, run-in-place Big Boot as a tribute to the late leader of Tokyo Cyber Squad. In addition, Nakano paid homage to her friend and tag team partner, Arisa Hoshiki, when she used her signature corner step-up roundhouse kick, 1399.
In the end, Himeka hit Iida with her Argentine Backbreaker to pick up the win. Afterward, she officially became the fourth member of Donna del Mondo.
Himeka has worked with Pro Wrestling WAVE, SEAdLINNNG PURE-J, World Women Pro-Wrestling Diana, and Ice Ribbon. However, she is probably best known for her time with Actwres girl’Z.
She left AgZ at the end of March following a loss to Tsukasa Fujimoto at Act In Nagoya.
