1. 6-Person Tag Team Death Match: Mio Shirai, Maki Narumiya, Isami Kodaka, Mayumi Ozaki, X, X

Union, Oz Academy, Pro Wrestling WAVE and Ice Ribbon are getting together for a joint event next month. The centrepiece of the show is Mio Shirai who at the beginning of the year signed contracts with each of the four companies. The show is called “M.I.O” which stands for Mission Inn Odate. The main event will be a 6-Person Tag Team Death Match. Shirai will be participating in her first ever Death Match along with Ice Ribbon’s Maki Narumiya. Union’s Isami Kodaka and Oz’s Mayumi Ozaki plus two more wrestlers. The type of Death Match and the teams will be decided on a later date.

When asked why she would compete in a Death Match, Shirai said she’s never done one in the 7 years she’s been wrestling. She’s done unusual matches that involved using weapons and wrestling in costumes but never a Death Match. Suggested matches for the rest of the card are Aja Kong Vs Jaiko Ishikawa, Seiya Morohashi Vs Police, Tsukushi Vs Shuji Ishikawa (!?!?) and Sumire Natsu Vs Tsukushi.
