Hello ladies and gentlemen, I am your host, the Baumeister. It’s Theme Thursday, where I take one a particular theme of my choosing and present it to you.  It could be based off a promotion, or a match type, or a gimmick group.  There’ll be my thoughts on the theme, as well as video clips that I’ve enjoyed.

This week’s theme: Joshi Puroresu.

Joshi puroresu is what women’s wrestling is called in Japan.  There have been many acclaimed Joshi promotions over the course of history, such as AJP, GAEA, and now have moved on to the likes of STARDOM, Ice Ribbon, Oz Academy, among others.  These ladies push themselves nearly as hard as their male counterparts.  I’ve selected three Joshi matches for your viewing featuring some of the modern legends of our sport.

So, what did you think of this week’s theme? Have any themes you’d like to see featured here? Let me know in the comments.  Until next time, I am the Baumeister.
