Future of Stardom Championship
Ruaka (c) vs. Mai Sakurai vs. Waka Tsukiyama

Following her successful title defense against Lady C, Ruaka was welcomed by two challengers as the two rookies of Cosmic Angels stepped up for the challenge. Ruaka made it clear that she wants to face Hanan at Stardom Dream Queendom, so she agreed to face these two to get both defenses out of the way now. An interesting game plan by the champion, who now doesn’t have to be pinned to lose her title. That being said, Ruaka should be walking out with the title here. Prediction: Ruaka

Momo Watanabe & AZM vs. Unagi Sayaka & Lady C

In what could be one of the final times MOMOAZ ever team up, they will face the oddball pairing of Unagi Sayaka and Lady C. Sayaka and Lady C have teamed in the past but this is a match that has little to no factors to it outside of it being a potential final time for MOMOAZ. Momo Watanabe and AZM will be occupied in faction warfare the next time Stardom heads to PPV, as they will compete with Oedo Tai with the loser having to go to a new faction. Starlight Kid has made it abundantly clear that she wants Watanabe to join the group, making this MOMOAZ team up a potential final time. They should not be losing here. Prediction: Momo Watanabe & AZM

Mayu Iwatani, Hazuki & Hanan vs. Rina, Saki Kashima & Fukigen Death

The newly-designed STARS will get to team together at Tokyo Super Wars as they face Oedo Tai. Mayu Iwatani and Hazuki are what Stardom fans would rightfully call a dream team. Add in the up-and-coming Hanan, it makes for a formidable and potentially dangerous trio. Rina, Saki Kashima, and Fukigen Death are an interesting trio as they aren’t at the top of the card by any means for the promotion but can pull off an upset at any time. Expect this to be a great showing for the STARS trio more than anything. Prediction: Mayu Iwatani, Hazuki & Hanan

Wonder of Stardom Contender’s Match
Saya Kamitani vs. Natsupoi vs. Himeka

After a triple threat match at Kawasaki Super Wars saw Mina Shirakawa win and challenge Tam Nakano later in the night for the Wonder of Stardom Championship, three women have a chance to do the same in a more official circumstance. The next challenger for the Wonder of Stardom Championship will be decided as Saya Kamitani, Natsupoi, and Himeka all vie for a shot. It’s been an interesting couple of weeks since the completion of the Goddess of Stardom Tag League finals as that was the event that saw Natsupoi and Himeka show they are having problems with each other. As the triple threat match draws closer, it only begins to benefit Kamitani, who had seemingly been at a disadvantage if HimePoi wanted to be on the same page.

“The Golden Phoenix” not only seems to be the favorite heading into the match but the one who can dethrone Nakano. Kamitani came all too close to winning the championship after winning the Cinderella Tournament earlier this year and has only shown improvement since. Her dominance hasn’t been as apparent with her eating a number of losses as of late but she just needs one win to rise like a “Phoenix.” It is Kamitani’s time. Prediction: Saya Kamitani

High-Speed Championship
Starlight Kid (c) vs. Koguma

One of the best aspects of Stardom (when they care) is the high-speed division. Everything about it screams exciting professional wrestling and this Saturday will see two of the best the division has to offer faceoff for the High-Speed Championship. Starlight Kid has raised the belt since defeating Natsupoi for it and her title defense against Momo Watanabe received rave reviews for its change of pace from traditional High-Speed Title defenses. Facing off with Koguma, however, means that her toughest challenge might have arrived. Koguma is an all-timer in the high-speed division of Stardom and has been looking to get the title back since making her return earlier this year. These two have chemistry and we should expect nothing less than greatness Saturday night. Prediction: Starlight Kid

World of Stardom Championship Match Rights & SWA World Championship in a UWF Rules Match
Syuri (c) vs. Konami

A match that has been scheduled for what feels like forever finally arrives at Tokyo Super Wars. Konami has returned to Stardom and is ready to challenge Syuri for the World of Stardom Match Rights and the SWA World Championship. Syuri has managed to defend both successfully against Saki Kashima and AZM, showing that little to nothing can stop her from her destiny. All that being said, no one in Stardom knows Syuri as well as Konami does. She’s been waiting for this shot and while she’s always come so close to major wins, Konami often comes up short. With a title match at Ryogoku Sumo Hall on the line and UWF Rules set for the encounter, it should be a must-see match that should come down to the wire. Prediction: Syuri 

Wonder of Stardom Championship
Tam Nakano (c) vs. Mina Shirakawa

A feud between friends is nothing foreign to Stardom but an often occurrence. At a time that Himeka and Natsupoi are at odds, it feels as if there is change coming all around. Tam Nakano last defended her Wonder of Stardom Championship against Unagi Sayaka at Kawasaki Super Wars in what was a match of Sayaka proving herself. This bout between Nakano and Mina Shirakawa, however, has a completely different feeling from that one. There’s no question Shirakawa wants to prove herself, but she wants to make Nakano see her. The majority of the anger that she has built up with Nakano is that the champion only seems to ever think about her former friends like Arisa Hoshiki and Mayu Iwatani rather than those who stand by her now.

It’s all fair if you have followed Nakano for much of the last two years as many of her dreams and goals revolve around those who she has moved on from. This match should be physical, personal, and one that surprises more than just regular Stardom fans. It’s a chance for Shirakawa to show Nakano that she should be worried about her moving forward too. Prediction: Tam Nakano

World of Stardom Championship
Utami Hayashishita (c) vs. Maika

The third battle between World of Stardom Champion Utami Hayashishita and Maika will go down in the main event Saturday. They are 1-1 against each other this year as Hayashishita was able to successfully defend her title for the second time in January at the 10th Anniversary show and Maika defeated Hayashishita for the second straight year in the 5 STAR Grand Prix. Maika is the last woman that stands between the highly-anticipated rematch between Hayashishita and Syuri at Stardom Dream Queendom as long as Syuri defeats Konami earlier in the night.

Hayashishita and Maika have chemistry that few have right now and seem to only get better as they wrestle each other. Hayashishita wants to get that win over Syuri and has had her focus on her since the conclusion of the 5 STAR. That means it might be Maika’s opportunity to sweep in a shock the world. Despite that hope for an upset, Hayashishita has had one of the best title reigns in Stardom history and it shouldn’t be ending Saturday. Prediction: Utami Hayashishita
