Giulia American Debut
Over the past decade, the domain of women’s wrestling has witnessed remarkable advancements. However, the journey towards gender equality in this field is far from over. Regrettably, female matches are frequently disregarded and removed from the schedule, even before the show commences. On Sunday, Impact and NJPW showcased the incredible potential of women’s wrestling to the world. Fans were delighted by a four-way NJPW Strong women’s title competition. This match put champion Giulia vs. stardom star Momo Kohgo and stars from impact Gisele Shaw and Deonna Purrazzo.
This match held a special significance for the fans beyond just being another match. A momentous occasion took place as the celebrated wrestler, Giulia, hailing from Stardom promotions in Japan, made her highly anticipated debut in the United States. The match was a true spectacle, showcasing the exceptional skill and strength of women’s wrestling, which can undoubtedly rival that of their male counterparts. The crowd was fully captivated, showing their unwavering support for women’s wrestling as they chanted and cheered throughout the entire arena. One particular moment during the match was so extraordinary that it left the audience in awe, applauding in admiration of the impressive exchange that occurred. The arena was filled with a chant of “this is awesome.” The ending of the match came when Giulia was able to hits the Northern Lights Bomb and gain a pinfall victory. Retaining her belt in the process. Overall and amazing match that if you have not seen yet, you should go back and catch the replay.
