This is huge news as the show will be Meiko’s PROGRESS Wrestling debut. And she’s been inserted into a championship match. Against who remains to be seen.
Her reputation has come on in leaps and bounds in the past few years. From co-founding Sendai Girls Pro Wrestling to traveling the world in her 24-year career. Picking up titles in AAAW, Stardom, Sendai Girls, and even became Fight Club: Pro World Champion. Meiko really is a leading light in women’s wrestling.
As to who her opponent could be? The current champion is surely top of the list…
Jordynne Grace has been blazing a trail across the world in her own way recently too and in a shorter time span. In eight short years, Grace has burst onto the world scene in a big way. Working in promotions like Beyond Wrestling, Pro Wrestling EVE, Combat Zone Wrestling, Impact Wrestling, and PROGRESS Wrestling. As well as being the current PROGRESS Women’s Champion, she was a Black Label Pro Champion (pinning Tom Lawlor in the process). And also the longest reigning Pro Wrestling Magic Women’s champion in the companies history.
But a lot could happen between now and September. Jordynne I’m sure will have many challenges between now and September.
Could Meiko follow Jordynne’s lead and win the Women’s Championship on her debut?
Blake’s Take: I’ve personally been a huge fan of Meiko’s since I saw her in Fight Club: Pro early last year. She is a take no prisoners style woman in the ring but the most demure and kind woman out of it. She can handle big men (Mark Davis of Aussie Open) and the smallest of women (Io Shirai). Meiko Satomura To Challenge For PROGRESS Women’s Championship is something fans should be excited about.
