The company later shared that it would be air the tournament in its entirety on Stardom World. It should also be noted that promos that help to promote the event will later on in the week. One of the most interesting things to note is how matches are won or lost. Winners are determined in a couple of different ways. They are determined by pinfall, submission or if they throw their opponent over the top rope to the floor. It is refreshing to see the over the top rope to the floor way to determine a winner. This isn’t typically used in today’s world of wrestling.
The round of 16 stars includes the following names; Mayu Iwatani, Hana Kimura, Maika, Utami Hayashishita, Natsuko Tora, Saya Kamitani, Tam Nakano, Saki Kashima, Syuri, Jamie Hayter, Konami, AZM, Jungle Kyona, Giulia, Momo Watanabe, and Starlight Kid. Each one of these women could walk away as the winner of the tournament. Much like the growing number of promotions around the world STARDOM is taking a stand. Their decision to air the event is as much a thank you to fans as it is anything else. The promotion has shown a commitment to their talent and their fans with the airing of this event.
While names like Watanabe and Iwatani are among the most popular, AEW’s Jamie Hayter could be the one that takes the tournament win. Although making predictions can be fun the true glee should be in fans’ ability to watch the first round of STARDOM Cinderella tournament.
