Kairi Hojo Has Last Match in STARDOM

Sunday afternoon at Shinkiba 1st RING in Tokyo, Japan, Kairi Hojo had her final match for STARDOM before she heads off to WWE.  It was a standing room only crowd that included members of Kairi’s family.  STARDOM aired a tribute video to Kairi during intermission and and also had some of her wrestling gear on display.

In the announced main event, Hojo, Konami and Hiromi Mimura lost their Artist of Stardom trios championships to the team of HZK, AZM and Io Shirai.  However, after the main event concluded, it was announced there would be an impromptu bonus match with Kairi Hojo facing ten different members of the Stardom roster in one minute time limit matches.  After the matches, each member of the Stardom roster gave Kairi a farewell message.
