Kagetsu returns to Women of Honor competition at Best in the World 2018 on June 29 in Baltimore! Kagetsu returns stateside as one half of the Goddess of Stardom Champions with Hana Kimura and a litany of accolades!
The decade-long veteran is in the prime of her career and is a member of the faction Oedo Tai. Oedo Tai is one of the most dominant groups in Stardom, where she has held the Goddess of Stardom Championships twice and the Artist of Stardom Championships, their six-women championship, once!
Kagetsu has some familiarity with a few of the domestic favorites in the Women of Honor division, having fended off “The Gatekeeper” Kelly Klein and her then-partner Bea Priestly after Kelly and Bea won the Goddess of Stardom Tag Team tournament to win a shot at the championships!
Kagetsu has clearly excelled in tag team wrestling but remains a major threat in singles action, as well! Kagetsu has an impressive combination of speed and power, using the Ebisu Drop, a devastating variation of the Michinoku Driver from a firewoman’s carry position, and the Oedo Coaster, a 450 splash!
Kagetsu, who is an accomplished judoka, is not afraid to resort to tactics that are less than honorable. Not afraid to spit water or spew mist, Kagetsu is willing to go to any limit to pick up a victory, making her a major threat to become Women of Honor Champion! Will Kagetsu compete in singles action or will we see her accompanied by Oedi Tai? What we do know is Kagetsu will compete in both Baltimore LIVE at Best in the World AND the next night in Fairfax, VA at ROH’s international television taping.
