SLAMminLadies – Malia Hosaka vs Su Yung
Su Yung and Malia Hosaka are two of our favorite wrestlers, so our review of this match is probably not going to be as objective as it should be. It is also a SLAMminLadies production and their videos are generally crystal-clear and a visual delight with generous lighting and usually great ring action.
Anyway, back to this match: Malia Hosaka takes on Su Yung for the SLAMminLadies Asian title (ok, that there’s a tad ridiculous, even if it is supposed to follow the “how to set up a successful ladies professional wrestling match” guide-book closely). Both ladies look great in their wrestling attires, as the veteran vs relative newcomer angle is exploited as well.
Su’s wearing a flower-print one piece bathing suit with tan fishnets, kneepads and shiny white wrestling boots: she is the jobber here and she looks the part. She is also the reigning champion.
Malia’s just a generic skilled veteran in her metallic blue attire and matte sheer pantyhose.
The actual quality of the video is amazing. One is able to see the details of Su’s fishnet tights most of the time, the resolution is that good. The lighting is outstanding as well, as it is in most of SLAMminLadies’ videos. The ring is awesome: it is clean and looks right in just about every way, as is the actual venue where the action takes place. It’s not something to write home about, but it’s definitely neat, clean and just right to highlight the wrestlers and the action in the ring.
The match is basically a jobber beat-down, with Hosaka dominating Su, doing a lot of leg-work and eventually winning via a figure 4 leglock submission. There’s little to no high-flying in this one, as the focus seems to be on the technical aspects of mat wrestling. Overall, Su sells extremely well and Hosaka has already proven numerous times that she can dish it out better than anyone out there. Although there are a couple of minor botches, overall we found ourselves satisfied with the quality of the action. Again: those looking for ring-imploding slams and high flying action will not like this, and those who do not particularly like Su Yung or Malia Hosaka (hard to believe there may be fans like this out there) won’t either. We however loved the technical aspect of the match and in the end, when the suspiciously generic-looking belt changed hands, we felt that we had gotten our money’s worth out of it.
