Spark Joshi announces US Debut of SAKI at Ignite East 2023
Japanese pro wrestler, SAKI, leader of the "GPU COLOR'S" stable, will make her American debut at Spark Joshi Ignite East 2023 on June 11th 2023 in New Jersey.
SAKI's pro wrestling career began in Japan as one of the few applicants to be accepted into "VoLume II", an idol wrestler project produced by All Japan Women's Pro Wrestling (AJW) legend, Takako Inoue. She made her in-ring debut at the end of the following year in a tag team match, teaming up with fellow trainee and present-day TJPW Princess of Princess champion, MIZUKI, against Shinobu Kandori and Takako Inoue herself.
She has since gone on to hold titles in multiple Japanese promotions including Ice Ribbon, Pro Wrestling WAVE, Actwres girl'Z, Gatoh Move, and Pure-J. In 2022, she also became the leader of joshi puroresu stable "Girl Prowrestling Unit COLOR'S" (or "GPU COLOR'S") and participated in Stardom's 5★Star Grand Prix tournament.
See SAKI in the United States for the first time live at SPARK Joshi's "Ignite East" event at the Heart Ballroom on June 11th. Tickets go on sale May 1st.
The SPARK Joshi brand is dedicating to bringing together some of the best from Japan while also shining a spotlight on western wrestlers who would qualify for the same spot under the high standards of pro wrestling companies in Japan.
Earlier this week, the company also announced the US debut of Ram Kaichow, who began her career as the youngest pro wrestler in the world and has since gone on to appear in both of the largest women's wrestling promotions in Japan today. She will appear live at the SPARK Joshi event, "Ignite West", in the Los Angeles area on June 16th. Tickets for the first west coast show will go on sale May 5th.
"Anime and Japanese video games have been part of American pop culture for decades," says head booker "Chibi C.B." C.B. Liffer. "It's time for a new wave of joshi wrestling everywhere. We believe in the adage that a rising tide lifts all boats, so we're in talks with many wonderful groups of all sizes in Japan as we import joshi puroresu to the United States. We're here to light the Spark that will make joshi puroresu the international cultural phenomenon it deserves to be."
