As year two of the new era of Actwres Girl’Z begins, Korakuen Hall is the site of the singles title tournament finale. After a year of competing for points, AWG is returning with a tangible prize to win and hold. The championship belt is a symbol, one of being the best wrestler and someone the company can count on to carry on their shoulders. It was a six-competitor field with fans drawing numbered balls to fill the brackets.

In the main event, the defacto Ace, Miku Aono is taking on the star of the future Kouki. In a previous Korakuen encounter, Miku had to throw every move in her arsenal to put down the rookie and Kouki has only improved since that day. Miku on the other hand has already been performing the role of champion, walking to the ring with grace and dignity far greater than many wrestlers with a physical title. The sacrifice she made by becoming exclusive to AWG was not slight, nor does she intend for it to be in vain.

This is the most important show of the relaunched Actwrestling, it is here that the face of AWG for 2023 and beyond is decided. Tonight will be where one of their legacies is solidified
