Mei Seira Keeps High-Speed Title in Fast-Paced Belt Defense

Mei Seira gets her third victory as High-Speed Champion

By: James Carlin

Back at Aichi Prefectural Gymnasium, Mei Seira defeated Saki Kashima to win the High-Speed Championship. Since then she has defended the title twice – first against freelancer Momoka Hanazono at Gold Rush in November, then against Thekla at Nagoya Big Winter in December.

Today, she found herself defending against Fukigen Death – the alter ego of veteran wrestler Kaori Yoneyama – who shouldn’t go underestminated in the ring for someone her age. But unfortunately for Death, tonight was not the night as Seira defeated her by submission to obtain her third championship defense.

After the match, Seira said that she wants to defend the title against Hazuki in the future, nominating her as the next challenger.

Even though she may have lost this time, Death is a three-time holder of the title, having won it once when it was still apart of NEO (as Kaori Yoneyama) and then twice more, once still as Kaori Yoneyama, then her third time as Death Yama-san as part of Tokyo Cyber Squad.

Additionally, Yoneyama has wrestled almost a 2800 matches since her debut in 1999, and has a lot of experience in the squared circle compared to Seira, who has only had 260 since her debut in 2018. (For comparison, Kazuchika Okada has had 1715 matches since his debut, Bryan Danielson has 1942 matches since debut, and Chris Jericho has 2650).
