Bull Nakano Career

Nakano embarked on her professional wrestling journey with All Japan Women’s Pro-Wrestling (AJW) in Japan at the age of 15. Her early success saw her clinch the AJW Junior Championship at just 16, earning her the moniker Nakano. She continued to rise, securing the AJW Championship in July 1985, a title she held for three consecutive years.

Following the retirement of Matsumoto, Nakano achieved further glory by capturing the NWA World Tag Team Championship twice more, partnering with Condor Saito in 1987 and Grizzly Iwamoto in 1988. In singles competition, she claimed victory in the 1988 Japan Grand Prix, holding the title for nearly three years before relinquishing it to Aja Kong in November 1992. However, her prominence in AJW waned thereafter.

Departing AJW, Nakano ventured to Mexico in June 1992, reaching the finals of a 12-woman battle royal and later defeating Lola González to become Consejo Mundial de Lucha Libre’s inaugural World Women’s Champion. Her reign was short-lived, losing the title to Xóchitl Hamada in March 1993.

She then set her sights on the United States, rejoining the World Wrestling Federation (WWF). Teaming up with Luna Vachon, Nakano challenged WWF Women’s Champion Alundra Blayze at SummerSlam in August 1994 but fell short. However, she avenged this loss by dethroning Blayze on November 20, 1994, at the Big Egg Wrestling Universe event in Tokyo.

In 1995, Nakano participated in the historic New Japan Pro-Wrestling/World Championship Wrestling (WCW) Collision in Korea event in Pyongyang, which drew a staggering 150,000 spectators. She emerged victorious alongside Akira Hokuto, defeating Manami Toyota and Mariko Yoshida. Additionally, she showcased her talents at WCW’s World War 3 pay-per-view event later that year, triumphing over Cutie Suzuki and Mayumi Ozaki alongside Hokuto.

Nakano clinched the WWF Women’s Championship at SummerSlam 1994 amidst this feud, although her title reign was brief. Despite not spending her entire career in WWE, Nakano’s impact on the promotion is undeniable, particularly due to her feud with Blayze and championship victory, which garnered significant attention for the women’s division. In 2024, Nakano was honored with induction into the WWE Hall of Fame, cementing her legacy in the company’s history.

Nakano’s interference ultimately led to Wolf defeating Blackheart.
