Plot Summary: Famous Japanese pop idol Sakura Hagiwara is better suited for the dance floor than the wrestling ring. When she and fellow idol Elena are assigned to pose as wrestlers for a very special show, a vicious lady brawler by the name of Rio decides to teach the girls a lesson. Rio unleashes a flurry of ferocious of attacks on Elena. Shocked by the blush-inducing beating taken by her friend, Sakura vows to get her body ready to rumble and redeem the good name of idols everywhere by becoming a bona fide diva of the pro-wrestling world.
