By the mid-1990s, there were several joshi promotions, and the "retire at 25" policy was abandoned, allowing the Crush Gals (among others) to return (ironically, given their famous feud with Dump Matsumoto, as monster heels that beat up the new generation of cute, young faces). However, this meant AJW had the same problem as many other wrestling promotions: the veterans wanted to hold onto their spots at the top of the card, and they weren't willing to give them up to newer wrestlers. This, combined with financial mismanagement by the owners and the general decline in the popularity of pro wrestling in the early [[TurnOfTheMillennium 2000s]], led to AJW losing its TV deal in 2002, and eventually folding in 2005. However, its legacy of housing arguably the greatest women's wrestlers - and some of the best women's wrestling matches - in the history of the industry remains.

* AndNowForSomethingCompletelyDifferent: In the early 1990s they started putting men with silly gimmicks like Mr. Buddhaman and [[Wrestling/TheGreatMuta The Great Little Muta]] in the opening match. This may have been the result of deciding to use the midgets titles that were held over from the WWWA but at the ''AJW Wrestlemarinepiad II'' in 1990, Xóchitl Hamada's father teamed up with Kendo and Wrestling/UltimoDragon to take on Los Brazos for the UWA trios titles, which was especially different since Zenjo had no division for tercia matches.

* OneSteveLimit: Ignored when Kaoru Ito was paired with Kaoru Maeda. Two was enough though, as Dump Matsumoto's first name is ''also'' Kaoru.

* EightiesHair: Surprisingly tame, but there were enough noticeable cases during the 1980s, such as Dump Matsumoto, as well as Mexicans Irma González and Irma Águilar.
