- "You know, I'll tell you, I have seen a lot of good tag teams, and The Glamour Girls, I'm gonna go on the record, they're in trouble. Because the Jumping Bomb Angels are something else. I've never seen lady wrestlers with the kind of moves that they got. They're like watching a Dynamite Kid or like watching a Randy 'Macho Man' Savage or like watching a Ricky Steamboat with those aerial moves. It was just fantastic, I enjoyed it."
The Jumping Bomb Angels (Noriyo Tateno and Itsuki Yamazaki) were a female Japanese Professional Wrestling Tag Team from The Eighties. They formed in 1981 and wrestled for All Japan Women's Pro-Wrestling. On January 5, 1986, they defeated Bull Nakano and Condor Saito for the AJW WWWA World Tag Team Titles. They arrived in WWE for a feud with the WWF Women's Tag Team Champions The Glamour Girls (Leilani Kai and Judy Martin). They made their one PPV appearance as the survivors of the Team Moolahnote -Team Sherrinote match at Survivor Series 1987. They won the belts in a 2 out of 3 Falls Match at WWF Royal Rumble 1988 on January 24th, and lost them back on AJW's TV show on June 8th. They broke up in 1991.
