Like the photobooks in the past, the majority of Stardom World has pictures of the wrestlers in casual attire or their ring attire. The younger wrestlers (like AZM, Hanan, and Ruaka) have very few pictures and the ones included are of them in their wrestling gear, so nothing scandalous. The only wrestlers that appear in lingerie are Bea, Chardonnay, and Scarlett as the Gaijin wrestlers went a little crazy, as the rest of the photos presented in the book are not the more ‘gravure’ style of pictures. The number of wrestlers featured is always impressive in Stardom World due to the size of the book, and this year is no different as it is a very comprehensive look at the Stardom roster in late 2017. A great book as the Stardom World series always is, and definitely recommended. Here is a sample of pictures from the photobook:
