Gaea Japan (1995–2005)
Satomura made her professional wrestling debut for all female promotion Gaea Japan on April 15, 1995, defeating Sonoko Kato. On November 2, 1996, Meiko Satomura and Sonoko Kato defeated Sugar Sato and Chikayo Nagashima to become the inaugural AAAW Tag Team Champions. Satomura would go on to win that title on two more occasions, teaming with Ayako Hamada, and Chikayo Nagashima. She also won the AAAW Singles Championship twice, with her second reign ending at the hands of Aja Kong on April 3, 2005. Gaea Japan closed a week later on April 10 after staging its farewell show where Satomura defeated her trainer Chigusa Nagayo in the main event.
World Championship Wrestling (1996–1997)
In 1996, Satomura started appearing for World Championship Wrestling (WCW) through Gaea Japan's working relationship with WCW which was attempting to establish a women's division. Satomura participated in an eight-woman tournament for the inaugural WCW Women's Championship but was eliminated in the first round by eventual winner Akira Hokuto. When WCW introduced a second title for the women she entered into that tournament too, but was again knockout out in the first round by Toshie Uematsu who went on to win the tournament. Satomura continued to make appearances for WCW until the business relationship between the two promotions ended.
Sendai Girls' Pro Wrestling (2006–present)
Following Gaea Japan's closure, Satomura formed the promotion Sendai Girls' Pro Wrestling with Jinsei Shinzaki.
On September 23, 2009, Satumora participated in the Splash J & Running G tournament along with Kaoru and Tomoko Kuzumi. In the Semi Final, Satumora's team defeated the Dynamite Kansai, Makie Numao and Yasuko Kuragaki to advance to the final. In the final, they defeated the team of Hikari Fukuoka, Kanako Motoya and Sonoko Kato to win the Splash J & Running G tournament.
Chikara (2012, 2016–present)
In May 2012, Satumora made her Chikara debut during the promotion's Aniversario weekend. That same year, Satumora returned to Chikara, participating in the group's premier tournament King of Trios. In 2016, Satumora along with Cassandra Miyagi and Dash Chisako won the King of Trios tournament. The trio was announced for the 2017 edition of the tournament.
Satomura appeared in the 2000 documentary Gaea Girls made for the BBC by Kim Longinotto and Jano Williams.
