[All Japan News] AJP announced the full card for October 21 show for their 40th Anniversary Tour.
SUSHI announced that he will be bringing a new friend known as BIG SUSHI to help him against both of the Aegyptus Aerial’s on 10/21 at Nagoya. It is unknown at this time who will be playing “BIG SUSHI”, but SUSHI is looking to reclaim his stolen tamago’s from his mask.
GET WILD’s Manabu Soya has found himself with a losing streak against STACK OF ARM’s Masayuki Kono as of late, and with their leaders in Takao Omori & Masakatsu Funaki facing off in the main event it was just fitting to have the other two team members facing off.
Following the weekends shows, Hiroshi Yamato managed to withstand a brutal encounter with DDT’s Kenny Omega, in which led to Yamato losing one of his teeth. Yamato is ready for his next match, but at this time there is still no next challenger names. Since no challenger has stepped up he clarified once again that himself and Shuji Kondo plan on going after Pro Wrestling NOAH’s GHC Jr. Tag Team titles. Yamato & Kondo will team together on 10/23 to take on Kaz Hayashi & MAZADA in the opening contest.
Seiya Sanada will be defending his newly won GAORA TV Championship against the man he beat in the final match Yasufumi Nakanoueno. Nakanoueno has really started to show his own since the start of this tournament, but during the semi-final match against Kazushi Miyamoto, Yasufumi took quite a beating.
Because of the fact of Yasufumi was treated like so earlier in the night, he appealed for a rematch against Sanada, “I want to try one more time”.
All Japan’s President Masayuki Uchida was happy to oblige and sign the rematch as he himself wants to see the match happen. To see the power and determination of the young talent within the promotion was the reason why the GAORA TV belt was formed. To give the young talent to have something to strive for.
