[DIAMOND RING/VooDoo MURDERS/NOAH News] Katsuhiko Nakajima announced that he will be bringing in Yutaka Yoshie to team up with him and Kajiwara to take on the VooDoo MURDERS on March 17.
Since size and height is a factor in the up coming match, Nakajima has taken it upon himself to find someone who can back up their height with the large size and that man is Yoshie. All 3 members of the VooDoo MURDERS they are facing are all over 180cm (Kento 186cm/97kg, Taishi 190cm/95kg & TARU 185cm/100kg) which completely beats the 175cm/97kg of Nakajima and the 170cm/83kg of Kajiwara. So the 180cm/150kg frame of Yutaka Yoshie is what Katsukaji (Katsuhiko & Kajiwara) are hoping will be bring the extra power that they need.
The whole event card for the 3.17 show has been announced which you can see below.

Also in a separate interview it seems that Miyahara & Takizawa have mentioned their intentions of going after the GHC Heavy Tag Team belts. Both men will make their first appearances as a team in NOAH on 3.10, and it seems they aim to make a statement when they face the Bravado Brothers.
With NOAH’s Global Tag League tournament coming up in April one could easily speculate that they will be one of the participating teams.
