    [All Japan News] AJPW announced the upcoming event cards for their “Summer Impact 2014” tour in August.

    The tour will begin on August 16th at the Korakuen Hall. The show will see both the return of Go Shiozaki and Akebono to in-ring competition. Akebono will be taking part in a Triple Crown Premium Tag match as he teams with a former champion in Jun Akiyama to take on the current Triple Crown champion Joe Doering and another former Triple Crown champion Takao Omori.
    Go Shiozaki on the other hand will be taking on Suwama in a singles match, which is more or less a rekindling of their previous singles encounters over the last year and a half.
    The Asia Tag belts will also be in defense as “Dream Team Futures” Shigehiro Irie & Keisuke Ishii will be defending against Kento Miyahara & Kotaro Suzuki. Miyahara specifically has been a roll as of late and has his whole mind set on capturing a championship in All Japan.

    As for changes leading into the show, Yoshei Nakajima, who is formerly Menso~re Oyaji, will now be competing as himself and as part of the “Xceed” group from now going forward. [Pictured top right: Yohei Nakajima, Go Shiozaki, Kento Miyahara & Kotaro Suzuki]

  6. Notes: 3 / 2 months ago 

    [AJPW News] All Japan held a few press conferences for their upcoming title matches scheduled to take place throughout the month of July.

    First up, Suwama stated that he is eager for this match against Joe Doering on July 27th. As it has been one of “Evolution’s” goals for him and Doering to face off with the Triple Crown on the line. He also stated that they will both show off what it means to compete in the new All Japan and showcase the true value of the Triple Crown. That there is an inherent responsibility to have the best match possible. He said that his rivalry with Doering has been very much present for years and that is also what made them so good as a tag team as well. They both know their strengths and weaknesses as well.

    Jun Akiyama and Takao Omori then talked about their upcoming World Tag defense set against “Dark Kingdom’s” KENSO & Mitsuya Nagai on July 12th. Akiyama stated that it is fitting that his first match under the new All Japan will be with the World Tag belts on the line. That he knows the responsibilities that he faces now as president but then he knows what he must face in the ring against the DK thugs. Akiyama also mentioned KENSO’s absence from the recent press conference to signal the latest changes in All Japan, that KENSO seems to be rebelling from Akiyama’s new leadership position. KENSO has been silent for the most part, but his open attack on Akiyama and Omori back on June 29th seemed to have a little something extra with it.

    Atsushi Aoki and Hikaru Sato where both present for the conference leading into the World Junior title match on July 27th. The Champion Aoki finally agreed to a match against the challenger Hikaru after their encounters in June. Aoki noted that they both share similar styles in a way, especially with the emphasis on arm locks and bars to win matches. Aoki knows Hikaru’s connections to Pancrase and is hoping he brings all of that skill out in their upcoming match. This is Aoki’s first reign as a junior singles champion and he wants to prove himself in anyway possible. Hikaru knows it has been a rough road since he has started competing in All Japan, but he is committed to showcase himself fully as a junior in All Japan. He ended the conference by stating that 2014 is his year to show who he has truly become.

    Then lastly, Xceed’s Kento Miyahara and reigning GAORA TV Champion Kotaro Suzuki came out to talk about the upcoming tour and the matches that they will be faced with. Miyahara said that there is a void with Go Shiozaki out with an injury, but he and Kotaro aim to keep the group going strong in his absence. Kento then acknowledged that a good part of the tour in July will see him in singles matches as he aims to further break out as a singles competitor. That he vowed to not let this chance just fade away. He stated that his goal is to become the center of All Japan and to one day wear the Triple Crown around his waist. Which interesting enough, his first singles match on the tour will be against the current Triple Crown champion Suwama on July 12th. That no matter what may happen that he will prove himself first and foremost.
    Kotaro Suzuki will then be making his 3rd defense of the GAORA TV belt as he takes on Dragon Gate’s K-ness. on July 26th. Back on May 18th, Kotaro and K-ness. originally faced in a tag match that ended in a double pinfall. Kotaro then accepted the challenge from K-ness. to put the GAORA belt on the line. Kotaro has sworn that he will not let the belt fall from his waist as he aims to further raise the value of the belt.

    ~ 1st title defense.

    SUSHI’s next defense of the GAORA TV belt has officially be determined as well as Kotaro Suzuki will be getting the match that he has been demanding as of late on May 17 in Yokohama. Kotaro had asserted himself fairly early on in April to be SUSHI’s next challenger, but his challenge was never met with a definitive answer. Though with the upcoming tour the time was right for a match to be set. Kotaro aims to test SUSHI’s goal of raising the value of the belt, as right now he does not appear to be doing the best job of that. Kotaro aims to breath new life into the belt, while SUSHI looks to protect his reign.

    Suwama closed the press conference by stating that he is looking for anyone to challenge Doering and himself for the World Tag belts. Though he further elaborated that he will not be accepting Takao Omori’s challenge as he is already the next contender for the Triple Crown belt. Also given the fact that they already beat the team of Omori and Akiyama back in February of this year. Other than that, Suwama is looking for a “strong challengers”. The field is completely open for any team to come forward.
