  4. 1 week ago 

    [NOAH News] A signing ceremony was held for the upcoming GHC Heavyweight Championship match between the champion Naomichi Marufuji and the challenger Katsuhiko Nakajima. Also Maru announced the next “GREAT VOYAGE” show will be held on September 23 at the Niigata City Gymnasium along with a first ever match to take place in the Noah ring.

    This upcoming GHC Heavy defense will see the two BRAVE teammates going head-to-head which is also happens to be Nakajima’s hometown. Marufuji will be heading into the match with a current 2 win streak over Nakajima in singles matches as of this point. Nakajima’s last challenge or the GHC Heavy came just a little over 9 months when he lost against the then champion KENTA on October 5, 2013.

    Marufuji stated that the first defense of the belt is very important and Nakajima is indeed the right guy as they have been both best friends and fierce rivals throughout the years. Maru noted that he has fallen short in recent times when it came to reclaiming the GHC Heavy belt and that he aims to make sure that this reign means something. Maru also stated that he won the GHC Heavyweight belt through his determination to defend Noah against the NJPW’s Yuji Nagata and he cannot let Nakajima win, who carries the DIAMOND RING banner.

    Nakajima stated that he is honored that Marufuji wants to face him first, but with that said he knows how much is on the line at the same time. He mentioned that Maru might be the leader of BRAVE, but his goal is to defeat Marufuji in the ring. As noted earlier with the loss record that he current has hanging over himself against Maru, Nakajima stated that he does not wish to suffer defeat once more. He will do his best against Marufuji as it is his own goal to one day hold the GHC Heavyweight belt.

    ———————————————————————————————-

    Marufuji then announced that the “GREAT VOYAGE” will be held on September 23rd at the Niigata City Gymnasium. Also announced is a big change for Noah as they will be working along with ZERO1’s First-On Stage and the “Dai H
    anabi (Great Fireworks)” to be a part of the show. What this means is that Noah will be hosting their very first ever “Electric Current Blast Death Match” with Atsushi Onita. Both promotions were scheduled to be holding an event at the same time in Niigata, but due to some working between the committee’s it was decided that a “union box office” would be more beneficial.
    Something that was also mentioned is that the GHC Tag belts could very well be defended in this match if Takashi Sugiura and Masato Tanaka are still champions by that time. As Onita has made the challenge for a GHC belt to be on the line. Shinjiro Otani is also scheduled to compete on the show, and could potentially be Onita’s partner.

    [NOAH News] Pro Wrestling Noah announced 3 matches for their upcoming Mitsuharu Misawa Memorial Night show on June 13.

    Among the matches is Naomichi Marufuji taking on Akitoshi Saito in a singles match, NJPW’s Yuji Nagata and BJW’s Daisuke Sekimoto taking on Takashi Sugiura and Yoshihiro Takayama, and then a 6 man tag as “Chokibogun” Takeshi Morishima, Maybach Taniguchi, and Hajime Ohara take on the veteran team of Genichiro Tenryu, Shiro Koshinaka, and Yoshinari Ogawa. Sugiura stated that he is indeed looking to exact so much needed revenge following his loss to Nagata back in March and that will also be more fuel for him to show the power of the elbow.

    Takashi Sugiura stated that he has put more and more emphasis on his use of the elbow thanks to Misawa’s teaching, and that he will aim to showcase all his power with the move at the memorial show. Sugiura said that he has taken it upon himself to help protect Noah to its core and he has seen his fair share of ups and downs. He sees a change for the better right now though and he aims to continue riding the ship of Noah in into the future.

    Shiro Koshinaka stated that it has been 5 years since Misawa passing and that he can still not truly believe it. Koshinaka remembers Misawa’s debut back in 1981 and even the time they both spent training in Mexico. Shiro mentioned that it has been about a year since he last competed in the Noah ring, but this match means a lot to him personally and he hopes that a great match, and event, can be offered. Shiro also stated that he has a hip attack with Morishima’s name on it.

    Tenryu also released some comments on being invited to compete on the show. He stated that it is still like yesterday that he and Misawa were still together and in their youth. Though he knew the kind of passion that Misawa brought to the ring and he aims to keep all the hopes and dreams alive. The world of professional wrestling is still bright and he hopes the passion is still alive in the fans.

    Below is the announced card at this time…
