  2. Notes: 3 / 3 days ago 

    [NOAH News] A press conference was held today for the upcoming GHC Heavyweight and Junior championship matches that are scheduled to take place this month.

    The reigning GHC Heavyweight Champion Yuji Nagata was present for the title contract signing, but as usual Maybach was not present as the challenger. Nagata would take a seat, but then Maybach rushed into the room and attacked Nagata. Nagata though seemed more than prepared for an attack as he showcased his own secret weapon with a blue mist (blue justice mist?) and he went straight for Maybach’s eyes. Nagata would then shove Maybach’s face into the contract before Maybach left the room following a dose of his own medicine.

    Nagata then went on with the press conference and stated that following the recent NJPW 2 day tour in Taiwan that he underwent some special training. He stated that he has indeed learned a new “dodge technique” and that it could come in handy if Maybach decides to bring in his favorite weapon. Nagata declared that he will successfully defended the belt in Nagoya on the 20th and he aims to beat the hell out of Maybach in the process.

    The second part of the conference was for the GHC Jr. Heavyweight belt match between the champion Daisuke Harada and the challenger Atsushi Kotoge. This match will be quite fitting as it takes place in Osaka, Japan. As they are both were born in that area and got their starts there. Both have been close friends as well as rivals in their 8+ year career’s. the two look to be aiming to go all out for the match in their hometown, and it could be a match worth checking when these two face off with the belt on the line.

    Below are the announced event cards at this time.

  5. Notes: 2 / 1 week ago 

    [NOAH News] A press conference was held for the upcoming Global Tag League that is set to begin on April 12.

    During the beginnings of the press conference, the reigning GHC Tag Champions in Takeshi Morishima & Maybach Taniguchi appeared and began antagonizing everyone else and screaming. They would then abruptly leave the room. Clearly the champions aimed to boycott the conference.

    Takashi Sugiura would take offense to the champions lack of respect and leaving the room. Sugiura would then call out to the two to return to the room, but they did not and this led Sugi stating that neither have “any pride” as champions. Sugi then apologized for the situation that everyone just witnessed.

    KENTA & Yoshihiro Takayama will be the reigning tournament winners and they both stated that they aspire to win once more this year and go on to claim the GHC Tag belts.

    The tournament is set to begin on April 12 and will run throughout the rest of this month with the final day to be held on April 27. Sine there is no block system this year there will not be a final match. The team with the highest points will be declared the winner, unless there so happens to be a tie for first place.

    Below are the links to the full info on the tournament and April tour.

    [NOAH News] Kana has announced that she will be facing Rabbit Miu at the SEMex show at the Shinjuku FACE on April 16.During the JWP show on April 6, Kana requested a single match against the 18 year old JWP wrestler. This of course is being looked at as a big deal from Kana as she looks to showcase what the women wrestlers can offer to an audience that is primarily only focused on male wrestling. Of course “SEM” is just a sub-brand to NOAH as a whole, but it is also a chance for everyone to really showcase themselves in matches not normally focused upon in the mainstream of things.With the announcement of this match, the full event is now complete and set.
