    [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.

He mentioned that he is still quite “inexperienced with the English language”, but it is currently his “biggest hard work in progress”.As for his name, KENTA mentioned that is “solely in the WWE Headquarters hands.” He said that there is a “possibility” that his ring name will be changed, but stated with a smile that “any number of names with do”. Even something like a “TANAKA or TOYOTA” which he mentioned himself. He is prepared for anything. He also mentioned that he knows he will have to adjust his in-ring style and adapt to the changes. But that he will do his very best.He also mentioned the names of Daniel Bryan (Bryan Danielson) and Cesaro (Claudio Castagnoli) who have been in Japan and who have reached the top front of the WWE. He said that it it is reassuring to himself that there are talent that he personally knows in the WWE. He also mentioned John Cena and Rey Mysterio as wrestlers that the entire world knows, but at this time he has little expectations of being on that same level, he said with a laugh. He then said that WWE is the top of the wrestling organizations in the world and that it has been his dream to stand on the big stage, if just at least once in his life. He currently does not know what to expect now that the doors are open, but he will do his best from day one.

  6. Notes: 3 / 2 weeks ago 

    [NOAH News] Pro Wrestling Noah announced two upcoming GHC title matches as well as the event cards for their upcoming Jr. Tag League which begins this month.

    Naomichi Marufuji announced that his first defense of the GHC Heavyweight belt will be against Katsuhiko Nakajima this month on July 21st at the Hakata StarLanes. Marufuji is looking to begin his journey as the GHC Heavyweight Champion by showcasing his complete abilities as the “King of Offense”. Marufuji knows that there is a lot to carry by being the GHC champion and he believes he is in the proper frame of mind to be the worthy champion. Nakajima though will be a huge test as he has proven to be a formidable foe in the past and is building his own path to being a future champion in his own right. Nakajima recently holds a victory over Kensuke Sasaki and not many can claim that right. Nakajima could very well prove to be challenge, but a challenge he is willing to accept. He is aware that Nakajima will be out to prove himself, but Marufuji as well will be looking to do the same.

    Noah also announced that the GHC Heayweight Tag belts will be defended on August 2nd at the Differ Ariake. As the reigning champions “Dangan Yankees” Takashi Sugiura and Masato Tanaka will be defending against “Muhammed Bomber” Muhammed Yone & Daisuke Ikeda.

    Then Noah announced the split block as well as the matches for their upcoming Jr. Tag League which begins on July 18th and runs until August 2nd.

  12. Notes: 5 / 1 month ago 

    [NOAH News] Pro Wrestling Noah announced the full card for the upcoming Ariake Colosseum show on July 5.

    All the title matches have been previously announced, but the remaining matches are sure to add even more interesting dynamic to the mix. Two “special” matches have been added to the second half of the show. The first of which will see Maybach Taniguchi going up against BJW Strong’s Daisuke Sekimoto in their first ever singles confrontation.

    Then the second will be in tag match form as Akitoshi Saito, who recently rejoined Noah, will be teaming with Katsuhiko Nakajima to take on the NJPW team of Hirooki Goto & Katsuyori Shibata. Shibata is no stranger to appearing in Noah, but this time his recent tag partner in Goto is coming along with him. It should be safe to assume that this match will be very heavy hitting as each are known for their own style of kicks.

    Below is the announced event card in full…

    —————————————————————————————

    Then following today’s “Misawa Memorial Show” Akitoshi Saito is now once more a wrestler for Pro Wrestling Noah.

    Saito has been a freelance wrestler for roughly 2 and a half years, but after his match in today’s main event Marufuji offered him the invitation to once more join the promotion. Saito acknowledged Maru’s words by saying that “My heart has always been with Noah, I will fight in Noah”.

    Pro Wrestling Noah’s President Akira Taue then issued a small press release stating that Saito is indeed affiliated under Noah once more as of June 13th.
