    [W-1 News] The finals of the WRESTLE-1 Championship tournament are now set as 4 men set forth to be crowned the very first ever champion. KAI, Shuji Kondo, Masakatsu Funaki, and Masayuki Kono will each be vying to be crowned champion.

    KAI and Kondo will face off in the semi-finals with both me showing their own side of confidence heading into the match. KAI has stated that he will prove himself to be the ace of the promotion as he is one step closer to holding the championship. This is his chance to become what he has set out to be. Kondo stated that he has a new sense of a mission in W-1 after reaching this far in the tournament. Kondo acknowledged KAI’s growth since W-1’s inception, but he himself has the same drive to become the first ever champion. Kondo also noted that he would do his best to build the belt up to a high standing.

    Masakatsu Funaki was also present for the press conference, but Masayuki Kono as usual refused to attend. Funaki stated that even though he suffered defeat in his defense of the Zero1 World belt against Kohei Sato that would not deter him from the position he has earned in the W-1 tournament. Funaki noted that he has also seen Kono as like a student of his up until the formation of W-1, in which he was betrayed with the formation of DESPERADO. He stated that he has been challenged by Kono plenty of time throughout the course of this year and that he is confident that he will prevail once more. Funaki also mentioned that he is prepared for any underhanded tactics that might come as well. He also noted on Kono’s recent win over Keiji Mutoh and the use of the Figure 4 and the Shining Wizard and said that imitation does not always ensure victory. That he sees it all as nothing more than tricks from Kono.

    [WRESTLE-1 News] Mutoh officially announced a tournament to crown the very first W-1 Champion, Kaz & Kondo want a rematch for the TNA belts, and the former WNC rookies look to continue an alliance amongst themselves, and more…

    Keiji Mutoh officially announced that WRESTLE-1 will be introducing their very own singles belt soon and that there will be a tournament to crown the very first champion.

    The plan is for 16 wrestlers to compete in a single elimination style tournament over 3 days in September with the championship to determined on October 8th at the Korakuen Hall. The first round matches to be on 9/21 and 9/22, then the quarter-finals on 9/23 in Nagoya, then the semi-final and final to be on 10/8 at Korakuen. The Championship also appears to be open-weight, so the playing field is open to all of the W-1 talent to be “the” Champion.

    Keiji Mutoh stated that he will not be competing in the tournament, but he wants to see the new generation get their time to shine and showcase their true power. He hopes that bringing in their own belt that the competition between the wrestlers will intensify and will give everyone something to strive to achieve.

    Manabu Soya forced his way into the press conference as he wanted to make a direct appeal to compete in the tournament as well. Mutoh stated that he is only planning on the W-1 affiliated talent to be involved, where Soya is “technically” freelance. So Mutoh rejected Soya’s appeal. Soya did not take the rejections as a total shot down as he will “inject the wild” and prove that he is worthy of competing for the belt.
    ————————————————————————-
    Kaz Hayashi and Shuji Kondo (Team 246) announced that the TNA World Tag Champions “The Wolves” Davey Richards & Eddie Edwards will once more be making their ways over to Japan as “the plan” is for the TNA Tag belts to be in defense on the August 31st show at the Korakuen Hall. Of course that is if The Wolves remain as champions by that time.

    Before that match takes place though it was announced that Davey Richards and Eddie Edwards will be competing against Team 246 in a non-title match on August 23rd. The Wolves will be competing on the 8/23, 8/24, 8/26, and then the 8/31 shows of the August tour.

    Look for a separate post in the near future for the full event cards for August.

    ————————————————————————-
    Yusuke Kodama, Jiro “Ikemen” Kuroshio, Koji Doi, and Rionne Fujiwara were also apart of the press conference as they announced they will be continue on with an alliance, following WNC, as “Novus”.
    Which in Latin means “new”. The team is looking to leave their mark with their new path in WRESTLE-1 and they plan to show a whole new side of W-1 when it is all said and done.

    As seen with yesterday’s show, there is a giant split among the original W-1 talent/rookies and the former WNC/ now W-1 rookies. Novus though aims to show that they are all on the same page in leaving their mark in W-1.
    ————————————————————————-
    Then lastly Yasufumi Nakanoue will be undertaking an excursion to Canada to train with Rene Dupree in Canada. Yasu is expected to be back in Japan on August 6th.

    Seiki Yoshioka’s injury earlier this month is still a problem, but he has been cleared enough to compete as long he limits his high-flying. Seiki is current in England as he is training as well as defending his newly won British Light-Heavyweight Championship. He is expected to be back in Japan before the first year anniversary in September.

    Best of luck to the young boys as they look to continue honing their craft and return stronger and better before. [CP/BushidoRX]
