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]

All the events have been announced, except for the final day on August 30th which it is expected to see most of, if not all, of the All Japan title belts in defense.

All Japan Event Cards for July & August 2014
http://puroresuspirit.wordpress.com/2014/06/21/all-japan-event-cards-for-july-august-2014/

[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.

[AJPW News] All Japan announced the full cards for the final 3 shows of this month, each of which featuring all the belts, those of which currently held in All Japan, being defended.

First up, following his win this weekend Takao Omori is now the reigning Triple Crown champion. A title that has took him 22 years to achieve and not one that he aims to put down without giving his all. Now Omori is faced with a quick turn around defense as he faces the “ace” in Suwama on June 29, who has is a multiple time former champion. With the Triple Crown defense also comes Omori getting a shot at the World Tag belts the night before, as he and Akiyama take on Suwama and Joe Doering. Both Omori and Suwama have stated that they aim to become 5 crown champions and they will go at great lengths to make such a thing happen. Omori noted his prior losses to Suwama in the past, but this time things are different. Omori himself is now champion and as noted before he will not just let the belt go without giving his all.

Omori also mentioned the changes that are still in talks of coming in July and stated that it is indeed strange that this comes exactly one year since the “Mutoh/W-1” split. Omori said that this will be a much needed fresh start and that he will continue defending the belt as champion as he hopes the fans will be in support.

Also announced is Atsushi Aoki defending the World Junior belt against Yoshinobu Kanemaru. Aoki noted that Kanemaru will be a tough challenge for himself, but it is a match that he knows that he must face. Kanemaru has been his teacher throughout much of his career and he learned quite a bit from him, but now it is his time to show what he has learned through his own practice. Kanemaru himself looks confident in the upcoming match as he has even declared that when he wins that he wants a rematch against Ultimo Dragon soon after. Aoki stated that he is ready for the challenge and to assert himself as the rightful champion as well as set a standard with his first singles title reign.

Then on June 30, Kotaro Suzuki will be making his next defense of the GAORA TV belt as he takes on Menso~re Oyaji. Kotaro accepted Oyaji’s challenge this past weekend and the chairmen decided to make this match official. Oyaji stated that this match will be special for him as it will be in his home area of Hakodate, Japan. Oyaji has been a regular in All Japan as of late and is ever looking to make himself standout as a top challenger in the promotion. Kotaro though is all about giving anyone a shot at the GAORA TV belt to anyone who deserves it and Oyaji fits that bill. Kotaro hopes that Oyaji will be prepared and he hopes for a solid contest that ultimately boosts the GAORA TV belt.

AJPW News Listing for March 20, 2014

imageAll Japan officially announced the next defense for the Asia Tag belts as Jun Akiyama & Yoshinobu Kanemaru will be defending against the team of Mitsuya Nagai & Takeshi Minamino on March 29 at the Kyoto KBS Hall.

Nagai & Minamino challenged the champions following their 2nd successful defense of the belts on March 18th, and given their win on the night they have been positioned as the more suitable challengers.
The 28 year old Minamino stated that he is grateful for the title match and also mentioned that he has looked up to Akiyama since he was in grade school. Though he is coming into All Japan to make a statement as a junior class wrestler, but he and Nagai will walk out as the 94th generation champions. Minamino also mentioned that he wants to prove himself the right way, and that even though he is on the DK side, he aims at least to observe the rules in the match.
Nagai being a former Asia Tag champion himself, 69th and 77th generation, said nothing more than it is his time to hold the belts once more.
Akiyama & Kanemaru seem to be all about giving chances, but Kanemaru assured that this will be yet another solid defense for their reign. Akiyama stated that that he wants to see Nagai at his fullest and not just another DK cheat tactic. He noted Nagai as a former champion, and he wants to see him compete as a champion. As for the other team that steeped forward in SUSHI & Oyaji, they have not earned another chance for a challenge… yet.

imageAkebono, as the reigning Triple Crown champion, gave his thoughts on the upcoming tournament.

Akebono stated that he has indeed become stronger as the “grand champion” of All Japan and he continues to vow to protect All Japan defense after defense. Akebono declared that he will remain undefeated in the Champion Carnival and then nominated Jun Akiyama as the one whom he would like to face in the final match. He aims to join the list of wrestlers who have won the Champion Carnival while holding the Triple Crown belt. From Jumbo (91), Hansen (92), Misawa (98), Vader (99), Kobashi (00), and lastly with Tenryu (01). Akebono wants to be the first in 13 years to hold this honor, let alone with the new Triple Crown belt.
