[W-1 News] It was announced that a tournament will be held for the young talent connected to W-1 to earn a singles match against Keiji Mutoh. Also Yusuke Kodama will be going overseas for an indefinite expedition.

Kodama stated that he will be going to Canada for 3 months (I would assume under Rene Dupree) and then he plans to go to American for as long as possible. He stated that it his intention to one day come back to Japan and to be a whole different Yusuke Kodama. To be stronger, bigger, and more skilled. His final match is scheduled to take place on 5/5 before he heads to Canada.

About BushidoRX

I have been following Japanese Pro Wrestling for 20 years now and I have also been doing some form of covering it either in news or results for nearly 15 years as well. I got my start in promotions like AJPW, NJPW, FMW and Michinoku Pro. With All Japan being my go to promotion till this very day. Throughout the years I have followed All Japan more closely than any of the others out there, and thus I have taken it upon myself to keep people informed with what is happening all throughout sport in Japan. If it does not appear on the news feed I either do not follow it closely enough to relate the information or it just not my go to promotion in general. Follow Puroresu Spirit, which is my personal site, as I do my best to keep you all informed with what is happening in the land of the rising sun.
