~ Pro Wrestling NOAH has officially changed their company name to “NOAH Global Entertainment”. Of course this is all following their acquisition by Estbee Corporation. Estbee appears to not be making too many more changes, outside of the management changes, as the Global League is on-going at this time. I will keep you all updated if and when any details are released to the public.
