News Listing for June 9, 2017


All Japan announced that two European wrestlers will be competing for the promotion in July and August.

First up is Massimo who is an Italian born wrestler that currently resides out of Scotland. He boasts a 196cm tall frame and has competed in Canada, USA, and even previously in Japan for ZERO1. He was noted to be coming into the promotion in July.

Then in August Danny Jones from Dragon Pro Wrestling out of Wales will be competing for the promotion. He was noted as being 190cm tall and noted for his agility and wide-range of maneuvers which should even be familiar to a Japanese audience.

It has been a while since All Japan has opened their doors for new international talent to compete, but it appears they have finally reached a stable position to test out broader options. Best of luck to the two men.

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.
