AJPW NEWS

~ Earlier in the day it was announced that Jun Akiyama will be defending the GAORA TV belt against Minoru Tanaka on September 19.
~ Then Jun Akiyama and Takao Omori will be receiving the next World Tag Championship challenge against Strong BJ on October 21 in Yokohama. This will also mark a joint 25th anniversary show for the two veterans.
Then Naoya Nomura & Yuma Aoyagi also made a direct appeal to Director Omori for a chance at the Asia Tag belts.

A press conference was held for the upcoming “Oudou Tournament” at the Tokyo Sky Tree Town, J: COM Wonder Studio.

The tournament is set to begin on September 12 at the Korakuen Hall, with 16 wrestlers competing in the single elimination bracket leading to the finals on September 23 in Sendai. 13 of the scheduled wrestlers were present today including last years winner Suwama, who aims to be the first consecutive victor of this tournament. Though he addressed the loss to Kojima at the Ryogoku show and the assault by Joe Doering before hand. In which Doering was not present today due to his further boycott of pretty much everything though he did send a video to the office which was played for the media in attendance. Which can be summed up that Doering looks to continue his current dominance and become the Triple Crown Champion once again. Suwama stated that he is indeed looking for revenge against Doering as he hopes to even see it potentially happen in this tournament. Which could happen in the semi-finals.

The current reigning Triple Crown Champion in Kento Miyahara though stated that he aims to finally win the tournament this year. Currently no Triple Crown champion has managed to go on to win the tournament, but Miyahara aims to be the first to do so. Then for someone who is making their very first appearance ever in All Japan, Yoshitatsu stated that he really appreciates the opportunity that has been offered to him and that he still aims to prove himself following the neck injury that he is still trying to overcome. He mentioned that he feels he is in a perfect condition now and looks forward to his first round match against a fellow former WWE superstar in TAJIRI. He is excited for the chance of competing against some new talent and the chance to prove himself once more.

The first part of the Oudou Tournament matches will be taking place on September 12 with the next taking place on the 16th.
