Winner: Kenoh (22:02) via referee stop, KO, following back to back High Kicks.
~ 1st successful title defense.
~ Yuko Miyamoto stepped forward to challenge the champion.
~ After the match, Kiyomiya was not satisfied with the loss after regaining consciousness as he still tried to got aggressive with Kenoh and Takashi sugiura. This led to Kenoh and Sugiura turning on Kiyomiya and keeping the young talent down for the count. The NOAH roster would make the save for Kiyomiya as Go Shiozaki specifically came out and helped get Kiyomiya out of the arena. Though Kiyomiya was adamant about trying to get back into the ring and finish what was started.

 [Update: A quick bit from NOAH hinted that Kiyomiya and Shiozaki may form a partnership in the future, and Kiyomiya is clearly done with his former group with Sugiura and Kenoh. Which should see a change in the event cards as Kiyomiya was scheduled to compete with along with Kenoh and Sugiura on the tour.]

~ Kenoh vs. Miyamoto and 50 Funky Powers vs. Maybach & Nagai has been officially set for the 2/2 show at Korakuen.

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.
