NOAH NEWS

The event cards were updated for July’s Junior Tag League tour as well as two title defenses announced as well.

The first of which will take place on July 28th at the Korakuen Hall, as Katsuhiko Nakajima and Masa Kitamiya defend the GHC Tag belts against the veteran team of  Naomichi Marufuji and Akitoshi Saito. The match is coming about after Saito had picked up a direct singles and tag win over Kitamiya. Saito has seen much success as a tag champion in the promotion though he has not been crowned a champion in over 5 years. With the current generation struggle roaring ahead this could be a turning point for the veterans to either take further control or for the new generation to maintain themselves as fighting champions.

Then Takashi Sugiura will defend the GHC Heavy belt against Go Shiozaki on August 18th in Kawasaki. Sugiura has already begun to set the bar for another strong run as champion, though Shiozaki, as the leader of the new generation army, looks to reclaim the belt and build the new generation as the leaders that they need to be right now. Sugiura has declared that he is far from ready to see his reign finish so soon and he will be prepared to defend it to no ends.

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.
