PLAY BY PLAY

The Undisputed Era is here!

The NXT Tag Team Champions, Kyle O’Reilly and Roderick Strong–who stands in for the injured Bobby Fish–and the inaugural NXT North American Champion, Adam Cole BAYBAY are back at Full Sail. If they weren’t cocky before, they are now that they’re one man and one title stronger. Cole takes to the mic while fans chant “Undisputed! Undisputed!” They relish in this moment, and all this gold. “This is exactly what happens when you back the Undisputed Era into a corner.” Since first coming here, the Undisputed Era has been held back by NXT to prevent something like this from happening, and yet here we are. Fish speaks, saying “It’s no secret.” WarGames threw them to the wolves, and New Orleans tried the same. “But what you fail to realize” is that the Undisputed Era has been one step ahead. Look no further than these four “dripping in NXT championship gold.”

Strong speaks and fans cheer. He knows everyone wants to know “Why, Roddy, Why?” Strong isn’t the kind to pat himself on the back, that’s what his friends are for. For once, Strong did something for himself. He made the best decision of his career! Sure he could’ve won the titles with Pete Dunne, but Dunne would’ve turned on Strong in the end. Dunne only cares about the WWE UK Championship. But not the Undisputed Era. They take bullets for each other, and in that triple threat tag, Strong had an epiphany: Roddy VS The World, but why fight alone? Now they fight together to take over NXT! Kyle speaks, “We are done being backed into a corner.” It doesn’t matter what management tries, they can’t be stopped! “This is the Era of the Undisputed”, and they’re leaving everyone else in the dust.

Cole speaks again to say they’ll all prove it. Cole will defend his title tonight against Oney Lorcan, “right freakin’ now.” And on his own! He won this title on his own, so he’ll defend it that way. Just like his NXT Tag Team Champions. Honestly, he doesn’t need help beating Lorcan. Cole asks the others to find a seat and a drink to watch Cole at work. Their time is now, they will forever #ShockTheSystem! Cole is confident as ever, but will it cost him against the Boston Brawler in a matter of minutes?

 

NXT North American Championship: Adam Cole VS Oney Lorcan!

While the inaugural champion has confidence to spare, the #Starkiller never backs down from a fight! Can Lorcan shock Cole by taking that belt from him in his first title defense?

Fans duel between Cole and Lorcan. The bell rings and the two circle. Cole’s ribs are still heavily taped from TakeOver: New Orleans. He ties up with Lorcan, and moves to an arm wrench. Fans sing for “Oney~ Oney Oney Oney~” while he reverses and gets the waistlock. Cole hurries to ropes, and Lorcan lets go, so Cole kicks him low and puts him in a headlock. Lorcan powers out but Cole shoulders him down. The ribs slow Cole down but he still runs. Things speed up and Lorcan catches Cole into an abdominal stretch. Cole gets another ropebreak, then gets out of the ring. Fans applaud while Cole walks it off. The ref begins a count and Lorcan waits. Cole rolls into the ring, only to roll right back out.

Lorcan pursues him this time, and sees Cole’s ambush coming. Lorcan shoulders into Cole’s bad ribs, then drags Cole over. He wants to suplex Cole out but Cole resists for good reason. Cole enziguris Lorcan down! Lorcan gets to a corner, and Cole stomps a mudhole into him. Cole backs off at the ref’s count of 3, but Lorcan is still swinging. Cole kicks him down then hammers away. Fans cheer and jeer while Cole snapmares Lorcan. Cole digs his knee into Lorcan’s back while putting on a chinlock. Fans rally and Lorcan feeds off that energy. Lorcan works his way up and out, hitting those bad ribs with body shots. Cole still gets Lorcan up in a fireman’s carry, and hits the ushigoroshi!

Cole doesn’t cover, his ribs bother him too much. He instead catches his breath in a corner while fans cheer hm on. Lorcan stirs and Cole comes back. Lorcan throws body shots, Cole hits back, but Lorcan stands up to give European Uppercuts and chops. He whips Cole to the ropes and catches those bad ribs with a kitchen sink knee. Cole collapses but Lorcan fires up. Lorcan runs for a big EuroUpper, then the running Blockbuster!

Cover, TWO! But Lorcan fires up more while Cole gasps for air. Fans duel while Cole gets to ropes. Lorcan comes up behind and puts him in the waistlock, but Cole holds the ropes. Cole standind switches and shoves Lorcan, but Lorcan comes back with a EuroUpper on the rebound! He keeps going, but Cole is ready with the bicycle boot. Cole then goes to suplex Lorcan, but Lorcan suplexes him first, and hangs him up on the ropes. Cole tumbles to the floor, and fans rally for him. Lorcan climbs up and takes aim, but Kyle returns, a medic in tow!

Strong is also there, and Kyle throws up the X. With the referee focused on Cole and Kyle, Strong drags Lorcan out of the ring, for an apron back suplex!

He puts Lorcan in the ring, then “checks” on Cole, who is now “okay.” Cole sees Lorcan is vulnerable, Last Shot shining wizard!

Cover, Cole wins!

Winner: Cole, by pinfall; still North American Champion

So much for not needing the Undisputed Era’s help in retaining. Cole clutches his title, while Strong and Kyle stomp Lorcan out! The referee rings the bell more and more, but that doesn’t stop them from beating down poor Lorcan. But Danny Burch comes out to rescue his tag team partner!

Burch throws hands on Strong and O’Reilly, and even headbutts. But one SUPERKICK from Cole stops that! He then has Strong and O’Reilly finish off Lorcan and Burch, Strong gives Lorcan the knee strike while Kyle gives Burch the Ax ‘n’ Smash! Fans are a mix of cheers and jeers, but the Undisputed Era only care about having the titles. Will anyone be able to stop them from taking over all of NXT?

 

Heavy Machinery VS Tino Sabbatelli & Riddick Moss!

Tucker Knight & Otis Dozovic were having their tiebreaker tag team match with the Blue Chip Boys a few weeks ago, up until NXT’s newest tag team, The War Raiders, ran all four of these men over. The rubber is given a second chance, can one of these teams finally settle the score?

Tucker starts against Moss at the bell. They tie up, Tucker gets a headlock but Moss powers out. Tucker runs Moss over with a shoulder, Tino comes but Tucker ducks under for Otis to bulldoze Tino down. Tino and Moss both swing on Otis and Tucker, but Heavy Machinery ducks to then run them over with shoulders in stereo! Heavy Machinery flexes but the Blue Chip Boys make this a brawl. Otis throws Tino out while Tucker knees Moss. Tucker whips Moss and throws him with a back drop! He scoops Moss and tags in Otis, and Otis runs to the ropes. Tino returns with a leaping crossbody, but Otis catches him with ease! Tucker and Otis then ram Moss and Tino back against back, then stand on them while posing.

The referee counts, and they step off while the fans chant “Steaks and Weights! Steaks and Weights!” Tucker goes back to the corner while Otis ducks Moss’ forearm to give forearms of his own. Otis whips Moss but Moss holds ropes to club Otis. It only riles Otis up, and Otis throws haymakers. Tino returns only to get punched down, but Moss lifts Otis for a big back suplex! Moss glares at Otis as he throws right hands of his own. The referee warns Moss, but Moss brings Otis up. Tino tags in and Moss whips him in for the big forearm smash. Moss adds the shoulder tackle, Tino covers, TWO. Fans chant “Tino Sucks! Tino Sucks!” but Tino brushes it off to throw body shots on Otis.

Tag to Moss for another whip, but Otis puts Tino on the apron. Otis side steps Moss, so that shoulder tackle sends Tino flying into barriers! Otis tags in Tucker and Tucker rallies on Moss. Tucker even hits Moss with a dropkick! Tucker throws hands then whips Moss to a corner, only to run into Moss’ boot. Moss crawls towards Tino, but Tino leaves Moss high and dry!?

Moss can’t believe Tino is ditching him! But Tucker still hits Moss with a corner splash and trapped arm overhead suplex. Tucker gives Moss another corner splash and Otis tags in. Otis picks up Moss and Tucker runs, for the Compacter!

Cover, Heavy Machinery wins!

Winners: Heavy Machinery (Tucker & Otis), Otis pinning

One way or another, this rivalry ends. Tino dumped Moss but Heavy Machinery crushed him. Will this lead to big things for the big powerhouse duo? And will Moss get payback on the selfish Sabbatelli?

Heavy Machinery speaks.

Tucker calls out the War Raiders! “You think you can attack us from behind and make a name for yourselves?” Heavy Machinery is going to raid every buffet to take all the steaks, and raid all the gyms to lift all the weights. Fans agree, chanting “Steaks and Weights!” But Tucker & Otis want to know if War Raiders are man enough to stand face to face with them. Heavy Machinery is coming for war! Will Hanson & Rowe be ready to wage war with these bulldozers?

 

The Queen of Spades reigns with an iron fist.

The problem is, it only means the rest of the NXT Women’s Division looks to rebel against her. SAnitY’s Nikki Cross still wants the NXT Women’s Championship by any means necessary, while Aliyah has nothing nice to say about Shayna Baszler. If only she had a famous friend to ride the coattails of. The Pirate Princess is even with Shayna at 1-1, which means she knows the key to defeating. “It’s a secret.”

Dakota Kai is interviewed in regards to Shayna Baszler.

The Captain of Team Kick already knows how cruel Shayna can be, given her arm injury. And when it comes to the most recent incident involving the sadistic submission sorceress, Dakota does not feel comfortable talking about it. She’d rather just forget about it. And to make matters worse, Bully Baszler walks in.

The NXT Women’s Champion dares Dakota to look her in the eye. And when Dakota does, Baszler mocks Dakota’s sacrifices to live the dream. Because the reality is, a women’s division run by Shayna is Dakota’s nightmare. Baszler leaves, and Dakota is still shaken. Can Dakota, or anyone, work up the courage to put Shayna in her place?

 

Three more women of NXT speak up against Shayna Baszler.

Lacey Evans has been through worse than “a bully with a bad attitude.” She vows to be the legitimate role model that is the face of NXT. Vanessa Borne thinks she can beat Shayna, and when she gets the chance, she’ll get the title. Mrs. Wrestling, Candice LeRae, has what Shayna doesn’t have: heart. Shayna may have counters for submissions, but she doesn’t have a counter for Candice. Who will be the first woman to go toe to toe with the Queen of Spades for the title?

 

NXT Championship: Aleister Black VS Johnny Gargano!

The saying goes, “Ask and you shall receive.” Johnny Freakin’ Wrestling asked for another chance at the title, and the Dutch Destroyer honored his request. At the same time, Gargano is the only man to pin Aleister, albeit in a Fatal 4 Way. Can Gargano do the same now that it’s 1v1? Or will he simply #FadeToBlack?

But before the champion appears, the Psycho Killer does! And he ambushes Gargano all over again!

Tommaso Ciampa hammers away on Gargano at the ramp! He won’t let go of the grudge between him and his former friend! He drags Gargano from the ramp and throws him into the announce desk! Mauro, Percy and Nigel clear out as Ciampa storms over. Ciampa clears the top of the desk, then drags Gargano atop it. He clubs away on Gargano before climbing up to join him. He drags Gargano up, and shouts, “You think I’m done?!” Ciampa vows Gargano will never be rid of him! Ciampa lifts Gargano, preparing a reverse neckbreaker, but Gargano fights out! Gargano fights back, and SUPERKICKS Ciampa! Ciampa sits down, then hurries away from the desk. But that doesn’t stop Gargano, he LEAPS at Ciampa!

Gargano topples Ciampa and then hammers away with both hands. Fans cheer for “Johnny Wrestling!” as he bounces Ciampa’s head off the ramp. Ciampa shoves Gargano away but Gargano rushes right back. Gargano throws more haymakers on Ciampa, but Ciampa stops him with a low blow kick! Ciampa checks his eye while Gargano gasps for air. Ciampa shoves Gargano away, but the fans troll Ciampa with “You Tapped Out! You Tapped Out!” He doesn’t care, he has Gargano vulnerable on stage. Ciampa takes aim, and uses the Psycho Knee to ram Gargano’s head into the LED wall!

Referees check on Gargano while telling Ciampa to leave. Ciampa takes his time standing up, and walks towards the back, only to go back for more! He drags Gargano up, and jumps off the stage with an Air Raid!!

Both Ciampa and Gargano crash into the spare tables on the side, covered in spare production equipment! Ciampa doesn’t care that his head hurts, so long as as he leaves Gargano in the wreckage. He finally leaves Gargano, and Candice comes out to check on her husband. Referees call for medics while Ciampa stares down from the stage. Fans boo and jeer the Psycho Killer while medics carefully pull Gargano from the debris. They also chant “Johnny Wrestling!” in support, but the damage is done. Gargano groans in pain while the medics swiftly but carefully put him on the backboard. Candice is there to comfort and calm Gargano while the medics put the neck brace on him. They strap Gargano into the board and bring the stretcher over.

The medics carefully lift Gargano up and set him on, fans applauding the fact Gargano is still conscious and breathing. Candice holds Gargano’s hand while the stretcher is wheeled to the back. They make it backstage and Candice tells Gargano to relax. Gargano won’t stop fidgeting as he passes by the other NXT superstars. Kassius Ohno also assures Gargano he’ll be okay as the stretcher is turned around to go head first. Aleister Black watches the stretcher be loaded into the ambulance.

Candice rides with Gargano in the back. The ambulance pulls out of Full Sail, and Ciampa, atop a production truck, waves good-bye. Has the Psycho Killer finally gotten rid of Gargano for good?

Aleister Black still goes to the ring.

The Embodiment of the End won’t be having an NXT Championship match with Johnny Wrestling tonight, but he grabs a mic to speak. “Tommaso Ciampa, by eliminating my competition–” But wait! The champion is interrupted by SAnitY!

Eric Young leads Alexander Wolfe and Killian Dain down to the ring, where they flank Aleister on two sides. Eric speaks, saying that “Johnny Gargano provided hope. Chaos took away that hope tonight.” And out of the chaos, SAnitY will find greatness. So then SAnitY is looking for the title? Yes? “Then let’s do this!” Fans like the sound of that!

Aleister Black VS Eric Young w/ SAnitY!

The bell rings and this is official, but not for the title. Will the erratic Eric capitalize on a chaotic situation? Or will Aleister take his frustrations towards Ciampa out on him?

Aleister and Eric circle, then tie up. Eric wrenches the arm and brings Aleister to his knees. Aleister rolls and reverses the wristlock, then ducks the clothesline to waistlock and roll Eric to the mat. Eric stands up and grabs ropes for the break. Eric muddies the break with a back elbow, then picks the leg to go after Aleister’s head and shoulder. Aleister reaches and flails while fans rally for him. Aleister stands up and rolls Eric, ONE, and Aleister runs, only to run into Eric’s back elbow! Eric covers, ONE, so he stomps and drops elbows on the champ. Cover again, TWO, but Eric runs, only to run into Aleister’s sleeper hold! Eric powers out and shoves Aleister, but Aleister stops his momentum to sweep Eric’s legs!

Eric rolls out of the ring but Aleister runs, only to springboard back for the cross leg landing. Fans applaud while Eric grins. SAnitY regroups, and a ring count begins. Eric returns to the ring, then suddenly kicks at Aleister, but Aleister leans back to kip-up! Aleister arm-drags Eric, then puts him in an armlock. Eric endures as Aleister pulls on the shoulder. Eric stands up and pushes Aleister to ropes to then ram in a shoulder and throw forearms. He lifts Aleister but Aleister slips, only for Eric to hit him with another back elbow. Eric throws a punch but Aleister traps that arm, to then ram in a knee into Eric’s ribs. Aleister gives more strikes, topping it off with the knee strike!

Fans applaud as Aleister hoists Eric to the top rope. Big Damo distracts the ref while Wolfe rushes Aleister, but Aleister elbows him away. However, this gives Eric the opening to grab Aleister for the hangman’s dragon sleeper!

The referee catches this, and Eric lets go at the count of 4. Eric then jumps to drop an ax handle on Aleister. Cover, TWO! Eric double ax handles away on Aleister then covers again, TWO! Fans rally for Aleister while Eric drags him up, for the stiff neckbreaker. Cover, TWO, and now Eric grows frustrated. He drags Aleister up for a chinbar, but fans build to a rally. Aleister fights up and out, but runs into a back drop! Cover, TWO, but Eric puts Aleister right into a chinlock clutch. He stretches Aleister back while he fans rally again. Aleister stands up again but Eric clubs him back down. Eric runs, but into Aleister’s boot! Aleister runs, Eric back drops him but Aleister sunset flips to a cover, TWO! Eric clobbers Aleister with a haymaker! But Aleister rebounds off the ropes for the bicycle knee!

Both men go down but the fans applaud. The fans build back to a rally while SAnitY is angry and concerned. Eric and Aleister stir as a ten count begins. It reaches 5 before either man stands. Eric walks over but Aleister fires off punches first. Aleister bobs and weaves, and counters with several kicks to then rally with elbows. Aleister sweeps the legs, runs to strike with another knee! The champion is all fired up, and runs corner to corner to hit Eric with a forearm smash. He whips Eric out and back into the corner, to then springboard for the Quebrada!

Cover, TWO! Aleister won’t slow down, though. He brings Eric up but Eric powers him to a corner. Eric runs back in but Aleister goes up and over, then runs to roll off Eric’s back. Aleister tilt-o-whirls to catch Eric in a combination crucifix-octopus stretch!

Eric endures the unique hold, and pops out to hoist Aleister up for a Death Valley Driver!

Cover, TWO! And Eric can’t believe it! He prepares his elbow and climbs up top. Aleister stirs, and revives to club Eric. Eric hits back but Aleister climbs up to brawl with him. Eric punches Aleister off, but Aleister ducks under the missile dropkick. Aleister then side steps Eric to send him into the corner, but Eric tumbles to the apron. Eric sees Aleister coming and shoulders back in. He then slides under and runs back over, into BLACK MASS!!

Cover, Aleister wins!

Winner: Aleister, by pinfall

But the flood gates open as Wolfe & Dain rush the ring! Aleister ducks Wolfe to give him Black Mass! Big Damo scoops Aleister, but Aleister slips out, for a third Black Mass! The Dutch Destroyer pulls off a hat trick to wreck the wild trio! It wasn’t the match he wanted, but Aleister still stands tall. Will Aleister get revenge on Ciampa for what he did to Gargano? Will Gargano be able to return to do it himself? Or will Mr. Blackheart leave them both down and out to finally have his moment?

 


 

My Thoughts:

A great episode of NXT and again, almost a full hour. The Undisputed Era gives a great opening promo, each of them on point with their lines. Oddly enough, Strong had a point about Pete Dunne tending to be a backstabber. That and his frustrations over losing seem to be why he turned. The swerve on Cole not wanting/needing help from the others was actually pretty smart, too. Cole knows his ribs are still banged up, and did look to be in trouble, so in kayfabe, Kyle and Strong were likely waiting for the first moment Cole ended up outside of the ring. Dunne returns next week to take on Strong as he promised, this could lead to another WWE UK Championship match to at least tease the possibility the Undisputed Era members all having titles.

The tiebreaker of Heavy Machinery VS Sabbatelli & Moss was pretty good as a match, and better as setting up story. Tucker & Otis want revenge on Hanson & Rowe, that’ll be a fun match with all four big men barreling into each other. Moss and Tino can themselves move into a program, and I’d imagine with Tino being the traitor (and with fans always chanting “Tino Sucks!”) Moss makes the turn to Face. Depending on who Moss becomes without Tino, he could rise up in the ranks and–after a lot of big names clear out–be a contender for the North American Championship.

The booking of the NXT Women’s Division has been brilliant. Shayna plays the bully so well, and even Dakota plays scared victim well. The promos from the other women were great, but honestly, of the six that spoke, only Nikki Cross or Kairi Sane have even been booked as challenges for Shayna. Candice LeRae is still new to being on NXT TV, so she can make a case for herself, but Lacey, Vanessa and Aliyah haven’t really gained much ground in the Division. Then the entire final segment was great, even with Ciampa demolishing Gargano. This extends their story probably to the next TakeOver, for an even more savage blow-off that brings them both to the main roster. Aleister gives SAnitY their good-bye moment, as well as a great match with Eric Young. Aleister VS Ciampa makes for a great feud while Gargano “recovers”, maybe even for the title.

My Score: 8.5/10

Hopefully the live stream peaked some extra interest in NOAH! So for everyone new or old that needs to catch up, Hisame’s Newsletters are the perfect one stop shop!

CURRENT TOUR RECAP

After the excitement of Hakata Stalene, NOAH headed back out to Osaka, and then further into the provinces.

At Osaka World Pavilion, Hi69 finished the match by doing the Stuka Splash on Yoshinari Ogawa, after it Ogawa seemed to be struggling a bit and had to be helped up and out of the ring, although eventually he was well enough to walk unaided.

But when Hi69 & Quiet Storm had their first singles match ever on the 20th March at Toyonaka, after the match the ring was stormed by Stinger members Yoshinari Ogawa and Kotaro Suzuki, who beat down Hi69 in revenge. It is unusual to see this happen in NOAH, although Kotaro Suzuki is capable of it (and people getting jumped does happen), it is very rare to see Yoshinari Ogawa do it. Minoru Tanaka came to the rescue.

Hi69 says he will make weight for the tag challenge (“I will get on the scales any time. However, please tell me the day before“), and has started a weight loss diary on his

Twitter, although he did admit to eating lots of meat and going up to 105.

Minoru Tanaka and Hi69 had their own post match beat down on Stinger on the 21st in Kanazawa.

KAZMA SAKAMOTO and Takashi Sugiura teamed together for the first time before they enter Global Tag League together, they seemed to get on pretty well, with KAZMA later paying tribute to Sugiura as “a symbol of NOAH’s strength”.

Naomichi Marufuji, who says he is searching for a purpose, had somewhat of a comedy match in Toyonaka with disco poses being pulled and kicking Masao Inoue in the face for messing around, but a new threat appears to be emerging from the next generation of Junior wrestlers regarding their own status being less than the heavyweights, although he didn’t make too much of a comment about it at the time, it does look like Daisuke Harada took on board Minoru Tanaka’s comments about the GHC Junior being the main event. Marufuji in a post match interview said he could see their hostility building to something, but he didn’t know yet.

A huge rivalry is brewing for Global Tag League 2019 between Kenoh & Kaito Kiyomiya and AXIZ (Katsuhiko Nakajima & Go Shiozaki), which started in Toyonaka and was heralded by a vicious kick battle between Kenoh and Nakajima. After the match, the two teams faced off, with Nakajima grinning evilly. Earlier on the tour, Marufuji (a veteran) was put in the unenviable position of teaming with them (the younger generation who are opposed to him), and at the end of a match which according to one attendee had a “sense of distance between them”, got kicked in the head by Nakajima after shaking hands with him.

Then Shiozaki lariated him. 

In Kanazawa after the match (whereby Nakajima grinned in Kenoh’s face), Kiyomiya and Kenoh declared AXIZ to be a “wanted” tag-team.

Yoshiki Inamura won his second victory over Kinya Okada, whom he now refers to as “my rival”. He had teamed with his teacher, Masa Kitamiya, who had a big smile on his face and did genuinely seem pleased with his trainees progress. After three days of being chopped and kicked his chest was….

Maybach Taniguchi is still continuing in his monster mode, and refuses to change. His Sasumata is still being bought to the ring and used as a weapon, he is still attacking the ref after matches, speaking in grunts, and even Akitoshi Saito who seemed to be attempting to rehabilitate him, has given up. In Kanazawa they tagged together, but it all fell apart when they accidentally knocked each other down, got into an argument and then Taniguchi was defeated by the Funky Buster Bomb. Taniguchi stood in the ring as he and Saito pointed at each other threateningly as Saito left the ring. 

Takashi Sugiura said that this would do no him no good in the end.

NOAH will celebrate the final night of “Spring Navigation 2019” at Korakuen Hall in Tokyo on Friday March 29th.

NEWS

Global Tag League 2019

Global Tag League will return on the 6th April 2019, with the first night being held at Edion Arena Osaka on Saturday 6th April and finishing on 4th May at Korakuen Hall.
This years teams are as follows:

Katsuhiko Nakajima & Go Shiozaki (GHC Heavyweight Tag champions)
Kaito Kiyomiya & Kenoh
Mohammed Yone & Quiet Storm
Maybach Taniguchi & Yuji Hino
Takashi Sugiura & KAZMA SAKAMOTO
Atsushi Kotoge & Mitsuya Nagai
Akitoshi Saito & Masao Inoue
Masa Kitamiya & Yoshiki Inamura.

Due to being defeated by Kaito Kiyomiya for the GHC Heavyweight title, Naomichi Marufuji has said that he will not enter the league this year. However, there is a possibility that he may enter in the end, and probably with a surprise partner. Unspoken speculation has it that since KENTA’s 90 day release clause is up round about the time Global Tag League starts, it may well be KENTA who he enters with.

Personally, I think it is far more likely that Marufuji will enter with Masaaki Mochizuki.

KAZMA says he fears the team of Yuji Hino and Maybach Taniguchi, as Hino knows how to work Taniguchi, however “that dick is a one-man show.”

Atsushi Kotoge has named the team of himself and Mitsuya Nagai “The Revolutionary Cloak Army”

Akitoshi Saito and Masao Inoue were a comedy team last year, with Saito screwing over Inoue, and Inoue not really realizing as Saito kept denying it.

The big rivalry for Global Tag League 2019 this year is Kenoh & Kiyomiya vs AXIZ.

Atsushi Kotoge returns
Atsushi Kotoge will make his return in his hometown of Osaka on the 6th April. Katsuhiko Nakajima took the opportunity to take a shot at Kenoh by looking at the match (“The Revolutionary Cloak Army” vs Kenoh and Kiyomiya) to say, “you are in the opening match” (full card hasn’t been announced yet).

CURRENT CHAMPIONS

TOUR TIDBITS
~ Hitoshi Kumano says he wants to challenge for the singles belt
~ Daisuke Harada was cheered on by his nephew in Osaka
~ Kenoh has been noted to be smiling a lot more now he is teaming with Kiyomiya; but don’t let this fool you. Kenoh is still after the GHC Heavyweight, Kiyomiya knows this and has said that they will never properly be friends. Despite the brotherly feeling between them, there is still a sense of rivalry underneath.
~ Katsuhiko Nakajima’ reaction to Yoshiki Inamura teaming with Masa Kitamiya was, “what’s his name? I don’t remember, he didn’t leave much of an impression
~ Kaito Kiyomiya was again on the cover of “Weekly Pro”, he’s only twenty-two, but has already been on the cover about three or four times.
~ Takashi Sugiura imitated KAZMA SAKAMOTO’S scream
~ Katsuhiko Nakajima told a bald reporter that his head was “twinkling”.
~ After the three day in a row tour (and a week away from home), Hitoshi Kumano returned to his “children” (his French Bulldogs), and Takashi Sugiura returned home to his own dog, who wanted to immediately go outside, despite the fact it was 1.30am. He took it for a walk the next day.
~ Despite saying that he didn’t have to call Kenoh “Kenoh-san” anymore, this momentary lapse in manners is over, and Kiyomiya has gone back to calling him just that.

Arena Puebla

Sonic, Rey Samuray, and Astro vs Police Man, Fuerza Chicana, and Sombra Diabolika
