on

New Japan’s Tag League not interest you? Don’t worry, Mathew and All Japan bring you the REAL World Tag League! Some Japanese big names along with an American tag team making their debut in Japan.





Welcome back to AJPW and we’re now gonna cover their Real World Tag League and luckily I can do this one by myself due to it being only one block.

For this tournament, there will be 11 teams and 19 shows, so let’s take a look at our participants down below and see what we’re working with.

  • Jun Akiyama & Daisuke Sekimoto
  • Kento Miyahara & Yoshitatsu
  • Naoya Nomura & Yuma Aoyagi
  • Get Wild (Takao Omori & Manabu Soya)
  • Violent Giants (Suwama & Shuji Ishikawa)
  • The End (Odinson & Parrow)
  • TAJIRI & Gianni Valletta
  • Joe Doering & Dylan James
  • Jake Lee & Ryouji Sai
  • The Big Guns (Zeus & The Bodyguard)
  • KAI & Kengo Mashimo

Seeing these teams here, we got a solid line-up and it already looks a thousand times better than New Japan’s World Tag League. Anyway, for this tournament, I will be going with Violent Giants to get the win while being the Tag Team Champions. I’ll be dividing it up by parts and will do it by how many matches are on each show.

Who will win the tournament? Well, let’s find out and…dive right in.

Real World Tag League 2018 Match
Naoya Nomura & Yuma Aoyagi vs. Odinson & Parrow

Review: Our first match in the tournament takes place as our All Asia Tag Team Champions, Naoya Nomura and Yuma Aoyagi take on a tag team called The End which consists of two Evolve wrestlers, Odinson and Parrow. I don’t know much about Odinson and Parrow due to not watching a lot of Evolve but they look like a promising pair and be good exposure for them to take part in this tournament. So which of these two teams will win the first match to kick this tournament off?

After seeing Odinson and Parrow for the first time today, they looked pretty strong in this bout as they pretty much destroyed Nomura and Yuma in this match soon as the bell rang to show off their power in the match, which they did. After a couple of minutes of The End destroying their opponents, Yuma and Nomura would start to fight back in the match to get some momentum from the crowd but that would deflate pretty quickly with Odinson Pouncing Nomura and gets him to the outside as the two would hit a Doomsday Device onto Yuma with Odinson hitting a European Uppercut and pinning Yuma for the victory in under five minutes. These two looked very impressive and looking forward to seeing how they’ll fair with the rest of the tournament.

Real World Tag League 2018 Match
Manabu Soya & Takao Omori vs. The Bodyguard & Zeus

Review: Our next match-up takes place with The Bodyguard and former Triple Crown Champion, Zeus teaming up once again as they take on Get Wild which consists of Takao Omori and former Wrestle-1 Champion, Manabu Soya. It’s good to see Manabu doing a tag league and surprised he’s not teaming up with AKIRA for this one. Since Zeus lost his big title, will he be able to get a consolation prize with this match right here?

This match was definitely a powerhouse type of match since that’s what all four of these men are known for here, so it was pretty much to see which of them were stronger. Manabu is usually used for the tag league whenever he comes over like last year, but I feel like if he did stick around again that he could maybe have a better shot at maybe being the Triple Crown Champion or maybe just get some title matches under his belt. Manabu did pair off fairly well with Bodyguard here, even if Bodyguard did somehow mess up taking a Bulldog in the match, but it’s Bodyguard so it’s expected. Zeus was still able to bounce back despite not being champion anymore and showed he’s still at the top of his game. The match was solid enough to get by with Big Guns proving why they’re one of the top teams in the company while Manabu and Takao were able to hold off on their own in this match to give them a run for their money. Seeing Manabu and Bodyguard for the majority of the match made me wanna see them have a one on one match together down the road since I fell like it could be a solid bout if done right. Manabu would give Bodyguard a Wild Bomber to get the pinfall victory and a big first win!

Real World Tag League 2018 Match
Daisuke Sekimoto & Jun Akiyama vs. KAI & Kengo Mashimo

Review: It looks like Jun Akiyama is cleared for action as he takes part in this tournament teaming up with Daisuke Sekimoto and the two will take on KAI and Kengo Mashimo. KAI and Kengo were both unable to defeat the Violent Giants to take the titles away from them, but they could get some redemption if they do win this tournament right here and even beat them in the league once they cross paths again. Which team will win?

I really do enjoy the pairing of KAI and Kengo, and I know I’ve said it before in the last AJPW article I did but they still work together with the humor dynamic with KAI trying to get Kengo to notice him while he’s just ignoring that. KAI and Daisuke would start the match off and I thought it was a ton of fun to see with their sequences together in the ring with Daisuke getting the early advantage in the match. I’m kinda surprised Daisuke was able to do the tournament but I should also not be surprised at the same time since Uncle Jun has been delivering with special guests in these tournaments much like how he has Shingo Takagi and Naomichi Marufuji for their Champions Carnival and now he was able to get Daisuke to take part in this tournament and even have Jun be his partner nonetheless.

I really enjoyed this match since both teams had a really nice dynamic together no matter the pairing involved in the ring. Jun would also be smart by working on Kengo’s injured shoulder with his knee strikes to do some damage to it and weaken his offense slightly. During the match, Jun would attempt a knee to the face in which KAI moves out of the way as both him and Kengo went to attack him down until Kengo held Jun in place until KAI went for a Superkick and accidentally hits Kengo once Jun ducked out of the way, leading to Daisuke hitting the both of them with a Double Lariat. Kengo would attempt a kick out his own as the match progressed and would accidentally kick KAI down and instead of checking up on him, he would focus on the match instead as Daisuke would pick Kengo up and tackle him right onto KAI who was on the turnbuckle. Jun would attempt to hit the Wrist-Clutch Suplex onto KAI as he would hold his ground but Daisuke would come up behind them to hit a German Suplex on Jun while he was holding onto the clutch to slam KAI down. Jun would pick KAI up right away and hits the Wrist-Clutch Suplex without the assistance this time and would pick up the win.

Real World Tag League 2018 Match
Shuji Ishikawa & Suwama vs. Kento Miyahara & Yoshitatsu

Review: Our main event for this show is our current World Tag Team Champions, The Violent Giants taking on Yoshitatsu and current Triple Crown Champion, Kento Miyahara. These two teams are no strangers to each other as they both had their fair share of battles together for the titles where Kento and Yoshi defeated them for the titles back in February of this year. Can Kento and Yoshi beat them again or will the Violent Giants come out on top?

Oh good. Suwama and Shuji were able to change their attire up a little bit to look more like a tag team and it looks pretty good to me. I liked seeing Suwama and Yoshi starting us off here due to the history that these two had together and usually give us something interesting to watch whenever they’re in the ring together. Once Kento and Shuji were in the ring, the crowd really started to get into it a bit more since these two would always have great matches together. Kento was able to do his little turnbuckle post while taunting the camera until the referee pulled his hair to break it up and I’ll never get tired of that spot, just works so well together.

The match was slow paced at the beginning of the match but that’s a good thing when it comes to their matches due to the fact that they know when to hit the big moves to make the match more memorable and just telling us a story in the ring as the match would keep progressing forward. Violent Giants still continue to prove why they’re the best tag team currently in Japan right now with the chemistry the two share together in the ring and just their similar styles give us something a lot more dangerous when paired off together and both Kento and Yoshi would feel the full effect of this strength here. Violent Giants would just hit their power moves with the knees to the face, Backdrop Drivers, and just killing Yoshitatsu but Kento would break the hold.

Yoshitatsu would attempt to apply the Koji Clutch on the first time and was unable to make him tap out. Kento would rally Yoshi up to try and get the win over the Violent Giants as Yoshi hits the Codebreaker of Jericho onto Suwama and Kento tops it off with a German Suplex Hold as it looks like this could be it, but Shuji would break the pin before he could get a three-count. Yoshi was now able to get the Koji Clutch in fully this time as he almost makes Suwama tap out this time until Shuji would break the count again. Shuji would pick Yoshi up to hit the Fire Thunder to knock him down and Suwama would hit the Last Ride Powerbomb onto Yoshitatsu as the Violent Giants get the big win!

Real World Tag League 2018 Match
Gianni Valletta & TAJIRI vs. Kento Miyahara & Yoshitatsu

Review: Now that we’re onto the next show of this article, time to start us off with TAJIRI teaming up to Gianni Valletta as they take on Kento Miyahara and Yoshitatsu. Kento and Yoshi would come off short in the main event of the day one show and now they look to try and rebound from that loss by defeating this odd duo. Will Kento and Yoshi be able to bounce back or will Gianni and TAJIRI pull off an upset?

The fans would start chanting for Kento before the match would even begin and they even do it for Yoshi a little bit, but TAJIRI and Gianni would go to the crowd to try and make them stop the chanting. TAJIRI and Kento would start the match off and looks like they’re giving us some nice chain wrestling for a little while and it would stop once TAJIRI would give Kento a kick on his ass, that’ll show him… Anyway, TAJIRI and Gianna would do fairly decent with keeping up against both Kento and Yoshi to give us a solid bout. Gianni slightly did better in this match, then again his partner is TAJIRI and one of his opponents was Kento. Yoshi would first apply the Koji Clutch which gets broken up and he would attempt the Codebreaker of Jericho onto Gianna, which he pushed him off and almost got caught in a German Suplex Hold until TAJIRI would kick Kento in the ass again but harder this time to break and hold and make him roll outside. Yoshi would try to hit the Codebreaker of Jericho onto TAJIRI now but TAJIRI would spray green mist into his eyes and Gianni would pin Yoshitatsu to get the victory, leaving Kento and Yoshi with two losses now.

Real World Tag League 2018 Match
Odinson & Parrow vs. Joe Doering & James Dylan

Review: Our next match of the show is set to take place between these two powerhouse tag teams with The End taking The Bomber which consists of one of our new pairings, Joe Doering and James Dylan. Joe and James have been teaming up recently and now it’s time for them to put their tag skills to the test in this tournament. The End pulled off an impressive win over the current All Asia Tag Team Champions at the first show and now they have a big challenge ahead of them. Which is these two will get the point?

The two teams would start off with a test of strength and The End would start to dominate right away surprisingly since I expected it to be the other way around with Joe and Dylan, but this is a nice unexpected surprise. The two would keep taking advantage over Joe Doering until Joe was able to push Odinson off of him to tag Dylan in now. Dylan would attempt a Chokeslam on Odinson but he would backflip out of it and that looked awesome, I’m enjoying The End the more I see them in the ring. The match would end fairly quick with Joe hitting his Diving Body Press onto Odinson to get the victory a little over five minutes. It was the type of match you’d expect with it being short and sweet while doing its purpose.

Rating: Tony Schiavone and three quarters

 

Real World Tag League 2018 Match
Shuji Ishikawa & Suwama vs. Naoya Nomura & Yumi Aoyagi

Review: It’s now time for our main event of the show as we have a champion versus champions match taking place. First, we have our current Tag Team Champions, The Violent Giants taking on the current All Asia Tag Team Champions and NEXTREAM members, Naoya Nomura and Yumi Aoyagi. Violent Giants were able to secure a big win against Kento and Yoshi while Naoya and Yumi were unable to get the win after being destroyed by The End. If I know one thing, it’s that you shouldn’t count Naoya and Yumi out of the race just yet and they would use this opportunity to maybe get an upset victory. Which of these champions will walk out the victor?

I’m glad NEXTREAM were able to get a fair match this time around instead of just another squash match with them. One thing I love about Nomura and Yumi teaming up is their drive to one day be the best in not only tag team but as individuals as well and they keep getting better everytime they step into that ring since every match is a learning experience and they just learned from some of the best right here. Violent Giants have another stellar performance back to back in the main event picture as they were the vets teaching the younger guys a lesson in the ring while proving why they’re still at the top of their game.

You wanna know what I really like about this match? The simplicity of it and I say that because both of these teams didn’t really do anything big, flashy, or anything like that and would just give us a basic wrestling match but also delivering us a great one at the same time. Another thing I enjoyed about the match is that is wasn’t one-sided at all and gave us an equal amount of time for both of them to make them both look strong in the end of the match. Suwama would attempt the Last Ride as Yuma would attack Suwama before he could lift him up and Nomura would hit the Spear for a two count. Suwama would get Nomura right where he wants him as he hits a German Suplex twice in a row and it looked like Nomura was hulking up until Suwama hits him with a Lariat to keep him down. Yuma and Shuji were in the ring while the two were down as Yuma runs towards him to knee Shuji in the face and Shuji counteracts it with a stiff Lariat to get him down.

The Violent Giants would Clothesline Nomura while he was on the ropes with Suwama hitting the Belly-to-Belly Suplex and Shuji tops it off with a knee to face face as he went for the pin as Yuma broke the pinfall. The Giants would now hit Yuma with a Double Powerbomb to get Yuma out of the ring as Suwama went to pick Nomura for the Last Ride but Nomura flips over him to try and get the pinfall as Suwama kicked out once again. Nomura would run after Suwama to try and hit the Spear as Suwama quickly caught him to pick him up for a Last Ride as Violent Giants remain undefeated with another victory!

Rating: Bruce Prichard

Overall: The first two shows are all done with and I thought it was a great way to start us off with giving us solid matches from top to bottom and delivering two great main events. This is the tournament to be following when it comes to the tag team division, so if you wanna follow this tournament, now is the time.

Favorite Match: Shuji Ishikawa and Suwama vs. Kento Miyahara vs. Yoshitatsu

With the Global Tag League in full effect, Hisame brings us those weekly NOAH updates! Read up on one of the best Japanese promotions that tends to fly under the radar!

CURRENT TOUR RECAP
NOAH’s first show back on the mainland was held on a midweek night, and while the attendance was not good (819), the show was intense and the fans that did not go were lamenting that they were prevented from going due to it being a midweek night, and therefore, a work night.

Due to Quiet Storm sustaining a concussion after receiving a kick to the head from Kenoh in Sapporo, NOAH have changed their cards (no date has been given for a return of either himself or Kimya Okada yet), and 50 Funky Powers have so far been deducted four points, as per the rules of Global Tag League which counts a team being unable to compete as an automatic loss and a win for the other team (hence the reason why The Tough have two points), and Rocky Kawamura was drafted in to compete at Korakuen Hall. His gimmick is Rocky (the character from the films), and Mohammed

Yone took his name from Mohammed Ali, so you had two boxing fans together.

Yone laughed afterwards and said that he himself might try coming to the ring in boxing gloves.

True to his word, NOSAWA Rongai bought a “friend” to Korakuen Hall.

The “friend” turned out to be Hideki Suzuki who had a match in 2018 in NOAH against Naomichi Marufuji and Atsushi Kotoge (he teamed with Jay Bradley), but wasn’t seen at all again until 2019.

Suzuki got in the ring and asked for a tag match against Marufuji (Suzuki will team with NOSAWA), as he was at ringside (and all of the heavyweights are tied up in Global Tag League), Marufuji, after telling Suzuki that he should build his own gang, said “lets just have a match” and nominated Junta Miyawaki to be his partner. Miyawaki told NOSAWA that he was going to get the victory over him.

Match has been set for the last night of Global Tag League on May 4th.

When asked why he was here, Hideki said he was “job hunting” and hadn’t been employed since the beginning of the year. He later admitted that he was here for himself.

As if the Korakuen Hall crowd weren’t wound up enough, there was a HUGE upset for AXIZ when Masao Inoue (whom the crowd had been cheering on), got the sneak win over Katsuhiko Nakajima.

After the match, Inoue and Saito went to imitate AXIZ’S pose, but at the last moment Saito walked away leaving Inoue to crash to the floor.

The crowd laughed.

Saito laughed louder.

Nakajima, however, didn’t find anything amusing and said that Masao Inoue has borrowed something big, and he will be coming to take it back.

Whatever it is that is going on between Stinger and Daisuke Harada took another turn at Korakuen Hall.

Yoshinari Ogawa offered his hand to Daisuke Harada again, and Harada went to take it, but Tadasuke objected. Harada shoved him aside, and Tadasuke fell against the ropes with a look of surprise. Ogawa tried again, but this time YO-HEY came between them. After that, Harada looked at his hand and just left the ring.

AXIZ were not the only team to have a bad night at Korakuen Hall, their rivals in KAIOH did too.

Takashi Sugiura (complete with stitches after the headbutts from Atsushi Kotoge in Sapporo) stood still and staring at his two former protegees as they entered the ring.

They probably knew that it was a very very bad sign. This match was not about “The Sugiura Army” beating KAIOH, this was about Takashi Sugiura beating down two upstarts, and although they put him through hell, he prevailed with the headlock choke on Kaito Kiyomiya. After the match he got on the microphone and told Kiyomiya that he wouldn’t push the issue now as it was Global Tag League, but he wanted Kiyomiya to remember, that he would be coming for the title.

NOAH held their next event on Sunday 21st April at a new venue (which had been a former fish market) in springtime Niigata. Attendance was a full house of 865.

Naturally, being an event by the Shinano River, a fight went outside and to the riverside, and Marufuji almost threw YO-HEY in. Tadasuke thought it would have been funny, but YO-HEY said that the next time NOAH come to the venue, he is going to bring goggles and a flotation device for Marufuji.

Marufuji’s response was basically, “bring them for yourself”.

Fact is, that if NOAH go back there in the summer or autumn, someone will most likely go in (probably Kotoge in his cape).

Daisuke Harada made the first defense ever of the IPW Junior Heavyweight title against Hitoshi Kumano. While I don’t have too much details on the match itself, one fan did liken it to a fight that one of the Four Pillars would have put on. It was that intense.

Harada said that he wants his next challenger to be British, and said it would be interesting to see if anyone came over to NOAH. He also said that with Global Junior Tag League starting, he was equally interested to see if a team would enter.

When asked about the handshake with Ogawa, Harada walked away.

Yoshinari Ogawa had said that you could see how the situation was developing, as Kotaro Suzuki added, “If the leader’s heart is swayed, then the team is over”

Kaioh were almost beaten in Global Tag League by The Inferno. That was until Kiyomiya changed the tide of the match, and got the pin via the Tiger Suplex on Maybach Taniguchi.

So far Kenoh has not managed to get a single win at Global Tag League. Once the league is over, and especially if Kaioh do not win the titles, then his resentment is going to erupt.

As of the time of writing, The Sugiura Army lead the scoreboard with eight points.

CURRENT CHAMPIONS


TOUR TIDBITS
~ Although he cannot wrestle due to concussion, Kinya Okada has been seen at ringside doing his usual duties. Poor boy looks sad, like he did when he was unable to debut due to injury.
~ Minoru Tanaka was hungover at the Niigata event. Said he hoped it would help his hangover. It didn’t.
~ Each time Atsushi Kotoge went to do the “Revolutionary Hero” pose, Marufuji smacked his arm down (Yoshiki Inamura in Niigata was a little more game)
~ Takashi Sugiura said there are to be no further entries into the “Sugiura Army”, he also doesn’t like NOSAWA being put at the center of the group in the official photographs for the new “Sugiura Army” t-shirts.
~ I don’t want to know exactly what a “YO-HEY Teriyaki McBurger” is
~ Takashi Sugiura’s most infamous dog video this week was him on his lap, and chewing the cord of his tracksuit pants.

Honma hits a DDT on Amapola and Dalys breaks it up. Honma catches Dalys in a flying arm bar but Dalys fights out and hits a sit out power bomb for the pin. Isis goes to dive on Sugehit off of the apron but Sugehit kicks her. Kaho makes Dalys and Amapola hit each other until Amapola spears Kaho and then she’s had it and keeps attacking her when the ref instructs her to get off she continues. So Kaho wins by DQ. Third Fall: Kaho Kobayashi wins via DQ.

Winners: Tae Honma, Princesa Sugehit, and Kaho Kobayashi

Kawato and Cometa begin the match aggressively grappling with each other. Cometa gets Kawato to the outside and then hits a dive through the middle rope. Back in the ring Kawato hits a drop kick.

Winner: Rey Cometa

Caristico, Angel de Oro, and Atlantis Jr vs Sanson, Rey Bucanero, and Hijo Del Villano III

Atlantis Jr and Hijo Del Villano III start out going back and forth really quickly. Sanson and Angel come in next and they grapple for a bit but then Caristico enters with Bucnaero. Bucanero attacks Oro and Atlantis Jr and then they team on Caristico. They team up on Angel next and take him out and then work over Atlantis Jr. Sanson holds Caristico and Bucanero hits a whisper in the wind for the pin. First Fall: Sanson pins Caristico after Bucanero hits a whisper in the wind.

Villano III works over Caristico to start the round. It evolves in the rudos teaming on the technicos once again. Caristico hits a handspring elbow attack to make a come back and then hits a hurricanrana on Sanson. Oro hits a hurricanrana on Villano III to the outside and Atlantis hits a missile drop kick on Bucanero to the outside.

Second Fall: Caristico submits Sanson with a Fujiwara arm bar.

Atlantis starts out fast getting the edge on everybody. Oro then uses his quickness to get the advantage on everybody as well. Caristico comes in on fire as well. All three, Caristico, Oro, and Atlantis hit dives through the middle rope. Sanson hits a swinging slam on Caristico but Atlantis breaks up the pin. Atlantis tries to get Villano in a torture rack but it’s unsuccessful. Caristico hits a splash to the outside on Sanson. Atlantis then finally gets Villano III in the torture rack. Third Fall: Atlantis Jr submits Villano with a torture rack.

Winners: Caristico, Angel de Oro, and Atlantis Jr
