Pro Wrestling NOAH held a show yesterday at the Korauken Hall. Naomichi Marufuji defended the GHC heavyweight title against NJPW’s Satoshi Kojima. When the match was over, the NJPW faction Suzuki-Gun charged the ring and Minoru Suzuki laid out Marufuji with a piledriver. Meanwhile, TMDK, Shane Haste & Mikey Nicholls beat Takashi Suguira & Masato Tanaka for the GHC tag team championship.
According to sources, the idea behind the feud is to help revitalize the NOAH promotion. We had previously reported that, “New Japan either has secretly purchased controlling interest in NOAH to keep the struggling company alive, or is at least heavily funding them at this point.”
