All Japan will be holding their first junior heavyweight league since the rebirth of the promotion in the Summer of 2013. The league will be taking place throughout the “2014 Excite Series” tour, which starts on February 5th, and will run a total of 7 days with the final round being on February 16.
A total of 10 competitors will be competing in the league, with a 2 block system in place, so 5 men per block. The top ranked competitor from each block will then face off in the final match on 2/16.
Below you will see a look back from the major events that happened in the year of 2013 in the land of the rising sun. This year in particular saw a few ups and downs… maybe some bigger downs in regards to some. But with 2013 coming to close, 2014 is looking to solidify a strong beginning and the time to begin fresh and anew.
