After the event the first names for the Fire Festival 2012 have been announced. The defending champion Daisuke Sekimoto will be looking to carry the sword for another year, Shinjiro Otani, Ryoji Sai, Kohei Sato, KAMIKAZE, Tomoaki Honma, Mohammed Yone (got boo’s by the way) from NOAH, then the biggest shocker was Go Shiozaki appearing and announcing that he wants to be in the tournament as well. With the news that Shiozaki wants to be in the tournament Shito Ueda got a bit confrontational with Shiozaki and said the want in as well.
The tournament is set to start on July 20th @ Bellesalle Roppongi with the Final on August 5th @ Korakuen Hall.
