There has been much talk that Chono will become a vital part of All Japan in the New Year. My details are not the best at this time, but you can be rest assured knowing that something is going to he happening. Potential a new group formed under Chono, at this time called “TEAM 2013” (much like TEAM 2000), and I will update you all when I receive more information.
