All Japan Event Cards for March & April 2013
All Japan announced the blocks and matches for the upcoming Champion Carnival tournament.
Following his last defense for the World Strong Heavy belt on 3/31, Daisuke Sekimoto nominated Takao Omori as his next potential challenger.
Omori has in turn accepted the challenge during today’s All Japan show (4/2).
大森呼応「ふさわしい場所用意しとけ」Omori responds “You provide a suitable place.”
Omori has left it up to Sekimoto to determine when and where it seems.
BJW will be running at the Korakuen Hall on April 28 and that has no conflict with All Japan’s own shows. So that could potentially be the date for the belt at the earliest.
