[NOAH News] Pro Wrestling NOAH released a video from ROH’s Davey Richards in that he will be coming to compete on their upcoming Ariake Colosseum show on December 7. This will mark the first time Richards has competed in NOAH in roughly 4 and a half years.
During the video Richard stated that he is coming for Taiji Ishimori and his GHC Jr. Heavyweight belt. NOAH has not announced the match to be official as of yet, but Ishimori will be defending the belt on the show and has yet to have a formal challenger announced.
More on this announcement should be expected soon.
On side news, it has also been hinted at that Katsuyori Shibata will be competing on the show as well, with his opponent potentially being Maybach Taniguchi. Again, I will post more updates when they are known.
Announced event card at this time.
