[NOAH News] Takashi Sugiura stated that he is ready for his return on 2/3 at Korakuen and will be putting Chokibogun on immediate notice.
Sugiura stated that his elbow is better than before, though the injury is not 100% recovered, due to a compressed nerve and will take time on its own to heal. He stated that his power is where it needs to be for him to compete.
Sugiura stated that he is aware of what Morishima and his new group have been doing while he has been away from the ring and that he will be putting them in his sights.
Sugiura was asked if he would be going after the belt, in which Sugi replied that he will be taking it one game at a time, but it might be sooner than later. Sugiura closed the interview by saying that he will be bringing an “elbow fest” to Atsushi Kotoge on 2/3.
~ NOAH also announced that Kenou will be facing KENTA, one on one, on 3/2 for Kenou’s 6th anniversary debut match Tokushima .

[ZERO1 / Tonkotsu Dai Ohanabi News] Yoshihiro Takayama made news today as he has officially enlisted the help of Yoshiaki Fujiwara to take on Atsushi Onita, and a partner of his choosing, in an electric current blast deathmatch 3/21 at the Hakata Starlanes. If this match is carried out this will mean the 64 year old Fujiwara will be setting a record as the oldest man to take part in an explosive deathmatch.
This will not be the first time that Fujiwara has competed in a deathmatch though as he and Mr. Pogo faced off previously in the 90’s.
