[AJPW News] All Japan announced 2 title matches that will be taking place during the October “2014 Giant Series” as Joe Doering will be defending the Triple Crown belt against Go Shiozaki on October 29th, and then Jun Akiyama and Takao Omori will be defending the World Tag belts against Akebono and Yutaka Yoshie.
Go Shiozaki earned the title match after winning the “Oudou Tournament” and rightfully challenging Doering for the top prize in All Japan. Doering accepted the challenge without any hesitation and the match has been set. Shiozaki stated that the momentum is now in his favor more than ever to finally lay claim to the Triple Crown belt as he swore to become the next champion. Shiozaki though noted that Doering is also in his first reign as champion and will not be so easy to dethrone, but again he aims to make his own breakthrough. Prelude matches have also been set throughout the upcoming tour.
