Promotion History

Pro Wrestling NOAH is a promotions that was formed off of All Japan Pro Wrestling in July of 2000 and has since been the home for the likes of Misawa, Kobashi, and Akiyama as their top talent for the following years. With most of the All Japan talent following with Misawa, NOAH instantly had a lot notoriety and has no issues in gaining strong attendance numbers early on in their inception.
Pro Wrestling NOAH’s headquarters is located next to the Ariake Colosseum as well as the Differ Ariake which is known as their home arena.
NOAH’s name actually comes from the Bible where it is called from the individual known as Noah who was the one who held the responsibility of building an ark and helping God’s creation live on following a massive destructive flood. So NOAH is labeled by many as “NOAH’s ark” as it represents the sailing of the promotion from All Japan to start again. You can see many of the theme’s even used in the tours from “Departure”, “Voyage” and “Navigation”.
Something else as of late, that I have been reading, is that NOAH supposedly relies more on a “rank system” other than a true difference in weight and height. This can be noted with the past Heavyweight Title wins by Yoshinari Ogawa and Naomichi Marufuji. Generally the distinction of rank between junior heavyweight and heavyweight are equally treated. Mixed tag matches between the two are common and even mixed singles matches have been held on numerous occasions.
They have been followed by many for having a lot of strong matches in the past 10 years of it’s existence and even though they seem to be at an odd place currently, following the death of Misawa in 2009, at this time they are working to build a future to keep Misawa’s lineage alive and well.
