[NOAH News] A press conference was held today for the upcoming GHC Heavyweight and Junior championship matches that are scheduled to take place this month.
The reigning GHC Heavyweight Champion Yuji Nagata was present for the title contract signing, but as usual Maybach was not present as the challenger. Nagata would take a seat, but then Maybach rushed into the room and attacked Nagata. Nagata though seemed more than prepared for an attack as he showcased his own secret weapon with a blue mist (blue justice mist?) and he went straight for Maybach’s eyes. Nagata would then shove Maybach’s face into the contract before Maybach left the room following a dose of his own medicine.
Nagata then went on with the press conference and stated that following the recent NJPW 2 day tour in Taiwan that he underwent some special training. He stated that he has indeed learned a new “dodge technique” and that it could come in handy if Maybach decides to bring in his favorite weapon. Nagata declared that he will successfully defended the belt in Nagoya on the 20th and he aims to beat the hell out of Maybach in the process.
The second part of the conference was for the GHC Jr. Heavyweight belt match between the champion Daisuke Harada and the challenger Atsushi Kotoge. This match will be quite fitting as it takes place in Osaka, Japan. As they are both were born in that area and got their starts there. Both have been close friends as well as rivals in their 8+ year career’s. the two look to be aiming to go all out for the match in their hometown, and it could be a match worth checking when these two face off with the belt on the line.
