[NOAH News] Noah has announced the full card for the upcoming “GREAT VOYAGE 2014 in Tokyo vol.3” on December 6 at the Ariake Colosseum.
Among the new additions is the official signing of the main event as the GHC Heavyweight champion Naomichi Marufuji will be putting the belt on the line against the 2014 Global League winner Takashi Sugiura. Following his win of the GL, Sugiura made the challenge to Marufuji for the main event of the upcoming show. It was also announced that Sugiura and Masato Tanaka will be defending the GHC Tag belts against Marufuji and Muhammed Yone on November 24th at the Korakuen Hall.
It was also announced that there will be a contender’s match on the show as well as Takeshi Morishima and Satoshi Kojima will meeting in a rematch following the final day of the GL. Both men beat the GHC Heavy champion Marufuji during the league and are set up as rightful challengers in due time, but Kojima has issues with how Morishima won matches during the league, specifically in their match. Speaking of Chokibogun, Maybach Taniguchi will also get himself a big singles match as he gets Satoshi Kojima’s partner Hiroyoshi Tenzan. The two recently faced off in a tag match back on October 12th with Maybach forcing a foul with a use of a weapon.
Then the last match to note on today’s post is the official announcement that TMDK, Mikey Nicholls & Shane Haste, and Quiet Storm will be taking on the team of BJW’s Daisuke Sekimoto and the Yankee Nichokenju, Isami Kodaka & Yuko Miyamoto. This match has some early expectations as it features two of the teams who fought over the Tokyo Sports “2014 Grand Prix Best Tag Teams”, which TMDK ended up winning. The two teams have never faced against each other, so this match has a bit of build heading into it.
Below is the announced card in full…
