◆AJPW◆ [3/26 RESULTS]
~ Sparks between Miyahara and Super Tiger were obvious at today’s show in Saitama. The early groundwork has definitely been built as the two are set to face on 4/18 of the Champion Carnival.
~ Big Guns, Zeus & Bodyguard, claimed a win as they head into the title defense tomorrow in Niigata.
~ Nomura continues to solidify his place over Aoyagi as he aims to hold his own in the upcoming Carnival.
~ Omori also made it known that he wants another shot at the Triple Crown. A strong showing in the upcoming CC, or even winning once more, could give him the chance that he desires.
~ HARASHIMA defended the KO-D Openweight belt against Ken Ohka as heads into the next (potential) defense against Kazusada Higuchi. Potential as there are quite a few “anytime, anywhere” title challengers out there who could call him out at any given instance. Let alone Hirata could cash in after HARASHIMA has been work out against a previous opponent.
~ Daisuke Sasaki & Shuji Ishikawa also defended the KO-D Tag belts against the “World’s Cutest Tag Team” in Joey Ryan and Candice LaRae. The two will now move on to take on the former champions Konosuke Takeshita & Tetsuya Endo in a rematch for the belts.
~ “Team DNA” Kazusada Higuchi, Shunma Katsumata & Kouki Iwasaki also defended the KO-D 6 Tag belts against the “Shouten Doji” team of Yukio Sakaguchi, Masa Takanashi & Kota Umeda.
~ Shigehiro Irie called out Super Sasadango Machine for a challenge for the EXTREME belt on today’s show. Which the match has now been set for 4/3 show. Where the two were original set to face in a non-title match.
~ It was formally announced that Rekka of NTW (New Taiwan Wrestling) will be officially joining DNA, dual affiliation, as of today. Sanshiro Takagi is looking to form a relationship with competing regularly in Taiwan and hopes this will build a bridge between the two promotions as well as the countries.
With his signing the full show for the next DNA show was released.
