Zero1 News: It has been officially announced that Daichi Hashimoto will indeed face Masahiro Chono for his debut on March 6, 2011!
This was mentioned a few months ago as the match we could see for his debut, but it is sort of unheard of for a wrestler to come in and go right at a legend. Though this actually points out… how much potential is on Daichi and the strong future that is in store for him.
NOAH & NJPW News: The interesting news of the day is the announcement of a joint “training” project between NJPW & NOAH and you could put WLW since they are directly affiliated with NOAH. From what I gather this is something that is aiming to better the state of wrestling as a whole. Create better environments and better teaching opportunities for those who w…ish to become a pro wrestler.
Also looking at the “sign-up form” there is a spot for women wrestler’s http://www.noah.co.jp/postmail/ , which completely opens the doors for both NJPW and NOAH if they do indeed wish to go that route with their promotions.
This project has been announced to begin in April of 2011 and mentions about the tryouts with WLW in the early Fall.
This is definitely a positive thing for NOAH that has especially lacked new talent for 5 years now and it should be interesting to see what comes from this project throughout the year.
