Pro Wrestling NOAH held their ‘Destination’ show today in Tokyo, Japan at the Budokan arena. The headlining match of the night was Go Shiozaki putting the GHC Heavyweight Championship on the line against Keiji Mutoh, also known as The Great Muta.
The finish of the match saw Shiozaki hit the ropes and charge at Mutoh but Mutoh leaped up and hit a hurricanrana, followed up with a pin and held down Shiozaki down to secure the win and become champion.

Post-match, former GHC Heavyweight Champion Kaito Kiyomiya came down to the ring and stared Mutoh down as the in-ring portion of the show concluded. Kiyomiya reigned as GHC Heavyweight Champion for over a year before being defeated by Go Shiozaki at NOAH’s ‘New Sunrise’ show in January of 2020.
The match between Shiozaki and Mutoh was billed as a clash of generations with Mutoh being 58 and Shiozaki being 39. With this win, Mutoh has now held the All Japan Triple Crown Heavyweight, IWGP Heavyweight and now GHC Heavyweight Championships.
