NOAH announces the return of KENTA.

Pro Wrestling NOAH hosted their ‘NOAH the BEST’ event on November 28th and during the show, it was revealed that KENTA will be returning on January 1st.

KENTA last competed for NOAH in 2018 when he came back for Naomichi Marufuji’s 20th Anniversary Show. That occurred while KENTA was still under contract with WWE.

KENTA’s return to NOAH is taking place seven days before the third day of Wrestle Kingdom which is a New Japan Pro-Wrestling versus NOAH show on 1/8. Matches for that card have yet to be announced.

Prior to his 2018 appearance, KENTA was last in NOAH in 2014 before signing with WWE and he teamed with Marufuji and they defeated current GHC Heavyweight Champion Katsuhiko Nakajima and Takashi Sugiura.
