The roster of Pro Wrestling NOAH was introduced at the Tokyo Dome as part of Wrestle Kingdom, a prelude to Saturday’s event in Yokohama.
Midway through the show, the NOAH wrestlers entered the ring with a who’s who including GHC champion Katsuhiko Nakajima, GHC national champion Kenoh, Kaito Kiyomiya, and Keiji Muto among them.
Both Kiyomiya and Kenoh spoke with the lion’s share handled by the national champion, who stated NOAH was seeking to become the #1 promotion.
They were confronted by LIJ members Shingo Takagi, Hiromu Takahashi, and BUSHI, who responded to the promo but did not engage in a physical confrontation due to the number’s disadvantage.
The third night of Wrestle Kingdom will be a theme of NJPW vs. NOAH from the Yokohama Arena and airs as a pay-per-view broadcast this Saturday on Abema.
