Four-time GHC Heavyweight Champion Naomichi Marufuji is returning to in-ring action for Pro Wrestling NOAH on August 5th. He’s been sidelined since May due to knee pain and was pulled from the organization’s 5/30 show.

Marufuji is going to be in six-man tag action as he’ll team with Go Shiozaki and Takashi Sugiura to face Satoshi Kojima, Masato Tanaka and Daiki Inaba.

Marufuji’s partner in the match, Go Shiozaki, was sidelined last week because of a neck injury.

In addition to being part of Marufuji’s return bout, Satoshi Kojima, Go Shiozaki and Masato Tanaka are scheduled for the N-1 Victory tournament.
