IGF News: GENOME 15 Card Announced
At a press conference today, IGF executive producer Masa Chono announced the entire card for IGF’s GENOME 15 event on 4/28 at JCB Hall. Also detailed were plans for earthquake disaster relief fundraising at the event, which will include collections at the door taken by wrestlers and funds from sales of limited edition goods. As far as the card, SportsNavi indicates there will be the start or continuation of a tournament to possibly crown the first IGF Super Luxurious 200 Million Yen Belt Champion. The card:
Taka Kunou & Munenori Sawa vs. Hideki Suzuki & Akira Joh
Tiger Mask 1 (First Tiger Mask) & Ultimo Dragon vs. The Great Sasuke & Masked Genome Jr.
Tatsumi Fujinami 40th Anniversary Commemoration Match: Tatsumi Fujinami vs. Big Van Vader
Yoshiaki Fujiwara & Minoru (All-Japan) vs. Shinjiro Otani & Daichi Hashimoto
IGF Kickboxing Rules: Bob Sapp vs. Masayoshi Kakutani. Fight is 3 3-minute rounds
Atsushi Sawada vs. Ryouji Sai
IGF Super Luxurious 200 Million Yen Belt Championship Tournament:
Bobby Lashley vs. Keith Hanson
Shinichi Suzukawa vs. Jerome LeBanner
I’m guessing the finals for the title could be at GENOME 16 on July 10 but no plans are set yet. Also possible for this of a future event is the wrestling debut of a former sumo wrestler who recently retired from sumo due to involvement in a major betting/gambling scandal that has rocked sumo over the last year.
