ZERO1 News: Fire Festival Participants Announced

SportsNavi reports the participants in this year’s ZERO1 Fire Festival tournament were announced today, and in a surprise development only 9 of the 10 participants were determined by ZERO1. The promotion’s ring announcer received a letter from the NWA executive committee and apparently hid it from ZERO1 President Shinjiro Otani-it was presented today and states that per the NWA’s decision, which ZERO1 had to abide by, IGF star Atsushi Sawada would be the other participant. So with that, here are the 10 participants in this year’s tournament:
Ryouji Sai (current ZERO1 World Heavyweight Champion)
Shinjiro Otani (defending tournament champion)
Kohei Sato
Masato Tanaka
Daisuke Sekimoto (Big Japan)
Akebono (Independent/Freelancer)
Zeus (Osaka Pro)
Fujita “Jr.” Hayato (Michinoku Pro)
Kenta Kakinuma
Atsushi Sawada (IGF/NWA Selection)

The 2 blocks and pairings will be announced tomorrow at Korakuen.
