7/10 NOAH Results
NOAH ran their latest blowout event yesterday, results from GREAT VOYAGE ’11 in Tokyo Vol. 3 at Ariake Colisseum:
They claimed 4400 paid. Still not great.
Masao Inoue & Shuhei Taniguchi beat Takashi Okita & Kentaro Shiga in 11 minutes. Taniguchi pinned Okita after an atomic bomb.
Ricky Marvin & Yoshinari Ogawa beat Satoshi Kajiwara & Kento Miyahara in 13:32. Ogawa pinned Kajiwara.
Mohammed Yone beat Akitoshi Saito in 10:40.
Genba Hirayanagi, KENTA & Yoshihiro Takayama beat Atsushi Aoki, Taiji Ishimori & Takuma Sano in 13:40. KENTA pinned Aoki after GO 2 SLEEP.
Jun Akiyama beat Katsuhiko Nakajima in 10:35.
Kensuke Sasaki beat Takeshi Morishima in 14:32.
GHC Jr. Heavyweight Champion Kotaro Suzuki beat Yoshinobu Kanemaru in 18:32 to retain the title. V7 for Suzuki.
Go Shiozaki beat GHC Heavyweight Champion Takashi Sugiura in 29:48 to win the title. Shiozaki wins the title for the 2nd time and becomes the 17th GHC Heavyweight Champion. And perhaps fitting he beats the man who originally beat him for the title to take it back. Sugiura’s record-setting & threatening reign has finally ended after just over 19 months. He did set the all-time record of 14 successful defenses, but Kenta Kobashi’s 2-year, 2-day reign still stands. Still perhaps the most impressive Heavyweight title reign in Japan in some time.
The next tour begins Saturday.
