SPOTLIGHTED PODCAST ALERT (YOUR ARTICLE BEGINS A FEW INCHES DOWN)...
Pro Wrestling NOAH held a press conference Tuesday setting up their big “Great Voyage” show on Saturday (May 28) in Osaka, Japan.
Included were two jarring scenes. One was New Japan’s resident goofball Toru Yano dressed in a suit and looking like a normal person. Yano and Naomichi Marufuji were part of the press conference to promote their GHC Tag Title match against K.E.S. (Lance Archer & Davey Boy Smith, Jr.) after winning the Global Tag League.
The other jarring scene was GHC World champion Takashi Sugiura turning a regular title match signing into a vicious attack on the challenger, Go Shiozaki.
Suguira flipped over the press conference table and attacked Shiozaki with a chair before leaving the press conference room. Shiozaki slowly recovered and vowed to win the GHC Title.
Also on the card for May 28 is former WWE star Shelton Benjamin in singles action against Maybach Taniguchi. Plus, New Japan’s SuzukiGun stable in tag action represented by Minoru Suzuki and crazy-man Takashi Iizuka.
