On July 17 at the Sendai Hills Hotel Michinoku Hall, Michinoku Pro makes its return to Sendai, with the Tohoku Tag Team Championship on the line.
GAINA & Taro Nohashi, currently in their third reign as Tohoku Tag Team Champions, will be defending their championship against Manabu & Ken45. Both men are former holders of the championship, and Manabu forced Taro Nohashi into submission during a tag team match at last week’s Michinoku Pro event at Korakuen Hall. If Manabu is able to do this again on July 17, Michinoku Pro will have new Tohoku Tag Team Champions.
The Tohoku Tag Team Championship has a lot of legitimacy in the industry, with many great teams being a part of its lineage, including Yapper Man 1 & Yapper Man 2, and Dick Togo & The Great Sasuke. When GAINA & Taro Nohashi won the championship in March, they unified it with the UWA World Tag Team Championship. Combined with the Kyushu Pro Tag Team Championship, which they also held, GAINA & Nohashi became the first Tohoku, UWA World, Kyushu Pro Wrestling Triple Crown Tag Champions in pro-wrestling history.
Although GAINA & Taro Nohashi no longer hold the UWA World Tag Team Championship, they have proven this year that they are one of the best tag teams in the pro-wrestling industry, and they no doubt plan on leaving Sendai Hills Hotel Michinoku Hall with their Tohoku Tag Team Championship intact.
