The wrestlers of Michinoku Pro will be in action on September 19 at Yamagata Big Wing in Yamagata (1:00 PM start time).
MATCH 1: Manjimaru VS. RINGO YAMATANI
Continuing to face the best that Michinoku Pro has to offer, the rookie Ringo Yamatani will step into the ring with Mamjimaru, current co-holder of the Tohoku Tag Team Championship and the second-longest reigning Tohoku Junior Heavyweight Champion of all time.
Match 2: Ken45 vs. Rasse
Ken45 and Rasse’s career paths are very similar. They both began their careers in 2002, and both men were trained by the legendary Último Dragón. Currently co-holder of the Tohoku Tag Team Championship and a tag team specialist in general throughout his 19-year career, Ken45 still does compete in singles matches occasionally. And although Rasse has been putting more focus on his singles career as of late, he too has been mainly focused on tag team wrestling during his career, with some of those tag matches being with Ken45 while they were both members of the Kowloon faction, which existed in Michinoku Pro from 2008 to 2012.
MATCH 3: The Great Sasuke vs. Brahman Shu vs. Brahman Kei in a, “3WAY” match
In 2014, Brahman Shu & Brahman Kei began teaming with The Great Sasuke as members of the Muno Taiyo faction, eventually capturing the Tohoku Tag Team Championship and Chiba Six Man Tag Team Championship. Since that time, Sasuke has competed against Brahman Shu & Brahman Kei in tag matches and Space Wars. This time, all three men will be in the ring with each other for a, “3WAY” match.
MATCH 4: GAINA & Taro Nohashiro vs. Ayumu Gunji & OSO11
In this match focusing on established members of the roster facing New Generation, Ayumi Gunji & OSO11 have an opportunity to face a team that dominated the tag team division earlier this year, as GAINA & Taro Nohashi were the Triple Crown Tag Champions, and that triple crown consisted of the Tohoku, UWA World, and Kyushu Pro Wrestling tag championships. They were defeated for the Tohoku Tag Team Championship in July, but a win over them would possibly put Gunji & OSO11 in line for a future shot at it.
MATCH 5: MUSASHI, Kazuki Hashimoto, and Koji Kawamura vs. Rui Hyugaji, Yapperman No. 1, and Yapperman No 2.
This will be the third send-off match for Koji Kawamura (with the first one being on September 17 in Yahaba Town and the second being on September 18 in Sendai), as he will be on an expedition in Mexico beginning this fall.
For those of you who will be in Japan on September 19, tickets are currently on sale for this event.
