The Official Michinoku Pro Wrestling Channel is now presenting Michinoku Pro Wrestling LIVE #20, the latest edition of their YouTube program. Michinoku Pro Wrestling LIVE shows take place at the Michinoku Pro Dojo in Iwate, Japan.
Existing since 1993, Michinoku Pro was created with Iwate in mind, so many events in Iwate feature matches that are not seen anywhere else in the country. Michinoku Pro hosts shows at their dojo regularly but occasionally will stream a show live via YouTube as well.
Match 1: Ken45 vs. Rui Hyugaji
Ken45 is the definition of loyal to Michinoku Pro. Although he is a freelancer, Ken45 has wrestled in Michinoku Pro more than any other promotion during his 19-year career. He has been a co-holder of the Tohoku & UWA World Tag Team Title.
Rui Hyugaji was trained by the Michinoku Pro Dojo 14 years ago and is one of its most successful graduates. He is a three-time former Tohoku Junior Heavyweight Champion (Michinoku Pro’s singles champion), with his third reign being the longest in Michinoku Pro history.
Match 2: Taro Nohashi vs. Koji Kawamura
This match is a bit of a preview of the action that will take place at the big Michinoku Pro event on March 19 in Yahaba Town, where Taro Nohashi & GAINA will defend the UWA World Tag Team Championship against Koji Kawamura & Yasutaka Oosera. It will be Nohashi and GAINA’s first defense during this current reign. Nohashi and Kawamura recently also faced each other on Michinoku Pro Wrestling LIVE #19, when they (along with The Great Sasuke) were involved in a, “Three Way” match. Today in Tokushima City, Kawamura will have the opportunity of his career, when he faces MUSASHI for the Tohoku Junior Heavyweight Championship. Nohashi will have a big opportunity today as well, as he and GAINA will go against Sasuke & Jinsei Shinzaki for the Tohoku Tag Team Championship,
