Puroresu News

Kuishinbo Kamen & Ebessan coming to NOAH!
Osaka Pro's kings of comedy Kuishinbo Kamen and Ebessan will be working Pro Wrestling NOAH's 5/18/04 show at Niigata City Gymnasium. Ebessan will team with current GHC Jr. Tag Champions Naomichi Marufuji & KENTA against Kamen teaming with Tsuyoshi Kikuchi and Kotaro Suzuki. Hopefully, more dates for them to work will be announced and you can bet I'll be getting the tape with this match on it!

Mutoh Challenging for Triple Crown
2004 All Japan Champion Carnival winner Keiji Mutoh will be next to challenge Toshiaki Kawada for the Triple Crown, following the All Japan tradition that the Carnival winner is No.1 contender. The match will take place on 6/12/04 at Aichi Prefectural Gymnasium. This will be Kawada's fifth defense of the Triple Crown, and he holds a victory over Mutoh for the titles when he beat him at the Nippon Budokan two years ago, but had to forfeit the belts due to injuries.
In other All Japan news, Genichiro Tenryu will team with Masanobu Fuchi (can we call them the Grumpy Old Men team?) to challenge Great Kosuke and Shiryu for the All Asian Tag Titles on 5/22 (My birthday!) at the famed Tokyo Korakuen Hall. This is Tenryu's first planned step to win all the major tag titles in AJPW and NJPW.

Where did Zach hop off to?
I was kinda suprised to find out that one legged wonder kid Zach Gowen actually made it to Japan and is working the current tour for Big Japan Pro Wrestling. He hasn't taken part in any of the promotion's wild death matches, but he has picked up some wins in tag matches teaming with the likes of MEN'S Teioh and Daisuke Sugimoto!
