Misawa VS Rikioh on 9/18!

Mitsuharu Misawa has formally challenged GHC Heavyweigh Champion Takeshi Rikioh for a title match on the upcoming Budokan show on 9/18! There are a lot of possibilities coming out of this as Misawa winning the title would set up a flood of dream defences against the likes of Kensuke Sasaki, Genichiro Tenryu and so on till finally dropping it to Toshiaki Kawada as payback for the Tokyo Dome win. Whereas if Rikioh beats Misawa, it would further cement his status as a top player and go on to the big defenses against bigger name stars like those mentioned above.
More as it develops in the coming weeks.
