NOAH 9/18 Budokan Card

Pro Wrestling NOAH announced the full card for it's upcoming Budokan show next week, and once again it's looking good! The card is stacked with alot of singles matches and everything has the potential to be good to great.
Kentaro Shiga make his return in the opener to face Tamon Honda in a match Shiga himself requested. Shiga has been on the shelf for almost two and a half years, and it will be interesting to see what he brings here against fellow grappler and BURNING member Tamon Honda.
The GHC tag champs will both be in singles competition with MiSuzuki facing Mohammed Yone and Marufuji facing Morishima, and hopefully this will lead to MoriYone getting a tag title shot down the line and win the titles cause they deserve it.
KENTA makes his first defense of the GHC Jr. title against his rival SUWA in what can be nothing short of a great match. If you remember some months back, the two had a short but very heated and good match that ended in a disqualification. I don't see the DQ happening here this time and lets hope it doesn't happen.
And there's the big tag match with Kobashi/Taue VS Tenryu/Akiyama. There's enough potential here for an MOTY candidate and also expect monster crowd heat for when Kobashi & Tenryu face off in the ring.
Finally, the main even sees GHC champion Takeshi Rikioh defending his title against NOAH ace Mitsuharu Misawa. This will be the make or break match for Rikioh as his last two defenses have been rather lackluster, and hopefully he can turn it up here.
