Kobashi update

Kenta Kobashi underwent successful surgery on Friday (7/07/06) to remove a right kidney tumor. The doctors performing the surgery stated that they did not see the tumor spread to any other organs in the body, which is a very good sign. The surgery took 5 1/2 hours and was a success.

Definately good news and hopefully he makes a speedy recovery and can get back in the ring soon.

In other NOAH news, the promotion is teasing a possible GHC heavyweight title match between Jun Akiyama and SAMOA JOE for the 9/09 Budokan Hall show! It would definately be an interesting and intruiging match up to say the least, but would definately make more of an impact if Joe were to tour with NOAH first so the fans know what to expect from the Samoan Submission Machine before tossing him into the fire like what happened to Taiji Ishimori when he challenged KENTA for the GHC Jr. title a while back.
