ImWreck Posted May 25, 2017 Share Posted May 25, 2017 http://pm1.narvii.com/5901/7c924e0bf549e15da6c185a7faa81eaaeb3868d9_hq.jpg Once a promotion that had all the momentum in the world with their brilliant mix of Young Midcarders that had massive potential like KENTA, Marufuji, Morishima, Shiozaki, and Ishimori along with the legends that sold out crowds for them like Kobashi, Akiyama, Kensuke Sasaki, and The founder of the promotion (IMO the greatest wrestler of all time) Mitsuharu Misawa, Noah was on top of the world until... the unfortunate passing of Misawa on June 13th, 2009. It was the first of many blows to Pro Wrestling Noah. During the same year, Noah lost their TV Show slot on Nippon TV. Blow #3 came when in March 2012, it was revealed that Noah management had ties to a Yakuza crime syndicate, which resulted in the promotion demoting General Manager Ryu Nakata and Counselor Haruka Eigen and enforcing new anti-Yakuza protocols; Noah also lost its TV show as part of the fallout. Blow #4 was releasing Kenta Kobashi due to his demands for his pay increase (Although Kobashi returned to wrestle his retirement match) because of this release, a small excursion occurred with Jun Akiyama leading a band of wrestlers who would not resign with Noah but rather sign with rival fed AJPW. And finally, the Blow #5 came in the form of Takeshi Morishima's retirement who was forced to leave the world of wrestling due to problems with his blood. What is Noah now? It's the eternal 3rd place promotion in Japan with no TV Show like Dragon Gate and AJPW and no streaming service like #1 Japanese promotion New Japan Pro Wrestling but many are saying that this will be the comeback year for the Emerald Dynasty. A strong locker room of veteran wrestlers like Shiozaki, Marufuji, Yone, Takayama, Ishimori, and Tanaka along with rising stars such as Kenou, Masa Kitayama, and young lions of tomorrow they seem to be heading to top and leading the way is probably NOAH's equal to Kazuchika Okada, the current reigning and defending GHC Heavyweight Champion Katsuhiko Nakajima. (A/N: Welcome to those that have found my NOAH Dynasty. This will be a tough challenge for me to run my favorite Japanese Promotion (Not named Dragon Gate). Hopefully, you stick around for the ride. Also my next post will have all the goals I would like to accomplish with NOAH.) Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
