What’s this, All Japan Pro Wrestling has made its return to the HEAT blog? Why yes, yes it has, and you can thank the new Voices of Wrestling forum for that.
Despite New Japan’s star power and plethora of top shelf workers, Jun Akiyama continues to be my favourite Japanese wrestler, which means I still pay a modicum of attention to All Japan results. Akiyama had an excellent match with Takao Omori a few months ago, which resulted in Omori capturing his first Triple Crown Championship. Akiyama is back to making people look good, this time working to turn Kento Miyahara into a star.
Watch the match for yourself, but I think it’s working.
