May 1 sees Fukuoka’s PayPay Dome play host to Wrestling Dontaku. A stacked card has seen intense competition for spots, but one person who wasn’t been involved in the lineup was CHAOS’ YOH. 

YOH’s motivation seemed to be in question in recent weeks, and after a loss during the Golden Fight Series tour opener this past Monday, he found himself aggressively called out by Hiromu Takahashi. The Time Bomb stated that YOH was a ‘completely different person’ to the one who fought so valiantly in the Best of the Super Jr. 28 final this past December, a criticism that YOH took to heart. 

Bringing fire to the ring in Korakuen Hall this week, YOH would take to the microphone and promise that he would ‘crush’ Hiromu. Not waiting for Best of the Super Jr., YOH demanded the match happen sooner, and that bout is now official for Fukuoka. 

Taking Hiromu’s spot in the prior advertised six man tag team opener that will see Suzuki-Gun face LIJ and the legendary Tatsumi Fujinami will be BUSHI. The current master of the tope suicida will be alongside the man who popularized the ‘Dragon Rocket’ to start what is now an even more unmissable card!
