Kojima issues challenge to KENTA in Korakuen
After it was announced that Juice Robinson would miss his scheduled match with KENTA at the Tokyo Dome due to a fractured left orbital bone, Satoshi Kojima took to the ring alongside Toa Henare at Korakuen on December 23, and issued a shocking challenge to the US rights holder.
After a hard fought bout, Henare fell to a Jay White Bladerunner before Kojima invited KENTA back into the ring. Humbly asking ‘would you take a challenge from an aged 50 year old like me who can still go like hell?’ Kojima received short shrift from KENTA, but then got physical with a KojiCutter and an attempted lariat.
Saying that he was ‘going for it!’ as he approached 30 years as a pro, Kojima stated a strong case, but will that be reflected by a match at Wrestle Kingdom 15?
