Pro Wrestling NOAH wrestler Yoshiki Inamura has been announced to make his PROGRESS Wrestling debut next weekend at our double header in Birmingham and Sheffield on the 9th & 10th September. The future NOAH standout was told by KENOH last month that he was getting stronger, and it is felt by Pro Wrestling NOAH management that a UK excursion will make him even stronger as he will face some of the best wrestlers in the world, whilst adapting to new styles.
His farewell match in Pro Wrestling NOAH this Sunday was a six-man tag against Takashi Sugiura, Masa Kitamiya and Naomichi Marufuji proving he has faced the best Japan has to offer, but now it is time for him to hone his craft on UK soil. PROGRESS Wrestling is the home of British Strong Style wrestling, and his matches in our company promise to be as hard-hitting as they are spectacular.
First up for the man that Keiji Muto personally picked to be his tag team partner during his retirement tour, is a PROGRESS ATLAS Championship match against Ricky Knight Jr at Chapter 155: Feel The Noize in Birmingham. That bout is then followed by his trip to Sheffield at Chapter 156: Steal Yourself to face LJ Cleary.
It is a huge honour for PROGRESS Wrestling to have Yoshiki Inamura challenge for the ATLAS Championship on his debut with the company, but our champion Ricky Knight Jr is certainly no pushover, having gained a massive win for himself over Davey Boy Smith Jr in the battle of the families on our joint show with DEFY at AEW All In weekend. That match promises to have a big fight feel and he could well be stepping into his match in Sheffield against LJ Cleary on Sunday, carrying the PROGRESS ATLAS Championship around his waist.
