5 former Pro-Wrestling NOAH talents, Jun Akiyama, Go Shiozaki, Yoshinobu Kanemaru, Kotaro Suzuki and Atsushi Aoki, announced their return to pro wrestling to compete for All Japan Pro-Wrestling. The former NOAH wrestlers will be going forward under the team name, BURNING, which was appropriated honored to them by Kobashi. They’ve come to take charge of AJPW. All 5 of the men appeared during the January 26th show and announced that they will be competing for the promotion in February and possibly longer. All of them shook hands with AJPW’s President, Masayuki Uchida. This will be an interesting shake up for All Japan Pro-Wrestling; It’ll be very interesting to see how Pro-Wrestling NOAH continues to cope with the now permanent loss of these talents.

New Japan Pro-Wrestling announced that BUSHI is now an official part of the NJPW roster, from now on.

Both the president of NJPW, Naoki Sugabayashi, and the president of AJPW, Masayuki Uchida, were present for the announcement.

BUSHI says that he has nothing but gratitude for his time in All Japan Pro-Wrestling, but he is proud to wear the lion mark (on his t-shirt) as a member of New Japan Pro-Wrestling. BUSHI also said he plans to work hard to prove himself again since the trial period is over.
