Pro Wrestling NOAH had an ambitious outlook this week booking Korakuen Hall for a card going head-to-head with Wrestle Kingdom 14 next door.

The result proved it was a risk worth taking with the promotion selling out the venue and capping its show with a major title change.

In the main event, Go Shiozaki ended the year-long GHC title reign of Kaito Kiyomiya, who held the title since December 2018.

The 37-year old Shiozaki is now a four-time GHC champion and last held the title in 2016.

The other title change on the card saw Yoshinari Ogawa defeat HAYATA to become the GHC junior heavyweight champion. It’s Ogawa’s first GHC junior heavyweight title win with HAYATA holding the championship since August.

The promotion returns on Sunday with another card at Korakuen Hall, which will be a surprise lineup of matches for those in attendance.

Here are the complete results from Saturday’s show at Korakuen Hall:
*Akitoshi Saito & Masao Inoue over Quiet Storm & Mohammed Yone
*Tadasuke & YO-HEY over Seiya Morohashi & Kumano
*Shuhei Taniguchi & Daisuke Harada over El Hijo de Dr. Wagner Jr. & Hajime Ohara
*Kenoh & Yoshiki Inamura over Hideki Suzuki & Kinya Okada
*Chris Ridgeway & Doug Williams over Naomichi Marufuji & Minoru Tanaka
*Michael Elgin over Katsuhiko Nakajima
*Atsushi Kotoge & Kotaro Suzuki over NIOH & Haoh to retain the GHC junior heavyweight tag titles
*Yoshinari Ogawa over HAYATA to win the GHC junior heavyweight title
*Takashi Sugiura over Masa Kitamiya to retain the GHC National title
*Go Shiozaki over Kaito Kiyomiya to win the GHC heavyweight title
