The former GHC Heavyweight Champion has returned.

Headlining Pro Wrestling NOAH’s ‘NOAH the BEST’ event was a title versus title match featuring GHC Heavyweight Champion Katsuhiko Nakajima and GHC National Champion Kenoh. The match resulted in a time-limit draw and post-match, while Nakajima was still in the ring, Go Shiozaki made his return.

He approached Nakajima and issued a challenge for the GHC Heavyweight Title for NOAH’s January 1st event and Nakajima accepted.

In March, Shiozaki took time off so he could undergo shoulder surgery. One month prior to stepping away, Shiozaki lost the GHC Heavyweight Title to Keiji Muto.

NOAH’s January 1st show will also feature the return of KENTA. January 8th is the third day of Wrestle Kingdom 16 which is the NOAH versus New Japan Pro-Wrestling pay-per-view in Yokohama, Japan.
