The main event of Pro Wrestling NOAH’s Majestic card on Saturday is set with a new GHC Heavyweight Champion to be crowned.
After his challenge was made at the press conference earlier this week, Kaito Kiyomiya will challenge Go Shiozaki on Saturday at Sumo Hall for the vacant GHC crown.
Earlier in the week, Kazuyuki Fujita vacated the title after testing positive for COVID-19 – just days before his scheduled defense against Shiozaki.
