Pro Wrestling NOAH held an empty studio show on Saturday featuring a major stipulation match where the loser of the steel cage match would have their head shaved.
In the main event, Masa Kitamiya was victorious against former tag partner Katsuhiko Nakajima.
The event didn’t feature any fans and aired from the NOAH TV studio and was broadcast on Wrestle Universe and FITE TV.
As The Aggression, the two were three-time GHC tag champions and recently vacated the championship after Kitamiya turned on his partner last month.
Kitamiya won the match with a Saito suplex with the main event exceeding thirty-two minutes and culminated with Nakajima’s head being shaved.
The card also featured HAYATA winning the ‘Next Challenger Decision Rumble’ to earn a shot at GHC junior heavyweight champion Atsushi Kotoge on Sunday’s NOAH card. YO-HEY was the final elimination of the match that gave HAYATA the victory and title shot.
Sunday’s NOAH card features The Great Muta vs. Kenoh and airs at 6 a.m. ET.
