The CROSS OVER 2021 in HIROSHIMA event for Pro Wrestling NOAH have been jam-packed with action, including three major title matches. One of the matches in question featured a title change in NOAH’s junior heavyweight tag team division. By the closing bell, it was Seiki Yoshioka and Yuya Susumu of STINGER that bested Daisuke Harada and Hajime Ohara for the GHC Junior Heavyweight Tag Team Championship.
Yuya Susumu has been with NOAH since the end of last year. Since his return to the promotion, he became a staple of the STINGER faction. For the past few months, he seemed to be in lingo. This was, however, until a new member, Seiki Yoshioka, joined the faction. Yoshioka was a former faction mate of Hajime Ohara and part of a faction called FULL THROTTLE. Ultimately, Yoshioka turned on his faction and joined STINGER. Since then, Susumu and Yoshioka have become a tag team of NOAH. They eventually received a championship match at CROSS OVER 2021 in HIROSHIMA.

In this match, Seiki Yoshioka and Yuya Susumu put on a great performance with the GHC Junior Heavyweight Tag Team Champions Daisuke Harada and Hajime Ohara. The match in question ended with new champions crowned in Yoshioka and Susumu. This marks the second championship that Yoshioka has held this year, as well as his first championship won in NOAH.
This night would feature STINGER reach another night of dominance, as HAYATA retained his GHC Junior Heavyweight Tag Team Championship later on in the show against YO-HEY. The first challengers for these new champions are currently unknown. For now, what’s certain is STINGER now runs the GHC junior heavyweight singles and tag team divisions once more.
