Pro Wrestling NOAH News: Title Matches for Great Voyage 2022 Events

NOAH Great Voyage 2022 Fujita Tanaka

Great Voyage is one of the signature events for Pro Wrestling NOAH. It’s an event that happens usually in March. For the last few years, it’s had multiple events. This year is no exception, as it will feature two events: March 13 in Yokohama and 21 in Fukuoka. Let’s get into some of the title matches that have been announced so far for Great Voyage 2022.

Great Voyage 2022 Title Matches

GHC Tag Team Championship Tournament

The first three matches are part of the upcoming tournament to crown brand new GHC Heavyweight Tag Team Champions. Naomichi Marufuji and Keiji Mutoh were the previous champions. Due to an injury sustained by Mutoh, the champions would have to vacate the titles. Thus, a tournament was created to crown brand new champions. In the first match, we have Naomichi Marufuji and Masaaki Mochizuki vs. Kaito Kiyomiya and Daiki Inaba.

In the other match, Kenoh and Masakatsu Funaki battle Takashi Sugiura and the recently returning Hideki Suzuki. For those unfamiliar, Suzuki was recently part of NXT under the ring name Hachiman. The winning teams of these two matches will face each other in the main event to crown the 58th GHC Heavyweight Tag Team Champions. In the second match, we expect a possible new contender could be revealed with the GHC National Championship, as it’s the only title without a defense for the tour.

GHC Junior Heavyweight Championship Match

In the semi-final, Daisuke Harada will be making his third GHC Junior Heavyweight Championship defense and Eita. Eita has been part of NOAH as a freelancer for a little bit, a byproduct of the partnership that NOAH has with Dragon Gate. In his NOAH career so far, he has held the GHC Junior Tag Team Championship. This match also showcases the major story for the juniors on this tour. Harada vs. Eita has the potential to be a fantastic match for the event. This match could be a way to showcase how weak Los Perros del Mal de Japón is or potentially how strong they are as a faction.

GHC Junior Heavyweight Tag Team Championship Match

As we mentioned earlier, these event’s junior scenes will be focused entirely on the Los Perros del Mal de Japón vs. NOAH’s Main Unit narrative. This story started with YO-HEY getting kicked out of Los Perros del Mal de Japón to join NOAH’s Main Unit. After Kotoge and YO-HEY captured the GHC Junior Heavyweight Tag Team Championship, they were challenged by NOSAWA Rongai and Kotaro Suzuki.  Suzuki and Rongai are a new variation of the Los Perros team. This title match is the first one that has been announced for Great Voyage 2022 in Fukuoka on March 21.

GHC Heavyweight Championship Match

The main event of Great Voyage In Fukuoka is a GHC Heavyweight Championship match between Kazuyuki Fujita and Masato Tanaka. Recently, Fujita caused a gigantic upset, defeating Katsuhiko Nakajima to capture the GHC Heavyweight Championship. After the match, Tanaka would come out to challenge Fujita for the championship, as both have unfinished business. Fujita and Tanaka faced off in the final event of NOAH’s 2021, with the match ending via a 30-minute time limit draw. With multiple of these title matches starting, NOAH’s extremely stacked in March. Two more cards have still yet to be revealed on March 23 and 24.
