Eita Becomes GHC Junior Heavyweight Champion
The first title change saw Eita finally bring the GHC Junior Heavyweight Championship to Perros Del Mal De Japon. The Dragon Gate star defeated former champion Daisuke Harada with the Numero Uno. This marks the first time Eita has held the GHC Junior Heavyweight Championship, and the first time it has been under the Perros Del Mal De Japon branch. Every other member failed to bring the belt to the group, but Eita was successful in his first defense.
Eita now has held both junior belts in Pro Wrestling NOAH in less than a year of competing in the company; add this to the long list of accomplishments for the 30-year-old. As of right now, nobody has stepped forward to challenge Eita. Surely, this will change sooner than later.

Hideki Suzuki and Takashi Sugiura Become GHC Heavyweight Tag Team Champions
The GHC Heavyweight Tag Team Championship is no longer vacant. The four-team mini-tournament came to a conclusion at Great Voyage 2022 in Yokohama. Sugiura Gun’s Hideki Suzuki and Takashi Sugiura won the tournament and the titles. They defeated Kenoh and Masakatsu Funaki in the first semi-final match before beating Daiki Inaba and Kaito Kiyomiya in the main event of the show, bringing Sugiura his seventh GHC Heavyweight Tag Team Championship and Suzuki’s first.
With his victory over Masakatsu Funaki in the first round, Hideki Suzuki also earned a GHC National Championship match. This match will take place on March 24, giving Sugiura Gun a chance to hold every single available heavyweight belt in the company. Currently, no team has emerged as challengers for Hideki Suzuki and Takashi Sugiura.
