All Japan Pro Wrestling "Gian Series" Tour 2023 match graphic.

All Japan Pro Wrestling wrapped up its recent tour, “Giant Series,” with a doubleheader of shows last night. Quite a few notable things happened throughout this tour. The big talking point is former Pro Wrestling NOAH star Katsuhiko Nakajima dethroning Yuma Aoyagi to become the new AJPW Triple Crown champion to close out the “Giant Series” tour.

Immediately after the match, Nakajima was confronted by a host of challengers, namely Shuji Ishikawa, Yuma Anzai, Ryuki Honda, Rising HAYATO, and Atsushi Aoyagi. Still, only one man interested him: former six-time AJPW Triple Crown Champion Kento Miyahara. The challenge was laid out for December 31st, and it has been confirmed since.

The reigning All Japan World tag team champions, Jun & Rei Saito, made two successful title defenses throughout this tour against Takao Omori/Yoshitatsu and Hokuto Omori/Minoru Suzuki ahead of the Real World Tag League starting on November 15th. All Japan also revealed the lineup for their “Real World Tag League tournament starting later this month and ending on December 6th.

Here are the participants:

  • Jun & Rei Saito (AJPW World Tag team Champions )
  • Kento Miyahara & Yuma Aoyagi (2022 Winners)
  • Hideki Okatani & Yukio Taniguchi (All Asia Tag Team Champions )
  • Cyrus & Ryan Davidson

  • SUWAMA & Hideki Suzuki
  • Shuji Ishikawa & Ren Ayabe
  • Galeno del Mal & Hayato Tamura (BULK Orchestra – GLEAT)

El Lindaman successfully defended the AJPW Jr World championship against Jonathan Gresham to reach his fourth title defense within All Japan. All new challengers have yet to come forward, but the GLEAT regular continues to rack up wins within the promotion. Also, the AJPW TV Six-Man Tag Team championships are back within All Japan after last month, the team of SUWAMA, Maya Yuhiki, and Mayumi Ozaki wrestled the titles away from the DDT Pro team Eruption during the recent All Japan Korakuen Hall show.
