Last night in Yokohama Buntai, Kento Miyahara defeated Jun Saito to win the prestigious tournament for the first time since 2019 in All Japan Pro Wrestling. The Fukuoka native will challenge Yuma Anzai for the Triple Crown championship later this month in Korakuen Hall on May 29th, fans will be rocking for this one.

Miyahara won the A Block by beating Davey Boy Smith Jr. en route to outlasting one-half of the former AJPW World tag team champion Jun Saito in the finale.

The Champion Carnival field this year included SUWAMA, Hideki Suzuki, Yuma Aoyagi, Davey Boy Smith J.r, Cyrus, current Triple Crown champion Yuma Anzai, Hartley Jackson & Kuroshio TOKYO Japan among others.

The in-ring output was really good and a few standout matches throughout the tournament like Yuma Aoyagi vs Shotaro Ashino and Yuma Anzai vs Ryuki Honda just to name a few. The promotion seems to be regrouping after the odd run that was known as Katsuhiko Nakajima, putting Anzai out front with the World championship was well deserved and he should hold it till the year ends.

Rising HAYATO retained the AJPW Jr World championship against Kaz Hayashi on the undercard.
