Two Inter-Promotional Matches Announced For CyberFight Festival

The first two matches for CyberFight’s Saitama Super Arena show have been announced, with both pitting wresters from DDT and Pro Wrestling NOAH against each other.

The event, dubbed CyberFight Festival 2021, will include representatives from each of CyberFight’s subsidiaries, which also include Tokyo Joshi Pro Wrestling and Ganbare.

The first match announced features graduates from each company’s respective training system squaring off in a six man tag team match.

Representing NOAH will be Kinya Okada, Yasutaka Yano and Junta Miyawaki who will be facing the DDT contingent of Keigo Nakamura, Yuki Iino and Toui Kojima.

Then four of each company’s biggest young stars will collide in an all-star tag team match as NOAH’s Kaito Kiyomiya, fresh from challenging for the GHC Heavyweight Championship, and Yoshiki Inamura will do battle with DDT’s Konosuke Takeshita and current DDT Universal Champion Yuki Ueno.

Takeshita and Ueno, who are both a part of the 37KAMINA stable, had both met Kiyomiya earlier in their respective careers and were each complimentary of the NOAH man’s skillset.

The quartet remained cordial throughout the press conference, stressing the importance of inter-promotional competition between DDT and NOAH.

CyberFight Festival 2021 will take place on Sunday, June 6th and will stream live on the Wrestle Universe subscription service.

We will be reporting on additional matches as they are added to the card.
