FCF in the SMASH title tournament

Posted: June 11, 2011 in Professional Wrestling

Japan’s fastest-rising pro wrestling promotion SMASH started their inaugural championship tournament on June 9th to crown both the first Men’s and Women’s Champion in company history.

In first round matches held at Tokyo’s Korakuen Hall on June 9th, Shinya Ishikawa of Big Japan Wrestling beat Yusuke Kodama, Akira Nogami beat Takashi Iizuka, “Japanese Buzzsaw” Tajiri beat Funaki, FCF representative Hajime Ohara bested his former sensei Ultimo Dragon and Japanese ring legend Genichiro Tenryu handed Michael Kovac his first defeat in The Land of the Rising Sun.

On July 15 SMASH will hold the continuation of their first round match-ups, and due to circumstances beyond our control, no one from Finland at FCF will be able to travel to SMASH.19 on July 15th to partake in the first round of competition.  To remedy this we at FCF have agreed with SMASH to hold an internal private tournament in Finland to determine FCF’s first round winner and representative who will go on directly to round two at SMASH.20 in August at Korakuen Hall.

Stay tuned for details, as the summer is just heating up at this point!
