Sir Mitch Says: I’m knew something like this would happen eventually! Pro Wrestling Noah was purchased by Japenese tech company LIDET at the start of the year with plans to rebuild the promotion from the ground up so it could be seen as competition to New Japan again as well as draw more eyes from outside Japan onto their product. This new partnership with an Indy promotion like MLW that’s seen strong, steady growth over the last two years is obviously part of those plans!
