Yuji Nagata adds another successful defence of his AJPW Triple Crown Heavyweight Championship (V3). He defeated Yuma Anzai in the main event of All Japan Pro Wrestling “Dynamite Series 2023 – New Age MANIAx” on June 17 at Ota Ward General Gymnasium in Tokyo. Nagata won the match by pinning the ‘super rookie’ (21:06) with his finisher the Backdrop Hold following a High Kick to retain the title.
After the match, one half of the AJPW World Tag Team Champions Yuma Aoyagi stepped into the ring to declare himself as the next challenger. Nagata decided to hold his response to the challenge and instead told Aoyagi that he would make a decision after Nagata’s self-produced “BLUE JUSTICE XII” at the Sakura Civic Gymnasium in Chiba on June 18.
At the Blue Justice show Yuma Aoyagi will be on the opposing team to Nagata in the stacked 8-Man Tag Team main event.
