Днешната пресконференция:




W-1 held a press conference before tomorrow’s Ryogoku Kokugikan show.

The show will be focused on Keiji Muto’s 30th anniversary as a pro-wrestler as he will be in the main event taking on the WRESTLE-1 champion Masayuki Kono. It is no secret that Muto has taken a step back from competing full-time since the formation of W-1, but he stated himself that tomorrow’s show will be a “blank slate” and he will be coming with everything he has to offer in the ring. Kono on the other hand stated that he is ready for his first defense of the belt as the first ever champion and he will not hold back. Tomorrow has a lot at stake in terms of Muto celebrating a milestone in the ring and Kono looking to set his own milestone by defeating his former mentor in the ring.

Alberto (Del Rio) came into the conference with an angry tone against Masakatsu Funaki. Alberto stated that he has a strong bloodline, a family, in the business of professional wrestling. Funaki though has no bloodline and is nothing special. Alberto stated that he is fighting for his lineage and aims to make sure Funaki learns to respect the way of his family.

The 3-Way match has been getting plenty of attention as well. Matt Hardy said it is an honor to be able to compete on this show and to be featured on a show with the icon Keiji Muto. He then took a shot at Sanada by calling him a green boy. TAJIRI agreed with Hardy. Sanada, the lone man in not having as much experience in America as his other two opponents, said that he has respect for what his two opponents have done, but it is his time to shine.

The men involved in the W-1 vs. TNA 6 Man Tag match came forward as the TNA team looks forward to once more standing tall at the Ryogoku Kokugikan. Kondo took offense to how the TNA team comes off and called them nothing more than a bunch of fools from America. The W-1 trio looks to finally put the TNA team in their place, but at the same time they know that the trio is known for their tricks and craftiness when it comes to winning matches.

Then the last match that got focused on during the press conference was between KAI and Masato Tanaka. Tanaka stated that he knows KAI has been asking for this match for some time now, but it is not his intention to be a stepping stone for the up-and-comer. He will not go easy on him in anyway. KAI understands completely that this is the one match that he wanted and is now receiving. He said he is ready for the match and, after failing to become W-1 champion, he aims to begin his upward path once more.
