History Made!

Last night was a historic day in Puroresu as for the first time in history, New Japan Pro Wrestling's IWGP Heavyweight Title was put on the line against All Japan Pro Wrestling's Triple Crown in the first ever double title match! This is about as big as when WWE decided to crown the first undisputed champion by unifying the WWE & WCW world titles, only in this case neither company owns the other so the outcome was more unpredictable! And when all was said and done, after FIFTY-NINE MINUTES AND FORTY-NINE SECONDS, Satoshi Kojima of All Japan Pro Wrestling won what was said to be an incredible war of atrician over his former tag partner and reigning New Japan Pro Wrestling IWGP champion, Hiroyoshi Tenzan to become the first ever 4-Crown champion! After three long years in AJPW, Kojima has finally arisen to the top of the wrestling world, especially since he also toppled Toshiaki Kawada for the Triple Crown just FOUR DAYS prior!
Unfortunately, this leaves alot of doubt for Tenzan fans as the man just can't seem to get a break when it comes to world title matches. Hopefully he takes time out to rest his injured back and only return later down the line to again take his rightful place at the top of NJPW.
Congratulations to Kojima! And may his reign be a long one!
