A press conference was held today as the 60th Triple Crown Heavyweight Champion Kento Miyahara met with his next opponent in Dylan James. This will mark the first ever challenge for the belt for James though not his first chance at a singles belt in Japan as he is a former ZERO1 World Heavyweight Champion. Let alone him being 1/2 of the current World Tag Champions along with Ryoji Sai. Which him and Sai are set to defend the belts on June 3 against TAJIRI and KAI. Miyahara is coming off of his first defense against the Champion Carnival 2018 winner in Naomichi Marufuji and seeks to now try and outdo his previous run with the belt. James though is eager for the upcoming title matches as he aims to follow in the footsteps of the foreigners who came before him like Stan Hansen and Terry Gordy.

James was then joined by his tag partner Ryoji Sai as they discussed the upcoming World Tag challenge TAJIRI and Ryoji Sai on June 3 in Kobe. The champions seek to not only defend their belts but to also exact some revenge as they have found themselves on the wrong end of the challengers tricks and tactics. Sai stated that the unlikely duo have proven to be a crafty team, but he and James continue to get stronger each time they are in the ring. That they aim to no longer suffer anymore shame and prove themselves as a top tier team in the promotion. That will of course come against a team that will do nearly anything to win the titles themselves.

Then before Yuma Aoyagi is set to return to the ring on June 5, it was announced that him and Naoya Nomura will be challenging Jun Akiyama and Yuji Nagata for the Asia Tag belts on June 12 at the Korakuen Hall. Nomura and Aoyagi were originally set to defend the Asia Tag belts against Akiyama and Nagata back on February 3 of this year, but due to Aoyagi suffering an ankle injury the month before they were forced to vacate the belts. The young duo look to overcome the veteran team and reclaim the belts the belts that they never directly lost.
