Suwama Under the Knife. Suwama will undergo a cartilage removal operation on his right elbow tomorrow in Fujisawa City. Afte the Izumo show on 6/29, Suwama returned to the All Japan dojo saying that the pain he was experiencing was uncanny, as his arm has been bothering him since his match with Tanahashi in the Champion Carnival Finals on 4/9, with his match against Kensuke Sasaki on 4/29 only worsening the arm. The injury was diagnosed and Suwama had to inject anodyne before his first defense against Nishimura on 6/28. He will have surgery tomorrow and will need about one week off, however, Suwama plans on carrying out forcible participation for All Japan’s 7/7 Hachioji rally, saying that he wanted to show a pro-wrestler’s fine figure.

SUMMER ACTIONS SERIES Lineup with news on the Jr. Heavyweight League. PWF Chairman, Hiroshi Hase, announced one big match to his self-produced show which will close All Japan’s “2008 SUMMER ACTION SERIES” this year. It will be Taiyo Kea & Minoru Suzuki’s first defense of their newly won Tag Titles against Triple Crown champion, Suwama, and Osamu Nishimura! The show will be used to raise funds for the Iwate earthquake with Muto saying that an encouraging dream would be given through pro-wrestling on 8/3. Muto said that Suwama and Nishimura have gained a mutual respect for eachother post-6/28, but wanted to see just how much respect they will have, since Suwama will now have the opportunity to become a 5-Crown champion. Hase said that since the World Tag scene was digressing in some places, he wanted to put the match on a big stage in order to help revive what was once a booming field in pro-wrestling. Hase then finished by saying that he wanted everyone to come see hot fighting, and would be looking on feverishly to see if Suwama would be able to gain the 5-Crown achievement.

The Junior Singles League will also take place during the “SUMMER ACTION SERIES”. The league will be two blocks and will hold traditional league rules (30 minute time limits, same point system as always). No participants were released today, but should be coming within the next few days. The league will start on 7/20 and end on 8/3 in Ishikawa.All Japan youngmen KAI and T28 were on hand for today’s announcement of the “Junior Heavyweight Division League” blocks, where they found out they would be in seperate blocks.
