Update of Pro Wrestling NOAH Global League Tournament!

I got word of Pro Wrestling NOAH Global League and they are posting every day of the Global League schedule on their Facebook page. In my last blog, I mention about that Chris Hero and Colt Cabana are going to be in it. I found out which blocks the guys are at. Chris will be in block A while Colt will be in block B. I know from last year, Chris was in block B and Colt was in block A, so, this year is really different. I notice from their Facebook posts that they described Colt Cabana as Serious but sometimes funny, which I do refer Colt as the Funny man, mostly because he does comedy and Chikara on occasions (back then), but I know Colt is serious after reading about Colt wrestling against Adam Pearce in a seven series of matches over the National Wrestling Alliance World Championship. As for Chris, the post on the NOAH Facebook says Rolling Elbow with Heart and Soul. That's is mostly true. You can say, the nickname Knockout Artist, was mostly been used from his time in WWE and mostly in the independent scene is what you can describe Chris these days as he is a young indy legend. Chris has been wrestling in Japan for nearly most of his career besides Germany, UK, and the United States.

Despite I only know little of Japanese, I do have a reliable source of the schedule in English. The source is Puroresu Spirit and they provided news and schedules of all Japanese wrestling promotions. Here is the schedule of Chris Hero and Colt Cabana for the Pro Wrestling NOAH Global League tournament and non-tournament matches:

November 6th (Tournament matches):

Block A: Chris Hero vs. Naomichi Marufuji
Block B: Colt Cabana vs. Maybach Taniguchi

The finals will happen on November 8th. No word on if either Chris and/or Colt will be in any tag team match. It depends on what will happen during the tournament if either man will make it to the finals. If you understand that both Chris and Colt along with most of the Pro Wrestling NOAH roster are trying to stop Suzuki-Gun, a heel stable from New Japan Pro Wrestling, has turn NOAH upside down and three of it's members has the titles, including the man who created the stable, Minoru Suzuki, who is the GHC World Champion and Killer Elite Squad (Lance Archer and Davey Boy Smith Jr), who are the GHC World Tag Team Champions. So, depends on this tournament, whoever wins, gets a title shot against Suzuki, unless Suzuki wins the tournament. Speaking about the tournament, Pro Wrestling NOAH has a video up on their YouTube channel of Colt Cabana cutting a promo for the tournament:
