Since the inception of IGF, the NWA has played a pivotal role with the wrestling promotion, although not officially a member IGF has used many notable names in the NWA and for GENOME 15 at the JCB Hall in Tokyo on April 28th, will be no different.

NWA Heritage Heavyweight Champion, Sawada will be taking on NWA ZERO1 Heavyweight Champion Ryouji Sai. Neither title is on the line, but this match will certainly have World Championship Ranking implications as a loss for Sai should result in Sawada replacing him in the Top Ten. A victory for Sai could catapult him even higher to the NWA Top Ten.

Former ZERO1 Heavyweight Champion Shinjiro Othani will team with the red hot Daichi Hashimoto (son of NWA Hall of Famer Shinya Hashimoto) to take on Yoshiaki Fujiwara and Minoru.

Also on the card is the NWA Korean Heavyweight Champion “The Beast” Bob Sapp taking on Masayoshi Kakuntani in a IGF Kickboxing Rules Match. Plus Tatsumi Fujinami will take on Big Van Vader and so much more.
