NWA France’s annual participation to the Japan Expo is usually met with the addition of world class talent to the event. This year is no different. As announced in the NWA France: ICWA Returns to Japan Expo article I posted earlier this week, Sugi is the big announced name for this years Catch portion of the Expo. In previous years the show had Metal Master and WWE’s Daniel Bryan. Now Sugi might be a well known name in the States his International Presence has been well documented. Sugi has competed in Japan with ZERO1, HUSTLE, Inoki Genome Federation, Michinoku Pro, Big Mouth Loud, and New Japan’s Lock Up Brand; The United States with Pro Wrestling Guerrilla, and recently in Mexico with AAA.
As The★ZEST he defeated Ozamu Namiguchi for the WWA Jr. Heavyweight Title and later as NOIZ defeated a second The★ZEST. The WWA Jr. Heavyweight Title was briefly recognized by ZERO1 as the disputed portion of the WWA from Mexico. Takuya Sugi has competed for several NWA affiliates over the years, but this will mark the first time he will compete in NWA France. French fans will get one heck of a show with Sugi on the card.
