#2: Beijing 2008 Medalist

The WVR PR said in an interview that the reason the Beijing 2008 medalist won’t participate at the January 4th event is because there is a big Wrestling event in the beginning of 2009. After that is finished, he will enter SENGOKU.

    It’s a bit of an info here. Do you have some guesses about who this Beijing medalist could be?

  2. January 2, 2009 at 2:01 pm

    I have no idea. Unless someone knows which big wrestling event takes place in the beginning of 2009.

    New Japan has the annual show on January 4 in Tokyo Dome. Maybe this is the big wrestling event. I will search for other possibilities though.

  4. January 2, 2009 at 2:54 pm

    I think he meant an Amateur Wrestling event, not Pro Wrestling.

    All Japan has it’s own show but I don’t think that’s it. It’s most likely New Japan unless the event which WVR PR mentioned isn’t actually at the beggining of 2009.

    Ahh crap. It’s logical though. My bad. So we can assume that the mysterious Beijing medalist is a wrestler. Not Izumi nor other judoka most likely.

  7. January 2, 2009 at 3:07 pm

    Yeah, I think it’s a wrestler. Because the interviewer then talked about wrestlers can turn pro and PR talked about FILA and stuff like that.

    Only two Japanese men took medals and they are in the lower weight classes.

    Tomohiro Matsunaga and Kenichi Yumoto. Interesting indeed. Yumoto could be possible for FW division but with Matsunaga I don’t know. Overall, quite intriguing.

    It could also be Georgy Gogshelidze. After all he was already signed by WVR.

  10. January 2, 2009 at 3:24 pm

    Yeah, it’s possible, but I think he would’ve said his name if it was Georgy. He said that they might show a VTR of the medalist at the event on the 4th and they have already announced Georgy on the big screen before, so I don’t know…

    If so we must wait and see 🙂

    This show is going to do a hilariously bad rating. Like, wow, Sengoku. Really?
