Eddie Edwards Wins GHC Championship
This morning in the main event of the NOAH show at Korakuen Hall in Tokyo, Eddie Edwards defeated Katsuhiko Nakajima, ending Nakajima's 300+ day title reign and making Edwards the first gaijin to win the top championship in the history of the promotion.
This is a pretty huge deal for Edwards himself, and another big step in the in the right direction for the GFW/NOAH partnership. I'd love to see Edwards defend the title in a one-on-one match at Bound For Glory, preferably against Marufuji(which could be the best match in BFG history), and I'd love to see the match built up as a big deal; but I fear its too late to bring any of that to fruition. I would settle for at least seeing Edwards show up on Impact TV with the strap at some eventual point.
Anyone have thoughts? Do you expect to see GFW in the future make any attempt to capitalize on, or at least make note of, Eddie's big win- assuming that the reign isn't very shortlived?
Also Eddie, mostly regarded as a tag specialist, has now won the single's World title in ROH, Impact, and NOAH; all promotions that have existed for 15+ years now and still stand as three of the top promotions on the planet. Congrats to Edwards.
