Naomichi Marufuji was on merchandise duty today and signed autographs. Crowd atmosphere was said to be good and enthusiastic. People bought tickets for future events, and one fan told a story about wearing a Noah t-shirt to a convenience store and having a conversation about it with the clerk, he said this is unusual for the provences as all anyone ever talks about is New Japan.
"One Night Cruise" is actually nothing to do with physically getting on any ship, its more in keeping with Noah's nautically themed tour names. Noah ran an event here in June 2017, and it has become an annual thing.
Just like the heavyweights earlier in the year, the juniors came out and stood in the ring before the two trophies that would be presented to the winning team (last year it was YO-HEY & HAYATA, there is a lot of fan support that they should win it again this year).
This years teams are:
Hi69 & Minoru Tanaka
Daisuke Harada & Tadasuke
HAYATA & YO-HEY
Seiya Morohashi & LEONA
Hidaka & Sugawara (ZERO-1)
Ricky Marvin & El Hijo del Pantera
Ricky Marvin has been away from Noah for about three years now, he was a regular feature during the "Golden Era", and often portrayed masked wrestler, Mushiking Joker.
This is El Hijo del Pantera's first time in Noah (although when in Wrestle Classic he did compete in cards with Noah wrestlers on them).
As the teams left the ring, it was noticed that there seemed to be friction between YO-HEY & Daisuke Harada. It was also noticed that HAYATA has dyed his hair peroxide blonde (which he can carry off a lot better than Tadasuke).

WINNER: Hi69 with the Stuka Splash on Junta Miyawaki (16 minutes and 15 seconds)

At the end of the event it was revealed that a small earthquake had struck in Chiba prefecture, fortunately there was no Tsunami warning or damage (although the emergency alarm did sound). Some people reported feeling the tremors, others not at all. There is terrible flooding and mudslides in Hiroshima however due to the typhoon rain, and tornadoes have also been reported. Tokyo airport felt the tremors (on a smaller scale) and as a result shut two runways for emergency checks.
Bar the two events coming up in July with Noah participation ("Holy War" on the 8th July, and "Power Hall" on the 10th), Noah are next back with "Global Junior Tag League" on Sunday 15th July.
