Jake Lee entered NOAH on 1st January 2023 an outsider, entering in the same costume and to the same entrance theme he used just weeks before in AJPW. Those elements haven’t changed but Jake’s hands (or at least his gloves) are now, quite literally, dyed the same green as the company whose highest belt he now holds.
When people think of modern day All Japan wrestlers it’s a pretty good bet that the first wrestler that comes to mind is Kento Miyahara. He is the ace after all, so it makes sense. Other wrestlers could be Suwama, Jake Lee and maybe even Shuji Ishikawa. But another name is emerging as a popular All Japan wrestler. Someone who it looks like the Triple Crown Championship is in his not-so-distant future. And that person is Yuma Aoyagi.
Jake Lee finally reached the top of All Japan Pro Wrestling at Champions Night on the 26th of June 2021. Holding all three belts that make up the original Triple Crown Heavyweight Championship and the current Triple Crown he ended the show standing tall. It took a while, and it was a very rough journey to get there but he finally did it.
