WCA AA Evolution Cup: Night 2

It’s Zeus on the opening call of night 2, doing the honors for Ground Zero. As the lights of the arena focus on Zeus’ shining head, he praises the efforts of the Ground Zero team, whose competitors are all leading the pack after night 1 and offers a challenge to the other brands to match their fighting spirit. Zeus leads the crowd in an opening chant of “wasshoi!” to encourage tonight’s competitors.

Full Throttle #4: Keep your friends close

It’s an unseasonably warm day and a heated atmosphere for the fans packed into Chiba Blue Field this afternoon for the second block of the Triple Torque trios championship. The show starts off with Toi Kojima leading out the freshly debuted rookies, Full Throttle’s ‘sparks’, Ryota Hashimoto and Yuki Tanizaki. Both dressed in Full Throttle t-shirts and bright red trunks, Yuki looks the more nervous of the two, as they flank the smiling Kojima. 

Full Throttle #3: Let it snow (or not)

Full Throttle are in Shizuoka for this, the follow up to the dramatic conclusion of ALL OR NOTHING. Here to welcome the crowd is GM Toi Kojima, and Special Advisor Satoshi Kojima. Toi makes the opening address, which is uncharacteristically emotional for the start of a show as he expresses his gratitude to Kojima, to World Class Alliance and the Full Throttle fans for supporting the promotion. Toi has to pause to collect himself as he thanks the crowd for believing in him and promises to continue to make them proud. Special Advisor Kojima has to take over the opening call duty, but not before putting his arm around the emotional Toi and giving him a pat on the back that makes Toi stagger slightly.
