Biography

Pro Wrestling NOAH is a Japanese professional wrestling promotion, founded in 2000. It was formed by former All Japan Pro Wrestling stars led by former champion Mitsuharu Misawa. The “NOAH” in the name alludes to the Biblical story of Noah, in which the people and animals in the ark survive the flood and make a new beginning in the world, a story which was seen as a parallel to the wrestlers’ departure from All Japan. NOAH’s promotional symbol, an ark with a dove holding an olive branch, refers to this.

Pro Wrestling NOAH is essentially a continuation of All Japan’s promotional system in the 1990s, with a slight leeway to allow for wrestlers from other promotions, something previous All Japan promoter Giant Baba had not allowed. It also features a strong junior heavyweight division, which All Japan had been relatively lacking in the 1990s due to lack of pushes for the younger stars, such as Yoshinobu Kanemaru, KENTA and Naomichi Marufuji, who have quickly become NOAH’s junior aces.

Like New Japan Pro Wrestling, NOAH recognizes singles and tag team titles for both heavyweight and junior heavyweight contenders. The titles are known as the GHC (Global Honored Crown) titles. Despite not being considered the #1 promotion in Japan due to New Japan’s history, merchandise sales and television ratings, since 2005 NOAH has been able to outdo their rivals in many ways. NOAH has been able to outdraw NJPW in several key places, such as the Tokyo Dome.
