More New Japan stars wrestling in California
from Josh Edlow:
As we get closer and closer, the card is coming together quite nicely. In addition to the first defense of the IWGP Intercontinental title, New Japan star Kushida will challenge whomever is the SWF Champion on August 26th. The SWF Championship will be defended 10 days earlier when WWE Tough Enough Alum AJ Kirsch (tumbleweed) challenges “The Champion of Champions” Dave Dutra for the title. More details about this event are available at www.sacramentowrestling.com
You may recall AJ Kirsch was the man who wowed Tough Enough judges with a promo (including The Rock) before ultimately being eliminated from the competition. Since that time AJ Kirsch has been all over the states working independents. He has received call backs from both WWE and TNA since that time and is simply waiting for his big break.
