Pro Wrestling NOAH, DDT to merge into single company

DDT and Pro Wrestling NOAH will soon merge into one promotion.

A press conference was held this morning to announce the merger of the two companies into one promotion, which will be called CyberFight. The promotion will be named after DDT and NOAH's parent company, CyberAgent. These changes will go into effect on September 1.

Both promotions, as well as Tokyo Joshi Pro Wrestling and GanPro, will continue to operate as separate brands within the promotion. Sanshiro Takagi, who recently took over as president of Pro Wrestling NOAH in January, will serve as president of the new promotion with NOAH star Naomichi Marufuji and DDT star Akito serving as EVPs. 

In the press conference, Takagi stressed that the in-ring content of both promotions will remain the same. He said that the move to merge the companies is a result of the COVID-19 pandemic and the need to streamline costs.

Takagi also said that one of the goals of the new company is to run a Tokyo Dome event.
