It didn't take long for New Japan Pro Wrestling legend Satoshi Kojima to make an impact in his new temporary home as in his first appearance on Impact Wrestling, he said three words and already has two matches lined up as a result.
During Violent By Design's promo Thursday, Kojima came out and got in Joe Doering's fact, simply saying "Against All Odds," the Saturday, June 12th special on Impact Plus. Later in the show, Doering accepted the challenge. Since debuting in Impact earlier this year, Doering is 2-0 in singles matches.
The two have competed three dozen times in their careers, all in All Japan Wrestling. Their last clash was in January 2010 when the then-Triple Crown Champion defeated Doering in a title defense.
Kojima will make his Impact in-ring debut next Thursday against Doering's stablemate in VBD, Deaner.
Against All Odds will be headlined by Impact World Champion Kenny Omega vs. Moose.
