Satoshi Kojima Thanks Kenoh For Teaming With Him At Monday Magic, Kenoh Responds That Wanted Hiroyoshi Tenzan

On the November 27th edition of Pro Wrestling NOAH’s Monday Magic episode, the GHC Heavyweight Champion Kenoh teamed up with NJPW legend Satoshi Kojima as they defeated Manabu Soya & Go Shiozaki.

Kenoh and Satoshi Kojima have history together that at times has been less than unpleasant. Kenoh defeated Kojima for the GHC Heavyweight Title back in July 2022.

Following their victory over Soya and Shiozaki, Kenoh and Kojima shook hands and then gave a victory pose much to the delight of the crowd. It appeared that this may have been a “let’s bury the hatchet” situation between the two superstars but that may not be the case.

During the post match comments backstage, Satoshi Kojima thanked Kenoh for requesting him to be his partner for the match. Kenoh responded by asking Kojima what he was talking about and then said that he did not request Kojima but requested Hiroyoshi Tenzan to be his partner. Satoshi Kojima was not happy about that and went on a rant as Kenoh walked off:

 Are you serious? What is that? What is this? Is this how it ends? Even though I won in style? Kenoh! Come back! Someone get on your smartphone and call Kenoh. Shit. Whatever. Life is long, and things like this happen. There are good things, bad things, hard times, fun times, and things that Kenoh doesn’t know about, and in the midst of all this, living like this as a professional wrestler is everything, and I’m still going to shine in the pro wrestling ring. Let’s go, m*********er!
