Seiki Yoshioka, who is one of the top Jr Heavyweights in Pro Wrestling NOAH, will be leaving the promotion at the end of the year.
Back on September 24, it was reported here on Bodyslam.net that Yoshioka had decided to take a break from NOAH at the end of October 2023 which would have lasted until the end of 2023. Yoshioka made the decision to take the break as he was working on a “new challenge”.
Pro Wrestling NOAH announced today that Yoshioka has decided to terminate his contract all together at the end of 2023. Yoshioka is taking on that new challenge and stated it would be difficult for him to remain with NOAH full time with this new challenge ahead. It has not been confirmed what that new challenge entails.
Seiki Yoshioka had been with Pro Wrestling NOAH since 2020. He is a former GHC Jr Heavyweight and GHC Jr Heavyweight Tag Team Champion. His final match for NOAH was on October 28th as he teamed with Shuji Kondo, Ninja Mack, Alejandro & TERRY YAKI as they defeated Atsushi Kotoge, Hi69, Hajime Ohara, Extreme Tiger & Junta Miyawaki. Yoshioka pinned Miyawaki following a Crash Driver to get the win in his final match.
