NWA Southern All-Star Wrestling management announced on Friday night that the NWA World Champion, Satoshi Kojima, would be headed to the SAW Mill.
Mike Sircy made the announcement at NWA SAW that he had received confirmation that Kojima will be headed to Nashville. Satoshi Kojima, who won the NWA World Heavyweight Championship from former champion Rob Conway in January 2014, will be defending his title on Friday, May 30, 2014. He is also one-half of the NWA World Tag Team champions with Hiroyoshi Tenzan. Kojima and Tenzan defeated the Iron Godz (Rob Conway and Jax Dane) at New Japan’s Pro Wrestling’s Invasion Attack on April 6, 2014.
As of press time, the opponent for Satoshi Kojima has not been announced. However, NWA SAW management has released that former NWA World Heavyweight Champion Rob Conway and his partner, former NWA World Tag Team Champion Jax Dane, will also be in the SAW Mill in Millersville, TN.
