In a world where Morishima draws 20 000 people and KENTA is what Yoshinari Ogawa changes his name to. In reality, however, it's the best option they have. Maybach isn't ready yet but he'll probably be the one who'll take the belt from KENTA if he gets it which he absolutely should. ANYONE else taking the belt would be stupid. Morishima's ran through everyone in the company, so dropping the belt to an outsider would be even more stupid. Might as well give those 500 fans that DO come to the arena a reason to return with their favourite guy winning the belt.
