KENTA is over with a dozen of school fangirls, and that's it. Of course, this is an obvious exaggeration, but you got my point. Unless NOAH's touring plans are high school gyms and kindergardens, this is bad idea.

Well, you'd be surprised, because Japs aren't buying into "Juniors over Hewikis" stuff. Shima's already lost a ton of his drawing abilities since his Wild II and post-ROH days, imagine what happens if a midget called KENTA defeats him for the big one. Sheeeit, even Jun Akiyama lost some of his mojo after Ogawa embarrassed him.
There's a reason why Liger or Kanemoto never went out there (major titles), it's just too risky. "Being over" is a very tricky thing. NOAH is playing with fire, IMO, it could be Marufuji 2006 case all over again, but NOAH was hot back then at least.

Honestly, this is by far the best option possible, if they really want KENTA as the Champ.
