Ahead of the highly anticipated KOPW 2023 bout between SHO and Taichi in Kobe on September 24th, fans have the opportunity to vote on the match rules. This exciting development has generated a buzz within the professional wrestling community, as it allows fans to have a direct impact on the outcome of the match.
Taichi, a member of the infamous HOUSE OF TORTURE, has put forward a proposal for a Seconds Handcuffed Match. If this rule is chosen, members of HOUSE OF TORTURE will be handcuffed to members of Just Five Guys throughout the bout, effectively preventing any interference. This stipulation adds an extra layer of excitement and ensures a fair contest between the two competitors.
On the other hand, SHO has suggested a 10 Minute Guaranteed Decision Match. Under this rule, if the ten-minute time limit is reached, the match will be automatically awarded to SHO. Furthermore, Taichi will be prohibited from utilizing his devastating move, the Black Mephisto. This rule not only adds a sense of urgency to the match but also levels the playing field by limiting Taichi’s arsenal.
SHO has also hinted at the possibility of additional rules being implemented during the match. He mentioned that these rules may be introduced due to the weight difference between him and Taichi or as circumstances demand. One such rule, at SHO’s request, is that Taichi will be forbidden from executing his signature move, the Dangerous Backdrop. This restriction ensures the safety and well-being of both competitors.
If you’re a fan of professional wrestling and want to have a say in the outcome of this epic showdown between SHO and Taichi, make sure to cast your vote.
