Yuko Miyato, the former UWF wrestler, is the current booker of Antonio Inoki’s IGF (Inoki Genome Federation) promotion. He has booked the following line-up for the promotion’s February 22nd show in Tokyo at JCB Hall:

– Kensuke Sasaki & Katsuhiko Nakajima vs. Naoya Ogawa & Atsushi Sawada
– Minowaman vs. Necro Butcher
– Erik Hammer vs. Daniel Puder
– Ultimo Dragon vs. TBA
– Plus: Bob Sapp, The Predator, Josh Barnett, & Yoshihiro Takayama

At the WWE Hall of Fame party in Tokyo on Tuesday, Antonio Inoki told the press that he has invited Asashoryu to attend the 2/22 show in Tokyo. Asashoryu will soon receive a retirement payoff from the Japan Sumo Association. He may also face police questioning soon regarding the incident that forced him to retire from Sumo in the first place.

The theme this year for Inoki is that it is his 50th year in the fight business.

    Minowaman vs. Necro Butcher sounds like the first five star match of 2010, for sure.
