From Osaka to Malta: Shigehiro Irie Challenges Adam Envy’s Reign at Carnival Clash

Published: 19/01/2024

Fresh off his groundbreaking victory against former WWE Superstar Scotty 2 Hotty at Fall Brawl, PWM Champion Adam Envy is poised to extend his triumphant title reign as he prepares to face the formidable 20-year Japanese veteran, Shigehiro Irie, on Saturday, February 3rd, at Carnival Clash.

Hailing from Osaka, Irie has carved out a distinguished career with DDT Pro Wrestling in Tokyo, Japan, and has showcased his skills on international stages, including memorable appearances with New Japan Pro Wrestling and Progress Wrestling in the UK. Notably, Irie faced the current WWE Intercontinental Champion, then known as Walter, for the Progress World Championship in 2018.

As Envy gears up for this title defense, the stakes are higher than ever. Having recently formed an alliance with the ruthless Owen Blanco and taking the promising Sean Ludwig Jr under their wing, Envy is determined to secure another championship retention by any means necessary. The clash with Irie promises to be a battle of epic proportions, with both competitors evenly matched in skill and tenacity. However, Irie must remain vigilant throughout the match, as Envy’s newfound allies pose a looming threat of interference, adding an extra layer of complexity to what is already shaping up to be a hard-fought and unpredictable encounter at Carnival Clash.
