 Former All Japan Triple Crown champion and 2000 Carnival tournament winner Kenta Kobashi came out on top in the main event of Pro Wrestling NOAH's 'Great Voyage' pay-per-view today in Tokyo.

A sellout crowd of 12,000 fans in Tokyo's Ariake Colosseum saw Kobashi defeat rival Jun Akiyama in 35:58 using his signature Burning Hammer move.

Akiyama defeated Kobashi in the main event of NOAH's first pay-per-view back in August at Tokyo's Differ Ariake wrestling complex.

Booker Mitsuharu Misawa defeated Vader in 14:28 via pinfall following a running elbow smash. New Japan Pro Wrestling star Shin'ya Hashimoto made his NOAH debut defeating NOAH star Takao Omori in 6:32 with an avalanche brainbuster.

In another inter-promotional match, FMW's Kudo Fuyuki & Tetsuhiro Kuroda defeated the NOAH team of Tamon Honda & Naomichi Marufuji to win the FMW's WEW Tag Titles.

In other results: Yoshihiro Takayama defeated Akira Taue; Yoshinari Ogawa & Daisuke Ikeda defeated Masashi Aoyagi & Akitoshi Saito; Kentaro Shiga, Yoshinobu Kanemaru & Takeshi Morishima defeated Masao Inoue, Takeshi Rikioh & Takashi Sugiura; Haruka Eigen, Jun Izumida & Satoru Asako defeated Rusher Kimura, Mitsuo Momota & Makoto Hashi and Tsuyoshi Kikuchi & Kenta Kobayashi defeated Scorpio (formerly 2 Cold Scorpio) & Kishin Kawabata.

The show will air on pay-per-view on Japan's Fighting TV Samurai channel on a tape delayed basis today and be repeated on Christmas Day.
