Current KO-D Openweight Champion Dick Togo was in America during the weekend for one of the biggest events on the indy wrestling calander, the Chikara King Of Trios tournament. Togo travelled to Philadelphia with fellow Japanese stars The Great Sasuke & Jinsei Shinzaki to enter the tournament and represent Michinoku Pro. They made it to the semi-finals, beating two highly hyped teams along the way. On Night 1 Team M-Pro defeated Team Minnesota in the main event, which marked Sean Waltman returning to his roots and becoming the 1-2-3 Kid once again. Togo claimed the pinfall over Darin Corbin to send his team through to Night 2. There, Team M-Pro went over Mike Quackenbush, Jigsaw & Manami Toyota. Reports have it that Togo had no problem beating up joshi legend Toyota when they were in the ring together. But just when it looked like the tournament was there for the taking, Team M-Pro were defeated by Chikara’s most hated Rudos, Team F.I.S.T. DVDs of the event will be available from Smart Mark Video very soon.
