At a press conference earlier today in Tokyo, Japan held by Wrestle-1, it was announced that Seiya Sanada has officially signed a contract with TNA as we noted earlier this morning here on the website. Sanada had started an indefinite excursion with TNA, beginning at the Lockdown PPV in March. Sanada went on to win the TNA X-Division Title, but recently lost it to Austin Aries in a match that will be seen on this week’s 7/10 TNA Impact Wrestling.
Sanada will still make appearances in Japan for Wrestle-1 with the new contract signed with TNA. Sanada lost a match to the Great Muta at yesterday’s 7/6 Wrestle-1 show at Sumo Hall in Tokyo.
