Pro Wrestling Noah (PW Noah or Noah) is an Japanese professional wrestling company founded in 2000 by Mitsuharu Misawa.[1] It was founded in 2000 after Misawa left All Japan Pro Wrestling because he did not like the direction Giant Baba's widow Motoko Baba was putting the company in.[1]

On June 13, 2009, Misawa was in a tag team match where he teamed with Go Shiozaki against Akitoshi Saito and Bison Smith. After Misawa took a belly to back suplex from Saito, he lost consciousness and was taken to a hospital where he was pronounced dead at 10:10 p.m. JST from to spinal damage.[2]

Akira Taue was named as Misawa's successor and the new President of Pro Wrestling Noah on June 27, 2009.[3]
