Pro Wrestling SEM is the junior associate of Pro-Wrestling NOAH, the name coming from the biblical figure Shem, the eldest son of Noah. SEM is headed by Naomichi Marufuji and KENTA, acting as coach for the rookie competitors. Mitsuharu Misawa's inspiration for the venture came from the German Westside Xtreme Wrestling promotion, where he wrestled in March 2005. The presentation and close proximity of the fans to the ring impressed Misawa enough to recreate them, thus matches in SEM take place on a pink ring mat and the audience seats are limited to a few hundred, so that all fans can sit close to the ring. The events of SEM usually take place in the Differ Ariake Arena in Tokyo.
