NJPW reveals full card for King of Pro Wrestling
The full card has been released for next week’s King of Pro Wrestling.
As expected, the main event will feature Kenny Omega defending the IWGP title in a triple threat match against Cody and Kota Ibushi, which was set up this past Sunday at Fighting Spirit Unleashed. In the co-main event, Hiroshi Tanahashi will defend his WrestleKingdom 13 briefcase against Jay White.
The finals of the Jr. heavyweight title tournament will have KUSHIDA taking on Marty Scurll for the vacant IWGP Jr. title. The Jr. tag team titles will be on the line, as champions Desperado and Yoshinobu Kanemaru will defend against Jushin Thunder Liger and Tiger Mask in the opening contest.
Meanwhile, a new member of Los Ingobernables de Japon will make their debut at the show, after a YouTube video featuring LIJ indicated that they would be bringing in a new pareja. The mystery partner will team with Naito, SANADA and BUSHI in an eight man tag against CHAOS.
A special singles match between EVIL and Zack Sabre Jr. has been set after Sabre has repeatedly gotten the better of EVIL on a number of occasions during recent tours. Another eight man tag will also go down, pitting members of the Bullet Club against the Bullet Club OG’s.
