For those who don't know, Wrestle Kingdom is New Japan Pro Wrestling's Wrestlemania. And after the string of great PPVs recently, this event is probably going to be a must watch.
Here's the card so far.
1. IWGP Jr. Heavyweight Title - 3WAY Match: Prince Devitt © vs. Low Ki vs. Kota Ibushi
2. Special Singles Match: Togi Makabe vs. Katsuyori Shibata
3. IWGP Intercontinental Title: Shinsuke Nakamura © vs. Kazushi Sakuraba
4. IWGP Heavyweight Title: Hiroshi Tanahashi © vs. Kazuchika Okada
Like every WK, there will be plenty more matches, with wrestlers from other promotions, like AJPW, NOAH, CMLL, and of course, DDT.
I like how it's shaping up so far. You don't see Triple Threat matches happen very often in New Japan, but I trust that Low Ki, Ibushi, and Devitt won't disappoint.
The Laughter7 matches (aka matches two and three) are going to be chaotic. Shibata and Sakuraba have been making their matches short and stiff, but they aren't up against rookies and well, Inoue.
They are messing with Makabe and Swagsuke. The big leagues.
And the main event has been nearly a year in the making. The tie-breaking title bout between Tanahashi and Okada. They've traded wins, and have run amok on the entire roster. Okada worked his ass off to not only win G1 Climax, NJPW's annual league-style tournament, but to keep this title shot until WK.
But on January 4, the waiting ends. It's time to see if the New Generation has truly come, or if Tanahashi will reign supreme.
And with Laughter7 (Shibata and Sakuraba) on the prowl, will the winner of this main event be the only thing stopping the former MMA-fighters from conquering New Japan Pro Wrestling?
Personally, I can't wait. This is my Wrestlemania.
