    Wrestle Kingdom 15 in Tokyo Dome 1/4/21 & 1/5/21

    For the second year in a row Wrestle Kingdom will be a 2 night event.


    By virtue of winning the 30th G1 Climax Kota Ibushi is the number 1 contender heading into Wrestle Kingdom.

    So just reading tea leaves here Naito vs Ibushi and Okada vs Ospreay are locks to happen here. If they can get Moxley into the country then it's likely he wrestles Tanahashi. Depending on the angle they run with Bullet Club I can see Jay White vs EVIL happening here too. Probably Hiromu wins BOSJ and challenges for Jr Title because really what other option is there?

    Not sure beyond that.

    Ibushi has the potential to being recognized as one of the greatest wrestlers of the last 20 years if he can win the IWGP title. I've been following his career since he was a scrawny 20 year old in DDT where his finisher was simply a fucking dropkick.

    Well looks like the first two matches are settled

    Kazuchika Okada has accepted the challenge by Will Ospreay for a match at Wrestle Kingdom
    Jay White defeated Kota Ibushi for the right to challenge contract and will face Tetsuya Naito for the IWGP Double Championship

    I'm guessing AEW let Moxley over to Japan, pending quarantine rules, to drop the belt to KENTA?

    First night is surely going to be some form of White vs. Ibushi rematch with Ibushi getting the shot back for the Naito match on night 2. Career on the line? If not, Ibushi heel turn at the BOSJ finale on Tanahashi? They're a bit limited on options this year.

    Sounds like the original plan for the big hook for the two nights before covid was Jericho and Ospreay were going to be together attacking Okada and Okada would wrestle each of them one of the nights. Maybe they changed that to Ibushi having to get his shot back night one and getting it night two.

    Jay White is officially getting a title shot on 1/5

    At the Press Conference Tetsuya Naito challenged Kota Ibushi to a match on 1/4.
