The following matches are advertised for the New Japan Pro Wrestling King of Pro Wrestling event that will be held on Monday in Tokyo, Japan.

-Kenny Omega vs. Kota Ibushi vs. Cody for the IWGP Heavyweight Championship

-Hiroshi Tanahashi vs. Jay White for the contract for an IWGP Heavyweight Championship match at Wrestle Kingdom.

-Kushida vs. Marty Scurll for the vacant IWGP Jr. Hvt. Championship.

-Evil vs. Zack Sabre Jr.

-Sho, Yoh, Toru Yano, and Kazuchika Okada vs. Tetsuya Naito, Sanada, Bushi, and a partner.

-Will Ospreay, Hirooki Goto, Tomohiro Ishii vs. Takashi Iizuka, Taichi, and Minoru Suzuki.

-The Young Bucks, Hangman Page, and Chase Owens vs. Taiji Ishimori, Tama Tonga, Tanga Loa, and Bad Luck Fale.

-Ttomoaki Honma and Togi Makabe vs. Juice Robinson and Toa Henare.

-El Desperado and Yoshinobu Kanemaru vs. Tiger Mask and Jushin Liger for the IWGP Jr. Hvt. Tag Titles.

Powell’s POV: It’s a rare Triple Threat for the IWGP Heavyweight Championship. While that won’t please everyone, it does look like a really fun match on paper. The event will stream live on New Japan World and I should have a review of at least the top matches available after the event.
