Powell’s POV: The notable first round matches include Kazuchika Okada vs. Jay White, Will Ospreay vs. Shingo Takagi, and Kota Ibushi vs. Zack Sabre Jr. The winner of the 32-man single elimination tournament will earn the right to challenge Tetsuya Naito for the IWGP Heavyweight and IWGP Intercontinental Championship at the Sakura Genesis event on March 31.
