The IWGP US Heavyweight title represents a new era for New Japan Pro-Wrestling. July’s G1 Special in USA played host to its inaugural tournament where some of New Japan’s strongest competitors fought for the right to be crowned its first champion.
On 9/24 in Kobe, Japan, the legacy continues as Kenny Omega, the first IWGP US Heavyweight Champion defends against a rising star:
Juice Robinson. Having suffered a surprise defeat at the hands of Juice in the G1 Climax 27 tournament, Kenny sees potential in the young Robinson.
A potential star, but more importantly: perhaps a potential threat…The time to prove who has the will of a champion is now!
Two of New Japan’s most talented foreign athletes head into a match that will shape the course of the IWGP US title legacy!
