IWGP US & UK Championships, Moxley vs O-Khan, Loa vs Finlay
After the events of Royal Quest III on October 14, three more matches have been added to the lineup for Power Struggle on November 4.
Both the IWGP US and UK belts will be up for grabs when Shota Umino challenges Will Ospreay. After the Royal Quest main event, Ospreay threw out an open challenge for a ‘Japanese sexy b*tch’ to face him for the IWGP UK title. Umino felt that he fit the bill, but with feelings still sore from one year ago, where he lost to Ospreay in London, then Tokyo for the IWGP US Championship, the Roughneck wanted both belts to be on the line. Ospreay has felt like Umino’s white whale, but could an Osaka Shooter Shock be in the offing?
Great-O-Khan will go one on one with Jon Moxley. Ospreay was not quick to accept the challenge of Umino for Osaka, stating that as a condition of the title shot, O-Khan gets a singles match he has been looking for for quite some time. That means the Eliminator will go head to head with Umino’s mentor on November 4- after a year full of ups and downs, a win for O-Khan could mean huge things for him on the road to Wrestle Kingdom.
Meanwhile David Finlay will take on Tanga Loa in singles action. Less than one week after he lost the NEVER Openweight Championship to Tama Tonga in Ryogoku, Finlay was again reeling from a loss to Loa in tag competition in London. A frustrated and humiliated Finlay demanded this singles match to gain fast and full revenge, but could the Silverback beat the Rebel again?
