Power Struggle in Osaka Full card :

The event will be live-streaming on NJPW World :

The final card has been signed for what promises to be an explosive struggle for power in Osaka on November 5. The show has been sold out for weeks, but you can catch all the action, with English commentary, on!

In the main event, Intercontinental Champion Hiroshi Tanahashi meets the challenge of Kota Ibushi. The Ace’s third title defense will be against the man who beat him during this summer’s G1 Climax. The tour leading up to Power Struggle has seen Tanahashi and Ibushi tear into one another up and down Japan, and Osaka will see their feud reach a new level of intensity.

Freshly signed in the semi main event spot is a battle for the IWGP US Championship. Kenny Omega takes on Beretta, as the former Roppongi Vice member seeks his first heavyweight gold in New Japan.

On October 29, Beretta laid down the surprise challenge to Omega. In response, Omega accepted the challenge to ‘kill time’ on the road to Wrestle Kingdom in the Tokyo Dome. Yet Beretta’s string of victories since turning heavyweight prove he isn’t to be taken lightly. Will Omega cement himself as the self proclaimed ‘sumo yokozuna’ of New Japan? Or will one Dudebuster be enough for Beretta to score a landmark upset?

In the seventh match, the freshly crowned IWGP Junior Heavyweight Champion Will Ospreay meets Marty Scurll. On October 9, Ospreay finally vanquished KUSHIDA on the fifth time of asking to seize his first Junior Heavyweight title. It was a dream come true for Ospreay, but Scurll looks to wake the champion up. The Villain declared that the three certainties in life are death, taxes, and Marty Scurll defeating Will Ospreay, and Scurll’s win over Ospreay in this year’s Best of the Super Juniors would support that claim. If Scurll’s form against his countryman continues, there will be a new champion.

Rounding out the title matches to take place on November 5 is Toru Yano trying to take Minoru Suzuki’s NEVER Championship- or perhaps it’s the other way around? After a King of Pro Wrestling tag match resulted in a countout loss for the NEVER Champion, Yano heaped insult on injury for Suzuki by making off with his championship belt. An incensed Suzuki vowed to tie up the master thief, leading to a Bullrope Deathmatch. With both men tied to one another, this will be one rope Yano can’t use to call for a break.

In the fifth match, a ten man tag with Wrestle Kingdom implications will see a preview of the Tokyo Dome main event on January 4. IWGP champion Kazuchika Okada will lead a CHAOS team of Hiroki Goto, YOSHI-HASHI, Tomohiro Ishii and Gedo. They will face Los Ingobernables De Japon in the form of EVIL, SANADA, Hiromu Takahashi, BUSHI and Okada’s next IWGP title challenger Tetsuya Naito.

In the fourth bout of the evening, the Super Junior Tag Team tournament will reach its climax. SHO and YOH, Roppongi 3K have proven dominant since bursting onto the scene in Ryogoku at King of Pro Wrestling. The new IWGP Junior Tag Champions beat a game Hirai Kawato and KUSHIDA in the tournament opener before coming out on top of Hiromu Takahashi and BUSHI in what was a brutal and bloody test of the champions’ mettle.

They face the Super 69 team of ACH and Taguchi. The fun loving new combination had far from a nice time in the quarter and semi finals of the tournament, but still managed to give a licking to the two Suzuki Gun teams standing in their way. Taguchi seems to have made a smooth transition from his Funky Future former partner Ricochet to ACH, while the high flying American has done a Super job in absorbing Taguchi’s coaching knowledge. Who will prove themselves to be the best junior tag team in New Japan?

The second and third matches at Power Struggle will see New Japan loyalists lock horns with outsider factions. Hiroyoshi Tenzan, Satoshi Kojima and Togi Makabe will face the Bullet Club’s Cody, Yujiro Takahashi and Chase Owens. Meanwhile KUSHIDA, Tiger Mask, Jushin Thunder Liger, Juice Robinson and Young Lion Hirai Kawato will face Zack Sabre Junior, Yoshinobu Kanemaru, Taichi, TAKA Michinoku and El Desperado of Suzuki Gun.

Getting Power Struggle started with the biggest possible bang, the Young Bucks will return to Japan to take on Titan and Dragon Lee. There will be no cease or desisting one sweet international clash of elite high fliers.

That’s not all, as a special preshow match will see the much lauded Muscle Beast, Katsuya Kitamura take on David Finlay. Kitamura seems to be outgrowing his Young Lion status, but Finlay will seek to use his position as a dojo leader to put Kitamura in his place.
