On a night with huge Wrestle Kingdom implications, many eyes on December 11 will be on The Elite’s return, Kota Ibushi, IWGP champion Kazuchika Okada or his Tokyo Dome challenger Tetsuya Naito. Yet the centrepiece of this all star Fukuoka night will be the World Tag League finals. 

The winners of groups A and B will face off to see who 2017’s best tag team will be. With no time limit, there must be a winner asserting tag team dominance. 

Underneath this explosive final is a preview of two title matches that will take place in the Tokyo Dome January 4 as Kazuchika Okada and Will Ospreay take on Tetsuya Naito and Hiromu Takahashi. Naito and Okada are set to headline at Wrestle Kingdom 12 for the IWGP Heavyweight Championship, and Takahashi and Ospreay making up half of the first ever four way for the IWGP Junior Heavyweight Championship. This spectacular tag team matchup will see all four men looking to make a statement ahead of the biggest show of the year. 

At Wrestle Kingdom 12, Kenny Omega looks set to take on the self proclaimed ‘Alpha of Professional Wrestling’ Chris Jericho. On December 11, he teams with the Young Bucks as the Elite take on Junior Heavyweight Tag Team Champions Roppongi 3K and coach Rocky Romero. 

Then, Kota Ibushi and KUSHIDA meet Cody and Marty Scurll. Scurll will defend his freshly won IWGP Junior Heavyweight Championship in the aforementioned Tokyo Dome four way, and opposite him will be one of his three challengers in the form of the Timesplitter, KUSHIDA. Meanwhile, after ROH champion Cody issued a cocky challenge to Kota Ibushi, what impact will these two make less than a month away from Wrestle Kingdom 12?

NJPW World will bring you all the action live and with English commentary as wheels hit the road to the Tokyo Dome on December 11. Don’t miss it! http://njpwworld.com/
