Wrestle Kingdom 10 is upon us, with the pre-show starting at the wee hours of 2 AM EST, and a 3 AM EST start time for the main show.
Wrestling Inc will bring you full, live coverage of the show on both Twitter, and here on the site, so be sure to come join our live viewing party. The event is headlined by yet another Hiroshi Tanahashi vs. Okada IWGP Heavyweight Title match, with Okada never having defeated Tanahashi at Wrestle Kingdom.
One of the major draws of the show is the first-time dream matchup between Bullet Club leader AJ Styles and IWGP Intercontinental Champion Shinsuke Nakamura. NJPW and Nakamura have made the Intercontinental title almost on par with the Heavyweight title, something AJ Styles spoke to us about last week.
AJ Styles isn't the only Bullet Club member seeking gold, as Kenny Omega will defend his IWGP Junior Heavyweight Title against KUSHIDA, and the combo of Karl Anderson and Luke Gallows defend their IWGP Tag Titles against Tomoaki Honma and Togi Makabe. We spoke to Karl Anderson at length about the event and the match, as well as the Bullet Club takeover. The team will also have opportunities at the IWGP Junior Heavyweight Tag Titles (Young Bucks) and the new NEVER Openweight 6-man tag titles (Bad Luck Fale, Takahashi, Tama Tonga)
If you're a fan of American wrestling, this show brings you more than enough to order, as ROH will be represented by World Champion Jay Lethal defending against Michael Elgin, who made a name for himself in Japan during last year's G1 Climax tournament. Lucha Underground's Prince Puma (Ricochet) will also team with Matt Sydal, taking on RPG Vice, Young Bucks and ReDRagon for the IWGP Junior Heavyweight Tag Titles.
