NJPW Wrestle Grand Slam starts early Sunday morning at 3 am ET/12 am PT from the Tokyo Dome in Tokyo, Japan. Join Wrestling Inc. for complete live coverage of the show!
As of this writing, Kota Ibushi is still set to challenge IWPG World Heavyweight Champion Shingo Takagi in the show’s main event. Ibushi has missed the last couple shows due to aspiration pneumonia. At today’s Summer Struggle in Nagoya event, Hiroshi Tanahashi defeated KENTA and cut a post-match promo where he said with Wrestle Grand Slam’s main event still uncertain, he’s ready to step up, if needed.
UPDATE: Tanahashi will replace Ibushi in the main event.
