The third night of WrestleKingdom 16 took place earlier today, with the theme being Pro Wrestling NOAH vs. New Japan Pro Wrestling. A series of ten main card matches and one pre-show match was featured, with a thrilling main event of arguably each promotion’s top stars going against one another, Kazuchika Okada & Hiroshi Tanahashi vs. Keiji Muto & Kaito Kiyomiya.
In the end, New Japan would come out on top with 6 victories, 4 losses, and one draw. As mentioned, NJPW’s KENTA was supposed to be a part of the event in a six-man tag match, however, due to a dislocated left hip, a broken nose, tendon damage to his finger, and severe lacerations to his back, he was unable to compete.
