NJPW Event Cards for November & December 2016

Seven matches have been added to the previously announced four matches to flesh out the entirety of the big event. Added to the show will be the NEVER Openweight belt in defense as Katsuyori Shibata defends against his both rival and friend Hirooki Goto. The two have competed in both against one another in fierce and heated contests in the past and following the “World Tag League” the two looked to have rekindled their former aggression against one another. The IWGP Tag belts will be decided as the “Guerrillas of Destiny” defend against the winners of the “World Tag League 2016” in “Great Bash Heel”. This will also mark a rematch between both teams from the final match of the league.

Ring of Honor will be represented again this year as the new ROH Champion Kyle O’Reilly will be defending the belt against a former champion in Adam Cole. The newest member of BULLET CLUB, Cody Rhodes, now dubbed, “The American Nightmare” Cody will be making his debut in the New Japan ring against another former WWE/NXT wrestler in Juice Robinson.

The NEVER 6 Man Tag belts will be in defense in a 4 team gauntlet match. As all four major groups in New Japan will be represented with only one team being able to leave as the champions. Then Tiger Mask W will once more be appearing in the New Japan ring as he will be taking on Tiger The Dark in a special single match. Then the show will once more feature a pre-show battle royal to get the crowd ready for the big show.
