Last updated

The co-main event of Wrestle Kingdom 15 night 1 saw Kazuchika Okada take on Will Ospreay. The ‘Assassin’ Ospreay turned on Okada last year, leaving the CHAOS stable and forming The Empire with Bea Priestley and The Great-O-Khan. hyped the match with the following: “With the aid of Bea Priestley and Great-O-Khan, Ospreay defeated Okada in Ryogoku Sumo Hall, and set himself apart from CHAOS, forming THE EMPIRE. Having used Okada to elevate his stardom, Ospreay now seeks to defeat the Rainmaker and become the leader of a new generation in NJPW. With Okada’s reputation inside the Tokyo Dome a factor, that is a task easier said than done.”

Result: In what was somewhat of a shock, Kazuchika Okada took the win after hitting a sit-out tombstone piledriver followed by a Rainmaker.
