Night 2 of New Japan Pro Wrestling’ Wrestle Kingdom 15 is now underway. The card for the second show of the event again has some massive Championship matches, including the now confirmed main event between Kota Ibushi and Jay White. That match will be contested for the IWGP Heavyweight & Intercontinental Championships.

Kota Ibushi earned the opportunity to face Jay White after defeating Tetsuya Naito at Night 1. With Ibushi winning the first match, he becomes the IWGP Heavyweight and Intercontinental Double Champion for the first time in his career.

Ibushi had previously earned the right to this match by winning the 2020 G1 Climax; however he subsequently lost to Jay White at Power Struggle 2020, meaning that officially he had lost the right to challenge for the belts at Wrestle Kingdom. Naito would however challenge Ibushi for a match on Night 1.
