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.
One of the other big Championship matches on display will see Taiji Ishimori defend his IWGP Junior Heavyweight Championship against Hiromu Takahashi. Takahashi earned the opportunity to face Ishimori by defeating El Phantasmo at Night 1 of Wrestle Kingdom yesterday.
NJPW1972.com hyped the match as follows: “If one thing is not in Ishimori’s corner on January 5, it’s history; the IWGP Junior Heavyweight Championship has changed hands every Wrestle Kingdom since 2014. Yet with big match competitive experience, and more importantly a fresh and rested body, the champion seems to be in the strongest spot, as with semi main event status, his title gets its biggest spotlight in Tokyo Dome history.”
