Wrestle Kingdom 14: Night One
Kaz and I were able to discuss Night One of Wrestle Kingdom 14 via Skype. I apologize if there any issues with the sound quality. We were originally going to discuss this the week prior to recording but I drove all the way from the studio (about 20 miles away) and I forgot the key to get in because I was using my girlfriend’s car.
This year, Wrestle Kingdom is taking place over two nights on January 4th and 5th, 2020. Night One is stacked with FIVE title matches and a bunch of multi-man matches that NJPW just loves to do. The most important matches are the first two matches of the Double Gold Dash. The winners of the main and co-main events will face each other to leave with both the IWGP Heavyweight and Intercontinental Championships. It’s important to note that the final match of the Double Gold Dash is not being called a unification match.

Kazuchika Okada (c) vs. Kota Ibushi (G1 Climax Winner)
