During a press conference to promote ‘Wrestle Kingdom 12’ in the Tokyo Dome, the main event was announced, according to WrestlingInc.

Following the press conference, the main event for NJPW ‘Wrestle Kingdom 12’ is official. On January 4 next year, IWGP Heavyweight Champion Kazuchika Okada will meet the winner of this year’s G1 Climax, Tetsuya Naito.

This is scheduled to be Okada’s fourth main event at ‘Wrestle Kingdom’ and the first for Naito. There is a lot riding on this match, though Naito is said by many (including ourselves) to be a great choice for challenger.

Naito had the following to say:

“I think with the ability I have, and the influence I’ve attained, it’s the natural place for me. “You heard it in the reaction last night, and the reactions all over the country. In NJPW, and Japanese wrestling in general, Wrestle Kingdom is the biggest event, and there’s nobody better for that main event than Tetsuya Naito and Los Ingobernables De Japon.”

We reported yesterday what Okada thought about Los Ingobernables De Japon. You can find his comments here.

We highly suggest checking out the press conference itself if you’re interested, which you can view below. It is great!
