AXS TV will air a special three-hour presentation of Wrestle Kingdom 12 this Saturday, beginning at 8/7c. The show will feature commentary from WWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross and UFC icon Josh Barnett, and will focus on its three championship main events: Kazuchika Okada vs. Tetsuya Naito for the IWGP Heavyweight Championship, Kenny Omega vs. Chris Jericho for the IWGP U.S. Heavyweight Championship, and Hiroshi Tanahashi vs. Jay White for the IWGP Intercontinental Championship.
You can check out the incredible video package for the highly anticipated “Alpha vs. Omega” bout featured above, as well as comments from Okada and Naito down below.
The three-hour Wrestle Kingdom 12 special will cap off an eight hour marathon of NJPW content on AXS TV this weekend, featuring some of the best matches in 2017 including the G1 Special in Long Beach, the G1 Finals between Omega and Naito, as well as encores of both NJPW King of Pro Wrestling and NJPW Power Struggle.
AXS TV will then continue its coverage of Wrestle Kingdom 12 over the course of five hour-long episodes in its usual time slot, beginning Friday, January 12th at 8/7c. All three championship matches covered in Saturday’s three-hour long special will receive encore presentations during that time as well.
