NJPW Reveals This Week’s ‘Road To Tokyo Dome’ Cards; Okada vs Gedo, Golden Lovers Headline, Shingo Takagi & More


With the World Tag League in the books and Wrestle Kingdom 13 fast approaching, New Japan Pro Wrestling has announced the complete match cards for this week’s two big Road to TOKYO DOME events at Korakuen Hall.

These will be the last two shows before WK13, made up of mostly tag team matches (and a few interesting singles bouts) that will preview most of the major matches taking place at the Tokyo Dome.

The first night will see Kazuchika Okada finally get his hands on his former friend and manager Gedo, as well as Shingo Takagi’s first singles match in a NJPW ring. Night two will be headlined by the Golden Lovers, Kenny Omega and Kota Ibushi, taking on Hiroshi Tanahashi and Will Ospreay.

Both events will air live on New Japan World at 4:30 AM ET with English commentary.
