Ospreay returning for Tag League Finals, NJPW reveals full card

Will Ospreay will be returning to the ring at NJPW's World Tag League Finals.

NJPW has revealed the full card for Sunday's Tag League Finals, with Ospreay set to face Taichi in a NEVER Openweight Championship number one contender's match. NEVER Openweight Champion Hirooki Goto will be defending his title against Kota Ibushi on the show. A title change could set the stage for Ibushi vs. Ospreay at Wrestle Kingdom 13.

Ospreay was scheduled to challenge Taichi for the NEVER title at Power Struggle in November, but Ospreay suffered a rib injury at Revolution Pro Wrestling's Global Wars UK show on October 14 and has been out of action since. Goto instead faced Taichi at Power Struggle and won the title.

Tag matches round out the rest of the World Tag League Finals card, including Hiroshi Tanahashi, Juice Robinson, David Finlay & Ryusuke Taguchi vs. Kenny Omega, The Young Bucks & Marty Scurll. Kazuchika Okada, Toru Yano & KUSHIDA will be facing Jay White, Bad Luck Fale & Taiji Ishimori.
