Full cards revealed for NJPW Summer Struggle in Sapporo

NJPW has announced the full cards for both nights of Summer Struggle in Sapporo. 

Already announced, an IWGP Junior Heavyweight Championship match will headline night one, as El Desperado defends against Taiji Ishimori. On night two, Tetsuya Naito and SANADA will challenge Dangerous Tekkers (Taichi & Zack Sabre Jr.) for the IWGP Heavyweight Tag Team Championship. 

A series of tags will fill out the undercards, with those matches potentially pointing to future plans for singles programs. 

Most notably, Kazuchika Okada and Jeff Cobb will be on opposite sides of tag matches on both nights. Also, following Friday's show-closing angle where EVIL and Dick Togo attacked Tomohiro Ishii, EVIL and Ishii find themselves on opposite sides in tag matches on both nights as well.
