NJPW reveals full Power Struggle card

Coming out of this year's G1 Climax, NJPW has revealed the card for their next major show.

Power Struggle will take place at the Edion Arena in Osaka, Japan on Saturday, November 7. The card features six singles matches.

The build to Wrestle Kingdom 15 will pick up with IWGP Heavyweight and IWGP Intercontinental Champion Tetsuya Naito defending both of his titles against EVIL in the main event of Power Struggle. In the semi-main event, G1 winner Kota Ibushi will defend his title shot contract against Jay White. The contract gives Ibushi the right to challenge for the IWGP Heavyweight and IWGP Intercontinental Championship in a double title match at Wrestle Kingdom 15.

It was announced during the G1 finals that Wrestle Kingdom 15 will again be a two-night event. It's being held at the Tokyo Dome on Monday, January 4 and Tuesday, January 5.

Also at Power Struggle, KENTA will defend his IWGP United States Heavyweight title shot contract against Hiroshi Tanahashi. KENTA won the title shot contract in NJPW's New Japan Cup USA tournament. Jon Moxley is currently the IWGP United States Heavyweight Champion. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, it isn't known when Moxley will be able to defend the title next.

Will Ospreay turned against Kazuchika Okada at the G1 A Block finals and is now in a stable with The Great O-Khan and Bea Priestley. Okada and Great O-Khan will face off at Power Struggle.
