Four-way IWGP United States title match announced for NJPW Capital Collision


A four-way match for the IWGP United States Championship has been announced for NJPW’s Capital Collision event on May 14 in Washington, D.C..

Hiroshi Tanahashi will defend the United States title against Juice Robinson, Will Ospreay, and Jon Moxley following events that took place at Windy City Riot and Wrestling Dontaku. 

Ospreay, who was set to face Tanahashi at Wrestling Dontaku until being sidelined with COVID-19, challenged Tanahashi on social media.

At the end of Windy City Riot last month, Moxley challenged Tanahashi, saying he would face Tanahashi if he had to drag him to D.C. by his ponytail. Robinson returned to Japan at Wrestling Dontaku, attacking Tanahashi after he won the championship by defeating Tomohiro Ishii. Robinson was then shown wearing the Bullet Club logo, confirming he had joined the group.

Here are the matches announced so far for Capital Collision:

  • Hiroshi Tanahashi vs. Will Ospreay vs. Jon Moxley vs. Juice Robinson for the IWGP United States title
  • Kazuchika Okada & Trent Beretta vs. Jay White & Hikuleo
  • Eddie Kingston vs. Tomohiro Ishii
  • Brody King vs. Minoru Suzuki
