NJPW adds KOPW 2021 Ranbo to Wrestle Grand Slam in Tokyo Dome


NJPW has added a Ranbo to the Wrestle Grand Slam in Tokyo Dome pre-show. 

Toru Yano will defend the provisional KOPW 2021 title in the match. To this point, Yano is the only officially announced participant.

Traditionally a part of the Wrestle Kingdom in Tokyo Dome shows, the Ranbo rules have participants enter at one-minute intervals. Eliminations then occur by pinfall, submission or being thrown over the top rope. 

Yano won the provisional KOPW title at Wrestle Kingdom 15 in January and has since defended it against Chase Owens in a strap match, and EVIL in a blindfold match. 

Shingo Takagi defending the IWGP World Heavyweight Championship against Kota Ibushi will be the Wrestle Grand Slam in Tokyo Dome main event.
