Okada accepts Ospreay's challenge for NJPW Wrestle Kingdom 15


Kazuchika Okada has accepted Will Ospreay's challenge for a match at Wrestle Kingdom 15.

The challenge took place after tonight’s match at Power Struggle, where Okada defeated O-Khan via referee stoppage with his money clip submission.

Ospreay, who was watching the match ringside, entered the ring after the match and confronted Okada. He said he used Okada to get more popular, and it worked. He eventually said that he wanted to end Okada’s career and challenged him to a match at Wrestle Kingdom 15. Okada accepted.

The two have been feuding since last month, when Ospreay turned on Okada following their G1 match, attacking him and leaving him laying with the running elbow to the back of the head. Since then, he has formed a new stable in NJPW called The Empire, which consists of himself, Great O-Khan, and Bea Preistley.

Wrestle Kingdom 15 is set to take place on both January 4 and 5.
