The full card has been revealed for the 2022 New Japan Cup finals.

The show is taking place at Osaka-jo Hall overnight tonight and will air live on NJPW World starting at 1 a.m. Eastern time. It's being headlined by Tetsuya Naito vs. Zack Sabre Jr. in the New Japan Cup tournament finals.

Naito and Sabre both booked their spots in the finals with wins on Saturday. Naito knocked IWGP World Heavyweight Champion Kazuchika Okada out of the tournament, while Sabre defeated Shingo Takagi.

Seven other matches are set to take place on the New Japan Cup finals card. In the semi-main event, 68-year-old pro wrestling legend Tatsumi Fujinami will be in action as he teams with Strong Hearts (CIMA, T-Hawk & El Lindaman) against Okada, Hiroshi Tanahashi, Satoshi Kojima & Tiger Mask.

Fujinami also wrestled at NJPW's 50th Anniversary event earlier this month. Okada, Tanahashi & Fujinami defeated Minoru Suzuki, Sabre & Yoshiaki Fujiwara at that show.
