0

NJPW sent out the following press release on Wednesday, announcing that Satoshi Kojima will face KENTA at Wrestle Kingdom 15. KENTA’s IWGP US Right To Challenge briefcase will be on the line during the match.

Originally, KENTA was set to face Juice Robinson. We reported earlier today here on eWn that Robinson was pulled from the match after he suffered a fractured orbital bone.

Here is the official announcement:

After issuing a challenge in Korakuen Hall, December 23 saw Juice Robinson vs KENTA made official for January 4 2021, with the IWGP US Right to Challenge briefcase at stake. Unfortunately, hours after the announcement, it was learned that Robinson had sustained a fractured left orbital bone and would not be able to compete.


Stepping up in his place will be Satoshi Kojima. Saying to KENTA at Korakuen Hall that ‘this aging 50 year old can still go like hell’, Kojima struck with a Koji Cutter to KENTA on December 23, throwing his hat into the US briefcase ring. Could Satoshi Kojima shock KENTA in the Tokyo Dome January 4? Find out live and in English on NJPW World or FITE!
