The two men involved will be whoever wins the IWGP World Championship match between Kazuchika Okada and Kota Ibushi, and whoever wins the Intercontinental Championship match between Jay White and Tetsuya Naito on night one of Wrestle Kingdom 14:
The main event of the second night at Wrestle Kingdom 14 on January 5 has been set, as a historic double championship match will determine the first-ever dual IWGP Heavyweight and Intercontinental Champion.
The first dual-title match to take place in the Tokyo Dome since Shinsuke Nakamura unified the IWGP and NWF Championships in 2004, the match will put an end to months of speculation as Kota Ibushi, Tetsuya Naito, Jay White and Kazuchika Okada all vie to determine just who is the ‘strongest and the best’ in professional wrestling today. The winners of January 4’s IWGP Intercontinental and Heavyweight Championships will collide in one winner-take-all match that will see one man’s name etched in the history books forever; a main event fitting of the ‘pinnacle of strength and birthplace of legend’.
