However, this year, Wrestle Kingdom 14 is extending an extra night Night 2 will take place on January 5.
Kota Ibushi recently commented on his desire to not only win the IWGP Heavyweight Championship on 1/4 but the IWGP Intercontinental Championship the following night.
Kota has also stated that he will be defending his world championship opportunity against KENTA and EVIL as we stood men defeated him during the G1 Climax:
“Of course I accept and will use this (Wrestle Kingdom) contract. But I have one proposal. We have events in the Tokyo Dome on January 4 and 5, but I still have an attachment to the IWGP Intercontinental Championship. How about, if I win the Heavyweight Championship on January 4 and then challenge for the Intercontinental Championship on January 5? Whoever it may be. I will, of course, defend this right to challenge against KENTA and EVIL who beat me during the G1. That’s it, that’s my suggestion.”
