5 Matches NJPW could book after Wrestle Kingdom 14
#4 KENTA vs Tetsuya Naito- IWGP Intercontinental and Heavyweight Championships
Ticking off another obvious option from my list, as I feel that it is just a matter of time before New Japan Pro Wrestling officially confirms a match between the Double Champion Tetsuya Naito and Bullet Club sensation KENTA as the main event of one of the New Beginning shows.
At Wrestle Kingdom 14, Naito shocked the world when he defeated Kazuchika Okada to win the IWGP Heavyweight Championship. Having already beaten Jay White for the IWGP IC Championship, the leader of Los Ingobernables de Japon was riding at an all-time career-high as he finally got his hands on two of New Japan's most prestigious belts at the same time.
However, in the final segment of the night, Naito was attacked by KENTA, as the former WWE star set up a future match between him and Naito and it remains to be seen when NJPW will book the pair in a Double Title match.Published 07 Jan 2020, 06:49 IST
