NJPW News: Full confirmed match card for upcoming NJPW: G1 Specials in San Francisco
What's the story?
Following the revelation of the first set of matches for NJPW's G1 Specials in San Francisco, New Japan Pro Wrestling has now finally revealed the full match card for the upcoming G1 Specials.
In case you didn't know…
Earlier this month at the Osaka-jo Hall, Bullet Club’s Kenny Omega finally won the biggest achievement in his Professional Wrestling career when he defeated ‘The Rainmaker’ Kazuchika Okada in an astonishing 2 out of 3 falls match to win the IWGP Heavyweight Championship for the very first time in his career.
Meanwhile, on the other hand, Omega's fellow BC stablemate Cody Rhodes also currently holds a victory over Omega after besting the latter at this year's ROH: Supercard of Honor.
And this rivalry between the two men has now reached its final point as both Omega and Cody will look to settle their issues at this year's G1 Specials in the USA.
