KENTA Accepts Juice Robinson's NJPW Wrestle Kingdom 15 Challenge
The show is only a couple of weeks away...
During the World Tag League 2020 final, KENTA cost FinJuice the victory after he drilled Juice Robinson with the US Heavyweight Championship Right To Challenge briefcase.
Robinson and the former GHC Heavyweight Champion have continued to feud since December 11 on the Road To Tokyo Dome shows and Juice recently challenged KENTA to a match for the briefcase at Wrestle Kingdom 15.
The briefcase holder was initially reluctant to put it on the line and stated he is only interested in facing Jon Moxley, but he accepted Robinson's challenge earlier today because he sees the match as an opportunity to take on the fans.
If the match will take place on night one or night two is currently unknown.
