NJPW Announces Card For Power Struggle 2020

The show is only a few weeks away...

New Japan Pro-Wrestling's next major event, Power Struggle, is scheduled to take place on November 7 at EDION Arena Osaka in Osaka, Japan. 

Following the G1 Climax 30 finals, NJPW announced the card for Power Struggle earlier today. 

In the main event, Tetsuya Naito will defend the IWGP Heavyweight Championship and IWGP Intercontinental Championship against EVIL. The two former friends have been feuding ever since The King Of Darkness turned on Los Ingobernables De Japon during the New Japan Cup. They have exchanged victories over the double titles since then and the two men will face off one more time after EVIL pinned Naito during the G1. 

Who the winner will face at Wrestle Kingdom 15 will also be determined as Kota Ibushi will defend his IWGP Heavyweight and Intercontinental Championship Right To Challenge Contract against Jay White. Switchblade had a place in the G1 finals in his grasp on Friday, but he was defeated by Tomohiro Ishii. This allowed Ibushi to win the A Block and The Golden Star vanquished SANADA after 35 minutes on Sunday to capture the contract. Ibushi didn't have long to celebrate, though, as White interrupted the contract holder and challenged him to a match at Power Struggle. 

Also announced for the event is KENTA vs. Hiroshi Tanahashi for the IWGP United States Heavyweight Championship Right To Challenge Contract, Kazuchika Okada vs. Great-O-Khan, Minoru Suzuki vs. Shingo Takagi for the NEVER Openweight Title and Toru Yano vs. Zack Sabre Jr. for the Provisional KOPW2020 Trophy 

Check out the card for Power Struggle below:
• Tetsuya Naito (c) vs. EVIL - IWGP Heavyweight Championship & IWGP Intercontinental Championship
• Kota Ibushi (c) vs. Jay White - IWGP Heavyweight Championship & IWGP Intercontinental Championship Right To Challenge Contract
