Wrestle Kingdom 17 will include a rematch between Pro Wrestling NOAH and NJPW Wrestle Kingdom 17 Night 2, and the latter organization has now released the whole card for the second night of the event.
Wrestle Kingdom in 2022 was spread across three nights, with the final night seeing a conflict between NJPW and Pro Wrestling NOAH for the title of most dominant wrestling brand. Kazuchika Okada and Hiroshi Tanahashi defeated Keiji Mutoh and Kaito Kiyomiya in the main event that evening. Tanahashi was Kazuchika’s partner in the victory.
After Okada successfully retook the IWGP World Heavyweight Championship from Jay White on the first night of Wrestle Kingdom 17 in the Tokyo Dome on January 4, the card for night 2 on January 21 has a flavour of NOAH vs NJPW all over again. This will be the second time the two promotions will face off against one another.
This time around, on the other hand, there will be five singles bouts in which the members of NOAH stable KONGO will compete against the members of Los Ingobernables de Japon. After the event in the Tokyo Dome, KONGO intervened in LIJ, ultimately leading to these showdowns.
