Wrestle Kingdom Card

Night One

New Japan Rumble

Making its return on the first night of Wrestle Kingdom, we will see the members of the New Japan roster not currently slated for a match at the big event compete in a 30-man Rumble. We will see EVIL, BUSHI, Yujiro Takahashi, Bad Luck Fale, Chase Owens, Gedo, Jado, TAKA Michinoku, Taichi, DOUKI, Tomohiro Ishii, YOSHI-HASHI, Mikey Nicholls, Jeff Cobb, Amazing Red, Colt Cabana, Hiroyoshi Tenzan, Manabu Nakanishi, Satoshi Kojima, Tiger Mask, TJP, Toa Henare, Tomoaki Honma, Yuji Nagata, Alex Coughlin, Clark Conners, Karl Fredericks, Yota Tsuji, Yuyu Uemura and Michael Edwards compete in the bout, with all 30 men looking to score a victory on the biggest show of the NJPW calendar.

Shingo Takagi VS Minoru Suzuki

As SANADA and Zack Sabre Jr's tensions rose over the British Heavyweight championship, Minoru Suzuki and Shingo Takagi would do battle in multiple tag matches and would come out of every one at a dead lock. This would reach a fever pitch during Shingo and El Terrible's bout with Suzuki and Lance Archer in World Tag League, with Shingo and Suzuki unable to stop fighting each other and leaving the match to Archer and Terrible. Now, we see two of the hardest hitting stars in the company do battle at Wrestle Kingdom, with the rising Shingo Takagi looking to score a massive victory over the dangerous veteran, Minoru Suzuki.

Jon Moxley VS Lance Archer (c) (IWGP United States championship, Texas Deathmatch)

After scoring the vacant US title in a bout with Juice Robinson, Lance Archer defended his gold against David Finlay before a fantastic display alongside Suzuki during World Tag League. At the final night of WTL, we would see the return of the former US champion, Jon Moxley, who was forced to vacate the title months ago. Moxley would lay out both Archer and Suzuki with the Death Rider before issuing the challenge for the US title in a Texas Deathmatch.

Robbie Eagles VS El Phantasmo (c) (RevPro British Cruiserweight championship)

When El Phantasmo made his New Japan debut, he took the company by storm with victories over top level guys like Will Ospreay and a fantastic performance in the Best of the Super Juniors Tournament. However, the rise of ELP led to the fall of Robbie Eagles, who lost his place as Bullet Club member Taiji Ishimori's go-to partner. ELP and Ishimori would go on to become Junior Heavyweight tag team champions, but the repeated disrespect by ELP to Eagles would lead to Eagles leaving Bullet Club and aligning with Will Ospreay and CHAOS. Though the newly christened Birds of Prey failed to win Junior Tag League, Eagles will have his chance at revenge against Phantasmo for the RevPro British Cruiserweight championship.

FinJuice VS Guerrillas of Destiny (c) (IWGP Heavyweight Tag Team championship)

After Juice Robinson lost his United States championship to Jon Moxley, as well as both Juice and David Finlay failing to claim the gold in respective matches against Lance Archer, they would have an incredible display in World Tag League, scoring 26 out of 30 points and barely overcoming EVIL and SANADA in the finals to earn a title match with the Guerrillas of Destiny. Does the impressive reign of the Bullet Club duo continue, or will FinJuice finally claim tag team championship gold?

Hiromu Takahashi VS Will Ospreay (c) (IWGP Junior Heavyweight championship)

After a gruesome suplex from Ryu Lee, Junior Heavyweight champion Hiromu Takahashi would be forced to take over a year off from action and vacate the Junior Heavyweight title in the process. During this time, Will Ospreay would once again claim his spot at the top of the perch, ending Shingo Takagi's undefeated streak in the BOSJ finals before winning the title from Ryu Lee at Dominion. Ospreay would defend the gold against all comers, but at the Junior Tag League finals, Takahashi would made his triumphant return, challenging Ospreay to a match at Wrestle Kingdom for the title he never lost.

Tetsuya Naito VS Jay White (c) (IWGP Intercontinental championship)

After years of pursuing his goal of being the first ever man to hold both the Intercontinental and IWGP Heavyweight championship, Naito's hopes of accomplishing that goal seemed to fall apart at the last moment yet again, losing his match to Jay White in the G1 and falling just short of qualifying for the finals. Though White was unable to overcome Kota Ibushi in the G1 finals, he scored another victory over Naito soon after, this time for the Intercontinental championship. Now, Naito has a chance to reclaim his lost gold, and with the caveat that both the Intercontinental champion and the IWGP Heavyweight champion will do battle in the main event of Wrestle Kingdom night two for both titles, Naito's goal of being the first ever man to hold both titles is now or never. Will Naito earn the first of two victories he needs to accomplish his year long goal, or does White stop him at the finish line yet again and attempt to obtain the glory for himself?

Kota Ibushi VS Kazuchika Okada (c) (IWGP Heavyweight championship)

As the winners of the G1 Climax, Kota Ibushi has earned a massive title match with the IWGP Heavyweight champion Kazuchika Okada in the main event of Wrestle Kingdom. However, with WK now being a two night event, Ibushi and Okada's match will take place on the first night, with the winner going on to defend their IWGP Heavyweight championship in the main event of night two against the Intercontinental champion. Will Ibushi finally score his first taste of IWGP Heavyweight championship gold, or does the Rainmaker continue his stranglehold?

.

Night Two

Loser of White/Naito VS loser of Okada/Ibushi

Night two of Wrestle Kingdom will see the two men who don't walk away from night one with championship gold do battle in hopes of getting back on the winning track, potentially placing themselves at the front of the line for future title contendership.

Ryu Lee VS Jyushin "Thunder" Liger (Liger's Retirement Match)

Wrestle Kingdom will see Jyushin "Thunder" Liger call it a night on his career, and his challenger would make his presence known at the World Tag League finals in the form of the newly christened Ryu Lee. With Lee now a full-time member of the NJPW roster, Liger does battle with a man who must be considered the future of the Junior Heavyweight division. Will Liger score a victory in his final ever match, or does Lee claim the largest scalp possible in his full-time NJPW debut?

Hiroshi Tanahashi VS Chris Jericho (c) (AEW World championship)

After losing the IWGP Heavyweight championship at the beginning of the year to Jay White, Hiroshi Tanahashi embarked on his most disappointing year in recent New Japan history, with his least impressive G1 performance in nearly a decade. However, just as it seemed Tanahashi would have no plans for Wrestle Kingdom, the Painmaker Chris Jericho would rear his ugly head, challenging the Ace to a match at Wrestle Kingdom. At the World Tag League finals, Jericho would go the extra mile, looking to prove that AEW is the superior company over NJPW by defending the AEW world championship against the Ace of New Japan.

Roppongi 3K VS Toru Yano/Ryusuke Taguchi/Togi Makabe (c) (NEVER Six-Man Tag Team championship)

After the duo of Rocky Romero and Ryusuke Taguchi failed to win the Junior Tag League at the last hurdle, the two men would have a massive falling out, breaking up Team Coach Coach. As this happened, Roppongi 3K's SHO and YOH would make it all the way to the Junior Tag League finals, but they would fall to the Suzuki-Gun duo of El Desperado and Yoshinobu Kanemaru. Though Roppongi 3K's Wrestle Kingdom plans seemed to be in tumult after this, Rocky Romero would create a spot for the juniors. After the failings of Team Coach Coach, Rocky would go out of his way to criticize Ryusuke Taguchi for his lack of effort in making the NEVER Six-Man titles meaningful, also drawing the ire of Toru Yano and Togi Makabe. This falling out would cause Taguchi, Yano and Makabe to give Rocky Romero and Roppongi 3K a shot at the NEVER Six-Man tag titles at Wrestle Kingdom.

El Desperado/Yoshinobu Kanemaru VS Taiji Ishimori/El Phantasmo (c) (Junior Heavyweight Tag Team championship)

After El Desperado finally made his New Japan return, he and Suzuki-Gun member Kanemaru would run roughshod over Junior Tag League, winning their first ever Junior Tag League with a victory over Roppongi 3K in the finals. Will the Suzuki-Gun duo be able to reclaim their Junior Heavyweight tag titles, or does the Bullet Club tandem of Taiji Ishimori and El Phantasmo continue their strangehold over the Junior Tag Team division?

SANADA VS Zack Sabre Jr (c) (RevPro British Heavyweight championship)

After an incredible singles year for SANADA where he finally scored a singles victory over IWGP Heavyweight champion Kazuchika Okada in the G1, SANADA would draw the ire of Zack Sabre Jr after repeatedly pinning the British Heavyweight champion, both in the G1 and in multi-man tag matches. SANADA now has a huge opportunity to establish himself as a true top level singles competitor, while Zack Sabre Jr looks to continue his grasp on the British Heavyweight championship.

Hirooki Goto VS KENTA (c) (NEVER Openweight championship)

After KENTA made his New Japan debut alongside the retired Katsuyori Shibata, KENTA would have an impressive G1 display that ended in disappointing fashion with repeated losses at the end. This would lead to KENTA turning on Shibata and joining Bullet Club before winning the NEVER Openweight championship from Tomohiro Ishii. Now, Hirooki Goto looks to destroy KENTA and win the NEVER Openweight championship in the process in defense of Shibata. Will Goto get revenge in Shibata's honor, or is the Bullet Club backed KENTA just too good to be stopped?

Winner of Okada/Ibushi VS Winner of Naito/White (IWGP Heavyweight/Intercontinental championships)

Wrestle Kingdom's night two main event will see New Japan crown the first ever double champion for the top two singles titles in NJPW. After years of making this his goal, Tetsuya Naito failed to achieve this goal time and time again, and after beating Naito in the G1, Jay White would make that his goal as well. Kota Ibushi would then throw his name in the hat, and it would eventually be decided that the double gold dash would finally come to an end at Wrestle Kingdom 14, one way or another. Which of these four men will walk out with both titles?

Wrestle Kingdom Night One

 

New Japan Rumble

Wrestle Kingdom kicks off hot with the annual New Japan Rumble, a bout that will give the competitors who didn't make the rest of the card a chance to score a massive victory on the biggest stage. In a fun opener, we would see Tomohiro Ishii score the victory by last eliminating EVIL. Though Tomohiro Ishii had a relatively disappointing year, a victory to kick off Wrestle Kingdom is a good start for the Stone Pitbull, and this might be what he needs to get back on track. 

.

Shingo Takagi VS Minoru Suzuki

minoru-suzuki-and-shingo-takagi-compete-

Our next bout sees two of the hardest hitting men in NJPW do battle, as NJPW's hottest rising Heavyweight Shingo Takagi takes on Minoru Suzuki. In a highly physical clash, the bout would end in victory for Suzuki, who catches Shingo with a Gotch Piledriver and picks up the victory. Though the Suzuki-Gun leader has yet to claim the IWGP Heavyweight championship, an impressive victory over Shingo to kick off the year might be what Suzuki needs to finally bust down that wall.

Jon Moxley VS Lance Archer (United States Championship Texas Deathmatch)

NJPW-Wrestle-Kingdom-14-Lance-Archer-vs.

We kick off our six championship matches of the night with what's certain to be a brutal bout between Lance Archer and Jon Moxley for the United States championship. In a brutal, physical war, Lance Archer is able to score the victory over Moxley, putting away the Death Rider with the EBD Claw and retaining his United States championship.

Robbie Eagles VS El Phantasmo (RevPro British Cruiserweight Championship)

maxresdefault.jpg

Our next bout sees a battle of a former Bullet Club member and the British Cruiserweight champion, El Phantasmo. Robbie Eagles looks to get revenge against the man who was primarily to blame for his exit from Bullet Club. In a fantastic match, Eagles would manage to score what has to be considered an upset, catching ELP with the Warp 4.5 despite interference from Taiji Ishimori, scoring the victory over El Phantasmo and causing the first title change of Wrestle Kingdom.

FinJuice VS Guerrillas of Destiny (IWGP Heavyweight Tag Team Championship)

Next, we have our only tag team match of the night, as the World Tag League 2019 winner David Finlay and Juice Robinson look to end the impressive reign of the Guerrillas of Destiny. In a fantastic match rife with Bullet Club interference, FinJuice would be able to rise above the distractions, with Juice catching Tanga Loa with the Pulp Friction and winning his team the IWGP Heavyweight tag team titles.

Hiromu Takahashi VS Will Ospreay (IWGP Junior Heavyweight Championship)

x1080

In our final match before the Double Gold Dash bouts, we see the returning Hiromu Takahashi look to reclaim the IWGP Junior Heavyweight championship from Will Ospreay. In an amazing return match, a form we've grown used to from Will Ospreay, Hiromu Takahashi would score the victory in his return, putting Ospreay away with the Time Bomb. Hiromu's return is an incredibly successful one, and after over a year on the shelf, he now looks to continue his reign atop the perch of the Junior Heavyweight division.

Tetsuya Naito VS Jay White (IWGP Intercontinental Championship)

x1080

In the first of two matches to determine the Wrestle Kingdom main event, we see the Switchblade Jay White defend the Intercontinental championship against Tetsuya Naito. In a fantastic match, yet again filled to the brim with Bullet Club interference, Tetsuya Naito would not be denied on this night, putting away Naito with Destino and earning one final chance at becoming the first ever IWGP Intercontinental and Heavyweight champion.

Kota Ibushi VS Kazuchika Okada (IWGP Heavyweight Championship)

The main event of Wrestle Kingdom night one sees the IWGP Heavyweight champion Kazuchika Okada defend against the G1 Climax 29 winner, Kota Ibushi. In a phenomenal bout, Okada is able to score his victory back against Ibushi, catching the Golden Star with a Rainmaker and retaining the IWGP Heavyweight championship. With this victory, the Wrestle Kingdom night two main event is set, as Kazuchika Okada will do battle against Tetsuya Naito in a champion VS champion bout.

Wrestle Kingdom Night Two

 

Roppongi 3K VS Toru Yano/Ryusuke Taguchi/Togi Makabe (NEVER Openweight Six-Man Tag Team Championships)

450?cb=20171117034853340?cb=20190130183054

Night two of Wrestle Kingdom kicks off with the NEVER Openweight Six-Man titles, as Toru Yano, Ryusuke Taguchi and Togi Makabe defend their gold against Roppongi 3K. This feud began as a friendship between Rocky Romero and Ryusuke Taguchi that would fall apart after their failure to win Junior Tag League, and devolved into Rocky Romero criticizing Taguchi and his partners for the total lack of regard they've shown the six-man tag titles. Ultimately, Roppongi 3K would prove Rocky correct, as SHO and YOH score the victory with a 3K on Toru Yano. Roppongi 3K are the new NEVER Openweight Six-Man tag team champions, and Wrestle Kingdom starts off hot with a title change.

Kota Ibushi VS Jay White

081208.jpg

After both men suffered disappointing losses to Kazuchika Okada and Tetsuya Naito respectively on night one, Kota Ibushi and Jay White do battle here tonight, looking to bounce back strong and keep their names in the title picture. In a fantastic bout, Jay White would score the victory over Ibushi, catching Ibushi with the Blade Runner and getting his victory back after their G1 Finals clash.

Ryu Lee VS Jyushin "Thunder" Liger

340?cb=20170529163721155194871250561221.jpg

Next, we see the final ever match for Jyushin "Thunder" Liger, who faces former IWGP Junior Heavyweight champion Ryu Lee, his first match as a full-time NJPW star. In an emotional clash, Ryu Lee would put Liger away with Desnucadora, scoring a massive victory over the legend and ending Liger's career with a loss. Both men would shake hands after the match, and the crowd would erupt into chants of "thank you, Liger," but he leaves quickly, looking to save the sadness for tomorrow night at New Year's Dash.

Suzuki-Gun VS Bullet Club (IWGP Junior Heavyweight Tag Team Titles)

tumblr_p59o4pVbRW1ti2dqho1_540.pnglatest?cb=20190812112800

After an emotional final match for Jyushin "Thunder" Liger, we move to out Junior Heavyweight tag team title match, as the 2019 Junior Tag League winners El Desperado and Yoshinobu Kanemaru look to wrest the gold from Taiji Ishimori and El Phantasmo. In a fun match filled with interference and chicanery from both sides, the Suzuki-Gun duo would score the victory, with El Desperado putting away El Phantasmo with a Pinche Loco, making this the second title change of the night.

Hirooki Goto VS KENTA (Never Openweight Championship)

954fff7f6d0a2f5e49219cb539c5347e.jpgkenta-mox.jpg

Our next bout sees Hirooki Goto look to claim the NEVER Openweight championship from KENTA in honor of his retired friend, Katsuyori Shibata. In a hard-hitting clash, Goto would manage to do just that, catching KENTA with the GTR and becoming NEVER Openweight champion yet again. After the match, Goto would celebrate with Shibata, finally getting revenge on KENTA for his betrayal and defection to Bullet Club.

SANADA VS Zack Sabre Jr. (RevPro British Heavyweight Championship)

njc_0318_visual-664x373.jpg

After a stiff, hard-hitting clash, we move into what is certain to be a technical masterclass, as SANADA looks to claim the RevPro British Heavyweight championship from Sack Sabre Jr. Ultimately, despite repeated victories over ZSJ in recent months, SANADA would be no match for ZSJ on this night, falling to a roll-up directly after an Octopus Stretch and making ZSJ the first man to retain his title on night two of Wrestle Kingdom.

Hiroshi Tanahashi VS Chris Jericho (AEW World Championship)

jericho-tanahashi-696x392.jpg

In our final clash before tonight's main event, Hiroshi Tanahashi looks to bring the AEW championship to NJPW as he takes on the Painmaker, Chris Jericho. Ultimately, in a good match, Jericho would score the victory over Tanahashi, hitting him with a Judas Effect and retaining the AEW World title. After the match, after some taunting from Jericho, Tanahashi would sit dejected in the ring for a minute, utterly surprised at not only this loss, but how far his stock has fallen this year alone.

Kazuchika Okada VS Tetsuya Naito (IWGP World Heavyweight Championship/IWGP Intercontinental Championship)

maxresdefault.jpg

Finally, it's time for tonight's main event, as the Double Gold Dash will reach its ultimate conclusion. Tetsuya Naito enters the IWGP Intercontinental champion, looking to redeem himself for his loss to Okada two years ago. Okada enters the IWGP World Heavyweight champion, looking to prove that he is the greatest competitor in NJPW. In a fantastic main event between two of the best athletes in the world today, Tetsuya Naito would finally accomplish the task that has eluded him so, catching Okada with Destino and scoring the incredible victory. With this victory, Tetsuya Naito becomes the first ever man to hold both the IWGP World Heavyweight championship and Intercontinental championship, and Wrestle Kingdom ends with him celebrating.

New Year's Dash Build and Card

NEVER Openweight Six-Man Tag Titles

After winning the belts at Wrestle Kingdom, Roppongi 3K would see tensions between Rocky Romero and the former champions Ryusuke Taguchi, Togi Makabe and Toru Yano continue to rise. With CHAOS leader Kazuchika Okada still reeling from dropping the IWGP World Heavyweight title at Wrestle Kingdom, he was unable to keep Romero's tensions in check, and this led to a massive fight between Romero and Yano. These tensions would cause Taguchi to announce that he is bringing back the stable of Taguchi-Japan, and the first members are Great Bash Heel, Toru Yano, and Hiroshi Tanahashi. With tensions between Taguchi-Japan and Roppongi 3K reaching a boiling point, it was decided that Roppongi 3K's first defense would occur the night after Wrestle Kingdom against Ryusuke Taguchi and Great Bash Heel. Can the newly reformed Taguchi-Japan claim the Six-Man tag team titles, with Tomoaki Honma substituting in for Toru Yano, or is the reign of Roppongi 3K just getting started?

NEVER Openweight Championship

Though Wrestle Kingdom was a disappointing set of nights for Bullet Club, one of their biggest losses on the night was KENTA dropping the NEVER Openweight title to Hirooki Goto. As this happened, Manabu Nakanishi announced that he would be retiring at New Year's Dash, putting an end to his in-ring career and starting a new beginning for his life. Goto offered Nakanishi a championship match, to give the veteran one last night in the spotlight, and Nakanishi accepted. Will Goto put Nakanishi down in his final match, or does Nakanishi score one final title before he calls in a career?

IWGP Junior Heavyweight Tag Team Championship

At Wrestle Kingdom, Junior Tag League winners El Desperado and Yoshinobu Kanemaru would unseat Bullet Club's Taiji Ishimori and El Phantasmo to reclaim the gold. After this happened, New Japan announced that from this moment forward, they would be focusing on their titles and only their titles, putting the RevPro belts to rest and announcing they would no longer be defended in New Japan. However, New Japan announced that the current RevPro champions, Robbie Eagles and Zack Sabre Jr, would each have a title match at new Beginning of their choice. Robbie Eagles would decide to use his title match against Suzuki-Gun, teaming with Will Ospreay and looking to score the last accolade Ospreay needs in the Junior Heavyweight division, the Junior Heavyweight tag team titles. Will the Birds of Prey capture gold and redeem a fatal loss in last year's Junior Tag League, or do Despy and Kanemaru have some tricks up their sleeve?

IWGP Junior Heavyweight Championship

After winning the Junior Heavyweight title from Will Ospreay at Wrestle Kingdom, Hiromu Takahashi would immediately be challenged by former Junior Heavyweight Tag Team champion, El Phantasmo. Phantasmo would cite repeated victories over Ospreay, claiming that Takahashi could barely get through Ospreay and only won because he relied on Ospreay's moment of empathy and weakness. As a reward for an impressive debut year, it was decided that Phantasmo would be Takahashi's first challenger. Will Takahashi's feel-good return title run be short-lived, or does he keep a hold of the gold?

IWGP World Tag Team Championship

At Wrestle Kingdom, the team of Juice Robinson and David Finlay would unseat the Guerrillas of Destiny after an incredible World Tag League victory. FinJuice vowed to take on all comers. However, FinJuice's first opponents would prove to be familiar foes, with the Guerrillas of Destiny immediately issuing the challenge. As there are currently no other teams as worthy as the Guerrillas, New Year's Dash was slated to have a rematch between the two teams. Will we see history repeat itself once more, or do the Guerrillas score back their lost prize?

IWGP United States Championship

Lance Archer scored the biggest win of his New Japan career at Wrestle Kingdom, beating Jon Moxley to become the IWGP United States champion. With this victory, Archer would announce that he's offering a title shot to anyone who wants it at New Year's Dash, and it would be accepted by Hiroshi Tanahashi. Can Archer keep up this incredible streak of momentum, or is bringing back Taguchi-Japan the boost of momentum Tanahashi needs to get out of his recent slump?

IWGP Intercontinental Championship

At Wrestle Kingdom, we saw Tetsuya Naito make history by becoming the first man in history to hold both the IWGP and Intercontinental championships at the same time. After a long, six year journey to the top, the Ungovernable finally reached salvation, but he suddenly had twice as many targets on his back as ever before. The first test of his mettle would be an Intercontinental championship defense against Zack Sabre Jr, who is using his title shot from being a RevPro champion on the Intercontinental title, stating that after he softens Naito up, Suzuki will finish the job and claim the title that has eluded him his entire career. With Naito set to defend his two titles separately at New Beginning, can he keep hold of the Intercontinental title, or will ZSJ take the gold in New Beginning's opening match?

IWGP World Heavyweight Championship

Wrestle Kingdom's main event will see the Ungovernable immediately tested, as he faces Minoru Suzuki, who was given the title match after his incredible victory against Shingo Takagi, as well as a generally impressive last few months. Will Naito be able to overcome Suzuki, especially after a brutal war with Zack Sabre Jr earlier in the night, or does Suzuki finally claim the title that has eluded him this far?

New Year's Dash

Zack Sabre Jr. VS Tetsuya Naito (c) (IWGP Intercontinental Championship)

x1080

Kicking off New Year's Dash, we see the first of two titles defenses by new double champion, Tetsuya Naito. Naito is set to defend his Intercontinental championship against Zack Sabre Jr, who was given a title match of his choosing as courtesy of being the RevPro British champion, a title that will no longer have any bearing in NJPW. In a fantastic opener, ZSJ would pull off the upset, catching Naito in Orienteering With Napalm Death and forcing the submission. Whether Naito submitted to conserve energy for his title match later tonight against Minoru Suzuki or because he just couldn't handle the pain, Naito's time as double champion comes to a quick end, and ZSJ leaves New Year's Dash the new Intercontinental champion.

Our next bout sees another heated clash between former friends, as the new Six-Man Tag Team champions Roppongi 3K do battle with the newly reformed Taguchi-Japan, with Taguchi teaming with Great Bash Heel to attempt to reclaim their lost titles. In a great bout, Roppongi 3K would manage to keep hold of the gold, putting away Tomoaki Honma with 3K. With this, Rocky Romero gets the last laugh against Ryusuke Taguchi, and he now looks to lead the Six-Man tag team champions to success.

Up next, we see the retirement match of Manabu Nakanishi, who faces Hirooki Goto in one final title match before he calls it a career. In a hard-hitting bout, Goto would pick up the victory, putting away Nakanishi with the GTR and retaining the NEVER Openweight title. After the match, Goto leaves the ring, giving Nakanishi a few minutes to celebrate in front of the New Japan audience. Nakanishi thanks the fans for all his years in the company, and he makes his exit as New Year's Dash rolls on.

Next, we see Robbie Eagles and Will Ospreay face the Junior Heavyweight tag team champions and Junior Tag League 2019 winners, El Desperado and Yoshinobu Kanemaru of Suzuki-Gun, a match granted due to Robbie Eagles holding the RevPro British Cruiserweight title. In a fantastic bout, Suzuki-Gun would keep hold of the titles, with Despy putting away Eagles with a Pinche Loco.

El Phantasmo VS Hiromu Takahashi (c) (Junior Heavyweight championship)

Our next match sees Hiromu Takahashi defending his Junior Heavyweight championship against El Phantasmo, who lost both of his titles at Wrestle Kingdom and is desperately looking to pick up a victory. In a fantastic bout, Takahashi would score the victory, putting away Phantasmo with the Timebomb. Despite the vicious neck injury he suffered, Takahashi hasn't appeared to lose a single step, and he seems ready to hold down the Junior Heavyweight division against all comers.

Hiroshi Tanahashi VS Lance Archer (c) (IWGP United States championship)

In our final match before tonight's main event, we see one of the founders of the reformed Taguchi-Japan do battle with Lance Archer, who picked up a massive victory over Jon Moxley at Wrestle Kingdom. Unfortunately for the Ace of New Japan, he would come up short to the American Psycho, falling to the EBD Claw. Lance Archer retains yet again, and his stranglehold over the United States championship doesn't seem to be changing any time soon.

Minoru Suzuki VS Tetsuya Naito (c) (IWGP Heavyweight championship)

Our main event sees Tetsuya Naito, who already lost the Intercontinental title to Suzuki-Gun member Zack Sabre Jr earlier tonight, look to keep hold of his newly won IWGP Heavyweight title against Suzuki-Gun's leader, Minoru Suzuki. In an incredible main event, Naito is able to keep the dream alive, putting away Suzuki with Destino and keeping hold of the IWGP Heavyweight championship.

After the match, Naito thanks the fans again for their support on this six-year journey. He says he's sad to have lost the Intercontinental title earlier tonight, but he achieved his goal of being the first man to hold both titles at once, and he's now ready to place all of his focus on being the best IWGP Heavyweight champion he can be. however, before he can continue, he's suddenly attacked by Bullet Club's KENTA! KENTA lays out the IWGP Heavyweight champion with the GTS and holds his title above Naito's downed body, making his intentions clear as New Year's Dash comes to an end.

New Beginning Build and Card

NEVER Openweight Six-Man Tag Titles

After winning the belts at Wrestle Kingdom and successfully defending them against the newly reformed Taguchi-Japan trio, Roppongi 3K looks toward the future and whoever may choose to challenge their reign next. Roppongi 3K's next challengers would soon reveal themselves to be EVIL, SANADA and Shingo Takagi of Los Ingobernables de Japon. Will Roppongi 3K be able to overcome the heavyweight trio of LIJ, or does their reign meet a disappointingly short end?

NEVER Openweight Championship

After overcoming Manabu Nakanishi in his final ever match, Hirooki Goto's NEVER Openweight championship reign would hit a snag in the form of a familiar foe, as Jay White would once again gun for Goto. With both men scoring a victory apiece over each other in recent bouts, White looks to put away Goto one more time and take yet another championship in the process. Can the cocky young star score another championship in his still flegding career, or is Goto's reign set to continue?

IWGP Junior Heavyweight Tag Team Championship

After successfully defending their IWGP Junior Heavyweight Tag Team titles against the Birds of Prey, Despy and Kanemaru would brag about their lack of challengers. However, in the build to New Beginning, Kanemaru would take a loss to Ryu Lee during a Bullet Club VS LIJ eight-man tag. Though Lee is not an official member of LIJ, this victory would put him in position to face the Junior Heavyweight tag champions if he so chooses, an opportunity he would take. With Takahashi set to defend his title on the night, Lee would declare BUSHI his tag partner. Will Ryu Lee and BUSHI pull the upset, or can El Desperado and Kanemaru continue their reign?

IWGP Junior Heavyweight Championship

After a grueling title defense against El Phantasmo, Hiromu Takahashi's next challenger would reveal himself to be none other than Robbie Eagles, who pinned Takahashi in his return match. As CHAOS' newest member, will Eagles make lightning strike twice and succeed where his Birds of Prey partner failed, or does the Time Bomb's reign continue?

IWGP World Tag Team Championship

After overcoming the Guerrillas of Destiny in a rematch, FinJuice felt on top of the world, having two victories over arguably the top team in New Japan. As this happened, Kota Ibushi and Hiroshi Tanahashi would make their intentions to win the IWGP Heavyweight tag titles clear, feeling that it's the perfect chance for them to get back on the winning track. With no other challengers currently stepping up, FinJuice would accept the challenge. Will the Ace and the Golden Star be able to overcome FinJuice, or can the Cinderella story continue?

IWGP United States Championship

After a massive victory over Hiroshi Tanahashi, Lance Archer's grip around the United States championship appears to be tighter than ever. However, Archer would fall to Will Ospreay in tag team action, rekindling hostilities with a demon of his past. With Ospreay beating Archer in last year's New Japan Cup, but falling to the Murder Hawk in the G1 Climax, both men have one win apiece in the past year. Will Ospreay be able to score the United States title for the first time in his career, or is Archer's reign of terror set to continue even longer?

IWGP Intercontinental Championship

After unseating Tetsuya Naito and ending the double champion's reign early, Zack Sabre Jr wasted no time in bragging about his win everywhere he could. However, ZSJ would be caught totally off guard by Tomohiro Ishii, who was able to roll up ZSJ for the surprising victory. Now, a major clash of styles is set to light up New Year's Dash, as the technically savvy Zack Sabre Jr does battle with the hard-hitting Stone Pitbull, Tomohiro Ishii. Will Ishii be able to score a massive victory and end ZSJ's reign early, or can ZSJ keep his grasp on his newly won gold?

IWGP World Heavyweight Championship

Though he lost his Intercontinental championship, Tetsuya Naito would be able to keep his grasp on the World Heavyweight title, beating Minoru Suzuki at New Year's Dash. After overcoming Suzuki, Naito would immediately be attacked by Bullet Club's KENTA, and Naito immediately demanded that KENTA be his next opponent. With KENTA jumping the line, he now receives his first ever IWGP World Heavyweight championship opportunity. Who will walk out of New Beginning the IWGP World Heavyweight champion?
