NJPW Power Struggle Jay White vs. Goto

Following yesterday’s King of Pro-Wrestling event, New Japan Pro Wrestling (NJPW) has announced some new matchups for this year’s Power Struggle event. First up, Jay White will defend the IWGP Intercontinental title against Hirooki Goto. Previously, Goto defeated Jay White during the G1 Climax and is coming off a win over Shingo Takagi in Kobe on September 22.

Also set for the card, KENTA will be defending the NEVER Openweight Championship against Tomohiro Ishii in a rematch from Royal Quest last August. Taichi will face Tetsuya Naito after Taichi’s attack on Naito at King of Pro-Wrestling.

Finally, IWGP heavyweight champion Kazuchika Okada and Kota Ibushi will team up against YOSHI-HASHI and Hiroshi Tanahashi. NJPW has already confirmed that Okada will defend the title against G1 Climax 29 winner Ibushi at Night 1 of Wrestle Kingdom 14 on January 4, 2020.

NJPW Power Struggle 2019 is set for November 3. The event will be held at the Osaka Prefectural Gymnasium in Osaka, Japan.
