Double Championship Match Scheduled For NJPW New Beginning In Osaka

New Japan Pro Wrestling has announced that Tetsuya Naito will defend his championships at New Beginning in Osaka. To little surprise, his challenger will be KENTA.

Naito won the IWGP Heavyweight and IWGP Intercontinental Championships at Wrestle Kingdom 14. He defeated Jay White first on January 4th and followed that up by beating Kazuchika Okada on January 5th. Much to the audience’s dismay, his long-awaited celebration was cut short when KENTA interfered.

KENTA hit the Go To Sleep on a weary Naito and posed with both belts. This was followed up on the next night at New Years Dash when KENTA said he would take both belts from Naito. Now, he has his chance.

New Beginning in Osaka will take place on February 9 and will culminate the New Beginning tour.

Do you think Tetsuya Naito will beat KENTA? Let us know on Twitter or on Discord!
