The IWGP World Heavyweight Championship bout and another top match announced for a huge NJPW event in October.

New Japan Pro Wrestling announced the Declaration of Power event at Ryogoku Sumo Hall for October 10.

This will be the first time that NJPW has brought back the classic Declaration of Power name since the late 1990s and early 2000s.

NJPW wrote the following:

October 10 will see NJPW return to Ryogoku Sumo Hall, with a traditional national sports day holiday event back on the calendar. This time, as NJPW continues to revive classic tour names from our 50 year history, Declaration of Power is back from being a regular series through the late 1990s and early 2000s.

The October 10 event will be headlined by Switchblade Jay White defending the IWGP World Heavyweight Championship against Tama Tonga.

Tonga earned the title shot by defeating White to win the B Block in the G1 Climax 32 tournament on August 16.

In another scheduled matchup for NJPW Declaration of Power, G1 Climax 32 winner Kazuchika Okada will go one-on-one with JONAH.

The former WWE star defeated Okada on the G1 Climax 32 Night 13. It was the Rainmaker’s only loss in the tournament.

Despite Okada’s victory in the G1, he will not defend his Wrestle Kingdom 17 title shot against JONAH after cementing that the winner of the tournament should headline the Tokyo Dome event on January 4.

New Japan Pro Wrestling will also host their first events with fans being allowed to cheer and boo in September, which you can read more about here.
