The Wrestle Kingdom 13 main event is already known, but NJPW has now announced additional top matches for the annual event — including Chris Jericho‘s Intercontinental title defense.  

NJPW’s website confirms Jericho will be forced to put his title on the line against Los Ingobernables de Japon leader Tetsuya Naito in a rematch from their bout at Dominion.

The company also announced Kazuchika Okada will wrestle against Jay White. As you may recall, White caused Gedo to turn his back on “The Rainmaker.”

Plus, Taiji Ishimori will challenge for KUSHIDA‘s IWGP Jr. Heavyweight title and Suzuki Gun will defend the IWGP Jr. Tag Team Championship against Roppongi 3K and LIJ

This is all in addition to the main event between Kenny Omega and Hiroshi Tanahashi for the IWGP Heavyweight Championship.

Wrestle Kingdom 13 takes place on January 4, 2019.
