IWGP Heavyweight Champion Challenges IWGP Junior Heavyweight Champion For New Japan's Anniversary Show

 Kazuchika Okada has challenged Will Ospreay to a match.

After retaining his IWGP Heavyweight championship against SANADA this morning, Okada cut a promo. Chris Charlton's translations, as well as the announcers, indicated that he had challenged IWGP Junior Heavyweight champion Will Ospreay, who also emerged victorious tonight, to a champion against champion match at their upcoming anniversary show.

This won't be the first time the two will meet. Okada originally squared off against Ospreay back in RPW in 2015, which led to Okada (in storyline) inviting Ospreay to be a part of the Chaos stable, joining New Japan. This will be their second ever singles bout against one another.

New Japan's anniversary show will take place on March 6 at the Ota Ward Gymnasium in Tokyo. It will mark their 46th anniversary as a company following the split of the JWA in 1972.
