The tournament is set to run from March 4 to March 6 in Oberhausen.
The wXw 16 Carat Gold tournament has been running every year since 2006, with the exception of 2021 due to COVID, when Baron von Hagen won the tournament. Since then, notable names such as Chris Hero (Kassius Ohno), WALTER, Shingo Takagi, Sami Zayn, Zack Sabre Jr., Ilja Dragunov and Malaki Black have gone on to win the entire tournament. The 2020 tournament was won by Cara Noir.
Fightful will have results from the tournament as it gets underway and more entrants when they are announced.
