Power Struggle saw Naito retain both belts in the main event against former double champion EVIL. On that same show, White defeated G1 Climax winner Kota Ibushi to win the briefcase that guaranteed the holder a shot at Ibushi’s titles. 

Not much is known about the show’s lineup of matches for either night, but Will Ospreay did challenge Kazuchika Okada to a match at Wrestle Kingdom 15, which Okada accepted.

On the same press conference, Naito states that he wants to have two main event matches at Wrestle Kingdom 15. Naito said he wants to wrestle Ibushi on night one of Wrestle Kingdom 15. NJPW has yet to confirm whether or not Naito vs. Ibushi on night one will happen.

Fightful will have live coverage of Wrestle Kingdom 15, taking place at the Tokyo Dome on January 4 and 5, 2021.
