New Japan has released the card for their upcoming anniversary show on March 6.
As expected, the show will be headlined by IWGP Heavyweight champion Kazuchika Okada taking on IWGP Jr. Heavyweight champion Will Ospreay in a rare clash between the two leaders of the New Japan weight divisions. Okada had challenged Ospreay after successfully defending the IWGP Heavyweight title against SANADA at the New Beginning in Osaka.
Two more title matches will take place, as Roppongi 3K will defend the Jr. tag team titles in a three way between both El Desperado and Yoshinobu Kanemaru and the team of Hiromu Takahashi and BUSHI. Taichi will also ascend to the heavyweight division as he challenges Tetsuya Naito.
The card is as follows:
