It was a night that would see a man start his journey to becoming a “God”. In the main event of night one at Wrestle Kingdom, Kota Ibushi was able to defeat the Double Champion, Tetsuya Naito. The win awarded Ibushi both the IWGP Heavyweight and IWGP Intercontinental Championship belts. It was a long time coming for the Golden Star, as Ibushi had failed to capture the Double Gold at last year’s Wrestle Kingdom event.
Kota Ibushi will not have long to celebrate the win. Jay White waits in the wings to challenge the newly crowned champion, just 24 hours after winning the titles.
