As set on today’s 10/13 New Japan King of Pro Wrestling iPPV in Tokyo at Sumo Hall, Hiroshi Tanahashi will defend the IWGP Title against G-1 Climax winner Kazuchika Okada at the Wrestlekingdom 9 show on January 4, 2015 at the Tokyo Dome. Tanahashi won the IWGP Title at today’s iPPV over AJ Styles, winning the IWGP Title for a record seventh time, breaking Tatsumi Fujinami’s record of six IWGP Title reigns. The Wrestlekingdom 9 show has been rumored to possibly be shown on PPV in the United States, presented by Jeff Jarrett’s Global Force Wrestling. This will be the seventh meeting between Okada & Tanahashi since Okada’s return to the company in 2012. In their six previous matches, their record against each other is Okada with three wins, Tanahashi with two and one time limit draw.
