The Wrestling Observer is reporting that Brock Lesnar, who made his MMA debut earlier this month in Los Angeles, arrived in Japan yesterday holding the old IWGP Title. Lesnar claimed he would defend the title on tomorrow night's show in Sumo Hall. For those unaware, Lesnar was the IWGP Champion and because he was owed money by New Japan, he never sent the company back the belt. So, the early word is that he will likely defend it against Kurt Angle at tomorrow night's show.
