New Japan Pro Wrestling announced on their official website that KENTA will put his IWGP United States Heavyweight Championship Right To Challenge contract on the line as part of Night One of Wrestle Kingdom 15 against Satoshi Kojima.

The announcement reads, “After issuing a challenge in Korakuen Hall, December 23 saw Juice Robinson vs KENTA made official for January 4 2021, with the IWGP US Right to Challenge briefcase at stake. Unfortunately, hours after the announcement, it was learned that Robinson had sustained a fractured left orbital bone and would not be able to compete. Stepping up in his place will be Satoshi Kojima. Saying to KENTA at Korakuen Hall that ‘this aging 50 year old can still go like hell’, Kojima struck with a Koji Cutter to KENTA on December 23, throwing his hat into the US briefcase ring. Could Satoshi Kojima shock KENTA in the Tokyo Dome January 4? Find out live and in English on NJPW World or FITE!”
