IWGP Heavyweight Champion and IWGP Intercontinental Champion Tetsuya Naito has issued a challenge to Kota Ibushi to face him in the main event of the Wrestle Kingdom 15 Night 1 event on January 4th, 2021.

Ibushi, who was the G1 briefcase holder heading in to NJPW Power Struggle over the weekend, lost the briefcase in a match against Jay White, the first time that the briefcase has changed hands before Wrestle Kingdom.
