For only the second time in NJPW history, the IWGP Heavyweight Championship will be a triple threat match. Kenny Omega will defend against Cody and Kota Ibushi at the King of Pro Wrestling event on October 8.
After defeating Kazuchika Okada and Tomohiro Ishii at tonight’s NJPW Fighting Spirit Unleashed, Omega initially wanted to just face Ibushi, but Cody came out and inserted himself into the match. Omega actually liked the idea and went with the change.
Below is the updated card:
* Kenny Omega (c) vs. Kota Ibushi vs. Cody (IWGP Heavyweight Championship)
* KUSHIDA vs. Marty Scurll (for the vacant IWGP Jr. Heavyweight Championship)
