The show is stacked with championship matches including IWGP Heavyweight Champion Kazuchika Okada defending against Los Ingobernables de Japon member SANADA. The IWGP United States Championship is also on the line as Jon Moxley faces against former champion Juice Robinson. Lastly, the IWGP Junior Heavyweight Championship matchup sees Will Ospreay attempt to keep his belt against Bullet Club’s El Phantasmo.
