During New Japan Pro Wrestling’s Summer Struggle earlier today, Kazuchika Okada and Yujiro Takahashi was announced as the first two entrants in the New Japan KOPW title tournament. Okada cut a promo on Takahashi at the show, suggesting their matchup be a 3 on 1 handicap match, with Okada being the one at the disadvantage.
The eight-man tournament will begin on August 26 in Korakuen Hall.
Okada: Sorry to say this during the NEVER tournament, but Yujiro, you're going to be in the KOPW 2020 right? Let's you and I go at it in the first round! And my rules? One on three, handicap match is no problem with me!
