When it comes to New Japan Pro-Wrestling, there is one show each year that matters the most — that show being Wrestle Kingdom. Friday, Wrestle Kingdom 13 is set to take place inside the usual venue of the Tokyo Dome with, once again, some amazing matches going down. The annual Jan. 4 extravaganza rarely fails to deliver, and this year should absolutely be no different. The card will be headlined with Kenny Omega putting the IWGP heavyweight championship on the line against the “Ace” of New Japan, Hiroshi Tanahashi.
