For WWE fans the month of January means we have entered WrestleMania season and in many respects the most interesting time of year for WWE. However, for fans outside of the WWE the month of January means one thing and that is that it's time once again for Wrestle Kingdom. I will admit before a few years ago I had no idea about Wrestle Kingdom or how much of a big deal it is. The reason I got into NJPW is two matches that actually hold the match of year honors for 2015 & 2016 which both matches took place at Wrestle Kingdom. The two matches in question are Kota Ibushi vs Shinsuke Nakamura and Okada vs Tanahashi.
The newest thing that I have found about NJPW from watching more videos on the company I can honestly say that they take long term booking to a whole new level. A perfect example of this is that at Wrestle Kingdom 12 we will see Naito vs Okada which is a feud that started back in 2013 and will come to a head.
Recently, though the news broke that another huge match has been made for the event. Also I just want to mention that the genuine shock from the announcers just made everything even better. The fact that come Wrestle Kingdom 12 we will be seeing "Alpha vs Omega" at the event as well is in incredible. For those who may not what I am talking about well take a look at the video below:
