The special, which will pay out on who is holding the IWGP Heavyweight Championship at the end of night two of Wrestle Kingdom on January 5th 2020, was taken down as today's show was beginning. Here's how the market looked fifteen minutes before it was removed.
I last wrote about the market on September 29th. The most recent prices - in the image above - were made on October 2nd. Two selections were cut with Jay White moving in from 5/1 to 9/2 and Tetsuya Naito from 2/1 to 6/4.
Three names drifted. They were: SANADA (9/1 to 10/1), Kazuchika Okada (33/20 to 2/1) and the betting favourite - Kota Ibushi (3/4 to 17/20).
All other selections remain at their previous odds.
During today's show, Naito and Shingo Takagi beat Taichi and Douki in a tag match. Post-match, Taichi beat up Naito and indicated that he would do what Naito couldn't (be in contention to be the double champion at the conclusion of Wrestle Kingdom), so that has me thinking Naito .vs. Taichi will be the match at Power Struggle with the winner going on to face the IWGP Intercontinental Champion on night one of Wrestle Kingdom.
The bottom line - they're building hurdles for Naito to get through to make it to night two of Wrestle Kingdom and that, to me, makes him my favourite to be the double champ when all is said and done on January 5th.
