Join LOP Columns Hall of Famer, Xanman, as he looks back at New Japan Pro Wrestling's biggest show of the year, Wrestle Kingdom 11!

It's a stacked card, as eight of the eleven matches will be contested for championships. Tetsuya Naito will defend the IWGP Intercontinental Championship against Hiroshi Tanahashi, Katsuyori Shibata defends his NEVER Openweight Championship against Hirooki Goto and Kushida puts the IWGP Junior Heavyweight Championship on the line against Hiromu Takahashi. Also, as part of a partnership between NJPW and Ring of Honor, the ROH World CHampionship will be defended with Champion Kyle O'Reilly taking on Adam Cole.

The main event will see reigning IWGP Heavyweight Champion, Kazuchika Okada, defending his title against 2016 G1 Climax winner, Kenny Omega, in a match that many are expecting to blow the roof off of the famed Tokyo Dome.

All that and much more will be covered here on this LOP Radio special as Xanman takes a look at the first major wrestling event of the new year, Wrestle Kingdom 11!
