Pro Wrestling Examiner's Match of the Day January 3, 2014

Hiroshi Tanahashi vs Kazuchika Okada

Tomorrow is one of the biggest wrestling shows of the year, and it's not being produced by WWE and it's not being headlined by John Cena. Tomorrow New Japan Pro Wrestling will present their Wrestlemania level event Wrestle Kingdom 8 with superstar Hiroshi Tanahashi challenging Shinsuke Nakamura for the IWGP Intercontinental Championship at the Tokyo Dome in Tokyo, Japan. It's a huge stadium wrestling show that a lot of wrestling fans in North America may not know about, so let's look at a great match from NJPW.

Today's match goes back to last year's Wrestle Kingdom when the evil Okada flaunting his wealth and advanced wrestling talent climbed his way though the ranks. He represented "money" in the Wrestle Kingdom, while the reigning IWGP Heavyweight Hiroshi Tanahashi represented "love" and the fighting spirit of NJPW. It was a guy to cheer and a guy to boo on a grand stage inside the Dome.

Check out Wrestle Kingdom 8 tomorrow morning on live internet pay per view with Ustream. If you do not want wake up at 2 AM EST to watch the show, it will be posted for on-demand viewers after it's done airing live. The show is priced at $25.
