Karl Anderson to defend NEVER Openweight title on December 14 in Japan

Karl Anderson and Luke Gallows will be returning to New Japan Pro-Wrestling in December where Anderson will finally get to defend his NEVER Openweight title.

The two will be part of the World Tag League event which will take place on December 14 at the Sendai Sunplaza Hall in Sendai, Japan. December 14 is a Wednesday so it should not conflict with any WWE dates, plus WWE has no main roster premium live events scheduled for the final month of the year.

Anderson was originally scheduled to defend the title against Hikuleo on November 5 at Battle Autumn but Anderson opted instead to travel to Saudi Arabia for WWE’s Crown Jewel. NJPW threatened to strip Anderson off his title but eventually they let him retain it.
