There will be 2 Semi-Final matches on Nov. 6th that then lead into the Finals later that night.
The current match listings for the tournament can be found by the link below.
Following the conclusion of DESTRUCTION ’11 many matches have been now laid out for the next upcoming PPV Event.
Of course one of the biggest story coming out of the event was the shocking ending when Toru Yano came out of nowhere and attacked Tanahashi. Yano then grabbed the IWGP Heavy Belt and walked out of the arena with it over his shoulder. Tanahashi tried to thank the fans for coming out for the match, but was noted to have been livid when he got to the back.
So this will lead us to November 12th with the next PPV Event called POWER STRUGGLE. 5 matches have been announced so far with at least 9-10 matches being scheduled in all.
All the title challenges that were made at DESTRUCTION ’11 are happening at the this next event, and so is the continuing war between Tenzan & Kojima.
