Three Key Points:

  • Tetsuya Naito wins the IWGP World Heavyweight Championship at Wrestle Kingdom 18.
  • Naito completes a personal narrative, commencing his initial reign as the seventh champion.
  • Post-match interference by EVIL foreshadows potential future challenges for Naito.

Victory and Vindication for Tetsuya Naito

In Tokyo’s biggest pro wrestling event, Tetsuya Naito etched his name into the annals of wrestling history. Culminating a storied journey at Wrestle Kingdom 18, Naito seized victory from Sanada to become the new IWGP World Heavyweight Champion. This significant achievement marks his entrance into the champion’s circle as the seventh individual to hold this prestigious title.

Naito’s Climactic Victory

The climactic battle witnessed Naito executing a remarkable counter, transforming Sanada’s terminating sequence into an offensive arsenal of his own. A strategic brainbuster, paired with his signature move Destino, allowed Naito to attain the conclusive three-count. His display of resilience and in-ring savvy not only entertained but cemented his legacy in a narrative that dates back to a dual-title triumph at Wrestle Kingdom 14.

Post-Match Turmoil and Solidarity

Despite the celebratory atmosphere, the night’s narrative took an unexpected twist. EVIL, with Dick Togo in tow, disrupted the festivities, launching an attack on the freshly-crowned champion. Proclaiming his intent to usurp the title, EVIL stirred the waters of contention. However, solidarity prevailed as Sanada intervened, ensuring Naito’s hard-fought moment of glory remained untarnished, leaving the new champion to bask in the emotional aftermath of his triumph.
