The full card for New Japan’s annual King of Pro Wrestling show has been released and will feature the heavily-promoted match between Minoru Suzuki and Jushin Thunder Liger.

Following an angle at the Destruction in Kobe event on Sunday, which saw Liger re-introduce his “Kishin Liger” persona, the match is set for Sumo Hall on Monday, October 14th.

The two had their last singles match in December 2012 with Suzuki defeating the junior heavyweight legend. Of course, they had a fight in Pancrase in November 2002 that Suzuki won convincingly by submitting Liger and has been used in the promotion during their present feud.

This show will also feature the return of El Desperado, who has been out this May.
