David Finlay emerged as the victor at NJPW Wrestle Kingdom, seizing the prestigious IWGP Global Championship in a thrilling three-way clash that pitted him against the formidable Jon Moxley and Will Ospreay.

In the conclusion to the match, Ospreay blindsided Moxley with a hidden blade, creating an opening for Finlay to execute the Into Oblivion move followed by a Super Into Oblivion, securing his victory and the coveted championship.

The initial agreement, as discussed during the press conference, saw Moxley and Ospreay collaborating to target Finlay, hoping to eliminate him early on. However, Finlay displayed remarkable resilience, weathering their onslaught for the first five minutes of the bout. Eventually, tensions flared, and Moxley and Ospreay turned on each other, intensifying the contest.

This three-way battle witnessed the inclusion of tables and chairs, as well as interference from Bullet Club’s WAR DOGS (Alex Coughlin & Gabe Kidd), adding an extra layer of chaos to the already explosive matchup.


Following the bout, David Finlay engaged in a heated confrontation with Nic Nemeth, better known as Dolph Ziggler, who was seated at ringside. The two competitors couldn’t contain their animosity and erupted into a brawl, further escalating the drama and excitement surrounding the event.

The IWGP Global Championship was introduced following Finlay’s destructive act at NJPW Power Struggle, where he dismantled the IWGP United States and United Kingdom Championships, solidifying his place as a dominant force in the wrestling world.
