NJPW have announced the cards for the Road to Destruction Tour and the Destruction events themselves.

They also announced that the main event of King of Pro Wrestling on October 12th will be Kazuchika Okada defending the IWGP Heavyweight Championship against AJ Styles.

former NXT star CJ Parker will be debuting for NJPW on the tour under the name Juice Robinson.  Parker had previously announced that he was retiring from pro wrestling, so obviously CJP is retiring and Juice Robinson is debuting.

Also on the tour we will have the NJPW debut of Matt Sydal as they build him towards an IWGP Jr Heavyweight title shot after his win over KUSHIDA at the ROH event in Philly.

The tour also sees the return of Alex Shelley who hasn't wrestled in NJPW since his injury in the Best of the Super Juniors.
