Backstage News On Plans For NJPW Wrestle Kingdom 15


The Wrestling Observer Newsletter reports that there are multiple plans in place for NJPW Wrestle Kingdom 15 at the Tokyo Dome on January 4 and 5, 2020.

As of this writing, it’s unknown how many fans will be allowed inside due to the COVID-19 pandemic. 

NJPW ran Jingu Stadium with only 5,000 fans for an outdoor stadium show. The Tokyo Dome is indoors, so it may be less than that. 

NJPW has been trying to keep shows under three hours since the pandemic began. 

Another issue is whether foreign talent can appear such as IWGP US Champion Jon Moxley, for example. Gedo reportedly has plans depending on who can or can’t appear.

The plan for the main event would seem to be Tetsuya Naito vs. Kota Ibushi for the IGWP Heavyweight and Intercontinental titles.
