Huge Updates On NJPW’s United States Expansion: Tours Being Planned, LA Offices & Dojo, More


New Japan Pro Wrestling Owner Takaaki Kidani recently spoke with Tokyo Sports about the G1 Special they hosted this past weekend in Long Beach, CA.

Some of the big highlights coming out of the interview are:

  • NJPW considers both shows to have been a huge success
  • They would like to try a touring styled show in the United States no later than March or April 2018
  • NJPW will be opening offices in Los Angeles within the year
  • NJPW will be opening a dojo in Los Angeles in early 2018
