Like New York City’s Madison Square Garden, Japan’s Tokyo Dome has been at the epicenter of unforgettable wrestling lore. New Japan Pro Wrestling has played a huge part in increasing the stadium’s legendary status by presenting wrestling events full of bombastic bouts and highlight-reel worthy moments.
The phenomenon that NJPW has turned into a can’t-miss annual tradition is Wrestle Kingdom, the Japanese wrestling company’s version of WWE’s WrestleMania. Since 2007, Japan’s greatest in-ring athletes have taken center stage in the Tokyo Dome and put on some of the best bouts the world has ever seen. Puroresu icons such as Keiji Mutoh, Hiroshi Tanahashi, Shinsuke Nakamura, Kazuchika Okada and many more have left crowds in awe of their Wrestle Kingdom performances every year since the event’s inception.
As we kick off 2020, Wrestle Kingdom 14 will be the talk of the wrestling world as it dominates the very first weekend of the year. If you’re still clueless about modern-day NJPW or just want a quick hype-check on what Wrestle Kingdom 14 has in store, then allow us to bring you up to speed.
