During AEWxNJPW Forbidden Door, it was announced that the night after the NJPW Wrestle Kingdom 19 event in 2025, the Tokyo Dome will host a major crossover event featuring wrestlers from AEW (All Elite Wrestling), NJPW (New Japan Pro Wrestling), STARDOM, ROH and CMLL.

The event will be called Wrestle Dynasty. This announcement is really important, because five promotions involved in one event at the Tokyo Dome is not exactly an everyday thing, but at the same time it is not surprising given the recent collaborations of these realities and also the recent merger between NJPW and STARDOM.

In addition, Tony Khan has expressed several times his willingness to continue his collaboration with NJPW and consequently with other companies that have been working closely with both companies for some time.

The merger between NJPW and STARDOM

In April, New Japan Pro Wrestling (NJPW) announced the purchase of Bushiroad Fight, the parent company of STARDOM.

The news was that Bushiroad Fight would be renamed STARDOM and the merger would be completed on June 28, 2024 and indeed it was. In the announcement it had been specified that the objective of the acquisition was, "To improve the operating efficiency and to reduce the redundancies inside the sporting unit of Bushiroad," and now the two have a chance to prove it after confirming that the merger has been completed so STARDOM has become a subsidiary of NJPW.

Hiroshi Tanahashi also spoke about this news, as reported by Women Between The Ropes: "Today, I was officially able to make a speech in front of STARDOM fans. Essentially, the STARDOM and New Japan shows will continue to function as they did before, but there are places where we can work with each other, for example with promotional work and interviews.

I’m going to the United States, where men and women in wrestling are traditionally both equally represented in federations. I will work with President Okada to make sure the event can be enjoyed by everyone."
