NJPW is a very well-known indie wrestling promotion. They have produced a number of legendary wrestlers in the past. Some of those wrestlers are now WWE Legends. Many WWE wrestlers also got hired by them in the past. The NJPW helped WWE wrestlers become mega stars in Japan and that helped them get better WWE deals.
NJPW recently held their King of Pro Wrestling event. Typhoon Hagibis was the reason why some wrestlers couldn’t make it to the event. IWGP US Champion Jon Moxley and Zack Sabre Jr missed the event. NJPW had to make changes immediately.
Moxley was going to fight Juice Robinson in a no DQ match. The title had to be vacated. Robinson and Lance Archer competed for it in a traditional singles match. Overall, it was a good show. Some feuds were set up during the show and they will be interesting.
The lineup for the show was: IWGP Heavyweight Championship Kazuchika Okada (c) vs. SANADA Rights to G1 Climax contract for Wrestle Kingdom 14 Kota Ibushi (holder) vs. EVIL IWGP United States Championship (Vacant) Lance Archer vs Juice Robinson IWGP Junior Heavyweight Championship Will Ospreay (c) vs.
