Wrestling All-Star Battle to be held at Sumo Hall in February

A multi-promotional event featuring a number of high profile Japanese promotions will take place next February.

Tokyo Sports announced this morning that Wrestling All-Star Battle will go down on February 19 at Sumo Hall. It will feature wrestlers from All Japan Pro Wrestling, Pro Wrestling NOAH, New Japan Pro Wrestling, Big Japan Pro Wrestling and Wrestle-1. Broadcasting information for the event isn’t currently known, nor were any matches announced.

The event is in commemoration of two events: the 20th anniversary of Giant Baba’s death (which took place on January 31, 1999) as well as the 60th anniversary of Tokyo Sports itself.

The last Wrestling All-Star Battle took place in August of 1979. On that show, Giant Baba and Antonio Inoki, who teamed for years before a split led to the eventual founding of both AJPW and NJPW, teamed for the last time. They defeated Abdullah the Butcher and Tiger Jeet Singh.
