NJPW running back-to-back shows at Tokyo Dome in 2020


For the first time in New Japan’s history, their annual 1/4 event will now run on two consecutive nights inside the Tokyo Dome.

Prior to the main card of Wrestle Kingdom 13, New Japan showed a video highlighting tour dates through August. But they saved the biggest news for last: Wrestle Kingdom 14 will be held on two consecutive nights. January 4 and 5, 2020.

This would be a big change in format from recent years. New Japan has ran the Wrestle Kingdom on January 4 while New Year’s Dash, a more angle-heavy show featuring tag team matches, usually runs the next day at Korakuen Hall.

Other dates announced include:

  • The New Beginning in Sapporo on February 2 and 3
  • The New Beginning in Osaka on February 11
  • New Japan Cup in Niigata on March 23 and 24
  • ROH/NJPW G1 Supercard at Madison Square Garden in New York City on April 6 
  • Road to Wrestling Dontaku on April 20 in Aichi
  • Wrestling Dontaku 2019 on May 3 and 4 in Fukuoka
  • Best of the Super Jr. 26 finals take place on June 5 at Sumo Hall
  • Dominion 6.9 in Osaka Jo Hall
  • August 31 at the Copper Box Arena in London, England
