Stardom match to take place at NJPW Wrestle Kingdom 15


A match featuring Stardom wrestlers will take place at New Japan Pro Wrestling’s Wrestle Kingdom 15 event.

During today’s Osaka Dream Cinderella card, the company announced that their wrestlers will compete in a match on the January 5 Wrestle Kingdom card. It wasn’t made clear if this would be a televised match or a dark match. 

Stardom and NJPW share the same parent company, Bushiroad. Stardom was acquired by Bushiroad last fall.

A dark match featuring Stardom wrestlers took place at Wrestle Kingdom 14 prior to the start of the January 4 card. In that match, Mayu Iwatani and Arisa Hoshiki defeated Hana Kimura and Gulia in a tag match when Iwatani pinned Kimura with a moonsault press.

Stardom additionally announced today a new logo design for 2021, when they will be celebrating their 10th anniversary. They will be running Budokan Hall for their tenth anniversary show, All-Star Dream Cinderella, on March 3. It will also serve as Mayu Iwatani’s 10th anniversary event.
