NJPW announces Windy City Riot event for Chicago area

NJPW promises that the show will be a 'major event.'

NJPW is heading to the Chicago area. 

The company has announced Windy City Riot for Saturday, April 16 at the Odeum Expo Center in Villa Park, Illinois.

Will Ospreay, Tomohiro Ishii, Jay White, Jeff Cobb, Yuji Nagata, David Finlay, Juice Robinson, Tom Lawlor, JONAH, Fred Rosser, and Brody King are the first talent announcements for the event. No matches have been made official as of yet.

Tickets for the show will go on sale on Friday, February 4 at 12 p.m. Central time at this link. Ticket prices will range from $25 to $299.

The show looks to be bigger than an NJPW Strong taping, as Ishii and Nagata are typically not brought in for smaller shows in the United States. In their announcement, NJPW said that the show will be "a major event." A comparable show would be appear to be last November's Battle in the Valley event in San Jose.
