NJPW Capital Collision airing on FITE, 'significant improvements' promised

Windy City Riot purchasers will also get FITE credit if they buy the PPV.

NJPW announced Wednesday that their May 14th Capital Collision show will be available via pay-per-view on, promising what they call "significant improvements" that will help avoid the technical issues they had with April's Windy City Riot.

For that Chicago-based PPV on April 16th, there were technical issues throughout the show that plagued both the audio and video. The problems were so bad that NJPW issued an apology and FITE issued refunds to those who complained to their customer service department.

In their announcement Wednesday, NJPW again addressed the problems and the fixes they made in order to gain faith back from potential buyers:

"NJPW sets the highest of broadcast standards, and is very aware that Windy City Riot, through no fault of FITE, fell short of those standards. We deeply appreciate fans showing their passion for NJPW events; as a mark of that appreciation, every viewer of Windy City Riot on FITE who purchases Capital Collision will receive 5 FITE credits, applied automatically at checkout. More details below.

For Capital Collision, significant improvements and restructuring to our production pipeline will ensure the best possible quality viewing experience that our fans expect and deserve. Refunds will be made available with no questions asked for any technical issues encountered."

The PPV will cost $19.99 and will feature a four-way IWGP U.S. title match between Hiroshi Tanahashi, Jon Moxley, Juice Robinson and Will Ospreay; Eddie Kingston vs. Tomohiro Ishii, and Brody King vs. Minoru Suzuki.
