NOAH invades NJPW Wrestle Kingdom 16

A group of NOAH talent appeared at today's NJPW show ahead of Saturday's NJPW vs. NOAH pay-per-view.

Led by Keiji Muto, a group of NOAH talent appeared at today's NJPW Wrestle Kingdom 16 event.

At least 27 different NOAH talents commandeered the ring. Kaito Kiyomiya and Kenoh cut promos, mocking the low attendance for the event, and setting the stage for the interpromotional card coming up on Saturday.

NJPW's Shingo Takagi, Hiromu Takahashi, and BUSHI made their way to the ring and teased a confrontation, but ultimately there was no physicality.

The two promotions will square off on night three of Wrestle Kingdom in Yokohama Arena on Saturday. Here is the lineup:
