Second NJPW Wrestle Kingdom 17 event announced for January 21


A second Wrestle Kingdom event has been announced.

NJPW announced Thursday morning that a second show will be held on January 21 at the Yokohama Arena.

“The Wrestle Kingdom 17 party will not be finished with the Tokyo Dome!” the company’s website reads. “After January 8 2022 saw a third night of Wrestle Kingdom sell out the Yokohama Arena, January 21 will see this special festival of an event for the second year. This year, NJPW and Pro-Wrestling NOAH collided on a card full of interpromotional battles. What does this special night have in store for 2023? Stay tuned for more information!”

Last year’s Yokohama Show was a cross-promotional event between NJPW and Pro Wrestling NOAH. It was headlined by NJPW’s Kazuchika Okada and Hiroshi Tanahashi defeating NOAH’s Keiji Mutoh and Kaito Kiyomiya.

The first Wrestle Kingdom 17 show will take place on January 4 at the Tokyo Dome. It will be headlined by Jay White defending the IWGP World Heavyweight title against Kazuchika Okada.
