Stardom dark matches will take place at NJPW Wrestle Grand Slam in MetLife Dome. 

Stardom tweeted the announcement that they will present dark matches on both nights of the event. No talent was announced for the shows, as matches will be announced at a later date. Broadcast restrictions with Japanese television partner Samurai TV preclude the dark matches from being shown on NJPW World. 

Stardom's inclusion on NJPW dome shows began following Bushiroad's purchase of Stardom in 2019. Bushiroad serves as the parent company for both NJPW and Stardom. 

On night two of Wrestle Kingdom 15 in January 2021, AZM, Saya Kamitani and Utami Hayashishita faced Himeka, Maika and Natsupoi, plus Giulia and Syuri faced Mayu Iwatani and Tam Nakano. 

On night one of Wrestle Kingdom 14 in January 2020, Iwatani and Arisa Hoshiki faced Giulia and the late Hana Kimura.
