Stardom reveals dark match for NJPW Wrestle Kingdom 14


Update --

It's been announced that Stardom's dark match at Wrestle Kingdom 14 night one will be Mayu Iwatani & Arisa Hoshiki vs. Hana Kimura & Giulia.


Following Bushiroad's acquisition of Stardom, the women's promotion will be represented on night one of Wrestle Kingdom 14.

At Stardom's Year-End Climax show this morning, it was revealed that Stardom will have a dark match at the Tokyo Dome as part of Wrestle Kingdom 14 night one.

It was announced in October that Bushiroad -- the parent company of NJPW -- had purchased Stardom. The promotions are being kept separately.

New Japan World is owned by NJPW and TV Asahi, while Stardom is on a rival network.

Wrestle Kingdom night one is taking place on Saturday, January 4, with the show being headlined by Kazuchika Okada vs. Kota Ibushi for the IWGP Heavyweight Championship and Jay White vs. Tetsuya Naito for the IWGP Intercontinental title. The winners of those matches will face off on night two on January 5, with the winner becoming a double champion.
