About New Japan Pro Wrestling (NJPW)
Founded by Japanese wrestling legend Antonio Inoki in 1972, New Japan Pro Wrestling can be considered the WWE of the East. Prior to 1972, Inoki had been a part of the Japan Pro Wrestling Alliance which he left to build the NJPW, known today as the biggest wrestling promotion in the country.
In addition to being the largest in Japan, NJPW is also the second largest pro wrestling promotion in the world when it comes to attendance and generated revenue. Over the years, it has had various types of affiliations with the National Wrestling Alliance as well as agreements with a number of professional wrestling and MMA promotions around the world including the WWE and WCW.
Unique Aspects of NJPW
As a top-notch wrestling promotion, NJPW is somewhat different to the kind of promotions fans are used to here in North America. However, there is no shortage of excitement and intensity of competition. In fact, some even consider the NJPW to be more demanding owing to the harder-hitting style of the wrestlers. You can experience all this by getting New Japan Pro Wrestling tickets.
There are a number of things that set NJPW apart, the most obvious of which is the fighting style. It is commonly known as “Strong Style” and is straight out of the conventional Japanese wrestling playbook. Competitors in an NJPW ring integrate a fair bit of judo, martial arts and jiu-jitsu into their set of moves.
This leads to a more hard-hitting approach to fighting with lots of kicks and stiff strikes involved. Most NJPW wrestlers typically use a finishing move that is a combination of a strike along with the usual grapple that fans are so used to seeing in promotions like the WWE and Impact Wrestling.
Furthermore, the NJPW doesn’t follow a weekly schedule like most promotions do in the West. Over in Japan, shows are held on a bi-weekly basis which is more like a wrestling tour. This is followed by a couple of weeks off so that the competitors can rest and recuperate. These “tours” normally lead to PPVs. Also, when it comes to count outs, NJPW rules call for a 20-count as compared to the 10-count used in the WWE and other North American wrestling companies.
Wrestle Kingdom is the biggest event on NJPW’s annual calendar taking place in January at the Tokyo Dome. It is like the WrestleMania of NJPW. Other major shows include The New Beginning and the NJPW Anniversary Show among others.
Big Names Past and Present
NJPW’s founding president Antonio Inoki is also one of the greatest wrestlers in the history of the promotion. He was the inaugural IWGP Heavyweight Champion and also held other top titles like the WWF World Martial Arts Heavyweight Championship, NWF Heavyweight Championship and the NWA United National Championship.
Seiji Sakaguchi is another big name who held the NWF North American Heavyweight Championship as well as the WWF North American Heavyweight Championship. Other legendary players on the circuit include former IWGP Tag Team Champion Akira Maeda and former junior heavyweight title holder Kuniaki Kobayashi. All four of them are part of the NJPW Greatest Wrestlers, the hall of fame of the New Japan promotion.
The NJPW has a long history of producing top-notch competitors. The likes of former IWGP Heavyweight Champions AJ Styles and Shinsuke Nakamura, two of the biggest superstars on the WWE roster today, had hugely successful stints in NJPW before striking gold in the WWE.
Nakamura, a three-time IWGP Heavyweight Champion, is one of Japanese wrestling’s most successful exports to date. Popular WWE tag team duo Luke Gallows and Karl Anderson also spent time in NJPW. Apart from that, son of WWE Hall of Famer Dusty Rhodes and former WWE superstar Cody Rhodes was also associated with the NJPW until recently.
