This year’s Wrestling Dontaku event features a stacked card of matches. Showcasing the growing roster of talent, this could prove to be one of the most exciting cards for NJPW from top to bottom since WrestleKingdom.

All of these matches and shows can be seen on New Japan World which is around $8.33 a month. English commentary is available for the big shows but as we always say, without the commentary or with Japanese commentary, it’s pretty much the same as watching a pro wrestling event live.
