New Japan Pro-Wrestling Singapore Match-Ups and Wrestlers Announced for CharaExpo 2015



Wrestling fans unite! Kaname Tezuka, President of New Japan Pro-Wrestling (NJPW), also announced that WRESTLING WORLD 2015 in Singapore will be taking place at the dedicated NJPW Ring at CharaExpo. For 2 days, attendees will get the rare opportunity to watch a live wrestling match upfront featuring 12 professional wrestlers, including the likes of Jushin Thunder Liger, Captain New Japan and newly-crowned champions Hirooki Goto and Togi Makabe. The entire event is open for all to view while front-row seats will be ticketed. However, the affable, always-smiling Tezuka-san assured that the tickets will be affordable and more details will be revealed at a later date.

I don't know about you but I sure do get some fatigue from being inundated with all the anime and manga content sometimes. When that comes, I'll be attending the NJPW matches and maybe even getting some front-row seats. Come to think of it, how often do you get to watch professional Japanese wrestling matches in Singapore? Not to mention that they are organised by the top wrestling promotion in Japan and the largest in the world, just second to WWE. With such a diverse and balanced content spread, there's definitely something for all and something new for everyone to try at CharaExpo.

A promotional video for New Japan World Wrestling was shown at the press conference:
