NJPW announces 'Wrestle Grand Slam' stadium events for May

NJPW has announced two stadium shows that will take place in May.

The company has announced Wrestle Grand Slam, an event that will take place on two nights. The first event will take place on May 15 at Yokohama Stadium, and the second event will take place on May 29 at the Tokyo Dome. 

This will be the first Tokyo Dome event outside of January in 16 years. This will also be the first time that NJPW will run an event in Yokohama Stadium, which is an open-air baseball stadium. This is similar to last year’s Summer Struggle in Jingu event, which was also held in an outdoor stadium.

New Japan continues their schedule with the 49th Anniversary Show that will be held this morning. The New Japan Cup will run through March 21, where a winner will be crowned. For April, NJPW has Sakura Genesis on April 4 at Sumo Hall. Wrestling Dontaku follows on May 3 and 4 in Fukuoka.
