Top New Japan Pro-Wrestling Stars Sign New Contracts


Both Hiroshi Tanahashi and Yuji Nagata have signed new contracts with New Japan Pro-Wrestling.

Tanahashi, the “Ace” of New Japan and an 8-time IWGP Heavyweight Champion, is slated to face Chris Jericho on night two of Wrestle Kingdom 14 on January 5th.

While Nagata, 51, has slowed down in recent years, he still works undercard tag team matches on most tours and is hands-on with many of the NJPW Young Lions and up-and-coming talents.
