New Japan Pro Wrestling issued the following press release to announce its November return to California.
During the Super J-Cup event on August 24, NJPW’s return to the Bay Area was announced with New Japan Showdown in San Jose on Saturday November 9. We’re excited to announce that this event will be joined by a second card in Los Angeles on Monday November 11.
New Japan Showdown in Los Angeles will emanate from LA’s Globe Theatre. Earlier this year, NJPW hit the Globe Theater as part of the New Beginning in USA tour. That night, Roppongi Vice reformed for one night only for a wild main event; what could happen when all the stars of New Japan return?
Stay tuned to njpw1972.com for more information on tickets and participating wrestlers as it becomes available.
Powell’s POV: NJPW previously announced the Showdown event for November 9, so the announcement of the LA show is the new news. We’ll pass along the updates regarding the talent for both shows once the company makes those announcements. We will be seeking reports from both shows.
