NJPW Announces New Japan Showdown in Los Angeles

New Japan Showdown will take place on November 11th.

New Japan Showdown

New Japan Pro Wrestling will be returning to Los Angeles on November 11th for New Japan Showdown. The event will take place at the Globe theatre. The promotion previously announced a show in San Jose as well for November 9th.

“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?” An NJPW press release for the event reads.

On January 30th this year, NJPW drew an estimated 530 fans to the Globe Theatre for the first night of the New Beginning in USA tour. The other nights on the tour in January took place in Charlotte and Nashville.

Matches for New Japan Showdown will be announced closer to the event.
