President Takami Ohbari’s New Year Address
Happy New Year to everyone.
Thank you for all your support through our 50th Anniversary year.
We will start 2023 with Wrestle Kingdom 17 in the Tokyo Dome on January 4. This will be the conclusion of our 50th Anniversary, as well as an Antonio Inoki memorial celebration. With the traditions of Fighting Spirit and Strong Style in our hearts, you will see the culmination of half a century of NJPW, and a major first step into our next 50 years.
Honoring tradition while innovating for the future, we vow not to fear change, but instead to leave fans surprised and enthralled as we personify the King of Sports name. We look forward to your continued support, and wish you all a happy and prosperous 2023.
January 1, 2023
Representative Director, New Japan Pro-Wrestling
