NJPW Classic Programming Schedule Revealed for AXS TV
Well what do we have here?
New Japan Pro-Wrestling is set to return to AXS TV today, featuring many classic programmes first, before a weekly series of new content debuts on Thursday, March 3.
The Wrestle Kingdom 12 bout between Kenny Omega and Chris Jericho for the IWGP United States Heavyweight Title - probably the most important event of the previous ten years as it led to the founding of AEW - will be the focus of AXS's legendary programming on January 20.
