New Japan Pro Wrestling Comes To Chicago For The First Time With Windy City Riot’s Stacked Card


For the first time, New Japan Pro Wrestling (NJPW) is coming to Chicago! Tonight, the Odeum Expo Center in Villa Park, IL will play host to the sold out Windy City Riot PPV event.

NJPW did not hold back in their first event, either, as the card is rather stacked, and will certainly be appreciated by hardcore wrestling fans.

Main eventing the card will be an incredible matchup between Jon Moxley (also known as Dean Ambrose, former WWE champion) and Will Ospreay. The match came about after Ospreay called out Moxley, leading to some epic video promos from Moxley.

Moxley later returned for another promo to accept the challenge from Ospreay

So here’s our final promo for the main event tonight…

The Rest of the Card

The card is filled with plenty of other matches that pro wrestling fans will be excited about as well. In the co-main event, we get a matchup between Japanese legends Tomohiro Ishii and Minoru Suzuki.

United States champion Jay White will hold an open challenge for his title against a mystery opponent

One of professional wrestling’s most popular factions, The Bullet Club, will go up against the United Empire in a 12 man tag team match. The Bullet Club features members such as Karl Anderson and Doc Gallows, formerly of WWE.

Also of note on the card is a Chicago Street Fight. I can only imagine how that will go…
