    New Japan Pro Wrestling present their biggest event of the year, Wrestle Kingdom 15, on January 4th & 5th from the Tokyo Dome.

    The event will span over two nights, similar to Wrestle Kingdom 14 in January 2020.

    Wrestle Kingdom 15 will be held with a reduced capacity, due to the Covid-19 outbreak that has ripped through the world during 2020, which has halted international fans travelling to the event.
