On night 2 of Wrestle Kingdom 16, Pro Wrestling NOAH invaded New Japan Pro Wrestling. Led by former IWGP Heavyweight Champion Keiji Mutoh, the entire NOAH roster headed to the ring after the NEVER Openweight Six-Man Tag Team Match.
Members of the NOAH roster took turns addressing the crowd as they hyped up the upcoming NJPW vs. Pro Wrestling NOAH event on Saturday. The event will be regarded as the third night of Wrestle Kingdom 16.
NJPW star and former IWGP World Heavyweight Champion Shingo Takagi came down to the ring and stood face-to-face with the entire NOAH roster. He was accompanied by his Los Ingobernables de Japon stablemates Bushi and Hiromu Takahashi.
All three men stood on the apron and engaged in a verbal altercation with the Pro Wrestling NOAH stars. Eventually, the latter claimed that they came to pick a fight, as Takagi and LIJ, for a brief moment, teased fighting the roster all by himself.
However, 'The Dragon' made the right choice and exited. The Pro Wrestling NOAH stars continued on the microphone, stating that they are the elite of professional wrestling.
They also claimed that NOAH would change the pecking order of Japanese wrestling and become the top promotion in the country.
