The New Japan Pro-Wrestling Wiki is an an English-language wiki covering New Japan Pro-Wrestling from the perspective of wrestling fans outside of Japan.  It's a source for those interested in New Japan to learn about the product, and for existing New Japan fans to share their knowledge.

This wiki is not affiliated with, maintained, or sponsored by New Japan Pro-Wrestling, Bushiroad, or any of their affiliates. This is an independent, unofficial site.

Standard formatting for articles is currently being developed, but contributors are advised to look to existing articles for guidance.  If you have information you'd like to share don't be afraid to add it in whatever way, and the editors will come by and clean it up for the time being.  Note that information not readily available from New Japan (event results, wrestler bios, etc.) needs a reliable source.
