The pro wrestling world is very unpredictable and it also seems to be consolidating as well. NJPW has received criticism for not featuring women’s wrestling in the past, but now their parent company owns STARDOM.
Yahoo Japan reports that Bushiroad, the company that owns New Japan Pro Wrestling has purchased STARDOM.
It is reported that the talks to buy STARDOM have been going since early September. Bushiroad has had interest in buying them since the Spring, but the deal was just confirmed.
Dave Meltzer noted on Wrestling Observer Radio that this likely won’t mean that female matches will be inserted into NJPW events. It does open up the possibility if they ever do want to collaborate. This is especially true with their North American tours.
