The pro wrestling world is a vibrant place in 2019 with plenty of opportunities out there. This doesn’t seem to be changing in 2020. Now two of NJPW’s top names aren’t going anywhere.

It was revealed via social media that both Hiroshi Tanahashi and Yuji Nagata have re-signed with New Japan Pro Wrestling. Tanahashi wrote on Twitter in a message translated from Japanese:

“The player contract with New Japan Pro Wrestling has been updated. I will do my best next year. Thank you!!”

Nagata also wrote about signing a new NJPW contract on Christmas Eve. It seemed like the perfect time to do it.


“Christmas Eve this year is really cold. It may be the coldest in the past few years?! [Laughs] Such a contract was renewed today. Thank you for New Japan Pro-Wrestling Hiroshi Nagata in 2020.”

New Japan Pro Wrestling is much like any other pro wrestling company. They need to keep top stars in order to secure their future. It appears that they are on the right track with these two contract extensions.

I love pro wrestling and hate BS. These two things drive me. Years of experience in writing, journalism, and digging exclusive insider info for Ringside News. Worked in finance before realizing pro wrestling journalism made much less sense. Pro beachballs at pro wrestling shows, pro dives if someone catches, anti bullies, olives, and pineapples on pizza.
