New Japan Pro Wrestling’s second night of Wrestle Kingdom 14 is in the books. They drew just over 40,000 fans to the first night of the event. How did the second night fare?
Dave Meltzer noted on Wrestling Observer Radio that 30,063 paid fans attended night two of Wrestle Kingdom 14 in the Tokyo Dome. That brings the two night total to 70,071.
The large attendance for the first night resulted in 10,000 less fans attending the second night. There was a noticeable lack of enthusiasm from fans during the second night. This was mentioned by fans who watched the event live and on television.
Wrestle Kingdom 14 was a success all things considering. It was over 10 hours of pro wrestling, but they also set the stage for a lot of things to come. New Year’s Dash will continue what they started at Wrestle Kingdom 14 with a start time of 4:40 AM EST.
