NJPW Classic Programming Schedule On AXS TV Revealed

Several big matches from recent years

New Japan Pro-Wrestling programming is slated to return to AXS TV today, initially with several classic episodes before a weekly series comprised of new content begins on Thursday, March 3. 

AXS have now announced their lineup of classic programming and the January 20 show will put a spotlight on the Wrestle Kingdom 12 match between Kenny Omega and Chris Jericho for the IWGP United States Heavyweight Title - arguably the most important match of the last 10 years as it led to the formation of AEW. 

Other matches to air between January 20 and February 24 include the G1 Climax 28 and 29 finals and Hiroshi Tanahashi vs. Jay White from the 2019 New Beginning In Osaka show which saw The Switchblade win the IWGP Heavyweight Championship.
