NJPW Promise 'Significant Improvements' For Capital Collision Broadcast

After NJPW Windy City Riot was hampered by issues

New Japan Pro-Wrestling have promised 'significant improvements' for their Capital Collision pay-per-view broadcast on May 14 and the promotion have restructured their 'production pipeline' too.  

This comes after the recent Windy City Riot pay-per-view was hampered by numerous production issues, including outages of the pay-per-view feed and audio problems. The company apologised after the event and fans who contacted NJPW's customer service department were given refunds. 

Fans who purchased Windy City Riot will receive five FITE credits if they purchase Capital Collision, with the credits being automatically added to the user's account at checkout. 

NJPW also absolved FITE of any blame for the Windy City Riot show, writing: 'NJPW sets the highest of broadcast standards, and is very aware that Windy City Riot, through no fault of FITE, fell short of those standards.'

Four major matches have already been announced for Capital Collision, including a Four-Way for the IWGP United States Heavyweight Title. The event will air on FITE with a price point of $19.99. Check out the card below: 

  • Hiroshi Tanahashi (c) vs. Will Ospreay vs. Jon Moxley vs. Juice Robinson - IWGP United States Heavyweight Championship
  • Eddie Kingston vs. Tomohiro Ishii
  • Brody King vs. Minoru Suzuki
  • Kazuchika Okada & Trent Beretta vs. Jay White & Hikuleo
