The card for NJPW x STARDOM’s Historic X-Over has been finalized.
Historic X-Over gets its name from the fact that it will be the first-ever full cross-promotional wrestling show with equal representation from both New Japan and STARDOM. The event takes place on November 20th.
Previously, STARDOM wrestlers competed in one or two matches on a big NJPW card, such as at this year’s Wrestle Kingdom. But never before have New Japan and STARDOM wrestlers wrestled together and against each other in big matches.
The main event will be a tournament finals match to crown the inaugural IWGP Women’s Champion. This match will see Mayu Iwatani take on Kairi (the former Kairi Sane in WWE).
