Rolling Stone has published a new article on Chris Jericho helping to boost New Japan Pro Wrestling’s American audience, and below is an article excerpt:
With a hall-of-fame name such as Jericho sticking around for more matches, the Japanese wrestling company’s push to grow its English-speaking fanbase has gotten even more aggressive, following a year that saw NJPW put on its first live events in the United States, with broadcasting support from American entertainment mogul Mark Cuban and his AXS television network (where NJPW currently airs Friday nights at 8 p.m. ET). But more noteworthy than the company’s business strategy, NJPW has captured the eyes – and the heart – of professional wrestling fans across the globe through competitive and unpredictable entertainment.
