The third night of Wrestle Kingdom 16 will be an inter-promotional event as it will feature wrestlers from NJPW and NOAH colliding against one another.
The officials confirmed this news through a press conference that Night 3 will feature NJPW vs NOAH at the Yokohama Arena on January 8, 2022.
The promotion even released a poster for it that features Shingo Takagi, Kazuchika Okada, and Hiroshi Tanahashi from the side of NJPW whereas Katsuhiko Nakajima, Kaito Kiyomiya, and Keiju Muto are representing NOAH.
