Originally published at All Star Junior Festival results: talent from multiple promotions clash at Korakuen Hall
The All Star Junior Festival, featuring wrestlers from over 20 promotions, took place earlier on Wednesday.
The show was organized by New Japan Pro Wrestling, and was produced by NJPW talent Hiromu Takahashi, who also competed in the six-man main card opener.
The pay-per-view showcased talent from, among others, New Japan Pro Wrestling, All Japan Pro Wrestling, CMLL, Pro Wrestling NOAH, DDT Pro-Wrestling, Dragon Gate, and GLEAT.
A portion of the proceeds from the PPV will be donated in support of Shinjiro Otani, who suffered partial paralysis after a spinal injury in April 2022.
Jushin “Thunder” Liger made a surprise appearance to read a message from Otani.
Rocky Romero also appeared, saying he wants to bring the All Star Junior Festival to the United States.
