If you want to watch NJPW’s Windy City Riot card in a couple of months, you might need your NJPW World login credentials nearby.

The English feed for NJPW’s Windy City Riot card on April 12 will be available via pay-per-view on NJPW World, per an announcement from the promotion this week. A price for the broadcast has not been revealed yet.

Top NJPW U.S. cards have been available more recently for PPV purchase through Triller TV (formerly known as FITE TV). It is unclear at the moment if NJPW World will be exclusively airing Windy City Riot 2024, or if Triller TV will also carry the show.

Windy City Riot is expected to take place at the Wintrust Arena in Chicago, Illinois in just under two months. It was announced this week that IWGP World Heavyweight Champion Tetsuya Naito will face AEW’s Jon Moxley on the card if he still holds the promotion’s top title by that date. A junior heavyweight clash between Hiromu Takahashi and Mustafa Ali is also expected to take place.

Despite the show having just a couple of matchups announced, there has already been a high demand for live tickets. WrestleTix reported this week that NJPW has distributed over 5,000 tickets, with roughly 1,500 seats still available.

The upper section of the Wintrust Arena was opened earlier this month after all lower bowl tickets were distributed.
