From NJPW:

Wrestle Kingdom 16 night two on January 5 2022 will see the best of STARDOM compete in a special matchup.

This marks the fifth time STARDOM has been a part of NJPW events. January 4 2020 and January 5 2021 saw STARDOM showcase matches for live crowds in the Tokyo Dome, while September 4 & 5 saw kickoff matches at Wrestle Grand Slam in MetLife Dome.

In 2020, the first night of Wrestle Kingdom 14 featured a dark match for the live crowd with Mayu Iwatani & Arisa Hoshiki defeating Giulia & the late Hana Kimura.

The following year saw two matches on the second night with Utami Hayashishita, Saya Kamitani & AZM over Himeka, Maika & Natsupoi followed by a tag match with Syuri & Giulia over Mayu Iwatani & Tam Nakano. In 2021, the matches aired on the pre-show for New Japan World subscribers.

The match for night two of Wrestle Kingdom 16 has not been announced yet.

STARDOM is building towards its biggest show ever on December 29th at Sumo Hall featuring the rematch between Utami Hayashishita and Syrui for the Wonder of Stardom Championship.
