This summer, we were telling you Pro Wrestling Chaos would close its doors next February. We are happy to announce to you that won’t happen. NXT UK stars Flash Morgan Webster and “Wild Boar” Mike Hitchman announced today they will be purchasing Pro Wrestling Chaos in February 2020. The promotion is based in Bristol, England. Nick Aldis once defended the NWA title there, and the ROH and Impact Wrestling titles have been defended at PWC events as well.

In his statement, Flash Morgan Webster and Wild Board explained, “Tonight we officially announced that we’ll be purchasing Pro Wrestling Chaos in February 2020. This is our way of saying thank you to Dave, Nick, Rob, and Chaos fans for believing in us. We want to continue to give these loyal fans a promotion to call home while ensuring young British wrestlers still have a platform that has been crucial in our development so they can learn, grow, and flourish.”

Earlier this week, Hiroshi Tanahashi told Tokyo Sports if his upcoming match against AEW World Champion Chris Jericho at Wrestle Kingdom 14 on January 5 is a non-title bout, he felt if he did win, and Jericho wanted a rematch, the title should be added to the mix. In the video below, Jericho has since responded and has agreed if Tanahashi wins, he’ll give the challenger a rematch for the AEW Championship.

In the video below, Jericho has since responded and has agreed if Tanahashi wins, he’ll give the challenger a rematch for the AEW Championship. “What you don’t know is I speak and read perfect Japanese and I read what you said about the Tokyo Dome,” Jericho began. “You said if you can beat me that you would enter the forbidding portal and request a title shot for the AEW Championship. I thought it’s a great idea. So, ‘Le Champion’ asked the Chairman of the Board, the owner of AEW, Tony Khan, if it was okay to grant your request, and he said ‘yes.’ So, if you can beat me in the Tokyo Dome, I will give you a championship match for the AEW Title.”

NJPW released this long interview of the IWGP Heavyweight Champion Kazuchika Okada, one week before Wrestle Kingdom 14.
