New Japan Pro Wrestling is coming to the midwest.

Monday night on the NJPW of America Twitter feed–and shortly after mirrored on the NJPW Global feed–the company announced a “pay-per-view event” at the Odeum Expo Center in Chicago, called Windy City Riot.

The initial list of talent announced for the show includes former IWGP World Heavyweight Champion Will Ospreay, Jeff Cobb, Tomohiro Ishii, Jay White, FinJuice, Yuji Nagata, “Filthy” Tom Lawlor, JONAH, Fred Rosser, and Brody King, with more to be named in the weeks ahead.

The event marks NJPW’s debut in Chicago, and the company says tickets will go on sale on Friday, February 4, at noon CST.
