~ Several events are still scheduled to take place in the venue before its closure on June 30. The building and land will be re-developed for the upcoming 2020 Tokyo Olympics. The building was originally opened in July of 1988 where it used to be a disco/live music venue, known as the MZA Ariake, before becoming known as Differ Ariake and the main home for Pro-Wrestling NOAH in 2000. Though an interesting note is that All Japan was the first to use the renamed building on July 1, 2000. Which is fitting as they are now the last for pro-wrestling to use it.

About BushidoRX

I have been following Japanese Pro Wrestling for 20 years now and I have also been doing some form of covering it either in news or results for nearly 15 years as well. I got my start in promotions like AJPW, NJPW, FMW and Michinoku Pro. With All Japan being my go to promotion till this very day. Throughout the years I have followed All Japan more closely than any of the others out there, and thus I have taken it upon myself to keep people informed with what is happening all throughout sport in Japan. If it does not appear on the news feed I either do not follow it closely enough to relate the information or it just not my go to promotion in general. Follow Puroresu Spirit, which is my personal site, as I do my best to keep you all informed with what is happening in the land of the rising sun.
