AJPW Champion Carnival dates back to 1973. The tournament has been won by the likes of Vader, Keiji Mutoh, Minoru Suzuki, and Stan Hansen.
The 2020 tournament was initially canceled due to COVID-19, but was held in September. Zeus won the tournament, defeating 2019 Champion Kento Miyahara in the finals.
