Report: Bushiroad Revenue Totaled $13.3 Million From November Through January

Details on Bushiroad's latest quarterly report.

According to Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer, Bushiroad took in $13.3 million worth of revenue from November 2020 through January 2021. The revenue is the combined totals of New Japan Pro-Wrestling and Stardom, which are both under the Bushiroad banner.

Meltzer notes those numbers are down 19.5% from last year and the decline over the six-month period is 17.4 percent NJPW and Stardom have run a live event schedule during the pandemic, but attendance has been reduced to protect the health and safety of performers and fans.

NJPW held its annual Wrestle Kingdom event during the quarter, but attendance was limited across the two nights. Wrestle Kingdom 14 in 2019 drew a combined 70,071 fans for both nights while Wrestle Kingdom 15 drew a combined 20,490 fans.

New Japan World, NJPW's online subscription service, currently sits at 116,000 paid subscribers.

NJPW's next big event will be Sakura Genesis on April 4 where Kota Ibushi will make the first defense of his IWGP World Heavyweight Title against Will Ospreay.
