New Japan’s Invasion Attack set to take place hours before WWE’s WrestleMania
Jan 31, 2014 - by Steve Gerweck
New Japan has released time and venue information for three upcoming cards later this year. The first event is billed as a “social welfare charity” event on March 29th at Okinawa Prefectural Budokan Arena. Second is a Road to Invasion Attack card set for April 3rd at Korakuen Hall in Tokyo. Finally, Invasion Attack 2014 on April 6th at Sumo Hall in Tokyo.
In a situation similar to last year, Invasion Attack will be taking place the same day as WrestleMania for most of the world, as Invasion Attack 2014 is set to begin just sixteen hours before WWE’s flagship show WrestleMania.
No card has been announced, but Invasion Attack is a major show, which means it will likely be available worldwide on iPPV. Invasion Attack typically features several matches with wrestlers from outside New Japan, such as last year’s show which saw Bob Sapp, Akebono, and wrestlers from CMLL and the NWA.
For fans of New Japan and WWE, April 6th looks to be a packed day.
