Fite TV has closed a deal with New Japan Pro Wrestling to stream the Wrestle Kingdom 13 show- which will take place from the Tokyo Dome in Japan, on their Fite TV platform.

The plan, as it stands, is for the show to air live at 3 am EST in both Japanese and English on January 4, priced at $34.99. Users familiar with the Fite TV app will already know that the show will be available on the various platforms and devices they own and operate. The show will also subsequently be available for VOD replays.

So far, the announced matches include:

IWGP Heavyweight Championship: Kenny Omega (c) vs. Hiroshi Tanahashi
IWGP Intercontinental Championship: Chris Jericho (c) vs. Tetsuya Naito
