We heard you loud and clear… Professional wrestling is getting its own night on AXS TV! Starting on July 13th, WOW – Women of Wrestling and New Japan Pro Wrestling will be airing every Saturday night.
Starting on July 13th at 8/7c, WOW is back to relive unforgettable moments from season one, such as the three-way Championship brawl between Tessa Blanchard, Jungle Grrrl and Santana Garrett. This 8-week event will lead up to the season two premiere, which airs on September 7th at 8/7c. This 24-episode season will be packed with talent, spectacular bouts, pageantry and bitter feuds, and a single elimination tournament where the winner of the WOW Tag-Team Championship will be crowned. David McLane and Stephen Dickey will provide analysis and commentary as a slate of new and returning Superheroes vie to take WOW’s coveted belt from reigning champion Tessa Blanchard.
New Japan Pro Wrestling will follow WOW – Women of Wrestling at 9/8c on Saturday nights. To set the stage for NJPW’s move to Saturdays, AXS TV will present a special live broadcast of Night 1 of the promotion’s highly anticipated G1 CLIMAX 29 Tournament in Dallas on July 6 at 6/5c. The event kicks off a six-week stretch of same-day, near-live coverage of the G1 Climax, which is universally recognized as the greatest tournament in professional wrestling. The tournament is expected to include thrilling matches featuring IWGP Heavyweight Champion Kazuchika Okada; “The Golden Star” Kota Ibushi; Los Ingobernables de Japón trio Tetsuya Naito, EVIL, and SANADA; “The Master of The Century” Hiroshi Tanahashi and Bullet Club leader Jay White. Every Saturday night, AXS TV will deliver two hours of coverage of NJPW’s Saturday G1 CLIMAX events that will be voiced by acclaimed play-by-play broadcaster Kevin Kelly. AXS TV’s same-day coverage will continue through the tournament’s A Block Final on August 10, followed by special presentations of the B Block Final on August 17 and Tournament Final on August 24.
WOW and NJPW previously aired as part of AXS TV’s Friday Night Fights block featuring AXS TV Fights, which will continue to air LIVE on Friday nights.
