In a post on his official Twitter account, New Japan Pro Wrestling President Takami Ohbari addressed the growth of the NJPW STRONG brand following the success of the two-day NJPW STRONG Independence Day 2023 events at the Korakuen Hall in Tokyo, Japan.

The post reads, “When we launched this brand, we dreamed of growing it in the US and one day holding a NJPW STRONG at a packed Korakuen Hall. Our dream came true. This success is not only thanks to the fans who watched the show yesterday and today, but also to the fans in the US and all over the world who have supported NJPW STRONG until today. We will pursue the next dream.”
