In a recent interview with Tokyo Sports, STARDOM Executive Producer Rossy Ogawa discussed several topics, including the news that STARDOM and New Japan Pro Wrestling are creating an IWGP Women’s Championship.

“This belt will be operated and managed by STARDOM, but it has a different meaning from the STARDOM belt, I think it is a belt created to send out a message to the world and in a world of gender equality.

The existing STARDOM belts also have a history, so we will continue to manage them as well and let the audience decide which belt is the best. When BUSHIROAD came into power, I thought it would be good to have the IWGP belt, I think it is also because we are now in the third year of the new system and our recent achievements have been recognized.”
