List RulesVote up your favorite wrestlers on NJPW's roster.

The best current New Japan Pro-Wrestling (NJPW) members, as ranked by fans. Outside the States, NJPW has been taking over the wide world of professional wrestling. Founded in 1971, the Tokyo-based organization is the second largest in the world (behind the WWE). Icons like A.J. Styles, Kenny Omega, and even Chris Jericho have either previously wrestled or are currently signed with NJPW, and the athleticism and overall skill set of the wrestlers are second to none.

What separates NJPW from other wrestling staples is just how crazy (and long) the matches can get. Known for insane gimmicks and even crazier moves (finishers like the tiger bomb, which are outlawed in most wrestling organizations, are allowed), it’s no wonder NJPW’s becoming more popular in the West. 

This list includes every current member from the NJPW roster, but it’s up to you to vote up your favorites. And if you see someone missing, add them below!
