First Starrcade 1992 in Tokyo Dome Fantastic Story in Tokyo Dome
The first ever January 4 Dome show held by New Japan Pro Wrestling (NJPW) was called Starrcade 1992 in Tokyo Dome and would start the tradition of NJPW holding their biggest show of the year on January 4 in the Tokyo Dome, making it their Super Bowl or WrestleMania event. It was promoted in conjunction with the American based World Championship Wrestling (WCW) with the name "Starrcade" taken from WCW's December Pay-Per-View (PPV) event Starrcade. The show featured a mixure of NJPW and WCW wrestlers facing each other, with most of the matches that included WCW wrestlers being shown in North America as a PPV under the name WCW/New Japan Supershow II. The show drew 50,000 spectators for a gate of the equivalent of $3,700,000 at the exchange rate at the time. The show featured 12 matches, including two Dark matches, matches held before the PPV broadcast began. Six of the twelve bouts featured wrestlers from WCW. On the show Lex Luger successfully defended his WCW World Heavyweight Championship against Masahiro Chono, while the main event saw Riki Ch┼┬ìsh┼½ defeated Tatsumi Fujinami. The match unified the Greatest 18 Championship and the IWGP Heavyweight Championship. Japanese heavy metal band Show Ya performed live music between matches and performed theme music for a match where The Great Muta and Sting wrestled The Steiner Brothers.
