NJPW’s President Harold Meij reveals NJPW World has 40,000 subscribers from outside Japan

New Japan Pro Wrestling President Harold Meij spoke with The Mainichi where he discussed a number of topics. Among them, Meij talked about NJPW’s subscription streaming service, NJPW World and revealed during the interview that 40,000 out of the 100,000 total subscribers are from outside Japan:

“My thinking hasn’t changed since my time at Takara Tomy. I want to expand the fan-base regardless of age, gender or nationality,” Meij explains. “New Japan has fantastic content, so it has the possibility of picking up popularity overseas. At the moment, there are some 100,000 registered members on our video streaming service ‘New Japan Pro-Wrestling World,’ and 40,000 of them live outside Japan. I would like to aim for the international market with things like videos in English or events for foreign tourists.”
