President Taro Okada on STARDOM’s Global Vision

By: Jeff Brown

STARDOM President Taro Okada recently discussed STARDOM and their global expansion. The company, which recently held American Dream 2024 In The Keystone State over Wrestlemania weekend, looks to be making new steps in running shows on an international scale. The company has had talent appear on NJPW shows as well as Ring of Honor and AEW programs, but has been more Japanese-focused under previous management.

“I heard from New Japan of America’s office that there hadn’t been any plans to run a Stardom show in the USA [since 2019] until now. So, I wondered if the change in management would mean there was a possibility of changing these rules to let us promote a show in the USA again.”

The company has a large appeal overseas and looks to capitalize on the growth they have made in recent years by showcasing many of their stars in the United States and elsewhere. “Up until now, we hadn’t had the opportunity to see the wrestlers’ dreams [of wrestling abroad] and seeing how they fare against international competitors while seeing their sense of global appeal.”

STARDOM has recently held its big event, Stardom All-Star Grand Queendom 2024, and that domestic show drew a large crowd of over 2700 fans. Now President Okada’s vision is beyond their home market.

“I wanted to show the world that STARDOM is where the best women’s professional wrestling is. When I say ‘best women’s professional wrestling’, that includes the work of Rossy Ogawa in the last thirteen years. We want to get that out into the world, and to think about looking outside of the domestic audience.”
