Tetsuya Naito Urges All Wrestlers in Japan to Draw Crowds

By: R. Faliani

Despite the historical event that was All Together in its third edition, one of the most talked about topics in the world of pro wrestling today came from the event itself but not the way the United Japan Pro-Wrestling group wants it to be. All Together drew just 4,583 in attendance. In comparison to last year’s event and the 2011 edition, this number is a big warning sign for all of pro wrestling amidst a change as big as what we’re seeing. Tetsuya Naito, who was participating in the event was visibly frustrated by this and demanded all wrestlers in Japan to start thinking about drawing more people to pro wrestling as a whole. Naito is one of the top draws in Japan as of now, but even he could see what was wrong.

Naito reflected on the fact the whole pro wrestling landscape lost to Naoya Inoue in terms of drawing crowds, and even questioned the future of All Together as an event for charity. Naito spoke for his partners and colleagues and said he was disappointed at everything that happened and even argued about the need for All Together to be held in Nippon Budokan and not in the area that was hit by disaster. This was also a thing Hiromu Takahashi said because he offered All Together to be a free show in the struck area. What we know after this show is that the landscape of pro wrestling met a cruel truth, and has to get up from this.
