New Japan Pro-Wrestling (新日本プロレス, Shin Nihon Puroresu) (NJPW), is a Japanese professional wrestling promotion based in Nakano, Tokyo. NJPW personnel consists of professional wrestlers, commentators, color commentators, ring announcers, referees, trainers, producers, bookers, and various other positions. Executives and board members are also listed.

Background

NJPW contracts typically range from developmental deals for dojo trainees to full-time contracts. Personnel appear on untelevised live events and on televised events which are aired on various broadcasters or on NJPW's own international streaming service, New Japan World.

Personnel is organized by their role in NJPW. The performer's ring name is listed on the left and their real name is on the right. This list also acknowledges which stable (referred to by NJPW as "units") a wrestler is a part of – this is listed as it is considered by NJPW to be a vital part of their product. "(L)" indicates the leader of the group.

As of 2023, there are seven central units in NJPW:

In addition to the promotion's seven central units, G・B・H is regarded by NJPW as a unit although they are now simply a tag team; NJPW additionally lists Seigigun as Yuji Nagata’s unit even though he is the group's sole member.[1] NJPW produces a U.S.-based internet television program titled NJPW Strong Live; Strong features its own distinct roster and units. Beginning in 2022, NJPW launched NJPW Tamashii, an Australasian-based subsidiary. Tamashii additionally features its own distinct roster and units. NJPW refers to their dojo trainees as "Young Lions".

As NJPW has working relationships with All Elite Wrestling (AEW), Consejo Mundial de Lucha Libre (CMLL), Total Nonstop Action Wrestling (TNA), Major League Wrestling (MLW), Revolution Pro Wrestling (RPW), Ring of Honor (ROH) and numerous Japanese promotions, wrestlers from these promotions may appear on NJPW events and have their home promotions or stables from their home promotions listed as their affiliated unit.
