A wrestling fight was performed Monday inside a bullet train car on a Nozomi Shinkansen bullet train in Japan traveling between Tokyo and Nagoya at speeds of up to 285 kph.
The event was organized by the Tokyo-based professional wrestling club DDT Pro-Wrestling, and Minoru Suzuki and Sanshiro Takagi wrestled in the small aisle, launching swift moves as fast as the train that fans were travelling.
The group booked the entire car, taking advantage of a package plan offered by Central Japan Railway Co. that permits users to charter a train car on a one-car basis.
DDT has previously held matches outside of the ring in locations such as a bookshop and a campground. The organizers planned the event with the idea of having brawlers wrestling on Shinkansen bullet train in Japan.
The car’s 75 seats were gone in less than 30 minutes. Fighters were not permitted to destroy any aspect of the train’s interior. Following the fight, some participants took the train back to their homes.
Suzuki triumphed after a 30-minute struggle.
