Chaos is a professional wrestling stable, primarily performing in the New Japan Pro-Wrestling (NJPW) promotion. The group was formed in 2009, when nearly all the members of the Great Bash Heel stable turned on GBH leader Togi Makabe and reformed under new leader Shinsuke Nakamura. Soon after, the new group was named Chaos, with Nakamura as the leader and the common goal of resurrecting the Strong Style, which Nakamura felt was abandoned after the departures of bearers Antonio Inoki and Shinya Hashimoto. As the leader of Chaos, Shinsuke Nakamura was one of NJPW's top wrestlers, winning the IWGP Heavyweight Championship and the IWGP Intercontinental Championship as well as the 2011 G1 Climax and the 2014 New Japan Cup. Since its founding, Chaos has added several new members, most notably Kazuchika Okada, who has held the IWGP Heavyweight Championship four times and won the G1 Climax tournament in 2012 and 2014, as well as the 2013 New Japan Cup. Okada became the leader of Chaos after Nakamura's departure from New Japan, and even succeeded Hiroshi Tanahashi as the promotion's “ace,” or top star. Rocky Romero has also enjoyed a noteworthy level of success as a member of Chaos, winning the IWGP Junior Heavyweight Tag Team Championship a record eight times: twice with Davey Richards, twice with Alex Koslov as the Forever Hooligans, and four times (plus the 2016 Super Jr. Tag Tournament) with Trent Barreta as Roppongi Vice. Chaos originally was the only villainous group in New Japan and they feuded with every group within New Japan. In 2013, Chaos started feuds with two other villainous groups, Suzuki-gun and Bullet Club, which led to the stable being portrayed in a more sympathetic way. After Takashi Iizuka and Yujiro Takahashi jumped to Suzuki-gun and Bullet Club, Chaos finalized its transition into full fan favorites.

Styles and Okada defeated 2015 G1 Climax winner Hiroshi Tanahashi in the main event of Wrestle Kingdom 10 in Tokyo Dome to retain the IWGP Heavyweight Championship. Hours after the event it was reported that Nakamura had given his notice to NJPW on the morning of January 4, announcing that he was leaving the promotion for WWE. Nakamura remained under NJPW contract and was expected to finish off his contracted dates with the promotion before leaving. On January 12, NJPW confirmed Nakamura's upcoming departure and announced he would also be stripped of the IWGP Intercontinental Championship. Nakamura handed in the title on January 25, officially ending his fifth reign. Nakamura wrestled his last match under his NJPW contract on January 30, where he, Okada and Ishii defeated Hirooki Goto, Hiroshi Tanahashi and Katsuyori Shibata.
