New Japan Pro-Wrestling To Address Future In Online Media Conference Next Week
New Japan Pro Wrestling will address their future in an online press conference next week.
The promotion announced on their social media accounts that they will host a media conference regarding their future on Tuesday, June 9 at noon JST (11 p.m. EST). It’s unknown what exactly the full announcement will entail, but it’s expected to include more details about protocols when New Japan resumes running live events.
The press conference will be available to watch for free on NJPW World and YouTube.
NJPW President Harold Meij had previously said the company would not run any live events until the state of emergency was lifted in Japan; that order was finally lifted on May 25. Bushiroad, NJPW and Stardom’s parent company, also announced that both rosters will undergo COVID-19 antibody testing. The promotion has not hosted any live events since February 26.
