New Japan Pro Wrestling announced Sunday that Stardom matches set for both nights of September’s Wrestle Grand Slam will air live on New Japan World, complete with English commentary, for the first time.
The news comes two weeks after the initial announcement that Stardom would have a place on the two events. The participants have yet to be announced.
This isn’t the first time NJPW has showcased its sister company on its events, holding dark matches prior to Wrestle Kingdom in past years. However, broadcast restrictions with Japanese television partner Samurai TV prevented those matches from airing on New Japan World.
The following matches are set for the MetLife Dome in Saitama, Japan, on September 4th and 5th:
IWGP U.S. Champion Hiroshi Tanahashi vs. Kota Ibushi
King of Pro Wrestling Champion Chase Owens vs. Toru Yano in a no DQ, I Quit match
Kazuchika Okada vs. Jeff Cobb
IWGP World Champion Shingo Takagi vs. EVIL
IWGP Tag Team Champions Zack Sabre Jr. and Taichi vs. Tetsuya Naito and SANADA vs. YOSHI-HASHI and Hirooki Goto
IWGP Junior Heavyweight Champion Robbie Eagles vs. Hiromu Takahashi
Wrestle Grand Slam at MetLife Dome will see STARDOM showcase matches on both nights, on @njpwworld for the very first time!
LIVE and in English September 4 & 5!#STARDOM #njwgs https://t.co/NSQZyF7Xsm
