This weekend, New Japan Pro Wrestling returns with fans in attendance, for the first time in a number of months, due to the Covid-19 outbreak around the world.
Both events, The New Japan Cup and Dominion, will take place at Osaka Jo Hall with strict special requirements in place for those attending. Masks will be mandatory, as well as providing contact information on the back of the ticket stubs that will be collected upon entry, as well as temperature checks.
New Japan Pro Wrestling have been a shining light during the Covid-19 crisis, protecting it’s performers and staff throughout, and continue to do so with these new requirements for those attending the shows this weekend. Full details can be found here: https://www.njpw1972.com/76040
The New Japan Cup began on June 16th, and has been performed in front of no fans, but has given us some incredible matches, leading up to this weekend’s events.
Some performers are still absent, due to the current Covid-19 restrictions, for example KENTA is based in the USA, Will Ospreay based in the UK, are unable to travel due to current travel restrictions.
