NJPW announces press conference for June 8 regarding future events


New Japan Pro Wrestling is set to make an announcement soon in relation to future events.

The company announced this morning on social media that they will be holding an online press conference on Monday regarding future NJPW events. It will be held at 11:00 p.m. EST on NJPW World. 

NJPW President Harold Meij previously detailed a roadmap that would eventually lead to the return of live events. He said that they would only consider running shows until Japan lifts its country-wide state of emergency, the number of new infections decline, and when matches can take place in disinfected and safe settings. The emergency decleration was lifted for all parts of the country on May 25.

All NJPW wrestlers and staff will undergo extensive health checks when live events resume. NJPW's parent company Bushiroad also recently announced that both NJPW and Stardom rosters will undergo COVID-19 antibody testing.

Shows are expected to be held both in Japan and at NJPW’s dojo in Los Angeles. NJPW has not run any shows since February 26, a New Japan Road event.
