NJPW announces two Wrestle Grand Slam shows for September


NJPW has added two more Wrestle Grand Slam shows to its schedule. 

Wrestle Grand Slam in MetLife Dome will be a two-night event held on Saturday, September 4 and Sunday, September 5. 

The company also announced today that the Wrestle Grand Slam in Tokyo Dome event originally scheduled for May 29 will now be held on Sunday, July 25. That show will be headlined by IWGP World Heavyweight Champion Shingo Takagi making his first title defense, taking on Kota Ibushi. 

Additionally, the company announced that the Wrestle Grand Slam in Yokohama Stadium event has been canceled. That show was originally set to take place on May 15, but was postponed due to a state of emergency being declared due to the COVID-19 pandemic. 

The company released a statement that said that scheduling conflicts at Yokohama Stadium made setting a new date for that show in the near future impossible, so the decision was made to cancel. Ticket holders for that event will be refunded.
