The NJPW television deal in the United States and United Kingdom has been finalized

Dave Meltzer reported an update on the new television deal in this week's Wrestling Observer Newsletter. He has since reported that a deal has been finalized, and has been since December. 

"I’ll just say that it’s not something people would consider major," he wrote in this week's newsletter in regards to the deal.

During Wrestle Kingdom 15 earlier this month, a short video aired confirming that NJPW would be returning to television in the US and would also be appearing on UK television. The company has yet to confirm when or where they will be airing.

NJPW previously aired on AXS TV in the United States from 2014 until 2019, when they were dropped by new AXS TV owners Anthem Sports and Entertainment, who own Impact Wrestling. NJPW has since launched a new subsidiary called NJPW of America, which has ran tapings during the COVID-19 pandemic. NJPW Strong has since been airing every Friday on NJPW World.
