Huge political move: New Japan sending Jushin Liger to work August NXT Brooklyn event

By Dave Meltzer, WrestlingObserver.com

In what is a major political move, New Japan Pro Wrestling has booked Jushin Liger to appear on WWE's August 22nd NXT show in Brooklyn, NY. He'll face Tyler Breeze.

New Japan had already booked Shinsuke Nakamura, Kazuchika Okada, and Kushida for ROH that same night, also in Brooklyn as part of their Field Of Honor event.

There are other significant moves being made behind-the-scenes regarding NXT and ROH that don't involve New Japan that are likely to become evident in short order.
