WWE will have a live special on 7/4

On NXT tonight, it was announced in a taped insertion into the show by William Regal that there will be a live special from Sumo Hall in Tokyo on 7/4 that will feature Kevin Owens vs. Finn Balor for the NXT title, which presumably would be a title change.

The show will start at 6:30 a.m. Eastern time.  That would be 8:30 p.m. in Japan, so it could be only part of the show will air on the WWE Network since the show is scheduled for a 7 p.m. start.

That show will also include Brock Lesnar vs. Kofi Kingston and also include a John Cena main event and a Chris Jericho match. 

This will come one day before New Japan has its biggest since the Tokyo Dome on 7/5 in Osaka with A.J. Styles vs. Kazuchika Okada for the IWGP title.
