Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer is reporting that New Japan Pro Wrestling is very close to finalizing a new US TV deal and that the announcement could come at any time. They previously aired on AXS Tv prior to the station being purchased by Anthem, the parent company of IMPACT Wrestling, before getting cancelled in 2019.
Mike’s Take: Wonder if we will hear an announcement during tonight’s/tomorrow mornings Wrestle Kingdom show. This is huge news as their popularity in the states declined greatly when they lost their TV deal. There were rumors earlier in 2020 that Vice was looking to add wrestling to their station. Or could they return to AXS? Who knows, looking forward to finding out alongside everyone else.
