WWE News: Triple H set to wrestle in Japan
What's the story?
In case you didn't know...
WWE hosts live events known as house shows in various different countries to maintain a connection with their global audience. These events give a chance to the people to see the wrestlers live in their local arena and interact with them. WWE is going to host such a house show in Tokyo, Japan on June 28 and 29 this year.
Triple H last wrestled at Super Showdown in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia last Saturday against Randy Orton in a one-on-one falls match. The match was generally criticized for being too slow paced and long.
The heart of the matter
WWE Japan released a video on their official Youtube channel confirming that Triple H is going to a part of the live event in Tokyo on June 28 this year. His opponent has not yet been revealed, but it will be interesting to know who is he going to wrestle against.
The Cerebral Assassin doesn't wrestle in many house shows since taking a role as Executive Vice-president in the company. So, his inclusion shows that the show is going to be a huge affair and WWE wants to maintain a good relationship with their Japanese fan base.
Other marquee matches that have been confirmed for the show are:
Seth Rollins vs Shinsuke Nakamura for Universal Championship
Becky Lynch vs Alexa Bliss for Raw Women's Championship
Samoa Joe vs Ricochet vs. Cesaro
The IIconics vs Asuka & Kairi Sane for women's tag team championship
Other big stars like AJ Styles, Braun Strowman, and Drew McIntyre are also scheduled to be a part of the show.
WWE Live Tokyo is scheduled for June 28 and 29. The card may change as both Seth Rollins and Becky Lynch are scheduled to defend their respective titles on WWE Stomping Grounds on June 23.
