WWE announces huge matches for their annual Japan tour

Arindam Paul / 16 June 2016

Last year, WWE hosted their first ever WWE Network special live event at Japan with the headline “Beast in the East”, featuring the beast himself, Brock Lesnar. The show saw a huge success and so WWE will continue the tradition, this year, too by conducting the annual tour of Japan. Not only in Japan, the tour will be conducted in the places such as Honolulu, Hawaii, as per the previous reports and if the speculations get right, Brock Lesnar will make a special appearance at the live event of Honolulu making his return to WWE after Wrestlemania.



The match card for the Japan tour has been published and wrestlingINC.com reports that the former WWE World Heavyweight Champion, returning Seth Rollins has been added to the card. Below given is the card of the schedule (courtesy SportsKeeda.com)

Last year the event was aired on WWE Network as a special event.

Previously, WWE has announced another blockbuster live event at the Madison Square Garden in July.
