WWE Japan has confirmed the events on July 1 and July 2 at the Sumo Hall in Tokyo are now sold out, according to Wrestling Inc. They have also announced several matches that are bound to get the WWE Universe excited and hoping both nights, or at least one, will be aired on the WWE Network.

The WWE has had many successful shows in Japan in the past, with one of the most recent ones, last year's 'The Beast in the East', having Brock Lesnar as its promoted star. This event also included Finn Balor winning the NXT Championship against Kevin Owens. It was also broadcasted on the WWE Network.

The most notable match that is happening on both nights is one for the Japanese fans, as Bray Wyatt will be taking on Shinsuke Nakamura. The New Face of Fear versus The King of Strong Style is going to be one that all WWE fans are going to enjoy.

Some of the other matches on the two sets of cards look rather entertaining as well. WWE World Heavyweight Champion Roman Reigns and former NJPW star AJ Styles will be battling one another on both nights with Kevin Owens included on July 1, and Chris Jericho as well on July 2. It's unclear at the moment if the title will be on the line for these matches.

Women's Champion Charlotte will also be competing on both nights as well, facing off against Natalya on July 1, and then Becky Lynch on July 2. NXT Women's Champion and Japanese superstar Asuka will also be wrestling on both nights with the same opponents but in the reverse order.

While there doesn't look to be much of a storyline behind Asuka's matches, Nakamura's clashes could be a different story. Wyatt was rumored to be turning face soon but going up against the Japanese star could mean this is being put on hold for a while unless he turns beforehand or at the event itself.

It will be very interesting to watch not only because it's bound to be a good card, but because it could provide a good direction for Wyatt's story entering SummerSlam season. Here is the full match card for both days:
