Whenever the WWE decides to go on tour at any time during the year, it’s evident that they are going to advertise some epic matches.
Having just ended the European tour which saw Monday Night RAW and SmackDown LIVE take place in London, the stars of WWE will be gearing up for another tour in June as WWE’s blue brand heads to Japan.
The big news that was revealed earlier this week is that the WWE's tour of Japan in August will see Ronda Rousey in action. As that Japan event takes place around two months after the upcoming Money in the Bank event, we’ll know whether she heads into Osaka as the RAW Women’s Champion or not.
However, it’s another match WWE quietly announced for the June 30 event in Tokyo which has fans absolutely buzzing, although they do seem to be frustrated that there’s a chance the event might not be shown on the WWE Network.
With the stars of SmackDown LIVE representing the WWE on this tour, it’s been revealed that AJ Styles will defend his WWE Championship against Shinsuke Nakamura, Daniel Bryan and Samoa Joe in a Fatal 4-Way match.
Obviously, the card is subject to change meaning that the outcome of their Last Man Standing match at Money in the Bank could see The King of Strong Style head into his homeland with the title around his waist instead.
As expected, this WrestleMania-worthy match has fans absolutely buzzing that we are going to see all four men share one ring at the same time - when at one stage, there were doubts whether we’d ever see them in a WWE ring individually.
The frustration, though, is understandable as such a monumental occasion might not be shown on the WWE Network as it’s a regular house show; not a special event like the Greatest Royal Rumble in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia or even the Beast From The East event several years ago.
Considering Big Cass is now injured again, it seems as if Bryan could be elevated into the WWE Championship picture already.
Samoa Joe’s inclusion doesn’t come as a massive surprise, though, as there were rumours shortly after the Superstar Shake-up that he was going to be the next one to challenge the winner of Nakamura and The Phenomenal One.
This truly is heaven for independent wrestling fans.
