– Above is video of NXT General Manager William Regal announcing the WWE Network Supercard event for July 4th. As noted, the event will air live from Tokyo, Japan at 6:30am EST at Sumo Hall.
Besides Finn Balor vs. NXT Champion Kevin Owens, the updated announced roster for the live special includes Brock Lesnar, Chris Jericho, WWE United States Champion John Cena, The Lucha Dragons, Paige and Neville. Other Superstars advertised but not mentioned in tonight’s announcement include King Barrett, Dolph Ziggler, WWE Divas Champion Nikki Bella, Cesaro & Tyson Kidd, WWE Tag Team Champions The New Day and the injured Hideo Itami.
With Balor now facing Owens on the show, there’s some speculation that Lesnar could end up facing Jericho. Jericho vs. Balor was scheduled but Jericho is now without an opponent. As noted, this is the same event that Lesnar vs. Kofi Kingston has been advertised for but that could change now that it will be airing live.
