The winner from each block will advance to the semifinals. The final semifinal spot will be decided via a special battle royal where a participant who was defeated in tournament play will have the chance to gain entry back in.

Other Japanese promotions, such as AJPW and NJPW, have also canceled live events for the past couple of months.
