In what appears to be a positive sign for the return of Japanese pro wresting, Japan has lifted its state of emergency.
Japan will slowly begin re-opening its economy in phases to keep residents safe amid the coronavirus pandemic.
In regards to sports, empty arena shows can begin being held on June 19. Nippon Professional Baseball in Japan has already been approved to begin its season on that date.
On July 10, 50% capacity up to 5,000 will be allowed. On August 1, 50% of max capacity will be allowed.
