Prime Minister Yoshihide Suga declared a new state of emergency from July 12 through August 22 as COVID 19 infections rise in Japan.

From NJPW:

Thank you for your continued support of New Japan Pro-Wrestling.

On July 25, ‘Godzilla vs Kong presents: Wrestle Grand Slam in Tokyo Dome’ will proceed as planned, with NJPW continuing its commitment to safe events as held across Japan with fans for the past year.

However, in light of the recent announcement of another state of emergency across Tokyo and the subsequent restrictions this enforces on live events, we regret to announce that ticket sales for Wrestle Grand Slam will end at midnight JST on July 11.

We deeply apologize for the inconvenience this causes. We look forward to welcoming fans on July 25, with fan safety given the utmost priority.

For fans watching from home, Wrestle Grand Slam will be live in English or Japanese on NJPW World, and in English or French on FITE.

Wrestle Grand Slam will be headlined by Shingo Takagi defending the IWGP World Heavyweight Title against Kota Ibushi.
