As we noted before, former WWE World Heavyweight Champion Brock Lesnar is advertised for the July 4th live event at the Ryougoku Sumo Hall in Tokyo. He is currently scheduled to wrestle Kofi Kingston at the event.
According to latest reports, Brock Lesnar is going to Japan to meet retired Wrestling Legend Masa Saito (AWA World Heavyweight Champion, 2x IWGP Tag Team Champion, 2x WWF World Tag Team Champion).
Below is what Wrestling Observer’s Dave Meltzer posted:
“Lesnar and Brad Rheingans wanted to go to Japan to see Masa Saito. Just figured since he was going anyway, make it tax deductible, get his trans paid and work one show.”
