Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter (subscription requred) has just confirmed that on Wednesday, June 29th, the WWE Live Event in Honolulu, Hawaii will be broadcast on the WWE Network. While it’s not unusual for WWE to tape shows in exotic locales (see: WWE Beast in the East), this particular event stands out with one of the strongest cards of any WWE Network exclusive, including a lot of WrestleMania cards.

Scheduled to appear at the event are WWE Superstars John Cena, Brock Lesnar, Kevin Owens, Charlotte, and NXT wrestlers Asuka and “The King of Strong Style” Shinsuke Nakamura.

Japanese pro wrestling sensation "The King of Strong Style" Shinsuke Nakamura will take on WWE Superstar John Cena in Honolulu this June, exclusively on the WWE Network.

In the only other announced match as of this post, WWE Women’s Champion Charlotte will take on the Japanese Joshi sensation who has been sweeping the ranks of the NXT Women’s Division as of late, Asuka.
