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.
In what is being billed in a massive double main event, Kevin Owens will take on Brock Lesnar in singles competition, while John Cena and Shinsuke Nakamura meet in the squared circle for the first time ever. 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.
Mark your calendar for Wednesday, June 29th as the WWE Network brings you this exclusive, star-studded night of professional wrestling. We’ll have more on this developing story this weekend on our weekly geek podcast, the Adult Podcast for Kids.
