Powell’s POV: Both events will be broadcast on the New Japan World streaming service with English commentary from Kevin Kelly and Don Callis. It’s interesting that Marty Scurll is teaming with Cody and Hangman Page against Kenny Omega. The three-way match between Kushida, Gordon, and Takahashi should be terrific.
