Powell’s POV: New Dot Net staffer Anish Vishwakoti will have same day coverage of the event, which will be broadcast live on New Japan World with English commentary early Sunday morning . Due to the Easter holiday, I probably won’t see the show at a later date, but I am looking forward to seeing the main event and the other top matches on the show.
