Powell’s POV: The event will be streamed on the New Japan World streaming service and is available for purchase on the FITE.TV app for $24.99. The start time on FITE is listed as early Sunday morning at 1CT/2ET. This looks like a strong event on paper and I’m especially looking forward to the Moxley vs. Suzuki and Takahashi vs. Lee matches.
