New Japan Pro-Wrestling announced Monday it will return June 15, though fans will not be in attendance.
The Together Project will mark the first NJPW show since Feb. 26. Like so many other sports leagues across the world, NJPW has been on hiatus because of the COVID-19 pandemic.
The card will be made public at bell time on the day of the event.
Reece Kelley Graham of the Dallas Morning News noted the New Japan Cup will begin the day after the return event and feature the following bracket:

NJPW's announcement came after WWE moved its events to the company's Performance Center in Orlando, Florida. In March, Brent Brookhouse of CBS Sports relayed that WWE moved WrestleMania 36, as well as its weekly Raw and SmackDown television shows, to Orlando.
WrestleMania 36 was initially scheduled to take place at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, Florida.
WWE, like the UFC, has continued without fans amid the pandemic.
