WWE announced the following:

WWE NXT comes to Japan for the first time this December

For the first time, WWE NXT travels to Japan on Saturday, Dec. 3, as NXT Superstars bring their high-octane brand of sports-entertainment to the Land of the Rising Sun. This must-see Live Event marks WWE's first appearance in Japan's historic Edion Arena, and WWE's first time back in Osaka, Japan in over two years. WWE COO Triple H announced the historic event on Twitter.

The NXT Universe in Japan will get a chance to witness NXT Champion Shinsuke Nakamura and NXT Women's Champion Asuka back in their home country. Though both performed at WWE's Live Events in Tokyo last July, this will be the first time that Nakamura will return home as NXT Champion. Also performing will be Samoa Joe, Hideo Itami and Bobby Roode.*

Tickets for this show are available beginning Saturday, Oct. 1. Visit eplus.jp for complete information on tickets.
