- Earlier this week it was reported NJPW Announcer Chris Charlton's role would be minimized as he would be only providing translations for English fans, and no other commentary. While NJPW was fine with Charlton's role, apparently TV Asahi (a partner of NJPW World) and other "outside forces" felt he didn't have the proper voice to help call the action. In this week's Wrestling Observer Newsletter it was reported that both New Japan and TV Asahi were flooded by fans who were against this change. There was enough support that Charlton will now resume his normal role at the booth going forward.
- PWG has announced more entrants for this year's Battle of Los Angeles tournament that will take place on September 19, 20, and 22 at the Globe Theatre in Los Angeles. Here are the revealed names so far: Brody King, Joey Janela, Lucky Kid, Fenix, Tony Deppen, Jake Atlas, Caveman Ugg, Bandido, Orange Cassidy, Mick Moretti, Darby Allin, Artemis Spencer, Jonathan Gresham, and A-Kid.
