WWE now has several working relationships with independent companies around the world. One of these companies, owned by WWE NXT UK star and former NXT Tag Team Champion Trent Seven is Fight Club: PRO, and it appears that Seven’s company will be heading to Japan for their debut show.
A number of notable Superstars are included on the card, which seems to be, at least in part, promoted by Sendai Girls in Japan. Some familiar names to fans include Jimmy Havoc, Millie McKenzie and Meiko Satamura.
What is most notable about this show is 205 Live Superstar and Japanese native Akira Tozawa is listed front and center on the poster. Tozawa will be returning to Japan to compete for Seven’s promotion, though his opponent is not currently known.
The promotion itself tweeted out the show announcement, which is titled “Project Tokyo” and is likely Seven experimenting with a new market to continue the uprise in the value of his growing promotion.
We wanted our debut show in Japan to be something special. A showcase of what we are, but also, to put on an event that stands out from the rest!!!
Japan, we are coming!!!
Get ready for PROJECT TOKYO!!!

205 Live General Manager Drake Maverick tweeted that he gave permission for Tozawa to head to Japan to compete in the show. At this time, Tozawa has simply retweeted the show announcement and made no further public comments on working the show.
Given my relationship with @Fightclubpro over the years myself & their management team have came to an agreement to loan @TozawaAkira from #205Live – This will be an incredible show! #TrainFightWin https://t.co/f1vAg67Sym
