Japan is no longer in a state of emergency and they will start empty arena shows shortly. The idea of bringing in live fans is still a long way off in Japan. They are taking a lot of precautions when opening up during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Dave Meltzer noted on Wrestling Observer Radio that Japanese pro wrestling companies looking to bring in stars from outside the country will have an issue. Anyone coming in will need to quarantine before they are allowed to wrestle.
“All foreign talent would have to come to Japan two weeks early and then quarantine in Japan before they would be allowed to wrestle. So, you know there would be more cost involved for freelancers.”
A lot of additional steps are going to need to be a part of life if the COVID-19 pandemic is going to slow down. They aren’t taking any additional risks in Japan and hopefully, everything goes smoothly which will allow for a faster reopening.
