Which Match Will Headline the “Beast in the East” Tokyo Show?, News on the Event’s Commentary Team, Lesnar vs Kingston & More

Nick Paglino

As noted, Brock Lesnar vs Kofi Kingston, Kevin Owens vs Finn Balor for the WWE NXT Title, and John Cena and Dolph Ziggler vs Kane and King Barrett are all confirmed matches for the “Beast in the East” WWE Network special airing live from the Tokyo Dome on Saturday morning. The Wrestling Observer is reporting the tag team match featuring John Cena will likely main event the show, as it’s being advertised locally as the main event for the night.

Lesnar vs Kingston won’t main event as that will be a squash match, and although the NXT Title match has been heavily promoted, it’s not being billed as the main event.

In related news, Michael Cole and Byron Saxton will be handling commentary for the Tokyo Dome show, and it’s likely the two will be calling the show from WWE Headquarters in Stamford, CT.
