WWE updated the lineups for their Japan tour next month, adding Seth Rollins to the main events as he is back on the active roster. 

Interesting to note that Ric Flair, despite being currently written off TV, is still being advertised.

WWE NXT Women's champion Asuka and Shinsuke Nakamura are also on the tour.  Asuka will be facing Becky Lynch and Natalya in singles bout.  Nakamura will be facing Bray Wyatt on the first night of the tour, a first-time ever bout.  On the second night, he will face Kevin Owens for the first time in WWE.  The two faced off in ROH at an event in NYC before either signed with WWE.
