Following a three-year absence, New Japan Pro-Wrestling revived the Super J-Cup in 2019. The tournament was held over three nights in August 2019 along the West Coast of the United States and featured talent from across the wrestling world, including Soberano Jr., Jonathan Gresham, Will Ospreay, Amazing Red and YOH. El Phantasmo won the tournament, defeating Dragon Lee in the final.

Once again, the field will be comprised of talent from multiple promotions, including IMPACT Wrestling's TJP and Chris Bey, Game Changer Wrestling's Blake Christian and Ring Of Honor's Rey Horus. Former WWE Superstar Lio Rush will also be making his NJPW debut at the tournament.
