More changes were made to NJPW Summer Struggle.
On Sunday, NJPW announced that Shingo Takagi and BUSHI were pulled from the August 16 NJPW Summer Struggle event due to COVID protocols.
Both men will miss the August 17 NJPW Summer Struggle as well.
Far East Connection (Gedo & Dick Togo) and Roppongi 3K (SHO & YOH) were scheduled to meet in the Super Junior Tag League, but the match has been ruled a double forfeit due to Far East Connection missing the event and Roppongi 3K dissolving.
Thank you for your support of New Japan Pro-Wrestling.
On Sunday August 15, Shingo Takagi and BUSHI presented with a fever on arrival at a live event in Shizuoka. In accordance with NJPW’s COVID-19 protocols, both wrestlers did not compete on the card and have undertaken PCR tests. Both continue to be absent from live events while awaiting results, while contacts are also absent as a precautionary measure.
We apologise for any disappointment and concern caused, and appreciate your understanding.
The following changes have been made to tonight’s card.
Toru Yano, Togi Makabe & Tomoaki Honma vs Chase Owens, Yujiro Takahashi & Jado
Tomoaki Honma vs Great-O-Khan
Shingo Takagi, Tetsuya Naito, SANADA & BUSHI vs Satoshi Kojima, Hiroyoshi Tenzan, Hirooki Goto & YOSHI-HASHI
Toru Yano & Togi Makabe vs Chase Owens & Jado
SHO & YOH vs Dick Togo & Gedo
Hirooki Goto, YOSHI-HASHI, Hiroyoshi Tenzan & Satoshi Kojima vs Taichi, Zack Sabre Jr, Minoru Suzuki & DOUKI
As a result of their absence, Gedo and Dick Togo forfeit their Super Jr. Tag League match. Far East Connection end the league at 0-5. Additionally, Roppongi 3K have dissolved as a team and therefore tonight’s planned Far East Connection vs Roppongi 3K match is a double forfeit, both teams finishing the league at zero points.
Fightful will have results from NJPW Summer Struggle following the conclusion of the event.
