A major match has been added to Joey Janela's Spring Break 7.
Joey Janela has announced that he will face Kota Ibushi at Joey Janela's Spring Break 7 on March 31. The show will be held as part of The Collective 2023 at the Ukrainian Cultural Center in Los Angeles, California.
Ibushi, a former IWGP World Heavyweight Champion, recently left NJPW when his contract expired in January. He has not wrestled since October 2021, as he suffered a shoulder injury during his match against Kazuchika Okada in the finals of the 2021 G1 Climax Tournament.
My whole career has been dedicated to being selfless, young guys & gals or older that are giving it or gave it all to this business & getting them the respect they deserve!— “The Bad Boy” Joey Janela (@JANELABABY) March 23, 2023
But it’s my TIME! I will put on the best performance of career!
