The effects of Typhoon Nagibis has forced NJPW to move ahead and cancel an upcoming Road To Power Struggle show.
NJPW announced that the October 18 Road To Power Struggle event, originally scheduled to take place in Nagano, has been canceled as a result of damage being done to the area's infrastructure. This came after the typhoon had also flooded the New Japan Dojo right before the King of Pro Wrestling event.
The Road To Power Struggle tour begins on October 16 and then ends on November 1 with Power Struggle taking place on November 2. The shows leading up to Power Struggle will also serve as the matches for the Super Junior Tag League with November 2 serving as the tournament finals.
The thoughts of New Japan Pro Wrestling go out to all those affected by the weekend’s extreme weather in Japan. We sincerely hope for a speedy recovery and return to normalcy.
New Japan Pro Wrestling regrets to announce that as a result of Typhoon Hagibis, and the damage done to the Nagano area and surrounding infrastructure, Friday October 18’s Road to Power Struggle card, which was set to take place in the Nagano Sports Park Gymnaisum, has been canceled.
Refund procedures are currently being finalised, and will be announced online. Please retain your tickets.
All other events on the Road to Power Struggle tour will proceed as planned.
