NJPW continues to have visa issues, keeping talent from appearing stateside.
Pro Wrestling Force, an Independent company out of Illinois, is set to hold a show this weekend in Riverton, IL. The company has been promoting NJPW talent EVIL as part of the show, but due to visa issues, EVIL won't be able to make the event.
"This morning at 8am came news any company would dread," the company wrote in a statement. "Evil was turned away at customs yesterday coming into the country. From what we were told By Tiger Hattori, was the type of visa the us is requiring is different than the visas they first got for talent 2 years ago. So with renewal they were under the assumption the same process and type of visa was valid. Evil was coming to visit friends in the states prior to making the appearance on Sunday and was turned away at his arrival airport in the US."
We have some terrible news, we hope that you take the time to read through the statement. We hate to let any fans down, but hope you agree we've taken the steps to rectify this situation. pic.twitter.com/D1umx8xrY2— prowrestlingforce (@prowrestlingfo1) February 13, 2019
