Yota Tsuji and Tomoaki Honma were pulled for NJPW Sengoku Lord for precautionary reasons.
NJPW announced Tsuji and Honma did a television show with a cast member who tested positive for COVID 19. As a precautionary measure, both men were pulled from the July 25 NJPW event. Both men are said to be in good health.
The two men were scheduled to take part in an eight-man tag team match on opposite teams. A simple change was made to the card as the eight-man tag was changed to a six-man tag.
On July 17, Tomoaki Honma and Yota Tsuji recorded a television show with another cast member who tested positive for COVID-19 yesterday, July 24.
Both are in good health and were not in close contact with the infected party. They will not be appearing on Sengoku Lord out of an abundance of caution.
We apologize to fans who were looking forward to seeing Tsuji and Honma wrestle, and appreciate your understanding. The following change has been made to tonight’s card:
Togi Makabe, Tomoaki Honma, Satoshi Kojima & Ryusuke Taguchi vs Tomohiro Ishii, Toru Yano, Yota Tsuji & Gabriel Kidd
Togi Makabe, Satoshi Kojima & Ryusuke Taguchi vs Tomohiro Ishii, Toru Yano, & Gabriel Kidd
