KUSHIDA is a true veteran in the pro wrestling world as he has been working as a pro wrestler since 2005. He made a name for himself in NJPW and won multiple titles all around the world. KUSHIDA was recently pulled from tomorrow’s New Japan event.

KUSHIDA, who was slated to compete in a live, non-televised event on September 21 in Kumamoto, will skip the competition out of prudence. According to PWInsider.com, KUSHIDA was taken out of the Kagoshima event on Saturday due to a fever.

KUSHIDA was removed from Saturday’s event in Kagoshima after presenting with a fever. After testing negative for COVID-19, he underwent consultation with doctors who diagnosed him with a suspected skin disease. 

We apologise to fans who were looking forward to seeing KUSHIDA wrestle, and appreciate your understanding. 


The following change has been made to Wednesday’s card.

Hiroshi Tanahashi, Toru Yano, Tama Tonga, KUSHIDA & Jado vs Jay White, Karl Anderson, Doc Gallows, Taiji Ishimori & Gedo ->

Hiroshi Tanahashi, Toru Yano, Tama Tonga & Jado vs Jay White, Karl Anderson, Doc Gallows & Taiji Ishimori 

KUSHIDA attended consultation with medical professionals who gave him a probable skin condition diagnosis after his COVID-19 test result came back negative. KUSHIDA recently had a lengthy interview with the official NJPW website where he discussed a variety of subjects. He spoke about his choice to quit WWE and join NJPW during the conversation.

KUSHIDA said he has signed a contract that will last the rest of his wrestling life. It sounds like he will be a regular for NJPW Strong and possibly even make appearances for AEW. We wish him a speedy recovery.
