New Japan Pro Wrestling issued the following press release announcing that company superstar Minoru Suzuki, who missed yesterday's New Japan Cup finals due to a fever, will also miss today's Dominion special from Osaka-jo Hal. Details are below.
On July 10, Minoru Suzuki developed a fever, and as a cautionary measure, will not be present for the New Japan Cup or Dominion events on July 11 & 12.
Since wrestling on July 3, where Coronavirus antibody and antigen testing all showed negative, Suzuki has had no contact with any other wrestlers.
As a result of Suzuki’s absence, the following change has been made on tonight’s New Japan Cup final card:
Ryusuke Taguchi, Yuji Nagata, Kota Ibushi & Hiroshi Tanahashi vs Minoru Suzuki, El Desperado, Taichi & Zack Sabre Junior –>
Ryusuke Taguchi, Yuji Nagata, Kota Ibushi & Hiroshi Tanahashi vs Yoshinobu Kanemaru, El Desperado, Taichi & Zack Sabre Junior
We apologize to fans who were excited to see Minoru Suzuki wrestle, and appreciate your understanding.
