NJPW announced this morning that top superstar and multi-time world champion Hiroshi Tanahashi has been pulled from the promotion’s upcoming Road To Dontaku events due to injury.
The Ace bruised his ribs at this past weekend’s Capital Collision event in Washington D.C., which was bad enough that he had to miss Collision in Philadelphia the next night. Full details can be found in the press release below.
Thank you for supporting New Japan Pro-Wrestling.
At Capital Collision on April 15, Hiroshi Tanahashi sustained a rib injury, and was absent from the following night’s Collision in Philadelphia.
