Kota Ibushi Illness Update, Will Miss Rest Of NJPW New Beginning Tour

According to Hochi News, New Japan Pro Wrestling superstar Kota Ibushi is suffering from an illness known as Mallory Weiss Syndrome, a painful condition that involves damage to the esophagus and stomach boundary, as well as bleeding from the mucous membrane. Ibushi had previously been pulled from events due to influenza, and new reports state that he will be off the remainder of the New Beginnings tour, including the big events in Sapporo and Osaka.

Ibushi had re-signed a lifetime contract with NJPW last January. His last worked match was the New Year’s Dash event following his string of losses at the two-night WrestleKingdom 14. Most of his tour matches have been re-booked, with CHAOS member Rocky Romero filling in for certain bouts.

Stay tuned.

Kota Ibushi's illness seems to be far worse than initially thought. According to a report by Hochi News, the Golden Star who missed the NJPW US tour due to influenza, informed on his Twitter that he is suffering from Mallory Weiss syndrome, a condition in which the boundary between the esophagus and the stomach is damaged, and the mucous membrane is vertically torn and bleeding. Repeated vomiting can increase abdominal pressure, causing strong pressure on the mucous membrane from the lower esophagus to near the entrance to the stomach. It is expected that Ibushi, who had just renewed his contract with New Japan Pro Wrestling on January 18th, will miss the remainder of the New Beginning tour, which runs until February 9th, including “THE NEW BEGINNING in SAPPORO” and “THE NEW BEGINNING in OSAKA” shows.
