Jado, who was scheduled to team with Ryusuke Taguchi against Hiromu Takahashi and BUSHI on July 3 in Korakuen Hall, has presented with a fever. Although he has tested negative with both antigen and PCR testing for COVID, he will not compete this evening out of an abundance of caution.

The following change has been made to this evening’s card:
Jado & Ryusuke Taguchi vs Hiromu Takahashi & BUSHI
Aaron Henare & Great-O-Khan vs Hiromu Takahashi & BUSHI
