Backstage News on NJPW’s COVID-19 Safety Measures at Recent Shows


NJPW made its return last month with the New Japan Cup that included safety measures being implemented at the shows to protect the wrestlers and staff.

Dave Meltzer reported in the latest edition of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter that wrestlers have to have temperature checks two times a day and keep a log of every person they had contact with between the tests.

They are tested constantly, locker rooms are zoned and have staggered entry. Employees have to limit the amount of conversations they have. The ring and ringside area are disinfected between matches.
