Juice Robinson has been stripped of the IWGP United States Championship.

On Friday night, New Japan Pro Wrestling announced that a new champion will be crowned at NJPW Dominion.

The company announced that Robinson had been stripped of the title after he sent the company a video saying he wouldn’t be appearing for his title defense against Will Ospreay and SANADA at the event.

For what it’s worth, Robinson recently missed the NJPW Best of the Super Juniors Finals due to appendicitis issues.

You can check out the official announcement below:

On Friday June 9, New Japan Pro-Wrestling was in receipt of a video from Juice Robinson, in which he stated that he would not be present for his IWGP United States Heavyweight Championship three way match at Dominion.

In fact, Robinson had initially agreed to the championship match Sunday in Osaka Jo Hall. Having now reneged on this agreement and refusing to attend in Osaka, NJPW is hereby stripping Robinson of his champion status and is demanding the return of the championship belt currently in his possession.

As a result of the championship vacancy, the previously scheduled IWGP United States Heavyweight Championship three way is now a singles match that will determine a new champion.

The card change is as follows:

9th Match- IWGP United States Heavyweight Championship Three Way

Juice Robinson vs SANADA vs Will Ospreay ->

9th Match- IWGP United States Heavyweight Championship

SANADA vs Will Ospreay

New Japan Pro-Wrestling apologises to fans who were looking forward to seeing Juice wrestle, as well as for the confusion and inconvenience caused.
