NJPW Issues Statement On Claudio Castagnoli’s Travel Issues Prior To Dominion


Claudio Castagnoli encountered travel complications while enroute to NJPW Dominion, leading to a reshuffling of the match order. Castagnoli teamed with Jon Moxley and Shota Umino at the show, unsuccessfully challenging Kazuchika Okada, Tomohiro Ishii and Hiroshi Tanahashi for the NEVER Openweight Six-Man Tag Team Championships.

NJPW promptly announced that unforeseen flight delays necessitated alterations to the scheduled lineup.


The official announcement reads as follows:

Claudio Castagnoli travel issues see card order change

Thank you for supporting New Japan Pro-Wrestling.

Claudio Castagnoli, who is scheduled to join Jon Moxley and Shota Umino to challenge for the NEVER Openweight 6 man Tag Team Championships at Dominion tonight, has experienced flight delays, and as a result the match order on this evening’s card has been changed.

The NEVER Openweight 6 man Championship bout, originally set to be the seventh match on the card will now be the eighth, semi main event bout.

The IWGP Junior Heavyweight Championship match will now be seventh on the evening.

We apologise for any inconvenience or concern caused, and appreciate your understanding.
