New Japan Pro Wrestling seems to be back on schedule for their live events following the cancellation of their Burning Spirit Tour events. NJPW was forced to cancel several of their live events on the tour due to Typhoon Nanmadol.
On their webpage, the company wrote the following:
(Update: September 18 4:30 PM: update to reflect the cancellation of September 19’s Fukuoka event)
Thank you for supporting New Japan Pro-Wrestling.
As Typhoon Nanmadol is expected to make landfall in the south of Japan on September 18, NJPW has arrived at the difficult decision to cancel the evening’s Burning Spirit event in Beppu’s B-Con Plaza in the interests of safety, as well as Monday September 19’s Fukuoka Island City Forum card.
We deeply apologise for the disappointment caused, as well as for the short notice of this announcement. Refunds will be issued to all ticket holders; those requiring English assistance in the refund process can fill out a contact form at https://www.njpw1972.com/contact/inquiry/ with the category ‘ticket inquiries’.
Our scheduled live event in Kumamoto on Wednesday September 21 is currently set to proceed as planned; however attendees are encouraged to check English and Japanese web and social media for the latest information.
The tour also incorporated several AXS TV tapings. Reportedly, they are on schedule to return on Wednesday with a show in Mashki, Kumamoto, Japan. Events for Friday and Sunday are also still on schedule.
The G1 Climax semifinals are set to air on this week’s episode of NJPW on AXS TV. The following two matches will be featured:
* Kazuchika Okada vs. Tama Tonga
* Tetsuya Naito vs. Will Ospreay
Next week’s episode will be the finals of the G1 Climax.
