New Japan Pro Wrestling announced today that YOH has been pulled from the ‘Best of the Super Juniors’ tournament due to a shoulder injury. A replacement will be named soon.

YOH was injured at NJPW Sakura Genesis 2024, as he dislocated his shoulder and suffered labrum damage.

You can check out the official announcement below:

“Thank you for supporting New Japan Pro-Wrestling.

During a match for the IWGP Junior Heavyweight Championship at Sakura Genesis, YOH sustained an injury that necessitated the match being stopped. YOH went on to have a full medical assessment, and it has been determined that YOH sustained a dislocated left shoulder as well as damage to the shoulder labrum.

As a result of his injury, YOH will not compete in Best of the Super Jr. 31, beginning May 11 in Chiba. We apologise to fans who were looking forward to seeing YOH wrestle, and appreciate your understanding. A replacement for YOH in the tournament will be announced at a later date.

In another announcement, New Japan Pro Wrestling stated that Great-O-Khan and Yuya Uemura have named their choices of stipulations for their KOPW title match at NJPW ‘Road to Dontaku’ later this month.

Meanwhile, Uemura opted for a Catch Rules match with a 61-minute time limit and two-out-of-three falls. No strikes will be allowed, only throws and submissions are legal.
