NJPW Issues Injury Update On Kota Ibushi

New Japan Pro-Wrestling (NJPW) has taken to its official website to post an injury update regarding Kota Ibushi.

Ibushi legitimately got injured during the G1 Climax final against Kazuchika Okada and couldn’t continue so Okada was crowned the winner of the tournament by stoppage.

Here’s what NJPW posted on its website, including Ibushi’s expected recovery time:

On October 21’s G1 final, Kota Ibushi suffered an injury in the ring that led to the match being stopped. After treatment from ringside medical staff, he was taken for a thorough evaluation.

The evaluation revealed a right anterior dislocation of the shoulder, and joint lip damage. Recovery is expected to take two months.

Further updates will be provided as to Ibushi’s return when more information is available.

We apologise for any concern caused, and join fans in wishing Ibushi the very best in his recovery.

We wish Ibushi a safe and healthy recovery.
