NJPW has announced more changes to line-ups for upcoming Golden Series events.
The company previously altered the cards for Sunday and Monday’s shows due to COVID-19 protocols, pulling Hirooki Goto, YOSHI-HASHI, Taiji Ishimori, and Jado from the events.
It has now been revealed that Jeff Cobb and Yuto Nakashima are not cleared to compete in their scheduled matches on the tour. Cobb has been recovering from a patellar tendon tear since suffering the injury at Wrestle Kingdom in January. Nakashima is currently out of action on a precautionary measure, after sustaining a blow to the head during Monday’s show.
