Night 11 of New Japan Pro-Wrestling's Summer Struggle 2020 Tour was scheduled to begin earlier today at the Uwajima City Overall Gymnasium in Uwajima, Japan.
The show was cancelled just before bell time, however, and NJPW has since announced one of their wrestlers developed a fever and the event was called off to safeguard fans and the other performers.
"Today, Uwajima, Ehime prefecture was scheduled to see night 11 of the Summer Struggle tour.
"Unfortunately, one of the wrestlers scheduled to appear had developed a fever. The wrestler immediately undertook additional COVID-19 testing, but New Japan Pro-Wrestling is still awaiting results. Under NJPW’s Coronavirus guidelines, and acting in the best interests of health and safety for other wrestlers and fans in attendance, the decision was made to cancel tonight’s event.
"Refunds will be made available to all those who purchased a ticket for tonight’s event, and more information on this situation will be provided as soon as it becomes available.
"Thank you for your understanding and support."
