New Japan Pro Wrestling continues to put health and safety of its employees and fans first. Just one day after cancelling the Best of Super Juniours tour, NJPW has postponed the Wrestle Dynasty show.

The event, which was set to take place on August 22 at Madison Square Garden has now been pushed back an entire year, with a new date in 2021 to be announced in due course. Of course, with this event happening at MSG, it was set to be a huge deal for the company and it was no doubt a tough decision to make.


In their official statementNJPW said, “In response to the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic, and its continued effect on social gatherings all over the world, NJPW has arrived at the decision to postpone Wrestle Dynasty, which was scheduled to take place on August 22 2020, to a date in 2021 to be announced.”

The state of New York is currently still battling with the effects of the Coronavirus pandemic and a stay-at-home order is still being maintained there, with measures also being extended in Japan. NJPW has no shows scheduled for June or beyond, and it remains unclear when they will return to action.

Kanemaru Pulled From NJPW Best Of The Super Jr. Due To Injury, Replacement Announced

NJPW World Tag League

New Japan Pro-Wrestling has just announced that Suzuki-Gun star Yoshinobu Kanemaru has been pulled from the upcoming Best of the Super Jr. tournament due to a knee injury.

With the annual tournament just days away from opening night, NJPW will look to stand-out Young Lion Yuya Uemura to fill the void. With the bracket shortened to just ten competitors this year, Uemura has a major opportunity to wrestle top names in the junior heavyweight division every single night of the month-long round robin.


Uemura gave the following statement translated by NJPW’s English website:

‘I know that my entry is as a result of Kanemaru’s injury, so I can’t say I’m delighted, but when I heard the news, I did get fired up.

Last year I was able to enter the Super Jr. Tag League, and unfortunately I ended on zero points. That was a real let down, and I know it was a disappointment for my partner Tiger Mask. I won’t ever live that down. In a league like this, everybody is trying to win. That’s what I learned last year in the tag league; I have to be aiming for the top the whole time.

I’ve been saying for months now that I want to make it into BoSJ, get results, and then maybe be able to challenge for the IWGP Junior Heavyweight Championship. Well, I just about achieved the first goal. Now just to get results!
