New IWGP NEVER Openweight champion KENTA was taken to a nearby hospital following his victory over former champion Tomohiro Ishii at NJPW’s Royal Quest event from the Copper Box in London England. Fans in attendance said the bout was a brutal back-and-forth affair, with KENTA clearly suffering some type of injury (possible concussion) during the action. He has since taken to Twitter to provide an update:
This is the best way to start as NEVER CHAMP in the hospital I’m totally fine Thank you for booing me London.
