Will Ospreay Pulled From Tonight’s G1 Climax Event Due To Injury

New Japan Pro Wrestling has just announced that IWGP Junior Heavyweight champion Will Ospreay will not be competing in tonight’s G1 Climax matchup, where he was scheduled to compete in tag action along with partners Yota Tsuji and Yuya Uemura against Shota Umino, Jushin Thunder Liger, and Kota Ibushi. NJPW also reveals that Ospreay’s status for his July 18th A-Block bout against Kota Ibushi is yet to be determined.

Ospreay would release his own statement on Twitter alerting fans that he’ll do his best to be able to continue with the tournament.

In the past, superstars who were unable to compete for a tournament matchup would be counted as a loss, with little time to make the match up due to the G1’s grueling schedule.
