Juice Robinson Off Wrestle Kingdom and More NJPW News

New Japan Pro Wrestling announced this morning that a fractured orbital bone will force Juice Robinson off this years Wrestle Kingdon. Juice was set to face KENTA for the IWGP US Heavyweight Championship Briefcase.

After the announcement was made that Robinson is of the show,Satoshi Kojima, the 50 year old bread-eating legend issued a challenge to KENTA for the match at the Tokyo Dome. Highly likely that KENTA will accept and NJPW will make it official.

Toru Yanu was crowned the 2020 King of Pro Wrestling after defeating Bad Luck Fale in a “bodyslam or last corner pad” match, after executing a body slam on the big man. The match was a total shit show. Seriously.
