Davey Richards injured in auto accident, off New Japan PPV



New Japan announced today that Davey Richards was injured in an auto accident in the U.S. and is not coming in for tomorrow's PPV show in Fukuoka.

Richards & Rocky Romero were scheduled to defend the IWGP jr. tag titles against Tiger Mask & Jushin Liger.  The titles have been declared vacant.  There is no word on a date regarding when the titles will be filled, but it's not scheduled for tomorrow.

We will try and update with any information as to how this affects the 5/12 ROH show in Toronto where Richards faces Kevin Steen in what has been promoted all year as the company's biggest match.
