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.
