NJPW cancels Sakura Genesis, Road to Dontaku events

Despite Japanese wrestling slowly starting to come back amid the coronavirus pandemic, New Japan Wrestling announced Monday that both the Sakura Genesis and Road to Dontaku events have been canceled.

The Sakura Genesis show was slated for Tuesday, March 31st at Sumo Hall while the Dontaku show was set for Saturday, April 11th in Sagamihara.

A statement read: "We deeply apologise to fans who were looking forward to these events. Ultimately, the health and safety of our fans, wrestlers and staff, as well as society at large is our utmost concern, and we will make announcements about events scheduled after April 11 upon careful monitoring of this developing situation."

New Japan's March schedule was canceled due to the pandemic which included the New Japan Cup and their 48th anniversary show. Their last event was a New Japan Road event on February 26th.

Pro Wrestling NOAH returned to action Saturday while Stardom is holding a one-night show at Korakuen Hall this Tuesday on their YouTube channel.
