Honma & Tsuji miss NJPW Sengoku Lord as precautionary measure

A match at this morning's NJPW Sengoku Lord event was changed due to two wrestlers missing the show as a precautionary measure.

NJPW announced that Tomoaki Honma and Yota Tsuji would both miss Sengoku Lord as a precautionary measure due to taping a television show with someone who later tested positive for COVID-19. It was noted that Honma and Tsuji are both in good health and weren't in close contact with the person who tested positive:

On July 17, Tomoaki Honma and Yota Tsuji recorded a television show with another cast member who tested positive for COVID-19 yesterday, July 24.

Both are in good health and were not in close contact with the infected party. They will not be appearing on Sengoku Lord out of an abundance of caution.

We apologize to fans who were looking forward to seeing Tsuji and Honma wrestle, and appreciate your understanding.

Honma, Togi Makabe, Satoshi Kojima & Ryusuke Taguchi were supposed to face Tsuji, Tomohiro Ishii, Toru Yano & Gabriel Kidd at Sengoku Lord. It was changed to Makabe, Kojima & Taguchi defeating Ishii, Yano & Kidd in a six-man tag match. Makabe pinned Kidd to get the win.
