Shota Umino off NJPW Resurgence due to travel restrictions

NJPW has announced that Shota Umino will no longer be a part of the Resurgence event scheduled for Saturday, August 14 in Los Angeles at The Torch at LA Coliseum. 

Umino is currently on excursion to the United Kingdom and RevPro Wrestling. NJPW said in their statement that travel restrictions between the UK and the United States have made it impossible for Umino to attend. 

Additionally, Umino has been pulled from the NJPW Strong tapings set for California on Monday, August 16. Those tapings will be the first ticketed shows in the history of NJPW Strong. 

Umino has not made an appearance in an NJPW ring since leaving for his international excursion in September 2019. 

Umino and Jon Moxley made up the short-lived and popular Death Riders tag team in the summer of 2019. Moxley took Umino under his wing in storyline after defeating the Young Lion at NJPW Dominion 2019 in Osaka.
