Tomoaki Honma and Yota Tsuji cleared to return by NJPW

After being pulled from Sengoku Lord this past weekend as a precautionary measure, Tomoaki Honma and Yota Tsuji have been cleared to return by NJPW.

NJPW announced on Saturday that Honma and Tsuji would both miss Sengoku Lord due to taping a television show with someone who later tested positive for COVID-19. NJPW wrote that Honma and Tsuji were both in good health and weren't in close contact with the person who tested positive.

Today, NJPW announced that Honma and Tsuji have both tested negative for COVID-19 and will be returning at Wednesday's non-televised Summer Struggle tour show:

On July 25, Yota Tsuji and Tomoaki Honma were both pulled from the Sengoku Lord in Nagoya as a precautionary measure. 

Since then, both wrestlers have undertaken PCR testing and are confirmed negative for Coronavirus. They are both cleared to return to competition from Wednesday July 29’s non-televised event in Hamamatsu. 

Honma, Tsuji and NJPW thank you for your support.

Honma and Tsuji also missed Summer Struggle nights one and two on Sunday and Monday.

Night four of the Summer Struggle tour is taking place at Korakuen Hall in Tokyo, Japan this Friday and will air live on New Japan World. Honma will team with Togi Makabe against Shingo Takagi & SANADA at the show, while Tsuji, Satoshi Kojima, Ryusuke Taguchi & Gabriel Kidd will face Hirooki Goto, Tomohiro Ishii, Toru Yano & YOSHI-HASHI.
