With Will Ospreay unable to wrestle at the show, Over The Top Wrestling has announced his replacement for ScrapperMania 5.
Jushin Thunder Liger will be replacing Ospreay at ScrapperMania, which is taking place at National Stadium in Dublin, Ireland on Saturday, March 16. Liger's match for the show has yet to be revealed.
It was announced yesterday that Ospreay wouldn't be able to appear at ScrapperMania or OTT's show in Belfast on Sunday, March 24 due to conflicting commitments: "Due to other commitments, Will Ospreay can no longer appear at March 16th ScrapperMania [and] March 24th Live In Belfast. Both Will and OTT are gutted but the situation is unavoidable. We have worked hard (with Will) and have found star replacements."
The two shows are during NJPW's New Japan Cup tour.
Flip Gordon will be Ospreay's replacement at the Live in Belfast event. Gordon suffered an MCL tear in his right knee at a Ring of Honor show in January, but ROH announced that the injury wouldn't require surgery. ROH noted that Gordon would be able to return in time for April's G1 Supercard at Madison Square Garden.
