Hiromu Takahashi injured, misses NJPW Road to Castle Attack show


Hiromu Takahashi was taken off the February 20th Road to Castle Attack event in Yamagata due to injury.

NJPW’s Japanese website announced that Hiromu was off the card due to a left shoulder injury and would be examined at the hospital. He last wrestled on February 19, teaming with Shingo Takagi to defeat Kota Ibushi and Tomoaki Honma.

As a result of the removal, two matches were changed on the card. Takagi and Hiromu were scheduled to face El Phantasmo and Taiji Ishimori, but that was changed to a singles match where Takagi defeated Yujiro Takahashi. ELP and Ishimori instead defeated Yota Tsuji and Yuya Uemura in the opening match.

Tetsuya Naito has also taken dates off due to a knee injury he suffered on the February 16th show. However, he is currently slated to face Kota Ibushi for the IWGP Intercontinental title on the second night of Castle Attack on February 28 in Osaka-jo Hall.
