Jay White removed from NJPW events due to ‘heat stroke-like symptoms’

White will miss events in Hiroshima on August 9 & 10.

Jay White has been removed from two upcoming NJPW events due to heat-stroke symptoms. 

NJPW revealed on Tuesday that White will miss the August 9 & 10 events from Hiroshima. 

"Jay White, who was scheduled to wrestle in Hiroshima Sun Plaza Hall this evening, has been affected by heat stroke like symptoms and as a result will be removed from August 9 and 10 cards due to an abundance of caution. As an additional precautionary measure, White has undertaken COVID antigen testing, which has returned negative," reads 

White was not scheduled for any tournament matches on either show. His next tournament match is scheduled for August 16 against Tama Tonga. He currently sits atop the B Block with eight points and a perfect 4-0 record. 

On August 9, White was scheduled to team with Gedo, Bad Luck Fale & Juice Robinson to face Toru Yano, Kazuchika Okada, Hiroshi Tanahashi & Hirooki Goto. That match has now been changed to Okada, Tanahashi & Goto vs. Gedo, Fale & Robinson.

On August 10, White was scheduled to team with KENTA and Robinson against Lance Archer, Taichi, & TAKA Michinoku. He will now be replaced by Gedo in the match.
