Karl Fredericks out of NJPW Super J-Cup tag match due to injury


Karl Fredericks is out of tomorrow’s Super J Cup card.

The company reported this morning that Fredericks is injured and won’t be able to compete on tomorrow’s card. Fredericks wasn’t a part of the tournament, but was set to take place in a tag team match, teaming with Ren Narita against Hikuleo and KENTA.

As a result of the injury, Kevin Knight has replaced Fredericks in the match. Knight will be making his debut for the promotion, having previously participated in the September 2019 LA Dojo tryout. 

The other tag match on the card will have Rocky Romero and Fred Rosser team up to take on JR Kratos and Danny Limelight of Team Filthy.

The rest of the card will feature the eight man, single elimination tournament. Clark Connors will take on Chris Bey, ACH will face TJP, Rey Horus will take on Blake Christian, and El Phantasmo will face Lio Rush in the opening round.

Hiromu Takahashi mentioned following his win at the Best of the Super Juniors 27 finals that he would like to face the winner of the Super J Cup tournament.
