Original story:

NJPW has canceled their show set for Sunday morning.

The company announced on their website that with Typhoon Nanmadol expected to make landfall in southern Japan, NJPW has decided to cancel Sunday’s Burning Spirit event that was scheduled to take place in Beppu’s B-Con Plaza. Refunds will be issued to all ticket holders, and those who require English assistance can fill out a contact form here.

Shows set to take place in Fukuoka on September 19 and Kumamoto on September 21 are currently scheduled to take place, however those attending are encouraged to check English and Japanese “web and social media” for the latest involving the typhoon.

The key match set for the show on the 18th was a tornado dog cage survival match for the NEVER Six-Man Openweight Tag Team titles, with champions Hirooki Goto, YOSHI-HASHI, and YOH defending against House of Torture members EVIL, Yujiro Takahashi, and SHO.
