Shingo Takagi and BUSHI pulled from NJPW event due to fevers


NJPW has pulled IWGP World Heavyweight Champion Shingo Takagi and BUSHI from today's Summer Struggle event due to both having a fever. 

NJPW announced that the two would be undergoing PCR tests and would be absent from the show. They were scheduled to take part in an eight-man tag main event on the untelevised event in Shizuoka. 

Shingo and BUSHI are currently also scheduled to take part in eight-man tags at Monday and Tuesday's Summer Struggle events in Korakuen Hall. No announcement has been made regarding their status for those shows. 

Both appeared on Saturday's untelevised show in Nagano. They teamed with Tetsuya Naito and SANADA in the main event, defeating EVIL, Yujiro Takahashi, Gedo and Dick Togo.

Shingo is still currently scheduled to defend the IWGP World Heavyweight Championship against EVIL in the main event of night two of Wrestle Grand Slam in MetLife Dome in Saitama on Sunday, September 5.
