NJPW Stars Injured and Updated Card for The New Beginning in Osaka Due to Injured NJPW Stars

Published

NJPW star Lance Archer suffered a back injury during the IWGP Tag Team Championship match at The New Beginning at Sapporo. In addition, El Desperado also suffered an injury during The New Beginning Tour shows. Therefore, they won’t be competing at The New Beginning in Osaka.

As a result, Takashi Iizuka will be taking Lance Archer’s place to team up with Davey Boy Smith Jr. in the IWGP Tag Team Championship 3-Way Tag Team Match at The New Beginning in Osaka and in addition, Taichi will replace El Desperado in the six man tag team match between CHAOS and Suzuki-gun.

Here’s the updated card for The New Beginning in Osaka:
