New Japan Pro Wrestling has announced that Taiji Ishimori is currently injured. The Bullet Club member was scheduled to perform at today’s Road To Power Struggle event but was pulled hours before the event.
NJPW confirmed via their English language site NJPW1972.com that “Taiji Ishimori will not participate in the event in Shizuoka at the Twin Messe Shizuoka South Building today, Thursday November 1st, due to a left ankle injury, which happened during the event in Nagano on October 31st.”
Ishimori has been teaming with Robbie Eagles for the Super Jr Tag League 2018 tournament. Eagles took part in a singles match against Yota Tsuji for the Shizuoka show. Eagles took the win over Tsuji with a Turbo Back Pack.
The severity of Ishimori’s ankle injury has not yet been revealed. Ishimori was not yet booked in a bout for the upcoming Power Struggle event in Osaka this Saturday. Ishimori and Eagles have already been eliminated from the Super Jr tournament so their involvement in the show would possibly been in a multi-man tag bout at best. We’ll be able to update you further as the story develops.
