New Japan made an announcement on that there was a change to the line up of the event tonight:

A wrestler had a fever in the morning and is undergoing a thorough examination and PCR and antibody testing.

The match for the IWGP Jr. Heavyweight title between El Desperado vs YOH has been removed from the event.  Also, a Suzuki-Gun vs. CHAOS match.

Japan had declared a third state of emergency due to the pandemic on April 23, 2021.    The government imposed strict guidelines on various businesses.   New Japan is taking these guidelines seriously.

Wow!   Fantastic match!   I do not know how these two men survived a beating like this.    United Empire never interfered which was awesome.   A good clean fight without shenanigans.

Ospreay took the mic and thanked Takagi.   He said it is time for redemption.    Ospreay repeated his challenge to Okada.   

O-Khan took the mic and translated for the fans.  He announced the names of the United Empire and that they would headline Wrestle Grand Slam at the Tokyo Dome.

Despite the change in the card, the main event is totally worth it.   Check it out on New Japan World.

In the interview area, Ospreay put over Shingo again.   He warned Okada that he is coming for him.   He calls in United Empire and they all toast to their victory.
