As noted before, KUSHIDA was pulled from Wednesday’s Burning Spirit 2022 event for New Japan Pro Wrestling due to him currently suffering from a suspected skin disease health issue.
NJPW recently provided a health update stating that KUSHIDA was recently diagnosed with hand, foot, and mouth disease and as a result they have pulled him off the card of their Burning Spirit 2022 event this Friday in Takamatsu, Japan.
Thank you for supporting New Japan Pro-Wrestling.
Following his absence from September 21’s Kumamoto event, KUSHIDA will not be cleared to compete on September 23 in Kumamoto. After being assessed for a suspected skin disease, KUSHIDA has been diagnosed with hand, foot and mouth disease.
We apologise to fans who were looking forward to seeing KUSHIDA wrestle and appreciate your understanding.
The following change has been made to Friday’s card:
KUSHIDA, Jado, Toru Yano, Hiroshi Tanahashi & Jay White vs Gedo, Taiji Ishimori, Doc Gallows, Karl Anderson & Jay White –>
Jado, Toru Yano, Hiroshi Tanahashi & Jay White vs Taiji Ishimori, Doc Gallows, Karl Anderson & Jay White
NJPW joins fans in wishing KUSHIDA a full and speedy recovery.
