Juice Robinson off Wrestle Kingdom 15 due to injury
Juice Robinson is off Wrestle Kingdom 15 following an injury on a recent Road to Tokyo Dome show.
NJPW’s website announced this morning that as a result of a fractured orbital bone, Robinson will not be able to compete on both this morning’s Road to Tokyo Dome event or Wrestle Kingdom 15 next month. The company had just confirmed during today’s press conference that the match was scheduled for January 4. Robinson did not attend the event due to the injury.
The company’s website stated that “further announcements on the status of KENTA’s Tokyo Dome opponent will be made in due course.”
Robinson last competed in the main event of the Road to Wrestle Kingdom card on December 22. He teamed with Kota Ibushi and SHO in a losing effort against Jay White, KENTA, and Gedo.
Robinson was originally scheduled to compete this morning in a tag match with Toa Henare, facing KENTA and Jay White. Satoshi Kojima will replace Robinson on the card.
