Changes made to NJPW’s 2/15 show.

New Japan Pro-Wrestling is in the middle of their Golden Series tour and on 2/15, they presented a show from Korakuen Hall. Ahead of the event, the company made a change to the match card as Hiroyoshi Tenzan is sidelined with a pre-existing right knee injury.

Tenzan was scheduled to tag with Toru Yano, Satoshi Kojima, Master Wato and Ryusuke Taguchi to take on Suzuki-gun (Minoru Suzuki, DOUKI, Taichi, Yoshinobu Kanemaru & El Desperado). The match was converted into a four-on-four. DOUKI was removed from the Suzuki-gun lineup.

The following is from NJPW1972.com:

Hiroyoshi Tenzan is currently dealing with a pre-existing injury to his right knee, and as a result will not be wrestling on February 15’s Korakuen Hall card.

We apologize to fans who were looking forward to seeing Tenzan wrestle and appreciate your understanding.

The following change has been made to tonight’s card in light of Tenzan’s absence:

7th Match

Toru Yano, Hiroyoshi Tenzan, Satoshi Kojima, Master Wato & Ryusuke Taguchi vs Minoru Suzuki, DOUKI, Taichi, Yoshinobu Kanemaru & El Desperado —> Toru Yano, Satoshi Kojima, Master Wato & Ryusuke Taguchi vs Minoru Suzuki, Taichi, Yoshinobu Kanemaru & El Desperado

Tenzan has been active throughout the Golden Series tour and competed on both nights of Wrestle Kingdom 16 in the Tokyo Dome along with the NJPW versus NOAH show.
