Sato is off the upcoming All Japan shows.
To close out the new year, All Japan Pro Wrestling has presented a handful of shows this month, two of which are scheduled for December 21st and 25th.
Changes to the card had to be made because of an injury to Hikaru Sato. He suffered an injury while competing at a Tenryu Project event on December 11th. He is dealing with lower back contusion. Sato has been pulled from the upcoming All Japan cards as a result.

It was going to be Sato’s return to the company since his last appearance at the 50th Anniversary Show in September.
The upcoming 12/25 show for All Japan will feature two-time Triple Crown Heavyweight Champion Jake Lee’s final match in AJPW as his contract is set to expire.
