Gabe Kidd has not been cleared to compete at RevPro’s High Stakes event in the UK on Sunday.

The promotion issued a statement on X that he would not appear “as a result of injuries sustained in last week’s historic NJPW cage match.”

Kidd was part of the five-on-five cage match between Bullet Club War Dogs and United Empire at last Sunday’s NJPW New Beginning in Osaka event.

He was due to face Shingo Takagi at tomorrow’s RevPro show in London, which is headlined by Will Ospreay vs. Michael Oku.

Kidd’s place will be taken by Trent Seven.

The RevPro statement in full:

Unfortunately, as a result of injuries sustained in last weeks historic NJPW cage match, Gabe Kidd has not been cleared to compete at tomorrows High Stakes. A late call which nobody (including Gabe) wanted to make, however a call we had to make. Whilst we are disappointed we believe the health of our wrestlers is paramount and that we should be thinking of tomorrow, not just today.

Trent Seven, coming off the back of his show stealing performance against Connor Mills, will now take his place competing against Shingo Takagi. We thank you for your understanding & hope you will join us in wishing Gabe Kidd a speedy recovery.
