- At NJPW Destruction in Kobe, YOSHI-HASHI had his own Titus O'Neil moment as he crashed into the side of the ring as he ran down to help out his CHAOS stablemate, Kazuchika Okada, from Jay White's attack. Unfortunately for YOSHI-HASHI, he ended up legit slamming into the edge of the ring and busted himself open. NJPW put out a storyline injury update that YOSHI-HASHI was hospitalized after suffering a head and left shoulder injury due to the assault by Jay White.

- As noted, during his match at a Game Changer Wrestling event Joey Janela jumped from the top rope and had a tough landing on the floor, immediately grabbing for his knee. Janela has since posted an update on Twitter, "My knee is pretty swollen, but the good news is I can slightly bend it, slightly turn it and put pressure on it and baby step walk on it." Janela said he'll be getting an MRI this week to see if there's any damage to his knee.
