Despite Typhoon Hagibis hitting Japan, NJPW King of Pro Wrestling will take place today, but some wrestlers weren’t able to make it in for their matches due to the weather. IWGP US Champion Jon Moxley and Zack Sabre Jr. are out of the event, forcing NJPW to make some adjustments to the card.
Moxley was set to defend against Juice Robinson in a No DQ Match, but the title is now vacant and it will be Robinson vs. Lance Archer in a regular title match.
Join us for live coverage. Below is the updated card.
IWGP Heavyweight Championship
