One of New Japan Pro Wrestling's top stars won't be available for the company's United Stated takeover.

It was announced that Kota Ibushi will miss the entire New Beginning in USA tour, set to begin on January 24 in Tampa, due to Influenza. In a statement, the company put out the following:

"Kota Ibushi and New Japan Pro-Wrestling would like to sincerely apologize to fans who were looking forward to seeing him compete. We appreciate your understanding."

As a result, Ibushi will also unable to attend the scheduled meet and greet in Miami on January 30. An opportunity for a refund for that event can be found via the NJPW site. Ibushi out has resulted in a number of matches being altered. Here are the following changes to the cards:
