UPDATE: Thursday April 13 10:30 AM JST: After Orange Cassidy’s successful defence on AEW Dynamite, his match with Gabriel Kidd is now an AEW International Championship bout.
Thank you for supporting New Japan Pro-Wrestling.
Eddie Kingston, who was scheduled to face Gabriel Kidd on Sunday April 16 in Philadelphia has sustained an undisclosed injury and will be unable to compete.
We apologise to fans who were looking forward to seeing Kingston wrestle and appreciate your understanding.
In place of the originally scheduled match, Gabriel Kidd will now face AEW International Champion Orange Cassidy. After Cassidy’s successful defence against Buddy Matthews this Wednesday in Milwaukee for AEW, he will put the title on the line against Kidd.
Originally conceived as the All Atlantic Championship, the title was born at Forbidden Door last June. Cassidy is the title’s second champion, and this is the first defence in an NJPW ring.
NJPW joins fans in wishing Eddie Kingston a full and fast recovery.
