As I’m sure you’re aware, last week we announced the cancellation of the remainder of the events on the Road to Dontaku Tour. Our latest 12 cancellations from April 19 in Korakuen to May 4 in Fukuoka join other events already cancelled from March 1 onward.
I know how much of a disappointment this is to fans who were looking forward to attending these events. Ticket holders are all being refunded however, and as we closely monitor the situation with regards to events after May 4, ticket sales have been suspended or delayed accordingly to make the process as easy as possible for fans.
NJPW have been taking the ongoing global situation very seriously from an early stage. Currently over 90% of our employees are working from home as we continue to do our civic duty as a company to prevent the spread of COVID-19. We, like you, are disappointed and frustrated at not being able to present the best professional wrestling on the planet on a live basis at the current moment in time.

In my opinion, this is the complete opposite of how WWE has handled this current situation. New Japan has been leaning on their vast archive and other unique content to help until this situation becomes a little more manageable. If you go back to early March though New Japan has taken this situation from very seriously from the start and will not let up until the situation changes. I give props to New Japan for handling the situation as well as they have and attempting to make best out of a terrible situation.
