As a result of the injury, Naya is out of the King of DDT tournament. 

DDT Pro-Wrestling’s Yukio Naya is going to be out of action for the foreseeable future as he is sidelined with a broken ankle. 

The promotion pushed the news out on March 28th and in a follow up to that, it was shared that Naya is going to be replaced by Yusuke Okada in the King of DDT tournament. 

The injury occurred in a tag match on March 26th. Last week, Naya challenged for the KO-D Openweight Championship. He noted on Twitter that a doctor told him he’s looking at a two-to-three month recovery period. 

ご心配ご迷惑おかけします

足は動かないけど身体はめちゃくちゃに元気です

復帰まで2.3ヶ月くらいかかると病院の先生に言われました

なるべく早く復帰できるよう頑張ります

万全な状態で復帰するのでちょっとだけ待ってて下さい#ddtpro https://t.co/hkES38VCks
