NJPW provides update on KUSHIDA.
Earlier this week, New Japan Pro-Wrestling announced that KUSHIDA had been pulled from their September 21st show due a suspected skin disease.
In an update on the situation, they noted that KUSHIDA has been diagnosed with hand, mouth and foot disease. Per the C.D.C., the disease is common in children under five-years-old but anyone can contract it. It is usually not serious but is very contagious. As a result, he is off the 9/23 show.
KUSHIDA will be absent from tomorrow's event in Takamatsu after being diagnosed with hand, foot and mouth disease.
