New Japan Pro Wresting provided the following update on Hiromu Takahashi at NJPW1972.com.
On July 7, during the G1 Special in San Francisco event, Hiromu Takahashi sustained a neck injury and was taken to a San Francisco hospital for evaluation.
Takahashi was able to return to Japan today, and will proceed with treatment. We apologize for the delay in publishing this update, which was in order to ensure smooth and efficient transit for Takahashi at the airport. We deeply appreciate our fans’ concerns. Please stay tuned to https://www.njpw1972.com/ for further updates.
Powell’s POV: NJPW has yet to confirm reports that Takahashi suffered a broken neck during his match against Dragon Lee on Saturday. They have simply noted that he suffered a neck injury without providing any additional details. Hopefully the news that he was able to return to Japan is an indication that things are looking up for him.
