The earthquakes in Kumamoto, Japan that have left 42 people dead and over 1,000 injured has led to New Japan Pro Wrestling announcing their "Wrestling Hirokuni" pay-per-view on 4/29, has been canceled due to the aftermath of the natural disaster.

The show was set to be headlined by a special CHAOS-Los Ingobernables eight-man tag match and Kenny Omega defending the IWGP Intercontinental Championship against Michael Elgin.  There will be an update released in regards to that card tomorrow.

Special thanks to Chris Charlton (@reasonjp) for his help on the story.
