OSPREAY HURT, JERICHO ON TANAHASHI, LIGER TRIBUTES AND MORE LEADING INTO WRESTLE KINGDOM NIGHT TWO

The belief among several we have spoken to is that Will Ospreay suffered an ankle injury (possibly a broken heel) performing the Sasuke Special last night against Hiromu Takahashi.  The severity has not been officially confirmed.

It should be noted the English language commentary team, led by Kevin Kelly, did a phenomenal job on Night One of Wrestle Kingdom.

We are told there was a wait in the area of one hour at some of the merchandise stands last night when the Tokyo Dome opened.

Chris Jericho released the following promo ahead of his bout with Hiroshi Tanahashi tonight:

There have been a ton of Jushin Liger tribute posts across the internet in the last day:
