• AEW Wrestler Suspended For Recent Actions

At Saturday’s NJPW Capital Collision show, AEW wrestler Juice Robinson was scheduled to face Fred Rosser (fka Darren Young in WWE).

However, the match didn’t happen because Juice attacked Fred before the match. He beat Fred down with the ringside chair that was reserved for his wife, fellow AEW star Toni Storm.

NJPW suspended Juice for his actions and issued the following statement:

“Thank you for supporting New Japan Pro-Wrestling.

On April 15 at Capital Collision, a scheduled match between Juice Robinson and Fred Rosser ended in a no contest when Robinson attacked Rosser before the bell, and also assaulted an official.

New Japan Pro-Wrestling holds the safety of its competitors and staff at the highest priority, and after careful consideration, has determined that Juice Robinson be suspended effective immediately and until further notice.

As a result, Robinson will not compete at Collision in Philadelphia. NJPW apologizes for the sudden card change and any inconvenience and disappointment caused.”

Instead of facing Juice, Lance Archer went on to face Fred Rosser and won at Collision in Philadelphia on Sunday night.

Archer will now face will face the winner of Will Ospreay vs. Hiroshi Tanahashi for an IWGP United States Title match against Kenny Omega.
