Kind of like I figured, nothing much was said further to what could be happening in All Japan. All of the wrestlers are still under contract until July 1st, so we could expect an announcement either later on today (which would be 7.1 in Japan) at the earliest.
I have compiled a post on my tumblr page of what has been going on for the last month…
Pretty much it is guaranteed that close to 10 wrestlers will be leaving the promotion, but we will not know exactly “who” until Shiraishi or All Japan addresses the situation in due time.
