It was announced that Yuma Aoyagi has suffered a fracture to his right ankle on January 25 and that he will need surgery to treat the injury. At this time All Japan has not vacated the tag belts from Aoyagi and Naoya Nomura, but it was acknowledged to be a likely possibility.
Ryoji Sai, who defeated Aoyagi on the 1/25 show with an Achilles tendon hold, stated that he intends to challenge for the Asia Tag belts either one way or another. Sai just started a new reign as the All Asia Heavyweight Champion and stated that he intends to become the All Asia Tag Champion as well.
The January 27 show has also been updated to reflect upon Aoyagi’s absence.
