Harold Meij recently said the following in a blog on the NJPW website.
“Even though we have escaped from the difficult times when we couldn’t play at all due to the corona wreck, the impact still remains.”
“I wanted to continue this mission responsibly until the day when I could say ‘I’ve returned to the state before Corona’ and ‘New Japan Pro-Wrestling is completely okay’, but I have to say goodbye to everyone. It’s time to have to. Please forgive me for the announcement at this time during the ‘G1 CLIMAX 30’ due to the general meeting of shareholders.”
