NJPW star Kota Ibushi recently spoke to the NJPW website. During the interview Ibushi discussed empty arena shows that some promotions have been holding during the Coronavirus outbreak.
“There’s a lot of different ways of thinking about it, but completely honestly, I’m not a fan of empty arenas. There’s of course a lot of merit to watching video, and you can get a closer sense of the action in the ring perhaps. The thing is though, I’m not really about showing off what moves I can do. I want to be engaging a live crowd. In that sense, I really don’t see the point of running events if there aren’t going to be any people there.”
