The IWGP Jr Heavyweight Champion suffered a terrible injury while defending his championship against Dragon Lee in California last Saturday. During his title defense at the G1 Special in San Francisco, Hiromu Takahashi broke his neck in a botched spot in the match.
NJPW revealed earlier today that Takahashi has made it back to Japan and continues to undergo evaluation.
