Kenny Omega has suffered a knee injury and will be most of the current NJPW Destruction Tour. Omega is dealing with a meniscus injury in his left knee.

The injury was first reported by Tokyo Sports earlier today, with the site reporting that Omega would be undergoing tests today.

(This is the English translation of the Tokyo Sports article).

Omega will be off the Destruction tour from September 7th through September 22nd. He plans to return for the Destruction In Kobe show on September 24th where he is scheduled to defend his IWGP United States Championship against Juice Robinson.

Omega’s injury will, of course, cause NJPW to change around all the matches that he was involved in during the tour.

The promotion has announced that his replacement will be the debuting Leo Tonga, the younger brother of Tama Tonga and Tanga Loa.

Leo, who debuted in November 2016 under the name HikuLe’o, is 6’8″, 280 pounds, and will tower over everyone in NJPW (yes, even Bad Luck Fale).

Leo made his debut in a match against NJPW Young Lion Henare back in November and has been working in the NJPW Dojo since January of this year.

We will keep everyone updated on Kenny Omega’s injury and recovery, and we all hope he has a speedy and full recovery.
