Exclusive: Michael Elgin Arrested In Japan For Stealing

It looks like it might be awhile before we see Michael Elgin again… literally.

Michael Elgin was scheduled to wrestle on the July 10th Pro Wrestling NOAH event in Shizuoka, but it was announced that he would not be appearing, and no reason was given as to why he was pulled from the card.

I can now confirm the reason for Michael Elgin’s absence is due to the fact that he was arrested last weekend in Japan for stealing. Sources confirmed to me that Elgin was arrested for stealing protein powder, and that he is currently still in jail (at the time of this writing).

Word going around is that Elgin could be facing up to 5 years in jail, unless a potential deal is arranged where the charges are dropped but he would be deported and never be allowed to return to Japan again.

Elgin also arrested back in July of 2021 in the United States for violating a protection order filed by his ex-fiance.

We will keep you updated as more information about Michael Elgin’s most recent arrest in Japan becomes available.
