IMPACT Wrestling Announces Hiroshi Tanahashi vs Mike Bailey for LIVE NJPWxIMPACT Wrestling Multiverse United Show on 3/30 

The original match was Will Ospreay taking on “Speedball” Mike Bailey, however, Ospreay hurt his shoulder a few days ago in Japan, and after getting it checked out today, reported that it “was worse then it was originally suspected”, therefore, Ospreay has been pulled from the show and replaced with Tanahashi.

Mike Bailey is set to battle Jonathan Gresham this Friday at the LIVE Sacrifice event from Windsor, Ontario, Canada.

New Japan Pro Wrestling also just announced a new pre show match, which will be Yuya Uemura taking on Gabriel Kidd.

Yuya Uemura was with IMPACT for awhile, having matches with both newer talent and some veteran talent as well.
