Former WWE star/NJPW star Matt Sydal arrested in Japan

According to reports from Nikkan Sports in Japan, Matt Sydal (the former Evan Bourne in WWE) was arrested in Japan on 9/23 because he allegedly had 2.12 grams of cannabis oil at Kansai Airport.

Sydal has not been heard from since 9/29 when he said that he was held up in Hawaii due to “passport trouble.” He later said that he is the kind of guy that likes to go off the grid sometimes but it turned out that he was dealing with legal issues in Japan. He is likely to be deported and banned from returning to the country and, if that happens, then he would not be able to work for New Japan Pro Wrestling again.

I’m not condoning getting on an international flight with cannabis but I should point out that cannabis oil is frequently used to help with pain. In 2012, he was involved in a car accident that broke his foot in four places. He dislocated his foot in five places and has been dealing with that pain ever since.
