[Misc. News] It has been announced that Masashi Aoyagi  has formerly announced his commitment to retire from pro-wrestling following a traffic accident earlier in May.
This news follows a severe injury that he has suffered to his right leg following a motorcycle and car accident. On May 9, Aoyagi took part in a bike tour, a hobby of his, though things did not go as planned as he found his right leg and foot pinned between a sports car and his bike. He was then taken to the emergency room where it was determined that he suffered at least 30 fractures throughout his leg. Due to his age this injury his physician advised him to stop competing as it will be hard to bounce back up to top form, especially being that he focuses so much on his right leg for kicks, and so Aoyagi has formally announced his retirement as of June 1st.
Aoyagi is a practitioner of karate and owns his own dojo known as a “Seishin (Sei = Sincere – shin = heart/mind/spirit) Kaikan (Meeting Hall)”. He made his professional debut in 1989 against Atsushi Onita in FMW and he then also competed against Jushin Liger in NJPW in June of 1990.
In 2013, Aoyagi suffered a detached retina in his left eye and later announced that he suffered from blindness due to the injury. Though he declared that he would continue competing with the issue not stopping him.
Aoyagi has been affiliated off and on with Pro Wrestling NOAH since the promotions formation, along with this student Akitoshi Saito. Due to this NOAH is current in-talks to host his official retirement ceremony in the near future. More details of which will be released when they are known.
Aoyagi though mentioned that he will be hard at work rehabilitating himself as he plans to be able to walk again sooner rather than later. He also thanks all of his fans and supporters as this decision does not come easy, but it is for the best at this time.
