Major Japanese Wrestling Star Dies


Rusher Kimura died yesterday due to pneumonia after kidney failure complications. This has gotten a lot of coverage in Japan in the mainstream media as he was a major star of the 70s and 80s. Kimura was in every major promotion ever- he wrestled in the original JPW, New Japan, UWF, All Japan (his main home from 84-00) and NOAH until his 2004 retirement.
