[NOAH News] In a sad bit of news Pro Wrestling NOAH formally announced that Takeshi Morishima will be retiring due to a repeated worsening of his physical condition. The 36 year old Morishima has suffered many injuries over the last several years and has been unable to make a complete comeback without the injuries repeatedly flaring up. Morishima was unable to compete in the currently ongoing Global Tag League due to both his right shoulder, left knee, as we as his left elbow causing him too many issues to compete in the full tour and league. Morishima went to undergo tests with a physician and it was also determined that he was suffering from high levels of “hemoglobin HbA1c” in his blood, at-risk diabetic. Due to all of these things the doctor told him that he was at risk for further injury and or even fall to the state of being crippled if he continued competing at a high level. NOAH is regretful to announce this news and hopes that everyone understands and supports Morishima on his decision. From what I have been told it appears that Morishima will not be competing in a final retirement match, due to the mentioned further risks, and that means his final match was on 4/11 in a 6 man tag with Maybach Taniguchi and Mitsuhiro Kitamaya against Nicholls, Haste, and Super Crazy. There will though be a retirement ceremony held for Morishima in the near future, the date of which is still currently under discussion.
