A month before Wrestle Kingdom, Naito had surgery on his right eye. Naito admitted to having vision issues in May of last year when he was seeing double in the ring. In October, he was seeing triple in the ring. One of the muscles supporting the eye was paralyzed and he "couldn't focus his vision with both eyes open." He was seriously thinking of retirement.

When I heard this I fell to my knees. Naito wrestled under those conditions before WK, and still has problems Jesus. Naito gets alot of flack, but dude is one tough sob to wrestle with bad vision problems like that. I wear Glasses, and I went a Year without Glasses when I was a Teenager and I can only imagine being a Wrestler and how difficult it is to even see steps in front of you. I'm happy he got the Surgery and his vision seems to be better than before, thank goodness for that.
