Injury Report: An Old Tiger Goes Under The Knife
SportsNavi reports that at a press conference today to announce the next event for his Real Japan promotion, scheduled for 7/21 at Korakuen, Tiger Mask 1 (First Tiger Mask) also announced he will be hospitalized next week for left knee surgery. This injury apparently happened about a year ago but TM 1 worked through it, but decided that as he approaches 35 years as an active wrestler it was time to have it done in order to extend his career. The surgery is scheduled for late next week. It’s not yet known how long he’ll be out but at this time he is still scheduled for the Real Japan event on 7/21.
More as it becomes available.
