Akihiko Ito was a 4-year veteran who was part of the most recent NOAH rookie class that debuted in December 2005 along with Ippei Ota, Atsushi Aoki & Genba Hirayanagi. Unlike the others he had perennially been stuck near the bottom of the Jr. Heavyweight ranks and, despite having a couple of tournament wins, was used primarily as a jobber although he got a win occasionally, but usually against one of the aforementioned fellow ’05ers.
Ito retired in February 2010. He had been inactive for about a month beforehand due to what was only called “bad health”.
