Death of a Legend

Mitsuharu Misawa, a legend of wrestling in Japan, passed away last night during a match for his promotion, Pro Wrestling NOAH. He was being hit with a back drop and was immediately knocked out cold. The referee stopped the match and CPR was administered in the ring.

Misawa will always be looked at as arguably the greatest pro wrestler ever. He turned pro wrestling into an art form while innovating the sport at the same time. I think everyone should see a video of Misawa in action. He was simply amazing.

Below is a video on Youtube showing the actions following the horrific event. It is a 9 minute piece and everyone is visibly shaken. This video contains disturbing and shocking footage of this event. VIEW AT YOUR OWN RISK.

My condolences to his family and all who knew him.
