Thank you Akira Taue!
After 25 years of competing as a professional wrestler, Akira Taue saw this chapter of his life come to an official close as he finally retired from in ring competition. Taue will now be dedicating himsself full time as Pro Wrestling NOAH’s president.
Taue was joined by many fellow wrestlers for this special occasion to honor all the years he has dedicated to the sport and with his retirement comes the close of “Four Devas Era (1990’s All Japan)”, with Misawa, Kobashi, and Kawada all no longer actively competing in the ring.
Taue has been a multi-time champion from the AJPW Triple Crown Championship, AJPW World Tag Team Champion, Champion Carnival winner, AJPW World Tag League Winner, and then lastly as a former GHC Heavyweight Champion in NOAH.
8,500 spectators were apart of today’s show at the Ariake Colosseum which also saw all of the GHC belts defended in the second half of the show. Taue teamed with his fellow students in Takeshi Morishima, Takashi Sugiura, and Genba Hirayanagi as he took on Genichiro Tenryu, Tatsumi Fujinami, Masao Inoue & Kentaro Shiga. Taue officially won the match after pinning Inoue following his trademark “Ore ga Taue (I am Taue)” chokeslam.
Full results from the show.
