New Japan Pro Wrestling has provided an update on Hiromu Takahashi, who injured his neck during the G1 Special in San Francisco.
The injury occurred during a Phoenix-plex gone wrong from Dragon Lee and NJPW’s website reports Hiromu was taken to the hospital after the match.
For those who missed it, the Los Ingobernables de Japon stable member continued to wrestle after hitting the top of his head and reportedly may have collapsed when he walked backstage.
According to NJPW, Takahashi is “in a state that can sit and talk with consciousness” — which sounds like a step in the right direction — while undergoing examinations.
No additional information was given, but we’ll report back once more is made available.
