It’s been close to one year since Hiromu Takahashi was sidelined with a serious injury, but the NJPW wrestler put out a video on Monday seemingly teasing his return.
Takahashi posted a video on social media captioned “Everyone needs healing” in which the wrestler draws a picture of his signature toy cat, Daryl.
The video ends with text that seems to translate into something about being healed, then the date of June 5 is shown. This is the final day of NJPW’s Best of the Super Juniors tournament.
As you’ll recall, Hiromu injured his neck last year during a match against Dragon Lee at G1 Special in San Francisco. The injury occurred when the wrestler landed on his head during a Phoenix-plex gone wrong, but he continued to wrestle and finished the match.
The following month he was forced to vacate the IWGP Junior Heavyweight Championship.
Additional matches set for Wednesday’s BOSJ event include the finals between Shingo Takagi and Will Ospreay, as well as Jon Moxley’s NJPW debut against Juice Robinson for the United States Heavyweight Championship.
Watch Hiromu Takahashi’s teaser below.
