One of the biggest stories to come out of Wrestle Kingdom 14 was the retirement of Jushin “Thunder” Liger. Below is his retirement statement translated to English:
“Retired at Tokyo Dome today! After all, the champion, Hiromu was strong. I can retire without any regrets. I am grateful for messages from various people such as Choshu and Nakamura. There will be a retirement ceremony tomorrow. I want to go like a Liger to the end.”
Liger’s retirement ceremony will be part of NJPW New Year Dash and will be available on the NJPW World streaming service.
