Manabu Nakanishi Announces His Retirement Next Month

Manabu Nakanishi has announced at the post-show press conference for Wrestle Kingdom 14 that he will be retiring from the ring due to a neck injury.

Nakanishi revealed his retirement will take place during an event on February 22 at Korakuen Hall.

Below you can read Nakanishi's statement:

I have decided to retire on February 22 this year. As a result of a neck injury, I haven’t been able to wrestle to the level I wanted, and rather than drag things out, I wanted to draw a line in the sand. Rather than think about how I could do x, y, z a long time ago, I want to put everything that I have into February 22. I want to head into this retirement having given everything I have and end things properly.

Nakanishi t debuted for New Japan Pro Wrestling in 1992 and has held the IWGP Heavyweight and tag team titles over his near 30 year career. He won the G1 Climax tournament in 1999.
