Reactions to dangerous spots from NJPW's G1 Special Submitted by Aaron Rift on 07/08/2018 at 11:24 PM
As previously noted, it's believed that Hiromu Takahashi suffered a broken neck at Saturday night's NJPW event and was still hospitalized as of Sunday morning.
Several people in the wrestling industry have already reacted to the news. Here are comments from Disco Inferno and Sean "X-Pac" Waltman:
I wonder if a broken neck is going to wake up the pro wresting "media" to talk about how unsafe and dangerous the @njpwworld style is instead of marking out for the "match quality.". They lose journalistic integrity if they don't. That is an irrefutable fact.
Ive had my neck broken twice in the ring. 2nd time had it surgically repaired. I was able to make a full recovery & return to Wrestling for the most successful run of my career. Takahashi walked out of the ring on his own. He's not done yet. Mark my words.
