    His situation is really grim. If you want to donate to help his family with his medical costs you can do it here:

    (1USD is about 110 yen just fyi)

    I would hope his story would be a cautionary tale to some of the other guys wrestling in Japan. They put on incredible matches, but man their matches would still be great if they skipped some of the really dangerous stuff they do.

    I believe he got injured during a relative innocuous move but he likely had cumulative damage from years of stiff matches
