Jushin Thunder Liger has had a lengthy career spanning over three decades and he has wrestled for every major wrestling company but this legendary run will finally be coming to an end next year.
Liger recently spoke to media during the press conference for 2019 New Japan Cup and announced that he will be competing in his retirement match during next year’s Wrestle Kingdom 14 event.
He said that he has realized he has no more room for growth and he will like to go all over Japan and the world to show himself one more time before hanging his boots:
I will retire next year in January at the Tokyo Dome. I have nowhere else to grow. I can still do it, still get in there, but have no room for growth. What shall I do with the next ten months? I was Liger for thirty years, all over the world. So while I don’t want to call this a retirement tour, I want to go all over Japan and the world and show myself to everyone one more time.
Jushin Liger made his wrestling debut back in March 1984 and since then Liger has wrestled for promotions like WWE, WWE, NJPW and TNA.
