All Japan Pro Wrestling

All Japan Pro Wrestling held a press conference today to announce Zeus will leave the company after December 31.

Zeus is leaving to focus on running Osaka Pro Wrestling, which he became the owner of on August 26.

Zeus said it has been his dream to manage Osaka Pro since 2014. In the spring of this year, he started to start preparing for his goal of reviving Osaka Pro next year.

Zeus expressed his gratitude to All Japan, saying he believes he fought in the best era of All Japan alongside the likes of Joe Doering, Jun Akiyama, Kento Miyahara, Shuji Ishikawa, SUWAMA, Takao Omori and others.

All Japan and Osaka Pro have agreed to build a friendly relationship and Zeus will continue to compete in All Japan whenever possible.

Losing Zeus, the leader of Purple Haze, is a significant blow for All Japan. Even approaching 40 years old, he is still one of the absolute best wrestlers in the company.
