Minoru Suzuki, known as the ‘Murder Grandpa’ for his contributions to the pro wrestling world, recently collapsed during a match. Thankfully, he has since been discharged from medical care.

At 56 years old, Suzuki has had a distinguished wrestling career spanning decades, notably achieving success in NJPW as a former IWGP Intercontinental Champion, NEVER Openweight Champion, and IWGP Tag Team Champion. He has also appeared in AEW.

During a recent match at Tenryu Project, Suzuki collapsed during the main event, prompting officials to halt the bout. He was quickly taken to the hospital, where he was diagnosed with a concussion. Fortunately, Suzuki has since been released from medical care.

In a reassuring update on Twitter, Suzuki mentioned undergoing CT scans and tests that showed no major issues. He recalled the incident clearly, including how he fell. He assured fans that he remembered everything and expressed gratitude for their concern.


”I’ll report it for now. I did a CT scan and other tests, but there were no particular problems. I was kicked out of the hospital with a “If you’re feeling fine, go home!” feeling. I remember everything. I even remember how I fell at the end. So there’s no need to worry. For now, I’ll just say one thing… “If I see you again, I’ll beat you all up!””

We are certainly glad that Minoru Suzuki is alright as fans want him to wrestle at his best for as long as possible. After all, no other wrestler could ever think of pulling gun during a match in a train like Suzuki did.
