Stardom’s Himeka has stated she will be retiring later this year at the age of 25.
The performer announced on Friday that her retirement match will take place on 4/23 at Stardom’s All-Star Grand Queendom event at the Yokohama Arena with a follow-up retirement ceremony scheduled for 5/14 at Korakuen Hall.
In a statement, Himeka said she was hopeful of facing Maika in her retirement match and would like to have matches with Risa Sera, Kakeru Sakiguchi, and Chihiro Hashimoto before she ends her career.
I will retire from wrestling in May.
5 years into my career, I'm 25 years old.
I have no regrets about this.
Only a few shows left.
I will be big, strong and cute.
I will run through to the end in my own way.
Until the very end.
Please support me until the very end. https://t.co/uQMsRPfLQv
