Honaga never became the guy even with some great company but I have enjoyed most if the work of his I have seen. Reason for the retirement?


NJPW was trying to not-so-subtly push out some of its higher-paid veterans in a cost-cutting move. Honaga, Masa Saito, and a few other guys got severance packages to retire (I think Inoki and Choshu were wholly separate situations).


Amusing video, as Honaga goes from a wide-eyed clean-cut young boy to an opportunistic scuzzball before our eyes. I bet he'd end up being Matt D's favorite NJPW junior worker.
