Our hearts are with the family, friends and legions of fans as we celebrate the life of the great Antonio Inoki.

We lost Master Inoki today at the age of 79. His larger than life persona pale in comparison to the mark he has left on, not just Japanese wrestling but the wrestling world as a whole.

He will forever be an immortal figure in a mortal world.
