Japanese Wrestling Legend dies after Suplex move
 

Mitsuharu Misawa, a Japanese professional wrestler, died from a subsequent heart attack caused when his opponent performed a suplex move on him during a tag team match ni Hiroshima, Japan. He was 46.

His opponent managed to grab Misawa during the match, and slammed him to the platform mat in an otherwise common suplex move. However, Misawa was rendered unconscious as a result.

The match was stopped, and Misawa was immediately attended to before being dispatched to the hospital. He was declared dead after admittance.

Misawa’s popularity in Japan was arguably similar to Hulk Hogan’s or The Rock’s in the United States, according to reports. Misawa had been AJPW Triple Crown Heavyweight Champion five times, GHC Heavyweight Champion on three, and was also named as the Wrestler of the Year by the Wrestling Observer Newsletter three times. Misawa also founded the Global Professional Wrestling Alliance (GPWA) in 2006.
