You had your last match in your hometown. That’s right. But it doesn’t make a difference
if it’s my hometown or not, I was able to let it all out in that match. Even though I lost tonight, What I had to do, what I wanted to show,
I believe I was successful. Even after losing, no regrets. You spoke in the ring in Osaka,
and today was another goodbye. Yes. It’s been 30 years since I became Liger.
I have lots of memories here in Fukuoka. Like fighting Sayama at the Fukuoka Dome.
And a mask vs mask match against Pegasus Kid. I’ve had many turning points in Fukuoka.
Also this is where I live. Although I was born and raised in Hiroshima,
I’ve been living in Fukuoka for over 25 years. So in that sense, the fact that I won’t
come back to Fukuoka to fight again, I may get sentimental about that later. However, I said the same thing in Okinawa, before.
And old-timers tears aren’t pretty. Imagine me sobbing. Gross. It could be nice if
I was a young lady. So, I definitely won’t cry. I don’t intend to show fans
me being sentimental. Until January 6th, I want to
keep going as this Liger. Wrapping up these matches,
I suppose you can now see the end of the road. Maybe. But it still hasn’t hit me yet. I still have a match in Kumamoto tomorrow,
and in Hiroshima a couple days later. So, my priority is to show my
best fight to fans. New Japan’s fight. I want to let it all out. After Hiroshima, I have a tour in Australia. And 3 more matches in Korakuen Hall. So, the tours will keep coming.
I don’t have time to be sentimental, yet. I’ll just go on as Liger. I want to keep getting in
the ring as a raging Liger. Are you having good time on your last tour? Well, there’s a lot I have to do. It’s so hectic.
I’m pulled in many directions. But that makes me wonder if I will
be burned out when all of this is over. It’s very fulfilling for me, now. I’m just running to the end. Until my retirement
ceremony on January 6th, I will keep running. So, to the fans, please don’t get so sentimental. Just support me as always. And if I slip, you can
laugh about it. Liger will always be Liger. I will keep going as same old Liger.
Please support me till it’s over.
