    Shinya Hashimoto passed away at approximately 9:30 a.m. Monday morning in Yokohama, Japan. His death is believed to have been due to a brain aneurism. He collapsed suddenly and was rushed to the hospital and is believed to have been dead on arrival. No other details are available at this moment. He was 40. Hashimoto, a many time IWGP champion and Hall of Famer, had, along with Hulk Hogan, headlined more successful huge live pro wrestling events than any wrestlers in the history of the business. He had been out of action for several months due to a shoulder injury and the collapse of the original Zero-One promotion. He was recovering from surgery in December.



Damn, that sucks. Hashimoto was one of the first puro wrestlers I really got into and enjoyed his work. I mean he wasn't roided up or a muscle head, but he kicked ass, I liked that about him.

It's a damn shame to read about that.

R.I.P. Hashimoto

Garza was one of my favorite WCW luchadores in '97/'98 or thereabouts; that corkscrew plancha from the top rope onto the floor (hitting several other wrestlers on the way down) was always a highlight of Nitro, in my opinion. RIP.
