Welcome to Frank Pozen's Big Bad Blog. A lot of folks have been asking me to update them about my recovery. So I thought I would start a blog primarily to do that but also to talk about other topics of interest including the wrestling business and whatever else I can think of. I plan to update this on a regular basis so check back and leave a comment if you wish.

Atsuko Emoto retiring from pro wrestling
So there's been some confusion about this for the last couple of days but it now looks like Atsuko Emoto AKA Bullfight Sora is retiring from pro wrestling on May 30. At yesterday's Pro Wrestling WAVE show, they did what appeared ro be a goofy comedy angle where Bullfight Sora announced that she would retire from WAVE. Apparently fans in attendance didn't believe her because the character was supposed to be retired a couple of years ago and WAVE owner GAMI is notorious for goofy comedy angles. Emoto got angry, grabbed the mic and said that she was retiring for real. WAVE has booked May 30 as her retirement show. Apparently like a lot of the wrestlers, Emoto was very upset by last week's events at the NEO show when the company announced that they are closing. And to add insult to injury, she lost a loser leaves NEO match to Mima Shimoda. So it seems she made this decision in the last week. I haven't seen anything about her MMA future. She has a match on the May 23 JEWELS show against HIROKO and she works at the DEEP dojo. So it wouldn't surprise me if she takes MMA more seriously in the future. Also, Kyoko Kimura announced that she will take an extended break after the May 21 Revolution Amandora show to recover from nagging injuries. But she says she will return and RA will continue.
