Back in early March, NJPW star Tomoaki Honma had to be stretchered from the ring during a show in Okinawa after a spot during a 6 man tag match left him unable to move. Though at first reports were very vague and really didn't give much detail most of us knew that it was going to be bad. The was to the C-3 and C-4 vertebrae in his neck, and after some tension where it wasn't clear what his future exactly was, at this point Honma has began to talk again and is moving his extremities once again.
One would think this is awesome news and really enough to be happy with, but that's not all as Honma has reached another milestone. For the first time since the incident he's already standing on his own. This following surgery and physical therapy of course but still this is an extremely positive sign for the veteran. At this point I would like to wish Tomoaki Honma continued success as he moves to becoming 100% once again and continues on his long road back to the ring.
