Twenty years after his debut match, Dick Togo has called time on his illustrious wrestling career in Japan with a Super No Vacancy show in Korakuen Hall. In the main event, Dick Togo defeated Gedo from New Japan Pro Wrestling with his trademark Diving Senton. After the match, Togo got on the mic and said when he began wrestling, he met four men who were his seniors: Gedo, Jado, Super Delfin and The Great Sasuke. Togo also said he had waited a long time to have a singles match with Gedo and he was thankful to finally get it.
Togo was accompanied by many wrestlers from his past during the retirement ceremony. His protégés Antonio Honda, Daisuke Sasaki, Yuki Sato and Yasu Urano were in his corner for the main event and each handed him a bouquet of flowers, Masao Orihara and Masato Yakushiji both made an appearance, the Michinoku Pro crew got together with Kaientai*DX getting one last group shot together and Togo even got to see Hayabusa again. Sanshiro Takagi bowed to Togo, handed over a giant bouquet of flowers and was given the Pedigree one last time. Togo finished the ceremony by telling everyone he was really lucky to know so many people over the years, from the fans to the wrestlers. He hopes to see them again when he finishes his tour of the world. After that, Togo thanked the audience and the show ended.
Dick Togo will spend one more year wrestling around the world before he retires for good. But for now, his wrestling career in Japan is over.
