Naomi Susan yesterday announced she will resign from her role as “Union Representative” on 4th October after Union holds its 10th Anniversary show at Korakuen Hall. Susan has been managing the brand since 2007 and said her decision is for personal reasons. During her time in charge she saw Union grow as well as its wrestlers bond together. However she feels her help in running the brand is no longer necessary and there is not much else she can learn or experience in her current position. Since she is not a wrestler she does not think “retirement” is the right word to describe her departure. There is currently no decision for her replacement. By announcing this now it gives Union time to prepare for the future.
Susan first considered leaving a year ago and consulted with Isami Kodaka, Shuji Ishikawa and Cherry as time went by. All three were surprised when they were first told of her decision. Kodaka said Susan has been a part of the company for so long that she could be seen as the Mother Of Union. He is happy to see Susan will leave with a smile. Cherry said she will feel lonely because she spent so much time with Susan away from the shows. She and everyone else in Union will cheer for Susan when she leaves. Ishikawa described Susan as an older sister who always supported him even when he was selfish. He will return the favour.
During her time in pro wrestling, Naomi Susan has been a valet for Poison Sawada JULIE and worked behind the scenes booking foreign wrestlers for both Union and DDT, including getting Bob Sapp to work with DDT in 2011. She is also a two time Iron Man Heavymetalweight Champion.
